For the week of June 28th thru July 5th, be sure to read your Rising Sign as well:
Mars enters Leo on Monday, bringing you the fire, the passion and the strength to face even the slipperiest and most treacherous of demons lurking in the background of your life. All those unknowns. All those forces daring to drain you of your life energy; all those unethical dilemmas that you’ve been trying to ignore: They can no longer be ignored or denied. Mars entering the first few degrees of Leo are bringing you an incomparable jolt of strength and energy to vanquish your foes, and reset your engines. But in order to wield Thor’s Hammer, you will first need to be totally honest with yourself and others. The Eclipse on Tuesday is aiming to give you something of a restart, maybe even a rebirth. It’s nothing less than emerging out into the world, like a chicken hatching from its egg. It could even feel like coming home again. Dare to honor and embrace the roots and places and people that have made up the significant events in your life that have led you to the place where you are now, for this is where you need to be.
There is an eclipse on Tuesday that is asking Taurus to step outside of their comfort zone, just enough to speak their truth, but also keep an open mind. Simple changes in perspective could have remarkable consequences. By considering new possibilities generally, you could suddenly become a veritable well of original and creative ideas. And more importantly, you might even be able to discover solutions to problems that were previously plaguing you. Sudden flashes of insight can also lead to changes that can also free up your life in some significant way. Be open to changes in plans, for they could prove to be fortuitous. As Venus enters Cancer next Wednesday, allow it to draw you to seek familiarity and comfort in those things and people that bring you a sense of quietude and belonging. These are the things that will help to center your Heart and increase emotional well-being.
Truth is nothing to fear. It may at times be uncomfortable. But facing your truth can be incredibly freeing and allow you to put things in perspective. Often we will prefer to live with a comfortable fantasy, rather than have to face an uncomfortable truth. However it is only by accepting uncomfortable truths that you will be able to wield the power to make the right decisions. Trying to ignore, or pretend that something is other than what it is will only create more problems. Strength comes from being able to step back and take a more objective view of things. There is no more room for denial. The Eclipse on Tuesday, is trying to steer you towards getting your priorities in order. What are those things in your life, those people that you want to invest your valuable time and money and resources on? And what steps can you take to create greater security in your life, as well as prioritize those things which are most meaningful to you?
Cancer is sensitive to all phases of the Moon, all the more so when the Lunations are also Eclipses! Those Cancers born between June 29th and July 4th will be particularly sensitive to this Eclipse, however all Cancers should take note! This is a North Node attending Eclipse, showing that the Path we are on is leading us through your domain, highlighting all things Cancer: Family, Children, Women, Nurturing, Homeland, Community, Democracy. This is where the real work needs to be done, and this is our way home. For Cancer this is about New Beginnings, a renewed self-awareness; and realigning yourself and your life so that it is a truer, more authentic expression of yourself. You might want to consider reconnecting with and developing a stronger sense of personal identity; and connecting to those things and people that matter the most to you. This Eclipse is asking you to focus on yourself, your needs, what will make you happier, more secure, and bring a sense of belonging. May you achieve a sense of belonging and emotional support through all that you do.
When the Sun is eclipsed, as it will be on Tuesday, it can often feel like we are being drained of our energy. The Sun is our life force, and certainly the heart center for Leo. The Eclipse not only can sap you of your energy, but your very identity so that you begin to wonder who or what you are. Welcome to the insanity of eclipse season. Though in truth, we are all much more than we thing we are, and in the veil of this eclipse it can become evident that you have layers of being that transcend this mortal coil, expanding through time and space itself. Just be with the Eclipse on Tuesday: reflect, release, find a sacred space to connect with what lies beneath the surface. There is a well of inspiration, creative vision and imagination just waiting there to be discovered. Dare to make more time to nurture these and your capacity to wonder. Sometimes eclipses can also represent a demarcation between what was and what is about to be. It’s like you are being reminded that then was then, and now there is something more that is yearning to be.
Sometimes it is easier to live with a familiar untruth, or to remain in denial about a persistent ache or dread, than it is to deal with an uncomfortable truth. That is, until the time comes when it is evident that a certain problem can no longer be ignored. What was previously felt as an irritation, can suddenly feel quite powerful and overwhelming, and is seen as an obstacle that can no longer be denied. There may be some difficult conversations to be had, that could also involve some unresolved ethical dilemmas. What you are being shown, is that there is no longer any room for denial, as the reality of your current circumstances locks horns with what you had hoped and wished for things to be. It’s a reminder that if wishes were fishes we would all cast nets. The Eclipse on Tuesday is trying to reorient you so that you are more in alignment with your inner aspirations. That may mean that something that is drawing you off course may need to end first. A world of possibility awaits you, but first you need to see things (and others) exactly as they are.
