The unknown we experience during big transitions is a scary place, but we cannot access our power to create new versions of ourselves or our lives without entering the void, the chaos, and being able to sit with the uncertainty, the unfamiliar, and the unknown.
Sagittarius is a fire sign, but it’s mutable in quality, which means it is highly changeable. We can experience the mutable quality as instability and uncertainty, or harness it as adaptability and versatility. Sagittarius is about the “big truth,” and our personal truth. It is about higher and broader perspective, beliefs, philosophy, faith, and optimism.
Sagittarius is the centaur bounding through the forest. It is the Fool taking the leap of faith holding the belief that it will all work out in the end, venturing boldly into the unknown, unaware that the journey ahead will be one of great transformation - a journey from which she will never return - at least not to the same place in life as the same person she was when she began.
With the coming full moon eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26th, we have a chance to get a view of our bigger picture - of where we are coming from and where we are headed. This full moon is a jumping off point into the two week long eclipse portal that will close with the new moon eclipse in Gemini on June 10th. Eclipses are times of great change, of some cycles coming to completion and others beginning.
Sagittarius is the sign of our personal truths and beliefs. With the May 26th full moon eclipse, our deepest values, truest desires, highest hopes, and most cherished dreams will be illuminated for us, if we are paying attention. If we are, we can anchor into our faith, optimism, and belief in our desired destination and use it as our foundation and “calm in the eye of the storm” as we move through the upcoming eclipse portal to the June 10th new moon eclipse in Gemini - our new beginning and gateway to “the new.”
From Caterpillar to Butterfly - From the Fool to the World....
One of the most important things we can do is to take action. Just begin. Just take a step, any step, forward. We must not allow ourselves to become paralyzed or frozen trying to make the perfect choice or action. Remember, it is easier to adjust our direction when we are moving. Just take a step. We can make corrections as we go, as long as we are going. If we want things to be different, we have to start doing things differently. We start where we are, right here, right now. This is the only way we will ever make a change in our lives. We must, at some point, begin doing things differently.
Remember the Fool taking the leap of faith. What faith, what belief, what truth will this Sagittarian full moon eclipse be revealing to you? Keep in mind also that the May 26th full moon eclipse in Sagittarius is a south node eclipse - that means it is showing us the past and what we are moving away from, but also that which we already know and have already mastered. At this full moon eclipse, our truth will be illuminated, and we will want to hold that truth close. We will want to trust in our own truth and let it be our guide as we set out into the unknown, through the eclipse portal, like the caterpillar who follows the urge to build its cocoon, surrenders to the process of transformation, and then as an emerging butterfly, again follows the instinct to fight its way out of the cocoon it was driven to build in the past but now must break free of to survive.
We want to follow our truth - and be sure it is our truth and not our fear - and just simply do what we feel urged to do next. When we trust and take action based upon our core truth, we can befriend the unknown, knowing we will be guided to the next step when it is time, and navigate any challenges with grace as we surrender (not submit) to the process of transformation. We trust we will know when it is time to cocoon and when it is time to break free.
Eclipses are known for bringing big change to our lives. Don't expect it to be comfortable if your comfort is found only in the familiar.
Whatever faith, belief and/or truth the May 26th full moon in Sagittarius illuminates for us, we must keep it close and trust in our own truth and let it be our guide now. Holding onto that truth and that faith and belief and trust within, we can befriend the unknown and harness the transformative power of the eclipses, surrendering with grace to releasing what no longer serves and the death of our old consciousness - life and self as we have previously known them - so we can emerge born again with wings.
At this eclipse season, we are reminded that in this life, we need both the light and the dark, both summer and winter, both feminine and masculine, both rest and action.
Like the caterpillar who follows its instinct to build the cocoon and surrender to transformation when it is urged to and then likewise fights to break free of that same cocoon when that time comes, there is a season for all things in life and each one, each piece, each stage of birth and death and action and rest and creation and destruction is equally necessary and valuable. But we must take that leap of faith like the Fool, placing our trust in our own truth, finding serenity in surrender as we befriend the unknown, finding our comfort in knowing that our inner voice, like the instinct of the caterpillar, will tell us when the time is right for each step along our journey of transformation.
Only then do we find that security of coming home to that home within ourselves. Only then do we experience the stability and safety found in honoring our truth and surrendering to the journey. Because only then are we able to come into the authority that is our birthright as co-creators of our experience of life with the Universe and claim the thrones of our hearts, and rule with wise sovereignty over our realms.
