Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius | Friday, June 5, 2020 - a zeitgeist moment, the crisis is obvious, the gift maybe less so, but there it is, make certain to see it

On Friday, June 5th, 2020 at 3:13PM EDT, the Sagittarius Moon will oppose the Gemini Sun - giving us this month's Full Moon - a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius.

This is the first of THREE Eclipses we have over the next four weeks - destined to change everything AGAIN!

Full Moons bring things to light, to a culmination or a conclusion and happening close enough to the Moon's nodes to create an eclipse gives this result a broader and longer lasting impact.

This Eclipse is pushing us to identity the beliefs we carry that are no longer working/no longer supported by facts or our intuition. Let them go. Think about - what kind of person would I be if I let go of this belief or that belief. Is this really true? Is this really true for me? And we might not call these 'our beliefs', we call this stuff 'what is'. But what if it isn't? 

The Gemini Sun allows us to see the other side of everything - we only need to open our eyes. Wider.

Or maybe the space we carry an inflated hope needs a cosmic adjustment because what we really need now (the Virgo empty leg of this T-Square) is some grounded practicality

(also to keep up good health and hygienic practices because Virgo/Pisces rules our health and Hygiea is hanging out with the North Node and Vesta).

We might be experiencing big events/decisions involving the theme of our natal Sagittarius house or the collective Sag themes of - foreigners (who/what we see as foreign), ethics, religion, the big picture, politics, legal issues, publishing, philosophy, travel, education, things like weddings ie the way we connect to wider social energies, the way we gain mastery over our own amoral/immoral impulses, what it takes to go beyond (think of the space launch, too, this week), what constitutes JUSTICE.

People with planets/points in the mutable signs between 13-17 degrees will likely feel this energy strongest. And people with aspects in their natal that are reflected in this chart.

That square to Mars brings tension/frustration - in Pisces, maybe needing to make a choice/a move/take some kind of action and not being clear on what to do (or maybe being exhausted, anesthetized, disillusioned). Pisces allows us to release old wounds, to self-forgive, to learn from our mistakes, to accept the awkward unfinished business of other people who are not always as we wish they would be, but simply as they are.

Angry/fiery/passionate Mars, comes into this gentle space every couple years, like "where the f*ck am I?", but he (as we) is halfway through now and needs to learn/use what he finds here because have I said already, HE IS ABOUT TO COME HOME TO ARIES FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR. Sorry to shout, but we need to move like spiritual warriors through these days because actual warriors will be/could be needed later.

Fresh off Venus's inferior conjunction with the Sun, something has come to light. What have we seen? What have we heard? When was the last time words made us feel beautiful? Made us feel loved? What have our words/thoughts cost us? What does it take to do the 'right thing'? Does it take courage or knowing what the right thing is?

Most ethical conflicts have imperfect solutions ...

Jupiter, ruling this lunation from his retrograde perch, in his fall, sandwiched between Pluto and Saturn/Pallas - hard to find that lucky penny, our blessings have become our handicap/Achilles' heel.

It will be hard to get what we want here. The good news though is that Sag is the great teacher/we can learn our way through this and Gemini is fast on her feet.

With Mercury out of bounds (for just a few more days) and walking degrees we will walk two more times - our thinking can be radical/out of the box or out of the norm for us, but also subject to later revisions. Keep this in mind.

For some there will be delusions and lies/bubbles burst, and, for others, a rare moment of Zeitgeist TRUTH.


Either way with Mercury squaring Chiron - uncomfortable words/information that triggers some of our oldest, deepest woundings and beliefs.

The status quo is shaken up. We reach a turning point. It's all getting so damn personal!

Lunar Eclipse Full Moons happen on the Moon's South Node - the Moon is full but its light is blocked by the earth's shadow. So although things are still concluding and 'coming to light', stuff is hidden, too. Nothing is exactly as it seems.

Eclipses are cosmic course corrections.

Things get eclipsed out or out of our way.

Like a computer, we get a re-set. Fresh downloads. A de-frag.

Eclipse events do not happen exactly on the date of the eclipse. The eclipse sets up an event chart - a kind of marker in the heavens and as planets/points interact with that point - via transit THAT is when events happen. And somehow with an eclipse prior events factor in, too. I have seen events happen almost exactly a week or month (or even two months) before or after the eclipse. Then the changes brought about by the 'eclipsing' unfold over the next six months or so.

Lunar eclipses often bring endings (sometimes a female energy leaves - collectively this is about George Floyd - a Taurus rising, Libra Sun, Venusian man. We will talk about his charts on Saturday. And Breonna Taylor a beautiful Gemini Sun, Sag Moon with her North Node of destiny conjunct this Eclipse point).

Let's unpack the chart (or did we do that already?)

The Moon, at 15 degrees Sagittarius opposes the Sun at 15 degrees Gemini.

Both are squaring Mars (at exactly 15 degrees Pisces and sandwiched between Ceres and Neptune). The Sun is conjunct Venus and she has just backed out of her own square to Mars and meeting with the Sun (both still in play, but in the very recent past). Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius and so ruler of this lunation is retrograde and sandwiched between Pluto and Saturn/Pallas.

