Last Total Solar Eclipse December 2021
Total Solar Eclipse: Sagittarius/Scorpio
New Moon in Sagittarius
December 04, 2021
Some of you may have been surprised that this post was late with all the crazy energy dancing around me. One minute I was geared up to write this blog, the next minute, it seemed I was not getting anywhere. But hopefully, I can bring some enlightenment that others have not shared and bring a little breath of fresh air. No matter what happens or how this blog is read, the remarkable passage of time will be all to endure together.
Thanksgiving opened our eyes to our second lunar eclipse. But our eyes are once again closed for the next 6 months. This journey began on December 4, 2021, with our 2nd Total solar eclipse in Sagittarius. Though some may say that only Sagittarius’ and those with Sagittarius in their charts will be affected; I say it’s much more complex. The most significant impact will be for Scorpios too, when four planets danced around Scorpio, according to Vedic Philosophies. However, everyone was a hostage in the energy of the solar eclipse.
I am confident that those with their primary planets in Scorpio, Taurus, and Sagittarius may have felt a certain sense of drag. Perhaps stagnant energy or uncertainties regarding their career or their place of employment. As for Taurus, it was all about two things they love the most, money and relationships, which may be going through or will go through difficulties. Virgo, Leo, and Cancers may seem to be going through a lot too, where self-reflection could be their central theme for the next 6 months. Because they are lucky, as new beginnings are possible for them, a little caution must be practiced as unexpected health issues are potential areas of worry.
All eclipses come in pairs, and this total solar eclipse is the paring of the Lunar eclipse in May 2021, which was in Scorpio and Sagittarius. Thus, this total solar eclipse has a similar aspect, read more about it here. However, this is not the first time this type of energy has entered our solar system or even our world. On December 04, 2002, the total solar eclipse was the same degree, date, and time as December 04, 2021. The pattern is evident that once again, history is repeating. I have always talked about history repeating, and I will elaborate on this a little later in this article.
The total solar eclipse in Sagittarius/Scorpio was not visible for those in the Northern Americas. Though the total solar eclipse was not visible here, people who may have been able to view the partial eclipse would have had to reside near the Indian and Pacific oceans, southern Atlantic Ocean, South Australia, or Africa. Eclipse began its movement eastwards at approximately 9:29pm PST on December 03 and 12:29am December 04 EST time. Perhaps this is a good sign as eclipse always brings adverse inferences to the societies in its pathway.
Though some would say that the solar eclipse with the new moon brings positivity with complete fresh starts, let’s begin with why this may not be as true. First, I recommend reading about how the new and full moons affect humanity here. Secondly, the series of eclipses that reflected on history or repeated scenarios began its journey on December 04, 2002 and could be the trigger. However, this is so long ago that many may not remember. Finally, it is essential to understand that Sagittarius focuses on the truth, law, and justice. In contrast, Scorpio is all about hidden secrets, death, and rebirth.
Perhaps events parallel to the ones on December 04, 2002, are very similar to those from the eclipse of November 25, 2011 (read more about here) and December 14, 2020 (read more about here). These events primarily focused on political events for the US and states, though some may have been international.
We must ask ourselves first, how does history repeat itself and why? There are several factors that scholars and philosophers have predicted. One is on the premise that lessons to be learned by humanity in the first testing period were never realized. The other hypothesis is based on lessons learned; where the universe tests humanity to see if similar situations occur again, how will they be handled this time? Whatever the case, maybe it is a test of time.
Let’s rewind to 2011. In 2008, an economic crisis impacted almost every state and internationally until 2011. As a result, many nations were trying to figure out how to boost the economy and lower the deficit. Still, the headline news was the Penn State Sex Scandal (Scorpio=sex and secrets). But positive news was the Iraq War finally ended. Read about this eclipse here.
