The Nurturing Lunar Eclipse

This Lunar Eclipse will be a blue moon, and a blood moon as well!

The Nurturing Lunar Eclipse

Get ready for the ‘MOTHER’ of all Moons!!! Why? This intense and uplifting energy will not happen again until 2047!! I’m sure all of you beautiful people will have heard of the Blue Moon, BUT – we will also experience a blood moon – which is a SUPERMOON!!

The lunar eclipse on Wednesday January 31, 2018 is at 11 degrees Leo. The lunar eclipse January 2018 astrology centres on an extremely close alignment of the Moon and Ceres. With this particular moon, such energy will have a focus on women – the empowerment on all  women, –  single, partnered, married, or widowed. The roles in which all women will see themselves, as well as society at large is dramatically changing as a global and international society have seen over the past couple of years.  The moon rules women and traditional motherhood, while Ceres rules independent women and modern motherhood. The dynamics of traditional roles will be questions as women will question what they would wish to do with their own self-empowerment and development.

Lunar eclipse January 2018 will focus attention on single mothers and working mothers. Working single mothers really are super women. Juggling and balancing their lives as well as their loved ones.  The rights and freedoms of women in general are major themes of the January 31 lunar eclipse. Social discussions and political debate in this eclipse phase will include parenting styles, custody rights, maternity leave, childcare and equal pay.

The dynamics of traditional roles will be in questioned as women will brainstorm on what they would wish to do with their own self-empowerment and development. Now, this isn’t an ego thing, rather to put their own needs for a change FIRST. Remember, the Divine Feminine energy will be an ongoing theme for 2018, and beyond.

The Lunar Eclipse 

For this lunar eclipse will only be more intense and stronger. The main focus will be on  attention to detail within intimate relationships, family and home life. A total lunar eclipse will have a more profound impact on your personal life. The Sun opposite Moon qualities of emotions and instincts will reach their peak during the lunar eclipse. You will take a more objective look at your close relationships to see if there is balance and harmony. Everyone will be able to clearing see their own intentions and needs – and hence be able to notice if there is any relationships imbalances that may be causing disharmony.

In particular, when there’s a blotting out of the Moon during the total lunar eclipse – this represents the resetting of your emotions, clearing away any emotional baggage of the previous six months. You can truly see it as the ‘reset’ button if you like! This January 31st lunar eclipse marks the end of an eclipse phase which began with the August 7th, 2017 lunar eclipse. There will be a new eclipse phrase which will include the solar eclipse on 15 February 2018. It will last until the solar eclipse of 12 July 2018.

The January 31st, 2018 lunar eclipse falls at 11°37′ Leo Sign.  However, due to the procession of the equinoxes, this eclipse is in the Cancer Constellation.  The Moon is at home in the Cancer Constellation. This means that the Full Moon in January 2018 will be very powerful total eclipse of the Moon. The 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, will make you feel more caring and responsibility, with a charitable and fostering nature. The Moon in the Cancer Constellation is emotional, domestic and sensitive. Cancer and the Moon are more intuitive than logical.

This Lunar Eclipse has two main points:

The Moon: represents your emotions, subconscious, habits, memories, moods, mother, maternal instincts, nurturing, home and your need for security, as well as clairvoyance as well as a symbol for Archangel Haniel.

Minor Planet Ceres: rules motherly love, female reproductive issues, family bonds and relationships. Named after the Roman virgin goddess, Ceres represents independent single women and sole parents. (Yes, this does include single fathers as well!) Ceres being the grain goddess ruled agriculture hence the growing of plants, food crops, natural resources, harvest and the environment.

Lunar Eclipse Summary January 2018 

This lunar eclipse gives a sense of nurturing and caring of one’s family and loved ones. But on the other hand it is also a double edge sword of empowering one self to give the rights to all women who are seeking equality of recognition to work in highly-skilled jobs, access to education, access to health care, equal pay, and yes, still in some parts of our world the right to vote and be recognised for being women. Parts of these issues are political, sociality, cultural and religious debate which has no easy answers. HOWEVER, with this new lunar eclipse – the first step is to start a conversation….and hence a new beginning.

The role of divine woman has wholeheartedly changed. As women we have been given the choice to marry or not. The choice to have children or not. Yet they are choices – personal choices to make individually. Sometimes life deals with ALL OF US different cards, and again there’s no easy answers. There is also a energy to nurturing yourself as well as nurturing others.

You will realise with this blue moon, supermoon and lunar eclipse that these energies will require balance, understanding and patience. We each have both Divine feminine and masculine energies within our being, we each have a responsibility to search, to reflect within ourselves for our own nature as well as nurture.

