New Moon / Eclipse in Sagittarius; 14th December 2020, 17:16 CET, Malta.

Venus (Scorpio) square with Saturn / Jupiter conjunct (Capricorn) :

The square aspect indicates a difficulty, a challenge. In this case it indicates that there is a need to introduce structure into our emotions, especially those that resist such structuring. The saturnian temptation, however, is to try to control one's emotions through a serious and ambitious mind. That is a trap, it plays directly into the negative and dead-end nature of the square. Another trap is to unconsciously become obsessively involved with one's emotions.

The evolutionary side of the square however is about observing the emotional disorder, feeling its intensity without shame or prejudice, and finding a way to channel this into creative action. The caution and detachment of Jupiter in its current placement comes handy here, especially since we need a counter-balance to Neptune's tricky placement (square to eclipse).

An example of something that worked for me was listening to an album by The Cure. It matched my emotional state at that moment. The simple act of listening to Plainsong while the Sun peeped occasionally from behind the sad clouds gave some sort of perspective on the turmoil I was feeling. In the end I felt re-energized, even happy. The heaviness of my problems was balanced by a serenity that beauty brings without much explanation or preparation. So appreciate and create beauty and try to avoid any ugliness (example; violent movies/music, traffic, annoying or tense people, etc) as the eclipse's square with Neptune puts the risk of being 'infected' on the menu.

To me the fling with beauty feels as a perfect example of a positive use of the saturnian tendency, so allow me to rattle on for another couple of lines about my experience with The Cure's album. I would like to share the perception that fell on my lap because of that experience.

What is there in this music that helped put back my inner order? Simply put, it was the great care, dedication, and above all loving attention that was put into the music. The music is saturated (notice a saturnian sound to this word?) with the kind of order that the mind cannot rationalize, the kind of order that attention, naturally, creates. At the right moment, a work of art that is saturated with order can help a person taste that order again; it gives it. And creating and appreciating any kind of beauty restores order, because it calls attention to arise. Mercury's trine aspect with Mars allows a certain sharpness for the mind, and both inward and outward communication is boosted.

The Moon eclipses the Sun in Sagittarius. For a time we are going to be nomads, sages, students guided by nothing else but our deep silent side. With Mercury, the messenger, conjuncting the eclipse (all boosted by a trine with Mars) we can expect messages coming to surface from the depth of our being. We also have a special opportunity to act with confidence, based on our intuition.

Mercury has a good perspective of what our destiny looks like as it is in opposition to the North Lunar Node. This however also means that both Mercury and the Eclipse are in conjunction with the South Node, associated with our deep-seated past, and of course, karma. This might indicate that we are about to find out some pretty unpalatable stuff about ourselves; but this also plays an important role in moving forward with our lives, finding new ways of being that are more in harmony with who we truly are. Action in this direction is welcomed by this chart. Time to make a move.

This Eclipse feels like an appointment with destiny.

Last but not least; take a look at this article (The Supreme Chronology) as it gives us a kind of a map of some important astrological facts happening this month that we do want to look out for.

Good luck, keep it light, and enjoy the silence.


Numbers 14.12.2020

1+4+1+2+2+0+2+0 = 12 = 3

(repeated numerology from the new moon of 16.10.2020)


The number 12 is an important one when it comes to numerology; it signifies completion.

In the Marseille Tarot cards we have the Hanged Man, it suggests ultimate surrender, sacrifice, or being suspended in time. It Represents - Breaking old patterns, Circumspection, Letting go, Metamorphosis, Suspension

When reversed we have - Egotism, Inability to change, Missing an opportunity

This is not a graphic of suffering but rather an offering towards life. The figure, as a whole, suggests life in suspension, but life and not death. An image that expresses the relation between the Divine and the Universe.


The numerology number 3 resonates with creative self-expression, social interaction, and optimism. The numerology number 3 is about creative expression.

In this set of cards we have The Empress representing this number, she sits on a throne wearing a crown with 12 stars, holding a scepter in one hand. The scepter represents her power over life, her crown has twelve stars representing her dominance over the year, and her throne is in the midst of a field of grain, representative of her dominion over growing things. The Empress is representative of the productivity of the subconscious, seeded by ideas. She is meant to be the embodiment of the growth of the natural world, fertility, and what one knows or believes from the heart.

The empress is connected also with the Death card, for she is accustomed to life, death and rebirth.

The Empress is a mother, a creator, and nurturer. In many decks she can be shown as pregnant. She can represent the creation of life, romance, art, or business.

Keywords that might resonate for you with this card - Fruitfulness, action, initiative, length of days; the unknown, clandestine; also difficulty, doubt, ignorance. When reversed: Light, truth, the unraveling of involved matters, public rejoicings.
