Libra Lunar Eclipse

3 Apr

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on April 4th could be a difficult one.  Luna finds herself at odds with the ongoing square between Uranus and Pluto.  Although just a few weeks ago did we see the last of seven squares between these two Cosmic Heavy Weights, (they’ve been at odds since 2012!) this eclipse illuminates these energies and reminds us that we are not yet “out of the woods”. In fact, this eclipse hovers close to some of the points of the Cardinal Grand Cross of last April. So you may see remnants of issues that surfaced then. Hopefully this marks a culmination to the lessons we were to learn during these last few years of intense change.  This Eclipse falls at 14’24” Libra indicating that we need to strike a balance between self-assertion and compromise, the need to act in our own best interests vs the need to relate to another.  What can happen is hard to say especially with Uranus conjunct the Sun and opposite the Moon at this time.  Expect the unexpected.  That doesn’t mean that we should be fearful.  A lot depends on where things have been heading for you during these last few years.  If you know your chart, you can check and see if you have any planets or angles within a couple degrees of 14 degrees of any Cardinal sign since those signs will feel the most stress (Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn).  Libra is the relationship sign but with Uranus in Aries opposite this Libra Lunar Eclipse, there is an urge to assert individuality and uniqueness; or a need to break free so cooperation, negotiations or coming to some kind of agreement could be difficult to say the least.  It could be that there is an opponent or someone or something acting counter to your interest that shows up quite suddenly and surprisingly.  Venus is the ruler of this eclipse but makes no major aspects during this time, giving the goddess of beauty, love, relationships, peace and harmony a bit of a ‘wild horse’ energy.  Jupiter is in a favorable alignment with this Eclipse which could be a protective influence or it could just make the issue larger than life.  With Jupiter involved, there could be legal issues, opportunities for travel, or even to learn something new and out of the ordinary and these opportunities and situations may come seemingly out of the blue.  There could be issues involving fairness, ethics, the law, our own personal truth, “right and wrong” as well as religious or spiritual beliefs that could also surface at this time. A good example may be the new law passed in Arkansas that allows a business to deny service to same sex couples due to religious beliefs. This is sparking much debate and outrage throughout several states.

Either way it appears this Eclipse could bring in some big changes for better or worse. At this time it is best to be flexible and open.  If you can avoid or delay major decisions, that may be best as the situation could be very changeable.

August 20 Full Moon in Aquarius

20 Aug

The Full Moon August 20 is at 28’11 Aquarius where the Sabian Symbol is “A butterfly emerging from the chrysalis”. 

At the time of this Full Moon in Aquarius, Jupiter is closing in on a square to Uranus.  Uranus is the ruler of this Aquarius Full Moon and upping the ante on the unexpected factor.  This is also somewhat of an ‘astrological blue moon’ since this is the second Full Moon in the sign of Aquarius. Jupiter entered the ‘zone’ of the much talked about Uranus/ Pluto square back on August 7th where Jupiter opposed Pluto.  Jupiter increases everything it touches so it’s been magnifying the unstable and volatile nature of this energy pattern.  The Volcanic eruption in Japan on Sunday is an example of this energy and it was also said to be the highest volcanic plume ever recorded for this volcano.  We see the influence of Jupiter in the mix amplifying the volatility.  We can even see this with the escalating violence and upheaval in Egypt in the last couple of weeks.  The powerful energies of these outer planets define and shape a generation. What this means to you will depend largely on your own natal chart.  You could ask yourself where you may have experienced sudden changes and upheaval in your own life. What seems to be cropping up in your own life? Things might get crazy at this Full Moon. It is possible that things come to a head at this Full Moon while leading to the emergence of something new as the Sabian Symbol suggests.   Though these upcoming changes are unsettling, in many cases they are needed and even welcomed. 

This Full Moon makes an opposition to a Mercury/Ceres conjunction in Leo where communicating creative thoughts and ideas create self-esteem and self- worth.  We have a need to nurture and take pride in our creative side.  Children and children’s issues in regard to learning and education are highlighted at this time as well. It could be that you are registering your child in school for the first time, or your child could be changing schools, or there could be a change at the school or with the school itself.  For example: a new principal, new teacher or faculty, or a new location due to a school closing, etc.  Since it is now “back to school” time, we’ll encounter these issues as usual during this time but it’s becoming more apparent that our educational system is yet another crumbling structure within our society.  The Uranus/Pluto square in effect until 2015 is showing us what doesn’t and isn’t working any longer and where changes need to be implemented, often by force since on some levels we’re refusing to budge.
