When astrologers discuss these lunations, we refer to the ways in which they impact a chart as an “eclipse story.” These narratives unfold over the series (approximately two years). Accordingly, the lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on June 5, 2020, was a big deal because it was the first lunation in a brand-new series. In other words, it marked the very first chapter of a new karmic story. Think back to what occurred in your life at this time and consider the major players, conflicts, and the location.
This round of eclipses come to a close with the solar eclipse in Sagittarius on December 4, 2021. Relationship issues, in particular, those surrounding your ability to speak your truth (while Gemini is all about the nuances of communication, Sagittarius is a bit bolder, and may speak loudly to get what they want) should come to a culmination at this date. In all honesty, while both Gemini and Sagittarius are highly attractive and charming signs, they can also be a bit messy. Cycles may come to a close, but don’t expect tidy endings tied up with a nice bow. Either you’re going to work things out and feel like a star, or you should be prepared to let a relationship end; if the latter happens, just know it’s for the best in the long run.
As for the Taurus-Scorpio eclipse cycle which begins on Friday, November 19 with a lunar eclipse in Taurus, the last time these came around was in November 2012 to October 2014. What life lessons began for you nearly a decade ago? Is your life on your dream path? Or does this next cycle in 2021 mean finally using your will power and psychic passion to turn dreams into a reality? Scorpio in particular, which is ruled by warrior planet Mars and Pluto, the ruler of the underworld, knows how to transform and shed old skin to get what it wants.
Everyone will be impacted by these eclipses, though some charts will be electrified more than others. Take a look at your birth chart: If your lunar nodes are in Gemini-Sagittarius or Taurus-Scorpio, buckle up. This next year and a half will be wild. By 2023, everything will be different. And don’t worry, it will likely be for the better.
If your nodes are not in these signs, things are still going to change: Planets are also activated by the eclipses. Planets in mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) will be activated by the Gemini-Sagittarius eclipses, while those in fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) will be activated by the Taurus-Scorpio eclipses kicked off by the November 19 lunar eclipse in Taurus. Whether this placement is your sun, moon, or somewhere else, you will feel the shifts from these potent lunations.
Whether or not the upcoming eclipses of 2021 will make a direct hit on your birth chart, eclipses are a powerful, impactful, and significant time for everyone. The best way to embrace these celestial moments? Expect the unexpected and accept the unknown. Remember, celestial darlings, although our vantage is limited to our current realities, we know the horizon extends past our vision. Life is a journey — enjoy the ride.
