Full Blood Moon September 27th 2015
It’s all energy. We’re swimming in energetic streams. We are connected to the movements of the cosmos and are all woven together in this intricate and multidimensional tapestry that is Life.
There is a lot of charge in the air which could be wiping some of us out! Energy has been building toward this BLOODMOON~ LUNAR ECLIPSE in Aries, which is the final of the “rare” tetrad configuration that will culminate on September 27th 2015.
Passions will be stirring so we must take deep breaths, connect with the grounding energy of the Earth and bring patience and love to our interactions/relationships. We can transmute the fire and rise to see a new dawn with an open and accepting heart.
This month’s Aries Full Moon is very powerful, so don’t be surprised by the surprises that come your way. It’s the Harvest Moon, the Full Moon closest to the Autumn Equinox. It is the 4th consecutive Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in the last two years, a rare occurrence called a tetrad.
It is also the second and most powerful Super Moon this year, when the Moon comes the closest to Earth in its elliptical orbit, as well as closely aligning with the Lunar Nodes.
This means the Moon will look very BIG very soon!
So this lunar eclipse will create extra strong tides and energy flows, disrupting sleep and energy levels.
Added to this, when eclipses occur near the equinoxes, a time when the Earth’s magnetic field decreases, they aid us in making rapid changes, releasing old energy patterns so there’s energy available to create new forms.
Needless to say, the energies will be intense. Give these energies a week or so to calm down before you try to integrate what you’ve learned…
All four Eclipses occurred in the signs of Aries and Libra because the Lunar Nodes have been moving through these signs for the past year and half. The Lunar Nodes point to a collective lesson we all have to work through, old patterns to be dropped and new lessons to be learned.
With the South Node in Aries, we’ve been called on to let go of our old behavior patterns of reacting to situations with anger, domination and aggression, as well as our need to ‘go it alone.
The Libra North Node calls us to learn cooperation, diplomacy and partnership equality…
With this last Aries Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse, it’s time to integrate the endings, awakenings, transformations and death and rebirth experiences related to the balance of Self and Other, completing our initiation into a more balanced exchange between the masculine and feminine energies of life as well as between women and men.
All new things start with our choices. Our free will is our greatest gift, and yet many people don’t use theirs. That’s when we get stuck in life and can’t seem to find a way out.
Being a victim entails not seeing options in our lives. We shut down on life. Being an optimist means that we see different opportunities and choices we can make.
There are possibilities in life. Choices begin the process of change. Our brain chemistry changes when we make choices. Making a choice signals our brain that we’re ready to begin a journey. So the choice is the first step in changing our behaviors….
Lunar Eclipses occur when the shadow of the Earth moves across the face of the Moon, cutting off the sunlight. Usually, full Moons help us become aware of something within us, some feeling or belief that we keep hidden.
At a Lunar Eclipse, these feelings and beliefs come out unconsciously. You could say, our shadow is showing.
So look for your Shadow turning up this weekend, and instead of pushing it back into the Unconscious, embrace it, name it and allow it into your life.
This is the ultimate choic; stay open to all of yourself and own it. Then take it into your relationships and work consciously to include those rejected parts of yourself.
If your partners are strong, they’ll accept these elements of your personality and learn to work with them. The point is to keep your standpoint, try to find the compromises that work for both of you, and communicate with grace, openness and love….
The Sabian symbol for the Moon at 5 * Aries is a triangle with wings. This mystical symbol lifts us to a higher level of consciousness, helping us envision new possibilities. The triangle is related to the number 3, the energy of process and becoming. With the wings attached, the symbol shows us a process of ascension and awakening.
