LIBRA – I Balance / I give / I receive
Artist: Josephine Wall
Lovely Libra. Libra represents diplomacy (although sometimes they engage gob before brain and can wound with their thoughtless comments). Peace – they are the Peacemakers of the zodiac. Lovely fair minded Libra always champions the underdog and wants harmony and justice for all. The Arts – many Librans become actors and enjoy performing as well as creating. Partnerships – Libra is the greatest teacher for us all regarding partnerships of all kinds. Law and politics – they are highly intellectual. Idealism – big dreams which they do have the power to manifest if they have the confidence to believe in themselves and their abilities. Shadow side of this is spending too much time in La La Land and not getting on with things on the earthly level. They are also great communicators (once they are confident in themselves) and make great counsellors and mediators.
An Air sign, they are the thinkers of the zodiac and can come up with innovative solutions. The shadow side of this is procrastination, Librans are the procrastinators of the zodiac, they’re always worried about making the wrong decision and end up with analysis paralysis!
Librans make loyal, loving friends and partners, however never tread on their dreams as they won’t forgive that. They make great parents and are always fun to have around. Librans can be too nice for their own good and need to ensure folks don’t take advantage of them. They need to keep an eye on setting limits and boundaries. Generous and giving, they need to learn to receive and to ask for help when they need it.
This powerful Lunar Eclipse is all about you Libra! It falls on the Equinox adding to its power. Libra, the blinkers have been taken off, you have been given the green light to start afresh, to start anew, to boldly go where you have never gone before. And this time Libra, you need to do it so get off the fence – stop worrying about whether you are making the right decision – and go for it! In fact you absolutely must go for it. Do not miss this opportunity – because soon you may have several opportunities coming your way. Whatever you want you can have now Libra.
Eclipse energy can make you feel a bit spacey and ‘away with the faeries’; you may find it hard to concentrate wanting instead to let your mind drift to other dimensions.
Full Moon dreaming has been powerful for many, much sifting and sorting and also many new messages coming through. Also some have been receiving premonitions.
More folks are receiving clarity about their way forward. Many are starting to feel excited about what is ahead. Others are still waiting for the final pieces to fall into place and do not yet have all the clarity they need – but they will.
I want to mention how important it is to look after your immune system. The nuclear toxicity from the Fukushima incident hasn’t gone away. In fact it is starting to affect more and more of us with implications for our health. The massive Tsunami rubbish pile is also still working its way across the oceans and that too hasn’t gone away even after all these years and is causing problems.
Health-wise February and March can be a bit dodgy for those in the Northern hemisphere with fluctuating temperatures and our systems not quite filled with Spring energy. Therefore look after your immune system, not just downing Echinacea every day (it’s not suitable for everyone), but a variety of foods, herbs and supplements that will support you in different ways as you build your energy up for the active months ahead. (If you need any help with this, just let me know). Drink plenty of good quality water, stop and take some conscious breaths several times a day so that your rib cage and intercostal muscles stay flexible and not tense. Get out in Nature, walking in Nature helps to ground our energy and also gives us energy as we connect with our beloved Earth Mother.
FULL MOON Lunar Eclipse Equinox in LIBRA
The Spring Equinox is our ‘reset button’. Shaking off the last vestiges of Winter, we adjust to the new growing energy internally and externally. We can use this Full Moon period to take a look at the changes needed before we plant our brave new seeds into the fertile Earth, where they will be nurtured until the time is right for our dreams/goals to blossom.
This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is the final one in a series of eclipses that began in October 2013 occurring in Libra and Aries. Look back over the past three years –
- What has changed in your life?
- How have you changed?
- How have your dreams and goals changed?
- What have you learned about yourself, your life, and the others in your life in the past three years?
This Full Moon lunar eclipse closes the first Eclipse season of this year. In Libra this lunar eclipse is heightened and highlighted by the Full Moon, which asks us to look at what we all want in life. What do you want?
