April Showers: The Eclipses

 Lunar Eclipse in Libra, April 15

With a Lunar Eclipse there's a chapter in our lives that's about to come to a close or completion. With this eclipse in Libra, relationships will be at the forefront. For some of us, this may mean taking the next step in a partnership or choosing to do away with one all together. The big theme here will be around balance and reciprocation, as Libra is the sign of The Scales.

Solar Eclipse in Taurus, April 29

If Lunar Eclipses represent endings or completion, then Solar Eclipses represent beginnings and fresh starts. Through Taurus this comes by way of physical comfort/health, as Taurus represents an earthy, palpable kind of mojo. Taurus wants to give you something you can hold on to like cold, hard cash or a sound body. Resources will be a theme here; taking advantage of opportunities to build and maintain/protect them are the focus.


Keep in mind that emotions will be on high during this month. The days surrounding the eclipses tend to bring anxious energy. Take time to ground yourself in activities you enjoy, with people you enjoy, to take some of the edge off.

Lastly, on the eclipses--it's interesting to note that they both occur in signs represented by Venus, the planet of love and wealth. It seems the Universe wants to highlight our relationship to our own pleasure and self-worth. Is it healthy? Are we actively participating in fulfilling our desires or passively standing by? What would it take for each of us to create a pleasurable life? How many of us truly feel we deserve one? These are just a few questions to get your brains stirring, of course, knowing where the eclipses will transit your chart will help too. Those with major planets or angles in Libra, Aries, Scorpio, or Taurus should pay extra special attention.
