Hi, Everyone If you are craving a little excitement with your coffee, this is a week and month that will not disappoint!  The Total Solar Eclipse occurs on July 2, 2019 at 10 degrees and 37 minutes of Cancer at 3:16 pm EDT.  This brings in a whole new story of what you want to initiate and nurture in your life. 

The Solar Eclipse occurs when the Sun is obscured by the moon.  This is a highly powerful New Moon, and it is one where you want to initiate new things in your life and set new intentions!  The moon in Cancer is in its domicile.  This makes it a very manifesting New Moon Eclipse!  Cancer is a very sensitive Cardinal water sign, so you can feel the emotions you want to feel in order to invoke change. 

The Total Solar Eclipse occurs when the Sun and Moon are conjunct the Nodes of fate in a close orb.  In This Solar Eclipse chart, the North Node is at 17 degrees of Cancer, so it is right on this potent Solar Eclipse and invites you to go towards the new moon and take care of self.  Cancer themes are very prevalent: home, family, emotional foundation, security, and needs.  Do something that makes you happy and gives you comfort. 

Eclipses are like wild cards, and they are highly unpredictable.  They can bring instant change, endings, beginnings,  realization, and highly charged energy.  Eclipses are revealing, and they give us insights into things we never saw before.  They can be quite jarring and open our eyes to things in sudden and extreme ways; but, they can bring incredible new opportunities and open doors out-of-the-blue. 

Whether or not you have planets or angles in Cancer/Capricorn, you will feel the energy in some area of your chart.  If you know your time of birth, there are free sites like Astro.com and Cafe Astrology, where you can see where this New Moon Eclipse falls in your chart.  That will give you a theme of where you want to initiate change and begin a new chapter. If you have planets between 7 and 14 degrees of the Cardinal signs, you will feel it the most: Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.  No matter what, this is a Total Solar Eclipse, and you will feel  the pulse of change and fated events

This Solar Eclipse in Cancer falls in the 9th house of hopes, beliefs, press, media, education, travel, education, and optimism.  We have all been dealing strongly with The South Node, Saturn, and Pluto transiting in Capricorn, which insists we take accountability in areas where we may feel held back or discouraged.  This is a lineup, which will not relent.  Like it or not, there are karmic choices, decisions, and responsibilities you have to take in order to glean the lessons of July’s eclipses. 

The great thing is that this Eclipse chart has a very powerful energy for creating powerful new change. The New Moon is in its own sign of Cancer, which makes it really powerful. With the North Node of destiny on the Sun and the Moon in Cancer, you are being encouraged to open yourself to the light and begin new things in your life. What do you want to create?  

The Ninth House is ruled by Jupiter, which is currently squaring Neptune and saying what do you want to manifest in your life?  What are your dreams?  Neptune in Pisces forms a beautiful trine to The North Node in Cancer in the Solar Eclipse chart.  You can manifest fated connections, dreams, and opportunities.  Creativity and dreams run high, as do emotions.  

Jupiter is currently in its home sign of Sagittarius, where it expands, educates, and brings opportunity through December 3, 2019. Jupiter is the vision.  Neptune is in its home sign of Pisces, where it connects to the dream and fantasy, through January of 2026. Neptune is the dream.  These two have not squared each other in their home signs since 1852 and 1853.  Use this to magnetize the vision and dream during times of heavy karmic truths with the Capricorn lineup also strong in the background.

In this Solar Eclipse chart, Saturn is only seven minutes from being exactly conjunct the South Node of Karma in Capricorn; they are both only 5 degrees from Pluto in Capricorn. Saturn represents your karmic lessons, structures, and responsibilities.  Saturn’s energy is emphasized with the South Node of fate, and there might be things you are releasing in order to initiate the New Moon’s calling.  Pluto represents what you need to transform and let go.

There are beliefs, people, or patterns that no longer serve you.  Construction, reconstruction, building, and rebuilding.  Saturn is in review, and so are you.  Have you evaded that lesson in the corner?  Get ready. 

The Solar Eclipse chart has Scorpio rising, and Uranus in Taurus is right on the angle of relationships.  A  lot of sudden endings, beginnings, and insights with partnerships and partnering with self.  Uranus represents change and excitement!  It is powerfully placed in this New Moon chart.

Saturn and The South Node of Karma form a facilitating sextile to Neptune.  This is an aspect of opportunity, and it helps you to structure the dream.  Keep focused on that dream with this powerful Eclipse! 

There are currently several planets retrograde, so this denotes a lot of reflection and review: Jupiter, the planet of abundance; Saturn, the planet of control; Pluto, the planet of power; Neptune, the planet of dreams.  Review on the lessons and events that occurred in January during the Eclipse season in Capricorn with a partial Solar Eclipse on January 5, 2019 that set the tone for the year with the upcoming Capricorn convergence. How can you grow from those lessons?  This is an easier Eclipse because it is a North Node Eclipses that says to go ahead.  

Mercury is also about to station retrograde on July 7, 2019 at 4 degrees of Leo and will station direct on August 2, 2019 at 23 degrees of Cancer. Mercury retrograde looks backwards and can sometimes challenge communication and transportation.  However, it also says to reflect on what makes your heart shine (Leo).   

Mars changes signs and enters Leo on July 1, 2019, where it will tour through August 19, 2019. Mars in Leo is a lot more fun and playful than it was in Cancer and gives some momentum and courage. Mars and Mercury meet up to jump start this Eclipse extravaganza and are conjunct in the Solar Eclipse chart in early degrees of Leo.

It is also an excellent day to do The Law of Abundance. Take a blank check and date it for July 2, 2019.
