But that’s not all.
The planet Mars will ingress the sign of Leo shortly after tomorrow’s Solar Eclipse, and Venus will leave the sign of Gemini for Cancer on Wednesday, July 3rd. What’s more, Mercury will station retrograde at 4 Degrees Leo, eventually backing up into Cancer, on Sunday, July 7th.
What does all this mean? It means that what you think is done is not over yet.
Cancer and Capricorn are both nurturer and provider, respectively. To have eclipses loom large in these signs brings tension between emotionality and practicality. What do I need right now, and how can I be realistic in attaining those needs?
We are being challenged to remain measured and rational (Capricorn) in the midst of strong feelings and an impassioned disposition (Cancer); to stay grounded (Capricorn) as we allow deep sentiments to surface (Cancer); to show care and consideration for others (Cancer), but not at the expense of our core values and principles (Capricorn).
Too much Cancer energy can be weighted down in watery reactions. Too much Capricorn energy can be weighted down in earthy pragmatism. But because the Solar Eclipse is in Cancer, we can stand to let our feelings guide us, even if scary - even if it means making a difficult decision. In fact, with the Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn, we’ll have an easy go at the emotional stuff if we can release rigidity and resistance.
And that is exactly what we are being called to do right now.
Of course, we may fight for and demand desired results courtesy of Mars in Leo, and there may be some back and forth around decisions courtesy of Mercury retrograde. Our saving grace will be Venus in Cancer; the love goddess will encourage us to lovingly navigate our way through the other side of these eclipses with much sensitivity.
Until then, be gentle dear reader. No rash decisions. Get into your heart space – you can do so by nourishing your emotional body and grounding yourself in activities that bring inner peace. Nothing will be settled or resolved until August, so you have no choice but to lean into the feels. I promise, though, you will be better for it. All of us will be better for it.
