Wednesday’s Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse: Keeping It Real
June began with a solar eclipse at the Gemini new moon, and two weeks later, along comes a Sagittarius full-moon lunar eclipse to finish what was started. This full moon is especially potent because it’s a total eclipse (cue the 1980s song), bringing to full-tilt fruition some seeds planted in early December at the Sagittarius new moon. Sagittarius is the sign of travel, learning, open-mindedness and global connections. We expect that the anchors on BBC and CNN will be busy in the next couple of days!
During a lunar eclipse, Earth is positioned directly between the Sun and the Moon, casting a shadow on both. This gives us a glimpse into the “shadow” side of our egos and our emotions. Although we all want to think of ourselves as good, righteous beings, we’re all human here. If you’ve been preaching at someone, it’s time to look in your own backyard. Climb down from that soapbox and offer your well-meaning advice from a place of sisterhood, rather than from on high. Sagittarius is the truth-teller, so expect to hear a confession or two — or to make one yourself! This shouldn’t be anything upsetting (it’s not a Scorpio full moon, thank God). It’s more like people owning their humanity and keeping it real, which can be shocking at first, and then refreshing. Remember the saying: “The truth shall set you free!”
News from afar could come at this eclipse, or you might connect with someone whose culture, political beliefs or lifestyle is vastly different than yours. This is only the third eclipse in a three-year series (running until 2014) along the Gemini/Sagittarius axis. These eclipses will overturn the made-up divisions people create between themselves. Open your arms to a “brother from another mother” (or a “sister from another mister”) — you have more in common than you think!
