Spring has arrived, and so has eclipse season. An eclipse occurs when one celestial body passes into the shadow of another, causing a temporary dimming or blocking of the light. Eclipse seasons will typically happen twice a year, roughly six months apart, due to the alignment of the Sun, Earth, and Moon. I know what you’re thinking, what’s the difference between a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse? Solar eclipses happen when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, casting a shadow on the Earth's surface. This is equivalent to a *really* potent new moon, as the Moon's shadow is cast directly onto the Earth, temporarily obscuring the Sun from view. Lunar eclipses, on the other hand, occur when the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon, with the Earth's shadow falling on the Moon. Where a solar eclipse resembles the energy of the new moon phase, the lunar eclipse is equivalent to a supercharged full moon. Solar eclipses are a representation of new beginnings, while the lunar eclipse brings powerful endings.

On March 25, just days after the Spring Equinox, there will be a lunar eclipse via 5 degrees of Libra at exactly 3:00 a.m. EST. For reference on what could manifest for you between now and the next six months (especially when considering the long-term effects of an eclipse), think back to the solar eclipse in Libra that took place on October 14, 2023. When looking back at how you’ve evolved emotionally and spiritually, it’s important to consider relationship themes as we refer to the essence of Libra. What has come into balance since? As previously mentioned, a lunar eclipse ushers in life-altering changes, but given the influence of the full moon phase, there could also be a sense of completion. Something else to remember is the South Node—what we’re collectively purging and releasing—as it is also transiting the sign of Libra. Reflect on how you’ve grown and the wisdom you’ve obtained regarding relationships, especially when considering Venusian themes such as love, sex, and relationships.

In astrology, Libra’s archetype is symbolic of “the other.” It is essentially a mirror of what we project outward to the world around us. This includes what we look for, long for, and assume when it comes to other people, as it is inevitably a reflection of what we’re looking for in ourselves. The essence of the South Node can also speak about the darker attributes of Libra, which can emphasize themes of codependency and/or comparison. With Venus in Pisces—the love planet’s exaltation—sitting in close proximity to Saturn in Pisces—just a few days after both planets made a conjunction—this could signal a moment of maturity and wisdom, specifically when it comes to setting boundaries for ourselves, and our relationships. Thanks to Father Time (Saturn), this is giving “you reap what you sow” as old cycles and patterns are wrapping up. 

Powerhouse Pluto—the planet of death, rebirth, transformation, and all that is hidden beneath the surface—will also be a key player throughout this eclipse, as it will form a sextile to the sun in Aries and a trine to the moon in Libra. In addition to bringing something to the surface, this dynamic synergy is helping us uncover unique parts of ourselves, especially when regarding our relationship dynamics.By facing the dark side of our relationship patterns, we can step into our fullest expression.

In the meantime, read on for your full moon lunar eclipse horoscope and reflection:

Brace yourself, Aries! March's lunar eclipse is touching down on your 7th house of relationships, signaling a time of significant transformation and revelations when it comes to your interpersonal connections. This eclipse, intensified by Pluto's trine (via your 11th house) catalyzes profound shifts in your social spheres, urging you to reassess your alliances and friendships, as well as your role within them. Venus  (ruler of this eclipse) is also with your planetary ruler (Mars) in Pisces via your 12th house, simultaneously heightening your sensitivity and compassion. Lunar Eclipse Reflection: Are your relationships serving your growth and evolution, or are they inhibiting you from fully tapping into your authenticity?

The first lunar eclipse of 2024 is casting its transformative energy on your dutiful 6th house of health and day-to-day routines, signaling a time of transformation and enlightenment. Keep in mind that with Mars and Venus in Pisces (via your 11th house of associations, community affairs, and individual freedom), outside sources can also contribute to your routines, whether virtually or in person. Pluto in Aquarius (via your 10th house of authority) is simultaneously encouraging you to reassess your ambitions and professional trajectory.  Embrace this opportunity for growth and evolution. Lunar eclipse reflection: How can you better balance your work schedule and wellness routines? Are your actions in alignment with your longterm visions?

Step into your power, Gemini. A glimmering lunar eclipse in Libra sparks a whirlwind of creativity and self-expression for you, signaling profound shifts in your approach to pleasure, romance, and passion projects. Moreover, with Mars and Venus in Pisces (via your 10th house) of career, reputation, and sense of authority, your professional ambitions can merge seamlessly with your artistic endeavors, but do you trust it? Reflect on how you can integrate your unique talents into your professional journey, stepping into your authenticity with confidence and purpose. Lunar eclipse reflection: Are you ready to embrace the full spectrum of your creative abilities, and allow it to guide you toward success in your personal and professional life?

It's time to go within, Cancer.  A lunar eclipse will touch down on your 4th house of home, family, and innermost feelings, heralding profound shifts when it comes to your emotional foundations. With Mars and Venus in Pisces (via your ninth house of belief systems and unknown territory), your desire for adventure and higher education could contribute to a sense of expansion and exploration in your personal life. Also, with the influence of Pluto in Aquarius (via your 8th house intimate unions), consider this an opportunity to deepen your emotional bonds and potentially uncover hidden truths within your intimate connections. Lunar eclipse reflection: How can you cultivate a deeper sense of security within your home and family life? What subconscious patterns are ready to be brought into the light for healing and transformation?

