The final eclipse in a series of three occurs 24 May at 9:24:55 PM PDT at 4 Sagittarius 08, with the only aspect a square to Neptune. Since a Lunar eclipse is a Full Moon, we would naturally look for the conclusion of something; in this instance, though, we have the energy of a T-square as the primary outlet, suggesting that any resolution realized will be funneled into Neptunian results, events, or will be met with a Neptune-focused consciousness. Whatever concludes for us will spur Neptunian expression of a kind that is most characteristic of our natal Neptune. That means that though we may intend to be creative, to do dream explorations, to begin a regular meditation practice, or to sleep a full 8 hours every night, for example, we may instead find ourselves chasing a recurring fantasy (Sagittarius related, so focused on an educational, religious, travel, reaching out/ publishing/ broadcasting or foreign influences/ destinations scenario, or in the matters of the natal House with Sag on the cusp), being lied to once again, confused, or back on the same creative or delusional path.

What we thought had ended a month ago (let’s call it our belief that something wasn’t possible) is now being faced as possible, with all the tribulations involved apparent. So, we were notified at the initial Lunar eclipse of this set that the dream really was possible, and now we are being shown the nitty-gritty of how to do it–that is, if we’ll only refuse to be caught in characteristic Neptunian ideas, escapes, or avoidances. The month since the initial eclipse has presented us with every potential conflict in relation to realizing that dream, symbolized by the T-square of Neptune to the eclipse axis. We are now, with this eclipse, seeing the end of the illusion: we see what it takes to reach our ‘impossible’ goal–which is to say, we are truly, at this time, equipped to pursue and achieve it.

The Sabian Symbol is ‘An Old Owl Sits Alone On The Branch Of A Large Tree’.  This draws my attention to Pallas, which happens to be body of latest degree at 27 Taurus 52, and which receives a conjunction from Mars. This suggests we look to the spot in the natal chart where the eclipse falls, or where Pallas transits, for the wisdom needed to act, even to fight, in order to pursue our dream.
