Are we ready to roar?!
A Super Blood Blue Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs on January 31, 2018, at 11 degrees and 37 minutes of Leo, opposing the Sun at 11 degrees and 37 minutes of Aquarius, and this transit will affect people born with personal planets and points at approximately 7 to 17 degrees of the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) most significantly.
A Super Moon occurs when the Full Moon is closest to Earth. This means this up coming Lunar Eclipse is going to have good visibility, and its energetic effects will be potent.
A Blood Moon is used to describe a series of three or more Total Lunar Eclipses, but the name comes from the fact that a Total Eclipse gives the Moon a reddish glow. Blood Moon’s are rare, and we haven’t had one since 2015. We will have two more Total Lunar Eclipses to follow, one later in 2018 and another in 2019.
A Blue Moon is when the there are two Full Moon’s in a month. This is also an extremely rare occurrence and makes this Eclipse particularly significant…. And in 2018 we have two Blue Moons!
During a Lunar Eclipse, the Earth is exactly between the Sun and the Moon (known as an opposition between the Sun and the Moon). For a brief moment, we can see the Earth’s shadow turning the luminous Full Moon into intense shades of reds, golds, browns and greys.
A full moon eclipse is a far more potent lunation than a typical full moon. We look to the house the lunar eclipse falls in our natal (birth) chart to determine the affairs of that house will be activated. If the eclipse falls on a planet in our natal chart, that planet will also be activated. The sign of the eclipse takes place in plays a role in the likely conditions that the eclipse will trigger.
Eclipses are tied to changing circumstances. However, we are usually the ones to precipitate or to attract changes because our inner guidance knows that we need it. We human beings are progressive by nature, and although we may stay in situations that are making us miserable for longer than we should, deep down at the core of our being, we know that change is necessary for growth.
Leo is the zodiac sign of self- expression. Under this up coming Lunar Eclipse transit , we have an opportunity to be more true and open to our inner most desires and passions. Therefore we can anticipate changes where the sign of Leo is present in our natal chart during this upcoming eclipse.
