Partial Solar Eclipse January 2011

Partial Solar Eclipse


New Moon in Capricorn

(Archived for Capricorn for their Eclipses)

On January 4, 2011, we will have a partial solar eclipse of the sun at 3:50 am eastern time and 12:50am Pacific Standard time.   It will also embark a new moon in Capricorn at 4:02 am EST, and 1:02 PST. Unfortunately, unlike the lunar eclipse December 21, 2010, this eclipse will only be visible in European countries, North Africa and Central Asia.

According to the ancient translations the word January is adopted by the Romans to signify the God Janus who had two features which signified beginnings and endings and the past and the future. This is very welcomed during the eclipse energy to set the stage to let go of the old and welcome the new.

The eclipse is in the 13 degree of Capricorn, so people with Capricorn as well Cardinal signs (Libra, Aries, Cancer and Capricorn) including those that have Capricorn in their chart will be featured in their birth charts are more likely to be affected. Under this eclipse, people will want to turn their feelings into objective experiences. Before anything else there has to be action or some form of instant physical gratification before mental satisfaction.

Solar energy is peripheral, protective, shielding, and vigorous – and reflected and expressed from within our life force.  This eclipse provides us the energy to look at how we are using our possessions and resources and how these possessions or resources affect how we handle our every day lives. But more over, it also gives us energy to come up with a plan to entrust how we live daily. This eclipse will also allow us to look at our life to see where our plans are and to question its sustainability whether they are idealistic to serve everyone around or does it need to be re-mapped.

Eclipses always focus on change and it is mostly in the physical world manifested through our spiritual world.  Solar eclipse with a new moon forces us to start something new, to commit our selves to make plans.  It also allows us to be selective of events which come through preparation, decisions, exertion, to take ourselves to a higher plane. But our anxieties will be at its highest because the pressure of change will be on a crisis mode.

This eclipse will be very demanding for many people it is about new instruction and questioning what we are learning. This eclipse will bring rigid efforts, which will encompass responsibility, control and obligations.  It also energizes respect of others and to find balance and fairness in areas of relationships.  Many will be tested in the functionality of relationships, acknowledging their own faults and the attitudes which may have brought chaos, confusion and uneasiness in their lives.

Think back to July 11, 1991 and also January 4, 1992….the solar eclipse was at the same degree, what happened to you? What did you learn? How did it affect your life? What was being revealed what duties were going to have what were you going to give up or had to give up? What were your priorities and what was love? If you can’t remember that far back than similar energies were felt on July 7, 2009.  What were you thinking of leaving?

I can recall 1991 eclipse like it was yesterday. I had moved back from California to Florida and months later I found out I was pregnant and I went into premature labor with my first son on July 11, 1991 only to discover he did not want to come into this world until much later. In January 1992, we decided to move back to California to seek a fresh beginning. Being broke and unhappy thinking things would change which they did not only forced me to move back to Florida in November 1992 and found out I was pregnant again with my second soon who was born the following year. July 2009, my oldest son had announced he was leaving for college hundreds of miles away and trying to juggle my love life and my children seem impossible and I knew something had to give.  What I gave up hurt but what I gained was irreplaceable which was the truth which is blood is always thicker than water and family should always come number 1.

For me it was about children, new home, leaving the old brining a new life and finding out what is real and what is not.  Having said that perhaps you may want to consider are you leaving one life over the other? Are you plan on making grand changes to your life in 2011? Do you like what you are doing or where you are going or do you want to be doing exactly what you are doing months from now? Are the things you want in your life a fantasy or reality? I can tell you all I wanted was children and husband in the 90’s along with a white picket fence and over looking the ocean but I never looked at responsibilities and duties that follow the utopian family.  Who are you with is it real-Or a fantasy of a perfect person? Where do you want to go? Do you have enough resources to make it happen? What kind of job do you want? Is it something you can really do or wish to do? These are the very depths of the eclipse which will force you to reconsider these things.

