According to Jamie Partridge, next week’s full moon, that is also a partial lunar eclipse, has the potential to be rather harsh by revealing deeply buried memories and psychological trauma, as well as exposing “dirty laundry”, power struggles, abuse of power, manipulation, jealousy, and lies. Save for locking yourself away until these cosmic energies pass, it is a positive side to this.
Being at 24 degrees Capricorn, the full moon lunar eclipse combination is powerful and confrontational due to its close conjunction to Pluto. Intense emotional reactions, compulsive behavior, and power struggles are likely to result in a crisis. But there is more …
The lunar eclipse is also squared with the dwarf planet Eris, named after the Greek goddess of strife and discord. Eris is a powerful warrior female force who challenges patriarchal authority, in particular dominant miss-deeds and acts of misuse of power, especially about male dominance over, or exploitation of, women. Eris discloses and exposes clandestine affairs, or simply what lies hidden behind innocent but naïve assumptions about reality. She opens our eyes to what is covered by lies, often revealing something deceitful, shameful, ugly, or simply what is unacceptable behavior, often driven from greed or inflated pride.
It is important to remember that a lunar eclipse focuses attention on our emotions, intimate relationships, and your home and family. Take an impartial and balanced look at close relationships. This is because you will be in touch with your own needs and intentions, you will clearly see any relationship imbalances causing disharmony.
The Moon conjunct Pluto brings such deep feelings that they can overwhelm you. A personal interaction or event may trigger a memory or emotion buried deeply in your subconscious. You might even become obsessed about your feelings and have trouble focusing on anything else. Dreams, visions, psychic impressions or intuitive insights may have a profound influence on your mood.
Your intuition may be correct but could obscure your rational thought processes and conscious judgment skills. In relationships, you may have to deal with controlling and manipulative behaviors like jealousy, guilt-tripping, threats, intimidation, violence or self-harm. Transcend your own challenging emotions and behaviors through meditation, self-analysis, or other technique to understand your feelings.
Avoid being overly assertive, egotistic, or resistant to change. Challenges are more likely if you stubbornly resist change, or have engaged in some habit that is destructive to yourself or others. Even though you may experience a bruised ego, there is also great potential for positives if you are open to change.
The lunar eclipse on 16 July 2019 will be visible over most of Asia, Australia, Africa, Europe, and most of South America.
