How This Lunar Eclipse Will Affect Your Zodiac Sign

Thu, May 12, 22

This Monday, May 16th, we’ll be treated to a total lunar eclipse in Scorpio – a stunning sight that comes with transformative energy for every sign. Keep reading for how this eclipse will affect your sign and how to harness this energy for your highest good.


Falling on Wednesday, October 6th this month’s new moon is in the balance-loving sign of Libra – the undisputed Queen of Harmony. Libra brings its effortlessly social, fun, calming energy to this lunar cycle - an uplifting, connection-building vibe that we all need more of right now!

Falling on Saturday March 13th, this month’s new moon falls in Pisces – the deep-feeling, almost psychic, intuitive of the zodiac. Pisces brings an imaginative, dreamy energy – a merging of heart and head, emotions and thoughts.

Like all new moons, now’s the perfect time to reset your energy, and love on yourself as a new lunar cycle begins. Think of as a reset – time to release anything holding you back, manifest what you want more in your life, and give yourself permission to just be. Keep reading for how the new moon can affect your mood, plus how to maximize the Pisces new moon energy. 

The first new moon of 2021 falls in the steadfast, tireless, goal-oriented sign of Capricorn. As a cardinal earth sign, Capricorn is the initiator of projects – always presenting groundbreaking new ideas, and working hard to bring them to fruition.

New Moons are a time for recharging, resetting, and planning for the month ahead. It’s a time of new beginnings and direction changes. With Capricorn in charge this month, we’re inspired to #makeithappen, achieve our goals, and lay the groundwork for our future.

Today’s new moon and total solar eclipse falls in Sagittarius – the charismatic trailblazer of the zodiac whose adventurous, infectious energy we all need more in our life. It’s the perfect sign to usher in a new year and gratefully wave goodbye to the #nothanks that’s been 2020.

As with every new moon, now’s the time to rest, recharge, and allow your energy to recalibrate as a new lunar cycle begins. You may feel disruptions to your sleep schedule and periods of low-energy – embrace these shifts and listen to your body’s signals. Take time to listen, receive, and plan for activity later in the month. The addition of a solar eclipse signals a turning point that shifts the direction of something important in your life.

How do we deal with the constantly changing moon energy? Connect with it! When we align our energy to the rhythms of the moon instead of fighting the natural celestial flow, everything seems to fall into place – it feels easy, natural, and meant-to-be. The lows don’t feel so low because we’re honoring what our spirit wants, and the highs feel higher because we’re ready for them when they come. Get ready for amazing coincidences and fateful synchronicities to become your everyday reality.
