Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius July 4/5, 2020


The next Full Moon is a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse happening in Sagittarius on July 5, 2020, at 4.29 am UTC in Purva Ashadha Nakshatra.
During a lunar eclipse, things might be a bit unsettled, so let us turn ourselves inward, do some spiritual practice, or if we have to go somewhere let us try to keep calm and be aware of the eclipse energy. We might not be affected personally, but people around us might be.
They say “Be careful what you wish for, lest it come true”. What does this really mean?
The voice in our head tries to convince us that we want so many things. I want this, I want that. I want to get a drink so I don’t care if I am in a crowded environment. I want to win the lotto. I want flashy designer bags/clothes. I want to date that gorgeous girl/boy. I want the people of (name a race, a country, a gender) to disappear as they make me uncomfortable. I want all that food/stuff/money only for myself. I want to throw rubbish in the sea because nobody is watching and I don’t care about the Earth. I want to talk badly about or hurt that person just because I don’t like him/her. If I am healthy, I don’t care what happens to other people.
There are good desires too. I want to study to have more wisdom and knowledge to improve myself. I want to help other people. I want to clean the beach. I want to listen to what this lonely person wants to say. I want to serve the community. I want to donate because I can.
What we think during this lunar eclipse until the New Moon in two weeks time is very important for our future. What do we really want? Will we get joy if that really happens? Will we get happiness and peace? The purity, the good quality of our thought now is crucial. We really have to be careful what we wish for so that we are aware of the Karma we are creating at this point in time.
Even if we smile externally, if we carry hate internally, we emanate the energy of hate.
Even if we are a bit awkward, if we carry love internally, we emanate the energy of love.
So let us be very aware of the energy we spread during this time. In which direction do we want to move to? Is there any hidden agenda? Is what we say as close as possible to what we really feel inside us?
The next New Moon happening on July 20/21 will be very important for us to move us towards the future. And the future will depend on what/how we formulate our wishes at the New Moon. With some effort, we can reach new heights. So before that, let us think about what we truly want at this time. Because it might come true and we want as little negative Karma as possible associated with our desires. Om Shanti.
