I see love in the stars, specifically within this full moon eclipse—Dr. King is with us.

The divine masculine and feminine are calling for resolution and recognition—our culture is overwhelmed with the truth. Humanity has been doing things really wrong, for a really long time. But it’s okay—we can make it through this.

Sun in Capricorn/Aquarius 0 degree eclipses moon in Leo 1 degree is a doorway, and there is love on the other side. Walking into the spotlight, Dr. King stands with us, always—his memory especially potent and more relevant than ever.

“Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

This weekend’s eclipse is reflective of our cultural upheaval: Capricorn and Leo in opposition—two masculine signs, one fire and one earth—Saturn versus sun—Aquarius also ruled by Saturn, another father on the scene. Father to father to father—then the moon, the mother, the seed of everything, comes in to lend the voice of mercy.

Is your child a bully, or aware he or she is worthy of love? These are the questions that must be asked of both mothers and fathers—this eclipse is calling for it. This is not just the perfect time, it is culturally required, and Martin Luther King Jr. reminds us why we are here. The portal is open.

The moon is the feminine, our mother ruled by emotions and care, eclipsed by the sun, nestled next to our correction, the North Node. Sitting with her natural companion, Leo the lion protecting her and standing beside her, eclipsing his love upon her, for six hours, six days, and six weeks we will feel this effect. During this eclipse, the sun worships the moon in public. Good men are called forth to show us what loving masculinity looks like.

“If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.” ~ Martin Luther King. Jr.

Moon in Leo sits as a couple, mother and father, ruling and guiding their family toward betterment of the human condition. Our mother is higher knowledge and leads us to our greatest understanding of ourselves. Our father is protective and encouraging, always helping us embrace our specific special. The midheaven asks for outward recognition of the family’s wrong turn, but because the moon is the mother of emotions, we find empathy for our mistakes—because we can forgive when we are human; it’s a gift we all possess. This is the lesson of the mother and she is here to remind us of our humanity and our potential for compassion.

We can find forgiveness within this eclipse; the only cost is our pride. For one who fears themselves unlovable, this price might be too high. Mother moon lovingly loves them anyway. When mothers are asked to mother children that are not ours we do not say no. There are boys trapped in men’s bodies, who do not know motherly love—this contributes to toxic masculinity. We mothers can heal it.

An eclipse is an opposition; disruption is in the eye of the perceptive. There is unity interwoven between opposing planets, there is flow and there is change—they can feed each other if we allow ourselves to be brave enough to profess truth and to forgive.

“Love is the most durable power in the world.” ~ Martin Luther King. Jr.

This is a time of radical intimacy and lines should be crossed in the name of love. We must all unify and decide we will not settle for less than the love we desire—then we allow our desire to reach deep down into our wounded hearts, waiting for the light to return from its original source.

Below every angry man is a hurt little boy. Under every angry and scorned woman is a hurt little girl. We must remember we were created to serve each other, equally—this is creation’s infinite wish. We have it in us to understand each other.

If we are aware and consciously tap into this rare and unique event with an open heart and an open mind, we can build a bridge that will carry generations after us, to either side of the equation with understanding and a true desire to thrive as a human community. There is infinity written in this moment. Dr. King is with us always, may we rise to meet his call.

“People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don’t know each other; they don’t know each other because they have not communicated with each other.” ~ Martin Luther King. Jr.

Capricorn at the bottom of the chart is inner work, it’s familial, it’s deep, it’s closest. Generational understanding and knowledge is required to live comfortably with Pluto, Saturn, Mercury, and sun placed in the third house of Capricorn. There is no room for superficial conversations or pretending we aren’t something we are. Get to the core issue and enjoy the feast—we will be love drunk by the time it’s over. Change is required, and it can be fun if we allow for sudden paradigm shifts. When we allow for vulnerability, we allow unity. We must be brave, which isn’t hard with Saturn or Pluto in Capricorn—use it.

Leo at the midheaven holding the moon, says it’s time for women to step forward and lead, we must redirect ourselves toward love and acceptance with quick and swift organization—we must not talk of disruption but become disruptive with love, we must stand for our future no matter how uncertain it is, with certainty. The moon in Leo knows the light; she knows what it takes to generate the fire of the lion. We all have a lion within; let us embrace it with the height of this event. We will not go extinct today.

The future of the world lies between the relationship of the masculine and the feminine. This eclipse is a doorway that leads to the understanding of the systemic issues we are facing; we are in a generational pull that we must learn to direct for the benefit of all.

“A lie cannot live.” ~ Martin Luther King. Jr.

There is no need to take toxic masculinity personally, it is a generational issue that we have the merit to heal and change. We are the generations to do it. We must believe in ourselves, and each other.

We are the creators of our own story—we make the movie. This weekend’s eclipse is a rare opportunity to embrace the reinvigoration of past events and actions that no longer serve us. Letting go of consciousness that no longer serves humanity, seeking to be better through sharing and caring about each other. Ask for these things even if you don’t know how.

This full moon eclipse is a magic portal, and Martin Luther King Jr. is here to walk through it with us.

May our greatest desires manifest an enlightened and loving community for all generations to come.
