We are entering eclipse season with the full moon rising in sidereal Scorpio in Jyestha on June 5. This will be a penumbral lunar eclipse, where a small shadow falls upon the moon. It will be visible across Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia, affecting inhabitants there the most.
Scorpio is the feminine side of Mars, where we may feel seductive, motivated to conquer fears, or be deeply involved in activities that are meaningful. Jyestha, ruled by Mercury, may direct us towards things related to learning or communications, like radio, television/film.
The lunar cycle started in Taurus in Krittika, showing us where we need to cut away excess, be more clear, or purify our desires. Our efforts towards ‘living lighter’ start bearing fruit a few days before and after the Scorpio full moon.
Transformative Eclipse Energy
An eclipse illuminates life’s mysteries on a deeper level. Since Scorpio is also related to hidden things and secrets, surprises may come to the surface. The solar plexus is governed by Mars — the warrior. The moon’s energy will guide the collective to be aware of things related to gut instincts, confidence, and discernment. On the other end, fears, violence, and passive-aggressive behavior may appear.
Internally, this full moon energy could manifest as the desire to be more involved in media, consume it for learning, or using it to transform our lives. In the external world, this eclipse could result in news reports of governments using military force to manage large populations, or a reliable COVID-19 vaccine may be discovered.
Overall, because this moon is in Scorpio, it will point out what needs to be changed or what will change. We will see this more after the full moon energy dies down.
