In days gone by, eclipses were scary stuff. Dragons swallowing the sun and the moon. Now, we understand from an astronomical standpoint what happens during an eclipse. But still, from a synchronistic standpoint, there is symbolic significance. As an astrologer, who has studied the significance of what the planetary bodies are up to, I look to what is the symbology of a solar or lunar eclipse.
For example, in your own particular astrology chart (based on your birth time and date and place), I would see where the eclipse would fall in your chart. That would tell me something about what your current experience is like. In the case of a lunar eclipse, I would be shown an area of preparation for you to undergo some letting go, some change that would require an emotional adjustment. Does this mean something negative? No, That is not what it means. It just means that all of life is about cycles and when a cycle is changing to something else, our job is "to go with the flow" and many people do not appreciate nor trust change.
The beauty of a lunar eclipse is that it gives you advance warning. It is like it is saying, change is coming within a year in this area of your life, and you can take your talents and abilities to make it good for you. In an age where staying distracted is the chosen lifestyle of many, eclipses and their messages will tend to go unnoticed.
The lunar eclipse occured today in the signs Sagittarius and Gemini. These two signs will be the most impacted. One thing that may give you a hint of what you need to focus on for the next period of months would be any dreams you can remember from last night. My own dreams last night made me laugh when I woke up due to the message being so clear. I know exactly what I need to do with this eclipse. I wish you the same insights.
If you wish to know more about your chart and what is going on for the next year, feel free to sign up for an astrology reading (see home page under "astrology"), and I will let you know what the stars and eclipses have to say. It is all about making you the captain of your own ship!
