LUNAR ECLIPSE in SAGITTARIUS June 5th, 2020

ECLIPSE in SAGITTARIUS: June 5th, 2020
scroll down for Sun Sign Scopes more…


The Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius on June 5th is intimately tied to the recent New Moon in the opposite sign of Gemini, on May 22nd. Here we were asked, are still being asked, to clarify in our heart of hearts what we truly want. Relationships with our partners (intimate or otherwise), loved ones, ourselves, have indeed been subject to a period of near constant questioning.

Adding then, to what seems an already trying atmosphere where heart & mind are pressured to align in harmony, this Lunar Eclipse can 1. complicate issues further and 2. create directional shifts that are hard to handle with any amount of surety.

The sentiment rippling through the collective is that we don’t have control over our circumstances yet are fully convinced we should. And so round and round we will go, pandering to the paradoxical elements of our human nature.

In short, this LUNAR ECLIPSE will test our faith, our beliefs, the essence of who we are, individually and as a collective. Points of light are there – yet it can be hard to tell which one is 1. uniquely yours and 2. if this ‘point of light’ will be able to maintain its brightness over the long haul – with the ability to guide you through the darkest of days.

We have time. This is the first eclipse of series on the axis of Sagittarius & Gemini that will occur periodically over the next 18 months. The last time we experienced these Eclipses was at the end of 2011 into 2012. The final eclipse of the series was in Sagittarius on May 25th of 2013. And so, you may notice similarities with what happened during that time over the next year and a half. *Note that the lunar nodes were reversed in those years as the cosmos encouraged us to don a big picture perspective. This time we will be better able to go with this flow only by considering the finer details of who we are. In a way, our noses are being led smack dab into the center of ourselves allowing us to reckon with each pixel that contributes to our being as a whole.

For those familiar with more technical aspects of astrology, under this particular eclipse we are dealing with a mutable T-square - the Moon in Sagittarius @15°, the Sun @15° Gemini in conjunction with Venus RX @12°, and Mars @15° Pisces. To find our balance point in this mess consideration of the fourth mutable sign Virgo @ 15° may prove useful.

And so, following a brief description of Dane Rudyard’s interpretation of this Sabian Symbol degree, taking into account the culture to which we belong can help us locate the center of our personal storm. The culture to which we belong, after-all, has a major influence over who we think we are, what we believe, and what resonates as truth. Here are several definitions to ponder:

CULTURE definition: A culture is a way of life of a group of people--the behaviors, beliefs, values, and symbols that they accept, generally without thinking about them, and that are passed along by communication and imitation from one generation to the next.

CULTURE definition: refers to the cumulative deposit of knowledge, experience, beliefs, values, attitudes, meanings, hierarchies, religion, notions of time, roles, spatial relations, concepts of the universe, and material objects and possessions acquired by a group of people in the course of generations through individual and group striving.

SUN SIGN Lunar Eclipse Scopes


ARIES & Aries Rising:

You may be skipping along happily under this eclipse. There is a sense anything is possible. However, it becomes increasingly obvious how much there is yet to do. The many possibilities running through your mind (at a mile a minute)can start feel like you are stretching your soul, perhaps too far beyond.  It’s as if you’re reaching for the stars, arms and sights set sky high yet your feet are doing this weird jig trying to keep up with it all.  That said, you can expect to be mighty busy around this time Aries, but also a touch scattered.  Do consider the practical details involved in the immediate present lest you suffer burnout from trying to accomplish too much at once.

As Wanting-Venus is back tracking and Mars remains in the depths of Pisces it’s also possible important details are missed. Those details can easily swoop in to cast a grey cloud over the brilliant stars you're seeing, later on.  Focusing on foundational aspects then, in some detail, may provide the firm footing needed to keep you steadily reaching up and up and up.

In short, this is the first of a series of eclipses set to update your belief systems – what you truly believe is possible by way of accumulating proof to yourself AND others.   This will undoubtedly send you on a learning curve for the next 18 months Aries.  To be clear there is work involved. It isn’t easy. You’ll often be challenged to re-examine your experiences in life overall to refine what you’ve learned so far. How much do your really know for sure? *Hint: As the North Node rests in Gemini actively & consciously living in alignment with your evolving beliefs can take you higher than you ever dreamed possible. It’ll be quite the ride with more than a few unexpected twists and turns.