The Solar Eclipse on Tuesday is important for Libra, as it aims to get your life and your destiny back on track. This will be all the more so, if in any way you have gone off course, and been distracted from your true goals. If you are already on track, then the Eclipse will act as something of a restart, to help confirm that for you, and re-instill you with a sense of purpose. This may include being willing to let those things go that are no longer serving your purpose, and may in fact be holding you back and preventing you from growing. Some hard truths may need to be faced over the next few weeks. But not all is so dire. Thankfully Venus comes also to ease over any problems, as she ushers in the possibility to create good will, and enhance your standing and reputation in your community. Therefore be relieved that whatever problems may arise, will be eased by the personal and public support you receive.
On Monday, Mars enters fiery Leo, instilling you with the courage and determination to take the reins of your destiny and your future. Be prepared for a bit of a kerfluffle though, for when you bravely announce that the Emperor has no clothes, it may not be well received. This may be necessary though, before you harness your energy in order to accomplish your goals and aims. Situations that you had been merely tolerating or trying to ignore, can no longer be denied at this point. Sometimes it is easier to live with a familiar lie, than it is to face an uncomfortable truth. It is at this point that the familiar lie becomes increasingly uncomfortable. What was previously felt as an irritation or discomfort, can suddenly create a powerful obstacle that needs to be overcome. You’ve got this. The Eclipse on Tuesday can serve to either change your view of reality, or give it confirmation. Either way, you know that the truth can no longer be denied.
Not all truths are easy to see or understand. Especially if these are things that we prefer not to see, or are too close to acknowledge. We can go along pretending that everything is all right, but then there inevitably comes that time when you realize that what was once a vague annoyance, is actually more serious than all that. It is at that point that it can no longer be ignored. And although this may not mean that you actually have to do anything about it, the realization of the truth is enough to shift your perception of reality. Truth can be a powerful tool to cut through any fog. Like a sword of discrimination, bringing the truth out into the open. Part of that truth is also recognizing when something that is proving to be too much of a burden or distraction, is getting in your way, and needs to be addressed. It’s time to clear the decks, in order to make room for newer and better things.
Many a Capricorn has been revamping their lives lately, and in the process unearthing old wounds that need mending and healing. All this focus on your own life; your goals, your self, your needs; can put a damper on relationships. And you will need all the support you can get right now. The Eclipse on Tuesday, may put more of a spotlight on either a specific relationship, or perhaps your feeling about relationships in general. Things that might need work: clarifying mutual expectations of each other; whether or not your needs are being met; and creating more equanimity in relationships. May all fears of rejection be lifted from you; and may you only attract the best people and support systems who will support and care for you in a healthy and fearless way.
Be wary of truth tellers with sharp tongues. They may be right, but they can also be incredibly annoying. There is nothing worse than a know-it-all coming along to burst your bubble. However, it may also be a sign that things are not exactly what you thought they were. And things that you may have known were probably not quite right, will no longer be able to be ignored as a result. Being willing to look at things from another perspective could also be quite illuminating. Especially in light of the Total Eclipse on Tuesday. Eclipses have this way of changing the picture, and this can extend to areas of your life where you normally expect things to be safe and secure. It may be that some new changes are on the horizon that can impact all sorts of things. And this Eclipse is just a harbinger of things to come.
A circumstance at work or in your daily life, may serve as something of a wake up call. For some time you may have been ignoring a situation, even though it was mildly disturbing and lurking in the background of your life. But what you learn, or hear, or see or experience, will make you more aware of the problem to such an extent that it can no longer be ignored. What was previously a bit of sand in your shoe is now an annoying rock, and must be dealt with. Doing so, could prove to be a source of confirmation, strength and even wisdom. This is helpful in light of the powerful Solar Eclipse on Tuesday, which is asking you to focus on those people and things that bring you joy, and make them more of a priority in your life. This can include spending more time with children, loved ones, or rediscovering what it means to wonder and see with the eyes of a child again. Use the powerful energy of the Eclipse to make the commitment to make more time for pleasure, love, fun and joy.
