On Monday, December 14, 2020 there will be a New Moon eclipse at 23º of Sagittarius. The eclipse will be visible for about two minutes, and will only be visible to people living in the very south of South America or South Africa. As with any New Moon, today’s eclipse provides wind behind our back as we align ourselves with our goals for this month. Sagittarius is the sign of trust, honesty, and listening, which makes this New Moon an excellent time for deep, meaningful conversations in which we are honest and listen as much as we speak.
Because this eclipse happens near the Moon’s South Node and involves Chiron and Mercury, this event is an opportunity to resolve the issues that will come up related to the past. There will be an energetic clarity about our new path and an ability to communicate it to others.
Also this week, three planets will change signs and we will feel the energy tangibly lifted. After three weeks of Venus moving through tumultuous, combative Scorpio, she will enter Sagittarius on Tuesday. And, after years of heavy, earth-bound Capricorn energy, Saturn and Jupiter will move into airy, communicative Aquarius (on Wednesday and Saturday, respectively). Everything will seem easier and lighter by the weekend.
For the next three weeks, while Venus moves through Sagittarius, we will be more focused on right-action and the dissemination of information so as to elevate, educate and improve the situation. Sagittarius is high-minded and more focused on truth and education than confrontation.
While Saturn and Jupiter have been in Capricorn, we have been concerned with safety, our more status-quo goals, social status, our career, and keeping things as they have been. Aquarius, on the other hand, is the sign of progressive change, technology, the power of like-minded individuals, social media, and the process of deconditioning the self to find one’s true authenticity.
Saturn takes 2.5 years to move through a sign while Jupiter takes 1, so for the next couple of years, we will be especially open to trying new things and doing the old things in new ways. During this time whatever isn’t bolted down or realistic will give way to something new. Be willing to let new friends show you new ways of doing things, allow yourself to reexamine old goals to see if they still make your heart sing and if they might be reached in other ways.
With Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius and Venus in Sag, this is sure to be a fun holiday season. The abundance of Aquarian energy suggests it’s an excellent year to meet up with family using technology rather than the usual face-to-face. Either way, we will be more interested in celebrating with fun and laughter rather than arguing with relatives. Please do play it safe this year with the assumption of better days ahead. Happy holidays to you and yours!
