A heads up! This astrology means business and permanent, irrevocable endings. On Monday the energy turns heavy as the Sun opposes Pluto just before the Lunar Eclipse on July 16 2019 at 24° Capricorn.The eclipse seismic shock window is active between July 13-19 but the karmic eclipse ripples will continue to reverberate through your life wherever you have 22-26 degrees Capricorn until the next eclipse in December in 6 months. The last eclipse on this degree was July 16 2000 – think back to what ended around that time.
The Moon in Capricorn is conjunct Pluto square Disruptor Eris and opposite Venus/Node of Fate/Sun in Cancer. It pre-figures the epochal January 12 2020 exact Saturn/Pluto conjunction and lunar eclipse, intensifying this powerful cycle of Collapse and Contraction – with a capital C. Pluto, Saturn, Mercury, Neptune, Jupiter and Chiron are all retrograde, excavating old issues for resolution. This is a potentially uncomfortable wild card eclipse delivering unwelcome reality checks by changing circumstances and relationships around you so you have no option but to face issues head on. It suggests a missed step somewhere along the line
With the Great Eliminator being occulted, you enter the burning fields. This is the time when anything false is likely to get forcefully deconstructed. Pluto resonates with all things absolute, either absolute light or absolute darkness. It can feel as if a part of you is being extinguished.
Pluto Keywords: evolutionary burn; alchemy; power; Truth; soma and psyche; transformation; loss, elimination; death; impermanence; resurrection; regeneration; re-birth
Pluto’s symbol is the circle of Spirit being cooked in the crucible or transformed in the Grail so the more you collaborate with the process, the faster you move through it.
Let go of old ideas about who you are as you witness the end of many of your previous creations, roles, labels, careers, alliances and belief systems. You are not failing, you are not dying – you are re-orienting.
Aries Weekly Forecast: July 14-21, 2019
At Tuesday’s eclipse, your karmic chickens are coming home to roost in your career or public image. Ask yourself: Am I aligning my personal mission with who I am in the world? Do I act out of authenticity or expediency? Is what I do congruent with my core values and if not, why not? Is my ladder up against the wrong tree and what can I do about it? Am I doing this work, offering this service for the money or do I want to leave behind a legacy? Expect sudden re-arrangement of circumstances outside your control to open up new possibilities by removing you from situations that you’ve long outgrown.

At Tuesday’s eclipse, your karmic chickens are coming home to roost in your angle of communication and connection.

Expect to encounter people who challenge all your assumptions about how the world works.

Leo Weekly Forecast: July 14-21, 2019
At Tuesday’s eclipse, your karmic chickens are coming home to roost in how you care for your body/mind/spirit.

An important part of this healing is becoming a human being instead of a human doing. Ask yourself: where in my life am I acting against my own interests?

Are you putting your most authentic self out there and standing behind your ideas and creations? Eclipses are cosmic wild cards that bring opportunities where there were none before-what are yours and will you seize them with both hands? This is all about seeing the world as an enormous web of connection and plugging yourself and your gifts into it.