This FULL MOON Eclipse completes a longer lunar cycle that began with intentions set (consciously or unconsciously) at the time of the NEW MOON in Sagittarius on or shortly after November 26th, 2019.  Do you remember what was happening in your life that has in some way led to this moment? It may also be useful to recall the intentions you set, thoughts, reflections you had recently, at the time of the NEW MOON in GEMINI on May 22nd.  Consider what you need to let go of now is in the spirit of opening the path to what you want to manifest in your life. 


TAURUS & Taurus Rising:

Under this Eclipse it can be difficult to shake the feeling that ‘this’ is not enough. It’s driven by the fact that you know you are worth more.  However,  receiving your due will require navigating quite the learning curve. Undoubtedly there is work involved.  Adding to that it is likely you’re beginning to see different sets of possibilities sprouting in your mind’s eye – like a giant tree producing branch after branch after branch.  That in itself can be somewhat disconcerting for you Taurus.  I am sure you prefer to firmly decide on the destination so you can get to work on plotting the best possible route.  Life probably won't work like that at the moment.  Detours are inevitable.  And so, over-preparing for what may or may not happen can seem like a gargantuan task.

Still, it seems you are challenged to choose AND that will require letting go of someone or something.  As this lunation falls in your financial sector though, all considerations seem to revolve around a common theme – money.  From that perspective then, whether or not you’ll enjoy the journey and the amount of creative freedom taking this path can afford you once you get ‘there,’ ties for second place.

In short, this is the first of a series of eclipses on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis.  Over the next 18 months you will be reshaping beliefs about what you are worth and will be on the path to discovering the benefits of letting go of anything/anyone in the way of you reaching your highest potentials.  It isn’t easy.  Change is not often your strong suit.  Placing yourself in a position where learning new skills and opening yourself up to unfamiliar experiences can be jarring. Still, it is where the wind is blowing Taurus. *Hint: As the North Node rests in Gemini contract work, and creating more than one source of income can work surprisingly well.

GEMINI & Gemini Rising:

The Lunar Eclipse in your opposing sign Sagittarius sends a pretty potent message about responsibility.  What, who, are you really responsible for Gemini?  Yourself, of course, that’s a no brainer.  However, there seems to be added pressure when it comes to intimate relationships, maybe with a business partner, financial obligations?  In fact, all three may come into question as this rather intense Full Moon seeks to put an end to certain beliefs you’ve been carrying around that haven't sufficiently addressed the relationship between your inner world and outer dimensions.

This is the first eclipse of a series that will periodically occur over the next 18 months on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis.  What that means is you are embarking on the first steps of a relatively long process that is bound to 1. reveal how your inner landscape/beliefs about yourself contribute to external circumstances that keep repeating themselves and 2. clarify what is and is not within your control.  Does life just happen to you or are you an active participate in shaping your reality?  These are tough questions – especially for Gemini’s born in early to mid-June or have planets on or near 20 degrees of Gemini.  Life has undoubtedly been, in a word, confusing.

That said it may be wise to give yourself extra breathing room – permit yourself to observe the unfolding of your life over the next few years with loving compassion.  In essence you are shapeshifting – in a way that reveals more of who you really are.  As the Gemini archetype is associated with duality the challenge to integrate all aspects of yourself – including the unsavory aspects reflected back at you, is a mighty mission.  However, one worth the effort.

This FULL MOON Eclipse completes a longer lunar cycle that began with intentions set (consciously or unconsciously) at the time of the NEW MOON in Sagittarius on or shortly after November 26th, 2019.  Do you remember what was happening in your life that has in some way led to this moment? It may also be useful to recall the intentions you set, thoughts, reflections you had recently, at the time of the NEW MOON in GEMINI on May 22nd.  Consider what you need to let go of now is in the spirit of opening the path to what you want to manifest in your life. 


