Super Blue Blood Moon: 1/31/2018
On 31st January 2018 a rare celestial event will take place in our skies and humanity will experience an extraordinarily transformation both physically and spiritually. Get ready for a blood moon, a total lunar eclipse, a supermoon and a blue moon, all taking place on the same day which has been dubbed as a “super blue blood moon”
The last time the three elements combined at the same time was in 1866. For 2018 we are being told that the trifecta will be best visible from the western hemisphere but whether one can see the magical displays of the moon or not it does not matter as the energy is still potent and will affect all.
In this article I am not going to go into the science behind this occasion but I am going to focus on the esoteric and energetic symbolism and how its influences will affect planet Earth and all who dwell upon her.
Firstly, let us look at the day that this is going to happen which is a Wednesday. Wednesday corresponds with the planet Mercury which rules the astrological sign of Gemini and air which is connected with travel, astral travel and projection, wisdom, intellect, science, communication, divination, information and networking.
What is also exciting is that January is named after the two faced deity Janus who is identified with Gemini and again associated with Mercury.
Janus represents beginnings and transitions, gates, doors, endings and time. With it’s two faces it is looking to the past and to the future, from one universe to another and although this deity has been classed as male, more ancient texts explain that Janus has one male face and one female face, representing the Great Work/divine marriage completed, of the union of male and female to express the androgynous. This development in the celestial bodies in the sky correspond with my previous channelings which you can read HERE and HERE.
The Greek manifestation of Mercury is Hermes who is known as the emissary and messenger of the gods. He was also known ‘the divine trickster’ and ‘the god of boundaries and the transgression of boundaries.’ Hermes moves freely between the mortal and divine worlds and is a conductor of soul into the afterlife.
Now let us look at the numerology of this date. 3 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 8 = 1 + 6 = 7. Below you will see some of the symbolism corresponding with the number 7:
According to Amboise, the number 7 symbolism virginity and is representative of the Holy Spirit to which are attributed the same properties.
The seven indicates the senses of a change after an accomplished cycle and of a positive renewal and is the perfect number and symbol of divine abundance
It is the number of the perfect man, complete and perfectly realized as the sum of the four females and the three males as well as being the symbol of the totality of the created Universe (3 the sky + 4 the earth), it expresses the creation within which the man evolves.
Abellio saw it as infinite numbered in its return to the principle, that of the snake, the ouroboros, which bites its tail. It would be also the number of the achievement in the space-time.
It is also considered to be the number of the initiation, that is to say the union of exhibited with the infinity and the Egyptians saw it as the symbol of eternal life and a complete cycle, a dynamic perfection.
For the Indians in the prairie and the “Pueblo” Indians, the number seven represents the cosmic coordinate of the man.
The “Dogons” consider the number seven as the symbol of the union of the opposites, of the resolution of dualism, therefore like symbol of unicity and perfection. It is also the mark of the master of the word.
The seven symbolizes the cross with its six directions plus the center – indefinite extents moving toward the top, the bottom, the right, the left, forwards and backwards.
The man would be composed of seven souls according to Plato and also according to Hindus.
It also represents the Seven Chakras, 7 classical planets, the Moon passes through stages of 7 days in increase, full, decrease, and renewal, 7 colors on the rainbow, 7 days on a week, 7 sisters on the pleiades and the seven emblems of the Buddha.
Now let us look at the meanings of each moon:
A supermoon happens when the full moon coincides with the moon’s closest approach to Earth in its orbit. Supermoons make the moon appear a little brighter and closer than normal.
The Maine Farmer’s Almanac defines a Blue Moon as an extra full moon that occurs in a season.
The phenomenon whereby the moon in total eclipse appears reddish in colour as it is illuminated by sunlight filtered and refracted by the earth’s atmosphere.
TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE
A total lunar eclipse happens when the whole moon enters Earth’s shadow. Some sunlight still reaches the moon, but first it goes through Earth’s atmosphere.
FULL MOON LORE IN GENERAL
For the practitioners of the craft and the students of the esoteric, the cycles and phases of the moon play a very important part in their workings and their way of living. For this day, we are focusing on the full moon which is the time to work on releasing anything that is no longer productive in our lives but it is also the day to work on protection, increasing intuition, divination and connecting with the divine and taking the energies of the moon into us. It is also a great time to charge crystals, talismans, ourselves and basically anything with the moon’s energy.
The full moon was also the time of the Sabbatu in Babylon when people were meant to rest and not perform any activities because the Goddess Inanna was menstruating and this is why when a woman receives her period it is called her ‘moon time’.
On the seventh day when the crescent moon reaches its fullness (Inanna’s Sabbatu/Sabbath),
You bathe and sprinkle Your face with holy water.
You cover Your body with the long woolen garments of queenship.
You fasten combat and battle to your side;
You tie them into a girdle and let them rest.
-Sumerian hymn quotes from from Wolkstein and Kramer’s Inanna Queen of Heaven.
The moon is connected with emotions, mother and maternal instinct, with water mysticism, magic, intuition, memories, moods, the home and security. The astrologers express that this full moon will fall into the astrological sign of Cancer.
