Lunar & Solar Eclipses in 2020 and How They Affect Your Life
What do these eclipses mean for me?
OK, so what does this all actually mean? Well, the Cancer-Capricorn eclipses will impact everyone differently based on their personal birth chart.
When astrologers discuss these lunations, we refer to the ways in which they impact a chart as an “eclipse story.” These narratives unfold over the series (approximately two years). Accordingly, the partial solar eclipse in Cancer on July 13, 2018 was a big deal because it was the first lunation in a brand-new series. In other words, it marked the very first chapter of a new karmic story. Think back to what occurred in your life at this time and consider the major players, conflicts, and the location.
Now, consider the same questions on January 5–6, 2019. Did these narratives continue to unfold? Take a moment to consider the theme of this eclipse series; it will carry you all the way through July 2020. Regarding the Gemini-Sagittarius eclipses, the last time we saw these was in December 2010 to November 2012. What life lessons began for you nearly a decade ago? Is your life on your dream path? Or does this next cycle in 2020 mean finally using your will and skills to turn dreams into a reality? Sagittarius in particular, which is ruled by lucky planet Jupiter, knows how to get what it wants.
The last time we experienced eclipses on the Cancer-Capricorn axis was 2009 through 2011. In fact, the eclipse on July 13, 2018 is directly connected to an eclipse that occurred on July 11, 2010. Think back to that time. It may provide clues as to how this upcoming eclipse series will impact you.
Everyone will be impacted by these eclipses, though some charts will be electrified more than others. Take a look at your birth chart: If your lunar nodes are in Cancer-Capricorn or Gemini-Sagittarius, buckle up. This next year and a half will be wild. By 2021, everything will be different. And don’t worry, it will be for the better.
If your nodes are not in these signs, things are still going to change: Planets are also activated by the eclipses. Planets in cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) will be activated by the Cancer-Capricorn eclipses, while those in mutable signs will be activated by the Gemini-Sagittarius eclipses. Whether this placement is your sun, moon, or something else, you will feel the shifts from these potent lunations.
Whether or not the upcoming eclipses of 2020 will make a direct hit on your birth chart, eclipses are a powerful, impactful, and significant time for everyone. The best way to embrace these celestial moments? Expect the unexpected and accept the unknown. Remember, celestial darlings, although our vantage is limited to our current realities, we know the horizon extends past our vision. Life is a journey — enjoy the ride.
