April 2014 Solar and Lunar Eclipses


April is a big month and if you’re not careful will not be forgotten without a headache!

Not least of all because of the squares and oppositions between Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto but also because of the two eclipses which are also coming into this mix and possibly complicating matters.

So if forewarned is forearmed here are the dates you need to watch out for and a few hints on how you might like to navigate your way through this period.

The first eclipse occurs on April 15 at 3:42 am (Eastern time). This will be a Total Lunar Eclipse and occurs at 26 degrees Libra and may force you to look at the “me” and “us” in a relationship.

In other words where you stand and where the other person stands.


Mercury Retrograde

This period began in October 2013 and no doubt many of you are feeling the effects of it. So how has it been for you? I, for one, can attest wholeheartedly to having a dreadful time during this period.

You name it… I’ve experienced it!

Of course the 2 eclipses also happening during this time have not helped at all. I’ve become an expert at chasing my tail around in circles trying to get things fixed and when one thing seems as if it is sorted another pops up to take its place.



It’s enough to make your hair stand on end!

Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio on October 21, 2013 bringing with it not only the usual culprits of miscommunication, phones, electrical devices, computers going haywire but also a few days before it turns retrograde there is an eclipse on October 18 at 25 degrees Aries and during the retrograde period another eclipse on November 3 at 11 degrees Scorpio.

So with all that in mind you’ll have to be doubly careful in navigating your way through the next few weeks. 

April and May 2013 Solar and Lunar Eclipses from an Astrological Perspective

Starting on April 25 and going through to May 25 we have 3 eclipses due to cross our paths affecting some of us more than others but giving all of us a chance to use the heightened energy of the Sun and Moon that is around at these times.

However you choose to use these important dates keep this in mind. Eclipses tend to have a way of throwing you off your guard, situations may happen that send you reeling and circumstances whether good or bad have a way of showing up in your life in a way that reminds you of fated or coincidental events.

Thanksgiving Solar Eclipse: Nov 25, 2011

Solar Eclipse

They say that a “change is as good as holiday” and it may be wise to meditate on these words this Thanksgiving given that there is an eclipse on the new moon in Sagittarius.  Sagittarius is usually a sign known for its humor and ability to have fun, however, an eclipse is usually anything other than a lot of fun!

Whilst it is true it will affect some of your more than others you can never be sure it will not affect you directly… or indirectly through others.  For example, you may not have many planets which are affected but your partner may and therefore you will be affected as their own issues hit off and you are then left dealing with what you are going to do next.  Sound familiar?
