The super full moon and total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius yesterday morning was a Blood moon, jump starting eclipse season with an opportunity for needed transformation and shift in energy. We are bound to learn a lot with this moon, as Sagittarius energy has us ready to investigate and expand our knowledge. Over the coming weeks, what needs to be released will be made known in time to set clear intentions for the next solar eclipse on June 11. This eclipse season closes out a cycle that began last Spring eclipse season of May 2020, and with Mercury (goes retrograde May 29), Saturn, and Pluto retrograde it’s a reeeeeally good time to review. Think back to the cycle that started last year around this time.
What have we learned in the past year—what has come to light that was lurking beneath the surface? What ways are we ready to transform, and what are we willing to leave behind?
With Mercury in a square with Neptune we could feel some frustration with how we communicate, especially when it comes to communicating our deeper emotions, dreams, and our spiritual side. While we might have some difficulty communicating right now, this is a lovely time for writing about our feelings, even exploring some poetry and creativity—especially if you’ve been hesitant to. It doesn’t have to be perfect; this is a great time to experiment and explore your creative side.
With Venus squaring Neptune we are given a chance to see where we have unrealistic expectations in relationships. Where have we been unrealistic in our dreams (what is just impossible fantasy, and what could you make a reality?)? With this aspect happening alongside the full moon and lunar eclipse, we can let go of fantasies we realize we wouldn’t even want in reality. We can begin to build on dreams that are in alignment with our true soul path.
Saturn forms a square with Uranus, asking us where we need to change—perhaps we need to break from tradition in some way, perhaps there is a chance we have been fearing that will actually be liberating when we let it happen. This is an aspect that can support great reform and progress on a global and political scale, and in our personal lives it can give us the push towards change that we’ve been needing.
Saturn also forms a supportive sextile with Chiron, the wounded healer. This gives us an opening to heal wounds we’ve been carrying since childhood—especially trauma surrounding people in a position of authority (parents, teachers, older family members, etc.). How can you create your own relationship with authority (both being in a position of authority and coping with others’ authority), one that allows you independence and fits your way of being? This is a powerful time to release pain you’ve been holding for years, and a good time to reach out to a therapist or trusted support as you navigate sometimes choppy waters.
The message I pulled for the collective indicates that we are all closing a big chapter with this eclipse season. We are in the energy of Temperance—a time to be patient, and keep tweaking the formula until we find the combination that is just right. This process does require us to have patience as we adjust the ingredients to get the perfect mix, but Temperance lets us know that it IS possible to combine all of the things we want and make them work well together. Our oracle guidance is Cat energy—sometimes it’s not only okay, but necessary to care for ourselves first. Know that when you look after yourself you are setting yourself up for success, and to be in a better position to help others. When you tend to your own needs, you’ll always land on your feet. The World tells me we are all heading into a brand new chapter, and closing the door on an old one.

Gemini & Gemini Rising (May 21-Jun 20): This full moon illuminated your 7th house of marriage, partnerships, relationships, and issues relating to other people. There could be some people you realize you need to leave behind as you’ve outgrown the relationships, or perhaps a partnership comes to an end. You are learning about how you relate with others during this eclipse cycle, and perhaps growing and evolving in this area of life. Things are changing for the better, especially when it comes to career, financial, home, and health issues. You might have to juggle things a bit and put a few things down to accommodate the changes. With Mercury retrograde in Gemini (highlighting your 1st house of self and outer personality), this is a good time to review how you communicate—take time with your text messages, e-mails, and instant messages. Proofread your writing, and really choose your words carefully and with intention. You are heading into the energy of the 3 of Wands—you’ll feel inspired in the weeks ahead, and will be able to start making plans towards your dreams and goals.
Cancer & Cancer Rising (Jun 21-Jul 22): This full moon lit up your 6th house of daily work and routines, health and sickness, and day-to-day life. What daily routines are feeling stale, or are just nooo longer working well? What daily activities can you introduce to your routine to liven things up or make your days go smoother? What little things could brighten up your everyday grind? What are some habits you would do well to leave behind? You are in the energy of the Page of Cups—a lovely time of emotional growth and learning, a time when you can get in touch with and nurture your inner child. In the weeks ahead you will need to figure out what burdens are not yours to carry, and set them down. If your load is too heavy, you won’t be able to do all that you set out to accomplish. Something has to give, so think about what you can put down or let go of to make the busy months ahead easier and more enjoyable. Your Oracle message is “Elevator,” you are leveling up during this cycle, and the guidance is to rise above turmoil (especially pettiness, gossip, and low vibrational nonsense), rise above the challenges. You’ve got this, crabbies!
