A lunar eclipse is always a full moon but a full moon is not always a lunar eclipse. There is a lunar eclipse at this full moon as the Moon moves into the perfect position so that the Earth blocks the light of the Sun. Astrologically, a lunar eclipse is at least double the power of a normal full moon in its effect.
The full moon on July 4 is at 11:44 p.m. CDT here in the Midwest, so on July 5 in the eastern time zone and Europe. It is at 13° Capricorn, the sign of work and responsibility. It's a good time to put a little extra effort into your to do list or tasks relating to high priority projects. It can be a good time to learn a new time management skill, such as the simple pomodoro technique or the more robust "Getting Things Done" by David Allen.
My article "Dreams and Dreaming" for the July/August issue of Yoga Chicago Magazine isn't online yet, but the printed magazine may be at your local yoga or fitness center. Here are some of the main points from the astrology forecast for this lunar eclipse:
Mercury goes direct on July 12. Always use caution in verbal and written communications around Mercury station points. A few days after the 12th things that have gone backward will start to move forward again and things that you lost over the last several weeks may reappear.
