How Each Sign Should Celebrate Today's Historic Lunar Eclipse at 4:20
To celebrate the longest total lunar eclipse in a century, we compiled a list of the best weed strains for each sign to light up at 4:20 PM.
Friday's eclipse is the longest total lunar eclipse of the entire century and lucky for us, it arrives at exactly 4:20 PM! The eclipse is in Aquarius and Mercury is retrograde, meaning this eclipse will be begging us to look towards the future with innovation in mind, while Mercury encourages us to look back. Bumping into people from your past is likely today, but there’s one excellent way to avoid it: staying inside and getting high. Luckily, that’s exactly how Broadly’s astrologer Annabel Gat suggests we celebrate this rare lunar eclipse.
“During an eclipse, it's best to stay inside, rest, relax, meditate, and this eclipse has graciously decided to arrive on the East coast at 4:20 PM (so if you're on the West coast, you'll have to psychically tune into the 4:20 vibes three hours early),” she says. “I would advise against casting a spell during an eclipse, as the energies are wonky as hell, but a little ritual in our lives never hurt anyone.”
In honor of both the eclipse and its opportune arrival time, Gat has offered strain suggestions for each sign, not based on their traits, but instead on what will best equip them deal with the obstacles in their horoscopes this summer.
Your summer is all about people from your past resurfacing, which can no doubt be stressful. You’re also finding yourself in a new crowd, so you’re going to need a strain that’s great for socializing and puts your anxiety to rest.
