Happy Blue Moon to You My Moonlights!!
So... this Full Moon in Leo is a super duper special one!!
It's the 2nd Full Moon in 1 month!! That is a special occurrence and one we call "Blue Moon". You know, you have heard the saying "Once in a Blue Moon" ? Well now you know what it means. Even though the saying is what it is... in reality Blue Moons happen every 2.7 years.
How lucky are we to be able to release the things that no longer serve us not just once this month, but twice!!!
In addition to all that extra sweeping away abilities we have the month... we also are blessed with a Lunar Eclipse!!
The Lunar Eclipse will start to take place on Wednesday Jan. 31st, 2018 at 2:51 am PST.
The Moon on 1/31 will be closer to our Earth. The SuperMoon will look 14% bigger and 30% brighter than normal.
Another term you might hear during this time is that the Full Moon is in perigee.
Perigee: The point on the Moon's orbit closest to Earth.
Apogee: The point on the Moon's orbit farthest away from Earth.
Is another word you will hear the Moon called during this time... basically it's the triple threat!!
SuperMoon, BlueMoon and the Total Lunar Eclipse!
I'm excited to announce that

TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE ...
We are in for a treat tonight as the 1st Lunar Eclipse in 2018 will be under way!!
The Lunar Eclipse can only happen on a Full Moon. This is the only time when it's possible for the Moon to be directly opposite of the Sun in our sky... and pass through the Earth's dark umbral shadow!
This total Lunar Eclipse is also known as a "Blood Moon" as the moon will appear blood red! What happens is the Moon will be entirely inside the Earths dark umbral shadow. ((Umbral: Inner core of total darkness,The disc of the Sun is completely blocked.)) This usually takes place about 1hour 40mins in the umbral. All and all the whole "show" of this Total Lunar Eclipse can last up to 6 hours long as it moves from umbral and back out again.
There are some reports that claim we haven't seen a Blue Moon Eclipse in 150 years, however....
The last time we had a Blue Moon, Lunar Eclipse on Earth was Dec. 30th, 1982. However it's been 150 years since America has witness this lovely event! So it's been quite sometime since we had one...so we are lucky duckies to be able to witness this one!!
Eclipses always come in pairs. The Lunar Eclipse always occurs 2 weeks before or after a Solar Eclipse. Unlike Solar Eclipses that are only visible in specific places, Lunar Eclipses are visible from anywhere, so long as it's night time!
The Next Eclipse we will have is a Solar Eclipse on Feb. 15th, 2018 and it will be a partial Solar Eclipse. Remember to be kind to your eyes and NEVER look directly into a Solar Eclipse!
When To See It...
If you live in North America or the Hawaiian Islands... the Lunar Eclipse will be visible for you before sunrise on Jan. 31st, 2018.
If you live in the Middle East, Australia, Asia, New Zealand, or Indonesia you will be seeing the Lunar Eclipse the evening hours after sunset on Jan. 31st, 2018.
The best time for us here in California to see this Lunar Eclipse will be right before the time of totality (6:08 am) For us here on the West Coast... here is the breakdown of how this amazing Eclipse will take place:
Pacific Standard Time (January 31, 2018) Partial umbral eclipse begins: 3:48 a.m. PST Total eclipse begins: 4:52 a.m. PST Greatest eclipse: 5:30 a.m. PST Total eclipse ends: 6:08 a.m. PST Partial umbra eclipse ends: 7:11 a.m. PST Moon may set before end of partial umbra eclipse

Lunar Eclipse Energy...
Lunar eclipses signify a time of great change and upheaval. Eclipses are designed to put us on the "right" path whether we realize it or not. You might notice during this time that things could change abruptly... relationships, jobs, careers, friendships etc. The energy will bring up repressed feelings or emotions during this time as well. This will help you take closer looks at personal relationships you have. When you are in tune with your own needs & intentions, and of those around you...you will be able to see clearly and will be able to fix any unbalances that come up during this time.
You will notice the energy of the Lunar Eclipse 3 days before and 3 days after. So during this time is when you will notice things change swiftly! All and all.. the Eclipse is here to help you, not hurt you. It's here to push us into the right path we are meant to be on! It's the Universes way of saying... "Hey You.. the time is NOW, no more putting off the change you need in your life!"
So enjoy the energy and keep a positive mind set as any changes come your way!

What to Expect When the Full Moon is in Leo...
You will notice a burst of energy and you will be feeling a lot more optimistic during this time! You will feel like you can do anything!! It will also be a time where you wanted to receive compliments and be appreciated. As this is all ok, make sure that you are also generous sharing your kind words with others!
It will also be a good time to for a celebration, presentations and social events. Make sure to stay in balance and within harmony of yourself.
People Born When the Moon is in Leo...
You will affected less than others during this time as Leo is a Sun sign, this means the Moon has less of an affect on you. You are more affected by the Sun. You are an open person who likes attention. You are a natural leader. People who are born when the Moon is in Leo are also storytellers and you have the knack of easily impression people.
Season Of The Moon...
Each Full Moon bring a Name of the Season in which the Moon is in. The Ancients used the method of naming the Full Moons each month to know what time of the year they were in, as they didn’t have handy dandy calendars or smart phones to tell them back then.
Wolf Moon/Chaste Moon: The most vocal time you will hear the Wolfs howl is during the first part of the year. Thus our Native American Ancients naming this Full Moon, Wolf Moon!
A time of awakening, envisioning, beginning and conceiving, rest, protection. Calls for cleaning and rental as the new year begins, it’s a time for starting over, washing away the past, and fresh beginnings.
I will see you for my live feed on Wednesday 1/31!! Looking forward to sharing this amazing and powerful ritual with you!!
Light, Loves & Lunar Hugs,
