Each month, you can always count on the Full Moon to unleash power and magic in the night sky. However, every once in a while a total lunar eclipse (aka a Blood Moon) interrupts your usual lunar programming. Instead of a Full Moon, which radiates a soft pearly glow, the light of a lunar eclipse burns in the color of a dark and ominous red.
Instead of the usual chaos that tends to happen with a Full Moon, a lunar eclipse has the power to evoke sudden and unexpected changes. It may all sound like drama, but your May 2021 Blood Moon horoscope proves that the experience is happening for a reason.
About every six months something called “eclipse season” begins. This is a short window of time in which at least one solar eclipse and one lunar eclipse will occur within a few weeks. However, a lot can happen in a matter of weeks. In the case of eclipse season, it can result in major ramifications in your life and the lives of others.
An eclipse occurs when a Full Moon or a New Moon activates the lunar nodes. In essence, the lunar nodes represent your ultimate destiny, the north node represents the direction you are heading and the south node represents the energy you are moving away from.
When this happens, big changes tend to happen very quickly. In fact, an eclipse has the potential to accelerate you towards your inevitable destiny. The next lunar eclipse, scheduled for May 26 at 7:13 a.m. ET rises in an adventurous, open-minded, free-spirited Sagittarius at 5 degrees.
This particular eclipse is a continuation of the solar eclipse in Sagittarius that took place on December 14, 2020. To better understand what this eclipse means to you, think back to what was going on in your life back then. There is a good chance that you will receive answers to some of the questions you were wondering at the time.
Each zodiac sign will feel the effects of this eclipse. However, if your natal chart has planets in mutable signs (especially between 0 and 10 degrees), you will feel its impact even more intensely. Here’s what you can expect, according to Astrology:
You may be seeing things from a new perspective. It’s like taking a step back and considering the big picture instead of obsessing over a little detail.
New opportunities are lining up in your favor, however, you need to be open-minded about your next destination. Plans don’t always come to fruition, so adopt spontaneous interventions.
The way you invest your time, energy, and emotions say a lot about how your success develops. It’s time to ask yourself if you are allocating your resources in a meaningful way.
Take the time to settle your debts, make smart financial investments, and rethink the boundaries of your relationships. Allow the change to trigger a deeper transformation.
You are in the midst of so many unexpected changes and it encourages you to grow as a person. However, it is possible that some of your relationships are not meant to be part of this next chapter in your life.
If you find yourself saying “goodbye” to someone important, accept the fact that you are also going to say “hello” to someone new.
You might be blinded by the realization that your daily routine and wellness habits aren’t supporting you at best. It’s time to rethink the way you go about your day-to-day life.
Reconsider your priorities such as your health, your job, and your overall perspective on your well-being. Take the time to nurture yourself through practical actions.
You may feel a deeper desire to express yourself artistically. You may accept that the fears and inhibitions that keep you from tapping into your creativity have no place in your future.
It’s time to make a more meaningful commitment to honor your imagination and do whatever it takes to make you feel the joy you deserve to feel.
Your personal life can absorb the shockwaves of change. These changes could upset your life situation as well as your family dynamics.
The bottom line, however, is that you are encouraged to create the home that you always wanted to have. Infuse your life with the love, intimacy, and sanctity that makes you feel safe and protected.
You may feel the desire to remove something from your chest; to finally say what you always wanted to say. You have a voice for a reason and that reason is to use it.
Go forward with a courageous commitment to expressing your thoughts and ideas. However, don’t forget to use your words to manifest your vision for a better reality.
You may be dealing with sudden and significant changes in your finances. However, you may also be forced to reconsider the difference between what you want and what you need.
You don’t need materialistic things to prove that you are successful and worthy of admiration. Set financial goals that reflect your deeper needs.
Prepare for unexpected changes in any aspect of your life. These changes may seem random at first, but ultimately they’re designed to pull you out of your comfort zone and force you to embrace your ultimate destiny.
Sometimes the Universe needs to step in and put you on the path that you are meant to take.
You may be parting ways with the pain you had inside. There is a good chance that you are clinging to the wounds of your past because you are only human.
Now is the time to engage in the necessary therapy, healing, and spiritual rejuvenation that will free you from these negative feelings. Free yourself from your internal barriers.
You may need to think more carefully about who you choose to spend time with. Your friends and associates have so much influence over who you become, and it’s time to choose your associates more carefully.
Maybe it’s time to work with like-minded people to achieve a common goal. You have the power to start a revolution if you want to.
Your career is going through a critical moment; you may be facing abrupt changes in your career path that you did not expect.
However, these changes encourage you to focus on career goals that are more aligned with your dreams. Even if you feel like you are far behind, have confidence that better opportunities are on the way.
