This June 21st Solstice elemental turning point is amplified by a Solar eclipse at 0 Cancer delivering not only a change in the season but a seismic shift. Every 19 years the eclipses fall on or very near the same degrees and sign placement and the last one at this exact degree was the eclipse that preceded 9/11. It’s flagging up one of those hinge points in history that in hindsight become Before and After markers in time and given that the US is now starting its first karmic Pluto Return since the Founding Fathers and this eclipse falls on the US Venus, the next 6 months will bring a series of jarring dislocations.
This is the 2nd in a series of 3 eclipses and a coronal Solar Eclipse at 0 degrees Cancer World Axis in a potent Grand Cardinal Cross of light bridges, impacting any planets or points in your birth chart between 25 – 30 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces and 0 – 5 degrees of the Cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.
It is opposite the Galactic Centre – Source – denoting a time of strong karma and collective shifts. The South Node of Fate – what you must leave behind so you can grow – is conjunct the karmic Galactic Centre – so, ready or not, the political becomes personal with changes arriving right at your front door. Eclipses bring forward events or decisions that you assumed were months or years away. Plans change in a blink of an eye. There is a feeling of life moving very rapidly – it’s life on fast-forward accelerating towards the future.
The powerful geophysical shock window extends from the 14th – 28th June. Sandwiched into the June 4 – July 22 Mercury Max cycle, this looks like a strong storm and seismic signal. The shadow moves across Africa, Asia and culminates in China. Those border conflicts between China and India and North and South Korea have the potential to escalate in the next 6 months.
The energy field is turbulent with Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto all retrograde; Neptune turning backwards on June 23rd, Venus turning direct on June 25th before Mars enters his own sign of Aries on June 27th, activating the sensitive World Axis. The warrior planet normally spends 6 weeks in each sign but will cross backwards and forwards through Aries until January 7th 2021- 6 months instead of 6 weeks! Another reason to predict volatility on the world stage.
Cancer symbolises the homeland so the theme of belonging/not belonging is very strong. As the eclipse effect ripples through the next 6 months, expect stronger more insistent demands from the collective for true equality along with losses /crashes in housing and financial markets.
This 0 Cancer solar eclipse is an energy Influx on steroids, accelerating the process of changing consciousness and deleting the past in an instant. It is a reminder of impermanence – you “know” in your head that everything changes second by second but the sudden disappearance of the Light, the occulting, the overshadowing, the re-booting of what used to be your life, brings it home and make it starkly real. People leave, jobs end, passions fade, dreams disappear to make room for the new. If/when they do, let them go.
Don’t be too quick to pronounce an eclipse good or bad. All eclipses have a second act and this one is followed by a lunar eclipse on July 5th.
New! In July your body, your energy field and your emotions are going to be re-set and re-booted all over again as the 3rd Eclipse brings a reprise of the January 12 Saturn /Pluto Conjunction: sign up to my July 2020 5D Report: “High Heart Online” for ways through the emerging pathways: www.hareinthemoonastrology.co.uk
The Chandra Symbol for the Solar Eclipse CANCER 1:
A Potter at Work.
“You need to be prepared for spirit to do its great work here. And all the steps and stages, all the learning and growth are already part of a guided dance, instrumentally choreographed by those who know. This energy wants a return to what is natural, a restoring of ancient timeless ways. It seeks to manifest a remembrance and a rededication. There is this cosmic beholding power, a witnessing intelligence. The guidance is to join forces with the whole of humanity. Then what wants to come through will be popular, obvious, clear, the next place to go” Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
Aries Weekly Forecast: June 21-28, 2020
Sunday’s New Moon eclipse right at the base of your chart has the potential to free you from some persistent issues you’ve been dealing with since childhood. It might be that someone leaves or someone from the past returns. It may take the form of a bout of nostalgia or homesickness. You might suddenly get bored with keeping yourself small just because someone years ago put a label round your neck. However it plays out, find the somatic emotional healing you need by releasing untruths about who you are, by being kind and gentle with yourself and by letting anything or anyone who needs to leave depart gracefully. As your personal planet Mars returns to Aries on Friday 27th, to stay in your sign not for the usual 6 weeks but for 6 months(!) this will be a personal initiation into reclaiming your own life.
