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 perspectives and guide us in another direction. The last set of Eclipses focused on humanitarian causes, community and pride (sometimes arrogance) of the individualmore often 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 VIRGO during ECLIPSE season…
With Whom? Where At? What For? A Question of Belonging
(Social Scene, Publishing, Creativity, Children)
What comes more easily to Pisces now challenges your understanding. You can find balance by learning more about their creative process, how they express themselves, find joy in life or their musings on what it means to be a parent. Borrow from their perspectives. Although keep in mind, they too will be in the process of evolving and so integrating your viewpoint from the opposite end of the table. You may have developed a network of friends, have skills as a writer, editor or are looking to publish/ exhibit you work. However at least as much time spent on ‘getting yourself out there’ must be spent nurturing your talents and understanding your creative process. If you are not in the arts field perhaps creative problem solving skills require development. They will no doubt be useful if your aim is to improve the quality of your life – allowing for more fun, doing things you love instead of what you have to do all the time. This is where Pisces can really help you.
The position of the Nodes, the Eclipses are not particularly troublesome to you or Pisces. Rather eclipse times provide an opportunity to revamp you social life or encourage your participation in community efforts. Once the North Node shifts into Gemini in 2021 you will have received precisely the knowledge and understanding you will need to manifest plenty of career opportunities. Not only that, you will have likely changed the trajectory of your future significantly. In other words you will be better able to grab the wheel and take your life exactly where you want to go instead of shrugging your shoulders and assuming you have no choice.
January 6th, 2019 - SOLAR ECLIPSE in CAPRICORN– This can, in retrospect be a milestone moment for you Virgo. The beginning of a new creative endeavor, a new relationship that can last for the long term or simply a determination to make you life what you know it can be comes under the influence of this Eclipse.
January 21st, 2019 - LUNAR ECLIPSE on cusp of CANCER/LEO: The changes that were made, the events that occurred over the last 2 years may have dampened your spirits, perhaps incited the need to take better care of your health. You may have found the need to start new habits that spoke more towards the kind of future you wanted for yourself. Whatever knowledge/experience you have gained is re-directing you in a way. It becomes more obvious that some things just don’t fit in your life anymore in light of what you know now. As Lunar Eclipses are much like powerful full moons you are ending approaching the end of phase.
July 2nd, 2019 – SOLAR ECLIPSE in CANCER– New places and new faces, resourceful connections and network building marks the beginning of a new period Virgo. If you have wanted to make your life more your own for some time (likely) It wouldn’t have been easy without the right kind of support. If you are writer, artist, you will be taking your craft more seriously AND receiving the support you need to help you along. Do be mindful that a few hours after the Eclipse it sits in opposition to Saturn RX in Capricorn. It’s possible you can be too serious, focusing excessively on practicalities and leaving little room to allow for a natural flow. In other words the universe will be asking if you really are serious about this. Can you follow through with what your heart wants despite imperfect circumstances? Inevitably there will be obstacles, harsh criticisms. That is a hint they are uncomfortable with the new you emerging? Change is hard.
July 17th, 2019 – LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN- Pluto and Saturn are fairly close to the Moon around Eclipse time creating a rather serious vibe. This lunation marks the ending of initiatives taken at the beginning of the year. Think back to the plan you had in mind, what you hoped to achieve. It may be time to cut out part of that plan and re-invent it given the circumstances. Remember each eclipse create a shifts that directs events for a sixth month period. It is time to cut what isn’t working. Put another way consider this report card time where you can identify what areas in need of improvement. You have control over what it takes to improve the quality of your life Virgo – a little time and effort in the right direction and the guts to let go of anything that holds you down is all it really takes.
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. Who you surround your self with and how you choose to spend your time is changing your world. Lucky Jupiter is within reach of this Eclipse suggesting you are getting better and better at being you Virgo. Arguably it is one of the tallest requests we can ask from ourselves and you’re really doing pretty darn well at this point.
