2024 has two Solar and two Lunar Eclipses. These four Eclipses, along with several other important astrological events this year, are portending more of the same, change! 2024 is destined to be a time of great import, with major shifts, (such as Pluto’s movement into Aquarius) occurring on both the individual as well as the collective level. Watch for upcoming 2024 Eclipse details in my newsletter.

A Solar Eclipse occurs when the Moon travels between the Sun and the Earth and Lunar Eclipses occur when the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon. Lunar Eclipses occur during a Full Moon about two weeks before or after a Solar Eclipse (New Moon).

Eclipses are potent celestial events because they imbue our psyches with the essence and spirit of “a great mystery.” Humankind has long been captivated by Eclipses and their cosmic potential of revelatory happenings. Eclipses provide us with an opportunity to uncover areas of our life that were previously hidden and need our attention.

During an Eclipse the Sun and the Moon align with the nodes of the Moon, which astrologers often characterize as “Points of Destiny,” and therefore correlating the nodes with both our individual and collective growth. Solar Eclipses, in particular, provide opportunities for transformation — the ending of an old cycle and the beginning of a new one. At an Eclipse, you can initiate a profound period of regeneration by aligning with your destiny and embracing any necessary changes that arise.

The darkening that occurs during an Eclipse has symbolically and historically been linked to the unveiling of something deeply hidden, an ominous secret, or the potential revelation of a great mystery.

Because Eclipses can be harbingers of great transformation and change they often coincide with unexpected earth events, stock market fluctuations, and political upheavals. On a personal note, emotions can become intense if they’ve been denied or repressed. New and important experiences or people can suddenly come into your life, and simultaneously, others may be removed. In general, changes are prevalent during Eclipses, so try to remain flexible and try not to judge anything that occurs as good or bad.

The ancient sages felt that the days just before and after 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.

The Sun–Moon Lunation Cycle

The Sun–Moon Lunation Cycle

      Both the Sun and the Moon infuse our day-to-day world with potent energies. If you follow the ongoing trajectory of these two planets, you already know this.(1) However, for some of us (myself included), it often helps to have a consistent astrological reminder for the occurrence of New and Full Moon lunations — what their symbolic astrological significations are — and how we can consciously apply this language to our individual and collective lives.(2) 

     Although every lunation is symbolically powerful, eclipses are especially so! In the mundane astrological world of countries, politics, etc., these super–intense eclipse lunations can be disruptive to stock markets, political agendas, and cause unexpected earth events.

     Individually, if we follow the celestial dance between the Sun and Moon, we can know when and how to intentionally embark on important creative prospects and align with our soul’s evolutionary intent —  our destiny.

Following is a brief description of all eight (waxing and waning) lunar phases. Please note that each one of these phases also relate to the lunar cycle that you were born under:

  • New Moon: This is the first phase of the lunar cycle and is generally an auspicious time to begin something new. Imbue your psyche with positive ideas, begin new projects, start new relationships, initiate new ways to be free and independent.
  • Waxing Crescent: During this period, you will want to continue to integrate the New Moon energies into your life. Give all your attention to nurturing the dreams that you began under the New Moon phase.
  • First Quarter: The focus now is for self-renewal, self-love, and self-confidence. Attend to your own needs and practice self-care.
  • Waxing Gibbous: A great time to continue with your creative ideas and initiate new artistic interests. Focus on being true to yourself. Relish in your unique authentic expression.
  • Full Moon: Refine your hopes, wishes, dreams, and desires. Focus on attracting love, friendship, and prosperity. Practice gratitude for all you currently have and celebrate your life.
  • Waning Gibbous: Use this time to attune to the needs of others. Altruism and philanthropic endeavors flourish now.
  • Last Quarter: Place your attention on your inner world: go within, meditate, journal, pay attention to your dreams — tap into your inner power!
  • Waning Crescent: Hidden secrets and knowledge are revealed. Past life memories and prophetic visions can arise.

Saturn in Pisces: Letting Go

Saturn in Pisces: Letting Go

March 7, 2023 — February 13, 2026*

The beautiful journey of today can only begin when
we learn to let go of yesterday. 
― Steve Maraboli

Saturn is often referred to as “The Lord of Karma” or “The Great Malefic” and even “The Task Master,” all of which can provoke feelings of pessimism, fear, and negativity. Rarely are Saturn’s countless hidden gifts, which I’ll be covering below, emphasized upon first contemplating this great planet’s Astrological significations.

