Your New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer Horoscope & Mantra, According To Your Zodiac Sign
Can you feel the shift? A brand new journey awaits and the universe is already responding to the collective energies, so make sure to open your heart to the infinite blessings headed your way. This is especially true during this time as we are in the gateway between eclipses, and it’s up to you to walk towards the divine vibration of the highest light. In addition to electric vibration stemming from the summer solstice on June 20 — the longest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere with the sun vibrating at its highest frequency — there will be a new moon solar eclipse in the sentimental sign of Cancer on Sunday, June 21.
Solar and lunar eclipses come in pairs and this is the second eclipse of the month, as the first took place on June 5 in the sign of Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius. The second-to-last eclipse activating the Cancer-Capricorn axis, the new moon solar eclipse in Cancer will be especially potent, and for a number of reasons. As you will remember, new moons bring new beginnings and this fertility is naturally emphasized during a solar eclipse; however, given the eclipse’s close proximity to the summer solstice, there will be something extraordinary about this particular astrological phenomenon. Moreover, there will be five planets retrograding during this solar eclipse — Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto — which means it will more than likely have us reviewing, revisiting, and reflecting on Cancerian-like themes, perhaps until the full moon lunar eclipse in Capricorn on July 5.
In addition to the retrograde planets mentioned above, Neptune will also station retrograde on June 23, which means six planets will play a role in this eclipse story. And though retrograde cycles are an excellent time for reflection, they also tend to bring revealing truths to the light. Sitting at exactly zero degrees of Cancer — which also happens to be a critical degree — this eclipse is referred to as an annular eclipse, as it occurs when the sun and moon align with the Earth; however, the moon is smaller than the sun, which makes the sun appear as a bright ring of fire. This, of course, emphasizes the essence of Cancer, as the moon's dark shadow serves as a representation of the collective rebirth that's about to take place.
I wasn’t kidding when I said this eclipse is especially potent, but there’s more. Cancer season has everything to do with prioritizing your emotional security, and its cardinal waters are here to wash away your fears and burdens, in order for you to create a divine sanctuary within yourself. Having said that, this new moon solar eclipse will also serve as a reminder to practice empathy; it will also shed light on the areas where you need to cultivate compassion, for yourself and the people around you. *Hint: Check which astrological house belongs to zero degrees of Cancer in your birth chart. This is where your new moon solar eclipse story will unfold.*
