Sweeping World Changes and the Solar Eclipse of June 21st 2020

The year started with a Lunar Eclipse in Cancer and it’s themes will be carried out for many months. Among the six eclipses of 2020, the one that is sure to make the greatest impact on world events and the economy is the solar eclipse on June 21st, coinciding with the Solstice. This eclipse occurs at zero degrees of Cancer, which is one of the critical degrees falling in a cardinal sign. This alone gives it a special importance but there are several other factors that amplify its effects. It occurs just over a month after the North Node’s shift from Cancer into Gemini and because the North Lunar Node moves backward instead of forward into a sign, at 29 degrees it is just one degree away from the eclipse. These two signs share certain similarities but are overall quite different in expression, so there will be much crossover in how their various qualities emerge.

The last eclipse at zero degrees of Cancer occurred on June 21st 2001 and it made a conjunction to the North Node in Cancer. Often, the effect of an eclipse is carried out over several months or years and is triggered by transiting planets. This eclipse preceded the violent events that went down in Manhattan, New York on September 11, 2001 and a whole series of lies and deceit revolving around terrorism used to manipulate the masses. The efforts to restore homeland security was the focus then and is yet again, in ever-increasingly invasive ways. From full body scanners at the airport to facial recognition screens in the unexpected places, social media data mining platforms, spying smart phones, random drones, and cameras hidden on every big city sidewalk, we live in a world where so-called safety is prioritized over both privacy and adventure. Everyone must obey the rules or be punished by unelected government.

Eclipses that occur more than once at a critical cardinal degree, especially this same exact degree during a single century is seen as rare. The one before 2001 occurred on December 22nd of 1889 at zero degrees of the cardinal sign Capricorn. This sign, which has featured so prominently in the past year and a half is related to politics, industry, hard labor and large displays of power. The eclipse of 1889 was a forerunner to a major plummet of financial affairs, the stock market, and employment rates. The South Lunar Node influenced that eclipse and so much was lost and destroyed but eventually made way for new growth.

During the eclipse on June 21st of 2001 and the upcoming eclipse of June 21st 2020 the North Node was and will be a strong influence, which will clear things out of our way but bring significant new beginnings on a collective level and in our individual lives. Many of these changes are already visible and underway. Those who will experience some of the strongest effects of this eclipse have personal planets between 25-29 degrees of any mutable signs – Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces, or between 0 and 5 degrees of any cardinal signs – Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn. This eclipse falls in home-based and emotional Cancer but there is also a restless, Gemini feel to it. Gemini’s ruling planet Mercury will be Retrograde in Cancer and Venus will also be Retrograde in Gemini. There is some intense mental shifting and reckoning indicated by these transits.

Just as the one in June of 2001, this eclipse is going to hit the natal chart of the USA in a particularly strong way. During June 2001 both the Venus and Jupiter positions of the US were activated. This brought the focus onto both finances and racial conflicts, particularly with the Middle East. Saturn was coming into a conjunction with US placement of Uranus in Gemini, bringing some hard lessons around what it means to be a “free nation”.

On June 21st 2020 we can expect big events and big news with both Jupiter and Pluto forming an opposition to the US’s Mercury Retrograde in Cancer. Again, Venus and Jupiter are being activated. Venus rules money and Jupiter rules expansion and law. With all this water sign energy there could be an expansion in or awareness of maritime law. I do hope that more people become aware of rather than continuously duped by laws that they don’t understand – laws made under the guise of providing security but actually do nothing more than ensure our slavery. Thanks to our remaining free speech rights there are many who are providing education about this subject on the Internet.

Saturn will be Retrograde at zero degrees of Aquarius forming an inconjunct aspect to the Eclipse. This is another signal that there are some radical changes on the horizon that will usher in a new breed of humanity and probably also create as much separation between groups as there will be bonding across the globe. Many of these changes will become more visible during the last eclipse of the year on December 14th and the Great Conjunction on December 21st 2020, and especially in the year 2021.

In 2020, the Lunar Node polarities of Cancer and Capricorn are emphasized until midway through the year when the focus begins to shift into Gemini and Sagittarius. The eclipse of June 21st will be a marker of this shift. From building foundations to increased transportation, things could easily become overstimulating and scattered, which makes people the perfect victims for mind control. That’s only if they are not paying attention and do not have an appropriate sense of earthly boundaries.

