The Winter Solstice this year includes not only a full moon, but a full lunar eclipse over North America peaking on December 20/21 around midnight about fifteen hours before the actual Solstice. This is a very auspicious time according to numerology and astrology. It will be spectacular since dust from volcanic eruptions may cause the moon to have a red or orange hue and the dark moon will make it easier to see the remnants of last weekends meteor shower.
Ocean at deafpagancrossroads.com beat me to the punch and has a wonderful post called “Solstice Eclipse and Its Symbology” along with a series on the symbolism and traditions of the Winter Solstice and Yule. So this blog will focus on numerological significance of this rare event and how you can participate in and view the eclipse without leaving your warm home.
The Winter Solstice Eclipse will peek around midnight on December 21 so let’s look at that date. 12/21/2010 Please note that I am not a professional numerologist though I regularly use it for divination and to plan rituals.
(12) 1 +2 = 3 (21) 2 + 1 = 3 (2010) 2 + 1 = 3 or 20 + 10 = 30 or 3
3 + 3 + 3 = 9
Nine (9) is the triple three, the complete picture of three worlds: spiritual, physical, intellectual. Its planetary correspondence is the moon.
Zeros (0) usually represent overcoming the material world or infinity so they aren’t necessarily calculated in numerology. However; some variations do.
There you have it. On the Wheel of the Year we are turning to the season of light. We faced mortality at Samhain, now we seek to strengthen our spirit. During an eclipse, what is hidden is then revealed. Out of the darkness comes the eternal light. This is a powerful opportunity to bring into balance our spiritual, physical, and intellectual being.
