The telephone is ringing. The flow of information is almost non-stop. People are talking about everything and yet, nothing. The media is full of information and there is not a slow news day in sight. Things are being wrapped up, decisions are being made. Bawdy sexual humor is floating through the airwaves — and maybe someone who launched a lawsuit because of such humor is ready to finally give up the fight and let it ride. The eclipse is when someone will be willing to release a longtime grudge and walk away, bringing a celebration of victory, perhaps, to the opposing party. But not all of the conversation and information is quite true and some is not true at all.
The Moon in Sagittarius is opposing the Sun in Gemini on Friday (Saturday for some) and the chatter happening around this lunar event will be ringing in your ears. Neptune in Pisces is sitting square to them both, forming a t-square in the mutable signs of Gemini, Pisces and Sagittarius — and pouring their energy out on Virgo (meaning: Virgos could find themselves on the receiving end of teasing, ridicule, gossip and lies if they let themselves be provoked or pulled into a less than honest situation)
That means shy, reticent Sun in Virgo people could find themselves in the midst of a firestorm of gossip and maybe even lies. Others would try to victimize you and profit by gossiping or lying about you. In the two week period between May 24-June 7, lay low and avoid getting provoked by other people. The more you fight and defend yourself, the funnier they will find your struggling to be!
Sagittarius energy is optimistic, life of the party energy. I wants to see people happy and enjoying the pleasures of life. It want to live life larger. It does not have many restrictions, if any. If there are some, hey, they can be played with — that would be fun!
Because it is a lunar eclipse, there are endings coming. Look to what ended with the April 24th lunar eclipse in Scorpio. This eclipse is the third in a set and will bring a final ending, albeit a soft one, to whatever area of life it touched for you. It is also the closing to something that has been slowly weeded out of your life in the last two years, since 2001.
Fleet-footed communicator Mercury, the co-ruler of both Gemini and Virgo, is conjunct Big Boy Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius. The gossip, lies and unnecessary chatter will fill the airwaves, social media, traditional media, the neighborhood café, the bus stop, the beauty salon and barbershop, the telephone, the computer, and your kitchen table.
Be careful that you do not spread lies or half-lies about yourself or anyone else. Things will travel quickly.
Be careful with the use of medications and alcohol between now and Monday the 27th.
This eclipse occurs at 4 Sagittarius, which in Sabian Symbols mean “A little child learning to walk with the encouragement of his parents”. With this joyful ending, you can get moving on the new beginning you got a glimpse of two weeks ago. You can begin making progress on your goals, and you can look to some support from authority figures in your life ( a wise mentor, a teacher, a boss, etc). This eclipse signifies the RESOLUTION OF A CONFLICT due to your ability to now make progress and no longer be held back by situations or persons.
The angles this eclipse is challenging, which may clearly show you how you have been helped back and where you can now go, are 4 Gemini (Holly and mistletoe bring Christmas spirit to a home), 4 Virgo (Black and White children play together happily), and 4 Pisces (Heavy car traffic on a narrow isthmus linking two seaside resorts).
Above all, keep a positive perspective, because it is about endings that can be celebrated with champagne, not grieved with tears. Chill the bottle now and be prepared to pour a glass or two with friends or family this weekend.
Where will the eclipse land in your life? Because it is at 4 Sagittarius, it will most strongly affect people with personal planets in Gemini and Sagittarius, Virgo and Pisces. Secondarily, it you have a personal plant at the end of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius, you will see something happen in your life related to the events of May 9/10.
