Harnessing an Optimal State of Clarity – Totally Eclipsed Super Full Blue Moon in Leo

JEAN-LÉON GÉRÔME  Ashtanga Yoga Panama Moonday Horoscope Astrology

“Take in your strengths, your lessons, your best persons, and say yes to the new changes and adventures that are about to come."

The Super Blue Moon in Leo is happening the 31st of January 2018, at 2:27 PM (CET +1:00), or at 7:27 AM (EST -5:00) with a total Lunar Eclipse.

At the end of this article, you will find a link to a simple ritual* to attain confidence during this time.

Full Moons and New Moons happen once a month. Whenever there are two Full Moons in the same month, the second Full Moon receives the name of the Blue Moon.

In addition, she is at 360,362 km away from Earth, so she is very close, and enters in the category of a Super Moon, which means she will seem bigger to our eyes.

And to top this, there will also be a Total Lunar Eclipse with this Full Moon.

So, even if we cannot see the Lunar Eclipse this special night, we can still contemplate the majesty of the Super Blue Moon in the majestic sign of Leo.

With this triple category, and with fire and explosive energy, this Full Moon is coming with a great potential and special opportunities for all of us.

The Moon is in the mighty sign of Leo, conjoined with the North Node; while the Sun is in the electric sign of Aquarius, conjoined with the South Node.

Two bombastic words we see here: the mighty and the electric. Looking at these two words, from a growth-oriented perspective, they indicate important and strong changes, both internally and externally.

On the Sun’s side, we have a conjunction of the Sun, Venus, the South Node and the asteroid Juno in Aquarius. From an evolutionary perspective, the symbolism reflects all the strain and the tension that has been present from the last two months, and which was massive in the past Capricorn month, together with that powerful Jupiter-Mars conjunction that happened in Scorpio. It indeed left us a little bit unwired and disintegrated at a constitutional level.

It was certainly a time of confusion, some chaos and possible suppression. We might have felt as if chained, suppressed, and as if there was not a visible solution for whatever we might have been going through.

We might have felt restricted by the external authority/duties/pressure and as if there was not a viable way to accomplish a dream, or to solve a problem. Some might have felt this time stronger than others. Some situations might have been more tender, or tenser. It depends. But the sensation of limitation and restriction was there.

Now that the Sun is in Aquarius, together with Venus, the South Node and Juno, there is a way out. Aquarius is fixed air, and its smooth breeze comes to us with a core refreshment, with a powerful lightning. Liberation comes along with it, as we start feeling mentally clearer, focused and determined.

As our minds become accessible and uncomplicated, we start to see a way out. We start to generate ideas and solutions. Our attitude becomes plainer and the way we see the world changes from negative to positive. We also start to relate with friends or people with whom we share interests and views.

In love relationships, Juno re-activates the passion and the electric feeling of the relationship at all levels. Also the commitment of learning and growing together, and the acceptance of what the other offers or brings into the relationship is solidified. Some might even say that one of Juno’s secrets is the practice of tantra.

This positive shift brings an electric feeling of excitement for life, for action, for solving problems, and for generating new ways to achieve purposes. New purposes. If we go back to the beginning of this Lunation with the New Moon in Capricorn, we can review those goals we have set for the short-medium-term, and now look at them with brighter eyes. The eyes from the Sun in Aquarius.

Take in all what you have learned from the past, take in your capabilities, and take in your strengths. The freedom of the spirit is around the corner. The action is now!
