LUNAR ECLIPSE in SAGITTARIUS:
Significant Transformation, Visionary Self-Alignment
LUNAR ECLIPSE in Sagittarius
26th May 2021: 7:14 am EST
This May’s Full Moon is coupled with a Lunar Eclipse, the start of the two-month Eclipse season. The Lunar Eclipse, a rare and special celestial event, is occurring in Sagittarius the fiery Archer. Sagittarius reaches for the stars and is quite a balanced being. The Archer aspect of their nature represents their philosophical, wise, and higher learning seeking self. The Centaur aspect (the other dual meaning of their ruling glyph/symbol) shows their balanced character between primal and spiritual. The Centaur is half human and half animal, and this signifies our desire at the time of the Lunar Eclipse to connect to our sexuality and primal needs, and our Higher Selves. We are both spirit and animal and this is a key underlying theme this May.
Lunar Eclipse breakdown: -
● A Lunar Eclipse is when the moon during its Full Moon phase emanates the earth’s shadow. Planet earth is placed perfectly between the Sun and the Moon, and this further gives the impression that the moon is larger than normal.
● The Moon thus appears to be ‘super,’ hence its name “Supermoon.” It is also known as a blood moon- specifically a Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse combined. The moon literally appears blood red in the sky from our view on earth. The Eclipse on May 26th is a blood moon and Supermoon.
Be bold, take risks, and dream big.
There is no greater time than now to be bold and reach for the stars. Ruled by planet Jupiter, Sagittarius is one of the most adventurous and courageous star signs. This independent fire sign is known for their optimistic, spirited and adventure-loving nature. Sagittarius dreams big and likes to home in on talents and potential pathways for success and big achievements- they’re brave and fearless when they set their minds to something. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius makes us all feel the energy of the Jupiter ruled ‘Archer.’ Jupiter’s influence also
makes this full moon sparkle with subtle energy that steers us towards connecting to our higher minds, the higher self and philosophies and spiritual ideals that lead to consciousness expansion. And new connections and opportunities!
Take time to reflect on your long-term goals. Energize your dreams, actual dreams you’ve had through sleep and dreams & aspirations. Don’t play it small as the stars are aligning in your favor.
A date with destiny…?
A Lunar Eclipse activates cosmic portals of energy and higher consciousness. The Lunar Nodes are activated during a Lunar Eclipse, the Lunar Nodes being the North and South Nodes. These relate to our destiny, unique mission or services and talent- what we’re supposed to do in this lifetime, and what we’re meant to steer away from, and our karma. Destiny is brought into the forefront of our consciousness when the North and South Nodes are active. The North Node is all about our adult self and talents, gifts and special abilities as linked to our service, career and the like. This is where we’re headed to: who we’re becoming. The South Node is what we’re steering away from. It represents our childhood self, what we fall back towards as we did in childhood and youth, such as insecurities, wounds and comforts that keep us disconnected from our mature adult body (and North Node self).
The North and South Nodes or Lunar Nodes are essentially symbolling of our past and future. Karma influences us in all areas; therefore it would be wise to look up your birth chart during this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse to discover where your Lunar nodes lie. They will illuminate your destiny, strengths, and weakness, likes and dislikes, and what you should be working on mastering and embodying in the next astrological cycle.
Keep an open mind too. There are always 2 or 3 sides to every story- ‘his,’’ ‘hers’’ and spirit’s. Source is non-judgmental. God or Spirit is all-embracing and unconditionally loving. The universe is omniscient and compassionate. But intellect and logic create a cord which links the heart, feeling and empathy with reason and rationality. This May’s Lunar Eclipse highlights the higher mind, and with this comes mental and cognitive abilities. We are more inclined to explore our philosophies and fundamental belief systems- and link them to our relationships and current (and past) life events. Stay open-minded, release judgement, and practice compassion and empathy. Unconditional love can lead to tolerance, patience, wisdom, and greater understanding and empathy.
Don’t be afraid to redefine your beliefs and perspective either. There is no shame in admitting you’ve been wrong or have something twisted. Remember that Sagittarius signifies fearlessness and courage, and that the Lunar Nodes bring the element and energy of karma into the mix. Sometimes our belief systems are faulty- they are often developed from misinformation or
manipulations and mistruths. Embrace the reality that you’re human capable of mistakes. This opens pathways to wisdom and personal power, authority and self-sovereignty...
Lay the groundwork.
Eclipses usually have a corresponding Eclipse, an “opposite.” There’s a Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius on December 4th, a time of new beginnings and unexpected opportunities. You should therefore consider laying the groundwork for the next 6-month cycle. This Lunar Eclipse is all about transformation and our internal world- our feelings, beliefs, impressions, and understandings of our experiences. This is because the Moon symbolizes our inner world. The Lunar Eclipse this coming December is more expressive, it relates to our outer world (as represented by the Sun). Relationships will come powerfully into focus by the time the Sagittarius total Solar Eclipse comes. Now is the time to make sense of things, lay the foundation for what you want to manifest and accomplish- in career, relationships, finances, and personal passion projects, and set the stage and tone for the next 6 months.
Many Blessings, Cecelia
