Super Blood Moon in Cancer
Scroll to Video down Below!
On the evening of Sunday, January 20th (and 21st in some locations) there will be a Super Blood Moon in the lunar star of Pushya, right in the heart of Cancer. The eclipse will be Full from 8:41-9:43 pm PST, with the max eclipse at 9:12 pm, and the actual complete Full Moon itself (Sun and Moon in exact degrees across from one another) at 9:16 pm PST.
The Full Moon will be considered a “Blood Moon” because it is a Full Lunar Eclipse and the Earth will be completely blocking the Moon from receiving it’s shine from the Sun, only the outer edge of light will cast its glow on the Moon, lighting it a deep red color. It is a Super moon because the Moon is going to be closer than usual to the Earth, making it appear 10 to 15 percent bigger to us. The Moon is in its home territory in Cancer, the sign of our emotions, unconditional love and the mother. We can feel where we are most nurturing, and also vulnerable in whatever house Cancer holds for us in our natal charts.
This eclipse marks the final hurrah in a year and a half period where we were collectively focused on the feminine, most specifically, the mother. The north node, Rahu, has been in Cancer since August of 2017, giving an amplified telescopic lens to our place as women in this world, as well as the feminine as an energetic component of all things. We can see this through the rise of female politicians, the “Me too” movement, the onslaught of social justice campaigns geared towards uplifting women and minorities. We can also see this is in the enormous backlash and resurgence of racism, patriarchy and colonialism that has come about from many leaders around the world as they grapple to maintain the status quo of power. Wherever Rahu goes there is an element of frenzy and exaggeration, the North node magnifies and distorts things in a way that creates a strong consumptive desire. Wherever Rahu is, we cannot sate our hunger for more of that thing. We also cannot learn our lessons wisely. Both the nodes of the moon cause illusion and stress in the material realm, as they are tied more to the subtle realms. Where Ketu, the south node that partially eclipsed the Sun two weeks ago ties us to to the ending of karma and narrowing in on what remains, Rahu attaches us to beginning new karma and widening the scope to take everything in.
The specific star of Pushya, is the nurturer and nourisher. It is often associated with the breasts and the offering of milk from a mother to its young. Here we are able to fully nurture what we love unconditionally and give without any regard to what we will receive in return. Pure love and devotion, this is the star the planet Jupiter, which rules our beliefs, ideals and ultimately wisdom, is exalted in. Jupiter will be casting an energetic gaze, or dristhi, on this Super Blood Moon, offering even more wisdom, grace and generosity of spirit to our psyche.
This Lunar Eclipse will be directly across from not only the Sun and South node in Capricorn, but also Mercury, our planet of communication has just entered this practical and hardworking sign. Here we can be grounded, determined and functional in our speech and communication, instead of standing on a pulpit and preaching our beliefs. Here we have a chance of using only the words that will say what needs to be said, but we also have a chance of being selfish, or utilitarian in our efforts as such.
Venus is one degree from Jupiter in Scorpio at this point, causing our beliefs and ideals to be very intertwined with our romantic lives and relating capacity. We can expect to be drawn to others with like-minded beliefs, but also to see the ways in which others, especially romantic partners, keep us from attaining our highest ideals and practicing our beliefs. In Scorpio, we can expect to go deep here, and see the spiritual and psychological path of our relationships with others.
Jupiter is gazing at, and still in an exchange of signs with, Mars in Pisces. These two are also in close degrees, with Mars only two degrees behind Jupiter. This is a very strong point for us to put our spiritual beliefs into practice and to release actions, battles and anger that does not serve our higher purpose or path. Mars in Pisces can be the path of least resistance. Sometimes it is avoiding what is hard, but with this powerful planetary exchange it is more likely to be letting go of what is not meant to be.
As always, eclipses are powerful events that indicate a reset with certain energies, and in this case, a setting forth new paradigms that have been being created over the last year and a half. Since it is a lunar eclipse with the north node, it will be “starting karma”, but because we are at the end of this particular eclipse axis, it is ending this particular focus in this way (erratic, magnified, even delusional at times) and is putting forward a new blueprint in which we can understand the divine feminine in our selves and in our world and move forward with a more discriminatory mind to find balance when Rahu moves into the sign of Gemini in March. Prayer, meditation and focus on the Divine Mother in all her myriad forms can be useful and while the moon will be super and blood red, it is not advised to bathe in eclipse light. Hare Ohm.
