In pure scientific terms, a lunar eclipse can be described as an event when the Earth moves between the Sun and the Moon and obstructs the sunlight reflected by the lunar surface. However, in astrology, lunar eclipse has some profound effect on our zodiac signs.
The cosmic event activates the lunar nodes in our birth chart, as the moon rotates in an elliptical that rotates continuously around the zodiac. The highest and lowest points of this orbit correspond to the lunar nodes that appear in our birth chart as the south and north nodes. These two nodes, also known as the Node of Fate, symbolize our past and future.
The first lunar eclipse of 2021 will take place on Wednesday, 26 May.
