All of these events will impact on our subtle bodies - our emotional - physical - spiritual and mental bodies. There is always stress around this time of the year as people face family members they may not chose to spend time with where it not for the hoildays. These energies last until New Years Day - in most cases. Do withthem what you will. Some people use the time to heal issues - others to create new issues. Others are now able to better understand those we have karma with - the soul group we experience with as we grew up - in a different way. Stay cool and allow....... Do not preach metaphysics to people who do not connect or may not be ready. Actually it is best not to preach at all. Just have fun as best you can. This will be a rough holiday season for those out of work and have no money for presents and the usually holiday expenses. Whatever you are doing - try to enjoy the time - be helpful - stay balanced - don't overeat and get sick - and don't sabotage.

Solar Eclipse for Beginners
The gift of a Solar Eclipse is to bring our new awareness into sharper focus, to reconfirm, recommit and redirect, if necessary, at the time of the New Moon. In the best scenario, our new patterns and best intentions are in place and will be charged with the energy of this alignment. The hallmark of Sagittarius is learning through experience of the world, often through travel. We might use this time to consider journeys of the mind or body, or both. We have a continuation from the November 9 eclipse of Mars in Pisces opposing Jupiter in Virgo and Saturn in Cancer opposing Chiron in Capricorn, so issues uncovered earlier in the month will be highlighted for possible resolution at this time. This is a Total Eclipse of the Sun, visible as a partial eclipse from Antarctica, Australia, New Zealand and the southern end of South America. The path of totality crosses Antarctica.
The Solar Eclipse on November 23 will be in the sign Sagittarius. This is the 4th and final eclipse of 2003. Solar eclipses are about creation through action and are more strongly felt than lunar eclipses. The Sun is masculine in astrology thus causing a Solar Eclipse to involve involve the men in your life (lover, husband, father, brother, male boss) and, also, issues that you control will play a big role in whatever takes place for you during the eclipse period (and up to two months after the eclipse date). The eclipse is also coinciding with a new moon, meaning a new beginning will emerge in the particular area of life ruled by the house where Sagittarius is placed in your natal chart.