Have faith that all is well.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: June 21-28, 2020
This is a time when everything is up for grabs and nothing is nailed down and, much to your surprise, you’re thriving on it. Sunday’s New Moon eclipse puts all your communications and connections on steroids. Events may change around you -someone may leave or a family member delivers exciting news, but the most important shift is in your thinking. This is a cosmic nudge to stop keeping yourself small and create a much larger world for yourself. On June 25th, your personal planet Venus turns forward again in Gemini and you re-prioritise what’s worth doing, worth having or worth investing in. With awakener Uranus in Taurus cattle prodding you out of your old comfort zone, it’s time for you to access that innate sense of deep grounded spirituality and surprise us all with your insights, truths and ideas.
Radical root and branch inner shifts.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: June 21-28, 2020
Sunday’s New Moon eclipse points to changes in your finances. This is the angle of earned income so events may re-arrange themselves around you creating a knock- on effect in your own life. You’ll definitely notice just how much your values have changed in the last 40 days of Venus being retrograde and start to re-align your priorities. One source of income may dry up and if it does, close the door gracefully. Channel the potent eclipse energy into coming up with ideas for multiple income streams so that you are not investing everything into one single project. Don’t reject off the wall ideas out of hand-this is about experimenting not nailing down a step by step plan. Fortunately, on June 27th, energy planet Mars moves into your angle of alliances, groups and goals to stay not for his usual 6 weeks but for 6 months! This means that there are going to be many gathering places-virtual or in real life-to showcase your services and get the word out.
Sidestep perfectionism and just do it!
Cancer Weekly Forecast: June 21-28, 2020
The solar eclipse on Sunday ‘s Solstice marks a before and after moment for you personally as a solar Cancerian and also for the collective. Your sign is ruled by the Moon and eclipses are Sun/Moon shut downs and re-boots. This one is rare-a free “Pass Go” card from the cosmos to re-invent yourself as you were before other people told you who you should be. The liberating effect is doubled by Mars-planet of libido/life force- arriving at the pinnacle of your chart on June 27th to stay for 6 months instead of the usual 6 weeks! It’s time to allow your talents, skills, qualities and life experience out to play and let them speak for themselves. Not to impress other people but to discover what you really want and how you really want to live your one “wild and precious life”, to quote the wonderful Mary Oliver.
Deleting all the Shoulds, Musts and Oughts.
Leo Weekly Forecast: June 21-28, 2020
For you as a Leo, Sunday’s Solstice eclipse is asking you to turn your attention inwards and to get right up to date with yourself. As Venus turns forward again on Tuesday, you’ll begin to notice that while you weren’t looking, many of your old goals and dreams have changed beyond recognition in the last 6 weeks. What used to be important no longer has traction. The Cancer eclipse is a significant emotional re-set and from now on, only what is meaningful will be worth investing your love, time and energy into. Your watchwords are meaning, growth and service and as Mars activates your 9th House you become restless, in need of a quest or great adventure. Let yourself explore those wide horizons beyond the walls of your comfort zone.
To boldly go…..
Virgo Weekly Forecast: June 21-28, 2020
A rare New Moon coronal eclipse right on Sunday’s Solstice Point has “Change” tattooed right across it. Not only is the season shifting but so are the planets as Neptune joins Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter and Mercury in retrograde just as Venus turns forward. Frame it as an “ anything might happen and probably will” moment and give yourself a free cosmic pass to experiment. Your creativity and productivity are at an all time high and it’s important to harness the energy rather than let it dissipate. Venus in your 10th House of public visibility and influence has been updating your hopes and dreams over the last 6 weeks and now ‘s your chance to sit down and re-prioritise your plans and projects. You have many more options than you ever dreamt of at the beginning of 2020-don’t let them slip by.
Keep asking yourself:” Does this take me nearer to or further away from what I really want?”