The Good and Bad possible scenarios to look for around this Solar Eclipse are:

  • Major relocations (from one home or nation to another)
  • Attacks on the USA
  • White house scandals
  • Increased security checks in public locations
  • Large-scale financial losses and/or windfalls
  • Protection or the lack thereof of the vulnerable, young, old, weak, etc.
  • Water disasters, water-based attacks and earthquakes
  • Water as a precious commodity
  • Shocking events in North Korea (their Uranus gets activated)
  • Ongoing case for illegal settlements in Middle East (Saturn activated in Palestine’s chart)
  • Corruption of bankers globally exposed
  • Families disconnect or reconnect
  • A rise in home businesses and small family-run businesses

Security or Sovereignty

This eclipse will affect everyone in some way, shape or form, to a greater or lesser degree. It will emphasize a new cycle that is underway in each of our lives. Cancer is a water sign ruled by the Moon and therefore it points toward those things pertaining to this sign which include having a solid home base to operate from, deep emotional processes, inner and outer security, relations with the public, mothering and motherhood, loyalty to people or causes, and a sense of belonging.

In a general sense, with this eclipse and the transits to follow it will become obvious whether security or sovereignty is what most people on this planet desire. The sign of Cancer is a catalyst for creating greater security in some area of life, according to the house it falls in in our natal charts and any planets being aspected. This does not just mean external security but includes a deep kind of soul level security, which is not really security anymore in the literal sense of the word but actually akin to spiritual sovereignty. In 2020, who and what we are most loyal to and vice versa will be revealed. It will become easier to break free from those things, people and places that no longer resonate with who we really are and to enter into relationships and situations that are more of a reflection of our true nature and values. There is so much more to say about what this means for us on a collective level but I’ll save my ideas for a later time and in segments that different people may find of interest.

Sometimes it seems daunting to interpret one’s own chart and to figure out just how these things may manifest on a personal level. This is when getting a chart reading by a professional astrologer with an objective view can be helpful. For me, chart interpretation in a way that helps others tap into their own intuitive wisdom is a passion. You may contact me for a reading at ReadingsByYerevan@gmail.com

Lunar Eclipse in Cancer 1-10-20 An International and Domestic Paradigm Shift

The Lunar Eclipse at 20 degrees of Cancer on January 10th is the mark of both an international and domestic paradigm shift on this planet. The Moon is opposite of the Sun, Mercury, Ceres, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, giving a final push from limited conditions before the Saturn-Pluto conjunction becomes exact on January 13th. Uranus stations Direct on this day after being Retrograde since August 11 2019, adding to the wildness and unpredictability of moods and encounters.

Cancer is a water sign and its element rules the emotions. Emotional attachments, triggering dynamics and dependencies may seem to be worsening, which is what often happens before something stops and begins to improve. The haunting memories of past betrayals, the stifled home settings, the toxic relationships, childhood wounds, family skeletons falling out of the closet, hunger and longing for connection beyond personality levels are magnified at this time.

What both the lunar eclipse in Cancer and Uranus going Direct in Taurus are saying is that it’s time to let go of some things that have been weighing us down. The Cancer Moon points to emotional baggage and Uranus going forward in earthy Taurus points to material possessions and money-related patterns that need to change. If we live as if the past is stuck to us like krazy glue we’ll never find find happiness in the present or future. If finances are motivated by fear, greed or a non-questioning sense of obligation they will become a form of imprisonment.

This is a monumental moment in the living room, at the kitchen table, and in the town square. Words and feelings, like food, are also nourishing or poisonous to the body’s complex systems. The ocean tides are influenced by the moon but oceans have also been impacted by human misdeeds and ignorance. Read about the tons of radioactive fukushima water ready to be dumped into the Pacific ocean

The tension between the Cancer Moon and Ceres in Capricorn is also casting a light on motherhood, nurturing and the hidden wounds that women carry as mothers, grandmothers, sisters and daughters. It makes visible the various forms of sacrifice that women experience when they offer their bodies to house another being in their womb and support its upbringing. For some this is a joyful experience, but too many mothers in this world are burdened by tragedy, illness, or a lack of emotional support.

The concept of mothering goes beyond giving physical birth. One can mother and nurture others with food, with information, material goods or affection. One can also birth art instead of babies. For some, mothering others has been the sole focus of their livelihood and interactions with others. Those who have done so without compromising themselves too much are often the most fulfilled. But those who have barely made time for their own rest, hopes and dreams tend to become bitter, or at some point when they just cannot continue to give themselves away, suddenly break down in distress. They may feel then that they have nothing left to give.

Finding oneself after an extended period of suffering, smother-mothering or self-sacrifice can be overwhelming. There is so much to piece together. The difference between what has been given away in good spirits and what has been lost is something that this eclipse is helping to discern. Right giving just feels right and empowers us and others. The pattern of wrong giving can finally be broken and a phase of reclaiming personal power has just begun.

New mothers and fathers are experiencing certain challenges that our ancestors never had to face. We may not have to labor as hard as they did in plowing the fields and darning the socks. They would probably roll over in their graves if they saw jam-packed freeways, 5G towers, enforced vaccinations, chemtrails and where AI could be taking us as a species.

The current state of development indicated by the Cancerian lunar eclipse is vulnerable one, apparently filled with pitfalls, dangers and temptations. There is enough uncertainty in the air so it’s probably do best to lay low and not act on any iffy impulses. The greatest benefits may be discovered by going inward in such activities as staying cozy by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa, home-cooking, cuddling with pets or reading a good novel.

The world can be a scary place and everyone needs to get away from it all now and then to hear themselves think and breathe. Whatever the refuge is should provide serenity, beauty and sense of safety, even if it’s just a state of mind, an angle or perspective that is liberating rather than confining. This is a time tending the aspects of the soul that have been wilting from neglect. Meditation, sleep, visits to the spa or receiving a massage are ways of gaining peace of mind. Other activities supported by the current astro alignments include building an altar, practicing Feng Shui or otherwise clearing out clutter, bringing comfort and sacredness into a living space.

The USA is Cancer-born and the lunar eclipse occurs between its Sun and Mercury, opposite of its Pluto and impending Pluto Return (2022). There are clear signs of America undergoing some big changes with regard to its leading government, its economy, and many prized forms of freedom that have been stripped away one by one in the past decade. Now a new decade has begun. What unfolds may be unlike that which any of us alive today have seen happen. Wherever we may be, as long as the faculties of reasoning and responsibility still exist within us we have so many options to create a meaningful and joy-filled life.

Solar Eclipse in Capricorn

Merry Christmas & happy holidays! The Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is now in full effect. Great time to lay low for a bit and recover from this crazy crazy year… ’cause more big changes are coming!

There is a lot of letting go and purification taking place that can help to prepare for new and wonderful manifestations. ❄️🙏🌞

2020: The Start of a New Decade

There are many things that will make 2020 a remarkable year in history. This will be the start of a New Decade. It begins with a Lunar Eclipse in Cancer and the long-awaited conjunction between Saturn and Pluto, which is something that only occurs approximately every 35-40 years. The focus is currently in the sign of Capricorn, and those with planets in Cancer and Capricorn have been undergoing either great turmoil or triumph in their lives during the past year into the new one. In some cases it’s a combination of both.

With the Saturn-Pluto influence there is a lot of deconstruction that must take place before reconstruction and new beginnings take effect. This is what is causing so much discomfort and anxiety for many of us. No doubt these are trying times and it has been taking everything in our tool kit to survive the stress.

Usually there are only four to five eclipses per year. There are a total of six eclipses that will take place in the year ahead. To underline and put all of this into perspective, what is taking place right now astrologically is extraordinary and indicates significant life shifts for everyone on this planet.

On March 21st Saturn enters Aquarius. It will go Retrograde on May 11th going backward into Capricorn on July 1st until September 29th and then it will reenter Aquarius on December 17th. Those with planets in Leo or Aquarius will begin to strongly experience the influence of Saturn in their lives, which could assist in grounding visions into reality, maturation and setting appropriate boundaries. The tests of being able to handle growing responsibilities will come into play as well.

One of the most profound shifts to take place will be on December 21st of 2020 when the Great Conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn takes places in the sign of Aquarius. In addition to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction this one heralds social upheavals along with massive changes in government and global economy.

