Blood Moon

Blood Moon is sometimes used to describe a Total Lunar Eclipse. When the Earth casts its shadow on a Full Moon and eclipses it, the Moon may get a red glow.

The term Blood Moon has been frequently used to refer to total lunar eclipses. Some sources suggest that the term stems from the Bible. Christian pastors Mark Blitz and John Hagee claim that the eclipses of the 2014-2015 lunar tetrad fulfill a Biblical prophecy of forthcoming difficult and trying times.

Astronomers do not use Blood Moon as a scientific term. However, it is possible that the term came to describe total lunar eclipses because of the reddish color the eclipsed Moon takes on during totality. This happens because of Rayleigh scattering, the same mechanism that causes colorful sunrises and sunsets.

A Rare Eclipse of a Supermoon  occur on the full Moon of September 27/28 – the Moon will be closest to the Earth. or at its perigee, as it turns into a full Moon. A rising Super Full Moon can look larger and brighter to spectators on Earth.

Total eclipses of Super Full Moons are rare. According to NASA, they have only occurred 5 times in the 1900s – in 1910, 1928,1946, 1964 and 1982. After the September 27/ 28, 2015 Total Lunar Eclipse, a Supermoon eclipse will not happen again for another 18 years, until October 8, 2033.

Here are the insights from Cathy Pagano on Wisdom of Astrology:

“This month’s Aries Full Moon is very powerful, so don’t be surprised by the surprises that come your way.
“It’s the Harvest Moon, the Full Moon closest to the Autumn Equinox. It is the 4th consecutive Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in the last two years, a rare occurrence called a tetrad.
“It is also the second and most powerful Super Moon this year, when the Moon comes the closest to Earth in its elliptical orbit—as well as closely aligning with the Lunar Nodes. This means the Moon will look BIG!
“So this lunar eclipse will create extra strong tides and energy flows, disrupting sleep and energy levels.
“Added to this, when eclipses occur near the equinoxes, a time when the Earth’s magnetic field decreases, they aid us in making rapid changes, releasing old energy patterns so there’s energy available to create new forms.
“Needless to say, the energies will be intense. Give these energies a week or so to calm down before you try to integrate what you’ve learned…”
“All four Eclipses occurred in the signs of Aries and Libra because the Lunar Nodes have been moving through these signs for the past year and half. The Lunar Nodes point to a collective lesson we all have to work through, old patterns to be dropped and new lessons to be learned.
“With the South Node in Aries, we’ve been called on to let go of our old behavior patterns of reacting to situations with anger, domination and aggression, as well as our need to ‘go it alone’.
“The Libra North Node calls us to learn cooperation, diplomacy and partnership equality…”
“With this last Aries Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse, it’s time tointegrate the endings, awakenings, transformations and death and rebirth experiences related to the balance of Self and Other, completing our initiation into a more balanced exchange between the masculine and feminine energies of life as well as between women and men.
“All new things start with our choices. Our free will is our greatest gift, and yet many people don’t use theirs. That’s when we get stuck in life and can’t seem to find a way out.
“Being a victim entails not seeing options in our lives. We shut down on life. Being an optimist means that we see different opportunities and choices we can make. There are possibilities in life.
“Choices begin the process of change. Our brain chemistry changes when we make choices. Making a choice signals our brain that we’re ready to begin a journey. So the choice is the first step in changing our behaviors….”
“Lunar Eclipses occur when the shadow of the Earth moves across the face of the Moon, cutting off the sunlight.
“Usually, full Moons help us become aware of something within us, some feeling or belief that we keep hidden. At a Lunar Eclipse, these feelings and beliefs come out unconsciously. You could say, our shadow is showing.
“So look for your Shadow turning up this weekend, and instead of pushing it back into the Unconscious, embrace it, name it and allow it into your life.
“This is the ultimate choice—stay open to all of yourself and own it. Then take it into your relationships and work consciously to include those rejected parts of yourself.
“If your partners are strong, they’ll accept these elements of your personality and learn to work with them. The point is to keep your standpoint, try to find the compromises that work for both of you, and communicate with grace, openness and love….”
“The Sabian symbol for the Moon at 5 * Aries is: A triangle with wings. This mystical symbol lifts us to a higher level of consciousness, helping us envision new possibilities. The triangle is related to the number 3, the energy of process and becoming. With the wings attached, the symbol shows us a process of ascension and awakening.”

