The Full Moon and total lunar eclipse happening at 4:14PM EDT in the sign of Sagittarius illuminates the New Moon agenda set on June 1st. How have new ways of thinking pushed you out of your comfort zone over the past two weeks? What do you need to release in order to move to the next level?
The Full Moon happens at 25 degrees of Gemini/Sagittarius. Wherever this degree falls in your horoscope is where you may be challenged to let go, not necessarily right this minute, but certainly over the next 3 months and 20-odd days (this time span corresponds to the duration of the eclipse).
For a meditation on the power of an eclipse — and especially this eclipse in Gemini/Sagittarius — you could do worse than rent the film CONTACT http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118884/ starring Jodie Foster. This film is worth seeing just for the opening titles. Camera pulls back from planet Earth, leaving the solar system, into the vastness of space. As we travel, we hear sound — radio waves transmitted decades ago, still beaming their way through space. The farther away from Earth we travel, the older the radio transmissions get. We are traveling back in time! And then…silence.
What happens in the silence? Or, as in the case of a lunar eclipse, the sudden total darkness. How does it make you feel? Back in 1997, when CONTACT was first released, I saw it in a crowded theater. For some people, the silence was unnerving. Out of their discomfort, they started talking. They just couldn’t be still and BE. I challenge you to not be so unnerved.
In CONTACT, Jodie Foster gets to travel into space, allegedly on a machine devised by an alien intelligence. What does she find at her destination? Apparently her heart’s desire, sprung from her own thoughts and mindset. Imagine your thoughts blasted into outer space or some other “big picture” arena, and you get a sense of the extraordinary potential of this Gemini/Sagittarius eclipse. Out of your thoughts, your life takes form. Don’t believe me? Hold a question — or just an image — in your mind. Then let it go. See how long it takes for you to notice a response to your question — or something related to the image you had — manifesting in your life.
Another reason to rent the film: it was released in 1997, fourteen years ago, making it the halfway point of America’s Saturn cycle (Saturn cycles are 28-30 years long). How has our collective consciousness evolved since then?
The Sabian Symbol for 25 degrees of Sagittarius is “A chubby boy on a hobbyhorse.” Just imagine the adventures that child is having in his mind while “riding” that horse. And when he grows up, presumably having trimmed the fat, imagine him making those adventures real. Food for thought!
