Dear Friends, 

The Tetrad Lunar Eclipse means this one is the fourth in a series of Total Eclipses of the Moon 6 months apart. The first one was April 15th, 2014 in Libra joined with Mars retrograde stimulating our need to look at relationships. The second one was on October 8th, 2014 in Aries joined with the Planet Uranus. This one was showing who we are in relationships and what may require a change. The third one was April 4th 2015 in the middle of Libra in opposition to Uranus and square to Pluto. This would corner us in some way to face what needs our attention in all relationships. This one on the 27th of September 2015 is the final one of the four and it is at 4 degrees Aries and is keeping company with the asteroid Vesta. The energy of Vesta is devotion, dedication, constancy, conviction, self discipline and truth. This is bringing out the shadow or hidden side of who we are. The Sun in Libra is joined with the asteroid Juno. The energy of Juno is all about marriage, partnership and relationship. The need to understand our differences and meet each other half way. This Lunar Eclipse brings the need to have equality in relationships. Underlying issues may reveal the deeper connection between relationships and money.


A Full Moon which happens every 29.6 days is a time to release the energy that has built up over time and let go of what has run its course or requires a shift. A Lunar Eclipse is a Full Moon that opens a portal so we can receive higher consciousness and we can move forward with more awareness. This Lunar Eclipse in Aries is all about you being more effective, aware, and conscious. It is all about you anyway and the choices you have made and the circumstances that have occurred in the process. This Lunar Eclipse in Aries is revealing to you who you are and what you have to show for it. This brings a shift so you can move forward in a healthier, happier, and more fulfilling way. A Full Moon affects us for a couple of weeks a Lunar Eclipse affects us for 6 months.

This Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Aries is ruled by Mars and Mars is at two degrees of Virgo. Virgo is the sign that rules the rituals and routines of our daily life. How we eat, how we work, and how well we adjust to what life throws at us. Mars is stimulating this sign encouraging you to step it up. Work on doing the things everyday that supports your physical well-being. Mars is opposite Neptune at 7 degrees of Pisces. This adds a little twist. Your inner spiritual and psychological health and well-being is also emphasized. You need to build into your daily practice quiet time. This may be a good time to meditate on a regular basis to balance the external activity. A little faith in yourself and the process helps considerably. Jupiter is in Virgo giving us the education and philosophy to live a more balanced life.

We also had a New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Virgo two weeks ago that will affect us for a couple of years. Obviously we have to do the work. Mercury is retrograde in Libra giving us insights that help in bringing about balance. Mercury retrograde is square to a stationing Pluto. Pluto has just resumed direct motion after being retrograde since April. There is some ultimatum here demanding that you get a grip. Our social skills and relationships are a big part of what is going on now. You must be kind and be aware of how your attitude towards others affects your life. Aries is who we are and Mars in Virgo is showing us if we are capable of practicing what we preach.

Jupiter went into Virgo on August 11th to be there for 13 months. Jupiter educates us through experience and develops a greater understanding of the world around us. Virgo is the sign of the Zodiac that has to do with what you do in life on a daily basis. It is how you apply what you have learned. In other words, “do you practice what you preach?” All you have learned over the years now needs to be applied. You need to own who you are by the way you perform everyday. It is can’t be every once in a while it is a way of life. Jupiter expands and we become aware. Your work and health are requiring learning new techniques to keep you in the game.

Mercury went retrograde in Libra on September 17th, the day that Saturn left Scorpio to move into Sagittarius. When Saturn left Scorpio the message was get control of yourself and your finances. Whatever is brought up for you at this Full Moon is being interpreted by Mercury in Libra. It is about relationships and the need for balance. The need to balance your spending with the need to sustain and take care of what you have. You get the information and then when Mercury goes direct on October 9th you get the solutions. You work things out. Mercury will stay in Libra until November 2nd. This gives us ample time to negotiate with ourselves or others to get things moving the way they work best.

This Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Aries brings the need for you to step into and own who you are. It is a retrieval of self. You have connected all the dots and the picture is clear now do it.


This is a symbol of the inviolability of man's essential nature throughout every ramification of his experience, as long as he holds to the purity of his original impulses. There is here a very practical balance in his self-fulfillment, thanks to his threefold individuality in terms of skills, loyalties and values. Light rather than darkness remains the goal of his life, and his personal capacities become a continual refinement of every baser metal in selfhood. The keyword is ZEAL. When positive the degree is creative transformation of everything into an expression of enduring idea and a reflection of the real vision ahead, and when negative, blissful obliviousness to all normal or everyday considerations. “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
