We are under the influence of the April 25 Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, and will have another Lunar Eclipse on May 24 in Sagittarius. In between them, we receive the effects of a Solar Eclipse on May 9, in Taurus.

Lunar Eclipses will only occur at Full Moons and Solar Eclipses happen only on New Moons.  Full Moons bring things to their fullness, bringing full light and full emotion on the characteristics and subjects of the zodiac sign they occur in. Then as the Moon’s light begins to lessen day after day until it’s out of sight, those traits and situations which had reached their peak begin to lessen with the intent of reduction or falling away.

Usually this occurs over the two weeks from a Full Moon until a New Moon. Obviously, once a Full Moon has faded to be hardly seen, the New Moon starts growing in size beginning from nearly being out of sight. A New Moon is when the qualities of the sign it occurs in, begin to grow for us over two weeks until it becomes Full.

We can use our free will to manipulate these opportunities to our advantage. We just had a Full Moon (Lunar Eclipse) in Scorpio so it is time to lessen things like debts, obsession and control issues. Since Scorpio also rules elimination, transformation and rebirth, plus magnifies everything intensely, for one thing, it’s a good time to look clearly at how we use credit.

We may take a closer look at how we digest information and feelings, noticing issues in the stomach (aches), see more clearly the ‘crap’ that we tolerated, thereby visit the bathroom more often, letting go of stuck emotions that no longer serve us.

Put your attention on these things; talk them out with a wise friend and release old worn out ways. The Lunar Eclipse will lengthen the time of elimination from weeks to about six months, and will strongly eclipse out what you no longer need, but can certainly use the help of your own attention. During the fated timing of the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, things change in the biggest way at the destined time.

Here comes our Solar Eclipse on May 9. Prepare now because Solar Eclipses bring in brand spanking new fate and destiny. Will you take part in your destined future playing field rather than default to random occurrences? It’s in Taurus, so begin to focus on your income, worth and assets; talents and building something of value. Put your mind on your self-worth and esteem. Could it use a refresher course?

Can you use your talents to build your own business income? How do you spend your coins and dollars? Luxuries are not just for the wealthy. Taking loving pampering care of yourself has abundant value to your being, so spend less on mindless things, to put toward real value.  And speaking of value; values such as integrity, honesty, patience, forgiveness etc. are ruled by Taurus, so build them into your body, mind and spirit to feel more solid and secure.

Whereby New Moons build mostly over a two week period as the Moon grows bigger and bigger, thereby the energies we put forth grow for us, when Solar Eclipses occur with a New Moon, the expansion period is more than two weeks; in fact more like one to three years in the development of new destiny.

Hoping that you’ve learned some valuable things here regarding how to utilize New and Full Moons by the signs they occur in, and how powerful and long lasting eclipses are to us all, I’ll give you homework to practice how to use the May 24 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius.

Hint, Sag loves to learn and teach, expand their knowledge of truth and wisdom and have fun, so what traits would you want to eliminate as the date will begin allowing you to let go in the most effective way? Do your research, then enjoy the work. After all, it’s all about you taking more of a hand in your destiny.

Make a further inquiry about the distinctive qualities of Scorpio, Taurus and Sagittarius to empower your life. And keep an ear out as you will hear global news of endings and beginnings. Good news! In your personal world, you can closer shape your own news.
