Tip of the Week: The historic Hybrid Solar Eclipse culminates as a Lunar Eclipse on May 5 at the powerful 15th degree of Scorpio. This degree is symbolically associated with the last 8th period or approximately 45 days of the year leading to Winter Solstice. In this regard, it carries with it themes of ending, death, and decay but also the realities of change and the promise of regeneration, rebirth, and renewal. As wonderful as is the promise of the latter, it is the process of ending, change, and death that is the hard part. The impact of a Lunar Eclipse is generally emotional and subjective as opposed to eventful. Due to its association with the Lunar South Node, which is also in Scorpio, the symbolic message includes the need to consciously let go, move on, and not look back. It should be noted that the Full Moon is not the time to plant the seeds of intention as is commonly assumed. It can prove exciting regarding various ceremonies, yet its emphasis is more fully on individuality, priorities, and associated healthy boundaries.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

The Scorpio eclipsed Full Moon could prove extra emotionally complex for you. You could undergo any number of emotional reactions. Financial interests and concerns may be the most obvious practical theme. Yet, it is your emotional relationship and subsequent reactions to money that is highlighted.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

This eclipse occurs in your relationship sector. You can expect changes to occur accordingly. These could prove positive as well, especially if you have a good attitude regarding their interpretation and implementation. The influence could also lead to new associations and subsequent opportunities.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

What aspects of your daily routine and lifestyle, in general, are in need of change? It could be an issue of bad habits or the need to let go of traditional attitudes and approaches that no longer genuinely serve you. Focus on soberly and realistically assessing what needs to go or what changes need to occur.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

It is natural to become over-identified with various aspects of our personality. This can prove especially true if we achieved fame and acclaim for various roles played. Yet, change is the law and it is pushing you to entertain new roles and methods. Be open to reinvention of habitual roles as necessary.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

Is your comfort zone eclipsing your sense of freedom and success? This is often the case in regard to missing opportunities. Although success is a relative term, circumstances may require that you become more responsible in terms of your choices especially in as much as they inhibit your overall health.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

Our perceptions are often guided by our beliefs and convictions and lead to our interpretations. Are you sure you see things as they are or have you become attached to conclusive attitudes? If doubt exists, dialogue and debate are warranted and they include deep listening and possible reevaluation.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Our values and priorities are deeply guiding factors regarding our choices, much like our beliefs. Often both are either inherited or socially conditioned. Sometimes we assume that our thoughts are our own, yet upon closer examination, we might realize that they were learned from outer sources.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Are there aspects of your self-concept and overall attitude and habitual mode of expression that no longer serve you? This is an important question to ask at this opportune time with the Lunar Eclipse in your sign. The key now is to avoid the temptation to try to change others and to change yourself.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Making our subconscious, to which we are generally unconscious, conscious is a golden key to personal power. Worse than just buried treasure, sometimes what lurks in the subconscious are hidden enemies such as limiting beliefs, attitudes, and self-concepts. To clear them, all you have to do is identify them.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Do you know what makes you unique and special or do you have the attitude that you are neither? This eclipse is offering you the opportunity to break from of habitual self-concepts which can be understood as your apparent comfort zone, but which is actually causing you to feel quite uncomfortable, emotionally.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

It is common to either feel frustrated with our life or to feel like we are not realizing our potential. However, these opinions may not be accurate, and a clearer understanding of our life might reveal that our circumstances offer more than we realize in terms of time and space without extra obligations.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)                

Whether we realize it or not, our entire scope of perspective on reality is linked to our core philosophy. Do you know what yours is? If asked, would you be able to describe what yours is? Above all, is yours healthy and empowering, or is it negative and cynical? This is your cue to undergo a process of inner review.
