Weekly General Horoscopes (Updates on Monday) - 15 July 2019
Any week that hosts a lunar eclipse and especially when that week begins with the Sun and Pluto in opposition, is going to have some intensity and pressure. Unlike a solar eclipse in your home and family sector two weeks ago, which saw the Sun and Moon align to create an eclipsing New Moon, this week's lunar eclipse has the Sun and Moon in opposition. This time the Moon is in your career sector and we have a now familiar clash between your home and professional lives playing out. It is this clash that the Sun and Pluto are also addressing at the start of the week. Yet while the week will end with Venus and Pluto in opposition, with those same work/life balance themes playing out, by then everything will have changed. The Moon's return to your career sector on Monday will set the wheels in motion for a lunar eclipse less than 48 hours later, finally bringing things to a head. This will take the heat out of things, just as a mix of playful and adventurous forces is destroying your taste for a life that is all work and no play.
For the most part, you are not being directly impacted by the challenges that a lunar eclipse can create and in fact, you are a winner in this week's eclipse lottery. Falling in an adventurous part of your chart, this can be exciting. The Moon returns on Monday and will immediately start connecting with the planets already in play here. This is a super charged version of the Full Moon that falls at around this time every year and with Pluto, the planet of change and revolution here, this can inspire a revolt when it comes to staying in a rut. In the meantime, there will be an exciting twist to Mercury's retrograde phase this week. Having turned retrograde in your home and family sector last week, this has created the potential for mixed messages and misunderstandings. However, this is also an opportunity for a do over and a chance to give the past and unsaid words a voice. With Mercury retrograding back into your communication sector on Friday, both the advantages and disadvantages will shift to your communications in general.
There are so many layers to this week's cosmic activity that there is a need to keep your mind and your options open from the get go. The lead up to a lunar eclipse in your financial sector begins on Monday and there is also tension between income and financial forces from the get go. Yet despite what any financial tension is telling you, this has exciting implications on both the income and financial fronts. By Thursday you will not only be on the other side of the lunar eclipse, but the benefits will start to reveal themselves. As if waiting until after the eclipse moves through, it is only then that forces on the income and professional fronts start coming together, ready to turn this into motivation. You also have Mercury, your ruling planet retrograding back into your income sector on Friday, over three weeks after leaving. Meanwhile, there is also something exciting developing across the communication, friendship and relationship building fronts.
There might be a need to put your safety belt on as you move into the new week, but just like a safety belt in a car, you hopefully won't need it. This is 'just in case', with the lunar eclipse putting pressure on both the Sun and Venus, in their last full week in Cancer. Yet if this does create pressure, strong emotional responses and either personal, relationship tension or both, this is more a case of new growth meeting old resistance and needing to push through barriers, real or imagined. In the meantime, over three weeks after leaving Cancer, Mercury's return on Friday will have multiple positive implications. As the planet of communication and in retrograde motion, Mercury returns after the lunar eclipse in order to give you, your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. At the same time, by retrograding back out of your income sector this sets Mars free to move things forward on the income front.
While this week's lunar eclipse doesn't fall until over the course of Tuesday and Wednesday, it will be felt even before the Moon returns to your work sector on Monday. The lunar eclipse less than 48 hours later will see the Sun and Moon clash to create this eclipsing Full Moon, but there has already been conflict building for weeks now. The week even begins with the Sun in opposition with Pluto in your busy work sector. In the last full week of your old solar year and in his last full week in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, the Sun is pushing back. Yet it is that pushing back that turns this lunar eclipse into a major catalyst for change on the job front. As a stepping stone to major developments in December, this has the power to shunt things onto the right course ahead of time. In the meantime, it will be easy to ward off or minimise any work tension and job pressure, simply by knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off.
While all lunar eclipses have a strong emotional component and because this is an eclipsing Full Moon this can always push some buttons, you are getting off fairly lightly with this week's one. The biggest problem you might have is juggling too many balls of feeling the pressure of having to be in too many places at the same time. This is not coming from the lunar eclipse itself and more from any frustration if you can't fully embrace its fun, playful, romantic and creative influence. For by the time the Moon returns to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on Monday, the Sun and Venus are already making this a week that is all about personal and professional networking. Yet it is only in the first three days of the week that these forces will clash and you will find it much easier to manage and balance your time in the second half of the week.
