We are about to experience an incredible astrological phenomenon with the coming of the Full Blood Moon lunar eclipse on July 27th, the longest lunar eclipse of the century! While the energy from this event is sure to have an impact on all of our lives, this impact isn’t going to be as profound for everyone.
The impact of the full moon on our society has long been recognized, with this particular moon phase credited for wild behavior and complete chaos. How many times have you heard the phrase ‘it must be a full moon tonight’ when things get a little out of hand? The truth, according to astrologers, is not that the full moon creates chaos, but it does intensify our emotions. These emotions lead us to make rash decisions or impulsive choices in our lives, which on a mass scale explains the effect that so many of us have witnessed!
As if the full moon energy isn’t enough to prepare for, this July we will experience a full blood moon coupled with a total lunar eclipse. During this time, we will be forced to face our ‘shadow self,’ the darker side of our personality that most of us prefer to keep hidden away from the world. These ‘darker’ personality traits may embarrass us or even show a side of ourselves that frightens us to some degree. Have you ever found yourself questioning what you are capable of in a negative way?
While this may sound like an incredibly negative experience, it is important to note that this level of self-reflection may be the key to profound self-growth. However, it’s certainly not going to be easy or comfortable! Before you get too worried, while we will all experience this energy in some way, it’s not going to completely turn all of our lives upside down – only some of us! Some zodiac signs will find the coming days to be incredibly difficult, while others won’t be affected much at all. Are you one of the lucky few?
These 6 zodiac signs will be the least impacted during the comping July blood moon:
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You’re known for your temper, allowing even this negative and sometimes frightening side of your personality to be experienced by the world without restraint. What does this mean? When everyone else is coming face to face with their shadow selves, you largely live yours every day! There isn’t too much that you have kept hidden, so you aren’t going to see much of a change. In fact, if there is anything you’re embarrassed about and hide away it tends to be your more compassionate side!
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
Prepare yourself for some serious introspection, as the coming blood moon is going to focus your attention largely on your inner thoughts. It’s likely not going to introduce too much that is new to you, you’re aware of the conflicting and disorganized thoughts that you entertain on an ongoing basis, but it will provide you with the opportunity to seriously consider your options and make some decisions. In fact, while others talk about chaos and darkness, this period of time may actually provide you with some clarity.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
The fact that you are such an intense perfectionist may actually be the reason why you aren’t going to feel too much of an impact during this blood moon. How does that work? In your effort to ensure that you are always the best at everything that you do, you’re already well aware of your weaknesses. While you aren’t really going to learn anything new about yourself, you can harness the boost in energy that you will experience to work through some of these weaknesses. This is far from the uncomfortable experience that many others will talk about – you see this as a great opportunity!
Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
The biggest impact you’re going to feel during this month’s blood moon will present itself in your emotions. Trying to keep peace and harmony in the world, you often bury your own emotions and opinions away. After all, you can’t insult someone if you don’t share anything at all, right? While facing them may sound like a dramatic experience in your life, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. You’re not actually as good at hiding them as you like to think. Everyone else already knows how you’re feeling in most situations, it’s just you that will have to face it.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
If you respond to the blood moon in the way that you handle everything else in your life, you’re going to have an easy time of this. There is no sign more aware of the calming and energizing powers of the natural world, a power that you rely on regularly. Rather than allowing the blood moon to drag you down, get out and reconnect with yourself. Sure, you’re going to face a darker side of your personality, but if you can identify and acknowledge this side of yourself, you’re one step closer to letting it go and moving forward – a realization that you’re going to come to quickly. Just ‘do you’ and continue to go with the flow, it will all work out.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Why are you going to have such an easy time during the blood moon? Let’s be honest, you’re likely going to spend most of this period in your own little dream world, avoiding the experience entirely – it’s a coping mechanism that you have perfected over the years. While it wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing to come back down to reality long enough to at least address some of the weaknesses and secrets that this phenomenon will reveal, the second that you feel overwhelmed you’ll retreat back to your own happiness refusing to allow it to drag you down.
