Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse - July 21-22, 2009

by Cathy Pagano July 21, 2009 01:38 PM EST
Our second Cancer New Moon, occurring at the last degree of Cancer, marks the emergence of something new regarding the Cancer aspect of human experience.  The fact that it is also a total solar eclipse - which unfortunately will not be seen in the Americas, but will be seen in Asia - enhances this radical new beginning.

Since the Moon is also at its closest approach to Earth, the gravitational pull on the tides of the oceans as well as our inner emotional tides will be stronger than usual. If you're already experiencing strong emotional tides, let them carry you to new shores.  As you will see from the Sabian symbol for this new Moon, it's time to live a new way and create a new style of life.

The Sabian Symbol for the Sun and Moon at 30* Cancer is:

A Daughter of the American Revolution.  This is an image of someone who is the product of a great change.  It is someone who now has the opportunity to live and grow in a new environment.  Since it is a daughter rather than a son, it symbolizes the feminine aspect of life which takes in the new changes and incarnates them.  Where have you finally realized that your old life is dead and that you have to step forward and create a whole new life for yourself?  What do you need to believe to create that new life?  What old habits and emotional wounds need to be left behind?  See where 30 Cancer is in your chart, and you'll find a focus to base those changes on.   

Solar eclipses eliminate old ideas and ways of doing things.  They also repeat every 19 years. So you might like to remember what was going on in 1990 and see how you responded to the situation you encountered.  How did you change then?  If you went with something new, now you have another opportunity to take that ability or realization to the next level of achievement.  If you didn't change, you will probably find yourself in a similar situation with your back to the wall. This isn't about blame, but rather life processes. Evolution is necessary for life!

The effects of a total solar eclipse usually last 3 years and are future oriented.  What you can expect depends on how it affects your chart.  If you have planets in the last 5 degrees of cardinal signs and the first 5 degrees of fixed signs, you will experience changes in those areas represented by the planets and houses. And if you were born, incorporated a business or had anything else 'born' from July 17-27, October 17-27, January 14-24, and April 14-24, you are going to experience fundamental change in your life.

Let yourself open to the Earth's energies, and you will find help with all of life's problems.  We are, after all, children of Mother Earth.

Until next time,

Sweet Dreams!
