July Total Solar Eclipse In Cancer
July 2, 2019
Get out of your own way. Shatter the illusion and see beyond the veil.
This New Moon in Cancer is like a surge of water splashing all over us. It’s a Total Solar Eclipse!
So, let’s break this down and see what all this means. The Sun is in Cancer illuminating all our emotions, feelings, and family karma that needs to be healed. The Sun is also aligned with the North Node really telling us as a collective, that this is where we need to put our focus! Not just now, but for a while! It’s just being highlighted right now.
The Moon, which rules over Cancer, will totally cross in front of the Sun and block out its light. Now, the Sun represents our life-force and our spiritual connection as well as our ego expression. Where the Moon represents ego reaction, survival, and selfishness. So what happens when our selfish, reactive mind eclipses our spiritual light and ego expressiveness in the sign of home, family, and feelings?
Every #MeToo violation began with a “me first” – someone wanted to get what they wanted and took advantage of the situation. We all do this to greater or lesser degrees, yet we are often distracted by the media with the extreme displays of our collective patterns. We have within us that which we see in the world and the Total Solar Eclipse will show us exactly where we are acting like people we don’t like.
When we connect to the 48-hour lunar window of this Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer, we can receive all the energy we need to overcome the negative forces that want to distract us from our life’s work. With this New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer, we need to work harder because our subconscious patterns will act out and creep out of their dark corners of our minds. Our job will be to not believe what they make us feel so that we can release them. Once we do, we have more room and more capacity for magic, miracles, and wonders in our realities.
It is truly an amazing opportunity to release self-destructive subconscious patterns and program ourselves with positive ones. 24 hours before and 24 hours after the New Moon Total Solar Eclipse is a cosmic window where our deep subconscious programming will come out from the shadows and allow us to deal with whatever we have suppressed so that it will not contaminate our efforts.
To make the most of this, we need to access the quantum level of this New Moon in Cancer in order to avoid any pitfalls the opportunity presents us with. To access the quantum quest of Cancer, we open ourselves to the following question:
What Truths about myself reveal(s) the story of my life? How do I deal with this realization?
As we work with this question, we proactively prevent the Eclipse from inviting disorder and anxiety in our lives.
We all have a story, some of us have many. Sometimes we get so caught up in them that we forget that we can change our story if we wish too. Our horoscopes help us shatter illusions as they tell us about our stories, and in many cases, our astrological charts give us an objective perspective so that we can look at our lives with fresh eyes.
Astrology is just a tool to help us overcome and transcend our karma. But we can only do it by utilizing our free will. In order to utilize our free will, we need to have some amount of control over our ego because the ego is in charge of our free will.
If we don’t have control over our expressive ego, our chances to consciously overcome our astrology are slim. What usually happens is that the stars filter our experiences like a movie script that cannot be changed. We suffer through it, learn our lessons, and then (hopefully) we cultivate the desire to do things differently. But this can all be avoided when we are continuously working with our charts with the help of a teacher who will be honest with us and guide us into taking the next steps.
It’s not enough to know why our story is the way it is, we need to know how to change it!
When the Sun is blocked, our expressive ego is weakened, which means that we can either totally give up, or use the Eclipse as a moment to program our ego to take orders from our essential self. It’s a classic case of getting out of our own way so that the universe can help us! Cancer rules over the shores, and this Total Solar Eclipse will be visible from the Southern Pacific Ocean east of New Zealand and in Argentina at sunset.
This Eclipse is also a powerful time to eliminate pollution and disease from the shores and reefs on our planet (ruled by Cancer). We can put our focus on healing the waters that meet land all across the world to help Mother Earth revitalize herself during the healing time that Cancer presents.
We can also meditate to eliminate spiritual, mental and emotional epidemics. The human mind tends to pay attention to immediate crises that bestow shock value, totally ignoring the fact that many people have been in a state of crisis for years! We can turn our focus onto the people and places which have been plagued with ongoing misfortune. It is in these places where tragedy has been the normal and no longer “newsworthy”. But they need our healing energy and focus too.
Honesty moves anything that is stuck
The Eclipse will be making a square to Chiron in Aries giving us support and incentive to resolve deep-seated wounds. In our quest to bring therapy to ourselves, we can think of what we can do for others who are in need. Ironically, the most powerful type of therapy is the kind where we self-reflect and allow suppressed energies to arise and release. Never forget that we are protected when we are honest with ourselves.
We are being asked to look at something unpleasant about our identity and to use it to build ourselves into something stronger than we could have ever imagined. The ego must be subdued so that we can use it for God’s will. The Eclipse will also be making a sextile to Uranus in Taurus which will be great for money! Will may just have great inspiration that will require the absolute submission of our ego. If we can execute these great ideas while putting out egotistical needs and moodiness aside, we can accomplish great wealth and thereby the expression of life!
We can finally, find ourselves connected to the divine, eliminating and separation altogether as the great Yin and Yang come together as one.
The New Moon, which represents our vessel, is empty and ready to receive everything it needs for its 29-day journey around the zodiacal city. As it transits through each neighborhood, it collects and gathers various gifts and lessons. Yet before it departs for its journey, there is a 48-hour window of preparation where the energy downloads everything necessary to make the journey a successful one and with our meditation, we assure that we can receive it all.
