For All Signs: The Passover and Easter traditions have variations in historical details, but they share similarities in spiritual meaning. Each celebrates a homecoming to the spirit. The Passover (April 15) remembers the rebirth of the Jewish community after 400 years of slavery. Easter (April 20) recalls the opportunity for an individual to be reborn or reconnected to an awareness of the spirit, even after periods of isolation. The theme of "rebirth" has been celebrated in every civilization and known by many names. This year's Passover is especially significant because it occurs on a full moon eclipse, which mandates a new enlightenment.
Aries: Your attention is drawn to partnerships. Patterns from your childhood need to be uncovered, repaired or removed in order to allow growth for mature relationships. Psychotherapy may be truly helpful.
Taurus: This Libra eclipse pressures you to concentrate on improving work-related relationships and health maintenance. Diet, exercise and improvement of physical regimen will become imperative. Honing your management systems in personal and work arenas is necessary to create order in your daily routine.
Gemini: This eclipse pattern emphasizes your progeny or other personally creative births. Romantic ventures will be intensely emotional and self-revealing. You will be learning a few lessons in discernment concerning friendships and associations that no longer serve you well.
Cancer: Matters concerning your family and property will be accented. Old problems in relationships, even with the deceased, will surface for cleansing and healing. A new family member may enter the scene, or you may begin to spend more time with family in general.
Leo: The accent of this eclipse cycle will be on travel, education and relationships to siblings, roommates, neighbors, or others who daily traverse your life. Habitual patterns of thought will be brought to consciousness so negative thinking can be corrected. You will be introduced to new practical life skills.
Virgo: You are learning to value yourself in new ways. With that comes education in the management of money and other resources, such as time and energy. There will be less assistance from others in these arenas, but you are creating these resources for yourself.
Libra: Your sense of personal identity will be the subject under consideration. Who are you becoming and who do you need to be? How do you wish to define yourself before the world? You will be learning what is required for you to hold onto your identity while maintaining a rewarding relationship.
Scorpio: The new series of eclipses emphasize your need to create order, both internally and externally. The development of your projects will call upon you to develop faith in your deepest self. Bringing order out of chaos is done on both the inner and outer levels simultaneously, so while you organize files you will be also organizing your mind.
Sagittarius: Your mind and heart are opening to accept a larger circle of friends. You may become a strong supporter of a community network which has shared ideals. Certainly you will continue to have the friendships you have built in the past. Your attention may be focused on goals greater than your own.
Capricorn: The new series of eclipses will bring a certain amount of intensity in the arenas of career, home and family. You will be stretching your worldly boundaries to serve a new group of people. Family relationships will include one loss and one gain.
Aquarius: Legal, ethical or educational issues will be emphasized, along with travel — whether that be of body, mind or spirit. Exposure to those of different backgrounds or cultures opens your heart and expands your philosophy. A challenge concerning siblings, roommates or neighbors may press you to seek a higher road.
Pisces: This new eclipse pattern will emphasize issues of sexuality, intimacy and material accumulation. Reorganization of debt, investments and your estate may be in progress. You may become more conscious than usual about existential matters related to life, death and what is on "the other side" of normal, waking consciousness.
