An excerpt from an article on the Blood Moon:
This Full Moon symbolizes ‘powerful endings, closure, clearing out, completion .’ It heralds a time of major transitions. It represents letting go, purging and releasing especially on an emotional and psychological level. Be brave and face death. A new birth is upon us, a collective yearning for something better to arise in our world. During the Full Moon phase in astrology, emotions tend to be like high tide in the Ocean. Surge of emotional intensity is now possible. There may be a lot more flowing out through tears, sorrow, pain and even joy. Consider the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Libra a time to restore the harmony and balance on many levels but especially the emotional. Relationship to your emotional self and emotional intimacy with others may be helpful now.
The combination of my birthday and the Blood Moon means an exceptional new beginning. The clearing out of the toxic, the restoration of harmony and balance.
When I left my ma’s house in Orange County and headed back to LA the other day, my mom kissed me good bye and told me “This is going to be a great year for you!”
I looked at her and told her I had no doubt – why? Because it HAD to be better than this last year. It was inevitable.
This last year I had the WORST job as a personal assistant, a horrible end to my previously wonderful relationship, and an apartment from hell with massive amounts of illegal construction — where I still reside with my ex-hunny!
So I’m ready! I’m ready for this new year of life, and I’m read for the Blood Moon to sweep out the toxic and restore balance.
The irony of it all is that the Blood Moon focuses on relationships – and I stood on top of the roof of my building and watched the process of the Blood Moon with my ex-hunny. If that’s not symbolism I dunno what is. I still don’t know where our relationship is going – if we will be able to be friends after we move out. So while I understand that last night was a metaphor, I’m not yet fully aware to what extent. We shall see.
