We have experienced a Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse today, Wednesday, May 26, 2021, Penumbral began at 4:47 am, full eclipse began at 7:11 a.m., full eclipse ended at 7:25 a.m. and Penumbral ends at 9:45 a.m. EST. In the Toronto area, the actual full eclipse will be below the horizon but the Penumbral beginning was visible. It is found in the sign of Sagittarius at 5 degrees and 26 minutes. This eclipse lasts a total of 5 hours and 2 minutes but the full eclipse will last 14 minutes.

For this eclipse to have an effect in your chart, you will need to have planets within 3 degrees of 5 degrees Sagittarius (2 degrees to 8 degrees). The conjunction, opposition and square will have the strongest impact, while the trine and sextile will have an influence but not as profound.

The position of natal planets or angles to this degree and within three degrees and how they tie in with other planetary aspects or angles will tell the story regarding your personal life and the influence you will experience.

Lunar eclipses are said to last in months the duration of the eclipse in hours (some individuals, however, say the effects of this event can last as long as one year). This eclipse, being in the sign of Sagittarius, a fire sign and its ruling planet being Jupiter, suggests that this will be a time of opportunity for expansion and growth unless poorly aspected in the natal chart by Saturn which makes this a little more challenging. Jupiter offers up opportunities for travel, enlightenment in many levels and often good luck. The area of life is determined by the house under its influence by this eclipse degree.

The lunar eclipses always have deeper influences. On a social level regarding the masses, it shows the mindset due to information coming through at that time. If any planets cross the degree especially by conjunction, they will stir the energies connected to the eclipse. Mars by conjunction or opposition and the Sun will particularly add to these energies while Saturn will often end situations, if Saturn is in play that is. Mars will often spur major happenings if making contact. This speaks primarily of the duration of this eclipse which lasts about one month.

Eclipses bring change. A Full Moon Lunar eclipse is a time to purge and let go of things that no longer suit life’s circumstances. It is a culmination point when we begin to take note of what has been in place and move to the next level. We often reap what we have sown. Careful consideration should be taken before we plunge into action or on the contrary, consideration of the actions we need to take as we may in the past been avoiding deciding and therefore no steps have been taken. Do not forget we are speaking of the energies of Sagittarius and the planet Jupiter.

Some individuals fear eclipses. In many cases, eclipses foster change, but these changes are needed and should be considered essential.

Enjoy the energies at hand, and unless you have other mitigating factors in your natal chart connected to this positioning, you may find it has little impact on your life. Each individual chart will vary.
