On Friday July 13, has been a special day. The CANCER NEW MOON, at 12.47 pm, was also a PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE on the 20th/21st degrees of this CARDINAL WATER SIGN. This cosmic event could manifest as a significant new beginning and even a life changing turn of events for people whose Birth Horoscope happens to be aligned by Conjunction to this or a close degree of your Sun, Moon or any of the Personal Planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) or of the Four Angles (Ascendant, Descendant, Mid-Heaven and Lower-Heaven). The above is true not only for CANCER but for all other Cardinal Signs, CAPRICORN (by Opposition), and ARIES/LIBRA (by Square). The effect of Eclipses is often long lasting, extending for months and even years past the actual event.
On June 21, at 8.07 pm, the Sun entered the Cardinal Water Sign of Cancer, marking the Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere, and Summer Solstice in the Northern.
The Sun will transit Cancer until July 23, 7 am, with the ingress into Leo.
The WAXING MOON TRANSITS LIBRA from Wednesday, July 18, 5.42 am, to Friday, July 20, 11.12 am, with the ingress into SCORPIO.
The VIRGO CRESCENT MOON PHASE starts on Monday July 16, 5.51 pm, and ends on Friday, July 20, 5.52 am, with the LIBRA FIRST QUARTER MOON PHASE .

Dear reader, please notice that, at the moment, I am busy streamlining the navigation on my site, in the hope of making it easier for you to find the articles you may be interested in. I realized recently that the site is difficult to navigate because of the way it has been structured, in a blog form, with recent articles on top and old ones lost in the great beyond. While searching myself for a post I had written few years back I was unable to find it! I am now collecting all the posts on similar subjects under the same heading on the menu bar. There is in fact lots more to this site that it is apparent at first.
This is still a work in process and will take some time. Thank you for your support throughout the years, Paola Emma4
