Your Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn Horoscope & Reflection, According To Your Zodiac Sign
A beautiful chapter awaits as we finally reach the finish line of a powerful eclipse cycle. Glimmering through the velvet night, on Sunday, July 5 at exactly 12:44 a.m. EST, the full moon lunar eclipse will be just as liberating as it is cathartic, especially since it’s the last of the Cancer-Capricorn eclipse series. *For more reference on the effects of this celestial event, think back to May 2018, and reflect on the personal and professional experiences you’ve fought for, and have overcome.* Eclipses are powerful lunations that bring life-altering events. Given that this will also conclude your Cancer-Capricorn eclipse story, it’s important to consider the astrological houses in your birth chart governed by these two cardinal signs.
As you know, full moons are symbolic of completion and spiritual fruition, and the potency of this lunar phase is naturally emphasized during an eclipse. There is something pivotal being brought to your conscious awareness this eclipse season and in Saturn-ruled Capricorn, it will more than likely revolve around your professional foundation and self-mastery. Lunar eclipses are not only life-changing, they’re also incredibly revealing. Something else to keep in mind during this time is, eclipse effects can last up to six months, so make sure to pay close attention as your individual story unfolds. You are shifting and ever-evolving and each day that goes by is bringing you closer to your destiny. Change is the only thing that’s constant.
Collectively, it’s important to acknowledge that Saturn-ruled Capricorn is symbolic patriarchal structures, government systems, and authority figures, so the potential effects of this eclipse will strongly influence the structures of the world at large. Something is in the process of being dismantled and restructured in order to build a more righteous and long-lasting future. And though this might be a lot to take in from a personal standpoint, you can't be afraid to let it all fall down, especially if it wasn't built on solid ground. This could revolve around everything from your sense of belonging to your soul’s contribution in the world. You’re stepping into a brand-new era and you don’t need to bring your past along with you. The choice is yours.
Activating 13 degrees of Saturn-ruled Capricorn, this lunar eclipse on July 5 will be a major turning point, especially when it comes to your life's direction. Given that Mercury retrograde will be a key player in the upcoming eclipse (and Mercury is Gemini's ruling planet, which is where the North Node is), themes revolving around the way we process information, individually and collectively, will be highlighted during this time. It's also no coincidence pragmatic Saturn will have re-entered its sign of rulership, Capricorn, and joined forces with Jupiter-Pluto retrograde, just days before for this eclipse. Father Time’s comeback will be especially potent, as it won't be back in Capricorn for the next 27 to 29 years.
Read your lunar eclipse horoscope and reflection according to your zodiac sign below:
Focus on your legacy, Aries. Everything about your home/family/sense of stability and your professional life/sense of authority has experienced an incredible amount of transformation since May 2018, but it’s time to close that chapter. This lunar eclipse will shake up your prestigious tenth house of career, superiors, prominent parental figures, and destiny in the world, and it will shed light on something that needs to be adjusted. Hint: The knowledge you acquired during Saturn’s transit through Aquarius (since March 2020) will help you look at the themes mentioned above from a different lens. Reflection: What part of your professional life needs more discipline and perseverance? What do you want your legacy to be?
Look towards the future with clarity, Taurus. In addition to Uranus revolutionizing your personal aesthetic and disrupting your pleasure-seeking lifestyle, the Cancer-Capricorn eclipse series has expanded your personal horizons and bestowed you with an incredible amount of perspective since May 2018. Now that this powerful chapter is coming to a close, the lunar eclipse will activate your expansive ninth house of wisdom, education, opportunity, and personal philosophy, and this celestial magic will continue to broaden your mind and quench your desire for self-discovery. The universe is speaking your language, and you’re finally understanding. Reflection: Are you being practical about your long-term goals? Do you need to become more educated in a particular industry?
Reflect on your metamorphosis, Gemini. In the midst of your planetary ruler, Mercury, retrograding through your pleasure-seeking second house of values, finances, and sense of security, the final eclipse of the Cancer-Capricorn series will ignite your erotic eighth house of sex, shared resources, and transformation. Whether you’ve been entertaining the idea of participating in a joint venture or learning how to merge with another mind, body, and soul, the next six months will bring you some much-needed clarity. Reflecting on whether or not your intimate partnerships — personal and/or professional — are built upon a mutual understanding is everything this eclipse season. Reflection: Are you getting the same amount of energy you invest in return? Does this union feel secure?
Solidify your partnerships, Cancer. It’s been quite an adventure and this gives you more reason to celebrate another journey around the sun. Remember, the moon rules you, so lunations affect you deeper than the rest of the zodiac. This full moon lunar eclipse is no exception as it will activate your committed seventh house of partnerships, negotiations, and agreements. Hint: Think back to May 2018; how have your personal and professional relationships evolved since? Getting down to business will be the least of your worries, as there will be some tension with aggressive Mars via your ambitious tenth house of career. Having said that, something tells me this eclipse energy will highlight a particular collaboration in your professional life that needs to be readjusted. Reflection: Are you negotiating with honesty and integrity? Are you wholeheartedly committed?
Your wellbeing is a reflection of your day-to-day rituals, Leo. You more than anyone know this, as the Cancer-Capricorn eclipse series has continuously activated your sixth house of health and 12th house of surrender, since May 2018. Currently, with this eclipse story coming to a close — between now and the next six months — you’re being given the opportunity to restructure your routine habits and upgrade your lifestyle. Eclipses are life-altering and incredibly illuminating, and something revolving around your ability to be of service is being brought to your conscious awareness. Reflection: What needs to be reworked with regard to your daily duties? Do you feel mentally, physically, and spiritually productive?
