Here comes the month’s second eclipse – a lunar eclipse in Capricorn. This one may be rough. Not only is Mercury retrograde, but Pluto is conjunct this eclipse, which could result in power struggles. Saturn is widely conjunct the eclipse degree, so the power struggles could be with someone who has authority over you – a boss, employer, parent.
Uranus, the planet that represents sudden, unexpected events that can be jarring, forms a challenging angle to Mercury and to Mars. There could be problems with a contractual agreement, communication project, or with travel plans. You won’t be thinking as clearly as you usually do. Tempers may be short, particularly on the road, so be vigilant for careless drivers and stick to the speed limit.
Full moons often live up to their lore – ask anyone who has worked in an emergency room about the crazies who appear on full moon days – and since the moon will be eclipsed, that craziness factor may be multiplied. Best to lay low on July 16, mind your own business, and avoid confrontations. Remember: this too shall pass.
