During Eclipse Season we must rethink and reconsider our normal Full and New Moon rituals. Eclipses happen when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are in perfect alignment. This occurs between two and four times each year.
We need to talk about eclipses
Think about what the eclipse actually means. This alignment creates a situation where the light of the Moon (during the lunar eclipse) or the Sun (during a solar eclipse) is obstructed. Thus, the power of the cycle is compromised.
The luminary involved (Sun or Moon) is in the other’s shadow and is not functioning as it usually does
Generally, New Moon and Full Moon rituals are a great way to stay connected to the lunar cycles. However, the Eclipses bring very different energies. Eclipses happen when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are in perfect alignment. This occurs between two and four times each year. There are two types of eclipses. Lunar eclipses happen during a Full Moon and Solar Eclipses happen during a New Moon. Eclipses generally come in pairs and we refer to these times as Eclipse Season.
Rethink your usual Full Moon and New Moon rituals during Eclipse Season
During an eclipse, there is the potential for swift developments and intense periods of growth. Look at your own natal chart to determine what house and at what point the eclipse falls. If it falls at a particularly sensitive point (conjunct a personal planet or angle) watch for the eclipse to impact you directly related to the planet or point involved. If it does not fall at a sensitive point, you may be off the hook for major change. You may not be able to count on that so do take note of any unexpected revisions in the area of life suggested by the house placement over the coming months.
Unanticipated occurrences in your life during these times are pulling you toward a realignment with your truest path forward. These turning points can be chaotic, destabilizing, and challenging.
Hold off on your rituals during eclipse season.
Try a more passive wait-and-see observational approach. Allow the energy of the eclipse to move you without interference. Instead of pushing your own agenda by performing a ritual, stay open and curious about where the universe is taking you. Do a tarot spread, journal, meditate, take a walk in the woods. Stay open to the energy of self-reflection, allow the universe to move you.
Take time to stabilize yourself exactly where you are, listen to the messages that come rather than trying to direct your future.
Today’s Full Moon occurs at 27 degrees of Taurus and is exact at 3:58 AM EST. Adjust for your time zone.
Full Moons offer a time of illumination, a time of celebration as we reach the pinnacle of the cycle that began six months ago and the shorter cycle that began two weeks ago. Think of the Full Moon as the apex of two cycles, look for what connects the two. Because this is also an Eclipse. Hold off on the celebration. This is a time for observation and allowing.
In the monthly lunar cycle, the Full Moon brings us to the illumination of what began two weeks ago at the Scorpio New Moon on November 4th. Regarding the larger cycle consider this the point of awareness from the Taurus New Moon on May 11, 2021.
