The full moon peaks on Monday (2.30 p.m. EST). No ordinary moon, you’ll want to consider this — the lunar eclipse — as totally extra.

At this phase of the moon’s cycle, emotions are typically heightened, yet during eclipse season, the action’s supercharged. All manner of issues can come full circle, so expect the unexpected. Secrets can surface, information can be clarified and changes can be implemented.

Thankfully, the remainder of the week is unusually harmonious. It’s summertime, and the livin’ is easy as stars align bringing support and affirmation to our plans. Conversations are nurturing and stabilizing. And into the weekend, we can be swept away by romantic notions and a gorgeous, great escape.
