Powerful Solar Eclipse 26 December 2019

The eclipse is at 9º58 Sagittarius Mula Nakshatra. The first location to see the start of the full eclipse is at 3:34:33 UTC; the maximum eclipse is at 5:17:46 UTC and the last place to see the total eclipse end is at 7:00:55. The annular phase of this solar eclipse is visible from Saudi Arabia, Southern India (Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu), North Sri Lanka, Singapore and parts of Indonesia.

This is a significant eclipse and can be a very disruptive influence. Six planets Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and Ketu are conjoined and it is rare to have six planets together in a sign but even more unusual to have the eclipse at the same time. This is a Ketu eclipse and it can release a lot of tension and stress that has been accumulating over the year.

The eclipse is at 9º58 Sagittarius Mula Nakshatra. Sagittarius is a warrior sign transforming the world from material to spiritual. It will fight for change and does not always care about the cost as old patterns need to break in order that new can manifest. Mula is the root, and it wants to destroy the source of past karma so that the soul can be free.

During the eclipse, all planets are in three signs creating a transit Shula yoga (we do not take Rahu Ketu in this yoga.) Shula yoga is part of the Nabhasa yoga which shows the pattern of planets in the sky. Shula comes crome Trishula – which is the weapon of Lord Shiva. This can be used to destroy ignorance, however, in the wrong hands, it can create pain, sorrow and destruction.

Jupiter is combust by the Sun, so its strength is Sagittarius and wisdom is not present to handle this explosive and unsettled situation. The potential of this eclipse is to make significant changes. Events do not happen on the day of the eclipse, but we can feel the disruptive energy. It is best to keep life simple on 25th and 26th of December and not make any significant decisions. The mind feels very restless and anxious. We should not add to it. As the eclipse passes, you will see the energy dissipating and clarity resuming.

I have made three videos on the Jupiter transit

Powerful Mars in Scorpio

25 December 2019 to 7 February 2010

Mars avoids the eclipse by moving into Scorpio, its own sign and in dignity. While this is a good position, we can only enjoy its positivity after the disruptive energies of the eclipse have settled down.

It creates Ruchaka Mahapurusha Yoga for Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.

  • Aries is in a mood for change.
  • Taurus will get strong support from partners.
  • Gemini should be careful of opposition and avoid angry confrontations. They need to focus on their well-being.
  • Cancer will enjoy many opportunities and luck.
  • Leo will feel strength from home and can successfully invest in real estate. Their luck is in, which opens many doorways easily.
  • Virgo can feel motivated to make changes in life.
  • Libra can get financial issues sorted. Good time to invest.
  • Scorpio gains the most as their ascendant ruler is energised and gives the power to deal with the world.
  • Sagittarius must watch their expenses. The eclipse has been powerful so still keeping calm and life simple. Wait for 2020
  • Aquarius can get opportunities professionally.
  • Pisces experience luck and blessings to further their knowledge. Postive openings to improve their life.
