your weekend astrology report 2

Saturday, June 20, 2020: The challenge of blending and balancing freedom with security is the crucial element in tonight’s New Moon (11:41 PM 0° Cancer) which is quincunx Saturn in Aquarius. Although caution may be fully embraced here, we are vulnerable to emotional knee-jerk reactions and may be subjected to powerful, rhetorical flourishes that could easily mislead or manipulate. It isn’t that the balance between freedom and security cannot be maintained effectively, only that it will demand our constant attention. Boundaries are important but we must learn what is beyond those boundaries as well. To go beyond — or expand — the boundaries, we must be responsible, self-disciplined, and honest. We must be prepared to listen to alternative viewpoints — viewpoints from those who may be outside of the boundaries of our circle.

The Cancer new moon and annular solar eclipse arrive tonight, and a brand-new beginning is on the way. But first, the moon squares Neptune this morning, and the day starts on a hazy, dreamy note. We’re in deep waning phase, and the dark moon is void-of-course in Gemini. It’s a low-energy day. You’re releasing the past, sifting through memories, reflecting, and, hopefully, tuning in to your inner voice. Record your dreams, and be patient as the fog clears.

The sun enters Cancer this afternoon and the energy shifts from cerebral to emotional. You’re diving into your emotions and feeling sensitive. The Gemini moon squares Mars, bringing a wave of nostalgia or passionate—perhaps painful—emotions to the surface. Consciously release heavier emotions and painful memories or illusions. No matter what the past was like, for better or worse, it’s gone. There is real potential in the present. This is an emptying out before you can birth something new.

The moon enters Cancer late tonight, and then the Cancer new moon and annular solar eclipse align. The sun represents our primary consciousness. As the eclipse aligns, the solar disk is overshadowed and reappears. Similarly, there’s a sense of the lights being turned on in a dark room. We’re seeing things with fresh eyes in the clear light of day.

This is also the beginning of the end of a longer 18-month period of transformation you’ve been in. This is a chance to wipe the slate clean and make a new start in the area of your life ruled by Cancer.

Cancer is a cardinal water sign and the sign that rules mothers, children, nourishment, home, family, and one’s sense of emotional and material security. The energy is extremely fertile. Pay attention to where you feed energy. With time, care, and proper nurturing, the seeds you plant now can grow to sustain not just you but all you care about and generations to follow.

SUNDAY, JUNE 21, 2020: Last night’s New Moon (11:41 PM 0° Cancer) portends a swirl of new activity, insights, and directions. However, we may be more inclined to only seek refuge today. There are numerous indications of a sea change — more of a feeling rather than any definitive turning point. Direct action seems to carry enormous risk so we may feel a hesitancy to move ahead. On the other hand, if we feel that there are threats to be addressed, defending our castle takes on importance. The persistent fog that we have been dealing with since the beginning of the year is beginning to clear but responses to a clearer view will vary considerably and account for today’s cautious protectiveness.

We’re past the Cancer solar eclipse, in a new cycle and rebirthing and planting new seeds. This solar eclipse in Cancer leads to the Capricorn lunar eclipse (the final one of this series), marking the culmination of an 18-month phase of transformation in the areas of your life ruled by Cancer and Capricorn. Look back to what was unfolding in July 2018. Look at how far you’ve come, all you’ve learned, and where you want to go from here.

The newly eclipsed Cancer moon squares Chiron and sextiles Uranus this afternoon, bringing healing, unexpected breakthroughs, fertile opportunities, and a chance to sow and spread your seeds.

As the moon squares Chiron, you’re becoming sharply aware of your wounds. You needn’t walk on eggshells, but people are feeling sensitive, so be gentle with yourself and others. Allow yourself to feel or grieve what you need to, but avoid projection, blaming others, or blaming yourself.

We live and we learn. Awareness can be painful, but it liberates. This is a chance to free yourself from past trauma or a sense of wounding that you feel as you rebirth and move forward.
