On May 26th we have an extremely powerful Blood Moon in Sagittarius that heavily opposes the Sun, Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, and also Neptune, creating a chaotic T-Square. Jupiter is Sagittarius’s ruling sign, which fuels the opposition within this T-Square, manifesting in somewhat of a religious war – think of the crusades, where each opposing side feels they are right and fight each other to the death. It may be best to stay out of drama, primarily on social media where opinions are plenty and in today’s World people are resorting to cancel culture and unfriending one another because of opposing opinions, even if they have been friends for years. Feathers are most definitely going to get ruffled. Not to mention, Mercury is also within its shadow zone and preparing to go retrograde with both Pluto and Saturn, and so it adds even more fuel to this dumpster fire of misunderstandings and heightened sensitivity.
This Total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is not only chaotic, but it is also signaling a time, for about the next 6 months until the next Lunar Eclipse, in which we are going to be undergoing a heavy dose of karmic exchanges, lessons, and also rewards. As always, those who have done the work and chose to walk that higher path will be receiving the rewards due, however, that doesn’t shield them from lessons that may cycle down, and many of these lessons are going to impact their belief system, perspective, and what causes they align with.
This is also a closeout lunar cycle from the first Eclipse of the year from January – and so the focus is not only on new beginnings, but also what must end in order to make room to usher in the new. This is also supported with this current retrograde season, so to internalize the changes, to integrate the lessons, and to bring higher awareness of the new goals and pathways we are destined to take.
This is truly a time of bringing more independence into our lives in terms of our personal and spiritual beliefs, to walk away from the status quo and to find the pathway which speaks to us – to walk to the beat of our own drum rather than mimicking the same dance that everyone is doing
We live in a World where sadly political drama takes center stage, but currently, religion is slowly joining those ranks. Sagittarius is the rebel who chooses freedom over conformity and a more philosophical approach to religious ideologies. And so being closed in a religious box where asking questions is deemed as sin, or short answers are to be accepted, is going to collapse. With Pisces recently residing in Jupiter and also home in Neptune, we can expect this opposition to be quite dramatic in the affect that our personal and spiritual beliefs are going to be put on display and dissected to see if it truly aligns with what we truly feel within our hearts and souls, compared to what we have been subjected to in terms of programming from society or our upbringing. This is where the rebel that Sagittarius is offers a boost of energy so to influence us to ask questions and to become more open minded, ready to learn, and willing to spiral out of any spiritual ideology that was given to us rather than found on our own.
This is a time of spiritual and personal exploration, in which our mind, heart, and our souls become the area of interest, to find who we truly are at the core, so to look outwardly to our relationships, establishments, and social constructs to determine if we are truly in alignment and living our authentic truth.
During this Lunar Eclipse, spend time alone and meditate, pray, or really consider where you are within your spiritual beliefs, ideologies, and how you interact with your soul, source, or whatever higher power you believe in on a daily basis. Think of how your spiritual beliefs impact your life and those around you, and vice versa, how those around you and their spiritual beliefs impact you.

Eclipses are like super-powered New & Full Moons, but also endowed with chaotic energy, and so while it can empower our rituals or intentions, it can also send them all over the place because of the chaotic energy they encompass. It is vital to ensure that your intentions are precise and that whatever you are focused on manifesting, is connected to your higher purpose, otherwise you can end up dealing with a backlash of energy that propels you into a cycle of new lessons that push you to realize why certain desires or pathways are not good for you. For example, if you are desiring a romantic relationship but have issues with loving yourself, then the next 6 months until the portal of Eclipses is over, is going to signal a time of learning to love yourself by going through situations that focus on where you lack the self-love you need.
This particular Lunar Eclipse is perfect for the focus of release and what is not in alignment within your life, preventing you from manifesting your desires. The best way to incorporate this sort of ritual, or meditation and focus into your life is first by cleaning up your physical space. Gemini is ruling so much of the cosmos right now and is heavily opposed by these lunar energies, and so it would make sense to clean out that metaphorical junk or clutter from the mind, by doing so physical in your sacred space – as they say, a cluttered space creates a cluttered mind! And so, a clean space would also influence your mind to be the same as well.

