Though I am in the middle of a two-week Shamanic Breathwork Training, I am taking my one day off to go see the Annular Solar Eclipse which happens to be the most visible out of the entire world, in Singapore… Since I’m so close by in Bali… and since I’m an eclipse chaser, I decided to hop over for the day!
One main pull other than the eclipse is to go meet up with my mentor, teacher and friend, Daniel Giamario who will be there with his wife also to view the eclipse… Daniel will be coming back to Bali in May for a Shamanic Astrology Relationships Training. Stay tuned for more news on that soon.
… So I’m here in Singapore just for the day, then I’m back to Bali to finish off this beautiful Breathwork training with 24 amazing souls going super deep in their own healing process… and to finish off the year… finish off the decade!
Happy New Year everyone. Happy New Moon. Happy Solstice, Merry Xmas, Happy Hanukah and Happy Holy Daze!

Annular Solar Eclipse
New Moon in Capricorn
The last new moon of the decade!… The last everything of the decade 😉 …. Indeed we are closing out the two thousand and teens with a bang.
This new moon is in the sign of Capricorn. The sign of practical, earth wisdom and consistent contribution to culture, creating and building today for a bright tomorrow.
This is a clear preview of this next year… 2020 vision includes one of the most rare and powerful alignments of our entire lifetime including Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter meeting up or conjunct in this very sign of Capricorn!
Jupiter is very close to this new moon and sun conjunction right now which expands and amplifies the Capricorn energies at this time… Indeed a view of coming attractions as this is not just a regular new moon… oh no… this last new moon of the decade and the first of the solar year, happens to be an Annular Solar Eclipse!!!
An eclipse of the sun always brings out the shadows… Quite literally, as the sun is shining down on the earth as usual during the daytime, the moon actually crosses directly in front of our view of the sun, therefore blocking the sun’s light for a few minutes. Things actually go dark like night time, you can see the stars for a moment, the animals quiet down and it can even get cold outside… Spooky!
Metaphorically and energetically an eclipse like this can bring out the human shadows, it can stir up what’s beneath the surface. The parts of yourself that are not normally seen or looked at… With the Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter meeting this coming year, it’s a similar story!…. Think a break down, crumbling and composting of the forms and structures that are no longer working… The process has begun with this eclipse.
I am in Singapore to see this Eclipse. It’s best visible in only a few places in the world such as south India, parts of the Middle East, Some of Northern Indonesia and especially Singapore where I am to here to see it!.. I will let you know how it goes.
If you are somewhere to view it know that an Annular Eclipse is very similar to a total eclipse, where the moon crosses perfectly in front of the sun. Though because the moon goes towards and away from earth as it circles and spiral around it, the moon will be too small to completely cover the sun. This leaves a ‘ring of fire” around the moon… Pretty cool!…The darkness is surrounded by light.
Lastly, not lastly, perhaps you could say firstly, this is the first new moon after the recent Solstice on December 22nd. Many cultures saw the solstice or the new moon following solstice as the new year.
Happy new year!… A much more potent time to project your potentials into the ethers… A better time is now than the calendar date of January 1st to set your new years resolutions… Now at the new moon is the best time for your ceremonies, concentrations and meditations for this coming year.
May your intentions be to your highest potential…
