Happy almost Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse! The Moon is Full in Libra at 8:05am eastern on Saturday, April 4.
The eclipse season of Spring 2015 has been a bit wild, although personally, I prefer it to the ominous Grand Cross of last year! Since our resident Astrologer, Mary Lomando, is still in Egypt, I gathered some links and tidbits to navigate the Full Blood Moon and Lunar Eclipse on April 4. Eclipses bring change, being powerful agents of bring and release cycles for people, events, patterns, and energy in our lives.
The upcoming Total Lunar Eclipse is at 14 degrees Libra and since Libra is ruled by Venus, look for recurring themes around relationships, partnerships, the “other”, balance, and harmony. Look for opportunities to reflect on the status of relationships in your life, subconscious patterns bubbling to the surface, and signs of what needs to be released.
As Luna becomes washed in a coppery red glow, we are called to sink into the blood wisdom of our bodies. What are the messages that Luna is whispering to you and through you? Reflect on the lunar messages of your body and how that informs how you present to the world.
The Full Moon of this April is called the Blood Moon due to the eclipse, but April Full Moons are also known as the Flower Moon, Frog Moon, Gray Goose Moon, Big Spring Moon, Sugar Maker Moon, and Melting Moon.
The Maiden Goddess of Spring will continue to mature and blossom through the month of April. Her youthful innocence gives way to a potent “knowing” of herself as a sexual being as we move into May. She reminds us that even in the face of turmoil, take time to pause, admire the flowers, and commune with Gaia. By standing in the full light of the sun, we release the shadows haunting us. Revel in the beauty within and without – take time to confirm the positive and acknowledge old, restrictive patterns that need to be purified. Gather under the Blood Moon with other women to dance, howl, and celebrate!
