Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 15° Sagittarius, 12:12pm PT Friday June 5, 2020
Eclipses are one of the most important cosmic events we experience here on earth. We have our own Moon (as do many other planets). We don’t share it with any other planet – so transits or events which impact the Moon impact us deeply and personally.
Eclipses signal endings, beginnings and major life events and changes. If we trace back to previous eclipses we can often pinpoint major life changes occurring around the time of them* (See link at the bottom of the article)
They are not to be feared, but to be revered, as change is a natural part of life. Each Eclipse has different power levels and ways it will uniquely impact us… for example a Penumbral Eclipse is not as strong as a full, or total Eclipse. A Penumbral Eclipse is where only a small portion of the Moon is shaded.
Every year we have what’s called “Eclipse Season” where there’s 2-3 in the winter and another 2-3 in the summer. This year we have 6 Eclipses! This signals a year of massive change in the area where the Eclipses take place. This summer we have 3 in quick succession. Two in June and another in July.
Here’s the 2020 dates:
January 10, 2020 – Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Cancer
June 5, 2020 – Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius
June 21, 2020 – Annular Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius
July 4, 2020 – Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn
November 29, 2020 – Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Gemini
December 14, 2020 – Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius
The first summer Eclipse takes place on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis. We are slowly phasing out of Capricorn/Cancer, the last of the Capricorn/Cancer axis occurs on July 4.
Capricorn represents Authority, government, old systems, material wealth, masculine achievements. Cancer represents home, family, the divine mother, nurturance, emotional wellness, feminine world.
We can see how much these themes were highlighted over the last couple years, especially at the end of this axis, when we’ve all been asked to stay home.
This Eclipses now move into the Sagittarius/Gemini Axis for the next year – this is the axis of the teacher and student archetypes. Sagittarius is the teacher, and Gemini is the student.
A Full Moon Eclipse in Sagittarius will have us make BIG changes in our BELIEF SYSTEMS.
Sagittarius is the master teacher. We must now ask ourselves – what do we need to learn? Now is the time to be a student, not a teacher. Sit back and learn. Let go of your old beliefs, and allow new beliefs in. Use the energy of the Full Moon Eclipse to release anything no longer serving you.
Full Moon Eclipse Contemplation:
What old beliefs are no longer serving me? What old beliefs and learnings can I release (and metaphorically burn to the ground?)
A Full Moon illuminates our blind spots, so we may have deeper and clearer insight into ourselves at this time. It’s also a time of heightened energy so be careful if you start feeling overwhelmed, take care of yourself.
Everything that’s occurring in the world right now can be traced back to the Saturn/Pluto conjunction which occurred in January, which started the process of dismantling old worn out structures.
This process of dismantling old structures is continuing throughout 2020. This Eclipse helps this process forward by highlighting our belief systems and what needs to change, no more time to wait!
Listen, Learn and Evolve during this time.
This Eclipse also Squares Mars and Neptune. Mars is the sign of war, of protest, of aggression. There may be more challenges this weekend. A square with Neptune creates great disillusionment and division. Be careful out there dear friends!
Astrologically we are birthing a new world this year, and the process can feel painful – but so necessary.

Full Moon Ritual – best done under the bright light of the moon
- Have a pen and paper handy
- Take some time to meditate by listening to some music, using a mantra, anything that works to get you into a meditative space
- Close your eyes and feel deep into your heart – don’t rush this process, really feel into it
- When you feel ready to write down one area or specific thing (or person) in your life it’s time to let go of (ideally related to where the full moon is happening in your chart, see your Rising Sign above).
- Have a container of water nearby, and burn the piece of paper (use tweezers to hold it without burning your fingertips). As it burns really imagine letting it go.
- After you’ve let it go, cleanse – bath with rose petals, salts, crystals, feel the energy of this issue, pattern, person, whatever it is really drain from your system as the water drains.
- Put on some nice fun dancey music
- Dance in the moonlight!
- Pull some tarot or oracle cards for advice for the next month until the next full moon (‘What do I need to know about the next month?’)
