New Moon in Cancer AND a Solar Eclipse

Friday, July 1, 1:54 am PDT, 4:54 am EDT

This New Moon in protective Cancer is a very powerful Solar Eclipse. Instead of planting seeds of security in our gardens of desire, we are challenged to break up the old soil of expectations about what will make us safe and happy. Cancer wants closeness and continuity but eclipses break patterns, especially when forming stressful 90-degree squares with volatile Uranus. Yet while Uranus sparks surprises, constraining Saturn and transformational Pluto also form tense aspects to the New Moon. Pressure is building that can affect major institutions, individuals and the environment and is best met with innovation, passion and commitment. Being a well-prepared and patient agent of change will radically improve lives while desperately holding onto the past can be futile and frustrating. (From Jeff Jawer's Star IQ)

Anna and the "posse" are meeting at the beach, bringing items to throw onto a bonfire - items that represent old fears, old habits, old ways of doing and thinking that are holding us all back. It looks like we will be in alignment with the Solar System and if nothing else, will be having a heck of a good time!

What a good idea! We should all do that at least once a year. Off with the old! In with the new!

It reminds me of a tradition we have in Cuba on New Year's Eve. We chuck a bucket of water out of the balcony (if one has one, of course) signifying out with the old year and in with the new one. :-)

By the way, I would LOVE you to join in the food/music theme. Just drop me an e-mail with the recipe you suggest, the whys and wherefores of your selection and the music that inspired you either to cook or to eat it. Anything and everything goes. You can send the music as links to the clips either on youtube or a similar video-sharing website. You decide.

Greetings from London.
