There are some people who believe that there is a spiritual connection to the planets and stars, and the eclipse, so we are going to look at what the eclipse means for you today. It is an important time as it is a very potent energy that will affect your life and the way you will live it. The eclipse is the same in all the zodiac signs and this gives us the opportunity to be more personal with our lives.
In astrology we can talk about the moon in terms of the “seasons” it has during a year. The first full moon is called the spring equinox, when the moon is on the same side of the earth as the sun. The moon is also at the zenith for the first quarter moon. The new moon is when the moon is in the same side of the earth as the sun. The last full moon is called the autumnal equinox, when the moon is on the opposite side of the earth from the sun. The moon is also in the zenith for the last quarter.
On the 26th. In May 2021, we will have a powerful full moon and lunar eclipse at 5° Sagittarius. The full moon is a time when everything is revealed as it really is. The full moon is the only time in the lunar cycle when the lunar disk is fully illuminated. The full moon brings clarity, transparency and reveals the truth. Because this full moon is ALWAYS a lunar eclipse, we are going to a whole new level of revelation.
If you’ve been paying attention to eclipses, you already know how powerful they are. But not all eclipses are the same. Partial eclipses are still important, but have less impact than total eclipses.
Total lunar eclipse in the constellation of Sagittarius
The upcoming lunar eclipse is a total lunar eclipse, so it has great significance. Moreover, there are two types of eclipses: Northern Lunar Eclipses and Southern Lunar Eclipses. Since this is a Full Moon in Sagittarius and the South Lunar Node is now in Sagittarius, the coming lunar eclipse in Sagittarius is a South Lunar Node eclipse. As you probably know, the North Lunar Node and the South Lunar Node are both associated with karma. More specifically, the eclipses of the south node have to do with the purification of karma. Southern Lunar Eclipses have a bad reputation, but they do not always lead to negative consequences. The southern node is very similar to the reinforcement.
You reap what you sow. For some people, success, recognition or unexpected benefits are possible during a South Lunar Eclipse. The difference is that while North Lunar Eclipses bring something new into our lives, South Lunar Eclipses bring results based on past actions – in this life or in previous lives. During a Northern Lunar Eclipse you create new karma, during a Southern Lunar Eclipse you release old karma. Getting rid of the old is always uncomfortable. But if something doesn’t cause discomfort, there’s probably no real change.
Gemini VS Sagittarius
Each Full Moon/Moon eclipse is an alignment of the qualities of the two signs on whose axis it occurs. This lunar eclipse is located on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis. The Sun and the North Lunar Node are in Gemini and the Moon and the South Lunar Node are in Sagittarius. The Gemini/Sagittarius axis is the axis of knowledge. Gemini and Archers, however, have different approaches to knowledge. Gemini controls our logical mind, the way we process information in a factual and unbiased way. Sagittarius controls our beliefs – what we believe to be true and morally right. When we say: We need more data, we act on our twin consciousness. But when we don’t have to prove or explain something – because it feels morally right – we act according to the Sagittarian spirit.
We don’t need to explain why helping someone in need is the right thing to do. We don’t have to explain why we have laws that put criminals in jail. While Gemini is characterized by curiosity and approaches everything with the mind of a beginner, Sagittarius prefers to follow the designated path, which has its advantages and disadvantages. Sagittarians don’t waste time reinventing the wheel but save time and energy by sticking to what has already proven itself. After all, we do not want to invent a new law every day. The downside is that it can also lapse into dogma and get stuck in already outdated paradigms. The lunar eclipse in Sagittarius will reveal what works and what no longer works with the Sagittarius approach. The eclipse will make us aware of our prejudices and dogmas, but will also help us realize what Sagittarian beliefs have helped us become what we are today.
And this exploration of the soul is not superficial. It’s not just this faith that has served me well, so I stick with it, and this faith has not served me, so I abandon it. This self-examination is a deepening and understanding of WHY. What is the real reason I believe this? What’s the real reason I had this conviction? When you discover a negative belief system, such as a deficit mindset, don’t just try to remove it from your brain. Anyway, it’s not that simple. The lunar eclipse encourages you to understand why you’ve lasted so long. What are the hidden benefits that made you choose this path? What’s the big picture? What’s really going on here?
Lunar eclipse in Sagittarius – a deeper look at the truth
But the lessons of the lunar eclipse in Sagittarius go beyond knowledge and logic. The ruler of the lunar eclipse, Jupiter, is now at 1° Pisces. Jupiter is square the Sun and Moon, or the lunar eclipse itself – challenging Gemini and Sagittarius. Jupiter in Pisces takes a different path to truth. While the truth of Gemini and Sagittarius is based on logic and knowledge, the truth of Pisces is based on trust. The truth of Jupiter in Pisces is the profound knowledge that no matter what happens, the universe always supports us. The approach here is NOT to find a binary truth, good or bad, true or false, but to surrender to the unknown. This approach involves believing that there is a deeper truth, a larger whole that we may not fully understand, but which makes perfect sense in the overall scheme of things.
