Tonight there is an amazing Super Moon hanging blood red in the sky. But christened a Blue Moon too. We are able to witness an eclipse as well. Not just a regular usual Full Moon then. One that hasn’t been witnessed for 150 years.
I have to say that the weather here has been cloudy all day so my chance of actually seeing this moon is slim. However, I know it is there. And I can feel it’s energy pull. It’s a blue moon because this month there are two full moons. It is also a Super Moon because it is closer to the Earth this time round. And it’s also on the day when there is a lunar eclipse. In other words the Moon will be in Earth’s shadow. This causes the Moon to turn blood red. So what does all that do to the energy of the Moon? And, of course, as a consequence, to my energy.
The Moon creates the tides. It also creates tides in the feminine energy in and around me. At the Full Moon I always feel charged with energy. I become a night owl. And my creativity zooms upwards. Dealing with the Moon being closer to the Earth also means that I get additional energy bursts. I am more intuitively sensitive than normal. Even though I am good at shielding myself from too much energy my dreams have been filled with other people, conversations and uncomfortable emotions. Relationships and communication with others have taken on a slight edge as we work through the impact of an increased intuitive knowing about each other.
Yet I feel the impact of the Earth’s shadow too. The red moon reminds me that strong emotions can drive fear and aggression as well as creativity.
I know that I have a shadow side. It’s also true that my actions and beliefs can cast a long shadow over others. I can choose to bring my collaborative, creative Moon energy to bear on situations. Or I can act out my shadow fears instead. The choice is up to me. This mix reminds me of the intimate experience of giving birth. Amongst the blood a baby is releasing herself from the shadow of her mother. She is emerging to take her place in the Light. The violence of birth is transformed into the gift of a life. Hopefully a life that will shine brightly with the energy of love. When I feel the pull of the Blood Moon I know that it is time to birth something new about myself.
I also know that to do that I will have to allow for other things to be cleared away. Like an afterbirth flows out and away. Perhaps painfully. Or perhaps not. Because it has served it’s purpose and is no longer sustaining life. So I will be taking the opportunity over the next few days to prepare for what I want to release. Working with my intuition to identify all the energy that has become worn out. Identifying all of my attitudes, beliefs, issues and material possessions that have stopped being life affirming. I will also be boosting the energy of my Third Eye (red and blue make purple) so that I can see clearly what also needs to shift spiritually.
For me the end point of this Blood Red Blue Super Moon is a wave of energy that enables me to approach this year of Divine Feminine energy with intention, hope and adventure. I’m being encouraged to move forward in my life. This energy combination is giving me the big push I need.
