The Eclipses fall in the signs of Cancer and Capricorn in 2019 and in 2020. In general home, security, career or our collective directional purpose will be the main theme no matter what sign you were born under.
Roughly every six months events, circumstances, that are in some-way associated to these issues work to alter our perspective and guide us in another direction. The last set of Eclipses focused on humanitarian causes, community and the pride (sometimes arrogance) of the individual more often officially or unofficially regarded as rulers, leaders. If you have followed global politics the pattern that the last set of Eclipses brought to our attention was hard to miss.
In determining how the series of Cancer and Capricorn eclipses will function and how we can handle them in the best way possible it is necessary to grapple with issues of a paradoxical nature. How we live, nurture, care for, secure our idea of home and family will be challenged and fall prey to our yearnings to be boss, wield power, money and have as much control in the outside world as possible. There is a balance to strike and the Eclipses will help us navigate this field within ourselves.
It may be helpful to think of the eclipses as if you are walking towards the horizon of your soul-center. It rests on level not too high or too low but in perfect balance with the sky above and earth below. It is a mission and half to trudge over the hills and valleys, through foreign terrain, to glean the experiences we need to prepare us for yet another trek. The horizon is always there and yet, reaching it will never be the point. The point is to explore the territory with some directional purpose in mind to keep us sane and centered in our nature.
For LIBRA during ECLIPSE season…
Ground & Crown
What comes more easily to Aries now challenges your understanding. You can find balance by learning from them, considering how they perceive home and family. Borrow from their perspectives, perceptions. Although keep in mind, they too will be in the process of evolving and so integrating your viewpoint from the end of the table – that is the meaning and value of home, and familial relations (especially of female figures) and how it affects a sense of stability in the big wide world.
It’s a hard road. The position of the Nodes, the Eclipses create tension for all the Cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Capricorn and yourself. It is a tension however, that promotes experiences that will broaden your perspective thus granting access to the many opportunities available to you when the North Node shifts into Gemini in 2021. Essentially, if an active life rich with stimulating experiences and a greater degree of freedom and independence is to be won, the eclipses will provide precisely the training and preparation you’ll need.
What has perhaps been lacking during these next two years can be built. And, contrary to what you may assume, building stronger more independent life outside of the home can make you appreciate just how important it is to have the love and support of those who you refer to as ‘family’.
January 6th, 2019 -SOLAR ECLIPSE in CAPRICORN– How important is your career to you? How important is your status outside of the home? This eclipse encourages you to contemplate why you do what you do and how much satisfaction it really gives you. After all the time you spend away shapes the mood you are in when you return. If you work from home or stay at home most of the time you’re apt to be looking for ways to make more efficient use of your time.
January 21st, 2019 -LUNAR ECLIPSE on cusp of CANCER/LEO: The changes that were made, the events that occurred over the last 2 years was about helping you find your voice. Your self-expression, social networking skills or group you have belonged to (work pals included) likely had you navigating a tricky space. Are you with them or not really but want them to believe you are as way to provide a stage to show ‘em what you’ve got. In other words efforts to find your own space amidst the crowd have shaped the situation you are in now. Uranus is involved in this Eclipse suggesting there is a choice to be made – either you are in or you are out. There is a good chance family or your significant other is involved.
July 2nd, 2019 – SOLAR ECLIPSE in CANCER– Home and career figure strongly into the events of this New Moon. Perhaps you decide to work from home or find yourself in the position of caregiver. Another possibility is you could be inspired to join a group in service of the community. Keep in mind hours after the Eclipse it sits in opposition to Saturn RX in Capricorn. You may feel that your duty at home draws you away from what you believe are important work matters.
July 17th, 2019 – LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN- This eclipse announces the ending of a phase on the home/career front that started way back in January. Hopefully you have managed to bring some balance between your home and work life. It is possible you are on the way to integrating the two quite well. However, further adjustments will be needed. Pluto and Saturn are fairly close to the Moon around Eclipse time suggesting the decisions you make now will have a long lasting effect.
December 26th, 2019 – SOLAR ECLIPSE in CAPRICORN– Over the last six months, parts of ‘the plan’ have fallen by the wayside in light of practical realities and pressures weighing on the heart. The options have changed and a new configuration is formed. You’ll be glad it has. Lucky Jupiter is within reach of this Eclipse in your domestic sector suggesting you’ve got a lot more going for you in terms of love and support than you previously believed.