Your insecurities may be triggered during this Lunar cycle, causing you to really dissect your relationship within yourself, to understand how you place your own worth. Many of your goals, dreams, and desires are in arm’s reach, but it may be difficult to accomplish anything because of the relationship you have with yourself. This may be caused from your upbringing, romantic relationships, or something that had programmed a poor image of self into you, and cycles are going to repeat so to understand the core of what caused this, so you can better resolve it and make those goals, dreams, and desires all the more reachable with a healthier attitude about yourself.
It’s time to take a bold step forward and to initiate something that has been on your mind. Nothing is standing in your way but yourself and your own inhibitions. Change is on the horizon, and it starts with you setting the groundwork for it. While you are quite reluctant of change, keep in mind that it is positive and caters to the growth you need and desire.
Rest, Gemini, you are only human. While you want to jump into something while still carrying every other project, hobby, and task on your back, you need to take a little time to rest and find your center. You cannot keep rushing forward if you’re not feeling your best, otherwise you risk a major burn out that could derail important projects and pathways in the future. Rest assured, the World will continue to turn while you take a little time to restore yourself, and everything will be as you left it when you come back.
What you want most is to feel comfortable within your own skin, to feel that your passions mean something, and that you are headed down an important pathway. You just want your efforts to be realized. You will have all of this, but first it takes a little belief in yourself. While you project this increase of self-love and worth, do be weary of those around you who feed from your light – be selective with who you allow in your circle – if they drain you, then you need to set boundaries and stick with those who instead fuel you.
Positive changes are available to you now, Leo, and all you have to do is reach for them. You’ve been through the ringer in the past while, and you tried your best to keep your head above water while treading in difficult seas. The next 6 months may be quite rewarding to you, and you most certainly deserve the positive surprises that are bound to come your way.
Get out of your own way, Virgo, because great things are coming. You have been working hard at something that means a lot to you, either a new project, goal, or perhaps you have been praying for some type of change that will open more doors for you. Whatever the case, an opportunity will present itself very soon which will allow for you to take that big step towards allowing your manifestations to take form.
All eyes are on you, Libra, as you showcase something that means a lot to you, that you’ve put a lot of effort into, and that you are incredibly passionate about. As you soak in the applause while standing in the spotlight, do be mindful of too much activity going on at once and finding it difficult to navigate through it all, as you may have a number of opportunities being presented to you, and you don’t want to overburden yourself with too much. Be selective, and be patient, the right opportunity which will expand your passions is on the way.
You may feel that there is something going on behind the scenes and not everyone around you is being completely honest. You are natural suspicious, but this time, you feel that your suspicions are right. It may be best to keep your thoughts to yourself as you do a little investigation and determine the truth behind the matter. Spend some time alone so to ground and center yourself so to allow your intuition to present the messages you need clearly without too much emotional energy intertwining the messages.
It may be time to walk away from something that you had once invested a lot of your time and energy into, and this may not be the easiest thing for you to do, either. While you are quick to bounce back from disappointment and find the light within any dark tunnel, it may be a bit difficult to do this time around because of the emotional attachments. It is incredibly important to allow yourself to grieve and accept this loss for what it is before moving forward – you need to heal, and this is the release you have needed in order to truly know what you want rather than masking your desires with what you ‘thought’ you had wanted because of what has been familiar.
Perspective is everything, Capricorn, and with the wrong mindset, you can easily set yourself up for failure. You might be nervous about an opportunity that seems all too familiar in the fact that you had tried and failed at it in the past. Things are different now – you are more experienced and have learned from your mistakes. You can finally take advantage of this opportunity and experience all that is has to offer with going about things a different way than you had done before.
Something you had asked for not too long ago is finally starting to take shape, it may not have occurred in the way you had expected, but it is happening. Count your blessings and focus on what you are grateful for, so to open the channels of abundance even more.
Support is on the way, Pisces, and it is most definitely needed as well as appreciated. This Eclipse cycle is going to open doors to healing family lines and close friendships, so to elevate them to a higher state which allows for not only a deeper connection to those around you, but also within yourself, which in turn accelerates your talents and attitude about your home and money.
