The energies of the May 24/25 full moon eclipse in Sagittarius coincide with the Festival of Goodwill to help anchor and amplify the new time on planet Earth. The Festival of Goodwill each year seeks to create a unified field of love, corporation and peace, and over the next few days, those energies will be amplified by the powerful lunar eclipse.
Jupiter Highlights Expansion During the May 24/25 Eclipse
Expansion is a central theme of this lunar eclipse in Sagittarius. Jupiter, as lord of the eclipse, highlights expansion, new visions, prosperity and abundance.
A lunar eclipse occurs during a full moon when the earth moves exactly between the sun and moon, effectively short-circuiting their natural connection. The lunar eclipse occurs at 4° Sagittarius and its effects are being experienced by many. The effects of some eclipses can be felt three months or more prior to an eclipse and for up to a year afterward.
Eclipses are major turning points at both the collective and individual levels. The sign of an eclipse offers clues as to the themes that are due for a change. At the personal level, the planets and houses impacted by an eclipse offer insights into the transformative changes that beacon to us on the road ahead.
During the May 24/25 eclipse, we are asked collectively and individually to examine if anything stands in the way of our spiritual expansion, visions and ability to receive the love and abundance that is our natural birthright. Sagittarius seeks the path of expansion, justice, generosity, abundance, prosperity and optimism. These are the ingredients needed at this time to help shift humanity to timelines aligned with the new time. It is time to jettison old beliefs and world views that limit and enslave us and prevent us from recognizing our true spiritual nature and identity.
Our Astrology Chart Depicts the Personal Impact of an Eclipse
Everyone feels the effects of an eclipse differently. The type of impact and its intensity and duration depends on where an eclipse falls in a person’s astrology chart. If an eclipse falls within 3° of a planet or an important point in your chart by conjunction or opposition, it is of special significance to you. The nature of the planet impacted by the eclipse offers clues to the experiences that lie ahead.
The energies of a lunar eclipse have a way of magnifying any unresolved emotional issues so we can shine the light of our present-moment awareness on them. Our spiritual communion and insights are intensified during a full moon and even more so during a lunar eclipse, heightening our powers of spiritual perception. Combined, these allow us to heal and release emotional energy held in past traumas.
Navigating by Intuitive Knowing during the Eclipse
Shifting emotions during this time make it difficult to navigate in our usual way. It’ll be necessary for us to stay tuned to our intuitive knowing to understand the energetic shifts that will take place over the next few days. This is a good time to examine our beliefs and observe if we hold any beliefs that are limiting us from experiencing our true path of joy.
You may notice during this time odd and chaotic events unfolding in the world around you. You may witness others struggling with the intense energies of this time. Whatever is going on around you, hold in awareness that the powerful energies are affecting others as well. Entering a place of observing without acting is wise during this time. It is also wise to refrain from making major life decisions during this period.
Interpreting the Symbols of Events Unfolding during an Eclipse
It is helpful to observe details of events that happen during this time and interpret the symbols of these events just as you when interpret the symbols of a dream. This is a good technique to use any time, but the heightened energies of the eclipse make this time ripe for powerful insights and breakthroughs that can change the course of one’s life.
Coming Home to Center
This is a time to examine the ways in which we may be overextended. In order to step more fully into the new time it’s important to build a strong foundation to support our explorations in consciousness. It may be challenging to build this foundation when we are overextended in ways that drain our energy and distract our focus. Thought viruses, for example, tend to capture and enslave our attention in ways that are both depleting and destructive. As we bring our energy into harmony and balance and focus it toward fulfilling our spiritual purpose, we are able to make the most of the opportunities afforded by this eclipse.
Joining the Festival of Goodwill in Consciousness
This eclipse coincides with the Festival of Goodwill, a time when the veils between dimensions thin and we’re far more able to tune into cosmic energy radiated by high spiritual beings, and from the stars and constellations that radiate very high spiritual energy. The full moon during Gemini is a time when people of every spiritual path join together in consciousness to focus spiritual energy needed to build a world of justice, unity, love and peace. Everyone everywhere is able to join the Festival of Goodwill in consciousness. Even if you are unable to tune in at the exact time of the eclipse, you can enter a meditative state anytime in the next few days and allow yourself to be transported to the festival.