A sparkling lunar eclipse in Libra illuminates your 3rd house, igniting a flurry of mental activity and breakthroughs in communication. This celestial event heralds profound shifts in how you express yourself, connect with others, and perceive the world around you. With Mars and Venus in Pisces gracing your 8th house, your passions run deep, and your desires for intimacy and transformation are no exception. Additionally, Pluto in your 7th house prompts you to delve into the depths of your relationships, uncovering hidden dynamics and catalyzing profound transformations. Embrace this lunar eclipse as an opportunity to express yourself authentically, communicate your needs and desires with clarity. Lunar eclipse reflection: How can you use your words to deepen your connections and foster greater intimacy in your relationships?

Reconnect with your core values, Virgo. This month's lunar eclipse is casting a light on your stability-seeking second house of finances, creature comforts, and sense of self-worth. This signals a time of transformation, specifically regarding how you perceive and cultivate abundance in your life. Meanwhile, with Mars and Venus in Pisces (via your partnership sector), your intuition and compassion contribute to your relationship dynamics and financial commitments moving forward. Pluto in your 6th house is also prompting you to consider the undercurrents of your day-to-day life, specifically the dark side and/or power dynamics surrounding your habits. Lunar eclipse reflection: How can you cultivate a deeper sense of abundance and self-worth in your personal and professional life? What practical steps can you take?

This penumbral lunar eclipse has your name on it, Libra. Embrace this event as an opportunity for introspection and transformation, specifically regarding your sense of self and approach to others. With Mars and Venus in Pisces illuminating your 6th house, your focus shifts towards refining your daily routines and nurturing your well-being. Additionally, Pluto in your 5th house brings emphasis to the dark side of your creative expression and heart's desires, although children (or your inner child) could also be included. Call your energy back. Lunar eclipse reflection: What are your one-on-one connections contributing to your personal and professional life? How are your relationship dynamics impacting your overall growth?

The balance you seek is already within you, Scorpio. This month's lunar eclipse sets the stage for profound introspection and spiritual growth, as it graces your mystical 12th house of closure, surrende,r and healing. While Luna urges you to delve into the depths of your emotional psyche and subconscious mind, Mars and Venus in Pisces ignite your creative energy and fuel your passions. Your modern ruler (Pluto in Aquarius) also brings focus to your emotional foundations, allowing you to confront underlying issues within your home and family. Lunar eclipse reflection: Are you ready to open your heart to this new chapter? Do you trust and allow your intuition to guide you toward personal fulfillment and success?

A radiant lunar eclipse activates your 11th house of associations and community affairs, bringing profound shifts to your social circles and visions of the future. Sparking a surge of inspiration and enlightenment, the next six months could be incredibly transformative for your goals and dreams. With Mars and Venus in Pisces, there is greater emphasis on your home and family, which can contribute to you creating a supportive foundation for your future. Pluto (via your third house of communication) will also harmonize with the moon, highlighting what is transforming and resurfacing in your immediate environment, perhaps an opportunity to speak your truth. Lunar eclipse reflection: Is your community and social network propelling you toward success? Are your current priorities in alignment with your ideal future?

Take a stand, Capricorn. The first lunar eclipse of the year is activating your 10th house of career, reputation, and sense of authority, signaling profound shifts in your public image and professional trajectory. This celestial event inspires you to pursue ambitious partnerships with purpose while Mars and Venus bring forth intuition and creativity into your immediate surroundings and communication style. Embrace your innate ability to convey ideas with depth and charm. Additionally, Pluto in Aquarius (via your second house) encourages you to re-evaluate your values and resources, empowering you to improve your financial stability moving forward.
Lunar eclipse reflection: How can you leverage your professional image and partnerships to achieve your long-term career goals and financial security?

An outdated belief system is falling away, Aquarius. This is especially true with this month's lunar eclipse touching down on your ninth house of expansion, philosophy, and unknown territory. Everything from your personal outlook on relationships to your desire for adventure could be of greater emphasis at this time. Also, with Mars and Venus in your second house of values, you could find yourself feeling more compassionate in the realm of finances, while others of you lean on your creativity to explore new money-making abilities. Pluto in your sign continues to empower you, as you are in the midst of a profound transformation, so don't be afraid to assert your individuality if needed. Lunar eclipse reflection: What new beliefs and perspectives are you ready to embrace as you navigate this period of expansion and growth? What path are you fully committed to?

A super potent lunation is igniting your eighth house of intimacy, shared resources, and other sources of income, signaling a time of deep introspection, particularly in the realm of your interpersonal connections, as well as your energy exchanges. Meanwhile, with Mars and Venus in your sign, your personal magnetism and charisma are skyrocketing, allowing you to navigate these changes with grace and compassion. Granted, with Pluto in Aquarius (via your 12th house), you are simultaneously shedding old patterns and projections brought upon by your community that no longer resonate with you. Lunar eclipse reflection: What aspects of your relationships and financial dynamics are ready to undergo transformation and renewal during this intense period of introspection and growth?
