The Solar Eclipse today occurs in your sign, dear Cancer, and it helps pave the way towards significant personal changes in the coming weeks and even months.

You are exploring your independence, and it’s a period for reinventing yourself in some personal way, such as with a new look or manner of expressing and presenting yourself.

Circumstances can prompt a rethinking of your general attitude towards new beginnings, bravery, your role as a leader, your independence, and your instinctive responses and defense mechanisms.

This is a time when you can be braver and enjoy new experiences. There can be a tendency to dig in your heels and display your independence now, which may be necessary for personal growth, but care should be taken to stay true to yourself in the process.

Get in touch with what you genuinely want, envision it, and go for it, but wait for the dust to settle before moving personal plans forward. Keep in mind, too, that eclipses can seem to wipe us out energetically speaking before refueling us.

You’re undergoing a process of molting out of your old confines. The Solar Eclipse rocks your own sign and your 1st House of Self, prompting you to reconnect with your center and discard any outworn forms of expression.

Whenever you leave your old shell for a new one, there is a period of necessary vulnerability.

However, once you grow into the new shell, you experience an expansiveness that makes the stress worthwhile. Take the risk of temporary uncertainty to improve your circumstances. Transformation is key to your evolution.

Today’s New Moon is an ordinary event that is set to have extraordinary consequences. Ordinary, because 11 days into your birthday month and new solar year, this is the New Moon that always gives you a chance to commit to your new solar year, the future and the journey ahead.

Yet extraordinary because this is not just an eclipsing New Moon but a total solar eclipse and the most powerful New Moon in Cancer in two decades. This has the power to open new doors where you didn’t even realise there were any, with life opening up in a major new way.

Today’s Quote: “We could never learn to be brave & patient, if there were only joys in the world.”
