Dramatic Eclipses of July; How to Benefit from 7/2 and 7/16 Eclipses

waves of light eraoflightdotcomIf you’ve been feeling intense energies since Solstice you’re not alone. We had a mega-energy gateway then, and we simultaneously began feeling the build-up to this month’s eclipses. Tuesday we have a solar eclipse in the sign of Cancer at the new moon – the only total solar eclipse of 2019. Continue reading to understand how you can personally benefit from both that eclipse and the lunar eclipse July 16 at the full moon.


Eclipses are like mega transformers – for individuals and society as a whole. They stir things up. They bring things to light, sometimes in startling ways. The set of two eclipses in July will be a key energy highlight of 2019. In my “Predictions 2019″ ebook I describe the ‘wild card factors” involved.

This is definitely one of those times when you want to be present to what’s going on in your life, what you want to change about how you live, and how you want to restructure things that aren’t working.

If you’re fortunate enough to be in South America to witness Tuesday’s eclipse, you’re in for quite a treat. You don’t need to be anywhere near an eclipse to feel it and benefit however. These are planetary events that impact all of us, even if we forget it’s happening. You can view it online too.

For those of you in the parts of Chile and Argentina able to view the eclipse, share your experiences and pictures with us on my main Facebook page – Selacia, The Council of 12.

Solar Eclipse in Cancer – July 2

Since this week’s eclipse is in the sign of Cancer, consider what’s going on in your home life and whether you are receiving the nurturing you need to thrive – either via self-care or from others. Ask yourself what about your home, or perhaps your business if you work from home, could use updating or a new perspective.

Sample Questions to Ask

What’s missing?

What are you overlooking?

What could you do or avoid doing to create a more peaceful, creative, and loving space?

What can you change to spark your creativity and joyfulness?

Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn – July 16

Since eclipse effects begin unfolding well in advance of the actual event, consider that you are also starting to feel the lunar eclipse coming two weeks from now. Since that one is in the sign of Capricorn, themes involving business and your relationship to the material world will come front and center. Most likely you’re already focused on these topics, especially given the chaotic state of our global society and the many unknowns existing.

This second eclipse is also a full moon, greatly amplifying energies and intensity you and others feel. Be mindful of that as you engage with others on a personal or business level. Even people who know nothing about astrology or energy cycles will be feeling a wide range of emotions throughout July.

Roadblock Becomes Doorway

It’s common during these times to feel blocked in an area of one’s life – something feeling stalled, not moving, or simply no energy juice available to change what you want to change.

Consider this: when you are present and do inner work during this month’s eclipse cycle, the roadblock sensed in front of you may suddenly appear with a doorway. Work with this metaphor in your own way. Remember quantum – it doesn’t help to push or insist in a forceful way that the doorway appear. Doing that can block seeing what is already there. Openness and receptiveness – along with being present – can help you discover the door.

The Power of Intention

Having clear and specific intentions of what you want to create is essential too. Get your heart involved, so there’s feeling with the intentions. Journal or otherwise write down your intentions during this powerful time too. Re-reading them and saying them out loud both reminds you of what you want to create and serves as an anchor within your body-mind.

Whatever you do this month, daily remind yourself that you are alive now on purpose and that you are divinely guided to create your best life.
