Solar Eclipse June 21, 2020 – Freedom Vs Restrictions

Solar Eclipse June 2020 AstrologyThe Cancer new moon on Sunday, June 21, 2020, is a solar eclipse. The main influence on solar eclipse June 2020 comes from the planet Saturn, causing an imbalance between personal freedom and responsibility, between self-expression and restriction.

The new moon June 2020 solar eclipse joins a star that gives initiative and enthusiasm, but also a tendency toward pleasure-seeking, impulsiveness, and recklessness. So this is an eclipse phase for a patient, cautious and responsible attitude. But flexibility and open-mindedness are also needed as you adapt to changes in the level of restrictions in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Solar Eclipse Meaning

A solar eclipse is just like a regular new moon where the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun. However, a solar eclipse is more powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun. Solar Eclipse June 2020 is an annular solar eclipse so not all of the Sun will be darkened. In this type of partial eclipse, the apparent diameter of the Moon is smaller than the Sun’s, leaving a ring of light around the eclipsed Sun.

The strongest and most important aspect of astrology is Sun conjunct Moon. It means all possibilities are on the table and you can rightly put yourself at the forefront of new plans for the future. This is the ideal time to make a fresh start, so write your new goals on paper. Question your old habits and behaviors as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

The new moon June 2020 solar eclipse at 00°21′ Cancer makes just one significant planetary aspect as shown in the chart below. Although a solar eclipse quincunx Saturn may be termed a minor aspect, it is an important influence in this case because the aspect orb is only 0°19′.

So balancing personal freedoms against responsibility and restrictions is a major theme for this eclipse. A fixed star at 00°11′ Cancer also has an effect on this solar eclipse. A strong influence with an orb of only 0°10′.

Solar eclipse quincunx Saturn creates an imbalance between what you want to do and what you have to do. Your freedom or self-expression may be hampered by certain restrictions and obligations.

The mix of freedom versus restriction is likely to change during this eclipse phase. So it is important to be flexible, adaptable, and open-minded as you adjusting to greater or fewer responsibilities or barriers to progress. Hard work, patience, self-restraint, and self-discipline are also needed.

You may have to take the time off work because of an illness or to look after a sick family member. As a result, your career may suffer. On the other hand, extra responsibilities may be placed on you at work that means you have to miss out on something important in your personal life.

Feeling constantly torn between competing responsibilities can also lead to increasing tension. In extreme cases, it may all seem like too much to bear, or overwork could lead to physical exhaustion or illness.

Trying to find a compromise is difficult but even minor adjustments may restore balance. Avoid wasting valuable time by procrastinating. Take one thing at a time and focus on your most important responsibility first.

New June 2020 Solar Eclipse [Stellarium]

There are three major fixed stars within orb of solar eclipse June 2020, technically. But the list below shows that Menkalinan is far closer by degree than Betelgeuse and Polaris.

  • 28 ♊ 50 – α Ursae Minoris, Polaris
  • 29 ♊ 01 – α Orionis, Betelgeuse
  • 00 ♋ 11 – β Aurigae, Mekalinan
  • 00 ♋ 21 – Solar Eclipse June 2020

Mekalinan on the left shoulder of the Charioteer (Auriga Constellation) gives great initiative, high enterprise, and enthusiasm. [1] But caution and objective second thoughts are needed because of impulsive, reckless, combative, and destructive nature. [2]

It may cause ruin, disgrace, and a violent death because of excess pleasure-seeking. [3] Only when really in good aspect is this fixed star rated as a positive acting one. Badly positioned, this star will be most unhelpful. [4]

Solar Eclipse June 2020 Summary

The major theme of the June 21 solar eclipse is balancing your personal freedom and self-expression, with changing levels of restrictions and responsibilities. To avoid increasing tension, flexibility and adaptability are needed.

The fixed star gives enthusiasm and initiative but also a tendency toward pleasure-seeking, impulsiveness, and recklessness. This stresses the need implied by Saturn, for a patient, cautious and responsible approach to new personal freedoms or new restrictions, especially in relation to the coronavirus pandemic.

For the next two weeks, the June 21 solar eclipse themes will complement the themes of the June 5 lunar eclipse (impatience, sexual frustration, and lack of self-control). Then, it will complement the themes of the July 5 lunar eclipse, through to November 30, 2020.If this solar eclipse directly affects your Sun Sign you can read about it in your free Monthly Horoscope.

  1. This eclipse is bang on President Xi’s progressed/solar arc MC to the degree and also his MC by 2 degree orb.

    • That’s interesting Donny.

      This eclipse is On the Cusp of Magic, and the surprises keep coming.

      Summer Solstice 2020

      This article had a lot to do with setting up Cosmogenesis art, published October 31, 2019, on the Precession of the Equinoxes thread.

      • The surprises sure keep coming. The recent Venus ♀ Rx in Gemini ♊ will pass by his natal impressive stellium, with the impending Mars ♂ Rx later this year passing over his natal Venus ♀ – MC point in late Aries ♈ too.

        • Bill Gates is the first person to have his chart rectified to Cosmogenesis, the Age of Aquarius chart specifically, the Progressed chart YOD, that put him on the ropes for a pummeling, but didn’t knock him out. This is a high honor bestowed, the planet’s pre-eminent programmer and coder. Is their a better person given the drama we’ve seen?

          It might be that Xi gets his turn now? Maybe Jamie can post his chart?

