Capricorn Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, June 26, 2010


Summer Solstice, June 21, 2010

Lunar Eclipse

This cosmic grand cross . . . aligns with the Super Galactic Center (SCG). . .a colossal Black Hole with the mass of billions of suns, around which the Milky Way and many other galaxies revolve. Powerful electromagnetic transmissions emanating from the SGC act as a spiritual beacon, triggering memories of our cosmic origins and destiny." (Stephanie Austin, Mountain Astrologer, #151)

Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, occurs on Monday, June 21, 2010 at 4:30am PDT/ 7:30am EDT/ 11:30am GMT. This is the day the "sun stands still' (solstice) and hangs in the northern sky before it starts its journey south again. In this natural rhythm of life and growth, death and rebirth, Summer Solstice turns the Wheel of the Year to the sacred marriage between Heaven and Earth, a celebration of life and light. (I'd like to take a moment to shout out to our friends in the Southern Hemisphere who are celebrating Winter Solstice and the birth of the Light!)

At this Summer Solstice when the sun stands still for three days, let us take time to slow down and find out what we really value about our lives. This year, the sacred marriage of Heaven and Earth must become the marriage of a new feminine consciousness married to a new masculine consciousness. And it is our duty to become the conscious connection between Heaven and Earth, just as the kings and priestesses of old did for their people.

This Summer Solstice is weighty and intense. Of course, we don't need to look to the heavens to know that, we just have to look at the challenges the world faces oil polluting our oceans, revolutions, wars, lack of real leadership. But in looking to the heavens, and reading the archetypal Cosmic Story, we evoke and understand the energies involved and consciously channel the chaos into new form. We get to take part in creation.

And believe it or not, we are also called to celebrate in the midst of this death and destruction in the Gulf, the wars and hunger ravaging the world, and the fierce imagination of the end of Time. We celebrate life in hard times to ensure our faith in the promise of new Life. We gather and celebrate to energize ourselves, to renew our passion, to engender our purpose. We are called to co-create the future.

We are standing at the crossroads. We can make a deal with the Devil (as Robert Johnson claimed) or step into our collective destiny and bring greater Light into the world. Now is the time; wherever you live is the place. Your assignment: to work with the Cosmic energies of change and help move us forward in a new direction, both personally and collectively. We are at the hero/ine's stage of the Pluto/Uranus (+Saturn) cycle. This first week of Cancer is another beginning, as the Sun in Cancer becomes the 4th Leg of the Cosmic T-square, grounding these dynamic energies in the primeval Waters of Life.

It is our job to let our emotional intelligence become the 4th leg, grounding and integrating these energies in a conscious way. We need to open our hearts to the wildlife deaths in the Gulf, the oily pollution of our Mother Ocean, the degradation of our Mother Earth. We are called to recognize that we are part of the Earth and one among many of her children. Just as our collective hearts opened after the Christmas tsunami in pain for the loss of human life, let us open ourselves to the pain of Mother Earth.

Let us lead with our hearts and feel the Sacrifice that our Mother Earth is making to teach us an important lesson. The waters of the Earth will be purified once again, but we won't be here to see it, especially if we ignore the sacrifice and don't change our ways. We need to honor the sacrifices of the animals and birds and waters by opening ourselves to transformation through our own sacrifice of what is selfish and greedy, unconscious and cruel in ourselves. We have to let go of fear and embrace Love acknowledging the Divine connection between the universe and all its creatures - not just as an ideal, but as an embodied consciousness.

That can happen even instantaneously - next weekend on the Capricorn Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. The Moon symbolizes our emotional body our needs and how we are nurtured; how we seek fulfillment and integrate our life's experiences. The Moon symbolizes the unconscious part of our psyches, the emotional patterns of our early years that shaped our response to life.

During a lunar eclipse, the Sun, Earth and Moon all align and the Earth, blocking the sunlight, casts its shadow on the Moon, stopping the flow of solar and cosmic energies to our emotional bodies. A moment of released pressure; a cosmic portal into the Shadowlands. Lunar eclipses energize the release and collapse of old emotional patterns, opening up space for new life and new emotions to take hold.

The Capricorn Lunar Eclipse occurs on June 26, 2010 at 11:31am GMT/ 7:31am EDT/ 4:31am PDT. Eclipses usually mean a crisis of some sort, which isn't necessarily bad. "Eclipses represent a rip or tear in the fabric of space/time, through which the forces of chaos and disorder can enter or exit our world and our lives'. (Gary Caton) This rip can let in the spiritual energies from the Super Galactic Center to midwife a new consciousness.

This intense lunar eclipse involves 7 out of 10 planets, forming 12 squares that challenge us to change and 6 oppositions that demand to be integrated. When we channel these energies consciously, we can create with them. If we ignore these energies, they will disrupt our lives. Once again, the choice is ours. Will we answer the call to consciously co-create?

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
