Mystical Super Blue Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse

The lunar eclipse on Wednesday will happen and look spectacular in some parts of the world like large parts of US, north Eastern Europe, Russia, Asia, the Indian Ocean, the Pacific, and Australia, but it will not be visible in the UK.  What a complicated name for it. Well, it is a very rare configuration not seen since 31 March 1866, over 150 years ago. We are lucky to be alive for such a rare configuration. Our ancestors would have been open to mystical changes during eclipses, because civilisations were closer to nature before we evolved to technologies. Today we have the opportunity to find wisdom from the present and our historical past.

A super moon means that physically the moon will be very close to Earth and will appear bigger than usual. A blue moon is when it is the second full moon in a particular month, a term first penned by Shakespeare to mean something that just doesn’t happen very often i.e. rare. And a blood moon can refer to the reddish colour that accompanies a lunar eclipse when it sits in the shadow of Earth. We have heard the term ‘Blood Moon’ a lot recently so it is interesting to note that the full moon in the month of October is also sometimes called a Blood Moon in many North American cultures. October was usually when hunters spent time hunting game and preparing meat for the coming winter. The October Full Moon is also known as Hunter's Moon or Harvest Moon. The term Blood Moon is also sometimes used to refer to four total lunar eclipses that happen in the span of two years; a phenomenon that astronomers call a lunar tetrad. This occurrence happened most recently in 2014-2015 and it is very rare, the next time should be 2032-2033.

So we won’t see the moon as either a blue or reddish. It will appear like a normal to large full moon because the eclipse happens when it is full and it will be full here in the UK around 1:30 in the afternoon. We will still however still feel the effects of this eclipse with the moon moving through Leo. Change can be scary, and Leo tends to bring things on in a big fiery sort of way, so it’s a good thing to not give in to volatility but rather observe and take in some good conscious breathing space before making any drastic changes but at the same time being prepared to move forward with new positivity. 

Lunar eclipses are felt the same way we feel the ocean tides, cycles. We may not consciously notice the tides if we live far from the ocean but we are still affected by them, take for instance female cycles. It is a good time to internal changes, personal to ourselves. January is the time we make resolutions and that will be strengthened by the effects from this eclipse.
