SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER 2 JULY 2019

SOLAR ECLIPSE – 2 JULY 2019: The Past Is A Strange Place

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER 2 JULY 2019


This particular eclipse is especially important for those who belong to the Signs of the Cardinal Cross (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn), and who are born between June 30 – July 4, October 2 – 6, December 30 –  January 3, and March 28 – April 1. Also to those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 08° – 12° degrees of these Signs.


We have now entered the eclipse season.

This is a period of significance.

 

1. The motions in the sky

In July the planetary movements peak with two eclipses, one important retrogradation and one electrically-charged square.

July starts with a Total Solar Eclipse that takes place on the 2nd of the month.

This eclipse is part of the series of eclipses on the Cancer – Capricorn axis. These eclipses began with the Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 13 2018, and shall continue throughout 2019, up until the summer of 2020, when they will be completed.

This cycle of eclipses in the Cancer – Capricorn axis coincides with the gradual approach of Saturn towards Pluto and their conjunction in the Sign of Capricorn in January 2020, two parallel astrological events that signal a period of 18 months that brings significant changes to Capricorn, Cancer, Aries and Libra Signs, since for them, the effect of the eclipses combined with the conjunction will be more strong.


Remember though, that eclipses are potent Astrological events and affect all of us, more or less, without exception.

Each eclipse’s effect always depends on the aspects it makes and on the houses it activates, in our personal horoscope.

2. The Eclipse

The Total Solar Eclipse of July the 2nd takes place at 10°37′ of the Sign of Cancer and is an eclipse that has a strong resonance to the past while at the same time it opens a window towards the future.

Behind its plain appearance, it conceals rather intricate themes, and besides its main effect on the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) it also plays an important role for those born on the first days of the Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius).

 

3. The darkening of the Sun

A Solar Eclipse is the Moon coming in front of the Sun.

It is a momentary lapse of reason and consciousness, and a plunge deep into the unconscious. Needs are felt deeply and come to the fore. The mind stops, the heart beats, dark lingers for a while, until finally the sun comes out again, bringing something new for our lives, something for which most of the times, we are not prepared.

Under this Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer, issues that have to do with our sense of security, our home, parenting concerns or motherhood, as well as other personal issues that relate to the area of life that the Moon rules in our personal chart, will most likely concern us within the first days after the eclipse.

These same issues will culminate gradually as we approach the following Lunar Eclipse that will take place two weeks afterwards.

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER 2 JULY 2019

 

4. The North Node beacon

What is important, it is that the Sun and the Moon are near the North Node in this eclipse.

This means that the effect that the eclipse will have, regardless of how we may initially feel it, aims to move us forward. In the Sign of Cancer, “forward” may means among other things:

  • We become more aware and responsive to the needs of others in the area denoted by the house the eclipse falls.
  • After the initial shaking of the eclipse, we become more intuitive or emotionally intelligent.
  • Responsibilities that have to do with family or children may burden us more, but it is through this path that our fulfillment lies in the long run and we come to realize it.

 

5. A resonance to the past

I wrote some lines above that this Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer has a strong resonance to the past.

The very essence of Cancer, a Sign that is ruled by Moon, is a clinging to the familiar. In this Eclipse both our conscious (Sun) and our desire (Moon) are positioned in this Watery Sign, steeped with nostalgia and memory.

But as you may know, the past is a strange place…

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER 2 JULY 2019

In this particular eclipse the past, the memory of the past, or the nostalgia for it, may appear unexpectedly and overwhelmingly.

There are two important astrological facts that tie Time with Karma upon the axis of this eclipse.

The first one is the very tight applying conjunction of Saturn to the South Node of the Eclipse, a conjunction almost exact but for 0°06’ minutes!

It is as if Saturn tests us, trying to drag us back to the past, or to past habits, resisting our moving forward towards the North Node and our development.

Discipline, integrity and mastery over habits that have served their purpose needs to be applied.

Karmic cleansing must be applied. Release any fear rooted in the past, leave behind anxiety and pessimism rooted in the need for material security.

