Eclipses bring life-altering events, and it doesn't matter if things in your world are already as peachy as can be. An eclipse changes everything, and this is especially true when it comes to your partial lunar eclipse horoscope on July 16 — you'll have no choice but to surrender to the universe during this time. Though the majority of us find the thought of surrendering totally intimidating, with a partial lunar eclipse on the way, I cannot emphasize enough how important this is. On July 16, there will be a partial lunar eclipse in 24 degrees Capricorn. Full moons bring things to the light, as they're a symbol of completion and endings, so this lunar eclipse will shed light on whatever needs to be acknowledged in your life. The moon also governs the subconscious mind, so your eclipse journey will consist of resetting your emotional world and clearing away your unconscious fears. Some of you might already be feeling things brewing beneath the surface... I know I do. In the days leading up to the eclipse, think back to the new moon solar eclipse in Capricorn on Jan. 5. How have you evolved since?

Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse In Capricorn
There's a powerful eclipse headed your way, and despite the lack of visibility in the Northern Hemisphere, it is affecting us individually and collectively. If you're wondering how this will affect you on a deeper level, however, the emotional meaning of the partial lunar eclipse in Capricorn on July 16 is about recognizing your current reality and general responsibilities. What do your longterm goals look like? Are you happy with the way things are going? Think back to the new moon solar eclipse in Capricorn that took place on Jan. 5. How have you taken full responsibility for yourself since?
On July 16, there will be a cathartic lunar eclipse, sitting alongside Saturn and Pluto retrograde, and the South Node in Capricorn. According to NASA, a partial lunar eclipse takes place when part of the moon enters the earth's shadow. Full moon lunar eclipses are different from new moon solar eclipses as they mark a time to release rather than begin again. The full moon phase brings powerful culminations, but with Saturn retrograde, Pluto retrograde, and the South Node taking the wheel, this will also be the end of an era.
The moon is a symbol of your emotions and the sun is your ego and soul purpose. When the moon is full, it sits directly opposite the sun, which in turn represents both masculine and feminine energies, as well as a call for balance. During this particular lunar eclipse, the moon will conjunct Pluto retrograde, and this will certainly turn the intensity up a notch. Pluto, aka Lord of the Underworld, is the planet of death, power, sex, taboo, and transformation. This celestial predator's cosmic due diligence consists of revealing all that's hidden beneath the surface, and in Capricorn, it knows no mercy.
Also, this full moon is simply part of the Cancer-Capricorn eclipse story, as the grand finale of this eclipse series will take place in January 2020. So hang on tight.
When looking at this from an individual standpoint, however, this lunar eclipse is asking you to turn the page and officially leave the past where it belongs. This full moon is about releasing buried traumas and previously set emotional foundations that no longer align with your higher truth. There are a number of aspects to consider during this lunation, but with the sun and North Node in Cancer, the divine feminine has the upper hand. It's time to hold yourself and your deeper truth accountable. You are not your past, and are no longer a product of toxic patriarchal systems.By Valerie Mesa via Elite Daily