    September Equinox

    The earliest humans spent more time outside than we do. They used the sky as both a clock and a calendar. They could easily see that the sun’s path across the sky, the length of daylight, and the location of the sunrise and sunset all shift in a regular way throughout the year.

    The name EQUINOX comes from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night).

    There are two equinoxes every year – in September and March – when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night is nearly equal.

    Seasons are opposite on either side of the Equator, so the equinox in September is also known as the Autumnal (fall) equinox in the northern hemisphere  and the Spring (vernal)  equinox in the Southern Hemisphere.
    Sun over Earth’s equator at equinox

    The September equinox (or Southward equinox) is the moment when the sun appears to cross the celestial equator, heading southward. Due to differences between the calendar year and the tropical year, the September equinox can occur at any time from the 21st to the 24th day of September.

    The September equinox coincides with many cultural events, religious observances and customs. 

    In many cultures, the September equinox is a sign of fall (autumn) in the northern hemisphere. In Greek mythology fall is associated with when the goddess Persephone returns to the underworld to be with her husband Hades. It was supposedly a good time to enact rituals for protection and security as well as reflect on successes or failures from the previous months.

    The Christian church replaced many early Pagan equinox celebrations with Christianized observances. For example, Michaelmas (also known as the Feast of Michael and All Angels), on September 29, fell near the September equinox.

    In the Chinese tradition, the autumn season is associated with the color white, the sound ofweeping, the emotions of both courage and sadness, the lung organ, the metal element, and awhite tiger. Autumn is also connected in Chinese thought with the direction west, considered to be the direction of dreams and visions.
    In China the Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival, is celebrated around the time of the September equinox. It celebrates the abundance of the summer's harvest and one of the main foods is the mooncake filled with lotus, sesame seeds, a duck egg or dried fruit.

    To celebrate this Equinox , I suggest you watching the sky, just go outside around sunset or sunrise and notice the location of the sun on the horizon with respect to familiar landmarks.

      Do It Anyway

      “Do It Anyway”

      People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered; 

      ~ Forgive them anyway.

      If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; 

      ~ Be kind anyway.

      If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; 

      ~ Succeed anyway.

      If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; 

      ~ Be honest and frank anyway.

      What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; 

      ~ Build it anyway.

      If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous: 

      ~ Be happy anyway.

      The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; 

      ~ Do good anyway.

      Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough; 

      ~ Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

      You see, in the final analysis it is between you and God; 

      It was never between you and them anyway.

      ~ Mother Teresa

      Muitas vezes as pessoas são egocêntricas, ilógicas e insensatas. 
      ~ Perdoe-as assim mesmo.

      Se você é gentil, as pessoas podem acusá-lo de egoísta, interesseira. 
      ~Seja gentil assim mesmo.

      Se você é um vencedor, terá alguns falsos amigos, e alguns inimigos verdadeiros. 
      ~Vença assim mesmo.

      Se você é honesto e franco as pessoas podem enganá-lo.
      ~ Seja honesto e franco assim mesmo.

      O que você levou anos para construir, alguém pode destruir de uma hora para outra. 
      ~ Construa assim mesmo.

      Se você tem paz e é feliz, as pessoas podem sentir inveja. 
      ~ Seja feliz assim mesmo.

      O bem que você faz hoje pode ser esquecido amanhã.
      ~ Faça o bem assim mesmo.

      Dê ao mundo o melhor de você, mas isso pode nunca ser o bastante.
      ~Dê o melhor de você assim mesmo.

      Veja você que, no final das contas, é entre você e Deus. 
      Nunca foi entre você e as outras pessoas".

      ~ Madre Teresa
