2020 Solstice Eclipse begins Water Horse Month

June 20 2020 at 11:41 pm PDT is a new Moon eclipse in Water sign Cancer. Cancer rules the 4th house of home, family, and nurturing. Many people are staying home due to Covid-19, so continue to create a home sanctuary and take care of self and others.

This new Moon eclipse occurs on Summer Solstice, the start of summer and the longest day in the northern hemisphere. Plus this new Moon eclipse begins Water Horse month. Fiery Horse is strong and brave, and is one of the power animals of the Chinese zodiac. The Water Horse is more sensitive and sentimental than other Horses, but like all Horses they prize freedom and independence.

So during Water Horse lunar month, people do not want to be told what to do. They could be ruled be their feelings (Water), impulses, and subjective interpretation of facts. There’s plenty of Water to be in touch with emotions with the eclipsed Moon, Sun, and retrograde Mercury (until July 12) in Cancer, and Mars and Neptune in Pisces.

The eclipsed Moon and Sun are in 0 degrees Cancer, and both square Mars in 26 degrees Pisces. These squares can bring disagreements, irritability and impatience, and rash actions. But Mars squares can bring energy to make a successful stand in a confrontation, especially now for social justice. Long buried tensions come to the surface during this second of three eclipses in a row.

Mars conjunct Neptune continues that can bring unusual moods. The Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto conjunction continues influencing financial and political issues. Contact me for your tarot reading and astrology forecast for guidance.

Opportunities to understand emotions, inner motivation, and to assert power are for all, and are strongest for Water signs Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio and those born in Horse, Sheep, Rabbit, Tiger, and Dog years.

Happy new Moon,
