Lunar Eclipse in Libra: March 25, 2024

A Full Moon occurs when the Sun in Aries forms an opposition to the Moon in Libra. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. Certainly, it can be an emotional time – a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.

This phase of the Moon occurs at 5 degrees and 7 minutes of Libra opposite the Sun at 5 degrees and 7 minutes of Aries.

It’s the third eclipse in a set of six occurring along the Aries-Libra axis from April 20th, 2023, to March 29, 2025. The first one was a Total Solar Eclipse in late Aries. While we’ve been focusing on building our independence and working on assertiveness since April 2023, this March eclipse in Libra prompts us to consider healthy relating and how it affects the process.

This eclipse serves as a prompt, nudge, or push to make improvements in Aries- and Libra-ruled areas of life in our charts, and feelings of discontent can magnify. It’s a time to resolve matters, strike a balance, take a lesson, and move on, but take some time with this–eclipses can temporarily hide a part of our lives for us to focus on another. Ultimately, we should be striving for a balance.

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra: March 2024 (Additional Points)

This eclipse affects people with personal planets and points at 0 to 10 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) most significantly.

Lunar Eclipses are about relationships and polarities. With the Aries-Libra axis involved, this Lunar Eclipse presses us to look more closely at our needs, lacks, and wants concerning the balance between Aries-ruled and Libra-ruled areas of life.

The contrast between fiery, direct, confrontational Aries and logical, tactful, balance-oriented Libra comes full bloom. The energy of the Libra Moon is the awareness of the need for relationships and all that comes with maintaining them — compromising, negotiating, graciousness, and balancing. The Aries Sun, on the other hand, is self-assertive, leading, and personally courageous.

This Full Moon urges us to strike a balance between meeting our personal needs and attending to the needs of a significant other, and between independence or autonomy and dependence or companionability.

The Libra Moon is diplomatic, equality-minded, and fair-minded. The Aries Sun, however, values authenticity over tact, and is energized by independent efforts. The Full Moon illuminates this conflict.

Neglecting either end of the Aries-Libra axis will surely backfire on us. Ideally, a balance should be found between the two energies, and this is what the Full Moon invites us to do.

This Full Moon is about emotional declarations. Something has been building inside of us, likely of a personal nature, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out. Over the coming months, we will discover what this declaration means for us. For now, it’s difficult to sit on our feelings. We need to express them.

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse illuminates the conflict between “me” and “you,” and between autonomy and sharing.

With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic “illumination” occurs in our own lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as there is a sense of emotions bursting forth into our consciousness. It’s time to express ourselves, and to let things out of our systems. Of course, we might want to exercise some care while doing so, knowing that what is coming out of us is new and not particularly rational as yet.

This eclipse is about awakening to the need to enjoy and appreciate our partners or significant others in our lives and to connect with our desire for companionship.

Emotions, feelings, and revelations in the weeks following this eclipse are pivotal–they lead to resolutions.

This is a rewarding Full Moon eclipse, ripe with possibilities and learning experiences. However, it can take some time before we get the whole picture.

A crisis of sorts (which can be a crisis of consciousness) or sudden awareness of a lack in our lives provides us with a golden opportunity to explore our emotional needs within the context of the house polarity where the eclipse occurs in our natal charts.

Relationships may be challenged, broken, or strengthened at this time. Our discovery is emotionally charged and dramatic–everything feels big and larger than life at this time. Epiphanies are likely as we become acutely aware of our lack. This understanding can propel us into affirmative action, although there can be some initial level of chaos.

This is a time to work on clearing up past patterns that have been holding us back from relationship fulfillment.

Revelations coming in can be blown up and dramatic but not discountable since they come from real feelings. With eclipses, we get a strong emphasis on one area of life but a blackout in another area, and it makes sense to wait to make big decisions for when we can see the whole picture.

This Lunar Eclipse can have a way of bringing dysfunctional areas of our lives to our attention. Emotions and realizations feel big. Plans can blossom.

Through events, circumstances, and epiphanies after the time of this eclipse, we learn that we need to get in touch with our needs for a stronger connection to others. To feel fulfilled, we need to acknowledge and embrace our need for others, for balance, and for compromise.

We become aware of where we have been overdoing our independence or “me” focus where it’s come at the expense of our perspective, companionability, and relationships.

Full Moons are always helpful for magnifying pre-existing problems so that we can see where to bring back balance. Our larger work should focus on reaching a good balance. Enlightenment in the weeks following the lunation provides us with a golden opportunity to explore our emotional needs, ultimately leading to positive actions and decisions.
