Supermoon Eclipse! Fresh Eyes
Here it is! This Full Moon has been capturing attention as it’s also a Supermoon Blue Moon Total Lunar Eclipse. This rather dramatic Full Moon is in Leo. At Eclipse totality (around midnight in Australia), the Moon will turn red (for about one and a quarter hours), and Leo is a fire sign. What are you feeling hot, red or fiery about in your life at this time? Are you on fire with your goals? This Supermoon in Leo trines fire goddess Vesta, and fire planet Mars while also linking in with goal-oriented planets in Capricorn. Are you willing to live your core life passion, as opposed to leisure and pleasure passion? Are you willing to seek your life loves? If you were backed up against a wall and made to choose between following your most inspired life and loves in a practical way each day, versus feeling broken-hearted, what would you do?
It might seem as if you would of course say I would choose to live my most inspired life, my joy, my excitement and follow my heart and yes of course I would take practical steps towards that each day. But is that really true? Something about this uncompromising Lunar Eclipse in Leo helps you see where you might be longing to follow your life core loves but not actually doing it, or envying others who do, or deciding life has made things too hard for you to do that, or even giving up. Or perhaps you might be following your dreams without realising it’s at the expense of other meaningful and essential life experiences, even taking shortcuts that might turn out to undermine you. This Leo Lunar Eclipse helps us see where we are not integrated in how we are going about living our most essential-self lives and loves, and helps bring guidance.
Less than 10 minutes after Eclipse totality, Mercury moves out of Capricorn and into Aquarius showing the benefits of staying open to life’s big messages and welcoming shifts in perspective. Something that might seem doomed could turn around in the positive when you see things through different eyes. Perhaps your life love is around the next corner. Why ever give up? Ceres, the mother earth archetype, is right next to this Leo Full Moon. Think of your passion as your own ‘planet earth’. What would help your own planet bloom right now? Are you wishing for a life partner or a boost in your career? There might even be a mother type you can reach out to for practical insight to share your vision or vulnerabilities, especially if you’re feeling too shy or too brash and want to check you have the right mix of ingredients for your next moves.
The Eclipse is visible in Australia around midnight if clouds are clear. Go here for information on Eclipse times for your time zone.
