March Lunar Eclipse

March Lunar EclipseOn the 23rd, the March Lunar eclipse occurs when Full Moon in Libra opposes Sun/Mercury in Aries. This is a culmination that involves finding equal ground with someone – me vs you, my goals vs your needs – or being pushed by somebody else to finally make a decision. On the same day, Jupiter squares Saturn, adding a broader backdrop to this personal tug-of-war; do you feel restricted by a partner? Or are you the one bringing realistic expectations to the table?

The March Lunar eclipse occurs at 3º Libra; if you have any natal or progressed planets/angles/nodes at this spot (or another Cardinal sign), you will feel this eclipse strongest. Keep in mind that eclipses burn a mark at the degree they occur, and transits that follow from 6 months to up to 2 years can rehash the life events corresponding with the eclipse, like an echo.

This particular eclipse may involve fighting or harsh words, because Mercury is traveling with the Sun in impatient, impulsive Aries. People can get a bit righteous during this Full Moon: Mars in Sagittarius aspects both Sun and Moon. Libra projects its own ugly, unrefined qualities (like anger, instigation, narcissism), and also allows the scales to become quite imbalanced before swinging violently the other way. Be cautious of too much finger-pointing and too little ownership.

You can build something constructive out of this. You can further a relationship by airing things out, because it’s likely that one of you has felt victimized or has been taken advantage of during this emotionally heavy Pisces season. Or, you can make a necessary, personal decision with grace and objective judgement.

The Jupiter-Saturn square means this interpersonal dynamic represents a larger issue. There are limits to your possibilities, says Saturn. You have to choose what details to focus on, and be realistic. If you are projecting this restriction onto somebody else (or being the voice of reason for someone), then the Libra “It’s not fair!” rally isn’t about them, it’s about you. But when is it not, ultimately?
