The New Moon/Solar Eclipse at 0° Cancer on June 20, 2020
Let’s check out this solar eclipse coming up this weekend on June 20th, Saturday at 11:41 pm PDT.
I live in Long Beach, so the chart below, is what the sky will look like at the exact time of the eclipse. I will not be able to see this solar eclipse, as the sun and moon are below the horizon. If I was an Eclipse-Chaser, I would have to have myself situated in the middle of Africa at the start of this eclipse, but traveling over seas is tough these days since the whole COVID-19 epidemic that blew up during the Virgo Full moon in March of this year.
The solar eclipse is in Cancer, which is ruled by the moon, so this intensifies the lunatic energies of neediness like how a newborn baby wants its mother.
If you are reading this, you are most likely an adult with various issues or statuses with your mother to this day.
Perhaps you have lost your mother at a young age, or perhaps you are very close to your mother and talk to her every day, or perhaps you have an issue with your mother and you haven’t spoken to her in years.
Whatever the case, we have all been born from a mother in one-way or another. Unless you are some sort of science experiment or alien, then it is a fact that you have at some point been connected to your mother before your birth on this earth.
People who have adopted children, or who have been adopted themselves, or mothers who have given up their own babies for adoption will be feeling this energy powerfully as this is most likely a powerful point in their charts.
This solar eclipse also tremendously affects people who have had abortions, or have had partners that had abortions or miscarriages. The emotional impact that was felt around these situations pops up in our consciousness again.
This energy affects everyone in some way, like even reaching the feelings of men who have children with women who they are now estranged from, will at least realize the emotional impact that is still lingering within them about the situation.
This solar eclipse reminds us of all of this.
People who want children, but cannot for some reason, are also in this spotlight.
The energy of Cancer is a nurturing instinct. So even if you are not a mother yourself or have no relationship to a mother some how, then this new moon can help you realize your very own nurturing instincts.
How are you nurturing yourself? How are you parenting your self? How are you taking care of your home, your houseplants, and your pets?
The moon also represents your home environment and that feeling of safety and protection from “the dangerous outside world.”
Your home environment is like a recreation of the womb you grew and developed in.
When we are at home, we are in an area where we can nurture ourselves, spiritually grow, and prepare ourselves for the outside world. Every day.
Some of us may be living with housemates, and so it is hard to have complete control over the home situation.
How you can manage all of this comes into top importance on your emotional priority list.
It was just earlier today, (six days before this eclipse) that I installed an alarm system on the back door of my apartment.
I did this because one day I came home with the roommate gone and I noticed that the back door was completely unlocked! There are three locks on that door. Then the next day I had a dream that I came home and the door was unlocked again and wide open. In the dream I was in a panic and searched around to see what might have been stolen. Nothing was stolen in this dream or in real life. However, I trust dreams to give me clues and warnings about waking life. Knowing that this solar eclipse is coming up, I decided to not take any chances with my security and confronted the housemate about being more mindful of checking the locks before they leave, and now to also make sure my newly installed alarm is on too.
The Aspects to this Solar Eclipse:
I have explained a lot of the types of energies and feels of what this solar eclipse can bring. Most of it is memories and how we process these memories. Another side of it is our concern for current and future securities of our home. Whether it is our actual home that we live in, or that beautiful "home" sensation we hold within our hearts.
There are 2 main aspects to this solar eclipse. The first is Saturn at 0° retrograde in Aquarius that makes a quincunx. A quincunx is an aspect that is 150 degrees away. It is in a different element, a different mode, and a different polarity. Aquarius is an air, fixed, yang sign and the solar eclipse, the sun and moon, are in Cancer which is a water, cardinal, yin sign. They are more different that opposing signs. With nearly nothing in common, it is hard to find common ground. There is trouble in merging the 2 differences so it seems like it has to be one way or the other.
The next aspect that affects this solar eclipse is Uranus in septile to the eclipse. A septile is an aspect that is 51 degrees away and is hardly ever mentioned by astrologers. A septile gives keen intuitive insight that when we know it, we are lost for words, but somehow just know what to do about it. Many of us will be applying some drastic changes to gain some sort of emotional support during and soon after this eclipse. Look to your natal chart to find where Uranus is transiting and that will give you a further clue to where this insight will come from.
For example of what to expect around this eclipse, I will use whole sign houses to describe what each rising sign might be blessed and challenged with. Depending on your degree of Rising sign, the current or the next rising sign and house examples might make more sense to you, but generally speaking:
This Solar eclipse lands in your 4th house of Home. Saturn is transiting your 11th house of Friends and Group participation.

This Solar eclipse lands in your 2nd house of Income and Valuables. Saturn is transiting your 9th house of Mental Exploration and Far Travels. There is a strong urge to get on top of your finances.
