For All Signs: On July 2, 2019, at 3:16 pm EDT our globe will experience a total solar eclipse in the sign of Cancer. It will be best viewed in South America. In ancient times eclipses were believed frightening, heralding negative omens, especially in regions of their visibility. Contemporary astrologers have the benefit of a long history and a broader world view. We perceive eclipse seasons as periods that relieve critical mass. For many of us this month there will be an experience of manifestation or illumination about situations that have been long in the making. It is a time to look upon the facts but not all of those facts are frightening or negative. Sometimes people experience positive results of past effort during eclipse periods. The Cancerian eclipses will complete in approximately 18 months.
Aries: The eclipse will focus a certain amount of intensity in the arenas of career (work in the world) and also home, hearth and family and security. You will stretch your worldly boundaries in the next 18 months to serve a new group people. Family relationships will include one loss and one gain. This includes pets.
Taurus: During this new 18 month series of eclipses you will be learning to value yourself in new ways. Alongside of that comes education in the management of money and other resources, such as time and energy. There will be less assistance from others in these arenas, but you are creating these resources for yourself.
Gemini: The accent of this eclipse cycle will be on travel, education, care of vehicles and relationships to siblings, roommates, neighbors, or others who daily traverse your life. Habit patterns of thought will be brought to consciousness so negative thinking can be corrected. You will be introduced to new practical life skills.
Cancer: (June 20 – July 21) Your sense of personal identity becomes the subject under consideration. Who are you becoming and who do you need to be? How do you wish to define yourself before the world? You will be learning what is required for you to hold onto your identity while simultaneously maintaining a personally rewarding relationship.
Leo the Lion: The new series of eclipses emphasize your need to create order, both internally and externally. The development of your projects will call upon you to develop faith in your deepest self. Bringing order out of chaos is done on both the inner and outer levels simultaneously, so while you organized files you will be also organizing your mind.
Virgo: The new eclipse season will be opening your mind and heart to accept a larger circle of friends. You may become a leader or a strong supporter of a community network that has shared ideals. Certainly you will continue to have the friendships you have built in the past. However, your attention may be focused on goals greater than your personal interests.
Libra: Matters concerning your career, family and property will be accented for the next 18 months. Old problems in relationships, even with the deceased, will surface for cleansing and healing. A new family member may enter the scene, or you may begin to spend more time with family in general.
Scorpio: Legal, ethical or educational issues will be emphasized by the new 18 month series of eclipses. Travel will be punctuated, whether it via body, mind, or spirit. Exposure to those of different backgrounds or cultures opens your heart and expands your philosophy. A challenge concerning siblings, roommates, or neighbors may press you to seek a Higher Road.
Sagittarius: This new eclipse pattern will emphasize issues of sexuality, intimacy, and material accumulation. Reorganization of debt, investments and your estate may be in progress. You may become more conscious than usual about existential matters related to life, death, and what is on “the other side” of normal, waking consciousness.
Capricorn: The eclipses of this new 18 month series will draw your attention to your partnerships. Patterns from your childhood history needed to be uncovered, repaired or removed in order to allow your growth into a more mature relationship. Psychotherapy may be truly helpful. You may experience a crisis of consciousness at this time.
Aquarius: This new series of eclipses will pressure you to concentrate on improvement of work -related relationships and health maintenance. Diet, exercise and improvement of physical regimen are imperative. Honing your management systems in personal and work arenas is necessary to create order in your daily work routine.
Pisces: The eclipse pattern emphasizes your progeny or other personally creative births. Romantic ventures will be intensely emotional and self-revealing. You will also learn a few lessons in discernment concerning friendships and associations that no longer serve you well.
