Awakening you to the Archetypal Movement during the week ahead. The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the energy available astrologically, for the purpose of spiritual and personal development.
On July 12th, 2018 we will be having a Solar Eclipse at 20 degrees Cancer. Astrologically and esoterically a solar eclipse is an extra powerful New Moon. New Moons are generally powerful times to set intentions and start over. When the Moon is darkest and our slate is clean, a Solar Eclipse gives us a psychic flavor to what we intend to manifest in our lives. A New Moon is like the soil, the best time to set intentions and use the energy for growth. A Full Moon is like the rose, the manifestation of the seed you planted during the New Moon. In reality, a Solar Eclipse is when the earth is situated between the Sun and Moon, blocking out the Sun for a moment in time. Allowing the Moon’s feminine energy to take control of the planet, that is why most people feel tired or drained during a solar eclipse. This generally happens in the daytime, that is why it is supposed to represent a disruption of one’s habits or normal energy flow, what is happening is a resetting of your energy. So this could be felt as our subconscious thoughts brought to the surface, for better or worse. Understanding your power and how it manifests is important, dealing with changes in your life, and examining attachments are some highlighted themes during this upcoming Solar Eclipse.
This New Moon will be opposite Pluto in Capricorn. So the seeds you plant during this time are connected to a destiny beyond your normal reality. What would need to be unified here is our present transformation/changes with our present identity, accepting the changes that need to happen for the betterment of our divine purpose. So this is a sensitive time for people and dealing with pain. If you do not redirect it you will definitely lash out and look for someone to blame. So, if you are in the process of healing and reaching inner peace you will be granted your desires and wishes that are in alignment with your purpose. This new moon represents a moment of stark contrasts. On one hand, your wildest dream and your worst nightmare might be separated by a paper like veil. On the other hand what makes you successful may be what makes you different. Are you investing in your individuality?
An opposition is an aspect marked by a lack of balance, perspective or proportion. An either/or type of influence. Compromise is needed to understand these aspects. And these aspects ultimately use people and situations to explain themselves. Dealing and confronting oppositions lead to our greatest growth and evolution. Certain inner struggles incite ambition within us so it’s good to understand the purpose of them. Oppositions speak to true character.
There will be two Grand Trines activated during this Solar Eclipse, both have different but aligning purposes during this Solar Eclipse. There will be a Water and Earth Grand Trine, respectively.
The Earth Grand Trine consists of Uranus in Taurus, Venus in Virgo, and Saturn in Capricorn. Uranus wants to bring terrestrial changes in whatever house it falls in your chart. Venus in Virgo wants you to do what you truly love. Saturn in Capricorn is concerned with restructuring your life towards your ideals. This Earth Energy will be potent, life-changing, and tangible.
The Water Grand Trine consists of Neptune in Pisces, Jupiter in Scorpio, and The New Moon(Moon conjunct Sun) in Cancer. Neptune in Pisces represents the third eye opening and self-realization. Jupiter in Scorpio represents the clearing of trauma for the purpose of expansion. The New Moon in Cancer will be in the second decan which is ruled by the Moon so this represents emotions, emotions, and more emotions. Using Saturn will create enough boundaries to endure this transformation to its completion. Operating through a plan will be rewarded while wishful thinking will lead to not so obvious failure.
A trine represents Good Luck, Charm, and Grace. This aspect indicates talent that a person is simply born with. They do not require a struggle to manifest, they just are. And since it may come super easy one may take these aspects for granted and never fully realize them. So a Grand Trine represents this energy raised to miracle levels.
The Tarot Card for Cancer 3rd decan is the 4 of Cups, the Lord of Luxury. This card represents affection, luck, and attention. The dark side of this card is understanding your responsibility to others, taking things for granted, and a lack of gratitude. An alternative is to be grateful for your present situation.
I’m alone nobody loves me | Grateful that I am Single and Free
I’m in a relationship, I’m trapped | Someone has my back, I am grateful
This card speaks to enjoying the moment, also understanding that lack of progress is decay. There is a feeling with this energy of reaching true satisfaction, a feeling of no longer needing and wanting something you desperately sought for years. Understanding responsibility and being a balanced force we can create deep love and appreciation for self and our abilities gained during this Solar Eclipse.

Orisha of the Week
Yemaya is the great mother who lives and rules over the seas. Esoterically the “seas” or “water” represent Emotions. Although she is maternal and nurturing she is also fierce. One of the most powerful orishas in Santeria. The Mother of all living things. She gives birth to the stars, the moon, and the sun. She is found in the oceans, lakes, and lagoons. Yemaya’s spiritual power is nurturing protection and fertility. Within Yemaya and her various paths, she carries all experiences of womanhood. The Zodiac Sign for Yemaya is Cancer. So this Solar Eclipse her energy will be highlighted. The Saint syncretized to Yemaya in Santeria is Our Lady of Regla.
Our Lady of Regla — (“In Spain, the slang term for menstruation is regla “rule”) She is a Black Madonna carved in the 5th Century. She is used for Money problems, fertility, and protection. She is known as the patroness(protective force) of all of Cuba. Originally from Africa, she was carved in dark wood by the order of St. Augustine(Roman African, Berber = indigenous to north Africa). An angel indicated him to sculpt it and that is how she got her name. Throughout history she has been protected and worshipped by various groups, always revealing herself to work miracles and from that, she is worshipped.
Black Madonnas = “dark brown or black Madonnas with physiognomy and skin pigmentation matching that of the indigenous population;”
“The shrines and images of the Black Virgin have an undeniable spiritual power, which explains their attraction for tourists, as well as those seeking a cure for their ills,” writes Ralph Metzner. “