Self-discipline isn’t your only hobby, Virgo. Everything about your self-expression and sense of belonging in the world has experienced an incredible amount of transformation since May 2018, but it’s time to close that chapter. This lunar eclipse will shake up your shiny fifth house of fame, happiness, children, and passion projects, and it will highlight something that needs to be readjusted. Think about all the knowledge you acquired during Saturn’s transit through innovative Aquarius, between March and July 1, 2020. What did you learn about yourself? Your planetary ruler, Mercury, is also retrograding through your 11th house of social networks, and this is an opportunity for you to practice discernment between the work you put in as an individual versus what you’ve accomplished as a team. Reflection: How can you cultivate your individual talents more? Can you integrate this with your current business?
You know what you bring to the table because you worked tirelessly to earn the money to afford it, Libra. You’ve succeeded in solidifying everything from your living space to your family foundation since May 2018, and it’s time to take a step back and reflect on everything you’ve established. Keep in mind, this also includes your emotional stability and family dynamic, perhaps there may have even been ancestral energies you had no choice but to deal with as well. Having said that, the lunar eclipse will activate your domestic fourth house of home, roots, and inner experiences, which will more than likely feel like a final exam with regard to your instinctual needs, and sense of security. I know how much you loathe confrontation, but it will get easier. Reflection: How has your home life evolved these past two years? How can you continue to cultivate your emotional strength?
Your mind is powerful beyond measure, Scorpio. Since May 2018 — amidst Jupiter’s lucky transit through your sign — you’ve slowly but surely found the courage to show up, interact, and learn from your immediate environment. In addition to becoming better acquainted with your local community — social media included — you were also given the opportunity to speak your truth. Whether you decided to share your ancient wisdom via a lifestyle blog or perhaps a freelance writing gig, taking that leap of faith was the best thing you ever did. The full moon lunar eclipse in Capricorn will ignite this area of your birth chart, and this supercharged lunation will pave the way for something even greater. Hint: What did you learn about yourself during Saturn’s prelude through Aquarius, between March and July 1, 2010? With Saturn retrograde back in Capricorn, now is the time to cultivate the knowledge you’ve acquired. Reflection: What other topics/subjects would you like to explore? How can you be more effective with your self-mastery?
You’re building an empire, Sagittarius. Look around and soak in your blessings. You’re lying on the bed you made, but are you satisfied? Despite your innate restlessness and chronic FOMO, the universe wouldn’t stand for you settling right now. Having said that, everything about your value system and sense of self-worth has experienced an incredible amount of transformation since May 2018, but it’s time to solidify this pivotal chapter in your life. The lunar eclipse in Capricorn will ignite your pleasure-seeking second house of security, finances, values, and unique possessions, and it will shed light on something that needs to be adjusted and acknowledged. There are so many wonderful opportunities waiting for you on the other side of the horizon, but there are a few more lessons on Father Time’s to-do list. Reflection: Have you been thinking realistically when it comes to your finances and spending habits? Are your personal and professional needs being met?
You’ve come so far but it’s only the beginning, Capricorn. You’re a child of Saturn and the last thing you want is praise, especially when you don’t think you’ve truly earned it, but it’s time. Full moons are naturally revealing and climatic, and this eclipse is bringing something unshakable to your conscious awareness. The lunar eclipse in your sign marks the final chapter of the Cancer-Capricorn series, and it’s putting a spotlight on your personal and professional achievements. In the midst of this, however, there could be tension between your sense of self versus the way you show up for a significant other. Whether you’ve decided to take a step back from a particular partnership or perhaps move forward and seal the deal, your sense of self will be top of mind. Your mission for the next six months, should you choose to accept it, is to continue solidifying your personal identity with honesty and integrity. Reflection: How has your individuality and selfhood evolved? How can you continue mastering your personal independence?
Honor the divine light that continues to heal you from the inside out, Aquarius. The past couple of years have been nothing short of cathartic for you, thanks to the Cancer-Capricorn eclipse series activating your karmic 12th house of surrender along with your conscious sixth house of health, and acts of service. Themes revolving around your mental and spiritual well being have been incredibly prominent which, in turn, bestowed you with the opportunity to release, shed, and heal. And while this may have certainly taken a toll in your personal life, it also helped you cultivate an unbreakable relationship with spirit. The full moon lunar eclipse is activating this area of your chart — your 12th house of closure, forgiveness, secrets, and all things behind the scenes — bringing something revolving around your personal limitations to your conscious awareness. How much is too much, Aquarius? Having compassion for yourself is just as important, if not more than the empathy you feel for those around you. Reflection: How have you mastered the structure of your life? What strength did you acquire while spending time in your solitude?
There’s no better feeling than being able to lean on your soul tribe, Pisces. Everything about your eclectic friendship groups and sense of belonging in the world, versus your colorful individuality and passions, evolved tremendously in the past two years. The Cancer-Capricorn eclipse series challenged you to solidify your networks and taught you how to nurture your happiness, but your self-confidence also skyrocketed along the way. Keeping that in mind, the upcoming full moon lunar eclipse will reignite your socially conscious 11th house of society, hopes, wishes, and dreams. This will not only shed light on your personal involvement with your extended community but also help you cultivate long-lasting friendships. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, which means your team couldn’t exist without you. Reflection: How can you be an individual and a team player simultaneously? How can you continue solidifying your personal freedom?