Stop testing yourself and your emotions trying to please authoritative persons, seeking career achievements, or trying to adjust to situations or relationships that have been proven rigid.

Care for those that care for you and start tuning to circumstances and relationships that provide not only material but emotional security also.

 

6. Re-prise

The second astrological factor is the fact that planet Mercury is going to turn retrograde on the 7th of July, just five days after the eclipse.

On the eclipse chart, Mercury is conjunct Mars that is situated at 0°31’ of Leo. From this degree Mars is activating once more the Total Lunar Eclipse of the 21st of January 2019.

Think of it for a moment… An eclipse in Cancer is activating a past eclipse that took place in Leo, some days before Mercury turns retrograde in Leo.

Not only this, but Mercury will be also passing retrograde over the previous eclipse’s degree.

It seems that Karmic are the ties that have to be dissolved for Leo, Scorpio, Taurus and Aquarius Signs born on the very first days or for those with personal planets or angles near the 0°-2° degrees of the Fixed Signs.

Persons or past lovers may re-appear, issues that those Signs felt with the previous eclipse are now being re-visited.

It is as if the universe is shouting,


“Re-visit, re-think and let go of the past. Re-cycle it in the dustbin and move on”.

“Release the Karmic burden”.

“Forgive and forget”.


This will not easily happen because both Mars and Mercury are close together and make a conjunction on the 9th of July, in between the two eclipses.

Right on this Mercury – Mars conjunction the planet Uranus is making a square that comes exact to planet Mars on July the 11th.

This is a power-charged square that electrifies the conjunction and may bring impulsive reactions, nervousness, restlessness and to make our tongue sharp.

It amplifies the tension, fuels anger, results in arguments and conflict.

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER 2 JULY 2019

Release, release, release…

This is the only constructive approach to the tension that builds up with this eclipse and to the demand for a Karmic cleansing.

A cleansing and moving forward that will most possibly happen only after the second eclipse that follows on the 16th of July, when the emotional climax will peak.

7. The eclipse effect for the Signs

(applies for rising sign also or natal placements of personal planets near the degree of the eclipse)

 

The eclipse is difficult highlighting issues relative to the houses and the planets it falls on in the natal chart, for Aries, Cancer, Libra Signs, especially those born on the last days of the first decan and the first days of the second decan.

It is empowerment through increased pressure and responsibilities for Capricorn Signs, because they tend to respond better to the Saturnine Energy, even if it’s oppressive.

It is a revisiting of the past or the past re – appearing in the form of persons or situations mostly for Leo and Scorpios and to a lesser extent for Aquarius.

It mostly works positive for Taurus, Virgos, Pisces, Gemini and Sagittarius Signs.

The partial Solar Eclipse on January the 5th or 6th, depending on your place in the globe, is the first of five in total, eclipses, three solar and two lunar, which will occur in 2019.

This eclipse is also part of the series of eclipses on the Cancer – Capricorn axis. These eclipses began with the Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 13 2018, and shall continue throughout 2019, up until the summer of 2020, when they will be completed.

This cycle of eclipses in the Cancer – Capricorn axis coincides with the gradual approach of Saturn towards Pluto and their conjunction in Capricorn in January 2020, thus signaling a period of 18 months that will bring significant changes to Capricorn and Cancer Signs, and also to Aries and Libra Signs, since for them, the effect of the eclipses is stronger.

Remember though, that eclipses are strong Astrological events and affect us all, some less and some more, without exception, and depending on what aspects they make on our personal natal chart.

The solar eclipse of January the 5th / 6th takes place at 15 ° 25′ of the zodiac Sign of Capricorn and is a “multidimensional” and complex eclipse with a variety of expressions, at cosmic and individual level.

Cosmic Level – A photo of the next six months

Focus: Saturn and Pluto

The Sun-Moon conjunction in the Capricorn Sign gives at a cosmic level a semester marked by significant changes in matters of how power is managed and administered world-wide.