Fast forward to December 14, 2020, after 400,000 deaths, the COVID-19 vaccination is approved for use. Tensions flare back up between Iran and the United States. Brush fires burn millions of acres of land in California, Colorado, Oregon, and Australia. At the same time, high temperatures in Antarctica woke up many to global warming (Sagittarius= fire and warmth). Furthermore, the pandemic set the international economy into the nastiest recession ever. Finally, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is charged with sexual harassment. Read more about this eclipse here.
December 4, 2021 will begin a new cycle. Black Friday is behind us. Though the economy is supposed to bounce back up, the results are still not in. Therefore, an economic boost may take a while as the entire world’s economy is at risk. Additionally, both New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s probe and Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial began at the end of November. Perhaps now the secrets are uncovered? But, as Sagittarius wants justice and Scorpio is about sex and secrets, our eyes may still be closed a bit.
The impacts of this eclipse are usually felt as early as 5 days before (November 29, 2021). Everyone will feel the uneasiness of the eclipse’s energy, and those in the mix that I have not elaborated on are also Libra and Aries.
Every eclipse is relationship favored, whether romantic, family, business, or associates, it has no bearing. Some could see their relationship deteriorate because of hidden secrets and fairness. Others could take it to the next level because of loyalty and physical or sexual attraction. This is primarily because we are still blinded by the Solar eclipse and cannot see in the darkness. It is a good possibility that we won’t see well for another 6 months. Therefore, it is essential not to make any concrete plans, and perhaps you might want to wait just to be fair as Sagittarius wants to make sure of what they are getting themselves into.
Then again, I also would not be surprised if old issues and old flames are not resolved or have a closure which could take the romance out of the relationship. Alternatively, perhaps an old relationship comes back into your life right around the new year as Mercury retrograde will enter the ghost period on the 2nd of January 2022.
Mercury is a slow-moving planet, and it begins its transit through Capricorn, moving to retrograde stationed in Aquarius, and finally moves back in the middle of February 2022. But it’s not just about Capricorn and Aquarius. It will affect those with any houses of astrology in Capricorn and Aquarius, and those who work in Capricorn or Aquarius and in areas such as science, medical fields, computer engineering, judges, and social workers. I don’t know if you see the trend here. A simple hint of infectious disease.
In ancient times, the eclipses were considered omens, causing difficulties during the time of the eclipses, and 6 months after in areas similar now as they were then. Because of the eclipse coming primarily in Sagittarius, I would not be surprised if winter comes late for those in the North and early for those in the South. Furthermore, Sagittarius’ can have tempers too; therefore, significant storms are possible in the winter or early spring, and once again, perhaps the spring will be later in 2022.
On the other hand, the eclipses do not have to be unfavorable. Eclipses can bring new social status by taking an inventory of actions, reactions, ethics, and morals. Weeding out all that no longer serves a purpose and things that no longer work. It’s time to cultivate change, adapt, learn something new, expand intellectual information by embracing those that gravitate toward wisdom and expertise in your field or things you want to know.
Bring spirituality, humility, and pureness back into your life, and remember, it is not what you have because you can’t take it with you; it’s what you have done to make a difference in someone’s life. If you work hard without expectation or gratitude, you will be rewarded. If your work is purely the basis of material gains and with little or no respect for your environment, this will also be highlighted.
One critical aspect of the eclipse energy mix will be the full moon in Gemini/Taurus. Gemini loves to talk, while Taurus focuses on love, money, and luxury, and the two together want to impress. With the mix of Sagittarius’s socializing skills and Gemini’s talkativeness, do not be surprised that people try to uncover your secrets, and there may be resistance. This may be intense because of the full moon on December 19, 2021.
Furthermore, there is no need to keep harboring the same issues. Most of all, don’t give your opinion unless asked for it because as much as you may want peace or quick solutions, it may be swept under the rug, and that would not be respectful. On the other hand, the total moon/solar eclipse could cause the urge to be super friendly in communication. There could even be some gravitational pull to want to talk to wise souls such as the elderly by nature or elderly by wisdom. Whichever, it will someone you can trust, and that is respected.
