Lunar Eclipse – December 21, 2010

Filed in News by on December 13, 2010 • views: 17293

This full moon in Gemini is very significant both astronomically and astrologically. First of all, having both Brahmins (Jupiter and Venus) powerful is a good thing. However, the Nakshatras of Mula and Ardra are pretty transformative/destructive sections of the sky – 911 happened the last time the Nodes were in the Ardra/Mula axis.

The Moon passing from Mrigashira to Ardra Nakshatra is the same transit that happened on 911, Hurricane Katrina, The Tsunami and many other natural tragedies.

I discuss these things in great detail in this video.

    This video is brilliant & loaded. I had to pause several times because the energy was too potent. All week long I've been hearing this quiet voice at night, "It's already 2012 baby!" (no shit!) Now I understand the impact & rarity of this lunar eclipse given its alignment of sun, earth & galactic core. When the video progresesd to 911, katrina,it got stuck! I tried to post a remark and it got lost. Probably just the energy of invoking the Ardra energy is earth-shattering enough.

  2. Vanessah says:

    Excellent presentation of what's happening and the video wasn't too long! I could have listened for hours actually 🙂

    "are things changing? … HELLO!" LOL like…it's pretty damn evident isn't it?

    And to have Guru and Shukra stationed in such strong positions during this time to sustain our faith and give comfort and healing- it seems too perfect…as in, only God consciousness could create this phenomenon. I am awed by it – the expansive scope of astronomical events taking place on Dec 21st. I also feel what you are saying is true about the Mayan calendar; I am no Mayan scholar either, but Truth is ringing through like aums. I think this time IS the birth of a New Sun.

    I feel focused and strengthened after watching and thank you for the centering thoughts to hold within -something to hang on to during this time of massive transformation – and a calm center to be within when the Lights are eclipsed, when Rahu and Ketu make their presence strongly known in a very visible manner, albeit briefly. Still, it's very profound.

    Namaste ~

    Thank you for the enlightening presentation of this transformative time. During 911 Hurricane Katrina and Tsunami you mentioned above, was there an eclipse involved at those time? I'm assuming not. Which further intensifies this day on 12/21/2010. 10fold.

    I can really appreciate your enthusiasm here.

    Good thing Venus is in Libra (connecting

    us with others in a harmonious way) as well as Jupiter in Pisces (giving us hope and higher sense/philosophies to follow).

    All those planet in Mula Nakshatra…… Up Rooting, Mars, Sun Mercury, even Pluto. Perhaps (Mars) strengthening/confidence in Mula to uproot and perhaps bring about, new individualized power (Sun) and transformative ways (Pluto) into our life. Although, Mercury retrograde will create some delays here.

    Certainly thats how it always is in my life.

    Events will not go as planned.

    I'm just a beginning student, just having some fun with the ideas and such……We will have to wait and see…

    Thanks for sharing the astronomy aspect and history as well. Great Video Sam



  4. Britt Magadini says:

    Fascinating! I have felt this, and now it validated. I'm so curious about what will become…

    Thanks for your expertise and effort to convey

  5. Wende says:

    One more thing, I forgot to mention the Moon transit going from Mrigashira to Ardra. Nakshatra, thats the trigger pt.

    I'm hoping for a positive transformation in our world. I know

    my Jupiter/and Saturn is off in LALA land. have a good one


  6. Michael says:

    I am very grateful to you for this explanation of the lunar eclipse: It sounds major! I hope that my loved ones & I, as well as humanity of course (!), will be able to be spiritually centered enough to cope with whatever comes. Since my lady friend's sun is Sag & my sun is Gem; I think that we might especially need to be cautious at this time? Like yourself, we also live on the Calif. Pacific Coast!

  7. Isani says:

    Thank you. This is so helpful. I have been pondering the significance of this upcoming eclipse and trying to understand the significance. This is so helpful, and I wouldn't mind you continuing with a part two. Mahalo Nui Loa.

  8. kylie says:

    This comes at such a potent time for so many. It's so helpful to hear what is going on celestially and to remember we are not alone in our process and that it is universal what we all experience. Tears have really been welling up for me…Ardra speaking. Thank you Sam for your clarity.

