Welcome to the long awaited day of the lunar eclipse! Not only it is an eclipse today there are some powerful aspects as well. This is a great time to purge and heal so if it feels a little rough, just know this is the process and allow yourself to seek out that which you are looking for - allowing the astrology to work with you!
The first thing is the moon's ingress into the sign of Libra early this morning. The moon was void-of-course since Monday night at 11:55 PM. So all of yesterday it was void-of-course. This may have had some of us feeling a sort of lag in our energy. Today that will shift around so I hope you got in some chill time! Libra moon also comes to be full and she has an eclipse today so highlighted today and over the next 6 months are relationships. Think of the relationships you are in and you have cultivated in your life. Are you in ones that enrich your self worth and your journey on your path in life? If not, this is a perfect day and over the next 6 months take to take some inventory them. Then adjust as needed. Remember when you let go of those people that are not working in your life, you leave room for new ones that do.
Jupiter in Virgo comes to a square with Saturn in Sagittarius at 6:15 AM. This transit is a longer one and more of a time of transformation than an event that happens. Saturn brings reality to carefree Jupiter. That reality may not feel grounded for some of us and this could be a difficult transit to go through because of it. When Saturn and Jupiter make this square we may feel a little depressed or ill fortuned. We have been feeling this particular aspect for about a month now, this is the first culmination of it. Since this aspect is with two slow moving planets, and Jupiter goes direct soon, there is another exact aspect between these two before the energy actually goes away. This exact aspect is May 26th but since these two never go out of orb between now and May 26th - the energy is never quite gone. The aspect is also part of a very powerful mutable grand square in June and is completely gone by the end of summer. The main thing for you to focus yourself on is creating stability in the areas of your life that these two planets connect with in your own chart.
The next aspect that comes to pass today is when the moon and Mercury in Aries come to an opposition at 7:11 AM. This means that Mercury is right in the mix of the lunar eclipse. So the lunar eclipse is just colored on the Libra/Aries axis and has us drawing our attention to relationships and personal power. Mercury brings in the fact that we also need to bring about communication within the realms of our relationships too.
Next is our peak of the lunar eclipse which takes place at 8:01 AM today. This is when the moon is exactly full and opposite the sun in the sky. The lunar eclipse happens at 3 degrees Libra and the sun is at 3 degrees Aries. This Libra/Aries axis is a tug-of-war between our own personal power with the sun at Aries and then our connection with others with the moon in Libra. We feel this power very strongly now and we want to make harmony within and with others. This is not just a single one time event either, but rather a process we can work on for the next 6 months. Heal the relationships that need healing and let go of the ones that do not work so we can embrace those that do.
Eclipses sort of blot out the luminary that they are eclipsing, this time it is the moon. Therefore it is as if we are given the chance to bot out some of the things in our subconscious and open our light in another direction. I refer to it as a sort of blotting out of the energies because the moon is cast a shadow upon and its as if in a metaphorical sense our emotions are given a reset button. Hey, who doesn't love a reset? Right?! Give this eclipse a chance to work for you in a harmonious manner in your life.
The moon the comes to a sextile to Mars at 12:33 PM. This has us feeling excited and maybe a little bit of nervous energy. This is a good aspect to go out and spend some energy in a way that makes you sweat! Go and enjoy warming up your body and get it moving and shaking at this time!
The last aspect that comes to a culmination on today is when the sun makes a conjunction with Mercury, this happens at 4:11 PM. This has the sun bringing some light to Mercury and giving us a chance to shine our light on our words. This is a great aspect to pay attention to details and the little things in life.
The gemstone for today is moonstone to help balance the energies of the lunar eclipse.
The essential oil for today is clary sage, giving us an opportunity to connect with the energies of the moon even further. This is also helpful at giving us a chance to work with lucid dreams in our lives.
All times are in Eastern US Time.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
