Throughout 2018 we dealt with a roller-coaster year when it comes to our astrological experiences, hitting it’s peak as 7 planets moved into retrograde simultaneously. While 2019 is predicted to be a little easier on us, don’t hold your breath – it’s starting out with a bang!

The New Year is just around the corner, a time for fresh starts and new beginnings. If you haven’t already considered your plans for the coming year in terms of what you hope to accomplish this year, now’s your time! The world is in the palm of your hand, yours for the choosing. Close your eyes for a moment – where do you picture yourself at this time next year? Don’t sell yourself short.

On January 20/21 we will be treated to an incredible sigh, a Super Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse. The term ‘blood moon’ refers to an astrological phenomenon when the moon, usually a whitish color in the night sky, appears a ruddy-brown or red color. This is a side effect of a full eclipse, in which a small amount of light from the sunrises and sunsets here on Earth falls upon the moon, these specific light waves reflecting back to us in this reddish tint.

As it requires such specific circumstances with the presence of a total eclipse, these events don’t happen often. Even more impressive is that this specific blood moon will be visible throughout all of North and South America, as well as some parts of Europe, Africa, and Asia, assuming there are no unforeseen issues with the weather. It’s going to be an incredible sight and one that you don’t want to miss!

However, this astrological event isn’t just going to be visually impressive. The Super Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse also carries an incredible energy, one that is going to have a significant impact on our lives.

Much like the planets in our solar system, the moon also rules over a specific area of our lives – our emotions. As we move through the moon’s phases, our emotional state will ebb and flow. The full moon is the highest point, the point where our emotions are at it’s most intense. Feelings like annoyance or happiness quickly become anger and joy, strong feelings that are impossible to avoid. These feelings are further intensified with the super-moon, a time in which the moon is seen as bigger and brighter than ever.

Combine this with the energy of the total lunar eclipse, and there is no better time to make some major life moves. Astrologists recognize a lunar eclipse as the closing of a chapter, time to put the struggles and challenges of our past behind us. If you have been struggling with a toxic situation, you will find yourself empowered to break free. By letting these moments go, freeing yourself from their hold, you are opening the door to bigger, better things in the future.

The Super Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse is going to occur whether you acknowledge it or not, however, you are now facing an important choice. Are you going to allow this energy to come and go, or will you embrace it and use this opportunity to propel yourself forward to great success?
