Blood Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius. May 26th 2021

This week we will have the blood, full moon lunar eclipse in Sagittarius that will occur on 26th May at 9.12 pm in Australia and be followed up with Mercury turning retrograde on the 29th.

A full moon, represents the energy of release, of letting go, things coming to an end to make way for something new.

It is also a blood moon, meaning the moon is literally physically closer to the earth, so the impact of its energies will be felt more, AND it is also a lunar eclipse. Lunar Eclipses are when the earth is literally sandwiched between the sun and the moon, and in astrological terms, eclipses are important because they elevate and amplify the energy of the full moon; things are sped up, accelerated.

The moon is in is Sagittarius, in opposition to the sun in Gemini. What will this mean? For a start, this full moon will be most poignant for anyone with the Sun, Moon or ascendant in Sagittarius and Gemini and will also be felt by the other mutable signs of Virgo and Pisces. It occurs at 5 degrees Sagittarius, so those of you who know your chart, check to see where that falls as that will be the area that gets activated at this time.

At its most basic level, this full moon asks us to look at what needs to be changed or adjusted in a Sagittarian way.

Sagittarian energy at its essence is about expanding the consciousness of understanding and belief via our philosophies and spirituality, education and or travel. These are connected in that each one in its own way broadens the mind to take in new ideas, new experiences and ultimately assists us in understanding the world and our place in it.

Sagittarius is a truth seeker and astrologically a strong influence in how we structure our belief systems, philosophies, ideas. In this regard, the full moon energy alone asks us to look at our belief systems, our relationship with our spirituality, our perspectives, and at a base level, what we believe to be true.

This is a period of letting go of what no longer serves you or what is no longer accurate in your belief, philosophical and truth systems. Is there something you have believed about yourself that perhaps is no longer true, and you hold onto outdated beliefs that you have constructed or have subconsciously constructed from family or societal expectations of you? Time to question if these beliefs, your inner dialogues are honest and whether they are healthily serving you and whether you need them any longer. If you don't, this is the time to let them go.

This eclipse is about looking at the 'shoulds' we all surround ourselves with. It's about looking at the belief or spiritual structures we are told to believe by our family; for examples, it's about examining our judgement of ourselves and others and determining if these still serve us. It can be a time of opening up and facing those things we have been afraid to confront or what we have been afraid of doing for fear of doing the wrong things in the eyes of others.

This eclipse is about setting yourself free of limiting beliefs, shoulds and fears. Sag as energy is all about inspirational growth via expanding one's ideas, beliefs and philosophies, growth by education and travel where we are exposed to new and exciting ideas.

Judgement and living via others expectations shut down growth, and Sagittarius energy needs to grow continually. This eclipse will shine a lunar light on anything that helps us understand the world and ask us to question it without our rose coloured glasses on.

The eclipse is about changing the way you are growing and planting new seeds for inner growth.

Starting from now, you could begin to ask yourself all these questions, take a look within and re-assess. If you discover old held beliefs that no longer work for you, write them down and then safely burn the list to let it go, then during the new moon lunar eclipse that occurs in a few weeks, you can begin to write the intentions for the new growth, new direction, new beliefs that will help you to grow

Occurring at the same period as the eclipse, we have the ruling planet of Sagittarius, Jupiter in the sign of Pisces. This symbolically asks us to let go and be transparent about what is 'real' and 'not real' for us. This is harder to do than say as we are often so imbued with our stuff that we can't see the trees for the forest. It could be worth thinking about being brave enough to ask those who know you best, to be honest with you about where they feel this may be happening for you.

Ultimately this is about self-forgiving and self-accepting who you were and who you will be. Eclipses are about change, so change does need to occur., so get cleaning out and releasing old parts of ourselves to make way for the new.

Sagittarius ultimate endpoint is always to find meaning in life- meaning in both the smallest and most significant ways. Use this time to assess what brings real meaning to your life… for now… as this process is an ever-evolving one as we traverse life's path. One day you are convinced you have the meaning of life all worked out, only to have an event or circumstance propelling you toward a completely different truth and meaning; the process is endless.

A few days after this full moon eclipse, our friend Mercury who is currently at home in the sign of Gemini, turns retrograde, appearing to turn backwards in the sky. When Mercury is retrograde, lots of things like computers not working, happen but on an inner level, we can review, reconnect and re-examine Gemini types of qualities, like our communications, connections and potentially find information and learnings where we may not be expecting them. Of course, this is also a time to check the details, dotting the i's crossing your t's. Attempt to avoid contract signings and or negotiations, and with other planetary influences around the same time, if something appears too good to be true, it probably is. This is not a time to look at life through rose coloured glasses.

A lot is going on now, and this energy will be challenging for some, but remember it can bring real opportunity to help see your world differently. If you are interested in finding out more about how astrology can help you personally, please email me at Or book directly at
