The Cancer Total Solar Eclipse on July 2nd is going to bring a wave of opportunity our way. These opportunities will be helping us to change up our routine and bring more inspiration and motivation into our lives.
We may also feel guided to think about our home and family situation and to bring more balance or boundaries when it comes to who we choose to give our time to.
Of course, everyone is going to feel the effects of the Eclipse differently, but for clues, you may want to look back to what was happening in January 2019, as events from that time are linked to what is unfolding now.
To help you navigate through the energies, to help you open to the opportunities, and to invite the nurturing and intuitive energy of Cancer into your life, here is a ritual to guide you-
Cancer Solar Eclipse Ritual July 2019
This ritual is best done from June 29-July 13th, 2019
You will need:
- Cleansing tool of choice (Eg. smudge sticks, incense, oils etc.)
- Guided Cosmic Meditation for July
- Pen and paper
- 1 white candle
- Crystal of choice (I really like amethyst for this but you can choose whatever you feel drawn to)
1.) Have all your ritual ingredients out in front of you. Light your candle and sit before it, gently gazing on the flame. Take 5 deep breaths in and out just to calm yourself and settle your mind.
2.) On your next 5 breaths, recite the following mantras. The best way to do it is to read the mantra aloud and then take a deep breath in and out. If you like you can also place your right hand over your heart as you do this.
- I prepare myself for the work of this ritual. (breathe in and out)
- I am calm and centered in my body, mind, and soul. (breathe in and out)
- I am ready to open myself to the current energies and the Eclipse knowing I will always be protected. (breathe in and out)
- I am ready to make the changes I need to so I can live a life more aligned with my purpose. (breathe in and out)
- I am peace, I am calm, I am love. (breathe in and out)
3.) Now, meditate to begin opening your energy using the Cosmic Guided Meditation for July, alternatively, you can also meditate on your own for 10 minutes.
4.) Once the meditation is complete, take your pen and paper and at the top of the page, write down – “10 things I wish for my life right now”. Begin making your list, thinking of the 10 things you would want in your life right now. You can be as detailed as you like.
5.) Look back over your list once done and just observe any thoughts or feelings that have come up for you. Is there a theme running through what you have wished for? Are there actions you can take today to help your wishes come true?
6.) Once done, take your piece of paper and fold it up. Holding it in both hands, recite the following or feel free to recite whatever you feel in the moment-
“Dear Universe, receive my wishes and help me to make them come true. Guide me to the best and most appropriate actions so I may receive the wishes that are in my best and highest interest. Mold my wishes so they bring me to my soul path. Allow them to bring only joy, prosperity, and happiness to all. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
Take your folded paper and place it under your crystal if using.
7.) Now, take your cleansing tool of choice and while you are going to cleanse, you are also going to seal in the work you have done and activate your energy for the days to come.
8.) Take your cleansing tool and starting at the top of your head, begin working down your body.
As you cleanse the top of your body, recite the following-
“I seal in the good thoughts. I seal in the peace and calm that floods me now.”
As you cleanse the midsection of your body, recite the following-
“I seal in the love and creativity that is around me now. I activate my feelings of purpose.”
As you cleanse the lower part of your body and feet, recite the following-
“I am cleansed, all dense energy has now left my body. I am aligned. I am restored. I am energized.”
Now cleanse your surroundings as well. This time, don’t recite any affirmations or mantras, instead, just focus on allowing the cleansing tool to do its job. Feel into the energy and just allow yourself to be part of the process.
9.) To close out the Solar Eclipse Ritual, snuff out your candle and place your paper and crystal by your bedside or on your altar for the next 3 days. After 3 days, you can look over your wishes again or put them away for reflection at a later time.
Happy Solar Eclipse!
