Gemini-Sagittarius Eclipses: Fresh Perceptions, Leaps & Bounds

by | Dec 9, 2011 | Gemini, Sagittarius | 2 comments

It was December 2010 and my Gemini client exclaimed, ““Oh nooooo. The eclipses are coming – in my sign!” After barely surviving the Cancer/Capricorn cycle myself, I understood her foreboding. Eclipses are associated with uncertainty and the unexpected; they often mark turning points & crisis, evolutionary leaps and bounds made without the known safety net of the familiar.

Geminis and Sag’s: the Universe has wanted you to move forward. If you are either Sun Sign, this two-year period has initiated (or begun to initiate) monumental life changes. One Gemini girlfriend is about to have her first baby; my Gemini stepdaughter, Sarah, just got her learner’s permit yesterday, hurrah! A Sagittarius friend is quitting her previous job as a professor so she can move into expansive new career directions, and a friend with a Gemini Venus is celebrating a romantic victory. Eclipses bring breakthrough energy into our lives, and kinder eclipses like these proves not all growth has to be painful. I’m so happy for those of you who are on the brink of change!

This eclipse set, yoking Thanksgiving Day’s Sag Eclipse to the Gem eclipse of 12/10/11, has generally brought more positive developments than not due to few challenging planetary aspects. The energetic, “breath of fresh air” enthusiasms and heart revivals we’re experiencing is also due in no small part to last weekend’s conjunction of (retrograde) Mercury with the Sun -an aspect which traditional astrology calls ‘cazimi’ an Arabic word meaning ‘heart of the Sun’ (love that phrase) -and- the recent North Node and Sun in Sagittarius conjunction. Uranus at 1 Aries moves forward tonight, a not so quiet player in tomorrow’s eclipse, bringing forward any innovative ideas (& necessary upheavals) to the area of our life Uranus transits.

Personally, while this particular set falls in my 2nd/8th and 3rd/9th, only mildly touching a planet (Gemini eclipse sextile my Seventh House Aries Moon), I’m noticing that my attention and energy doesn’t want to be as divided between “This and That” as it has been.  I’m appreciating the power of stillness, pauses, space and breath noticing how these impact my physical and mental health & thought processes– as well as my ability to truly listen to what the people in my life are communicating to me. I’m also getting excited about the process of book-writing again. Eclipses shift our consciousness; Gemini rules mind, thinking, communication and Sagittarius, the search for truth, understanding and meaning, our vision for life.

Eclipse watching in your own chart? If you have planet(s) at or near 18′ Gemini (Sag, Virgo, Pisces) or 2′ Sagittarius (Gem, Virgo, Pisces) on the Thanksgiving Day eclipse, you are being stimulated by this set. Here are the final eclipses for this cycle.

Solar Eclipses often create awareness of birth, death and change. Yesterday, I saw a baby bird being "played with" by a naive puppy, of which the owner, my neighbor, was unaware. Trying everything in my power to stop it, I felt so helpless watching from the other side...
