The Eclipses fall in the signs of Cancer and Capricorn in 2019 and in 2020. In general home, security, career or our collective directional purpose will be the main theme no matter what sign you were born under.
Roughly every six months events, circumstances, that are in some-way associated to these issues work to alter perspectives and guide us in another direction. The last set of Eclipses focused on humanitarian causes, community and the pride (sometimes arrogance) of the individualmore often officially/unofficially regarded as rulers, leaders. If you have followed global politics the pattern that the last set of Eclipses brought to attention it was hard to miss.
In determining how the series of Cancer and Capricorn eclipses will function and how we can handle them in the best way possible it is necessary to with grapple with issues of a paradoxical nature in our lives. How we live, nurture, care for, secure our idea of home and family will be challenged and fall prey to our yearnings to be boss, wield power, money and have as much control in the outside world as possible. There is a balance to strike and the Eclipses will help us navigate this field within ourselves.
It may be helpful to think of the eclipses as if you are walking towards the horizon of your soul-center. It rests on level not too high or too low but in perfect balance with the sky above and earth below. It is a mission and half to trudge over the hills and valleys, through foreign terrain, to glean the experiences we need to prepare us for yet another trek. The horizon is always there and yet, reaching it will never be the point. The point is to explore the territory with some directional purpose in mind to keep us sane and centered in our nature.
For CANCER during ECLIPSE season…
You vs. ‘Them’ or You vs. ‘You’?
(Partnerships, Contracts, Commitments)
What comes more easily to Capricorn now challenges your understanding. You can find balance by learning from their business acumen and patience in emotional matters. Borrow from their musings on what partnership means and their practical take on relationships. Keep in mind they too will be in the process of evolving and so integrating your viewpoint from the opposite end of the table.
It’s a hard road. The position of the Nodes, the Eclipses create tension for all the Cardinal signs: Libra, Aries, Capricorn and yourself. It is a tension however, that promotes experiences that will broaden your understandings thus granting access to the many opportunities available when the North Node shifts into Gemini in 2021. Essentially, if you are looking for a greater sense of security on the home and work front and are craving to be understood by those nearest and dearest, the eclipses will provide precisely the training and preparation you’ll need.
January 6th, 2019 -SOLAR ECLIPSE in CAPRICORNencourages you to take a hard look where and/or with whom you have made a commitment. Many Cancers (and Capricorns) will be thinking about marriage or at least strongly considering the practical details of how this will work for the long term. If you are unattached the same sentiment holds true for business endeavors. Other planetary influences surrounding the Eclipse cast a sobering feel over the whole issue. In other words you will take any decisions you make now very seriously. There is also the risk that the weight of ‘things’ is too much to handle causing you to sit idle.

This lunar cycle ends with a LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN on July 17th, 2019 where you will be able to tell if you can stick this out for the long-term.
