“Every life is in many days, day after day. We walk through ourselves, meeting robbers, ghosts, giants, old men, young men, wives, widows, brothers-in-love, but always meeting ourselves.”- James Joyce
Effective Date: July 2nd
Helios’ Astrological Angle on the Solar Eclipse in Cancer- Timing. So much of our lives comes down to timing, and it can make the difference between our successes and our failures. Where we go, who we meet, the things we say and how we react… so much can be done or missed in an instant, and each little moment cascades into others, causing a domino effect that affects each moment following it. Every second we are out here creating our future, and we go through it blissfully unaware of what we are doing at any moment. We get stuck in our routines, our ruts, and just focus on the next thing in front of us- Not today, Heretics. Eclipses, especially Solar ones, are here to get your attention, to grab you by the cojones and shake you out of your malaise. These are OMENS, y’all, and you best take heed.
Again, the theme for this one is Time. It will give you a heightened awareness of your movements in this world and what you are doing in it. The pressure will be on you to prove your worth to the harshest judge imaginable- Yourself.
The Sun & Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto– Y’all this one is HEAVY. These Titans ruling over these darkened skies will demand much of you right now, and you’re not sure if you’re up to the challenge. The biggest thing that you will notice will be a heightened sense of worthlessness rising up within you, seemingly from nowhere. You will be confronted with the ghosts of your failed or lost dreams and ambitions- Why couldn’t you make them work? Were they not enough, or were you not up to the challenge of making them real? What happened, when did you give up and why? These will be the hard questions you will be forced to answer with this eclipse, and you might as well hear them from me first. Of course, you can try shirking these answers but you’ll just be trapped in the hall of mirrors that is your own misery and regret for six months, and that doesn’t solve anything, now does it?
Listen to me and listen good, Heretics- You are exactly where you need to be and at the exact right time. Comparing yourself to people like Kylie Jenner, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, our idiot president (or your ex with connections who is thriving now, infuriatingly) is useless. Their path is their own. Their timing is their own. Your path is here, now, and unfolds in perfect harmony. You need to stop, breathe, and refuse to allow the demons in your mind to pressure you and make you second guess all your choices and actions. When the thoughts creep in, retort with what the experience taught you, for good or ill. Shout down your own brain, we don’t have time to sit around and mope anymore- there’s work to be done.

Mercury, Mars, Uranus, and Chiron– Speaking of the work, this is NOT a time where you are to sit by indolently. Stop taking yourself out of your own life, damnit! Listen, you can’t sit there wanting a better life for yourself while taking no action to MAKE it better. If you have a dream or desire, go pursue it! Get out there and ENGAGE with your world. Take any action, regardless of how imperfect it is when you start. Listen, a job 50% done is 100% better than not done at all. It does you no good to keep it on a shelf and look at it wistfully, dreaming of what could have been. IT IS NOT TOO LATE FOR YOU. The only limits are in your mind. Get out there, TRY SOMETHING. Literally anything! You could be wildly successful beyond anything you imagined. Just stop sitting on your duff letting the world pass you by- It may have beat you down, but don’t let it win, not without the fight of your life. Get back in the game, guys!
Venus– This will be tough. Listen, I get it- You’ve already been through so much, you’re past the breaking point, and definitely don’t think you can do this. You don’t have it in you. That’s what’s going through your head. Another round when all you want is the bell to ring so you can go home and collapse? No, it’s not you- But it used to be. After all, that’s how you got here. You made it through so much, went further than you ever thought possible, and did everything up to this. You’re here, armed with so much more experience and wisdom than younger you had- That smartmouthed kid who knew so much and was so much smarter than everyone else…. meanwhile they could all see the act he was putting on and who he was trying to be, and loved him anyway. What pains you right now is the lack of love and support that you are feeling, that no one has your back- But do you have your own? Or have you become so beat down by the world that you are willing to tear off crucial bits of yourself, sacrificing your soul just to get through? I know it doesn’t feel like it anymore, but you still have a future, and it’s worth fighting for. You have to prop yourself up right now and give yourself the love you need from the world.
Minor Planets used: Rhadamanthus
It will be tough to make it through this time y’all, but I promise you that you can do this. I believe in you. Trust me for once, okay?
Stay in the fight, Heretics.
