For week of December 13-19, 2001

For All Signs We are entering what is called an "eclipse season." Eclipses almost always arrive in pairs, one with the new moon and another with the full moon. On December 14 at 3:47pm EST an annular eclipse of the sun in Sagittarius will be visible in the US and other parts of the world. The answering full moon eclipse will occur on December 30 at 5:40am EST. Eclipse seasons often bring crises and turning points to ongoing situations. Our attention is brought to focus on those areas that demand to be cleansed or allowed to move out of our lives. This is the first in a series of eclipses involving the signs of Sagittarius and Gemini. Read your sun sign (and ascending sign, if you know it) below, to learn what areas the new eclipse series will spotlight.

Aries The accent of this eclipse period is on travel, education, care of vehicles and relationships to siblings, roommates, neighbors, or others who daily traverse your life. Lifelong habit patterns of thought must be reviewed and negative thinking corrected, habits of speech and communication improved. This opens space for relationship to the Spirit. Permit your belief systems to expand and become more inclusive.

Taurus This eclipse series accents personal and financial resources. Greater understanding will develop related to the value of energy and time as resources. Attention will be drawn to important existential issues of life, death and rebirth or transformation. Planning for the future is important now. Conditions of intimate life and sexuality are changing and must be renewed. Old tax issues may surface.

Gemini Your personal identity is the subject under consideration. Who are you becoming and who do you need to be? How do you wish to define yourself before the world? How can you develop an individual identity that is workable while simultaneously maintaining a personally rewarding relationship? You may need to focus attention on improving support for your physical body over the next 18 months.

Cancer The Gemini/Sagittarius eclipses will emphasize your need for both internal and external order. You must remain true to your deepest self and maintain faith that time will yield the secular opportunities that you need. Consider hypnosis or meditation, psychotherapy or journaling as resources to help you achieve goals. Solitude can be healing now. Make decisions slowly and carefully.

Leo Involvement in your community, networking, and developing friendships will occupy much of your attention during the next one and a half years. You will study how to discern who is truly a friend. Those with children must concentrate on fostering the best in those relationships. This eclipse series may gradually yield a significant turn in the area of love life and personal creativity.

Virgo This eclipse series will emphasize career, life goals, community reputation and involvement. Honors may be forthcoming if you have built a solid foundation. Family members plead for more attention in subtle and overt ways. Property may require repair, rejuvenation, or replacement. Family patterns are changing. You may experience a sense of loss, but renewal occurs in its wake.

Libra Legal, ethical or educational issues are emphasized by the eclipses of the next 18 months. Travel is punctuated, whether it be of body, mind or spirit. Exposure to those of different backgrounds or cultures leads you in new directions. Renewal may be necessary related to vehicles, relationships to roommates or siblings, or the local neighborhood. A household move is possible.

Scorpio The eclipse pattern emphasizes issues of sexuality, money and material accumulation. Reorganization of financial resources may be in progress. You may be thinking deeply about existential matters related to life, death, and what is on "the other side" of normal, waking consciousness. Your attitudes about jointly shared resources (including sexuality) must be revised and renewed.

Sagittarius The eclipses of this 18 month series will focus attention on your partnerships and your physical body. What needs to be repaired or improved? How might you contribute to a fuller, richer life for yourself as well as the important persons in your life? It is crucial to search

out solutions that favor everyone concerned. Recapitulation of old habits will simply regenerate the same trauma.

Capricorn It will be important to concentrate on improvement of work related relationships and health maintenance. Diet, exercise and general improvement of physical regimen will serve all other areas of life well. Honing your management systems in personal and work arenas is necessary to improve the efficiency of the daily work routine. You must balance responsibilities of recent years with better self-care.

Aquarius The eclipse pattern emphasizes your progeny. Intense experiences could come through your children or the results of other personally creative births. Both errors and successes in parenting and/or creative work will be revealed for all to see. The time is approaching to let go of friendships and other associations that no longer serve you well.

Pisces Matters concerning your family are accented. Old problems in relationships, even with the deceased, are brought to consciousness for cleansing and healing. Property and real estate matters also require concentration and repairs may be necessary. Bringing career into alignment with your true self is an important focus. That which doesn't genuinely fit must be rearranged or eliminated.
