July 13, 2018 20° Cancer 41‘ 10:48 pm

An eclipse occurs when the orbits of the Moon and the Earth align closely enough together with the Sun and the Moon to block the light of the Sun from the Earth (a Solar Eclipse), or the Moon (a Lunar Eclipse).

Every month we have a New Moon, but only every six months do we have eclipses. A Solar Eclipse is when the Moon is exactly between the Sun and the Earth and blocks the light of the Sun from the Earth. Solar Eclipses are very powerful New Moons and are known to herald significant and powerful endings and beginnings. Events that are triggered by an eclipse usually take six months to unfold, so you can expect this process of change to continue as you begin to feel like a flower opening its’ petals. Special opportunities to break old patterns become apparent as you begin to make major changes in your life. Metamorphosis is another word associated with eclipses.

The Solar Eclipse on July 13, 2018 will occur at 10:48pm at 20° Cancer 41’. All Cancer Sun Sign people will be most affected by this Solar Eclipse as will those with Cancer rising. If you are a Capricorn or have Capricorn rising you will feel this Eclipse more strongly than most because in our sky the constellation of Capricorn is opposite the constellation of Cancer and is in direct alignment with this Eclipse. Overall, you will find yourself redoing your life from your toes to the top of your head and your appearance will be changed radically as you enhance your image to reflect the massive changes going on within you!! Remember, Eclipses are about endings . . and beginnings!! Ultimately the changes in how you see yourself will affect how you are perceived by others thereby affecting all of your personal AND business relationships!! Response to an Eclipse is both psychological and physical as each individual responds in a unique manner. This is all good as you review your life, let go of past aspirations, recommit to what works and plant fresh seeds for personal growth!!

Depending on the part of your chart (house) that is activated, we can determine exactly what part of your life will be most affected. If you are a Cancer almost every part of your life will be affected, but all of us will feel a shift of some sort coming on. If the Eclipse falls in your 1st/7th houses, you are working on yourself, on your marriage or your relationship. If it is the 2nd/8th houses, it is your earnings or joint finances that are affected. If it is the 3rd/9th houses, it could be a year of travel or educational pursuits. For more information on how this eclipse falls in your personal chart, give me a call. With any eclipse, what is hidden will come to light and your secret desires may not be secret anymore. You may break away from a relationship that no longer suits your needs, or you may be faced with changes beyond your control. The six months ahead will give you the time to sort through your feelings and explore other options. Remember: change is good! Change in thought, manner, speech, dress, lifestyle, career, health, family, expectations and goals are all part of the plan and the process of you creating a more fulfilled life. You may feel uncomfortable as you let go of what is familiar and you step way outside your boundaries to make room in your head and your heart for new ideas and ultimately a new lifestyle!
