New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer ♋



Early on 7/1/2011 there is a New Moon Solar Eclipse. Eclipses “clip” something out. This can be something we have been holding on to, which needs to be released, or something we are glad to see go. Either way, and though this can be difficult to appreciate at the time, the change matures us and advances our soul growth.

Jun 27-28: Powerful forces within and without are exerting pressure. Pluto challenges us to the core to surrender that which on the spiritual level is no longer serving us. It can feel like a death. But rebirth into a more self-empowered place must follow (Sun opposite Pluto ☉☍♇).

‎A comment from an astrology friend about this aspect: “Living with and grappling with one’s demons in that underworld subconscious zone below the rational...” In this painting the mythological god, Pluto/Hades, is holding a key. Another comment from the same wise friend in regard to this aspect and the symbolism of the painting: “Facing and dealing with the ‘hot’ radioactive content at the core of the psyche and transforming it is the key. Otherwise it destroys you.”
