A on March 23, 2016 a ‘’Blood Moon lunar eclipse in Libra with 3 degrees 17’ will be taking place at 13:47 by İstanbul Time. Lunar eclipses occur when the Earth gets in between the Moon and the Sun blocking the rays of the Sun reflecting from the Moon. Lunar Eclipses always coincide with a Full Moon, and are related with endings and culminations. During lunar eclipses there can be an increase in emotional outbursts, suicide attempts, endings of relationships, problems with the stomach, and hemorrhages/bleeding in operations. Eclipses can bring about unexpected events and surprises. Eclipses are didactic, they actually teach us that one cannot expect to walk before crawling and one cannot run before one walks. Individually, we will be facing problems in areas of life depending on whichever house in our natal charts is affected by the lunar eclipse. Since on such occasion the rays of the Sun imbue the Moon red, this is also called ‘The Blood Moon Eclipse’. In Vedic Astrology, Libra is “Tula”. Tula beckons the point where the soul can shed out the darkness of worldly ravelment behind to step into the spiritual light. Tula is rajastic. The emotional transitions are quite intense and fluctuating. It is hard for them to take a net decision on any matter. They are research oriented people that value love. According to the Vedas, this sign is ruled by VENUS who gives advice to the daemons that have lost their way in the spiritual search. If we are to evaluate the energy of the eclipse with regards to our country and the World in general, accidents in marine lines and airlines, climate changes, epidemics, earthquakes and landslides can increase. Sudden and hard to control instances that change the politic and diplomatic equilibrium can be experienced. We will be facing an eclipse where the stupendous struggle between Good and the Bad will come to surface. In financial matters, the unrealistic approach of swindlers and ill-intentioned persons that are trying to usurp the weaknesses of the people can cause hardships and unwanted results. We are facing an eclipse energy whereby there can be an increase in accidents, assassinations and armed conflict, and matters related to internal security will be susceptible. The ‘Blood Moon’ lunar eclipse that will be taking place in Libra with 3 degrees 17’ at 13:47 by İstanbul Time can lead to strains on matters related to justice, law, the arts, beauty sector, agriculture, entertainment, jewellery, and matters related to women, sudden and unfathomable changes can occur on these matters. The Lunar Eclipse in Libra will be intensely affecting the Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn natives that have a placement of planets in between 0 to 8 degrees. Also the Mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces that have a placement of planets in between the 28 and 30 degrees in their natal charts will also be greatly affected by the eclipse. The people born under these signs can experience various unforeseen extraordinary events. This can be a positive or a negative change, and their attitudes and choices will play part in the outcome. They should be wary of accidents that can occur as a result of incautiousness and haste in the next 10 days following the eclipse.

THE MANTRA THAT YOU CAN RECITE ACCORDING TO VEDIC ASTROLOGY:
‘Mantras are voice energies, and are compounded of arithmetic and numeric values. The resonances they dissipate help reduce the detrimental energies.
‘’ Om Kshirputrayay Vidmahe Amrit Tatvaaye Dheemahi Tanno Chadrah Prachodayat ‘’
Recite 108 times.
‘Our creator is closer to us than our carotid artery; it is our intentions that matters on the path that lead to him. Regardless of which religion, or belief system we may adhere to, it would still exalt and purify us to pray during the Solar and Lunar Eclipses
