Capricorn Solar Eclipse on January 6, 2019 – New Structures and Deep Courage

The astrology of the first New Moon of the year – which is a Solar Eclipse to boot - is very clear. It is about sustainability, stability, and truthfulness. Anything that doesn't fit into your life anymore will go in the next 6 months!

Power in the house

A Solar Eclipse between Saturn and Pluto is per se extremely powerful. In Capricorn, the sign associated with life structures and principles, it`s twice as strong. At the latest in February, when Saturn reaches the degree of the Solar Eclipse, we will feel the full effect - you can assume that at least one important life situation will change drastically until this summer.

Double Dynamite

The New Moon takes place only a few hours before Uranus changes direction. This adds an explosive, unexpected and revolutionary element to the already very strong transformative energies. In economics and politics everything is possible in the next 6 months; unforeseen moves, power plays, or sudden changes to heretofore stable situations.

Change!!

In the private sphere we sit on the ejector seat; those who do not voluntarily plan, clean up and create structures that are good for them, will get an involuntary boost from outside. This could be a sudden layoff, an unexpected separation, or a family problem that takes more time than expected.

Uneasy?

Venus is on the very last degree of Scorpio during the New Moon; a difficult position. On the one hand, it shows we still have to digest the consequences of last year's relationship turmoil. Emotional baggage can still depress us, even if we were able to shake off or heal a lot of it at the beginning of the year. Perhaps it was not love, but financial issues that posed a problem; further sharp fluctuations on the stock market are possible. With both love and money, a kind of subtle discomfort could remain with us for a while.

Off the Deep End

Yet at the same time, 29 degrees of Scorpio holds a powerful magic and mystery. It`s old soul territory for sure, asking us one more time to dig deep in love, to not be afraid of those slings and arrows, nor dark realisations, that sometime emerge with passion. It asks us to burn away the dross and reconnect to the true, uncompromisingly loving nature of our heart. In this way, we can capture the essence of our soul-journey of the last months and take its wisdom with us into the next two Capricorn years.

Build it from Scratch

2019/2020 is all about creating new structures appropriate to the current state of your life. You will need this depth of experience in love and self-worth to take the right steps. To help further, 2019 also brings a lot of help from teachers, discussions, insights and compassion to get you on the right track.  

Teachers United

The New Moon already indicates these special aspects between Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. This year we will get unique possibilities to completely change our world view and what we think we know about ourselves for the better. So take everything that happens as a learning opportunity. This solar eclipse wants us to grow up. This requires courage and discipline. Go for it!

Happy New Moon!

Cancer Solar Eclipse July 12/13th 2018 - Emotional Supercharge

This extreme Eclipse New Moon asks us to change – but change may not come easy, and feel forced in some cases. The pressure is building. The next month will highlight what the years 2018-2020 ask us to transform in our family, home, and career situation. Anything that is outdated here will definitly draw our attention, dramas are possible. Thankfully, we have helpful resources in the background.

Destiny Calling

Here it is, the supercharged, dramatic debut of the summer’s eclipse season. This summer, we have three eclipses, one Solar eclipse more than usual. All three eclipses happen during Mars retrograde, which is very unusual. To top it off, Mars retrogrades over the South Node of the Moon, the point connected to eclipses. We have a doubly karmic, or fated, time ahead.

Dancing On Graves

What turns up the heat at this Eclipse is an exact opposition of the New Moon to Pluto. Pluto is the planet that demands us to let go of anything that is not true to our deepest self. It peels off all layers of pretense, or sometimes tears them off, no matter what. Pluto in this respect resembles Kali, the destroyer of lies and pretense that dances on the graves of our inauthentic personas…

Cocooning

Sun and Moon together represent wholeness, the coming together of the male and female energies, positive and negative poles, yin and yang. In Cancer, this is an especially fertile, emotional, and homey combination. You’ll want to go on a holiday on the seaside, and wash any troubles of body or soul away. You’ll be yearning for close connections to people you really care for. Or, to take care of your home base, your house, garden; you may long for a place to cocoon and shut out the big “bad” world.

Protected?

With Pluto and Saturn opposing the sign of Cancer, however, the bigger world, the workplace, political, economic and social conditions start to intrude more and more into the smaller, more protected sphere of home and family. This is a general trend building up to 2020, and it’s now highlighted. Expect more news in the world about problems and difficult developments for families, but also about fixing that and people starting to resist.

Slings and Arrows

For your private life, expect several possible scenarios. Emotional manipulation or drama is very possible; someone could try to make you feel guilty, or use emotional blackmail, to get what they want. Open confrontations and standoffs are also possible, with people feeling very much threatened and lashing out in response.

The Heat is On

Possible arguing points are parents, children, family stuff; household matters, things about apartments or houses, the homeland, and career and workplace issues, or things concerning your social standing and authority. Authorities may put pressure on you, this could be a boss, but also government bodies like fiscal authorities, social security or medical insurance. Immigration issues could surface as well.

Breakdown

Pluto in opposition can signify real breakdowns of cars, machines, or heretofore functioning structures in your life - the need to repair things. It also indicates that some of the opposition you encounter may be hidden, or unclear, like rumors or gossip spreading and endangering your private life or career. If something stark happens to you, it is vital to keep in mind that you have the same power that seems to oppose you, within you!

Putting Down Roots

Learning to harness power and learning how to stay as calm as possible under enormous internal or external pressure is one of the lessons of this Eclipse. You may have to dig into you deepest soul roots, or connect with your ancestors and lineage, to have the necessary power to go through the next four weeks. Just know that you are asked to come out stronger. This is an incredible opportunity to shed emotions and ties, even things, that stand in the way of your soul growth.

Lucky 13

Other aspects happening at the Solar Eclipse suggest strong helping forces in the background. Jupiter has just turned direct at 13 degrees Scorpio, bringing strong regenerative power and a non-naïve kind of optimism to the scene. Notice  that Jupiter turns direct on 13 Scorpio, while the Solar Eclipse (at least in Europe and Asia) happens on Friday the 13th. Both the day and the number relate to the goddess,that's why they were defamed as unlucky... but actually, the opposite is true.

Harmony and Support

Indeed, Venus, Saturn and Uranus are in harmonious aspect to each other in the three Earth Signs. Social interactions, friendship and love can support you, and lead to innovative and unexpected benefits and solutions. The goddess aspect is strong as Venus is close to Ceres, dwarf planet symbolizing the creative and life giving power of the Earth herself, and Uranus being close to Juno, Goddess of loyalty and also a matriarchic force.

Be Nurturing!

Stability and help is at hand if you connect to the females in your life, or nurturing men, and if you own your motherly and caring power, to oppose any bad intent coming at you from outside or inner forces. Connecting to nature herself, the soil, the ground, plants and animals, could be the sole cure for any inner torture this month (and beyond). This is not a platitude; physical contact to the earth and soil is proven to be healing – check “grounding”.

Tectonic Movements

Things that happen around the 12th/13th, and until the next Solar Eclipse on August 11th, may shake you to the core. You may be receiving messages tailor-made for your soul, or have insights that well up from deep within. During the upcoming Mercury retrograde from end of July through to mid-August, you'll be able - and in need - to work them through.

Living inside the Mystery

Expect some unexpected re-vigoration of old connections, new alliances and in the background, helpers. We are in a Mars retrograde; this is the part where the hero/ine has to make his/her way trough the underground, or withdraws wounded. This is also where they meet wise old women in the woods; elfs and dwarfs; someone to dress their wounds and cool the fever. They have to trust life and its forces. Evil doesn't exist in the natural world. Remember, the cosmos loves you. Time to become your true self!


Happy New Moon!!
