This New Moon Solar Eclipse is on January 4, 2011 in the constellation of CAPRICORN ruled by Saturn. Saturn was the name given to the Roman god of agriculture. The name Saturn is believed to derive from the Latin ‘satus’ (sowing) and Saturn was thought of as a seed-god. And as we know seeds must be sown at their proper times and harvest can only occur at the time of their fruition. Accordingly, the saying “We Reap what we Sow”. Therefore Saturn is esoterically linked to Karma.
It is believed that the most destructive process that leads to bad Karma, begins with the ‘evil eye’ of temptation because “What the eyes sees the heart desires”. It is suggested that this is why we have two eyes in order to constantly discern what to accept in life, and what to reject. As hard as it is, we must direct our (‘evil’) eye towards ourselves to subdue our ego, while directing our (‘good’) eye towards perfecting outer reality in any way we can, to heal our world.
