April 2015 Lunar Eclipse - Tricksters and transformation

April 4th at 5:01 am EST we have a total Lunar eclipse ! This one follows the

 total Solar Eclipse of March 20th. These are like book ends of a transformation

process. You may have noticed how much has come up to your awareness in the

 past two weeks.  You have likely felt waves of new wonderful energy mixed with some awakenings that may have been a surprise, shock or relief.  You are definitely not

 alone in this.

This eclipse falls at 14' Libra which means it is sitting on the fixed star of

Algorab - the crow

. According to this great article on 


"This lunar eclipse falls on the notorious fixed star Algorab which has quite

 a fearsome reputation. As I said in the Libra decan 2 post “it’s all wrapped 

up in finest Venusian silk! This is where victims of the crafty crow come

 unstuck. You can see your opponents from the more obviously aggressive 

decans coming. But you just don’t expect such a low down and dirty attack

 from your divinely adorable Libra decan 2. Never, ever, ever underestimate

 Libra decan 2, even if they look like Barbie. A lot of them will play dumb deliberately. Gold-diggers and gigolos abound here…”

Crows are thought to be tricksters in the totem tradition as well. They are very

 clever.  They can use tools, create and play games, and remember a human by

 face...and they have  a long memory. The crow tends to show up when you are

 about to undergo a big transformative period that often involves some sort of

death and rebirth aspect.  Since we are dealing with trickster energy in this coming eclipse, stop and think of where you may be allowing yourself to be fooled. We may  be

 shown a blind spot - and it could liberate us or disappoint us depending on how

 awake we have been to it in the first place.

This New Moon will be conjunct the North Node, opposing the Sun, Mercury and

 Uranus, and Square Pluto - which by now you're used to hearing about. This means that

whatever conflict - inner or outer may arise, power is a part of this equation. One

 party or side of you wants control, and the other wants to break free. The North

Node on this moon affirms that you will be following your inner guidance in the

RIGHT way if you trust your body and your emotions over anything else. Your

 body will tell you what is the right thing for you to do.

Overall I am sensing a great relief with this eclipse. There is a sense of unfinished

 business, and a shoe to drop - not in a bad way, more like a "hurry up and get it

over with " feeling.  Just be honest with yourself no matter what happens and

allow this shift to happen. Your life will open up and the year is set in motion

for the Goat.
