Full Moon in Sagittarius, Lunar Eclipse on June 15, 2011

This Full Moon in Sagittarius will occur on Wednesday, June 15 at 4:14 pm Eastern (8:14 pm GMT) at 24 degrees. Full Moons represent the culmination of those things that were begun with the New Moon (in this case the June 1 New Moon in Gemini). This Full Moon represents the work we’ve done in the past weeks to acquire any newly found versatility (especially when it comes to communications and family relationships) and stability. The New Moon was a time for us to discover what was holding us back (especially in the realm of third house) and break free from it.

This is also the second of three eclipses in the span of a month (the first, a solar eclipse occurring with the June 1 New Moon in Gemini, and the third, a lunar eclipse occurring with the July 1 New Moon in Cancer). Where the June 1 solar eclipse called on us to re-examine our jobs and communication styles (and perhaps the relationship between the two), this total lunar eclipse is about understanding where your life is heading in the coming few years (which could potentially be affected by recent changes you made with the New Moon).

This lunar eclipse will also be the longest in over a decade, lasting almost two hours (the last lunar eclipse of this length occurred in 2000, and the next won’t occur until 2018). Most skywatchers in the northern hemisphere will be able to see the eclipse in totality around the time of moonrise (excepting northern Scotland and Scandinavia).

Because the Gemini Sun and the Sagittarius Moon are only one degree from a conjunction of the Moon’s nodes and because the eclipse will be deepest at the time of the Full Moon, this is a time of powerful energy; not only are we wrapping up what was started at the beginning of the month (an ending), we are also called to look forward to the energy of the Cancer New Moon and solar eclipse on July 1 (a beginning).

Fully re-tweeted and duly noted. Had to do a lot of work this morning as I am working this afternoon.

I positioned my work as backed by the sun, through the earth in the corona of the moon. As if it was a lens of focus. I took into consideration some of the things that Jason Miller brought up, at Strategic Sorcery, and took advantage of the dominant energies to manifest some things that are normally harder to create because of the sun’s power.

Anyway. Thank you for the insight.

I can’t wait to see the Eclipse! I’ve always wondered what one was like!