  9. Anoep says:

    This is a great explanation of a major event Sam, once in every 25600 years! My Moon is Saggitarius in Moola Nakshatra, so I'm quite qurious what's going to happen..

  10. Juan Antonio says:

    Not to diminish any of your previous videos at all, but this one is truly powerful. Certainly, having the sidereal positions in Mula/Ardra nakshatras axis accounts for your excellent comments but then again it’s impossible to ignore the cosmic ‘joke’ of doing it during the tropical winter solstice! Thanks Sam and keep posting more videos.

  11. Arjun says:

    Thanks a lot for sharing a solid study on this important topic. This unique combnation of planets create a stron Yoga at tne sky. Let us be inspired by this wise study and go deeper in our sadhana.

  12. Rosanna Tufts says:

    A couple of years ago I was exhibiting at a new-age trade show, and I heard one of the other exhibitors mention that she thought the whole transformation process was accelerated, and starting early. I knew her hunch was right, but now you have substantiated it. Me, I've been using these energies in a very Mercurial way, re-asserting order out of chaos in both my body (by ferreting out endocrine disruptors) and my living enviroment (by cleaning up) so I have a strong foundation for my career to take off like a rocket in 2011, as soon as the divorce is final on Jan. 14.

  13. Allison says:

    I understand now. Thank You!

  14. anna says:

    bloody marvelus

    have been downloading info about,other dimensions ,outside time and space, too much to recount here,but there is no such thing as an accident or coincidence ,as all systems are changing about now,chinese, mayan, hopi ,vedic,etc.

    love & light


  15. shantie says:

    very very good!

  16. Wow! Awesome, Sam! This is the best explanation of this coming eclipse and the Winter Solstice that I have heard. Thank you for the information. I will pass it along to my friends. It all makes so much sense. We all know time is speeding up now so 12/21/2010 is the time of transformation of consciousness. I think I will plan that day to be in prayer and meditation, and I would encourage others to do the same. Thanks so much!

  17. Sybille says:

    amazing…I could hear more as well! How about a second part?

  18. Rosanna Tufts says:

    BTW: Is there anything in the literature about this also being the end of the Kali Yuga?

  19. Fernando says:

    Time for a new era..

  20. Natasha says:

    Sam, this was excellent. I often tune-in to your updates, and agree with many that you were startlingly clear and amazingly articulate here. I don't know if you use the nakshatra rulers, but is it also significant that Ardra is ruled by Rahu and Mula is ruled by Ketu- bringing the nodes doubly into the forefront? Many blessings to you for your work and teaching.


  21. Valarie Corwin says:

    Myan focus on a conjunction of Venus, not sure why, but 2012 there is a rare Venus eclipse viewed only in Southern hemisphere that is important. Something about the pentagram of Venus' transit, and what that means to Myan mysticism.

  22. Valarie Corwin says:


    My humble thoughts:

    It might be interesting to focus on where Saturn is as the eclipse happens and relationships to "time" in Vedic studies, for the Myan calendar reset. I am not adept enough to see subtle natures of aspects.

    Also, it seems interesting to study Venus with regard to ushering in the sacred feminine principals may have significance.

    Below are a few dates that seemed important to some Myan adepts:

    Chinese: year of the Snake.

    13 sign zodiac it is the 10th constellation that has been removed. The sun moves through Ophiuchus, secret of the elixir of life from the serpent he holds (Serpens Caput). The twisted serpent is still the symbol of the medical profession.

    Maya belief of a serpent rope eminates from the galactic centre and associated to it a wise being, brought forth at the end of great cycles of time, in that very direction constellation named for the serpent and a connection with healing wisdom.

    (I don't know if this is true according to the sidereal perspective.)


    Kali Yuga citing that 3102 B.C. is the mirror of 2013 A.D, the Mayan new cycle of time.

    Hindu new year or Varsha-Pratipada will occur on April 11th 2013.

    Tzolkin day 9-Earth, Gregorian 03-11-2013.


    Maybe something in this quick gathering from a fast google on:

    Rare venus transit, Dec 21 2012, elcipse of Venus on sun

    Be well and thank you.

