I’ve been equating the buildup to the July 1 Cancer solar eclipse with the pressure that turns blobs of carbon into diamonds. That’s what we are right now. Some of us are blubbering blobs. Some of us are damned uncomfortable blobs. Some of us are animals acting so strangely that our people are calling the vet. But we’re all carbon being pressed into a no-going-back transformation.
It’s easy to say we’ll be bright and sparkly when we get to the other side. Thing is, that “other side” is a long ways off. So for now, trace the pressure into yourself. Don’t numb or run from the discomfort. Sit with it. Consider why it’s there. What needs to change. What is changing.
My full article on the eclipse discusses this process at length and includes pointers to my articles about all the eclipses since July 2009 in the Cancer/Capricorn cycle that’s peaking now. Read it here.

Mating turtles shut down a runaway at JFK airport yesterday as love goddess Venus crossed the South Node, in the sign of Gemini, which rules things that move through the air. Like airplanes. Which didn’t, while the critters responded to the South Node mandate’s for instinctual behavior.

To mark the solstice, Eli the Chihuahua returns to assist with a short Tarot forecast for Summer 2011:
It’s been exhausting, hasn’t it? Pace yourself. The intensity isn’t dying back just yet. Instead, it’s changing its tune.
We have to multi-task this week. Mars, the planet of action, is moving into Gemini, the sign of every-which-way-but-sitting-still. Our minds, conversations and plans will be spoking out impulsively and splaying our beings across reality.
Not to mention that we are on the bridge between eclipse cycles. The up-and-coming cycle, on the Gemini-Sagittarius axis, has spawned most of the dramas that have been consuming us for the past few weeks. While those dramas are still very much alive, the final stage of the outgoing cycle is ramping up. The build-up to July’s Cancer solar eclipse is impelling us to finalize all those changes in our personal foundation we’ve been pondering for the past two years.

As revelations and news of endings bombard you this week, here’s one tactic well worth adopting: Unplug. Stop passing the gossip. Step out of the torrent of information that flows through technology non-stop. Log out of Facebook and Twitter. Leave the computer. Don’t answer calls and texts as they come in; don’t even look at them immediately. Shut off the barrage. Let the flow drain out of you. Just be. Then listen. What’s that you hear? Could it be — your thoughts? Your voice? Your guidance?
