The big event of this week is a total lunar eclipse at 24 degrees of Sagittarius. This eclipse will really pack a punch due to it being a total eclipse, and the next six months will reveal how it will affect us. People are afraid of eclipses because of the Old School astrology and folklore interpreting them as something foreboding, turning light into darkness when we didn’t have electricity or ways of protecting ourselves from the elements. Lunar eclipses are focused around emotions, prominent women in our lives and our sense of renewal. This Gemini/Sagittarius eclipse pattern is rattling many cages due to the changeable nature of the signs involved. Adaptation and expansion of horizons are the themes of this set of eclipses, so get ready to rumble and roll again.
