Current Lunar Cycle
A Lunar Eclipse opens a portal that offers a unique activation stemming from the power of the Full Moon. The portal releases a special cosmic gift resulting in a new ability you can use for inspired action in your life. The Eclipse portal will remain open until the Moon returns to 15° Libra on April 29.
The Full Moon illuminates and activates whatever was released with the manifesting wave of New Moon energy two weeks ago. In the coming two weeks look for ways to celebrate and take inspired action, especially from whatever you have embraced or experienced since the New Moon. Be patient with challenges that emerge in the coming days, recognizing that they are also a necessary part of your expansion.
Lunar Eclipse Astrology Article: A New Horizon for Personal Peace
A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is a special event in astrology. With the light of the Full Moon temporarily blocked, the Eclipse opens up a portal in the Zodiac at the exact degree in which the Eclipse occurs. In this open portal, or doorway, energies far beyond our solar system have direct access to Earth.
This week’s Eclipse is delivering a Cosmic Gift of Inner Calm and Alignment. There’s also an emphasis on relationships. Inner calm comes from the opportunity to receive additional help, support, and resources from your connections with others.
The Effects of Enormous Momentum
In addition to the special opportunity of the Eclipse, the momentum we are currently experiencing from our last New Moon is still active and operating in a very powerful manner. The main theme of this month is to use this push of momentum to recognize – or even create – new opportunities for yourself.
Despite the positive nature of the change, there is so much momentum that all of us need to be aware of the possibility of becoming overwhelmed and losing focus of the opportunities at hand. The overwhelm can be related to short term practical details, as well as your focus on long term goals and dreams.
The Full Moon Eclipse is offering the opportunity to get back on track.
You have the chance to regain your focus and clarity with an inner calm. The Eclipse offers stability and counteracts the urge to be overwhelmed by the magnitude of potential you may be feeling. There’s a new horizon of possibilities just ahead, especially if you can move forward with a sense of personal peace.
Getting Back on Track
There’s no denying the powerful momentum for change. In my last New Moon article I used the analogy of a surfer riding a giant wave. (See “Riding the Great Piscean Wave: New Moon Astrology March 2015.”)
If you’ve been challenged over the past two weeks, you might be asking, “What happens if I fall off the wave, or feel completely overwhelmed or disoriented and unfocused? Do I lose my ability to take advantage of all this momentum?”
The answer is NO. If you have ‘fallen off the wave’ all is not lost. Our Full Moon Eclipse directly addresses this important question, and then offers opportunities for getting back on track without a setback.
Transpersonal Peace and the Eclipse
The momentum you’re currently feeling can be small or large, but when you’re on track you’ll most likely feel it as a type of excitement or inspiration. You might be inspired by something you’re currently doing, or it could be something new that’s coming into your life. Either way, you feel the excitement just below the surface, like static electricity building up and ready to discharge at a moment’s notice.
Once you understand the excitement beneath the surface, a Libra Lunar Eclipse can manifest as a type of transpersonal peace. This is the Cosmic Gift of this Eclipse.
The inner calm offered by the Eclipse isn’t from withdrawal or lack of interest. It’s an inner confidence and knowing that life is headed in a positive direction. You trust the momentum. You don’t need to know the details and specifics of just how it will all play out in real time. Your centeredness will keep you focused on the right things. You also feel connected, and that these opportunities belong to everyone as humanity moves forward together.
The excitement is necessary because it connects you to others. It is a frequency stemming from Libra’s gift of relationship and the realization that this powerful energy wave you’re feeling is a group experience.
If you’re having trouble experiencing the positive, and tapping into this powerful wave of energy, then you should consider the possibility that you’re experiencing the zodiac phenomenon of “Libra boredom.” If you’re not feeling inspired by momentum and positive change, then perhaps you’re feeling bored – with life, or even humanity itself. The experience of boredom or lack of focus is a shadow or depletion aspect of the current potential for change. There may be a time and place for boredom, but this is not the month!
This current wave of momentum is toward solutions, new opportunity, and progress. The highest potential comes especially through groups or relationships. If you’re feeling bored or uninspired, then perhaps you are disconnected? This experience of inner withdrawal may stem from isolation. The result of feeling isolated is to feel uninspired, and to focus on problems rather than solutions.
With the Full Moon in Libra, the force of momentum lies within your relationship to others and to life.
You know you’re on track when you experience inner peace that goes beyond the personal (you) to encompass the transpersonal (beyond you). The feeling of peace and connection comes from participating in something beyond yourself.
In short, to maximize potential and ‘get back on the wave,’ you can turn your attention toward others, to individuals or even toward a group with which you resonate.
At the time of the Eclipse the Sun, Mercury, and Uranus are working together in a powerful way. Mercury and Uranus both support processes related to electricity. Mercury’s connection is through the mind and the synaptic focus necessary to learn. Uranus’ connection with electricity is at a quantum level. Combined together with the Sun, they have a tremendous effect on our nervous system and mental activity.
This electrical activation could be having an overload effect. Once you know what’s happening you can work with it positively.
This powerful activation of Sun, Mercury, and Uranus is combined into a fire grand trine with Jupiter and Saturn. This combination offers you the ability to reactivate the momentum of life and get back on track anytime you need to. You can’t lose your momentum unless you become detached – “bored” – with people and with life.
Libra always enables you to generate a new quality in all of your relationships with others. With the Eclipse in Libra, there’s additional special support to reconnect you with the energy of the group. Feeling overwhelmed is a natural response to the intensity in the momentum wave we are experiencing, but attuning yourself to group energy you’ll have the opportunity to experience relief and get back on track.
The shadow side of this Lunar Eclipse portal is boredom rooted in withdrawal and a backwards pull away from relationships. The opportunity is to move forward with a deep peace that is connecting you to life beyond your personal feelings. You have the opportunity this month to experience a new level of transpersonal peace through your connection to others.
This Lunar Eclipse is packed full of energy and momentum. You’ll feel the impact of the Eclipse for the next 29 days. It’s so powerful it may feel as if you’re surfing a huge wave. If you’re feeling overwhelmed or that you have fallen off the wave, it will be easy to begin again provided you are able to connect with others for support. It’s through your inner process of expanding all forms of relationships that you will reconnect with inspiration, and a renewed feeling of inner peace.
It is my deepest privilege to share these thoughts with you.
Have a wonderful Full Moon, month,
