Solar eclipses are known as the triggers for new initiatives, or projects and/or new paths. When the eclipse happens on a cardinal sign, associated with action and initiative, at 29 degrees or within the first degree of the sign, it is said to have a transformative characteristic, and is more powerful in its energy compared to the rest of the Solar eclipses. If we add that the eclipse coincides with the start of one of the four seasons, it is most significant. These eclipses are very rare, and usually they signify events that will be remember for a long time.
The eclipse of June 21 happens at 0 degrees 21 minutes in the sign of Cancer, bringing it into the above category. It is worth remembering that the energy generated will materialize depending on the actions taken, since the results are not guaranteed by the only fact that there is an eclipse. Whether for positive as negative things, the outcome will depend on how that energy is managed.
A weapon can be used for hunting an animal and be able to feed or can be used to commit a crime. The weapon is the same, the way it is used is what varies. The same goes for the energies generated by the eclipses.
The sign of Cancer, which is associated with the image of the mother and mother earth, in a country, is associated with its population. The sign of Cancer as well the citizens of the country, are represented by the Moon.
In the human body, the sign of Cancer, as mentioned in our article on the second part of the pandemic, has to do with the lungs, bust, chest, breasts, ribs, cartilage, diaphragm, stomach, liver and gastric region. The Sun represents the government of the country. In the case of the eclipse of the Sun, the Moon (the people) will cover the light of the Sun (government).
A Lunar eclipse is interpreted as an internal process where the subconscious, thoughts or different emotions are activated, while a solar eclipse is interpreted as the external manifestation, through actions or situations. The signs, planets and aspects between the eclipse location and the natal chart gives the guidelines for interpretation.
In the specific case of Argentina, this eclipse happens at 6 degrees of Mercury, which is in conjunction with Venus in the natal chart, and squares with Mars in transit in conjunction with Natal Pluto in House VI.
Natal Pluto is located in house VI of health and work, and by having a hard aspect, such as the conjunction with Mars, and the square with the eclipse, talks of energies that are activated affecting both the work and health environments of the country.
Mercury, which is part of the eclipse, refers to economics, communications and travel. If there was no negative aspect, we could even say that this eclipse was going to give a boost to the themes concerning Mercury, also because of the good aspect with the natal Jupiter, but by having the square of Pluto, this has to be interpreted as the negative manifestation of those aspects.
Just to have a better understanding on how the energy of an eclipse can manifest, it is worth mentioning than on June 21, 2001, there was also an eclipse of the Sun at 0 degree of Cancer. It is not a common thing for a solar eclipse to repeat itself to the same degree of a given zodiacal sign, and that is why the reason for this article. Looking back, we did not find any similar eclipse during the twenty century.
In the eclipse of 2001, Jupiter was part of it by been at 5 degrees from the Sun and the Moon, which also had natal Mercury and Venus participating. The only negative aspect was the square with Pluto (like the one we have in 2020). We could say that overall, there were more positive aspects than negative, and there were energies present for a favorable change.
Because of wrong administration and government management and actions, the result was that negative conditions prevailed over the rest, and by December there was a general financial and social crisis that ended up with the president resigning from office.
This makes it clear, that far beyond the possibilities presented by astrology, in this particular case, the result will depend on the actions taken by those responsible for leading the country.
At this moment, the current situation is more complicated given by the movement restrictions imposed on the population, commerce, national debt negotiations and payments, on top of the global uncertainty.
The presence of Pluto in the eclipse, and with Mars in transit in the house of health and work, speaks clearly of what the current problem is, which can be intensified in the months after the eclipse. The effect will remain active for at least 6 months after the eclipse.
The eclipse on House IX of foreign lands and justice system, with the presence of Mercury and Venus natal in that house, speaks of the relationship with other countries regarding trade and debt, as well as internal negotiations for possible reforms in the justice system.
From the day of the eclipse until the end of 2020, we will see how events unfold, but it will be hardly a normal or stable period, and the outcome will depend on government’s actions and how the people with react to them. These actions could minimize or maximize the energies that are going to be present because of the eclipse.
