The Full Moon, living symbol of the light piercing the darkness, shines through the night in Sagittarius, sign of the Higher Knowledge. Isis-Sophia, Goddess of Wisdom, faces the South Node—Cauda Draconis. The tail of the dragon tries to swallow the light of consciousness by means of the shadows of oblivion. The sound of the sistrum, instrument of the goddess, keeps the dragon at bay.
A new series of eclipses is about to start. The next Full Moon on June 5th is going to be a penumbral lunar eclipse at 16° Sagittarius. The following New Moon, an annular solar eclipse taking place in the very heart of the Summer Solstice (1° Cancer). Lastly, the Full Moon of July 5th, ending the series with another penumbral lunar eclipse at 13° Capricorn.
In order to see if and how the eclipse is going to affect you, just check any planet from 14° to 18° Sagittarius in your Natal Chart. Usually, lunar eclipses bring in the following 6 months unexpected revelations that have unexpected consequences. The planet involved, its house placement, and the houses that it rules are going to point out specifically the possible areas of life interested by the event.
In any case, let’s try to remember to connect to our wisdom within. It’s very easy for the forces of summer to dim our consciousness, especially after all these months of lockdown. We all crave sun and freedom. But even though we just want to go back to our normal lives, let’s remember where the wisest part of us lies.
We’re going through a traumatic pandemic. There’s not much we can do but treasuring the experiences we went through. Otherwise it will have been all for nothing, and the desire of having our life back will have obscured the self-knowledge that we had the opportunity to develop these months. “For it is the doom of men that they forget” —Merlin, from Excalibur movie.
