Ring the Bells, Embrace the Eclipse – Astrology
It’s been a bit since I’ve written; we’ve had some turbulence at AO HQ. I’ve encountered two losses — my stepmother Peggy (who outlived my father for simply over a yr) and my beloved cat Max (on the ripe age of 21) — in addition to a number of lingering well being points associated to my earlier bout with COVID. However I do suppose issues are turning the nook.
I hope that you simply all are protected and properly, as we journey collectively by the subsequent few bumpy weeks, in the direction of the brand new epoch of 2021.
There’s a New Moon Photo voltaic Eclipse arising on Monday, December 14 at 11:16 AM Japanese US time. The ultra-intense collection of conjunctions (Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, oh my!) that you simply and I and everyone else have been residing with all yr, are lastly starting to abate.
There’s only one extra conjunction within the collection. Saturn and Jupiter will meet on December 21 — not in Capricorn, as the opposite Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto conjunctions of 2020 have been, however at 0 levels, 29 minutes Aquarius. Jupiter and Saturn align simply as soon as each 20 years, they usually haven’t met collectively in Aquarius since 1226.
Capricorn is in fact an Earth signal; it likes to ruminate and burrow. Aquarius is Air, motion, connection. And one of many analogies I’ve been utilizing for the power all yr is the caterpillar’s metamorphosis. Effectively, now that Saturn and Jupiter are on the purpose of leaving Cap for Aquarius, we’re all popping out of our chrysalises, preparing to shake our wings and fly.
This Monday’s Eclipse is whenever you burst freed from your cocoon. Then, with the next Monday’s conjunction, you’ll start your first flying classes.
Hatching’s not simple nonetheless. We all know that even wholesome and optimistic change creates stress. No matter you discover shattering inside or round you this week, belief that it’s a part of the method of your changing into free. Or as Leonard Cohen expressed it:
Ring the bells that also can ring
Neglect your good providing
There’s a crack in all the pieces
That’s how the sunshine will get in.
The birds they sing, on the first light
Begin once more, I heard them say.
Don’t dwell on what has handed away
Or what’s but to be.
Sagittarius season is in fact upon us, the season of twinkle-lights and jollity. Let your own light shine too, regardless of any mess or fog. The Solar shaped a tough sq. to Neptune final Wednesday the ninth, and Mercury will comply with swimsuit on Sunday the thirteenth, which impairs our capacity to see and cause clearly. No, you aren’t shedding your thoughts; you’ll really feel extra grounded subsequent week.
For now it’s sufficient to maintain respiration, poke just a little bit at your shell, and provides grace to everybody round you.
I’m holding a webinar on Sunday, December 13 [UPDATE: purchase the recordings here], throughout which I’ll discuss extra about Monday’s New Moon Eclipse in addition to the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction. Please be part of me should you can.
