Welcome to eclipse season!
We are now heading towards the first eclipse, which is a total solar eclipse occurring on July 2nd in sentimental Cancer. This is the first total solar eclipse since 2017. Therefore, we can expect to experience major emotional shifts. Touted as “the Great South American Eclipse,” this luminary will make us evolve and grow—whether we are ready or not.
Let’s backtrack to this week’s cosmic events, that are leading up to the solar eclipse. Winged messenger Mercury enters passionate Leo on June 26th, adding flair and drama to all communications. Expect big promises and words to win over our hearts and the sentiments of others—even if we can’t deliver. June 27th brings us major personal transformation. The Cancer Sun aspects both rebellious Uranus and healing asteroid Chiron. This cosmic alliance will usher us to accept old upsets and move forward. Even if old wounds sting, we are ready to mend fences and resolve the past. Action planet Mars steps out of emotional Cancer and enters fiery Leo on July 1st, setting the stage for ambition, desires, and power.
March 21-April 19
Right now, you’re extra protective of your throne and evolving your new found support system. Shedding the past and letting go of outdated views will serve to elevate your inner wellness. Also, surrounding yourself with different people will help you to feel more grounded and connected than before. Releasing relationships that are not elevating your spirit will be the core focus of the week, as you are ready to get rid of dead emotional weight and vampiric partnerships. You are transcending and growing into the best version of yourself. Allow yourself the opportunity to get back in touch with your needs.
April 20-May 20
Speaking from the heart is always challenging. Often times, you express your sentiments simply with others in hopes that they will hear exactly what you are trying to say, even though you can’t find the right words to state your feelings. This week you will need to be extra direct with those within your inner circle. Before you charge ahead letting others know your thoughts, try to be tactful and straight forward. You don’t have to have conflict and arguments in order to let your truth be known. Be strategic in relationships this week to avoid quarrels and falling-outs during the eclipse.
May 21-June 20
You’re stepping out of your comfort zone and into a space of authority this week. It may be hard to accept your new role as the at first, you are learning to create boundaries with others and to manifest your own happiness through your heightened sense of security. Understand that with supremacy comes great power. You will see by the end of the week that you have influence over others and that you can sway votes your way (if you choose). Use your leverage for a higher and greater cause during the solar eclipse to evolve your spirit.
June 21-July 22
You’re currently blinded by your own emotions, which is causing you to not see situations clearly. The solar eclipse will bring hidden sentiments to the forefront of your mind and even allow you to reflect on recent events. You will be cosmically tasked to acknowledge repressed emotions, even if it forces you to shed some tears. Not revealing all of your feelings and wearing your heart on your sleeve with caution is advised, until you know who you can trust. Staying in your hard shell will protect your tender heart of glass and keep you safe until you are ready to share.
July 23-August 22
Your anxiety may reach a staggering high this week, mostly due to your innate desire to rule the world. While the need to control and be in charge has served to quench your spirit in the past, you are now acknowledging that these tactics are not working for you anymore. Looking deep inside yourself and assessing your part in a situation will help you come to terms with the knowledge that you must karmically reap what you have sewn and make amends with those you may have wronged. Let your softer side be seen in order to heal relationships.
August 23-Sept. 22
Your interpersonal relationships may take a hit during the solar eclipse. Others will project their insecurities and fears on to you, which in return may cause arguments to ensue. Stepping back from the drama will benefit you greatly. However, you may be pushed to make a passive statement which will trigger an altercation. Rather than engaging in the row, turn off your phone and disconnect for the day. Take your power back and focus on yourself. Not only will you feel better about yourself by not submitting to conflict, but you will also be able to mend fences down the road.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
The solar eclipse will push you to put a price tag on all your efforts (friendships, partnerships, work, etc...). You’re learning what you’re worth to others based on how they treat you. The blinders are coming off and you are seeing others for who they are. You are now acknowledging that for a while they have been taking your kindness for granted. It’s time to say “no” to those who are selfishly using your generosity for their own personal gain. Creating balance in relationships and keeping others on an equal plane will make them see their wrongdoings sooner than later.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Your thirst for adventure is high, especially during the eclipse. The mundane tasks of day-to-day life have now left you restless and yearning for excitement. You can always leave town for a day or two if needed. But, what you will come to see is that your mind is hungry for new insights and perspectives. Head to a meditation class, a workshop, or even the library to ignite the passion for wisdom and enlightenment burning deep within. You yearn to be challenged and uncover hidden truths. Your mind wants to explore and understand the world. After all, knowledge is power.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
The need to control others may cause tensions within partnerships. Learning to trust is always hard, but you must have faith in others to ensure the longevity of the relationship. No one likes to be told what to do (certainly not you!). While you want to give freedom, you are feeling insecure and doubting the intentions of others, based on your relationship history. Learning to trust completely and lessening the control you have within your relationships will help you emotionally thrive. Intimacy can also be heightened, as long as you are honest with what you want and require from others.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Fear has been holding you back from moving personal relationships forward. While this may not manifest in major ways, you have held your tongue and kept your emotions guarded. The solar eclipse is pushing you to let your feelings be known, even if it is emotionally scary. The cosmos are giving you the chance to revise partnerships. If others rebuke your testimony, then you can move on knowing you gave it your all. The flip side, is that you may be surprised about how receptive others are to your sentiments. However, you will never know unless you take a chance.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
This week gives you the opportunity to heal yourself. It’s also an ideal time to sort out issues with others that have been plaguing you for a while. You are evolving and transcending into the best version of yourself, even if you have momentary setbacks. The lesson to be learned is to not mirror other people’s emotions. Meaning, you can break away from the projections others impose on you (and vice-versa). Under the solar eclipse, allow yourself to be set free from emotional constraints that have hindered your development. Let go of those who wish to limit your personal growth.
Feb. 19-March 20
You’re now inclined to strike out more on your own than before, which will encourage you to come into your personal independence. Expressing yourself through artistic and romantic sentiments will elevate your desire to create beauty. In the past, you’ve been cautious and treaded lightly in the water, waiting for life to happen. You are seeing that you have to live for yourself and not wait for your lucky break. You have to make it happen. This week, you’re in the mood to swim toward your dreams. Take a gamble on your yourself and your tender heart without hesitation.