  23. Katherine says:

    Thanks for posting, as always…extremely interesting. Love the astronomical lesson to coincide with the astrological; galactic center/solstice/eclipse …Its happening within 2 degrees of my Natal Jupiter in Mrigashira…Hmmm…I'm praying for enlightenment 🙂

  24. Valarie Corwin says:

    Feel like an excursion, check out:

  25. Gerardji says:

    Rossana– Maharishi Mahesh Yogi told us the Mayan calendar is "a little off". Also, the Vedic literature mentions something called the Samavartaka Fire which cleanses the Earth. This is supposed to occur two months after the Mayan calendar end-date, but someone calculated this using one of many calendars in Vedic studies. It could have been the Solar or Lunar calendar or one of many others. In any event, according to Maharishi, the Mayan calendar end date is "a little off".

  26. Tina Erwin says:

    Excellent! Well put. Thank you for sharing. Validates many things I have already observed.

  27. Karina Weil says:


    I am eternally grateful for your ever present generosity. Your video was not long at ll by any standards, and given the eminence and importance of the content. You are a Divine messenger teaching us, and urging us to reconnect with the Divine.

    Reading the posts was equally enriching. Words is a poor medium to express my gratitude.

    BTW, Valerie, Saturn is in Virgo right now, opposing Jupiter in Pisces.

    Sam, do you intend to respond to the posts and/or follow up on the video?

  28. mbd says:

  29. Rahul says:

    Thanks a lot Sam

    Thanks a ton for sharing this video. Anyone who has not read "The Ascendant: The 108 Planets of Vedic Astrology" Go and read

  30. Rahul says:

    Hello Sam

    Love to watch your vedios please post the secound part make it longer.. thanks a lot

  31. Pat says:

    I read recently that 12/21 will be a major portal of expansion…what the Spiritual Hierarchy refers to as a "wormhole from the old to the new". "The illuminated energies from this (eclipse}portal will besiege those who choose to release themselves from the old and willfully embrace the new."

  32. patmac says:

    I am using this in my "preprogramming the eclipse" session tonight, on kartron FM linked thru, and on the Returning the One session on th eclipse of 2010.

    Your information is helping to make the divine accessible here. Thank you Sam and your Gift of Wisdom.

  33. Tanya says:

    Precious! Along with the brilliantly presented information (which is fascinating and scary at the same time) there's a solid

    anchoring guidance. Thank you Sam.

  34. Wende says:

    Hi SAm.

    I just had to listen to the video again to grasp everything thats going on here. Interesting concept Body/Mind/Soul, all coming together. Represented by the Sun, Moon and Earth,

    all too cool.

  35. Thanes says:

    Thank you for the infor, very helpful

  36. mondiale says:

    Thank you, Sam.

    This was wonderful (a slight problem with the video functiononly, but in some senses it actually allowed more time to digest the information.)

    I greatly appreciate the way you explain things and this makes a lot of sense.

  37. Chris says:

    Sam, I'm so grateful for you making this video and sharing this with all of us. This is an amazing time that we are in and the alignment of our mind, body and soul resonates so much inside. I'll be watching your video again and again to simply absorb all that you shared……peace and light

  38. bettina zwander says:

    Dear Sam,

    luckily I had a chance to watch Your video! You are a fenomenal teacher and I just can recommend this side to others! I thank You for sharing all Your knowledge and wisdom with us.

    Now I understood way more….

    It all makes sense!

    Thank You


  39. Alexandra says:

    It's freaking me out a bit.. My life and my kids lives will actually change that day.

    I've took the decision a few weeks ago that I need to move back from Hawaii to Switzerland on December 20th. But we are leaving after 11pm..and will spend actually 23h traveling around the planet..spending our time in the air..

    It is definitively THE BIGGEST CHANGE IN MY LIFE (PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY).. and I can't believe that we are actually doing it on that special day!

  40. Alexandra says:

    and like Bettina says.. thank you for your great video and explanation.. it really makes sense to me too!