During Saturn’s transit into and through Pisces, we will witness the final dissolution (Pisces) of outmoded structures (Saturn). This will occur in both our personal and collective lives. Signifying the aging process, one of Saturn’s most important significations is the ability to continually evaluate and revitalize the constructs, laws, rules, and concepts that regulate our inner and outer worlds.

Saturn represents authority, maturity, social-political systems, and ethical conduct, as well as the awareness of time and karma. He is the harbinger of the blatant recognition that our long-standing way of life is no longer serving us. With Saturn’s ingress into Pisces, we will each find ourselves seeking to restructure areas of our lives reflected by the zodiacal sign of Pisces.

Saturn is uncomfortable in this mutable sign of fluidity and changeability. In general, both the planet (Saturn) and the sign (Pisces) represent very different ideals and goals. Saturn wants to control, isolate, and contain. Pisces wants to flow, prefers connection, and loathes boundaries. Saturn can become fearful within the unknown and Pisces thrives within the mysterious. As you may have guessed, this combination can be unsettling.

In the sign of Pisces, restructuring can reflect ideals that signify our greatest dreams of a healthy whole and connected world. Or on the other hand, zealous ideals can impose greater controls and isolation. Hence, it will be important during this period for each of us to align, connect, and hold visions for ourselves and the world with the utmost Saturnian integrity.

As the final sign of the zodiac, Pisces is associated with the culmination and a complete letting go of an entire evolutionary cycle. At this final stage, Pisces longs to connect to the mystical and sacred. Albeit less tangible, a devotional practice that brings us closer to the divine essence of our true nature will bring the greatest meaning (Pisces) to our material (Saturn) lives. Therefore, with Saturn in Pisces, you could say that we’re all being called to develop disciplined spiritual muscles.

From an individual perspective, this timeframe will encourage you to question authority and ask yourself if you’ve given yours away unconsciously? If yes, now’s the time to take responsibility and reclaim it (Saturn). If your intention is strong but you’re unsure how to proceed, rely on trust and faith to divinely guide you (Pisces).

Below are examples of a few balanced/imbalanced expressions of Saturn’s influence while in the sign of Pisces:

  • trusting in the natural cycles of life / change will result in failure and loss of control
  • feeling deeply connected to the wholeness of life despite ambiguity / the unknown will leave me disconnected and confused
  • striving to elevate and unite the whole / intolerance that weakens, alienates, and divides
  • moral and ethical use of intelligent influence towards a timeless ideal / seeking to align with an ideal (what’s the truth?) for self-serving gratification
  • facing what needs to be done right now and taking action / denial, lack of action, overwhelm
  • rational and compassionate conduct / irrational self-serving behavior
  • trusting that everything is in divine order / disconnected to a higher-guiding influence, trying to control everything through my own effort

During this Saturn in Pisces period, we may find relationships ending or being reorganized. With Piscean overtones, letting go can be very difficult. Although we may experience resistance to such events, it behooves us to remember that Saturn is always acting in our best interest and only those people and things that are no longer beneficial to our lives will be removed.

Mindful awareness is required at the onset of a significant Saturn transit, and we are encouraged to use integrity in all our dealings throughout its duration. The Saturnian journey often leads us into solemn periods of reflection where we may find ourselves feeling dejected or disillusioned. We may also feel thwarted in our efforts to move into the future we desire because Saturn rejects any attempt that is not in alignment with our highest purpose.

Make the most of this period by setting your sights on a path with intentional and attainable goals. This is especially true for Pisces Sun signs because Saturn will transit directly over your Sun. Additionally, for those of you who are between the ages of 28–31 or 56–59 you will be experiencing your Saturn Return, a major maturation and turning point in your life.

Saturnian transits and aspects bring us
 to a crossroads and provide opportunities to hasten our evolution. They usher in a profound time, that if embraced, can bring great wisdom and a deeper meaning to our lives. Awareness of self, maturation, humility, and freedom — by releasing that which no longer serves us —are all characteristic of Saturn’s influence.

*  Saturn will move into Aries for three months in 2025 (May 25 until August 31). On September 1, 2025, Saturn will move back into the sign of Pisces until February 12, 2026. It will then begin its entire journey through Aries (February 13 to April of 2028).
