A Lunar Eclipse sounds dramatic – but in fact, there are at least two every year, and there can be as many as five in one year.
Not all Lunar Eclipses are total eclipses, where we see a beautiful red-orange Moon, but all are significant astrologically speaking.
Lunar Eclipses are a type of Full Moon, and they carry much of the same meaning as a Full Moon, but with added emotional potency.
Often, a Lunar Eclipse is associated with an ending, although it’s important to remember that every ending is by default also a new beginning.
When it falls in Gemini, the Lunar Eclipse temporarily stills and quietens the butterfly-like capriciousness of Gemini as a zodiac energy.
Instead of flitting from one thing to another, we are forced to focus on whatever the moment of crisis is. Instead of chatting, playing and laughing, we must instead take life seriously for a moment.
Technically, a Lunar Eclipse, like a Full Moon, is an opposition of the Sun and Moon – therefore there is an inherent tension in the energy which builds through this opposition.
When the Lunar Eclipse is in Gemini, the Sun lies in opposing Sagittarius. This gives us a clue as to how we can manage any emotional crisis the Lunar Eclipse does bring.
Where the Moon in Gemini has a short attention span and is interested only in the moment, the Sun in Sagittarius urges us to look at the bigger picture.
To best handle an event associated with the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini, we need to set it into a wider context, which involves understanding how we got here, and why.
Whatever the eclipse brings to you, try not to react, or overreact, impulsively. Instead, mull over what has led to this, because in discovering that you will find valuable answers about where to head next.
Horoscopes: What Does the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini Mean for Each Sun Sign?
Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini
Prepare for your daily routine to get a shakeup during this Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon, Aries. Schedules you have taken for granted are about to be changed, possibly at very short notice.
This will throw life into some confusion or chaos, but it could turn out to be a blessing in disguise – it does, after all, give you a get out of jail card for activities you would rather not do and it could bring an end to things you have grown out of.
Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini
A Lunar Eclipse in your finance zone could signal some shocking news regarding a debt or your income, Taurus.
Don’t panic – there is more to this than meets the eye and once you have had a chance to digest the news, you’ll discover that it’s not as bad as you feared. Look to your hidden skillset and your under-used talents to help create extra income to tide you over.
Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini
Your occasionally fickle Gemini nature may come back to haunt you when the Lunar Eclipse occurs in your own sign, Gemini. Expect some issues in a relationship or friendship, where someone has been hurt by your lack of attention.
Alternatively, you may find yourself being excluded or overlooked where you would normally have received attention. Not fun either, but not entirely unexpected.
Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini
Emotional overwhelm is a possibility during this Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon, Cancer, and you may simply have to take some time out before you burn out. You may feel exceptionally emotional and be moved to tears for no apparent reason.
Retreat if you can and surround yourself with those who love you the most. You’ll be fine, but you’re undoubtedly feeling a little fragile right now.
Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 22) During the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini
Friendships are tested during this Lunar Eclipse and you may be disappointed in someone you previously trusted.
However, ask yourself if you’re judging them unfairly – or whether, perhaps, you had a part to play in this breakdown yourself. It need not be the end of the road if you don’t want it to be, Leo, but you’ll need to be scrupulously honest to salvage this.
Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 23 – September 22) During the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini
A Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon in your career zone can signal some shocks at work – but these are equally likely to be good shocks as unpleasant ones. You may find yourself forced to take on extra responsibility or to lead at a time of crisis.
Although daunting, this is actually an opportunity to shine, Virgo. Hold your nerve and get on with your job. You’ve got this, and your contribution will be remembered.
Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 23 – October 22) During the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini
A feeling of boredom or restlessness could lead to a very impulsive decision around the time of the Lunar Eclipse, Libra.
It’s fine to take a leap of faith but do make sure that you consider everyone else who is involved too – for example, don’t make major decisions about your family life without consulting your loved ones.
Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini
Don’t be surprised if you feel a little unsafe or insecure around the time of the Lunar Eclipse, Scorpio. Pay attention to your personal security by checking locks and smoke alarms – that kind of thing.

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini
The Lunar Eclipse occurs in your love zone, Sagittarius, and your love life is clearly the main area where you could face some drama.
It’s a good time for grand gestures, provided you’ve planned them. Risky behavior or spontaneous decisions don’t work well right now – in fact, you may be accused of being irresponsible. Try to balance your love of adventure with a need to be a grown up.
Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 19) During the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini
The Lunar Eclipse highlights your health and well-being, Capricorn; if you’ve neglected this area recently, you can expect a wake-up call now.
This is a blessing, as it gives you a chance to address your mental or physical health before it deteriorates. Get a check-up, follow medical advice, seek therapy – whatever it takes to ensure that your wellness is a top priority.
Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 20 – February 17) During the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini
Watch out for some very reckless impulses around the time of the Lunar Eclipse, Aquarius. You’ll be tempted to do something either extraordinarily brave or extraordinarily foolish, depending on how you look at it!
For a safer way to get some adrenaline into your life, consider trying out an extreme sport or booking a thrill-packed vacation.
Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini
Family drama is highlighted by the Lunar Eclipse, Pisces, but it needn’t escalate out of control. Step in early if you can and insist that everyone behave respectfully.
Healthy argument is good, as it allows people to vent emotions; it may even do the family some good. Now is not the time to suppress emotions, but with feelings running high it’s also necessary to keep some semblance of order.
