This Friday July 27/Saturday July 28 we are going to experience the longest full moon eclipse of the century. This eclipse will be most powerfully during the totality for 1 hour and 43 minutes! There will be a partial eclipse as well, so the energy will be potent for almost 4 hours. I won’t be able to see it here in Canada since the full eclipse begins at 12:30 PT (3:30 ET), reaches totality at 1:21 PT (4:21pm ET) and ends at 2:13 PT (5:13 ET) with a Partial eclipse occurring at 11:24PT and ending at 3:19 pm PT. If you live in Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America you may be able to see it. Check out the Eclipse Calculator HERE to see what times it is for you & if will be able to see it where you live.
A total lunar eclipse happens when the earth takes position in a straight line between the moon and sun. That blocks the direct sunlight that normally makes the moon glow. When these 3 celestial bodies are perfectly lined up the earth’s atmosphere scatters blue light from the sun while bending red light onto the moon giving it its name blood moon. You can use binoculars to see a close up view of the moon. You will also be able to see Mars as a bright star because it is at its closest point to the earth of the year. It might have a bit of a reddish tinge too. I read one article which suggests that you “moon bake” or do a ceremony during the eclipse to honour and take in the energy.
Also at this eclipse, there are six planets in retrograde, the sun is in Leo and the moon in Aquarius. Astrologically there are those who predict gloom and doom, but since I practice divine living I’ll be sharing those high vibeing possibilities you can choose from. Tune into the portal of this eclipse and make an evolutionary leap along with many others who are ready to do so.
With the Sun in Leo it can be a fun carefree time while everything on earth changes for the better. The July full moon is also known as blessing moon since now is a time when plants flowers and the summer crops are abundant. Roll out those hazy, lazy days of summer. Those days when you can relax and reflect on the good things in your life.
The moon in Aquarius can lead to expanding into even higher consciousness, bringing idealistic innovative dreams or evolutionary ideas into fruition, and revelling in the exciting changes that will occur. Aquarius is a non-conformist sign which encourages doing the unexpected, ignoring past patterns and structures and moving into the newest moreness of the beyond. Celebrate what makes you divinely different from the other 7 billion humans on the planet.
You can align your actions with your divine life energy, and your original soul creation, find clarity and new answers in your thoughts and emotions and allow your desires to flow easily and effortlessly to you. If you have any co-creative projects on the go then direct the power of this eclipse to amp up your activities. Allow yourself to evolve to become an even more intense divine being. Step into the flow and then let go of any boundaries to be it all and experience the toddlerhood of our adventures and undertakings in this the golden era of highest consciousness, harmony and collaboration. Have a great eclipse.
