On July 2nd, we experience a new moon and a solar eclipse in Cancer.
I am not an astrologer, so what follows comes from my personal experience and my work with the cards.
Eclipses throw me for a loop.
The energy of this particular one has started to build and I’m feeling it already. It is bringing up feelings of insecurity, uncertainty as far as my place in the world and my stability in general. I feel a desire to gather in my resources, to protect myself, to compensate for any vulnerabilities as much as I can. I want to take good care of my home, and my family. I want to attract abundance, affluence and share the wealth with those I love.
Are you feeling it, too?
I think of Cancer the crab…that soft and squishy interior protected by a hard shell. I think about where in my life I feel vulnerable, where I feel strong, and what I need to possess or do to feel that I have some degree of stability when it comes to finances, home and family.
The New Moon is a powerful time to create and set intentions, and an eclipse can bring what is hidden to light, or can take us into those shadowy places we’ve been avoiding.
With that in mind, I’ll consult my cards, and explore the issues that these celestial events are raising in my heart and mind. Grab your cards and give this spread a try with me.
