New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Cancer: Time To Go Within
“Who looks outside, dreams.
Who looks inside, awakens”
– Carl Jung
We will experience a powerful Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Cancer with an opposition to Pluto on July 12th. What makes it so powerful you ask? It is how the Solar Eclipse and the New Moon is communicating and where they are positioned with Pluto. We will have feelings of inner discontent, uncertainty and insecurity. We will be forced to face our inner demons making this aspect of the Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Cancer with Pluto a way to help us understand our shadow-self.
The Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Cancer dancing with Pluto will take us spinning down into the underworld, bringing forth rebirth and transformation. The New Moon with its forces moving under the surface will reveal that which is hidden. This planetary order is going to be liberating, intended to reveal truths that many of us will not be or are not ready to confront, however, this dance will change our lives for the better.
This Solar Eclipse, New Moon, and Pluto energy are best utilized for meditating and going within our darkness to truthfully see what is happening and how to accept accountability to why it is happening the way it is. Pluto will encourage us to face our fears and work on what is holding us back from having a successful career, home or relationship. Oddly enough, the dark can be our most trusted ally, it’s in emptiness that we can see life in a new ‘light’ – our inner light. It’s from the void that new beginnings can occur. The New Moon and Pluto’s job during this time is to show us what is hidden, to remove the mask of illusion and set aside our egos so that we can finally see our disruptive patterns that keep us from having the life we truly desire. Pluto will give us the possibility of changing ourselves into what we never were before, hence a rebirth, a transformation to who we truly are. The eclipse will challenge us to turn our inner world upside down like the Hanged Man in the Tarot to see our lives in a different perspective, this will, in turn, help us see where new beginnings can take place.
Eclipses are measured as a period of karmic and global re-adjustment. The Cancer Solar Eclipse is about your free will, the undetermined and creating new possibilities for the future. The Cancer Solar Eclipse opposite Pluto invites you to embark into the unknown. Do not be afraid or resist traveling within your underworld, it is going to be the catalyst to bring forth your new life.
Those that have planets or angles between 19 degrees to 21 degrees in Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, will be most affected.