Leo & Leo Rising (Jul 23-Aug 22): This super full moon eclipse moved through your 5th house of creativity, self-expression, love and romance, and how your energy is released into the world. As Mercury retrograde transits your 11th house of goals, friendships, and groups, it’s a good time to review your long and short term goals. How do you feel about the groups and associations you belong to? Are there friendships that need to be released to make room for healthier ones? As the full moon lights up your house of self-expression, think about ways in which you hold back or stifle your creativity. How can you release what’s limiting you? You are currently in the energy of 4 of Pentacles, so while you’ve done a good job to build solid foundations, there’s some way in which you are holding back for fear of losing all the balance you’ve worked towards. The thing is, you have done good work to get you where you are, and it’s okay now to make some bolder moves and let yourself be seen more. You are heading into the energy of the Strength card, which is all about stepping into your confidence, knowing that you have the courage and strength to get you through anything. Get ready to let yourself be seen and your creativity shine! The Key comes into your reading with the message that you are about to have an epiphany of some sort—the solution to a problem could present itself, or a missing piece of a puzzle falls into place.
Virgo & Virgo Rising (Aug 23-Sept 22): This full moon and eclipse lit up your 4th house of home, family, and roots. With a full moon and eclipse traveling through this house, there is often opportunity to resolve and release a family conflict or situation with your home. Sagittarius energy could have you curious to explore your roots and ancestry, and this can be a great moon for getting rid of clutter or making your home feel good. This Mercury retrograde in Gemini transits your 10th house of public life, career, and authority. The month ahead will be a good time to review your career goals/assess how you’re feeling about your career currently. Take some time to reflect on how you interact with the public, and what changes you’d like to see in this area of life. You are currently in the energy of Page of Wands reversed, so the beginning of Mercury retrograde could be a bit frustrating with plans and travel delayed. Information isn’t flowing freely with this reversed page, so try to sink into some patience as news trickles in slowly. Avoid getting involved in gossip or pettiness in the coming weeks, even if it’s juicy and tempting. You are heading into the energy of the 2 of Wands, so there could be a crossroads ahead, or some choices to make. The road opens up before you in the coming weeks, and you can begin to visualize and look ahead.
Libra & Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22): This super full moon traveled through your 3rd house of communication, thought processes, writing, siblings, and short trips. Sagittarius energy could have you exploring new ways of thinking, even new ways of communicating. You are taking a deep look at how you communicate your thoughts to others, how you receive others’ thoughts and conversation, how you feel hard and how you listen. The upcoming Mercury retrograde in Gemini travels through your 9th house of spirituality, philosophy, and higher learning. In the month ahead take some time to reflect—does your philosophy on life and your belief system still feel in alignment with who you’ve grown into? What has expanded or evolved? You are currently in the energy of the 8 of Wands—things are changing for the better, and you are ready to do the work that needs to be done. Success is within reach, and you can feel things changing for the better, but there can be a lot up in the air at once right now. Make sure to carve out quiet, grounding time to keep yourself balanced through the changes. You are heading into the energy of the High Priestess—trust your intuition in the weeks ahead. The answers you seek are within, and your higher self already knows. Your oracle message is “Alien,” which brings the message that it’s time to accept yourself for the unique, one-of-a-kind being that you are. You might feel alone sometimes because you feel different, but remember that you have something to offer this world that nobody else can.
