The Moon is New in Cancer on June 21, 2020, at 2:42 AM EDT. This is a solar eclipse.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 0 degrees and 21 minutes of Cancer, just after the solstice.
This Solar Eclipse is the final eclipse in Cancer in a set of eclipses falling along the Cancer-Capricorn axis that started in July 2018. Still, there is one more eclipse in this set–on July 5th, a Lunar Eclipse occurs in Capricorn.
This eclipse can be considered another cosmic nudge toward creating a better balance between responsibilities to the world and to 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.
In general, the New Moon in Cancer is a good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Crab. These include honoring our deepest, most irrational and intimate, feelings; recognizing the sense of security and safety we derive from whatever it is we call home; allowing ourselves to accept support and offering support to others; and starting a project aimed at improving our domestic lives or a major long-term venture. With this potent Cancer energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives that will benefit us well beyond this Moon cycle.
Since this is a Solar Eclipse, we may feel wiped out, ignored, or overruled before we are motivated to make a big change or new beginning.
