The full moon/lunar eclipse is at 14 degrees Libra and occurs April 4, at 8:05 A.M., EST.
Libra rules the seventh house of marriage, partnerships of all types, courts and those considered, ‘open enemies.’ The planetary ruler of Libra is Venus.
For some of us, this eclipse will test the strength and validity of some of our most important relationships and they will become stronger or end. Libra is the sign most concerned with balance and harmony, but balance will be lacking in many respects. The result can be chaos and upheaval or deep seated transformation that change your course. That which falls away at this time was meant to fall away, and this is perhaps the most important aspect of this full moon/eclipse. Events connected to the eclipse will occur before the actual eclipse arrives.
A lunar eclipse is a time of change, endings and beginnings. The results are not always tied to actions or previous intent, but it brings with it enlightenment about the truth, and at times additional information is revealed. These changes can be drastic and connected with major endings of all types, or more simple, as in the case of a personal epiphany about something of significance that changes our course or gives us added information that becomes important.
This eclipse opposes Uranus, squares Pluto and sets off the Uranus-Pluto square making events that occur large in the world, and our own lives if it aspects your personal planets in your own natal chart.
This eclipse is all about relationships and partnerships of all types. Relationships, especially romantic ones will be front and center, but any other type of relationship could be affected as well-that could include work, friendships, business associations or any other relationship.
The Moon opposes Uranus and we can expect unexpected events to occur. Moon-Uranus transits are associated with freedom, and sudden breaks or changes that seem to come out of the blue. Most of the time however, tension has been building for some time, and this is a sudden release in a great burst of disruptive energy that may appear to come out of nowhere.
The square to Pluto represents power struggles, and deep seated issues around sex, control and other buried personal issues and baggage. Jealousy, revenge, resentment, anger and other highly charged emotions can occur, and at times Pluto can signify the death or ending of a situation. Pluto rules death and regeneration, sex, control, manipulation, guilt and at times violence. There is nothing light and airy about Pluto. Previously hidden issues can come out during this time and be confronted.
Some relationships will end, but the square to Pluto can at times have a transformational affect, allowing us to work through our issues and some will have an ah ha moment and a desire to transform the situation into something better and stronger. Or we can suddenly realize something that changes our mind about a situation forever.
Relationships that are healthy may go through this period with little trouble, especially if this eclipse does not aspect your chart in a hard manner, but relationships that are uncommitted, troubled, new, uncertain and on and off or continually troubled will be more likely to end at this time.
The effects of this eclipse will be strong for a number of days. April 5 the Sun squares Pluto at 16 degrees of Aries-Capricorn setting off the Uranus-Pluto square. Sun-Pluto transits can bring compulsiveness, power struggles, control issues, issues around sex, joint finances and other important issues that can seem to concern life and death. It is best not to get too wrapped up in this energy in a negative way, but rather and search for the truth however difficult it may be to accept and move forward in a positive manner based on the new information.
April 6, the Sun conjuncts Uranus and we, or others can be prone to sudden and unexpected actions. We could hear or experience something unexpected, or be on the receiving end of such actions coming from someone else. We could experience other individuals as erratic, unpredictable and lacking in stability or we could feel this way. Edginess and irritation are common. Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water.
My advice is to leave for another day major issues in any type of relationship, if possible. If you push someone to far, they may be pushed right out of your life, or you may feel this way. Either way, if this is the case, the Uranus-Pluto square is probably hitting your chart and it is time for change. Change is easiest for those who are able to gracefully accept it, and look forward to a brighter future. When one door closes, it only means another one will soon open. And the next door you walk through might be the best path for you, after all.
