The Luna Eclipse
last night, people in the Eastern Hemisphere were treated to the rare, cosmic sight of a “blood moon”.
The lunar eclipse, which will be the longest of the century, will be avidly followed by astrology and astronomy aficionados alike.
There are some people who believe that lunar activity can have a direct effect on the moods of beings on Earth. Should this be believed, or is the claim unfounded?
The “lunar effect” is a term that refers to the belief that the lunar cycle can have a direct influence on the behaviour and mood of human beings.
In 2008, a study published in Current Biology by researchers at the University of Oxford and the Ludwig Maximilian University assessed how human behaviour is connected to lunar cycles, concluding that there is little evidence to support the notion that there is an intrinsic link between the two.
“Lunar cycles had, and continue to have, an influence upon human culture, though, despite a persistent belief that our mental health and other behaviours are modulated by the phase of the moon, there is no solid evidence that human biology is in any way regulated by the lunar cycle,” the study states.
Ilya Mandel, professor of theoretical astrophysics at the University of Birmingham’s School of Physics and Astronomy, is sceptical about the connection between the blood moon and one’s temperament.
He explains to The Independent what makes a blood moon such a significant event from an astronomical perspective.
“A blood moon is really a lunar eclipse,” he says. “An eclipse happens when three astronomical bodies line up in a straight line.
“When the Earth is between the Moon and the Sun, we get a lunar eclipse, because moonlight is actually reflected light from the Sun, and in this configuration, the Earth is blocking sunlight from reaching the Moon.”
He explains how some of the Sun’s light is refracted by the Earth’s atmosphere, reaches the Moon and is then reflected back to Earth, which makes the Moon appear red in colour.
There are some who believe very strongly in astrology and the power that the blood moon may supposedly have over our actions.
“Nothing is random – there’s always order in chaos,” she says in regard to the blood moon. “Seemingly predictable and unrelated events have a defined pattern.
“The blood moon and longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st Century will be the culmination of the storms of change we’ve been through recently, as individuals and as a society.”
Keskula is of the opinion that the current heatwave the country is experiencing could be a “physical manifestation of what is going on energetically all the time.”
“The blood moon will be amplified to the max by total lunar eclipse, sun in Leo (fire sign) and the Moon ‘hugging’ Mars on the same day – the red warrior planet of action, aggression and vitality,” she says.
Intuitive Astrology: Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse July 2018
In astrology, the Moon rules over our emotional body and our intuition. It allows us to feel and reminds us that we are so much more than just what we can see. The Moon is how so many of us feel connected to the cosmos and to the skies, which is why over the years, we have looked to the Moon for guidance and understanding.
Out of all the lunar activity, we will ever feel or experience, July’s Blood Moon Total Eclipse is going to be one of the most potent. This is because it is the longest Lunar Eclipse we will have this century. Falling in the air sign of Aquarius on July 27th, this Blood Moon Total Eclipse is so strong that it’s going to penetrate straight into the pits of our soul, in order to shift and upgrade us to a new level.
Planet Earth is a challenging dimension. There are wars, famines, so much pain and so much suffering, and yet, our souls signed up to come here. Our souls chose to come to Earth at this time because we knew it was where we needed to be.
Under this Blood Moon Eclipse energy, the karma of our soul is going to be stirred, and if we pay attention, we may get a glimmer or a reminder as to why our soul chose this journey in the first place. While we may look at life through our physical eyes as being unfair, good, bad, and everything in between, the eyes of our soul sees things differently.
When we look at life through our spiritual or third eye, we begin to see life take on a whole new meaning and a whole new colour. When we look at life through the eyes of our soul, we understand and can see that everything is perfect. Everything is just as it should be.
Of course, this same reasoning is hard to find when we look at things through the lens of our mind. Life on Earth is a challenge, but we signed up for it. And, on the night of this Blood Moon Eclipse, things are going to be pulled and drawn out of us so we can remember what we came here to learn, and what our purpose is moving forward.
Opportunities like this come as a gift to remind us, to activate us, and to awaken us to what path we need to be on, and where we need to make some changes. This Aquarius Eclipse is going to push us. It is going to take from us. It is going to penetrate us right where it hurts, so we can clear, release, and find our freedom.
As the longest Lunar Eclipse, we will ever experience, this is an opportunity for us to dig deep, and reach further to clear and let go of all that we no longer want to carry. This is a time for us to purge, cleanse, and detoxify. This is a time for us to release the karma of many lifetimes. We have to surrender all that is weighing us down. We have to surrender and allow ourselves to be lead and guided.
Aquarius energy is all about the bigger picture. We are all this together and we cannot blame each other or one person and we cannot only feel what we feel. Whether we realize it or not, we feel everything. We feel every one. We feel every tiny vibration and every tiny thought.
With the heightened sensitivity of the Blood Moon Eclipse, a portal will open, and we will be able to see and feel the pain and the love, the joy and the fear, the emotions of every single living thing on this planet. And when we do, we will find that there is no separation. This intense feeling can stir up and activate a whole host of pains and wounds on many levels.
Under this energy, we may feel like acting impulsively, lashing out or doing something rash. We may also feel the heaviness of the world, and in turn, feel hopeless or uncertain about the future. While these are all things we will have to breathe through, know that there is a way to access the light in all of this. All we have to do is surrender. All we have to do is release. All we have to do is give up everything we ever thought about ourselves, and just allow ourselves to be.
Just allow yourself to be in a state of stillness, in a state of nothingness. Allow the Universe to take what it needs. Allow yourself to let go of all that is being shaken or pried from your hands. Have confidence, and have faith that there is a bigger picture behind all of this, and try to see things not with your eyes, but through your eye. Try to see things from the viewpoint of your higher self, your third eye, and remember that this is all just a temporary journey.
After the human journey is over, you will return to your true form and your true state. But until that time, there is work to be done. That work cannot be done if you forget why you are really here, and who you really are. That work cannot be done if you don’t understand that everyone around you and all the events that are drawn to you, are shaping and moulding you in the way your soul asked to be.
July’s Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse will release and activate old pains, but what it will also do, if you are willing, is guide you to your soul and to the part of you that signed up for this Earthly mission.
And when you access that part of you, you will see the world differently, and you will see others differently, and you will know that the Universe is not just guiding you, it is you.
This life’s dim windows of the soul distorts the heavens from pole to pole, and leads you to believe a lie when you see with, not through, the eye.”- William Blake
