Erin Reese's Full Moon Astro-Tarot Forecast – April 15, 2014

Full Lunar Eclipse Moon in Libra 
Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Today, April 15, 2014, we have the presence of a full moon total lunar eclipse in the sign of Libra. This is a very intense time astrologically, and folks who are interested in such matters have been flooded with information about the "blood moon." In fact, I did wake up en pointe at the exact time of the eclipse last night (~12:42 a.m. PT) and went outside to pay respects to La Luna. While the Moon Herself was a bit hidden by haze, I could see the eclipse occurring. More striking was the blood-red-orange tint of the sky. I felt like the Heavens were bleeding out their very own stigmata in honor of Passover, Easter, and the promise of rebirth.
There is so much being said about this Full Moon that it’s hard to pare it all down and focus. This April's harsh grand cardinal planetary criss-cross can literally make us feel like Christ being crucified on the cross - and with eclipse energy to boot, the impact is even more potent. But really, all eclipses are about change – and they turn the tables in life so that we can get on with the show of our lives, to play out a new act and scene. During lunar eclipses, change often involves loss, sacrifice, and sometimes pain.
Periods of planetary evolution like this don’t come along many times in a lifetime. What is coming up right now is powerful and it will peak through Easter week. Again, if your life feels turned upside down, symbolically stand on your head: willingly be the Hanged Man or Woman and enjoy the new point of view. After all, the eclipse is in the sign of relationship and other-oriented Libra, so trying out another perspective is part and parcel of this energy.
The only way out is through an eclipse period, and with Libra involved, the best way through this time is to Love and Be Loved. Love ourselves through this change, first, and be gentle with ourselves as the evolutionary tides shift. Luckily, we have Neptune, Venus, and Chiron all in Pisces right now, forming a nice conjunction of unconditional love and compassion to help us through this time. Forgive others, and forgive yourself, for there is nothing to be ashamed of. Drop any and all resentments for it is just not worth holding onto anything that has outlived its purpose - let go and let G.O.D. (good orderly direction, if you will) handle it.
 The alterations being forced in our external and internal beings may hurt deeply. Shifts that occur now may even affect generations to come! That is how strong the grand cardinal cross in the sky can impact us. So keep all this in mind over the next week – whatever is happening is not just about you, it is also about your family, your partner or lover, your society, and your future. My sense is that we are being called to move toward commitment at this time, not away. Even if it's unfamiliar and uncomfortable at first. Perhaps it is time to more readily embrace the other. Maybe that commitment is to yourself, or maybe it’s to your partner, project, or even your business partner. But it is a time to say, yes, I am willing to show up for you in this way. I can be in a harmonious, symbiotic relationship with you, my lover/roommate/boss/friend. This commitment will be a great teacher in your life.
Nature Forces a New Equilibrium
Libra is about balance, of course, being the sign of The Scales. Witness how the changes crunching their way into your life right now are bringing you back into balance, or a new equilibrium. I studied Environmental Science at university, and one of my favorite principles of ecology is how natural disasters (external, uncontrollable events or “acts of God”) bring an ecosystem into a new equilibrium. It sometimes takes a very big push – a tsunami, earthquake, forest fire – to get that landscape or animal population into a new balance. And that’s what’s happening now with the Full Moon eclipse in Libra this week. Sure, wreckage may come through your life, but perhaps it will make room for a new growth. You may lose a job, a beloved, a project, a dream. But see how those new green shoots come sprouting out of the earth in no time at all. The canvas of your life can be cleared to start a new masterpiece. The landscape of You is back in balance – in a completely new environment within and without. Thank Nature.

Full Lunar Eclipse Moon in Libra 
Tuesday, April 15, 2014

After purifying the
visually extravagant VOYAGER Tarot deck and calling upon my guides, here are my channeled messages for the Full Moon in Libra… 

UNIVERSAL CARD (for everyone):
Let whatever blows out of or through your life this week simply BE the CLARITY you have been awaiting for ages! It can be a real breath of fresh air. Isn’t the word “no” or “never” better than not knowing? Use this crystalline clear information to allow you to come into a new balance. You will get clear on whatever it is that you truly need. Your soul knows before you do – and that will be revealed to you this week.

Cosmic forces are playing their hands now, Ram. You like to operate from your powerful self will but your wise side also knows that certain things are, quite simply, out of your hands. Like the weather. While you can wear a sunhat when it’s scorching out, or carry an umbrella when it rains, some preparation is useful, but some things are simply beyond your control. Be in awe at the power of Life itself.

Create. You are excellent at manifesting whenever you put your mind – and handiwork – to task. At this full Moon, your vision will radiate and you will bring into form whatever it is that you’ve needed to alchemize into balance. It could be cash, commitment, or a creative expression finally bursting forth.

Take this energy of change and run with it, Gemini! No more waitin’ around for ducks to get themselves in a row. FOCUS. Something has been taken away, or is in the process of being removed from your life. This is making it very clear that you now have ZERO EXCUSE to climb your personal mountain. While it hurts to relinquish X, Y, or Z, in your heart of hearts you can be assured that the Universe has your back and now you can get on with it.

It is time for you to offer some of your hard-won life wisdom to your family and closest community members. Have a gathering soon in your home, a circle or celebration or ceremony to honor wisdom you carry. Share it with us. We need your special blend of sage presence and warmth.

Keep up the efforts to get your life into balance, dear Leo. Whether you need more love, play, work, or fitness in your life, you have been trying all sorts of combinations to get into shape and balance, and this Full Moon eclipse is definitely going to provide you with a missing link.

Are you clear, Virgo, that your hard work and focus are leading you to more of what you want and/or need in life? You have the drive to meet a new goal in life and this Libra eclipse will definitely give you clarity on what type of relationship(s) support you – or not – in your life.

Yes it’s true: all eyes are on YOU and your identity this week. So why not use it as a springboard to give your life image and how everyone sees you as a complete upgrade opportunity, e.g. "Libra 3.0"? You know you’re getting a new O.S. and it’s time to launch. Trust: it will be a good thing!

My sense is that some old devil is rearing its head in your subconscious. Shadow play will occur for you during this eclipse time, Scorp, and that’s a good thing because you can finally see the demons in your closet as that illusions that they are. You can show them you are bigger than they are by shining the light of your consciousness into your subconscious basement. Have courage. Face ‘em; they won’t have power over you.

Let renewal come to you by relinquishing a bit more of your independence or sense of superiority. Let the community of people, animals or world family be your refreshment. You have an abundance of goodness in your life and you know that it isn’t one single relationship that gives you joy: it’s the big picture.

POWER to lead others is needed right now and at this time in your personal history, it’s time to step up to the plate. You’re going to be called to responsibility to share all that clear wisdom you’re carrying. The good spiritual values you carry in your heart, body, and mind need to be expressed to your community. You are an authority and it’s time to wield right use of power.

Cutting through can sometimes require sharp edges, and sometimes stings and knives, to get to the point of your purpose and you have the ability to trust that even when you’re emotionally challenged or stressed, you can keep going. As a Water Bearer, you’re especially attuned to letting the light of Truth reign in your world and let that be an inspiration for the rest of us.
All denial will be revealed during this Full Moon in Libra. Where in your life have you been conveniently been sweeping something under the rug? Maybe it’s financial or sexual or something taboo – and now it’s out in the open. Don’t lose faith; you know now what you’re facing and that is the most empowering thing! Welcome the truth. The cat’s finally out of the bag.
