The Lunar Eclipse might have passed but its effect can last for weeks (some say months). Lunar eclipses happen when the Earth lines up between the Sun and the Moon. In Astrology, the Earth represents our daily life and all the mundane tasks that come with it. The Sun is our aspirations including what we want to achieve in the near term (like all the things you want to do before Santa is scheduled to slide down the chimney). And the Moon represents our emotions, desires and needs.
In a Lunar Eclipse period our daily lives get in the way of the bigger, more important goals. For example, you might want to have a perfect “Thomas Kincade” holiday look about your house and the warmth and glow of family and friends getting together. But the eclipse has brought you a broken oven, an extra project at work and a 'things-to-do' list that is long enough to wear as a scarf.
This particular eclipse was in Sagittarius and Gemini. Sagittarius represents religion (which we're seeing as Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly trade barbs about the “war on Christmas”), politics (plenty of that happening right now) and on a more personal level, our beliefs about how holidays should be celebrated. Gemini represents communication, the ability to multi-task and the things that go on in our own neighborhoods.
If you are Sagittarius or Gemini, you are particularly sensitive to this eclipse. It's a time to clarify what you need for this holiday season and to be vocal about it. Let people know your wishes. If you are Virgo or Pisces you are also strongly affected by this eclipse but your experience may be that others voice their wishes to you which causes you to change your plans.
This eclipse can also hit other planets in your chart other than your Sun sign. So tell others your vision for this holiday season and listen when they tell you theirs. And together you can put together a beautiful, happy holiday.
