2019 Cancer New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse
02 July 2019 at 12.16 pm PDT- 3.16 pm EDT- 8.16 pm BST (summer time GMT)
03 July at 3.16 am AWST Perth, Australia- 5.16 am AEST Sydney, NSW, Australia
It was the day before the New Moon ceremony. Snowy Owl and Shooting Star felt strongly the need to visit the Shaman’s Cave to receive his wise guidance. Something told them this would be a very special New Moon. And they were right. As they met with the Shaman he told them this Lunation would see Sister Moon completely cover Grandfather Sun. But he also told them they would have to travel very far south to experience this meeting in the physical.
The next day as the sisters climbed the path to the Star Temple the Winged One called Little Owl was waiting for them. He was Snowy Owl’s Totem guide and when he appeared he always took them on a journey to far off places. When they put on their magic flying capes they followed Little Owl into the sky. He led them in the south direction. As they flew over Mother Earth they saw her in all her beauty. The Great Ocean was to their left and all the meadows, forests, rivers, lakes, and mountains were below. Finally they arrived at their destination. Little Owl had led them to a lake very far south. Grandfather Sun was shining in the west and the calm clear lake waters showed his shimmering reflection. And then it began.
Slowly Sister Moon began to cover the Sun. All became quiet as Luna’s dark face became visible surrounded by Grandfather’s Light. The lake waters showed this magnificent meeting. The day has become night and the Starry Ones appeared twinkling in the twilight. Sister Moon spoke “for the past few Moon cycles you have been letting go of who you are not. The next six Moon cycles beginning now is to discover your inner light and never forget who you really are. The Light you see around me is the Light you radiate out into the world when you are centered in your Sacred Heart. In the far away time the Earth Mother you have just crossed over is in big trouble. Her human kingdom has forgotten to honour and care for her and all her other kingdoms. The time to Return to Love For All is now. This Moon cycle is that doorway as are the six to follow. Once you are connected to your Inner Knowing you will never again question who you are.”
Snowy Owl and Shooting Star watched as Grandfather Sun began to set on the western horizon. He was a brilliant red orb. The whole western sky was deep red. Sister Moon was no longer visible but her message echoed in their hearts. Return to loving kindness and compassion for all. As Little Owl led them home the young women were grateful for that message. They would follow their Inner Knowing and be true to who they were becoming.
The New Moon is at 10 degrees Cancer 38 minutes. It is a Total Solar Eclipse when the Moon completely covers the Sun except for the Rays that radiate around her dark face. It is only visible in the South Pacific Ocean and the southern countries of South America but it will have a profound effect on us all as it influences our journey until the next Solar Eclipse on Dec 26. All of the Animal Totems and Clan Mothers of this Eclipse will be walking with us until then. They of course will join with other guides during the next six Moon cycles but continue to support our journey to the Awakened Self.
Our Animal Totem guide for the Cancer New Moon Eclipse is Flicker Woodpecker who guides us through the transitions travelling the spiritual path creates. Flicker connects us to the Heart Beat of the Earth Mother through his drumming. His gift is All Healing Love. The astrological Earth is in Capricorn (as are the South Node, Saturn, and Pluto, releasing the wounds of the past). Capricorn is guided by Snow Goose who reminds us to follow our dreams and visions. They are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere. These Totems will also guide us at the Next New Moon Eclipse on Dec 26 which is at 04 degrees Capricorn. Embrace their Medicine for healing and freedom.
The Clan Mother who guides us for Cancer is Loves All Things. She is the mother of unconditional love and teaches us to forgive, ourselves and others, so we may express Loving Kindness in all our encounters. She teaches us how to Love the Truth. For Capricorn it is Talks With Relations who guides us. She is the keeper of the Earth’s needs and the Mother of the Planetary Family. She teaches us to have kinship with all life forms and how to enter the Sacred Space of others with respect. She teaches us how to Learn the Truth. More of their Medicine stories can be found in The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams. These Clan Mothers will continue to walk with us until July 2020 because of the Eclipse cycles in Cancer/Capricorn. Companions along the way.
Including the planetary dance the Cancer New Moon is ruled by the Moon. The focus is on our roots, family of origin, and emotional wellbeing. Chiron at 05 degrees Aries (healing the wounds of the child) is square (motivation for change) the Sun/Moon and Earth. Chiron supports us to heal the Wounded Child and become the I Am Self. Uranus at 05 degrees Taurus is travelling with Vesta at 09 degrees Taurus. They are supporting us to become empowered as we walk our spiritual destiny path. They are sextile the Cancer New Moon (easy opportunities we create for ourselves) and trine the Earth in Capricorn (removal of obstacles along the way). The gift from Uranus is to break through to our authentic selves. Pallus Athene, the Goddess of Wisdom, is at 13 degrees Libra (inner balance) and creates a Cardinal Grand Cross with the Cancer and Capricorn planets. She is square the latter and opposite Chiron. It is the opportunity to break out of whatever box we are in.
Jupiter is in his exaltation (enhanced strength) when he visits the sign of Cancer so I consider him the spiritual guide for this Cancer New Moon. He is currently retrograde at 16 degrees Sagittarius (revising our spiritual vision) and square (finding new ways of looking at things) Neptune Rx at 18 degrees Pisces (illusion or illumination). Neptune is the Soul centered ruler of Cancer. This square began in January this year and is with us until the end of September. The question to be asked “what is true and what is not true”. The real question is “what is my truth”. Jupiter and Neptune are in a Fourth Quarter Square. The theme is revision and realignment of our truth.
I also want to include Venus. She is at 28 degrees Gemini and although she seems to be standing alone (not connected by aspect to the other planets) she is aligned with Polaris, the North Star at 28 degrees Gemini Celestial Longitude. Venus is in her Soul Centered home in Gemini. She is the harmonizer of the Universe here and ask us to UNITE IN LOVE. Polaris is the Star that guides us to find our way home to our true self.
