On Saturday at 12:25 am EDT is the Sagittarius Full Moon. It is the last of the three spring eclipses, this one a lunar eclipse with the Moon in early Sagittarius and the Sun opposite in early Gemini. We are being asked by this Full Moon to go beyond any doubts we may have about whether we’ve made progress trying to change emotional patterns, and to acknowledge how far we have in fact come.
Eclipses are opportunities to make desired progress in our lives, often in quantum leaps. They also facilitate the changing of old patterns and habits that aren’t serving us, and the creation of new ones.
We have been through a series of eclipses since the end of April; if you have felt like you’ve been moving through multiple doorways, you’re not alone.
Each new door takes us to a very different type of landscape, though there have been common themes around emotional and sexual healing and how we approach the concept of value, particularly our own.
It’s like we’ve been able to visit the same material from multiple viewpoints, allowing us to get a detailed picture of what we’re working through and how we can restructure our lives to more closely align with who we are at our very core. With this lunar eclipse occurring between Sagittarius and Gemini, we get a picture of the relationship in our lives between information and meaning. The Moon and the Sun represent two different ways of collecting information — through our emotional and physical senses.
If the Sun in Gemini loses touch with the bigger picture, with the value of the information it is gathering, then everything can seem trivial or meaningless. Information and facts gain value from being placed in context, which the Moon in Sagittarius provides. Sagittarius brings to the equation a reminder of the importance of understanding the value and purpose of information, and seeing the larger picture within which information fits.
