Here are the cards I pulled for tonight's New Moon eclipse in Cancer.
The Ace of Pentacles (Earth) is appropriate for the energy of beginnings, since all Aces are about something brand new. The element of Earth tells us this eclipse's potentials are the real deal. It may not be flashy or exciting, but you can count on what's starting.
The Magician (Mercury-Air) says you have the power to make this happen. However, Air and Earth are not compatible elements, so there may be some tension between what you want to say/write (Mercury is your bold new idea) versus the more practical elements of what you're dealing with. The Magician can be full of great ideas but grounding them in reality could be an issue.
The Queen of Cups (Water) has a neutral relationship with the Magician (Water and Air get along ok). But note the contrast between her passive/Yin energy (she holds back and keeps secrets) versus his masculine/Yang energy. She clearly expresses this eclipse's Cancer vibe, and next to the Magician, there's a suggestion that intellect must be combined with intuition. Perhaps her influence is needed to bring the Magician's energy down a notch so his big idea can work in reality. Water (the Queen) and Earth (the Ace) are very compatible and fertile.
Alternatively, the Magician can refer to a charming, persuasive character who talks a good game, but his/her words must be viewed with caution. Can this person follow up on what they're saying? What does your gut tell you?
As this eclipse kicks off a new chapter, consider what you know and what you feel.
