      JULY 12TH 2018 ASTROLOGY & ENERGY: NEW MOON + SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER

      JULY 12TH 2018 ASTROLOGY & ENERGY: NEW MOON + SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER

      Eclipse season begins today with a New Moon and partial solar eclipse in Cancer! This eclipse is the first of three this summer, with the following two coming July 27th and August 11th. Solar eclipses are always a time of change, shaking and waking up parts of your life that have been stagnant, whether you’re ready and expecting it or not! These powerful lunations will all be dancing on the axis of Cancer-Capricorn, drawing our attention to issues like: dependency vs. self-sufficiency, emotion vs. reality, comfort vs. responsibility, or mother vs. father. Maybe it brings up issues with our own parents, or the way we self-parent ourselves as adults.

      Cancer (ruled by the beautiful and benevolent Moon) represents the mothering, nurturing side of our personalities, while Capricorn (ruled by stern and strict Saturn) represents the fathering, disciplining side. Cancer values emotional safety and comfort above all else, doing whatever it takes to make us feel OK, often using patterns and behaviors that have worked in the past to relieve emotional discomfort. Capricorn values self-sufficiency more than vulnerability, and would rather show us how to be stronger and more skilled in order to take better care of ourselves in the future. These two contrasting approaches compliment one another when in balance, but it’s very hard to be completely balanced where emotion vs. pragmatism is concerned! The best we can do, at this juncture, is to try to treat ourselves lovingly while keeping the bigger picture in mind—recognizing that there can be no true nurturing without discipline, and that our goals and ambitions do also need to be tempered with self-care.

      At this New Moon, we are guided to a rebirth of some kind. We are asked to honor the changes that have taken place within us over the past few years of cosmic and earthly upheaval, and to reassess who we are now and what we truly want for our lives at this point. Is it time to stop walking a path that we’ve been on for a long time that no longer serves us? Is it time to release habits that once brought us comfort but have outlived their usefulness? If you've been neglecting an aspect of your life, you can expect it to come to the surface during this eclipse cycle. . . so whatever pops up, you're being called to consider it in this context. As this is just the first of the Cancer Eclipses, the energy and exploration that we begin to experience now is going to continue to grow and develop over the next couple of months, leading us to reach new heights and learn new things. Just as the crab outgrows its shell, we, too, are in the process of shedding an old way of being and stepping forward into a more mindful, healthy, and positive future.
