Astrobutterfly ~ The Astrology of June 2020: Solar Eclipse in Cancer (+ My Own Notes on this Month’s Alignments)

Here’s another terrific big picture overview by Astrobutterfly. I’ll just add that in addition to what she mentions here:

June 3rd, 2020 – Venus Conjunct Sun

On June 3rd, Venus retrograde is conjunct the Sun at 13° Gemini, and a new 584-day Venus cycle begins.

This is when Venus leaves her nightgown and transforms into a morning star. Venus is still invisible, burned by the Sun. But it is in the purifying heat of the Sun where we will experience a rebirth of the heart.

Read more about this process of metamorphosis here: Venus’ Descent Into The Underworld – From Evening Star To Morning Star.

A recent dream alerted me to the importance of 13 Gemini and 13 Pisces on Monday into Tuesday, right before Venus conjuncts the Sun at 13 Gemini. It turns out this pivotal event when Venus begins her new cycle, also squares Mars and the asteroid Nessus at 13 Pisces. Astrobutterfly talks about Mars as the planet of action, but with Mars also conjunct Nessus, a centaur that can indicate “obsession” and “cycles of abuse,” we see more clearly the dynamics that this Venus reset aims to shift. Look at any relationships with cycles of abuse — whether in their own right, or in generational, ancestral and societal patterns of abuse.

As usual the alignments of June 2020 hit uncannily precise spots in my natal chart. My natal Venus is within minutes of 13 degrees Gemini, and my natal Mars is at 10 degrees 10 minutes Pisces, exactly (to the minute) conjunct my mom’s Mars. Nessus has been hanging around that area for awhile now since centaurs move slowly, but to have Nessus conjunct both transiting and my natal Mars, square Venus at the moment of a new Venus cycle — right on my own natal Venus? Wowza.

In addition to the Sun-Mars square that day, the June 5 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius conjuncts my natal Juno, an asteroid connected with relationships, especially romantic ones. Mercury will turn direct right on my natal Vesta, the keeper of the flame, vestal virgin and a different kind of relationship asteroid. When the Sun conjuncts the collective North Node on June 19, it also conjuncts David’s natal Venus and my progressed Saturn. As Astrobutterfly notes:

The Solar Eclipse in Cancer is a North Node eclipse. Unlike South Node eclipses, which have a karmic flavor, North Node eclipses are opportunities to rewrite the script of our destiny.

The North Node is like a vortex – anything is possible when we have a North Node Eclipse. But be mindful of what you do. Because there will always be a payout – usually at a future South Node eclipse. 

The Sun is conjunct the North Node once every year. This is the best day of the year to ask yourself “Who am I really?” “What is my true purpose? What is my life path?”

Notice the first answer that comes to you. Gemini has a curious, open-minded vibe. It is important that you don’t try to seek confirmations or validations to existing assumptions during this time.

Instead – be like a Gemini. Be open-minded. Welcome new perspectives. Accept that you don’t yet have all the answers. 

(Laura again): If you’ve not read my North Node Horoscopes for June, you can read Catherine’s intro and find the link to them here. I’ve shared only some of my own uncanny, personal transits this month, but make no mistake: everyone will feel at least a few of these astro events. We’re talking major shift potential. Do give some thought to any cycles of abuse that you’d like to resolve and/or release. The alignment on June 1-3 seems extra potent for both clarity and healing.

Again, you can find Astrobutterfly’s full write-up here.

    These topics are very much top of mind for me, and have been for the last couple months.

    For me, the start of this period manifested as an honest accounting of my behavior, and the underlying motives.

    I’m not saying I’m 100% “there” yet, but I do absolutely feel this as a time to shed my old skin for a new one, one that more accurately reflects who I am as I came into this world, versus who I was as a result of the early abuse and trauma I experienced.

    Don’t get me wrong, there are gifts in that shadow, but it feels time to let go of who I became because of the abuse; a receptacle for abusers’ self-hate, unable to trust from a living in a place of fear, lashing out and puffing up to scare people away, etc.

    I’m finding forgiveness where none existed previously and it’s truly one of the most beautiful gifts one can give to themselves. Spirit has shown up in big ways to support this endeavor. It’s been quite stunning.

    Btw… I had a very vivid dream years back (2013?) of the numbers 10 and 13. The numbers were graphically represented as hand drawn and they zoomed into view from oblivion. First the 10 smacked me in the forehead, then the 13 right behind it. This post jogged that memory.

    Thank you, as always for the thought provoking posts! 😊

    • Wow, thanks for sharing, Seattle72. This is so good to hear! I had a powerful dream this morning (and my laptop reset overnight, which always indicates a big shift for me). The dream resulted in new clarity of ways I protected my child self from abuse and not to feel guilty for having done so — that it had saved her much pain, that I had internalized “the good patriarch” who knew how to keep her safe, happy and innocent. It was a forgiveness kind of dream — releasing any guilt for the ways in which I parented myself when necessary. I’m so glad to hear that you’re having this beautiful awakening and healing. 🙂

    I don’t know the scientifics of this but FEEL it

  5. Wow that makes a lot of sense now! Especially about Nessus and I also think it’s uncanny how the cases of abducted children such as Madelein McCain and here in Aus William Tyrell are coming to light with new discoveries! Does this also connect to what your saying?

    • Yes, I would say so. Also, with Pluto in Capricorn a lot of dark, shadow stuff is going to keep coming out. That’s the background, long term transit, and then these other astro events sometimes highlight it in very key ways.

  6. Also what if this eclipse falls close to my natal north node (5deg Cancer) does this mean I will re-write my destiny? Re-align my path for the future?

    • It gives you opportunities, although I find that the North Node is most sensitive within 1-2 degrees on either side. If something aspects the NN, you’ll feel it, or life will present things/people/events/opportunities that feel Fated. You’ll experience the eclipse because it’s a major event, but for really strong effects personal to your North Node, I’d expect that to require a little closer aspect.
