“Research suggests that people are typically unaware of the reasons why they are doing what they are doing, but when asked for a reason, they readily supply one.” Daniel Gilbert

Today’s Energy:

The Supermoon “Blood Moon” Eclipse in “action-oriented” Aries (10:50 pm EDT) is an excellent chance for us to become clearer on “connecting the dots” between our actions and why we do the things we do. In theory, a seemingly easy enough task; but in practice, often much more complicated. One reason for this increased self-awareness now is because eclipses tend to spawn more inner illumination, similar to how a Full Moon allows us to see better in the night.

Too, at this time, we may experience epiphanies regarding the need to stop doing things from essentially a state of “mindlessness” without any real conviction or passion – or simply possibly because we want to fit in, please others, or preserve the status quo.

This Lunar Eclipse in Aries accentuates our desire for moving forward, independence, self-assertion, excitement, adventure, discovery, courageous action. Manifestations of “shadow behavior” could include acting impulsively, losing our temper, impatience, self-absorption, a low tolerance for failure or weakness, coming on too strong, engaging in bullying.

Some archetypes energized by this Eclipse: the hero, the warrior, the athlete, the race car driver, the pioneer, the entrepreneur.

Additionally, there may be greater awareness of how our actions (Aries) – or inactions, for that matter – have a corresponding ripple affect on our relationships, especially on our intimate, one-on-one encounters (Libra). With this lunation occurring on the Aries-Libra axis – with the Moon in Aries and the Sun in opposing Libra – we are seeking to balance the needs of “self” (Aries) with the needs of the “other” (Libra). Learning how to relate to others without losing our sense of self. The Aries Moon is more about unbridled self-expression while the Libra Sun is about cooperation or getting along with others. Also, if we go too far in either direction, we risk creating issues for ourselves.

In general, lunar eclipses signify culminations or turning points. They symbolize the building up of something that has to be released, just like how the Moon, in its waning stages, appears to give up its light. Over the course of the next couple of weeks, we will likely become clearer on exactly what it is that we need to let go of, so we can shine brightly again later. Right now, though, it’s very important that we just feel our emotions and see what “revelations” they have for us.

Because this eclipse is occurring at 4 degrees Aries-Libra, those who have planets or important points in their charts from 1 to 7 degrees of any of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn), will likely be most affected. Also, the house axis (or the areas of life) in which the lunation falls, will also be highly energized now.

Saturn, newly-installed in “philosophical” Sagittarius, is trining the Eclipse point, ideally lending maturity and wisdom to our actions now, as well emotional strength. The Eclipse ruler, Mars in Virgo, is also square to Saturn, further suggesting some cautiousness on our part.

Questions for Today: What are you discovering about yourself? About others? What has been your biggest challenge in dealing with people? What would your life look like if you had more self-confidence? How have you been living on autopilot?
