Although this Total Eclipse of the Moon covering the Sun is only visible in the southern part of South America and Antarctica it is a significant spiritual gift for us all. A Solar Eclipse influences the following six months. This one takes us to the 10 June 2021 New Moon eclipse which occurs at 19 degrees Gemini. That is where the current North Node (new beginnings and choosing to unite in love) is at this December Eclipse. The promise is creating a new love story not just individually but collectively. Creating A New Earth.
The Sun and Moon are located at 23 degrees Sagittarius and are travelling with Mercury at 20 degrees Sagittarius and the South Node at 19 degrees Sagittarius making this a South Node Eclipse (releasing judgment, prejudice, and the need to be right). The potential for HEALING is very powerful. In Oct 2020 the South Node aligned with the Fixed Star Ras Alhague in the Constellation of Ophiuchus, the Serpent Holder. Ras Alhague is the healer. Its message is to repair that which has been damaged (to heal what is broken). This New Moon Eclipse is aligned with Ras Alhague. Mercury (our thoughts and perceptions) will align with this Star on Dec 16 (healing our spirit and following our vision quest path).
The Sun/Moon are guided by Jupiter at 28 degrees Capricorn. He is travelling with Saturn at 29 degrees Capricorn and Pluto at 23 degrees Capricorn, Jupiter and Saturn are completing their Capricorn journey (strengthening our spiritual foundation and following our Soul Purpose Path). On Dec 21 they enter Aquarius beginning a new 20 year cycle (giving our gifts of healing to the New Earth and her kingdoms). The cycle is actually the next 200 years where these two giant planets will meet in air signs (cosmic consciousness). Pluto (transformation of society) remains in Capricorn until Jan 2024. (He briefly enters Aquarius in March to June 2023 then retrogrades back into Capricorn until 20 Jan 2024 when he re-enters Aquarius and will be there until 2043). For now while he remains in Capricorn he continues to support healing, release and transformation personally and collectively.
Venus is at 28 degrees Scorpio (deep healing and transformation) travelling with the Asteroid Juno at 28 degrees Scorpio (healing and transformation of relationships). Astraea, the Goddess of balance and Justice, is also there at 27 degrees Scorpio. Pluto rules this Scorpio trio and along with Jupiter and Saturn they are all in sextile aspect (new opportunities) with Astraea, Juno, and Venus. But Mars at 20 degrees Aries (motivation and action) plays a part too at this New Moon. He is travelling with Eris, Goddess of discord and conflict, who is Rx at 23 degrees Aries. They are square (challenge or motivation to change and find new ways to do things) Pluto (transformation of society). But they are also trine (removal of obstacles) the Mercury, Sun, Moon in Sagittarius (inspired new vision). They are also trine the South Node in Sagittarius (easily letting go of the past and looking forward to the future). The positive gift of Eris is purposeful action and Mars inspired action.
Since this Solar Eclipse influences for the next six months there are other important patterns that will be active for that time. Neptune at 18 degrees Pisces (deception, illusion, or illumination and mystical guidance) is square the North Node at 19 degrees Gemini (choosing to unite in love) and the South Node at 19 degrees Sagittarius (releasing prejudice and division). Squares ask us to find new ways of doing things. This square (motivation to change) will be very active Jan 26 to Feb 01, 2021. The other pattern is Pallus Athene the Warrior Queen at 02 degrees Aquarius (creative intelligence and wisdom) sextile (ease and flow) Chiron Rx at 04 degrees Aries (healing the broken self). Chiron, the healer, moves direct Dec 15/16. Pallus is aligned with the Fixed Star Altair in the Constellation of Aquila, The Eagle. It symbolizes boldness, bravery, and inspired action. This Star will be prominent again when Jupiter in Aquarius joins it Dec 30/31 and Saturn in Aquarius aligns with it Jan 06 to 12, 2021. But Pallus at this New Moon Eclipse is square (motivation for change) Black Moon Lilith at 06 Taurus (issues of illusion and deception vs personal integrity) and Uranus Rx at 07 degrees Taurus (breaking through to what is of true value and importance). Uranus will be the guide for the Jupiter/Saturn journey in Aquarius. Break through to Truth. More about that in our Solstice post next week.
Our Animal Totem guides for this South Node, Mercury, New Moon in Sagittarius are Elk, stamina, strength, and the support of spiritual community, and Owl, the wisdom to see through deception and discern the truth. For the Earth and North Node in Gemini we are guided by Deer, sensitivity, compassion, and a call to new adventures. They are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere. They will also be present for the next six months and at the Gemini Solar Eclipse in June 2021. For all of us the Clan Mother who guides us at this New Moon and the following six months (along with the Clan Mothers of the Moon cycles to come is 2021) is Gives Praise. She is the Wisdom Keeper of the art of giving and receiving abundance. She teaches us to be grateful for the truth.
The Sabian Symbol (An Astrological Mandala by Dane Rudhyar) for this Sagittarius New Moon Eclipse is “A blue bird perched on the gate of a cottage”. To develop a consciousness in which peace and happiness dwell. To be true to yourself and you will be blessed by good fortune. My very favorite picture book when I was a child was “Maeterlinck’s The Children’s Blue Bird”. It is the story of a brother and sisters search for the Blue Bird of Happiness. Remarkably I still have the book. The end of the story says “we draw nearer to happiness by trying to give it to others”.
