ADVENT ON THE LUNAR ECLIPSE OF 30 NOVEMBER 2020
Advent is a season of the liturgical year observed in most Christian denominations as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for both the celebration of the Nativity of Christ at Christmas and the return of Christ at the Second Coming. Advent is the beginning of the liturgical year for most in Western Christianity and begins this year on Sunday, Nov 29, 2020 and ends on – Thu, Dec 24, 2020.
Advent means ‘Coming’ in Latin. This is the coming of Jesus into the world. Christians use the four Sundays and weeks of Advent to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas. Some people fast and purify themselves during Advent to help them concentrate on preparing to celebrate the birth of Christ consciousness and Jesus’s Second Coming.
As celebrated by Christian churches in the Western tradition (as opposed to Eastern Orthodox churches, which keep a different calendar), the season of Advent begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas and is celebrated on each successive Sunday leading up to Christmas. In the Catholic Church, Advent is a period of preparation extending over the four Sundays before Christmas. Advent reminds Christians of the sacred meaning of Christmas. Despite the secular preparations taking place, e.g. buying presents and going to parties, Advent reminds Christians to remember and prepare for the birth of Christ Consciousness within the individual human soul. The Nativity of Jesus symbolizes the highest moment of the Christian calendar. The birth of Jesus holds particularly special meaning for us in that because Jesus overcame, so can we. He was able to live and endure this world in human form, teach and love others, point them to the Father, then conquered death, hell, and the grave.
The 5 Candles of Advent
The Advent wreath is symbolised by four Candles on a wreath of evergreen and is shaped in a perfect circle to symbolize the eternity of God, with a central fifth candle. This wreath of ‘circle cross’ is a symbol of the Earth, esoteric ruler of Sagittarius and spiritual ruler of Gemini. Each candle is lit on each Sunday of the Advent and on Christmas Eve, the fifth candle in the center is lit; the four elements combine to become a fifth: our Divine Soul.
The colour associated with the fifth candle is purple, the colour of Advent itself and which in ancient times was the colour of royalty, purple
dye was costly and rare in those times. So, the liturgical colour of Advent is a symbol of looking forward to welcoming the coming of a King and of a new era.
The four traditional advent themes for the four Advent Sundays are:
- The Candle of Hope. ‘Faith is the substance of things hoped for.’
- The second candle is the Candle of Love, the essence of Life.
- The third Candle is of Joy, the result of Love
- The fourth is the Candle of Peace, meaning fulfillment, wholeness, harmony and well-being.
- There is the fifth Purple/Violet candle that synthesizes the four; Christ the King principle. On Christmas eve, the fifth purple candle, symbolizing wealth, power and royalty is lit. Purple is historically the main color used for Advent because it reflects penitence, fasting, and the color of royalty to welcome the Advent of the king (Jesus Christ).
Advent is a four-week period of purification that takes place in Sagittarius in preparation for spiritual rebirth in Capricorn. Sagittarius Season begins on November 21-22 and in this life-changing 2020 it encompasses an Eclipse Season of a Lunar Eclipse on the 30th. November and a Solar Eclipse on the 14th December, 2020.
During the four weeks of Advent the four parts of the human psyche (physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual) are aligned to be united with the Soul on Winter Solstice, which in 2020 is presided by the giants of our Solar system, Jupiter and Saturn; the Great Conjunction of the 21st. Century takes place on 21 Dec 2020. This meeting which takes place on the first degree of humanitarian Aquarius opens not only a new 20-year cycle for these two Rulers of the social order – they always meet in even number decades – but also a whole new cycle in Air signs for the next 200 years! The last time of this huge cycle in Air signs was in 1226!
The keynote of the Aquarian era from Jan 2021 is driven by goodwill and conscious co-operation, cohesion and restoring balance and harmony via peaceful solutions.
In this momentous year of 2020 the Advent season coincides with the penumbral North Node Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in 8+Gemini conjunct the Star Aldebaran sponsored by the Sun conjunct the Star Antares in 8+ Sagittarius on the very last day of 30 November 2020. It also encompasses a Solar Eclipse on the 14th December, the last eclipse of the year, highlighting the Gemini/Sagittarius polarity.
Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the Zodiac round, igniting the intrinsic human force that drives us forward into the future in full faith & hope and trust that we will prosper if we stay true to our belief that our purpose is to serve our world and not just ourselves. Sagittarius is associated with ‘higher learning, truth, dissemination of knowledge, and beliefs’. Thus, the media, publishing, education, writing, teaching plus travel and adventure, for this is the sign of seeking. Sagittarius, is known for distant travels, truth, justice, freedom, higher education, philosophy, humor, religion, politics, teachers, optimism, risk-taking, trust, adventure, faith, and mysticism.
