Moon over Earth Eclipse

  One part of our life speeds up while another slows down or comes to a halt this week, as we head towards a Lunar Eclipse in Libra on April 4th. Communications speed up on Monday, March 30th. Be careful not to speak first and then think later.

  On Monday, communications planet Mercury moves into Aries until April 14th. “Don’t drive too fast” is the practical advice, and think before you impulsively speak. The higher level of this energy is to communicate right action, but remember that others can be right too.

Tuesday brings a moderate slowdown. You may feel less energetic, logy, or just plain exhausted. Although you may feel a bit stubborn this week, the quality for good, persistent, and thorough work, so get busy over the next six weeks, and focus about getting what you want. It’s time to accomplish practical goals now.

The lunar eclipse on April 4th is in Libra, and exactly opposite the Aries lunar eclipse last October. That means you get the bookend opposite perspective on balancing relationship and individuality needs. After you have both perspectives, you make choices as to what and who is best for your life. If you are hanging on to negative relationships, it’s time to make a change.

The Full Moon Eclipse in Libra over the Easter and Passover weekend is one that is prime for nighttime viewing. It can be seen all over the world, Western North America, the Pacific Islands, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. Unfortunately this celestial activity makes some disturbing aspects with Uranus and Pluto, a T square. You might want to plan for the best, expect the worst, and then allow yourself to be surprised.

The unusual combination of an eclipse and T square off with some seriously difficult planets effects our emotional balance. This transformative cycle gives us the opportunity to look at the cycle of life and death, and regeneration from three different perspectives; Christian, Jewish and Astrological.

Take heart because next week, expansive Jupiter in Leo ends his retrograde cycle that started last December, so you get to start moving on projects that were stalled over the winter.
