International turmoil, travel restrictions, pundit spewing grandiose claims? It’s par for the course as we reach the final eclipse in a series that’s thundered across the Gemini/Sagittarius nodal axis since May 5, 2020.
Gemini and Sagittarius are the signs that rule communication, media, travel, and neighborhoods, and we’ve spent the bulk of the pandemic focused on these themes—from attacks on journalism to widespread disinformation to travel lockdowns.
The December 4 Sagittarius solar eclipse puts the spotlight on global matters, like, oh, a pandemic. Yes, it’s delivered one last blow to the hope that travel—the Sagittarius domain—would open up again, at least for now. And since it’s following a lunar eclipse in Taurus, the sign that rules the financial realm, we’re seeing economic shake-ups worldwide as well. No surprise, at least from an astrologer’s POV, that the omicron variant would show up between these two eclipses.
But eclipses are teachers and awakeners. So rather than wring your hands or point fingers at this final Sagittarius eclipse, it would be more productive to look at where we’ve left our collective work unfinished. As the nodes prepare their shift onto the Taurus/Scorpio axis on January 18, 2022, we have another six weeks to do that.
