If you're like me, you would rather have the awareness ahead of time so you can course correct or prepare for what's up ahead. I find Moon energies are no different and wanted to share this info with you for tomorrow, January 31st. Here is some amazing info by Melissa Corter - Enjoy!
January 31st 2018 Blue Moon, Super Moon, & Total Lunar Eclipse
One of the most powerful moons energetically in all of 2018 shines upon us on January 31st. We will encounter a rare and glorious cosmic adventure: a Blue moon, Super moon, and total Lunar Eclipse, a rare event for all to occur at once!
A Blue Moon is an additional Full Moon occurring in a single month or season when there has already been one Full Moon. It is not blue or a different color, it is just the name given the “extra” moon of this time.
A Super Moon is either a Full Moon or a New Moon appearing larger because of the distance it is on its orbit in relation to the earth. A Super Moon is a new or Full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to earth in a given orbit (perigee). Basically, earth, moon and sun are all in a line, with moon in its nearest approach to earth.
Have you been feeling ready to cleanse or purge since before the holiday season? It could be due to the energy of the eclipse since many people intuitively are tuning in to this potent energy for up to 90 days’ prior. For some, this enhanced energy can feel wonky to the nervous system; if so, you can transmute it into creative power.
Lunar eclipses occur only during a Full Moon when the moon passes behind the earth into the earth’s shadow and the moon, sun, and earth are completely aligned. During a lunar eclipse, Earth’s shadow blocks the sun’s light, which otherwise reflects off the moon. A Lunar eclipse can last for hours whereas a solar eclipse is usually completed within moments.
There are three types of eclipses, total, partial and penumbral — with the most dramatic being a total lunar eclipse, in which Earth’s shadow completely covers the moon.
“The moon had been observing the earth close-up longer than anyone. It must have witnessed all of the phenomena occurring – and all of the acts carried out – on this earth. But the moon remained silent; it told no stories. All it did was embrace the heavy past with a cool, measured detachment. On the moon there was neither air nor wind. Its vacuum was perfect for preserving memories unscathed. No one could unlock the heart of the moon.”
A total eclipse is believed to energetically have an effect on us anywhere from the next 6 months up to a full year. The type of impact you receive is determined by your personal sign in your astrology chart.
Since this is a lunar eclipse, we focus on release, letting go, and witnessing our manifestations. What are you really ready to release? It is in your favor to choose something BIG because we are dealing with BIG energy and support during this time.
Blue Moon + Total Lunar Eclipse + Super Moon = Potent Spiritual Transformation … if you are open and willing to receive it. Consider it a complete reset of the subconscious mind, a beautiful opportunity to start over in harmony with the desire of your individual soul calling.
Eclipses stir things up, and the things that surface from this are usually out of harmony with your intentions, desires, or goals. This provides an opportunity for you to shift, heal, cleanse, clear, and learn from them.
Tip for this Lunar Eclipse:
* Eclipses are not the best times for making important decisions, like Mercury retrograde, it is a time to reflect, let go, and clear out … not necessarily to start something brand new.
* Ask your spirit for guidance or assistance. There is a gift in this for you, consider asking the following: where are you ready to develop spiritually? What is ready for healing? How can you awaken to the intuitive, emotional, and deep feeling part of you?
* This is a wonderful time to discover, access, and align with your true power.
You have a magical & mystical gateway of opportunity available during this Lunar Eclipse. Harness the energy it contains to help you heal in an area of your life where you may have struggled, or even felt was a lost cause, all is possible, and this is the time to believe and watch the magic unfold.
Consider the doorway into your subconscious mind wide open; ready to be reprogrammed by you. This eclipse can provide insight into how you may respond emotionally to life for a six month to one-year period of time following the eclipse.
This mystical portal of lunar energy has enormous blessings to bestow upon you, prepare to receive them, with open arms, and open heart. It can also direct you into deep pockets of memory, ancient insights, and healing within your subconscious mind. Let yourself wander freely into the experience; you will be pleasantly surprised with the gems spirit has hidden in this cosmic pilgrimage.

Do you ever feel like you’re banging your head against the wall?
I know I sure do at times!
In a class I recently attended, I asked how to move beyond this. How to create the way I’d like to. The answer kind of rocked my world. There are a few parts to it…
You see, when we choose something in our lives, we are choosing more, less than or the same.
Ultimately, when we choose something, we will begin to do what is required to make it happen or we choose to escape. In choosing to escape, we can come up all sorts of justifications, that aren’t even real, as to why we can’t have something, like not having the money, or the time or the resources.
The instructor then shared with me, “We are the only ones who can work against us.”
Shit. Mind blown.
Hence, banging our heads against the wall. When we pick something that is not actually in alignment with what we really, really want, we can drive ourselves nuts trying to make it work. Instead, we can stop and ask the Universe for directions and be willing to change course completely or make slight adjustments along the way.
When we are willing to ask for more, we can create more. And, not asking from a place of what we think might be good for us, but really getting clear on what does work for us and what we would really like to have and choosing from this place.
He added, “Once we learn to deal with the Universe in a creative, expansive way, we will see more possibilities and will choose what works for us, always creating more.”
I used to think if I had all my ducks in a row, took another class, had more experience, THEN I could choose something, when in fact, the Universe works the opposite…
When we CHOOSE something, even if we have no idea how it will work out, the Universe gets busy showing us the way, providing the next steps and helping us move toward making our choices a reality.
The Universe not only has our back, the Universe sees us the way we see ourselves. Do you see yourself as magical? Do you see yourself as the creator and source of your happiness, joy and abundance?
Food for thought with your choosing and creating…
· Are you willing to choosing what works for you?
· Are you willing to asking for greater?
· Once you choose, are you creating or escaping?
· Are you willing to ask the Universe to show you a different way?
What incredible, magical world are you now willing to choose and ask for?
Sending sparkles your way!
