Solar Eclipse in Cancer- A New Emotional Journey

Solar Eclipse in Cancer

A New Emotional Journey

Solar Eclipse in Cancer July 12, 2018

Follow the gleam. Alferd Lord Tennyson

 

July’s solar eclipse in Cancer takes place on July 12, 10:48 p.m. EST, and will usher in new opportunities, changes, and fresh starts that will set the stage for 2019. Solar eclipses are all about new life chapters and will open a window of opportunity for you to leave behind what’s not working and start with a clean slate.

This particular eclipse is a Partial Eclipse, and although on the one hand is fairly common, will have special significance because of its direct opposition to Pluto, the farthest (yet arguably most potent) planet from the earth. In mythology Pluto is God of the Underworld, a tyrant who has the power to entrap and seduce to ensure he gets his way, at all costs. Those who have Pluto predominate in their chart often carry a ruthless, power driven edge that unleashes their deepest fears and desires, for better or worse.

Now in Capricorn, an earth sign that symbolizes structure, resilience, and material achievement, Pluto’s influence will encourage you to find the deepest cracks of your life so they can be permanently sealed. If you have Cancer or Capricorn strong in your chart, you will feel the effect of this eclipse most strongly, although all signs will experience a noticeable shift in a particular area of life.

 

ARIES (March 21- April 19)

A relocation, estate, or family concern will require you to keep your emotions in check and take on a higher leadership role. If something in your personal life is keeping you off balance, squarely address it, and new energy will open for you to strive for a professional milestone.

TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)

Justice will shine through with a legal settlement, sibling, global pursuit, or negotiation, but you’ll need to hold on to your moral compass and trust that you have the strength to do the right thing. Know your rights, but also have respect for policies in place, and you’ll earn new found respect.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Trust that your money will work for you once you decide on who or what entity to partner with. Have a strong hold on what belongs to you, yet the wisdom to let go of what you longer need, and you’ll create a new opportunity for long term wealth.

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Fundamental changes you’ve almost given up on will start to give way, but you’ll need to have the courage to change your perspective and trust that what comes your way is absolutely meant for you. Discern your instinct from your ego, and your humility will bless you with unprecedented power.

 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Listen to your body, as this will help you create balance where you most need it. A new way of life that honors your inner self will ironically increase your productivity and ultimately make you a force of nature. First however, you’ll need to succumb to the fragility of your human nature.

 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Virgo isn’t much for crowds, but this solar eclipse will encourage you to spread your wings and break free from your own inhibition. Take the lead, extend an invitation, throw a party, let others know how much you want to give, and slowly but surely, your creative spirit will blossom.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Give all yourself when helping others, and although at times you may feel unseen, your efforts will yield long lasting results that will awaken your life purpose and lay the foundation for your legacy. Know in your heart that you already have within you what you want to be; the rest is divine timing.

 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Dare yourself to think bigger than you ever have, and you’ll find a nugget of truth that will set the Jeanie out of the bottle. Test your logic against your faith, Scorpio, and in that space you’ll discover a secret wish that belongs only to you. In this wish lies the spark of your highest spiritual quest.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Now is the time to face your private fears about not having or being enough so you can embark on new terrain. Dive deep into the waters of vulnerability, and even if you cannot swim, trust that you will be rescued. Your talent is like gold; respect its value and prosperity will follow you, in devotion.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Unpeel the layers of your closest relationship, and you’ll likely realize you and your partner are more deeply entwined than you could ever imagine. Accept any insecurity you may feel as a gift, and you’ll create a healing space of fertile soil which can give way to eternal roots for your deepest union.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A new feeling of vitality, focus, and innocence is possible for you, but you’ll need to face your demons before you see the light of where you’re truly headed. What seems like a detour will likely turn out to be a blessing in disguise, and the stronger your self-knowledge, the faster you’ll find the right path.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Invite love into your heart Pisces, as this will give you the power to change your future for the better, and steer your ship against the fiercest winds. Your child, sweetheart, or creative passion holds the key to an expanded vision for your life. Honor this fact, and you’ll see a whole new world that’s held in place by your biggest dream.

The Sun’s journey through the constellation of Aquarius will last until Sunday, February 18. As the zodiac’s third air sign, Aquarius reflects the mature intellectual who thrives off objectivity. Aquarius is also infamous for being the best friend who forever remains loyal. While the Sun shines in Aquarius, you’ll have an opportunity to show up for a friend, become more active in your community, and create emotional distance from an ongoing circumstance that requires you to stretch your personality. This will help you gain wisdom as you strive to do bigger and better things, as Aquarius is also the sign of higher vision and new possibilities.

The New Moon in Capricorn, the sign of maturity and perseverance, arrives on Tuesday, January 16, at 9:17 p.m. EST, and will be active until Friday, January 26.

