Now that I have all your attention I would like to welcome the first Lunar Eclipse of the year! (insert: applause)
Yes, it’s a time of change as we will also be enjoying (for lack of better words!) another Lunar Eclipse on May 25th and a Solar Eclipse on May 9th…let the party begin!
OK, now let’s get down to business. Can you feel the energy in the air brewing? Have you been feeling anxious and overwhelmed with your emotions the last couple days? Well, you are not alone and the reason for all this is that tomorrow, Thursday, April 25th brings with it a a full moon lunar eclipse that will be occurring at 5 degrees of Scorpio.
Before I go on I know that every Scorpio is thinking, that’s me, that’s me!! However, it’s important to note that we ALL have 5 degrees of Scorpio in our charts and many of us (even if we are not Scorpio Sun signs) have a planet at or near that degree. This is vital because those that do will be feeling the effects of change in their life and those who don’t… well, consider yourself lucky?? I guess it depends on how you deal with change…I’ll leave that one up to you.
Let me explain in a language that all can understand… Full Moons are a time of culmination. They bring about endings which also prompt new beginnings. When a full moon is combined with a lunar eclipse (AND aspects a planet in your natal chart) the outcome is dramatic change coupled with intense emotions. Now I know this might sound scary, however, change is not always negative. What eclipses do is speed up events in our physical world…it’s like being able to hop on a plane and get from here to Mars in a couple hours. Well….not exactly…but you know what I mean…
Also, for the simple fact that this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is occurring in Scorpio this one will be felt with your entire being….Scorpio’s motto: go deep or don’t go at all! Since Scorpio is about what’s hidden…what’s beneath the surface, don’t be surprised if things start bubbling over. This is healthy. Bring them up and let them go. This is an essential part of ascension and transforming into the life that you want.
Although the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse will occur on the 25th please be aware that energy does not have a definitive start and stop point. With this event the energy will always be most potent a few days before and after so give it until this weekend for things….ahem…your emotions to settle down a bit. Be kind with yourself and try to tap into the Taurus energy by remaining calm and balanced WITHIN so that no matter what changes the Universe brings upon you, you can trust that this is all part of the divine plan.
“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird:
it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg.
We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg.
We must be hatched or go bad.”
– C. S. Lewis
