A lot of people re asking me about the "Blood Moon"and what it "means". So I thought I'd talk about that a bit.
My understanding is that the Blood Moon is a term that seems to have been coined by some Christian pastors who are predicting the End of Days. That's about all I want to say about them, because I really don't care. Though I was born into a "Christian" family, my people have all really been unconscious Witches under cover, and so Christianity is not my point of reference. In fact, the Reverend at the church we almost never went to was a woman, so women in positions of spiritual power has never been a strange or revolutionary idea for me.
But I digress.
All that said, the term "Blood Moon" is kind of sexy, isn't it? So I like to use it, too. It can be used to describe lunar eclipses that are part of a tetrad, which is "four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between, each of which is separated from the other by six lunar months (six full moons)."---Earthsky.org. We've got 8 of them to work with in the 21st century. That's a lot of apocalypses! (or, what is the plural...apocalii? I don't know...)
I see this time leading up to the next Blood Moon Sept 27th in Aries as another signature of the Dark Goddess current that has been acting on the collective psyche. Or, perhaps the Red Goddess Current? This is indeed a time of great change, much of it happening below the surface. As Saturn moves out of Scorpio and into the sign of Sag again, much will come up to the surface. This is a "revelation" of a sort, and a shifting of an era. I do think of the Judgement card in the Tarot, otherwise known as the Aeon in the Thoth deck. But a little bit of reckoning never hurt anyone, has it? Haha!
What? not funny?...
Look...right now, on a personal level, it can be a wild time! See what you can do to stay grounded in your Feminine centers of intelligence and knowing (this can go for women and men). And if you are not sure what this means, consider meditating on that a bit and see what comes up. You are empowered to do that, without me or anyone else giving you clearance. I think that we are being invited right now to get even clearer on what is true for ourselves in our heart of hearts. This is the best navigational guide any of us can possible have. In perfect Love, and perfect Trust.
