How this solar eclipse in Sagittarius is impacting you ? …
Aries & Aries Rising: As you bring a wisdom journey to a close, you feel the dislocation of letting this weight fall from your shoulders. The great unknown beckons again, as well as the world beyond your desk, in all its mess and contradictions. For now, bask in the space you have cleared before you rush to fill it.
Taurus & Taurus Rising: The last eclipse in this series will require a final push in the shedding of sorrows. As the snake tests its slick new skin, there is lightness but also tenderness. Perhaps you’ve become habituated to the heavy cloak of letting go, and it will take time to rediscover your emotional mobility and freedom. Baby slithers.
Gemini & Gemini Rising: This eclipse series has plunged you through the scrying mirrors of others, only to be confronted with yourself: the bell-clear cry of your soul. As you release old ways of being in partnership, know that the ache of this shedding will support you to live and love more authentically. Trust this process, and its timing.
Cancer & Cancer Rising: The last in this eclipse series will remind you that though the work is sacred, it’s easy to become attached to the cult of the hustle. Perhaps you’ve tread that fine line of shining brightly through service, and burning out. No longer willing to push to collapse, you understand that tending to these flames is a dance.
Leo & Leo Rising: As the eclipse stages its final act, you ponder the pleasures that have curdled, or the creative projects you feel reluctantly ready to release. Whether you’re surrendering your art to other people for feedback, or tossing the draft in the waste bin, letting go can feel raw and vulnerable. Trust that something worthy will re-emerge from this clearing.
Virgo & Virgo Rising: With the last eclipse in this series, you may have one final attachment to slough in the consolidation of your roots. Only the sturdiest support beams remain, and you’ve learned much about the insidiousness of wood rot. Perhaps this last hurdle is locating the home inside you: an inner sanctum that nothing can shift.
Libra & Libra Rising: With this eclipse, you’re pruning old ways of learning, communicating, and buzzing about your neighborhood. You may question your trust in certain information sources, or you may want to pull back from that group chat with siblings or extended family. Silence isn’t the same as absence. It’s okay to go quiet now and then.
Scorpio & Scorpio Rising: With the last eclipse in this series, you realise that your safety and security is no longer tethered to one person, bank balance, or mid-century furniture set. Forces beyond your control have forced you to carve our niches of safety deep within. Stepping out from these chains, you realize they were never locked.
Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising: This last eclipse in your sign, you may want to linger in the liminality a moment longer: the newborn giraffe blinking in the sunlight, before testing its spindly legs. This rebirthing process has not always been comfortable, but it’s part of your wild becoming. Your richness of self glows, requiring no adornment.
Capricorn & Capricorn Rising: This last eclipse in the series blesses you with a last cocooning hurrah. You know the drill: airplane mode, eye mask, weighted blanket, and your favorite YouTube sound bath. The extended nap session has an expiry date, so sink into this moment of repose. Sleep is the bedrock from which everything unfurls.
Aquarius & Aquarius Rising: This eclipse swan song sees you between networks, bridging your ride-or-dies with an emergent cohort. You crave the artists, myth-makers, activists, and cosmologists of the brave new aeon. Still, you may need to grieve the people, or haunts that no longer serve. They carried you here after all. Give thanks.
Pisces & Pisces Rising: The last eclipse in the series is a loosening in a life path, or vocation that has run its course. Consider the freedom of this threshold, as you scan for new professional peaks. The next ascent, you will be more nimble; muscle memory kicks in. For now, stack stones to mark this leg of the journey. Take in the view.
