Tip of the Week:
A powerful Total Solar Eclipse occurs on December 4 at 12 Sagittarius 22. The chart pattern is a bowl which implies many events and experiences. Mars at 23 Scorpio 40 is the lead planet which promises passion, action, drama and heroism, and probably aggression and violence too, especially due to a close square to Jupiter in revolutionary Aquarius. This theme of aggression is amplified by the fact that the eclipse is conjunct the fixed star Rastaban which the ancient’s referred to as the ‘eye of the dragon’ Draco’, known to manifest as loss of property, violence, criminal inclinations and accidents when strongly activated, like it is now.
A socially opportune aspect to Saturn in Aquarius is disrupted by an awkward aspect to Uranus in Taurus indicates further challenges in the economies of the world. Venus trailing Pluto by conjunction in Capricorn suggests lowered confidence levels stemming from governmental and higher management levels. Fortunately, Jupiter is linked to justice-oriented Libra and truth aspiring Sagittarius, yet any such victories will likely be hard won.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
The Sagittarius eclipse will activate your higher mind. A visionary fervor linked to truth and justice will be amplified in your heart and mind. Of course, these principles are interpretative at a personal, subjective level. An overall passionate, zealous and ambition-driven orientation will likely lead you into new territory.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
This powerful eclipse occurs in your solar Scorpio sector suggestive of deep changes. These changes will likely include financial realities linked to insurance, inheritances and investments in general. Letting go of things once valued may not be easy but doing so could liberate you to pursue new dreams and ambitions.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Some major changes on relationship fronts are destined to occur due to the Solar Eclipse. These may also take place in other areas of your life depending on your actual Birth Chart. These will have the effect of stirring you to assume or even assert a philosophical attitude. When it comes to destiny, often the best response is faithful acceptance.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
Health interests and perhaps concerns will be activated by this eclipse. These are extensions, expressions or consequences of your lifestyle. It may be a matter of the quality of these or lack thereof or it may simply point to a theme of destiny the time of which has arrived. Either way, the time has come to make new choices.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
Since this is a fire element eclipse it stands to manifest positively for you or at least as some measure of inspiration. There are always other factors to consider and it could just as easily manifest as putting a fire under you to get you going beyond excuses. These are likely to support your creative prowess.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
Likely shifts and changes triggered by this eclipse will center on your home, daily rhythm and relationships. Positively, it will have an energizing effect. You may be dealing with uncertainties these days regarding the future. Given the global crisis, this is practically a given. Financial realities are featured yet require new knowledge or approaches.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Many new thoughts, perceptions and interpretations will be ignited by this eclipse. Some of these could have a rattling effect close to home. On the most basic level a deep clean of your home may occur, a veritable purge akin to spring cleaning. Yet, this could extend into renovations or even the need or desire to bust a move altogether.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Securing your foundation going forward is a central theme now. This includes a process of aligning with your strengths and confidences, in one hand, and acknowledging and facing your fears to lay claim to hidden gifts, talents and/or reserves, on the other. Somehow the overcoming part requires you to pay the entrance fee.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
The Solar Eclipse in your sign is destined to activate new modes of expression. These can be as subtle as a shift of attitude and approach or an entirely fresh start altogether. Themes of commitment are featured. The challenge is to overcome a lack of clear focus and getting lost in tangents. Be open to the possibilities then set your sights.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Balancing inner retreat with powerful outer expression continues. The eclipse stands to have a powerful awakening impact on you. As though you have been in the dark somehow and all the lights in the house were turned on at once. Positively, this will inspire new strategies. Either way, you need to clearly determine your direction.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
A philosophical mood backed by heightened interests in themes of truth, justice and democracy will be activated by the eclipse. It may simply take you to the next level of existing realizations. Dealing with an urge to expand yet a simultaneous sense of delay and/or restriction is in the plot. Exercise patience and find reason to be optimistic.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
Your career and public life will receive a boost from this eclipse. Various changes are also likely which could manifest as a noticeable change of attitude, approach and status. Digging deeper to draw upon reserves of faith will be activated yet must contend with sobering realities as well. Follow through and completion will fare better than new projects or ventures.
