Lunar eclipse in Gemini 30 November 2020 – curiouser and curiouser


It is eclipse season again and this full moon Penumbral lunar eclipse (see chart below) falls at 08° 37′ of Gemini on 30 November 2020 marking the beginning of the second and final eclipse season for 2020. The Sun is directly opposite the Moon at 08° 37′ of Sagittarius. It is exact at 8:43 pm in Sydney, Australia. Please adjust for your timezone. The eclipse will be visible from Australia, Europe, Asia, and North and South America. 

The full moon is a culmination, completion and closure phase, with an eclipse being an intensified Full Moon. Have a look at what house axis (below) the Full Moon falls in in your chart to see where there may need to be an ending, or what may be illuminated and/or coming to fruition for you. Eclipses are in effect for 6 months, so the resolution may eventuate anytime from 30 November 2020 until 26 May 2021 when we have a total lunar eclipse. 

With the eclipse rulers Mercury and Jupiter making a positive 60° sextile aspect we will be broadening our minds through being inquisitive, keen to discover the answers and to explore widely and learn. Adopt a broad vision, think big and plan your future.

Neptune is stationing direct and squares the Nodal Axis at the time of this eclipse. This is a time to tap into your spirituality through meditation and other esoteric practices, and to use your imagination to visualise and manifest your dreams and ideals. Let go of the comfortable past and dream a better future.

Anyone born with personal planets and angles at around 4 to 12 degrees of the Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) will be most affected by this eclipse. Eclipses come in pairs. The next lunation is a total solar eclipse on 14 December 2020 at 23°06′ of the sign of Sagittarius.
