Why hello, Lunar Eclipse x Full Moon in Libra (March 23rd)
I have to talk about this. It's just too cool. Today, March 23rd, we are undergoing a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse, which means the Full Moon moves into Earth's shadow and darkens the night sky (and Jupiter will be extra bright!).
THIS full moon just so happens to be in Libra. I am a Libra, and I feel incredibly connected to my sign. Interestingly, both Eclipses in this 'Eclipse portal' land in Libra AND Pisces. Fun Fact: My mother is a Pisces. I can't help but feel this one is special.
The following quotations have been respectfully curated form the incredible Mystic Mamma. They are my #1 source for all of my astro obsessions:
DIVINE HARMONYon Libra & PIsces: “…these two signs tend to be very idealistic, want to see the beauty, tend to ignore the shadow and also tend to over focus on others at the expense of the self…"
^ I can definitely speak to this. From time to time, I find myself focusing on what I WANT to see (the beauty) that I ignore the nitty gritty (the shadow). It's important to see from both viewpoints, and find a way to make both work in harmony with your life. With this Full Moon, this is our chance to reflect on what we could shift our focus on to better serve ourself and others.
SARAH VARCASfrom her Astro-Awakenings.co.uk: “It’s time to cut ourselves and each other some slack; to accept that waves of energy come and go. “If we try to push too hard against prevailing conditions now, desperate to maintain ‘progress’ no matter what, we may end up burning out and creating more stress rather than less. "We cannot, at this point, extricate ourselves into ‘better times’ simply by sheer force of will. It is time to rest, stop and reflect.
^ Do ya feel me on this one? This week I've been feeling overloaded, and dare I say, burnt out? On the flipside, I'm terribly excited for the future, and I can't seem to stop the wheels from turning. I need to reconnect with my Libra nature and keep the balance within, and find a space for myself.
So, there is tension in the Universe with this Lunar Eclipse - something's gotta give.
The Takeaway: Focus on your driving force. Encourage others, but don't over-focus or fixate on any particular person or thing. Stay level-headed, open-minded and as always, see each phase of the moon as a chance for charge and renewal.
