Eclipse Energy released by Mars and Uranus during New Moon in Leo 2022

Reading Time : 4 minutes

Eclipse season one started on April 30th, and lasted for all May lunation, ending with the new moon in Gemini of May 30th. However, as I often report on this blog, eclipses are unpredictable events. This doesn’t mean that as astrologers we can’t predict them, of course. But It does mean that a precise timing is difficult to nail down.

In previous articles (especially on this one about the Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio) we said that Mars would have been the activator of eclipse energy. This is because in general Mars is particularly suitable for lighting the fuse and blowing things up. In particular, this time it also rules half of the eclipses of the new cycle, taking place between the Taurus-Scorpio axis.

Eclipses 2021 Season 2 — Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius – Facing the Truth

Reading Time : 6 minutes

In the previous article, we talked about the last Lunar Eclipse in Taurus. We saw how the feminine archetypes, through the forces of the Moon and Venus, are trying to hinder the conflict represented by the Saturn-Uranus Square. On the contrary, the masculine archetypes don’t seem to want to stop. Especially because the perfection of the Square is expected for late December—right on Christmas’ Eve.

How is this second and last eclipse of the season going to affect the overall situation? What’s the specific impulse brought by it? In this article we are going to tackle the phenomenon by looking at the planets involved. In particular we are going to focus on Jupiter, lord of the Eclipse, and its relationship with Mars.

Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius 2021

This is going to be a Total Solar Eclipse, taking place at 12° 22′ Sagittarius on December 4. As always we are going to analyze it by looking at all its different aspects. Is it a South or North Node Eclipse? What’s the relationship between the planets? What’s the meaning of a Solar Eclipse from a spiritual perspective?

Eclipse season 2 is here. We are going to have a Partial Lunar Eclipse at 27° 14′ Taurus on November 19th, the first in this sign since 2014. Whereas on December 4th there will be a Total Solar Eclipse at 12° 22′ Sagittarius. The first is a Full Moon event, the second a New Moon, so the phenomena belong to two different lunation. This means that in terms of forces involved, they’re going to be separate events.

Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn 2020 – What have we lost?

Reading Time : 4 minutes

The Moon in Capricorn, the image of a lonely child, trying to survive in a winterly environment. Summer outside, but inside the echoes of a cold loneliness. What is left for us after 6 months of crisis? What the hidden rubble after all we’ve been through?

The Archetype of the Orphan is around us, always present after a big loss. What have we lost? Is it “only” a sense of security and stability? Or is it much more concretely a job, money or maybe the hope of realizing our projects?

If we look within ourselves we cannot pretend that nothing has changed. This eclipse is here to remind us of this.

Last Winter Configuration reforming in Capricorn

Saturn has just entered back to Capricorn. In fact, the energies of this sign are going to be reactivated. Not only by the presence of its ruler, but also by the eclipse taking place on July 5th 2020.

This is going to be the last eclipse of the season, as well as the last eclipse in Capricorn. In fact the lunar nodes axis has changed sign, moving backwards across Gemini and Sagittarius. This means that we are going to experience further eclipses in Capricorn only in about 9 years.

Eclipse of Summer Solstice 2020 – Crone Archetype and Tsunamis

Reading Time : 4 minutes

The Summer Solstice is the time of the year when the principle of Light manifests itself at its peak. The Sun shines through in all its glory, dimming our senses and our consciousness. This year, just when the Sun is about to touch the highest heights, the shadow of the Dragon crawls in, devouring it.

This is going to be an Annular Solar Eclipse, meaning that the Moon is not going to overshadow the Sun completely. Still, the ring is going to be very thin—to the point that any technical subtleties cannot possibly change the symbolic meaning of the event.

As you may have guessed, a Solar Eclipse at the time of the Summer Solstice is not a good omen. It is going to occur exactly at 0° Cancer, just after the entrance of the Sun in the sign. This is a very rare event, that adds up to the peculiar planetary cycles of this year. Just think about the Saturn-Pluto conjunction that announced the covid-19 pandemic. 2020 is everything but a quiet year.

A North Node Eclipse

Every Solar Eclipse is first and foremost a New Moon, the time of the month when the night is darkest. When one of the nodes is in conjunction with a New Moon you have a solar eclipse. In this case, the North Node is involved, the so called Caput Draconis—the head of the Dragon.

Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius 2020 – Isis-Sophia and the Dragon

Reading Time : 2 minutes

The Full Moon, living symbol of the light piercing the darkness, shines through the night in Sagittarius, sign of the Higher Knowledge. Isis-Sophia, Goddess of Wisdom, faces the South Node—Cauda Draconis. The tail of the dragon tries to swallow the light of consciousness by means of the shadows of oblivion. The sound of the sistrum, instrument of the goddess, keeps the dragon at bay.

A new series of eclipses is about to start. The next Full Moon on June 5th is going to be a penumbral lunar eclipse at 16° Sagittarius. The following New Moon, an annular solar eclipse taking place in the very heart of the Summer Solstice (1° Cancer). Lastly, the Full Moon of July 5th, ending the series with another penumbral lunar eclipse at 13° Capricorn.

In order to see if and how the eclipse is going to affect you, just check any planet from 14° to 18° Sagittarius in your Natal Chart. Usually, lunar eclipses bring in the following 6 months unexpected revelations that have unexpected consequences. The planet involved, its house placement, and the houses that it rules are going to point out specifically the possible areas of life interested by the event.

In any case, let’s try to remember to connect to our wisdom within. It’s very easy for the forces of summer to dim our consciousness, especially after all these months of lockdown. We all crave sun and freedom. But even though we just want to go back to our normal lives, let’s remember where the wisest part of us lies.

We’re going through a traumatic pandemic. There’s not much we can do but treasuring the experiences we went through. Otherwise it will have been all for nothing, and the desire of having our life back will have obscured the self-knowledge that we had the opportunity to develop these months. “For it is the doom of men that they forget” —Merlin, from Excalibur movie.