  41. Doreen Smith says:

    Dear Sam,

    I greatly enjoyed your presentation. It wasn't too long at all. My friend Nan turned me on to tune in. This is something millions of people need to tune in to for greater understanding of our times. I too have felt for a long time now that more was going on astrologically and spiritually speaking than I could understand. Thank you for making sense of it all for me and many others questioning "What in the world is going on?" I feel that those of us who tuned in to your brillant presentation should tune in everyone we know so we can all be prepared in our heart, soul and mind for the "New Heaven and new Earth" to come. Thank you so very much for all the time and preparation it took to bring this important understanding to us. May God bless you and us all.

    Peace, Love and Joy always!

    Doreen Smith

  42. georgia says:

    one of the very most pertinent pieces of info. i am reeling a bit as my natal moon is in ardra so life has been very intense for a while. the understanding this brings is invaluable. heading toward pancha kaarma with great awareness. THANK YOU!,


  43. Lhynn Nevarez says:

    Excellent video! As I listened to you explain the building energy- it all made sense -personally and in the world. Thanks for this great video…

    you are a great teacher Sam. Thanks! I posted to my facebook page!

  49. Paul says:

    The last time this happened (eclipse on winter solstice) was 456 years ago.

  51. andrea says:

    awesome as always. You get better and more clear everytime. It is so clear that the subject speaks to you and you do so much study. Thank you for translating it into language even those of us not studied can understand without dumbing it down.

    Happy Solstice!

  52. dharmabuilt says:

    excellent and very compelling. i've been feeling very agitated (stressed) as well as very drained as we approach the 21st. my question is around the winter solstice of 2012. i was under the impression that ALL the planets in our solar system are going to align on the galactic plane – therefore a much more significant astrological event. is this NOT the case?

    i love your talks – they are very informative and appreciated by many out here in NYC.

  53. Nick says:

    Excellent!! Very informative.. I have around 3300 people on my site who would love to hear your stuff..

    Thanks alot well done

  54. Alea says:

    Wow. Yes, this is right on. Thank you.

  55. Pat says:

    Namaste Sam, and thank you for this awesome lecture. It definitely touched something inside of me, kind of knowing/sensing all this since long time.

    Tears in my eyes…that's the indicator for me, when there is something big and significant revealed to me.

    Thanks for explaining it so well with so much passion. Not too long at all, don't worry. I'm going to watch it one more time.

    I'll be at a solstice fire gathering, with son and husband as every solstice, and connecting with Mother Earth through heart and ceremony.

    Much love and gratitude, Pat

  56. Rita says:

    Hello Sam,

    Just noticed the post on fb by Mikael King, and for someone who gets lost with

    left brain and details like this usually, I love your straight manner, your diagram and hand gestures for visual support of explanation, your passion, getting to the point to bring the point home, your explanation of who does what so I could follow, simplifying things….ie…two houses in their elements…ruling…I heard more than I have before not being scientifically oriented. As an Emotional Healer, I am very attuned and extremely sensitive to the energies and aligned with my own inner transformative changes, so this was great for my other senses to understand. Thank you very much. I hear you! With Appreciation and Love Rita

    P.S. One question: What time did you say the light switch will be turned on? My partner and I live in White Rock, B.C. and we do healing work here. He is a Medical Intuitive and our work together is pretty cool and the transformation that is occurring. I am aligned and excited!

  57. marielynne says:

    This sure sounds like the cosmic wave we have been preparing to ride. Thanks for the heads up. Kawabunga! I am so thankful for your good work. Namaste.

  58. Dan says:

    Sam – good info. Nicely explained. Very timely.

  59. jeffrey says:

    i dont understand why no one elese is noticing the signifigance of this allignment, and how obviously rare it is and how it must be connected with the mayan astrology.

  60. Jenna says:

    Hey Sam!

    That was great!

    So nice to hear your down -to- earth

    explanations of time through the dimensions of awareness and our galactic

    alignment. When I was in Peru many years ago I imagined what people might have felt long ago to feel that sense of alignment with ourselves and our galaxy at Machu Pichu. Now here in the boon docks of central Michigan, I have been x-country skiing almost every day this winter thru Amish Country and listening very quietly to the Earth, to the sense of spirit coming into itself/ourselves. Listening to you this evening I felt a tear and laughter at the same time. Halaluha,hugs to you…& …happy holidays! Namaste, Jenna

  61. leonie says:

    Hi Sam,


    The info is clear and much appreciated.

