A 'Luna See' Special report ;-) ...
This is the exact minute of the Lunar Eclipse as I post. I thought, as artists that we might really really really enjoy and benefit from the share that I am including here. Take out your jouranl and make some notes anchoring your feelings and ideas regarding what is posted below. This information comes through the brilliance of my dear artist sister friend Sandra. She and I are both trained as teachers of moon phase connections to our creative spirit...what I call 'Luna See'.

I felt that we could all bask in the glow of wherever we are as we take this information written so clearly and beautifully by Sandra. Please breathe it in... like a balm... for our time. Read using the intuitive eyes of your heart and you will be enriched in your creative direction and voice.

Sandra writes:
A lunar eclipse is a time of beginnings, endings, exposure and major changes. It always has something to do with "relationships". The changes are tied to how we relate and will have a lasting impression. Emotions run high, causing upsets and feelings of disorientation. Actions taken often do not have the expected results, but they do bring awareness and enlightenment. The energy of an eclipse is at its strongest during the two days before and three days after its occurrence.

At lunar eclipses we: merge, unite, announce, contact, present ourselves, bring something out into the open, make decisions, engage, rise to the challenge, make an effort, change, get a new perspective, join with others, take on greater challenges, travel at a faster pace, feel restless, feel pressured by deadlines and a buildup of emotions, and experience excitement and crisis.

During a Full Moon, the Sun and Moon are in opposition, also called the Full Phase, indicating the linking of soul to spirit and awareness of purpose gained through relationship with another. A lunar eclipse is a supercharged Full Moon. The blocking of the Moon's reflection of the Sun's light by the Earth suggests that our material viewpoint stands in the way of our "seeing the light". It serves as a reminder that we need to realize how we are held in the dark by virtue of our perspective.

The Sun is in Cancer and the Moon is in Capricorn during the partial lunar eclipse on June 26. Mundanely speaking, the corporate or political machine is out of balance with the emotional stability of the public. Personally speaking, professional goals are out of balance with emotional needs. In both situations, authoritative behavior blocks nurturing solutions. The challenge is to recognize the emotions while honoring responsibilities.

Pluto conjunct the Moon and opposite the Sun highlights an obsessive compulsive quality to this eclipse period, which is likely to manifest in attempts at emotional manipulation. Additionally the square aspect between Jupiter in Aries and Mercury in Cancer suggests emotional discourse about the needs of the people vs. the rights of the individual, challenging debates between progressive leadership and the security minded public, and political arguments over foreign concerns. Venus in Leo sesquare Uranus in Aries implies the need to reframe recent discoveries and refine newly-acquired values.

I'll see you Monday for our regular 'Luna See'.

  1. Timely info for me - I felt a whirlwind of emotional energies kicking reason out of the way a few times over the past couple days, thankfully during *safe* times when I could work it through, before facing those i wanted to lash out at!! I refer to the construction project we soon will have underway, and the poor communication involved; begged for and ignored... But with energy released the night before, the meeting went smoothly and I was able to be present, clear and open - I will continue to keep my awareness keyed up with this great info form Sandra. Thank you both for the touchstones to my own Luna See :)

  2. Interesting post. I could relate to a lot of it. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  3. I found this post a great reflection of my own life in the last few days. It's as if the lunar energy opened up my eyes and I could finally "see the light" with respect to my work relationships. I discovered I'd been making up obstacles where there were none to be found. I was also struck by the phrase "professional goals are out of balance with emotional needs." That's been a repeating theme for me and it too came to light in the last few days along with the time to think things through. Thanks as always for your words.

  4. I loved this post! Thank you!

  5. Out of balance powers against nurturing solutions. Wow.

    Lots of new energy running through for sure. Didn't see the eclipse. Lots of cloud till late then the world outside lit up glowing. Like Robyn I am more awakened in Autumn I think. Perhaps that's from old New England season patterns in my body??

    There r so many lines of energy. Thank u both for the fascinating.

  6. I love reading your posts .... I learn so much from them. Isn't there going to be another eclipse on July 11th? What's the effect of two eclipses very close to each other and does that happen very often? How will that affect the psyche of the world?
    Thanks so much Iona for all your support and participation with my blog. You're a very special lady.