Libra is the relationship sign, and we are connected to/in a relationship with everything and everyone. The Lakota Sioux expression “Mitaku’ye Oyasin” (All Our Relations), sums this up. ALL our relations, we are in relation with ALL. Not just personal relationships, but professional ones, friendship ones, group ones, how we relate to planet Earth and beyond.
So how are you doing with that?
This Libra Full Moon lunar eclipse could bring up relationship issues of all kinds. It could be an emotional time as we all find our voice, face our fears and talk about what we truly want in our relationships, and in all areas of our lives. For some, this may mean ending some relationships/connections that you have outgrown. This lovely Full Moon eclipse can also increase tenderness and connectivity in existing relationships, with your bonds growing deeper and stronger as you plan the way forward together. In fact it could be a very romantic time for many.
Librans are not very good with boundaries; in the past they let people walk all over them. Not any more. Libra reminds us all to take a good look at our boundaries, and gives us the energy to reinforce them. We are all stronger now than three years ago. We are getting to a point of knowing what we want and setting boundaries in place as we work towards our dreams/goals.
Libra is a classy sign and invites us all to up our game, to raise our standards and not settle for second best ever again. Take a look at yourself, how can you raise your personal standard? Dress better, act more confidently, speak positively about yourself? Take a look at your home, what needs upgrading or could do with revamping? Take a look at the way you work, how can you upgrade yourself at work? All these tiny changes will reap great benefits for you later in the year.
And if you are having trouble identifying any of the above, be assured that the Full Moon will bring to the surface that which you need to deal with first. You may have to be brave and say what you want, others may not like that – no-one likes change – however you can be quiet no longer, these changes have to happen now. The energies are perfect for changing what needs to be changed to bring about the life you have always wanted. It is time for us all to Walk our Talk.
As ever, balance is the key. Not allowing your mind to torture you with confusion and multiple scenarios, not allowing your heart to rush you into wrong decisions. Balance between mind and heart is essential during this transit. Do some Yoga and/or yogic breathing exercises to help you achieve this balance (or use our ‘Interior Alignment’ Essence, which is fantastic for bringing all parts of you back into alignment allowing you to carry on in a balanced, harmonious way. It’s like Feng Shui for your inner being!)

Libra is the sign of balance, so if something happens during this transit that makes you wobble or knocks you off balance. Realise this:
1. It had to happen – no point resisting this fact.
2. The old needs to go to make way for the new.
3. Something much, much better is on its way for you.
And do everything you need to do to regain your equilibrium. Especially grounding any shocks (Essences are great for this, if you need help knowing which one/s are best for you right now, let me know and I will dowse for you). The more grounded you are, the more clear your mind will be about what you need to do next. Have faith that the Universe only wants the very best for you, trust that the best is on its way, believe that you deserve the best.
As ever, and as has been said many times in my Blog posts, Love is the key. Give Love – be Love – serve Love. Despite whatever is going on, do not let fear dominate, put it in its place. Get back into your heart and remember that you have tremendous cosmic support, so put on your big boy/girl panties and stride forward confidently.
Be gentle with yourself and with others. We are all going through this, so be patient with yourself and others over the next few days/weeks.
There is no need to rush, when you get the clarity and illumination you have been waiting for, there is a tendency to want the new to happen right now. (I am of course, talking about myself here, lol!). Patience is required so that all the right components can be put into place by the Universe, for the perfect result that you are seeking. We may be required to complete one or two more tasks before we get there, but that’s okay, it will all be worth it.
Please remember that you are not alone.
Please remember that it is okay to go for your big audacious plans and goals without feeling guilty.
This is your life.
We all know how short life can be, so honour yourself by going for what your heart truly desires.
NOTE: Eclipse energy can be felt for several weeks after it has happened.
The changes Eclipses cause can be felt for up to six months afterwards.
So be kind to yourself and others, be patient and most of all, be loving.
