A solar eclipse is just like a regular new moon where the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun. However, a solar eclipse is more powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun.
Eclipses are portals that bring in a rush of karmic energy. If you’re of an ancient Astrology school of thought, then Eclipses will be considered dangerous times when people should be fasting and staying indoors. These superstitions are ways to force us to quietly meditate and reflect during these high energy times.
The New Moon Solar Eclipse will be shaking up relationships with our career, reputation, status, traditions, authority, our material life, and our Father and or older men in our personal life. This is so we can relate to them with more humility, patience, understanding, tolerance, and love.
Solar Eclipse conjunct Saturn- Releasing outdated three-dimensional ways of looking at the Saturnian things in our lives. Things are more than brick and mortar. People are more than skin and bones. Traditions are more than right and wrong.
Solar Eclipse sextile Neptune- Artistic and spiritual understanding.
Mercury entering Capricorn- Blunt and harsh truths being revealed.
January 6- Uranus stationing direct 28 degrees Aries- Progress
The Solar Eclipse will be releasing out dated perceptions of the power structures in our life. Saturn rules the men in our life- specifically our Father, Grandfather, etc so expect some reconciliations with those figures. The Eclipse sextiling Neptune will allow us to see these structures from a deep spiritual place. Mercury entering Capricorn on the same day is also helping us to perceive the structures we have built in our life and what needs to be tweaked and refined. Uranus stationing direct the day after the Eclipse is casting off the shackles of yesteryear ready to assist is with this restructuring.
The Kozminsky Symbol for the Eclipse is:
16º Capricorn: A number of books floating near a coast land rich in vegetation and floral charm, with beautiful grottos rising from the blue sea.
Denotes one, artistic and nature-loving, who has a rapturous appreciation for the grandeur of creation and endeavors by some media-art, letters, or song-to express it. He has a strong affinity with nature, and her many moods will act and react on his sensitive soul. It is a symbol of Expression.
The Eclipse at 15 degrees Capricorn is happening at the most dense degree of the most dense sign in the Zodiac. Here it’s as though the Capricorn ruled house in your chart is under a pressure cooker. Whenever something is released, we can say that a healing process has begun. This is Capricorn. A harsh material lesson learned, in order to rebuild spiritually.
The Solar Eclipse is a South-Node eclipse meaning there will be things leaving our lives. A Saturnian Eclipse always brings with it a heavy energy that forces us to confront our fears. You can either look at the Saturnian things in your life as burdensome mountains, or you can view them as beautiful grottos, richly vegetated with species you have never seen before. This vegetation is love, in all its varying forms. The opposing sign to Capricorn is Cancer- the sign of selflessness. When we are able to transmute our triumph of our material structures into love, we can accept the beauty and grandeur of creation. Capricorn eventually learns that life isn’t all about money, fame, and stability. It’s about what we choose to do with those things that matters.
Our Heart field is the densest Chakra, meaning when we must learn to master its harsh lessons before we can appreciate its meaningful gifts. This is the lesson of Capricorn- we must slowly trek up the mountain, confronting obstacles and challenges along the way before we can enjoy its majestic view.
Don’t be afraid of the restructuring that will take place over the next 3 months from this Solar Eclipse. What seemed like a long trek up a mountain will actually have been the emergence of grottos- new dimensions of love and understanding rising from your sea of emotions.
