0* Cancer New Moon (no moon – starry dark sky, the time of dreaming), culminating June 21, 2020 on Summer Solstice with an Annular Solar Eclipse. Eclipses are about change and solar eclipses are about getting a gift of some kind. It can be to bring something exciting or illuminating into your life.
This Cancer New Moon is about your emotions and finding balance in your home life. How might we use the eclipse to change our personal world to the one we really want to be in. Where we use our heart, and figure out who and what is important. While using your instinctual nature to center yourself, take a moment to find your balance. This can be taking a deep breath. We all have wants, needs, and desires. Where best do we activate our personal power to recognize and flowing toward life being an easy ride instead of upward battle or game of strategy. When our instincts are in a quandary, we find our self to be irrational and irritable. When we take 60 seconds to breathe and pause.
Let us come back to solid ground. To Calm thoughts: your life starts in the
home — your wellness starts from the home, beauty starts from the home, success starts from the home. And… spirituality starts from the home. This is why it’s important to create a sanctuary and wholesome life. When you walk out your front door with “structure” you can find your next level of wellness, happiness, success, and love. Inner formation of strength and vitality renews your spirit to conquer an outer world.
Often seen in the eyes of our elders we must be reasonable or have something to trade. Be it time and energy to an actual craft. We must stay open, tuning into our primal survival instinct and our conscious motives. We must conform to what is good for us, helping us sustain our home life and feelings of emotional stability. If everything is going wrong for you, what is going right for you. Where are you not listening to the inner workings of your heart, of your wants, your mind, your goals and your treaties. Those compromises you’ve made to be living the life you are living right now. You’ve made choices and now find yourself where you are. Look at your feet and know this is where you stand. Look in the mirror and see deeply into you. Look at your hand and know what do you do well.
List a positive and a negative trait you posses with each word
- Human condition
- Basic Human Instinct – survival, help and support others to be supported
- Hunger – Could you hunt for food or grow a garden?
- Are you hungry for love and fulfillment. You know when you feel right about things or feel wrong. Tune into your inner knowing again. It takes some practice. It will help you overcome moving too fast or too slow or stalling when you should be acting.
-We often say we are confused and don’t know what we want, but it may be that we don’t know how to get what we want.
So we settle…
- What home would you like to have?
- What “home life” would you like to have?
- Are you living in the right place?
- Why if so or if not.
- What type of land do you like?
-Make a fantasy of a house, what kind of land it’s on, what it looks like on the outside, what it looks like in the inside.
- How many bedrooms
- Do you allow guests
- What are your electronics
- What are your toys
- Beloved | spouse | partner | gf/bf
-List anything that would make for a happy home.
When you are faced with problems, do you freeze, crumble or go into action
-Life’s Details, Actions & Results
How are you going into action on your problems right now
- Make a list and write a solution to each problem
-Are you happy with the results so far in your life
- When were you happy
- What were you doing then
- How can you readjust to a happier now for the same result
-Are you making the most of where you live
- City or Town
-Where you are standing
Stories: 2 sentences or more
- Where are your feet
- Create a fantasy on where your feet should be.
- Make a realistic scenario where your feet should be.
—Release a mindset and old communication style on what doesn’t work in an effective world. How do you move about in your environment to acquire confidence, and constructive acts or good manners. Where can a Revelation or two give meaningful thought to create purposeful achievement. How can we use the eclipse to change. You’ve been speaking since infancy but are you getting your needs met. Is your life is in working order. You may feel you are at your base instinctual level seeking to survive. It isn’t about crying in the wilderness, it’s the show of strength in human involvement and evolvement. Finding the real voice, unlocking ourselves into how we should be and not how we think we should be.

It takes several minutes for the moon to pass in front of the sun but the total eclipse lasts less than a second.

Summer Solstice, Midsummer, Litha
By Tara Sutphen
“In the world’s audience hall, the simple blade of grass sits on the same carpet with the sunbeams, and the stars of midnight” – Rabindranath Tagore (Indian Poet, Playwright and Essayist, Won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913, 1861-1941)
-Summer Solstice marks the end of the waxing year. And the rays of the sun directly strike one of the two tropical latitude lines. June 21 marks the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere, as winter begins in the southern hemisphere. On this day, the earth’s “circle of luminescence” will be from the Arctic Circle to the Antarctic Circle. The equator receives twelve hours of daylight, as there will be 24 hours of daylight at the North Pole and 24 hours of darkness at the South Pole.
-All over the world people honor this day as an important reminder of the apex of light and to cast away evil and their problems. Northern Hemisphere inhabitants use June 21 as the day of celebration, but the splendor of light lasts from new moon to full moon.
Worshipping the Sun’s great power, all cultures celebrate in some way. Celts and Slavs dance around bonfires while Chinese marked the day honoring Li, the Goddess of Light. The celebrants of modern and ancient ceremonies tune in that life comes from the sun. It is life giving and life supporting. We’ve recently had the good fortune to have electricity, greenhouses, and shipment suppliers. How will you celebrate? We all may not get a chance to dance around the bonfire but it’s a time to bask in the light, sit in the sun, cast our worries away and awaken to our lives.

Item : The Sacred Circle USD $ 10.99
Meditation By Tara Sutphen
Following Tara’s “under the stars” induction, you travel to a sacred stone circle in the middle of a meadow. Here, in the center of the circle, you meet a beautiful woman dressed in chiffon. As she chants, you experience an expanding vortex of power within: “Where light meets darkness … where the beginning encircles the end … where joy nullifies pain … we now choose to slip between the worlds beyond time, beyond space, and we invoke the positive powers of the Universe to assist us to manifest our desires.” Chakra balancing is followed with an inspiration ritual in which you open your heart and mind to the limitless positive potentials of life on earth. You withdraw an object from a box that relates to your purpose. Walking counter clockwise you recall a happy event from the past and transmit the vibrations into the present. A clock becomes a symbol placed in the circle to assist you make the most of your valuable time. Much more. 30 Minutes.