This unique planetary alignment will add a romantic, artistic flair to all new endeavors in the coming weeks. Thanks to the influence of Capricorn, no matter how inspired or romantic you may feel, you’ll likely remain grounded and will be inclined to think long-term. If you are a creative professional or aspiring artist, your commitment to your work will help your artistry flourish. If you are in business (Capricorn’s domain), your professionalism and social grace can now help you secure a lucrative opportunity.

Great American Total Solar Eclipse 2017

GREAT AMERICAN  SOLAR ECLIPSE OF 2017

Total Solar Eclipse in Leo

Great American Eclipse

Beautiful Silhouette by Richard Calmes

 

The total solar eclipse in 28 degrees of Leo will be exact on Monday, August 21, at 2: 30 p.m. EST. Positive new beginnings can be expected no matter what sign you are, but fire signs will benefit most, due the grand fire trine (a most auspicious alignment of 120 degrees) between the new moon in Leo (i.e. the eclipse), Saturn at 21 degrees Sagittarius, and Uranus at 28 degrees Aries (retrograde until January 3, 2018).

What makes this eclipse even more special is its tight proximity to Regulus, a spectacularly bright  star in the heart of the Lion, for the constellation of Leo,  at 29 degrees. This star is known to bring good fortune, and is prominent in the charts of many celebrated actors, politicians, as well as royalty, and well known historical figures.

One thing for sure is change is on its way! Ready or not! Saturn’s influence will likely add a sobering effect, as Saturn in the planet of stability and longevity. Sagittarian’s will likely feel this influence the most, since Saturn is now in their sign. But that won’t be the whole picture- as Uranus known for bringing the unexpected and shaking things up. Get ready to venture in new territory that feels a little rocky- after a month or so, you’ll likely gain foresight and balance to help you ground yourself as you master your footing.

 

Meanwhile, why not set the tone from the very beginning and create your own dance?! Terpsichore is in Sagittarius, the sign of adventure and travel- so wherever you are, show your moves!

Aquarius Lunar Eclipse

The Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius will leave you feeling optimistic and energized, which will set a positive tone for the entire month of August. The opposition to Mars, however ( the planet of aggression), suggests you’ll have to fight for your unique vision in regards to a future goal, and it might be difficult to convince a VIP to see things your way. Still, the overall impact will be a good one, thanks to the moon’s beautiful alignment with Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, now in Libra, the sign of partnership. A significant relationship will be in the spotlight. Full moons bring awareness, and a lunar eclipse has three to four times the impact of a full moon. Your intuition will be strong now, especially if you’re an Aquarius,- so trust your feelings.  With a touch of social finesse, you can make a significant gain via a connection with someone in the know. A legal matter, intellectual endeavor, media pursuit, or business opportunity will can be finalized now, and the results will likely make you very happy (as that’s Jupiter’s job)!

The goal of all life is death.

Sigmund Freud , Scorpio Rising, Taurus Sun, and Moon in Scorpio

This full moon will fall in 20 degrees of Scorpio, and those who have birthdays within five days of November 10, ( or who have their moon within 5 degrees of Scorpio)will likely feel it the most. Scorpio is notorious for being the zodiac’s most intense sign, and when the full moon falls in Scorpio, this is even more true!

Emotions will run deep. Ultimatums will brew to the surface, and your will power will likely be severely tested. The good news is the moon will be harmoniously aligned with Neptune, the planet of idealism and compassion, which will ultimately lead to a positive outcome. What’s even better is that the moon will be in perfect synch with Scorpio’s ruling planet, Pluto. This connection will add depth and soul to any major decision you make during this full moon cycle (to last until Tuesday, May 23).

It is true that Scorpio thrives off of living on the edge. This full moon cycle will be your opportunity to get out of your own way and let go of any deep fear you may have that’s been holding you back. Now will be the time to let go, and trust that you are powerful enough to attain what you most desire.

May Overview

 

ARIES (March 21- April 19)

With Mars, the rulers of Aries, in your chart’s arena of communication, you’ll be wise to think before you speak. Be adaptable, and you’ll get others on your side. A back and forth exchange in the way you negotiate will give you more room to navigate, so do your best to listen intently and put yourself in the mind of whoever is across the table (not easy, but with effort you’ll master it)! Thursday, May 11, will be a stand out as Mars will perfectly align with Saturn, the task master planet. This will bode well for international affairs, travel, media, academia, and legal matters. You’ll have incredible endurance, so use this day to go all the way with a challenging project- as you’ll likely complete it, with finesse. Sunday, the 28th, will be a day to watch out for, as Mars will be in direct opposition to Saturn, and your patience will be tested. Distance will help you remain objective, and with Saturn involved, you’ll likely learn an important lesson about temperance.

