On June 20th/21st, as the Sun, which represents our: ego, vitality and life force enters the sign of Cancer, the moon also enters the tender sign of the crab. This day also marks the beginning of Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. Solstice days are powerhouses, that signify: intensity, change and sacred rituals. This is not just any regular ol new moon, but an Annual Solar Eclipse at the 0 degree mark in Cancer. Solar Eclipses are new moons on steroids and herald massive: new beginnings, initiation and fresh starts. All eclipses bring surprises, curve balls and sudden events. Solar Eclipses, unlike Lunar Eclipses are formed when the moon passes between the sun and the earth, temporarily obscuring the sun. Cancer, the 4th zodiac sign, is all about: home, family, tenderness, emotional foundations and your roots. This Eclipse is aligning with the North Node, which is currently at the last degree of Gemini. The North Node is: where we are headed, destiny and the unknown.
The Annular Solar Eclipse in Cancer is here to awaken your ability to find your center and sense of emotional security. No other sign is as concerned with safety and security like a sensitive and loving crab. At the critical anaretic degree of zero, this Solar Eclipse is a brand new energy of comfort and finding your home. This Solar Eclipse in Cancer will ask you to reach to the depths of your emotions and re-spark an inner calm of nurturing and softness. In a world where we are constantly being bombarded by sadness and sorrow, this Eclipse wants you to be the light and tenderness that this world so needs.
Despite our current outer circumstances of uncertainty and chaos, this Solar Eclipse wants you to reclaim what true emotional support and love mean in your life. There will be an ushering in of the divine feminine energies with this Eclipse, and this applies to both women and men. We are all being asked to surrender to our hearts and begin new projects and plans connected to what makes us feel nourished and emotionally fulfilled. The lesson here is we don’t need outer circumstances to make us feel safe. This is the RISE of our inner security, built on the connection to our soul. This is a very private process but a very human need we all share. The Solar Eclipse in Cancer will ask us to be gentle with ourselves and others. Just imagine what we could accomplish in this mixed up world if we all stood there with another. Deep childhood wounds and sense of belonging are themes with this Solar Eclipse in Cancer. Divine wants us to come back home to ourselves and in turn, allow the world to come back home to being nourished and loved.
The last time we had a Solar Eclipse at 0 degrees of Cancer, was on June 21, 2001 right before 9/11. As mentioned, eclipses bring in curve balls and unexpected events. This current Solar Eclipse will echo similar themes and weave us together through our collective pain,as well as our collective light. The world cannot survive on dominance and control. We have all seen that very clearly. As a fellow Cancer moon myself( although born on a full moon) our mission is to awaken divine motherly love within ourselves and with others.
This Solar Eclipse will ask that you begin to honor and respect your sensitive and vulnerable sides. True humility is born from exposure of your deepest wounding. Until we all recognize and acknowledge this, our world will continue to be distorted with dominance and control. There is a real opportunity with this Solar Eclipse to re-write what emotional understanding and intelligence represents in society. No other sign can bring up the feels like Cancer. Maybe it’s time we embrace and love our emotions? What would the world look like if everyone could express their deepest feelings and not be ridiculed or made wrong? Perhaps, we could all come to understand how much we really are truly similar and where separation is an illusion.
The Annular Solar Eclipse in Cancer is here to bring fresh energy to the deepest parts of your soul. As the world goes bonkers, remember there is always a place within yourself where love, support and tenderness lies. If we all could learn to access this sacred place, just imagine what could happen? We might actually be able to acknowledge and heal our wounds, instead of trying to repress and control them. This Solar Eclipse in Cancer wants you and the world to begin to love and nurture yourself like you never have done before. Feel all the feels and be honest with yourself and those around you. It is ok to have emotions and in order for this world to turn around to the light, this will need to be recognized and owned. The Solar Eclipse in Cancer asks you to be brave and honor your true authentic self. We are all sensitive people, as my fav songwriter wrote. Now is the time for healing on this planet. Now is the time for true vulnerability and tenderness to be more important than fear.
The Annular Solar Eclipse in Cancer asks you to be still and quiet. Place your hand on your heart and take a deep breath. Repeat, ” I am loved, I am enough, I am safe.” She is here to bring: massive new beginnings around your emotional foundation, true authenticity built on love and tenderness and the return back to your beautiful and magnificent heart. We will be under the effects of the Solar Eclipse in Cancer for the next 2 weeks until the Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn on July 4/5th. If you have any inner planets or points( Sun, Moon, AC, IC, DC, MC) in the late degrees of Gemini( 27-29) or early degrees of Cancer( 0-2) then this Eclipse will be most powerful for you. You can see the effects of this eclipse for the next 6 months- 1 year.
