The December total Solar Eclipse will be taking place at the bottom of the earth over Antarctica. Only people living at the most southern tip of South American, Africa, Australia and New Zealand will glimpse the phenomenon. This December 2021 eclipse may re-ignite interest in what secrets lie within this remote icy landscape. The quincunx from Uranus may trigger some revelations.
This eclipse takes place in Sagittarius decan 2, which contains the constellations of Hercules and Ophiuchus. This decan seems to be about hidden knowledge and the importance of using it with integrity. It is vital to keep in contact with nature and respect natural law because if not, we could suffer grave consequences.
Solar Eclipse December 2021 Astrology
In my research, I found that the energy of Eris resonates very strongly with this decan, and all of 2021 Eris at 23º Aries has been square Pluto whenever it has hit 23º Capricorn. During this year, there has been such a focus on DNA and our health. So this eclipse may be an important one for the World Health Organisation and its plans for humanity.

Solar Eclipse In Sagittarius Decan 2
This solar eclipse on the 4th December 2021 is great for natural healing, especially for women’s health, genetics and midwifery. Breeding and DNA are a theme here as the symbol of the serpent so closely resembles the double helix, and the caduceus of Mercury is also highlighted. There is a certain amount of deception, too, however.
The forked tongue of the snake makes itself felt here in the form of jealousy or spiteful rumours. Sabik is generally problematic, so the lunar energy makes it hard to clarify truth from fiction.
What is certain, though, is the ability to conjure up fanciful stories! These tales are so dramatic and entertaining that, in the end, no one cares if they are factual or not. Maybe the fiction contains an element of truth that is eternal, like a myth.
The Moon has some dignity in Sagittarius 2. One of its unique abilities in this position is to unify disparate elements together to fulfil a specific goal. Moon in Sagittarius 2 is somewhat like a blinkered horse. That way, it won’t be tempted or detracted by the forbidden fruit of temptation.
Austin Coppock warns of Moon in Sagittarius 2’s “greater powers of concentration and focus.” as it also carries with it “the potential for monomania, and its gift of perseverance will fortify the fools quest as well as the sages errand.” At the same time, this solar eclipses healing potential is best channelled into a single goal. Otherwise, the Moon’s power here can sour Sagittarius 2’s healing medicine if it is allowed to run amok and not funnelled positively.
Solar Eclipse Tarot Card ~ 9 Of Wands
The tarot card associated with this decan is the Nine of Wands. “you are committed to a cause and prepared to do anything for it. You are going to take this all the way, and nothing or no one is going to stop you. You are determined to be the last man standing, the lone soldier, and know that you have the stamina it requires to resist and overcome all opposition. Stoic and enduring, your strength and beliefs are admirable indeed.” ~ teachmetarot.
This card describes the feeling of being willing to stand alone and be exiled if the cause is a righteous one. It shows the positive side of Sagittarius decan 2 in that it would rather be ethical and honest than popular.
Solar Eclipse Fixed Star ~ Alwaid
Robson lists this star as Rastaban. In the Arabic, it is still called Al Waid, which means “who is to be destroyed” ~ Bullinger Witness of the Stars. In a decan that emphasises healing and sorcery. This star shows the destructive side of magic. In southern Europe, there is a folk belief in the power of envy to curse someone through the evil eye. So this star could represent someone who is assassinated for being a threat to the establishment.
Alwaid at 11º Sagittarius is known as the “The Nebulous Star in the Dragon’s Eye”. It has a Saturn and Mars nature. Robson says, “It gives loss of property, violence, criminal inclinations and accidents.”
Solar Eclipse Crystal ~ Malachite
“Inherent in Malachite is lighter green eye-shaped forms or bands on its surface. These “eye stones,” believed to enhance great visionary powers, were used to ward off negative happenings. They were stones of security and protection for children, and their most remarkable association today is the ability to warn of impending danger by breaking into pieces.” 
Malachite has strong female energy, and it is known as the midwives stone. Since this decan is also associated with midwifery, I thought this crystal was ideal for this solar eclipse’s energy. Malachite helps with menstrual cramps and labour pains. If you are giving birth to the new you, this stone would be ideal for helping ease the transition.
Malachite helps flush out toxic emotions. It gives you the resolve to say no to emotional blackmailers in your life. This crystal helps you spot red flags in relationships and enables you to move on and step onto unfamiliar paths. (Sometimes it is NOT better to be stuck with the devil that you know!)
Malachite is associated with the pioneer spirit and travel, while at the same time, it carries the Scorpionic vibe of transformation. This Sagittarian eclipse’s thirst for adventure could send us down some deep rabbit holes, so this crystal is perfect for giving us the courage to face whatever creature we find lurking down there.
Solar Eclipse December 2021 Summary
The theme of Sagittarius decan 2 is usually healing and sorcery, while Alwaid in the dragon is not an easy star. But there is potent medicine here, which could ignite a miraculous transformation in the right hands. Some of those touched by this solar eclipse will realise their mission to remind us of the gnosis we have buried in our subconscious.
Like Eris, they could tempt us with the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge. (Many of these dragon types are YT banned, and you will find them lurking in Odysee.) This bite could result in wonderful revelations, or it could equally send people mad.
In the West, we tend to see dragons as aggressive, fire breathing monsters that must be slain. In various world religions, dragons rule the weather and water.
So appeasing the dragon was a good idea to avert floods. However, in China, dragons also represented the imperial Emperor and are still seen as a symbol of good luck and prosperity. So there is a flip side to this solar eclipse.
There are two options in the solar eclipse chart: the romantic minor grand trine with Mars, Neptune and Venus or Mars square Jupiter. The last option isn’t too terrible either, maybe just a touch of overconfidence or pushing far too close to the edge. So relatively speaking, compared to the ‘evil eye’ Algol Lunar eclipse, this solar eclipse might seem rather tame. Interesting how the eye theme is common to both eclipses. Maybe these eclipses will open our eyes in some way!
