Is your life balanced? If not, where could use a pair of scales to weigh it all up? Pros v Cons. Relationships of all kinds come under the radar of this particular Eclipse, of course. Sometimes, one is giving more than the other. Sometimes the willingness to resolve conflicts halts all progress. Is your life balanced? If not, where could use a pair of scales to measure the PROS v CONS. On the North Node, this Eclipse is a signifier that NEW Relationships are possible along with the RENEWED ties and vows between those already involved. And yes, for some the Lunar Eclipse could portend a separation - but only if all other avenues have been exhausted, or it's right for the karmic evolution of both parties. You're not alone - in fact, others no doubt are going through the same issues You are. You just can't see them. But this Eclipse may flush them out from whence they hide. Could you do with some new allies to walk with you?
* This background theme last for the next 6 months *
If you become to obsessed over Where you are going, What you "should" be doing, and whether your career path (or lack thereof) is worthwhile you'll be yanked down by this Eclipse to focus where it truly matters now - close to home and to all those who YOU consider family. Changes in where you live, who lives with you, shifts in family interactions all are marked for the next six months. It's a blessing, sometimes in disguise. You're being moved from a self-absorbed worry over ME and where *I*am going and back to the "WE" that can sustain you away from the hustle and bustle of the busy world outside. Inject more calm, peaceful stillness into your nest (or music and art!) and you'll find just what you need. If you're not at peace, you're not at home. See Cycle 4 in Surfing for more. Sometimes it's an inner job, and sometimes a change of scenery is all it takes.
You go on forever in your own world, creating your life as you see fit. Having fun on your lonesome, crafting creative wonders all with your very own hands. Only it won't be as fulfilling as you think now that the Lunar Eclipse comes to overshadow all you do alone, and reminds you that you're not fully alive if you're not connected to others. Check out a local Meetup group. Go to the Swap Meat. Find a flea market/car boot sale (for my UK readers!) Grab a paper and see which groups, meetings or gatherings are nearby. And go. The reality is, you've outgrown the small (but fun) world you've created for yourself but you need allies of like-mind for the next stretch. Many of you are without a solid social circle, but it's effort that counts. You're the friendliest sign, who can talk to anyone. So do that now. The support you will receive from friends (or strangers yet-to-become) will astound you.
Quieten your analytical, discriminating mind for a moment and allow this Lunar Eclipse to recalibrate your sights on regaining a balanced sense of self-worth, a gentle self-acceptance and the building of yourself as you would a business or creative project....instead of getting caught up in ego-struggles that seem endless. Part of you could be addicted to the "high" of fighting front line with big emotional issues, but ultimately the quieter life is for you. When what is given has strings, you'll either have to dance like a puppet or find ways to manifest on your own. You're more able than most to make ends meet by pooling talents, skills and ideas. Scour for new allies to help you earn money (team efforts pay off) and put down roots in calmer soil.The harsh issues ease when it's not just you tackling them.
Your search for greener pastures, new towns, cities, exotic locales, skyscrapers or palm trees, mountain woods or city sprawl or desert oasis, you seem to be firmly committed to growing,expanding beyond the confines of a life that has become sort of boring, shall we say? If that's too harsh, you're just on the lookout for more knowledge and life experience. Better? Well, the Eclipse this week kicks off a 6 months period where what you really need is Right Before You. That doesn't mean you can't get lost in a great book, movie or conversation - in fact these are bound to happen, and with more frequency - it means you will find greater peace if you work on what is going on in your own skull. It's time for Mental Peace. No more disputes over beliefs, righteousness over what is "right" or "wrong". Just quiet acceptance and lots of laughs.
Your mind has been ready for war for some time now. In fact, you've come at logger-heads with a number of people, in your quest to have YOUR say. At times, it's been a victory for your sense of self, but other times it's been a drain because sometimes people just won't listen, hear you out or even acknowledge your point. The Lunar Eclipse is a call to Adventure for all Aquarians. Perhaps what you seek is no longer in the redundant setting of your regular surroundings. Maybe, just maybe a day-trip to another town, village,city or continent will bring not only more Love to you but more Peace. This is the promise of this Eclipse. The next six months (if you can't physically get away)is great for further learning, higher education, taking classes etc. Tip: Put a map of the world up. And be inspired.
