I have to admit I groaned when I looked at the chart for the Lunar Eclipse at 14° 24′ Libra on 4 April 2015, 5:06 AM PDT. For those of us who have personal planets in the mid-degrees of the cardinal signs, this lunation hits us one more time with all the Uranus-Pluto square issues of the past year. To be sure, this is the last lunation where both Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn take part in the action. By the time the Sun is in Cancer, Uranus will have pulled far away from Pluto so we will be dealing with them one at a time. Nice change!
The Aries Sun is conjunct Uranus in Aries, the South Node with Mercury in Aries hanging on the edges. This stellium is squared by Pluto in Capricorn and opposes the Libra Moon-North Node combo. Once again we look to the North Node in Libra for the best ways to handle any conflicts that emerge, and with the Aries Stellium in total Uranus “my way or the highway” mode we will need to keep a cool head. Libra’s favorite tools are cooperation and compromise in order to find a solution that is fair for all parties. A lot depends on how willing the Powers That Be (Pluto in Capricorn) are to engage in some kind of dialogue. If anyone can get them to the table, it is Libra.
What won’t be very helpful is the semi-sextile from Neptune in Pisces to Mercury in Aries. In this case, Neptune may confuse matters more than bring a sense of compassion. Mercury in Aries is noted for leaping to conclusions and brushing shoulders with Uranus may make this much worse than usual.
I’m unsure whether or not Jupiter in magnanimous Leo forming harmonious aspects to both luminaries will provide support or cause mischief. This Jupiter is especially prone to exaggerating matters to draw attention and create the drama it thrives on. Mark that one a wait and see.
I do like having both Venus and Mars in matter of fact Taurus. Venus is unaspected and Mars is inconjunct Saturn in Sagittarius. What this says to me is neither is going to add more fuel to fire but rather encourage those who would rather focus their attention on more practical concerns to do so.
What we might experience on this Full Moon is a sense of been there, done that and have no desire to go back again. Some are simply exhausted and others may have come to the realization it is time to finally shut the door on the past for once and for all. Pluto’s scorched earth policy seldom leave much behind thus ensuring the only way to go is forward. Fire and air signs may want to continue fighting but earth and water folk are out of there. Time to move on!
Thanks for this post, Diane. this one is of interest to me, having ac 15′ Libra and Sun 23′ Libra and both my sons being rising Libras and husband Libra. I will definitely come back to read it again few times. Thanks.
I’m anxious about this one already, my mantra these days is no more battles. Scorched earth policy is exactly where I am at.
Thanks Diane – this post spells it all out so clearly.
I’M Libra Decan 3 so it will not hit me as hard. I’m also 23 degree Libra but I’m with the Earth and Water people, there are many things I want to close the door on, specically my job and the boss from hell.
yes, I’ve also said “not going back there again” talking about wholeness as in general rather than local. all I can say. Like
I see its symbol by degree solar fire is a “circle”. I was beforehand reading in Osho’s Book of secrets about the circle.
The masculine and feminine encircling dissolving into one or if the need is to bipass that then the jump. into wholeness. etc.
My neighbour hung a circle of hearts on her door at Valentines.
Hands around the world? Peace?
I’m also exhausted and just want out of where I stay and all it’s fights. I am earth and air and landlord is air. I tried re locating but it’s really not coming together – not enuf energy to overcome the barriers and feel short changed. No support.
No preparation. So interesting to hear I’m not alone –
You sure aren’t! Hang in there and quietly persist. Getting enough quality rest seems to be a critical factor with Uranus stirring the pot.
