THE SOLAR ECLIPSE OF DECEMBER 25/26,2019
There is a total solar eclipse on December 25/26. This is the last eclipse of the year and of this decade.
I have heard some fearful end-of-the-world talk about this eclipse but I believe it is a very positive one bringing gifts from Jupiter and is especially good for the Cardinal signs - Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra. It is a major event with a stellium (line up) of planets - Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, the South Node, and the two Lights, all in the Sign of Capricorn.
THIS SOLAR ECLIPSE IS A GIFT!
There is something we should remember during this solar eclipse. One is that because gifts may be given to you at Christmas, and because they look shiny and pretty on the outside, it doesn't always mean you will like them. Some will be good and some not. However, you know you will open them anyway and whether you like them or not, there is always joy in receiving and in opening gifts. I want to say the same about this solar eclipse. Gifts may come your way in the form of opportunities for growth but when you really look at them, you may not like them because it means you will have to make a change. The planets are urging us to be courageous, so let's accept the gifts they bring!
SERIES OF ECLIPSES ON CAPRICORN/CANCER AXIS
There have been a series of eclipses on this axis of Capricorn and Cancer and the first one in this series was July 13, 2018, through 2019 and this series ends in the summer of 2020. These eclipses have coincided with the approach of Saturn towards Pluto which I discuss in my Blog and will go into more detail in my upcoming lecture (details below).
You might think back to what was happening to you around July 13, 2018. I think you may see that the way you approached life before that date, and the way you do now is different. In other words, you have grown during this time, however, painful this last 18 months may have been for you.
However, the growth won't end there. This series of eclipses continues until Summer of 2020. So let's all stay frosty, honest and true, and be open to change when it arrives.
THE SATURN/PLUTO CONJUNCTION - JANUARY 12, 2020
This conjunction of Saturn and Pluto becomes exact on January 12, 2020. This will have brought many shifts and opportunities to the Cardinal signs especially as mentioned above. Especially the sign of Capricorn and its opposite sign of Cancer are in the spotlight. However, eclipses affect all of us, depending upon where they fall in our natal chart.
LOOK AT WHAT IS LIT UP!
Be objective and honest about yourself right now. This planetary line up is calling for greater awareness. Pay attention over Christmas and look at what is lit up in your life rather than staring at the shadows.
TIME TO BE PRACTICAL
This eclipse is calling us to be practical rather than overly idealistic - especially about family members and those close friends or groups to which we belong which are also like a family to us. This may be our work colleagues or Church members or close friends, or all of these to some extent. OK, they may not be as perfect as you are but just have fun with them anyway:) Go for the light, the planets are saying, don't dwell on the darkness.
This eclipse happens just four days after the Winter solstice so still lined with that and describes the unfolding of events over the next three months. It is a good time to formulate goals that will benefit the group of which you are a part, rather than purely personal goals.
The Jupiterean influence here is urging us to be kind, forgiving with a heart full of goodwill - a wonderful Christmas message!
