8 Shocking Moves You Could Make at the Libra Lunar Eclipse

The Libra total lunar eclipse on April 15, 2014 could change all of your relationships forever.

Buckle up: on Tuesday, April 15 there’s a total lunar eclipse in Libra, the sign of partnerships and commitment. Your interpersonal affairs department is about to buzz with activity! Eclipses are game-changers that bring swift and surprising events. Since this one falls at a full moon, it can bring sudden closure or manifestation of events in a key relationship.

Plans could change abruptly, leading your life and relationships in a whole new direction. Caution: eclipses can be disorienting. So even if this eye-opening event makes your next moves blindingly clear, you may still want to wait a few days for the dust to settle before making major announcements or decisions. However, eclipses can change the landscape so quickly, we don’t really get that chance.

Here are 8 of the most surprising shifts the eclipse could bring to your world:

1. You’ll have a life-changing conversation.

Lunar eclipses are like giant celestial spotlights, bringing everything  out into the open. An authentic, air-clearing talk could remove barriers between you and an important person, even if it’s shocking or uncomfortable. Embrace the opportunity for truth-telling, especially if it brings you both back to balance.

2. You’ll meet your soulmate.

Since this eclipse is in your relationship house, you could meet “the One” right out of the blue—and when you least expect it. So before you turn your nose up at the flirty maitre’d, bark at the person walking too slowly in front of you, or forget to graciously thank the person who holds the door for you, keep that in mind.

3. You’ll recognize that the person you’re already with truly is your soulmate.

Sometimes, it takes the blinding light of a lunar eclipse to reveal what probably should have been obvious, but until now, just wasn’t.

4. Or that he/she definitely isn’t.

See item #3.

5. You’ll be offered an opportunity too good to pass up.

Since Libra is the sign of contracts, the eclipse could bring a kamikaze round of “let’s make a deal.” You may feel rushed to sign on the dotted line, so be sure to ask as many questions as you can, even if you have to fire them off at warp speed.

6. You’ll suddenly back out of a deal.

You know that incredible, one-in-a-million offer you were about to seize? Yeah, it turns out it’s not really all that. You might suddenly wake up with the dreaded but utter certainty that this “perfect” scenario is totally not for you. Whew, you just dodged a bullet.

7. You’ll see yourself as others do.

During a lunar eclipse, the Earth is exactly between the sun and the moon (known as an opposition between the Sun and the moon). For a brief spell, we can see the Earth’s shadow turning the luminous full moon intense shades of reds, browns and grays. According to astrology, lunar eclipses give us a glimpse into what Carl Jung referred to as the “shadow self.” We all want to think of ourselves as good, kind people, but c’mon—we’re also human! What we discover about ourselves and others during lunar eclipses can be tough to swallow, even shocking. Still, this gives us the opportunity to embrace our wholeness, and see where we have room to grow in new directions.

8. You’ll forgive someone and move on.

Is bitterness, an unsnuffed torch or unresolved anger keeping you locked into an emotional web with someone? Even if you’ve long since moved on in real life, you could remain chained to this person by your obsessing, ruminating and rehashing of the past. The eclipse has a zero-tolerance policy for this life-wasting melodrama. It’s time to make like Adele Dazeem and “let it go, let it go.” Travoltra-fy that s*** and don’t look back.
