On January 31st, a Blue Blood Moon will be happening in the sign of Leo.This month we see our second Full Moon in the sign of Leo. This inst just any old Full Moon, it is a Blue Moon and a Blood Moon. Blue Moon is a name given to the second Full Moon of the month. This second Full Moon we see in the month of January is really rare, as you may have heard the saying before” Once in a blue Moon”. It’s also a Super Moon and will be very exceptional. Super Moon’s are closer to the earth and thus appear 14 per cent larger in our sky and 30 percent brighter than usual. Because of the Moon’s closeness to earth, the impact of the Full Moon energies will be stronger and a lot more powerful than normal. This includes the oceans tide so watch out for the big surf coming your way!
Typically there are only three Full Moons in every season, one each month. However, once in a “Blue Moon” happens every couple of years or so, that means we get a bonus Full Moon! This Blood Blue Moon will also be a total Lunar eclipse just to add more excitement to the mix. Blood Moon is a term used to describe a total Lunar eclipse. This eclipse is the first of three Blood Moon’s that will occur between 2018-2019.
The last time we seen all three of these events occur in the sky (Lunar eclipse, Supermoon and Blue Moon) was in March, 1866. The term “Blue Moon” is paved with mystery folklore and magic. The name ” Blue Moon’ with its mystery and beauty has even been written about in Shakespeare plays over 400 years ago.
Full Moons astrological are when the Sun and the Moon are both opposing one and other at 180 degrees. The Sun is shining all of its light to illuminate the Moon, and signifies to us that it this is a huge shift of perspective. It’s about completion of a cycle and its about being illuminated and reaching a completion point and shedding old energy.
This Full Moon being in the fire sign of Leo, means that this month we are being showered with Leo energy. Leo is about being a leader, being creative, having confidence,pursing our dreams, self-expression and overcoming difficulties in a positive light-hearted way. We are playful, and enjoy forming connections to children and our inner child and simply wanting to have fun. Leo energy is one of self creative expression. It’s great for those who need an ego boost on individual or social level, and Leo makes this happen through pleasure, playfulness and romance. This Full Moon in Leo is really going to push us and urge us to find balance and harmony between romance and friendships, between expressing ourselves in a more personal ways and to start feeling proud and confident in one self!
This Blue Moon in Leo is sitting at 11 degrees. 11 in numerology is the master number of service, it vibrates at a higher spiritual learning and enlightenment. The focus is to apply your energy, this passionate fiery Leo energy to being of service to others. How can you creativity benefit others, how can you use your connections to help… This Full Moon ask yourself.. “How can I be of service to others” How can my skills or talents help others”. The more you can give, whether its making someone laugh or using your mind to make a positive change to someones life. It’s as simple as.. if you can make someone even for a moment forget their fears, worries or sorrows, you will be giving the best gift you can give.

This Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Leo means its opposing sign is Aquarius energy. Today, look at the opposing houses that are ruled by Leo and Aquarius in your personal chart. specifically, look at where 11-12 degrees of Leo and/or Aquarius in your own natal chart. This can be a great indication where you are currently seeking this balance especially in regards to personal issues.
Today’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is aligned with an opposition to Venus. This will cause friction and tension between the planet that resonates to the feminine principle, beauty and love and the Moon, which rules over our emotional intelligence. Venus represents that part of us connected to feminine ideals of beauty, resources such as money/finances, relationships and the ability to form loving partnerships. The Moon rules over our emotions and feelings, it represents our inner security, our emotional nature, and our deepest desires and needs.
As the Moon is in Leo, we are passionate, playful, inspired, fun seeking and we have an excitable approach to life. Venus in Aquarius is rebellious, seeks freedom yet closeness, unconventional and a very unique lover. Venus in air sign is always a bit detached and impersonal and that can really reflect today. As this opposition indicates that some of us may face a challenge in the way we express ourselves our emotions (especially in social settings) and our intentions to the world. We can find we may be blocked off or cut off from others or in our personal relationships. There may feel like something is wrong or you may notice some distance between those you love and yourself, but it not true, it’s just the energy around and the inability to communicate your sensitive emotional needs and wants to others and vice versa that creates tension and somewhat misleading impression of others and yourself today. This also includes you business, work, friend and partner relationship as well as issue to do with finances and money! Try not to become obsessive or too possessive this may and will cause problems, and especially avoid overindulging in food or drink to try to ease your sorrows.
This Full Moon is about really letting go. Each Full Moon, traditionally brings us to a point of clarity. The direction of what began two weeks ago at the New Moon should show its face more clearly. We get a better understanding of where we should focus and put our energy into, in order to manifest our dreams and desires we wrote down last New Moon. It’s a time to know when to stop pursuing and cut ties to certain goals, as this isn’t the best time for us to manifest them. listen to your inner guidance you will know whats worth pursing now.
This eclipse in Leo, is really going to push our emotions to the surface. Expect to feel the pressure as we are being pushed to look more closely at our needs, lacks, and wants. Find the old worn out and dated emotions, ways of doing things and processes. De stress your life, banish any issues along with anything else that needs to be released this Full Moon as we have a chance to really declutter our life and make progress through this important time of change! Eclipses are tied to changing circumstances, letting go and endings. We must make room for the new by clearing out the old. This months Lunar Eclipse will be happening in the north node and will be pulling energy in from there. The effects of this lunar eclipse due to the interruption of the Suns energy, will be felt for up to 6 months.
This Blue Moon in Leo has been considered as very fortunate and lucky, it truly is something to be celebrated. It’s a time to review and rewrite if needed your long-term goal and plans for the future.Seeing that this magic Blue Moon is occurring at the beginning of the year marks a year of tremendous positive growth in your personal life. The next few days we are given a opportunity and an open a doorway into our future, don’t waste it.
Happy Full Moon.
