Solar Eclipse July 2019 ~ Fixed Star Alhena

Solar Eclipse In Pollux. Manilus says; “From the Twins come less laborious callings and a more agreeable way of life, provided by varied song and voices of harmonious tone, slender pipes, the melodies inborn in strings and the words fitted thereto:

those so endowed find even work a pleasure. They would banish the arms of war, the trumpet’s call, and the gloom of old age: theirs is a life of ease and unfading youth spent in the arms of love.”

So this star can be vengeful and destructive given half a chance. Though it seems that some sweet music and a loving embrace can work wonders. Again it seems that at this sensitive Solar Eclipse we will need to be treated kindly, wrapped in cotton wool, and no sharp knives!

Alhena falls in the left foot of Pollux, the immortal (Or bad!) twin. This star technically belongs to Cancer decan 1 but we are on the cusp here so this star falls in orb to this Solar eclipse.

Alhena means a brand or ‘mark burnt in’, Bullinger says this means ‘hurt, wounded or afflicted.’ Similar to Propus it conveys the same meaning as the Achilles heel. Even though these crabs are so talented and skilled at getting what they want in life, they do have that soft centre and makes them surprisingly vulnerable.

There can also be a tendency to self-sabotage. Robson says Alhena ” bestows imminence in art, but gives liability to accidents affecting the feet.” There is also “skill with writing and speech and the ability to settle disputes peacefully.

The mix of the twins sharp minds and writing skills in sensitive, imaginative Cancer combine poetically to make great art. Eric Morse observes that when any of the Gemini stars precessed into Tropical Cancer (Alhena in 1349, Tejat Posterior in 1621 and Propus in 1755) that there was a significant flourishing of European philosophy and literature.” [1]

The 2nd Face Of Cancer

“A woman with a beautiful face, and her head she has a crown of green myrtle, and her hand is the stem of a plant called waterlily, and she is singing songs of love and joy. This is a face of games, wealth and abundance” ~ Picatrix

Solar Eclipse July 2019 ~ Aspects

Sun trine Neptune can be a wonderfully glamorous, charismatic, musical, poetic and highly imaginative combination… that comes with a price! Surprisingly in my research I found that it appears this aspect can also be tinged with tragedy.

The trine goes so easily with the flow that with Neptune it can make ones ego become too easily porous and suggestible. The willpower of the masses are easily swayed by smoke and mirrors at this solar eclipse. It could make it hard for those touched by this eclipse to resist drugs, alcohol and temptations of escapism.

Moon trine Neptune could make us extremely devoted to our lovers at this time, but we need to be careful our longing to merge doesn’t leave us with no sense of self whatsoever. We will do best when we put this great devotion into an all-consuming passion, Ie; An artistic project, spiritual practice or best of all, working to transform the lives of the sick and needy.

Moon trine Neptune takes the fantasy element of Neptune and tries to build a utopia. There is a budding saviour quality about it and it is in tune with the common peoples hope and dreams. The nurturing side of the moon in this solar eclipse July can take on a transpersonal role in mothering the world.

The joy of brightest star Sirius shines through here. The card is associated with multiple marriages or many children. It could also signify a period spent socialising and organising parties.
