Total Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon
Moon in Vishaka + Shukla Purnima (15th)
Around midnight, we have the full moon lunar eclipse.
How has May fleshed out for you so far? For me, its been a huge adjusting of my sails as the winds have changed. To adjust the sails, a slowing down to an imperceptible amount of movement is needed and…then…a pivot. I’m Pisces-rising, in particular Revati nakshatra, so I tend to have the viewpoint that I have 360 degrees of options I can pivot in, an ocean of possibility. That’s my default/optimism but really, we all have access to that.
This first cycle around the new moon on May 1st was about that. As the energy kept waxing on as we moved closer to the now full moon, we actually gain momentum and start building up speed.
Tonight’s Full Moon gives us that full autonomy to cut away what no longer jives with our purpose and divorce our emotional ties from it as we take steps in a new direction.
This may be imperceptible for you and something miniscule like cleaning out your closet, or it may be taking a radical new direction in life. We’re talking many shades and facets of possibility.
Sun is with Krittika, the symbol of a knife that cuts away. It cuts away ties with what is no longer needed (the symbolic cutting of the umbilical cord so we can align with our own karma and journey in this world).
Moon is with Vishaka, the symbol is the fork, such as a fork in the road and taking the road less traveled (and it makes all the difference ~Robert Frost writings).
These placements happen at the apex of the eclipse where Moon is debilitated and Sun is strong. Meaning the desire to do the pivot is strong and it likely doesn’t feel good. Eclipse energy isn’t immediate. We will be feeling this for weeks or months to come, possibly until the next eclipse, depending on you and your chart and where you are in life.
These types of energies are why we have spiritual practice, creating ritualistic containers for alignment and learning to go with the flow vs. being forced down on our hands and knees.
And it is all good for something.
Sending you many blessings and support for a productive and evolutionary eclipse cycle.
