Total Lunar Eclipse
Full Moon in Sagittarius
June 15, 2011
By Maharani Rutan©
On June 15, 2011 at approximately 4:12pm EST the skies will be darken by the moon and the little light will laminate the sky with the total lunar eclipse. Prior to the eclipse the full moon will enter Sagittarius at 24 degrees within a 6 degree orb.
As the spring leaves us and summer enters our atmosphere, Strawberry Moon or English name “Rose Moon” is a time to plant and harvest. The Strawberry Moon was adopted from the “Alonquin Tribe” which described this moon as a time to harvest strawberries since strawberries have such a short time to harvest. This is not just a strawberry moon however; it is a Full Strawberry Moon, for great romantics it’s the Rose Moon, as the strawberries start to sprout and roses are full blast passion is in the air.
“The lunar eclipse at 24 degrees of Sagittarius calls for freedom, justice and the potential of wide open spaces and places for those who are fortunate enough to have the second eclipse of the month favorably positioned in his/her chart. Sagittarius is the natural ruler of the ninth house of travel and education, legal and medical affairs, education, publishing, higher mind and general outlook on the world. It is time to re-access our relationships with all of those people and things relevant to our lives as well as our relationships with others, and consider possibilities of new frontiers on many levels.” Leslie Hale
“The final Full Moon of the spring season closely aligns with the Moon’s nodal axis in Sagittarius/Gemini pointing towards the Galactic Center. These three combined aspects take place just six days before the Summer Solstice coinciding with a period of 18 months (a double human gestation) until the completion of the Mayan Calendar on December 21, 2012.” Lee Stillwaters
For those who can remember the visibility of this eclipse is similar to the one that occurred about thirty years ago. The exact date of this eclipse goes back to July 06, 1982, where the Milky Way glowed and the sky sparked with stars. Though we had a similar eclipse also on December 21, 2010, this eclipse is quite unique in a way that it could last up to 100 minutes.
This beautiful lunar eclipse will begin its journey at 20:00 GMT south of the Pacific Ocean and move northeast to the Fiji Islands, North Pacific Ocean, and Northeast parts of Russia. The eclipses journey will end in the South Pacific Ocean, Northwestern Chile, Bolivia, Parts of Brazil and North Atlantic Ocean. Those people who will have an advantage to view this beautiful celestial transformation can witness it if they are living or visiting South America, Africa, Europe, Middle East Asia, Australia, Antarctica, Atlantic and India or if you are flying across the ocean during this time it will be visible in the Southwestern Pacific Ocean.
The lunar eclipse could be a double edged sword. There is a greater chance that feelings of uncertainties, nervousness, panic and even erratic behaviors could become a theme of the this eclipse and full moon, even though there is no scientific data or studies to prove this. It could also be a time of passion and romanticism. To most people the eyes and lips can be very tempting as well as visions of the ideal romance. Be loved during this eclipse.
“The darker side of Jupiter is over expansion and over blowing situations or placing an over abundant amount of confidence in people and situations that do not have the strength to stand on their own in the long term.” Leslie Hale
Those that will be affected by the Total Lunar Eclipse are all mutable signs. The greater intensity will be to Sagittarius, Pisces, Virgo and Gemini. Since this eclipse falls in sign of Sagittarius, those who have any Sagittarius planets will be greatly affected. I would suggest prior to having a Vedic Reading I recommend to have an Astrological reading to pave the road to an understanding of the future and let me be the guide to get you through it.
The eclipse in Sagittarius is the beginning of the series of eclipses that will be prominent in the mutable signs; some may call it a beginning of a new journey. The last of the eclipses in Sagittarius may not climax until approximately 2013. Therefore, those that have Sagittarius in their chart whether a progressed or natal will be greatly affected negative or positive depending on how well the energy is embraced or rejected.
“Those most affected will be Sagittarians’ born December 15-20, Gemini’s born June 12-19, Virgos born September 14-21, and Pisces born March 11-14, or anyone with a person planet being aspected by the eclipse, which an astrologer could easily spot.” Leslie Hale
When a lunar eclipse occurs, the earth is passing between the Sun and the Moon, creating a Full Moon as we experience every month – but in this case, the alignment is perfect. The strength of the Full Moon is great, yet it is totally covered for about an hour by the earth’s shadow. The Sun and Moon are occupying opposite Astrological signs, therefore emphasizing the particular polarity inherent in those signs. During the period of laminations the Moon’s supportive light is momentary. We may experience a crisis depending the astrological sign in which the eclipse occurs, and personally upon the natal astrological house (realm of influence), as well as the major aspects made to natal planets.
This eclipse is particularly relationship oriented – and our relations with others can be severed, challenged, or suddenly welded together as the shock calls one to action. We may deeply believe our feelings and needs within the framework of the house, sign and planetary aspects affected. To fully welcome the potential in the lunar eclipse, we must explore both houses and signs that are brought into play. Where the Moon is – we can confront our demons, old habits and fears, and where the Sun is we may find the means to embrace a release from whatever bondage we experience in life through our creative efforts. In any event, there are opportunities for deeper understanding, and finding a balance in our lives
The last time we felt this much energy was December 21, 2010, which echoed our ability to communicate, to speak our thoughts and beliefs in more direct way yet fearing the consequences of our actions. Though the December 21 eclipse was in the axis of Sagittarius/Gemini, this eclipse is falling in the middle of Gemini/Sagittarius axis. We pressed the reset button and started the engine again in the opposite end of the spectrum.
