LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN On July 4-5, we will be ending a two-year cycle with the full moon penumbral lunar eclipse at 13 degrees in Capricorn. This is the final eclipse on the Capricorn-Cancer axis, with the first having been in mid-July of 2018. This is the culmination of a massive cycle centred around family and security, as well as the feminine and masculine. Capricorn is the sign of responsibility, and this Full Moon reveals where we’ve fallen into avoidance or procrastination and where we need to step up and take charge. Ultimately, the Capricorn Full Moon calls for emotional responsibility, the ability to respond appropriately when strong feelings get triggered. Stepping away from the drama and pulling our attention inward for solitude and reflection could be the best strategy.
Lunar eclipses magnify the effects of a full moon, bringing about major endings. Because of the axis this eclipse falls on, you may feel some extra stress and discomfort as your home environment and your sense of security (especially around career) gets a little shake-up. Take a look at what house 13 degrees Capricorn falls into in your natal chart, as that area is what this eclipse will activate. How has that area of your life changed over the past two years? Is there anything that is still unfinished?
You might be feeling extra emotional and sensitive, but try not to resist the changes that come with this eclipse, as they are here to help you release and purge any people or situations that are no longer serving you.On a broader, global scale, it corresponds with the traditions and foundations of our world, more specifically structures of families and governments. The eclipse will bring a shift in perspective, allowing us to see how they have transformed and what outdated beliefs needs to change in order to align with the reality we envision moving forward.
Remember that endings always herald new beginnings, so allow the eclipse to swiftly tie up loose ends for you as this cycle comes to its completion. Set your intentions for what you would like to release, and for what you would like this new chapter to bring.
In the United States, the eclipse will begin on July 4 at 11:07 PM EDT as the moon starts to slide into the Earth's outer orbit, and end on July 5 at 1:52 AM EDT. The Penumbral will reach its peak on July 5 at 12:29 AM EDT.

Tarot Theme for Week- Five of Swords- Conflict
You may have just suffered a defeat, or came out of a conflict feeling like you have won. However, you should be very mindful of what is right and wrong in this scenario. The Five of Swords implies a conflict which can lead to a karmic defeat. No matter of you win or loose, you still lose something because the conflict is internal. When battles are fought in cunning or betrayel, no one wins.
When the battle is within, you can't betray yourself. You can try, your ego will have you thinking of yourself as a victor, but it is only leading you to bypass the work. All the planetary activity we have going on is pointing our exactly where we need to heal. Use the triggers to do the inner work, and do not gaslight yourself.
