2019 is beginning with a bang thanks to a partial solar eclipse in Capricorn. This is the first in a series of eclipses along the Capricorn-Cancer axis, which means karmic lessons and opportunities for growth will be occurring in these signs in your chart over the next year and a half. In general, eclipses are wildcards, so no one can tell you exactly what they will bring. It’s best to just let go and keep the faith that everything is working out for your highest good.
This particular eclipse is a solar one, which can be likened to a supercharged New Moon. This means we can harness its powerful energy to manifest what we want for 2019. Conjunct Saturn in its domicile of Capricorn, it has an especially Saturnian flair. It’s time to get as grounded and realistic as possible. Examine the existing structures of your life and consider what needs to change. Where do you need to take more responsibility? What needs more of your attention and effort? Capricorn emphasizes goals, achievements, finances, career, justice, order, and authority. Its key phrase is “I use,” so consider what resources are available to you and use them wisely. Be deliberate with your thoughts and actions, for whatever seed you plant now will continue to grow over the next several months.
With a sextile to Neptune, this eclipse also signifies the need to focus on our spiritual callings. Capricorn’s ambition can do a lot of good for the world, but when it loses sight of its higher purpose, it succumbs to superficial definitions of success. You need to decide what success looks like for you and you alone. How can you make a positive difference in the lives of others? What gifts can you share with the world? Where are you being called to serve? The combination of Neptune and Capricorn is great for aligning with your purpose and making your dreams a reality. Tap into the wisdom of great spiritual teachers and leaders for insight and inspiration. Develop and maintain a strong spiritual practice by tending it daily. This will be your source of strength as you trek up the mountain. Reading by @bodyandsoulsustenance
