December’s New Moon & Solar Eclipse

December’s New Moon & Solar Eclipse

The last week has been exceptionally challenging for me, and I gather from responses to posts on my FB page, for a lot of people! I felt like a hermit, and strangely felt the need to withdraw and go into a cocoon of my own emotions, pain, grief and stillness.

Within this, I was reminded of other people’s love and care for me from unexpected kindness to gratitude which helped to pull me back into reality.

I know, you like me needed to heal, embrace and acknowledge the pain or challenges that weigh us down, before we can release it to the New Moon – to begin a new cycle.

Humanity as a whole will feel a sense of optimism with this New Moon, as Sagittarius, an optimist sign that encourages taking a “leap of faith” and to transcend our situation. You may also feel your believes redefined, and sometimes even challenged this month.

If there is an area of your life that you have been avoiding, say for example – relationship, then be prepared for the truth to be revealed to you. It may not be great as we never like facing the truth of a situation, we often try to keep things swept under the carpet but the universe will find a way to push us into taking action. This is because it knows it will be in our highest good, to take a stand, deal with it and move on.

Sagittarius is a very adventurous sign. I should know! I am a Sagi baby! Totally adventurous, having moved countries and taking plenty of leap of faiths, and have this air of being a little reckless to those who are anchored in stability and security.

So if you have sudden urges of “to hell with that” and sign up for a course or deciding on doing something you would have never considered before, – GO with it!

Now let’s talk about the Solar Eclipse. I saw something online saying it was evil and a bad time. Not at all. The energy will feel heavier before (which is why we went through a difficult patch last week) but it will push us to reflect!

Now as we are heading into a new energy season (2021), and with the pandemic, a new level of consciousness, which has redefined our hopes, beliefs and emotions.

I can see it within myself. I went shopping yesterday and with all the huge sale signs all over, it was the best time to indulge. However I physically could not find any pleasure in “want”, because I was only focused on “need”. When I shifted my materialistic self into the energy of “need”, I realised I have everything I need. Yes there were small little things, but not another dress to wear on Christmas that I would wear once or never wear. I realised I had three such dresses.

Apart from a happier bank account from not over spending, I also feel pleasantly surprised and happier that I didn’t come home overloaded with bags of stuff. I have too much stuff, I realised. I need better emotions and experiences I felt.

The Solar Eclipse will cause a bit of a solar flare in the sense that we may have computer and electronics disruptions. This could be at home or at a national level, I wasn’t given more clarity on that. So do be careful with appliances, back up your computers and fix anything that seems to be on its last legs.

I should also mention what my Guides have been downloading to me all week – that Angels and Spirit Guides will be able to come closer to us and be able to do more. However as beings with no free will, they require us to ASK them for help. Call on them through prayer, meditation or just send out a call for help in your mind.

The beloved Sagittarius is an optimistic sign and always believes there is a reason to keep going and always looking for happiness. This is the time to reflect and pick out the good things that have happened, deeds you may have done for others and positive experiences, in order to start putting in the right seeds in for 2021.

This will prepare us for the Jupiter and Saturn Alignment on the 21st, otherwise known as the Great Conjunction. This will be a huge step in transformations and strong new beginnings.

New Moons are a good time to set your intentions to help you start the new beginnings cycle which will be intensified during this month’s full moon.

You can do the ritual below on the 14th or 15th evening.

Solar Eclipse New Moon July 12th / 13th 2018

Solar Eclipse New Moon July 12th / 13th 2018

The July New Moon and Solar eclipse falls in Cancer’s influence which means most of us are going to be pushed into making the core of what makes us feel secure – home, relationship, or money.  The root chakra, the essence of being and our core will be in focus. Matters dealing with pregnancy and the reproductive system will be amplified. These are not necessarily bad, in fact it will be positive outcomes or news. However if you have been sweeping things under the carpet health wise then this is the time to take action. 

While the New Moon likes us to face facts and start the shedding process, to prepare us for the Full Moon where we can “let go”, the eclipses’ role is more of one of motivation. It helps us move forward and accelerate the areas of our lives that we try to control or hide from, thinking it will go away. Just think of eclipses as you bootcamp leader – the muscled, super fit and no-nonsense guy who will push you out of your comfort-zone to achieve your goals. They come into our lives to shake things up a little because we often need the extra help!

Emotional issues will come into play so don’t be too surprised if you feel a little teary. Letting go and facing the truth of the matter is never easy. Embrace the tears and let go. It is okay to cry, it is very healing and can bring clarity to situations. I always find that when things are hard and I feel like crying, I always feel better and think better too!

This week will make you think about home – domestic stuff, your home and all the things that make you rooted, makes you feel safe and secure will be under scrutiny. So ask yourself what makes you feel secure and what is important? Is it food support, your past, how people perceive you or your heritage? How will you react if any of the above is threatened? 

I feel the eclipses combined with the new moon is here to make us reflect on what the deeper meaning of your life, what makes you feel secure and how much in power are you over your own life.

As I said, many of us sweep things under the carpet and hope for the best, from past hurts, failures, relationship with our family and even our own flaws BUT they do come back at this like these because they need to be HEALED and LET GO. Unconsciously you are still processing, holding on and being influenced by these patterns which the Universe wants to help us heal in order to move forward.

What we have to realise is that they will keep coming back in a cycle, month after month, year after year until its been acknowledged and released. So if you start thinking about the path – an ex, parents, a moment in time, failures or lost loves, sit and reflect on this and try to see the truth in the matter. 

The Solar Eclipse is your energy boost, the one which will push us out to change things. They push us forward and help us achieve more especially for those who have been stuck in a rut where work is concerned. Some of you may already have seen this happen the last few days and wondering how and why your luck has changed.

For women the theme will be about your reproductive area, mainly because the root chakra has been activated so discussions about your own fertility, motherhood or not wanting to be a mother will be a theme playing on your mind. This also means issues with menopause and periods could come up.

We are being given an energy update so shift has to happen. Change is here, embrace it and let it help you break the patterns that hold you back.
