KARMIC JUSTICE LIBRA LUNAR ECLIPSE March 23, 2016 MEDITATION

The second eclipse of the year is a North Nodal penumbral Lunar Eclipse @ 3+ degrees LIBRA, the sign of Justice, karma and balance. We certainly need this to bring balance into our own lives, relationships and to karmically adjust the crazy shenanigans happening everywhere in the world. We need to find the balance between the opposites.

This is a FULL MOON in LIBRA invoking the ARIES/LIBRA, “I” Thou , relationship axis, of self and other. Lunar eclipses brings us new emotional cycles and insightful, intuitive and often psychic revelations in relationships, communications, creativity and values. 

This eclipse helps us to see just how out of balance we are and how important karmic choices must be made now. We have to create a  balance of masculine and feminine energies, a SACRED ALCHEMY, the sacred MARRIAGE, within ourselves and in the world. Recently elected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appointed the first equal male and female cabinet ministers in the world. When asked why, he simple answered “Because it’s 2015.”  Enough said.

This eclipse will reactive last years’ September 27 total lunar eclipse at 4+ degrees ARIES. Think back on what has transpired in your life over these last six months.

LIBRA is ruled by VENUS and she is now in Pisces where she is exalted. Venus is especially powerful as she is conjunct to NEPTUNE her “higher octave.” They are blessings us with spiritual, dreamy, out of this world cosmic Bliss. Tantric sexuality, knowing the Beloved, cosmic orgasms and uniting with soul mates is the hallmark for Lovers under this eclipse energy. You can also experience this if you are solo simply through breathing and meditations.

Lunar eclipses stir up the electro-magnetic fields, unconscious feelings and emotions. It also amplifies our dreams, so do pay attention to your dreams. This eclipse also increases fertility aspects. If you are trying to conceive a baby or a creative project, use this energy to help you. Check out where 3 degrees Libra falls in your natal chart.

The Sun is conjunct Mercury eight hours after the eclipse. A clear sign of the need to communicate in new {Aries} ways. This bodes well for new relationships or agreements created around this time.

LIBRA is ruled by VENUS and she is still very tightly connected to her Higher Mate Neptune in PISCES. We are under this benevolent, romantic, creative very spiritual, uplifting, compassionate aspect since Equinox 3 days earlier. 

Mars, where the action always is, sextiles the Moon and EROS, at 3 degrees AQUARIUS,indicating some hot dates. Mars also Trines the Sun from fiery Sagittarius. Mars in Sagittarius is a Truth warrior, a philosopher and fighter for justice. This is all good stuff.

JUPITER is conjunct the NORTH NODE and leading us onwards to expansion, faith, optimism, humility, hard work, learning about the environment, our health and work needs. Jupiter is in a TIGHT square {90 degrees} to Saturn about to turn RETROGRADE {16 degrees Sagittarius}  on the 25th on Good FRIDAY, and digging his heals in the tightest as the planet is barely moving. 

JUPITER and SATURN are in a wide opposition and square to NEPTUNE and VENUS. Your love will be tested in the most practical of everyday detailed way. Money issues may be the make it or break it area, or spiritual beliefs or some hidden or not so hidden enemies, like in-laws.  The reality of what IS, very hard and cold is being revealed versus the big dream, illusion, projection of how perfect they are.

CHIRON the wounded healer and the SOUTH NODE of the MOON and GREAT MOTHER CERES are conjunct indicating a karmic releasing of old, very old, karmic issues which we know are haunting us deep down in our souls and where we are the most afraid to go because that is where we are the most vulnerable and also the most healing of places.

These are ancient wounds around the Great Mother,  in all her glorious aspects who has been denied, suppressed, raped, tortured and ignored for thousands of years. This is a deep wound and every woman carries this as well as every man to. The soul is called the anima and is always considered feminine.  A man feels his mothers emotions in utero, so he knows deep down what the feminine feels. A man’s misogyny may stem from his own guilt and denying his own part in usurping the power of the Feminine. It is a huge defense. 

URANUS and PLUTO still in Cardinal crosses. 

LIBRA’s symbol is the ancient Egyptian Goddess MAAT’s golden scales of karmic justice. The Egyptian’s believed that after death, the human heart is weighed on the scales against Maat’s ostrich feather. If the heart is heavier than the feather, then the soul must return to earth to continue working on its’ emotional issues until cleared. Only when the heart is show to be as light as Maat’s feather and the scales are perfectly balanced, then the soul is considered freed of all karmic lessons.  This is the key symbol and one which we can always ask ourselves, How light is my heart in regards to this?

