On Monday 14th December 2020 we’ll experience a total Solar Eclipse unfolding in Sagittarius. This celestial energy will generate an intense portal to change. This is the opportune moment for releasing all that is no longer in alignment with where we’re headed in this lifetime to realign with our destinies. Solar Eclipses unfold along the nodal axis. This makes them intensely transformative Lunar events, particularly in comparison to regular New Moon’s and Full Moon’s that we experience every month. This week’s Solar Eclipse will be in conjunction with Ketu, the South Node of destiny, who represents our past lives, accumulated karma and compulsive/subconscious habits.
Similar to Lunar Eclipses, Solar Eclipses create an energetic surge and shift in the collective consciousness to realign us with our Earthly missions (if we seem to have lost our way or have gotten sidetracked). Whilst Lunar Eclipses generate more personal, internal and emotional/mental transformations, Solar Eclipses work on an external scale, causing changes to our environment and an uncomfortable feeling within us that prompts us to say yes to change. A shift in our journey and our story has begun, and under this lunation, we’re beginning a new chapter. Other themes of this Solar Eclipse include truth (Sagittarius the truth-seeker), confidence, new-found enthusiasm, confusion/conflicting thoughts and feelings (Mercury Square Neptune) and distortion of the truth (Mercury combust under the Sun’s energy, causing ego to precede the mind).
Here are your Solar Eclipse messages…
Aries, the Solar Eclipse will be unfolding in your 9th house of expansion, spirituality and philosophy.
You’ll feel more inclined to instinctively say yes to any opportunities that present themselves under the Eclipse, but you’re being called to slow down. The opportunities that are arising may be meant for you and maybe everything that you’ve manifested, but it’s not yet time to charge forwards. Take your time. Reassess your priorities. Broaden your perspective. This doesn’t mean that you can’t say yes later on! Remember, the upcoming Great Mutation on December 21st is the perfect opportunity to re-emerge from this period of rest and begin a new project. It takes the rest of the zodiac a little longer to get back into the groove of things in comparison to you, so make sure that you’re taking advantage of every restful moment whilst you can.
Taurus, the Solar Eclipse will be unfolding in your 8th house of merging, intimacy and mysticism.
All hidden truths will be revealed under the Solar Eclipse energy and you’re being called to pause, reflect and then respond later. With Mercury’s energy scorched under the Sun’s aura (Combustion), the way that we communicate is distorted and is now fuelled by our ego’s rather than our intellect. The only way to navigate through this difficult energy is to be open and to take everything with a grain of salt. Your house of merging and sharing will be illuminated by the eclipse, but this is not a great time for negotiations or important discussions and decisions surrounding any joint income/property/belongings. With the blend of spiritual Sagittarius and the mystical 8th house, take full advantage of the psychic portal that is opening for you (keep that third eye activated)!
Gemini, the Solar Eclipse is unfolding in your 7th house of partnerships.
You may be feeling mentally restless under this Solar Eclipse and on a deep search for freedom, which could put tensions on your relationships (both romantic and platonic) if you aren’t open to sharing your truth. The foundation and structure of your relationships may begin to wobble and change, which could trigger some difficult endings this week. Just remember, everything that is unfolding right now, as always, is for divine reasoning. Take some time to dive deeper into your thoughts surrounding what it is that you want out of your relationships. How do you want to feel? Who and what do you need to walk away from? Don’t forget that an important aspect of closing chapters is being able to identify what you’ve learned and what you’ll seek out and do differently next time.
Cancer, the Solar Eclipse is unfolding in your 6th house of work, health and service.
If work has being tiring and stressing you out, it’s time to take a step back and evaluate what needs your job serves and where it leaves you feeling unfulfilled. What do you need to do outside of work to get the best work-life balance? How long have things felt uncomfortable for you? Have you missed any signs or red flags that you aren’t where you’re meant to be? You could be in need of rest or maybe it’s a new routine that you seek. Either way, you’re in control and this Eclipse is calling you to be honest with yourself and confident in any steps taken in a new direction. The universe has your back, and it’ll often make things fall out of place so that you can take initiative in putting things back together in a new and healthier formation.
Leo, the Lunar Eclipse is unfolding in your 5th house of romance, play and self-expression.
The Eclipse may be causing us all to feel exhausted, but you might find yourself feeling a spark of excitement and new vitality within you at the prospect of getting your energy and groove back. You may already be thinking about returning to the dating scene in 2021 or re-visiting a project or hobby that you’ve left behind over the years. The Solar Eclipse will cause shifts to your self-expression, changing both the way that you feel about yourself and the way that others perceive you. Embrace this and don’t allow anyone to confine you to the barriers of who you once were. Try something new, go somewhere different, get to know new people. But before you get too enthusiastic, remember that this transition is about testing new waters, not trying something different and committing right away! Be conscious that the 5th house also rules the inner child, which could mean that old wounds decide to resurface under the Eclipse.
