If the past few weeks have felt volatile, unpredictable, and overwhelmingly emotional, it's no wonder. You've been enduring eclipse season since July 2, when the total solar eclipse in Cancer planted a seed within your spirit and activated your destiny. Life may feel like it's moving way too fast right now, but that's only because the universe knows you're ready for whatever is in store. You might be wondering, "How will the partial lunar eclipse on July 16 affect me?" Well, if your sun, moon, or rising sign falls under Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn, it will probably affect you a lot.
Transforming your reality at 5:38 p.m. ET, this partial lunar eclipse in Capricorn may bring abrupt endings, conclusions, and revelations along with it. Because an eclipse electrifies the North and South Nodes, it always acts as the harbinger of the inevitable. In astrology, the North Node is the energy you're meant to move toward while the South Node is the energy you're meant to move away from. Because this lunar eclipse will also form a conjunction to Pluto, the changes it evokes are bound to be dark, difficult, and long overdue. Pluto deals with the shadow self and all things that remain beneath the surface. Prepare to reckon with the skeletons wedged tightly in your closet.
Because this eclipse season occurs on the Cancer-Capricorn axis, it will touch on issues relating to your public and private life. It will also challenge the patriarchy and question authority. How are you balancing your need to honor what's in your heart with your ability to step up to the plate?
Read on to find out how it will affect cardinal zodiac signs:
