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, and ever-expanding 5G networks 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 wave of chaos 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. This period of time could also bring huge breakthroughs and opportunities unlike those any of us have experienced before.
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 or by the USA
- White house scandals
- Economic transformation
- Increased security checks in public locations
- Large-scale financial losses and/or windfalls, major investments
- 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 and China (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