 

TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)

The full moon in Scorpio (the complimentary sign of Taurus), on Wednesday, May 10, will be a stand out for you. In positive alignment with Pluto, the planet o regeneration, this full moon cycle will favor travel, foreign culture, and spirituality. You’ll be stimulated by partnership, and will likely want to spend your free time with someone special (especially if you’re single). If you’ve been dating someone regularly, between May 10 and May 18, you’ll have an opportunity to either take your union to the next level, or complete it, and move on. Either way, with Pluto involved, you’ll feel invigorated, and ready for a new romantic chapter. The Sun will remain in Taurus until Friday, May 19, so you still have time to put your best foot forward with your most cherished personal ambition. After that, the Sun will enter Gemini (an air sign that’s much less grounded than Taurus), and multitasking will become important, as you gain momentum toward your #1 goal. Get clear now, as this will make it easier to think on your feet later, when you’ll need to master last minute changes.

 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

This will be a fabulous day for a breakthrough idea you can apply to technology, social media, or humanitarian endeavor.

If you need freedom or independence from a situation, person, you’ll have the courage to speak your mind and take action. The new influence of the new moon in Gemini on Thursday, May 25th, will last approximately two weeks, and will energize you until the end of the month. You’ll have a creative edge you can easily apply to sales, negotiation, and networking. If you’re an artist, your imagination will be vivid, and you’ll likely be inspired to take an artistic risk and explore unknown territory. Let your mind relax as much as possible, and the seeds for promising new ideas will likely sprout and blossom into tangible results.

 

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Romance will be a highlight for you this month, thanks to the full moon in your fellow water sign, Scorpio, on Wednesday, May 9. This full moon will be in favorable alignment with Pluto, the planet of regeneration, and Neptune, the planet of idealism, so it’s likely you’ll be feeling optimistic and hopeful about your love life. If you’ve been single for a long time and have been seeking a new partner, you may finally meet someone with whom you feel a natural connection, or take a risk and express your feelings to someone who intrigues you. On May 15, when the moon in Capricorn (Cancer’s complimentary sign), unites with Pluto, emotions will likely run deep, someone close to you will likely test your loyalty. Your honesty will carry a lot of weight this day, and your vulnerability will likely be an asset, especially in your most intimate relationship. Once the Sun enters Gemini on Saturday, May 20, and lights up your chart’s arena of spirituality and solitude, you’ll benefit from going inward. Find time to reflect on the past twelve months, and you’ll gain insight on what will bring you’re the greatest fulfillment for your new birthday year.

Your ambition will create lasting momentum for a milestone you’d like to reach, so if you have a hunch you have what it takes to conquer a great obstacle, or meet an incredible challenge, your instincts will likely be spot on! You’ll want to mark Monday May 8, and Tuesday, May 9, on your calendar, as these will be powerful days for you. On these days the Sun will be gorgeous alignment, with Pluto, the planet of empowerment, and will power, and you’ll the power of persuasion at your disposal. If you’re diligent, a job interview, lucrative assignment, or pay raise will likely lead you in a fabulous new direction that will lead to even better possibilities.

This time will be best spent out and about, and will be great for launching a social media campaign, and making a name for yourself within your professional circle.

 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

An exciting new partnership will be possible (if that’s what you desire), thanks to the close embrace between Mercury (Virgo’s ruler), and Uranus, the planet of innovation, on Tuesday, May 9. This cosmic union will lead straight into the full moon in Scorpio (on Wednesday, May 10) which will light up your chart’s arena of negotiation, and contracts. It’s likely you’ll finalize the terms for an agreement with someone important, during this full moon cycle, and with Scorpio involved, you’ll likely be passionate about moving forward. The full moon will be in positive alignment (a sextile, 60 degrees apart), with Pluto, the planet of empowerment, now in your fellow earth sign, Capricorn. This will create a spark in your love life as well as your creative expression that will last until Tuesday, May 23. The month will conclude in grand fashion for you, thanks to the beautiful trine (a perfect harmonious alignment of 180 distance) between Mercury and Pluto, which will become exact on Wednesday, May 31, at 8 am EST. Profess your love to someone special, as your affection will likely be generously returned.

 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

An important relationship will likely be at the center of heart this month, as Venus, the planet of love (and Libra’s ruler), will be in Aries, Libra’s complimentary sign. Others will likely be drawn to your charm and want to be in your presence, so if you’re single and looking, you’ll be wise to be out and about! Aries is a confident sign that wastes no time, so it’s likely if someone is interested in you, he or she will be very direct in letting you know. This will make it easy for you to develop a connection with someone new, as Libra can sometimes be shy and indecisive when it comes to matters of the heart. Thursday, May 18, and Friday May 19, will be important days for you, when Venus will challenge Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and expansion (now in Libra). Overindulgence in romance or food, or a lavish shopping spree may get the best of you if you’re not careful. Yet sometimes we all have to ‘live a little’, and these days will definitely mark such a time where having what you desire will make life all the sweeter.

