Your Guide to Lunar & Solar Eclipses in 2019 and How They’ll Affect Your Life
The lunar eclipse July astrology is mainly influenced by Mars, making this an emotionally challenging eclipse. Mars anger and frustration could easily turn to reckless actions because of a harsh aspect to Uranus. However, these same stars can also cause aggression and emotional problems. Remaining calm in a crisis is the key to dealing with this overly emotional lunar eclipse. It brings the potential for a crisis with your self-esteem, a relationship or an event, and for neurotic distress triggered by a deeply buried subconscious fear of disaster. A blood moon conjunct Mars is an omen of war, and will be most visible over hot spots in the Middle East like Iran , Iraq, Syria and Israel. Like a regular full moon only stronger, a lunar eclipse focuses your attention on your emotions, intimate relationships, and your home and family.
Eclipses are dynamic cosmic occurrences that activate the lunar nodes. Simply put, the moon glides across an elliptical that is constantly rotating around the zodiac. The highest and lowest points of this orbit correspond with the lunar nodes, which appear in our birth charts as south and north nodes. The south and north nodes, often referred to as the Nodes of Fate, symbolize our past and future — our karmic pathway. Accordingly, eclipses activate these nodes within our birth charts, illuminating our destiny.

The sign of the water bearer is all about making the world a better place—not just for ourselves, but for everyone else on the planet. But if any sign stands a chance of making it happen, Aquarius is the one!
