Full Blue, Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse, Jan 31st In Leo

Full Blood Blue Moon

What Is Going On With Us And The Full Blue/Blood Moon This Month?

The Lead Up To The Full Moon

Full Blood Blue Moon

We have but just a few days before the full moon/eclipse this Wednesday so it’s time to take in a deep breath as this wonderful moon gets closer and closer to fullness, keep up the stamina.

You might be feeling like giving up on those good intentions, the energy is rising and sometimes ego and or fear can creep in but don’t let it sway you.  Take some time to reflect, if you need to tweak your intentions/plans, then do because your goals are bulging with potential.

Keep up the momentum and if suddenly a new plan creeps into your mind, that’s fine, its a good time to bring that into your energetic fold, but breathe, be patient, be careful, get rid of any old bad habits that have crept in, it’s still the building phase but only just.

What Is A Blue Moon?

In this instance, this full moon is a blue moon because it is the second full moon to fall in a calendar month.

What Is A Blood Moon

Full Blood Blue Lunar Eclipse Moon

So we have a total eclipse with this full moon, because of this, the phenomenon happens whereby the moon in total eclipse appears reddish in colour as it is illuminated by sunlight filtered and refracted by the earth’s atmosphere.

How Does A Lunar Eclipse Effect Us?

Full Blood Blue Lunar Eclipse Moon

What this means is that any effect we might be having within our own chart gets a double whammy in effect on us.

The Universe changes in gears and plonks us right back on our proper path whether we are ready for it or not, so if you are aware of this, it makes this landing and progressing forwards a lot smoother.  Think of is like this, we came to this earth with our soul plan, sometimes we get distracted and our direction goes off the path, with the Eclipse it re-adjusts us taking us right to our true mission, so listen to your soul, not ego, let’s get in the flow.

Remember something that is challenging can often work out for the best, move forwards and let go of the past.

This Full Blood/Blue Moon Eclipse Is In Leo

blue-moon (1)

This Lunar Eclipse will encourage us to look more closely at our own wants, lacks, needs in our lives, there is a polarity in Leo – Aquarius.

You will find us being pressed to accept/think about the balance between the personal (Leo) and impersonal (Aquarius).  Leo is full of creative self-expression, sometimes the ego relating to romance and pleasure, whilst Aquarius rules the group, has objectivity and more impersonal friendships and within both we need to strike a balance between friendship, romance and expression both impersonal and personal.

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. How have I been treating people around me, like minions or connecting?
  2. Have I been self-centered, letting the ego in or displaying pride?
  3. Has there been vanity, arrogance in my behaviour or have I been pushy/pompous?
  4. Have I been cherishing my creativity and expressing it?
  5. What about self love, have I taken time for this?

Let’s get back in touch with our humility, find balance between our own needs and our friends.

Forgiveness Ceremony Words

Full Moon Rituals

The best time to do any forgiveness work is the night before the Full Moon ie Tuesday.  With forgiveness sometimes one can forgive and forget, other times forgive and either way is the right way for you.

Forgiving does not make what happened right, it is just a way of energetically releasing and letting go so that you can move forward and not let it hold you back, rather than shutting down with the negativity it can create.

Take some time, 10 minutes perhaps to sit and enter that state of stillness.  Think of anyone who you need to forgive, a grudge that is held, resentment, someone that has upset you in any way that you are still holding on to energetically, emotionally and spiritually.  Ask them to forgive you for your negative thoughts and send them love.

In this state of calm, think of anything negative, bad habits, old behaviours, or an upset and write it down, don’t think about it too much, use your instincts and go with the flow of expression.

List the names of anyone who has upset you, or ‘done you wrong’ in your mind, as far back as you need to and write down their names also.

Close your eyes and think of each person, encasing them in a beautiful loving bubble, imagine a loving, happy feeling between the two of you, create this space and say silently or out loud “I forgive you with love and light” then let them float away in this ball of unconditional love.

Next, recite this forgiveness prayer:

I place myself in the safety and flow of this glorious Full Moon and with this surrender I forgive myself, I forgive others, I forgive in totality and release all negative emotions and stuck behaviours to the Divine, to the Universe.  I bathe myself in love, bringing in this adjustment with joy and knowing, surrendering to the peace within.

Next, use a stone/terracotta bowl or sink and burn your forgiveness list, make sure it is a safe place and attended until completely burnt out.  This ritual is releasing, transmuting the negative in to positive.  Embrace the transition.

Gratitude Ceremony Words

When you forgive you create a space, that space that was filled with negativity, so now we need to replace that space with positivity.  Gratitude increases ones vibration and is a wonderful daily tool to remember just a few things that we are grateful for.  It will also leave you in a better place to manifest when the New Moon comes around in two weeks time.

Find a quiet place and quiet time and create some stillness.  Think about a place, situation, person anything, at least three for which you are grateful.  Think about these three things and allow your heart centre to open, feel the gratefulness and really embrace it.

Then write down on a list what/who you are grateful for

Then burn it, in a safe place, remain supervising this space until it has completely diminished.  Whilst it burns say a prayer, an example is:

“I am grateful for my life, my soul path and live within this life of knowing this truth, this deep knowing of blessed energy”

Wishing you all a blessed Full Moon Eclipse, Justine xxxx
