New Moon Eclipse in Cancer, 4:41:38 pm, 21st!
New Moon eclipse at 0 deg Cancer, also falls on the Solstice (Sun’s ingress into Cancer and the longest day of the year). This is a new beginning with a lot of energy. It’s an eclipse, a wild card energy, I would put off any planned new beginnings as you would normally do with a new moon, eclipses are kinda doing it for you. Like I said it’s the wild card and it’s unknown, only the cosmos or universe knows. It’s the 2nd in 3 eclipse, and you never really know what this change is about and may not really know for sure to start off with, it can take up to 6 months for you to see or be in the change. Saturn is timing as well, patience, endurance and discipline maybe your greatest allies at this time to whatever is happening in your life, with this you find strength within(spiritual).
It’s in the sign of Cancer areas of home, family, safety, security, comfort, food and emotional needs. I also see cancer as the most inner private emotional self (heart), will play apart for this highly energized eclipse.
Saturn in Aquarius is in a quincunx or inconjunct to this eclipse, a quincunx is incompatible connection it’s difficult to understand and adjustments are needed, somehow the connection needs to be integrated. We all know Saturn restricts, limits, slows you down plus it’s rules or authority. It may be a slow start, a holding back of emotions or needs, for some it’s being cautious about a new start. Integrating what you need or want (Sun/Moon) and what you have to do (Saturn) – Freedom & Restrictions, this is why it’s best to be patient, persevere, be responsible.
With 5 planet Rx, nothing is moving fast, more about the inner journey, pausing, proceeding slowly and going over areas again, doing the past before you can do the future. Venus goes direct on the 25th, here some of what you want or need may start to be addressed.
Like always go check out your own birth chart for more information about where this will impact you the most.
Blessing under this Eclipse and Solstice.
This new moon in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius, brings in tension, an edge to the energy, it may involve a new set of rules or responsibilities, feelings of frustration around delays or restriction comes with it. It’s a waiting game while trying to manifest this new start (it’s about the long term changes) under this Taurus new moon be patient, dig in and do what you have to do, be resourceful and use the resource you have while you wait.
Don’t over complicate it, (even though it’s all too complicated), keep it simple as much as you can. It’s all about the waiting and what you do in that time. Do the Taurus thing go slow, be steady and sturdy, eat the food you love, sleep, pamper, nourish and nurture yourself, and while you have the time, go look at what really matters to you, what really do you value(Taurus) in areas of money, love, where you put your thoughts, time and energy. Don’t waste your time or energy on things that know longer bring you joy, value and real meaning to your life. You don’t want to use your future energy up now on things that no longer bring value or joy. Plus what do you want to take into the future with you?
Sun and Moon both meet up with Uranus after the new moon, this can bring in some form of liberation around restriction, a burst of energy or information that lightens things up. It is Uranus so it can be delivered quickly or jarring and maybe a surprise, so just watch out for this. Remember to stay grounded and keep it real.
Saturn rewards all the hard work that you do, but you are going to have to wait for the solid, secure, structure(Taurus) to be put in place. You may find the Taurus season of April-May things solidify. It’s a start, now you patiently wait.
MARS conjunct JUPITER, MERCURY square CHIRON.
A new cycle begins with Mars/Jupiter connecting, you have a spirit, motivation and energy for change, to take action and expand on life. Opportunity and possibilities are here, if so…. act now. It’s happening in the sign of Scorpio, go boldly forward, dig deep, take yourself to new deeper depths of your emotions, commitments. You want some intensity, personal power, intimacy and deeper bonding in your life for some major transformation to take place.
Passions and courage are strong, you have an attitude for change and you feel like you can achieve it.
Just watch out for the rough edge of this, Jupiter urges Mars on, to go big, go hard, you can overdo it and that, takes you to a whole other level of change, which you may not really want to go.
Work with the sextile to the Sun, Venus, Pluto all in Capricorn, have structure, goals, rules, stay grounded and steady in the urge for more.
Mercury and Chiron are squaring off while all this is happening, thoughts, communication or your mind and how you process/think about things may be causing you problems and pokes the sensitive spot again, so watch out for all Mercury themed things.

Sun in Virgo.
The 8 of coins, is a work card, about the work you do, this can be creative work, something you love to do, not just about the work or your job.
With this week use your work or what you are doing as way to connect with the higher part of you. Allow spirit to grace you along the way. Take the slow and steady approach. Keep your mind in the present, so the worry and anxiety about past and future can leave, that’s when manifestation can start to happen.
Do your work, focus on what you are doing, stay in the present moment. Use this time to be meditative, lose yourself in it, so spirit and the divine can come work through you. If you feel that your projects or work is taking too long to manifest in the way you would like, also know that things do manifest in their own time, that’s spirit’s work, you do have to show up for it through, hand in hand you go.
Do your work, take pride in your craft, just do one thing at a time, then sit back and trust.
It’s with love, care, nourishment, tending to it, this is how it will grow, have your heart in it, have patience with yourself and your work/craft.

This weeks card is the King of Coins.
Stability-security-endings and beginnings-mastery
The King has reached his peak, in some area of his/her life, you have mastered a task or project, and now is the time to move on or beyond this, to look further into the future, even if it is unknown. He is also about taking the initiative, making decision to make some changes.
You have overcome many things and have worked hard at applying your skills of self-discipline, logic and being practical in your approach. Also being very, in the here and now, working with the rhythms of your body and nature, listening to your feelings and emotions. This is how this king masters the elements.
This king comes along to tell you that you have reached a level of success or achievement in areas of money, work, career, goals. He is practical, steadfast and ambitious to achieve his goals and he does this by working hard, being present, strong, and knowing what he wants. And this is what makes the King successful in all that he does.
The past is behind you and the future awaits.
To me he is also a smaller version of the Emperor, in his power, in charge of his world.

This weeks card is the 4 f coins or pentacles.
earth element, stability, safety, security, money, work, home, possessions, body and senses, the material realm.
Four of coins is a tricky cards, it deals with building, power, stability, security and the flip side of that is, are you holding on to tightly, to rigid, fearful of change and growth, allowing nothing else to come your way. This is a question you ask yourself with the 4 of coins. What once was giving you security is perhaps no longer needed? Keep in mind that this could also be about and attitude, beliefs, emotions, not just money, work, the physical, material world.
Living in a world of limits, physically and emotionally?
You have worked hard at getting to this place in your financial, material, world, you have also worked hard on your internal, emotional place, building on giving you a solid foundation. Your internal base is good. You have found the stability within you. Keep building on and from this point of structure, don’t build yourself in, get stuck or stay the same.
The next phase of the 4 of coins is to let go, move on, open up a little.
