First off, I would like to talk about some details of eclipses that is pertinent to this article. During an eclipse we have the masculine the Sun and feminine the Moon energies engaging in a process of one obscuring the other. With Capricorn and Cancer being involved, this specific idea of breaking up structure is the perfect basis of understanding of this eclipse.
Capricorn is related to creating an everlasting form that can weather whatever environmental changes take place. Cancer, being opposite Capricorn in the zodiac, brings about the opposite polarity of this theme. We can therefore see that change of some kind, or more so the desire for it, will be a giant theme. What really brings the energy of these signs to the forefront is that the planets that rule these signs are placed in their respective signs with Moon in Cancer and Saturn in Capricorn.
In Cancer we also have the Moon being conjunct the shadowy planet Rahu the north node of the Moon. These are the two necessary factors relating to the Moon for creating an eclipse that we would expect to see together. In general, whenever we have the conjunction of Rahu added to the Moon, there is a strong impulsive desire to break down borders and take ideas to the next level. It is also very commonly related to strong desires, intense changes of emotions, or any type of sudden shifts of the mind. With this energy in the sign of Cancer, its about wanting to make a drastic leap away from an established norm.
Firstly, in Capricorn we have the Sun conjunct Ketu aka the south node of the Moon. These are the other necessary components for an eclipse that are related to the Sun.

It represents an old structured paradigm that was based upon what has worked for the individual before but its usefulness has come to an end. One of the other planets involved is that of Saturn, as I brought up earlier, who rules the sign of Capricorn. What this shows us with this idea of breaking out of the box is that this particular way of living or thinking was one that was well established and functioned well.

However, with Saturn there is a tendency to want to just stick with what works regardless of its actual efficiency. Mercury is the planet of constant refinement and typically its presence brings efficiency as is all about finding better options. However, Mercury also adds another dimension here. Sun, Saturn, and Ketu who are all conjunct Mercury, are all known in Vedic Astrology to be cruel planets. This means that they typically put stress on Mercury to perform its agenda.
