So, what is going on with all of these high profile deaths of late? This is the question that everyone keeps asking me so I’ll do my best to shed some light. Things happen in astrology when several powerful energies find their way to certain points in aspect to each other. Right now, there are extremely powerful energies crossing paths.
FIRST, THE NODES OF DESTINY:
The Nodes are Karmic points. There is the North Node which points the way towards future growth and new learning and there is the South Node which shows the past lifetimes and what needs healing or finishing or where there will be loss or someone from the past entering your life again.
The Nodes take 18 months to travel backwards through a sign. We have been experiencing them in the Aquarius/Leo areas of our chart. The North Node has been asking us to look for the group of friends and associates who will best support our aspirations in the future over the last 18 months. The South Node has been bringing karmic meetings, people in and out of our lives who were lovers in past lives, or allowing us to deal with current karma with lovers, it has been asking us to settle karma with children in our lives and has brought some karmic events related to them through our lives, and it has been showing us what talents and creative potential we can rely on from our past lifetimes and how that was to be brought up and dealt with in this lifetime.
RIGHT NOW, the Nodes are slowly moving backwards on the very last degree in this axis.
They are at 0 degrees until August 21st when they will cross into a new set of signs, Capricorn and Cancer. This is considered ‘critical’ in astrology so we have a set of karmic energies at critical degrees in fixed signs (meaning they lock onto something and don’t let go) and they are getting ready to transition into the signs that rule what is in the spotlight, ambition, and fame=Capricorn, and the end of all matters in a chart where the roots of our lives are found=Cancer. To say that this is a time when we will lose beloved people is an understatement. But this is not all that is going on.
TWO NEW MOONS IN CANCER:
We are currently between 2 New Moons in Cancer, something that doesn’t happen often. New Moon energy is about beginnings. Cancer is our home, our roots, our mothers, our security needs, our patriotism and the sign of our country. In astrology when you want to understand the end of a life, you look at the circumstances of the fourth house ruled by Cancer, it is called the end of the matter. So we had our first New Moon in Cancer on June 22nd and we saw new ideas take seed about our ‘family’ and ‘roots’ and where we want to hang our hat. With every beginning there is an end. When the Moons trigger the sign of Cancer and Capricorn, you will see endings that make way for these new beginnings.
The 2nd New Moon in Cancer is happening on the 21st of July and will be at an anaertic degree, meaning the last degree in a sign which holds power and lessons. This New Moon will launch us forward to put down roots in a new place, with new people or in a new way, it will close the door on the old to do so, it is very powerful, which brings me to the third influence in the mix and not the least of them I might add.
THREE ECLIPSES IN 31 DAYS:
This second New Moon in Cancer is a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE.
I will explain the meaning of a Solar Eclipse here but first I have to say that there are 3 Eclipses happening over the course of 31 days. Are you sitting down? Eclipse energy was first noted by the ancients who studied this science as influential in the rise and fall of kingdoms and kings, (in modern times besides politicians, countries and kings, our celebrities are followed with equal vigor and so we see a rise in the impact here).
An Eclipse packs 3 times the power of a normal New or Full Moon to begin or end a new venture or relationship in life. They bring outside events into our lives that will put us on course to a new pathway (Solar Eclipse) and they will bring something to a climax in our lives on an emotional level (Lunar Eclipse). As an aside here, it is interesting to note that born on the 4th of July, our country is about to launch in some powerful new way. Keep your eye on our leadership and our response to our enemies, perceived or real. Because the 10th house shows results from the 7th and the tenth house is Capricorn and solarly our countries Capricorn is the 7th, the first Eclipse may be a climax around an open enemy and our New Beginning could stem from responses to this matter. But I digress…
Here is what is happening with the Eclipses:
The first Eclipse is in Capricorn and falls on July 7th. It is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 15.32 degrees Capricorn at 1:11 pm eastern time. Something is peaking, ending, climaxing around what is in the spotlight, fame, father, leadership, authority figures, ambition, career, goals, and response to open enemies and partnerships. Trigger dates for this Eclipse besides the 7th of July are: June 9th, July 2nd, July 12th, and August 4th. July 7th being the most powerful of these dates, you may still have had clues or the actual energy arrive on one of the trigger dates so take a look.
The second Eclipse is in Cancer and falls on July 21st (Zoe Moon’s birthday, oy!). It is a New Moon Total Solar Eclipse at 29.26 degrees Cancer at 10:35 pm eastern time and is the most powerful of the Eclipses. It is about a huge new beginning, an outer event that in some way influences where you live, with whom, your roots, your childhood memories, relationship with mom, the house or property, how you deal with security and building up foundations in your life. Trigger dates for this Eclipse besides the 21st of July are: June 30th, July 16th, July 26th, and August 18th.
The third Eclipse is in Aquarius and falls on August 5th. It is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 13.35 Aquarius (where our Nodes are energizing at the critical degree) at 8:39 am eastern time. It is about something peaking, climaxing, ending around society, the group, the friendship or associations, networking, your aspirations, the internet, technology, charities, independence, originality, freedom, or revolution. Trigger dates for this Eclipse besides August 5th are: July 8th, July 31st, August 10th, or September 2nd.
So, as you can see, there are intense energies at work. They will have many consequences in our lives but moreover, it will be how we CHOOSE (don’t forget free will) to deal with the energies that will define the future. We are seeing some beloved people in the spotlight taking their final bow, we are making choices about who we want to allow in our closest circle, where we belong, who we are at the root of our being, what our ambitions really say about us and how we want to lead, not only in our personal life but as a country.
Those special souls who step out into the limelight as reflections to the masses are our first insight into the changes coming. Each of their charts had differing aspects locking as they left Earth, but what ties them together is us, our love of them, our interest in them over the years, this is the Nodal axis at play now between reaching society and the creative energy that is put out by these artists and the New Moons and Eclipses that are making it about what we see in the spotlight and how we are redefining life and death, the end of all matters and the new beginnings that are the stuff of life.
