Tonight brings a Super Blood Wolf Moon in Leo with an Eclipse. When it arrives here in New Hampshire, we’ll have mostly cloud covered skies and the temps will be around 7F/-14C (but the real feel is supposed to be somewhere around -10F/-23.5C) so the chances of me wandering our yard with my camera aren’t looking too great. To find the exact time it arrives in your location, check this link, or your favorite moon phase website/app.
Here’s my short-and-simple-as-possible breakdown of what it all means…
Here’s an excellent explanation, from the EarthSky website –
A supermoon is a new or full moon closely coinciding with perigee, the moon’s closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit.
According to the original definition of supermoon – coined by Richard Nolle in 1979 – a full moon or new moon has to come within 90 percent of its closest approach to Earth to be dubbed a supermoon. In other words, any full moon or new moon that comes to within 224,775 miles or 361,740 km (or less) of our planet, as measured from the centers of the moon and Earth, is a supermoon.
This year, in 2019, the moon at its closest point to Earth resides 221,681 miles (356,761 km) away. At this juncture, the moon is said to be at 100 percent of its closest approach for the year.
Astrologically speaking, I’ve found that Supermoons are a great time to perform spells that need a little extra power.
Blood Moon and the eclipse
Every year, October’s full moon is called “The Blood Moon” but this is something different, and related to the lunar eclipse. It comes from the reddish hue that happens during the process known (in my case, thanks to Google) as Rayleigh scattering.
A lunar eclipse in general is great for working spells to do with abundance, power, fertility, removing blocks, and psychic abilities, and a full lunar eclipse is extremely powerful.
From the Farmers’ Almanac –
Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the howling of wolves could be heard in the cold winter nights outside Indian villages. Thus, the name for January’s full moon, the Full Wolf Moon.
Full Moon in Leo
Regardless of what your Moon sign is… when the Moon is moving through Leo, regardless of how you normally feel, you will have a stronger desire to let others how you feel. You’ll be more apt to tell people that you love them, or express your appreciation for them. This might also be a time when there’s a strong urge to turn the romance and passion in your life up a notch.
Because Leo craves attention and adoration, a Leo Moon could leave you feeling more insecure than usual which could lead to a dramatic flare-up if your needs aren’t met. If you are a bit more sensitive and vulnerable during this transit, ask those around you for the reassurance you crave.
Leo is a sign of ideas and a sign of expressing yourself. You’ll be inclined to pursue an artistic outlet such as dance or theater, or a business endeavor of some kind. It could also be a time of getting out and socializing so that you can “perform” for others. After all, all the world’s a stage during the Moon in Leo!
Full moon rituals
I have a couple of full moon rituals I put together that I’m happy to share. This first one I created back in June 2015 for a post called Kickstarter & Full Moon Good Fortune Spell.
This one was put together for a blog swap kind of thing I did last August.
