When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
Okay, so the Moon won’t be in your 7th house as the Now Age of Aquarius begins. That privilege is reserved for Capricorns. You do however have a full Moon in your 1st on December 30th – shining back into your 7th. Plus, Jupiter won’t align with Mars. It will however, meet Saturn in your 8th of empowerment, transformation, sharing and yes, sex on December 21. Which is when we can say the Now Age of Aquarius is cosmically underway.
First, we are in mutable weather with the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Juno in Sagittarius. Neptune and Ceres in Pisces. Plus, the North Node in Gemini and Vesta in Virgo. And mutable eclipse weather too with a total solar eclipse in Sagittarius on the 14th. The day when Mercury will oppose the North Node in Gemini. This is a karmic eclipse for many and will take us back to 2002 – or even further in 19-year cycles.
Marie Kondo your World
Let’s begin by looking at your 6th house. It rules your day job whether this is paid or unpaid. Your routine, habits, course of study, your pets, your health, what you do or surround yourself with on a daily basis, your exercise routine or lack thereof, your diet, that mind/body/spirit connection and your work/life balance. As well as details, schedules, systems, timetables and ‘To do’ lists. It’s where we get organised. Your 6th is the sign of Sagittarius which is a mutable sign. ‘Mutable’ means changing.
So, the new beginning promised by the new Moon in here on the 14th, is subject to change. Eclipses conceal or cover-up. When we have a total eclipse the cover-up is just that. We are totally in the dark about something.
Check your chart first for any factors at 23 degrees. Especially in any of the mutable signs – Gemini, Virgo and Pisces as well as Sagittarius. If you are unsure then one of our knowledgeable astrologers can help you. If you have chart factors at 23 degrees of ANY sign, then this eclipse will impact you in a personal way on some level. Even if this involves events at a distance.
Personally, there may be a situation around your work or study that will shift. Mercury which rules this house is in here at the time of the eclipse. Yes, it is direct. But that still does not rule out those goal posts being moved around your role or that offer. Because this is a house of health, we need to talk about the current Covid situation. Pay close attention to guidelines.
Also pay extra close attention to how what you do, where you spend your day, what you eat, think or take into your body and how organised you are. The way to deal with anything this eclipse may be hiding for you is first to rely on that famous ‘gut’ feeling of yours, Cancer. And second to have a plan and stick to it. So, organise your day, look to the small stuff and if necessary, break it down into a timetable or schedule. Feel the sheer satisfaction each day of seeing just how much you get done the more focussed you are.
It’s this kind of thinking that makes dealing with any eclipse revelations later so much easier. Also, if you are handed any kind of news relating to wellbeing or an important work issue – or even that of your pet, second opinions or fact checking are recommended at this time. And I am talking about professional opinions. Not those of that Facebook group.
Stick with your gut during this time no matter what. Out of this eclipse may come permanent lifestyle or work adjustments. These may begin with small changes but ones that have powerful ripple effects into all other areas of your life.
Choices and decisions you made 19 years ago if you are old enough, may also return. Perhaps to be re-instated or to be released and replaced with something better thanks to those 6th house planets opposing the North Node in your 12th. Especially during this time look to what ideas you may have ‘inherited’ from your family around all the 6th house issues I’ve touched on. And look at whether they work for you – or not.
Let’s get talking togetherness
Mercury lands in your 7th of lasting love and dynamic duos of all descriptions on the 20th. Solstice Day sees the Sun follow. Conversations between you and another are likely to have added depth and resonance now. Also, if you are seeking love, forget anything superficial. You want it ALL. The magnetic attraction, the resonance, the chemistry and the depth.
Partnerships may have gone through challenges these past few years. Some of you may have found the love of your life. While others may have lost the person they thought would be a big part of it. Or simply found love hard to ground. The reason being the heavy planetary weather you have been under in your 7th.
