How Will The Solar Eclipse On July 2 Impact Your Zodiac Sign?
Solar eclipses occur when the sun and moon are positioned at the exact same degree within the same zodiac sign. The moon passes between the sun and earth, temporarily obscuring visibility of the sun.
Eclipses can be quite striking and dramatic, abruptly opening new doors and slamming others shut. Energetically speaking, eclipses serve as celestial checkpoints. They can inspire rapid change, movement, and action.
Astrologer AstroSagas has provided a glimpse into how the Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 2 will impact each of the zodiac signs.
Babe, it’s time to let the hurt feelings go. You have to realize that because you’re an Aries and because you’re always focused on your next move, you end up stepping on people’s toes. And that’s how the hurt feelings happen: not just for the people in your life who feel like they can’t depend on you, but also for yourself when you lose people in your life over what feels like minor squabbles.
But holding on to your hurt feelings isn’t going to solve this pattern any more than pretending it isn’t happening is going to. What you need to do is let go of the ego, call up your friends, and let them know how much you care. After that, you’re free to go. Whether you keep the connections or move on to the next social scene, the thing that’s important here is for you to feel clear.
You know Taurus, it strikes me that you are known for a great many things, but your ability to talk through a problem isn’t one of them. And that is exactly what will come up this eclipse season, my friend. You are steady, wise, committed, and loyal to your friends – but a lot of times you just keep things to yourself when you really shouldn’t.
If you’ve been feeling under-appreciated and unloved, you need to speak up. No one’s going to know what you need right now if you refuse to share it with the rest of us, babe. If someone hasn’t been meeting your expectations, don’t just write them off. Say something about it now.
You’ve been making some moves babe, and I’m so proud of you. This year has proven to be a game changer for literally everyone on the zodiac, but especially for you. You’re in a totally new place, trying to make a new line of work work for you, taking some risks to make the vision you have for the future a reality now.
But there’s something really scary about stepping out into the new, isn’t there? Even though you’re doing a relatively good job and have secured relatively good income, you’re just not sure it’s going to last. Like, how could it though? But don’t worry because… everything is working out exactly as it should right now. You are perfectly safe and perfectly secure. This solar eclipse will show you that, without a doubt, you’re on the right track right now.
Ok, so you know what’s weird Cancer? Everyone thinks you’re a softie. Everyone thinks you’re all marshmallows and tears inside, a shoulder to cry on, and soft eyes that listen intently to all your needs and worries. But the truth is you can be just as feisty and angry as all hell if someone messes with you or your friends, and you can hold on to that anger for much, much longer than anyone else. Even a Scorpio.
But honestly, that anger is going to get the better of you. You’re pretty emotional as is, so holding on to too much anger just infects your entire emotional body with agitation and anxiety, and then everyone can tell something’s up. So do something about it. Say what you need to say. Quit if you need to leave. Don’t fuck with anybody you don’t want to fuck with. But don’t hold on to the anger anymore.
Oof, okay Leo, you should be sitting down for this one. The solar eclipse is in your 12th house of the unconscious addictions. See, the problem with being the life of the party is that you’re never supposed to have a problem. It just doesn’t make for good party talk. Even in 2019 when we’re all trying to move through our ancestral trauma, no one wants to talk about it on the dance floor. It’s just not a thing.
You may have a hard time accepting your own feelings and moving through them sufficiently. This can sometimes look like giving them just enough time to breathe before shoving them down again or deciding to distract yourself with the latest exercise class / party invitation / social calendar thing / date instead of facing yourself head on. This has got to change, which will become apparent with this solar eclipse. I give you permission to express your feelings.
This Cancer Solar Eclipse is hitting you right where you feel it most—in your friendships and social relationships. You are a very dedicated and loyal friend, but sometimes despite your best effort, conflicts arise.
This solar eclipse is about healing the issues you have with others in your life now. Let go of the hurts and injuries done to you by others. Forgive betrayals. Forgive yourself for your past mistakes. Learn the lessons from past and joyously release what you’re holding on to. You deserve it. It doesn’t serve you to be holding on to things from years ago just because you don’t know how to move through it. Harmony isn’t about never having conflicts with others; it’s about learning how to move through them by allowing vulnerability to replace defensiveness.