The two Lights are in conjunction to Saturn and Pluto and also lie on the midpoint of the two planets. Saturn and Pluto is a combination capable of enhancing the ambitions, goals, and the control that exert, various governmental, corporate, or other hierarchical structures.

Saturn also forms a sextile aspect to with Neptune, an aspect that helps such designs and power visions to be realized, and be at the same time accompanied by a series of necessary reality checks, before they are put into effect.

Background: Jupiter and Neptune

At the same time, however, on the chart of this eclipse, and throughout the year, the square of Jupiter and Neptune is an aspect that undermines these plans, since it speaks of a social disappointment that will be diffused.

A disappointment that stems from the fact that people’s common sense of just (Jupiter in Sagittarius), and a yet unspecified but full of dynamism (square aspect) social vision (Neptune in Pisces), are not represented within the corridors of power.

Jupiter – Neptune in a square of extreme idealism and disillusion, which combined with the great influence that the planet Uranus plays in the general planetary setting, may bring massive mobilizations.

Depth of Field: Uranus and the Moon’s Nodes

The planet Uranus began to form a square to the Moon’s Nodes during the summer eclipses, an aspect that came to a precision in November 2018, and which continues in this and the next eclipse, as also in every New Moon and Full Moon up until mid-March 2019.

The continuous square of Uranus with the Moon’s Nodes brings the energy of the planet into the heart of the events for the period that follows.

Uranus was also the last planet to go retrograde in the dance of the many retrograde planets of the previous summer, and its liberating and disrupting energy will once more start to express when it returns to a direct motion.

When does this happen?

But on January 6 2019, from 28 ° 36 Aries

the same day with the eclipse!

All the sparkling electricity, and revolutionary or subversive action, that lay hidden, now finds an outlet, and the fact that this begins in the same day as the Partial Solar Eclipse, shows us emphatically that at the cosmic level we will see protests and upoars in the coming months.

 

Click Flash – Mercury, Mars and Uranus

Mercury from 1 ° 21 ‘of Capricorn is at the same time in two aspects, a harmonic and a dynamic one, which give even more evidence of how the tension will be expressed.

Mercury in trine to Uranus brings to the power holders strategic thinking and technocratic control, (preserving prestige through control of knowledge, of science and of innovation).

On a square aspect to Mars (who is powerful in the sign of his rulership) brings controversy and juxtaposition of ideas. Angry voices and action that conflicts with what the technocratic power communicates and concedes.

We see how a militant scenario is formed, as the same planet, Mercury, simultaneously stirs strategic changes for the status quo on one hand, and gives voice to protesting and defending the independence of the individual, on the other.

Two other equally important astrological elements that point to the eruptive nature of this eclipse are, the fact that the eclipse is on the Mars/Uranus midpoint and that Mars, already at 3 ° 20’ of Aries, will activate the eclipse soon, on January the 23rd.

That is shortly after the accompanying Lunar Eclipse that will take place on the 21st of the month.

Individual level

Imagine, now that we have analysed the eclipse elements, how all this multidimensional dynamics hidden in the eclipse chart could be expressed in our personal horoscope, giving the tone for the events of the next half-year.

Depending on how the chart of eclipse falls on our personal horoscope and the positive or negative aspects that it forms, possible manifestations may be:

  • Circumstances force us to reformulate our strategy and set goals for issues that have to do with our business or professional plans.
  • We accept more responsibilities, but we also operate with a sense of integrity in the are where the eclipse relates to our personal horoscope.
  • It becomes important to check and calm down reactions and boiling disagreements with close persons.
  • The need comes to speak with vigour and seriousness so as to clarify situations that create cloudy landscapes.
  • We are recognized for our efforts in the professional field and we strengthen our position in the hierarchy.
  • We feel kind of oppressed and a weight in our relationship and this triggers a complete recapitulation of the how and the why with the other person.
  • Issues that have to do with our father or with persons of status and authority bring troubles and difficulties.
  • We become restrained in our working environment and searching for the “ideal job” needs our attention as we are not having realistic ambitions.

