The Total Lunar Eclipse of April 14 (10PM PST) and 15th (1AM EST) is a sight to behold. Like so much in astrology right now, this is rare but it's even bigger than that! There are 4 blood moons in total coming! It's a "sign" according to many religions.
This foretells of a dramatic historical change. But even more interesting is that as rare as a blood moon is, it also falls on Passover/Easter, but there are FOUR of them over the next year falling on Jewish Feast Days! October 8, 2014 (feast of the Tabernacles), April 4, 2015 (passover) and Sept 28, 2015 (feast of the Tabernacles). This is beyond coincidence and is in keeping with massive changes other planets predict during this time as well. And if that isn't enough, there is a total Solar Eclipse April 29th - where the sun goes "black" in the sky.
To quote the Bible: "'when you see these signs - the end of this age is coming."
Even the Talmud has something to say about this: "When the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel. If its face is as red as blood, (it is a sign that) the sword is coming to the world." The 1492 Blood Moon expelled the Jews from Spain.(But then Columbus discovered America, which was to become a safe haven for Jews.) Other blood moons were 1948 (Statehood for Israel and the War of Independence) and 1967 - the Six Day War which returned Jerusalem to the State of Israel. This is the 8th time in history the blood moon has fallen on the First Day of Passover - and it will happen again next year!
But you could also argue lots of other things happened on those dates, like 1967 was the height of the Hippie movement that changed America forever. But rest assured, with Pluto and Uranus and Jupiter and Mars creating a Cardinal grand cross next week, the Universe is sending us a message, and the message is quite simple. It's time to change the world as it is now. Compassion is key. And if you are not part of the change, you will be part of the destruction.
I remember once Gail King, Oprah's best friend, said (and I am paraphrasing what I remember so forgive me if it's not completely accurate) "Oprah is climbing up the ladder, always ahead of us, with one hand held down to help bring the rest of us up with her." It made me cry. She brought herself up from nothing, made an impact on the world few have ever done, and never forgot to help others. This is how we all must be. What is feminine must be embraced, regardless of your gender. It is the time of the feminine energy. All of the feminine asteroids (there are male ones too) are caught up in this two weeks of intense transits. It's about opening our hearts to our softer side. Caring is not weakness. Our hearts must be BALANCED. Equal doses of the masculine and feminine. Being selfish no longer works, the mantras of the 1980's are dead, as the Universe is coming to our shores to settle accounts. Karma is coming for you.
Open our hearts and love each other. It's really that simple, but so hard to do in a world that has embraced so many bad qualities as acceptable. Step out of the pack, be heard, don't tolerate or sit in silence anymore. If you have a lot of resources, use them for the betterment of all. If you are struggling, be thankful everyday for what you do have and get involved in your community to promote change and open doors for yourself and others.
Pluto goes retrograde on the 14th too. It stays that way until Sept. Look within, explore your depths. The Universe keeps asking, are you answering and taking action? Go with the flow and it won't be so bad, fight it and it will hurt like hell.
April 15th is the Eclipse in full, and the Moon is in Scorpio - conjuncting Saturn later in the day inflames the Saturn transit in scorpio. I suspect something is going to happen around this time that will give us all pause. A hard emotional lesson of some kind. I hope its not as potent as it looks. My fantasy is that Arch Angels will come down and hover in the skies, and speak to us about High Spiritual Truths and the missions we have been assigned during these times. Are you ready? I am!! :))
The Sabian symbol for this transit is amazing.:
"An eagle and a large white dove, turning into one another". You can be strong and still be soft. Balance.
