We will be experiencing a Solar Eclipse on December 14, 2020 beginning at 11:16 am EST.

According to, this “total solar eclipse, the last eclipse of 2020, is visible from Chile and some parts of Argentina in the afternoon. Some regions in southern South America, south-west Africa, and Antarctica will see a partial solar eclipse, if the weather permits.”

We wanted to share some Astrological information on an eclipse.

An eclipse is considered to be much stronger than the effects of the New or Full Moons. An Eclipse has a conjunction with either the North or South Nodes. This on its own is one reason that an eclipse is considered stronger than the various other Moon phases.

The Nodes are significant because of their effects on our lives. An eclipse to the North Node is considered more favorable than an eclipse linked with the South Node. The North Node has energies similar to Jupiter and the South Node has energies similar to Saturn.

The December 14, 2020, eclipse is linked by less than 4 degrees to the South Node.

If a natal planet is within close proximity (3 degrees) to this eclipse and in major aspect (Conjunction, Opposition, Square, Trine and Sextile), this eclipse will have an effect on you personally. Take into consideration the angles of your chart as well (Ascendant, MC, DC and IC) as these play important roles in how this eclipse will interact with your chart. Conjunctions and Oppositions are the most powerful and can have a profound effect in your life. The area of life will be revealed by the houses influenced and sign of the eclipse.

This eclipse falls in the sign of Sagittarius and will be at 23 degrees. This position and its opposition position (23 degrees Gemini) will be influencing factors in this eclipse. This is important to consider because the average eclipse has lasting effects often longer than 3 hours in duration and Mars and/or Saturn while in transit will make conjunctions and oppositions to this placement activating the eclipse. These transits only activate the eclipse position when in conjunction or opposition. Saturn will not be making a conjunction or opposition to this placement while it is in effect.

Eclipses are rated from one to seven depending on their strength which is measured with increments related to its positioning and aspects by other transits taking place at the same time. In worldly matters this eclipse in December, 2020 is considered a six according to the natal birth position of the USA. As a result, this should be a very influential eclipse for the USA in general. The solar eclipse manifests in a more external manner than the lunar eclipse and it lasts longer. As a side note, most lunar eclipses have a duration of one year while a solar eclipse can last as long as five years.

On a personal basis, the planet making an aspect to the eclipse degree is highly significant and will interact with the basic influence of the sign Sagittarius. This has to do with spirituality, religious doctrines, long distance travel and publications among other things.

We also have to look into the energies associated with the ruling planet of Sagittarius, which is Jupiter, often referred to as the greater benefactor promising growth and expansion along with feelings associated with positivity and good fortune. If this placement is poorly aspected within the personal natal chart however, Jupiter can expand on an already challenging situation. Sometimes energies associated with the eclipse can be felt or experienced up to one to two months prior to the eclipse degree and as mentioned will be activated over several years by Mars.

Watch in the near future as we will be sharing more information on the eclipse.
