The Capricorn Lunar Eclipse is likely to be a powerful one for a number of reasons:
- It is the LAST eclipse in the Cancer-Capricorn axis before we finally move fully into the new 18 month cycle of Gemini-Sagittarius nodal energy which will colour all eclipses between now and Dec 2021.
2. It will also occur during the annual Sirian alignment, when the Sun and earth align with Sirius from the sign of Cancer. However, this year, there is an additional twist: at the Full Moon eclipse, the Moon will join this alignment, but from the other side of the zodiac (Capricorn). This means that at the lunar eclipse, the luminaries will form a polar axis of energy that will connect the alpha stars of BOTH Lyra AND Sirius – Vega and Canis Majoris. At the centre will be the Earth! Wow, right?
So, what is this likely to mean? In a nutshell, this alignment seems to indicate a balancing of polar energies, As an astrologer, this indicates to me an opportunity for important balancing of opposites or paradigm-shifting via a connection/collaboration between what are reported to be two of the oldest star nations in our galaxy, both of whom are thought to be responsible for seeding and shaping the human race.
According to Aspen Rain of The Starseeds Compass:
Lyrans are some of the oldest souls in our galaxy and have incarnated into several other star systems including Arcturus, Sirius and the Pleiades. Lyran beings are diverse in appearance but they have some common behavioral traits. All Lyrans are humanoid and are said to be the root race of all humanoid races in our galaxy.The Starseeds Compass
So, historically, there is a link between Lyrans and Sirians. This may well be amplified (or perhaps alternatively, polarised, depending on where you stand in the dualistic spectrum) at the eclipse.
The key to understanding what type of shifts to expect may well lie in the energetic body – according to Aspen, Lyrans are masters of the root chakra, which is all about survival, physical wellbeing and abundance; while Sirians are adepts of the sacral and throat chakras, governing self-expression, confidence, self-empowerment, as well as victim-victimiser patterns. All of which seem to suggests the possibility of new healing modalities (possibly using a combination of fire and water) or earth-friendly technologies and innovations arising out of a joining-up of Lyran and Sirian civilisations – combining the best of both worlds, so to speak.
A balancing of masculine and feminine energies?
This is already part of the signature of this eclipse via the alingment of Sun & Moon, Cancer & Capricorn, but perhaps this may be taken to a new, more galactic level via this star alignment and activation. Aspen says that Lyrans have a strong Divine Masculine energy, while Sirius, certainly according to the ancient Egyptians, was closely associated with the Divine Feminine. They called this star Sothis, and saw her as representing their mother goddess, Isis. (Orion, on the other hand, represented Osiris). I look forward to seeing what starseed channels connected to those two star systems have to say. about this particular starseed activation
Special Importance for the US
3. Taking place very close to Independence Day in the US, a few hours after 4th of July celebrations, the Capricorn lunar eclipse could also prove to be significant for America – not only will the eclipse Sun and Moon be making EXACT contact with the Cancer Sun in the US Sibley chart, but the luminaries will also be forming a T-square to the US Saturn in Libra.
With a retrograde Saturn having just regressed back into Capricorn in time for the eclipse, I think it likely that this eclipse will precipitate a collective karmic test relating to authority, national identity and the rule of law. With transiting Mars in Aries also making a square to the US Jupiter, it’s possible that we could see a flare up in violence or civil unrest, perhaps with connections to previous Lyran wars. I have been meaning to finish a post on the upcoming lunar eclipse for my Astroinsights Blog, so will look in more detail at the US chart then.
Interestingly, the US Sibley chart has the Sun in Cancer conjunct Sirius, making it a very important fixed star in terms of American national identity, so whatever happens as a result of the Sirius-Lyra eclipse alignment could also affect the United States too. Given the importance of independence, democracy and individual liberty, both to the US and the Lyrans, this may well be a key theme running through whatever events transpire at this time, and in the two weeks that follow.
