For women, the Solar Eclipse in Cancer has a strange side-consequence.
It’s exact next week – July 12 and 13 – and the time for your zone is on the Moon Calendar. But the Pluto-Sun opposition aspect of it is forming days beforehand. It’s this Pluto Vibe that will make it feel more like a Full Moon than a New Moon.
See your Horoscopes for more sign-nuanced thoughts.
BUT the Eclipse has a peculiar influence besides being a Pluto boosted fresh emotional beginning vibe. It is a time when females could find that emotions around children, babies and – especially – pregnancies (both completed and not completed) come up powerfully. How so? Via sudden flashes, strong feeling surges, and spooky dreams. It’s like a Womb Moon, with a cathartic tug from Pluto.
Losses – chosen endings or unbidden – may need to be mourned or honored in some way. Between now and then would also be a good time to Feng Shui Your Vagina. That is just my flippant term for a ritual that can be really and clearing.
By nature, these sorts of things are extremely private – very 8th house, as we say in pseudo-intellectual-astro-bitch circles. The Solar Eclipse energy favors solitude and the pondering of scenarios that don’t necessarily benefit from discussion or sharing.
The ‘letting go’ and emotional connection vibe is most potent in the Dark Moon during the 48 hours right before the New Moon Solar Eclipse is exact. And the more pointed or poignant the moment, the stronger the rejuvenation of this Moon.
If you still think Friday 13 is any sort of a bad thing, think again and read this, from the archives. It’s a Goddess-linked combo of numbers + days and thus auspicious when occurring on a Solar Eclipse In Cancer!