          • Bill Gates’ Pluto-Jupiter midpoint, 28Leo04
            Age of Aqr, Progressed Moon for May 14, 2002, 27Leo36

          • For posterity, my natal (Jan 11/62, 6:27pm est) chart, progressed to May 14, 2020:

            Uranus, 27Leo35, rx
            Jupiter, 26Aqr44

          • “the planet’s pre-eminent programmer and coder.” Bill gates is a thief, scoundrel and creep. He should be tried and executed for crimes against humanity.

    • I’d be curious to have a look at Xi’s chart. I haven’t seen anywhere online that has his time of birth – do you have it?

  2. Hello Jamie and astrologyking followers! I am a Pisces ascendant at 19 degrees and this solar eclipse will conjunct saturn in my 4th house. Can someone please interpret? I have cancer at exactly 0 degree. Many thanks!

  3. Ah yes, the new moon of revenge spending … yeh apparently a lot of people have been going on spending sprees as their lockdowns lift.

  4. Nodal axis is anaretic, ie. 29th Degree

    “Your nodal axis defines your spiritual purpose”.

    “the significance of the nodes leads quickly into unquantifiable realms. Many astrologers accept a link with Karma, beginning with large scale events we have no control, ie. mass unemployment, war, famine, earthquakes.

    “With Anaretic north node, your spiritual development is clearly to be emphasized.”

    so with a Solar Eclipse at the Summer Solstice anaretic node, the Hyleg is afflicted. (Hyleg, a term used by ancient Arab astrologers for the Sun,Moon andAscendant.)

    Where is the Part of Fortune calculation at a NewMoon? On the Ascendant.

    And if you are looking for the Benefic, “Apheta”? this would be Jamie’s Mars sextile Juputer/Pluto aspect.

    • At the Solar Eclipse, the North Node 29Gem07 is sextile natal Uranus 29Leo57, forming a YOD (via transit) with Saturn at the Apex; Saturn both in Mundane and transit, ie. Second Saturn Return, age 58. And we have tilled the star ground in this part of the sky too, in previous posts, Betelguese and Regulus, respectfully.

      Uranus anaretic in Leo:

      “Here the rebels have been born. Strong will and determination are the labels of these souls. Compounded will that will brook no interference. Spirited and high minded, if Uranus well aspected. If afflicted, misuse of the will is going to cause difficulties, until the will is made sub serviant to the will of the higher self. Tremendous vitality and forcefulness. Similar to Uranus conj Sun. Leo rules gold and Uranus has disturbed the gold standard. Leo rules dictators and Uranus always upsets the status quo. Dictators came and went in 7 years. Dictators always do, for tyranny has the seeds of its own destruction within.”

      This is taken from an old notebook, I didn’t record the source.

      • Saturn Inconjunct Uranus

        “If either of these planets is near conjunct or opposition with the Ascendant or Midheaven, this aspect indicates a series tension in your life between Freedom and Restriction”

        Robert Hand, Planets in Youth, pg. 294

  5. Sounds like because of excessive pleasure seeking (Menkalinan) we get restricted again (eclips quincunx Saturn) and the virus explodes again (Jupiter-Pluto second conjunction). I hope I’m wrong.

    • Sounds like when that star under an armpit, decided to dim, and the world ran for the deodorant, there was enough dry powder in the musket to repel that nasty smell, until the best men of the cavalry showed up, but not until they took a whopping from the assorted Axe brand men.

      • If the cavalry were all sufferers of Mutiple Chemical Sensitivities, there would have been no one there for the Axe brand men to fight! The most gaggable mens’ grooming products ever! 😩😷😏 I’m leaning toward your feelings as well, Bob. My gut’s telling me this eclipse will be issuing in major family truths, with betrayals outed and lots of tears and, around the world, a truth bombshell dropped by Russia.

        • There should be some pleasant surprises in relationships with venus = eclipse/uranus. Those midpoints should not be forgotten. E.g. in Trumps horoscope he has a pluto=mars/saturn midpoint. No other aspect illustrates “you’re fired” better. But the overall picture of the eclips is “restrictions”, also the Saros cycle it belongs to is about restrictions. See “the eagle and the lark” of Bernadette Brady.

  6. Lot of news about parties everywhere leading to many infected people. Now the party in Napels after Napoli won against Juventus. Same happened before in Bergamo and Manchester.
    Another thing that looks bad is the heating up of Siberia. 30 degrees is quite extreme over there. North Pole is disappearing. Permafrost is disappearing. T.b.c.

  7. What off the eclipse is on your natal N.node? Wouldn’t this mean something is fated? Actually do the nodes need smaller orbs? This eclipse is at 0deg Cancer – my n.node is 5deg Cancer -is that still a conjunction?

    • Hi Lulu. A solar eclipse conjunct natal North Node helps you realize many truths that propel you forward on a new path. New karmic relationships form and these people will also help you find the right path for your soul at this time.

  8. Hi Jamie, this eclipse makes a trine to natal Mars (29.16° Libra) [which is also receiving a square from Saturn transit] and a square with natal Saturn (27.02°Virgo) [which is receiving an opposition from Mars transit] so if I add the quinqux aspect that you mentioned which one is the strongest ? In which area I can feel it? Thanks.

  9. Greetings, this eclipse is in exact alignment with my Ascendant at 29⁰24′ Gemini! I am not sure what to anticipate, any thoughts are appreciated! Thanks J.

  10. Me too! It conjuncts my Ascendant too. I wonder what this means..Most sites seem to suggest that its a bad omen

  11. Hi Phil and Elena. An eclipse conjunct natal Ascendant it generally very positive. It amplifies the influence of your Ascendant. So it also depends on how your Ascendant is aspect by other planets in your chart. See Sun conjunct Ascendant transit.