The Moon in Sagittarius brings a time of journey seeking and impulsiveness. People may feel more daring, sociable, and fun loving. It is a good time for exploring happiness and ideas and for broadening the psyche. Like the Archer that represents Sagittarius, people may have an inclination toward seeking out the truth and higher meaning and following sixth sense, as well as flights of fancy. While the desire for independence will be strong, people may want to do what they want, when they want, and be impulsive and independent. These inclinations can cause impatience and a strong need for independence
Moon in Sagittarius is very sincere with feelings. It is wise and rational in expressive situations. The moons energy treats others with admiration, compassion and a sense of humor. Sagittarius moon is all about telling it like it is, even if the truth painful. Sagittarius Moon needs for others to be honest tool. Deception can create a deep wound. The energy gives capacity for education to teach or to be taught. Every emotional test is an opportunity for to learn, and to help others with the knowledge which has been gained.
A few days before the eclipse and full moon is considered a waxing moon. It is my suggestion to get into a spiritual bath or do things are spiritual such as yoga, relaxation or even slow walk on the beach.
The New Moon signals a time of materialization, manifestation and evocation. There is an urgency make things happen something new something spontaneous. If it be something small the way you look at how you live or a new action or path to your life journey it does not matter what matters is something new will graced. The energy perfect cease the change and knowing in your heart that if it is honorable it will always be blessed. What is that you want to create?
However, if you feel very robustly about something, you will persistently preserve your position – never backing down. You need a tranquil environment. You have a melodic voice and pleasing talent. You foster others by providing for their needs. You need a relationship with your mother that is peaceful, calm and secure.
The Moon in Sagittarius brings a time of escapades and impulsiveness. People may feel more daring, welcoming, and fun loving. It is a good time for exploring interests and ideas and for broadening the mind. Like the Archer that represents Sagittarius, people may have a partiality toward seeking out genuineness and higher meaning and following their sixth sense, as well as flights of conjure. While the desire for autonomy will be strong, people may want to do what they want, when they want, and be impetuous and self-sufficient. These inclinations can cause restlessness and a strong need for freedom.
The Sagittarius energy is wise and idealistic in emotional situations. There is a need to treat others with admiration, compassion and a sense of humor. The energy is greater to tell it like it is even if the truth hurts. Sagittarius Moon needs for others to be honest the deep wounds of deception will not be appreciated. The energy is also right for coaching others, and is an avid learner. Every emotional challenge is an opportunity for to learn, and to help others with the knowledge which has been gained.
This eclipse will force all of us to the light of our Devine. And the Devine be the comfort and protection zone. The eclipse will also question you what about your home? What about your family? What about your security? The solar eclipse forces you to aggressively make that change. It is about new beginnings, and all of a sudden old issues comes a forefront and forcing you to take a different tactic. Whereas good people become even better and the worse people the worse. One must take the time to cleanse the energy and be easy not to make bold moves.
I will be accepting appointments for 6- months’ in-depth reading of self-portrait, for Mutable signs. This eclipse does fall in the mutable signs energy. I highly encourage all mutable sign (Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini and Virgo’s) to get a reading done on or before June 15 through June 24, 2010. The reading which I give to you will set the stage for the next eclipse which will be placing it self in mutable signs, on November 25, 2011
“Mercury arrives in the sign of Cancer adding an intuitive dimension to our thoughts and communications through the July 1st Solar Eclipse in Cancer.” Lee Stillwaters
Additionally, Cardinal signs need to keep their emotions in check since the last of their eclipses is coming to a climax on July 01, 2011. Another eclipse in cardinal sign is not scheduled until 2013; therefore, it may be a due or die situation for many. Of course with anything I encourage you to speak to a astrologer prior to having a reading done by me to see if any of the eclipses on Jun 01, 2011, Jun 15, 2011 and July 01, 2011 will be more prominent than others.
You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding a satisfying relationships and success, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy the mantra for solar eclipse is:
For the Solar Eclipse is
“Om Eim Saraswatiyei Swaha”
(Om I’M Sah-Rah-Swah-Tee-Yei Swah- Ha)
And for the Full moon Sagittarius is
“Om Gurave Nahmaha”
(Om Goo rah vey Nahm ah ha)
This mantra begins to awaken and activate the entire chakra. It specifically prepares the charka to emable to handle the inflow of Jupiter energy that give chakra it power.
Remember the 12 aspirations. Don’t forget to cross the ones you have already accomplished and make new ones. Don’t forget to manifest matters concerning materialistic things at this time. And most of all don’t forget to light a white candle that day carve your name on the candle anoint the candle with Frankincense oil and chant Psalm 65 three times. If you should have any other questions regarding the full moon or solar eclipse, please feel free to contact me.
It’s a time for meditation and it is a time to say good-bye to old and come into new. Make sure you know what you exactly want because it may not be what the universe has set out for you.
Please remember that there is another eclipse presenting itself on July 01, 2011 which will affect Cardinal signs. I will explain more as we speak on the phone.
Wishing you a safe passage through this romantic eclipse.
