We are currently in a time between two eclipses.
A lunar eclipse on May 5th at 20 degrees Libra follows the April 19th solar eclipse in Aries.
The time between eclipses often shows unstable energy. Eclipses tend to bring changes. A solar eclipse can trigger energies that remain with us for a long time. However, the effects of a lunar eclipse are more immediate.
The day after the eclipse, Mercury went retrograde. Saturn, a planet governing accountability, has been closely aspecting the eclipse in Aries from his position in Aquarius. One manifestation of this eclipse is communications coming under examination.
Mercury in Aries exchanges signs with Mars transiting Gemini. This exchange further emphasizes communication since Gemini can also express the internet and communication.
One example of the eclipse's energy is that, shortly after the eclipse, Fox News made a record settlement in a Defamation lawsuit. More lawsuits are on the horizon for this big media company.
Tucker Carlson, a political talk show host at Fox News and one of the most popular talk show hosts in the United States, lost his work from one day to the next. The eclipse occurred very close to Tucker Carlson's debilitated Saturn in Aries. His Saturn is in his 10th house. The 10th house represents work and acknowledgment. A debilitated Saturn in the 10th house can potentially indicate a fall in status and reputation.
Another example of this energy is that, shortly before the eclipse, highly secret military documents appeared in the media. A leak was discovered. Public disclosure of confidential military records can potentially have severe consequences, causing harm to the reputation and the safety of the United States.
The lunar eclipse on May 5th has a similar planetary configuration as the recent solar eclipse: Jupiter and a retrograde Mercury are with Sun and Rahu in Aries.
However, the eclipsed Moon will now be in Libra. The symbol of Libra is a pair of scales representing law, balance, and justice. The lunar eclipse will continue to reveal more things.
The lunar eclipse takes place in the Vishaka nakshatra. Vishaka is sometimes called "the forked" or "two branched". Branches show variety and division. We may need to make a choice about which direction we are going.
Venus, which rules Libra, will enter Gemini on May 2nd. Both Gemini and Libra are air signs. Air signs are communicators and intellectuals and are often full of creative ideas.
Mercury turns direct in Aries on May 14th, which will help us to move forward with more clarity.
The last few days of May (26-31) will demonstrate a strong Guru Chandal Yoga. The Guru Chandal Yoga occurs when Jupiter and Rahu combine. Jupiter and Rahu are in a close conjunction near the degree where the eclipse occurred. They both conjunct at 8 degrees Aries for several days. This period may be tumultuous, especially since the conjunction occurs close to the degree where the solar eclipse took place on April 20th. The degrees around an eclipse are still charged for some time.
Jupiter wants to bring us the truth. His involvement in the eclipses of April and May reveals past manipulation and the need to bring truth to light.
What is Truth?
Truth is all-embracing.
Truth knows no barriers; it is, therefore, always kind.
Truth fosters harmony, never disharmony; unity, never disunity; universal respect, never judgement or intolerance.
Truth is ever beneficial; its rays heal, though they cauterize our imperfections.
Be wary of statements made in the name of truth, if they lack charity.
View sceptically such statements if they are self-serving.
Should anyone, moreover, claim unique possession of a truth, turn apart, and gaze up into the vast heavens:
For truth is expansive; its native land is Infinity.
Truth inspires joy in our souls even if we, in our human littleness, fear its liberating rays.
