Sagittarius Full Moon Eclipse- FACE THE BEAST

You know that scene in Star Wars (I think in The Empire Strikes Back?) when Luke is being trained by Yoda and as part of his training he has to go into a cave and face his worst fear. SPOILER ALERT his worst fear is facing Darth Vader, but not only that, it is that he will become Darth Vader. (Sorry if you haven’t seen it and have no idea what I’m talking about. I live with a huge star wars nerd so it infiltrates my consciousness rather a lot). I think this Sagittarius Full Moon eclipse (May 26th, 12:13 BST) is going to feel rather like that.

As in art, the monsters which life throws at us are often far more scary in our heads. Once we realise what it is which scares us it loses a lot of its power over us. At this full moon eclipse we can access and diminish – maybe even vanquish – our personal demons.

“Each of us must confront our own fears, must come face to face with them. How we handle our fears will determine where we go with the rest of our lives. To experience adventure or to be limited by the fear of it.”

NB. You can use the beast card as a signifier. Either choose it yourself from the deck or draw it at random.

Ritual/ Spellwork/ EveryDayMagic Suggestions

*Threshold rituals, any way which you can symbolically cross a threshold and leave something behind, perhaps face something in the middle (if you’re feeling brave) and then pass through to the other side stronger than before.
*Eclipses aren’t usually great for magic, so I’d steer clear of spellwork at the moment. Jupiter will be in pisces for a while yet so plenty of time for wealth magic when the skies are more favourable.
*A charity donation/ offering would be a nice way to show reciprocation to the universal forces at this moment

Full Moon Eclipse in Cancer -THRESHOLD

This full moon eclipse in Cancer (Jan 9th, 19:10 GMT) is one of the last activations of the Cancer/ Capricorn axis eclipses we have seen over the eighteen months, and which will continue until July this year. (It is also part of a much bigger, 200 year, shift in the elemental energies from Earth to Air).

The full Cancer moon is blocked by the sun. Creating a threshold. And with so much of the sky portending big change, all of us, woke or sleepwalking, will be affected. Die or be killed. It is chrysalis time.

Divination/ Journaling Prompts

*Which area(s) of my life are changing now?
*How can I ease the pain of transition?
*What threshold am I stepping through?

Ritual/ EveryDayMagic/ Spellwork Suggestions

*perhaps not an ideal time for a celebratory ritual, but certainly a good time for a circle with kindred spirits. Maybe a gentle release meditation. Sharing of food. Sharing of fears. Sharing of hope.
