This Eclipse carries multiple layers of symbols and meanings all of which teach us what needs to be worked on and with.
At the most powerful degree of LIBRA, the Blood Moon at the 15th degree symbolizes that this eclipse is all about relationships; peace, harmony, beauty, balance, justice. All about seeing oneself in others. The I-thou relationship is clearly marked. We are all one blood. The Full Moon itself is always a symbol of a fertilized ovum, as the Moon and women’s menstrual cycles are synchronized in natural harmony. This TOTAL eclipse further amps up the meaning and the unconscious sexual instinct to mate, to procreate, an ancient biological necessity. It symbolizes a huge fertile, creative potential to the LIBRAN energy of a new masculine and new feminine and to bring them into a balanced relationship of equals; loving, respecting, sharing and caring for each other and the world.
The Blood MOON Total Eclipse occurs during the weekend of Passover and Easter combining the archetypal energies of two of the major world religions. In the Passover story, lambs’ blood was put on the doorposts so that the first born sons were not killed. Passover is an ancient Jewish celebration and remembrance of freedom from slavery. Easter is the archetypal symbol of Jesus Christ, as the Sun willingly sacrificing himself and being reborn as a symbol for all humans of eternal life. We can be resurrected now into a new life.
LIBRA’s symbol the scales originate from the ancient Egyptian Goddess MAAT’s golden scales of justice and karma. The archetypal myth is that after death, the human heart is weighed against Maat’s crown of an ostrich feather. If the heart is heavier than the feather, then the soul must return to earth to continue to work on its’ issues until it completes and lets go of its emotional baggage and achieves the requisite, light as a feather heart. This is the key and it’s a beautiful symbol.
The eclipse occurs on the 4th of the 4th and we are working with the four main elements at this eclipse. The realm of the mind, LIBRA air element. The MOON, feelings, water, and the FIRE element of spirit, the Sun in ARIES, the partner of the Moon. LIBRA is ruled by VENUS and she is strong in her Earthy sign of Taurus. There are four directions, the number four is a foundation. It symbolizes POWER.
Tarot, Kabbalah and CELTIC correspondences. LIBRA is symbolized by the Trump of JUSTICE which is the 11th key of the Tarot. Its color is emerald green. Its sound is F#. The symbol means an ox goad. The Hebrew letter is lamed. Aries is the symbol of THE EMPEROR TRUMP # 4. The Emperor is doubly proclaiming loudly. Aries is the new beginning in being the responsible wise leader of your own life. Aries is the I AM principle.
The Emperor’s color is scarlet. His tone C natural. His symbol means a window. His letter is Heh.
In CELTIC tree lore tradition this time of year is ruled by the ALDER tree. She is connected to water, to Bran, the raven, bringer of magic, Odin’s bird. LIBRA is connected with two trees. The bramble, a vision bringing plant, and IVY which represents the rebirth of all souls. Ivy symbolizes imagination, she is evergreen, related to Bacchus or Dionysus. This fits for the Easter symbolism as well.
