In need of a refreshing drink to amid the hectic eclipse energies? Or perhaps you’re looking for a spirited libation to celebrate the occasion? From a Bees Knees Variation, to a nonalcoholic spiced honey lemonade, and whiskey sour for spirited new beginnings, I have you covered!
About this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse
Within arms reach of our entrance to summer, is a series of eclipses and planetary retrogrades guaranteed to give a bit of a bumpy ride. The first stop on this astrological adventure is the total lunar eclipse and super moon in philosophy-driven Sagittarius on Wednesday May 26.
Lunar eclipses, often referred to as magnified full moons, tend to craft some emotional turbulence as events are brought to a culmination. You can look back at the Sagittarius Solar and Gemini Lunar eclipse from December as to what patterns or themes may again arise for you. Add in that this is a super moon (meaning the moon is closer to the earth in its elliptical orbit), and you can imagine how this might be a time where emotions and revelations are heightened. But thankfully, by looking at what to expect, you can utilize these events for personal growth and transformation.
The Moon in Sagittarius leads us to ponder our “higher” nature. A sign that questions higher answers, belief systems, philosophies, morals, and perhaps even our purpose – the moon in this sign can illuminate these issues and allies. A mutable fire sign, the moon in Sagittarius can also inspire flippancy and perhaps a flare of dramaticism. With the polarity between the detail- and information-oriented, social Gemini sun, and philosophy-driven Sagittarius moon, the eclipse can bring about the realization of rough truths, or craft friction in social situations as matters come to fruition. Use the time to invoke a change in perspective, to bring about a significant turning point in your life with whatever the eclipse brings to light. This can be a profound time of spiritual awakening, albeit with some dramatics perhaps, but you can utilize this to upgrade to the next level.
Other astrological alignments are happening at this time, such as Jupiter in Pisces forming a square, so be sure to check out astrological channels on YouTube to get more information.
