So we have been in quite an eclipse portal! The final 3rd is here. Eclipses usually come in pairs but we’ve had 3 this time around and I know we are all feeling the activation from the winds of change! This last one is also a SuperMoon as you will read below and it is sure to be felt.
Here are the Astral Insights from the most inspiring readers of the planetary bodies. First from the always wonderful astrologer Kelley Rosano:
“The Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse on May 24- 25 is one of the most powerful Full Moons of 2013.  The Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse is the third of three eclipses in a row.  This eclipse also involves a SuperMoon, when the Moon is as close as it ever gets to the Earth, and it’s in a straight alignment with the Sun and Earth. The SuperMoon makes this Lunar Eclipse extra potent and important.”
“The Moon controls the oceans and tides.  Our bodies are more than sixty percent water.  You will feel this powerful Lunar Eclipse in your physical body and in the Earth below your feet.  This Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse can feel like a soothing, healing balm on your aching wounds.  The Cosmic Mother Nurses her children back to full health and vitality. “
The Phoenix rises from the ashes of the past.  You, too, can recreate yourself and make a fresh start.  You can experience a Brilliant Breakthrough.  That is this Full Moon’s message.”
Sagittarius empowers you stay on your path.  Even when the road twists and turns, you can feel vibrant, healthy, and strong.  How do you do this?  Keep your mind engaged and focused on inspired action.  Invest your energy in healing yourself and introducing innovations into your life wherever you are ready for expansion and fulfillment.”
“Pluto and Uranus make an exact square (challenge) on May 20.  Pluto and Uranus require you to make significant changes.  For instance, many people are experiencing job changes, long-term relationship completions, health issues, and/or financial problems.  Is it any wonder you might feel overwhelmed or fearful due to the changes happening to you?  You are trying to maintain your balance, keep your spirits up, stay positive, and move forward.  This can be a daunting task.”
“Your current process (journey) is as important as your destination.  You can choose to be positive and proactive, even while your growth is swift and painful.  Attitude is everything.  The more willing you are to do inner work and take full responsibility for your choices and behavior, the more you can turn obstacles into stepping-stones.”
“Experiencing a Brilliant Breakthrough may require that you raise your standards and upgrade your relationships.  It is time to be in integrity and practice the Golden Rule, ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you…’”
Pluto and Uranus are reminding you that it is time to release resistance.  Are you resisting the changes taking place in your life?  Choose your battles wisely.  Hang loose on making judgments about what is happening—you may not have a full understanding of unfolding events.  What seems to be negative on the surface could turn out to be a blessing in disguise.  It might also be a Brilliant Breakthrough that leads you to a better, more fulfilling life.”
“You may find yourself at the end of a relationship, a job lay-off, or a business closing.  You can feel as though you are operating in crisis mode.  Circumstances for those around you may also seem to be falling apart.  In truth, you are in completion mode.  These events are not always graceful, so go easy on yourself.  You may feel less than a Self-master.  You may feel more like a lost soul.  Take comfort, for you are not alone.  Everyone is experiencing these life-changing events.”
“This experience may even feel like a death of sorts.  Each of us has our own timetable for this process…These stages seem most likely to manifest when 1) change is externally imposed, and 2) something of value is being lost or given up because of the change.  During the breakdown phase, you may find yourself in denial and depression.  You then move on to hope and acceptance.  You can jump around quite a bit in the first few months after endings…There are no short cuts to growth.  Please be patient with your process, and allow your life to unfold naturally.”

From the wise Dipali Desai and her Celestial Space Astrology:
“We have almost arrived at a peak point where the energies will soon disperse. There is much to extract from the prominent issues arising in life, and as a student of life, it is wise to take really good notes for contemplation and to use later.  We are at the final eclipse for this time period, which is the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius at 4° degrees on May 24/25th, 2013…”
“One theme that stands out now is the desire to feel optimistic about life, especially since there are major changes happening now. And this occurs by seeking the deeper meaning to whatever is going on in our lives.”
“The emotions and issues rising up around the time of the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius may feel unstable and over the top. A good way to handle the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is: with great wisdom maintain a clear aim or intention.”
“Sagittarius is a fire element, and a mutable mode of expression. What motivates us? What adds to our passion for living a meaningful life? What fizzles our inner flame temporarily? And what do we need to do to continuously feel and feed the passion in every day life?”
“…There is a dynamic astrological configuration happening between the Sun in Gemini, Moon in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces…”
“As an example of this energy configuration and symbolism, someone says something it could target a very perhaps overly sensitive spot within you. Either it will generate more tension and conflict or it will give us the specific insight to help in the forgiving and healing process. It may challenge you to communicate your thoughts and feelings in a more coherent manner.”
With 3 planets in Gemini plus the Sun, this emphasizes a stimulating time both in the mental level of the energetic field and intellectually. This suggests that the energy could produce a scattering of energy and influence with so much buzz within the mind. It may be easy to get lost in ‘he said she said or they said.’  Be sure to check the facts three times, pause to listen properly before you offer a reply or response. Stick to the full truth rather than embellishing.”
“Notice what is coming to full completion in your life now. What symbolic door are you closing? How will things end?  The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius provides the perfect ground to let yourself move into this final phase of letting go. Don’t let the opportunity pass you by.”

