Here we are, December 2020, can you believe it? At times this year has felt unending, or like it startedgoing backwards, or somehow got stuck in a twisted loop of trauma, dead ends and forced transformation. But somehow, by some divine grace, we’ve arrived at its culmination, ending it with some losses, some insight, lots of closure, and some massive celestial conversations.
This total Solar Eclipses has an overall expansive message which is asking us to look with optimism, joy, wisdom, knowledge and hope into a brighter future as it closes out the past and sends us merrily into a new paradigm.
It’s not an all fun and games eclipse though because, you know, change is uncomfortable and it’s been an exhausting and emotionally devastating year for a lot of us. But if we can tune into that wise energy of the Sagittarius constellation we can step out of our duality, the back and forth of mind, the limiting beliefs and the stress caused by all these rapid shifts and changes, and step into a new faith and belief system.
The Sun, Moon, Mercury and South Node are all conjunct in Sagittarius putting a lot of focus on the archetype and how we experience it in ourselves. Beyond the already mentioned traits Sagittarius is also very much about truth, law, justice, quests, foreigners, and long-term vision so there is a lot of energy focused on big thinking and envisioning ideal futures for our human family, futures that are not limited by boarders, inequality, and injustice. But rather built on higher moral ground, ethical laws and regulations, and justice for all.
In the personal sphere we are called to release our own biases, dogma and life philosophies, and do it in a big way because Sagittarius is big transformation. This process is not necessarily going to be a conscious one, it can be. But ultimately eclipse season is about closing doors to open new ones, ones we may not even be aware of.
So if we go into a place of listening when we get to our intention setting, unimaginable opportunities and insights may come up. Bigger than what the mind can imagine. It’s a potent new moon that will plant new seeds in the darkness of our unconscious minds, but Eclipses are very much about closing out cycles.
What was going on between 2001-2002 in your life? Those cycles, growth and lessons are coming to a close at this time. What was happening for you 6 months ago? This will be another cycle of growth and understanding that will close out. Again, things aren’t necessarily closing out on a conscious level, the shifts that take place could start becoming clearer over the next month or so, so don’t put pressure on yourself to have all the answers.
Although Sagittarius has wonderful gifts to share like connecting us to divine truth, wisdom, joy and expansion, it also has a shadow side, as all things do. And with the South Node of the Moon conjunction at this Eclipse, we have to be mindful of the karma and negative aspects of this sign that might come up for clearing so that we can let the clearing process occur.
The shadow side of Sag is the religious crusader, the zealot fighting evil, living in the duality of good and bad, having blind faith in their understanding of god and a fervent belief that their gods/belief/life philosophy/spiritual path etc is the only way, and it needs to prevail over the beliefs of others.
Can we step beyond our duality, the ideas that are black and white, right and wrong? Can we step into oneness and the divine wisdom and knowledge that lays beyond the fight for good over evil? Ultimate truth is unity and love.
Mars is forming a positive aspect to the Sun, Moon and Mercury, in fellow fire sign Aries, so the element of divine fire and desire to move fast with passion and drive into new experiences are strong. Gut instincts are strong, the need for independence and exploration are strong. And the instinct is to bring down that joy, optimism and divine knowledge and wisdom to mind, heart, and purpose. Mind the impatience and sharp tongue that Mars can inspire at this time.
Venus, the planet of love and relationship is in Scorpio seeking deep truth and transformation at this time. She is trining Chiron in Aries, the wounded healer, so we can expect fast shifts in healing of love, money, relationships, and the divine feminine.
Three tougher aspects at this eclipse are that Neptune is squaring the Sun, Moon, Mercury and South node,. Saturn is in its last degree of Capricorn squaring Mars, And Uranus is semi squaring Sun, Moon and Mercury.
Neptune is leading up to an exact square with the North and South Nodes of the Moon in January that has a lot to do with confusion, illusion, conspiracy cloudiness, and spiritual fog we are in right now. But this square at the eclipse is also creating a sense of listlessness or feeling like life is pointless at this time. That’s ok, its part of the purge, being self-aware of when you feel like life is pointless, what triggers that thought pattern, and how you can sooth the pain can help take the edge off. Neptune is ultimately about surrender, trust, unconditional love and ultimate unity with all that is true.
Saturn in its anorectic degree can create some havoc as it gets ready to leap into Aquarius, and with Mars squaring it again we are back at the theme of power, authority, patriarchy, government versus the individual freedoms and rights. There may be a sense of restriction or burden of responsibility that comes up at this time that makes us cringe and want to fight back.
Uranus squaring the Sun, Moon and Mercury could bring shocking news to the surface. The uncomfortable kind that leads to our ultimate enlightenment and freedom, yet still uncomfortable and hard to swallow. But if we tune into the Aquarian energy of detachment and observe the experience as a scientist we can come up with an innovative or quirky solution to whatever news may come our way.
All in all, we are shifting into a new type of energy come Solstice, and as we gear up energetically, and subconsciously in preparation for the work we will do with the element of Air and Aquarius over the next 140 years, we have a great start to plant new seeds of change that is rooted in wisdom, knowledge, expansion and joy. Seeds that shape our beliefs into new philosophies that are oriented toward creating a life and world that is ideal for all.
So much love and grace to you all as we navigate this season of change and transformation.
Stay connected, send me your thoughts, love, and I’ll return them right back in song
So Much Love,