Sagittarius is ruled by the fabulous giant planet Jupiter – the planet of luck and optimism and enthusiasm. Jupiter always sees the glass half full and that the world is a wonderful place full of opportunity and serendipity. Jupiter parallels Uranus by declination on the same day of the full moon Eclipse, energetically aligning the planet of expansion and God of righteousness, advocate of justice with the Rebel, Revolutionary and Agent of Change. This configuration is great for inducing and embracing change and opening to the new but it can be ungrounded, chaotic and unexpected in its other side!
Lunar Eclipse November 2020 Astrology
The Lunar Eclipse on the 30th November takes place at 8+ Gemini, and anyone with a natal or progressed planet within 3 degrees of this point or its opposite in Sagittarius or placement in Virgo or Pisces may be experiencing challenges that indicate a change in life’s circumstances. All eclipses carry high voltage life-changing energies and this Lunar Eclipse is a powerful time of great change and transformation with uplifting tendencies, taking us to an higher ground.
Eclipse affects our subtle bodies (Emotional. Mental, Causal) and this eclipse signifies a way to start listening and not talking at, to heal the split between people, families, to see thru fake Neptunian news, and begin to see there is no us and them but we are One Humanity in Rainbow colours. Gemini on its higher side can see oneness in diversity and this enable us to heal the split somehow.
LUNAR ECLIPSES are intensely emotional and as the Moon symbolises the mood of the people and this mood is split and confused with NEPTUNE in PISCES widely squared the SUN and MOON indicating much fake news, projection, VIRUSES, endings, secrets, mental illness, etc. all demanding healing.
The November 30 lunar eclipse at 08°38′ Gemini sits on a very intense axis of fixed stars; Aldebaran at 10°04′ Gemini opposite Antares at 10°02′ Sagittarius. Full moon November 2020 also links to another polarity with Venus in Scorpio opposite Uranus in Taurus. Whilst the Full Moon is quincunx Venus, the Sun on the other hand is quincunx Uranus setting up an uncomfortable but transformative configuration which can lead to some radical change or just chaos.
This lunar eclipse and its partner solar eclipse on 14th December close the door on the intense transforming Capricorn focus of this year. Just after the second of these eclipses on the 14th December, Saturn leaves Capricorn on 17th December, with Jupiter following suit on 19th December. They then form a conjunction, dancing together in the first degree of Aquarius on the Solstice (21st December). This sequence of astrological events brings to a powerful end what has been a monumental and tumultuous year in human history.
On Saturday November 28th- Neptune stations direct 18’09 Pisces, making the planet of mysticism and illusion the most powerful planet in the sky just before the Lunar Eclipse of 30th November. Neptune has been retrograding since June; NEPTUNE turned Stationary June 22-25th and then Retrogrades in PISCES for the next 5 months until November 28. Neptune is great for mysticism, spirituality, intuition, compassion, altruism and Unconditional Love. Yet shadow Neptune can also be present in the form of denial, delusion, lies or avoidance of reality, fantaSEE wherein strange and misunderstood happenings come about.
On November 28 NEPTUNE turns DIRECT at 18+PISCES, Neptune Retrograde since June 22nd has been pulling us back into old dreams, unconscious memories, denial, addictions, projections and illusions. Neptune rules VIRUSES and we may overcome this virus as she goes direct and we can start to get a clearer picture of reality now. When Neptune turns direct, we can sing “I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW, the rain and mist is gone”. As we write, various Vaccinations against the ravaging Covid-19 are announced. The vaccines success story gives us hope for the future.
The Biggest Solar Storm in 3 years!
Preceding the Lunar Eclipse on 30th November, NASA Reports: “Major Solar Flare …Earlier today (Nov. 29th at 1311UT), Earth-orbiting satellites detected the biggest solar flare in more than 3 years. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded this extreme-ultraviolet movie of the M4.4 category blast: X-rays and UV radiation from the flare ionized the top of Earth’s atmosphere, producing a shortwave radio blackout over the South Atlantic. A Type II Radio Emission with an estimated velocity of 765 km/s was associated with the event, indicating a coronal mass ejection (CME) was associated with the flare event.“.

These Solar Storms affect our subtle electro-magnetic fields and the Schumann Resonance of the Earth itself. A Gemini Lunar Eclipse is affecting our minds and consciousness. The SUN is conjunct the Fixed STAR ANTARES whilst the Moon is conjunct Aldebaran, mediating cosmic energies from these giant Stars which may have stimulated these outbursts of solar Storm.
