Out in the cosmos – towards the end of November 2019 and into the beginning of December – Jupiter was orbiting in the constellation of Sagittarius while crossing the Galactic Center. This occurrence brought in what is known as “Christ-like” energy. Jupiter represents expansion, luck, and higher thinking. Sagittarius is a known adventurer attracted to travel, philosophy, higher education, and anything foreign. Christ has been historically represented as a higher thinker who traveled, enjoyed discussing theology and philosophy with others, and reached out to the foreign, exotic, and overlooked. There are similarities here, but “Christ-like energy” refers more towards our personal potential to transcend, awake, and move beyond. It also goes beyond religion since even those without a personal connection to Christ will experience awakenings on the level for which they are prepared. The crossing of the Galactic Center does not go unnoticed.
As we continue to ride out the energy of the Jupiter Galactic Center crossing, there is another connection to Christ and “Christ-like energy” coming into play. Instead of a New Moon on Christmas 2019, we are blessed with a New Moon Solar Eclipse on December 25 – a day known as Christmas to many and recognized as Christ’s birthday. It’s also worth noting Jupiter is nearby when this occurs and expands the energies and impact of this Solar Eclipse – “The Christmas Eclipse.”
An eclipse – in general terms – represents an introduction, synchronicity, an initiation or new beginning, a shift in thinking and habits, and turning points in our lives.
This Christmas Solar Eclipse does not go unnoticed. Like the Jupiter Galactic Crossing, it stands out and stands alone while closing doors of past ways of thinking and living and opening new doorways of thought, solutions, morals, dreams, and values. It pushes us to start something new, to act and expand upon our dreams and revelations, to stay in our own lane, and to truly examine any codependent and toxic relationships currently in our lives. It’s not about the past here; it is time to liberate ourselves from self-deception and fear.
While Jupiter is nearby and expanding the energy of The Christmas Eclipse, the South Node is also at play in this cosmic occurrence. The South Node represents what is behind us, our past karma, and where we’ve been in life. The South Node is rewarding our good deeds but it can also trigger our past karma, making this a Christmas where it truly matters whether you’ve been “naughty or nice.”
On a collective level, the themes of The Christmas Eclipse are based on its placement in the 10th House and in the Capricorn constellation. Collectively, we’ll begin to examine our image, reputation, and social standing deeper. Some will experience a time of reinvention and revelation.
Other themes include our moral compass, control issues (of all sorts), liars and deceivers being exposed, and the collective being presented with a time ripe for growth and healing after a year of scandals, half-truths, and lies.
It is possible to experience a major event on the day of the eclipse, but many find the eclipse’s impact unfolds at a different pace for them. Major events or turning points will occur two weeks after, four weeks after, and even up to eight weeks after the eclipse.
The Christmas Eclipse will continue to impact us in 2020 since it is followed up with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse (January 10, 2020, 20 degrees Cancer) and with the North Node at play. The Christmas Eclipse is with the South Node (where we’ve been), but the January Eclipse is with the North Node (where we’re headed). There will be another blog about this, but in the meantime use The Christmas Eclipse to let go of control issues, to release and reinvent yourself, to go beyond your current reality, and expand upon revelations as Jupiter and the Sun urge you to do so. This is a time when you don’t just say you’re going to do something or change something – this is a time when you actually do it.
The major caveat for this eclipse is this:
With so many celestial bodies in one constellation it can feel like we’re listening to multiple conversations in our own head – in our inner dialogue – all at once. No thanks! The remedy is to take time for stillness and silence during this winter of long dark nights. Turn off and tune out the external noise and give yourself a moment of stillness to think about the bigger picture in your own life and on this planet we’re all hanging out on. Take advantage of the revelations and messages you can receive at this time. There’s beautiful energy in the cosmos and in the air we’re breathing in, so take a deep breath and enjoy The Christmas Eclipse and the doorways it opens for you in 2020 and beyond.
