Sagittarius season arrives on November 21st. While the sun is in this fire sign that loves to wow a crowd, set out on great adventures, and experience the new and numinous, it will bring us two eclipses. The next few weeks will be pivotal ones.
Eclipses signal times of change in the world and in our lives. They usher in new beginnings and bring about significant endings. They churn, disturb, and are somewhat chaotic in their impact — but for good reason. Eclipses bring up what would otherwise stay relegated to the shadows. When the light of the sun or moon is blocked, obscured or obstructed, like it is during eclipses, we get a different view of our surroundings. Revealing our personal and collective shadows, eclipses mark moments in the year that we should pay attention to, for what happens under them has a way of making a lasting impression.
The first eclipse on November 30th isn’t visually stunning, but is nonetheless astrologically impactful. In Gemini, this lunar eclipse (an eclipse during a full moon) will bring a flurry of messages, an influx of information, and an overwhelm of opinions. This eclipse requires discernment. It will magnify the messages we send out: limit gossip, use your energy to focus on the ideas that you want to flourish, and spread the messages you most want to come back around to you.
The total solar eclipse on December 14th (visible from southern South America, southwest Africa, and Antarctica) is a visually spectacular event. The potency of this day is pronounced and the events surrounding it are formative. Occurring as the electoral college confirms the president, this eclipse is especially poignant for the United States.
Since eclipses tend to shake things up, the less we have to rid ourselves of, the better. We can all aid the process by engaging in any kind of deep clean that we personally need between November 29th and December 15th. Think of this time period as one that is preparing us for a fresh start. As Sagittarius and eclipse season comes to a close, and just after Capricorn Season begins on December 21st, we have what is called The Great Conjunction. The Great Conjunction (Jupiter conjunct Saturn in Aquarius) is an official new beginning, the mark of a new era, and it ushers in a new paradigm. We don’t have to wait until January 1st to get a refresh.
More on that soon. Until then, trust that what gets left is not lost.
