Wow what a week. Several celebrities got married; Carrie Underwood (Pisces) and Mike Fisher (Gemini), plus Emily Blunt (Pisces) and John Krasinski (Libra). Other couples went on a romantic holiday with their new sweethearts; Jessica Simpson (Cancer) and Eric Johnson (Virgo), plus Ryan Seacrest (Capricorn) and Julianne Hough (Cancer). We even had a sad Bachelorette break up with Jillian Harris (Capricorn) and her man Ed Swiderski (Cancer).  Plus Lindsay Lohan (Cancer) is going to jail. What the heck is going on?

We had to find out what was happening in the cosmos, so we asked our resident astrologer, Patty Kamson, to give us the cosmic lowdown. Here’s what she said.

Today, July 11th is a Solar Eclipse in the sign of Cancer. New Moons signify new beginnings, rebirths, planting seeds of intention and new cycles. Cancer energy is intuitive, sensitive and protective. Cancer also rules the 4th house which is about family, home, foundation and the place in the chart that represents your soul coming into this incarnation. It’s a very sensitive and powerful area of the chart. (love is definitely in the air.)

An eclipse is an opportunity that shines a spotlight on areas in life that require attention. Most times we are not consciously aware so when the spotlight hits it can be so bright we are shocked and surprised. We then adjust to the light and are able to get our bearings and make the changes necessary to expand and take life to the next level. The key is not to get caught up in any negativity during this time. Look at what is being presented to you and make the decisions necessary to keep moving on your path.

Eclipses can have affects for up to a year, so make sure you are consciously aware of the actions you are taking at this time. It is not a time to be on automatic pilot! Everyone will have affects from this Solar Eclipse but the signs that will feel the energy the strongest will be Cancers, Capricorns, Aries and Libras.  Take some quiet time on the day of the Eclipse to pray or meditate on what you want to bring into fruition in the coming months.  Then let it go and allow yourself and the Universe to make it so!

Astrochicks predicts wedding bells for Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough plus Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson. The next year should be interesting in the world of celebrity hook ups and break ups. Stay tuned.
