On May 26th at 7:19am EDT, the Moon falls under the Earth’s shadow, creating the year’s first Lunar Eclipse. A lunar eclipse only occurs at the Full Moon, in this case under the visionary watch of Sagittarius. The energy to expand, explore, and philosophize takes precedence.
Adventure and Details
While the Sagittarius Moon seeks adventure and broader meaning, the Sun in Gemini dabbles in the details of networking and logistics, skipping depth for speed. Integrating the two means being able to first write the sermon (Gemini) and then deliver it with charisma and humor (Sagittarius). Or plan the party, from invitations to decorations, and then relish in the festivities.
Get Comfortable With Discomfort
Looking beyond the initial appearance of a jovial and chatty vibe, a challenge comes in the form of fogginess or a struggle with boundaries. Although desiring otherwise, we may flounder and find ourselves uncomfortable in previously comfortable scenarios. With Mercury retrograding on May 29th, we see an underscore of the need to slow down, review and revise. Take this as an opportunity to get clear about emotions and psychic detritus from the past that holds you back.
Let Yourself Blossom
An eclipse also requires us to consider how we might block our own progress. To understand this, think back to the Taurus New Moon on May 11th and decide whether you accepted the mission to slow at that time. Furthermore, bring to mind any doors you have consciously closed in the past six months. What can blossom in your life when you relinquish old habits or projects that no longer contribute to your well-being? Let the Sagittarian arrow fly high above and witness what comes into view.
Clear The Way
