The Capricorn Full Moon Lunar Eclipse arrives on Tuesday at 5:38pm Eastern Time, closing the eclipse vortex. This occurs in the midst of Mercury retrograde, as well as one of the year’s heaviest retrograde seasons—with Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Chiron also moving backwards. The planets are pushing us to turn inward and let go of old patterns, limitations, and conditioning, which have been holding us back from our soul’s highest potentials. Previous issues and relationships may return now so we can shed deeper layers of stuckness while opening to higher frequencies of love and embodiment.

This is not the time to cling to the past or stay stuck in painful, nostalgic longing. We can embrace all that is arising now and meet it with open pastures, allowing the expression of what we’re feeling to purify our hearts. We’re purging the past so we can make room for a new paradigm to emerge, both within ourselves and the collective.
Meanwhile, Pluto, planet of transformation, death, and rebirth, is conjunct the Moon. This means that this eclipse is extra deep and potent, working to destroy our current sense of identity in order to create a new one. We may feel triggered or uncomfortable, but the planets are stretching us beyond our limits so we can move more quickly through our personal karma, as well as the karma of our families, ancestors, and the whole planet. This is big collective work as we upend patriarchy and begin to inhabit a kinder age, marked by inclusion, egalitarianism, vulnerability, and intimacy—rather than oppression, narcissism, or empty achievement.
Whatever dies now is meant to be reborn. Whatever pain or intense emotions arise are for the purpose of purification.
