Time for a total eclipse of the heart, loves: It’s a Supermoon and Lunar Eclipse in Leo! This moon is also known as a “Blue Moon”, as it’s the second of two Full Moons in one month. The last rare convergence of a super moon, lunar eclipse, and blue moon happened 150 years ago, in 1866. Eclipses are omens of change, spurring actions and encouraging us to look in new directions. As Leo loves the spotlight, this lunation asks you to share your talents and seek recognition for your accomplishments. As long as you are acting in alignment with your integrity, how you are received when you put yourself out there can be a valuable lesson and guide. Are you honest about your skills and your needs, and this is received poorly? Perhaps it’s time to move on. Are you witnessed and honored? You’re in the right place, or on the right path!
This moon encourages us to make a move toward the sovereignty of the self. We are feeling the push to take ownership of ourselves and the narratives that we are writing about our lives. Leo in its highest vibration is all about following the song of your unguarded heart. The best qualities of this sign–generosity, gregariousness, loyalty, creativity, and kindness–are all also qualities of the divine inner child within us, who acts with total openness in the pursuit of joy and play. Underlying issues are coming to the surface, from within ourselves and the systems we’ve built around us. This Full Moon can shine a light on where that guileless and whimsical spirit is encouraged and where it is stifled, and asks us to take the responsibility and the initiative to course-correct if necessary.
It can be a challenge to discern the difference between and shift your perspective from the reasoned thinking of the mind to the longings of the heart (after all, analytical thinking is just so *logical*–a seeming boon when we’re seeking answers). One good method to try to drop into your heart’s knowing is to put your hands on your heart, close your eyes, and breathe deeply a few times. Think of the issue at hand, and note how you feel in your body as you hold it in your mind. Heavy, with fears and worries and what-ifs? Or light, playful, and expansive? If the logistical details were no object, which choice feels more freeing? Use the power of this Super Moon Eclipse to steady your intention as you choose what YOU really want, set your heartfelt sights upon it, and aim true. <3
