On a (bit of a) belated note, we should still be feeling the effects of last week’s (July 11) solar eclipse with the New Moon in Cancer. New Moons signify new beginnings and change, and eclipsed New Moons enhance this energy for about five or six months post-eclipse. This solar eclipse of the New Moon in Cancer follows on the heels of the partial lunar eclipse of the Full Moon in Capricorn on June 26; you can expect the coming months to be full of the Moon’s watery Cancer energy.Â During this time, both the Sun and the Moon were in Cancer, increasing this sign’s power and giving us a time to reflect on dichotomies: the inner and the outer, male vs. female energy, and past and future,Â as well as our family and emotions. What led you to where you are presently in your relationships?
Unseen by the majority of the world’s population, the moon’s umbral shadow crossed the South Pacific Ocean, connecting with the Cook Islands, Easter Island, and the southern tip of Chile and Argentina. Since so few had a chance to witness the actual eclipse, I found some amazing photos from Fox News (released by China’s Xinhua News Agency). Enjoy!
