What to Expect When the Full Moon is in Leo...
Get ready for a sudden burst of energy coming your way!! When the Moon is in Leo, that is what you'll be feeling energy mixed in with optimism. You will feel like anything you can put your mind to you can do!! During this time, you might also notice that your looking for validation from others on your accomplishments. As it's nice to receive compliments...make sure you return the favor today to others as well! It's a super good time for celebrations, presentations and social gatherings!
People Born When the Moon is in Leo...
You will be affected a bit less that normal if your Moon Sign is Leo as the Sun is what will affect you most as the Sun is your ruling planet. Leo Moon Signs are ones who are usually open, you enjoy attention and are born leaders! You can tell a great story and you are one to easily impress others!
The following Crystals are most beneficial to work with when the Moon is in Leo.
If you are in Sun/Star Sign of Leo, these Crystals will also be of benefit for you to work with. They will balance you out, allowing the positive within your sign to be amplified and the negative to be less of an affect on you.
Tiger's Eye: One of my more recent favorites that I've been working with daily!! When I look at this Crystal, it makes me think of a Tiger/Leo (Lion)... with it's lovely golden coloring!
Tiger's Eye is one that helps give you a boost of confidence!! It will also help keep you in balance! Self Worth will defiantly be at the fore front when working with Tiger's Eye! It offers you protection as well as allows you to grow on your path with courage and boosts your own personal power!!
Pyrite: Also known as "fools gold"... you can be one with the Sun with this sparkly Crystal!! Lots of encouraging energy is coming your way with Pyrite!! Bringing you prosperity on your journey as well as protection, that lovely Crystal will bring you will power, positive energy and good luck! There is no way you can't be happy when working with Pyrite!
Season Of The Moon...
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 renewal as the new year begins, it’s a time for starting over, washing away the past, and enjoying fresh beginnings.
The reason why you will be hearing this Moon referred to as a "Blood Moon" is due to the Total Lunar Eclipse!
A Lunar Eclipse happens when the Moon passes into the Earth's shadows, which causes our reguarlly bright Moon to turn dark and also has a hew of red. Thus the giving of the name "Blood Moon."
The Moon on 1/20 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.
Total Lunar Eclipse ...
We are in for a treat tonight as the 1st Lunar Eclipse in 2019 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.
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!
On our last New Moon (January 5th, 2019) we had a Partial Solar Eclipse, and here is it's second half happening today!!
When To See It...
The Eclipse will begin at 6:35 pm PST on Jan. 20th, 2019 and will end at 11:50 PM PST.

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! As always, if your feeling lots of things bubbling up that make you have feelings of sadness, stress, anxiety...than it's the purrfect time for a Crystal Chakra Balancing!