 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You’ll likely find this month to be one of the most memorable of 2017, thanks to the full moon in Scorpio, on Wednesday, May 10 (to reach exact fullness at 5:42 p.m. EST). This full moon will be a beauty, as it will be beautiful alignment with Neptune, the planet of idealism, and Pluto, the planet of empowerment. Now in your fellow water sign, Pisces, Neptune will shine light on your love life, and bless your with new experiences of the heart, that you’ll likely remember for a lifetime. This will be a great match with Pluto (Scorpio’s ruler), now in your chart’s arena of communication; this influence will transform the way you relate to others, and will challenge you to a higher level of learning as you reach enter a new chapter of intellectual mastery. If you’re in sales, marketing, or communication, this full moon cycle will likely bring a favorable deal to a successful close, and you may acquire a lucrative new account, or client. Whatever your circumstance might be, the light of the moon will out the cards in your favor, Scorpio. Use your hand wisely, and you’ll cruise through 2017 with purpose, and finesse.

 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your instincts will likely be 100% accurate on Thursday, May 11, when Mercury, the planet of the mind, perfectly aligns with Saturn, the planet of wisdom and maturity (now in Sagittarius).

If you’re single, you’ll likely meet someone new by socializing with your best friend, as Gemini is the sign of friendship. Make time in your schedule to catch up with those who are important to you, as this will lighten your spirit and enhance your magnetism.

 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

With Pluto, the planet of metamorphosis and empowerment, in Capricorn, you’ll be encouraged to make deep, inner changes that will last for a lifetime. Whether your priority is to improve your health, love life, or carve out a new life direction, you’ll have the endurance and motivation to go all the way and reach you your goal. Although Pluto is a tiny planet, its influence is powerful. Pluto entered Capricorn in November of 2008 will stay in Capricorn until 2023, so you’re more than half way toward reinventing yourself- which is exactly what Pluto wants you to do; changes things up, get rid of what doesn’t work, and get down to the essentials of your life purpose. The beginning of the month until Tuesday, May 9, will be a powerful time for you, as the Sun will make a beautiful alignment with Pluto. This will be a wonderful time to express your creativity, profess your love to someone special, or take a risk, as you’ll likely land firmly on two feet. The end of the month will be great time to close a lucrative deal or bring on a promising new account or client, as Mercury, the negotiation planet will be in Taurus (great for money) and make a beautiful connection with Pluto-a perfect cosmic duo for you!

 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Life will get easier for you once Mercury awakens from its retrograde and resumes forward motion, on Wednesday, May 3. Now in Aries ( a sign of little patience), and traveling through your chart’s arena of short distance travel, negotiation, and communication, Mercury’s retrograde has likely intensified miscommunication and make your everyday life more cumbersome than usual. After May 3, it’s likely you’ll gradually feel a weight lifted off your shoulders. You’re thinking will be more clear, and it will easier to effectively manage your daily schedule, and keep you with appointments, e-mails, and phone calls. The full moon in Scorpio, (a sign of great intensity) on Wednesday, May 10, will likely become the highlight of the month for you, especially in regards to your career. This full moon will ignite the peak of your chart, where your greatest achievement can be fully recognized by the public. If you’re a performing artist, public speaker, or other professional who deals with the pubic, the full moon cycle (to last until Tuesday, May 23), will be especially powerful for you. An investor, lead executive, or head hunter may express interest in you, and the timing will likely be right on. Prepare for success, Aquarius, as this month will take you on the fast track to what you truly desire.

 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Optimism will come naturally for you this month, thanks to the full moon in your fellow water sign, Scorpio, which will peak on Wednesday, May 10. A vacation, citizenship matter, media, or academic pursuit will likely give you reason to smile, and renew your faith. If you belong to a church and are involved in a spiritual retreat, or other similar adventure, you’ll likely have a life changing experience. If you’re an aspiring student, you’ll likely be ready to make your final decision about what school or college to attend, and secure an appropriate financial aid package. This positive influence of this full moon will be boosted by Neptune (the ruler of Pisces), so the time from May 10 thru May 23 will likely be extra sweet for you. Day you’ll be wise to watch out for will be May 9 and May 10, as this will be when Mars, the action planet will confront Neptune, your ruler (now in Pisces). During this time, what you feel urged to do may not be in your best interest for the long term, as you’ll likely be too eager to make a move, before you know all the facts. Wait until after the full moon, on May 10, to make and hard and fast changes, and you’ll be glad you did.
