Eclipses create a portal – an opportunity to quantum leap – and bring in change and movement to our lives quite suddenly.
If you want to transform your life, do it during an eclipse. And even if you don’t want to change something, eclipses have the power to change them for you.
Eclipses have been historically linked to death, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes as well as bombings, wars, and sudden and abrupt events that change the course of our lives. They can also herald in major scientific and evolutionary breakthroughs and impart massive upgrades on a collective level. The eclipses occur every six months, so their themes and undertones can be felt for the duration.
To figure out how an eclipse will affect your personal life, look to the sign and degree of the eclipse in your chart. Look at the house where the eclipse falls as that will determine the area of your life that will be most greatly impacted. Look to see what other planets are involved in the eclipse as their energy will add significantly to the story of change, movement, letting go, release and rebirth/renewal.
Solar and Lunar Eclipses
There are two parts to an eclipse: a solar and lunar eclipse that occur within fourteen days of each other, hence the term “portal” being used to describe the period in between eclipses.
A solar occurs at the new moon when the moon and the sun are at the same degree in the same sign. The moon is in between the earth and the sun, therefore, from our perspective here on earth it looks like the moon is blotting out the sun. This is a powerful time for realigning life to match your purpose and set massive intentions for the next six months. Plant seeds and watch them grow.
A lunar eclipse occurs at the full moon when the earth is in between the sun and the moon. The earth blocks out the light of the sun reflected onto the moon, so the moon, though full, is darkened, and sometimes appears red. If it’s a partial eclipse it looks like a bite was taken out of the moon. Lunar eclipses ask us let go of anything blocking our evolution, keeping us small or preventing us from achieving what we’re here on earth to achieve.
December 2019 Solar Eclipse
The next eclipse portal starts with the new moon on the 26 December with a solar eclipse at 4° Capricorn 07′. The lunar eclipse follows two weeks later with the full mon on 10 January at 20° Cancer 00′.
The solar eclipse December 2019 astrology is very fortuitous because the sun and moon align with Jupiter, the planet of growth, abundance and good luck. Jupiter also magnifies anything it comes in contact with. A solar eclipse with Jupiter also promotes spiritual growth and self-evolution.
A good aspect to Uranus adds positive change and excitement to this eclipse and provides an excellent opportunity to start something new: studies, long-distance travel, relationships, investments, business and legal matters. Freedom, creativity and curiosity also get opened up and you could meet someone who could change the course of your life. Disruptions here work in your favour.
The solar eclipse also joins the fortunate star Polis to bring high ambition and success so according to the stars, anything started now will bring good fortune.
January 2020 Lunar Eclipse
The full moon lunar eclipse on January 10, 2020, at 20 degrees Cancer is all about communication because of sun conjuncts Mercury. But it is a cold, ruthless and oppressive energy because of the authoritarian, dictatorial influence of Saturn and Pluto. To find out more about their conjunction, click here.
January 2020 is emotionally very challenging and disruptive. The moon is afflicted and directly opposed by Mercury, Saturn, Pluto, and Ceres. The moon opposite sun at a lunar eclipse accentuates the polarities in your life which creates tension. The tension created with a supercharged moon opposite such an intense stellium of planets means guard yourself from bullies. This eclipse favours the powerful and wealthy and could result in them gaining even more ground.
Emotions and instincts reach their peak at a lunar eclipse. You will also notice any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony and could receive insights and downloads from the ether. A lunar eclipse represents a resetting of your emotions, clearing away the emotional baggage of the previous six months.
Thanks to Saturn, you could be dealing with a case of a pretty bad mood which leads to relationship problems. Pluto will bring up ghosts from the past and force you to deal with unresolved issues. You could be filled with fear and reliving abuse. This is all to clear a path forward into 2020 but it might be a painful process.
Collectively, we’re facing a shakedown in the balance of power among governments, corporations, banking and institutions such as the UN and NATO. The economy will be affected and not in a good way.
The January 10 lunar eclipse combines with the December 26 solar eclipse to form an eclipse phase that lasts until the lunar eclipse on June 5, 2020. Jupiter is a symbol of sweeping solutions and clean-up and in Capricorn in March 2020, he suggests that those at the top of the establishment or high society, and those nations at the top of the world order, will go through a critical clean-up – similar to a detox. This is the first chapter and there will be a second one in July and a final delivery in November 2020.
America goes to the polls in November and perhaps an entirely different class of politicians will be the result. We then enter a mini Aquarian age from December 2020. Here, power is shared with equality among the community, not handed down from the top. Power to the people.