The current transit of Jupiter through Capricorn is a turning point in consciousness and with it many of the old ways of doing things are coming to completion. This is what prompted the long article Jupiter in Capricorn: End of an Epoch and Turning Point to a New Life. When Jupiter goes Retrograde from May 14th until September 13th and during this time it could become extra important to tap into the resourceful nature of Capricorn.

Venus going Retrograde in Gemini in May and Mars going Retrograde in Aries in September are also going to be tests of staying power, patience and determination. We will have many opportunities throughout the year to review relationships to kinsfolk and life goals in order to make necessary changes.

Some good news is that 2020 will be a 4 year in numerology  helping to bring many aspects of life into greater focus, cohesiveness, organization and stability. The number four is complimentary to the strong Saturnian vibration which supports structure and things of the material world.

For those of you who would like to better understand how to tap into the higher dimensions of Jupiter, Saturn or Pluto’s placements in your chart I am offering readings focused on manifesting your soul’s potential during these turbulent times. Some of you may be feeling discouraged, tired or just plain scared about what the future holds. I am happy to be your astrological guide and counselor in self-empowerment.

Solar Eclipse December 25th – The Manifold Expressions of Power Making Themselves Known

The New Moon on December 25th is an Annular Solar Eclipse at 4 degrees of Capricorn that illuminates incredible reservoirs of energy and strength waiting to be utilized in new ways. The effects of this eclipse will be drawn out over six months, until the lunar eclipse on June 5th. Occurring just after the Solstice on December 21st, it serves as a profound prelude to the highly charged year of 2020.

This Solar Eclipse not only has a powerful influence in the ways that it urges us to be, do and give more than we thought capable of ourselves but through various means demonstrates the levels and manifestations of power at our disposal, given, received or experienced overall. This may sound overly serious and foreboding but there is humor in some of the darkest situations just as there is a silver lining in the heaviest of clouds.

Power is one of those words that not many people are comfortable with and for good reasons. It describes something that can be so easily abused in the wrong hands, and yet combined with love it can heal and uplift. Power can mean many different things at different times, from the mundane to the mystical. It is what makes all things possible in this Universe.

In short, this Solar Eclipse highlights the powers that affect us as well as the power we have to affect change. This is an eclipse of EMPOWERMENT; it indicates that this is an opportune time to come into our gifts, to “toughen up” in some way, actualize our potentials, overcome our fears, and go forward with unshakable resolve.

Jupiter conjunct the Solar Eclipse and South Node in Capricorn

Jupiter conjunct the Solar Eclipse means that this is no small thing but rather massive in its implications and impact on our lives for several months to come. The presence of Jupiter here is highly auspicious in a number of ways. It is also drawing near the South Node in Capricorn and their combined influence may be experienced throughout January 2020, but especially leading up to the Lunar Eclipse in Cancer on the 10th and Saturn-Pluto conjunction on the 12th.

The current emphasis on Jupiter also indicates possible changes of residence, travel, visitors from afar, a connection to spiritual traditions, and traditional ceremonies and rituals taking place at home. It could also bring financial opportunities, new business ventures, and success in legal activities. Much positive growth and expansion is taking place.

Jupiter is the ultimate go-to planet for tackling obstacles, but the South Node represents patterns that can be binding. It may seem that heavy burdens and issues from the past are resurfacing, including those thought to be long gone or already resolved, and especially those related to work and authority figures. New angles on old problems may need to be addressed, because apparently they have not been fully corrected or released. Between now and January 12th the obstacles that most need to be cleared as well as their underlying causes will become apparent. In some cases the greatest challenges revolve around health, depression and chronic ailments. It could be time for a different approach to tending an old wound. If what you’ve been doing for a long time in order to heal has not helped, why not try something new? Jupiter’s influence can restore faith in our body’s ability to do its rightful job, that is to say what came naturally before others or we ourselves interfered with the process. A great part of healing is sleep and rest which allows the body to fully regenerate itself.

The dynamics involving Nodal Axis between Cancer and Capricorn are reaching critical mass. These involve home life, ancestry and need to balance nurturing and privacy with leadership and the delegation of tasks that involve large groups of people. The focus that these areas have received in 2019 have been pointing toward the blind spots of politicians, pseudo-spiritual leaders, and people on high pedestals.

