Expansion is simply re-membering the garden that already exists. — Bashar

Lasting 1 minute and 55 seconds of totality, this will mark the final eclipse and New Moon of 2021. During a Total Solar Eclipse, the Sun’s light is entirely blocked (eclipsed) by the Moon. Astrologically, Solar Eclipses provide opportunities for transformation — the ending of an old cycle and the beginning of a new one. Eclipses provide profound periods of regeneration when we align to our destiny and embrace needed change.

This eclipse is activating the energies of the fixed star, Antares. Referred to as “splendid” or “royal” Antares is considered a star of “great success.” That is, however, if one does not strive for excess or become obsessive, either of which can lead to one’s downfall. If quality of life and balance between success and one’s goals is sought, then success is given. Combined with the Sun during an eclipse, this fixed star emphasizes the importance of acting with honor, truth, and humility.

Because this eclipse is occurring in the sign of Sagittarius, it is providing an opportunity to move into proper alignment with your innate wisdom — truth consciousness:

  • What are your individual beliefs at this moment in time?
  • What stories have you created or fabricated about your reality?
  • Are your thoughts and communication reflecting your individual destiny — your personal truth?

As a fiery and freedom-oriented sign, Sagittarius is also associated with expansion, travel, abundance, learning, inspiration, optimism, joy, nature — and most importantly — that which provides purpose and meaning in our lives! If you are seeking to embark on a new life direction, then this eclipse is a powerful time to intend to seek the necessary freedom to follow through on the goals that will support you.

A Final Note: This eclipse is making an almost exact conjunction to the Ascendant of the United States Independence Day chart. The Ascendant is the face that is presented to the public, whether that be a chart of a nation or a person. Therefore, we can expect that within the United States, the following Sagittarius themes will become more amplified and scrutinized by its citizens and the world at large: foreign affairs, high courts of law, education, bankers and commerce, travel, publications, the truth (or propaganda), matters of faith and trust. The last time an eclipse activated the United States’ Ascendant was on December 4, 2002. Three months later, the U.S. invaded Iraq. Furthermore, you will want to pay attention on December 30–31 as the Moon joins aggressive Mars to activate the 12° Sagittarius eclipse point.

The energies of an eclipse can be felt a couple of days before and after an eclipse. The ancient sages believed that eclipses were a time for meditation and learning; a special time to honor the spiritual aspects of your life. Try to keep your schedule light, remain internally focused, eat only pure foods, and do not consume alcohol. The veil between earth and the heavens is thinner during an eclipse, allowing you to more easily connect to the eternal universal wisdom that is your divine essence and destiny.
