Eclipse Season 2021

Super Blood Moon

What does this Eclipse Season mean for YOU?

We have two eclipse seasons each year, one in Spring and one in Autumn. 2021’s season begins May 26th with a powerful Luna eclipse in Sagittarius. Mark your calendars, the effects will last until June 10th. The moon will look huge in the sky as it is a super blood moon, and the eclipse will give it a reddish hue, hence the ‘blood moon’ name.

What does this mean energetically?

Blood moons are said to be the bringers of change, transformation, and sudden shifts. You may find that you release something in your life, it may be something that you were not planning for.

“The secret of change
is to focus all of your energy,
not on fighting the old,
but on building the new.”

This may well represent a challenging period, if so, find the time to meditate and spend time consciously acknowledging what this change might actually mean long-term. What feels like a period of stress and anxiety may well make way for a better future.

What does Sagittarius have to do with this?

I know that we are actually in Gemini in terms of the astrology for the year, however, this full moon eclipse falls in the sign of Sagittarius. The energy of Sagittarius is that of expansion and the search for truth — universal truth. Travel, philosophy, and education are all associated with Sagittarius, it demands freedom, growth, and movement.

What do you want to focus on? Where do you want the expansion to come from? Think of the Sagittarian centaur, firing his arrow, what direction do you want that arrow to go in?

Remember though, that we may not have control over where that arrow finally comes to rest.

There is an aspect at play here too, which can add another dimension!

“The May 2021 full moon is square Jupiter which can cause a test of faith due to greed, excess and immorality. Mercury and Venus square Neptune adds confusion, deception, and vulnerability. Finally, lunar eclipse May 2021 joins some nasty stars between the Claws of the Scorpion that encourage deceit, crime, and disease. So it is more important than ever to protect yourself and the most vulnerable people you care about.”

So how can we prepare ourselves for this turbulent energy?

Practice compassion, stay in your heart, and aim to generate genuine loving energy to yourself and your fellow humans.

Our human compassion binds us the one to the other — not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learned how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future.”

Nelson Mandela

How the heck do we achieve this in the face of challenges?

Here are some simple ideas and techniques that you can use.

· Remember that change is inevitable, and that change can represent a transformation in the long term.

· Practise gratitude daily. Make a list of what is good in your life and find something to be grateful for each and every day.

· Use a simple breathing technique whenever you feel overwhelmed. Sit comfortably and observe your breath. Allow it to slow down and become deeper. Close your eyes if you are comfortable doing so. Breathe in for the count of 4 then breathe out for the count of 6, now slow it down further if this is comfortable for you.

· I would suggest 3 useful crystals for this period: Bloodstone helps us in turbulent times to see the whole picture and the possibility of transformation when the turbulence passes. Black tourmaline is a stone of protection, but also allows you to look at your shadow side to work on a deep level to shed something that no longer serves to clear a path to something new. Finally keep Rose Quartz to hand for unconditional love of self and others.

· Find solace in nature, go out for a walk and fill yourself up with fresh air. If you are in a city, find a park. Fully immerse yourself in the experience. Notice the flowers, the stunning green of Spring. Observe the busyness of nature, birds feeding their young, bees collecting pollen, the noise of nature is incredible at this time of year.

· Struggling with sleep? Practice the ‘body sensing meditation’ as you prepare for sleep. Lie on your back with your hands comfortably by your side. Start by taking your attention to your feet. Stretch them then relax them. Breath evenly and deeply. Now move up the body to your knees, bringing your awareness there. Breath, then continue the journey, slowly, to your thighs, hips, pelvis, torso, ribs, chest, heart, collarbone, elbows, hands, fingers, neck, head, eyes, jaw. You may fall asleep in the process. Result!

· Finally, remember to stay hydrated, drink plenty of water, practice self-care with lots of healthy foods.
