Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius: Heal Breaches by HOW You Act on Your Beliefs

The Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius of December 2021 is a total one, and it brings you face-to-face with your shadow side. This eclipse encourages you to change your belief systems, expand your inner wisdom, and widen your horizons through philosophical conversations and new adventures. This is a complex and demanding eclipse, involving a mix of harmony and stress. The square to Pallas Athene might make the mood turn defensive and contentious but powerful help from Saturn and Chiron could bring the integration of people or ideas who previously viewed each other as enemies. Without a doubt, this eclipse provides opportunities to release your self-imposed limitations and to heal what ails you.

All eclipses show you your shadow, but Solar Eclipses specifically do so through the actions you take—thus making your shadow side more visible because you’re acting it out. Therefore the  actions you take during this eclipse really matter—let them be for healing and mending. If you have a planet in your chart placed between 7º and 17º of a Mutable sign, you’ll feel this potent eclipse. Watch the video to learn the roles Vesta, Chiron and Pallas Athene play, as well as how you can manifest this eclipse’s cosmic blessings. If you have a planet in your chart placed between 7º and 17º degrees of a Mutable  sign (Gemini, Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius) , Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius), you’ll feel this eclipse.

Remember, not every eclipse touches everyone, but when it does, it’s usually noticeable.  A solar eclipse is likely to to be marked by an external, real-world event (unlike a lunar eclipse, which is likely to bring up strong emotions and to be experienced as a subjective event). You may notice events happening anytime within the week surrounding the eclipse (up to a few days before or after).
