July’s Solar Eclipse: A Turning Point


The solar eclipse in Cancer on July 11 marks a turning point after the incredible energy of June. Although the pace of change (personal and global) continues to be incredibly intense, the Cancer eclipse leaves us with a better idea of where we stand and what we need to do next. Let’s use the second half of the month to ground our spiritual energy in the Earth experience. Mother Nature wants to help, but we have to make time and create mental space to tune in and listen.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…It’s as if you’ve been trapped in an ice storm for months, and now the ice is melting all around you. Liberating, exhilarating and dangerous are all words that come to mind. Opportunity is everywhere now, but you must be flexible. The solar eclipse challenges you to do a complete personality upgrade and think further outside the box than you ever have.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…You could spend more money and make more money this month than almost ever before. Your challenge now is to think big while minding the details. Your spiritual life is on fire right now; if you can channel all that power into your day-to-day process, you could experience a major breakthrough in creating wealth this month.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…Don’t waste this time. You may not know exactly where you’re going, but you know what you don’t want in your life anymore. So dump the dead weight and start moving in a direction that feels good. Money energy is great this month, so make hay while the sun shines and save up – you’ll feel like spending in August.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Open yourself to the one relationship that’s missing in your life. This might involve doing some serious releasing of past disappointments and inherited negative beliefs about what you deserve. The solar eclipse challenges you to take the next step forward in your life’s work. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a partner who gets it?

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…You continue on this incredible run of career energy. A funny thing happened on the way to the penthouse office, though – it looks as though you’ve found a magnificent obsession that promises (threatens?) to unite your spiritual and material desires. Wow. What if you could follow your heart all the way to the bank?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…You possess an ability to focus on the details of your life’s work that can only be described as ferocious. At the same time, your passion and creativity are at an all-time high. If you can get both sides of yourself working together even half the time, you’re likely to set the world on fire this month.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…Let’s not forget that you’ll never live through a time like this again. The key to regaining your balance is in letting go of who you thought you were. You are a process – Divine energy in constant flux. Drop the mask, because you can’t take that old static stuff with you. The more flexible you become, the more wealth you attract.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…More than ever, being of service is emphasized. You can do many things well, so look for the intersection of what you enjoy and what so many people lack. Enjoy meeting a consistent need and you won’t have to worry about money. P.S. Quality people want to team up with you and turn your work into play.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…You’re usually Mr. Nice Guy, but beware of a tendency to push others too hard this month. Focus on your creativity; the solar eclipse in Cancer brings a stunning new opportunity to work with people who actually know what they’re doing and can help you reach a wider audience. Be ready with your product or service.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Even though you’re feeling like busting down the walls and fighting the power, force yourself to take a long-term view now. Channel all that passion into meaningful work and the big picture of your life will take care of itself. Some of you may suddenly decide to move closer to where the action is as a result of the solar eclipse.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…Jupiter and Uranus are opening up your psychic abilities in potentially shocking ways, so it’s important to stay grounded. Get out in Nature, move your body, feel. After July 21, true romance may become available for the first time in a while as Saturn finally exits your 5th House. Know what you want, because you just might get it.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…This year’s eclipses are all about money for you. Be willing to let go of a job or client that is keeping you trapped in futility; someone in your social or professional network has leads and connections for you. Part of the solution is moving past your parents’ beliefs about money and claiming what you want.
