From Cyrus the Astrologer
The Lunar Eclipse occurs in the14th degree of Cancer-Capricorn.
In this Eclipse, the Sun in Cancer aligns with the fixed star Sirius and is inconjunct Mars, Pluto and Vulcan.
Also, Mercury Trines Uranus and Venus conjoins the fixed star Alcyone.
This is a time of renewal and transformation. Our attitudes towards events and circumstances can be transformed into creative energy that can help us move blocked energies. These emotional and mental blocks often stem from rigid attitudes and positions that we may have cherished for a long time or have been linked to our identity. These attitudes often stem from early conditioning and they have played a major role in forming our self-concepts.
We are called upon to adapt and change our identity along with changing conditions. In order to do this, we need to have the courage and the will of the spiritual warrior.
These Feelings and attitudes can be lovingly acknowledged and transmuted into a stance that is more adapted to change and welcoming of love and compassion.
Bitterness , resentment, guilt and the need for approval are a sign of emotional imbalance. These emotional and mental attitudes often stem from early conditioning and can be transmuted through emotional depth-work.
Making punishing demands on ourselves and needless ‘efforting’ often block our progress. At these times it is important to relax and let go. If we have a lot of emotions riding on our goals, we probably need to address them by lovingly acknowledging them and processing them.
As we become more attuned, we become more sensitive to our intuition and guidance. New ideas come to us now bringing new visions and new solutions
The Moon is inconjunct Saturn at 2:48 AM.
Because this aspect occurs just before the lunar Eclipse along with the Sun-Pluto alignment, it suggests the kinds of emotions and attitudes that we are likely to encounter during this time.
Feelings of unworthiness often lead us to feel that we somehow are obliged to take on the burdens of others. This can make us very susceptible to manipulation through guilt. Healing our wounded emotions makes it a lot easier to draw definite boundaries between our own responsibilities and those of others.
Vulcan is inconjunct Pluto at 9:17 AM.
This position is also closely linked to the Sun-Pluto alignment (refer to the 4th of July report). This is an aspect of reorientation and adjustment and is in effect today along with Vulcan-Pluto.
Vulcan forms the link between humanity and the Plan. This is due to Vulcan’s First Ray influence, its link with the Fourth Ray energy of Taurus, and its connection with the Fourth kingdom in nature, Humanity.
Vulcan is known as the ‘blacksmith of the gods’ or the ‘fashioner of divine expression.’ It is the energy that sets the evolutionary process in motion.
During certain life stages, we stand completely alone and are not sure whether to move forward with what we know we must do, or return to our old, familiar patterns and the influence of crystallisation. This is when the revelation comes that the will of God or the Plan is the only desirable objective in life. At this point we have not yet proved ourselves in the world of form and are not sure whether we have the necessary strength and will to move forward on our Service Path or Dharma.
This has been called the "Gethsemane Experience." It is symbolised by the Christ kneeling beside the rocks (the depths of the mineral kingdom and materiality). He raises His eyes upward as the light of revelation breaks forth from the clouds and at that moment knows what it is that He has to do.
Thus we learn to grasp the divine purpose and bend the will of the little self to Will of Spirit.
Humanity has a decision to make. The nature of this decision and its consequences are becoming ever more clear both individually and collectively during this eclipse period.
The partial lunar Eclipse occurs at 11:04:09 AM EDT, 3:04:09 PM GMT.
A lunar Eclipse is connected the Previous solar Eclipse because of the cyclic nature of the lunar phases. In this case it is connected to the powerful Solar Eclipse of June 21.
The solar Eclipse urges us to give for the betterment of the whole. The following lunar eclipse brings out our individual and unique patterns. These patterns may prove to be either emotionally or mentally unbalanced in these changing conditions. They need to be adapted and stabilised in line with the new conditions that are being created by the solar Eclipse. In this way they do not interfere with our contribution to planetary unfolding either individually or collectively.
The Solar eclipse is masculine in nature and of longer duration, offering the chance to give in service for the benefit of the whole. The lunar Eclipse is feminine in nature and is of shorter duration. It serves to balance our needs and adapt to the changing paradigm.
This lunar Eclipse falls on 14 degrees of Cancer-Capricorn. Eclipses run in 19-year cycles. The last lunar Eclipse of this cycle was on July 6, 1982, which was also at 14 degrees Cancer-Capricorn. We have a chance to reflect on the effects of that time and how our lives were changed. This is especially true if we have any planetary or other chart points at 14 degrees Cancer-Capricorn or Aries-Libra.
The Cancer-Capricorn polarity relates to nourishment, limits and boundaries. We are called upon to set limits and boundaries so that we are focused on our own responsibilities and the unfolding of our Soul-purpose.
The balance between our personal needs and professional goals is also highlighted. We are learning to change our circumstances so that we do the kind of work that we love to do and is in line with our Soul-aspirations.
The collective effect of this change is the opening of the planetary heart centre so that Humanity is able to receive a greater measure of Universal Love.
The Sabian symbols for these degrees are revealing. For 14° Cancer: "A very old man facing a vast dark space to the Northeast." North is where cosmic forces enter our physical realm. We are becoming more aware of the timeless wisdom of Universal Laws and "the immeasurable reaches of past experiences as a strengthening of the human spirit for its immediate destiny.." The northeast symbolizes "the design and choreography of energy" in the Native American Medicine Wheel of the Twisted Hair Medicine Society.
The Sabian symbol for 14° Capricorn is: "An ancient bas-relief carved in granite remains a witness to a long-forgotten culture." We are called upon to unearth qualities in human the human spirit that have permanent value, and to release those elements that are separative in nature or no longer relevant to our present unfolding. The quotations are from Marc Edmund Jones, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology.
Venus conjoins Alcyone at 12:44 PM.
In order to understand the nature of discipleship, the process of stabilisation and right direction, we are experiencing "points of crisis" and "moments of reorientation." The tests of the Disciple are to reorient ourselves to the life of the soul and to demonstrate sensitivity to the Plan, thus becoming focused and determined in our Soul-aspirations.
As ever more of us begin to take part in World Service and become group conscious, we begin to experience this unique process of unfolding in our lives. This is now beginning to happen today for the first time in planetary history.
The Sun in Cancer aligns with the fixed star Sirius at 10:03 PM.
As we begin to exhaust and the demands and desires of our lower nature, we experience a cycle of conscious re-orientation. Here we begin to achieve balance and "stand in spiritual Being" as a result of constant trial and testing.
This Eclipse period is preparing us for a new growth phase. Finally we stand ready for the purification and renewal in the fire of Spirit.
The influence of the Second and the Seventh Rays is unfolding a great rhythmic awakening. Technology and global awareness is helping us to recognise ourselves in people across the globe and at the same time we are learning to recognise and honour global unity in diversity.
Humanity now stands at this stage.
