Hello it’s eclipse season! Lets get ready!
We have a total solar eclipse on July 2nd followed by a partial lunar eclipse on July 16-17th…
What does this all mean?
A total solar eclipse happens when the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth at the right angle and alignment to cover the whole of the Sun’s surface. In this particular eclipse the Sun is on Cancer. Cancer is the sign of the home, where we feel secure and grounded be it our physical home or the ways we have identified with creating a home. An eclipse brings changes to those affected so this may mean a literal change of home or a change of our meaning of home, changing our approach to creating a home, a different way of feeling that security… A Solar eclipse is usually linked to new beginnings.
A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth comes in between the Sun and the Moon. in this case we have a partial lunar eclipse in Capricorn. A Solar eclipse always comes followed by a lunar eclipse – note that Capricorn is the sign right opposite Cancer, as the Sun and the Moon are in opposition (the Sun is still in Cancer). Capricorn is the sign of family and career, so to those affected there may be changes in these areas of life. Lunar eclipses are usually linked to releasing and letting go.
Here’s last week’s mantra from Kaypacha:
Sometimes I simply need to withdraw,
From the madness going on,
To create, protect, and hold the space,
Of my peaceful, loving home.
Introspection and finding answers inside, best to use this time to prepare for the eclipse season and smoothly welcome any coming changes. You can watch the whole report here
