Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn:

Security Versus Ambition

A Lunar Eclipse can seem dramatic, particularly in a total eclipse, where the Moon appears to turn orangey-red. These so-called Blood Moons would have appeared frightening to our distant ancestors, so it’s no surprise that a Lunar Eclipse was sometimes seen as a bad omen in astrology. These days, the astrological Lunar Eclipse is seen as a cosmic shake-up – but not necessarily a bad one.

What is a Lunar Eclipse?

A Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Earth, Moon and Sun form an Earth sandwich, for want of a better phrase. The Moon lies in direct opposition to the Sun, in what would normally be called a Full Moon – however, during a Lunar Eclipse, the Moon is in just the right position for the Earth’s shadow to cover it, fully or partially. This means that the light reaching the Full Moon is filtered through our atmosphere, giving it the eerie reddish tinge (during a total Lunar Eclipse).

Lunar Eclipses are not rare events – there are at least two every year and sometimes as many as five, although most of them are not total. From any given location, you will be able to see a total Lunar Eclipse approximately every two and a half years.

What is the Astrological Significance of a Lunar Eclipse?

Modern astrologers believe that eclipses, whether a solar eclipse or a lunar, are change-bringers. In astrology, the Lunar Eclipse brings shocks and surprises in the same way that a Solar Eclipse does, but these are often internal and emotional rather than in our external circumstances.

Just as our view of the Moon is altered during a Lunar Eclipse, so our view of ourselves and others can be altered too. In astrology, think of a Lunar Eclipse as showing you true colors, either your own, or someone else’s.

Not every eclipse will affect you as an individual. It depends on where the planets were in the exact moment you were born as to which eclipses are more likely to be significant in your life; if the eclipse falls in a relatively stable or insignificant part of your chart, it may well pass un-noticed – but when an eclipse hits the major points of your chart, it can reflect life-changing drama.

What Does the Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn Mean?

The Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn affects the astrological axis which connects the opposite signs of Capricorn and Cancer. Traditionally, Capricorn is the sign of work, duty and responsibility, while Cancer is the sign of the home, family and roots. The tension between these two sides of our lives is where many of us will feel the effects of this Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon.

Wherever this eclipse falls in your personal chart, you will feel a conflict between the need to protect and nurture something or someone versus the need to push ahead with ambitions and drives.

On a geopolitical stage, any eclipse in Capricorn has implications for government and for the structure of society. Because this is a Lunar Eclipse, we can expect to see some muddying of the waters on a political level, or something which was previously hidden coming to light.

How Will the Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn Affect Each Zodiac Sign?

Each zodiac sign will experience the Capricorn Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon slightly differently, and some signs will be much more affected than others – it all depends on the individual’s natal chart and on what the other planets are doing in the chart at the same time.

Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

Remember that there is more to you than what you do for a living, Aries. You may be given an opportunity to pursue success in your material life, but you must balance this carefully against the costs it may have to you on a personal level.

Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

Restlessness and an urge to explore the world may mean having to leave behind that which has previously made you feel safe and secure, Taurus. It’s a good thing to step out of your comfort zone, but be sure that this is what you truly want at this time – don’t turn your back on something merely to please someone else.

Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

Emotional transformation can be painful during this eclipse, and you may feel that you have been backed into a corner and left with no choice in the matter. You may be right – but it has only come to this because you were reluctant to act sooner. Your lesson here is to be willing to take action of your own volition, without waiting for the cosmos to force your hand in what it unfolds.

Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

Intense emotions surround your love life during this eclipse and there could be some emotional drama on the way. If you’re in love and happy, this is nothing you can’t fix; if, however, your relationship is damaged and your heart is not really in it, then this energy could bring about an ending, regardless of your best efforts.

Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 22) During Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

Focus on your mental health during this Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon. You’ve been ignoring a potential problem for too long now. It’s time to put your own wellbeing first during this new beginning, even if that means letting other people down in the short term. Don’t be bossed around by others, or pressured into doing something you know is wrong.

Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 23 – September 22) During Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

Creativity gets a real boost during this Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon, but this creativity may be driven by emotional angst – which won’t be much fun. Expect to feel some pain or to cry some tears, but know that you have the power to turn this negative sorrow and emotion into something beautiful.

Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 23 – October 22) During Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

You’re being challenged during this Eclipse to step out into the big, wide world. Your desire for safety and security is holding you back. Don’t be surprised if events force you into the limelight, despite your desire to hide away. You’re more capable than you think but sometimes you only realize this when you’re forced to step up.

Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

It’s not so much what you say during this Eclipse as what you would like to say but hold back on. It’s time to speak your truth, even if it offends or upsets some people. Bottling up your feelings is no longer an option, so say your piece and be prepared to deal with the resulting fallout.

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

The Lunar Eclipse is in your finance zone, which could mean some shocks and surprises in money. Your actual finances are not really the issue though – it’s more about how you deal with uncertainty and insecurity. Work on your emotional stability, as this is what you need to get you through any material issues.

Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 19) During Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

A Lunar Eclipse in your own sign is a major moment of emotional breakthrough. You may find the scales falling from your eyes now, but what you see could sadden or anger you. People are not who you thought they were. Hold your friends and allies close, because not everyone is on your side.

Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 20– February 17) During Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

A Lunar Eclipse in the most spiritual area of your chart brings you pause for thought. You may feel conflicted about following a spiritual calling, as opposed to trying to pursue material success. Find a middle ground that lets you be who you truly are while still providing for your family.

Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

This Lunar Eclipse has to do with trust, and in particular your trust in society. You want those around you to do the right thing, but they let you down. If you want to create a more just or principled society, you’re going to have to start leading it yourself.

    I enjoy attending Zoom events on Thursday, especially when you choose and analyze charts for those who are present at the time. I can imagine their faces and I already know their names, and I feel like I know you all :-) And I'm always thrilled the way you react (like a child) when you open any chart, because you always see good things first, but also give useful advice when needed. That says a lot about you Kelli and I just love it. Thank you for that! :-) P.S. I can't mark the stars (I don't know why) but they're all on!Cached

    Kelli, thank you for all your insights regarding our Astrological charts. Your swift insightful comments on our weekly Zoom meeting regarding our personal charts, and what we add in the chat as comments, are especially helpful. It’s like learning another language, after a while it all seems to gel and make sense.Cached
