Sunday, JUNE 21
Today’s New Moon occurs in the sign of Cancer and is a Solar Eclipse, bringing the chance for a fresh start. While it’s occurring close to the solstice and has “new beginning” energy, it’s the last New Moon in the series of eclipses that have been falling along the Cancer-Capricorn sign axis since 2018. Still, one more eclipse in that set is outstanding, happening on July 5th in the sign of Capricorn.
With today’s eclipse, we’re called upon to pay attention to our instincts, our deepest needs, and our feelings. We need to recognize the importance of our family and/or personal circle and the security, sense of belonging, and safety that we derive from them. It’s a time for getting in touch with our vulnerabilities and our needs for intimacy.
Flaws in an important system in our lives are revealed, prompting us to redo or start afresh. Something ends for something else to start anew. We may be called to give up something so that we can move forward into a new chapter.
This eclipse can be considered another cosmic nudge toward creating a better balance between responsibilities to the world and our homes, or between our inner and outer worlds. The focus is on new beginnings related to our personal lives, need for nurture and to nurture, attention to family, living conditions and arrangments, and domestic experience.
A Sun-Saturn quincunx today can point to a clash between a desire to enjoy ourselves and our responsibilities. Doubts or lack of faith can slow us down and hinder our movements and initiatives. Even so, this can be a helpful process as we take a break from pushing ahead. We might now see the need to adjust our plans based on new responsibilities or a reality check.
The void Moon continues until the Moon enters Cancer at 2:02 AM EDT.