But it perhaps the eclipse it has nothing to do with a child but it may even have to do with your job, home or family what ever it may be, but it is guaranteed to make some remarkable changes in a person’s life.  The most intensities will be magnified for those who have a birthday that falls on January 4 & 18, February 2, March 4, April 3 & 18, May 4, June 4, July 5 & 21, August 6, September 6, October 6 & 22, November 6, and December 5, this will be the most impacted eclipse of your life. Even though those people with birth date listed above will feel intense energy of the eclipse, it will also impact those 5 days before the dates listed above and 5 days after. Nevertheless cardinal signs will feel the intensity across the board no matter what dates are.

Even though the exact degree of the eclipse occurred in 1991 and 1992, there were some reactivating energy of what is to occur in our lives as it did 1990 through 1992 and 2000 to 2002.  This eclipse also touches the heart of cardinal eclipses that was activated last summer (July 7, 2009).  It questions our public and private lives, between feminism and masculine, father and mother and between responsibility and sense of belonging.

Though this eclipse is geared towards the cardinal signs, the fixed signs (Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, and Taurus) will not be out the segment of the solar eclipse.  They too will be questioning their responsibilities against their freedom. This may cause many to tap on to their taboos of life to question their abilities of whom they are and what they are becoming. This could ultimately bring them great happiness, prosperity, assistance and bring into their lives people which could influence them to soar in their life in a different direction.  For fixed signs it will be gift of the energy of the celestial transformation that will help them appreciate the lessons that the eclipse has brought them.

The eclipse will surely bring intense energy and tension to question what is real and what is not as well as sacrifices of love, and relationships and those things that are valued.  It will bring consciousness of principles and the way we relate to the world around us to question our selves as to the honesty that we are putting into our selves.  To also question if we are being dishonest without our selves are we also being dishonest to others and how can we expect trust when we are not able to trust ourselves. Through this realization the experiences of past pain and introspection we will be given understanding forgiveness and healing.  There will be a reason why old relationships that are not beneficial will die.  If any relationship is toxic or not mature it will die also and the eclipse will give you the truth even if it hurts.

This 6-month period there is going to be unsettled energies.  However, for many it could even mean 3 to 3 & ½ years before any of this will come to fruitfulness. Its a time to focus on making peace, taking accountability and responsibilities of our own actions and knowing what is real and what is transparent. But it does not have to be all bad.  It can also mean new projects, new job, new experiences… anything that begins with the word “new” which represents the New moon and solar energy that bring light into our world.

Few days prior to the New Moon, known as the DARK MOON, energies are at their lowest ebb, in grounding for the new cycle to begin. Each New Moon signifies the opportunity to begin a new cycle in your life. Depending on the elemental quality of the sign in which the New Moon falls, energies on variable levels are heightened, be they spiritual, physical, mental or emotional.  The modality of the sign determines whether the emphasis is on conclusiveness, power or adaptability. This solar eclipse will bring out portions of healing, compassion, emotions, expressed needs, subconscious and reserve or quite side of you.


The Earthy New Moon brings a time of brightness and growing. It is a stage of individual completion, but also a time to investigate for the deeper meaning in what you’ve created. How can you assimilate your apparition into the world for the greater good of all? The New Moon signals a time of manifestation. There is an impulse to take accomplishment and begin something new, be it a small change in the way you approach your daily habits or a whole new path on your journey through life. The energy is right for making spontaneous moves and following your instincts. This is the time to act from your spirit and faith the process – take danger by the hand and feel the truth and not being afraid that it will go bad or go good.. What do you want to create in your life? What vision do you wish to manifest? The new begins a new cycle.  It is the seed of the beginning lunar cycle.

The New Moon is an asking (invocative) time, and a time to prepare what our needs are according to the opportunities available through this moon in Capricorn. The moon urges you to distinguish and respect the significance of the “other” – other people, other ideas, and other values. Relationships are of great importance at this time, and you feel a need to allocate, to combine, to partner, whether lovingly or through other channels. You are called upon now to work toward achieving balance – balance of your inner nature and outer personality, balance of your need to take with your ability to offer; stability of your ultimate ideals with what is possible in the world Capricorn Moon sets us straight up the mountainside toward our highest goals.

