Is it anything special, astrologically speaking, that for those of us in North America the full moon will be in eclipse on December 20-21, coinciding with the winter soltice on the the 21st? (besides just being very cool.)

Sorry if it's a dumb question - I know nothing at all about astrology.

the moon will be 29 degrees in Gemini, and oppose mercury, who will be retrograde. So Im guessing comunication plays a big roll here, specially in the family, marriages and close relationships.

I dont know alot, but I think if im not right im pretty close.

Actually, we have had eclipses on this 29th degree axis of Sag-Gemini twice before in more recent years. Both those eclipses were reversed, the Sun being at the end of Gemini and the Moon being at the end of Sag. These eclipses occurred on June 21, 1853 and June 20, 1796. Four other such eclipses were also at the 29th degree just a bit less exact --- June 21, 1815, 1834, 1862, and 1786.

You might wish to look at the history of those years in June, near the Solstice date, and draw your clues from those examples. Dave

I think cronegoddess means this is the first time we've had a total lunar eclipse on the Dec. 21st Solstice since 1638 (source: Wikipedia). That's pretty special. :)

Yes it is very interesting!!!!

The significance is more likely to be at the mundane level - that is countries, nations, peoples.

Secondly the eclipse should be visible, if it isn't we have to downgrade it. So if you can see it, it will have some real significance for your country,

This event has not happened in 456 years! 5 centuries ago, wow!

I have a year of 1638 as the last time we had a total eclipse of the Sun that fell on the day of the Winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere but I'm not sure of the visibility of that one, so you may well be right, I'd be interested in your source.

A good general guide for interpreting eclipses can be found at:

http://www.skyscript.co.uk/eclipserules.html

For individuals the suggested rule is that the eclipse will be significant if it happens at a maximum of 1 degree from natal Sun or Moon or one of the four natal angles. Obviously this is compounded if you have Sun or Moon conjunct an angle and the eclipse is also 1 no more than 1 degree from both.

The most interesting part of the article is the relevance to national/public affairs and for this you need a copy of your country's chart and that will give you some indication of what will happen till the next total eclipse.

The 1638 date relates to the last Total eclipse of the Moon on the same day as the December solstice. We haven't actually been clear whether we are referring to a Total eclipse or just any eclipse. The last eclipse on 21 December was in 1981 but that was a partial one.

It also depends on how close is acceptable too, would say 10 days either way be acceptable or do we want it on the date of the solstice itself?

It's the Total eclipse on the solstice day which makes this one special

Thats what I understood from the beginning.
Even if it will affect public relationships and goverment, personal relationships got to be number 1.

Maybe this chat window can comprehend the following.

The MOON card of Rider Waite, depicted the eclipse you iterate.

This is not an interpretation based upon feelings, it is a logical observation of intended codes, for you to readily espy.

You will find the crayfish (dung-beetle) is pushing the orb of the sun along the ecliptic (yellow road) at the DARK RIFT of the Milky Way (indicated by the mountains and the towers) at the NEXUS of Scorpio, which is flanked either side of this ecliptic by the WOLF (LUPUS) and the FOX (VULPECULA).

Consult your asro-globes!
