Solar Eclipse 3rd July 2019
New Moon/Solar Eclipse 5:15am (AEST) 3rd July 2019
The Solar Eclipse on Wednesday is the first of an eclipse cycle, with a Lunar Eclipse happening on July 17th (more about that soon).
The most striking thing about both these eclipses is that they will magnify the incumbent Cancer/Capricorn ‘tunnel’ that’s been going on for months between the Saturn/Pluto conjunction opposing the North Node.
The tension between the old dying domain of the South Node: the crumbling of attitudes and infrastructures based on outdated and dysfunctional patriarchal values of every- man-for-himself, the vast gap of inequality and the new world of Unity, sustainability and cooperation, and what people are calling 5th Dimensional consciousness, or what Eckhart Tolle called ‘The New Earth’.
This Solar Eclipse is made more tangible because with the addition of Mars and Mercury, the disruptive frequencies are brought onto a more day-to-day realm.
Mars has just moved into Leo, and is much more effective and fast moving in a fire sign than in a water sign like Cancer where it has to negotiate with the emotional currents and shifting needs. Mercury in the configuration pushes the whole pattern out into a clear field of communication, a much more directive way of moving forward now that all these issues are coming out into the mainstream media. And as I sit here writing I am reminded how I read today that at the G20 conference although cooperation for the trade wars wasn’t reached, at least there’s a truce. So things are moving out into the open where at least they can be aired and negotiated.
The New Moon sitting so closely to the North Node bodes well too.
The North Node shows us how we can move forward into the future, how we can focus our energy on moving into the best expression of Cancer which is kindness and taking care of one another and our home, planet Earth, rather than being trapped in the quagmire of the South Node, the shadow side of Capricorn: ruthless ambition and the exploitation of resources purely for the sake of winning rather than the even distribution for all to benefit from.
Saturn is exactly conjunct the South Node highlighting the vulnerabilities of that competitive ego driven imperative. Saturn demands reality checks about survival and sustainability. It encourages us to streamline and cull back to only what is needed. This austerity can serve us well at this time. Do you really need three televisions? Do you really need your fortieth pair of shoes? Do you really need more possessions, more baggage?
This is a real questioning of our material values especially for the Eastern States of Australia, where the New Moon sits in the second house (see chart below). Pluto is also exactly conjunct the Vertex, aka known as the ‘electrical ascendant’ and a sense that things are out of our hands on a personal level, thus a powerful transformational force to go with rather than against.
Many have already been feeling some of these energies, Eclipses can usually be felt months before they actually occur and their effects resonate for months afterwards.
