Tomorrow, Tuesday 13th November, at 10.30pm GMT, there is a total solar eclipse (visible only in parts of Northern Australia) and this is a significant moment astrologically. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly across the face of the Sun. It is one of the synchronicity ‘miracles’ of our geocentric perception that the Moon and Sun just happen to be appear exactly the same size in our sky, despite being vastly different in their actual size. In an astrological chart, one can identify a solar eclipse when the new moon is conjunct with the north or south node within a few degrees. This typically happens twice a year. In May we had an eclipse with Sun and Moon conjunct the south node, and now they are conjunct the north node at 21 degrees of Scorpio.
Eclipses carry a powerful energetic imprint at a collective level and can be especially impactful at a personal level if they contact planets or angles in a person’s birth chart. They focus energy and bring issues to a head. They can be catalytic and accelerate change. So anyone born with planets (especially Sun, Moon, personal planets or angles) between, say 18-24 degrees of Scorpio will be particularly sensitized by this eclipse. Also, if you have planets at 18-24 degrees of the other fixed signs: Taurus, Leo or Aquarius, then the energy of this eclipse will be strong, and potentially challenging, even transformational. If you have planets at these degrees in the other water signs, Cancer or Pisces, then the energy is likely to be more harmonious, or at least easier to integrate. Continue reading
