Here comes the second of three consecutive eclipses this summer (or whatever season it may be in your part of the globe :) This is also the first Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius in the Gemini-Sagittarius series of eclipses that began December 21, 2010. The most recent eclipse occurred just two weeks before on June 1st with a Solar Eclipse in Gemini.

Here's a little recap of what eclipses represent in astrology.The days, sometimes weeks, approaching to an eclipse create intense and impatient energy. There's a bit of chaos and the feeling/fear of being out of control with what's happening all around, especially in each of our immediate environment and personal lives. This might be because eclipses, in astrology, are accelerators. They speed up events, issues, situations in our personal lives and demand for them to be dealt with. Eclipses are supercharged full and new moons with influence extending up to six months.

The degree of difficulty depends on the readiness of the individual to tackle these challenges, his/her willingness to do the work required, and his/her commitment to the cause/s which is really the self and its growth. The level of influence an eclipse or set of eclipses have also depends on individual birth charts.

That said, let's move on to this month's Full Moon in Sagittarius (at 1:14 p.m. PDT / 4:14 p.m. EDT), which also happens to be a Lunar Eclipse (at 1:12 p.m PDT / 4:12 p.m. EDT). Full Moons signify endings, the culmination of what may been initiated during the previous New Moon in Gemini, which challenged us to 'see' things/situations/events for what they really are and no more turning a blind eye or escaping in wishful thinking, but instead, time to break away from what's been holding us back.

This Eclipsed Sagittarius-Full Moon (heart/inner core), while seeking balance/harmony with the Gemini-Sun (soul/conscious will) and Mercury (mind/communication), comes ever so close to blending energies with the Sagittarius-North Node (life direction). Many of us may find ourselves questioning where we're going or how we may be planning to get to our desired destination and whether this is the best course of action. Others may be realizing what they've been working towards are no longer what they're passionate about or what gives them joy/contentment. There are those who might also find that the choices they've made have brought changes that may be challenging, but also exciting and fulfilling. However this Lunar Eclipse may play out in your world, listen to your heart if it is tugging at you. Also, let's be mindful of improving our internal dialog and external interactions, then shift our perspective to 'see' the bigger picture, so that your choices/actions may reflect your ultimate goal/s.

This Full Moon Eclipse occurs at 25 degrees in Sagittarius. Sagittarians born around December 16 and Geminis born around June 15, along with those who have planets/house angles around 25 degrees of mutable signs may experience this lunar eclipse more powerfully than others.

For me as a Virgo rising (click here for my chart), this eclipsed full moon falls in my natal 3rd house (thought/communication) but is also conjunct my natal 4th house (family/home; where I've been) and seeking balance with issues in my 9th (personal growth/experiences) and 10th (career/future goals; where I'm going) houses. This Sagittarius-Moon, Gemini-Sun, Mercury and North Node stimulate my natal Pluto (endings/transformation) and natal 1st (self/potential)/7th (relationships) houses, too; and forms a cardinal t-square with my natal Pluto and ascendant (1st house) as focal points. Couple this with the existing long term transits in full force with my birth chart; and this summer/rest of year may just be as 'challenging' and full of 'opportunities' for growth as the second half of last year was when my solar return happened alongside the 2010 cardinal t-square/cross & Cancer-Eclipsed New Moon intensity. Whew! I'm tired already :)