CANCER & Cancer Rising:

There seems to be too much to think about Cancer – to the point that it’s as if you are attempting to organize every droplet of an ocean spray.  While analysing details isn’t the worst use of your time, focusing too intently on one train of thought can distort all else.  Time, too, seems to be of greater importance – the idea that if you don’t decide now, do something now, all will be lost.  That isn’t true of course, life unfolds in its own time. So if you are feeling the pressure know that under this Full Moon Eclipse there will come sweet relief.  That doesn’t mean you’ll have it all figured out, only that it becomes clear that there is only so much you can do in any given moment.  In fact, since this Eclipse falls in your health sector, the best thing you can do is shift your focus on decompressing. The alternative (likely less effective) option is to continue drumming up what energy you do have to focus on a tiny keyhole you haven’t really identified yet.

Adding to the influence of this Eclipse are several other planets housed in highly changeable signs directly affecting this lunation. Little is written in stone – we are all in the midst of morphing our inner landscapes. And so going with the flow really is near mandatory. For instance, Mars is in dreamworld Pisces.  The drive needed to continue fussing over details that aren’t coming together is bound to evaporate anyway.  And the Sun and Venus (still sluggish in backward motion) also happen to be in your solar twelfth house of repose, or ‘undoing’.  To be perfectly clear, then, this isn’t the best time to gather your forces, charge ahead OR make hefty decisions.  Rather, it’s a time to let go and maybe just let yourself be. That said, may I suggest allowing your mind to drift easily in and out of the possibilities? Perhaps envisioning that ocean spray as a well-meant offering of refreshment on a hot day, wave after wave.

LEO & Leo Rising:

The space and time you have available right now is everything Leo.  And so, there may be a temptation to focus on creating even more room for yourself.  However, under this eclipse,  influenced by other mutable (highly changeable) forces in play, more of anything isn’t necessarily better at the moment. In one vein, it’s true that letting go, finishing up or putting an end to some things can indeed afford you the space (freedom?) you’re seeking.  Yet it seems more precise to say the cosmic push is ultimately encouraging you to clear the decks not to increase your space but rather help you clarify key areas worthy of focus.  For instance, not all of your friendships, associations are worth the effort you put in to constantly maintain the connection. Put another way, if you are a writer too many words, too many plot twists can divide the attention of your audience, in effect diffusing the meaning you were hoping to get across.

That said, this is only the first eclipse of a series on the Sagittarius/Gemini axis that will occur periodically over the next 18 months.   It will work to shift, not only how you express yourself, but who and what you choose to associate yourself with wholeheartedly.   It isn’t likely to be an easy process as Leos tend to revel in attention, where the more the merrier often rings true.  And so, finding your comfort zone while exploring a new network of associations, with folks that resonate with a newly evolving style of self-expression can be disorienting.

VIRGO & Virgo Rising:

Environment matters doesn’t Virgo? This Lunar Eclipse is bound to shine a mighty wide spotlight on that notion. You may feel caged in physically, with an urge to free yourself from the clutter. Perhaps folks in your immediate surroundings just don’t seem to jive with deeper urgings of your soul – stifling expressions that are begging to move from bud to blossom. If you are alone maybe this is a case of cabin fever where you are craving time with those near and dear. Whatever the case, it seems you’ll be acting like a duck out of water, instinctively compelled to shake ‘it’ all off, flit and fly to a more fitting space -even if only temporarily.

You have choices Virgo – probably too many.  The Sun & Venus are fickle at the moment too, as if they are giant magnets toying with your internal compass.  And so, your best bet at locating due north is to look up, tune into the most obvious signs and observe how your heart reacts.  The answer is there, in its simplest form, in the subtleness of a heartbeat – something that’s probably drowned out by all the clutter and clang. *Some Virgos might have to drop the guilt for a minute to clear their own air.

This is the first of a series of eclipses that will shift the way you move in life for the next 18 months.  It isn’t easy as you’ll be in a position where you are re-examining what and who you believe in, yourself included. What’s most uncomfortable about this process is there are likely to be more questions than answers about your career, how and where you live.  *Hint:  As the North Node rests in Gemini working towards improving your career, status & and clarifying long-term goals (the ones your heart truly responds well to) will ensure you’re moving with the wind.

