The solar eclipse in the sign of Cancer today indicates we are ready to deepen with an inner infusion of love and security. Cancer gives love and nurturing in order to feel belonging and security, but will control and feel fearful if that desired security seems unavailable. Depending on where the eclipse falls in your chart, you have an opportunity to create more love in that part of your life. With aspects to planets and angles you might find yourself connected to the energies of several areas of life with the eclipse.
I find people are intuitively in touch with transits and major events such as an eclipse, so even if you don't know where the sign of Cancer falls in your chart, no doubt you are already in alignment with the energies, thinking of what you really need and want at your deepest heart level, and will feel and then create the necessary changes as the months unfold.
As I opened my computer this morning the first headline heralded the eclipse: 'Feds focus on families in new homeless plan'. What a perfect Cancer eclipse goal! Yesterday I noticed an article on famed multi-billionaire Warren Buffett. Seems he surprised everyone with what he felt was the best life advice he ever received and the most important thing to give children so they will succeed in the world. 'Unconditional love' was his unexpected answer. He is in the process of giving away 99% of his fortune to charity and is encouraging other billionaires to give away half. We'll see more governmental and media focus on family, love and security in the upcoming months. Our world is changing. Do not lose hope.
On an individual basis here's some quick astrological house ideas to meditate on as you set your affirmations for the eclipse.
First House: More love in the way you express yourself. Be the Love.
Second House: Creating financial security for yourself and family. Realizing you need physical expressions of nurturing including food that makes your body sing.
Third House: Speak with love. Think of yourself and others in a caring way.
Fourth House: Love in the home. Connecting with your family -- this may be birth family but can also be the family you're creating now, including pets.
Fifth House: Infusing your creative pursuits with love. Feeling the heart in romantic and playful situations with friends, children and lovers. Ensuring your children are secure and feel loved.

Seventh House: Your most powerful partnerships -- intimate partner, best friends, business partners -- can be infused with a deeper sense of security and caring.
Eighth House: Caring shown and security created through the finances you share with others. This can be inheritances and the finances you share with your life partner. Infuse your deep sexuality with tenderness with this eclipse placement.
Ninth House: Love is the answer whatever the philosophical question. Travel to a soothing water vacation spot.
Tenth House: In your career or public life, are you in alignment with your heart's truth?
Eleventh House: Is your heart open to the groups and associations you engage with? Are your biggest plans for this life in alignment with the love principle.
Twelfth House: Deep in your psyche you are asked to replace fears and blockages with love and openness. Your spirit is love. You can access this love and make it real in the world through service.
As always, give the love you want to receive the love you want.
