Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn


This Capricorn Partial Lunar Eclipse is at 11:55 am PDT on July 16th and the Full Blessing Moon is exact later at 2:38 pm PDT.

The Moon will be covered by about 65% of the Earth's umbral shadow at maximum eclipse. This is the last eclipse of 2019 and is visible from Africa, Australia, South America, most of Asia Europe, and the very southern and eastern parts of North America.

With the eclipsing Moon in Capricorn, the structures, constructs, patterns and traditions of your life that have been built on a foundation of distortion, fear or falsity are crumbling. This may feel like the carpet is being pulled out from underneath you. This may feel intense. And, it is. This great eclipse of the moon, caused by the Earth’s shadow, is here to catalyze an illumination and then release, of all the ways you have governed your life from a place of fear to initiate a new foundation rooted in trust, wisdom and love.

Let the full moon’s luminosity penetrate into your being to deconstruct what achievement, leadership, power and mastery have meant to you, so you redefine this for yourself. It is time to shed the chains of comparison, status, competition, power-over / powerlessness by illuminating the emotions hiding in the dark. These shadows are ready to be acknowledged, simply by feeling them. During this Moon, allow any sadness, grief, anger, fear and rage to have their holy moment. Any distorted beliefs that have been leading your life are being revealed and dissolved. Honour and thank them for how they have served you and with power of your sovereign choice, let them go.

On the other side of this shadow is liberation! Through this deep excavation of your being, you are creating space for a potent rebirth of love and true mastery to take up residence in your life, for the benefit All. You will begin, and we will begin, to rebuild structures, maps, traditions and patterns in our lives based in safety, honour, respect and love.

This eclipse will guide you into the direction of living your dreams and grounding your soul gifts! Bathe yourself in the light of truth and unconditional love. Feel deeply. Follow your body’s innate intuition. You are supported and blessed.

And so it is.

Added Insight…

As this is the Blessing Moon, take time to amplify your gratitude and give thanks for all the blessings and abundance already present. And with the eclipse, it is also important to acknowledge your emotional and earthly needs/desires have not been met, and welcome insight to initiate new ways and structures of getting these met with creativity, support, and grace.

Also, in Vedic and Hindu Tradition, it is Guru Purnima! The special Full Moon is a time of honouring those that have been, and are, our teachers. This Full Moon is dedicated to those who have illuminated us in some way, who have taught us and guided us, and who have shown us more of who we truly are and why we are here.

Ritual Suggestions

  • Eclipsing Earth Connection: Stand or walk on the earth with bare feet. Imagine roots growing down from your feet and/or your womb space to the womb of Mother Gaia. Feel this as an anchoring pillar of light connecting you to the Earth and welcome in the magick of the Moon descending down from above moving through you, as you continue to send the energy deep into the earth to ground you, release stagnant or pent up emotional energy and have you feeling supported and nourished for rebirth.

  • Guru Purnima Gratitude Blessing: Throughout the day and night, as inspired, say out loud what you are grateful for about the people in your life you consider are your teachers, those you have learned from, who have inspired you and supported your empowerment. If it's a person, reach out and tell them in a message, phone call or prayer. If they are animals, angels or ascended masters or guides in the unseen realms, speak or sing your gratitude out loud or in writing.

  • Take Stock & Take Action: In your journal, write down 1-3 emotional needs and desires that are not being met. Then list why this is so. Make sure you turn the answer inward and don't point the finger to the outside or at someone else. This is powerful. Take your time with this one. There may be massive insight and healing in this alone. Then for each need/desire, write down one way you can activate these to come to fruition. Make a commitment to apply at least one of these in the next 72 hours. And the others within this lunar cycle.

  • Creative Activation: Take a piece of paper and list 5-10 desires you have. Place this sacred paper under the moonlight (either outside or by a window). Create an altar with this by adding symbols (of things you already have/cuttings from a magazine, etc) that represent these desires. Get creative. Then burn sage or incense around you to purify yourself and symbolically remove any ways of being that prevent you from experiencing these desires (insight from first ritual may come into play here). Sing or chant any mantras or songs that you feel connected to, to bring these soul desires to life!

  • Remember: Put out your gemstones and jewels in a window or in water for cleansing, renewal, and activation. Place an apple and glass of water in the moonlight and have it for a 'Moon Wisdom' breakfast the next morning.


Full Moon rituals can be done the day before, of, and day after the actual full moon. This is the 3 day potency period. Blessings to you in this wondrous and magical time.

Wild Moon Love, Achintya