The problem of homelessness in the US has skyrocketed during the past couple of years. With the ever-increasing advancements of technology including smart meters and 5G, privacy and quiet nesting has appeared to become a thing of the past. The search for the perfect home, peaceful home conditions, the cohesive family unit, the safe space continues. The subject of nourishment, both physical and emotional and where it comes from has taken many different forms in young people who are increasingly dissatisfied with the current state of political and economic affairs. Although they are often misguided in their fits of rage and virtue signaling, who can blame them for acting out when they have inherited all of the unresolved conflicts of those who came before? The “state of the world” today is what has been dumped onto them since they were born. What identity politics most reveal is an intense desire for a sense of belonging. That desire is especially heightened now.

Jupiter opposite of the North Node in Cancer ties into the theme linked with the first decan of Capricorn which is the balance between outer work and inner reflection. Workaholism is an addiction disguised as beneficial. The Tarot card Two of Disks illustrates the balance of inner rest and outer work and needs that must be met. It also hints at partnership in work endeavors toward a mutual goal. Although not necessarily a warm and fuzzy type of influence, it can indicate that those souls who come together or work together at this time are fulfilling soul contracts or are soul mates. Deep soul work, the kind that may have been thwarted in the past is now being supported.

Because the eclipse falls in the first decan of Capricorn, the influences of Jupiter and Saturn are both extra strong. The Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto conjunction in this sign is in full effect and there are deeply spiritual implications present for those who are attuned to the subtle aspects of life. From an earthly perspective there is also a great sense of possibility opening up. Jupiter’s trine to Uranus (exact today on December 15th) brings excitement and positive change. It helps to break free from ruts and even the most stubborn of constraints.

The Walk With Power

A fellow psychic reader recently said something in conversation that struck a chord and seems relevant for the times. It was that there are people in this world who “walk for power, and those who walk with it”. Those who walk for power are driven by ego, lust and greed. Some of them are addressed as The Powers that Be. There are others who simply think and act like they are more powerful than they are. They want power over others and will stop at nothing to attain it. Those who walk with power walk with integrity, with their ancestors, in alignment with the spirits of earth and sky. Miraculously, they make their way “through the shadows of the valleys of death, and they fear no evil”, as the biblical saying goes. This doesn’t mean they never experience any fear or pain whatsoever. It means that their courage is stronger than their doubts. Those who walk with power walk with truth as their armor. This is the most empowering walk to take in the long run. The walk in this instance means the arduous path without guarantees or instant gratifications. It is not an easy path but it is deeply fulfilling. This is the path to liberation, and each individual who becomes aware that it exists has access to it.

The Sabian symbol for this eclipse is:

“Indians On The Warpath. While Some Men Row A Well-Filled Canoe, Others In It Perform A War Dance”

This points to defensive action or aggression intermingled with a sense of spirit-driven purpose and ceremony. It also hints at the dynamics of the biological family and lineage, or spirit family, boldly navigating across the waters (the water sign Cancer is Capricorn’s polar opposite) which represent the well of the subconscious, emotional depths and the vast, life-giving Feminine. The Capricorn archetype upholds patriotism, proper authority and what families are willing to do to support each other.

Highlights and Fortune

The Solar Eclipse makes conjunctions to two fixed stars, both benefic in nature. One is the double star Kaus Media, which denotes focus, honor, strength and prosperity. The other is Polis, is linked with ambition as well as spiritual authority and attainment.

Highlights of the Solar Eclipse and Jupiter conjunct the South Node in Capricorn:

  • Ancestral contracts made or broken
  • Creation of a new work or home environment
  • Draw toward Soul Mate connections
  • Dismantling of outmoded power structures
  • Food for body and soul, healing, rest and repose
  • Recovery from what has been suffered through the efforts, mistakes and trials of the South Node in Capricorn. Assimilation of the lessons learned.

The asteroid Fortuna at 5 degrees Capricorn bears an influence on the New Moon conjunct Jupiter. Here is just another sign that good fortune is on the horizon, in ways we have least expected it to show up. The Solar Eclipse bumps up the energy necessary for Jupiter’s un-shackling process to begin. Quite possibly the best Christmas present ever.
