As the sun moved into the sign of Cancer on June 20, 2020 (9:45 pm UT), the moon was just starting to align to form a new moon and culminate into a solar eclipse nine hours later. In the US, this particular Sunday is celebrated as Father's Day. Celebration aside, there are so many factors in combination with this new moon/solar eclipse that speak to change, transition, awakening, or 'all-out woke-ness.' The eclipse occurring in the zero degrees of Cancer speaks to family, emotionality, and childhood memories. For all intents and purposes, the solstice chart and the eclipse chart, are one and the same. As such, it is recommended that you read the eclipse report on the Cancer Solar Eclipse to get the general theme of this Season.

The Solstice (Summer for Northern Hemisphere/Winter for Southern) is the peak declination of the Sun to the Tropic of Cancer. Yes, there is a Tropic of Capricorn in the Southern Hemisphere for the other Solstice of the year.

Rather than make the full out solstice report at this time, let's focus on ways to navigate through this period given the messages from the Planets.

The strengths we will have for this season actually come in the form of the Moon, which rules over Cancer as it joined up with the Sun. Learning how the speak the truth at the opportune time is important for helping to find healing. All too often, our Moon placements will encourage us to stay silent. But this time, it is appropriate to speak with honesty and sincerity. Not that flippant spiteful stuff. But, the real truth. The truth that comes from the core. The truth we knew as children. The sensitivity that helps us to understand.

Mercury's retrograde motion in Cancer, along with Venus's retrograde motion in Gemini are pushing us to re-examine what we perceive as truth. We are expected to revisit events that perhaps didn't pan out too well, the first time. Or, events we didn't realize has some problems at their onset. Don't be too hasty to shrug off these messages as 'just the retrograde' as there is hidden meaning trying to help us to find the truth that the Moon is attempting to speak.

This should give us a good running start to this season's Solstice. It's the new season that can reward us with new perspectives and new awareness if we choose to step up to the challenge it is issuing to us at this moment.

Be well,

The Lunar Eclipse and the Solar Eclipse

Lunar eclipses and solar eclipses happen in pairs or trios, or on a very rare occasion, as a quartet. In any given 350(ish) day period, there will be two sets of eclipses that belong in an 'eclipse family' also known as a nodal family. Learn more about eclipses and when the next set of eclipses will occur in the Lunar and Solar Eclipses piece.

Definitions:

Apogee: point in the Moon's orbit when it is farthest from Earth.

Conjunction: Occurs when two or more bodies appear close together in the sky.

Elongation: is the apparent angular separation of an object from the Sun. Greatest elongation is best for viewing as it is at it's highest point above the horizon.

Astronomy Calendar Of Celestial Events 2020 - Sea And Sky

Inferior conjunction: When planet Mercury or Venus pass between the Sun and the Earth.

Occultation: Passage of one object in front of a smaller one, thus obscuring all or part of the background object from view.

Opposition: When a planet farther from the Sun than Earth appears opposite the Sun in the sky. This is the best time to observe a planet as it is closet to the Earth.

Perigee: point in the Moon's orbit when it is nearest to Earth.

Stationary: Object appears motionless in the sky due to the turning point between its direct and retrograde motion.

Planet Alignment 2021

Blue moon: Second full moon to occur in a calendar month.
