The current eclipses are taking place in Taurus/Scorpio. Both of these signs are known as “fixed” which indicates that those with strong planets in these signs can be inflexible, stubborn, tenacious, loyal and determined. It is up to each individual to chose the qualities they wish utilize as they move through life.
Taurus is a sign that is often stubborn and can tend towards a belief that a filled bank account is the only way to feel secure in life. Scorpio, as the natural ruler of the 8th house, is more concerned with inheritances and debts with regard to money and security.
The eclipses of 11/30 and 12/14 will be the first since the nodal points changed signs from Gemini/Sagittarius to Taurus/Scorpio. The changing of signs points to the financial fallout that we can all expect from the dumpster fire left by the current administration. We can all simply do our best as the world around us comes back from the Covid pandemic.
These times are best used for personal growth and self-understanding because none of us have the magic wand or personal power to fix the mess individually.
Eclipses happen every six months and are often times of emotional excess, unexpected events, useless gossip and exposure of deceits. Additionally, as one of the chart indicators of karma, we can often experience old emotional patterns, resurgence of grief, cloudy perceptions or challenges that seem to appear all of a sudden.
The nodal points will stay in the axis of two signs for eighteen months and it is during the eclipses that the influence is felt most strongly. It is a good time to pay attention to the mundane challenges which are appearing now (health, relationships, career, etc.) as the eclipses will indicate it is now time to deal with the challenges. Given the magnitude of the mundane challenges it is a good time to pay attention to those random emotions which appear right now as they are pointing towards the importance of understanding and releasing the emotions which are a barrier to the freedom which comes from connecting with the perfection of our own self.
Every celestial event and planet is good for something and in terms of eclipses it is always possible to take a giant leap forward in personal growth. The next fifteen days is good for healing, growing and coming closer to the essence – we just have to observe and do the personal work!
The first of the final eclipses for 2020 will be on 11/30/20 with the “exact” eclipse at 4:45 a.m., est. This eclipse is the Lunar eclipse which means it is a Full Moon eclipse. The energy will be more upbeat and even positive. However, it is important to keep in mind that emotions and fantasy might run a bit wild at this time. This is directly on the outgoing President’s chart and we can expect that the misinformation and denial will be at a high level. I do not know if he will concede or not. The bigger problem will be that millions of people will believe his nonsense and we should all do our best to not engage with the lunacy of a Lunar eclipse.
The last eclipse will be the Solar eclipse which will take place on 12/14/2020 and be exact on 12:54 p.m., est. The Solar eclipse is the New Moon eclipse (the Moon and Sun will be conjunct) and will feel very different from the eclipse of 11/30. The New Moon is often lower in energy and this energy will be even lower because the Moon is also “void of course” as it moves from Scorpio to Sagittarius. The Sun will move to Sagittarius on the 15th.
Taurus, in my opinion, is the most stubborn of all the signs and we can expect lots of emotions coming from others without the “ah ha” moments of understanding or changing a viewpoint. Scorpio can also be stubborn but the energy is more on a subconscious and emotional level. Scorpios, unlike Taurus, can shift gears if required to but their emotions can often belie what they do in pragmatic energy. Most of us will be feeling emotional and might have to struggle to be optimistic in the midst of the “negative mind” party the world will be throwing at this time.
It is best to focus within rather than trying to change those around us. Most of us do not like change and have emotions on a deep subconscious level. Focus on those emotions with a goal of releasing and understanding them and try to not react to the negativity of others. Breathe, chant, paint, cook, dance or binge watch positive movies. We will see an uptick in mood once the Sun and Moon enter Sagittarius.
11/13 @8:20 pm Mars will resume forward motion. When a planet “appears” retrograde it’s actually closer to the earth which makes it stronger. It’s always a good thing when Mars loses a bit of strength.
11/15 @ 22 minutes past midnight we will have the exact New Moon which means that all of 11/14 will be New Moonish. This New Moon is in Libra NOT Scorpio. The Sun in Libra is debilitated and Scorpio gets much of the blame for the attributes of a debilitated Sun.
11/15 @ 9:22 pm the Sun moves into Scorpio which is a better placement for the fiery Sun. For some confidence will be better and for most of us the world will seem a bit less out of kilter.
11/16 @ 3:22 pm Venus moves out of Virgo (his sign of debilitation) into Libra his home sign. Relationships can improve and we can experience a bit more balance in our minds.
I am hoping that by Monday djt might concede but the Scorpio Sun is on his birth chart eclipse which means he’s going to be even more erratic. However, I suspect that we the people are going to be feeling just a bit better and the paper tiger will be seen as a paper tiger.
On a personal level this is a good weekend for healing, creativity and simply enjoying a long exhale.