Almost every month, I intertwine Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theoretical analysis of those impacted by the eclipse and how. The predictions are not based on Astrology, rather a combination of numerological, mathematical, and Vedic philosophical inferences.
Though the predictions may seem labeled in astrological terms, these terms are character placeholders within the month of the new moon. They are not precisely determined to premise that the persistent predictions are accurate to specific characteristics; instead, they are general tendencies to possibilities and warnings.
I recommend getting an accurate prediction in your specific characteristics, combining both the lunar eclipse predictions (read more here) and the solar eclipse, and making your own self-determination.
The predictions will be in chronological order based upon the characteristics (astrological sign) which will be most impacted for the next 6 months.
For Sagittarius/Scorpio, western astrology will determine that the paired eclipses are complete on December 04, 2021, and will not return until 2030. However, in VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories), it is due to hit one more time in the spring of 2022. Therefore, be mindful of which theory best suits your lifestyle as combining or looking at one and then the other can cause confusion and negative thinking.
Since this eclipse is in Sagittarius and Scorpio and the Full moon is in Taurus/Gemini, and my last lunar blog was in July, I will be expanding on Sagittarius/Scorpio/Gemini. Taurus can find their last eclipse predictions here. This is a 6-month general prediction, not an individual prediction, and I highly recommend a 6-month reading on yourself. More information can be found here.
During the eclipse energy (6 months), you tend to spend more than you have; being lethargic or extremely sleepy may be a sign or something, but too much sleep is not suitable for the soul. Be careful with travel and people taking advantage of you. Even though this year is an entirely different species than the previous years, the best is yet to come. Soon you will notice that your hard work will not go unnoticed, and perhaps some recognition with some rewards may be attached. Your humor and charm will now turn the eye of many. You may decide to buy some new things, and your finances look awesome but try to curb your spending before the next eclipse. Be careful as Mercury retrograde will be here sooner than you think, and it may stir trouble your way.
Ketu: Travel, Unexpected expenses, and Learning.
Saturn: Monetary gains, opportunities, and favorable family alliances.
Rahu: Legal issues in your favor and business travel.
Chiron: Adventure and a secret love affair.
Uranus: Worries regarding responsibilities, i.e., health, other people, and pets.
Jupiter: Difficulties in achieving deadlines. Travel, friendships, and appreciation.
Your hard work will pay off, but you can’t sit and expect money to trickle down. Money matters need your attention and there will be plenty of expenses, so spend wisely. It is important to maintain good health as changing weather patterns may make you sick. Be very faithful to your partner; he or she will need you and it will build a strong bond if you stick around. Be mindful of being transparent in all areas of your life and control your temper across your life otherwise it will come and bite you. It’s best to use exercise as an outlet for frustrations rather than saying something you do not mean.
With all the planets in Scorpio from December 4th through 14th, your confidence level is at its lowest and you may not be as productive as you may have been before. With Ketu in your sign this year, everything good or bad has been about Karma. But Ketu is also about education and higher education. Perhaps you may have been extra tired or restless. On the other hand, you may have decided to get engaged or possibly finish your studies. Whatever the case may be, I highly suggest you wait out this period as your eyes will reopen in May 2022, Oct 2022, and 2023. It is all fuzzy right now for you.
Saturn: Family support, exercise routines and difficulties with friends.
Ketu: Laziness and inability to focus.
Rahu: Deception, indecisiveness, new projects, leadership, or position.
Chiron: The past will be forgotten with a beauty of love.
Uranus: Unexpected twists and turns in romantic relationships.
Jupiter: Family and motherly bonds will get closer.
