Over the weekend, I published a couple of posts about how little the lunar eclipse would affect me because of where it was occurring in my chart. Now it’s time to discuss the upcoming solar eclipse.
On December 14, the moon conjoins the sun at 23°08″ Sagittarius — just 39″ away from an exact opposition with my natal Jupiter.
A solar eclipse in my third house should be a good time for me to embark on a new writing project, or simply a good time for me to speak my mind. However, with the opposition to Jupiter, the first thing that popped into my head when I thought about the aspect was the line “Don’t let your mouth overload your capabilities” that Dolly Parton sings in “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.” For some reason, those lyrics have stuck with me for almost my entire life. I was a teenager when that movie came out.
It’s funny that I realized that this alignment of planets is about to occur on the same day that social media is being flooded with articles about how humble Dolly Parton is. She’s a Capricorn, like me. Maybe I should take this as a sign to take things down a notch. I’ll be the first person to admit that I can be full of myself — that’s kind of my shtick. With my self-confidence soaring now that all the tension in my horoscope is abating, however, it wouldn’t be difficult for me to stick my foot in mouth while telling everyone in my orbit how fabulous I am.
I’m glad that I looked ahead to see what December has in store for me. For an astrologer, I don’t do a very good job of predicting my own future because it’s not in my nature to fret over things that might never happen. With my Cancer moon, I’m far more likely to dwell upon mistakes I’ve already made.
Anyway, I’m going to take Dolly Parton’s advice and try to be more humble. It shouldn’t be that hard for me because I’m good at everything . . .
