Lunar Eclipse July 2019 Astrology ~ Capricorn Decan 3
Lunar Eclipse July 2019 Fixed Star ~ Peacock
Alpha Pavo is found in the Peacock. It’s meaning is rather obvious, the Peacock is supposed to be vain, and loves to display itself. But Robson says it also gives fame and a long life. I believe it makes men particularly attractive since of course, it is the male bird that has the beautiful plumage.
“The peacock was endowed with the power to kill snakes, and apparently, they are known to eat small poisonous snakes. Because of its ability to swallow snakes and assimilate their venom, it was seen as a symbol of transmutation, and the venom gave its flesh an immunity to decay. It also accounted for its colourful plumage”
This immunity from decay is interesting, suggesting longevity to one’s name after death and possibly the ability to preserve one’s good looks into old age also. “The shimmering colours of his tail feathers were explained by his supposed ability to transform snake venom into solar iridescence”.
Since this decan is also ruled by the sun, I think there is an association with royalty too. This decan produces natural leaders but there could also be a fascination with royals, or even a believe they are connected to some special bloodline.
The Sun also accounts for the creativity found here and a great sense of theatre. The Peacock is also the sacred bird of Hera. She placed the eyes of Argus Panoptes (the hundred-eyed giant who sees all) on the peacock’s tail as a reward for his services. Argus is also associated with the Latin for silver “Argentum”, and it was said that Indus, the neighbouring constellation was the discoverer of silver.
The 3rd Face Of Capricorn
“A man opening a book which he opens and closes, and before him is the tail of a fish. This is the face of wealth and the accumulation of money and increase and embarking in trade and pressing on to a good trade” ~ Picatrix

Lunar Eclipse July 2019 ~ Aspects
Moon conjunct Pluto is penetrating, provocative and plunges headlong into the dark sea of lunar emotions without fear. Those touched by this lunar eclipse will want nothing less than dramatic and intense sexual relationships that profoundly transform their souls. The general vibe at this lunar eclipse is that the closer we brush with death and trauma, the more alive we feel.
Moon conjunct Pluto may get obsessively involved with a project or person, but then suddenly swoop off alone to process the commotion they have created. It’s not that Moon conjunct Pluto intentionally goes out to create turmoil in peoples lives, it’s just it seems to attract and absorb the suppressed demons from the collective. It should certainly stir up emotions at this full moon lunar eclipse.
Sun opposite Pluto swings between extremes of light and dark. Extrovert and introvert. The brighter the Sun the darker the shadow is a cliche but works so well with this aspect. A very sunny exterior could be masking heartache and a very traumatic life. This aspect pushes the collective to live life on the edge. Lives can be full of drama and there will be much brushing with death and the taboo. At worse this can involve drugs and crime.
This aspect is serious about secrecy and control. It is the lunar eclipse to bring our extreme control freaks. The expression ‘anally retentive’ was invented for this aspect, for it rules over its domain with an iron will and a steel fist. Those touched by this eclipse will need to know where everything is at all times. This is an energy that can be intimidating and in extreme cases tyrannical.
