April 4, 2015 Red Blood Moon
Since the time man started to parse the heavens, we’ve used the stars as an excuse to proclaim God’s (or gods’) righteousness will descend upon us on such and such a date.
Wikipedia tells us:
The idea of a “blood moon” serving as an omen of the coming of the end times comes from the Book of Joel, where it is written “the sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of theLORD comes.” This phrase is again mentioned by Saint Peter during Pentecost, as recorded in Acts, although Peter says that date, not some future date, was the fulfillment of Joel’s prophecy. The blood moon also appears in the book of Revelation chapter 6 verses 11 – 13,  where verse 12 says ” And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood.”
The Blood Moon Prophecy is a theory studied and taught by some Christian ministers, such as John Hagee and Mark Biltz, which states that an ongoing tetrad (a series of four consecutive lunar eclipses—coinciding on Jewish Holidays—with six full moons in between, and no intervening partial lunar eclipses) which began with the April 2014 lunar eclipse is a sign of the end times as described in the Bible in Acts 2:20 and Revelation 6:12.
It is true that eclipses have been used for thousands of years for prophecy. However end times thousands of end-time prophecies, whether divined from the stars or biblical study, have not held up. There is a reason for this. The world is not going to end. And if you are so inclined toward Christian thought, the kingdom of heaven is within you, (so taught the master.) There is no good in looking without for what you have in your own heart.
Now what I can tell you is that this particular Blood Moon’s theme is about relationships. As symbolized in the Aries Sun/Libra Moon dynamic, we need to learn to balance our own needs with the needs of others. This is an especially potent symbol because the planet Uranus sits in Aries in middle degrees, dominating anything caught in 6 degrees to 26 degrees of Aries (because Beth is a wide orb girl. It works, so be quiet.) Uranus is the planet that is here to guide us in developing our true and unique gifts to the world. To do this, we must shed the mantel of herb mentality, and claim our right to be our own person. Of course, this process often subjects us to backlash from others who do not want to upset the status quo. Uranus in Aries calls us to be a warrior in claiming our individuality.
But few people can do this in a vacuum. We all have people in our lives that expect certain things from us. Our children deserve our support, our mates can’t be left out in the cold, our bosses still need to get the job done, whatever that job is. So when we step out of our roles we risk upsetting the equilibrium of others.
How then do we honor our obligations to others, while developing new aspects to ourselves?
If you don’t have your chart, go here to punch in a few bits of information, and get a listing of planets and houses in plain English. These are the issues extant for the next six months.
Eclipse in first house/seventh house—Your desire to spread your wings finds little support in the workplace or in your home. Guard against impetuous moves and speaking rashly. This is one time to exercise diplomacy. Okay, you have to develop some diplomatic skills first, but that is rather the points.
Eclipse in the second/eight house—Resources are the issue, and you aren’t inclined to the “mine, yours and ours philosophy.” Either you or the other person wants it all. Regardless of what end of the axis you are on, play a waiting game until aspects favor an equitable distribution. That’s only fair, right?
Eclipse in the third/ninth house—Issues revolving around communications, travel and communication crop up. These may revolve around your health, or the health of others. You may have to make a short trip to visit a sick relative.
Eclipse in the fourth/tenth house—The stresses of work and home hit doubly hard. The proverbial cow pucks hits the fan. Drastic changes are needed to restructure your working agreements with other. While you don’t let others dictate all terms, try to add some give to that take.
Eclipse in the fifth/eleventh house—Confusing friends as lovers and lovers as friends is apt to cause trouble. You might find yourself in a situation that is difficult to resolve. People don’t want to let go, and that is a problem. Keep your pants zips and your intentions above board.
Eclipse in the sixth/twelfth house—People hide essential information from you or you hide it from others. This might be a time were you land in the hospital or hide a health condition and don’t tell other people. Or they do it to you. While there is virtue in being a rugged individualist don’t be surprised if people are angry because you aren’t forthcoming.
