A bugle sounds for us to wake up from hiding this week. As the bugle sounds, the first strong winds of Summer Eclipse Season 2019 begin to blow in.
The first of 2 eclipses, however, does not arrive until July 2; nevertheless, the Full Moon in Sagittarius this week on Monday the 17th opens up the Eclipse Season. And Summer Solstice is also this week on Friday the 21st.
Summer Solstice on the 21st is at 11:54 AM EDT. This day is the day when light is at its greatest and dark is at its least. But dark minutes start growing right after the Summer Solstice and light begins to retreat.
Summer Solstice is also the beginning of having the Sun in Cancer for the next 30 days. The Sun in Cancer, the sign of Mother nature, shows us a time when Nature is in full bloom at its most abundant. Cancer is a sign of nurturance, like a Mother feeding a baby.
Cancer likes to be taken care of or to take care of others, and at its best loves unconditionally. At its worst it lacks boundaries and can hover over those it loves, giving them little room to breathe- hence the word s-mother.
This is a good month to be with family, whatever family truly means to you. Being supportive and being supported is in line with Cancer too.
The next 9 months or so will thrust us forward into new dimensions of Love and Truth, even as darker realities burst some bubbles of our illusions.
This Summer Eclipse Season 2019 will last into August, and it will bring with it the beginning of presidential debates in preparation for Election Day in November 2020.
Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 will be a climactic time period, which will include the powerful and important Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12, 2020. That conjunction will be right after and conjunct the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon In Cancer on January 10, 2020. (See webinar information below).
Right now, this week we awaken our spirits and souls with the Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius, which is only one day after an important Jupiter/Neptune square. That square has Jupiter in Sagittarius (its favorite place to be) squaring Neptune in Pisces (its favorite place to be) on Sunday June 16.
And both Jupiter and Neptune are part of the signature of the Sagittarius Full Moon the next day on June 17. Jupiter is widely conjunct the Moon, while Neptune in Pisces is square that Moon.
This is a lot of energy opening up. It may feel chaotic at times for some. Others may experience an opening into spiritual dimensions, with increased signs and synchronicities from the Universe.
The Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon is usually one that opens up the mind and stimulates a need to find resolution, meaning and understanding, even in the face of much information to sort out.
Lively conversation is usually opened up during this Sag Full Moon. Jumping to conclusions is common during this lunation. Enhanced intuition and rapid fire thinking are common at this full moon.
With Jupiter and Neptune also involved, some will get confused and/or out of usual mental balance.
If you can surrender your need to keep an agenda or fixed paradigm, you may open to new perceptions and judgments that will assist your growth.
And surrender is a good strategy for this week, a surrender to something greater and to a bigger picture of what is happening.
You may also this week get a good sense of what this Summer Eclipse Season is all about for you and for our world. What issues are needing to be focused on? What needs to be changed or transformed? What needs to be released? What do you need to let in?
Eclipse Seasons always shake us out of status quo reality and thinking. They take us off our usual balance so we can be more vulnerable to growing and evolving. They bring a greater energetic intensity too.
Besides the Solar Eclipse on July 2, there is a Lunar Eclipse on July 16; and mixed in with it all is Mercury being Retrograde from July 2 through July 31.
Back to this week: We have Jupiter square Neptune on Sunday June 16 (though it will be felt most of the week); Mercury making aspects to Neptune, Jupiter, and Saturn- also on the 16th.
Neptune is slowing down now to go Retrograde on Friday the 21st- the same day as the Summer Solstice. When a planet slows down to change directions its energy is much stronger. Confusion, chaos, as well as deeper insight and psychic abilities are enhanced with a strong Neptune. The Inner Kingdom beckons.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius is on the 17th, merging with the aforementioned Neptune aspect of the 16th. It may be too easy for some to be overwhelmed with information and details now.
It may also be challenging for some to find truth within all the clashing information and energy shifts.
That search for truth is our reality most of the time now. Everyone (most especially news media) is pushing an agenda and few seem to be interested in what is real or true if it does not fit into the agenda.
On Wednesday the 19th the conjunction of Mercury and Mars opposes Pluto. That is a very intense combination and very powerful. There is more likelihood to be involved in a war of words this week in our personal life conversations. Anger is too easy to feel and express now- be careful.
Even more dangerously, a war of words out in the world is getting more likely now. Even before this week, the USA and Iran have been thrust into near war.
The USA leadership is obviously setting us up for war with Iran, as it did similarly with Iraq and Libya. Remember Iraq being said to possess weapons of mass destruction?
Can “we the people” be that stupid again? The USA and Western World made an agreement with Iran under the Obama administration, and Iran is said to have complied.
Trump unilaterally “tore up” the agreement and now through increasing sanctions is pushing Iran into extreme economic difficulty.
We have made greater enemy of Russia and China also, with economic sanctions and tariffs on each of them.
Remember however, that all this Old World separation and enemy making is not our future. We are needing a deep purge of this old fecal matter from our collective unconscious.
The dark in our world is growing inside its walls of separation, while at the same time light is pushing through the cracks of those walls, wanting to inspire us to leave the darkened walls and to create a new world out in the fields of Nature.
That Nature so needs our loving embrace now, and we need its embrace too. The technological world we are building must stop its movement away from having healthy bodies and a healthy Earth to live on.
Technology has a very important role in the Age of Aquarius, but without a healthy Earth and healthy human bodies and souls to cradle it, all will vanish.
These next 9 months are crucial for what will happen on Election Day and after.
Let’s get a good start on it all this week as Summer Eclipse Season 2019 commences, as Summer Solstice occurs too.
The “reality” of the mainstream culture is distorted and toxified now. It is an old paradigm that we have been programmed into.
George Orwell was divinely inspired to write the book 1984. Look around at our world now. So many have forgotten how to truly think for themselves, on both sides of thinking. There is a conservative agenda’s mantra to follow and uniform to wear. And there is a liberal political correctness to follow and uniform to wear.
The New Age thrusts us outside the boxes, so we can think and feel for ourselves
Remember the movie Truman’s World with Jim Carrey? He was programmed from birth to believe real life was what he was experiencing every day. But his “real life” was just a set for the TV program he was constantly the star of, 24 hours a day- every day. His view of nature was in reality a made up television set. On the edges of the set, however unbeknownst to him, curtains could be opened to view and enter true Nature and the Real World.
There is no Age of Aquarius until enough people have left the programmed set and seen the beauty and wonder beyond the walls.

POWERFUL TRANSFORMATION at the SATURN-PLUTO CONJUNCTION with Leo Knighton Tallarico
WEBINAR / CLASS JUNE 22nd, 12noon – 4:30pm (EDT)
It is time for Powerful Transformation at the Saturn/Pluto conjunction as well as the July and January eclipses!!
In 2019 Saturn and Pluto get very close and in January 2020 they are exactly conjunct one another at the time of the eclipses.
Those two planets have an approximate 35 year cycle with one another, and when they meet up, most always show huge change in both personal and global life arenas.
What personal life changes can I expect during this time? How does the Saturn/Pluto conjunction fit into my natal chart?
What is the history of world changes with Saturn/Pluto meetings?
What events can be expected in the world and in the USA over the next 2-3 years?
How does the Age of Aquarius fit in with all this?
All these questions will be answered, and yet we will also give some preliminary glance at the charts of presidential candidates.
Please join us for this one day class/webinar live on June 22nd between 12 noon and 4:30 PM EDT. Cost is $120, payable through PayPal.
