Solar Eclipse in Cancer

1 Jul

clown tearsThe upcoming Cancer New Moon July 2nd is a Total Solar Eclipse.  Eclipses are significant in Astrology.  They’re like powerful portals of energy that propel life forward by shifting your trajectory and altering your path.  This can seem like a single incident, happenstance or perhaps a series of events that seem to put you right where you need to be.  This Eclipse is very close to the future oriented North Node suggesting that you’re about to land in a place that feels right at home.

“I’m on my way.  I’m on my way.  Home sweet home”

The Sabian Symbol for the Eclipse degree is, “a clown making grimaces” implying that masks are dropping as you express your emotions.

Cancer is the sign of home, family, feelings, moods and emotions and a solar eclipse is a powerful New Moon that sets the tone for the year ahead.  There could be new developments within these areas, perhaps starting new traditions and making new memories.

Across the sky, Saturn sits sternly, sharing the same degree with the South Node in Capricorn—representing what has once been the standard, the establishment, the old guard. Fears, doubts and uncertainties could have you clinging to status quo.  Now it’s time to learn what’s proved to be a reliable model or framework and to let go of what’s limiting and restrictive so that you can foster what feels right.

The pressure builds through July 9th.  A situation may call for striking a balance in caring for and looking after others while setting some boundaries and rules.   Perhaps obligations or scheduling crunches are weighing on you. There could be a culmination to goals set in the beginning of the year, especially those dealing with property, land, building or structuring business.

Mars enters Leo for the first time in nearly two years, firing up your feelings, sparking your spontaneity and encouraging your enthusiasm.  You may be pushing your luck, taking chances and operating from deep within your heart of hearts.

Mars and Mercury move closer to another meetup; this time in Leo, as Mercury pauses before backtracking for the rest of the month while extending the effects of their encounter.  You may want to act on creative plans, perhaps those that were put on the backburner for whatever reason.  During this period, you could revisit old favorites and pastimes. It’s possible you reconnect with childhood friends, long forgotten passions and even former flames.  You want involvement and participation, to play with ideas, to entertain or be entertained and to do things that make you feel vibrant and alive.  It’s as if something’s awakening your heart and mind as you’re feeling pleased with your mental musings. Alternatively, you could have heated conversations and strong words that may be full of hot air, bragging or self-importance.  Additionally, you could be enjoying time with children or children’s activities, playmates, teaching and learning may also play a role now.

Venus enters Cancer just one day after the Eclipse and you may enjoy being with your closest loved ones, entertaining at home, or even spending money on decorating and design, making your home more comfortable and beautiful.   Real estate prices and home values may be important now.

Jupiter in Sagittarius, Saturn in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces all connect with the Nodal axis, shaping the future for generations to come.  This influence suggests altering beliefs and widening your views as there is no room for limitation based on your fears and doubts, there is more opportunity and possibility than you can imagine.

Cancer New Moon

8 Jul

July 8, 2013

 

Today’s New Moon is in the Nurturing and Motherly sign of Cancer.  Cancer governs over our home, family and our early childhood conditioning.  It is ruled by the Moon and is associated with our moods and feelings as well as our memories of the past. Mercury is close to this New Moon enabling us to communicate some of our feelings and emotions.  This New Moon in Cancer also makes a quincunx to Juno in Aquarius requiring an adjustment or modification in the ways we give and receive support within our relationships. It may be that we can modify some of our own childhood conditioning and to create new and different types of relationships.  We may also become aware of the adjustments we need to make in order for us to have some independence and an identity outside of our relationship, marriage and children.  I think that the trine with Venus in Leo and Uranus in Aries further supports this.  We have a need to be valued for our own special-ness along with our unique individuality.  Venus in Leo is also quincunx Chiron in Pisces possibly suggesting that we may have been blind to our deepest wounds and to learn to appreciate our inner child and that may be the key to our healing and wholeness.  Jupiter the Great Benefactor of the Universe has recently moved into Cancer on June 26 until mid-July 2014.  This is a favorable position for Jupiter as it is supportive of our growth.  We may be expanding or improving our home or families during this time.  Look to your natal chart to find out where Jupiter in Cancer is for you personally.  One of the things I’ve noticed since Jupiter entered Cancer is that a number of people that I know personally have recently moved or are planning to move soon.  This New Moon should help to ‘kick off’ those energies.  Also at the time of this New Moon, Saturn in Scorpio goes direct.  He’s been retrograde since February 18th.  Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces are moving into a Grand Water Trine, an easy flow of the water energies but more on that in a few days. 

 On a VERY personal note:  About a week ago, we had some intense thunderstorms here. As I was running to my house from the car trying not to get soaked, the smell of the summer rain as I entered my house catapulted me into an early childhood memory.  I was reminded of my grandparents’ house when I was a child.  It was a place I loved to be and that I always felt comfortable and safe in. My grandparents were more like parents to me. I suddenly felt sadness with a mix of another feeling that I couldn’t quite put my finger on.  All I know is that I wanted to cry.  And I did for a brief moment.  As I stood in my hallway somewhat surprised by my sudden emotional outburst, I realized what the unfamiliar feeling was.  I was homesick.  I suspect that the feeling was so alien to me because I had never had a real home. As a child, moving around was a regular occurrence and sometimes without any prior notice. I also never felt that sense of belonging to my family. I’ve never felt that I belonged with anyone until I had a child of my own.  This little boy has taught me so much.   In fact, I’ve learned much in this past year.  Since I’ve started a family of my own, I had been struggling because I’ve never had a family model.  I realized I didn’t know how to be a family.   In my mind, I had this fantasy of what a family should be and because of that I felt that I was failing miserably. I was falling short on my own expectations and that made me depressed. It was one of those ‘aha’ moments and once I figured that out, I started to let go, forgive and recover. Awareness is key after all.
