Eclipses are gateways that tend to mark meaningful steps in our journey like a series of celestial “bookmarks” in our story. Often the closing and opening of an era, these unpredictable portals seem suspended in time and space, equipped with their tell-tale “eclipse essence” -a vaporous veil of subtle magic and the eerie whisperings of life beyond the material.
This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse comes to us in the sign of Sagittarius – the harbinger of highest truth and wisdom. The Sag moon opposes the Sun conjunct Venus in Gemini, bringing Venus retrograde themes to the forefront with dizzying intensity. This entire retrograde has had our minds criss-crossing in a disorienting search for truth, and this full moon may mark the climax of these energies. A square to Mars and Neptune in Pisces reveals a crisis of illusion, emotions, and a scattering of so many little details. A square to asteroid Ceres gives the chart the dull ache of a heart mourning separation and the changing of a season, spiritually seasick on the swells of the shift as the collective confronts the toxicity of its ethos.
Macro- Micro, we ride the tides of our own incoming realizations. We may feel like shielding our eyes from the onslaught of energies, caught between the cross fire of the mind and heart- Where to go from here?
This eclipse is about the bravery to travel the uncharted no matter how hard the road. Ignoring the ego mind with it’s billion and one white lies and tapping into the gut-level root of ONE TRUTH. Feel it, love it, speak it, KNOW it like the well trodden trails of a private forest. Because it is yours. Sag is brutally honest, unapologetic, and guided by an internal optimism anchored in trust. A full moon with a full dose of truth that hits like an arrow to the chest- a thorn dripping with medicine for the times, tonic for the growing soul.
Notice where you are now in this moment and see the truth of why you are there. Notice where we are now in this moment and see the truth of why we are here. Let the wisdom of that moment speak right to you like a prayer. This is the journey.