This could have intensified since the end of 2017 when Saturn first entered here. And peaked in 2020 when we had the life-changing conjunction between Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and Ceres in Capricorn in January. Since then, you’ve been asked to get serious about what you want from a partnership. ‘Put a ring on it’ in other words – symbolised by Saturn’s rings. Big decisions – either way. Jupiter’s entrance in here was tempered by the presence of Saturn. But Jupiter always wants to expand our experience. So, even if things did not work out for you, you should be emerging from it with knowledge about what you truly need from a partnership no matter how this was gained.
Can’t buy me love
Lennon and McCartney said it. Money can’t buy it. And here’s the upside. Because there always is one. Many of us are now emerging from this cycle with a new perspective on what really matters. This has also been due to Uranus’s presence in what is your 11th and Uranus’s ruling house. Freedom, truth, beauty, love. The truth around what matters in other words. Along with those restrictions, it’s refined your value system and what you will and won’t sacrifice in the name of love. As well as holding out for what you really want.
On December 17, Saturn finally leaves your 7th. Not to return for another 29 years! You should feel the change in the air almost immediately. Especially when Jupiter follows two days later. The 21st also brings us one of the most powerful solstice events of the decade. Not only does the Sun arrive in your 7th. But this is the day when Jupiter and Saturn meet in your 8th at zero degrees of Aquarius. And marks what will be the ‘official’ start of the Now Age.
Check your chart again for any aspects at zero degrees of any sign. This includes your ascendant or rising sign, descendant, IC or midheaven as well as your North Node. Again, if you need more insight, one of our astrologers can help you.
Having it all
Again, this goes back to you needing that alchemical mix of attraction and depth for any connection to last. Whether this is a present one or a potential one. This is also about what’s in that vault of yours. And dragging it out into the light. Working with it rather than keeping it locked away. Saturn in here says all those parts of you that you judge and think others will judge you for – in them lies your true power. So, if you are seeking love or more depth in a current union, time to integrate them.
Deep stuff may emerge now. There’s been a lot in the media lately about having to create a ‘false persona’ to survive a trauma. If you are one of those souls who have been injured in this way and have had to put on a mask to survive, the healing power of these two in your 8th is going to hand you the ability to finally take it off for good. And allow the world to see who you really are. Which in turn opens you up to getting the love you’ve been seeking all along. Please, if this is your story, reach out if you need to in order to help you through this process. Our readers are here to help. But if you feel you need to talk to a counsellor or therapist, see this as the ultimate repair process and act of self-love.
That vault door may also open to allow you access to new resources. Again, this is your house of sharing, legacies and big money. By that I don’t mean a lottery win. And there is more than one kind of legacy than being left something in a will – although that is a possibility for many under this cycle.
At some point during the Now Age, you will be given the opportunity to have access to or handle greater sums of money than you have done before. Saturn wants us to take on responsibility. Jupiter wants to expand. Taking a better paying job or starting a side hustle are two possibilities. As are taking out a mortgage or loan or in your case, crowdfunding is a distinct possibility. You may find yourself the beneficiary of benefits or perks. Or someone may simply put their resources at your disposal. Anything from a horse to a house.
If you do find yourself in charge or given access to someone else’s money or other assets, please be upfront and scrupulously honest in your dealings. Getting access to more during the Now Age will be linked to other people. Your boss, that backer or bank manager. That partner, spouse – present or potential one. How powerful and comfortable you feel about asking and negotiating will have a big impact on your outcomes too.
Again, you need the real you to go to bat for you if you have been spending your life denying them or being forced to cover them up. So get ready to reveal them at the end of the month when the full Moon appears in your 1st on the 30th. Make your New Year’s #1 resolution to be no one but who you were always meant to be as the final day of 2020 sees Venus in your 6th oppose the North Node in your 12th. Being anyone else just holds you back from what you’re seeking. 2021 and the Now Age needs the real, empowered you to shine.
In a nutshell: Been waiting for ‘your turn’, Cancer? How powerful to you feel when it comes to asking for or having what you want? December could just hand you the keys to the vault. Or bring a new kind of empowerment for the Now Age.
