As I write this article, Mercury squares Neptune in the sky. Mercury is the planet of communication, and it is currently in its detriment in Sagittarius. Mercury forms a challenging aspect to the planet of dreams, imagination, delusion, confusion, and deceit. Take your pick and choose wisely because we are also wrapping up The Era of Capricorn in this next week, as we ascend to the Real Age of Aquarius! Dream, manifest, meditate, cry, cleanse, release, heal, and pray for miracles.
The Total Solar Eclipse occurs on December 14, 2020 at 11:17 am EST at 23 degrees and 8 minutes of the mutable Fire sign of Sagittarius. The South Node of Fate is conjunct this New Moon Eclipse within four degrees, which therefore makes it a Total Solar Eclipse and extra powerful and fated in its very potent energy!
This is an excellent new moon for focusing on new beginnings and reflecting on what you want to have in 2021! It is the Law of Abundance New Moon Eclipse, but you have to release limiting beliefs of thinking you cannot magnetize good fortune in a time of darkness. There is a lot of scientific and technological advancement which will enable us to have new opportunities in every area and to help create new jobs as we pivot and rebuild.
A New Moon is always a time of initiating new beginnings, and this is true of this highly powerful Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius. Make sure to focus in the next few days on what you want to attract and magnetize in your life. What is your new vision as we begin what is known as a Great cycle on December 21, 2020 when Saturn and Jupiter both meet up and conjoin at 0 degrees and 29 minutes of Aquarius.
Saturn and Jupiter are conjunct every twenty years, and this begins a new age. This ushers in a whole new change for us on the collective, and this Total Solar Eclipse is teaching us how to tap into hope, optimism, and learning in a time of despair. This new moon Eclipse is ruled by Jupiter, the Grand Benefic.
Jupiter, the planet of higher wisdom, expansion, manifesting, optimism, and benevolence is currently at 28 degrees of the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn and is almost complete in its transit in the sign of Capricorn, where it is in its fall position.
In this past year, we have all experienced mass loss of life, old dreams, old structures in our lives, and a year of feeling on hold. Saturn restricts, and we all had to hustle and persevere in a year of lockdown. It is as if the whole world has had a massive Saturn transit regarding loss of old paradigms and structures in our lives; not to mention a Pluto transit that has been experienced worldwide and involves much death, loss, rebirth, and change of old ways.
This planetary alignment had not occurred for over five hundred years in the very karmic, limiting, and challenging sign of Capricorn. Bear in mind that if you have been working from a place of integrity and committing to significant areas of your life during this highly karmic time in the world, you will persevere and get karmic rewards as we morph to the Real Age of Aquarius, which involves brilliance, interconnection, and community.
However, with the South Node so closely involved and only within a few degrees of Mercury, the planet of communication, there will be more endings and departures. Neptune, the planet of intuition, forms an exact square to the Nodes of the moon. This can bring very spiritual, romantic, and creative connections and opportunities. Neptune is the planet of dreams, so keep a journal close to your bed and write down your dreams.
Neptune also squares the Moon in Sagittarius approximately eight hours before the Total Solar Eclipse, and dreams will be very powerful! Neptune squares the Eclipse, and we saw more things dissolve before we transition. We also have a lot of magic available in this Solar Eclipse, and Neptune helps us to believe it’s true!
This is a time to pay attention to messages, feel like you have what you are trying to manifest, visualize, clear the energy of your space with crystals, sage, palo santo, incense, or however you want to clear the energy. I like to burn palo santo and the open the windows, closets, and all of the doors when I am clearing old energy. Meditate with this highly creative burst of magic in the air, as we all deal with massive sorrow in our hearts for all that have been victims of this tragic time.
Jupiter, which is the ruler of this Total Solar Eclipse is conjunct Saturn at the last degrees of Capricorn, in which they are both completing a cycle. This does not detract from the manifesting ability of this Solar Eclipse. However, it is vital to recognize that we are in a very pivotal time with concluding the Capricorn story of collapsing of old structures, loss, restructuring, and rebirth.
Saturn is at an anaretic degree meaning that it is at the final degree of Capricorn, which is the sign it rules in modem Astrology. Saturn has been transiting on and off in the Cardinal earth sign of Capricorn since December 20, 2017. It briefly entered the fixed air sign of Aquarius on March 23, 2020 where it transiting until July 1, 2020 when it re-entered Capricorn.
In ancient Astrology, Saturn is the ruler of the fixed air sign of Aquarius, but it is not as heavy and karmic in its expression. Saturn will exit Capricorn on December 17, 2020 at 12:04 AM EST or on December 16, 2020 at 9:04 pm PST. If you are another time zone, please adjust.
This is a major planetary ingress and the beginning of an entirely new chapter! Saturn will transit in Aquarius on and off until March 7, 2023. The last time Saturn transited in Aquarius was on and off from February 6, 1991 until January 28, 1994. The fixed air sign of Aquarius has two rulers: Uranus, the planet of upheaval, chaos, and revolt, is the ruler in modern astrology; Saturn, the planet of planet of structures, authority figures, and lessons, in ancient astrology. Therefore, Saturn will be in its dignity but not as harsh as when it transited in dark, cold Capricorn. We need Saturn to implement our strategies and anchor our goals as we heal a world that feels destroyed.
