The balance (Libra), the blade (Mars) the breaking (cross) scales.
Incoming cardinal cross Libra Lunar / Toro Solar eclipses signal choices.
Choices dealt to you and those choices you create for others.
We are also busy changing our own evolutionary charted courses.
** Venus ruling both signs indicates choices in the realms of
Balance & Diplomacy
Peace of Mind
The flow of details between you & another increases in importance with Libra eclipse.
Share rather than collect ideas.
Tending peace of mind, tranquility, safety & security increases with Toro eclipse.
Slow for consolidation and consideration.
Total Lunar Eclipse Visibility below. Note: Eclipse energies generally stronger for those in the visible path, revelations are more intense. Also note: Full Moon means news incoming from your house of Libra.
During this lunar eclipse, Earth is between Aries Sun and Libra Moon opposition, bringing material earth matters between conscious ego / subconscious feeling principles. We wrestle with emotional issues as they surface at hyperdrive eclipse speeds – strive to consciously express them into genius fruition into the material plane. This of course, has the potential to erupt into the classic it sounded waaay cooler in my head dilemma because we are dealing with a lot of I know what I wants – now how do I get its.
Practical skillsets, structured sensations, goal achievements are finding balance in the realms of I Am This & You are That aka: relationships/ partnerships THE Dance that keeps the species going.
Not to be outdone, Earth is also between Cancer Jupiter and Capricorn Pluto Rx opposition. These heavyweights are demanding compromise & cooperation in the realms of Old Family & New Status. What used to work isn’t necessarily working now. Collectively, we are finally getting on board with this game plan. Green energy, natural foods, using earth & water & air sensitively.
We personally and globally feel the tension between all these aspects on a very personal level via squares which cause internal friction. We are forced to face past failures and fix them, alter course to harmonious success to the best of our abilities.
Transmute cardinal square energy by TAKING POSITIVE ACTION.
Find a way around your obstacles – shift personal perspectives.
When handled correctly, Cardinal Cross creative tension leads to accelerated positive personal growth. Getting pissy and ripping other people’s heads off for not toeing your party line is obviously not productive, BEING the CHANGE you want to SEE, is.
Total Lunar Eclipse with North Node (beneficial emo changes) is ruled by Venus (Lord of Eclipse) which dovetails between Neptune and Chiron in Pisces. Venus and Neptune are octaves of love/art/touch, obviously beneficial. In tandem with the vibe of the centaur, Chiron: philosopher, healer, teacher/mentor, trainer of heroes – all in trine to Jupiter in Cancer, exalted.
We have healing, people, plain and simple.
Love healing, artistic healing, spiritual healing, ditching addictions for intuitive idealism, Jedi Masters in the making.
Chiron, Jupiter, Saturn Rx grand water (emotional) trine – deep well of psyche diving. Karma/genetics/wounded healers. Something is lost, something gained.
Chiron quincunx Mars Rx – altitude adjustments in the brainpan, morality shifts re: risks, actions, men via relationships – find your sea legs, ck compass, alter course.
Venus/Chiron sextile Pluto Rx in Capricorn (mutual reception with Saturn Rx in Scorpio, ye olde skool Use it or Lose it/Trash to Treasure transit.
Use your gifts to heal others.
Mercury/Uranus conjunction in Aries opposite Full Moon/Mars – please use vehicular caution, manage motor mouth – when in question, play it cool and close to the vest. Mars Rx is not necessarily firing bull’s-eye straight at the mo.
::: These are love shakedown perspective shifter eclipses :::
1 break with outdated mental traditions
2 begin constructing new neural nets
Placing bets that someone says something strangely synchronous –in fact, two things– that blow your mind/shift your emotional perspective – causing you to alter your course to a higher vibration.
These eclipses are part of Saros Series 16 South highlighting cycles of mis-directed energy, needless sacrifice for the collective. Brainstorms, intuitive comms likely; best used for internal re-programming rather than outward actions.
Asteroid Sekhmet preheats the solar eclipse degree of 8 Taurus from the lunar eclipse.
Sekhmet is a destroyer goddess, derived from sekhem, or power, and khem which means dark chaos that gives birth to light. She represents the transformation of death into wisdom and enlightenment – she is the flame, the scorching sun that burns away the enemy/dark side. When sent by the Sun God, Ra to punish non-worshipping humans, Sekhmet nearly annihilated the entire human race, drinking blood as she killed. Ra then ordered mandrake brew to be mixed with the blood of fallen victims. Sekhmet drank, became happily intoxicated, ending her vicious slaughter.
Sekhmet embodies lust, passion, strength and magick.
How ironic the juxtaposition of Sekhmet & these eclipses – yes ?
Cardinal Cross perfects for the Lunar Eclipse and to some extent havoc ensues.
Electric ideas are popping in our Mars-ruled Aries heads ricocheting off all corners trying to find a place to ground which is btw, PLUTO. aka: death/rebirth
Only. Earth. Placement.
Mayhem driven intellectual Metamorphosis.
Solar Eclipse delivers much more steadfast solidarity, less freak the fuck out crisis energy. Cardinal Cross is still humming along in the background, but is less sensitive due to Toro zen luminaries, Mercury. The choice is made, we’re making maps, building roads & bridges so we can drive our asses into the promised land.
Toro Solar Eclipse is very much Venus flavored, but the close proximity of Mercury to Sun/Moon makes Mercury Lord of the Solar Eclipse.
Trickster is steady as she goes in Taurus – grounded trine to Pluto; sextiles to Neptune and Jupiter in water signs. Feelers out – engage intellectual innovation & creative willpower for highest manifestation.
Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Taurus finds Venus past emo depth charges found in the Neptune/Chiron conjunction at first eclipse and firmly regenerating healing growth via new emotional roots with a (separating) trine to Saturn Rx in Scorpio.
The gift of a creative genius quintile to Pluto emphasizes this with Pluto/Saturn in mutual reception.
Jupiter and Saturn Rx are meeting in harmonious trine while Mercury moves to sextile Jupiter and Neptune from Toro. It occurs to me that student teaching gigs work.
(Mercury/Gem & Sagittarius/Jupes energy are the students & teachers)
Despite the hurdles and mistakes along the way, these gigs work because it is vital to DO the WORK – DAILY. If we wait to make offerings until we are perfect scholars, the show is already over.
Lunar Eclipse Cardinal Cross is JUST DO IT energy.
Solar Eclipse Cardinal Cross is patient practice, skills earned & learned.
Consider these things when you begin working with New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus. Mundane matters are favored, such as increase of wealth, sensuality, peace of mind, patience and good sense.
Eclipse energies bring wild fluctuation, but are also packed with power for positive personal and collective change.
