May 2021 Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius

Get Off Your Pulpit and Be Curious

The May 2021 Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is built on a Full Moon, meaning it will stir up strong emotions. This one involves the Nodes in Gemini and Sagittarius, demanding that we release strongly held opinions we are attached to. We’ve named this one “Get Off Your Pulpit and Be Curious” for the pressure it delivers to reexamine your beliefs and apply logic and rationality. This may play out in the form of an argument with a partner. If your opinions are being challenged, the choice is yours: impose your beliefs on other people (and suffer the confrontation with your own shadow) or allow new data to cause an expansion of your worldview (and experience grace). If you have anything in your chart between 0º and 10º of any Mutable sign at all, you will feel this Eclipse.

Does It Affect You Personally?

If your birthday is on any of the following dates (in any year at all), you’re most likely to experience this eclipse:
May 20 to 31
August 22 to September 2
November 21 to December 2
February 18 to March 1

And if there’s any planet in your chart in between 0º and 10º of Mutable signs ( Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, Pisces) that planet will be affected.

Remember, not every eclipse touches everyone, but when it does, it’s usually noticeable.  A lunar eclipse is likely to bring up strong emotions and to be experienced as a subjective event (unlike a solar eclipse, which is likely to be marked by an external, real-world event). You may notice events happening anytime within the week surrounding the eclipse (up to a few days before or after).
