Solar Eclipse in Capricorn


Solar Eclipse

The Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is tonight at 11:11 pm PST. If you have natal planets around 25 degrees of any sign, but especially the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn), then this Eclipse will affect you.

The continued emphasis on Capricorn supports ambition, hard work, practicality, and taking the initiative in business. The New Moon is a time to set intentions for the coming month- to start something new. Jan Spiller wrote an excellent book on the New Moon and how it relates to setting intentions and making wishes. Her book is called New Moon Astrology and there is a small taste of the book here. Considering that this Eclipse occurs at 11:11, there is even a greater reason to take the time to write out a wish list. The best results will unfold from making the wishes heartfelt and having the gist of the wish in line with Capricorn:

Articles about tonight’s New Moon from around the web:

Personally, I get a T-square: Sun and Moon in Capricorn (House 5), squaring Mercury at 26 Aries 48’ (House 8) and opposing Saturn at 26 Cancer 10’ (House 11). Because these planets are all cardinal I will have to take the initiative in resolving conflicts among hobbies and interests (House 5), close partnerships (House 8), and groups (House 11) with which I am involved. However, it may not be that bad because my natal Saturn in Cancer will be in mutual reception with the Moon in Capricorn and the Solar Eclipse Sun falls in my 5th house- the Sun’s natural house. This means that there’s a natural relationship between the groups I am involved in and the personal interests that I’m pursuing. I just have to continue to recognize the needs of the group while I pursue my own interests. With the earthy Capricorn stellium involving the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Pluto, and North Node entirely in my 5th house, the emphasis is on getting ambitious with hobbies/interest, taking interests seriously, working hard on 5th house matters, and getting serious about romance.

It’s a weird thing to have Capricorn, one of the least ‘fun’ signs, on the cusp of the house of ‘fun’. Capricorn on the 5th implies that fun and pleasure take a backseat to practical matters. Capricorn on the 5th house also signifies someone who derives a great deal of pleasure from taking hobbies, interests, and romance seriously. Capricorn 5th house people actually get more pleasure from serious pursuits than from trivial pursuits.

    On the day of the solar eclipse at 25° Capricorn my boyfriend, 25° Cap Sun, lost one of his jobs (he works in 2 music schools + teaches lessons independently).
    And he got a flat tire on my car. (No biggie.)
    Personally, I think the job he lost will just make room for something that he enjoys more and puts his abilities better to use.

    • It probably will make room for something new that is more in line with who he really is (Sun). Which house of his did it fall in?

        His 2nd house 🙂
        Yeah, I think you’re right.
        All he can see at the moment is that he’s losing security – of course. But it seems so clear to me that lately he’s just clearing out old & negative stuff and making room for improvements.
        He also quit his band recently, because artistically it’s not the best match & he’s not having fun at rehearsals. But he’ll be there for the recording of their CD the next 2 weeks – something he can use, too.
        And he’s redoing all the floors in his apartment (got rid of disgusting, old carpets & making it all nice hardwood) – the workers finished on eclipse day. 🙂
        Nice symbolism, no?

        • Very nice symbolism- laying down the groundwork for something new.

    I never really thought about that– the seriousness of Capricorn. I can see how that’d be an influence on the house of “fun”. I have Capricorn on the 7th with ruler Saturn in the 12th, and I tend to be solitary and serious about my relationships. With Scorpio on my 5th, I tend to just have a fuck here and there, and not get involved emotionally unless I meet someone who really manages to screw my defenses. Btw my astro tumblog is at

    • I can see that you’d be serious and solitary when you get involved in real relationships with Cap on the 7th and Saturn in the 12th. I think that Scorpio on the 5th definitely likes the quick, no strings attached fuck. I know a few people with that placement.
