The Holiday Eclipse Season is officially underway, and it often brings important life-changing energies into our lives. Eclipses always bring endings and new beginnings. The influence from an Eclipse can last up to a month or more after its peak, and some folks may have to deal with its side effects for up to a year. Eclipses often shake things up in our lives to create much-needed changes. These energies can force us to do something different or uncomfortable to initiate changes.
A long time ago, many Astrologers and religious leaders believed that Eclipses created bad luck, especially for those in power or authority figures.
Eclipse Season kicks off with a Lunar Eclipse that occurs on November 19. There are always two Eclipses back to back, a Lunar & Solar one.
The Nov. 19 Lunar Eclipse is in the sign of Taurus and occurs at 3:57 AM EST, 2:57 AM CST. This energy is strong and potent because a Lunar Eclipse is basically triple the energy of a Full Moon. So it can be extremely intense and difficult to handle for some people.
During a Lunar Eclipse, we see truths come to light, which has already begun. It’s like taking truth serum. Since we are smack in the middle of Scorpio Season and under the influence of a Scorpio Stellium (3 or more planets in the same sign) involving Mars and Mercury, it’s truth-telling time when lies, secrets, repressed feelings, both hidden or denied, are revealed.
This Eclipse energy is all over us throughout the rest of the year. As information randomly shows up, endings are also very possible. The Scorpio influences were under are ruled by Pluto, which represents endings, transformation, death, and rebirth. So these themes will play out in our lives, as we are already experiencing. Eclipse Season, we tend to see the souls who are at peace with their lives, and are ready to leave, crossover.
The second Eclipse is a Solar Eclipse that occurs on December 4 in the sign of Sagittarius. Solar Eclipses are just the opposite of a Lunar Eclipse and often bring new beginnings. Solar Eclipse can feel draining, but ultimately can revitalize and recharge us after they peak, as we receive interesting downloads of information and learn new and valuable information.
The Holiday Eclipses mark the beginning of eight Eclipses that fall in the Signs of Taurus and Scorpio over the next two years. The fixed signs of the Zodiac, Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius, both Sun & Rising Signs, will be most affected by these energies, but we all can feel them in one way or another. These energies are profoundly strong but can often be felt in subtle ways, so you’ll learn what part of your life they affect over time.
If you’re into Astrology and know how to look up your Chart info, look for where Taurus and Sagittarius are in your Personal Birth Chart, and the House they’re transiting, and what it represents. That part of your life that will be the most affected.
This November Lunar Eclipse may present us with more challenging energy than usual because of the other Cosmic connections between planets occurring simultaneously. At least don’t make any decisions or draw conclusions until it’s over. Gather information during this time and see all that you learn first.
The Solar Eclipse on December 4 will be quite interesting because it connects to the United States Astrology Chart. (Every country, state, and even city in the world has its own birthday and an Astrology Birth Chart!)
Solar Eclipses bring powerful and potent energies into our lives. The December Solar Eclipse comes along with the New Moon, so it’s an excellent time to Set Intentions with the Universe. Make your hopes, dreams, and wishes known. Get your thoughts out of your head and heart and written down, and make some magic happen!
The United States and the Eclipses
On December 4, the Solar Eclipse falls at 12 degrees in the sign of Sagittarius. This placement is interesting because the United States Ascendant or Rising sign is also at 12 degrees of Sagittarius. This conjunction is potent for the United States.
The Holiday Eclipses of 2021 won’t be nearly as destructive as ones in the past, but they still can shake things up quite a bit. This influence will continue through June of 2022. There will be many endings and chapters closing and new beginnings initiated after the Eclipse occurs.
FYI – Anyone who celebrates a birthday on the day before or after an Eclipse tends to have important major events for 12 months afterward.
If you’d like a sneak peek at just how these Eclipses will affect your personal life, then think back to the Fall of the year 2002 and review the theme of that time. Depending on what part of your Astrology Birth Chart, the Eclipses are transiting are the part of your life the Eclipses will affect the most.
These Eclipse energies can take a lot of time and attention away from other parts of your life until the next Eclipses occur in the spring of 2022.
We must balance our responsibilities out in our lives during this time. The best way to do that is through spiritual practices that help you connect with your true authentic self, like meditation and journal writing. But so whatever works for you to stay grounded.
Stay Safe & Be Well
