Righteous Battles and Unity Consciousness – Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse June 5 2020
In the sign of Sagittarius, a Full Moon (or even more potently a Lunar Eclipse) reveals something to us about what we believe, how we operate, and how those things are subject to change.
Mars is moving toward an exact conjunction with Neptune, and both planets are in a t-square with the Sun/Venus in Gemini and the Moon in Sagittarius during the Lunar Eclipse. A t-square is a stressful planetary alignment. It brings frustration and conflict to a head and invites us to heal and transform by seeing things from new perspectives.
Mars is the planet of the warrior. It brings the energy of risk-taking and courageous action. In Pisces AND close to Neptune, this action is coming from a bigger picture of truth. Combine that with the Moon in Sagittarius and you have a righteous battle taking place.
Recently in the U.S. we have seen the mobilization of Black Lives Matter protests, and also the emboldening of authoritarianism and white supremacist belief systems.
I am hopeful that we will see some movement in the direction of healing centuries of oppression that the U.S. and many parts of the world have been built upon. This is about all of us.
Sagittarius is about the story we tell–the reality we operate within. Mars conjunct Neptune brings us an opportunity to imagine and begin creating a new reality, one that recognizes our interconnectedness.
To heal and transform centuries of abuse and mistrust, we have to begin to see ourselves as more alike than we are different. We must get beyond denial, guilt, and token gestures to create a new human story, one that unifies and helps us identify with one another.
If it feels right to you,* I’d like to invite you to imagine what this would look like. How would you think, act, and speak differently if you knew for a fact that all human beings were working toward the same common goal of compassion, mutual respect, and peace? If the overarching cultural paradigm was one of kindness, safety and respect, and legal structures that dole out justice fairly to all people, how would you live? What would you do? Who would you be? How would you correct the wrongs of the past? What would you do with your freedom?
This powerful Lunar Eclipse brings this opportunity to imagine, and begin to create new realities. Pay attention to your thoughts and beliefs. Notice if you are wishing things would go back to the way they were or expecting a fight that goes nowhere because, while they are normal, these thoughts tend to keep us stuck in old paradigms.
If you can open your mind to truly imagine change in the bigger picture and hold a vision of what that looks like, you are supporting those new possibilities to begin to take form.
