Eclipses signal in great new beginnings and great new endings. The LUNAR ECLIPSE happening this month is conjunct the south node, bringing closures and culminations, turning the page for a new chapter to be written. Those with planets or points from 20°-29° in fixed signs (TAURUS, LEO, SCORPIO, AQUARIUS) can feel this eclipse strongly.

 Also, if born on the following dates, this eclipse may affect you more than most:

TAURUS: May 10 – May 19

LEO:  August 12 – August 21

SCORPIO: November 12 – November 21

AQUARIUS: January 26 – February 4


A set of eclipses happen every 6 months, so nothing to be afraid of! They are fairly regular occurrences in time. However, there are important reminders that one should take note of in the event of an eclipse. Some of which are as follows:

1. Avoid making life changing decisions at least a week before and after the eclipse. Eclipses are shadows covering the light, so awareness is compromised. It’s best to go with the flow for now.

2. Be open to changes manifesting. During this time, its important to accept the progression of life situations. Holding on or fighting transformation may cause more stress and anxiety.

3. Expect heightened emotions. Embracing feelings does not require one to act on them or to make decisions based on them. Respect your emotions, allow it to exist, and let it run its course. To know that most people around you might be feeling out of sorts too, can help with the bubble of isolation that one might feel during these periods.


Scorpio is the sign that represents transformation and change. The death of nature, as it prepares for the rebirth that will happen in spring. It’s all about life being prepared outside of sight; life stirring from underneath, as externally, trees lose their leaves, and animals hibernate, in preparation for a cold winter. It is precisely this period of pause, that allows for the ability to be reborn, fresh and new. It is the catterpillar, letting go of life as it builds a cocoon of darkness. On the other end of this painful process, waiting, is the ability for flight.

This Lunar Eclipse, as mentioned, is conjunct the south node, a point that determines areas in our life where we feel ‘stuck’. For some, it may be an area of life where we feel too much comfort to the point of stagmation. For some, these are areas that feel like chains almost, areas that we want to leave but feel like we can’t.  Events brought about by this eclipse may serve as a nudge from the Universe, a definitive closing of a symbolical door that severs us from whatever it is in our lives that hinder our freedom and growth. This eclipse also squares Saturn, the planet of restriction, limitation and discipline. This adds toughness in terms of the energy we’ll all experience. There are difficult adjustments necessary, in order to cater to the requirements of this lunation. Goodbyes, are always hard. However, with the Moon harmoniously conversing with Mars, the planet of movement, assertion and motivation, we have it in us to rise to the challenge. The odds may seem like they are against us, making success sweeter once we get to the other side.
