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 guided 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 is 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 with issues of a paradoxical nature in our lives. 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 CAPRICORN during ECLIPSE season…
You vs. ‘Them’ or You vs. ‘You’?
(Partnerships, Contracts, Commitments)
What comes more easily to Cancer now challenges your understanding. You can find balance by learning from their emotional intelligence, sense of family from a visceral perspective. Take the time to listen closely noticing when they are truly speaking from the heart. They can be a tad defensive like yourself but if you give them space to speak and express they can tell you a lot more about matters you perhaps never considered. Keep in mind they too will be in the process of evolving and so integrating your viewpoint from the opposite end of the table.
It’s a hard road. The position of the Nodes, the Eclipses create tension for all the Cardinal signs: Libra, Aries, Cancer and yourself. It is a tension however, that promotes experiences that help you access the many opportunities available when the North Node shifts into Gemini in 2021. Essentially, if you are looking to make deeper connections with others, gain a stronger sense of emotional security, the eclipses will provide precisely the training and preparation you’ll need.
January 6th, 2019 -SOLAR ECLIPSE in CAPRICORNThis eclipse opens a new chapter in your life Capricorn. You are taking yourself more seriously. Truth be told most Capricorns carry an authoritative air most of the time. However, there is something different at this time in your life. You have a job to do, a role to play and either others are counting on you more than usual or you are prepped to make big decisions that will have lasting effects. Many Capricorns (and Cancers) will be thinking about marriage or at least strongly considering the practical details of how this will work for the long term. If you are unattached the same sentiment holds true for business endeavors. Other planetary influences surrounding the Eclipse cast a sobering feel over the whole issue. There is a risk that the weight of ‘things’ is too much to handle causing you to sit idle. While bold actions aren’t required just yet crafting a reasonable plan and accepting that time and patience will be required can ease the pressure. This lunar cycle ends with a LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN on July 17th, 2019 where you will be able to tell if you can stick this out for the long-term.
