July the 5th’s full moon and rare lunar eclipse are the last of the eclipse season, and a rare spiritual and mystical opportunity for us to ground ourselves in the face of the continuing uncertainty. Full moons signify completion and new beginnings whereas lunar eclipses are all about change and growth. This full moon is taking place in Capricorn, the star sign of structure, ambition, and long term goals. This can only mean that we can reclaim our ability to plan, set goals, and start over again. Motivations are high and any turbulences surrounding your work/home life balance should sort themselves out. However, since the sign opposite from Capricorn is Cancer, it is very normal for our emotions to feel out of balance. But this is a very important time in which change and growth come together to help us let go of what’s not serving us and to help us take steps towards our own healing and nurturing. Below is a little glimpse into how each star sign can harness the energy of this major astrological event with much-needed self-care rituals.
Aries are finally coming to terms with their own worth and this will eventually lead to growth in their careers and public status. Since you’re a fire sign you will need to keep your passion high by burning red candles and cinnamon incense during the eclipse.
You’re experiencing major shifts in your beliefs and identity and this can be quite unsettling for the routine-loving bull. Draw yourself a warm bath with some candles to ease off things. Meditate with singing bowls to empower your heart chakra by giving it some loving energy.
This lunar eclipse signifies a new window of opportunity for Gemini’s; your side business may finally take off. Since you’re easily over-stimulated you need to find ways to ground yourself. Take a break from social media and take a walk in nature, or you can even observe the eclipse in person as it will bring you some inner peace.
You’ve been focusing on your identity and your relationships with others over the past two years and this lunar eclipse in your 7th house marks the final chapter in that quest. New opportunities will present themselves to you and that will be more in alignment with your needs. Since the moon cycle affects Cancers the most, you need to find ways to pamper and honor yourself. Prepare a bath with rose petals and rose essential oil to invoke the energy of loving and celebrating yourself.
Leo’s have been revising and reviewing their daily routines and their work life. They’ve been reflecting on whether their career paths are in alignment with their wellbeing. Shifts in career are expected during this time and all changes should be embraced for their higher good. Take time out to write down your career goals and your dream career as affirmations that should only be written in the present tense.
Virgos have been working on healing their inner child. You’ve always been the practical one but this is gradually changing, and you need to embrace your inner child to figure out your new spiritual path. Take time to embrace your creativity by playing games with you children, by dancing, singing, painting or doing anything creative.
Your family life is definitely changing due to certain events or circumstances. To counteract that shift you will need to instil more security and structure in your home, add some colors and beauty to your surroundings, and practice guided meditations with positive mantras to welcome these new changes.
Your ways of communication and how you express yourself are the areas under reflection during this lunar eclipse. Continue to speak your truth from a place of intuition, strengthen your throat energy which is responsible for communication by doing breathing exercises and mantra chanting.
Your finances have been on your mind and your self-worth was connected to that. Remove any limiting beliefs and go after what you believe you deserve. Journal about your achievements and accomplishments to satisfy your ego. Meditate, do some stretching and breathing or attend a hatha yoga session.
Since the lunar eclipse is happening in your sign this is a time of major transformations for you. This is a time to review who you are and how others see you and to search for opportunities that are in alignment with who you are as a person and your true values. Take time off work if you need. Seek guidance from a mentor, an astrologer or even a Reiki master.
If you’re experiencing shifts in spirituality don’t be alarmed. This is the time for your to reconcile your inner spiritual world with your reality. Tap into your subconscious mind by doing a vision board to help put structure to your dreams and aspirations.
You may have experienced some changes in your direct community of friends or network. New contacts can open up new windows of opportunity for you during the eclipse. You may also experience a shifting in your goals and desires. Since you’re from the ocean it can be the perfect place for you. Bring the ocean in by running a soothing salt bath, find some sea shells and place them around, bring a clear quartz stone to strengthen the water energy. You need to let go and surrender to the universe.
