The 2nd of three summer eclipses hits late on the 21st, with the Cancer New Moon. New Moons are times to plant seeds for the future, yet this Solar Eclipse pushes for a growth spurt you may not have been planning at all! The best laid plans may be scratched or shattered with an eclipse, and this one has much to do with family situations and the place we call home. On the other hand, it's a chance to grab an opportunity, let go of the past, and learn from experience. Sun sign by sign here's how the eclipse is likely to affect you most. If you know you're rising sign, be sure to read that too, and if you're Moon sign happens to be Cancer, expect emotions to be stirred up as a big internal shift occurs this summer.
Cancer is sign of home, family, nurturing, parenting, mothering, security, food, home, and emotions, ruled by the Moon. These areas play a big factor in changes happening this summer. This will be a sensitive time when we are strongly affected by feelings of those around us as well as dealing with our own reactions and emotions. Remember, eclipses are less about planning and not about control at all. They are about adjusting, adapting and offer potential healing and growth, though their suddenness can be shocking and shake up the balance initially.
