On June 5th, 2020 we have a Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse at 15° Sagittarius.
This is our first eclipse with the Nodes in the Gemini/Sagittarius axis – so it will give us a first “taste” of what to expect from the upcoming eclipses on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis.
This Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is a South Node eclipse, so the focus is on releasing the old (South Node) rather than on embracing the new (North Node).
Right now the focus is on what’s no longer working.
The South Node is the “familiar” comfort zone, our “default” mode, what we are designed to keep doing because it feels safe and natural.
The South Node is in Sagittarius so right now we need to let go of those Sagittarius operating models that are no longer working.
The South Node Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius suggests that the time has come to let our inner Sagittarius take a back seat.
Sagittarius rules our beliefs, what we believe to be true and morally right. Sagittarius also rules our dogmas and biases.
The Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is a time to acknowledge our dogmas and biases, where we’ve been on autopilot.
This is a South Node Eclipse – a time of release and letting go. This is not a time to find solutions. Some solutions will come in two weeks from now, when we have a Solar/North Node eclipse. Right now though, the focus is on acknowledging what’s no longer working.
Letting go of the familiar doesn’t ‘feel’ right. Shedding the old skin feels uncomfortable. And it should feel uncomfortable. If something doesn’t feel uncomfortable, chances are, there’s no real change happening.
This Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is opposite Venus and square Mars.
Venus is now a young morning star with a mission. She may not know yet what she wants, but her heart is on fire. Her chest is lit up.
Mars is at his first square in the hero’s journey. This is when the hero leaves the “familiar world” and crosses the threshold to the “unknown world”.
This phase in the Mars cycle is when the hero is the most vulnerable. He leaves safety behind and adventures in the unknown.
This is a time to embrace our vulnerability. Because it is only by embracing it, that our vulnerability becomes our greatest strength. When we embrace it, we know where we stand. We know our weak areas. And from that place of knowing, we can embark on our new adventure with full awareness.
To conclude, the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is a time to acknowledge our biases and dogmas, but also our weaknesses and vulnerabilities.
Again, keep in mind that Full Moons and South Node eclipses are times of release. Don’t look for solutions just yet. Simply acknowledge where you’re at.
The first “solutions” will be revealed in two weeks from now, when we have a powerful Solstice Solar Eclipse.
