New Moon Solar Eclipse
December 25, 2019

On December 25th there is a New Moon Solar Eclipse at 5 degrees Capricorn event at 9:13pm PST, 5:13am GMT on December 26th.

Solar Eclipses are like powerful New Moons and the influence of this eclipse will linger for at least two weeks after. Five of the ten planets that are used in astrology, plus the dwarf planet Ceres, are all in Capricorn, and at the time of the eclipse, the Sun and Moon are aligned with a black hole designated NGC 6624. Black holes are known to have incredible magnetic fields, so this alignment adds to the overall major impact of the eclipse.

At the same time, the Sun and Jupiter will also be moving closer to the South Node of Fate, which is about overcoming fears, clearing out old habits, beliefs, emotional blocks and hang ups. A South Node eclipse such as this one is said to bring to light old issues and patterns that we must move beyond in order to advance, individually and collectively.

Even though a New Moon is typically a time of beginnings – this New Moon is a powerful point of cleansing and release.

A time of sacrificing for the long term successes.

A time to create strong structures and security that will be foundations of the future.

The sign of Capricorn represents boundaries, restrictions, rules, taxes, infrastructure and sacrificing in the short term for long term rewards.
Solar eclipses can throw sudden, powerful, chaotic, unexpected circumstances and situations in our lives. These are trying to push us into a future that we hadn’t planned on or haven’t considered, encouraging us to go down a new path. A path that we will only understand with hindsight once we have gone through it all.

As we venture through the situations and tests that will be presented, we make space for our visions of new possibilities of what our futures can be. Our paths suddenly seems clearer, provide new confidence and renewed energy we didn’t have last month.

This New Moon is a time when a new way is going to unfold, highlighting a new path for each of us. It may appear subtle at first beginning as a new thought, a new idea, or a new feeling and then slowly shift into our taking new action. All of us are going to be awakened in some way, in some areas of our lives, and will be going through unanticipated changes.

These will be lasting changes in your life if you are willing to embrace them, which are going to happen whether you want them or not. They will guide us to see who we are and who we aspire to be, and this awareness will strengthen our determination to be the best we can be not only in the present but in the future.

With this New Moon, visualize where you see yourself in the future.

Starting now and for the next two weeks is a perfect time to set your intentions and goals for what you want to strive towards in the New Year. Dream big but stay open minded and flexible because we will all need to see what this Eclipse brings into our lives. You may need to adjust or make new intentions and goals that you might not have even yet considered or thought about. Know that the seeds you plant now will begin to grow in a few months.

The card I associate with this New Moon Solar Eclipse is one that is greatly misunderstood – The Death Card.

This card signals that one major phase in your life is ending, and a new one is going to start.
There will be major change, transition or transformation.
Endings and new beginnings.
Things will not be the same again.
You need to put the past behind you, close one door so the new one can open.
Focus your energy on what is ahead of you.
Be ready to embrace new opportunities and possibilities.

This can be an unsettling time because there will be elements of sudden and unexpected change affecting you that you cannot escape. Although the upheaval may be unwanted and at times painful, the change will bring unexpected surprises that will create new opportunities.

You may be unsure of what will happen in the future. Even if you are scared, welcome the change because you are opening the door to new life events. You have outgrown a part of yourself, and it’s time to embrace the transformation taking place while growing and changing with the circumstances you find yourself in.

Do not resist these necessary changes and endings.

Even though it may be difficult to let go of the past, you will soon see its importance and the promise of renewal and transformation. It is clearing away limiting factors which will open you to a broader and better life experience.

Take time to reflect on the ways in which you are resisting change. Challenge yourself to confront what you need to end.
Think about the new opportunities that you are missing out on by holding on to the old.
Allow the cycle to complete and be true to yourself.
This is a time to embrace the new, accept the changes that are happening, and to let go.
Cultivate the belief that whatever transformations occur for you, they are making space for you to emerge into a new better chapter of your life.
Joyful Blessings for the New Year 2020!
