Solar Eclipse December 2021 ~ Expanded Consciousness & Overload of Information

Unless you live under a rock, you have probably heard that there is a total solar eclipse tonight under the new moon in Sagittarius. While this eclipse is only visible from the south most parts of the world, such as Antartica, which will suddenly be cast into darkness during the eclipse, its effects will be felt globally in the collective consciousness on an energetic level.

Let’s dive right into our astro update and talk about the tune the planets are singing for this eclipse.

First of all, a solar eclipse occurs when the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth, thereby casting a shadow on the Earth. In a manner of speaking, it appears as though the ‘Moon has eaten up the Sun'.

Summer Solstice and Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse - Freedom Lies Within

Happy Summer Solstice friends! The solstice goes exact today at 5:44pm EDT, ringing in the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere as we rejoice in the beginning of summer. The ancients believed that the solstice was a time when the veils between the worlds thinned and this year we also have a solar eclipse on the night of the solstice, which happens about every 40 years or so, and adds a potent punch to this already magical time.

New Moon in Gemini - Digging Deeper for Truth

Tonight we have the new moon in Gemini, adding to the already active planetary alignments for the month. With four planets retrograde including Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, this normally light-hearted moon is transformed into a far more inner-moving energy than you would expect from the sign of the Twins. That is the nature of retrograde planets in general, they reveal the ‘other side’ of our reality by bringing to the surface what is normally hidden from view.

New Moon in Taurus — Chaos and Order

While the world swirls in the chaos brought about by Covid19, we can take a look at the stars to see what they have to say about what we are experiencing as a collective. Tomorrow night there is a new moon in Taurus. Usually when the moon passes through the sign of the Bull, it’s considered an auspicious time. First of all, the moon likes to be in Taurus, it’s exalted there, this is because earthy Taurus is said to emphasize all the best lunar qualities — fertility, nurturing, grounding. The moon, which is a watery planet, feeds the earthiness of Taurus and from there luscious new things can grow. Through the rulership of Venus over Taurus, there is also an emphasis on balance and harmony. So by itself, this Moon has the ripeness of fertility through which life is created.

New Moon in Aries, Spring Equinox and Saturn in Aquarius -- Being the Eye of the Hurricane

The new moon in Aries tomorrow is coming to us on the heels of some quite intense planetary alignments, that reflect the state of our collective experience with the world around us — as above, so below. Just a few days ago, on March 19th-20th we had the spring equinox, the beginning of the astrological new year, the Sun moving into Aries, a time that usually heralds in a wave of new energy. The day after the spring equinox, Mars and Jupiter aligned in the same sign, creating an explosion of tension and volatile energy. And then on March 22nd, Saturn moved into Aquarius after it’s two and a half years journey in Capricorn.

Let’s translate all this into meaningful information that we can use, let’s take a look at what the planets are saying to us about the energetic influences that we are under so that we can best align ourselves to it and use it constructively.

The mind is a great servant, but a terrible master.

New Moon in Sagittarius - Higher Mind Expansion

After an intense few weeks of a very edgy Mercury retrograde, now we are in the post shadow period, still integrating all the learning the retrograde brought us. Tonight’s new moon in Sagittarius is a welcome shift from the watery Scorpio intensity to the fiery expansiveness of Sagittarius. In order to understand the planetary influence under this new moon, we first need to understand the domains of Mercury, Moon and Sagittarius. Mercury rules the mind, and our intellect (amongst other things), while the ruler of Jupiter, Sagittarius is the ruler of the higher mind. This is the aspect of our mind that is closer to our Soul, our higher consciousness.