Dig in those hooves and get climbing! Reputation, success, go,go,go….. You can undertake anything. Love seriously, too. This is the time to produce, plead and be grateful, and to work on fruitfulness and success.   The energy will give highly prejudiced traits. There is a need to attempt to achieve and accomplish personal plans and ideals. There is a tendency tend to react impulsively and emotionally.

The Solar Eclipse energy forces modesty and self-respect in all things – thus there may be a tendency to hide emotions. Where as, emotional situations may become more serious, weighing the outcome of the words and actions. Some may prefer to be with people who are regimented and accurate.  The energy gives purpose, reasonableness and guidance.  This energy will also encompass the concepts of nature versus nurture.  Perhaps nurture may be chosen rather than nature by acknowledgement, achievements, encouraging them to persevere. This energy is feminine thus mother figure or a mother will be a disciplinary and respect will be forthcoming through order.

Because the moon in Capricorn produces energy which are realistic, self-discipline, vigilant, reserve, determined, reliability, determined, systematic practical, and Capricious, and its effects are heightened as a Solar eclipse, you may choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle.

Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the preferred result is depended upon the eminence of purpose, and when it comes to finding a fulfilling relationships and accomplishment, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a apparent understanding of what the aim should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy the mantra for Capricorn moon is:

Om Sri Shanaishwarya Namaha

(OM Sri Shan aish shwarya Namaha)

Solar Eclipse is:

“ Om Surya Namaha”

( Om Sur-ya Namaha)

Remember the 12 aspirations.  The intention of this mantra is to guard and protect and fulfill needs. It is my suggestion that you purchase a green candle and recite psalm 117 if you find the mantras too difficult.  Make sure you take the time to write down 10 aspirations and recite them every day and word them to say I can have…

Additionally please make a note that I am not an Astrologer nor do I claim to be.  The Vedic readings encompasses the energy of the environment, sun signs, moon signs and allows application which creates a pathway of choice.  Vedic reading always allows two different path one that is destined for you on a physical world and the one that you change.  Destiny is NOT written in pen rather a pencil with a larger eraser.  You choose the path of your own destiny.  And always keeping in mind that in this life there is no real yes or no’s because we don’t live in a vacuum.  There is also no perfect timing since time is universal created by humans to serve the purpose for a human not the universe as a whole.  For every action there will always be a reaction.  The reaction of our own deeds and action will either solidify or diminish our needs and wants through the process of understanding and embracing.

Always remember for the most accurate forecast of how the solar eclipse will affect you or even to get a glimpse of 2011 I would suggest you consult with my recommended astrologers such as Lee Stillwaters, Leslie Hale or Rex Estelle or you may choose an astrologer of your choice on my useful link page.

Also take into consideration not to make any permanent decisions and give your self extra time to travel and be careful not to be in a hurry because mercury is moving to its station and will not be direct completely until January 11, 2011 more so the relief will come on the 18th of January 2011. Read more about this period here.

Please note that starting January 04, 2011, after 8am EST, I will be accepting reduced price reading appointments. This will cover aeas of complex destiny, changeable destiny, Karmic pressure as well as spiritual impulsive lessons. This type of reading is only recommended for returning clients. I suggest that if you are a new client that you first have reading done on a topic and if it is a style that you can adapt to than set up an appointment to have a reading done by me. I will also be reducing my price for those who set up appointments with me or set up prior time to have a personal reading.

Please remember that there is a another Solar Eclipse on June 1, 2011, which will once again effect Mutual Signs which closes out once phase and open doors to new.  The Solar Eclipse on June 1, 2011, will question the eclipse of December 21, 2009, if you have closed chapters and learned the lessons of the eclipse energy.  Always have journal around for things that happen negative and positive so that you can understand the energy of the future.  Since everything in this world makes a circle to question and to see if you passed the test without egotistical motives through the test of the eclipse and celestial energies we are able to understand what the intentions are of the universe of us, since we are creatures of habit and habits are meant to be broken through change, acceptance, understanding, compassion, forgiveness, and love.

Wishing you a great 2011, and may the solar energies bring you blessings and love always….
