Eclipse season is coming this April along with that amazingly rare Cardinal Grand Cross so i thought i would do a refresher on what they mean and how it effects us energy wise. Note that Eclipses can be felt up to 3 months in advance or very subtle up to a year in advance. No wonder we’ve all been feeling these shifts lately, who wants to bet the eclipse coming up is to blame?
What i find beautiful is that the Lunar eclipse is all about Yin energy(feminine), which is all about emotions and inwardly focused while Solar eclipses are more yang(masculine) energy, outer focused and motivating. Both of these eclipse come together in a unification of balance. It’s a HUGE transformation and transitional window. They bring in CHANGE, unstoppable forces and NEW BEGINNINGS. If you will, they usher in an ending of the chapter which is quite symbolic considering we just entered into the vernal equinox late March and we are also heading for more dynamic energy currents as this gateway opens during the Cardinal Grand Cross.
“You should start noticing the energies of an upcoming eclipse right after the previous new or full moon. Emotional truths can be revealed and emotions can run rampant. All signs will be viewing life from a different perspective during this time.
All signs will take things personally during this phase. Deep feelings can come to the surface unexpectedly. This blocked and ambiguous energy will intensify until the actual eclipse date and will resume to normalcy after about three to four days of the eclipse date. It’s best to plan in advance for the eclipse since our natural rhythms are out of order during this time.”
~So let’s break what each of them mean and how the energy effects us
“A Lunar Eclipse occurs during a full moon when the earth moves exactly between the sun and moon, breaking up their natural monthly opposition. Normally the earth is not on a level plane; otherwise eclipses would occur every month. During a lunar eclipse the earth "short circuits” the connection between the sun and moon. The effect on us can be confusion or clarity. “
On April 15th 2014 the first of two lunar eclipses in 2014. This eclipse will occur as the moon passes in front of the constellation Libra at 25 degrees at exactly 3:42am and is in exact alignment with the Earth moving opposite the Moon in front of the constellation of Aries at 25 degrees. It will be visible over east Australia, the pacific and North and South America.
A lunar eclipse emphasizes the completionof something. This lunar eclipse is in peaceful Libra- the natural ruler of the 7th house which rules partnerships. It gives a chance to reorient yourself into change. An eclipse involves three bodies the sun, moon and earth representing a triangle situation(triad of energy) in your life where one person loses out allowing another person to take advantage. Often one door has to shut before a new one can be opened. Many will experience an ending and a new beginning in one or more areas of your life.
Keep in mind, all lunar eclipses are powerful Full Moons that are "course correctors’ and are meant to change your life often in a way that could be completely unexpected. This lunar eclipse emphasizes the need to work with others and demands some degree of compromise. You can discover alternative ways to make life work instead of acting as if there’s only one road. Beliefs may not hold up in the face of changing that requite flexibility instead of certainty. As the Earth’s Shadow cross the Moo, we must remember that is is the unification of the opposing forces that create life: Sun and Moon, light and dark masculine and feminine. A lunar eclipse emphasizes this emotional reaction.
Psychic sensitivity, spiritual instincts, and emotioanl connectedness are aroused as environment becomes a little unstable. This unstable environmment occurs because there is change in the electromagnetic energy that affects us mentally and neurologically. There will be some stress as blockages will begin to crumble( the feeling of resistance will also be present) and there will be a feeling of freedom. The good news is that creative and artistic qualities will be discovered as you let go of beliefs that don’t correspond with you current reality! A New you emerges! Keep in mind that all of this is good and part of the pattern of GROWTH as you take on a proactive approach to lving. You will finally drum up the courage to make necessary life corrections Enjoy 🙂

A Solar Eclipse is when the moon is exactly between the sun and the earth and bocks the light of the sun from the earth. A portion of the complete disc of the sun(as viewed from the earth is temporarily shadowed. It is as if the shadow is blocking out the flow of the sun’s energy to the Earth. Solar eclipses are very powerful New Moons and are known to herald significant endings and beginnings. A metamorphosis is beginning to take hold and if you are in direct alignment with this eclipse your life will change forever in magnificent ways(whether you like it or not 😉 )
Events that are triggered by an eclipse usually take six months to unfold so you can expect this process of change to continue as you begin to feel like a flower opening it’s petals. Special opportunites to break old patterns become apparent as you begin to make major changes in your life. The solar eclipse on April 29th 2014 will occur at 2:14am at 8 degrees 52’ Taurus. All Taurus sun sign people will be most affected by this solar eclipse as will those with Taurus rising. If you are a scorpio or have scorpio rising you will feel this eclipse more strongly than most because in our sky the constellation of Taurus is opposite the constellation of Taurus and is in direct alignment with this eclipse. Overall you will find yourself redoing your life from your toes to the top of your head and your appearance will be changed radically as you enhance your image to reflect the massive changes going on within you( ascension symptoms anyone? 🙂 ) Eclipses are about endings and beginnings. Ultimately the changes in how you see yourself will affect how you’re perceived by others thereby affecting all of your relationships both personal and business. This is all good as you review your life, let go of past aspirations recommit to what works and plant seeds in a new garden of personal goals.
Life tends to speed up near eclipses and awareness increases. Depending on the part of your chart that is activated we can determine exactly what part of your life will be most affected. If you are a taurus almost every part of your life will be affecte, but all of us will feel a shift of some sort coming on…With any eclipse what is hidden will come to light and your secret desires may not be secret anymore. You may break away from a relationship that no longer suits your needs or you may be face with changes beyond your control. The six months after an eclipse will give you the time to sort through feeling and explore other options. Events occuring near an eclipse take on the added attribute of being unpredictable or fate.
Remember CHANGE IS GOOD. Change in thought, manner, speech, dress, lifestyle, health, career, family, expectations and goals are all part of the plan and the process of you creating a more fulfilling life. An eclipse is like a red light as it indicates that there are things that one doesn’t know about that throws your life out of focus. You may feel uncomfortable as you let go of what is familiar and you step way outside your boundaries to make room in your head and your heart for new ideas and ultimately a new lifestyles.
here is just the basics, I’m sure there will be more detailed reports as we get closer to the date, Enjoy 🙂
