Hello. Happy Moon-day. The new moon was on Sunday, in Cancer, coupled with another Solar Eclipse. I received an eblast from her site, part of the message is below.

Solar Eclipse Message

"Sunday, July 11 at 12:40 PM PDT, there is a major Solar Eclipse! Eclipses are always important turning points/stepping stones into a whole new level of reality, but this one brings unprecedented changes. It is truly about clear endings and exciting new beginnings.

We could have felt pretty spacey in the past few days, forgetting major appointments, having our head in a completely different place than what was required of us to keep our lives on track, we could have experienced body pains and headaches and alternatively increased and lowered energy levels... We were just already in tune with the huge shift of consciousness that is taking the planet by storm.

Our generosity towards others increases. We could be attracted to a whole new group of friends. We are more idealistic and committed to global humanitarian causes. Great fortune is likely to occur. Any endeavor related to corporate money, educational or religious institutions is beneficial. The sudden healing of an illness or an emotional situation that has been creating much grief, could unexpectedly occur as we let go of  deep seated fears and old behavioral patterns that no longer serve us. An unplanned trip could  help us realize long term dreams and completely transform our lives by opening us to a whole new understanding of what is truly important.

It may be interested to remember what happened in our lives around July 11, 1991 and January 9, 2001 when there were eclipses very close to this eclipse at 19º24’ Cancer. What we are now likely to experience is expanding on what happened then.

Love features prominently in this chart. We seek a relationship in which there is a strong soul connection. We could also find ourselves in emotional situations that bring to the surface very strong feelings enabling us to see our wounds and giving us the chance to heal them. We need passion and inspiration and as we learn to balance romance and personal power, we experience the inner marriage of the feminine and the masculine within us, a joining of the Sun and the Earth inside our own being which in turn makes us radiate more light and joy.

I want to add an addendum with the moon on that one too. Moon was new in Cancer and naturally is transiting the week through the zodiac but I'm feeling emotional (Cancer), dramatic (Leo), and picky/critical (Virgo).  We may have moved out of the moon and its Cancerian phase but I think that the energies of the new moon can have a resonating effect (strongly) for three days after the event. Considering it was a solar eclipse... I'm thinking maybe that we should consider this emotional and creative energy of Cancer and it's effect on not only our Sun sign but its lunar path through Leo and Virgo.

In short, I would urge you to feel your emotional self out a little bit and through the emotional intelligence work with that directive you perceive on one of three things: Love, creativity, or domestic issues (home, cleaning, organizing, decorating). Don't get picky with your friends, partners, associates, family members and remember the moon is transiting Leo before moving to Virgo. Do not be a drama queen.

Tarot Weekly

The Sun in Reverse is our card for the week. There is a subtleness to this light, like the late sun in the Northern Hemisphere, bluish in the evening, lacking some of the warmth that we may feel from it as it sets late in the evening. We're not focusing on the setting sun, but the light of that sun in its late stage of the day. There is a similarity in the energy moving through for us at this time, a hint to take some of this emotional energy from the new moon and note with our senses (intuitive / emotional) the light that still remains, focused specifically on matters we were attempting to get a handle on last week (Uranus, 'restlessness, dissatisfaction', with the Chariot's answers). There was a call to take charge of a potential run-away-cart and assert some balance between the inner and outer worlds while the universal energies attempted to stir up some change.

Yeah, fun.

There is resonance of that at work, still. Last weeks pull is shining through in whatever balance that you achieved for yourself. The message may be, as of yet, unrefined, or simple and we may want to dwell on details that we should experience, or be working out creatively "in process" and not mentally, or in abstract.

The Sun (R) is then empowered by two cards, Ace of Cups, and Nine of Pentacles (R).

The emotional / intuitive "attunement" to the message of the Sun (R), highlighted by the Ace of Cups. It's not quite mature but the impulse is there to follow it and if heeded, the subtle light will become more refined. There is also a note about the word used, attunement. This is a chosen word for the lighter realm energy coming through on the wane, there is a special call for healers now and you may find, if you tune into this light, that there will be a few tweaks and adjustments to some of your work. Again, feel it emotionally, not mentally, allow your watery body to vibrate with this subtle transmission and the real inner answer will become clear.

Center at your heart.

This is no time for laziness or think to our self that we can "get to this later". If you mastered the message from the Chariot, the electro-pop that Uranus gave us, then this should only be a matter of a little self-discipline. Get centered. Tune in. Listen. Vibrate. Carry on. Any sense of security that we may feel is missing, will be eclipsed by the inner work you do. On a very minor note, while you are in meditation, ask if there are any people in your life who appears attached to you that could be suckling at the teat of your inactivity. I'm not saying they are "bad folks" but it may behoove you to seek some answer that will allow you to shift the dynamic of your relationship into a more active, healthy, connection that will serve you both. I recommend stepping off the dramatic "black or white" attitude / edge and look at things from the refined light, how can I improve this relationship?

Meditation

Whatever form of meditation that you use, get centered, get relaxed, and go within. When you have achieved your deepened state it may be helpful to integrate some of the following images into your attunement.

  • The Sun low on the horizon. A blue-white, almost snowy ground, sparse, windy. The air is cool, the sun is warm when it touches you. Though it is present, it is distant. The sky is clear, inviting.
  • Clearly there are images and shapes manifesting in the light around the sun, in the sky which is so clear. They are emanating from the sun's light and become clear, when you feel them, on the blue of the sky. You cannot make them out but by feeling the shapes, the lines, the contours, the memory and emotion you evoke, they become clear.
  • Focus on the feeling, after the dance and play of images focus solely on the sun small in the sky of blue. Blue like water, sun like white fire, a beautiful tapestry of images that contain the message for you in the sky. Feel the water in your body tune to that center in the sky, feel the messages you are receiving become emotionally clear.

Contemplate this message first. You may feel an urge to suddenly work on someone else but do not. Generally speaking this is a pull inward and then outward. If after you have emotionally settled on the energy and found your cusp of comfort in this transmission and the information that it stirs within you, then you may find that administering that inner light to others around Wednesday - end of week, to those who are truly in need will fit into the grander design of feeling and attunement.

This is when our inner talents can then shine in the path of service.

I hope that this finds you well.
