The Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is a resurgence of vim and self-determination. It’s magic, old and new, and treasure you raided from your own vaults, like an archeologist of the psyche.
Jupiter on the South Node makes it all about the past and that theme continues into January. Think about it: Pluto, then Saturn and now Jupiter on the South Node in Capricorn. This New Moon Eclipse, the Sun, and then Mercury are all in on the act. Saturn conjunct Pluto is epochal and socio-political in range. Obviously it’s influential, but the Eclipse is more personal.
Whatever your history, you’re sleuthing it. You could have raised yourself like a wild wolf, learning young to listen for noises in the night, fangs and sixth sense sharp by necessity. Or maybe good fortune formed your character, and you became wise from a good education and role models.
You could count your ‘self’ as having begun at birth however many years ago or see this as one lifetime amid many incarnations.
Regardless, this Solar Eclipse in Capricorn provides new material that illuminates your origin story. It comes complete with omens only you understand and dreams that make complete sense if you don’t try to analyze them.
How the hell does this awareness count as a resurgence? We all know magical or shamanic s**t never counts towards – say – a good credit history or anything considered ‘cool’? Well, instead of trying to breathe energy into things that are not really yours or require constant attention to even work, your real tools/talismans/weapons are inexhaustible.
And the last nine months helped you recover them. The atmosphere is still crazy out there but you are resurgent.
