LUNAR ECLIPSE occurring April 4th, 2015

The Lunar Eclipse occurring April 4th brings in a fast-moving pace necessitating quick shifts in your emotional body in order to use the opportunities presented. Benefit will come when you choose the path of “playing fair” and bringing balance to all areas of your life – especially in your relationships.

Balance means a dynamic of equal give and take and this Eclipse brings awareness to situations where you are giving more than you’re receiving, or vice versa. On the one hand, you may have a pattern of “playing the martyr” – sacrificing your own needs and desires, and over-giving to people who are not reciprocating in kind. Naturally, this co-dependent pattern drains your vitality and your capacity to love.

At the opposite extreme, you may habitually discount others’ feelings and act in ways that are selfish and unfair to them. By taking more than you are willing to give, you alienate people and end up feeling isolated and lonely.

In either situation, you’re learning about fairness, whether that means learning to be more fair to yourself or to another. You’re also learning about interdependence – how to collaborate, cooperate and negotiate in partnerships, honoring the other person’s needs and desires without sacrificing your own integrity and authenticity.

Things to watch for: Sidestep the temptation to make assumptions about what other people want and need and to withhold your own thought processes. The key to successfully navigating this Eclipse is open communication. When both parties openly share their opinions and insights, a more intelligent decision can be made and it will be easier to create a win-win outcome.
