Lunar Eclipse 2014

Lunar Eclipse 2014

The lunar eclipse on the 15th of April 2014, at 24 degrees of the zodiac sign Libra, has very strong connections to the two most fortunate fixed stars in the sky. With the matriarch planet Ceres laying between the lunar eclipse and these fortuitous stars, we can expect a guiding hand from strong, independent women during the chaotic changes occurring as Grand Cross 2014 approaches.

Lunar Eclipse 2014 Conjunct Arcturus

This lunar eclipse is very close in longitude to the fixed stars Arcturus and Spica. These two bright fixed stars have a similar influence, being the two most fortunate stars of all. However, there is a difference, with Arcturus being somewhat grittier, more apt at dealing with the darker aspects of life on earth, while Spica is more the sweet and innocent type.

It is therefore important to differentiate which of these stars will have the greater influence on lunar eclipse April 2014. As you can see in the table, Arcturus is closer to the Moon than Spica is, by nearly half of one degree. Given this fact, plus the magnitude of Arcturus being greater than that of Spica, it is fair to say that this lunar eclipse is under the spell of the fixed star Arcturus alone.

Arcturus, though very fortunate giving honors and riches, confers a belligerent and quarrelsome nature, and also has a reputation of achieving justice through power. The Arabic name for this star, ‘Al Haris al Samak’, means ‘Protector of the Defenseless One’ (the protector of sweet Spica). Robson says that the Moon conjunct Arcturus gives new friends, business success, good judgment, and domestic harmony.

Making an even closer conjunction to the lunar eclipse is the minor planet Ceres. As she is the mother of the royal family, and placed in the stars as Spica, we could say that this Arcturus lunar eclipse is looking over and protecting Ceres mothers and families.

This does tie in very nicely with the interpretation for Moon with Arcturus, being domestic harmony. Marina has written a post about Moon conjunct Ceres, stating that it represents “the wise elders who pass on their wisdom to their young and who serve as respected mentors.”

Well so far the lunar eclipse suggest a very supportive and nurturing family life, with an emphasis on women, as both the Moon and Ceres represent the mother and nurturing.

But we have to place this in context of the intensely powerful T-Square aspect pattern, involving Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto. “Any restlessness and anxiety cause by Uranus is going to be exacerbated and exaggerated by Jupiter. It is going to be dramatically intensified out of all proportion by Pluto, leading to some sort of crisis.”

With the emphasis on nurturing mother-figures against the backdrop of radical and uncertain changes taking place, it would seem that it is going to be strong women acting as our protectors, giving a supportive and guiding hand through troubling times.

These will not necessarily be your tradition mother-types, as Mercury is conjunct Uranus. We can expect original and unorthodox messages from our matriarchal guides.

With Mercury and Uranus on the fixed star Alpheratz, we can expect these wise women to be strongly independent, just, honorable, and with “considerable psychic power”.
