Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius 26 May

Tomorrow’s lunar eclipse falls at 4:13 am PT, at 5° 25’ Sagittarius. A lunar eclipse is a Full Moon that falls near one of the Moon's nodes. The nodes are hypothetical points where the Moon descends (south node) or ascends (north node) the ecliptic (the imaginary path of the sun around the earth). An eclipse occurs when the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon, preventing the Moon from reflecting the Sun’s light. The thing to remember with eclipses is this: they are harbingers of change and if you're consciously manifesting or practicing magick you don't want to work with this energy because the energy is unpredictable (and our life-giving luminaries are compromised).

This lunar eclipse occurs close to the South Node in Sagittarius. The South Node, also referred to as the Dragon’s tail (Ketu) is associated with patterns of familiarity or comfort. With an eclipse on the South Node in the sign of knowledge, wisdom and philosophy there’s a good chance we’re all processing new information that is challenging old beliefs and removing previous conditions or patterns. While this is transformative energy it’s worth remembering that the mutable T-square created by the Moon in Sagittarius to Jupiter in Pisces opposing the Sun in Gemini indicates tension and resistance.
