Solar Eclipse Sagittarius 2021 – Crucible of Change

Solar Eclipse

The past couple of years have been quite an intense ride, what with the eclipse cycles that have been hitting on the Sagittarius-Gemini axis. Get ready for more, as the last Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius for this cycle is going to be another crucible of change. We’ve been feeling this one brewing and now that it’s here, the games begin.

The Solar Eclipse Itself

The Solar Eclipse goes exact at 12 Sag 22’02” on December 3rd, 2021 23:43:00 PDT (December 4th, 2021 07:43:00 UTC). This lunar cycle takes place in the sign of Sagittarius. This highlights our optimism, our philosophy, long-distance or foreign travel. The primary aspect of Sun conjunct Moon denotes a time of fresh starts, new beginnings, and an opportunity to start again. As this is a Solar Eclipse, which functions as a super-powered New Moon, these themes will be ever-present for the following several months rather than the usual four-week lunar period.

As this eclipse takes place in a mutable sign, there can be some pretty rapid changes that will test us. Anyone with planets or major points (Ascendant/Descendant, Midheaven/IC, North/South Nodes) between 7 degrees to 17 degrees Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces will be feeling this Solar Eclipse more acutely than others who don’t have anything significant in that degree range. The wider the orb, the lesser the impact, but it will still be felt in some manner.

Other Aspects to the Solar Eclipse

The Sagittarius Solar Eclipse on December 3rd, 2021.

One of the principal aspects that’s immediately apparent is Solar Eclipse Sagittarius quincunx Uranus retrograde in Taurus. This colors the events connected to this eclipse cycle with an uncertainty concerning our notions of stability, money, and comfort. We’ve got this new beginning, but we could be doubting whether we can follow through and fulfill the promises that we’re hoping to fulfill.

Another aspect of note is the Solar Eclipse’s conjunction to Mercury, highlighting messages, communications, and travel. Given that both the Eclipse and Mercury are in Sagittarius, I’d say both long-distance and local travel will factor into events for the next several months.

The messages we’re likely to be experiencing during this time should also be some messages of hope and good news. At the very least, some lucky breaks should be possible now. If there’s any ill news, its impact should be somewhat reduced or at least not as shocking.

There is also a Sextile to Saturn in Aquarius that also helps smooth things over. New projects begun or in progress now are more likely to be successful now. This is because Saturn is direct in a sign it shares rulership with Uranus in for one thing. The harmonious sextile aspect present here allows for a little more ease in accomplishing the tasks we need to take on, unlike the heaviness that a square or opposition would entail.

Think of it this way: you could be setting up a business, and you get a message that you need to set up a new bank account for business expenses. While the bureaucracy and procedures will take up time, it’s likely to go more smoothly and get that business up and running faster than if there were some serious problems, like an untimely audit.
