The June 20/21 Solar Eclipse

The June 20/21 Solar Eclipse

Today, Saturday June 20th at 11:41 PM PDT/ Sunday June 21st at 2:41 AM, we are blessed with the 2nd of the 3 eclipses of this lunar month. The last time we had 3 eclipses back to back was in July-August 2018. The next time, will be in June-July 2029.

The reason why this eclipse is called "Ring of Fire" is because the Sun disk will be perfectly encircling the Moon with its light. This, however, will only be visible to those of you living in Northern India, Southern Pakistan, China and some parts of Africa.

Another particularity of this Solar Eclipse is that within 39 minutes, it coincides almost exactly with the Summer Solstice aka as the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere, when the Sun enters Cancer. The last time this happened was in June 2001, exactly 19 years ago.

And all this while we are happily experiencing 5 retrograde planets, including Mercury in Cancer (June 18- July 11)! Even though a planet seemingly going backwards in the sky against the fabric of the fixed stars is an optical illusion due to the respective velocities of the various planets, in astrology, it is very meaningful. Retrogrades always ask us to remember projects we had forgotten. They can make us change our minds, old situations could return, we are likely to be contacted by people we hadn't heard from in a very long time. They force us to reflect on our lives, bring home consequences of our actions, and slow down the pace of life.

The solstice (summer in the Northern hemisphere, winter in the Southern half of the Earth), marks the longest (or shortest) day of the year. For us, in the US, Canada and Europe, light is at its fullest, an incentive to let go of all that no longer serves our highest good, and an invitation to honor our own power, stand in integrity and walk our talk.

Eclipses always mark times of great transformation. On a personal level, the house (area of our life) they occur in, in our natal chart (picture of the heavens when we were born, our life blueprint), indicates where things will dramatically shift, whether we are ready for it or not! The effects of those transformations are felt for the following 19 years. Today and tomorrow, we should be extra careful and watch what we say, sign or let go of, as these decisions tend to be irreversible. We should also pay particular attention to our dreams which will be more meaningful than usual.

The breaking down of old structures continues. This second eclipse asks us primarily to find the balance between freedom and responsibility, and accept restrictions without curbing our self-expression.

This eclipse awakens a deep need for social change, a strong desire to fight against injustices and work outside normal channels. The suppression of some basic rights could lead to violent reactions in the form of confrontations with authority figures.

Blaming others or circumstances for our own disillusionment is not the answer. Having unrealistic expectations, being obsessed with our own ideas, becoming fanatical, impatient and aggressive can be tempting, yet, is not the wisest approach to the challenges we face. Conflicts could be unusually upsetting, leaving long lasting scars.

We could easily fall prey to our feelings, lack objectivity and think and speak with emotion rather than with logic. A certain restlessness, could make us so focused on what we want that we could pay very little attention to what others say. Yet, success comes from being accommodating towards their needs.

More than ever should we surround ourselves with warm, sympathetic, positive people, eat healthy foods, channel our creativity into artistic, spiritual or philanthropic pursuits, and trust our intuition. In the face of adversity, let us be like water. Finding alternative ways of expressing ourselves peacefully, with energy, integrity, faith and confidence helps us discover new ideas. It is essential that we develop a healthy respect for ourselves based on realistic expectations, and find creative ways of manifesting our unique talents and individuality.

Our relationships play an essential role in our accomplishments. Our sensitivity and empathy towards the suffering of others is particularly strong. On a global level, assisting those who are in pain, helps us ease our own wounds. On a personal level, any intimate connection that is not balanced and harmonious, needs to be transformed. Sometimes walking away and resolutely turning our back to the past, is the only way to find peace.

The challenge in this new normal is to find an inner balance. Willingly accepting our responsibilities helps us rise above limitations. Thinking out of the box and developing a different attitude, open creative new doors. The more we seek knowledge, through travel, or the study of philosophy and religion, the more we gain the respect of others thanks to the wisdom developed in our own lives.

Wishing you a wonderful Solar Eclipse!
