Wow! The cosmic energy is quite powerful! From the perspective of "out there" we are upgrading the Energy Templates for our bodies individually and collectively (old souls will have more awareness of this and will more strongly experience of the shifts).
Happening during this incredibly powerful time of the grand cardinal cross, this is an especially testing eclipse season and one in which a lot of people will be making some major changes. In some cases, the changes happening now may seem to come from out of the blue, but in many cases, they have been a long time coming.
More sharp intuition available this week. You are able to step outside your Self and see how others' needs are important. You may feel the urge to be more giving and understanding than usual. This is also a good time for spiritual development.
In the midst of intense energies, self care on every level is so important. Some of us are experiencing a purge right now and it is affecting our energy bodies – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
Many call April 23rd a Gateway; a Portal; a cardinal cross. I suggest we move beyond labels and realize that there is actually an explosion (for lack of a more peaceful term) of high vibrational Light.
This week, within the Eclipse Cycle, we experience a powerful alignment: the Cardinal Grand Cross.
There are many who have written about the astrological perspectives of this alignment, and you can enhance your participation, if you feel inclined, by reading some of those on sites such as Spirit Library.
The recent eclipse is the harbinger of great and profound change on Earth. But, that change begins within each and every soul first. Collectively, change will not be facilitated without first looking within and creating change in one’s own life.
To work with the Eclipse Energies of this first Lunar Eclipse we suggest you make a list of all the feelings that are hard for you. See if you can list 5-10 major themes that throughout your life have been challenging emotionally, like "No one is there for me," or "I love feeling enthusiasm."

This total lunar eclipse occurs in the 26th degree of Libra at 7:47 a.m. GMT. The Sabian Symbol for this degree is an eagle and a white dove turning one into the other. We see here a theme of shape-shifting, reflected also in the darkness cast by a total eclipse at a time when the Moon is at her brightest.
