On January 5th (or 6th depending on where you are in the world), 2019 at 8:28pm est, we’ll be having a Partial Solar Eclipse with our New Moon in Capricorn. It will be visible only from northeast Asia and the North Pacific. The sun and moon will have their meeting at 15* degrees Capricorn. Our ancient ancestors didn’t look at eclipses the way we do now. They actually saw them as a feared astrological/astronomical events. To them, it was very unsettling as they witnessed this not truly knowing what was going on, it meant the king must die. And these ecliptic energies can be felt 6 mos after the eclipse takes place. To be exact, it will be felt until July 2nd when we will be having a total solar eclipse.
This will be serious energy that will help us not just focus on our goals, but to reach them. New Moons mark the beginning to our lunar cycle, and this eclipse begins our eclipse season for this year. This is great energy to plant new seeds in, or the to emphasize our focus on the goals that we are aiming for but wait till after the eclipse. Honestly, I know that eclipse energy can be a bit unstable at times, but this really is a great energy to start the New Year out in, as it is our perception of things that determine good or bad. It will bring things in focus that we need to be looking at. Some will see this as tricky, but honestly, when things need to change, it is welcoming to see clarity. Also, Things from the past could creep up that need to be dealt with.
With the Sun and Saturn conjunction, we’ll see mostly work-related themes such as our projection/ our public life, such as our reputation and career, we’ll be looking at our achievements, and standing up being responsible for yourself..showing accountability for ourselves will be a strong focus.
Happy Capricorn New Moon and partial solar eclipse.
