The month of July is very important in 2018, as it is going to bring forward quite a few new happenings which are beyond the terrestrial, a venture into the extraterrestrial mode of events.
The first important event in this month is the July New Moon Eclipse which is going to take part in the domestic sign of Cancer, and in that way affect the lives of people that surround us.
Since the immemorial, it has been noted that constellations and the movement of heavenly bodies tend to affect our self, as well as our society. Although most of them are beneficial for the agricultural growth of our society, for which astrology was initially developed for, it has to be understood that it also helps us, as humans in our growth as human beings.
On the 12th of July, in the sign of Cancer, we are going to see a New Moon.
It is also going to be a Super Moon and a partial Solar Eclipse. Just like the New Moon, which starts the previous lunar cycle in the sign of Gemini, this one will sail exceptionally close to Earth on her orbit, which means that her energetic pull is going to very strong. You should expect tidal ranges to be extreme, together with emotions.
Solar Eclipses are events which affect the Sun, Moon and the planet Earth, as it occurs when the Moon is between the Sun and the planet Earth. This will result in the Moon blocking or jutting out most of the rays of the Sun which would affect the Earth, and plunge mankind into a state of darkness.
What is surprising about Eclipses is that they often have very bad connotations attached to them. But in reality, they help us grow as individuals, as well as attach much importance and meaning to our lives.
The prejudice against eclipses being harmful to people is the main reason why they are so dubious about its effects. No one can deny that eclipses create some events which are potentially life-alerting and which this planetary movement of the Moon, as well as the Earth, is what results in changing circumstances throughout the planet.
It was said that Eclipses are signal from God, even though those are just religious dogma.
In real life, they are simply events which are a giant spectacle on the great screen which is the sky. This summer is going to be the host of three Eclipses, of which the one on the 12th of July would be the most fascination of all. The other two Eclipses will be on the 27th of July and 11th of August.
This will also affect the line of the axis between the Cancer and the Capricorn cycle, and hence it will lead to extremely diversified events, which are going to be transformational and ingenious between now and 2020.
Cancer, which is the sign of the crab, is a water sign in fact. It is not fixed, deep and brooding like the sing of Scorpio, but it is active, as well as initiating and flowing. Like a busy mother figure, twirling around the kitchen in her skirts, busily tending the nest for her babies, Cancer births the new season, creating space in that way. Also, it offers a haven in which to unwind, offload, as well as be witnessed. Cancer offers home, security, and sanctuary. The places where we take rest are nurtures and find our family. This Super Moon is going to exaggerate our yearning for this homecoming.
But, what actually causes a partial Solar Eclipse?
Eclipses always come in pairs at least we can say that. The one that follows is the first of three, which is unusual. As we already mentioned, the next two are July 27th (Lunar Eclipse at 4º Aquarius) and August 11th (Solar Eclipse at 18º Leo).
Astronomy also dictates that a Solar Eclipse is always going to be a New Moon, and a Lunar Eclipse is always going to be a Full Moon. So, at the period of this Solar Eclipse in the sign of Cancer, both the Sun and the Moon are conjunct, and as the Moon sweeps around in front of the Sun on her orbit, she clips what we see of the rays of the Sun, forming a partial eclipse. This one is going to be visible by those that live in the very south-east of Australia, New Zealand, and Tasmania.
And what the partial Solar Eclipse means for us?
As of this planetary alignment, as well as in particular the momentary interruption of sunlight beaming to Earth, Solar Eclipses are usually regarded as a kind of cosmic reset. They are like super-charged New Moons, with the amplified potential to kick-start something new into being. But, this can also happen without intention, as well as without conscious perception and warning.
Human beings are slaves to habit. They routinely do one particular thing, as they do not have the ability to move or see beyond the horizon. Their sense of foresight is extremely dull, and they tend to work with what they have, rather than with what they could procure.
So, when the Moon stands before the Sun, not permitting us to go further into our comfort zone, we have to move beyond what we are used to, in order to develop ourselves even when we are plunged into a state of despair.
Solar Eclipses also herald new beginnings, and despite what your consciousness must tell you, despite how depressing the situation is, the universe is the largest of them all, and they would know, what to do.
Solar Eclipses give us the chance to venture out, take risks, as well as profit or learn from those risks, as we have nothing to lose. Our area of expertise appears to be submerged under a cloudy sky, with no light, and hence, we don’t have to go beyond our monotony of nature, as that is what human beings are supposed to do.
If you are currently off the mark, if your personal effort to get ahead in life is way out of alignment, this eclipse is going to throw you a curveball: unplanned, as well as surprising and disruptive events frequently happen alongside them.
Such events will seem to rip out the rug from under your feet, in that way turning the world on its head. But, no matter how uneasy and problematic they initially feel, they are always a form of cosmic realignment, course-corrections to jolt you from a sleepy, as well as cruising-through-life-position, back into participation with your purpose.
Every one of us is a creature of rationale, which permits us to fork out different means of survival when one door is closed. So, when the Solar Eclipse closes one door, we don’t have any other option, but to explore some other options. We have to delve into the unknown, as well as the sight of what we want.
As it actually stands, Solar Eclipse darkens our light, so that we could move beyond the illusion of contentment, as well as strive for greater peaks of success. This permits us time to introspect upon ourselves, and know what we really want!
