New moon in watery Cancer. A total solar eclipse cauldron of energy complicates Cancer’s normal emotional focus today. The world may seem even more wild and chaotic than usual — like you are at sea in the midst of a big storm. Solar eclipses carry the energy of transformative shift, and the journey through a big shift can be quite intense.
This too shall pass.
Find a way to ground and anchor yourself. Use comfort foods, music, movement and other activities that tend to calm you. Avoid the news if you find yourself stirred up to the point of anxiety.
New moon and total eclipse energy will catalyze any intentions that you set now. But get in a calm, collected frame of mind first.
