Your Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius Horoscope & Reflection, According To Your Zodiac Sign
There’s no such thing as coincidences and this is especially true when you reflect on the undeniable correlation between the current events, and the astro-weather. In addition to Pluto Rx in Capricorn dismantling hierarchies and structures — especially those who have misused their power — its conjunction with Jupiter Rx continues to shed light on the injustice that exists in the government as we know it. While Saturn Rx in Aquarius begins to restructure our society, Venus Rx in Gemini continues to square off with Mars-Neptune in Pisces; hence the psychological warfare we’re currently experiencing as a collective. Having said that, this is the beginning of a brand new era and it’s up to us to stand together, and amplify the voices of the black community. We see you, we hear you, we support you, and we stand for justice. #BlackLivesMatter

Welcome to eclipse season 2020.
There’s something undoubtedly unique about Mother Moon and her mystical phases. Each month, we are blessed with the visceral luxury of depending on her eerie darkness, full moon bloom, and everything else in between, for divine insight. La Luna is a heavenly portal between the conscious and the unconscious. She is the most ancient symbol of the feminine psyche and every so often, she joins forces with Father Sun, creating a powerful synergy and potent lunation, also known as an eclipse. An astronomical phenomenon, more than often feared in ancient civilizations, eclipses activate the Nodes of Fate (North and South Node) and bring about momentous change. These cosmic events serve as powerful catalysts for growth, both personally and collectively. The energetic essence of an eclipse depends on the lunar nodes and with the Nodes of Fate (North Node and South Node) activating the axis of Gemini-Sagittarius — aka the axis of knowledge — the upcoming eclipses will revolve around expanding your conscious awareness.
The first of the Gemini-Sagittarius eclipse series will be a full moon penumbral lunar eclipse in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius, and this will take place on June 5 at exactly 3:12 p.m. ET. (FYI: A penumbral eclipse can easily be confused with a regular full moon phase. It happens when the sun, Earth, and moon are imperfectly aligned, as opposed to a total lunar eclipse when the sun, Earth, and moon are exactly aligned.) As you know, the full moon phase is a symbol of spiritual completion and while the full moon lunar eclipse also brings endings, its potency surpasses the full moon’s effects by a longshot. (REMEMBER: Eclipses activate the lunar nodes, and their multidimensionality and karmic influence dominate the sky.) The moon is a symbol of your unconscious mind and emotional world; the sun is a symbol of your conscious mind and divine purpose. Lunar eclipses are powerful lunations that bring unexpected endings, in order to help you release what no longer serves you.
In expansive Sagittarius — amidst its planetary ruler retrogrades through Capricorn — this lunation brings forth the opportunity to say goodbye to the mindset, lifestyle, and philosophies you’ve outgrown, in order to welcome in the new. Spontaneous and risk-taking, Sagittarius’ mutable fire evolves through experience and expands beyond limiting belief systems; therefore, themes revolving around your growth, expansion, and soul’s truth will be top of mind during this time. After all, full moons are a call for balance between the divine feminine and sacred masculine, and this is especially true with Venus retrograde in Gemini. Mercury-ruled Gemini governs the primitive mind and Sagittarius governs the abstract mind. With Venus retrograde in Gemini sitting opposite the moon in Sagittarius, this could create tension between your logical mind versus your desire to venture into unknown territory. Mars-Neptune will also be squaring off with the sun and the moon, so don’t be discouraged if you’re feeling confused or out of touch with your current reality.
The fog stemming from this elusive aspect could easily cloud your judgement, and create a sense of anxiousness. If you feel more tired than usual or perhaps feel the need to dissociate, listen to your body. Take a deep breath and remember, you are exactly where you need to be. Ask the divine source within you to continue guiding you towards the light and more importantly, don’t be afraid to let go of what no longer serves you.
Read your full moon lunar eclipse horoscope and reflection below:
Don’t be afraid to speak your truth, or perhaps discover it along the way, Aries. With the nodes of the moon activating the axis of knowledge — via your third house of communication, immediate networks, and local community + ninth house of education, travel, and foreign concepts — everything related to your individual perceptions will come up for review during this eclipse season. Having said that, the lunar eclipse in Sagittarius will supercharge your wisdom-seeking ninth house of growth, while squaring off with elusive Mars-Neptune in Pisces via your reclusive 12th house of dreams. The future feels hazy and your long-term visions might suddenly vanish from your peripheral view, but this emotional angst and disorientation is only temporary. Is surrendering to the universe a risk you’re willing to take? How can you use your warrior mind and velvet voice for a good cause?