Virgo, the Solar Eclipse is unfolding in your 4th house of the home, roots and family.
The theme for you under this Solar Eclipse is security. Where do you feel comfortable and safe? Who do you wholeheartedly trust? Who do you consider your support system and who is relying on you? The Solar Eclipse could cause shifts and changes to the root of your being- it could be new information coming to light about your lineage and ancestry, family secrets, or literal changes to your home environment. The 4th house is ruled by the Moon and can also represent divine feminine energy and motherhood; this is you if you are a mother yourself, or if not, the relationship with your mother. Allow yourself to be taken care of and nurtured. Any creative ideas or new ventures that you’ve been hesitant about should be explored!
Libra, the Solar Eclipse is unfolding in your 3rd house of the mind and communication.
The Solar Eclipse may cause a surge of optimism and vibrancy, which is exactly what is needed under the heavy energies that we’re currently experiencing. You’re being called to explore journaling and any other literary talents of yours under this Solar Eclipse. The ideas that come to you now will be deeply appreciated by others when you share them later on- whether that’s new ideas for work, advice for others or just free-flowing creative expression. Transiting Mercury and Neptune are squared, which causes difficulties in the communication department. Make sure that you’re not sharing any of your ideas prematurely or dropping your opinion when it isn’t needed.
Scorpio, the Solar Eclipse is unfolding in your 2nd house of values, possessions and finances.
The security and comfort within your environment and yourself that you’re seeking can be found through your spiritual beliefs under the Eclipse. You’re being called to connect with your higher self and the divine to strengthen your decision making and call in the right energy (and things) that are destined for you at this moment. The Solar Eclipse is unfolding in your house of finances, which could bring forth new opportunities for money-making and changes to your values, spending habits and routine, but only if you’re willing to step out of your comfort zone and allow these changes to unfold. Which areas of your life have you been investing time and energy into for superficial reasons? (e.g, staying in a job that makes you miserable just for the money, staying in a relationship because it boosts your ego or doing things that don’t serve your highest good out of revenge).
Sagittarius, the Solar Eclipse is unfolding in your 1st house of the self, ego and identity.
Expect huge transformations to your identity this week- that is: how you perceive yourself, your self-esteem and where you see yourself headed in life. The Solar Eclipse is unfolding in your very personal 1st house of the self which is a huge deal! Remember that life is all about discovering and re-learning who we are over and over, like a continuous cycle of death and rebirth. What’s important right now, is that you know where you are. The future may not be so clear right now, but everything will start to make sense again soon. Start writing down your short term (monthly) goals and be prepared for impulsive urges to dye your hair, change your name and relocate to a new city in a bid to escape the madness (you’ll be fine, just stay grounded).
Capricorn, the Solar Eclipse is unfolding in your 12th house of the subconscious, hidden enemies and rebirth.
It’s time to prioritise your mental wellbeing as the Eclipse will illuminate your 12th house, causing sudden shifts and changes to your routine and your subconscious. Hold onto the optimistic energies of Sagittarius, as this Eclipse will rock deep, internal parts of yourself that you’ve kept buried for a long time. When faced with doubt, unexpected setbacks, delays and opposition from hidden enemies, remind yourself to surrender, activate your third eye and keep your faith in the universe. Self-care is a must! Take a work break, cleanse your space, journal, meditate and move your body. The theme of karma is greatly amplified for you under this Eclipse. Be prepared to close chapters where and when the universe tells you it’s time to let go.
Aquarius, the Solar Eclipse is unfolding in your 11th house of groups, friendship and connection to the collective.
The Solar Eclipse may cause sudden changes to your social circle and dreams, so you must allow these changes to unfold without resistance. Explore new options and realities. Be open. Be optimistic. During this time of transition, it’s easier to succumb to the feelings of loneliness, isolation or being left out. Remember that you’re currently feeling the same shift in energy as everyone else, and this is a good way to still feel connected with your community. Commit to the people who have a strong presence in your life and rely on those who have your back. Keep focusing on what your hopes and wishes are for the future, even if they seem to be changing. Start something (even if it’s just writing down an idea).
Pisces, the Solar Eclipse is unfolding in your 10th house of career, reputation and legacy.
What will be your legacy when you are long gone from this Earth plane? This is what life is all about- the things that we do and are therefore remembered for (even if we only touch one person). Under the Solar Eclipse, you’re being called to assess what it is that you want to be recognised for, who do you want to be? How has this changed over the past few years? And are you still in a place of changing your mind currently? What is your story? Are you clear on what your Earthly mission is? Does your current career path align with this? What do you want to accomplish?