You’re so focused on creating harmony with others that you put their needs before your own. I know that this helps make things feel easier in the moment, but in the long run, you’re putting miles and miles of barriers up between you and your goals. The problem is that you’re never going to get to where you want to go unless you accept that you’re sometimes going to have to step on some toes.
This solar eclipse is coming through to break down some of those walls babe. It’s time to take a chance on your own self and make some waves where you’ve created perfectly crafted yet precarious smooth sailing. You will release the preoccupation with how you’re going to disappoint your mom, not meet the same level as your siblings, or let down your friends by focusing on something new. Just go for it already!
Ok Scorpio, let’s get real—where have you been overdoing it because you’re scared of what will happen if you don’t? This solar eclipse is highlighting your house of excess and risk, so you’re definitely going to get a wake-up call about certain things you’re doing out of habit that no longer serve you, but you’re scared to let go.
We always talk about patterns that need to be released because we’re stuck, but in your case, you’re stuck because people expect certain patterns from you. Surprise them. Surprise yourself. This is the sign you’ve been waiting for to make that change and do the thing you’ve been wanting to step into. If they don’t like it, oh well. You’re a Scorpio. You’ll be fine.
It’s been a tough year. We started out with so much promise when Jupiter moved into your first house, guaranteeing you some swift movement and changes, and all of us astrologers were promising you good times and expansion. And then guess what happened? A little too much expansion A little too much elevation. A little too much of everything.
Now that Jupiter has gone retrograde, the changes slow down but you’re left holding all the pieces. Literally, you’re holding on to some-ish that has arisen this year in the ashes of all that shifting. But dear Sag, you are too much fire and brilliance to let that “ish” get you down. Release the resentment you’re holding towards institutions, people, friends, or past lovers who initiated some big changes in the big wheel spin of your life this year. They’re just serving a purpose girl, and so are you. You’re moving towards a better place, and it’s totally because of what has gone down. So thank them. And sashay away.
Dear Capricorn, there is nothing wrong with you. Absolutely nothing at all. You are lovable, kind, thoughtful, and are dedicated. And if you are currently wondering why you haven’t found a partner yet, or are feeling dissatisfied with the relationships you have, then you’re right on track for this solar eclipse to bust through some of your worries.
What needs to change isn’t anything about your personality, your charm or your style (because we know you’ve got it), what needs to change is your attitude about relationships. No one is here to complete you girl! I repeat. No one is here to complete you! Except you. You have to stop building these impossibly high expectations about love and relating as a way to build walls between you and those around you, and instead, start focusing on what your soft little heart needs in order to feel whole.
You are so hard on yourself Aquarius. Like, if I talked to myself the way you talked to yourself, I might end up being the perma-volunteer at every event and martyr of the friend group too. You are quite preoccupied with how much you’re doing for others whether you’re pulling your own weight or not, so I’m just going to let you in on a little secret: you’re definitely doing enough, right now.
Sure, you may have canceled plans last week because you needed a self-care day, and sometimes you’re not the first to offer to wash the dishes after the dinner at a friends house, but seriously: what do you really expect of yourself? It is at all reasonable? Or are you always going to find something to blame on yourself? Let it go. I love you. You love you. And you’re doing just fine.
This one’s going to be a tough solar eclipse, Pisces. What’s coming up for you is your own ego, the investment you have in your own image. Regardless of whether you are tuned into the cosmos and can ESP with your cat, like to watch The Office re-runs with spicy Cheetos, or are really just reading this horoscope to prove that you don’t believe in horoscopes, I want to tell you: you’re enough. You don’t have to prove anything to me.
So this solar eclipse, pay attention to situations that make you feel like you need to prove something. Because that’s exactly where you don’t want to be anymore. I want you to feel loved, recognized for your unique qualities, and appreciated for your contribution everywhere you go. People and places that don’t elicit that? Don’t belong here anymore.
