Given that the previous eclipse may have stirred in us deep feelings of insecurity, on a material or emotional level, due to possibly radical or forced changes, the present eclipse comes to ‘inflame’ these feelings in such a way that they must be communicated to the appropriate ‘recipients’. In fact, with the Lights, Mercury and Venus reactivating the Saturn-Uranus square (an aspect that we have often called ‘Deconstruction and Reformation’, in effect since early 2021), there may be an urgent need for a permanent disconnection from emotions, values and attitudes that serve no purpose anymore. This disconnection or cutting off comes as a further result of the possibly extreme revisions that many may have made due to Mars being retrograde and out of bounds.
The disconnection, albeit sad, can be liberating, making room for the new. After all, there can be great reserves of faith that the pain of disconnection will lead somewhere better despite the general uncertainty and confusion of the current period (Neptune trine Sun-Mercury-Venus and conjunct Jupiter, retrograde Mars square Jupiter-Neptune). To the extent that a spirit of forgiveness or compromise prevails, the disconnection or cutting off can be experienced as a trial break with definitive decisions to be made from mid-January onwards when Mars returns to direct motion. So, what or who is it that you want to cut yourself off from?
