In pure scientific terms, a lunar eclipse may be described as the phenomenon when the Earth moves in between Sun and Moon and obstructs the sunlight reflected by the Lunar surface. However, in astrology, lunar eclipse has some deep impact on our zodiac signs.
The cosmic event activates the lunar nodes in our birth charts, as the moon glides across an elliptical that is constantly rotating around the zodiac. The highest and lowest points of this orbit correspond with the lunar nodes that appear in our birth charts as south and north nodes. These two nodes, also referred to as the Nodes of Fate, symbolize our past and future.
The first lunar eclipse of 2021 will occur on Wednesday, May 26.