Scorpio & Scorpio Rising (Oct 23-Nov 21): This full moon and eclipse illuminated your 2nd house of physical resources, finances, value system, and security. Take a look at what makes you feel secure, what you place value on. Are there parts of your value system that no longer feel true to you? While this is a good time to get finances in order and get rid of any lingering debt possible, this moon is more about expanding your knowledge in this area of life, learning more about what true security means to you, and what you truly value. This upcoming Mercury retrograde travels through your 8th house of death and rebirth, transformation, sexuality, and how you evolve from your relationships with others. This review period brings opportunity for some major growth, especially when it comes to communication in your closest relationships. You are currently in the energy of the King of Cups—you are learning to take control of your emotions, balance taking care of yourself and others. In some big way this moon helps boost your emotional growth and healing. You are heading into the energy of the 3 of Pentacles—your plans are beginning to take shape, and you’re ready to put the work necessary in to keep building. If you’ve been trying something new (perhaps a new treatment or therapy) for your health, it’s likely you’ll start seeing some good results soon. Your oracle message is “Baby,” bringing the message that it could be helpful to nurture your inner child and tap into that childlike innocence we all once had. See things from a fresh perspective, and try to have some fun in the midst of all the work and growth!
Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising (Nov 22-Dec 21): This full moon and lunar eclipse lit up your 1st house of the acting self, outer personality, and beginnings. Often when you have a full moon and eclipse in this house there is a desire to make some changes in the way we present ourselves, how we interact with others, or even our appearance. Are there fears or shame holding you back from more fully engaging with others, or letting your true personality shine? You have a lot of astrological support in releasing anything holding you back now. The upcoming Mercury retrograde transits your 7th house, bringing review to your partnerships, marriage if you’re part of one, and how you operate with others. You are currently in the energy of the 8 of Pentacles—this is the energy of learning something new, working your way from the bottom up. You’re on your way to success with this card in the area of home, health, and work, just keep at it. You are heading into the energy of the 4 of Cups, which makes sense as we head into Mercury retrograde (on top of Pluto and Saturn retrograde)—there is a sense of dissatisfaction or of being in a rut, but the gift is that this is a time of coming back into emotional balance. When you feel out of sorts, shift your focus to the good things going on, even if they seem small. Your oracle message is “flower,” urging you to keep putting in the work and planting those seeds. They will pay off with beautiful blooms in time.
Capricorn & Capricorn Rising (Dec 22-Jan 19): This full moon and lunar eclipse lit up your 12th house of karma, self-undoing, endings, and that which lies beyond the physical plane. Things that have been hidden can come to light, and Sagittarius energy can have you eager to investigate and learn more. This upcoming Mercury retrograde in Gemini highlights your 6th house of daily work and routines, sickness and health, and daily life. This is a good time to review what routines and habits are no longer working, and find ways to make your day-to-day life more pleasant and in alignment with the path you want to be on. You are currently in the energy of the 10 of Swords, and while this is a difficult place to be, it marks the end of a period of disaster, defeat, or being wronged. A cycle has completed, and you can rest assured that these difficulties have an end in sight. You are heading into the energy of 6 of Pentacles, so things are coming back into balance in the coming weeks. If you’ve been struggling with energy or resources, this indicates these struggles coming to a close, and being able to redistribute and share the wealth. Your oracle message is “Job,” and comes with the message that it’s time to do what you love and are passionate about. Sometimes we have to do what we have to do to survive, but it’s important to find a way to enjoy the work or move on to something that feels more fulfilling if/when we are able to. Sometimes we just need a shift in perspective, sometimes we need to change jobs entirely. Remember that if you live with chronic illness work is subjective—the work you do to manage symptoms and stay afloat counts as a job and valid work.
Aquarius & Aquarius Rising (Jan 20-Feb 18): This full moon and eclipse activated your 11th house of groups, friendships, and goals. Sagittarius energy can have you feeling inspired and ready to set new objectives. How are you feeling in the groups you belong to, in your friendships? Sometimes with a full moon and eclipse in this house, we realize there are friendships or associations that no longer fit with where we are headed. Are you still excited about your goals, or could they use some updating? This upcoming Mercury retrograde in Gemini moves through your 5th house of creativity, self-expression, romance and affection, and fun. This will be a period of reviewing the ways in which you let your creativity out into the world, how you receive affection and love, and the ways that you let yourself let loose and have fun. You are currently in the energy of the 7 of Wands. You’ve done a good job of protecting yourself and building solid defenses. Now it’s time to take control of things and take some action. You are heading into the new beginning energy of the Fool—time to take a leap of faith and venture into the unknown in the coming weeks. Your oracle message is “Transition,” which is an apt message as we jump into transformative eclipse season. This card urges you to let go of what needs to be released, and accept the changes to come. While periods of transition are difficult in some ways, the shift in energy and the growth it brings make any uncomfortable moments worth it.
