When the Moon is eclipsed, the Earth's shadow comes between the Moon and the Sun, allowing what's been kept in the dark to come out and play.
Eclipses herald times of change, especially total eclipses. Tonight's lunar eclipse is a total eclipse, bringing new awareness to us so we can let go of old perceptions of ourselves and others. (Aries/Libra) Look for life-changing shifts in consciousness that provide opportunities to complete major life lessons, which give you the freedom to move on to the next level of your life’s purpose.
This full Moon lunar eclipse is hard-wired to the on-going Pluto/Uranus square. Now, we are experiencing how we are personally (Sun/Moon) involved in this ongoing revolution. This Libra Sun is joined by Venus and the asteroid Pallas Athene, as well as the Libra North Node, directing our evolution toward greater understanding, love and balance. While the Sun travels through the sign of Libra, our consciousness (Sun) turns toward balance, harmony and social relationships. Libra is the sign of justice and cooperation. Along with Libra’s ruler Venus energizing her wisdom and love within us, Pallas Athene in Libra strategizes how to reconcile opposites—whether masculine/feminine, light/dark—to harmonize and integrate polarities. She does this through Aphrodite/Venus' energy of connection and love.
