Blessed New Moon in Cancer every one. We are at a new cycle, so it’s time to plant son seeds.
This new moon will be accompanied by a total solar eclipse all taking place in Cancer. So what does this mean physically?
Well this new moon will be similar to a real new moon, as the moon will pass between the Earth and Sun; except the solar eclipse will bring about a stronger energy because the moon will in fact darken the sun. we experience day, night, and day within mins. And this one will be a total solar eclipse meaning the moon will completely cover the sun, or will darken the sun, blocking our view. Remember that new moon represent a new moon cycle, and the energy will last 4 weeks, while the energy of the solar eclipse will last about 6 months.
When I look at our celestial events, I often wonder what our ancient ancestors thought of this, and how they viewed it. Today many of us are in awe of it. We want to get out and experience the energy. We want to see it happen, to experience this magnificent event between our sun and moon. But would it surprise you to know that in fact the ancients would hide in their homes or other dwellings to not be in its direct visibility. They felt it was a time when the veil between the worlds were very thin, and They actually saw them as a feared astrological/astronomical events. To them it was very unsettling as they witnessed this not truly knowing what was going on. To them, solar eclipses they felt it was a change of power.
The moon and sun meeting bring us many opportunities, and can be a fresh start for many..one that will last into the future. It is a good time to leave behind bad habits, leave behind toxic things in your life. It gives you an opportunity to create your future in new inventive ways. But for our ancients, this was something to not be witnessed.
Now these energies can be felt 6 mos after the eclipse takes place. So, this solar eclipse will be connecting us to the last solar eclipse, which was a partial one, that took place on January 6th of this year. It was from Northeast Asia and the north pacific at 8:42pm est, 5:42 pacific time. This placement was at 15 degrees of Capricorn.
Now for this one, which is a total eclipse, it will take place at 3:16 pm est, 12:16pm cst, and 8:16pm UK time. It will be at 10 degrees and 37 seconds, so I am going to round that up to 11 degrees of Cancer. This is totally different energy. This energy is connecting us to our North node at 17 degrees Cancer and its opposition with the south node at 17 degrees of Capricorn. These are totally different energies, as they represent different energies. Capricorn is earth, Cancer is water. Law and order and nurturing mother energy. Power versus emotion…and we are looking for the harmony within it; acknowledging the unconditional love with the need of boundaries which enable us to protect that which we love. During my meditation with this reading, I was shown the process that in order to experience the energy of the Great Goddess, you must first pass through the gates of the Great God.
So this is showing us that there is a need of boundaries so that ALL are protected.
So, in essence Capricorn is our work and cancer is home.
Cancer is a cardinal sign, as it is the beginning of a new season. So this is us tapping into our feelings, our emotions, that we have within our heart, it is going within personally. This is an inward motion, it is our emotional body. This is the energy of beginning anew, starting something new that is more on our inner emotional Self. With the north node in Cancer as well, so this is what we are moving toward. The moon is our emotional self, it is our daily needs and in Cancer (the moons home placement) this is highlighting the feeling of coming home, your sanctuary. This could manifest itself into something that we have been holding in emotionally for a long while coming to the surface.
This is a change to a place that you are more comfortable, something that is emotionally comfortable and satisfying. And with it the opposite Capricorn, we are experiencing a need to satisfy what is necessary and needed in your life, for your emotional and physical happiness with boundaries…meaning protecting that which is sacred unto you.
This energy will have us looking at what is necessary and needed in your life. With our south node in Capricorn, we are releasing an old pattern of how we viewed this as well. This changing of the tides can bring us a new meaning of our needs, even us defining our life differently, one that is in more harmony of who we are. This does connect us to our ancestors, you could be bringing back the old ways of your ancestors. For example, you may be in a job that your parent was in…and their parents and so on. Or maybe you live in your hometown where your family is at, and it is expected for you to stay there and your not happy. This unhappiness within you has maybe made you bitter, resentful…and this emotional turmoil could be brought to the surface at this time. This eclipse/new moon energy is one of listening to your intuition and trusting our Self. This energy can also have us looking into our ancestors ways, maybe going back to what our ancestors did; their gifts and skills. Eclipses are BIG change, and this time represents a grand cycle ending. This change will be on of honoring what we feel is right for us, it is following our personal nature. Saturn is setting in Capricorn as well and will form a square with the new moon/solar eclipse, along with the South Node, will remind us that life happens in a process as well. And while we may want to jump forward quickly, we have to allow the path to unfold before us. We cant rush forward half cocked, there is a certain process that will need to take place

Eclipses say “the king must die”. It is an ending of one ruling and a beginning of another.
I wish you all a blessed New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Cancer. Emotions will be high…ground, ground, ground!