Part of the January Solar Eclipse hides pressure and eruptiveness, but at the same time hides the possibilities of empowerment, development and strengthening.

However it plays out, its effect will be possibly felt within a short time, since it will be activated soon, right after the Lunar Eclipse that is to follow.

LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE – 11 AUGUST 2018

LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE – 11 AUGUST 2018: Long Hot Summer – Part Three

LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE - 11 AUGUST 2018This summer is marked by three eclipses and many planets being retrograde during the eclipse season. The combination of these astrological factors is something that is relatively rare and it shapes an unpredictable, dynamic and hot landscape.


This eclipse is especially important for those who belong to the Signs of the Fixed Cross (Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, and Scorpio) and who are born between August 9 – 13, November 9 – 13, February 5 – 9 and May 7 – 11.  Also to those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 16° – 20° degrees of these Signs.


PERSONAL ECLIPSE READING

 

Long Hot Summer – Part Three

The Solar Eclipse of August 11th is the final of the three eclipses of this long, hot summer’s eclipse season. It occurs in the Sign of Leo and succeeds the Solar Eclipse in Cancer and the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius.

This eclipse functions as the aftermath of the highly dynamic period that preceded it. In a sense, it is a new beginning that follows after the realizations and the emotional peaks that we have experienced under the influence of the previous eclipses. Two powerful eclipses that have raised the volume both on personal and mundane level.

The first eclipse challenged our sense of security (Solar Eclipse in Cancer) and made us aware of power plays and pressures at home or in relationships.

The second eclipse, in its mundane expression, has resulted in unpredictable collective drama (Mars retrograde square Uranus and conjunct the South Node in Aquarius). With Mars, the planet of fire, dominant in this second and most difficult eclipse, we have unfortunately witnessed a July that was marked by wild forest fires, high temperatures that made new records and deadly heatwaves, across the globe.

The personal drama (Leo) has been brought into the collective (Aquarius) and the repercussions create political and collective re-action (Mars Retrograde in Aquarius) and re- thinking (Mercury Retrograde).

On a personal level, for many of us this second eclipse was realizations made and most possibly emotional outbursts that we were not able to control.

Now with this third eclipse, that is a New Moon, we will be pushed to make a re-start.

 

Potential to moving forward


LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE - 11 AUGUST 2018

The Solar Eclipse on the 11th of August takes place in Leo and is conjunct the North Node.

This is an aspect that has the potential of bringing intuitive awareness that will move us forward.

In the creative sign of Leo, this aspect with the North Node can work its best provided that we tune into our most noble and self-expressive qualities, detached from ego twists, and conceited mannerisms.


On the personal level we can work relationships with magnanimity and courtesy and bring about closure of past issues or crises which manifested under the influence of the previous Solar Eclipse.

On a mundane level, recent events make it all the more obvious that strong leadership qualities (Leo) and innovative coaching (Uranus ruling Aquarius) is needed in all forms of social and political interactions (Mars in Aquarius). Decisions and solutions are paramount. The times seem to be critical and the repercussions of this summer will be felt in the coming years.

However, both our personal adjustment as well as the integration of the eclipse’s energy into the social collective is a slow process.

LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE - 11 AUGUST 2018

Mercury squares Jupiter

The major aspect of the eclipse is the square of  the retrograde Mercury in Leo to planet Jupiter in Scorpio. This is an aspect that may express with exaggerations in communication, misjudgments and information overload.

On a personal level we have to be aware not to be obsessed or over passionate in debates and talks, to stay focused and to avoid misunderstandings.

On a mundane level it is a period that can lead to risky or misinformed decisions in senior ranks and to high volatility in stock exchanges.

 

LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE - 11 AUGUST 2018

 

The retrograde planets are dancing

Uranus has turned retrograde just four days prior to the eclipse and will continue to move backwards in apparent motion as seen from the Earth until January the 6th 2019 when it will reach 28° of Aries.

This is something very important because Uranus becomes the sixth consecutive planet that turns retrograde adding to the retro feeling of this summer.


