Solar Eclipse June 21, 2020 - Freedom Vs Restrictions

Solar Eclipse June 21, 2020 - Freedom Vs Restrictions

The Cancer new moon on June 21, 2020, is an annular solar eclipse. The solar eclipse June 2020 astrology is influenced by the planet Saturn which causes an imbalance between personal freedom and responsibility, between self-expression and restriction.

The new moon June 2020 solar eclipse joins a star that gives initiative and enthusiasm, but also a tendency toward pleasure-seeking, impulsiveness, and recklessness. So this is an eclipse phase for a patient, cautious and responsible attitude. But flexibility and open-mindedness are also needed as you adapt to changes in the level of restrictions in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Solar Eclipse Meaning

A solar eclipse is just like a regular new moon where the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun. However, a solar eclipse is more powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun. Solar Eclipse June 2020 is an annular solar eclipse so not all of the Sun will be darkened. In this type of partial eclipse, the apparent diameter of the Moon is smaller than the Sun’s, leaving a ring of light around the eclipsed Sun.

The strongest and most important aspect of astrology is Sun conjunct Moon. It means all possibilities are on the table and you can rightly put yourself at the forefront of new plans for the future. This is the ideal time to make a fresh start, so write your new goals on paper. Question your old habits and behaviors as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

Solar Eclipse June 2020 Astrology

Thew new moon June 2020 solar eclipse at 00°21′ Cancer makes just one significant planetary aspect as shown in the chart below. Although a solar eclipse quincunx Saturn may be termed a minor aspect, it is an important influence in this case because the aspect orb is only 0°19′.

So balancing personal freedoms against responsibility and restrictions is a major theme for this eclipse. A fixed star at 00°11′ Cancer also has an effect on this solar eclipse. A strong influence with an orb of only 0°10′.

Solar eclipse quincunx Saturn creates an imbalance between what you want to do and what you have to do. Your freedom or self-expression may be hampered by certain restrictions and obligations.

The mix of freedom versus restriction is likely to change during this eclipse phase. So it is important to be flexible, adaptable, and open-minded as you adjusting to greater or fewer responsibilities or barriers to progress. Hard work, patience, self-restraint, and self-discipline are also needed.

You may have to take the time off work because of an illness or to look after a sick family member. As a result, your career may suffer. On the other hand, extra responsibilities may be placed on you at work that means you have to miss out on something important in your personal life.

Feeling constantly torn between competing responsibilities can also lead to increasing tension. In extreme cases, it may all seem like too much to bear, or overwork could lead to physical exhaustion or illness.

Trying to find a compromise is difficult but even minor adjustments may restore balance. Avoid wasting valuable time by procrastinating. Take one thing at a time and focus on your most important responsibility first.

Solar Eclipse Stars

There are three major fixed stars within orb of solar eclipse June 2020, technically. But the list below shows that Menkalinan is far closer by degree than Betelgeuse and Polaris.

  • 28 ♊ 50 – α Ursae Minoris, Polaris
  • 29 ♊ 01 – α Orionis, Betelgeuse
  • 00 ♋ 11 – β Aurigae, Mekalinan
  • 00 ♋ 21 – Solar Eclipse June 2020

Mekalinan on the left shoulder of the Charioteer (Auriga Constellation) gives great initiative, high enterprise, and enthusiasm. [1] But caution and objective second thoughts are needed because of impulsive, reckless, combative, and destructive nature. [2]

It may cause ruin, disgrace, and a violent death because of excess pleasure-seeking. [3] Only when really in good aspect is this fixed star rated as a positive acting one. Badly positioned, this star will be most unhelpful. [4]

Solar Eclipse June 2020 Summary

The major theme of the June 21 solar eclipse is balancing your personal freedom and self-expression, with changing levels of restrictions and responsibilities. To avoid increasing tension, flexibility and adaptability are needed.

The fixed star gives enthusiasm and initiative but also a tendency toward pleasure-seeking, impulsiveness, and recklessness. This stresses the need implied by Saturn, for a patient, cautious and responsible approach to new personal freedoms or new restrictions, especially in relation to the coronavirus pandemic.

For the next two weeks, the June 21 solar eclipse themes will complement the themes of the June 5 lunar eclipse (impatience, sexual frustration, and lack of self-control). Then, it will complement the themes of the July 5 lunar eclipse, through until the November 30, 2020 lunar eclipse.
