CANCER NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE
First of all, Happy Solstice!
The wheel of the year continues to turn.
The New Moon Solar eclipse is at 2:41 EST on June 21, 2020 at 00 degrees 21 minutes Cancer.
Zero degrees of any dig in a chart is particularly potent.
We have the opportunity to commune with, and heal our emotional body at this new Moon.
When the Moon is new, she is not visible to us. This can cause us to feel bereft.
We may feel a bit lost, and the remedy is to go within and commune with the eternal light of the hearth/heart within.
My own mother moved on to the wider realms this past week, so this Cancer new Moon is especially poignant for me.
We have all been asked, on the individual and as a collective, to find ways to calm and soothe the emotional body as the events in the world have unfolded.
We all have the baseline of the pandemic. The energy of ecological shifts and social revolution have been added to the experience.
On the individual level, life has proceeded – changes in career, in fortune. We have experienced births and deaths and the change from one season to the next.
We are human animals and all of these experiences call us to find ways to adapt and cope and soothe the emotional body so that we can carry on, and so that we can participate in the evolution that is under way.
The Moon, which is Cancer’s ruling body, leads the way.
It is useful to know where your Moon is in your natal chart to become familiar with how you experienced and process emotions. This is what leads us in the life journey.
At the moment, we have Mercury retrograde at 14 degrees Cancer. Old words or ideas may come back to haunt us. If they do, they have come back to enlighten and heal us, and to remind us that we have dominion over our own thoughts and feelings. How we felt about a conversation held years ago may be released.
The way to move forward is to give the mind and heart new and encouraging words, thoughts and feelings that invite us to start again in the way we wish to move forward.
Make a new dish that is inviting and delicious that you want to devour.
No more ruminating on the whys and wherefores of old conversations.
Proclaim it healed and invite in a new vocabulary and a new mindset that soothes the spirit. Give yourself permission.
The Cancer/Capricorn axis asks us to take up the mantle of our own authority and to be responsible for our own emotional bodies.
Venus is retrograde at 5 Gemini and will resume forward motion on 25 June.
As Cancer Moon is early home life and Gemini is our siblings, it’s possible that the family history could be up for review and healing. Secrets may be revealed.
Neptune, the higher octave of Venus will go retrograde on June 22 at 20 degrees Pisces. Saturn and Jupiter continue their retrograde motion.
A quincunx with the Sun, Moon in Cancer, and Saturn at 0 degrees Aquarius, will be a wild card asking for attention to how we experience and react to and process events involving authority and institutions.
Taking a vacation from social media and news at this time will be beneficial. The call is to the within, to examine what is true through the lens of our own inner authority.
The wheel of the year is turning. Our days in the Northern Hemisphere are now shortening, and the Antipodeans get to see the increase of the light. Many blessings to us all, in every realm and in every state of being.
May we feel love, May we feel compassion, May we experience ever deepening understanding. And as we experience a greater unfoldment, we will radiate these qualities to all.
Much love, Lydia
TIME FOR TRUTH AND JUSTICE
SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON AND LUNAR ECLIPSE
We have the first of three eclipses in this twice annual eclipse cycle.
The full moon is at 15 degrees Sagittarius at 3:12 PM EST.
This eclipse cycle features two Lunar eclipses with a solar eclipse in between. This happens from time to time.
Eclipses affect the group, the community, those in authority, and the leaders, if we can identify them. They initiate energy for the next six months.
Mars in Pisces squares the Sun at this full Moon. Mars in Pisces connects us to our very souls on a visceral level. Actions and words may ease some tension but true union and interaction with the inner Self is the only thing that will steady and satisfy our inner fires.
Venus retrograde at 12 degrees Gemini is conjunct the Sun. The Venus, then also squares Mars. Venus retrograde in Gemini guides us to ways to review our self talk – how do we feed ourselves with care, love and the value we want and need?
It is a journey, Life, that we share with others. But it is in the quiet of the first morning light and how we greet ourselves on return from our nighttime sojourns in the cosmic pool that indicate the direction of self care.
Starting the day with a good morning to the self and then to our surrounding nature, pets, plants and partners is a good practice during the Venus retrograde in Gemini.
If we treat ourselves with care and consideration, the care and consideration will radiate outward to all we encounter in the course of the day — on all levels – physical, emotional, mental.
Gemini Sun wants information. Sagittarius Full Moon wants to find the Truth in that information. It wants to synthesize that information into a worldview that makes sense.
Sagittarius energy is learning to hold a piece of information and run it through the lens of its intuition. Does that feel true to me? Can I add that piece of information to others I am holding in my consciousness to make a cohesive story?
Telling a truth from a lie is part of the business Sagittarius/Gemini axis.
The North Node in Gemini is widely conjunct the Sun at the full Moon. We are asked to use experience, intuition and maturity when picking up, evaluating and sharing pieces of information.
We ask if it is helpful, is it true, does it advance the evolution of my consciousness and the consciousness of others who may see it and take it on board?
Saturn, presently retrograde at 1 degree of Aquarius is ready for a transformation in the structure of society and authority. We are experiencing this now.
We examine the information we see and evaluate ourselves to reveal and work through and release prejudices — we all have some.
We look at what is True with the full Moon eclipse in Sagittarius opposing Sun in Gemini.
Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, is squaring Saturn. Uranus, currently in Taurus, is the higher Mind asking us to value and care about information that is circulating in “the Field” of human awareness.
Uranus rules Aquarius – the sign of community, of equality, without small-minded compartmentalization.
Uranus is the larger mind, the Higher Mind, the detached mind that doesn’t have time for, or interest in, preferences or prejudices. Uranus knows what it’s like to be cast out and Aquarius wants equality.
In Taurus, Uranus asks us to value and care for all in a level playing field. Revolution ensues when Saturn enters Aquarius and the old authorities with their death grip on power are met with those who want to love all and serve all.
We are experiencing a round of this call to action and reformation.
Taurus rules the throat. It rules the throat. Uranus in Taurus and Taurus rules the throat. The current wave of the Civil Rights Movement was inflamed when George Floyd was lynched by a boot on his fifth chakra – Taurus.
This brought on a global, unifying outcry – Uranus.
We need to have a clear fifth chakra to breathe and to speak. Taurus is ruled by Venus and Venus is about Love. Venus is also about safety and value of the self. Venus is conjunct the Sun at this full Moon eclipse. Engagement with the retrograde Venus can mean sending healing to everyone who has been silenced, breath cut off, life cut short.
The color of the fifth chakra, the throat, is blue. Sending blue light to the throats of every being — forward and backward in time, starting with our own throats, is an action we can take to liberation, healing, freedom, unity.
We can speak up, speak out. We can admit what we know and what we don’t know. Gemini Sun wants to know more.
The Sagittarius polarity is about about Truth and Justice. We can shine a light on the lies and shine a light on the Truth. The Saturn dip into Aquarius says it’s time for the community of humans to gather for Truth and Justice.
We can Learn the Truth. Our intuition will guide us to information to enlighten and inform. We can share helpful information and we can support our friends who want to know more. Share what we learn. Share the love. 🖤 Black lives matter.🖤
Lots of love to everyone.
