The gift of a Super Blue Blood Moon!
This is the first Blue Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in 152 years! The last one happened March 31st, 1866.
This special moon is one with a lot of facets and layers. It is a rare moon that is here to help us see the breakthroughs that are happening within us right now. With their bright light, full moons are great for helping to illuminate the things we are ready to see. Pay attention to what is being shown to you, especially if it something that is reoccurring. After all, a blue moon is the name given to a full moon that appears twice in one month. Keep your eyes peeled for themes that emerge. Pay particular attention to anything that happens in threes; the first is pure experience that has an impact, the second is to get your attention, and the third is a conformation. With this full moon in Leo themes might emerge about independence, freedom, creativity, passion, being a leader, play, or recognition.
Full moons are usually quite intense with the sun and moon in opposing signs. But the dynamic between the two is heightened during a full moon lunar eclipse, as the Earth moves directly in between the sun and moon. Because we are on Earth we will feel the dynamic between these two opposing signs even more as we are literally right in between them. This month the moon is in Leo and the sun in Aquarius. Both of these signs want freedom, independence, and autonomy - they really have to do with individuality. Don't be surprised if you feel a pulling away from the pack, or a need to separate yourself. Just be aware of how you are doing this - is it because you are building more of the self and moving in a direction that is in alignment with who you are, or is it a separation based on rejection? Pay attention. Again, the light of the full moon will show you how these two signs play out within you. Aquarius being an air sign, can bring a clarity of vision, the future and the big picture, though often detached and unemotional. And Leo brings the fire, passion, heart, the personal, but beware that this expression doesn't become indulgent or a need for attention. How are these two energies working within you?
With this Leo energy during the eclipse it might also bring up old (or new) heartbreak. An eclipse is a collective quickening - it pushes us into new energy. But with this lunar eclipse in the sign of Leo it could bring up some wounds of the heart, the good news is that there is energy to be used right now for deep healing and letting go. Or you might feel the Aquarius holding you back from getting in touch with these emotions. Again, an intense time full of many dynamics - so look closely and try your best to unpack what is going on inside you. When in doubt, just ask. I do this a lot, if I am unclear about something I ask for my second or third dot to connect and confirm.
I don't know about you, but I sure feel the fire under me right now. Those seeds you planted over winter are starting to sprout and grow - use this moon as added fuel to the fire. No doubt there is something in you that is ready to burst through the soil and make its way into the light.