So, the Moon and Sun form an exact and challenging mutable T-Square with Mars in Pisces as the focal point (who is himself sandwiched between Ceres and Neptune). Remember the squares are active aspects, the planet's themselves are wrestling with each other. And those planets standing next to each other - Mars, Ceres, Neptune - they are not getting all cuddly, breaking social distance guidelines and merging into one thing. They are separate energies doing their own thing in Pisces. And those "own things" becomes one thing - if that makes any sense. And I hope it does.

Mars can't be all Mars-y out fighting and taking no prisoners in Pisces drifting waters. He (as we, as our actions) has to feel his way through this Eclipse. And attempt to avoid the Mars/Pisces debilitating crap like being - self-sacrificing, self-sabotaging, exhausted, lazy, addicted, nostalgic, no fun at parties/too much fun at parties - you get the idea. And sandwiched between Ceres and Neptune just adds to his headaches - maybe draining his will/courage. Ceres amplifies the feeling/anxiety of what we can't control and Neptune has no need to control anything. So even if Mars in Pisces/Neptune reaches for the higher ground/wants to transcend reality, it will not be easy.

The T-Square to Mars assures us that action is needed, but it will be hard to know what action to take. Things are confusing. Wrong action can be undermining. But, we are so freaking triggered. So freaking pissed/or sad. The frustration/tension may even trigger the ending/result. Full Moons are oppositions, so it could be someone else's - weakness, bullsh*t, inability to take action - that forces our hand. Has someone been lying to us? Have we been lying to ourselves?

Venus is a major player here. Retrograde in polarizing Gemini, conjunct the Sun, opposing the Moon and squaring Mars, Neptune and Ceres. What we want and what we have to do to get what we want are maybe not in sync. Getting along and what we have to do to get along are maybe not in sync. We are misfiring all over the place.

The Sun and Venus in opposing Gemini. What do we know that we are grateful to know, that we are lucky to know, that we don't want to know, that we are heartbroken from knowing?

Gemini rules our lungs; our ability to move air, to breath. We watch people struggle to breathe through a contagious virus, through triggering masks, we watch a man murdered as authority (in the guise of another man) clamps down on his throat, protester's breaths stolen with tear-gas, shopkeeper's breaths stolen by vandalism, hundreds of thousands of people marching with shirts and masks that read "I can't breathe". Can life make this any freaking clearer to us? Let's take a deep breath before we say it. Let's take another while we listen.

Rebellion and control - this will go on for a couple years.

I have done a chart for Saturday night on the murder of George Floyd and his connection with this time/this eclipse, the USA chart, the police officer who killed him, Rodney King - it's all stunning. What has been built on the backs of other people will not survive the collapse of the crumbling patriarchy.

Keep in mind this is the first of three eclipses over the next four weeks. The next one - near the summer solstice (when we head back to Cancer/Capricorn!!) - looks the most gnarly.

The other two Eclipses, Sag/Gemini, speak of setting aside our current beliefs - have you found yourself changing 'sides', flipping back and forth and all over the place - that's probably right where you want to be.

We see everything through the personal lens of our own theories/beliefs. We kind of believe what we do and then look around (unconsciously usually) for what supports our ideas and beliefs and that's what we notice and the problem here - especially during times like these when we need to be seeing new things and thinking/communicating in new ways - is our perspective limits what we can actually see.

So more information will come to light now and throughout this summer. Old beliefs/thinking/even facts will shift/dissolve. The time as we move in and out of these eclipses is kind of like being in our washing machine spin cycle. It's not the time to take out the wash unless we want a soggy mess. Stuff isn't finished.

We have to let the machine (the set of eclipses) do its work.

There is a lot of theoretical movement. People want to make big moves/to use this moment most wisely or to get the most power. But keep in mind this is Gemini season and the North Node is in Gemini, too, for the next 18 months - there won't be one big solution, there will be as many solutions as there are people. And every single one of them will be needed. And where we place our attention our commitments will multiply - so keep this in mind.

It is hard, maybe not even possible, to know what is real or where the smart choice is found. Listen to your heart/your intuition and be brave.

And keep in mind it is always the times when the astrology shows it will be hard to think straight - that are the times when straight thinking is not so much needed as our guts/intuition. 

If big events are not pushing you personally into a corner - simply locate the bottom line and take a step. Maybe that can work one way or the other. We are not lost. We are right here. Life is unfolding precisely as it should be and the piece of creation (as reflected in our birth chart/road map) that we have agreed to carry and evolve is unfolding precisely and perfectly also.

Think of it this way - lightning has already struck, and more than once.

BREATHE DEEPLY and slowly.

See if this deep slow breath is able to help you to be the most deeply yourself.

Because that is what is needed from us now. The thing we have been running from for lifetimes.

For us to be most deeply ourselves.

xo all

Ok, so I have to pop back in here and say, that square to Mars y'all - please stay safe.
