Solar Eclipse in Cancer: Protecting The Heart’s Vision
Tuesday, July 2nd, 2019  (at 3.16 pm edt - 10 deg 38’ Cancer)

This week’s solar eclipse mirrors the first one of the year in Capricorn (on January 5th at 15 deg 25’), the sign that opposes Cancer. This eclipse will be followed by a lunar eclipse in Capricorn on July 16th 24 deg 04’. 

The Cancer / Capricorn axis has been the center of this year’s astrological focus; with Saturn, Pluto, and the Moon’s South Node conjunct in Capricorn all year, this aspect is famously named the “meat grinder” by astrologer Austin Coppock, and the eruptions are coming to a head with this month’s eclipses.

The Sun and Moon in Cancer are opposite the meat grinder, when our identities, needs and desires may be challenged to the core. 

Where the Capricorn planets land in your personal chart can show you what part of your life may be in need of pruning; whatever needs to be changed WILL. Time to take charge and direct these energies for change and take the challenge; if you resist, the change will come regardless. This is a time to create strong boundaries, and dedicate your efforts to mastering the skills that you know will be worth the sacrifice of time, sweat, and effort.

RITUALS FOR THIS SOLAR ECLIPSE CYCLE
Today and tomorrow, while the moon is in Cancer, work on purifying, clearing, and letting go. This is NOT the time for rituals of increase, since eclipses signify a darkening of the light, and are best used for meditation, clearing, ritual baths, and purging yourself, home, and habits.


This would be a good time to make a vow to yourself to clear our obstacles to your BEST self … what activities, habits, or people are weighing you down with negativity? What are you ready to release? Focus on purifying your space, your mind, your body …

RITUAL BATH
- Make sure your bath tub is squeaky clean!
- in a clean washcloth, add epsom salt, sea salt, dried lavender or sage. Tie it with string or a rubber band and put it in your bath. If you don’t have the herbs, plain salt in the bath will do … add a few drops of essential oils if you have them, or make a cup of peppermint tea and add it to your bath.
- light candles and incense if you like.
- Soak in the bath, and imagine the salt pulling out  any mental, physical, or psychic impurities from your body and aura.
- Imagine all obstacles to your goals are being released, and reaffirm your commitment to do all in your power to bring your ideas into form.
- When you feel clear, imagine all of the impurities are washed down the drain, and express gratitude for clarity, and the opportunity to make a fresh start.

In a few days, once the moon is waxing, focus on what you want to create. 

Write down your goals and make a commitment to yourself that you will love yourself and your life enough to follow through! The good news is: this is a long-term transit; you can break your goal down into two years, and then further into quarters. Slow and steady is Saturn’s way, but you must commit and keep moving forward, however slowly.
