Super Blue Blood Moon in LEO ---- the medicine of F I R E
Survival Kit: Dance, meditate, sing, be around fire, creatively express in a way that nourishes you, charge water underneath the full moon, love yourself unconditionally, be gentle on yourself, listen to your body
Cycles within cycles, a beginning and an ending, blue blood – this moon is like fire and ice. Together Leo & Aquarius rule the circulatory system – Leo the beating heart and Aquarius the network that delivers blood to the tissues – so it seems oddly fitting that the Full Blood moon would fall right in the Leo/Aquarius axis.
Blue moons happen occasionally every few years, however blue moon eclipses are much more rare. The moon is passing through the earth’s shadow causing it to glow red and orange ...
Blood -- FIRE -- Lionhearted
There is so much to cover here, so let’s start with the heart — the moon in LEO. A fixed fire, Leo rules the heart & spine, and as such Leos are known to be warm hearted, lion hearted – they radiate with a charisma and regality. Their spine stands straight and tall – they are courageous and strong.
Tomorrow’s full moon eclipse will occur in Leo. This is a follow – up, an ending, wrapping up the lessons around August’s new moon in eclipse in Leo, and it is a beginning for the next cycle. The moon’s orbit makes phases, the earth’s orbit causes eclipses. Cycles within cycles, transformation and growth, within tranformation and growth. 29 days the moon waxes and wanes, we move with her – we wax and wane, we lift our wings and we let them settle, we plant seeds, reap what we’ve sown, and we rest – It is a beautiful dance.
And then outside of that happens a larger turning, both subtle and bold transformations are happening – almost as if the monthly moons are the melody, and underneath the surface there is another song, a different beat, slowly moving through the tough obstacles — that is the greater medicine of the eclipses.
And within these eclipses the common theme has been the Leo moon. Every person works through different issues throughout the eclipses (you can look to see what house the eclipse falls in in your chart to get a better picture) – however with the center of these eclipses being around the moon in lionhearted Leo we are all working around our personal expression, creativity, individuality, and ability to shine and be seen. In a world that is feeling more and more chaotic -- we still have a need to honor our individual needs, our boundaries, and the space to find our unique voice so we can shine. With space to breathe Leo comes back to themselves and then can radiate outward as an active voice within their communities and their family.
With this moon you are really becoming clear on your place in this great big picture. You are feeling the zeal to start that project, organize, run for office, or burn down what you no longer need. It is you and the moon, you and your purpose, your power, your ability to shine. You are learning to move to the beat of your own drum. You are learning to honor your needs and boundaries, whatever they may be.
Leo is a fire sign and the medicine of fire is putting action to your words. Leo at their best is the ambassador of INTEGRITY. We put our actions where our words are, we mean what we say, we are honest and bold, we let our light shine, and we lead with our whole heart. Leo needs a purpose and while they get a bad reputation for a superficiality and love of flattery, however at their best, kind words are really only fuel and affirmation for their heart-full mission. The highest expression of Leo is to love yourself unconditionally, no excuses. Leo is fierce grace, bold expression and creativity as a spiritual and soulful act.
Blue --- AIR – Electric
The sun is in Aquarius and in order to balance this energy we see how we can use this individual power and creativity to better serve our communities. We detach from the dramatic feelings and look at things objectively. The big love of Leo carries over and now extends outwards to our human family. This is the axis of social consciousness and the larger message of this time is seeing how we can best serve ourself, our communities, and the collective at large. As the heart beats, the Aquarian networks get the message out, they organize, they form communities, they protest. Aquarius pours out the truth and breaks up the status quo.
As the moon is passing through the earth’s shadow. We are still using our shadows for deeper transformation. We’re getting better at it now, we’re seeing the growth and light that is at the other side, and with that renewed confidence and the strength of Leo we have a fresh start for a new chapter.
The combination of super, blood, blue and eclipse means this is a p o t e n t time for magic making. All that has been simmering below the surface can manifest easily right now. Listen to your body, listen to the still quiet voice within and honor what it says, and mostly have fun ^_^ Happy full moon !
