Here's What The May 26 Lunar Eclipse Means If You're An Air Sign

While NASA defines a lunar eclipse as the earth passing between the sun and the moon, blocking the light of the sun from reflecting off the moon and making the moon effectively disappear to those of us watching on Earth, those who follow astrology would discuss an eclipse in more spiritual terms. According to Allure, eclipses are "dynamic cosmic occurrences" that stimulate and activate the lunar nodes in our individual birth charts. Lunar nodes in our birth charts are the highest and lowest points of the moon's orbit when it crosses through our zodiac signs, and they are often called the "nodes of fate" by those who study the meanings of birth charts. They are symbolic of our past and future. Therefore, during eclipses, these nodes are said to be "activated," shining light on and channeling energy toward the heady topic of destiny.

So if you plan to watch the upcoming lunar eclipse of the full blood moon on May 26th (via Time and Date), it may also be worth looking into how this celestial event is likely to affect your zodiac sign so you know what to expect. If you are an air sign (Libra, Gemini, or Aquarius), here's what might be heading your way. 

Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius

According to The Sun, if you're a Gemini, people are in the mood to be giving and generous with you. They're moved to help you as you reach for your highest good and your own dreams and goals, so make sure you are putting yourself in the most advantageous position by presenting yourself in your best light. Take care of your physical health and appearance, polish up that resume, and focus on your goals with drive and positivity, and the help you need will appear.

If you are a Libra, this is an ideal time to speak your truth. If you have been holding something inside, this is the time to let it out. Whether it's standing up for yourself, leaving a job that isn't serving you, or confessing your love for someone, this is the time to let the truth reign. You will feel liberated and more in line with your highest self after you're spoken your piece.

Aquarius, this could be a good time for a new love interest to blossom. It's also an important time to focus on your health and well-being — if you have been feeling out of balance lately, prioritize your own wellness. It's also a good time to make sure you are feeling balanced at work — try to keep the peace with coworkers, but if you are feeling like your job is sucking the life out of you, consider how you can form a better work/life balance (via Jagran English).
