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.
