Cosmic Wisdom at the Solar Eclipse this Saturday I am very excited about this Saturday’s live episode of The Natural Wisdom Podcast! Astrologer Emily Trinkaus and I will be sharing ‘Cosmic Wisdom’ on the astrology of the moment, including Saturday’s total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius. While 2020 was the turning point of the age, with some planetary line-ups not seen since the 1200s, 2021 has been a year of turmoil and tension as well. The most significant single influence has been the conflict between freedom and control represented by a square (angle of tension) between the planets Uranus (acceleration, change, freedom) and Saturn (tradition, boundaries, rules). The last exact 90 degree angle comes in the wee hours of Christmas Eve, likely exacerbating the challenges for many families regarding whether or how to gather for the holidays. Another predominant theme coloring our lives since mid-2020 is the polarity between facts and beliefs. The Lunar Nodes, considered to represent karma and destiny in evolutionary astrology, have been in the opposite signs of Gemini and Sagittarius all year. The Nodes bring up seemingly opposing energies for integration. Gemini is the sign of information, curiosity, multiplicity, and fact gathering. Sagittarius represents our belief systems, the stories we tell to make meaning of the world, organized religion and truth. With the South Node in Sagittarius, we seem to experience the darker tones of these themes: beliefs become dogma; our truth becomes the only truth; and/or we outsource our inner knowing to outer ‘experts’. With the North Node in Gemini, we may tend to overdo the gathering of facts, data and statistics in a bid to find an answer. The efforts of Gemini can become an ungrounded mental exercise. Does any of this sound familiar? Saturday’s Solar Eclipse along the South Node will highlight some of the topics I mention here, giving us an opportunity for a reset, for example, of our stories or beliefs. Emily and I will talk about these and other topics as our time allows on Saturday, plus answer your questions. Patrons at the $8 tier can join us live – I’ll post the link tomorrow for you; the live session begins at 10 a.m. Mountain/Noon Eastern. You may also put questions in the comments section of this post if you can’t make it live and we will try to get to them. The podcast episode recording will be on your favorite podcast platform by Saturday afternoon. Thank you again to all patrons for being here. It means a lot!