To know how this Eclipse may affect you, here’s an insight for your Sun Sign by the wonderful Chani Nicolas (www.ChaniNicholas.com) :
ARIES / Aries rising
Wednesday’s eclipse might trick you into thinking that it is not about you. It might have you believing that the ones you are in partnership are to blame. It might have you thinking that those you are in intimate relationships with are your claim to fame. Resist the temptation to project all the good, all the difficult and all business in between onto those that you are closest to. It’s time to take a good look at what you are willing to drop in terms of unhelpful behaviors in this area of your life. It’s time to take an honest look at what you have learned about your needs, your wants and your desires in this area of your life. There is more than one way in which this week brings you relationship lessons. They may be love, creative and/or career related lessons. But one thing is for sure – the nature of how you use your energy creatively in both love and your career will be illuminated this week.
TAURUS / Taurus rising
Wednesday’s eclipse helps you to get clarity on the amount of work that you have been able to accomplish in the past couple of years. It tells tales of those you have met along the way and how you have mutually made a difference in each other’s lives. It speaks to the strides that you have taken to love your physical self by taking care of it and making sure it gets all it needs. It speaks to what you are now, or are soon to be, ready for in your work life and your way of being in relationship with it. There is a great growth that will begin in this area of your life come the fall. That makes this last eclipse one that helps you to put to rest old insecurities and outdated doubts about your ability to make your mark with the work that you do.
GEMINI / Gemini rising
Wednesday’s eclipse wraps up a time period that has asked you to step up your creative output over the last couple of years. It’s been energizing your artistic ambitions. It’s been energizing your inner creator. It’s been teaching you about how to relate to your erotic energy. What to do with it. How to engage with it. Who to share it with. How to protect it. How to cultivate it. How to respect it. What have you attracted in that you are happy to keep working with? Who have you attracted in that you want to keep loving and learning from? How have you begun to understand your needs in romantic relationships?
CANCER / Cancer rising
Wednesday’s lunar eclipse highlights a part of your chart that, over the past few years, has been under the intensity that eclipses are famous for. This full moon offers you the ability to see all that you have healed and all that you have come to understand about the nature of your relationship to your inner life, your home, your family and the work that you have put into having and honest, sturdy and time-tested foundation. Wednesday’s lunar eclipse might have you in conversation with parents, landlords, housemates, real estate agents and the like. It might raise emotions. It might move you, quite literally. It might highlight, illustrate and reveal all the work that you have done and all the ways in which you are home. Home within yourself. Home in a way that can never be taken from you. Home to stay. Home for good. Home and happy about it. Happiness starts from within. You did alright, kid.
LEO / Leo rising
Wednesday’s full moon and lunar eclipse swoops in to remind you that you need to communicate your feelings. It shines a light on all you have learned about being able to say what you mean and mean what you say. It puts the finishing touches on something that you have been writing, conceptualizing and trying to make real in your communications. There could be a deadline, a contract, t’s to cross and i’s to dot. Do so. It’s a graduation of sorts as there won’t be eclipses in this part of your chart for some time and working with this one with whatever mastery you can muster will help you to move forward and get your messages across.
VIRGO / Virgo rising
While Wednesday’s eclipse highlights your evolving relationship to realizing your talents, calling on you to learn how to best work with your resources and how to ask for an equal trade for your efforts, the rest of the week’s astrology continues to rock your world. This tension is important for you to contend with. It aims to pull the best out of you. It aims to test you so that you are forced to stretch, work, relate and create past your known limits. This might affect what you are doing at work. This might affect what you are making at work. This might affect your relationship to what you are working on. It definitely works to increase your ability to be in balance with your material life.
