Whatever gets through the night, it’s all right, it’s all right.” (John Lennon)
Uranus just joined the retrograde parade along with Jupiter, Neptune AND Pluto. That’s four celestial heavyweights, all dancing backwards through space and time, titans, returning yet again, through the houses, where they have meaning.
Something is stirring, whirling, whirring, churning towards the eclipse on the horizon, where the darkened Moon in the shadow of The Goat opposes the loving and nurturing Cancer Sun on 7/7 (hmmmmmmm?).
The upcoming eclipse portends something dark, potentially ominous, positively transformational. Is it to be feared? Respected? Ridden like an onyx serpent through the uncertainty of night? It’s not what it seems–nothing is–beneath the eclipse of the moon.
See through the darkness. Feel your way up the belly to the source of life. It is a time for grasping and groping answers, for meaning, for order and yet, this Moon asks us to surrender to our instincts, the true magnetic north of our souls, that which pulls us through to the other side.
The other side of the Moon is where the journey ends, in the hearth and home of pure, psychic immersion and oneness. But the path from here to there is almost invisible.
What we do know is that Pluto in Capricorn is making tracks. It’s rising in power and force and as I have chronicled here before, Pluto is and will be opposing planets in The US chart. Key planets. This Full Moon, eclipsed will also do the same. I have no idea what will transpire, but there is faith that is born out of tempests and furies.
Find your God and find your faith.
As these divine mysteries occasionally do, clues are left to confirm that we may indeed be on the right path, as the same degree of Uranus’s retrograde start (26 degrees), the Sabian Symbol for the Moon in Capricorn is the following; “Pilgrims Climbing The Steep Steps Leading To A Mountain Shrine.” Here again we are witness to a journey, one that requires a fair amount of endurance, purpose and commitment. As Uranus sextiles The Moon at the same degree, the Sabian Symbol for Pisces is; “The Harvest Moon Illumines A Clear Autumnal Sky.” Here we see the promise of radiance, fullness and luminescence after the shrouded specter of the moon passes, but is the promise merely an illusion? An ephemeral reflectionof hope?
We’ll find out soon enough.

I’m especially concerned because the lunar eclipse on 7/7 is at 15 degrees of each sign–the Sun at 15 Cancer and the Moon at 15 Capricorn. My natal Sun is 17 Cancer. Does that mean this eclipse will affect me more intensely? Should I be afraid?
We’re all in it together Raven. Just relax, breath and let go. You’ll be fine.
