Lunar Eclipse March 25

Lunar Eclipse in Libra

March 25, 12:01 AM PDT – Lunar Eclipse at 5 Libra/Sun in Aries 

We are now in Eclipse season, when the full and new Moon become the Lunar and Solar Eclipse. At these times, many of us experience a greater impact on our feelings, and/or surprise occurrences that bring up issues, or open doors. The Eclipse season, consisting of both the Lunar and Solar eclipse, within 4 weeks, takes place twice a year, six months apart, as the new and full moon align with the lunar nodes. The nodes are the place that marks the exact alignment of the Sun, Moon, and Earth crossing each other’s path which results in eclipses. 

This lunar eclipse in Libra on the 25th, takes place next to the south node, rather than the north node, highlighting the experience of the past. Are there feelings, or situations, from the past that are activated? Is there some positive action we might take to clarify or resolve things? Perhaps there is a significant memory that catches our attention. This lunar eclipse trines Pluto giving us the impetus to let go and see from a new place, or to let go and move into new places, or perhaps to remember our ancestors and the gifts and wounds they passed to us.

This eclipse highlights the Aries Libra polarity. This pair of opposites brings our attention to our self in relation with others. What triggers us in relationship? What attracts us? How do we stay balanced between our needs and anothers needs? How deeply can we listen? What do we notice about our ability to be patient or impatience in relationship. Where are we co-dependent or giving our power away? where are we expecting others to fulfill our needs for connection to our deeper Self?

We might ask ourselves how do we allow beauty and calm presence to enter our lives (Libra) as compared to Aries energy rushing off to accomplish more doing.

During a lunar eclipse the shadow of the Earth fall on the Moon. How might we become more aware of our shadow qualities during this time?

April 1 – Mercury goes retrograde, 27 Aries and retrograding back to 15 Aries on April 25th when it goes directMercury retrograde period begins for the next 3 weeks. Everything that began from March 18th until now is up for review. The trickster is a foot, playing games with us so that we remember that we’re not in total control, teaching us to bend, listen, and collaborate with the presence of something greater than ourselves. Can we dance with the unexpected? Can we refine our words? Can we attend to thought patterns that are recurring and limit our potential?
