The Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is headed our way!!! 🙌 Exact on Wednesday, December 25th at 9:13pm PDT - this holiday lunation comes just days after the Solstice ushered in the winter season here in North America and many of us are in reflective periods as we envision the year ahead that we'd like to see. There is a changing of the guard at play as we harmonize what we can control in our lives, while also being prompted to release what has not been worth our efforts and is in need of new boundaries and frameworks. I have decided - for now - to convert my Lunation Blog to an Astrocast as I'm enjoying talking it through instead of writing. This approach is certainly more practical for my time and energy levels, and making the change seems quite appropriate for this Solar Eclipse energy touching down in my 3rd house! When faced with obstacles, aligning with pragmatic solutions will help us to release the old approaches in favor of building and growing the new foundations to come. Listen below and follow along with the chart and the tarot symbols to get a visual for what I am discussing in the audio!
The Aspects - Party On The South Node 🌚
Below is a chart of our Solar Eclipse at the time of conjunction here in San Diego, CA. Here we see that the Sun, Moon, and Jupiter are all meeting on the South Node of the Moon for this eclipse. We also have eclipse ruler, Saturn, about to meet Pluto in the skies for their big conjunction date. Mars is strong but has already gone through his changes, and uses that momentum to draw the line for growth moving forward. Follow along in the astrocast to watch the planets at work!
Here are the tarot correspondences, as well, so you can get an abstract picture of the archetypal forces that are at play during this Solar Eclipse! The Sun / Moon conjunction is happening in the decanic territory of the 2 of Disks, which is supported by both the Devil and Fortune. Seemingly perfect as the Devil is the card of Capricorn and Fortune the card of Jupiter. We also see The Universe card at play as Saturn's representative and the Queen of Disks that reigns over this whole territory. Click on the picture link to purchase the Tabula Mundi deck for yourself! I highly recommend it.
Which card is resonating most with you right now? Can you see how all these elements are coming together in your eclipse story?
The Symbol - Putting On Warpaint ⚔️
If you are a previous reader of my astroblog, you know I like to look at the Sabian Symbol of the lunation as it adds another bit of depth to the story that we are telling. As always, we take the degree and minutes and round up. Here we have the following:
5° Capricorn - "Indians rowing a canoe and dancing a war dance."
Theme: Marshaling Resources
The tribe is mobilizing for this Solar Eclipse! What choices are enticing you? What needs your attention and your own personal fight? What in life needs to get under your control again? What does your practical wisdom tell you about where strength is needed through the reinforcement of boundaries - or - through the removal of chains?
Eclipse Blessings to All!! 💫
This is bound to be a heck of an eclipse period when we find ourselves on the other side of it! Take good care of yourself and honor your energy levels as we cross through the portal to the other side. The growing pains we are now going through can very much feel like we are in a bit of a pressure cooker, but once we release and reconfigure our missions, we will be stronger and more in control of our lives than ever!
Wishing everyone a fabulous Solar Eclipse in Capricorn!
May the stars be with you!!! ✨✨✨
