January 4 brings us another eclipse, the first of four solar eclipses to occur in 2011. I have compiled here a collection of astrological and energetic reports concerning the planetary configuration of this coming
don't think that because this Solar Eclipse is partial, only visible in specific regions, only covering a portion of the Sun, that its energy is not.extrremely powerful. It is a 'Mega-Event', teeming, buzzing with energy!
Pathway of Peace
January 4th is a Triple Star Eclipse :
(1) New Moon - New Beginnings, Planting 'Seeds'
(2) Quadranti Meteor Shower : Bringing Akash-Consciousness Units for Enhanced Manifestation via Sky-Fire Mini Comets
(3) Solar Eclipse- Mega Blast of Energy for Transition, Vision & Inner Search
All eclipses, especially the ones over the next 24 months are omnipotent in reach & effect. They are light-coded and are shifting the rapidly transitioning 144-Crystalline Grid and the Earth & Humanity in kind. Eclipses, you see, whether partial or total effect the planetary grid system in its entirety, and the resulting energy pulses are evenly distributed over the entire planet.
You recently experienced an enormous energy surge on the Solstice-Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse of December 21st, with Mercury in retrograde. Mercury completes the current retro- backspin on December 30th, and begins forward movement just in time for the Solar Eclipse New Moon Comets on January 4th.
In a very real , very purposeful construct, the coded, embellished Eclipse of January 4th completes the energetic labyrinth that began on December 21st. It is the virtual Light at the End of the Tunnel. This energy is offered to Humanity and is a wonderful time to refresh, to vision, to manifest intent.
You made it through the rollercoaster of the Grand Cardinal Cross and Mega Solstice of 2010. Not to say that 2011 will be less potent than 2010, in fact it will amp up a notch. The energies of 2011 have another 5 eclipses, 2 more lunar and 3 more solar, potent eclipses and equinoxes and perhaps the most magnanimous, the TDP ( Triple Date Portal) of the 11-11-11. But because of the obstacle course of 2010, you grew stronger, and you will mange the upshifts of 2011 a bit easier. In 2011 you start clean ! And all the wiser. Perfect start. Use this energy...Seize the Day!

I now find myself traveling in an external Merkaba Vehicle of Light to the Ascension Seat of the Ray of Solar Service, into this beautiful copper-gold flame of Light, Overlighted by Helios and Vesta.
I now find myself in this Healing Chamber of Light within the Solar Core, letting go of any issues I may still be working with, and releasing old karmic patterns, false beliefs and judgments within this sacred healing space amplified through the vibration of all twelve rays with a focus on Love-Wisdom.
I now bring a focus to my Highest Potential as a co-creator and Master Being; allowing myself to step into a deeper level of my service work, and bringing with it greater joy, abundance, spiritual leadership, passion, creativity, responsibility, and Love.
And now, I experience the primary quality of Manifestation through this copper-gold flame of Light, merging through these timelines into this Now, with all the gifts and skills I need to magnetize, co-create and manifest a reality of One Unity Consciousness.

Solar Eclipse January 2011 – Seeking Eros
The Solar Eclipse on 4 January 2011 is at 13°39′ Capricorn. It is conjunct the fixed star Ascella is in the constellation Sagittarius, the Kabalists associate it with the tarot card . Presumably because of the Cupid above them drawing his bow and arrow like the archer. The word Sag means ‘To seek out’. To seek out a mate perhaps?
(incidentally-here is a link to an article posted on word-haven describing a keynote address given by Marc Gafni in which he addresses the sad loss of the erotic in our lives, and methods to recapture eros in 2011)
Affirmations for the energy of the New Moon in Capricorn
- I am industrious. I take on tasks that require considerable planning and work.
- I am patient. I work steadily to produce rewards that are long in coming -- but worth the wait.
- I am responsible. I meet my routine commitments, even when progress is hard to see.
- I am organized. I keep track of my obligations ... and fulfill them reliably and well.
- I am ambitious. I want "a piece of me and my talents" to remain ... a testament to my presence.

and here for the full article on the New Moon Capricorn Solar Eclipse posted on Crystal Wind quoted below. I found much practical advice regarding Saturn, Mercury, Pluto, Mars, Neptune & Chiron here I think is important to share:
“Do what you gotta do.”
A little effort will go a long way, too.
Mercury in Sagittarius, we may find it more useful to focus on the big picture and not get caught up in details. Still, if you’re doing detailed work, you’ll need to take care not to miss small mistakes – yet another reason to work at a steady pace. This applies to driving, too. If you’re going to be late for an appointment, don’t speed up and take risks. Simply accept that you’re going to be late. It happens.
In any case,
Saturn clearly is in charge of this eclipse, with the Sun, Moon, Pluto and Mars in Capricorn, the sign Saturn rules. Saturn himself is exalted in Libra, which is why I think the square is going to manifest more as tension that pushes us to move mountains rather than the kind of stress that puts us on overload and takes a few years off our lives, with nothing to show for it.
There’s another configuration in the eclipse chart that has nothing to do with Saturn and is quite interesting. Venus, who is now past her post-retrograde shadow phase and in new territory, makes a perfect square with
Neptune and Chiron in Aquarius, and she also makes a very tight trine with Uranus and Jupiter, which are exactly conjoined in Pisces. Neptuneand Uranus have remained in a close semi-sextile over the winter, and they’re in their last few months of mutual reception, until Uranus re-enters Aries in March.
There’s been so much going on this year with the cardinal T-square that we haven’t given a lot of attention to the mutual reception. But it has been an undercurrent, running through the T-square and everything we do.
Neptune and Chironrepresent healing on the collective level. But you can’t heal society unless and until you heal the individuals within it, and that’s where Uranus in Pisces comes in.
I’ve written a lot about the conjunction of Uranus and
Jupiter as indicators of major breakthroughs, but what is the source of these successes? As individuals, we’re awakening to higher consciousness. Uranus is sometimes called the “Awakener,” and Jupiter is associated with expanding the mind and, thus, spiritual advancement.
With Venus in close contact with these four bodies, we’d have to conclude that relationships are a big part of our awakening. Many clients over the past several months have come to me with questions about soul mates, or people they suspect they have a karmic connection with. I believe this to be absolutely the case. More and more of us are encountering souls we have known or will know in other lives. Whether we’re meeting them because we’re awakening, or we’re awakening as a result of meeting them, who can say? And does it really even matter?
Eclipses are windows on time, and with six eclipses in 2011, there will be lots of opportunities to sense what’s beyond the “reality” we see with our eyes.
The Sabian Symbol** for the Sun and Moon at 13°39′ Capricorn is an ancient bas-relief carved in granite, with the keyword FOUNDATION. This symbol is about the limitless potential in every moment. Put another way, you attract what you focus on and give energy to. If you intentionally place your thoughts and actions in a given direction, this is where you’ll go, by hook or by crook.
When our perception of the world changes, our external reality shifts to match it. Saturn, the lord of time, represents the process by which that reality comes into being.

