There are even more eclipses coming towards you, stargazers! Granted, some of us did not really have the opportunity to process the partial eclipse on July 12th, but let's be real, we really have no choice but to surrender. For the record, the total lunar eclipse of 2018, aka Bloodmoon, is not to be taken lightly. On the contrary, it is said to be the longest total lunar eclipse of this century. That's pretty awesome, do not you think?
July 27th, exactly at 16:20. ET, the moon will make a journey through Earth's shadow for about an hour and 43 minutes. This solar eclipse will appear orange and red, as the sunlight penetrates the earth's atmosphere and is reflected by the moon. I know, is not that totally magical? Although most of us will not experience this cosmic event (North America) as the moon will be below the horizon.
This particular solar eclipse is part of the Leo Aquarius Eclipse family, which will continue until early 201
Until then, here is the 411 on this massive moon:
Total lunar eclipse in Aquarius
For starters, the Moon is a high emotional planet, so you can imagine how emotionally a lunar eclipse is really is. However, this solar eclipse will be in the sign of Aquarius, which is also the sign of the collective.
Aquarius is the humanitarian zodiac sign as it represents social groups, teams and tribes. With the Moon in Aquarius, reactions are more logical than emotional, as our humanity comes first.
Let It Go
This total lunar eclipse will be in conjunction with the south node and Mars retrograde. That's wild. In the beginning, in astrology, everything that connects the South Node means that it purifies, clears and leaves our lives. (FYI: The South Node represents both the gifts and the karmic guilt we bring back from past lives.) Now adding wood to the fire, Mars is also involved, making this end much more powerful. However, with Mars Retrograde it could come to frustration.
Put it this way, Mars loves to go fast. His energy is powerful, enthusiastic and passionate AF. In retrogression, however, this intense energy is internalized, so she might feel a bit restless. Nevertheless, the universe invites us to let go and free ourselves from emotional (lunar) burdens.
The lunar eclipse, next to Mars Rx and the south node, will make a square (suspense) to rebel Uranus. Interestingly, Uranus is the planetary ruler of Aquarius, and he has literally turned characters into bulls, so this is a whole new level of meaning. Uranus is the planet of chaos, electricity and rebellion. Taurus represents our income, values and self-esteem. Together, these energies will transfer electrical waves of change and take us to a whole new level of perspective. Well, that's really powerful, and since the South Node is involved, it will help us free ourselves from what no longer serves us. Are you ready?
This lunar eclipse will be a blessing, and I'll tell you why. On the day of the eclipse the sun in Leo will also be in contact with the north knot. The sun represents our soul purpose and the north knot is basically the yellow brick road to the sun, aka our soul. Also, the sun is our energy and vitality, so this could definitely be a confidence booster, as well as a bright light in our lives.
Let Love In
Despite how intimidating this lunar eclipse might sound just know that you are undergoing a beautiful transformation. This is your metamorphosis and soul development. Free up what is no longer yours and open the door to change you.
Let the love in.
