Blood Moon -- Lunar Eclipse in Libra: Imbalances Explode

April 15 brings an astonishingly powerful full Moon -- not just because it falls in Libra, the sign of relationships, but also that it's one of the most emotionally overwhelming eclipses of the year. Given that this lunar eclipse arrives during the hot zone of April’s intense astrology, with the Grand Cardinal Cross right around the bend, it’s not one to be trifled with. Here is what you need to know.

Libra is the sign of diplomacy, relationships, fairness and beauty -- but it may not look that way at the time of the eclipse. These are the issues that Libra wants to release into the world, but when the Moon is full in the sign of the scales, what we feel the most is the lack of harmony, and the desperate need to restore what is out of balance.

You might feel this need so strongly that you literally feel dizzy during the days leading up to this lunation. Because it’s an eclipse, it’s at least 10 times stronger than a typical full Moon. The polarity of Libra is me-first Aries, and our impulse is to get our own needs met before anyone else's. When the Moon is full in Libra and opposing the Sun in Aries, all of this energy comes to a head, and we feel it most in our one-to-one relationships.

This eclipse can bring old issues and ancient karma to the surface, perhaps even stuff you thought you'd long ago taken care of. If there's anything that's still unresolved for you and your boss or co-worker, the days leading up to this eclipse could bring it right out in the open in an explosive fashion. This is especially true if there's a strong imbalance in the dynamics -- if one person gives more and the other person takes more.

So, it's important to express yourself gently now, even if you feel anger rising from within you like a once-dormant volcano about to erupt for the first time in a thousand years. With Mercury making close aspects to this full Moon, consider writing down what you want to say before screaming it aloud. Or at least find a friend, therapist or other good listener to talk to before you let loose.

Everyone is on the defensive now, emotions are on edge and people are exceptionally anxious -- it’s not just you! That's why it's so essential to remain calm and seek balance this week, even if you feel more off-kilter than ever.
