The Moon is Full in Capricorn on July 5, 2020, at 12:44 AM EDT. This is an eclipse.
A Full Moon occurs when the Sun in Cancer forms an opposition to the Moon in Capricorn. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time – a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.
This eclipse is the final in a set of eclipses occurring along the Cancer-Capricorn sign axis–a set that began in July 2018. It can be considered the final cosmic nudge toward resolving issues related to the Cancer-Capricorn areas of our charts.
Cancer encourages us to value our home base and our roots, while Capricorn persuades us to consider our sense of duty and responsibility along public or professional lines. While Cancer may be content to be dependent, Capricorn urges us to be grown-up and responsible. Cancer represents the origin, and Capricorn represents the goal. The Full Moon illuminates these conflicts.
Neglecting either end of the axis will surely backfire on us. Ideally, a balance should be found between the two energies, and this is what this Full Moon invites us to do. This lunation is about balancing our commitment to our career (or responsibilities to the outside world) and families (or personal life).
Something has been building inside of us, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out. Over the coming weeks and months, we will discover what this means for us. For now, we can’t sit on our feelings. We need to express them.
A crisis of sorts (which can be a crisis of consciousness) or sudden awareness of a lack in our lives provides us with a golden opportunity to explore our emotional needs within the context of the house polarity where the eclipse occurs in our natal charts. Relationships may be challenged, broken, or strengthened dramatically at this time. Our discovery is emotionally charged and dramatic. Epiphanies are likely at this time as we become acutely aware of our lack. This understanding can propel us into affirmative action.
Full Moons are always good for magnifying pre-existing problems so that we can see where to bring back balance. Our larger work should be on reaching a good balance between focus on personal and private lives and our professional or public duties, responsibilities, and goals. Enlightenment now provides us with a golden opportunity to explore our emotional needs, which can ultimately lead to positive actions and decisions. There can be a heightened awareness of flaws in our current systems and structures. There can also be an urgent or sudden need/desire to express ourselves, and a strong compulsion to come to a resolution of a problem.
This lunation happens very close to the retrograde-retrograde Jupiter-Pluto conjunction, making revelations rather dramatic. Its harmony with Uranus helps us release and let go.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 13 degrees and 38 minutes of Capricorn.
