[1:08] Super Massive Moon Report! The Libra Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is on March 25 (12 midnight PDT) at 5º07’ Libra. This is the second Libra Eclipse in Libra during this Aries/Libra series.

[1:40] This eclipse is part of a series on the Aries/Libra axis (April 2023-March 2025). These eclipses emphasize the need to let go of reliance on others (Libra South Node) and embrace independence and courage (Aries North node).

[2:42] Lunar eclipses always have an impact on relationships, because they happen at a Full Moon when the Sun and Moon are in opposition to each other.

[3:24] Look at the house of your chart where the eclipse point (5º07’ Libra) falls, as well as the planets that are within 1º-9º of Libra, Capricorn, Aries, or Cancer. Past eclipses at this degree, March 23, 2016 (3º17′ Libra) and March 24, 1997 (3º35′ Libra) may hint at important themes.

[4:39] The Sabian symbol for the Moon is 6 Libra, Ideal of a man abundantly crystallized, and the Sun is on 6 Aries, A square brightly lighted on one side. Have standards. Know thyself. Know which imperfections you can live with.

[6:32] This is the Full Moon in a Lunar Phase Family Cycle (LPFC) that began Sep. 25, 2022, with a New Moon at 2º48′ Libra. The First Quarter in this LPFC was on June 26, 2023, and the Last Quarter Moon is on Dec. 22, 2024.

[7:28] Void-of-Course (VOC) Moon Periods. On March 26 (4:09 pm PDT), the Moon in Libra opposes Mercury in Aries. It’s VOC for about 10 hours before it enters Scorpio on March 27 (2:03 am PDT). It’s not always comfortable to stand up for what we feel strongly about, but it is sometimes very important that we do so for our own sense of integrity.

[8:51] On March 29 (8:40 am PDT), the Moon in Scorpio trines Neptune. It’s VOC for just about 4 ¼ hours and then enters Sagittarius (12:52 pm PDT). If you’ve been cautious about trusting others, rest assured, somebody in your circle has earned that trust.

[9:52] On March 31 (5:16 pm PDT), the Moon in Sagittarius squares Neptune. It’s VOC for just under 4 hours and then enters Capricorn (9:05 pm PDT). Take a look at where in your life you have chosen to hold on instead of moving forward on a delightful path.

[11:01] Lunar Eclipse mini-lesson. Lunar eclipses occur at the Full Moon, when the Sun and Moon are in opposition, and are important for relationships.

[11:43] If this eclipse and the one on April 8 aspect sensitive areas in your chart, you may well find that your happy relationship isn’t quite as secure as you might have thought.

[13:15] In particular, with your Sun or Ascendant near 5º07’ Aries and Libra, you are likely to experience critical transitions in romantic partnerships, very close friendships, or business collaborations.

[14:24] With Sun or Ascendant near 5º07’ Taurus or Scorpio, impacts to relationships with co-workers, healthcare associates, service animals, spiritual advisors, hidden enemies, employees and those with whom you have an unequal relationship.

[15:06] With the Sun or Ascendant near 5º07’ Gemini or Sagittarius, changes in relationships with friends, associates, soulmates, creative and political allies, your children and pets, lovers, fans of your creative work, and fellow members of a community.

[15:45] With your Sun or Ascendant near 5º07’ Cancer or Capricorn, this eclipse suggests that there will be changes in your home and career direction.

[16:30] With the Sun or Ascendant near 5º07’ Leo or Aquarius, impacts to relationships with neighbors, siblings, teachers, clergy, and people from foreign backgrounds.

[17:04] With the Sun or Ascendant near 5º07’ Virgo or Pisces, impacts to relationships that involve earnings, possessions, security, shared resources, and physical or psychological intimacy.

[17:45] Eclipses in Houses – Libra and Aries in the 1st – 7th houses: Significant changes in partnerships. Since the first house symbolizes the front door of your life, the unfamiliar and unexpected, relocation is possible.

[19:45] Libra and Aries in the 2nd and 8th houses: security, confidence, self-worth, and support.

[20:53] Libra and Aries in the 3rd and 9th houses: Realizations around education and training, and critical moments with siblings, neighbors, and teachers.

[22:02] Libra and Aries in the 4th and 10th houses: Relocation and/or career change. Relationships with parents. Changes in family obligations.

[23:04] Libra and Aries in the 5th and 11th houses: Creative efforts overlooked or rejected; issues with your children or pet; feeling a strong soulmate connection; falling out of step with friends.

[23:48] Libra and Aries in the 6th and 12th: Reviewing your day-to-day life and how you find respite.
