mr smithForecast 5/25 The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse at 4° Sagittarius 8” occurs at 12:25 a.m. ET, although purported to be visually imperceptible it will nonetheless carry an energetic impact. This is the third eclipse in the series of 3 we’ve experienced this spring.

The overall tone may be one of confusion and an inability to give shape to a demand. You may feel as though you want to assert a cause or belief and yet no one responds to your call.

The Sabian Symbol** for the Sun is “A radical magazine”. Since the Sun is what puts light on the emotional story, we can see how the image of a publication that encourages dissent from the status quo is information to seed the ideal. Radical magazines operate on a shoestring, but the good ones stand out because of content and passion so the reader isn’t bothered by what they lack in presentation.

Personally, you can look at what may be stirring up inside of you. It may be an idea, or a belief. Whatever it is, if the eclipse triggers the impulse, you will feel a need to move at this time.

The symbol for the Moon is “An owl up in a tree”. This image conjures the bird of wisdom from a point of perspective. Owls are also birds of prey and incredible hunters. I recently discovered that birds are known to attack an unsuspecting human who is threatening their territory. So even though a human is a large animal, an owl will swoop and make a show of defense to protect its space.

Both symbols indicate calculated aggression. Full moons are times of completion, reevaluation and integration, but the eclipse opens a doorway that provides a flash of insight as to what means is possible to achieve the goal.

The way may not be at your disposal right now, because it may be obfuscated; not enough information has presented itself.

It is important to temper any impulse you may feel to act if you do not have all the pieces to the puzzle. Haste will indeed make waste and the best course is to write down an outline and evaluate where you are. Then step back and give it a long look.

** We are still in the process of understanding the Sabian symbols, which were channeled in 1925. The spiritualist astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, took Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant confined to a wheelchair to a San Diego park with a project. He put a symbol for each of the 360∞ of the zodiacal wheel on 360 cards. She proceeded to come up with visual phrases for each one of them. They were done in random order and they have a magic that is hard to decipher, yet feels totally right.
