Lunar Eclipse - Gemini - December 21

The Total Lunar Eclipse less than a day before the Winter Solstice will likely have a dramatic impact on everyone.  Individuals born in the late degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces will notice the affects the most.

This Lunar Eclipse in Gemini is the lead-in to the Capricorn Solar Eclipse in January, giving us a heads up about issues we need to address.  Yet many will feel too confused by the message to know what to do with it.  As Rose Lineman explains in "Eclipse Interpretation Manual," the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn, after a Lunar Eclipse in Gemini can be difficult because of the sense of practicality the Capricorn New Moon encourages us to focus on. We tend to be emotionally frivolous when the Lunar Eclipse is in Gemini, and the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is likely to shake us with "reality shockwaves" if we have been too silly with our decisions during the Lunar Eclipse influence. The Anaretic Degree of the Full Moon in Gemini acting as a singleton in the northern hemisphere, the T-square with Jupiter and Uranus in Pisces, along with the Moon and Mars transits Out of Bounds (OOB) are all stressful aspects during this eclipse. The Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius certainly is not helping us, either. At Lunar Living ( the December 21 Lunar Eclipse article helps explain some of the ways to deal with the energies so that the New Year should feel less demanding and more fulfilling.

Sagittarius New Moon - December 5, 2010

The Sagittarius New Moon is the precursor to the Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse December 21, 2010. The New Moon should have a calming quality, for the most part. Of course, with Mars and Mercury still transiting Out of Bounds, and now the Moon will also be OOB for a few days, we could easily get caught off guard. Yet, that seems to be the nature of the Out of Bounds transits.  We can minimize some of that by being prepared. Additionally, Mercury's retrograde motion starting on December 10 will likely make a fine smear of a mess on the Christmas holiday. Those individuals who do their shopping, preparation and travel arrangements early in the month, will be the least impacted. But for many, that early preparation takes all the fun and adventure out of the event. Be that as it may, this holiday season is likely to be a lot like the 2003 Christmas Mercury Retrograde. If you remember that one, you will want to plan your events to NOT have a repeat of that. Read more about this New Moon's aspects at
