When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
Okay, so the Moon won’t be in your 7th house as the Now Age of Aquarius begins. That privilege is reserved for Capricorns. Plus, Jupiter won’t align with Mars. It will however, meet Saturn in your 6th of all things familiar and Virgo ruled on December 21 . Which is when we can say the Now Age of Aquarius is cosmically underway. You are set to be the Now Age revolutionary when it comes to anything connected to work, routine, wellbeing and devotion, Virgo. empowerment, transformation, sharing and yes, sex on December 21. Which is when we can say the Now Age of Aquarius is cosmically underway.
In fact, due to current global conditions, we can say your sign has been the go-to one for how to work it right all year. Just think of the upcoming Now Age as one where your current skill set is an example to us all. So, get ready to become the guru, the visionary, the revolutionary and the Whole Life Editor for all of us.
First, we are in mutable weather with the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Juno in Sagittarius. Neptune and Ceres in Pisces. Plus, the North Node in Gemini and Vesta in in your own sign. And mutable eclipse weather too with a total solar eclipse in Sagittarius on the 14th. The day when your ruler Mercury will oppose the North Node in Gemini. This is a karmic eclipse for many and will take us back to 2002 – or even further in 19-year cycles.
Bring it on home, baby
The focus is on your 4th especially when ruler Mercury arrives in here on the 1st. Plus by now you will have worked out that all this 4th house activity is going to square your Virgo factors.
First, check your chart for any factors at 23 degrees. Especially in your own sign. But also, in any of the other mutable signs – Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces. If you are unsure then one of our knowledgeable astrologers can help you. If you have chart factors at 23 degrees of ANY sign, then this eclipse will impact you in a personal way on some level. Even if this involves events at a distance.
This is extreme ‘mutable’ weather and ‘mutable’ means changing. So, what emerges or what you hear under this eclipse is going to change. Eclipses conceal or cover-up. When we have a total eclipse the cover-up is just that. We are totally in the dark about something. This applies to all of us no matter what our sign if the eclipse hits our chart factors.
Your 4th rules your home, your family, your roots, your house, apartment, tenants, lodger, Airbnb and also your mother and if you like, your ‘emotional’ style. How you show caring and nurture others. How you in turn need to be shown care. It’s also about safety, security, roots and on a much wider level, our homeland. This eclipse takes place in the sign of Sagittarius which rules all things far away and foreign. The international stage. Overseas connections. Emigration. Refugees. The supply chain. Long haul journeys. Airlines. Globalization. World views. So, you have all of this contrasted against the closeness and comfort we crave in our 4th.
Events stirred up by this eclipse may make us withdraw, shut doors or borders. Lock down. Refuse to let others in. Obviously, this strikes a theme around Covid. But we may feel under threat by anything we perceive has the potential to undermine our security now.
Sagittarius also rules the mass media. And as we’ve already said, eclipses conceal and total eclipses absolutely. So, while we may feel threatened or unsettled by what we are told under the eclipse, we need to stop and ask ourselves if this is as bad as we are being told. Or even if there is actually anything to be scared of in the first place before we retreat into that blanket fort for good.
If you are moving or buying, selling, leasing or renting now, you need to treat this eclipse as if it were Mercury retro on steroids. There is something you don’t know either about the property itself, the deal, the area, the vendor or the terms. People could back out. Withdraw. Go back on their word. The survey reveals something unexpected. The search tells you there’s a new rail link planned, right through your loungeroom. Look deeper. Also, reference check that potential roommate or lodger.
There’s a sub theme with this eclipse and that is owning your path. Failure to launch factors could emerge and if you are still living at home with your parents, you may now commit to striking out on your own. Even if all you can rent is Harry Potter’s cupboard. Likewise, if you have been people-pleasing, living in the shadow of a parent, or have become too dependent on them for support, ahead of the Now Age you may commit to changing this under this eclipse. As could actually planning a major move to a new area, town or even country. Simply put, you may suddenly see the need for breathing space.
Live it large
All this is linked to wellness of course as your living arrangement and lifestyle determine this. On December 17, Saturn finally exits your 5th house. Not to return for another 29 years! Jupiter will follow two days later on the 19th. For many of us, the restrictions we have been labouring under began at the end of 2017 when Saturn first entered here. And peaked in 2020 when we had the life-changing conjunction between Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and Ceres in Capricorn in January.
Since then, we’ve had to adapt and work within restrictions – symbolised by Saturn’s rings. However, so many of us are now emerging from this cycle with a new perspective on what really matters. This has also been due to Uranus’s presence in that other earth sign of Taurus. Along with those restrictions it’s refined our value system. Uranus always wants to hand us freedom. And it’s been in your 9th which is all about that.
So, look at what you value which hands you the freedom to live and work in a way that supports your overall wellbeing as you enter the Now Age. The 21st also brings us one of the most powerful solstice events of the decade. This day sees the Sun arrive in your 5th. ‘Tis the season not only to be jolly but for romance, hobbies, children, your inner child and creative self-expression now. But this is also the day when Jupiter and Saturn meet in your 7th at zero degrees of Aquarius. And marks what will be the ‘official’ start of the Now Age.
Check your chart again for any aspects at zero degrees of any sign. This includes your ascendant or rising sign, descendant, IC or midheaven as well as your North Node. Again, if you need more insight, one of our astrologers can help you.
Working smarter, not harder. Innovating that routine or exercise regimen. Anything that improves or enhances your wellbeing. If you are looking for work or want to change your job, then Jupiter should deliver at least one offer during the next 12 months. And Saturn puts you on a long-term course.
So, any changes you make are likely to stick, Virgo. Your 6th is the sign of Aquarius which rules the maverick, the innovator, the entrepreneur, new ideas and industries. And anything that impacts on groups or the collective. Fitness coaches, professional organisers, wellbeing gurus, personal trainers, dieticians, influencers, health bloggers, your pharmacist, health food stores, organic food, vegetarianism or veganism, complimentary medicine and on a more mundane level your co-workers, employment agencies, retraining – all these could feature.
You could be an advocate or a follower. Or you may decide to become a teacher or leader yourself in any of the areas described above. Making even small but permanent changes to what you eat, your routine or habits will result in massive ones in other areas under this cycle. Finding an activity buddy is favoured too provided you adhere to any current guidelines. That friendship could take you places you would never imagine.
2020 ends with a full Moon not in your 7th but your 11th of the future on the 30th. So, start designing that new routine now. This goes beyond resolutions but know if you do make those, you’ll most probably put the rest of us to shame once more by sticking to them. The last day of the year sees Venus in your 4th oppose the North Node in your 10th. Those resolutions could include long-held career ambitions. A chance to move on up in more ways than one could be waiting in 2021.
In a nutshell: Every little thing you do or focus on matters, Virgo. And never more so than in the Now Age of Aquarius which begins this month. That perfect world you’d like to design begins with you this December.
