Secrecy is the word to describe this eclipse. There is a lot that is hiding amongst the rubble of our foundations that have been crumbling since the end of 2017 when Saturn first entered Capricorn. It’s common that when buildings are demolished or abandoned, treasure hunters go out and try to see if they can salvage anything valuable. Life during this eclipse is asking you to do the same.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon partially moves behind the earth, casting a reddish shadow on the moon. This indicates that our emotions and mind will be directly impacting our physical reality in much stronger ways than it normally does. This is why intense sudden events happen during eclipses. During our solar eclipse our ego takes a back seat and a lunar eclipse our emotions take a back seat. There is a certain level of clarity that presents itself if we know how to use it according to the astrological aspects present during the eclipse. It can feel like things are coming to a head because of the giant release valve that eclipses unhook.
Moon conjunct Pluto- feeling uncomfortable with the intensity of instability
Sun opposite Pluto- hidden information wanting to come to light
Venus opposite Saturn- Feeling restrained in all Venusian things (comfort, security, finances)
Venus trine Neptune- nurturing your dreams
Saturn sextile Neptune- restructuring your dreams
The Kozminsky symbol for the Lunar Eclipse is:
25º Capricorn: A man, gaudily attired, opening a document in the centre of which is a dagger.
Denotes one who will hold positions of responsibility and advantage. He has an inborn love of show and glitter, pomp and ceremony. He will be endowed with much mental ability and powers of persuasion, but is not free from secret enemies who seek to end his career by craft or violence. It is a symbol of Unrest.
Admist the turbulent restructuring of the past year, what have you discovered? Maybe you’ve come to understand just how attached you are to material things? Maybe you’ve come to realize that you have no clue what you want? Or maybe facades have finally been decayed? It is these realizations that are revealing the secret dagger. Pick it up and use it to slice through the chaos and uncertainty of these fast changing times. How do you do this? Well, to start off, you need to use the strong Neptune influence at this eclipse (and all of 2019) to visualize what you want. Whatever first comes to mind is what is honest. Keep this image in your mind everyday and help Saturn out who needs a little bit of imagination every now and then. Your secret dagger is also glinting with the power of priorities. What is most important to keep the dream alive? For example; let’s say that what you most want is to buy a new home. Visualize this home and think about it everyday. To keep this image alive you need to begin focusing on what will make a home successful. A home requires a strong family unit. Perhaps this is the area of your life that is still being restructured. Let Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node do its job. Life gets difficult when it’s being re-oriented. What we most want is what is currently being refined.
So the secret dagger is really just a tool of surrender. He is appearing during this eclipse with a huge test. You can wield it and try to cut through the uncertainty with your dreams, but you have another choice. You can choose to NOT pick up the sword and instead bow down to the master of life. You can let things come undone so they can be tied in a stronger knot, you can let things leave so room is made for something bigger, and you can visualize your dream by taking these bits and pieces of brick and mortar and lay them in a new pattern. It’s choosing to see the rubble as gold bricks instead of broken pieces of life that are the secrets hiding amongst the rubble of your foundations at this eclipse.
Did you catch the hidden joke? Daggers can’t cut through rock. And this is the test. The more things fall apart, the less power you have to put them back together, unless you give up control and visualize the new blueprint. You are the architect of your dreams, and in order to start the building process you have to see the design. See it and believe it.