Everything from your personal luxuries to your joint ventures will be highlighted throughout this eclipse season, Taurus. The Nodes of Fate are igniting the axis of security — via your second house of finances, pleasure, and stability + eighth house of sex, transformation, and psychological experiences — encouraging you to reevaluate the wealth you’ve accumulated, from both a tangible and intangible standpoint. The first of the Gemini-Sagittarius eclipse series will be a lunar eclipse in Sagittarius, activating your eighth house of shared resources. Sitting in a challenging square to Mars-Neptune in Pisces via your socially conscious 11th house of friendships, networking, and future goals, this Jupiter-ruled lunation will shed light on the spirit of your mutual agreements and joint ventures. Were your professional partnerships built upon a solid and honest foundation? Has your sense of compassion and team player spirit stifled your personal freedom?
You get what you give, and you’re finally experiencing this firsthand, Gemini. With the nodes of the moon activating your astrological axis — via your first house of self, personality, and physical appearance + seventh house of relationships, compromise, and other people — everything related to “I vs. we,” and vice versa, will come up for review during this eclipse season. More importantly, the lunar eclipse in Sagittarius will ignite your committed seventh house of one-on-one partnerships, while squaring off with elusive Mars-Neptune in Pisces via your ambitious tenth house of career, authority, and reputation in the world. Whether you’ve been aspiring towards a professional goal that seems impossible to obtain, or perhaps overworking yourself to the point of disregarding your partner, this lunation will shed light on what’s gotta give. This could also pertain to an authority figure, or your ability (or lack thereof) to take charge. How can you experience personal and professional freedom, simultaneously? Is there a mutual respect between you and your superiors?
Health is wealth, and it’s time you start taking care of you, Cancer. The North Node of Fate has officially left your sign and shifted into Gemini — via your mystical 12th house of closure, dreams, karma, and all things behind the scenes — bringing you closer to spirit, and your solitude. The lunar eclipse in Sagittarius, however, will supercharge your orderly sixth house of wellness, due diligence, and day-to-day affairs, while squaring off with Mars-Neptune in Pisces via your expansive ninth house of wisdom and personal horizons. Though there are a number of sparkling opportunities over the horizon, it’s important that you recognize whether or not these visions align with your current reality. You’re feeling inspired to venture into the unknown and though it feels like a sign from the universe, there’s still so much more for you to learn. How can you use your long-term visions as a source of inspiration in your day-to-day? Would these adventures upgrade your wellbeing?
Do what makes you feel alive, Leo. With the nodes of the moon activating your axis of authenticity — via your fifth house of joy, romance, children, and creativity + 11th house of friends, hopes, and sense of belonging in the world — themes revolving around your individual expression and sense of camaraderie will be highlighted this eclipse season. In the light of your unique essence, the lunar eclipse in Sagittarius will ignite your expressive fifth house of love, fame, and happiness, while squaring off with Mars-Neptune via your sultry eighth house of intimacy, and psychological experiences. While there are exciting moments ahead, full of adventure and passion, your level of your metamorphosis could also catch you off guard. Don’t be discouraged; Mars-Neptune in Pisces can be just as deceptive as it is alluring. Have you ever taken a step back and reflected on your spiritual evolution? What is your favorite part about stepping in your power?
It’s time for you to open your mind to the infinite possibilities, Virgo. The Nodes of Fate are now activating the axis of your soul’s destiny — via your domestic fourth house of home, ancestral lineage, and emotional foundation + ambitious tenth house of career, authority figures, and legacy in the world — highlighting both your personal and public spheres. The lunar eclipse in Sagittarius, however, will ignite your domestic fourth house of emotional intelligence, amidst squaring off with Mars-Neptune via your committed seventh house of one-on-one partnerships. Though you’re ready to expand your nest, (literally) or perhaps find the necessary room within your living space to cultivate more joy in your life, an energy vampire could be clouding your reality. Mercury Rx could also bring forth the opportunity to have a validating heart-to-heart with a family member. How can the people in your life bring you more freedom? Do you have faith in yourself?
It’s never too late to learn something new, Libra. With the Nodes of Fate activating your axis of knowledge — via your third house of communication, skills, and immediate environment + via your expansive ninth house of education, higher learning, and wisdom — themes revolving around your personal philosophy and unique perception will be highlighted throughout this eclipse season. The lunar eclipse in Sagittarius, adventurous and extraordinary, will ignite your chatty third house of inner circles and peers, while squaring off with Mars-Neptune via your orderly sixth house of health, and daily rituals. Though your desire to explore your immediate surroundings and use your voice has escalated, the lingering cloud of your due diligence continues to hover over your sunshine. Work might feel like an endless chore, and your exercise routine might be non-existent at the moment, but you can’t lose hope. Create the necessary room in your mind to break free from the unconscious chaos. Take the wheel. Is there a particular skill you could brush up on? How can you use your freedom of thought to succeed?
