This December, there won't be an ordinary new moon. Instead, on Dec. 26 at 12:13 a.m. ET, a solar eclipse will blast through the cosmos, setting you off on a brand-new path. In astrology, a solar eclipse is a lot like a new moon, only its power is supremely amplified. While a new moon may encourage you to try something different or set an intention to guide you forward, a solar eclipse tends to invoke a new beginning altogether. While the unexpected shifts that often follow this astrological phenomenon can be overwhelming, the December 2019 solar eclipse will be the best for these zodiac signs: Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, and Sagittarius.
However, when it comes to an eclipse, it's difficult to define the experience as innately "good" or "bad". The reason eclipses are associated with life-altering changes is that they activate the lunar nodes (aka your karmic destiny). An eclipse can shake up your entire life so you'll eventually be brought closer to the path you're meant to take. Whatever happens on an eclipse is meant to, regardless of whether it feels terrifying or exciting.
Taking place in Capricorn, this eclipse is all about regaining control over your life, embracing maturity, and forming a practical plan to achieve your goals. Forming a trine to groundbreaking and rebellious Uranus, this solar eclipse encourages a revolutionary shift. As transformative Pluto and karmic Saturn form a rare conjunction, you may bear witness to major destruction as a form of creation. If you need to tear things down in order to start anew, embrace the freedom that's to come.
