At 2:41am on Sunday (EST) we have the New Moon Solar Eclipse at 0:21 Cancer. We are nearing the end of the Eclipses across the Cancer/Capricorn axis. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on Jul 5 at 13:38 Capricorn is the last one for the next 8-9 years. At that time, though, the North Node will be in Capricorn.
As these Eclipses repeat every 18-19 years, the last Solar Eclipse to occur at 0 Cancer was on Jun 21, 2001 at 0:00 Cancer. Think back to that Eclipse to see how things changed and what the Fresh Start was about.
Solar Eclipses in Cancer cause us to change some of our self-indulgent ways. We change our family priorities or physically move homes. Some of our old habits and self-protective feelings will fall away to be replaced by new ones. As this Eclipse is so close to the Summer Solstice, events will likely occur very quickly as Cancer is a Cardinal Sign (initiating energy) as well. Changes can pull on your emotions (Cancer ruled by the Moon) and there can be some drama tied to it. But at the same time, it will be a change that needs to occur.
Events having to do with mom, home, family, land and homeland (emotional roots of your hometown) are front and center. The House where you have 0:21 Cancer will tell you WHO is involved with this issue over the rest of the Eclipse cycle.
The Eclipse, from start to finish, lasts for 5 hours 48 minutes so the effects of the Eclipse can be felt for 5 years and 9 months according to Astrological lore. For the most part, it is felt strongly for the current Eclipse cycle and most changes are wrapped up by the time the next Eclipse cycle begins. In this case that will be Nov 30 with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 8:38 Gemini.
Looking at aspects make at the time of the Eclipse, the Sun and Moon are still Conjunct the North Node at 29:07 Gemini; Quincunx Saturn Rx at 0:40 Aquarius and separating from a Binovile to Chiron Rx at 9:15 Aries. Let’s look at each of these.
The Conjunction to the North Node is common to most Eclipses because where the Nodes fall is where the Eclipses occur. But this NN is out of Sign of this Eclipse. We are emphasizing mental constructs, communication, neighborhood and community issues, as well as local transportation via the NN in Gemini. But the Sun and Moon are initiating a fresh start around mom, home, family and land. So put all of these energies together to see this aspect play out.
The Quincunx to Saturn is that an adjustment needs to be made between the fresh-start of the Eclipse and our accountability to socializing or social networking. See what the adjustment is that needs to be made.
Chiron in Aries has been the issue of wearing a ‘face mask’ as Aries rules parts of the face and the way we assert ourselves. A Binovile aspect (of 80 degrees) is a Soulful aspect of testing our capabilities in connection with human expectations. There has been challenges around who is wearing a mask and who isn’t. Put that together will security-conscious Cancer and you will see how we are dealing with other peoples’ expectations of whether or not we wear a mask. Or some other issue of lack of motivation or insecurity could be the issue as well.
The Ascendant of the Chart changes by your location. But the rest of the Chart is very similar to the Solstice Chart so there strong energies will be at play for a while yet. We still have Venus Rx and Mercury Rx so they both in review mode. Venus will Station Direct on Jun 25 at 5:20 Gemini. But Neptune is already on his exact Retrograde Station and will Retrograde on Jun 23 at 20:58 Pisces.
This is a very strong Solar Eclipse and will be visible over the following countries (so they will feel it most powerfully): Asia, Middle East, Southeastern Europe, and Northeastern Africa with specific path across Ethiopia, Yemen, Oman, Pakistan, Kashmir, Tibet, the heart of China and Taiwan.
If you have been watching any global news (which you have to dig to find in the US), you would know this is where so much activity is centered. There is talk that Indian fighting China on their border will be about freeing Tibet. And of course, Taiwan is being brought into global prominence away from Chinese control as well. Big events will occur across these countries.
So by now you likely know the issues YOU are dealing with. Just trust that there is a plan. When the Eclipse energy tells you that you are moving… start packing even though you don’t know WHERE you might land yet… that will be revealed shortly. If you know you are to move out of town or state, MOVE, then the job and/or support will follow.
For the US, the Eclipse occurs in the 1st House as the US is a Cancer Sun country. This will mean a fresh start in the way we assert ourselves and new security-conscious arrangements. We can choose which ‘partners’ to keep or let go of. And the news has been filled with the different directions we have been taking lately. It can ALL be accounted for through reading the Charts.