Libra Weekly Forecast: June 21-28, 2020
Something is coming to a definite end. The New Moon Solar eclipse right on the Solstice gateway on June 21st is major pause then reboot of your career angle. Don’t expect instant clarity as not only is Neptune turning retrograde but your personal planet Venus is also changing direction, turning forward again. Not to mention planet of libido/life force Mars entering your opposite sign of Aries to stay for an entire 6 months. Mercury’s retrograde is clouding issues and creating communication glitches. Relationships of all kinds will be feistier than usual, challenging you to re-think your approach and to find better ways of influencing others by building rapport. If your personal partnership has lost its spark, now’s the time to re-kindle the flames. The key issue in both your personal and your professional life is about setting and maintaining stronger boundaries.
Expanding your tribes.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: June 21-28, 2020
Happily for you as a Scorpio, the June 21st Solstice eclipse is at a kind angle to your Sun and in fellow Water sign Cancer. It’s going to be a big moment for everyone with its repercussions rippling out for the next 6 months and beyond. The energy field is seismic and volatile with several planets changing sign or direction at the same time. Venus moves forward just as your personal planet Mars enters fiery Aries to stay for an unprecedented 6 months instead of 6 weeks. Mars heats up here, running amok and out of control so keep dousing the flames. This eclipse brings an ending or completion to a form of study or teaching and learning. It’s time to follow the trail of something that’s intrigued you for a long time but that you’d left on the back burner. It’s going to be a busy time for you so make sure that whatever you invest yourself in is meaningful and makes a difference.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: June 21-28, 2020
The Solstice New Moon eclipse is going to be one for the memory books for everyone on the planet when anything could happen. For you, it fast forwards something connected with your finances, your resources and your assets, probably those held with someone else. If you thought you had time to budget or plan, too late. It’s also an ending and new beginning of some sort where your security is concerned. You could be moving home or saving for the first time or building a pension. Keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde in this same part of your life and double and triple check the bottom line. Be alert for fake transactions or scammers. Happily, Venus turns forward again on June 25th, allowing you to re-kindle your closest relationship after 6 weeks of challenge or strain.
No big financial decisions until after the next eclipse on July 5th
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: June 21-28, 2020
Things are going to change at lightning speed this week, Capricorn, as a rare New Moon eclipse on the Solstice pauses then re-boots relationships of all kinds. Remind yourself that the ball is in the other person’s court-whether personally or professionally-and take a conciliatory approach. On June 27th, warrior Mars enters fiery Aries your angle of family, roots and home for an unprecedented 6 month stay! Expect some clashes but sidestep all out warfare. With Mercury retrograde in Cancer with the wild card eclipse, communications are ripe for glitches, crossed wires and misunderstandings. Keep in mind that the 3rd pass of Jupiter/Pluto in Capricorn is only 9 days away and that’s when you can restore the balance of power.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: June 21-28, 2020
All eclipses are unpredictable cosmic wild cards bringing change out of the blue and the Solstice eclipse on Sunday 21st is on steroids. Emotions will be running high all this week and into next, so tread extra sensitively with other people’s feelings. Keep irritability, impatience or anger in check from June 27th when warrior Mars moves into Aries and fires up your communication zone. You may think you’re making a reasonable request but it may feel like more like a demand. The eclipse pause button followed by a re-boot is happening in your 6th House of wellbeing and daily routines. Now is the time to schedule a health check up, to permanently drop toxic habits and to make your emotional wellbeing your main priority. Keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde, so if an old ailment or physical condition flares up again, deal with it as quickly as possible.
Break free from old unhelpful habits that have crystallised into stone.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: June 21-28, 2020
A rare New Moon eclipse right on the June 21st Solstice is going to prove a game changer for just about everyone in the coming 6 months and that includes you. Fortunately, it’s at a kind angle to your Sun and also in compatible Water sign Cancer. Not so fortunately, Messenger Mercury happens to be retrograde also in this part of your chart. Then factor in Venus turning forward on June 25th and Mars entering Aries on the 27th to understand just how transformative this passage will be. For you, changes will manifest in connection with your home and family and also your creativity and self-expression. Something is coming to an end and something new is beginning. It could be a child leaving home or the birth of a baby; a house move or a re-design; the launch of a book, a blog or a podcast. However it plays out, keep choosing the path that takes you nearer and nearer to re-inventing your work/life balance.
Acting in your own highest interests.