Remember to all those who are mothers, (or fathers, step-parents, grand-parents or guardians) if you are single, partnered, married or widowed….you’re doing a FANTASTIC JOB! You are doing the best you can for your children!! (and step-children & grand-children!!)

For those aren’t parents, REMEMBER THIS: There are many ways to be a PARENT. YOU JUST NEED TO SHOW LOVE,  AND TO SHOW COMPASSION FROM YOUR HEART.  You don’t need to be a parent to pass on your DNA – you just need to have that loving heart. 

May you have a blessed Lunar Eclipse, Supermoon & Blue Moon.

Many blessings and love to y’all!

Libby xoxo

Card for today for Friday….

Card for today (Friday, January 19, 2018) – MAGDALENE
(Courtesy of Magdalene Oracle Cards by Toni Carmine Salerno)

How often do we seek to find solitude in the loving peace of our hearts? We sometimes forgot that we can find the answers we seek through finding them within ourselves. Trust your own intuition- for your own answers lies before you.

We ALL have divine feminine and masculine energies and today’s card calls you to be your own nurturer, comforter and yes, a mother to your own heart and soul.

Compassion, kindness and empathy come from a place of this Divine feminine energy. Despite what is occurring in the world without judgement, without name or shame; without seeking vengeance of others – seek to be a nurture FIRST of yourself before you nurture others.

You can speak your own truth, beloved ones but seek to balance your heart and soul with these Divine masculine and feminine energies. One isn’t better than the other and you can’t live one with the other.

In spiritual truth and in the eyes of the Divine – we are all equal.

Seek to love, to nurture, and to comfort with all your heart.

With blessings and love,

Libby 💖💖💖

Solar Eclipse & New Moon in Leo 29° Leo

Solar Eclipse & New Moon in Leo 29° Leo

For those who are lucky enough to view the solar eclipse ****PLEASE DON’T LOOK DIRECTLY INTO THE MOON!*** (as this can cause severe blindness and eye damage) You can purchase specially-made (and approved by a doctor) sun glasses for such an occasion. Please complete your own research.

The Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Leo at 29° Leo will commence on Monday, 21st August, 2017. The current energies of both moon phrases will lead to bold, confident and successful change of long-term plans. Be determined to move forward in whatever future endeavours you seek – as the energies will make you more courageous, stronger and passionate towards your cause.

As mentioned in previously astrology readings, New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings, creative births, fresh starts and a foundation towards one’s manifestations. With Solar Eclipses, this represents the ending of one cycle and the birthing of new cycle. (Please keep in mind that an eclipse cycle is not a new moon cycle of four weeks!)  
So with these strong and intense energies – everything is possible! Think of it as you are standing at a crossway with many roads to walk down and you can decide which road is the best pathway for you. You may feel such emotions as anticipation, enticement, anxiety, or stress.  These feelings are part of the life review for each person during the Mercury Retrograde in August 2017 as well.

Success both short and long-time will gradually bring new and positive changes thanks to the both energies of the New Moon and Solar Eclipse. Be aware to plan and to complete your research carefully. With persistence and effort, you can achieve what you have set out to accomplish.

With matters of the heart, discernment is best for both singles seeking love. You will experience the many ups and down in love turbulence because of the Mercury Retrograde in your love life. Use your best judgement when it comes to dating. With couples, communication is important between you and your partner. Don’t make any rash decisions without speaking to your significant other. Communication is key during this time of high influx of emotions – since everyone will slightly on edge for many reasons due to the Mercury Retrograde as well as the New Moon energies. For everyone – look into your own emotional needs and wants first, before taking any necessary action. Think before you act.

While you may have mixed emotions about long term planning about your future, the Solar Eclipse is also the opportunity to engage in the Divine Feminine. All of us, both men and women have both Divine masculine and feminine energies. Divine feminine is about being more awakened to the world around us – through both nurture, nature and of love.

For too long, the world has lived in Patriarchal ways, letting go of the repressed, old way of thinking, learning and even teaching of this limited ideas. I’m not saying that what we haven’t learnt is valid, it has been, but it is very outdate….and times have changed. Many of the old-fashioned behaviour are no longer permissible or intolerable. ALL of us are being called to a higher level of consciousness, and this is what the Divine feminine is here to teach all of us.

This new calling, for all humanity, is to be open to the new opportunities that await you. You will experience intuitive insights into your life. For each person it will be different. In order to embrace change, all of us need to be open to love, love for ourselves, love for each other, love for our world. We also need to seek forgiveness on individual and personal level for each other and for our world. With gratitude of the new beginnings for this wonderful New Moon and Solar Eclipse it is truly a gift from the Heavens.

With New Moon & Solar Eclipse Blessings to you all!!
