April 2015 Full & New Moons: Lunar Eclipse in Libra & New Moon in Aries
A full moon occurs when the transit (moving) Sun and Moon are exactly opposing one another in the zodiac. It tends to signal a time of endings, culminations, and things coming to fruition. A lunar eclipse is like an amped up full moon, and can impact you for up to six months. A new moon occurs when the transit Sun and Moon are in the exact same spot in the zodiac. It tends to signal a time of new opportunities, growth, and optimism.
For information on how the new/full moons may impact your sign, read the monthly horoscope.
April 4th 2015 Lunar Eclipse in Libra
A lunar eclipse occurs at 8:06AM ET at 14 degrees 24 minutes of Libra. In Libra, we’re concerned with fairness, justice, and equality, and if we don’t see that, we do everything we can to get it. Unfair laws can be struck down, rulings against equality are overturned, and we fight to defend the defenseless. We shine a light on the corruption in justice systems, and focus on what needs to be changed. We want more peace and harmony with these eclipses. This lunar eclipse is sextile (positive aspect) transit (moving) Jupiter in Leo, and we try to stay positive, looking at the brighter side of gloomy situations. This eclipse is also opposite transit Uranus in Aries, and we fight as hard as we can to be who we are and to have the freedom we desire, but our differences may be hard to accept. This eclipse is also square (hard aspect) transit Pluto in Capricorn, and we take down our oppressors, work to take control, and resist authority. If you're a Libra Sun, Moon, or mid-Libra rising, you may feel the effects of this moon most.
April 18th 2015 New Moon in Aries
A new moon occurs at 2:57PM ET at 28 degrees 25 minutes of Aries. In Aries, we want to hit the ground running. We’re ready to shed all of this seriousness, heaviness, and dreariness for some sunshine and laughter. Our attitudes are more positive, and we’re driven to do something, anything. We want to be moving at all times, and have plenty of energy to do so. Something important could begin now on a grand scale. We may not be entirely sure where we’re going, but we’re excited and enthusiastic, and we’re ready to roll. We don’t want to wait, we don’t want to ask for permission, and we don’t want to think about it first. This is a time for action, and so we take action. If you're an Aries Sun, Moon, or late Aries rising, you may feels the effects of this moon most.
