Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius 2013

This super-charged full moon in Sagittarius on 25th May highlights issues related  to archetypes such as the Teacher, the Philosopher and the Judge. We are urged to take a look at the bigger picture in life and to share our experiences with those in need.

On the opposite side, we have the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Jupiter in Gemini (with the last 3 in conjunction with one another) , giving us mental dexterity in abundance.  However, this eclipse is in a tight T-Square with Neptune.  This mutable T-Square provides us with learning opportunities to tune into the creative and healing energy of Neptune rather than succumbing to mental confusion and scampering away from the situation.  

The dispositors of the Sun (Mercury) and Moon (Jupiter) are both in Gemini, further reinforcing the need to communicate with others and  to check all the basic facts to avoid any misunderstandings. 

This lunar eclipse is at 4 degrees 8 minutes Sagittarius with an orb of 3 degrees.  Look in your natal chart for planets, angles and points between 1 degree 8 minutes to 7 degrees 8 minutes in mutable signs (Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo and Pisces).  

Where does this lunar eclipse fall in your chart?

  1. Thank you for this. This eclipse falls on my birthday. I am a also triple Gemini (sun, moon and rising). What can I expect? I am a little anxious of what's to come!

    1. Full moons are often times when hidden information comes to light. Are your Sun and Moon in the 12th house or the 1st?

    2. Both in the 12th house, the house of secrets..

    3. Then perhaps you may discover a few secrets or two! My personal experience with 12th house transit is normally related to family secrets:-P The 12th house is also associated with hidden talents. This could be the time when you discover some hidden skills you never knew existed or have forgotten about, perhaps writing, storytelling (Gemini). 12th house is also a time for relaxation or going on a retreat. With Gemini involved, perhaps relax by socialising with friends, chatting to them on the phone or.....gossiping! (negative expression of Gemini:-P)

    4. Maybe! Its weird having so much Gemini energy in the 12th house. I want to socialise but also hide away! Having this upcoming eclipse fall on my birthday feels like a big event. Are there any general observations about birthday eclipses?

    5. Well, you can have a private party! That way you get your privacy but also a way to use the Geminian energy:-P

      Concerning the eclipse on your birthday, yes, it is particularly potent because that eclipse will be part of the 'snapshot' of your solar return chart this year. You will have the energy of this lunar eclipse for the next 12 months....

  2. First house where my natal Venus resides but at 8 degrees. However, I guess this eclipse is all about me. I hope so, I(Libra) have forgotten about myself for far too long.

  3. eclipse in 4th house sag. I have natal venus in my 10th house gem @ 5 degrees and my virgo asc @ 3 degrees. So does that mean somthing related to home and roots 94th), identity (1st) and career (10th)?

    1. Yes, those areas are highlighted under this eclipse.

      In addition, with the natal Venus square your ASC, perhaps as a child, you felt a sense of inadequacy in terms of your external appearance? With the square involving both Mercury rulers (Gemini and Virgo) perhaps you tried to overcome this by focusing on developing your intellect, or that it could be your intellect you felt insecure about. This lunar eclipse will form a T-square with this natal square so whatever you have experienced before (which you have not yet resolved) is likely to be flagged up under this eclipse. 4th house could indicate a family member (parents) triggering this process, or it could be something related to your home land (4th), e.g. some event happening in your country leads you to think about your past. The 4th house is also your emotional baggage from childhood so another possibility is having your past feelings stirred up. Let's see how the Universe unfolds itself this weekend...
