This year we are experiencing the effects of 2 BLUE MOONS, one on January 31st and another on March 31st. This is a rare phenomenon, the last time this happened was 1999. As we all know, the Full Moon affects our ocean tides and our emotional bodies. Schools, hospitals and police are extra busy during Full Moons, because we are under its influence and need to know haw to navigate through these challenges that the Moons bring us. Each Month we experience a different Theme based on the 13 Moons, 13 Grandmothers.
What we live, how we are influenced and how we react or respond to these energies depends on our level of consciousness, self-awareness and self-discipline.
In the news today, on the weather channel, I noticed several coastal regions were already experiencing unusually large ocean waves hitting up against the shores. The pull of the Super Blue Moon is already upon us.
The Blue Moon in our teachings is when we undergo initiations that show us what we will be living and learning the next 3 years. But this year, between January 31st and March 31st, we will go through 3 years of life in a matter of 2 months. Then on March 31st, we will go through another Blue Moon experience, which will stay with us for the next 3 years.
Not only is January 31st, a Blue Moon, it is a SUPER MOON, meaning it is closest to the Earth as it can be in its orbit. It will be 14% larger than usual and 40% brighter.
AND as if that is not enough... it is also a BLOOD MOON! This refers to the fact it will be a TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE. The blue light from the sun will be filtered by the earth's atmosphere, leaving a reddish glow on the Moon .
Does all this sound complex? Well it is! And so are we, and so is Life. But the Medicine Wheel helps us to stay balanced, centred and grounded during such times. I am so grateful for the teachings handed down to me by my Teachers and the Dreaming.
I wish you all a conscious journey in the times to come as Mother Earth is struggling to survive, and many go about their daily lives in ignorance and denial. Please remember to think of Mother, and be kind to her - recycle, reduce your consumerism ways, compost... do what you can with prayerful intention. In the end, it is YOU that will benefit from your connection to her more than anything. Even if our small acts do not make a difference in the bigger picture, it will make a difference for you and your soul.
