As we prepare for the Lunar Eclipse in Libra/Aries on April 14/15, I received the message of staying alert. This message isn't to alarm anyone, but think of it as preparing for an initiation or as Michelle Patterson (Angel Souls Oracle) tells us, for a foot race. All that spiritual training or other types of training such as balancing emotions, developing courage, and good management skills pays off this week.
I've received numerous warnings to tell people not to get drunk or stoned this week. If you do that, you won't be able to act on your feet nor will you have your wits about you. The challenges this week come on suddenly and depending on the location, some people will deal with earthquakes, fires, floods, and other disruptive natural events (I'll refrain from using the word disaster). Think in the mindset of an athlete. An athlete would not get wasted or seek an escape route before a big event. An athlete prepares in mind and body. The athlete focuses on a goal, in our case, it is a major shift of energy on the planet. What we experience this week is much bigger than an Olympic event and involves every single being on the planet.
Fiery types (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) are up for the challenge. They bring positivity and hope, as well as, courage and leadership. Earthy types (Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo), keep us grounded by helping out with practicalities and helping us to stay calm. Virgo is the star player in this regard because Virgos know how to fix things, get organized and keep things moving in the right direction. Watery types (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) bring nurturing, healing, comfort, intuitive insights and keep us on our spiritual paths. Finally Airy types (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) help us keep our thoughts in order. They are the engineers, the planners, and the ones that keep us from losing our heads. They bring detachment thus quelling any drama or melodrama that comes up. All four elements must cooperate and make peace with each other.
This week Jupiter and Uranus form a perfect square as they move into place for the Grand Square/Cross that takes place on the 23rd when Mars transits to 13 degrees Libra. We will witness numerous sudden events between now and then, from natural earth shifting events like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, mud and rock slides (and sink holes) as well as, breakthroughs in government as far as the people joining together to usher in new government leaders such as the election happening now in Afghanistan in which the people voted despite threats from the Taliban. There is a lot of power to the people energy this month. Think back to Arab Spring and the Occupy Movement when Uranus formed its first Cardinal Square with Pluto. Except now we have expansive Jupiter forming a square with Uranus. People are literally fed up with the status quo, have had enough of the old game and demand justice and freedom. Jupiter and Uranus are both freedom seekers who thrive on ideologies. Out with the old, in with the new.
The above article link is a good example of Uranus-Jupiter Square.
We see this on the collective and individual levels now. So expect a lot of chaos and excitement this week. If you can take time out to meditate, go for walks, take warm baths in Epsom salt and practice extreme self-care. Even though the Lunar Eclipse Moon is in Libra, a detached air sign, people will appear wrought with emotions and logic isn't going to come into play. The Aries Sun causes us to act like spoiled children who want our desires met now and this could get out of hand, especially with this eclipse in Cardinal signs. Stay calm as possible and keep your head about you. I see us giving ourselves time outs this week as if we are children. Instead of focusing on what other people are doing or not doing, focus on your inner voice and listen closely for your next step. Partner with intuition this week because it could save your life.
Now is not a good time to start new projects, but keep working on the old ones. Be patient with delays and strange behavior in others. Don't let anyone pull the wools over your eyes and refrain from enabling bad or destructive behavior in others. Stand up for yourself, but with compassion for everyone involved. Still this could mean walking away from relationships that are soul damaging. Some of you will relocate now, some of you will switch jobs now, someone of you will break up a relationship, and some of you will seek freedom above all else. However, make these choices with love in mind. Be gentle with yourself and others. If you feel angry then back off and clear your mind before addressing any issues.
When we clear out the old, we make room for the new. And the new is better than you could have ever imagine.

A note about the Sun transiting into Taurus. My emphemeris has the Sun at 0 degrees Taurus on April 21, but the Sun actually moves into Taurus on the 19th, depending where we are in the world. So for the sake of my posts I'm going with April 21st because it's the first full day of the Sun in Taurus. Obviously if someone is having a chart cast for the 19th, the Sun will either coming out Aries or Taurus depending on the time of day and region of the world.
