July 2nd New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer
A New Moon is an auspicious time to discover, design and devise a new vision of your future. Set clear intentions at this time.
A Solar Eclipse will show us our shadow in terms of our self-perception. We can be rather out of touch with who we really are due to conditioning, family dynamics, illusion and delusion. A Solar eclipse can escort the genuine parts of us to the surface to be examined.
This New Moon Solar Eclipse takes place in the sign of Cancer and we will experience a deep urge to cultivate inner support and seek emotional security. With the shadow on the Sun, we may locate some of the impenetrable walls that exist within our souls. These structures have been painstakingly assembled over many years’ time as a defense against being hurt, or ignored.
Our protections are strong for good reason; they keep us safe from pain or so we think. The dilemma however is that we yearn for connection and to feel that we belong, but how can we be nurtured, seen and loved and also walled off to those very things?
This eclipse helps us to awaken to what is within us, to begin to see that we have all of it- the vulnerabilities that need protecting, the safety and security of our defenses, the need for love and validation, and the discernment to know when it is appropriate to allow each piece to claim what it needs. These necessary tools fix and fortify different parts of us at different times. We require all of them, the trick is to figure out when to use each to maximum benefit.
