Video Two of this series about the astrology of 2020.



Hello, everybody. I’m Jodie Forrest, and today, we continue with Video Two of this series about the astrology of 2020. Although we’ll focus on 2020, right now we’re discussing a New Moon and solar eclipse on Dec. 26th, 2019. The Sun and Moon will be at the 5th degree of Capricorn then, and Jupiter will be at the 6th degree of Capricorn.

From our naked-eye point of view, during a solar eclipse, the Moon’s disc appears to blot out some or all of the disc of the Sun, as the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, while the Moon also passes across our line of sight to the Sun, so to speak. Not all new Moons are eclipses, because they don’t all happen along that line of sight. A solar eclipse is a very powerful new Moon, because at least somewhere on the Earth, people can see it happening. Simply put, astrological events or placements that we can observe with the naked eye are more powerful than events that we can’t. Until about the 16th century and Galileo, we observed the skies with the naked eye. Remember, too, that astrology is far older than that . . . cave art includes marks that kept track of lunar phases. Megalithic monuments are often a kind of observatory, when the light of an equinox or a solstice struck a certain part of that monument in a certain way.
