When tuning into this Moon today – 24 May – I feel this is a Moon for tending to the copious amounts of seeds we have been planting since the last Sagittarius Full & New Moons – 17 June & 26 November 2019 respectively. Whilst simultaneously once and for all releasing ourselves from all that is holding us back from a successful harvest!!
Intuitively without looking at the charts, I am strongly feeling the Gemini New Moon pushed us to step into our truths and Souls Missions – this Moon I feel is a check up on that energy to see how we are tracking and if we still have our eyes on the prize, so-to-speak. Ensuring our aim is true. Ensuring our aim as remained higher than we ever thought we would have the courage to do so!! And encouraging us to let go of the past once again.
This is the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse to reaffirm and call in the additional manifestations that will support your Soul’s mission this incarnation. The manifestations that haven’t already presented themselves to you in these past three weeks.
This Lunar Eclipse ties directly back to the last Sag Moon Lunar Eclipse we experienced back on June 15 2011 in my opinion and intuitive feeling, Astrologically. Astronomically however using the Saros cycle Series, we would need to go back to 26 May 2002, the last time we experienced a 111 Penumbral Eclipse.
The 2011 event preceded by a mere three days, the mass flooding in Northern Australia and was when Neptune squared Mars. I mention this, as for approx. three weeks – since the 12 May 2020 – I have been feeling a mass flooding is on our near horizon again. I was unable to pin-point where until now.
Intuitively I feel, Northern NSW will be hit hardest, as too will there be flooding on the Murray River, particularly around the river basin. The later was shown to me on 23 May 2020, whilst discussing the plight of the Brumbies of Victoria with a beloved Sister on our way to Barmah that day. I am yet to find something solid in the Astrology to back this premonition.
However, I feel it so strongly and the wilder the cosmic orchestra plays her symphony, I have been feeling the anticipation of the crescendo beginning to build. It already has been, and will continue to, rise & rise, again & again. I sometimes feel as though I am almost holding my breath as I await for the wave to peak and crash out, spilling us all in the white-wash of this cosmic vibrational apex. Lucky for me, I remember to breathe. As too should you beloved.
So let’s look at the charts!! Let’s see what messages and guidance the cosmos is offering us right now with this Full "Strawberry" Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius!!
It goes without saying, this Full Moon will be a most powerful one when we have the energies being supported and amplified by the Penumbral Eclipse, only further encouraging us to release and let go of that which is not in alignment, nor congruent to, our highest good and Souls missions in this incarnation.
The Jupitarian energies being afforded by this placement are supportive of expansion being in Sagittarius, yes. However, as you can see in the charts, there is a lot more at play than just the Moon and her placement above us.
We can see that the Neptune Mars conjunction is squaring off to the Sun Venus Rx conjunction, which we know on a Full Moon, equals an opposition to the Sun.
This gives me the feelings of an internal revision or an audit almost. As the energy of Mars does not mess around, and when in a square, gives me the impression of an Aries bull in a china shop.
Especially as it is now conjunct to Neptune, it is well and truly in the Piscean fish bowl and carousel energies I have been referring to amongst friends since January. The 7th House placement is also significant to me here too as it begs the question.
Where are we deluding ourselves and others when it comes to our value? And the value we place on others?
This house being ruled by Libra, thus Venus, really does amplify the Soul lesson of Libra in my opinion. Which, in my own summary, is that of learning to balance out energies within relationships and connections. Learning to not over give when there is minimal to no reciprocity.
When looking at the Geo charts, I was specifically drawn to the Traditional Fixed Star Chart – Chart # 4.
As not only does this include the Natal Chart it also breaks down the Decans into their secondary divisions, called munifices. From which we can see below the surface energies, there is actually a strong undercurrent of this Venutian energy at play here. And with Venus retrograding during this time, to me only amplifies the revisionary energy I mentioned earlier.
There is one more aspect in which felt strongly drawn to highlight for this Full Moon Penumbral Eclipse too. Which are the conjunctions to the luminaries and Venus.
Sister Luna will be conjunct the fixed star of Antares. It will be in a separating orb of 5° 32', by my calculations and will be a minor focus for this article.
Meanwhile in opposition the Sun will be conjunct the fixed star of Capella and Venus will conjunct Aldebaran – in applying and separating conjunctions, respectively. I have included links below for more information on each.
The fixed star of Antares in the centre of the constellation of Scorpio. Is most commonly known as ‘ the Heart of the Scorpion’ thus adding to the Mars energy as it was traditionally ruled. It also offers Jupitarian energy which Grotius (1583-1645) found synonymous with the Bat. Which for me personally holds a tremendously powerful medicine within Shamanic tradition. That of discernment amongst others.
Hesychics (5th Cen. A.D.) named Antares a Rebel and Tyrannus, and Caesius (17th Cen. Dutch Astronomer) named it Insidiata, ‘the lurking one’.
Many others have ascribed as many names, such as; the Heart, the Azure Dragon, the ‘Fire Star’, the Guardian of the Heavens, ‘Lord of the Seed’, ‘Watcher of the West’, the ‘Creator of Prosperity’ and was seen to represent both Egyptian Goddess’ Selkit and Isis, and lastly, ‘The Hero of Antara of the Golden Mu’allakat’.
This only furthers my notions of this Full Moon really encouraging us all, beyond our limitations, into standing firm in our heart-based convictions and aiming toward that which we know i
