Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius – June 5th, 2020

Penumbral Eclipse

We will have a trio of eclipses during the Spring/Summer 2020.  And, our first eclipse will begin on June 5th at 1:45 PM EDT.  This will be a penumbral lunar eclipse and will not be viewable from North America. Penumbral eclipses are usually hard to see, because it’s just the fringe of the Earth’s shadow crossing the Moon.

Lunar Eclipse will Agitate Venus and Mars

This eclipse will be at 15° 34′ Sagittarius. So, Sagittarians and Geminis will be the focus of this event. When I calculated the weight of this eclipse, it came out very low. But, it will be very close to an opposition to Venus in retrograde. And, it’s going to make a T-square to Mars in Pisces.

Eclipse June 5th, 2020

Venus retrograde is always difficult, because it doesn’t happen often. And, we are rarely prepared for it. Venus rules money and relationships. And her retrograde can upset partnerships and finances. With the eclipse so close to Venus, it’s possible it will amplify those money and love problems.

Mars is the warrior of the zodiac. Mars is presently traveling through Pisces along with Neptune. Some astrologers are saying that our present political unrest is a result of Mars and Neptune in Pisces. Neptune, the ruler of Pisces, is the great humanitarian of the zodiac. Mars aligning with Neptune in Pisces is encouraging people to look at the injustices in the world. Mars rules action, therefore many people are demonstrating at this time.

Eclipse Aligns in Trump’s Chart

Donald Trump was born on the day of a total lunar eclipse (a blood moon). And, Uranus was conjunct his natal Sun and opposing his natal Moon during his natal eclipse. Uranus is the electric planet. And being born under an eclipse at an opposition with Uranus is what give him his “shocking” personality. He’s not afraid to say things that some will find offensive.

Our present eclipse is at an opposition with Trump’s natal Uranus. It doesn’t quite reach his Sun or Moon — close, but close doesn’t count in transit astrology. I believe that this eclipse influenced his statement to the state governors telling them they were weak. And, they needed to dominate the Black Lives Matter protesters. I think the energy of the eclipse encouraged Donald Trump to threaten to use the military to end the protests, and to actually deploy the troops in Washington DC. At first I thought he was saying those things just to shock the world. But, now I wonder if the eclipse was causing his natal Uranus to shock him.

Eclipses Always Bring Changes

Eclipses bring changes and most of us don’t like unexpected changes. But, this eclipse is going to be fairly mild. So, we may be able to get past this with only a little interruption.

Two More Eclipses Ahead

We have two more eclipses coming before our eclipse season ends. And, the solar eclipse on June 21st is going to be a whopper. Also, the eclipse on July 5th is going to align with President Trumps natal sun, so it could bring national issues to the forefront.
