May 25 Lunar Eclipse

This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is at 4’ 08” Sagittarius.  Sagittarius is the sign of the Sage, the seeker, the adventurer on a quest for Truth.  It also governs over religion, faith, foreign matters and higher education, as well as publishing and legal matters.  There may be an ending or turning point in regard to any of those matters. Because this eclipse is in Sagittarius, Jupiter is the ruler of this eclipse. Jupiter has been in his opposite sign of Gemini for all of 2013 and a good bit of 2012 too. This Eclipse is a kind of a ‘farewell’ party in his honor from the cosmos as Jupiter will leave Gemini in mid June. During Jupiter’s stay in Gemini, we’ve had some time to think about our beliefs, faith, religion, life’s philosophy; we’ve been questioning assumptions, prejudices and our worldview.  The Gemini/Sagittarius polarity was receiving eclipses since 2010, and accelerating us along this path of growth in consciousness and allowing us to encompass other viewpoints or to be tolerant of other viewpoints and beliefs at the very least.  It could be a time of discovery while learning our own personal truth and adjusting our lives accordingly in this process. 

The Sabian symbol for the Moon at this eclipse is “an old owl up in a tree”.  The owl symbolizes wisdom, mystery, transition (since it’s associated with death and death is a transition), messages, secrets and clairvoyance. The owl is able to see things that are hidden, its nocturnal and has the ability to see in the dark and most people are afraid of the dark; it is a place that we fear.  But a Full Moon is bright and brings illumination and this one is especially bright since it is a “Super Moon” making it at least 17,000 miles closer than usual to Earth.  It may light up certain dark crevices and shed light on things that have been hidden from us. 

This Full Moon is challenged by Neptune making things highly sensitized or emotional. This could also be a very spiritual or creative time. Neptune rules water and the ocean.  Since this is a Full Moon, tides could be even higher with potential for flooding.  Also marine life like dolphins and whales could be brought to our attention for some reason.  The Sabian symbol for Neptune is “officers on dress parade”   and it might be that we are able to see through certain illusions and cover ups and “the right image” that is presented before us. We may have to have faith in our own truth and discard certain illusions that have been the cause of our own undoing.  The biggest illusion being that of separateness.

 Mercury, The Messenger and Venus, the Lover meet up in Gemini at this eclipse joining our hearts and minds and having us enjoying conversations and socializing.  Jupiter is close by too possibly making it a big event with a lot of people such as a wedding or graduation.    It is a holiday weekend here in the U.S. and the kickoff to the summer season so maybe you are enjoying a BBQ or vacationing. Watch with alcohol.  Alcohol and ‘altered states’ of consciousness fall under the domain of Neptune who is very prominent at this Eclipse. 

 

In the News:   A bridge in Washington State collapses plunging cars into the water.  And military misconduct as officers are accused of secretly spying on cadets and taking pictures while they were undressing.
