Happy Super Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse!
Right before the full moon/lunar eclipse takes place the sun will square Uranus and sextile Chiron…something will happen, maybe a new thought, idea…there will definitely be a shift that will help you remove some of the blocks that you have been having…
On the 20th the sun will start making his way into Aquarius And on the 21st, We will have a super full Blood Wolf Moon in Leo at 0 degrees at 9:15 pm Pacific time and 12:15 am est and it will also be a total lunar eclipse, you will have to adjust for your time zone. Now for the first time in 3 years those of us in the United States will be able to witness this total lunar eclipse and according to NASA, it will be one of the most dazzling shows this year. The moon will be at its closest point to earth so the moon will appear somewhat larger than it normally does…as well as being brighter, that’s why they refer to it as a supermoon. Total lunar eclipse moons are also referred to as “blood moons” because when the sun, earth, and moon align, the Sun’s light will pass through the Earth’s atmosphere hitting the moon making it appear red. At around 12:12 am ET, North and South Americans will be sitting in front row seats to witness this spectacular event…weather permitting that is.
Lunar lore According to the Farmer’s Almanac, “In Native American and early Colonial times, the Full Moon for January was called the Full Wolf Moon. It appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages. Traditionally, the January Moon is also known as the Old Moon. To some Native American tribes, this was the Snow Moon, but most applied that name to the next Full Moon, in February.
So for “The first full moon in January, the Wolf Moon, so we will have a “Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse” sounds like a Syfy movie title with witches, werewolves, vampires, and other otherkins doesn’t it?
This is already the 2nd eclipse of the year and we have 3 more remaining ( 2 in July and one in December around Christmas time this year. Now remember this energy will last about 6 mos afterward
As I covered in the last show our ancestors didn’t get out and let this energy physically touch them. Even in Vedic Astrology, they see them as omens as well, showing what challenges lie ahead of them. This is an unusual energy that produces natural disasters, and unnatural, as well as political upheavals.
Interestingly Western astrologers see this energy as an opening, even connecting us to the spiritual realm/ or time to increase our connection.
If you tuned in last week, you probably remember me telling you about my experience with a total solar eclipse that happened August 21, 2017, in Leo. I did experience it, and it was a remarkable sight to behold…but it did change my life. It put me in a place where I would have to look at me and to walk the path of my Soul. Had that experience not happened, I am not sure if I would be sitting here now. So you see, the ones that will have the hardest time with these eclipses are the ones that are having to be pulled by their hair kicking and scream down their path.
Interestingly, Uranus will be challenging this moon, I guess you could say it could bring us opportunities, but Uranus is the rebellious one, so expect the unexpected. Things turning out a bit different than you expected. Don’t be so connected to the outcome of things. This placement could cause mood swings, jumpy, and wanting to act impulsively. You will need patience at this time, as you could possibly be tested, or challenged yourself. The moon is sitting right across from Sun (which is now in Aquarius) south node, pluto mercury and Saturn…all of those planets that are representing us releasing and moving forward with our lives. You could feel restless and bored with the regular routine in your life and want to shake things up, although major changes are not favored at this time.
This eclipse is opposite mercury so you could be receiving some unexpected news, and it could be shocking. This is expected energy and can cause anxiety and stress…many of those worry warts, those people who worry about things all the time, could find themselves stressed out and getting stuck in that chaotic energy. Remember, this is about releasing too. Eclipses, to our ancestors, meant the king must die and this means power changes.
Now at this time, something really interesting is going on that you might not be aware of. You see at this full moon/lunar eclipse we have 2 transitions happening. But first, let me explain what this is exactly. Full moons are when the sun is opposite the sun…and eclipses happen when the sun is close to the south node; opposite the moon is close to the north node.
Now at this event…the Sun will be transitioning into Aquarius and the Moon will be transitioning into LEO…they will both be at 0 degrees.
Just as new moons are about new beginnings, full moons are about endings, and this Leo full moon will be extra powerful.
Leo is our CORE, it is our solar plexus and represents who we ARE. In this stressed/chaotic time we are reminded of our core. We know that there is a lot of work to be done, yes that can really overwhelm us making us bitter to the world. But this LEO super moon is telling us to figure out how to enjoy life while having to do all this work. Leo is about fun and enjoying life. I hear people say all the time that we are in hell here…and I just do not agree with them. To me, we came here to experience this thing called life. I describe life as a game, like Monopoly. There are guidelines, and when you follow the flow of the game (your birth chart) you can be a winner…the trick is to not let it defeat you. I have clients that are in jobs, relationships that they are just not happy in, and those situations are not always the easiest to fix/change/or get out of. LEO’s advice “Sure there may be things you do not enjoy doing and it may be hard work….but don’t let it get the best of you. We have to figure out how to love or enjoy it. Remember the core of it? Why are you in the job you are in? What you are in the relationship you are in? Why is it that you do what you are doing? For jobs, yes it pays your bills, it supports you, it provides the material things for us…remember that. Many employers want to keep you stressed and pushed to the max thinking that will keep you more committed…but they are wrong, actually its the total opposite.
You see, we’re being invited to change our ideas of things. Leo says “yes I know there will be hard work, but you have to learn how to do what you are doing and enjoy it, to remember to nurture you and to invite fun into your life. For those that are in up and down relationships….why are you in it? You love the person…well okay, then what you have been doing isn’t working, so what can you do to make it better? Why are you together? Why are you fighting? What do you truly want? We are being made to face our self. When we deal with Capricorn it is about our public appearance, but with LEO it is all about who we are behind the mask…who are we at the depth of our Soul..our CORE.
This energy is simply saying to us to look at what is not working any longer. If you know something is broke, then fix it. And you’re not going to be able to fix it if you have let it swallow you whole. We have to be able to admit that what we are doing is not working and be open to finding other ways that will. LEO is reminding us that life is to be enjoyed, it is to be experienced. There is much work to be done, and it may suck…but learn how to do what needs to be done and enjoy it..be okay with it, be at peace with it. Beat down people make the best slaves….are you one? Who are YOU?
January 21st mars square Saturn conj pluto…negotiations with others… the root of problems and get solutions. Things may not go as fast as we want them, don’t force them…it will make you slower. Pluto always gets a bad reputation, and I just don’t understand why…he makes you come face to face with yourself so you can do what you need to do to clear the road before you.
It is about having to learn how to do things differently than we have been doing. There are many ways to do something, and if what you are doing is not yielding the results you are wanting…then it’s time to do it differently. You may feel like charging forward, but if you’re not exactly sure where you are going, your plans will fall apart. We can’t charge ahead thoughtless. Take your time…be thoughtful, strategize your movements and harness that energy you are going to need. I am used to burning the candle at both ends…but this energy has been telling..well screaming at us that this type of charge forward and bulldoze everything in your path is not always the best thing for the long haul.
This could regard karmic relationships having to be dealt with…old habits that we have brought into our present from our past.