The process of creating something out of this eclipses’ energy is slow.

Something new will come to be ONLY AFTER we have done our work with each and every one of the retrograde planets.

ONLY AFTER we have redefined where we stand.


With Uranus retrograde we have to look at things from a fresh perspective and re-define our personal truths. To embrace the new we have first to understand what holds us back whether this be a person, a job or ideas that no longer serve us.

Uranus retrograde process to shape our personal truth works very well with Neptune being retrograde also, because Neptune retrograde helps us to see with clarity and without idealizations. BUT in order to do so we have to first get rid of our personal delusions.

Saturn is also retrograde and we need to redefine our limits and to learn well the evolutionary or karmic lessons that it poses.

Pluto continues to be retrograde and the excavation of our soul is well underway. Pluto’s retrograde period is usually felt as a psychological process that seeks regeneration, purification and results in a healthy urge for survival.

Mars is retrograde and in a high energy state being out-of-bounds during all the eclipses, with his out-of-bounds movement peaking between 14th August and 19th of August, when Mars will reach an astounding declination of 26°29’ South of the ecliptic. Delays and frustration, anger management and redefining of actions is needed.

Mercury is retrograde since the previous eclipse in Aquarius and is also a key player in this eclipse since it is conjunct the two lights. How to form our personal truth and understand our best course of action when Mercury complicates things?

How will to reach to conclusions and make decisions or find solutions within this slow-moving bog of retrograde energy?

 

Uranus links this eclipse to the next one!

LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE - 11 AUGUST 2018

We astrologers see the big picture and understand the cycles.

Uranus has a major role in this summer eclipses, being in a square with Mars and making a 3 degree orb T-square with all the three eclipses Nodal Axis.

Uranus is the last planet in this dance of the retrogrades and its liberating energy will not be felt until it is direct again.

When it is that?

January the 6th 2019,

the very same day that the next eclipse occurs!

It is then, that this cycle of awakening will come to fruition with ideas, insights, liberating energy and manifestation of truth.

Additionally important to the fact that Uranus turns direct on the same day with the next eclipse, is the fact that the planet will once more tightly square the Nodal Axis of both of the winter eclipses .

It is as if these summer eclipses prepare us. They give us lessons and demand us to work with the retrograde planets so as we can be ready for the real changes (Uranus) that are about to come.


That is why this Solar Eclipse in Leo is pivotal.

Because it plays out as the last dress rehearsal with all of us the actors absorbing the script to its last detail prior to coming forth on the scene.


 

A trine aspect reaches its precision with this eclipse

Saturn in Capricorn, has been in an applying trine to Uranus in Taurus throughout the last weeks, and this aspect, with its liberating and grounding energy, comes to a precision of 0° 31’ in this last eclipse of the summer period.

This is the most helpful of all the aspects, since it allows us to manage the changes and the sudden events that resulted from the eclipses, in a responsible manner.

It gives a relative stability within the slow and demanding landscape.

 

A second trine aspect reaches its precision with this eclipse

Jupiter in Scorpio is trine to Neptune in Pisces, an aspect that gradually comes to a very close precision with this last eclipse, culminating on August the 19th.

This is a most benevolent aspect. A divide gift of hope and compassion. It is an aspect that can work as a “Deus ex Machina”, saving us at the last moment, granting hope, bringing gifts, spiritual awareness and increased Faith.

 

Sun drenched days are here again

This is the last eclipse of this long, hot summer and demands introspective work and re-evaluation to all areas pertaining to the retrograde planets.

Its energy is pivotal and has repercussions.

In the short-term, the Solar Eclipse in Leo of the 11th of August is slowly but firmly pushing us out of the bog and slowly builds on hope and a positive vision.

More importantly, it is a critical eclipse. It has a long-term effect and it prepares and grounds us for the shifting changes of the winter eclipses that hold a Uranian promise.

 

I wish you all ,to enjoy the last days of the summer drenched in Sun,

and the best to come,  from the marvelous Jupiter trine Neptune aspect.