LIBRA / Libra rising
This Wednesday’s lunar eclipse happens in your sign. It might bring about a challenge at work. It might highlight a particular working relationship that you are learning the most from. It might bring you so much energy that you know you can no longer hide from the work that is yours to do. Whatever happens, this is a moment to continually bring your inner focus back to yourself. No matter what goes down, this Wednesday’s eclipse wants you to remember that you are in the equation. It wants you to keep your gaze inward. It wants you to help yourself through the ups and down. It wants you to hold your own hand through the celebration. It wants you to have a private moment that makes space for you to reflect on the path that you have tread thus far. It wants you to honor the success as an outer reflection of all of the inner work that you have engaged with.
SCORPIO / Scorpio rising
Wednesday’s eclipse highlights the headway that you’ve made with the part of yourself that can be self-sabotaging. Wednesday’s eclipse reveals the ways in which your body has been teaching you much needed lessons about realizing that you have no control over what comes your way. Wednesday’s eclipse shows you just how well you have been able to take the energy that unnecessary suffering can suck from us and repurpose it for a higher purpose. Wednesday’s eclipse can point out the ways in which you may still be tied to stories of struggle that are no longer necessary to carry forward. This eclipse will be an invitation for some of you to cut ties with those old patterns. This eclipse may give you the opportunity to straddle both places, what you suffer from and what you know you no longer need to struggle with. Knowing both can make us humbly ambitious and willing to work in a way that keeps us in touch with all we need to work on while seeing the possibility of walking around with less pain.
SAGITTARIUS / Sagittarius rising
Wednesday’s lunar eclipse showcases who is on your wavelength. It shows you who you want at your party. It shows you who upholds the same hopes and dreams as you do. Someone may step forward to assist you. Someone may send a helpful email, encouragement or opportunity your way. Someone might help you, hold you and listen to you in a way you long for. Let them. Don’t cut short your good fortune. Don’t take a short cut when cultivating friendships. Don’t push away the people that are pulling out the best of you. Go through all the iterations that your friendships take on. See what they are teaching you. See what emotions, what thoughts and what ideas they inspire.
Wednesday’s lunar eclipse can also highlight all the ways in which you are able to reveal a more honest and transparent version of yourself in your communities. What ill-fitting identities have you let go of? What false representations of yourself have you let go of. What status symbols have you walked away from in order to walk towards a truer version of who you are and what you see for your future? Wednesday’s lunar eclipse makes clear your hopes for the future. It validates the visions.
CAPRICORN / Capricorn rising
Wednesday’s eclipse works wonders for your career. Its light casts a beautiful glow upon all you have been working on and towards. It’s a moment that may reveal the hard work that you’ve put in. It’s a moment to fully own. It’s a moment to bask in. It’s a moment to help you put your fears into perspective. Wednesday’s eclipse is an opportunity to appreciate what you do, how you do it and how well you have learned to do it. It’s an opportunity to see success through different eyes. it’s an opportunity to see what you no longer need to strive to achieve and what you still do. It is also another opportunity to trust that your life is moving along the path it needs to because you are committed to listening to what your life wants from you.
AQUARIUS / Aquarius rising
Wednesday’s eclipse encourages you to see the ground that you have covered over the last couple of years. It is highlighting the philosophical shifts that you’ve undergone. It’s celebrating all the ways in which you have recently allowed yourself more room, more opportunity and a greater vista of possibility to gaze out upon. This may effect what you are teaching, learning and publishing in the world. Allowing yourself to bring your ideas and philosophies into form is a fantastic way for you to reflect upon all that the eclipses have brought you lately.
PISCES / Pisces rising
It’s time to let your healing lead the way. You’re bigger than your fears. You’re more than your failures. You are made to make it. You are wired to work it out. You are fit to fight your way through the pitfalls and predicaments of this life. Wednesday’s eclipse highlights the ways in which you have learned to incorporate difficult lessons over the past couple of years. It highlights the ways in which you have learned to combine your energy with another, or how you have learned to separate out from those that you share yourself with. Relationships have a way of taking center stage right now, not only for the joy that they can bring, but for the lessons that they teach you about how you show up in the world, what you mean to others and how your relationship with those that you are closest to rallies your desire to do your thing out in the world.