New Moon Solar Eclipse Apothecary Suggestions
Capricorn is associated with the skeletal system, joints, and skin. Pay attention to these parts of the body and areas of health around the time of this New Moon.
Moisturize: This Capricorn New Moon Solar Eclipse provides a great opportunity to pay special attention to the skin. As Capricorn has a relatively drying energetic, taking the time to do a moisturizing treatment is a worthwhile wellness activity. If you rarely moisturize your skin, consider even just making an intention to apply body lotion or oil two times today (given that it’s a New Moon, doing so may help to plant the seeds for incorporating body moisturizing as a daily routine). If you already have a good moisturizing ritual, consider applying a nourishing mask; you can either find them in apothecaries or beauty stores, or consider making your own from ingredients such as avocados, honey, aloe vera, yogurt, and other nurturing food-based ingredients.
Turmeric: Capricorn is associated with the joints, body parts that often express inflammation, which can lead to pain and reduced mobility. One of the best anti-inflammatory compounds, and therefore a great item to promote rheumatic health, is the spice turmeric. While turmeric supplements are available, you can readily include this healing spice into your lifestyle by adding it to your recipes. Traditionally used as a foundation ingredient in curries and other Indian dishes, its earthy flavor can complement many dishes. You can purchase powdered turmeric in the spice section of the grocery store; fresh turmeric rhizome is available in Asian food markets.
In addition to the suggestions above, here is another perspective to the planetary configuration found on planetary apothecary.com
New Moons are auspicious monthly celestial events that usher in fresh cycles of creation and becoming. When they are also a Solar Eclipse–as today’s is–they hold additional power for manifestation.
This Capricorn New Moon Solar Eclipse provides a great opportunity to inventory how we spend our resources. It’s a great time to balance a checkbook, survey investments, or consider an aspect of financial planning we’ve yet to fully explore. Remember, though, our personal economy of resources is not just limited to our money but also includes our time, energy, and skills/talents, all of which comprise the capital that we can use to create a richer life. Whether we are allocating these efficiently–and whether they are generating additional assets or incurring liabilities for us–can be very prudent topics to survey during this eclipse. The answers can help us to create a stronger foundation upon which we can build our future.
Loyalty and commitment may also be important themes during this eclipse. What we may find ourselves looking at isn’t so much the concept of being dutiful but rather whether the people and institutions to which we have granted our allegiance are those that are worthy of it. Readjustments in relationships—involving how much we give and how much we allow ourselves to expect in return—may occur.
A New Moon Solar Eclipse signifies a time for beginnings. While something may inherently be coming to a close, there is great focus on the initiation of the new that it brings. Given that Capricorn is connected to the creation of structures of lasting value, we can use this auspicious time to consider what it is that we may want to build or accomplish in the coming year, especially in the next six months.
When there is heightened Capricorn energy circulating—as there is these days—it’s important to watch the tendency to become too rigid in our thinking or expectations. Maintaining a sense of flexibility while focusing on achieving practical outcomes can be a great path to follow during this time.
And we have some celestial assistance in this area today. That’s because in addition to it being a Solar Eclipse there are many other powerful alignments that can inspire fluidity and expansion.
Venus—the planet of beauty and grace—is very active today. She connects in with Neptune, Uranus, and Jupiter. These alignments offer us the ability to feel into a deep sense of love, expressing it boldly and in ways that we may not usually do.
Also today is the third and final conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus. This planetary pair greatly encourages the expansion of courage and innovative approaches to finding the wisdom center that resides within us. For more on the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction, see thisarticle.
Remember that eclipses are often accompanied by identifiable life-changing events that manifest around the time of these celestial happenings. Even if we can’t see an eclipse in the sky where we live, these events are renowned for being very powerful in the way in which they can impact our lives.
This month’s New Moon Solar Eclipse falls at 14 degrees of Capricorn (Sun and Moon). While everyone experiences the energies of a New Moon, if you have planets or pivotal points (i.e., Ascendant/Descendant or Nadir/Midheaven) around this degree in Capricorn or the other cardinal signs—Aries, Cancer, Libra—it may impact you more intensely.