LIBRA & Libra Rising:

This Full Moon Eclipse finds you chewing at the bit wanting to take action, any action. Feeling an urge to stir the pot? If you are it probably isn’t about causing trouble.  Rather the air around you may simply seem stagnant, where you are left craving the winds of change to bring on the next new experience already. Perhaps any kind of social activity -including chatting on the phone or sending out messages to folks you haven’t talked to in ages will suffice.  In any case, however you choose to alleviate the pressure it will produce just the kind of breathing room you’re needing. In other words, while life can simultaneously feel stagnant AND scattered mixing it up can work wonders to soothe your soul.

This is only the first eclipse of a series on the Sagittarius/ Gemini axis that will occur periodically over the next 18 months.  Not all of the eclipses will have quite the same effect.  Still the underlying theme meant to shift your perspective (and so catalyse a different set of life experiences, as yet unfamiliar to you) hinges on 1. What you do with the information you have and 2. how you wield it to work for you under a constantly changing set of circumstances. *Hint: There is likely more to gain from confessing what you don’t know.

“What a large volume of adventures may be grasped within the span of his little life by him who interests his heart in everything.” ― Laurence Sterne

This FULL MOON Eclipse completes a longer lunar cycle that began with intentions set (consciously or unconsciously) at the time of the NEW MOON in Sagittarius on or shortly after November 26th, 2019.  Do you remember what was happening in your life that has in some way led to this moment? It may also be useful to recall the intentions you set, thoughts, reflections you had recently, at the time of the NEW MOON in GEMINI on May 22nd.  Consider what you need to let go of now is in the spirit of opening the path to what you want to manifest in your life. 


SCORPIO & Scorpio Rising:

If ‘it’ is not an immediate concern letting go, even if that means setting it aside for now might be the only way to ease your mind Scorpio. Truth is, whatever has been weighing on you (likely something to do with finances, children, a creative endeavour) requires a certain steadiness of heart.  And that doesn’t seem to be the case at the moment.  It may not all be playing out in your personal life either.

The world around you is rapidly changing.  Virtually anything you have previously relied on is subject to an increasing array of ever-changing variables. That said, protecting your own interests – handling the details involved in strengthening your position from the standpoint of the here & now is key.  In other words, aiming to fortify yourself from the inside out will soon enough ensure you are operating with the best vantage point possible.  Also, it may be wise to consider a different perspective from someone who you know can remain objective or someone far removed from the situation.

This eclipse is the first in a series on the Sagittarius/Gemini axis that will occur periodically for the next 18 months or so. Financial decisions, foreign/legal affairs and relationships are apt to be the main pivot points leading your life in another direction (perhaps one that you hadn’t consciously planned on, at least not yet).  *Hint: The North Node will rest in Gemini during this time suggesting that if you focus your efforts on handling joint resources, debts, and the give and take balance in your love life the wind will move your sails around many a storm.

SAGITTARIUS & Sagittarius Rising:

If you are not in a position where you feel your worth is being recognized, or the effort you put out doesn’t match what’s coming in (financially and/or in relationship to a certain someone) this is going to be a tough Full Moon for you Sagittarius. The trouble is there doesn’t seem to be an easy way out either. There isn’t one quick move you can make – at least one that promises full satisfaction in an immediate sense.

In fact, you may be somewhat lost in space unable to determine exactly what it is you want in the first place.  It can feel as though the goal post keeps planting itself in different territory.  And every time it does, you become aware of a new set of obstacles you’ll have to contend with to get ‘there’.

Believe it or not there are several strategies that can help you gain some clarity. The first is keeping busy even if you have to suffer the discomfort of not knowing exactly where you are going or often find you’re hopelessly caught up in the details. Second, and more importantly, observing the little things that make you feel lighter, happier can naturally move you into a space where you recognize what is no longer worth fussing about. The latter works in sneaky kind of way as you’ll be clearing obstacles from all paths available to you. Eventually one of those goal posts will be within reach. On top of that keeping busy can prevent you from falling into the day dream zone, filled with idealistic promise that really only saps your motivation.

