Full Moon in Aquarius + Lunar Eclipse AND Blood Moon- July 27, 2018
On July 27, the Full Moon in Aquarius will be a lunar eclipse and a blood moon! A lunar eclipse is when the sun, Earth and moon line up in a straight line, with the Earth in between the sun and moon. This casts a shadow onto the moon, making it glow red (hence, the Blood Moon). Also playing a part in this event is planet Mars in retrograde, and Mars conjunct Aquarius Full Moon. This combination of planetary positions means emotional energies will be intensified. Underlying issues or secrets are exposed now, as with any full moon, and should be recognized. Luckily, the previous new moon in Cancer helped us release at least some of our personal baggage, so this full moon begins a phase of emotional resetting. Lunar eclipses can be seen as powerful omens, bringing important messages that help guide us in the right direction for our lives!
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, planet of all things unexpected. Some events could take place that have a big impact on a larger scale. This means we may be feeling more anxious than usual, so try not to take anything too personally during this time. On another note, there is a good chance for breakthroughs in creativity, career, and business! If you've been putting in the time and effort into your projects over the lat six months, expect to see some results soon, though results may not be what you had initially hoped for. Have faith and trust that whatever happens is meant to be!
Opposite this Aquarius Full Moon is the sun in Leo. These two different zodiac signs both deal with perspectives. How we view ourselves, how we view others, and how we view the world as a whole may go through some serious changes now. This may feel like an ending, saying goodbye to the way things were. Remember that letting go of what no longer serves you creates room for new and positive opportunities. Try not to get too attached to any expectations and instead learn to go with the flow. If your environment starts to feel chaotic or unfamiliar, takes some quiet time to yourself to relax and rejuvenate.
Set some full moon intentions to make the most of this intense and powerful lunar eclipse!
