This is an intense high energy exciting time, with potential for BIG SHIFTS. At Full Moon things come to a head; it’s a culmination of energy patterns that have been at play for a while in our life and our psyche. It’s a time of endings. There may be things passing out of our lives whether they are self initiated or take us by surprise. At the same time some things are coming to fruition:  ideas, new business ventures, project or relationships for example. They may evolve to the next stage, or new opportunities may arrive suddenly.

Similar to Full Moons, Lunar Eclipses represent a time of completion or culmination in the lunar cycle. It’s a time of endings, they effect our emotions, forcing us to deal with subconscious forces within us. This Full Moon is next to Uranus, which makes it impulsive, reckless and unstable with a strong urge for freedom and an unwillingness to compromise. There is a strong urge to take action, so be sure of your motives and be aware of what is driving you. On the positive side, with moon/uranus influence, it can be easier to shift stuck emotional and physical patterns, like diet and smoking.

This lunation is part of a cycle of eclipses and relates to April 2014 Eclipse (see April 15th post).

This is the Chart for the Eclipse.

This eclipse is part of a complex formation called a “kite”in astrology- it can be seen in the chart above in blue lines. It is made up of a grand trine (triangle), this one is in fire signs which is a dynamic energy that represents courage, inspiration, confidence, independent spirit and a visionary perspective.  The sun and moon that make up the eclipse are the backbone to the kite, adding stress to the equation and motivating us to act.

With this dynamic formation our world is being rocked again (see 10th April 2014 post). This combination of energy is forceful. The red lines representing the opposition from sun/venus in libra to moon/uranus in aries challenge our sense of self, our values and how we react/ respond in relationships. Make no mistake, there will be strong impulses coming up, combined with a need to free ourselves of anything that confines us. We may even go to extremes in our reactions. It is important not to act out of anger, as we may regret it later. Many of the themes that were around in april will make themselves felt now. What lessons did we learn about relating back then? Did we get any new insights on how we antagonise others and create conflict? This is another opportunity to get clarity in this area or to deepen what we already know. This learning process is through our interaction with others.


Be prepared to be honest about what is being revealed by this eclipse! Let’s use this combination of energies to breakthrough any areas of our life that have been stuck or stagnant, this is another incredible opportunity to free ourselves from limiting beliefs and behaviours.

At this Time the universe DARES us to challenge ourselves to evolve beyond what we think is possible, to create a more authentic life, to contribute to our communities (and the world at large). And to also make an effort to be more actively conscious about how we relate to others, whether they are our loved ones or our so called enemies on the other side of the world.
