Big changes are ahead, thanks in part to a powerful Solar Eclipse in tender-hearted Cancer on July 12, 2018. We should expect opportunities and transitions alike that center on Cancer-related themes such as home and family, tradition, and emotional fulfillment. With the eclipse coming in at an opposition to transformative and empowering Pluto, this eclipse calls us to step into our power by stepping outside of our comfort zone. With both the Sun and Moon in Cancer, fueling our desire for security, it can be all too easy to cling to what feels safe and familiar; even if that familiarity no longer serves us. However, the power of this eclipse will help us to get emotionally honest with ourselves and others in terms of what we need and what we don’t.
