More notes on the July 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse

What’s so special about the sign of The Crab, Cancer? That it is Moon-ruled, self-protective, and canny in business? Home-loving, family-oriented, Mom-hugging, and a little psychic?

With the current June 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse @11Gem02 in force but followed very soon by a Solar Eclipse on July 1, 2011 (America’s early birthday present since it manifests between our nation’s Sun and Jupiter and 3 days prior to July 4th – it’s the first in a new Saros Series!), what factors will be emphasized by its double Cancer message?

If you have natal planets or points within 2 degrees either side of 9Can12, this eclipse will directly affect your your chart on some level but the nearer the orb, the more noticeable the eclipse energy.

Also involved are any opposite planets/points around 7 to 11 Capricorn (relationships may be affected, also a new awareness may dawn), and if you care to widen your Cancerian fishing net further, also consider the squaring degrees and sextiling/trining degrees: 7 to 11 Aries/Libra, and 7 to 11 Virgo/Pisces. The opposing (Cap) and squaring (Ari/Lib) signs are the strongest with the conjunction in Cancer the strongest of all.

Eclipses falling in Tropical Cancer tend to bring up such issues as feelings and emotions, receptivity, imagination, nurturing (and its evil twins, abuse or neglect), deep attachments, and habits that fulfill emotional needs.

And since Cancer and the Moon both are prone to ‘soaking up’ the energy of whatever planet/s they are linked to, any planets in aspect to the eclipse are particularly important and may exhibit a sort of celestial tofu effect.

Naturally with Cancer, concerns about water, flooding, and marine issues may well be tops on the July 1, 2011 eclipse’s agenda for manifestation as well. Sadly, our country is already seeing these effects playing out in the Midwest with the Mississppi and Missouri Rivers overflowing. And with transiting Pluto, planet of atomic power, opposing the July eclipse, we think instantly of the current flooding threats to the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Planet in Nebraska, a new disaster since early Sunday morning’s breach.

For a little Astrology on the topic, you may wish to see this morning’s Fort Calhoun Nuclear Breach: Neptune to US Moon? post.

Other Cancerians issues the July 1st eclipse may bring to the surface include food or food supplies, dietary factors, emotional hurts, environmental matters, genealogical information, Real Estate, the Homeland, national and personal security, women’s and children’s issues (such as the SCOTUS decision handed down today about violent video games being “OK” for kids! Eclipses can act early, plus, we’re still under the rays of the June 1st eclipse with Gemini, the sign of young people), and karmic family or other close ties. Joining societies or other organizations may come up for consideration or review as well.

Yes, it’s quite rare for two Solar Eclipses to occur just one month apart and perhaps you’ve been feeling a special, intuitive, or spiritualized shift of energy since June 2011 began for we are now in a window of cosmic eclipse energy which included the June 15, 2011 Lunar Eclipse @ 24Sag23.
Near Athens, Georgia, June 15th was a night of tremendous thunderstorms and high winds with some areas experiencing hail. Such is the pull of Earth’s Moon which rules the tides!

Now if you’d like to check out the July 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse from a more political p.o.v., try Stars Over Washington, my Political Astrology site with a common good slant, where you can view the July 1st horoscope set for Washington DC, and see the restrictive Grand Cross pattern which the chart contains.

    • Thank you, what an amazing site you have there! Read through the eclipse/numerology info you provide and intend to write a shout-out post about it as time permits.

      Anyone interested in ‘The Eclipse Prince William’, the ‘Shadow King’, Kate (born on day of a Lunar Eclipse), the Royal Family, the Queen’s visitor, Numerology, Biblical prophecy, Numerology, the Assyrian Fish God, the X-Men comics’ connection, the RAF, and much more, please do check out the site.Though I’ve heard and read many people’s opinions that Prince William is more than he ‘seems’ your site lays it out in chilling detail.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are.
