JUNE 20, 2020

Dear Friends,

Happy Father's day!  A New Moon Solar Eclipse on the Summer Solstice. The sign Cancer. The longest day to the year. More light than dark. There is a lot of speculation about this. A powerful shift. Well, yes indeed! We are already in it. The point will be made in no uncertain terms. It is time for us to appreciate where we came from and to protect where we are. Where do you belong?  What is your story? Home Sweet Home! Country, Home, Hearth, Health, Wellbeing and Family.  What do you adhere to for your long term and enduring values? This Solar Eclipse at zero degrees of Cancer is bringing up what lies deep within you. Highly personal and a time to connect with how far you have come. What in your own history and experience brings the security and deep feelings you need? What belongs to you and your experience? What is your story! After all is said and done, what and where are your loyalties? You may be looking at family pictures. Nostalgia! All things from the past that has brought you to where you are now. Celebrate your journey and all the ups and downs. It is your story!


 The subconscious, the emotions, and instinctual behavior. Intense emotion and great sensitivity. This sign connects us with the past, our roots, family, and the way we were raised. This is the most fertile sign of the zodiac. Time to nurture, protect, and care for the things that we want to bring forth now. It rules the breast and the stomach. The house ruled by Cancer shows where you build foundations in your personal life.
There are twelve New Moon’s a year and there is one in each sign. This organizes our year by giving focus to each sign during the course of the year. This helps like a clock or a calendar giving us timing. Once a year we have a New Moon in Cancer and this is the one to set your intentions for home and family. This New Moon is a Solar Eclipse and it takes place on the Summer Solstice which makes it more powerful in bringing about what you want for long term and enduring values. This will also focus on what lifestyle you want. This is the longest day of the year when there is more light than dark.

Venus has been retrograding since May 13th at 21 degrees Gemini. Venus goes direct on the 25th at 5 degrees Gemini. It is stationing at that degree right on this Solar Eclipse.  Lots to put into the intentions for this Solar Eclipse at zero Cancer. You will be setting up what you want for the next couple of years. Venus in Gemini has been helpful to bring to your mind what is really valuable.

The Planet Mercury is also in Cancer at this time. Mercury rules our mind and thinking and it is focused on the home and family as well. Mercury just went retrograde on the 18th at 14 degrees Cancer and will go direct July 12th at 5 degrees Cancer. We are rethinking things over about family, home, lifestyle and living conditions.

Mars is the planet of action, energy, passion and competitiveness. Mars is with Neptune as Neptune goes retrograde in Pisces bringing intuition, compassion, and feelings into what we accomplish.

This New Moon/Solar Eclipse is in the Cardinal Sign Cancer. Cardinal signs bring action. Six Planets are retrograde at the time of this eclipse. Lots of fixin to do. There are five out of ten of the planetary energies in Cardinal signs. Lots of action brought about by this New Moon/Solar Eclipse. 

Saturn is retrograde in Aquarius returning to Capricorn where it has been for a couple of years on July 1st. Saturn will remain in Capricorn until December 17th, 2020. This is all about what you need to do to get everything the way you want it. Lots to do and it all has meaning.

This is a symbol of the extremes to which an individual will go in the practical allegiances with which he meets the various situations in life, and of his capacity to compromise or reverse any stand he may take whenever this suits his ultimate ends. Here is his inflexible determination to further every ambition, and his consistent preparation for every eventuality that might be anticipated. He is unhappy except as he somehow can feel himself safely a step ahead of himself. The keyword is ADAPTABILITY. When positive, the degree is a gift for highly profitable adjustment in every developing relationship with others, and when negative, vacillation if not complete instability.                                           “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
