The Full Moon lunar eclipse that ripens on Monday night is being referred to as the ‘Blood Moon”. Technically, it’s one of four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between.
This Lunar eclipse is at the degree of the Fixed Star Spica, a star of talent and honor. Don’t buy into drama or fear around this Full Moon; with the Cardinal cross of April, think of it as a karmic unwinding that will reveal a fresh new world.
And, the blood is a part of the amniotic fluids released at the moment of birth.
The full moon nearly always appears coppery red during a total lunar eclipse. That’s because the dispersed light from all the Earth’s sunrises and sunsets falls on the face of the moon at mid-eclipse. Traditionally, the full moon of autumn, the Harvest Moon, is also called the ‘Blood Moon’ because it often appears redder because of the season.
Some, such as Pastor Mark Biltz, author of “Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs,” have noticed that the 2014/2015 lunar eclipses fall on Jewish holidays of Passover and Sukkot. Mr. Blitz then further examines the history of eclipses and how they relate to war and the Middle East, especially the birth of Israel, concluding that this is an omen of negative world events, labeling the upcoming four consecutive lunar eclipses as ‘Blood Moons’.
I earnestly invite you to look beyond pop media, and enjoy the uniqueness of this astrological and astronomical event; it’s even more exciting and makes for a better story than predictions of suffering.
The right conversation to have is about the benefits of a Lunar (emotional) eclipse (re-set) in Libra (justice). Next week, April 20th – 23rd, four planets, Mars, Jupiter, Pluto, and Uranus, activate an aspect called a ‘Cardinal Cross’.
Each planet falls in the 13th degree of its respective sign; Mars at 13 Libra, Uranus at 13 Aries, Jupiter at 13 Cancer, and Pluto at 13 Capricorn.
Mars, now retrograde in Libra, is the activator of this event – the ‘trigger man’ so to speak. However, Mars is in his detriment in Libra, and even his retrograde status now endows thoughtfulness and concern, joined with a mandate to bow to the laws of Universal Justice.
There are several ‘reasons’ that 13 is considered a remarkable number, one of them being that there are, in the natural order of the cosmos, 13 natural lunar cycles in one year.
The Julian calendar, introduced by Julius Caesar in 46 BC was a reform of the natural Roman calendar. Later, in 1582 Pope Gregory instituted corrections to the Julius calendar, but the end result is that the civil calendar used today is the result of a systematic separation of humans from the natural world, and the power of women.
By the way, I love it that Christine Lagarde, managing director of the IMF is one of the most powerful people in the world now. Her surname, Lagarde has two translations; one is guardian or protector, and the other is a person in charge of growing edible produce, someone who feeds the people. Both translations have relevance to her service.
The world is giving birth, but it’s not going to end. And, women can and will be the midwives to our new foundation. Yes, women bleed, and they also give birth.
The Blood Moons of 2014/2015 will nurture a new way of being on this earth, and it’s up to you to affirm your reality as one of commitment, responsibility, and birthing a new world of love.
Wishing you the benefits of the New World order that you create.
Give birth to your Higher Self, nurture yourself and your loved ones, feed the animals, house the homeless, serve the disenfranchised, be a force of PEACE & JUSTICE ON EARTH.
