SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON 2020 & LUNAR ECLIPSE FORECAST
Eclipse season has begun!
Now, this is no ordinary Full Moon (is there such a thing?!), this lunar peak is also an eclipse: A penumbral lunar eclipse, meaning that as she rises in the sky, the edge of our own, earthly shadow will fall across her surface.
Not as intense as the Cancer blood Moon that opened up 2020 (can you remember that far back!?), this eclipse offers a gentler and softer vibration. Her color will only fade a little, her intensity dampens just a jot. Yet speaking of a “gentler” eclipse is kind of like speaking of a “gentler” punch in the face. Eclipses ARE intense. However, they come to pass.
This Full Moon rises next week in Sagittarius. The sign of the centaur, his arrow is aimed straight at the truth. Sag is a quester, on a perpetual mission for deeper understanding. So this Moon (also called the Rose, or Strawberry Moon) comes at an interesting juncture in our collective story, when SO much is being revealed.
There’s Nowhere Left to Hide
The big-hitting astrology here at this Full Moon is a mutable T-square, involving no less than five planets. The Sun and Venus are together in Gemini opposing the Moon in Sagittarius. All squaring both Neptune and Mars sitting together in mystical Pisces. All this restless tension in the skies is adding to the atmosphere of disclosure, as secrets and lies can no longer be kept.
Sometimes bringing illusion and blurred boundaries, Neptune can be tricky at times. Yet here, the planet of dreams has the added penetrating power of Mars as its sidekick.
Mars and Neptune together brings a visionary outlook, plus the passion and power to eek out what wants to be spoken aloud.
What needs to be communicated in your life?
What’s remained unwritten for too long?
The Sun in Gemini calls for openness. The information you have just has to be scattered and shared. Venus, also in Gemini brings tact and charm. You will find ways to say what needs to be said. You will be heard.
LET Mutability Run the Show!
Right now, the astrology is heavily mutable. This means the Zodiac signs of change and adaptation (Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo and Pisces) hold planets that are activating this eclipse’s change-making impulse.
Over the past few months, we’ve all been adapting: At times frantically, at other times in sweet surrender. Yet all the time, this changing paradigm has been the guiding force.
Right now, we’re being called to be even more flexible. To not just respond to change, but to invite it in.
- Instead of clinging on tightly to the way things were, can you begin to imagine a different way?
- Instead of working to get things back to “normality”, can you start to forge a new path ahead?
Don’t Abandon the Rules
As this Full Moon rises, Sagittarius’ ruling planet – Jupiter is still conjunct Pluto. It’s not an exact conjunction (three of those occur in 2020 – on April 4, June 30, and Nov 12) yet it’s within 2 degrees. It’s enough to be strongly activated by this Moon. It means that as much as you may feel like throwing the baby out with the bathwater at this eclipse, don’t. With both planets in task-master Capricorn, the rules still apply.
YES, eclipses call for drastic action and usher in unexpected change. But Jupiter here is expanding the usefulness of all that work you’ve already done. We’re not finished with Capricorn yet, there’s much you can carry over with you into this new paradigm we’re building. The good stuff
- the roots
- the belonging
- the devotion to something greater than ourselves.
Mantras are a potent tool, for aligning with the energy of a Full Moon (or a New Moon). Use the following affirmation to remind yourself of how capable YOU are, of channeling this Moon’s mutable energy, and being the change the world needs to see.
“I lovingly let go of the old paradigm. I accept the change that is moving through me, and I willingly participate in all that is to come!”
Repeat the mantra daily. Use it all the way up to the third quarter, and even the next New Moon, to help release all that needs to leave your life.

5 Ways To Open Up to Change This Full/New Moon
1. Accept Your Feelings
Feelings always run high at the Full Moon. Add the shadowy element of an eclipse, and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Yet it’s important to accept your feelings – the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Let them flow. Fully feel. Accepting your emotions in their entirety, without judging, or trying to fix, will allow them to move through you, and not get caught up in details, that will likely pass.
2. Rise into your POWER
Change can be mightily disempowering. When it feels like you’re lacking control, unable to grasp hold of the situation, it can make you shrink. OR it can make you grow.
Eclipses coincide with change. And yes, facing the unknown is a scary place to be, yet understand that no change ushered in is for anything LESS than your highest good. So rise up into your power, and accept what’s coming with open arms.
3. Strengthen Your Solar Plexus Chakra
This chakra sits just below your ribs and is responsible for your sense of power, courage, and integrity. Eclipses are times when these parts of self maybe a little shaky. Working to consciously strengthen the solar plexus is a great way to build yourself up, so you’re ready to take on change!

4. Practice Giving
Full Moon energy is HIGH. This phase can feel frenetic, as there’s a lot of ungrounded, undirected energy. Channel some of it into giving. This may look like volunteering at a shelter, helping out a friend with some DIY, hosting an acquaintance who has nowhere else to stay.
Sagittarius is the Zodiac’s traveler. Turn this on its head, and make yourself available to host this adventurous energy.
5. Cleanse Yourself of the Old with a Full Moon Ritual Bath
Ritual baths are a powerful way to cleanse your whole energy field.
- Set an intention for release and surrender to change, as you run your bath.
- Sage, basil and (oh-so-decadent!) saffron are all herbs that align with Sagittarius, so add these to your water.
- As you wash your body, imagine that you are washing away heaviness and stuck patterns from your life.
