Partial Solar Eclipse - January 5th

There will also be a partial solar eclipse on January 5th, at 5:41 p.m. Pacific time.  This eclipse will take place in Purva Ashadha Nakshatra and will be joined by Saturn and Mercury.  In spite of the fact that this is only a partial eclipse, the conjunction with Saturn makes it a challenging one.  Purva Ashadha nakshatra is ruled by Apas, the god of water.  In a previous newsletter, I talked about Saturn's transit in Purva Ashadha and the effect it has on issues related to water, world-wide.  So this eclipse isn't doing anything new, but it is magnifying challenges in this area.
 
 Purva Ashadha's shakti is the power to energize, so the eclipse also further challenges us to get our global act together in addressing issues related to making a transition from carbon based energy sources to renewable sources. It could also suggest an increase in various types of power-related problems in various regions  of the world.
 
On the personal level, the next couple months will be a good time to work on your health, especially with respect to increasing your general energy level.  The tendency of the eclipse, left to its  own, is to diminish energy.  However, if you work at improving your energy, you could  reverse this tendency and even increase your energy.  Diet, exercise, staying  hydrated, and eliminating refined carbohydrates from your diet might be a good place to start.  In any case, there is no reason that you have to feel sluggish if you simply make an effort.
 
The Mantra for this eclipse is: Om Shri Purva Ashadha Nakshatra Devataye Namah
