The significance of the Solar Eclipse at the June Solstice

art by Robin Mead

I posted a portion of this article on my Facebook page. 

Summer may begin on June 21st in the northern latitudes, and winter for my friends down under, but the June Solstice occurs when the Sun enters Cancer in the tropical zodiac.  This year’s June solstice occurs on June 20, 2020 at 5:43 pm EDT and will be followed shortly thereafter, at 2:41 am EDT on June 21st, by a solar eclipse at the New Moon in Cancer.  For thousands of years, humans have celebrated these solar events, as well as the equinox balance points, as major turning points of the year.  The solstices mark the extremes of the positioning of the Sun relative to the Earth and serve as a portal for the energies of solar conscious to penetrate through the mist of human illusion.

The symbolism of an eclipse is connected to the Nodes of the Moon – points in the sky where the path of the Moon crosses the path of the Sun.  Because the lunar nodes are connected to fate and destiny, eclipses do often have a fated quality and a sense that something in the life is being exposed or released.  At the solar eclipse, the conscious intentional energy of the Sun is blocked by the lunar instincts and deep feelings.  Because the Sun and Moon are both in the emotional sign of Cancer, this focus on feelings and instinctive reactions is heightened even more.  And with Mercury (mind and communication) also in Cancer, our thoughts (Mercury) are flavored with feeling and less objective and rational than we may be comfortable with.

All New Moons, whether an eclipse or not, are a time […]

Thoughts on the astrology of the remainder of 2020

I was asked to create a video for the Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship on the astrology for the remainder of 2020, and I thought that was a great idea in light of how the entire world has changed since I wrote my forecast for 2020.  Here it is for you!  If you like these videos please subscribe to the channel.  Sorry, there is no transcription for this video but I hope you enjoy it anyway. ❤️

Thoughts on Pluto square Eris, January 2020 – October 2021

Eris is a small planet which was discovered in 2003.  Her Roman name was Discordia – she is the goddess who, when not invited to a wedding, began the Trojan War by throwing a golden apple marked “for the fairest” into a circle of goddesses, beginning a dispute that threw Greece into turmoil for ten years.  (Read more about the mythology of Eris here.)  Eris moves very slowly – its orbital cycle is 560 years which is more than twice as long as Pluto’s orbit – so its influence appears to coincide with small, seemingly minor, events which create great chaos and disrupt the status quo.

The symbolism of Eris as the goddess who became angry when she didn’t receive a wedding invitation and retaliated by starting the Trojan War was eerily reflected in the fact that the discovery of Eris correlated to the time when a hanging chad changed the fate of US history and ushered in 20 years of war.  You can see that she’s a wild character under which seemingly random incidents change the course of history.

Uranus in Aries conjoined Eris between 2015 and 2017, and I wrote about that here before Trump was elected.  Uranus and Eris are both disruptors, but where Uranus seeks to disrupt our lives where we have become stuck, Eris seems to disrupt just for the sake of shaking things up to see where everything will land afterwards.  At the time I wrote:

Under this influence (until early 2017), the very fabric of our lives is being shaken and stirred and it will be ever more necessary to find ways to adapt.  The world is changing – we are at […]

Astrological forecast for the week of June 14-21, 2020 including retrogrades and Summer Solstice eclipse

Mercury turns retrograde this week, for a total of five retrograde planets.  With all this retrograde energy will we even notice Mercury turning retrograde?  And what’s up with the eclipse at the Summer Solstice?  There’s a lot going on this week so tune in and learn more.  The transcription is below the video and promo stuff if you prefer to read.

Welcome to another week’s astrological forecast. This week’s forecast is for the week of June 14 to the 21st 2020. I’ll be covering Mercury Retrograde, I’ll be covering the changes of direction of both Neptune and Venus. We’ll be covering the eclipse on the 21st which is going to be quite significant. And I’m sure we’ll talk about it next week but eclipse energies start to build a few days before, four or five days before, so I’d like you to be prepared and ready for that.

I want to start by talking about the retrogrades and I know for some of you who have been listening every week, this is all old hat for you. But this whole year between June and October, the middle of October and probably into November, there are going to be between four and seven retrograde planets. That’s a tremendous number. If you think about the fact that three planets retrograde is an average number, it’s very rare to have no planets retrograde or one planet retrograde. But it’s even more rare to have six and seven planets retrograde which is what we have coming up. Currently we have Venus, Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter all traveling retrograde. […]

Sunday poetry to welcome the morning

In these days of Covid and retrogrades, many of the things which have brought us pleasure and hope in the past are no longer available to us. We are reduced to the small things, the things we have long ago stopped noticing in the haste to accomplish and do and be more than the day before.  The world may be opening back up, but the reality has not changed and our time in quarantine is likely not over.  If Covid is teaching us anything, it is that we must learn how to live within ourselves and be present in each moment.  The future is unknown, and the past is behind us and will not return. 

Welcome Morning

There is joy
in all:
in the hair I brush each morning,
in the Cannon towel, newly washed,
that I rub my body with each morning,
in the chapel of eggs I cook
each morning,
in the outcry from the kettle
that heats my coffee
each morning,
in the spoon and the chair
that cry “hello there, Anne”
each morning,
in the godhead of the table
that I set my silver, plate, cup upon
each morning.

All this is God,
right here in my pea-green house
each morning
and I mean,
though often forget,
to give thanks,
to faint down by the kitchen table
in a prayer of rejoicing
as the holy birds at the kitchen window
peck into their marriage of seeds.

So while I think of it,
let me paint a thank-you on my palm
for this God, this laughter of the morning,
lest it go unspoken.

The Joy that isn’t shared, I’ve heard,
dies young.
