On May 26th, 2021 we have a powerful Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse at 5° Sagittarius.
Full Moons are when things are revealed for what they truly are. The Full Moon is the only time in the lunar cycle when the disc of the Moon is fully illuminated. Full Moons bring clarity, transparency, and reveal the truth.
Since this Full Moon is ALSO a Lunar Eclipse, we change gears to a whole new level of disclosure.
If you’ve been paying attention to eclipses, you already know how powerful they are. But not all Eclipses are made equal. Partial eclipses, while still fated, are less impactful than Total eclipses.
Total Lunar Eclipse In Sagittarius
The upcoming Lunar Eclipse is a Total Lunar Eclipse, so it’s a biggie.
Furthermore, eclipses are of two types: North Node eclipses, and South Node Eclipses.
Since this is a Sagittarius Full Moon, and the South Node is currently in Sagittarius, the upcoming Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is a South Node eclipse. As you may know, both the North Node and the South Node of the Moon are connected with karma. More specifically, South Node eclipses are connected with the clearance of karma.
Although they tend to have a bad rep, South Node eclipses don’t always come with negative consequences. The South Node is much like a payout. “What goes around comes around”. Some people can have achievements, recognitions or receive unexpected benefits at a South Node eclipse.
The difference here is that while North Node eclipses bring something new in our life, South Node eclipses deliver outcomes based on previous actions – from this lifetime, or previous lifetimes.
At a North Node eclipse, you are creating new karma, at a South Node eclipse, you are releasing old karma. Releasing the old always feels uncomfortable. However, if something doesn’t feel uncomfortable, chances are, there’s no real change happening.
Gemini VS Sagittarius
Any Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse is a reconciliation of the qualities of the 2 signs on the axis it occurs. This Lunar Eclipse is on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis. The Sun and the North Node are in Gemini, and the Moon and the South Node are in Sagittarius.
The Gemini/Sagittarius axis is the axis of knowledge. However, Gemini and Sagittarius have different approaches to knowledge.
Gemini rules our logical mind, how we process information in a factual, unbiased way. Sagittarius rules our beliefs – what we believe to be true and morally right.
When we say “we need more data” we operate from our Gemini mind.
However, when we don’t have to ‘prove’ or explain something – because it feels morally right – we operate from our Sagittarius mind. We don’t have to explain why helping someone in need is the right thing to do. We don’t have to explain why we have laws to put criminals in jail.
If Gemini is defined by curiosity, and approaches everything with a beginner’s mind, Sagittarius prefers to follow the marked path, which has advantages and disadvantages.
Sagittarius doesn’t waste time reinventing the wheel, saving us time and energy by sticking to what’s already proven to work. After all, we wouldn’t want to come up with a new law every other day.
The downside is that it can also fall victim to dogma, and can get stuck in paradigms that have outgrown themselves.
The Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius will expose what’s working and what’s no longer working with the “Sagittarius” approach.
The eclipse will make us aware of our biases and dogmas, but will also help us see which Sagittarian beliefs have helped us become the person we are today.
And this soul-searching is not a superficial one. It’s not just about “This belief has served me well, so I’ll stick to it, this one hasn’t, so I’ll drop it”.
This soul-searching is about going deeper, and understanding the WHY.
What is the real reason why I believe this to be true?
What is the real reason why I held on to this belief?
If you identify a negative belief system, for example a scarcity mindset, don’t just try to ‘delete’ it from your brain. It is not that simple anyway.
The Lunar Eclipse is calling you to discover WHY you have held onto it for that long.
What were the hidden benefits or payouts that made you stick to it?
What is the bigger picture here?
What is really going on?
Lunar Eclipse In Sagittarius – A Deeper Kind Of 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 squares both the Sun and the Moon, or the Lunar Eclipse itself – and challenges both the Gemini and the Sagittarius approaches.
Jupiter in Pisces takes a different path to truth. While Gemini and Sagittarius’ truth is based on logic and knowledge, the Piscean truth is based on trust.
The Jupiter in Pisces truth is a deep knowing that no matter what, the Universe always has our back.
The approach here is NOT finding the binary, good or bad, true or false type of truth, but surrendering to the unknown. The approach is trusting that there is a deeper kind of truth, a bigger picture that we may not fully grasp, yet it makes perfect sense in the grand scheme of things.