In short, this is the first of a series of eclipses on the axis of Sagittarius & Gemini that will alter your relationships, concept of commitment & responsibility AND how you identify with yourself for the next 18 months.  It isn’t easy. What’s most uncomfortable about this process is there are likely to be more questions than answers about who you are from the inside out and vice versa.  *Hint: As the North Node rests in Gemini if your aim is to improve your relationships, communication style and hone your improvisational skills the wind has got your back.

CAPRICORN & Capricorn Rising:

Broadly speaking you may be having a hard time figuring out just what and who you believe in anymore Capricorn. That includes believing in yourself too by the way. What I am sure you do know is that you are capable of succeeding at virtually anything.  It’s often just a matter of choosing what’s practical + devising a solid plan + having the patience to hold course and the willingness to put in a little extra elbow grease.  If you are a Capricorn who has already managed to secure a spot higher up you’ll be more concerned with maintaining your position & exploring possibilities to ensure you remain on the upward path.

In any case, most Capricorns will be looking to improve their station by learning how to wriggle themselves into the best-case scenario. Obvious strategies include paying attention to 1. health, which, has a pronounced influence on how well you communicate and connect with others, 2. what you’re feeding your brain, literally, and in terms of information and 3. how you use your knowledge & life experience to enrich others.

In short, this is the first of a series of eclipses that will impact your health & lifestyle for the next 18 months Capricorn.  It isn’t easy. You will be challenged to re-examine your idea of success based on beliefs beyond those of material world achievements & social status. *Hint:  As the North Node rests in Gemini health & well-being (of mind, body & soul) blows away any and all other considerations.

AQUARIUS & Aquarius Rising:

Someone is watching over you Aquarius and if you can’t actually see them something in you just knows they are there.  In the same way you know the world is changing fast yet can’t seem to wrap your mind around the concept of time.  And so you’re bound to be frustrated as your mind lobs in and out of these oddly conceivable spaces. If you’ll permit me to use one more metaphor to describe the current atmosphere it’s as if the freedom you seek is right in front of you but you just can’t seem to wriggle the key the right way.

Needless to say any kind of distraction is bound to be more frustrating than usual. Your best bet at a time like this?  Consider limiting distractions by focusing on anything and everything that tickles your heart.  Remember that someone watching over you? They are trying to remind you that th other side of that door, supposedly leading to a better place, starts with finding it within yourself first.  Cliché new age hogwash? Don’t knock it till you try it 🙂

This is the first eclipse of series that will take place on the Sagittarius/Gemini axis over the next 18 months or so.  The underlying theme is set to shift who you associate with workwise, socially, and can even impact who you stand with politically.  As the North Node rests in Gemini the winds are likely to keep pushing you toward whatever and whomever resonates with the same brand of love you often hold in reservation.  In short, it’s pretty simple when you’re done making it complicated.

PISCES & Pisces Rising:

Looking for a brighter space? Wanting to create a brighter future?  It starts with surrounding yourself with brighter people Pisces. Maybe your long terms plans haven’t exactly panned out, certain friendships are falling away or you’ve been thrown off course semi-recently.  Yet, there are likely to be hints on or near this eclipse that make you wonder if this hasn’t all been a blessing in disguise.  In fact, as certain people leave your life new connections may already be starting to form and more possibilities are opening themselves up to you in your mind’s eye.  While you may not be able to clarify exactly where you are headed, one thing is for sure, ridding yourself of anything or anyone that has become too much of burden, can change the scene (of both your inner and outer world) considerably.

That said, you may still feel a bit scattered around the time of the eclipse.  Venus continues backtracking in your domestic sector suggesting you are pressed to make a decision about how and where you live.  And, along with other planets in mutable (changeable) signs, Neptune, Mars AND the Moon, it seems life can move in any direction you want.  The trouble is having too many options can make it increasingly difficult to focus in one direction long enough to actually make a change.  May I suggest keeping it open until after the eclipse if possible?  You may find that what you are looking for actually finds it's way to you - or you'll at least take notice of more than a few signs that can help lead the way.

This is the first eclipse of series that will take place on the Sagittarius/Gemini axis over the next 18 months or so.  The underlying theme is set to shift your career direction and matters concerning home and family.   As the North Node rests in Gemini if greater effort is made to settle down & improve your relationships you'll, essentially be moving with the wind.
