Lunacy: OMG SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON

I mentioned at the end of my last post that I was going to be talking about the upcoming OMG SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON (Yes, it’s really called that; yes, you have to say the OMG; and yes, you have to all-caps yell it EVERY TIME.), so here I am with the astro-details on that. I also have a cool new partnership I want to tell you about, so read on!

This Sunday, January 20th at 10:36pm EST, the first full moon of the year, the Wolf Moon, will be close enough to Earth to be called a Super Moon, and will also go through a full lunar eclipse, making it a deep red color – a Blood Moon. Add all that up and you’ve got an OMG SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON!

Aside from being having a badass name and conjuring up images fit to be painted on the side of a metal cover band’s windowless van, this lunar event will also be impacting the astrological forecasts for all of us. I spent some time this week researching what this means, and I don’t think it’s hyperbole to say that OMG LIFE AS WE KNOW IT IS ABOUT TO GET REEEEEEAAAAAAL INTERESTING.

Eclipses happen in pairs and they hit opposite signs over the course of two years when they do. This eclipse, which will hit sun sign Leo, is part of the Leo-Aquarius eclipse series that began February 10, 2017, and which includes the amazing full solar eclipse that hit on August 21, 2017.

Now, Leo tends to represent royalty, high leadership, and the privileged elite, while Aquarius – its celestial opposite – represents the common people, humanitarian efforts, and activism and uprisings. Think back on the world events of the past two years and the clashes between these two opposing groups. Think about the tensions becoming greater and greater between them as the time has gone on. Sunday’s lunar eclipse will close out this cycle, and it won’t happen without some upheaval on its way out.

In the world, we may see the beginnings of the fall of leaders, we may see secrets exposed and subverted situations coming to light unexpectedly. We may hear news out of Buckingham Palace, Washington, D.C., Russia, or Geneva. There will be a large shift on Sunday and into the early hours of Monday morning, and there will definitely be worldwide drama left in its wake.

As for what this lunar eclipse means for each of us personally, it can be very different for each sign. What will be consistent for us all, however, is the inconsistency: change. Eclipses mean shift, change, adaptation, but they also mean opportunity. Look to your sign and in your life to see what new opportunities lie ahead after our worlds get SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON-ED.

You can definitely find more in-depth information out there on the interwebs about what this lunar eclipse shift will mean for you personally, but I suspect that by the time Monday gets into full swing, we will all be starting to see the impact in one aspect or another!

Another cool thing I get to do is hanging out with the ladies of Girl’s Girls Media, Brittany and Meredith. Their Girl’s Girls Podcast is smart, funny, and my favorite hour every week – and that’s just the weeks I don’t spend recording with them! Starting this week, I get to be a recurring “friend of the pod”, and the girls’ Armchair Astrologer!

Check out the pod, subscribe, give it five stars, join the Patreon community, and tell your friends. It’s so much fun, and the people I’ve met through the Girl’s Girls Community Facebook group are seriously the most wonderful women on the planet. Consider this post an early eclipse-related opportunity for change!

Be safe this weekend – I know many of us are expecting a blizzard on top of an OMG SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON – and keep your heart, mind, and soul open to the possibilities that an eclipse will be bringing our way.

Also, stay open to the possibility that you may hear your weirdo neighbor wolf-howling on Sunday night. If he has crystals in his hands, it’s probably no reason to call the authorities; if he has crystal meth in his hands, then DO call the cops.

New Year, New Woo

New Year, New Woo.png

Happy New Year, y’all!

Did you wake up this morning brimming with hope and optimism? Have you spent the past few days making a list of resolutions, intentions, or goals for the coming year? Did you, too, spend yesterday eating your body weight in buffalo chicken dip and posting your Insta Top Nine all over the social medias?

Well then welcome to 2019, friends. It’s about to get INTENTIONAL up in here.

Oh hey, welcome to the blog, too, by the way. If you know me personally, digitally, or biblically (Hiiii, husband!), then you know I’ve had something up my sleeve for a while now.

This is it. I hope you’re not terribly disappointed that I didn’t join or form an actual cult, but you can always pretend if you want to! Just do what I do, but don’t hold me to any sort of responsibility for your choices or actions! Results definitely not guaranteed!

Here’s how all of this came about:

I spent much of 2018 floundering. I had crippling anxiety, left my long term job in recruitment, dyed my hair purple, started a couple of new ventures in the name of “work-life balance”, and lost both my mojo and motivation somewhere in probably August or September.

I was suffering from a lifetime of compounded feelings of inadequacy, perfectionism, and just not knowing what I wanted to BECOME, or how even to navigate those waters.

At thirty-*cough* years old, I figured I should really have a better handle on things, and yet…

*gestures around at flaming debris of adulthood*

So, as 2018 drew to a close, I knew that much of the world would be riding the grossly-optimistic tide of the “new year, new you” peddlers, and that was as good a time as any for me to start something new, and really commit to finding my way in life.

I have some dear friends who have been urging me to try some Law of Attraction work. If you’ve never read The Secret, the Law of Attraction is the belief that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, people can bring positive or negative experiences into their life. It’s all very “woo-woo”, but people swear it works.

woowoo

 adjective

After spending most of December feeling depressed, sad, and anxious about finances, the future, and everything around me, I decided that honestly, what did I have to lose at this point? Maybe I should give it a shot. So I started to think about my options.

Then I spent Christmas night taking actual shots of pinworm medication with my husband and four-year-old because kids are DIS GUST ING, and it was then that I KNEW I needed a change of mind, attitude, and spirit. And probably a gallon of bleach.

Jen Sincero’s book You are a Badass has been sitting on my shelf for a few months now, and I’ve decided to dive in and give myself over to her brand of Law of Attraction work.  Having read The Secret years ago in an attempt to voodoo a baby into my barren womb, I wasn’t interested in reliving that particular variety of woo.

So this is where I start: I’m going to attempt to woo me a NEW me, beginning with the Law of Attraction. Because I’ve been drawn to other woo-ish beliefs in the past, I’m also going to explore all sorts of interesting practices, and apply them to my life.

My hope here is to entertain and educate while learning and growing as a person. If I can gain a better understanding of what makes me tick, what I do well, and how I am best motivated, I believe I can parlay that into a meaningful life going forward.

I hope you’ll stick around to read about my adventures in attempting to magic my way into growing the fuck up, and please feel free to look me up pretty much everywhere you get your social media fix uploaded into your brain cavity.