Lunar eclipses, like solar ones occur at similar degrees every 18+ years in what are called Saros cycles.  This is the 18th lunar eclipse in Saros cycle 142 which began on September 19, 1709 and which will end on November 17, 3007. 

The number 18 seems very powerful to me as a Tarot Astrology and Numerology symbol.

The #18 Arcana {Trump} in the Tarot is the symbol of The MOON. It is associated with Pisces and is the dark side of the moon, symbolizing our unconscious, our deepest darkest fears and karma. 

The number 18 in Hebrew, CHAI, means Life.  We can breathe, LIBRA, an AIR sign; new life into our relationships and into our understanding of our hopes and fears to bring more balance.

The Moon at 3 degrees LIBRA is conjunct to one of the most massive Black holes there is, in GALAXY-87 called ADONIS by astrologer Alex Miller-Mignone. This super sucker of all light and matter’s event horizon is 326 LIGHT YEARS across. That is staggering.  The short story of ADONIS the handsome youth who was born because of a magic spell from jealous Aphrodite/Venus and was eventually forced to split himself into being Persephone’s lover in Hades for part of the year and to spend part of his year with Venus on Mt. Olympus as her lover and part of his time alone.  

I find it fascinating that this Black Hole degree perfectly symbolizes where we are out of balance in our precious time for relationships and where it all gets sucked into these days.

Libra is an Air sign, the mind, it’s about communications after all. The net, our cell phones, sucks us into a Black Hole. They are useful tools but also keep us overextended like Adonis, running from one thing to the next frantically trying to appease others’ needs, our job, boss, partner, children with our own. We desperately need a middle more balanced way.

LIBRA is symbolized by the TAROT Trump #8 JUSTICE, also #11.

Justice Tarot Trump

Justice’s color is emerald-green, relating it to the heart chakra and Archangel Raphael. Its sound is F#. The symbol means an ox goad. The Hebrew letter is lamed.

MEDITATION and RITUAL

For the ceremony and meditation we want to bring in as many attributes as we can.  Use what you have.

Minerals and Stones associated with Libra

Smoky quartz, rutilated quartz, Herkimer diamonds, Moonstones, emeralds, lapis, kunzite, coral.

Stones for Aries

Red garnets, bloodstones, carnelian, ruby, amber.

I would use watermelon tourmaline as it has both the green tourmaline for Libra and the red for Aries.

Set up an alter or sacred meditation space.

Use lots of smudge and incense for Cardinal AIR.

Coriander, rose, sweetgrass, sandalwood, and vanilla for LIBRA. Put on quiet meditation music. You can prerecord these instructions with pauses to listen to as you do the meditation.

Use white or green for Venus and red candles for Mars/Aries. The MOON’s color is silver. Use silver candle stick holder or put dimes, quarters or silver dollars on the alter and wear silver jewelry.

Libra rules the skin, small of the back and kidneys and adrenals. Cleansing and toning herbs are angelica, thyme, burdock and bearberry.  The Moon rules the breasts, the left eye, the lymph, bodily fluids and saliva, ovaries. If you have any problems with these areas bring them into your meditation, and use Reiki to amplify the healing energy.

Begin by smudging yourself first.  Light your candles.  One for each direction. Always move clockwise whatever tradition you use. I start in the East, other traditions start in the South.

Call in the four elements and the four direction into your sacred circle.

Call in the four Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Ariel, Raphael in the same order..and yourself as one equal entity, half of the other. Muslims and Jews, Catholics and atheists, men and women, straights and gays.  See the wholeness of self and other as yin and yang, the polarity which is necessary for all of life. Feel the respect and the peace as each discovers how necessary and needed and loved the other is.

HEALING AND CLEANSING MAGIC

With your intentions, use the eclipsed moon’s light to cleanse and purify any residual conscious and unconscious memories, from past, future lives and present life karma which is keeping you from loving yourself completely. Ask to release any blocks and fears of intimacy which keep you from being in a committed relationship.

Take your time. Ask to bring yourself into a place of total harmony, peace and love, firmly rooted in the middle way or pillar of justice.

Sense your heart reborn anew, lighter, clearer in its original purity.

Now visualize your heart weighed against Maat’s ostrich feather and watch until your heart comes into a perfect balance with that white feather on her scales of justice. Stay with this energy.

Be in this as long as you need. Meditate and ask what you need to do now. At the end of your meditation always thank the elements and spirits and close your circle. Write down visions, feelings and questions.

Blessings,   TARA
