December 14, 2020 — A Total Solar Eclipse arrives in Sagittarius on Monday, at 8:16 am Pacific Time, sparking us to wrap up major karmic lessons while catapulting us forward. As we close the eclipse vortex, anxiety could arise as we’re met with the lessons of the South Node in Sagittarius and Jupiter, Sagittarius’s rule, in the final degrees of Capricorn. These transits are pointing out our faulty belief systems and the places where we still have work to do and old issues to resolve. The key is to find our ground and embrace these last tests and lessons. They aren’t here to punish us, but to help us move into a much more expanded new phase.

In fact, Sagittarius is symbolized by the Archer, who points our arrows toward the horizon, raising our gaze to future possibilities and the bigger picture. He reminds us to be present with the journey and relish in the excitement of the unknown.

Forming a harmonious angle to Mars, who is now direct, our forward momentum is emphasized, even as the eclipse falls on the South Node—representing our old habits and habituations. Cheerfulness and optimism are ready to break through, even as we’re still working through the residue of the past and any beliefs that have kept us stagnant and stuck.

With Neptune squaring the Lunar Nodes, we may feel lost in confusion or existential despair. Meditation and nature would best serve us now, rather than unhealthy escapism or addiction. The Universe is calling us to trust our unfolding. We can have faith in the Great Unknown, which is ready to carry us into fresh, electric energies, opening our minds, relationships, and lives in ways we could have never dreamed of.

Until then, it’s time to liberate from our misconceptions, about ourselves and the world, courageously admitting that we just don’t know. This can spark excitement and buoyancy, rather than sinking us into fear, as we cling to false narratives. We can step out of the shadows and remember the warm joy of our shared humanity.

On this Sagittarius Solar Eclipse, may we find the courage to release limiting beliefs and dynamics, and trust our flow. May we surrender to what’s to come, trusting that it’s brighter and more beautiful than anything we’ve imagined.
