ATMann’s June Cancer Solar Eclipse and Summer Solstice Astrology Newsletter
Listen to a recording of this newsletter
The 21 June Cancer New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse coincides with the Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere at 00˚ Cancer at 2:42 AM EDT. This is the second of the series of three eclipses in sequence, leading up to the Lunar Eclipse on 5 July. Since eclipses indicate unusual and potent times, this one is almost certainly a turning point, especially since it also triggers the entrance of the Sun into Cancer. Expect emotions to run high, feelings shifting and changing, and it is also a time to seed new activities and projects, particularly those that break new territory and with whom you have a strong and deep emotional connection.
A possible counter connection is that Mercury is now retrograding in Cancer, and therefore it is a good time to edit our lives, to cross-check what we are intending to do versus what is possible, and to be a bit more analytical about issues that are highly emotional. It is also a good time to clean and clear unnecessary clutter in our outer and inner lives.
The closest aspect to the eclipse is the quincunx to demanding Saturn, retrograde at 0˚ Aquarius, and continuing back into Capricorn to rejoin Pluto and Jupiter, so we can expect to experience frustration between our ideas about current issues and the practical and realistic grounding necessary now, due to the many retrograde outer planets that tend to recapitulate prior influences. Although many desire an opening up of our pandemic world, it is unlikely to be a good idea at this point, so move ahead slowly and utilize your good senses.
Jupiter and Pluto are both still conjunct and retrograde in Capricorn, which means that world affairs are still in a disruptive situation, which necessitates care and caution, although world affairs are also likely to be exaggerated and alarming, especially as the Mars/Neptune conjunct in Pisces are in a close sextile to this pair, bringing a greater chance of infectious tendencies, which I have already mentioned as a distinct possibility now. Mars tends to public outcries, confrontations and a continuation of Black Lives Matter and issues with police violence, particularly as Neptune tends to avoid accountability, especially as Neptune joins the other outers in going stationary retrograde on 24 June, while Mars exaggerates it. And while Mars is not very happy in Pisces, it does square the Nodal axis that is now in Gemini and Sagittarius for the next 1.5 years. This will be a time of further negotiations between short term conflict and longer view philosophies able to understand the larger picture. It certainly isn’t the time for the short-sighted.
The storyteller of our woundedness Chiron is in rash and restless Aries, which can bring energy to new projects and initiation of original information that can heal and cure our inner turmoil if we allow it, and if further energized by its sextile to individualist Uranus in stable Taurus, which could be telling us to return to nature, to continue to support Gaia and the feminine and all those who suffer under patriarchal conservatism. And Venus goes stationary direct on 25 June, bringing an influx of love and care back into our lives, so we should continue to respect our earth and nature, our two greatest healers.
On 22 June at 6PM EDT, my friend Georgina Langdale, a superb energy worker, shaman and creative herbalist from New Zealand will begin a series of events for the Alchemist’s Kitchen Online in New York with a talk on “Reset: A Renaissance Guide to the New Normal.” In this session, she will step back five hundred years, to another era of pandemic, to gain insights into the thinking of two great Renaissance minds, Marsilio Ficino and the alchemist, physician and philosopher Paracelsus, and contemplate how you can apply their philosophy to today’s world. There is a link in the box below in case you wish to participate in this important event which is only $10.
In a similar dynamic, I will be starting a series of ten Tuesday evening events also for The Alchemist’s Kitchen on “A New Vision of Astrology,” primarily oriented to the fact that astrology is not just about psychology, but also integrates body and mind through the medium of energy and natural healing, and that healers, herbalists and others can benefit from understanding our life in time, and understanding how our conception and gestation are essential aspects of our life journey. I will publish more information in my next newsletter as my talks will begin on 21 July.
I also wish to announce that a great and affordable astrology software program AstroGold for Mac will shortly include my Life*Time Arcs, dates in your life from conception to old age, and their programs use my King Scale of color as an option as well. It is integrated with AstroGold for IOS, so through the iCloud the programs are synched. I thank Stephanie Johnson of esotech.com.au for including my work in her program.
In the meantime, I am a work-at-home hermit anyway, and therefore am available for readings if you are interested or need some support in this difficult time. Please be in touch with me for an appointment. I am available for readings of all kinds, including Life Time readings, Yearly Updates with the new graphic format I am beginning to use, Partnerships, and affordable Mandala Astrological Tarot readings small or elaborate….. and I will try to help you find our way through the current strange times.
All the best, be safe, act sensibly, eat well, and be well, and always love,