The Astrology King explains:
“The Moon is at home in Cancer Constellation, meaning full moon January 2018 will be a very powerful total eclipse of the Moon. Cancer the Crab rules the home and family, mothers, mothering, housework and comfort. It is emotional, domestic, intuitive and sensitive. The Crab, and this lunar eclipse, should make you more caring and responsibility, with a charitable and fostering nature. The Moon in Cancer Constellation is emotional, domestic and sensitive. Cancer and the Moon are more intuitive than logical.”
But a Supermoon always falls opposite the lunar apogee which is what is called Black Moon Lilith.
Regardless of what some neo-pagans and new agers believe, Lilith is the opposing force of Inanna who is represented by Venus but also the moon. While Inanna/Venus represents divine love, sexuality, the soul, the alchemical marriage, the mother archetype, the resurrector, the empowerer, creatrix and is the divine bride and mother of the sun, Lilith symbolises lust, the destroyer and energy drainer and the bride of Samael. Working with Goddess Inanna means working with the divine energies whereas working with Lilith is dealing with the energies of the abyss.
Nadia Gilchrist explains:
“Black Moon Lilith and Venus are close to the Sun, so the energy of the dangerous woman, moving to unite with more traditional expressions of womanhood (Venus in Capricorn) will be part of this Moon. We have the mother (Moon) opposing the witch/outsider (Lilith) and the lady who attracts (Venus).”
I am not an astrologer but as a student of the mysteries I understand the ancient symbolism and movement of the celestial bodies in conjunction with the gods (and demons) and what the above is telling us in the below is that Lilith is looking for war with Inanna/Venus over the ways of the woman and also over the influence of the sun who is the divine groom. We see here that Lilith is being rejected as it was told in the first poem in history about Inanna and the Huluppu tree where Lilith made her nest in Inanna’s Tree of Life and which Inanna rejected her and wanted her gone. You can read about this in my article by clicking HERE
So let us take a step back and examine all the symbolism we have here and READ THE PATTERNS.
This Super blue blood moon is bringing with it the energies of the alchemical divine marriage which is the uniting of the opposites within us and in our world but we are going to find ourselves and the conscious of our world torn between doing what our intuition tells us to do and what is right and with that which our ego is tempting us to do.
There is a war that we will experience on a subconscious and material level between the Queen of Heaven (Inanna/Venus) and the queen of the abyss (Lilith). Lilith moves to destroy family structures and misleads women into misusing their sexual power while Inanna is the home and foundation builder who also represents the strong and independent woman with powerful opinions and values, who empowers other women in general and guides women to use their sexual power on an intellectual level. As she is the Goddess of both genders, she will express equality of the sexes while Lilith will try to disempower men and create more imbalance between the male and female energies in our society.
With the frequencies of Mercury the gates of ‘heaven’ are opening and we can connect and communicate with the divine and celestial beings easier as it is also a time of the thinning of the veil between worlds. Prayers are stronger and more powerful and messages between ourselves and our spiritual support team and loved ones who have passed are easier to interpret. It is also the time that we can speak to others we have not spoken to in a very long time and to mend bridges and forgive and ask for forgiveness. Whatever involves communication which you have been planning to focus on, do it now.
If you are looking to empower and strengthen your intuitive abilities then this event offers the perfect environment to do this as well as giving a helping ‘leg up’ in your ascension process.
With 7 being the magical number presiding upon this day, renewal and rebirth are close at hand and those who wish to ‘shed’ their old skin can work on dying to the self in order to be reborn into a new life of the person you wish to become.
The eclipse affects us in a truly positive way as it helps us through the journey of walking from the darkness of ignorance and the unknowing into the light of illumination and enlightenment.
This is the time for new beginnings and doors opening so should you have any projects or plans now is the time to plant those seeds so that they grow into fruition in the near future. This is a fantastic energy to practice your manifestation skills even if you are a beginner.
The only boundaries are those you put on yourself so now is a great time to move past all boundaries and self limitations and anything else that has held you back from reaching your goals. All is mental and Mercury being the intellectual archetype that he is, empowers us with his vibrations to mentally push past anything that is holding us down.
With the energies of the moon being so purifying, it is on this occasion that you begin to let go of things, situations and even people who no longer produce a positive outcome in your life. These vibrations also offer deep healing for those needing it whether it be emotional, spiritual physical or all of your aspects combined.
Men and women can invoke the energies of Mercury, the moon and Venus in order to become empowered and at one with the divine.
We have a very powerful Supermoon that will really pack a punch physically which people will already have begun to feel. Some of the symptoms can also include:
*Bouts of crying, laughter and feelings of euphoria
*Feeling ungrounded and like you are not part of the moment
*Feeling like the ground is moving beneath you
*People and/or memories coming back into your mind and life from the past
To combat these symptoms remember why you are feeling this way and also make sure you drink plenty of water and eat well at each meal time. Practice grounding exercises but most of all EMBRACE these energies.
