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!
