On July 27 we’ve got a total lunar eclipse – one of the more powerful astrological events for bringing up deep feels. Here’s it means for your sign.
On Friday, July 27, we’ve got a total lunar eclipse, which is one of the more powerful astrological events when it comes to bringing up deep feels. When the moon is eclipsed by shadows, we too are confronted with our own shadow. We’re prompted to explore our inner darkness – the parts of us we don’t often share with the world, or, parts we don’t even know so well. What we may realize or feel around this time can be a potent aid for our personal transformation.
Where solar eclipses tend to spark new beginnings, lunar eclipses tend to bring things to a close. Supported by the energy of Aquarius, the intellectual humanitarian of the zodiac, this full moon could bring about some powerful insights around who we are in the world and how we serve. It’s an excellent time to check in with ourselves and ask if we’re showing up like we want to be! So: Stay open come the end of the month, welcome the feels, and welcome a new direction if it calls to you. Change is cleansing! Here’s what this total lunar eclipse means for your sign:
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
With your ruler, Mars, in retrograde all summer, you may have felt lower-energy than usual, Aries. If that’s spurred some frustration, it’s time to channel it. With the full moon in your eleventh house of friends and technology, you may feel the need to cut some of the fat in your social circle or full-on excommunicate a frenemy once and for all. Start with a good old fashioned follower clean-out of your social channels (if you don’t 100% want to see what they’re up to on the weekend, ex ‘em). Who’s a key player on team Aries? The peeps who cheer you on no matter what? Take stock.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
With the eclipse lighting your tenth house of status and achievement, your career will be top of mind around now. With passionate mars in retrograde working so closely with this eclipse, any pent-up anger or burn-out you may have been trying to suppress could come out now, Taurus. Use this full moon to revisit the career goals you’re working toward. Is what you’re doing on a day to day basis getting you closer to your core desired end goal? If not, call a time-out and revisit your schedule. The boundaries you set in place now can have a big impact.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You’re never boring for a reason, Gemini – you’re driven by curiosity. So what’s been fuelling your dreams and fantasies this summer? This eclipse invites you to feel into those fires that are burning away in your realm of travel and growth. Is it time for your next big adventure? What might that look like? Make a plan to do whatever you can to get in at least one sumptuous vacation in before the summer’s end – even if it’s a voyage to a nearby outdoor concert or street festival. Remember: Opportunities come to your through your connections, so put yourself in a situation to move and shake among people you’re interested in.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
As if you didn’t get a break from the deep feels all season, Cancer! This eclipse will strike your realm of deep, intimate connections, bringing your loved ones to the forefront. While people generally count on you to be a safe haven from the storm, now it’s your turn to be held. Give your friends the chance to show up for you, and feel how much your gratitude can grow if you just give it the chance to. Partnered Cancers may decide to kick a relationship up to a new level of commitment, or alternately, get honest about boundaries. It’s all about to come pouring out from the depths now. Don’t hold back – just use your super-powered intuition to guide your communication.
Leo (July 23 – Aug 22)
A few days the sun moves into your sign and gets Leo season started (your time to shine!) the full moon lands in your 7th house of partnerships. How’s this for an invitation to plan and throw yourself an extravagant birthday party? Or, plan a treat yo’self day with some close pals. After you love up on your best supporting cast, ask yourself: Does anyone need to be eclipsed out of your regal orbit now? Now’s the time to make it known Leo. But don’t be too quick to burn bridges and leave a flaming paper trail in your wake – mercury goes retrograde on July 25th, so be impeccable with your word and your intentions.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept. 22)
This eclipse will turn your attention to your health and lifestyle, Virgo. Is it time to actually quit that super stressful job? Or, leave that super toxic friendship in the dust? Don’t call it quits before you have a solid plan in place, Virgo. Your ruler, Mercury, is going retrograde on July 26th. While it’s not the best time to sign contracts or cook up new agreements, it is prime time to strategize your exit route out of whatever is making you feel less than strong – whether it’s a job, or relationship that’s sapping your energy. Do you, Virgo.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Book your mani pedi now, Libra – with this eclipse touching down in your fifth house of romance and creative expression, you’ll be in the mood to look like the leading lady you want to be in the life of your dreams. How can you make your self an extension of your vision board and start to move through the world with the grace and confidence of your highest self? Start to bring your most grand, beautiful dreams into your present reality one small action, purchase, or message, at a time. Also, FYI females – the fifth house also rules fertility, so, wrap it up ok?
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 22)
With the moon in your fourth house of home and foundations for this eclipse, your mind will be on the structures that hold your life in place and keep your feeling grounded (think: home, family, self-care rituals). Play parent to yourself during this whole week, and really have your best interest at heart. How can you give your home life an upgrade? With so many planets in retrograde right now, it’s a great time to revisit the ways your past is still coming up. What old shit do you have lying around that you could do away with, now? Give your place a deep clean, or, purge your inbox. Think of it as a total identity upgrade, Scorpio.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
What creative projects have been in the works on your end, Sag? This eclipse touches down in your third house of expression and ideas, so big plans that may have been brewing over the past few weeks or months could reach the surface now. Or, if you’ve been waiting for a hit of inspiration, you could find it now. Let books fall off the shelf, go to a networking event, or take a look back through your messages and find that person who wanted to get coffee and talk shop. It’s a time to put your ideas out there, if ever there was one. Put your fearlessness to the test.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan 19)
Thinking you’re due for a raise or a promotion? Think about how you can strategize your way into those talks, Cap. Put your take-no-prisoners ambition to focused use around this eclipse and you’ll see a major return. This eclipse lights up your second house of self-worth and money, which makes it a powerful time to remember that, no matter what you do for a living, you work for you. Not anyone else. Have you actually been asking for what you want? And, check your energy – have you been asking like you know you’re worth it?
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Aquarius, you’re the poster-child for repping your personal uniqueness, but right around now is your chance to practice what you preach. The focus for you around this eclipse is on your personal identity. How can you be you, loud and proud and most authentic way? What aspects of your identity need an update? What in your life is butting up against your individuality – and what is bolstering it? It’ll all become clear around the 27th. If you’re an influencer or blogger or podcaster – how authentic are the messages you’re putting out there? People resonate with vulnerability, so share a little bit more of your personal story if you feel called to.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
I’d say get ready to dive into the depths, Pisces – but you always are, right? This eclipse is highlighting your twelfth house of the subconscious mind, health, and healing, where you happen to be quite comfy. But, this eclipse could take you even deeper than you’re used to going. This is a time to get really self-aware about your self-talk. What dialogues do you have with yourself on a regularly basis that are honestly supportive – and which are not? Do you show yourself the compassion you show your friends? Or… perfect strangers? Check how supportive your habitual thoughts are, and you could start to make a big impact in changing your whole life.
