I find it quite remarkable how the Eclipse seasons this year (2019/2020) echo the eclipses of 2000/2001. The planetary dance is different but the actual Eclipse degrees are almost exact. Most of us remember the events of 11 Sept 2001. In August of 2001 I had written in a post “expect Sept 11 to 30 to be a crazy-making time”. And it was. An echo repeats the vibration. With the current events of the last week are we headed for another catastrophic event? Perhaps! But we can change the outcome by focusing on raising the collective consciousness from fear and separation (the shadow of Capricorn) to Unity and Unconditional Love (the healing energy of Cancer).
Let us start with the Cancer Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. The Moon is travelling with the astrological Earth at 20 degrees Cancer. She is in her home sign and focuses on our roots, origins, ancestors, family, and healing. She is the Universal Mother. Her Clan Mother guide is Loves All Things, who is the Mother of unconditional love. She teaches us how to forgive ourselves and others, the first step to acceptance and unity. In the Northern Hemisphere the Animal Totem guide is Flicker Woodpecker who leads us through transitions with All Healing Love. The Moon in Cancer feels EVERTHING so expect emotions to be more intense. Stay connected to your Sacred Center and let your Soul’s Wisdom guide you through whatever is unfolding.
A Full Moon Eclipse is a completion energy. The theme of this Cancer/Capricorn Lunation is to overcome a difficult situation, endings, and completion. Capricorn is associated with society and issues of power and control. On a spiritual level it is the sign of our Soul Purpose Path. We have a stellium of planets closely clustered in Capricorn. The Sun and Mercury at 20 degrees Capricorn (focus on the right use of will and power) Ceres at 21 degrees Capricorn (Universal Mother and unconditional love and acceptance) and Saturn/Pluto at 22 degrees Capricorn (transformation of society). The actual conjunction of the latter occurs at 11.59 am EST on Jan 12 but we are already feeling the power. And Jupiter at 08 degrees Capricorn (new growth and expansion of our spiritual vision) has just crossed over the South Node (releasing limitations of the past). Saturn (personal responsibility and empowerment or restriction and limitation) is the planetary guide for all this Capricorn energy.
The Clan Mother who guides the Capricorn cluster is Talks With Relations. She is the maker of relatives, keeper of the Earth’s needs, and Mother of the planetary family. She reminds us to learn the truth and live it. (The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams). Our Animal Totem guide is Snow Goose, loyalty and commitment to following our dreams and visions. Snow Goose is also the guide for the Saturn/Pluto meeting as is Talks With Relations. (The Animal Totems are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere but available to us all. The Clan Mothers are the same for both Hemispheres).
The Eclipse chart and the chart for the Saturn/Pluto conjunction contain a Cardinal Grand Cross (breaking out of whatever box you are in) and Mercury is out of bounds (thinking outside the box). The asteroid Juno is at 19 degrees Libra (committed relationship and justice for all) and is opposite (conflict) the dwarf planet Eris (chaos or purposeful action) at 23 degrees Aries (selfishness or inspired new beginnings). They are both square (motivation for change and finding new ways of doing things) the Eclipse planets. There is an easy doorway out of the Grand Cross. Eris is trine (removal of obstacles) Pallas Athene at 26 degrees Sagittarius (spiritual consciousness and the cosmic wisdom of the Galactic Center) and she is sextile (universal opportunity) Venus at 26 degrees Aquarius (humanitarian love). Pallas is also sextile Venus. It is a beautiful gift at this most uncertain time. Also Mars at 04 degrees Sagittarius (spiritual action) is trine (ease and flow) Chiron at 01 degrees Aries (healing solutions).
I am not even going to try to interpret the Saturn/Pluto conjunction. But their meeting begins a new 34 year cycle. Saturn is strengthening your foundation and Pluto is releasing what no longer serves you, experiencing transformation, which leads to rebirth. So far it seems we have to go through crisis and chaos but that too leads to transformation. On Eclipse day Uranus moves in direct motion at 8.49 pm EST. He is at 02 degrees Taurus and asks us to break free from what is no longer of value and breakthrough to the new. A blessing. Uranus is the doorway to a new consciousness.
On Tuesday night this week as I went to sleep the Gibbous Moon (mind, body, spirit healing) had a beautiful rainbow halo around her. The Rainbow Bridge of Healing into Wholeness.