What's the point of speaking if no one is listening? What's the use of pursuing your personal independence if, at the end of the day, you have no one to share your adventures with? Not every Ram is coupled but this Eclipse urges you to RELATE to others more, or better, or more often. With so much bottled up inside of you, so much you're chewing over mentally, so much of your past you're trying to either run from or understand, you may not feel the urge or have the time to bring others in. Some of you may be ready to push someone OUT. But relationships matter and you could use an aide or an ally to foster growth and keep you from becoming your own worst enemy. The mirror holds nothing, unless it's the reflection you see of yourself, within the eyes of another, romantic or otherwise.
If we peaked into your home space (or psychic inner space) we'd find alarms and weapons of all kinds. As if you were a survivalist preparing for war, (or knee deep in flyers ready to launch some personal campaign). Many of you have been spending time alone, holed away in your nest. And quite happy. Many of you have already felt the tug of boredom or the desire for something new. Not even a solid traditional sign such as yourself is immune. If anything, you're pulled into bigger events due to the Uranus/Pluto alignment. Now, an Eclipse in Cycle 10 pulls you out of your shell to prove what you are willing to do in the name of Love, in the name of Fairness, in the name of Justice and/or in the name of Peace. Angry emotions and reactions no longer serve. Now, become the peaceful warrior and set an example. The world - and the worlds beyond are watching...
The Lunar Eclipse in your sign heralds a six month period where YOU are the central player surrounded by THEM, whoever they are. Everyone else comes secondary. Whereas you may have fought to keep certain partners around in the past, conflict is not your way ahead. The Lunar North Node of Humanity's Karmic Destiny lies in your own sign - the sign of beauty, relating, compromise & cooperation and Peace. You carry the seeds of all these things within you, but if you've lost track of them because other people are pulling you into their own dramas (or self-focused needs) you may feel the urge to fly off solo, something unusual for you. All Libras are picking up the threads of their old selves, only to discover you're stronger than ever. Resilient. Peaceful yet able to confront to clear the air. Focus on You now. And the "right" people will accept and champion that.
You've either tried to fit INTO society by carving your own independent way, or else you've found yourself fighting it at every turn. Some twins have sworn off friendship as something that exists purely on text messages every now and then. Others of you are fighting to keep the friends you have and possibly wondering why you have to fight at all (or why no one else is struggling to keep you). Give up all struggle. The Lunar Eclipse moves you back into a space where you can avoid using friendships or your place in society (or lack thereof) as a distraction from giving your creative voice a platform from which to be heard (or seen). It's Art Therapy time. It's movies. It's tests of confidence. It's injecting love with fun. And finding fun and thus letting Love find you. Your inner Child demands your attention. Listen up!
You've been fighting yourself for some time now. Deep within, a war is being waged and you've rolled up your sleeves and proved a worthy opponent - even if it is just against life. Yes, at times you've felt weak or weakened, incapable or just frustrated. Yuk. However, this Eclipse promises a six month period that will aid you in getting out of your own way (and past and long-distant squabbles or issues to attack) so that you can allow for the new people and projects that are already shaping up around you. Work is coming, but you won't have to do it alone. In fact, you're better off when you're NOT alone, Bulls. Do anything but withdraw to your room. Find ways to offer your services, people to help you, mutually beneficially arrangement (you massage my shoulders, I'll scratch your back).
Nothing can be changed by scrambling to try and fix it purely on the physical level (unless it's a tire puncture or other external annoyance) but boy will you stick it out and try. You're known for your grit and tenacity, your 'won't give up'-ness that has landed a lot of you in worse situations...though still alive enough to tell the tale. Problems - health and work issues - seem like curses now, sent to get you. Are you jinxed? No, it's just the Universe's way of showing YOU how YOU are a master problem solver. Forget the "fixing" part for now. The Libra Eclipse reminds you to close your eyes, feel at One with everything and to quit pushing/forcing/fighting and instead to allow. Whether via a prayer, a meditation, a visualization or enforced time-outs via ill health. you'll find solutions when you reach for quiet inner peace. Which means evicting the gremlins of fear from your unconscious mind...
As the sign of ego-dissolution, it's frustrating when you're trying to be yourself when something or someone wipes it all away, ignores it, denies it, victimizes or uses other means to make you feel last, least, unseen and, perhaps, unheard? You've put up a good fight to maintain yourself, especially when mixed up with others who may not have your best interests at heart. This Eclipse helps you unhook your fins from the nets of "fighting for your very survival" to actually allowing new allies to aid you, love you and otherwise support you to that end - beyond surviving to thriving. The Art of Love and the Seeking of Balance is difficult treacherous terrain. But as you encompass all emotion (phew!), you've equipped for the job. Peace comes when you confront darker emotions or entities clinging. Ask for help. When you trust, even when untrusted, you share vulnerability - just the thing to connect more fully, with another.
