No denying this Lunar Eclipse July 2018 one of the most challenging eclipses of the year, but it is also a very brave one. The stakes are high with so many issues that need resolving which must be faced seriously. Any projects must be given enough time for those stubborn kinks to be ironed out. There will have to be some short-term sacrifices for long-term gain too. The temptation is to be far too easily dismissive and Mars square Uranus has very little patience also.

Maybe it is easier to keep searching for that greener grass rather than take on what seems to be a very complex domestic situation with oh so much baggage.

Trust, composure and persistence are needed and inner demons will have to be faced. As with all T-squares, once worked through, the rewards from this lunar eclipse July 2018 will be well worth the effort.
