New Moon December 4th, 2021 – Solar eclipse

Unexpected Setbacks are coming from the shadows.

A solar eclipse is just like a regular new moon where the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun. However, a solar eclipse is more powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun. The strongest and most important aspect of astrology is Sun conjunct Moon. It gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, not too cold and calculative. It means all possibilities are on the table and you can rightly put yourself at the forefront of new plans for the future. So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

The king of the castle is Mercury conjunct sun and moon, amplifying the link of communication with the Spirit. The wise Sagittarius will see its feminine part exalted by the solar eclipse, showing us how we have forgotten the real knowledge and not the one taught by the flyers/system. It’s also a good time to see how the Nagual communicates with us, bringing a new level of confidence to our awareness. The rational mind has to stop for a while; like stopping the inner dialogue to reach perceptions of a new reality. At the moment the reality we have in front of our eyes, is the one of the flyers/system/matrix, channeled by the media's fake info. The moment of truth is yet to come and the choice we've made of civil disobedience is a key to stop the intent of the system. Karma and old memories cleansing are at the menu. Let’s be ready to attend a separate reality very soon, as the nodes axis and Lilith are going to enter new signs.

Saturn square Uranus brings unexpected setbacks and restrictive change. It can involve changes that we don’t want. This can be a very a frustrating and tense time. But if you stay open-minded, patient, and flexible, what at first seem like challenges, can be turned into opportunities to rid yourself of negative, restrictive, and limiting things in your life.

The black moon Lilith is in opposition to the NM and will be for a while opposite the moon. Hidden secrets, attitudes, teachings, knowledge, a different vision of ourselves might come from our deep unconscious making us thinking that “I am like this, but I thought, I was like that”.

From another side, we can see the darkness of the others, specially people close to us like friends, neighbors or family.

Jupiter in Aquarius, ruler of Sagittarius square Mars in Scorpio, invites us to harmonize knowledge and act out of will ... like patience and study.

On the sidereal aspect of the NM, this NM solar eclipse in the Sign of Sagittarius is actually located in the Constellation of Scorpio.

This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes which has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago.

The most interesting is that the eclipse is located in the 13th sign = the Ophiuchus the snake handle. If we consider the snake as the root of the secret knowledge, many hidden treasures might come to surface. It is always difficult to analyze an eclipse in the 13th sign, as it has been erased from astrology for centuries.

But let’s be ready to welcome unexpected setbacks coming from the shadows.

The eclipse will be visible in the West Antarctica. Parts of southern Africa will see a partial solar eclipse.
