Tuesday 16th July
Today we have a partial lunar eclipse. It follows the solar eclipse of two weeks ago which was on a new moon in the sign of Cancer. Tomorrow’s eclipse is on a full moon and it is visible in the UK. (weather permitting as ever…) The full moon will rise eclipsing so it is definitely worth looking out for. The moon rises at 21.18 BST in Norwich and totality is at 22.31 BST.
Eclipses are times of change; endings and beginnings. This one is part of a series of eclipses falling in the proactive Cardinal signs of Cancer and Capricorn. So issues associated with the sign of Cancer may arise, these are; our home, our family and the past. The Capricorn themes of rules, time, social expectation, work and ambition are also in the mix. This is a time let go of rigid expectations and habits which no longer work and to nurture what is really important to us.
Monday 15th July
We have an eclipse tomorrow and these are times of endings and beginnings. Eclipses come in pairs and this is the second in a fortnight. The first one was a solar eclipse on Tuesday 2nd July. I used that time to have a good clear out and had a big bonfire where I burnt up loads of rubbish and weeds on my allotment. This was a physical and symbolic clearing out of the old. Whilst doing this I noticed that our stream was all choked with weeds and did start to get in there and have a bit of a go at it. Being an impulsive fire sign I jumped in there and got my feet all wet as I didn’t go back home to change into my wellies. uh oh. I promised myself that I would Clare the stream before tomorrow’s lunar eclipse and today I did. It was fun and I got one slightly wet foot where a little bit of water went into my welly as I went a tad too deep! The stream certainly is clearer now and allowing the water to flow freely.
