Here's How the Total Solar Eclipse Will Affect Your Zodiac Sign

Get ready for a powerful boost of energy from this cosmic event.

December 4 marks the first and last total solar eclipse of 2021. According to Nebula‘s Western astrologer Yana Yanovich, the upcoming eclipse will mostly be visible in Antarctica but can be partially seen on the southmost territories of Australia, Africa and South America from 12:29 a.m. to 4:37 a.m. EST. “The energy of the eclipse, however, is felt regardless of your geographical location and it will slowly build up the day before the actual event with December 4 carrying the strongest charge,” Yanovich tells us.

To prepare for the cosmic event, read about how the total solar eclipse will affect each zodiac sign and what kind of energy it will bring below.

What kind of energy will the total solar eclipse bring?

Depending on your sign, the total solar eclipse’s energy may provide you with a strong boost or progress with events and activities in your life. However, it could also bring some tense and challenging moments.

The eclipse will happen in Sagittarius, which is connected with the search for growth and improvement, education and learning, and the focus on the future. It will happen in close proximity to Mercury — the planet of information and communication — so the main theme is clear and distinct. Neptune — the planet of confusion, delusion and deceit — will make this upcoming eclipse not only about knowledge and self-improvement, but also about your ability to tell apart valuable information and something misleading, be it intentionally or by honest error.

Thus, in the first days of December, there is a higher need to carefully consider the sources from which you receive information. If you have a negative influence on your natal chart during this period, you have a higher risk of being cheated or taken advantage of. If you have a positive influence of the eclipse in your chart, you have the opportunity to help others not become a victim of deception by giving them the correct information. The general energy is knowledge, education and improvement. You have the chance to act as an educator, a guide and a teacher for someone even if it is just one specific situation.

How does the energy of a solar eclipse differ from a full moon’s energy?

Sometimes there is confusion between the influence of a full moon and an eclipse. Astrologically, the moon rules emotions and the subconscious mind, while the sun rules our will and our rational and conscious self. During the full moon, our emotions are heightened and perhaps at times exaggerated because the moon is at its strongest. The influence of an eclipse is a mixed one and is dualistic. On the one hand, an eclipse is an event when the sun and the moon are coming together. This is the time when the deeply hidden potential of your subconscious mind has a direct channel to be willfully expressed. On the other hand, the moon covers and overshadows the sun, causing irrational, instinctual behavior to prevail over our rational mind. For this very reason, it is important to know if the influence of each specific eclipse on you is helping and harmonious, or destabilizing and provocative.

With the event happening at 12 degrees in Sagittarius, people born from the first to the fifth of the month of their sign will definitely be in contact with the point of the eclipse. If you’re born on a different day, the recommendation is standard: check your natal chart to see if any other planets are placed at or near 12 degrees of the mentioned signs.

Effects of the total solar eclipse on each zodiac sign

Sagittarius

If you were born on the same day with this upcoming eclipse or on the day before or after, your natal sun is in close contact with the point of the zodiac where the eclipse is happening. The effect is going to last for a year in your case and the theme of learning, knowledge and education will be particularly important for the next 12 months. If you’re born on a different date, your chart may still be activated because there is a high chance of another personal planet — such as Mercury or Venus — being contacted. Check with an online chart calculator if you have anything in or near the 12th degree of Sagittarius.

Gemini, Virgo, Pisces

Depending on your date of birth, your natal chart can receive a harsh, challenging aspect from the eclipse, which tends to bring conflict and trouble. You are more likely to fall into the misinformation pit or just even suffer from confusion in communication. Make sure to triple-check all communications, especially in serious matters like contracts and official documents. Stay away from rumors and gossip, and be careful on social media.

Aries, Leo, Libra, Aquarius

If your natal chart is activated by the eclipse, it is with a harmonious contact. You have an amazing chance to use the joint force of the sun and the moon to bring something to life that perhaps now feels like an impossible deed. To make this happen, meditate and visualize your dream on June 10 to see it happen in real life. It is best if you read up about visualization practices and set enough time aside to fully clear your mind first.

Cancer, Taurus, Scorpio, Capricorn

Your natal sun placements will not be contacted by the eclipse, but there is a high chance your personal planets such as Mercury, Mars, Moon or Venus are in one of the signs mentioned above. Check your natal chart and read the corresponding recommendation.
