The summer sky is going to be lightened up on the 16th of July, in the sign of Capricorn. This will be the greatest Full Moon happening in this year, as we will be experiencing the Lunar Eclipse together with some other planetary events and surprises.
This Full Moon represents what a lot of natives call the “Thunder Moon,” as July is the period of rains, downpours, and thunderstorms. We should all work with the energy of the powerful Lunar Eclipse.
The retrograde of the planet Mercury
If we accidentally email a wrong individual, our luggage will get lost, and every single thing will seem to be going wrong. We will think that Mercury is in retrograde, and we will be right. From the 7th of July until the 31st of July, the planet Mercury is in retrograde.
Retrogrades can be hard times, but when the Mercury retrograde kicked off on the 7th of July, it moved through two different signs: Cancer and Leo. During the retrograde, we are going to experience two different energies: the bold and overly confident type of communication of Leo and the mood-swinging and sensitive type of energies of Cancer.
This particular retrograde happens during the season of the Eclipse. When the ruler of technology, thought processes, and communication stations retrograde, we will turn off our phones, and we cannot find them, we will forget to send some important texts or emails, etc. We have to prepare ourselves for such moments during the following three weeks.
At the time of the retrograde, we have to look inwards. This will be an excellent period to do our dream work or meditate on plans and goals, particularly spiritual ones. We should take this time in order to discover what we should expect during all the planetary movements.
Here are the elements we should work with during the retrograde:
- Colors: blue-gray and silver;
- Herbs: lemon balm, honeysuckle, and hyssop;
- Flowers: water lily, lotus, and jasmine;
- Stones: pearl, white agate, moonstone;
- Scents: frankincense, and orris;
- Animals: turtle, crab, whale, and dolphin;
- Trees: acacia, oak, and ash;
- Birds: ibis, swallow, and starling.
As July is usually the month during which new buck deer antlers push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur, the moon will also be called the Full Buck Moon.
The Full Moon in Capricorn will be all about balancing the commitment we have to our families and career. Something was building inside us, and now it will be the time when the cosmos’ energy fairly demands us to let it out. During the following two weeks, we are going to discover what all this also means for all of us. We cannot sit on the feelings we have, but we should express them.
This Full Moon is going to illuminate the conflict that exists between direction and roots. With the Moon, there will be full symbolic illumination happening in our lives. But, these new revelations and feelings will be emotional. It will be the time of expressing ourselves and letting things out of the system.
We should take the needed time in order to imagine and pray what we want during the Full Moon.
The Full Moon will burst with energies – some negative and some positive too. It will be a good period of tuning into our intuitive selves as this is going to help us keep our emotions.
If we don’t do that, our emotions are going to run at very high levels and will cause us some problems with finances or relationships. It will be time to keep ourselves balanced because it is going to be easy to feel quite emotional during the Full Moon. It will be an excellent period to get our chakras balanced too.
With our Moon being in the sign of Capricorn, it will be the time for some creativity. We should use this particular time in order to let our creative side appear on the surface and express it in positive ways. We should permit the thunder to be the power standing behind our creativity, particularly during the following 28 days.
Practicing meditation and keeping our mind focused, especially on positive thoughts, will be the best possible things we can do during this period. With these energies, negative thoughts may appear, causing us to explode. We should take the needed time to imagine and pray for what we want at the time of the Full Moon.
This lunar cycle will be an excellent period for all of us. It will be the time to charge and cleanse our crystals, putting them under the Sun, at the time of the day, and then under the Moon during the night. Our crystals have to be periodically cleaned, in order to release them of residue energies and make them function properly and at their best and highest capacity.
