Come 5 June 2020, we are going to experience our very first Gemini – Sagittarius axis on the penumbral lunar eclipse full moon.
POWERFUL RELEASE AND AWAKENINGS
Unlike a normal full moon that reflects the sun’s illumination, during a penumbral lunar eclipse the Sun, Earth, and the Moon are imperfectly aligned. When this happens, the Earth blocks some of the Sun’s light from directly reaching the Moon’s surface and covers all or part of the Moon with the outer part of its shadow, also known as the penumbra.
Lasting for 18 months till December 2021,
- How exactly would this Gemini-Sagittarius season influence us?
- How profound is their impact on our emotions and well being?
- How would that related to our internal growth?
- Our relationship needs and wants?
- Our values and directions in life?
This coming Penumbral lunar eclipse full moon is the first of the 2 years series of Gemini/Sagittarius axis. With a brand new entrance of this duo, it is going to be an even potent full moon than any other ones.
The last time Gemini/Sagittarius axis happened was during the following periods and each of them is 9-years apart before they are back to greet us again:
- Dec 2010 to May 2013
- Dec 2001 to Nov 2003
- Dec 1991 to May 1994
- Jun 1982 to Nov 1984
Do you remember any significant events or incident that happened then?
These are cyclical periods of your past and if applicable, the upcoming lunar eclipse may have similar themes to the ones you have experienced. Since the Sun and Moon moved in various degrees over the years, no issues will be identical but definitely, certain themes can be resurfaced.
This is a time where all truth shall be revealed and nothing can be contained, pressing issues that require your attention, can no longer be swept under the rug.
This is the time where any suppressed concerns of importance are being illuminated. It is not an overnight thing but a problem that has been brewing underneath the surface for the longest time but has yet to find a conclusion towards it.
Although some people may experience the influx of their emotions or irritability 2 weeks way in advance, if they have very strong mutable energies or heavy Gemini/Sagittarius elements in their charts.
During this time, the sun and moon will be opposing each other at a 15 to 16 degrees between Gemini Sun and Sagittarius Moon.
Together with Venus still in Retrograde, the Lunar eclipse is also faced with 2 major squares as depicted above.
Squares in Astrology refers to tensions, obstructions and challenged energies between the themes of the planets that were aspected. In this case, we have Mars squaring Moon, Mars squaring Venus and the Sun (both of them are in conjunction) as well. To top it off, Venus is also in opposition to the sensitive Moon.
Mars when in square with Moon, Venus and Sun, bring about aggressions and hurts to the sensitive heart, causing drifts in emotions, love and acting against your will when it comes to touchy sensitive matters such as relationships.
This will be an overwhelming period that inevitably causes strains to any relationships out there. Everyone is affected, it depends on the degree of impact this phenomenal has upon your natal chart.
What kinds of energetic shifts do eclipses signify?
A lunar eclipse full moon is largely relationship based and they bring to them a different theme as per compared to a solar eclipse. The energies that a lunar eclipse brings contains a full blown need or want that has an urgency sense that needs to be addressed..
Usually these are needs or wants that have been culminated but didn’t have a chance for them to be expressed or fulfilled. Full moons have the potential to speed up what has been lacking and bring those needs and wants to light. It is telling us that this is the time that we should not sit and wait any longer and our concerns are here to be addressed so that we all can grow and progress. An eclipse will only further expand these needs to be expressed and it is something that shouldn’t be neglect or ignore.
Since Lunar Eclipses are known for relationships and polarities, with the Gemini-Sagittarius axis involved, this Lunar Eclipse nudges us to deep dive into the needs, lacks, and wants in our lives concerning the themes between Gemini and Sagittarius ruled areas of life.
Gemini-Sagittarius polarity is a mental axis, where Gemini represents the “lower mind” and Sagittarius represents the “higher mind.”
The Gemini Sun encourages us to think logically, while Sagittarius Moon gives rise to our intuition and higher self, and to think in a broader manner.
Sagittarius symbolizes the quest in search for meanings, purposes and ideas that expand beyond the “here and now” and Gemini represents communications and learning.
Geminis are quite comfortable in their immediate surroundings while Sagittarius pushes us to venture beyond it.
Neglecting either side of the axis will certainly causes the balancing scale to tip. A good balance should be found and this lunar eclipse is all about communicating our needs, our values, our attitudes and identifying what is our sense of purpose and the adventures that lie ahead.
Whatever has been building inside of us, this is the time where all the energies in this lunar eclipse will provide us this great opportunity to explore our emotional needs where the eclipse occurs in the house of our natal chart.
During this time, relationships will be challenged, broken, or strengthened even more. We become emotionally charged and dramatic. Epiphanies are likely at this time as we become acutely aware of our lack. Although there will be some chaos initially, but they are all here to enable us to understand what’s needed to propel us into affirmative actions.
Although lunar eclipses are known to be more relationship-based, they too, can create opportunities that trigger awareness of what we are lacking in certain areas of our lives that we tend to overlook or suppressed. Whether it is about working out in a relationship, marriage, business partnership, taking a closer look into our health and well being or pondering deep into what’s our life purpose and the next direction we are heading, lunar eclipse full moon is here to bring those matters to light.
What should we do during a lunar eclipse?
It is often during a lunar eclipse that we become aware of the influences we have on others. It allows us to see people on a different light, removing the layer of veil that has been blinding our vision or perception.
Most of the times, you may not like what you see, but lunar eclipse is the culmination of activities and events that signify letting go of things that no longer serve their purposes. There is time for beginning and endings and this is the time to release, purge and to bid goodbye.
Endings are hard and painful, but everything is cyclical and it is part and parcel of the way of life..
