Solar Eclipse Meaning
A solar eclipse is just like a regular new moon where the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun. However, a solar eclipse is more powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun. Solar Eclipse July 2019 is a total solar eclipse so none of the Sun will be visible. The new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new cycle. A new moon influence lasts for four weeks but a solar eclipse lasts about six months.
The strongest and most important aspect of astrology is Sun conjunct Moon. It means all possibilities are on the table and you can rightly put yourself at the forefront of new plans for the future. It is time to question your old habits and behaviors as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.
This is the ideal time to make a fresh start, so write your new goals on paper. The Solar Eclipse July 2019 astrology will compliment themes found in the July 16 Lunar Eclipse. Together, they make up an eclipse phase which lasts until the solar eclipse on December 26, 2019.
Total Solar Eclipse July 2019 Astrology
At 10°37′ Cancer Sign, the total solar eclipse on 2 July 2019 makes only one planetary aspect. The solar eclipse sextile Uranus is a positive influence but only mild in effect because of the wide orb of influence of over four degrees. There are other planetary aspects in the chart below that will have some influence on the solar eclipse. There is also a fixed star conjunction to consider but it is also a weak conjunction for a fixed star at over one degree. Altogether these influences combine to make this a fortunate solar eclipse.
Solar Eclipse Star
At 09°22′ Cancer Sign is fixed star Alhena. This brilliant white star is located on the left foot of the Southern Twin Pollux in Gemini Constellation. So although the solar eclipse is in the Sign of Cancer, the astrological influence comes from the stars in the Constellation of Gemini. Due to the process of Precession of the Equinoxes, the Sun Signs are almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named.
Fixed star Alhena bestows eminence in art but gives liability to accidents affecting the feet according to Robson.  Ebertin said is also confers a spiritual orientation and interest in the sciences.  Morse says the artistic skills apply especially with the written or spoken word. So it gives the ability to negotiate a peaceful solution to disputes and brings distinction for your efforts. The Sun and Moon conjunct Alhena gives good health, honor, riches, pride, luxury, pleasure and domestic benefits. There may be martial honors but the danger of losing them. 
Solar Eclipse Aspects
Solar Eclipse sextile Uranus brings pleasant surprises and stimulating encounters. This is a good solar eclipse to try something new and exciting and you should have enough freedom to do so. Increased self-awareness can come through flashes of insight or through feedback from personal interactions. Creativity is stimulated and you should feel comfortable expressing the more flamboyant, or kinky side of your personality.
Socializing, group activities and chance encounters should be more frequent and enlightening. You are more likely to meet unorthodox types or people from different cultural or ethnic backgrounds than your own. It may be difficult to stick to routine because of a tendency to be easily distracted. However, it is this tendency to skip from one thing to another that leads to the extra insight and discoveries.
Saturn sextile Neptune is the strongest aspect in the solar eclipse chart beside the Sun conjunct Moon. It is also the major planetary aspect of 2019 and brings material gain from spiritual pursuits. This aspect helps you make your dreams come true with hard work and a sensible, realistic approach. You will understand your own limitations but will be optimistic at the same time. You will be patience and self-disciplined without denying yourself or making sacrifices.
The July 2019 solar eclipse is refreshingly positive. It joins a star in Gemini Constellation called Alhena that brings good health, honor, and riches. This is an excellent eclipse for enjoying good times with friends and especially your family. This star is good for artists and scientists. The spiritual nature of this star brings people together so it is a good omen for ending conflict through peace negotiations.
A gentle but positive influence from Uranus adds to the creative and scientific influence of Alhena. Exciting breakthroughs and new developments will foster technological innovation and greater personal freedom. The long-term influence of Saturn sextile Neptune increases the likelihood of permanent settlements to international and personal disputes. Solar eclipse July 2019 can make your dreams come true through patience, open-mindedness, and hard work.
