Eclipses give us a special window into what’s ahead for the next six months. Today’s partial lunar eclipse happens during the Capricorn full moon, and is especially connected with our careers, our karmic burden, fathers and fatherhood and how we build ourselves to be the best version of ourselves. The moon itself is ruled by nurturing, motherly Cancer, the sign of house and home. To get the full picture of your eclipse vibes, I suggest reading your sun sign, your moon sign and your North and South Nodes if you know them.
ARIES– 9 of Pentacles– It’s time to stand on your own two feet. You don’t need a partner for a venture to be successful. As long as you stay true to yourself, your values and know your value, you’ll prosper for the next six months. You may have to steady some of your impulses to fully mature some of the opportunities available to you.
TAURUS– Knight of Pentacles Reversed –Time is money and money is time. Some rewards you’ve been seeking in career are taking a longer time getting to you. Keep all your projects going at a steady pace and don’t give up. Endurance is your watchword for the next six months.
GEMINI–The Tower — A sudden insight or disruptive event may rock your world and test your foundations. Let what needs to fall, fall. It’s not on you to stabilize everything and everyone, especially if the foundations are shaky. You have an awesome opportunity in the next six months to build bigger, better and bolder if you have the stomach to succeed.
CANCER– King of Wands Reversed–Be careful of being all talk and no action. It’s fine to plan, but don’t commit to a person or project without a giving wholehearted yes. When you find yourself saying, “I don’t know what to do,” ask yourself “What am I really afraid of?” Fortune favors the bold. Be careful of being a spitfire. Unexpressed anger easily festers into resentment, so get an emotional hygiene regimen to get yourself through the challenges of the next six months.
LEO– 2 of Cups Reversed– You’re not seeing eye to eye with a business or romantic partner, especially on the day-to-day, routine matters. The fundamentals of the relationship, the shared values are still intact. Don’t make mountains out of molehills and celebrate the small victories. Celebrating the small things girds you both against conflict on larger issues for the next six months.
VIRGO– 10 of Wands Reversed — You’re about to drop a big burden that you’ve been carrying for too long. Congratulations. Be choosy, though, about what you choose to shoulder next. Discernment is key for the coming six months. Let others carry their own weight. Helping is fine. Enabling is not. Keep walking towards your “true home”, with a much lighter load.
LIBRA — The Wheel of Fortune — Lucky you! You’re about to get a fresh start and some awesome opportunities coming your way. Stay true to your values and principles. Doing so will help you create more opportunities for yourself. It’s also time to look at the cycles of your life, of your relationships and gently detach from that which is not serving you anymore. If things get too emotional, center yourself. A good centering meditation will serve you well in the coming months.
SCORPIO — The Page of Swords Reversed — Think hard before you speak, Scorpio. Your words have extra power in the coming months and you’d do well to take a spoonful of sugar each day. Also, listen to the voice of your inner child. If you find that you’re self-sabotaging, especially in what you say, or don’t say, it might be time do some inner child work in the coming months. What secrets are you keeping from yourself?
SAGITTARIUS — 6 of Wands Reversed — You have the success you’ve been aiming for, but not the fame. Ask yourself why the fame is so important to you. You might find the answer surprises you. Also, be careful of those whose praise comes too readily. It may feel good to get a lot of compliments, but ulterior motives may be at play with some of those around you. In the next six months, you’re going to redefine what success is to you and then seize it.
CAPRICORN — 10 of Cups — Your wish is granted, Capricorn. Be sure to share your joy in order to increase it. The next six months, right up until the sun re-enters your sign, portend immense emotional and personal fulfillment. All is well. Your inner skeptic may think that all this is too good to be true. Don’t listen to that inner skeptic. You’ve been working your plan for a long time and you deserve all the good your receive.
AQUARIUS — 3 of Swords Reversed — Be gentle with yourself, Aquarius. You’re still healing from a loss. Listen to your heart and take extra care not to distract yourself from its yearnings. It’s all too easy to ruminate to try to distance yourself from pain, but it’s time to really get to the heart of a matter. In six months, you’ll feel more available to love and be creative.
PISCES –4 of Cups — Pisces, you’ve got a lot of offers coming toward you, but that small voice of your intuition keeps saying, “no”. It’s time to get to the heart of what you can say a deep, resounding “yes” to. Apathy is holding you back. It’s time to get to the core of what’s emotionally burdening you. How is being stuck or immobile protecting you? This is the question at hand until December. It’s time to get unstuck and passionate again.
