Here it is, the solar eclipse of July 2019, in the feeling, being, healing, and nurturing sign of Cancer. Get close to it. How do you feel? What great lessons are being stirred by events? How do they connect with the events of July 2018? And how about 2010? The Cancer-Capricorn eclipse series is bringing about great soul shifts, especially for those with Libra-Aries or Cancer-Capricorn nodes. Cancer, you softness is brutal to take. My tender broken heart can hardly hold you above the engulfing waters, but Capricorn’s back bone and maturity is willing to be a spine and feet for you. Glorious being. Just be, Cancer whispers silently in the roll of waves. Standing in ocean there is a soft vast embrace. Stand upright or however you need to - to weather any storm. Trust your back. Let the gentle stirrings of deep personal knowing touch and awaken you. Where there is unhealthy patterning zero in on it. Discover neglected needs, honor, and begin anew. We can take care of one another but not at the expense of ourselves. We need to be more closely with ourselves and then with others. Vulnerability - practice allowing it. Accountability and integrity, serve it for breakfast. Chew the reality that this is your precious life. We have only this — may it be nourishing, feminine, and awake. The eclipse season rolls in perhaps like changing tides. Notice endings and beginnings. Make aspirations, choose health, support sensation in your heart — and access to love and magic. Here we are learning to honor the feminine/masculine, yin/yang within and around us. May we release and embody emotionally responsive and sage bodies, awakening to our lives as they are. Nurture, hold, be unwavering in your commitments. We need containers to allow the profundity of this softness to breathe. And softness to nurture the container of ourselves. Remember confidence and the benefits of solitude as well as intimate and familial connections of all kinds. We are transforming. This series of eclipses is ushering along our soul paths. Observe and look out for wake up calls. Wake to dream. Grow up.
The start of 2019 initiates with a powerful New Moon, and the first of five eclipses this year. Five major planetary bodies are in Capricorn and Uranus goes direct January 6th. Imagine the long-term, we are steering our way forward. As we get real about next steps, we may also feel a sense of liberation and suddenly arising forward motion in whatever area of our chart Aries occupies. While Capricorn’s influence urges we lay ground for the future, we can also anticipate sudden victories, unexpected insight, and true bravery to greet what is unknown and yet to come. Capricorn calls we orient our lives and the way we spend time from the deepest soulful integrity. We need be mindful of empty ambition or taking on societal expectations and values. Uranus going direct in Aries emphasizes the discovery of authenticity in the face of traditional expectations. May the work you do, the boundaries and commitments you set for yourself embody your deepest wisdom and maturity. May you never comply with a projection of external pressure that is not aligned with the connectedness of your heart. May we open to the softness and care of the North Node in Cancer, to listen for a more heart-centered or soul-centered way through our lives. As we learn to nourish and care for our unspoken dreams and sensations, we teach ourselves to inhabit our lives as they are. In this way, the true wisdom of Capricorn can arise; that being the steadiness and voice of a mountain, the aloneness that seeks to build a world in which others can live with deep content and presence. May we discover deep relaxation as we work, as we apply ourselves to our responsibilities. After a profoundly transformative year in 2018, during which we faced deep unconscious and shadow material, we are dreaming of a more uplifted future (Jupiter Neptune square). We need stay true Capricorn’s ability to maneuver reality, discipline, patience, boundaries, commitments, and goals. Set your long-term wants while you dream, as your heart mends, and as we encounter the uncertainty that will surprise you. Set goals this month, and make a schedule. But mostly, ensure what you are painting promises your heart a true home.