Pisces & Pisces Rising (Feb 19-Mar 20): This full moon and lunar eclipse illuminated your 10th house of public life, how you cope with authority, and career issues. You could be sensing a shift in your career goals or how you want to interact with the public. This Mercury retrograde in Gemini moves through your 4th house of home, family, and roots. Bringing a time of review, Mercury in Gemini can have you learning about how you communicate with family members. You might also take some time to learn more about your roots, as information from the past can be useful now. You are currently in the energy of the Wheel of Fortune, so things are shifting for the better—especially if you’ve been going through a difficult time, things are going to get easier as the wheel turns. You are heading into the energy of the Emperor, ready to take charge of your life and take more action. Especially with that 10th house lit up with the full moon and lunar eclipse, it’s possible that you will find yourself in a position of more authority. Your oracle message is “Naked,” which comes with the message that it will benefit you to have the courage to be vulnerable in the coming weeks. Don’t be afraid to let your true self be seen, to stand strong in your truth, to let go of any shame you feel about yourself. “Dare to bare all.”
Aries & Aries Rising (Mar 21-Apr 19): This full moon and lunar eclipse lit up your 9th house of philosophy, spirituality, and higher learning. What old belief systems have you outgrown? Are there ways of thinking you are ready to leave behind? As the moon wanes you could find yourself curious to learn about new cultures and philosophies, new spiritualities, or entirely new subjects. This upcoming Mercury retrograde in Gemini travels through your 3rd house of communication, thinking, writing, short trips, and siblings. Time to slow down in your communications, be careful and thoughtful with your words. Proofread your texts and emails. This is a period to slow down and review your communication and thought patterns. It’s way to fire off thoughts impulsively, but is often more fruitful to take time and communicate with clear intentions. You are currently in the energy of the Queen of Wands—in many ways you are in your element now, feeling creative, inspired, and ready to take action and bring things to life. In the coming weeks you encounter the 8 of Cups reversed energy—there could be a relationship or situation that you need to walk away from, one you know is not good for you, but something is holding you back from leaving this situation behind. This can also be a message not to rush into something or abandon something just because you feel restless in this retrograde energy. Take an honest look at your situation—what are your higher goals, and where does your highest path lead? If there is something holding you back from that, you might need to walk away from it. Your oracle message is “Award,” so regardless of what needs to be left behind, allow yourself to feel proud of how far you’ve already come. If you’ve been working hard, it’s beginning to pay off, and you should feel good about everything you’ve accomplished.
Taurus & Taurus Rising (Apr 20-May 20): This full moon and lunar eclipse illuminated your 8th house of death and rebirth, sexuality, transformation, and how we learn from our relationships. This moon offers a big opportunity to release things that are preventing new growth, and to transform. Sometimes this transformation is deep and internal, sometimes it’s a physical transformation (some kind of renovation, a complete change in job, or something more cerebral like a transformation in your way of thinking about a certain subject). The upcoming Mercury retrograde in Gemini travels through your 2nd house of physical resources, finances, security, and value system. Sitting exactly opposite the 8th house, you enter a period of review of what makes you feel secure. What do you truly value, and what just gives you a false sense of security? This retrograde period helps you gain perspective on your financial situation, what brings you true security, and your sense of what’s truly valuable. You are currently in the energy of the Chariot—things are beginning to move forward for you, and this card lets you know that you have what it takes for the journey ahead. There is still a long way to go, and challenges to face, but things are finally taking off. You are heading towards the energy of the King of Pentacles—really leveling up in the realm of daily work, home life, health, and career. This king has a great handle on the earth realm, is willing and able to help family and friends, and knows how to distribute resources. Through all of this review and transition you advance either in work, in your home life, or with health matters. Your oracle message is “Fire,” which brings the message that it’s time to own your power and take action towards your goals and dreams. You have the power to make the changes you want, and you’re ready to wield that power to move yourself forward.
