Equinox Lunar Eclipse

This month's Aries Full Moon is very powerful, so don't be surprised by the surprises that come your way. It's the Harvest Moon, the Full Moon closest to the Autumn Equinox. It is the 4 th consecutive Blood Moon total lunar eclipse in the last two years, a rare occurrence called a tetrad. It is also the second and most powerful Super Moon this year, when the Moon comes the closest to Earth in its elliptical orbit--as well as closely aligning with the Lunar Nodes. This means the Moon will look BIG!

So this lunar eclipse will create extra strong tides and energy flows, disrupting sleep and energy levels. Added to this, when eclipses occur near the equinoxes, a time when the Earth's magnetic field decreases, they aid us in making rapid changes, releasing old energy patterns so there's energy available to create new forms. Needless to say, the energies will be intense. Give these energies a week or so to calm down before you try to integrate what you've learned.

The first in this tetrad series of lunar eclipses was on April 15 th 2014 at 26* Libra/Aries, the second was on October 8 th 2014 at 16* Aries/Libra, the third was on April 4 th 2015 at 15* Libra/Aries and the fourth and last is this eclipse on September 27 th 2015 at 5* Aries/Libra. Whatever houses are occupied by Aries and Libra in your astrology chart will determine which aspects of your life have gone through tremendous changes and awakenings during these two years. In general, it's been a process of learning to be less self-concerned and more partnership oriented.

All four eclipses occurred in the signs of Aries and Libra because the Lunar Nodes have been moving through these signs for the past year and half. The Lunar Nodes point to a collective lesson we all have to work through, old patterns to be dropped and new lessons to be learned. With the South Node in Aries, we've been called on to let go of our old behavior patterns of reacting to situations with anger, domination and aggression, as well as our need to 'go it alone'. The Libra North Node calls us to learn cooperation, diplomacy and partnership equality. This has played out on the world stage with the Iran Nuclear Treaty, with war mongers in the US Congress opting to stay with the old patterns of war, fear and aggression while diplomacy won out.

With this last Aries Blood Moon total lunar eclipse, it's time to integrate the endings, awakenings, transformations and death and rebirth experiences related to the balance of Self and Other, completing our initiation into a more balanced exchange between the masculine and feminine energies of life as well as between women and men.

All new things start with our choices. Our free will is our greatest gift, and yet many people don't use theirs. That's when we get stuck in life and can't seem to find a way out. Being a victim entails not seeing options in our lives. We shut down on life. Being an optimist means that we see different opportunities and choices we can make. There are possibilities in life.

Choices begin the process of change. Our brain chemistry changes when we make choices. Making a choice signals our brain that we're ready to begin a journey. So the choice is the first step in changing our behaviors.

A song we sing at the Equinoxes urges us to make those choices.

Onward we go round the spiral

Touching darkness, touching light
