Solar Eclipse Energy
Below is an excerpt of a newsletter by my friend Kitty Hatcher. Kitty has an awesome beginning astrology workbook available, The Art of Interpretation: Beginning Astrology Workbook. She pairs her astrology knowledge with tarot cards giving the receiver depth, breath, and application. For those of you who are wanting to make monumental changes and take on new projects in your lives, this eclipse gives you the energetic opportunity. Now might be the time to start working toward your Kin Domain or co-creating a Space of Love.
Solar Eclipse July 21 at 10:35 p.m. EDT (29 Cancer 26)
Visible from Asia and the western Pacific. The eclipse will not be visible from North America.
A solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. This is only possible when the Moon is in the New Moon phase.
The eclipse on July 21 will be the longest total solar eclipse in this century. The next longest total solar eclipse will happen June 13, 2132. Many astrologers believe the length of an eclipse corresponds in years to its astrological influence. If this is so, the influence of this eclipse should last about seven years.
A solar Eclipse acts like a catalyst for new beginnings. Since this eclipse falls on the last degree of Cancer, it suggests we must first let go of emotional stagnation and outdated habit patterns in order to make room for new growth and opportunity.
Projects started and intentions set during the two weeks following a solar eclipse take on added significance. However, it is best not to start a new project on the day of an eclipse because the energy is too new and too intense. Also, important information concerning the project may not yet be available. For most of us, the best days to start new projects after the eclipse will be July 26 or 27.
People most affected by this eclipse are people with planets near twenty-nine degrees of Cancer or Capricorn and everyone born between July 19 - 23, December 20 - 24, April 18 - 22 and September 21 – 25 and areas of the world where the eclipse is most visible.
