Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius

Revelation or Confusion at the Solar Eclipse?

Sagittarius the Visionary

Confusion is because we can’t see the whole picture at this Solar Eclipse since Mercury the planet of communication is so close to the Sun. It’s the closest contact the Sun and Moon make.

Mercury is combust the Solar Eclipse and because it’s in Sagittarius it’s weak. Mercury likes logic and detail; Sagittarius is the big picture. Plus as it’s so close to the Sun it’s difficult to be objective. It’s as if Mercury is retrograde so my advice is to be cautious and check information from more than one source. Be aware of texts that are scams-there’s one concerning the Post Office that almost got me conned!

The positive contact is Saturn making a sextile to the Solar Eclipse. Saturn in Aquarius is grounding and concerned with fairness. Its a steadying influence, and especially vital since Uranus is challenging the Solar Eclipse with an inconjunct aspect. That indicates a need for change Uranus that is being resisted. Change isn’t easy for most of us. And Sagittarius can act too fast for those of us who like to take our time.

Planets into Capricorn and the Season Change

The change of season when the Winter Solstice arrives on December 21st will calm things down. Beforehand Mercury enters Capricorn on December 13th along with Mars moving into Sagittarius on the same day. Capricorn is an earth sign, so compatible with water signs (Scorpio, Pisces and Cancer) and other earth signs (Taurus and Virgo).

However Pluto is still moving slowly through Capricorn. With Venus joining Pluto issues around love, power and money will surface, whether personally or politically. In the Uk politician having 2 jobs has become headline news. ‘Slease’ has become the byword.

 Key Dates

Full Solar Eclipse

December 4th there is a total Solar Eclipse at the New Moon in Sagittarius at 7.43am. This is the last Solar Eclipse of the year and will be visible from Antarctica. The southern tip of South America, Africa, Australia, and New Zealand can also see partial phases of the eclipse.

Sun in Sagittarius

The Sun moved into Sagittarius on November 22nd. Sagittarius is a fire sign ruled by Jupiter and is optimistic, future orientated, bold and generous. The shadow is it can tend to false exaggerations, gluttony and never satisfied. However Sagittarians are the life and soul of the party so I really feel for you if this is your sign with all the restrictions you may be suffering. Comedy is the antidote, so take time out to watch fun filled joyous movies during your birthday month.

Mercury in Sagittarius

Mercury is combust the Solar Eclipse and because it’s in Sagittarius it’s weak. Mercury likes logic and detail, Sagittarius is the big picture. Plus as its so close to the Sun its difficult to be objective. Its as if Mercury is retrograde so my advice is to be cautious and check information from more than one source.

Venus- The Lover

On November 5th Venus moved into the serious sign Capricorn. Venus will now be in Capricorn until March 5th as it goes retrograde on December 19th. It joins Pluto on December 11th, 25th and then again next year on March 3rd.

Mars- The Warrior

Mars is in Scorpio- the sign it co-rules along with Pluto. It moves into Sagittarius on December 13th after the Solar Eclipse on December 4th, which lessens its violent effect.

Jupiter: The Explorer/Teacher

Jupiter moved direct on October 18th. Jupiter takes approx. 12 years to travel through the 12 signs. Jupiter rules the Law and it concerned with Truth. Where Jupiter is placed in your chart is where you find your Faith. Jupiter is now direct in Aquarius- The sign of the humanitarian- to give a final boost- the feel good factor- to all air signs- Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. It re-enters Pisces on December 29th. Water signs then benefit-Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces next year until May 10th.  Then again October 29th until December 20th 2022.

Saturn: The Strategist/Authority

Saturn went direct on October 11th. It takes approx. 2 and a half years to go through a sign. It is now in Aquarius, a sign it co-rules with Uranus. The theme of the year is Saturn in a tense relationship (a square) with Uranus. This is the old versus the new. Rebellion and protest marches are seen in the news on a daily basis. Which side are you on? Do you obey the rules? Or do you revolt? This last square is on December 24th.

Neptune: The Dreamer/Visionary

Mars is applying to Neptune making a square aspect. I highly recommend a book by Caroline Myss ‘Intimate Conversations with the Divine-Prayer, Guidance and Grace’. I am opening it at random every day and the synchronicities are amazing! Reading each prayer has become my daily spiritual practice.

Uranus- The Renegade/Awakener

Uranus takes approx 7 years to go through a sign and always brings change/revolution. It is the planet that rules inventions and genius. Its now in Taurus (May 2018-April 2026 approx.) and we are witnessing the alarming news about climate change. Taurus is ruled by Venus, and as it’s an earth sign, we are now concerned with agriculture, our food chain and an awakening to our planet’s resources. In our daily lives Uranus wants to shake thing up. Cut out old wood.

Pluto-The Transformer/Regenerator

Pluto is the slowest moving planet and currently travelling through Capricorn from 2008 until 2024. It is the God of the Underworld and the unconscious. It is assigned to Scorpio who also have Mars as their ruler. The transit of Pluto in Capricorn calls for deconstruction of the establishment and institutions. It went direct on October 7th.

Each sign of the zodiac is connected to one of these archetypes.

Aries: The Warrior, Taurus: The Lover, Gemini: The Storyteller, Cancer: The Mother,
Leo: The Sovereign, Virgo: The Healer, Libra: The Diplomat, Scorpio: The Transformer,
Sagittarius: The Explorer, Capricorn: The Strategist, Aquarius: The Renegade and Pisces: The Dreamer.
