It’s essential that you work on being your own guru this week, Scorpio. This is something you should strive for every day of your life, but especially during this week’s Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn. As much as you may seek external guidance to help you get through this cluster of powerful shifts, you must be your own guide first and foremost. Seek your own truth. Hear it loud and clear. Let it liberate you. Let it lift you higher. Let it clear the confusion and chaos, and strengthen your will to soar.
The Capricorn eclipse takes place on Tuesday the 16th, two weeks after the Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse took place. This mid-point of the month is testing your patience, your ability to overcome self-doubt, insecurities, and guilt. It’s testing your ability to stand up for yourself, establish boundaries when necessary, recognize your own shortcomings, and dare to rebuild your life from a stable foundation. You are not here to get rocked around every time something or someone triggers you. You are here to be firmly rooted in fertile soil, and ready to rise. It’s normal to feel surrounded by darkness at times, just like a seed is right before it buds into a plant.
Wednesday and Thursday, you may feel prepared to take a leap of faith professionally. It’s a post-eclipse world, and absolutely anything is possible, so why limit yourself? Since we’re still in the midst of Mercury Retrograde, it’s best for you to focus on an element or dream from the past that you’re ready to pick back up or complete. This is a powerful week for completing passion projects that you previously procrastinated on. It’s not enough to visualize the end result — you have to put in the work to get there, Scorpio. Use this Capricorn eclipse to learn how to become friends with self-discipline. Don’t only apply this mentality to work, but also to maintaining healthy friendships and relationships, taking care of your mental, spiritual and physical health, being more aligned with managing your finances, etc… This week is about restructuring.
On Friday the 19th, Mercury Retrograde shifts out of Leo and enters Cancer. The Cancer energy in the cosmos is not cutting us some slack at all, and there’s a reason for this. You see, Scorpio, in order for you to not repeat the same toxic patterns in relationships in 2020, you really have to awaken to what those patterns are in the first place. They aren’t your fault or something you should blame yourself for — they are a product of unhealthy and often unconscious conditioning that often has roots in our childhood. A fear of abandonment, lack of self-worth, feelings of inadequacy etc… can often manifest as us either seeking to be completed by a lover, friend, job, identity, etc… And/or it can lead to us being overly self-protective, suspicious, territorial, sarcastic, etc… and pushing away that which we want most. Mercury Retrograde in Cancer will help us acknowledge these sometimes painful truths, and once we allow ourselves to feel them fully, we will then be able to find solutions towards overcoming them. Breathe, Scorpio. Your future self will thank you for the evolutionary work you’re currently doing.
Romantically, this isn’t the week to initiate a huge break-up, or even make-up. Be curious about the discussions and conversations that emerge at this time, without feeling like you have to make a life or death decision about it. Even if you’re deeply shook by the revelations that take place during this eclipse, you should avoid being reactionary. It’s easier said than done, and there may be moments this week where you slip up. This doesn’t mean you have to bite your tongue and not express yourself. Definitely share and release what’s on your heart. But just don’t place pressure on yourself to know what your next move in love is. Because you’re not necessarily supposed to know right now. A lot is still making its way to you. A lot is still being processed, both by yourself and others. So focus on being secure within yourself, even in the midst of uncertainty and unpredictability. No matter what, you got you. So take care of yourself, unapologetically.
