The New Moon Solar eclipse June 2020 at 0º Cancer falls on famous red giant Betelgeuse. Anyone who watched hitch-hikers guide to the galaxy will be familiar with it. But this star is famous enough in real life since it is supposed to be going supernova as we speak. This is the second eclipse with a quite brutish star for its theme. Betelgeuse is a lot less shabby than Ras Algethi, but it is still pretty base!
This June Solar eclipse in Cancer decan 1 is extremely powerful and fortunate. Those touched by this new Moon will do well in any role where they play parent or carer at this time. Indeed the nurturing energy is so strong that it could feed an army. The Moon here will never exceed what it is willing to give. We learn very quickly that we are no good to anyone if we burn themselves out. This also means that there are none of the martyr syndrome resentment vibes that happens sometimes with hyper Cancerian energy.

“A man whose fingers and head are distorted and slanted, and his body is similar to a horse’s body; his feet are white, and he has fig leaves on his body. This is a face of instruction, love, subtlety and mastery” ~ Picatrix

Solar Eclipse June 2020 Aspects
Moon quincunx Saturn is the quintessential barmy headmistress or master. It commands respect because it carries a rock-solid air of authority and a stoic approach to life with a sense of humour. This unusual approach to problem-solving throws a curveball into situations which jolts people sideways. For example when Moon quincunx Saturn gives a beaming smile combined with a “you will obey” stare.
Erin Brockovich former shop-assistant and the beauty-pageant winner turned legal clerk has this aspect. Despite lacking a law school education she was instrumental in bringing litigation against Pacific Gas and Electric for contaminating water supplies. It is a great example of what the little people (Moon) can do against the big corporations (Saturn) when they put their minds to it.
I found Jupiter conjunct Pluto carried a strong ‘Cult-ish’ energy, especially death cults. Marshall Applewhite also had this aspect and was another American cult leader and founded the Heaven’s Gate religious group which ended in an organised mass suicide in 1997.
Bill Gates has this aspect too so go figure… His ‘wonderful’ foundation has done so much ‘go0d’ work in the world! (Ha$ it N0Te?). Vaccinating all those poor children in developing countries. $o very kind. Thank$ Dollar Bill.
Mars sextile Pluto gives us steel guts and the deep courage of a survivor. Mars-Pluto thrives on danger and trauma, so for those touched by this sextile adrenaline will run like petrol through their veins. This is a great aspect in an emergency, but can also prey a little too much on other peoples life-dramas. Media will be even more over-sensationalized than usual at this June solar eclipse.
Mars sextile Jupiter makes for a very optimistic and buoyant period. This is an energy that is focused on negotiating and campaigning in a very confident manner. It gives one enthusiasm and blows away the cobwebs of melancholy and depression. This is also a very lucky time and once get on a roll you will feel anything is possible. Jupiter allows you to be able to see the bigger picture, so you can also make very accurate predictions.
This Solar Eclipse is worst for...
Wearing fig-leaves, Facebook stalkers, any stalkers, big fat, sweaty, red-faced people, phallic batons, Bill Gates.
Betelgeuse 29º Gemini “Active mind, strong will, turbulent, rebellious under restraint, military success but suffering through quarrels with superiors, likelihood of great power, honor and wealth.” . With Moon, (As lunar mansion) here “a birth native will be insincere, proud, ungrateful, cruel, sinful, deceitful and wicked.” 
“The use of power to improve the quality of life of the common people. Concern for one’s immediate environment and domain. In extreme cases, members of one’s tribe are sacrificed to ensure the continued dominance of one’s genetic family. Survival of the fittest.” 
What Does A Betegeuse Eclipse Mean?
Betelgeuse is the famous bright red star in the shoulder of Orion. Technically this star still belongs in Gemini Decan 3, but it is close enough to this eclipse to make an impact. At a 0.5 magnitude, this star is giant, red and aggressive. But even if it seems rather brutish, Bernadette Brady still regards Betelgeuse as a very fortunate in her commentaries, saying it generally gives worldly power, great strength and success.
Throughout history Betelgeuse eclipses have tended to be on the explosive side as I found from my research. There were rumours that his death was imminent and he had indeed gone super nova. However in February 2020 it was noted that; “Betelgeuse has definitely stopped dimming and has started to slowly brighten.. Observations of all kinds continue to be needed to understand the nature of this unprecedented dimming episode and what this surprising star will do next.” ~ National Geographic
Legend has it that the virgin goddess of the hunt grew annoyed at Orion’s constant boasting (That he could hunt down and dominate any animal on earth) so decided to bring him down a peg or two. She sent a scorpion to sting his foot, which made him blind.
For the Egyptians, Orion was Osiris, the greatest god of them all. The Greeks, however, rather down-graded him to the arrogant stalker of his huntress counterpart Artemis. Betelgeuse is quite volatile but shows Orion can resurrect itself after a fall. Betelgeuse is found in the striking arm of the hunter, where he holds a huge phallic club and you wouldn’t want to argue with that!
Solar Eclipse June 2020 ~ Summary
The June solar eclipse 2020’s nurturing and protective energy is just perfect for coming out of self-isolation and re-connecting with family. But watch out for the scapegoating of Betelgeuse as Brady has said that “In extreme cases, members of one’s tribe are sacrificed to ensure the continued dominance of one’s genetic family.” 
If you have narcissistic family members they may be craving your loosh energy that they have missed for so long. Any grandiose super-narcissistic behaviour could have Gaia unleash her Scorpio sting and the offending relative may well be sent limping home as the universe dishes out its divine punishment.
Generally, this is still a very cosy solar eclipse, despite its spicy sting and best enjoyed in the bosom of your kin. However, if your biological family happen to be nothing but a bunch of narcissists then don’t waste your time making a purse out of a sow’s ear, seek out your spiritual family instead.
The Mars sextile Jupiter/Pluto is extremely courageous and capable of standing up to the bully. So in the collective, we should see some kick-back against authoritarianism. Protesting against the restriction of liberties as a result of this Solar Eclipse will last for the next 6 months.

Red Jasper is passionate and yearns to consummate love. It gives one gentle determination to set boundaries against bullying and violence in the home. This stone gives formidable protection against psychic attack. It is especially useful will working with mentally unstable people.
