Solar Eclipse in Cancer, 21st June 2020 at 0 degree. Burning Desire.
Solar Eclipses are the most powerful transits that you can experience. They herald major beginnings and endings, burning and purifying.
They can create new beginnings and bright new opportunities.
Usually, they are exciting, are often very positive, and can bring news out of the blue.
This Solar Eclipse in Cancer, is immensely significant and positive in so many ways, as it coincides with the summer solstice and is supercharged at the power degree of 0. This critical degree is a reboot, a rebirth, full of fire and passion. It can bring a sudden burning desire to initiate a new beginning in the area of Your life that most needs it, that especially may have come to your awareness at the last Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius. The Solar Eclipse is reigniting our desire to move forward and succeed, through courage, enthusiasm and leadership.
It contains tremendous possibility to leap into new ways of being in our lives. It is a zero-point of potential – a time out of time – with unknown wild-card outcomes and permutations of reality waiting to be seized.
It is so much easier now to overcome any difficulties, feelings of confusion and being overwhelmed. Feelings that many of us have been confronted with in the past few weeks, heightend by the strong Pisces energy.
As the Sun is darkened by the shadow of the Moon, our intuition (the Moon) – wordless and irrational – overpowers your creative center and power (the Sun). The Moon receives a purely elevating infusion of solar energy. Stimulating the response in humanity to express heart consciousness, the quality we call love. Burning away what no longer serves us, wiping the slate clean and renewing our mind, body and spirit.
If you think of the astrological system as a computer, eclipses are those moments when the divine disk drive writes a new code to the magnetic surface of life. There is, at the same time, the possibility to erase certain ideas and influences for good.
The summer solstice marks the day when the sun is at its highest point in the sky for the year and a time that throughout history represents a new phase of abundance. We can feel our mindset shift from a feeling of lack to one of abundance and real possibilities as Venus in Gemini is ending her retrograde phase and Mars changes signs from Pisces to Aries just days after the eclipse. We have reviewed and rethought our relationships,renewed our vision and our goals at the last Lunar Eclipse and can now re-write the script as the writer and co-creator is you.
This is the last Eclipse in Cancer as the North Node of fate has changed signs from Cancer to Gemini. During the past 18 months with the North Node in Cancer, we have learnt to be our our own source of love, approval and security. We have forged Stronger bonds of love and caring to those that matter to us the most. As we move on to the new lessons of the North Node in Gemini we take with us an unshakeable feeling of self love and inner strength.
Saturn in Aquarius,also at the 0 degree, makes a tense aspect to the Solar Eclipse, creating a revolutionary energy to break with the past, to bring more freedom, new ways of thinking and to stay true to our own uniqueness and individuality, acting in line with our highest ideals. The lesson is however not at any price, at the risk of blind radicalism, but on new strong foundations of lasting change.
The Eclipses charged connection to Saturn in the revolutionary sign of Aquarius is a wake-up call, and we may gain sudden insights, like flashes of lightning giving us fresh, new inspiring ideas about how to do things differently in the areas of our lives that have become stuck and stagnant.
Aquarius is a free spirit, where ideals of freedom, tolerance, and humanitarian values are high on their list.They seek freedom of expression and believe in living together in a brotherhood of man/women based on equality. To enable us to live a life of inner and outer freedom based on truth and justice.
“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”- Albert Camus
It’s time for Idealists and dreamers to unite. As the North Node in Gemini activates us to find our tribe and come together with like-minded people, for we understand now, that we can achieve so much more by working together, than alone. That’s how we bring power to the people.
Eclipse’s are close to the North Nodes of fate, making the Eclipse time highly fated. It’s destiny, putting you back onto the right path and if necessary making a course correction. Fated people and events can happen between now and the end of August, potentially taking you on a completely new and exciting paths.
The Sun is planting secrets, as the Moon meets together in perfect union with the Sun and when the Moon withdraws a re-birthing process begins. A force that bestows some with the influence to work magic and to wield power over vast amounts of people, as new kings and Queens rise, while others fall.
It’s as if the Moon has the ear of the King, and can persuade the King to attend to the planet’s wishes for a time.
It’s one of the most powerful times to set your intentions.
As the Sun and the Moon conjoin in perfect unison, it is a rare chance to realign our ego with our soul self. To get the balance right, on both a personal and collective level. The Sun represents our ego and the Moon our soul.
One of the biggest transformational moments in life, is to realise and understand the difference between soul and ego. A moment that can lead to enlightenment.
As you dissolve into love, your ego fades. You’re not thinking about loving; you’re just being love, radiating like the sun.
~ Ram Dass
Our soul is eternal and always present, even if you don’t always feel it or pay attention to it.
“Ego says: Once everything falls into place, I’ll feel peace.
Spirit says: Find your peace, and then everything will fall into place”.- Marianne Williamson
Mars in Pisces conjoined to Neptune make healing energies available, reminding us that our soul is a source of unconditional love, courage and strength, wisdom, and happiness and joy.
It can’t be harmed by other people’s opinions or external circumstances. It can’t be harmed by anything.
Your soul and true self, are who you are deep down below all the labels, roles, expectations and social mask. Something that doesn’t change – you are born you, and you will forever be you inherently worthwhile – you are divine energy from the Universe. Your very existence in this world is what makes you beautiful, valuable and amazing.
One of the most sensitive and emotional signs, the Moon in Cancer reminds us how important it is, to stay open-hearted and true to our own feelings. To no longer perceive our sensitivity and vulnerability as weakness`s but as strength. How we need to live our lives based on love, kindness and compassion. And how we can change someone’s life with often just a simple act of kindness.
We can use our intuition and emotions to guide us, as the Moon in Cancer is the most intuitive and emotional sign of the zodiac. Where our true feelings have been suppressed, they will now make themselves known. We can only move forward and make changes when we are living our truth from our hearts.
Venus retrograde inspires us to use our power of love to heal ourselves and others starting with self-love.
Only then can we let go of unhealthy attachment and dependencies. Aquarius teaches us about the important balance of attachment and non-attachment. We find inner freedom by letting go of our fixed expectations as to how we think people, life and the outcome SHOULD be. We find freedom and happiness by letting go of expectations and by accepting what is, while at the same time working in the here and now to create a better future.
Mercury retrograde represents a turning point in our way of thinking, helping us see where the answer lies and to speak our truth. It can be a fated time to make positive decisions that will change your life for the better.
And ultimately we are being guided towards a higher conscious state, higher forms of love and happiness in our lives.
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” – Carl Jung