From the end of the year until your eclipse in May, there will plenty of focus therefore, you will have no worries that deadlines won’t be met. Getting too many opinions from others will backfire; trust yourself but you also have difficulties in trusting relationships. Anger, resentment, and sadness will weaken you and your health. Try not to emotionally eat and it’s better to be polite for right now. Bitterness will not help. As your income is not meeting your expenses, it’s better to think about money rather than love right now as love is here and it will stay.
No matter what people say, you do have a temper and there is a possibility that the first two weeks of December you are not in your best character. This could resonate from home to office and therefore you want quick fixes. This is not about quick fixes. Because you are so involved in your anger you may miss opportunities. There will also be the possibility of getting involved in gossip, but you should avoid this as it could cause work related issues. Money will come but it will trickle until the spring.
Saturn: Learning, travel, and hard work.
Ketu: Learning, exercise, and health cures.
Rahu: High spending on useless items, family issues, and travel.
Chiron: Re-forming friendships or letting go.
Uranus: Issues of limits by others and your mind is disturbed.
Jupiter: Spiritual retreat travel, new business connections, and a good reputation is possible.
From now until the end of the year there is plenty of restless energy. It is important to maintain a cool head right now as you may regret what you said to someone who may become ill very quickly. The possibility exists of women (mother, sister, daughter etc.) in your life getting ill and you must be vigilant and stand by them. You had a great two years now it’s time to buckle down as the universe has provided you almost everything you wanted; it is time now for sacrifices.
The following predictions are best combined with the Lunar eclipse (read more about it here). In addition, Taurus has an extended forecast that can be found (here). The below projections are based upon severity impacted by the astrological (characters).
Aries and Leo
Leo: Issues with material property are possible. Worries of a female family member could also worry you. Keep cool with your work don’t take on too much. Minor details could affect your productivity.
Aries: Health issues and travel can be problematic. Be cautious with your daily and work-related tasks as minor accidents could occur.
Pisces and Cancer
Pisces: The lack of appreciation, gratitude, and honor in your work or productivity are the cause of your depression. Travel is not a good idea right now.
Cancer: A lack of focus and relationship issues, especially with partnership or marriages.
Aquarius & Libra
Aquarius: Concerns over a male relative and disrespect at the workplace, or you may even quit. Be cautious with investments or on projects as they may not turn out to be as favorable as if you were to wait until spring/summer of 2022.
Libra: Financial losses are possible. Money or profits may not be as good as expected, and arguments with family members are possible.
Capricorn and Virgo
Capricorn: Finally, wishes come true but new and old friendships fizzle away. Decreased income may be possible.
Virgo: A lack of confidence, but with patience you will complete your projects. Be mindful of your communication with colleagues and supervisors.
The predictions above were based on general VPAT predictions and not exact to anyone. Therefore, it is advisable to have a 6-month reading done on yourself or speak to an astrologer of your choice to see how they play out in your life.
Since the moon in Sagittarius is straightforward, explicit energetic, assertive, and sensible, we must remain objective. Therefore, I suggest that you purchase an orange candle and carve your name through to the wick.
Anoint the candle with sandalwood or Lavender oil and chant Psalm 17. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras, achieving the desired result depends upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying interactions, it is most important to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be.
Sanskrit mantras can be difficult to pronounce, but they are a powerful energy source of sounds through the creator and us. For the Solar Eclipse, it is suggested that the mantra of Surya be chanted every morning and every night for the entire transit (6 months)
Om Surya Namaha
During this solar eclipse, I will be doing 6-month in-depth readings to prepare us for the finale at the beginning of May for Sagittarius and a new chapter for Scorpio.
Being a Vedic reader does not make me an Astrologer. Vedic reading is focused on transformational changes that are embarked upon by actions and reactions. One ounce of prevention brings solace in the understanding of the future.
I will be accepting appointments for in-depth readings starting December 13, 2021 (read about what entail and my available appointments here).
Please contact me prior to making an appointment so I can ensure the slot for your appointment is available.
Wishing you the best of the transitions through these eclipses.