Next some great insights from the wonderful Molly Hall from About/ Astrology.com: 
“The May 25th lunar eclipse ends a month of release and coming down to Earth. The Scorpio and Taurus eclipses were a call to invest more in what nourishes, than what steals our vital energies. For some, it’s been full of sobering experiences or having bubbles burst.”
“That phenomenon of coming out of denial, ‘waking up’ to hidden truths, or meeting the shadow lightens the load. That’s the reward of taking the risk — it’s the enlightening process! We die to old realities, and enter new ones. The past can eventually feel like a lifetime ago. ‘I can’t believe I use to think that way,’ we say.”
“The release of old traumas and limiting beliefs frees up energy to get fired up about the future, to feel optimistic and aim for something higher. A Sagittarius Full Moon is divine timing, to elevate our thinking!”
The release brings more of your soul into the now. This gives you the agility to act on what’s happening, and trust your instincts. A lot of change can happen in a short time!”
“Between the high solar activity (there’s a geomagnetic storm in-progress), and the waxing Uranus-Pluto square, the tension is great showing both inwardly and outwardly. These strong currents are surely stimulating — they get us moving! There’s a sense of urgency in the air. And yet, we can also feel agitated or scrambled by the big squeeze. It’s not always clear how best to direct it. My normally super high-energy husband said he feels tired, but extremely restless to be doing something.”
“…A Full Moon in Sagittarius now, with all that’s going on, energizes the mind. This attracts us to ideas and people that put things into an inspired frame, rather than one that’s demoralizing. This is the time to shift, to shake off the cobwebs, and scan the horizon for an idea whose time has come.”
“…Eclipses are often unsettling, and not the best time for major decisions. The fast currents in the air now, make it one for experimenting with perception. It’s time to crack open fixed thinking, and with curiosity, explore the variety of angles from which to see. This is a very fluid eclipse, with six mutable planets in play.”
“…It’s smart to suss things out beyond first impressions. Let a situation percolate, before drawing conclusions. What’s grasped at mercurial speed may not be the full story.”
“But my oh my, what a great time for artists and dreamers, to be in the zone, and see where it leads. Magical realism is the norm, as Neptune lures the spirited Full Moon energies toward enchantment and the otherworldly.”
“Socializing can mean short encounters that are odd, but meaningful. A brief encounter drops something in your mindstream that makes you look at something in a completely different way. It can be an optimistic time, as old realities dissolve and many feel askew. It’s a scene of creative chaos — the excitement comes from being on the edge of an adventure. Keep your eyes on what inspires you and feels authentic, while being light on your feet, able to adapt to the changes of our time.”

Last but not least some great insights from the  from The Power Path.com. First from Lena Stevens:
“It is difficult to predict what the fallout may be from what has been stirred up during this month but you can expect some big energy to be moving around. The potency of this time could trigger security issues, judgment and doubt. Hopefully you will have had synchronicity and signs during the month that will keep you focused positively on your newfound abilities to manifest. This full moon is a time to recommit to what you know in your heart to be true about what you want to manifest.”
“Keep in mind that every thought, intention, desire, doubt, emotion, reaction and action has been greatly magnified during this time. Most likely you have had to deal with an intensity level in your life that feels bigger than what you have had to deal with in the past. You are giving birth to a new self and the birth process is stretching you in ways that you have not experienced before. Think of yourself in training for the higher frequency and expensive energy emerging on the planet.”
“It is always important that you take some time and be in gratitude for your ability to step up to what life is giving you as well as to take a breath and a break from it all when you need balance. And take care of the body in some way as the body struggles with new energies it does not understand. You may be experiencing aches and pains you never had before. Work with water, drink lots of it, immerse yourself in it and make sure you are getting enough minerals.”

And from the always insightful astrologer Pat Liles:
“We are completing a notable growth period provided by the three-eclipse container of the last month and fueled by the awakening of the solar flares. With 2012-13 the peak in the 11-year sunspot cycle, the sunspots, so rapid fire in 2012 have remained quiet all year until now. Currently, totally active! They held their fire until we needed some extra fuel for the growth we have experienced in the last eclipse month.”
We’re being stretched, prodded, pressured and examined to see what we’re made of, and what we value enough to show up for. Windows like these help us destabilize, lose the familiar, and get out of our well-developed minds and get a glimpse of Spirit’s intention for our highest good. Our bodies don’t like it; resistance surfaces, but destabilization brings our best shot for regrouping, expanding and shepherding in the higher frequencies, quickened time, and greater balance our planet is now ready for.”
“At the same time, there is such effortless, easeful trine energy available here especially from the water signs-our emotional, receptive, fluid nature where we just tap in and intuitively understand what is going on from our deep knowingness. This trine water energy is part of our learning as well at this time – how to be fluid, receive, use our feminine powers of cooperation…”
It’s a dance! A balancing of pressure and surrender and the Sun’s shift into Gemini is just the energy we need to lighten the dense quality of our physicality so more miraculous energies of the invisible world can be made manifest through each of us….”
“…Everything will be amplified during this eclipse period, so let’s consciously put forth our thoughts, prayers, intentions, and visualizations to activate the highest good for all and the best possible future.”