Solar Eclipse December 14 at 23º Sagittarius
These last days of 2020 are opportunities to plant seeds that will turn into the tallest, most luscious trees in 2021 onward. The days following this Solar Eclipse are perfect for setting intentions and thinking about what goals and ambitions you want to take on in the new year and new decade. While you can set intentions at this time, you may also have to be patient and see what this Eclipse brings in; it is wise to be patient and wait for the Universe to make things right for us.
foreverconscious.com tell us that “On a Solar Eclipse, a new doorway is opened that helps to push and advance us further on our soul path. Under the energy of the December Solar Eclipse, we are going to be shown a new path. A new way is going to unfold. This new way may appear subtle at first. Perhaps it will begin as a new thought or a new feeling, and then slowly it will shift into taking a new action. It’s almost like this Eclipse opens a new stream of energy which we can take and download into our lives. How we download it is up to us and where we are on our journey, but all of us are going to be changed, all of us are going to be awakened in some way.”
Eclipses are ‘portals’ between life phases so if you are a Sag, Gemini, Virgo or Pisces this eclipse cycle is big for you and may open sudden new pathways. The Solar Eclipse on the 14th December takes place at 23º Sagittarius, and anyone with a natal or progressed planet within 3 degrees of this point (or its opposite in Gemini or Virgo or Pisces, all on the Mutable Cross Of Humanity) may be experiencing powerful changes and leap forward into 2021.
The Jupiter Saturn great Conjunction & The “Age Of Aquarius”
This powerful and trending planetary event happening on the Solstice on December 21st. is called “the Great Conjunction.” of the heavyweights of our solar system. Jupiter (the largest planet in our solar system) and Saturn (the second largest planet in our solar system) will be in perfect alignment in the night sky.
What does Jupiter Saturn conjunction mean?
A Grand Conjunction is what happens when the planets Jupiter and Saturn meet up. Together they are known as the Great Chronocrators, meaning the Markers of Time, and they have always been associated with epochal social change when they coincide on their orbital perambulations. There were two astronomical events involving conjunctions of these planets around the time of Jesus’ birth—the triple conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn in Pisces in 7 B.C.E. and the near-conjunction of Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn in Pisces in February 6 B.C.E.
AGE OF AQUARIUS IS HERE
One of the most important astro-events of 2020 is the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius that takes place on December 21, on the winter Solstice after the last Solar Eclipse of 2020. Since ancient times, astrologers have tracked the 20-year Jupiter-Saturn cycle, noting that the conjunctions tended to occur in the same element for around 200 years. When the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction “mutated” — meaning changed elements — it marked the beginning of a new geopolitical, cultural, economic era.
The Jupiter-Saturn conjunction has taken place in Earth signs, but in 2020 there is a change to Air signs. We can solve our earthly
Problems and solve them in the Air!
People have been talking and singing about the dawning of the Age of Aquarius for decades now, and many astrologers believe that the monumental “great conjunction” taking place on December 21, 2020 is the cosmic event that’s officially heralding it in. Astrologers and historians have debated when the Age of Aquarius begins – some think it was in the Sixties and others much earlier but this Great conjunction could be considered the beginning of the new era, the new Aquarian Age has finally arrived. As Aquarius rules a fairer society, equality, technology, all things futuristic & freedom, we’ve arrived at the Age of Aquarius and values of “love, brotherhood, unity and integrity” are the keynotes. This is unlikely to bring the change we all want overnight. But it does offer hope and suggest that things are starting to move in the right direction. Here’s hoping we’ve all learned from the admittedly tough Capricorn lessons of 2020 and we can start to create a better world for everyone.
Men and women of goodwill with awakened hearts and enlightened minds have formed meditation groups worldwide to mediate spiritual energies and forces. These meditation groups can redirect these energies toward genuine service and the upliftment of humanity. Groups of World-Servers agreeing by consensus on the changes needed give transcendent forces working thru them to effect changes. A united invocation for the good of the whole can overcome any obstacle to world progress. People have the power through focused and united invocation to affect world events. The massed thought power of the men and women of goodwill can create a channel of communication between the One Life and humanity through which spiritual energies can flow to heal and rebuild a troubled world. It is this power, properly used and directed, that can be humanity’s saving force. Their responsibility at this time is ‘‘to invoke the Lords of Liberation and the Spirit of Peace. These are the Beings which have the power to raise Humanity, once the race has assumed the right attitude.’‘
