THE FIRST of our two eclipses occurs this week: a partial Lunar Eclipse perfects this Friday when the Taurus Moon opposes the Sun in Scorpio. Eclipses occur in cycles, activating a specific pair of zodiac signs for about two years and then moving on to another pair of signs. With this Friday's event, eclipses start a gradual shift from Gemini/Sagittarius to Taurus/Scorpio, which means we are moving out of a two-year thinking/acting phase and into a new two-year feeling/sensing phase.
With the Taurus/Scorpio axis activated at this Lunar Eclipse, we are specifically working with issues of security and stability, loyalty and trust, finances and possessions, profound change and uncertainty, and deep emotional responses to feeling a lack of control. Our capacity to stay grounded and centered amidst transitional times will be tested.
A FULL MOON always amplifies emotions, and a Lunar Eclipse — which is like a mega Full Moon — tends to bring many deep feelings to the surface. This effect is heightened with this particular Lunar Eclipse, since the Sun is in psychotherapeutic Scorpio and magnifier Jupiter is in square aspect to the eclipse.
With Jupiter square both the Sun and Moon, a configuration called a "T-square" is formed at the time of the eclipse. Jupiter is at the apex position of this T-square (at the base of the stem of the letter "T"), while the two lights hold the ends of the crossbar at the top of the letter. With Jupiter at the apex of a T-square in fixed signs, beliefs can be too rigid, manifesting as intolerance, self-righteousness, and dogmatism. This T-square requires that we learn to be more open-minded and flexible in our thinking, allowing for diverse perspectives to exist without judgment.
We will be working with the energies of this eclipse throughout the coming week, but most powerfully on...