Is the feeling mutual, Scorpio? The Nodes of the moon have officially shifted into the axis of Gemini-Sagittarius — via your indulgent second house of finances, pleasure, and unique possessions + sultry eighth house of intimate unions, transformation, and debt — highlighting your security axis throughout this eclipse season. The lunar eclipse in Sagittarius will supercharge your money-hungry second house of money, money, money, amidst squaring off with Mars-Neptune in Pisces via your expressive fifth house of authenticity, passion, and acknowledgement. Having said that, this lunation will shed light on everything from your spending habits to your feelings of self-worth but with elusive Neptune in the mix igniting your enchanting desires, getting financially situated could turn out to be more challenging than expected. More importantly, however, make sure you don’t disregard your hard work and accomplishments. There’s always room for improvement but if you earned it, you earned it. Is fighting for your self-worth a risk you’re willing to take? How can you use your universal gifts and divine talents creatively?
Happy lunar eclipse, Sagittarius. The Nodes of Fate are not only activating your astrological axis – via your first house of self, personality, and physical appearance + seventh house of relationships, compromise, and other people — but also your interpersonal spheres, which means everything related to “I vs. we,” and vice versa, will come up for review this eclipse season. The lunar eclipse in your sign, however, will supercharge your first house of self, physical appearance, and personal aesthetic, while squaring off with Mars-Neptune via your domestic fourth house of home and family. There’s no denying that the spotlight’s on you these days and though you’re ready to make your big debut — especially with regard to your personal brand/vibe — family matters and deep-rooted emotions could very well rain on your parade. Let these emotions flow through you but don’t lose sight of the bigger picture. A powerful metamorphosis awaits. Are you willing to bring your loved ones with you on this personal journey? What parts of you are you ready to let go of?
It’s been a long road and it’s time to heal, Capricorn. With the Nodes of Fate activating your wellness axis — via your spiritual 12th house of dreams, karma, secrets, and solitude + your orderly sixth house of health, routine, due diligence, and work environment — everything from your body’s physical/emotional needs to your spiritual nourishment will be highlighted this eclipse season. The lunar eclipse in Sagittarius will supercharge your karmic 12th house of all things behind-the-scenes, amidst squaring off with Mars-Neptune via your third house of siblings, peers, communication, and immediate surroundings. In addition to having a lot on your mind, this energy could create friction between your desire to go inward versus your selfless compassion for others. You’re allowed to choose yourself first, so don’t leave yourself behind. Are you afraid of being emotionally authentic with your peers? Do you have compassion for yourself?
Life is about doing what you love most, Aquarius. The Nodes of Fate are now igniting your axis of authenticity — via your fifth house of joy, romance, children, and creativity + 11th house of friends, hopes, and sense of belonging in the world — highlighting themes revolving around your individual expression and soul tribe throughout this eclipse season. The lunar eclipse in Sagittarius, however, will ignite your socially conscious 11th house of teams, tribes, and sense of belonging, amidst squaring off with Mars-Neptune via your second house of values, self-worth, and pleasure. Whether you’ve decided to part ways with a particular crew, or perhaps realized you haven’t been owning up to your self-worth, it’s time for you to make an important decision. Though your contribution in the world is incredibly significant, it’s important that you don’t lose yourself in the process. Your future is bright so don’t get too comfortable just yet. How can you share your unique gifts and possessions with your extended network? Does your individual freedom require sacrifice?
It’s your turn to stand at the top of the mountain, Pisces. The Nodes of Fate are now activating the axis of your soul’s destiny — via your domestic fourth house of home, ancestral lineage, and emotional foundation + ambitious tenth house of career, authority figures, and legacy in the world — highlighting both your personal and public spheres. The lunar eclipse in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius, however, will supercharge your career-driven tenth house of prestige, reputation, and professional success, amidst squaring off with Mars-Neptune in your sign. There’s so much to celebrate with regard to your career and personal success but with your elusive planetary ruler in the mix, you could be feeling completely unprepared. There’s no reason to feel insecure or discouraged, Pisces. On the contrary, you’ve worked so hard to get to where you are, and though there’s no such thing as perfect, this is the moment you’ve been aspiring towards. Remember, there’s a time and place for everything. So don’t lose track of what’s happening right now, and enjoy the moment. What makes you feel confident in your skin? How can you indulge in the professional spotlight and stand up for what you believe in, simultaneously?