  62. Anne says:

    WOW! You explained it so very well, you really articulate wonderful. I know for me its been really wild this week. I have been so emotional/crying and seeing so much clearly for my path. Thanks so much. 😉

  63. Hi Sam – just a note of appreciation to you. Great work.

    It is nice to know I am not the only one speaking out about the astronomical facts regarding 2012 (so much miss-info circulating out there) – not only about this Dec 21, 2010 eclipse being far more significant than Dec 2012 astronomical events, but along with the fact that the precessional cross / solstice alignment was more exact in 1998, yet people make it out to be unique to Dec 2012.

    Cheers, Nick Anthony Fiorenza

  64. Suzanne says:

    Dear Sam,

    You are an incredible teacher! I happened upon your video just today while researching the signifigance of the eclipse on the winter solstice. I had NO IDEA is was such a hugely impactful event—-and it bring much light to some dreams and meditations I've had since Thanksgiving—one incredibly powerful of three tidal waves. They were just as you said–very personal and emotional for me–not like a prophetic dream for the planet or anything. I a couple of questions:

    #1. What is your advice on how to gracefully move through this intense period? (GROUND, Ground, ground???)

    #2. My personal inner shifts have all been about an almost abrupt focus and craving for a connect with the Divine Feminine—for a decade this has been an intellectual area of study, but all of a sudden now it's a path of devotion (I mean within the past 2 weeks!) Any comment on that?

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your wise teaching and sharing your obvious passion for astrology with us!

  65. Lyvonne says:

    so eloquently put for my regular person brain! i would love to watch the 2hr version next. so, excited about the powerful energy happening around us. thanks!

  66. Carol says:

    Thank you Sam! Your tying in of the Vedic scriptural references, Nakshatra symbolism myths, legends and present day correspondences is so very interesting!! Truly a delightful and inspiring presentation.

  67. darlene kyurn says:

    Great info. Thanks

  68. Elaine Leon says:

    Wow! Your explanation was very clear! I recently started studying about vedic astrology, and reading a book can be so confusing. Yesterday, I started looking into 2012 for the first time. Today, I wanted to learn more about vedic views on the lunar eclispe… I had no idea that they two were related! I'm feeling Jupiter & Venus' affects… I've been craving spiritual, astrological, & relationship knowledge this month (a lot more than usual.) Quick question… do you know anything about the poles switching in regards to astrology/astronomy? Thank you for this video. I'm now following your blog.

  69. Lisa says:

    Now I understand what is happening! Thank you for the clear picture and understanding of what this all means.

    I am a Gemini and have been feeling so much of what you have been talking about, but not only feeling it, I'm seeing it with everyone around me! There are root changes going on in so many lives of those I am close to. Transformations that are big!! Plus look at the weather issues just this past week!! Great work and thank you so much for posting this.

  70. Gareth says:

    This is very clear and interesting. Thank you. I studied Jyotish back in the 90's and I find it very fascinating.

  71. Rima Sahdev says:

    fabulous!! enlightening, I totally taken up with what you said, and it has really made me think. It's charged up the consciousness to be aware of every subtle transformation that is happening.

    a Big Thank you.

    Amita Mohan.

  72. Girish says:


    Much gratitude and many blessings for sharing your insights. I'm so inspired I'm going to watch it again!



  73. Girish says:

    Hi Sam,

    Much gratitude to you for sharing your insights. I enjoyed it so much I'm going to watch it again!



  74. Jyoti says:

    Hello to all from southern Cali (San Diego) on the evening of Dec. 21. Have we gone into Ardra yet? Feels like it! Fortunatly I'm on high ground.

    Great video Sam, listened to it twice.

  75. mazz says:

    that is amazing!! your cosmic explanation validated my experiences in my current existence,
    thank you for sharing your great gift.


  76. Monika says:

    Hi Sam,


    I don't recall if you've mentioned this or not. But apparently there was world wide earth shaking for four days during the Lunar Eclipse… It shook again around 13 Jan.

    Exciting !

    Namah Shivay
