This Week's Astrological Reading
This week we will experience the intense lunar energy of a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on Saturday the 11th February. A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth, and Moon align in an almost straight line. When this happens, the Earth blocks some of the Sun's light from directly reaching the Moon's surface, and covers a part of the Moon with the outer part of its shadow, also known as the penumbra.
Full Moon lunar eclipses emanate a particularly potent lunar energy and can send many of us into unstable emotional states or "crisis mode".
This crisis mode is primarily directed towards uncertainty and fear around feelings of fulfillment. This can range from worries around our direction in life and not feeling as though we are fulfilling our true potential in our careers. To our relationships and not feeling supported and emotionally fulfilled by our loved ones. We are driven by the realisation that we are lacking in areas of our life and a desire to fulfill these.
It is important that we not focus on the negative aspects of these realisations as they come to the surface. Instead, we should try to see them as opportunities for growth and change. Let this energy spurn you forward and motivate you to seek what you feel is missing from your life and put steps in place to make them happen.
As with all Full Moons the illumination of our lives by its bright light strips our souls bare. Its light creeps into all the dark corners of our consciousness, seeking to expose that which we have tried to keep hidden. These hidden truths are looking to break free during this lunar event and confront us. We cannot ignore them any longer.
Eclipses are powerful change motivators and they support us to move forward as the light of the full moon illuminates the path forward for us. There is nothing to be feared in change. By the time we are ready to make progress, our sub-conscious and higher self have already been preparing you to do so for longer then you have been aware. We realise during a transit such as this, that we have been ready to move forward for some time. We have just been waiting for a push to help us take that leap of faith. Wearing or keeping a piece of calcite crystal during times of change can assist you to make transitions with ease and assist you with the challenges associated with moving forward.
Everything moves so quickly these days, so just remember that soon you will look back on where you were and marvel at what how you could have been so afraid to take that step onward.
