The Eclipses fall on the axis 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 perspectives and guide us in another direction. The last set of Eclipses focused on humanitarian causes, community and pride (sometimes arrogance) of the individual more often officially or unofficially regarded as rulers, leaders. If you have followed global politics the pattern set by the last series of Eclipses would have been hard to miss.
In determining how the series of Cancer and Capricorn eclipses will function and how we can handle them it is necessary to deal with polarities and paradoxes that exist 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 TAURUS during ECLIPSE season
It’s Not What You Know … It’s What you Don’t Know
(Family Values, New Perspectives and Explorations)
What comes more easily to Scorpio now challenges your understanding. You can find balance by learning from them, by understanding their life philosophies and the stories that formed them. Borrow from their perspectives and perceptions. Although keep in mind, they too will be in the process of evolving and so integrating your viewpoint from the opposite polarity. You may have a ton of facts that can support what you believe Taurus. However, as the ‘facts’ accumulate the bigger story must change with it – Scorpio will be able to help you develop a more cohesive picture.
The position of the Nodes, the Eclipses are not particularly troublesome to you or Scorpio. Rather eclipse times provide an opportunity to broaden your communication skills, belief systems and the importance of family. Once the North Node shifts into Gemini in 2021 you will have received precisely the knowledge and understanding you will need to live your life according to a higher set of values. Not only that, you will have the ability to share what you’ve learned with others to great effect. The experiences brought on by this eclipse series must be had first though Taurus.
January 6th, 2019 - SOLAR ECLIPSE in CAPRICORN– A new life experience, perhaps a viable business plan requires a diving into an extended research session. The need to clarify what you believe and what you can reasonably achieve begins to bubble now. There are other folks who can relate to your ideas and how you feel about the struggles of life but those aren’t the ones who will open your mind. The folks who challenge your views will inspire the best ideas Taurus. In other words, this eclipse comes with plenty of food for thought to gnaw on.
January 21st, 2019 - LUNAR ECLIPSE on cusp of CANCER/LEO: The changes that were made, the events that occurred over the last 2 years drove you to prove yourself as leader of the pack. You may have found that you held more authority within the family circle or at very least expected to be regarded as such. The whole idea is tapering off and with this eclipse on the cusp of Leo it marks the last of the series. The focus is on communicating with heart in a way that will naturally elicit the respect you’ve worked, perhaps too hard for. In other words it’s time to let go of your pride and work from developing a stronger sense of self-respect from the inside out.
July 2nd, 2019 – SOLAR ECLIPSE in CANCER– Heart and mind are on the same page when it comes to saying what you really need to say right now Taurus. Do be mindful that a few hours after the Eclipse it sits in opposition to Saturn RX in Capricorn. It’s possible you come off as too cold or focus excessively on practicalities leaving little room to listen to what the receiving party has to offer in light of your words.
July 17th, 2019 – LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN- Pluto and Saturn are fairly close to the Moon around Eclipse time creating a rather serious vibe. It is likely that you will be pushed to re-consider your beliefs once again. If you think about it what we believe, regardless of proof or supporting fact, has a major influence on how our lives play out. A little adjustment, amendment to your perspective can indeed change everything. Lunar Eclipses can be described as extra strong Full Moons and therefore do suggest you are ending one phase to welcome the broader landscape of another in terms of your perceptions.
December 26th, 2019 – SOLAR ECLIPSE in CAPRICORN– Over the last six months, how you see the world will have significantly changed. You won’t be seeing ‘things’ the way you did at the beginning of the year. Perhaps an overload of information, facts, figures have started to integrate, tie in with one another and what once made perfect sense now seems so outdated. Lucky Jupiter is within reach of this Eclipse suggesting you are embarking on a new journey in life – you may even literally be going on a journey at quite a distance from where you are now.
