Honestly, I know I’ve said a lot over the last few months that all of the moons we have had have been perfect in helping us to learn from and process and rise up into all that has been happening. But the magic of this new moon solar eclipse falling literally hours after we move through the doorway into the second half of the year is nothing short of mind-blowingly magical – this is a new beginning like never before.
You may have felt it this week, or even over the last month, that big shifts and changes are coming. The last few months of 2020 have been A LOT and intense to say the least. But alongside this intensity has come a powerful opportunity to see your life for how it is. To begin to question whether you are moving in the direction you want to go or going after the things you really want or what you actually want from life. To perhaps show you that the way you were living wasn’t working and that there are certain ways or things that you no longer want to go back to doing.
Cancer is the watery sign of emotions so don’t be surprised if you’ve been feeling overly emotional or sensitive these last few days. These emotions are surfacing for a reason, and there is no way to hide under a Cancer moon. Anything and everything you have suppressed, are unwilling to see or hear or address or have been avoiding will come bubbling back up to the surface for you to deal with, learn from and, once and for all, release so that you don’t take it into the second half of 2020 with you. This moon will show you the ways in which you say you want to create change and freedom, to then pull your crab-like shell around yourself to prevent failure or getting hurt, or scuttle away in denial to avoid confrontation. The Cancer moon will help you to see and face up to all of this and move forward into the second half of 2020, despite the doubts and fears that you have previously allowed to hold you back. Not only that but the Cancer moon will also give you the courage and power that you need to make necessary changes so that you can begin to put your own needs first and focus more on self-love and what YOU want out of the rest of 2020. This moon will help you to set boundaries with people who take too much, say no to situations that don’t make you feel comfortable, and walk away from anything that has been uncertain or not serving your bigger picture visions and dreams. This moon will help you to call back your power in any life areas you feel like you have lost it. As eclipses block out the light of the sun they take you into the darkness, but only so that you can clearly see what you have been hiding from and avoiding, all that has been subconsciously keeping you scared, stuck and small. If you’ve been feeling sad, fearful or ruminating over the past these are all the effects of the eclipse. Sit with what is coming up for you, listen, feel and through this you can heal. Eclipses help to reveal the truth about situations and most of all life; they are a huge gift from the universe to help guide you back onto the right path. Especially if you have been struggling to understand and make sense of recent events in you life get still during this eclipse and spend some time alone in the “darkness” - allow it to reveal answers to you and then use these insights to move forwards. Eclipses come along to help you to move forwards and when you add this to the turning point of the year with the solstice and the energy of this intuitive cancer moon helping you to deep dive beneath the surface to your real desires this is a new beginning like no other.
