Claim Courage, Clear Insecurities
We do not always see the signs that we are “on the path” – sometimes we are meant to trust even when we do not see or feel the answers. That is what this eclipse is here to let us practice.

Eclipses in Vedic Astrology
In vedic astrology, we do not suggest watching a total lunar eclipse. Instead, it is recommended to be meditating or finding quiet during an eclipse and spending time indoors. Since the eclipse begins at 2:30am Pacific Time and peaks at 4:11am Pacific Time, it will be a perfect time to wake early and meditate, say mantra, and/or sing japa.
Heads Up! Mercury will begin retrograding in Gemini on May 29 and then will return to Taurus.
I reminded the Conscious Calendar Annual Members about this at the end of April so they could get full use of May before the energy turned inward. It is a ripe time to shed layers and discover self-love even if you are struggling.