While this week's lunar eclipse is the unavoidable elephant in the room, this is not the only dynamic in play. There is an easy way to minimise the impact from this lunar eclipse or even make it a non event, simply by taking work/life balance seriously from the get go. As the Sun and Venus spend their last full week in your career sector, take the eclipse out of the picture and you have a stunning week. By Thursday Venus will be at a friendly aspect to Neptune in your work sector, with the Moon returning there just a day after Mercury retrogrades back into your work sector on Friday. This is an exciting week across the income, work and career fronts. However, even before the Moon returns to your home and family sector on Monday ahead of the lunar eclipse less than 48 hours later, there is already competition between your home and professional lives. Choose to see work/life balance as an advantage and not a challenge.
There are so many alternate developments in play this week that some boundaries might have to be set, especially when it comes to a balance between work and play. As the Sun and Venus spend their last full week in an adventurous part of your chart, they will team up with dreamy Neptune, in retrograde motion in a playful part of your chart in the second half of the week. With Mercury retrograding back into an adventurous part of your chart on Friday, there is not only a mix of playful and adventurous forces in play, but the doors are open to the past and second chances on both fronts. This is something that is also happening across the income, work and career fronts, where there are equally exciting developments in play. You begin the week with planets in retrograde motion in your income, work and career sectors, but by the weekend the professional pace is set to pick up dramatically. Throw a lunar eclipse into the mix and the most important word this week is 'balance'.
While the Moon will leave Sagittarius on Monday, this is more a case of a visit that began over the weekend grazing the early hours of this week. Yet while the Moon will spend barely any time in Sagittarius this week, this will have an impact over the whole week, mainly because of a boost in confidence and excitement this has created. For the first time in over four months, the Moon moved through without encountering any push back and instead, encountered a groundswell of support from forces across the playful and adventurous fronts. This has been the Moon's most exciting visit to Sagittarius this year and as well as a new sense of confidence, there is a sense that the tide is turning. The Moon also leaves you with your intuition, instincts and imagination fuelled, making it easier to navigate your way through this week's lunar eclipse and all the other forces in play. Life should be starting to feel richer and more abundant.
As this week's lunar eclipse falls in Capricorn there is no escaping the impact this might have. Yet from the get go and from as soon as the Moon returns to Capricorn on Monday, there is a need to be aware that there are two realities playing out. The first reality is what you will see at the time, which is the Moon moving into opposition with the Sun less than 48 hours after returning, to create an eclipsing Full Moon. This might push buttons and with the Sun in his last full week in your relationship sector, create some personal and/or relationship tension. Yet while this might be the immediate implication, behind this something far more significant is going on. In the short term, as your personal and relationship needs clash this is another and more obvious chance to get to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. Under it all, what is really going on is a chance to push through old barriers, clearing a path for the major new personal beginnings, growth and opportunities ahead.
The key to not just surviving this week's lunar eclipse but benefiting from it is to follow the Moon's lead. During the solar eclipse in your work sector two weeks ago the Sun and Moon aligned to create an eclipsing New Moon but this time they are in opposition. In terms of eclipse energy, the Sun has had his turn and now it is the Moon's turn and this literally takes things in the opposite direction. The Moon will return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on Monday, nearly 48 hours before clashing with the Sun in order to create the eclipsing Full Moon. The Moon wants you to slow down and find time to hear yourself think, while the Sun wants to maintain a busy pace. Key to eliminating any tension this might create is to remember that the Sun had his turn and now it is the Moon's turn. Once you get to Thursday and the Moon is in Aquarius, everything will look different. You will even benefit from any time spent in the slow lane.
There are some interesting developments this week, with planets turning direct and retrograde and then a lunar eclipse thrown in for good measure. This makes it important to take this week one step at a time, aware that the conditions will shift. A lot of those shifts centre around activity across the income, work and career fronts. You begin the week with both planets on the career front in retrograde motion, but end the week with one in direct motion. At the same time, you begin the week with Mercury in retrograde motion on the job front, only to find that work and job matters will shoot forward once he retrogrades back out on Friday. Even on the income front, you have another planet turning retrograde this week. Fortunately, all these planets are closely aligned, with the professional and money gods working together to open new doors while holding the doors open to untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts. Yet you also have the Sun and Venus making sure that life doesn't become all work and no play.
