The first of 4 lunar eclipses’ of 2014 will take place during the night between April 14 -15 beginning at 2:00 AM EDT. This full moon is called the Blood Moon due to the red hue during its total eclipse. A lunar eclipse is a good time to work on your spiritual connection. Energy is heightened and activities such as meditation, chanting, wish crafting and blessings can be very effective.
The Moon and its energy have fuelled many myths and stories. The phase of the Moon which is the part that we are able to see at night is cyclical and is dependent on its position from the sun and the earth. It is illuminated by the light of the sun, while the part facing away from the sun is in darkness. The very nature of what we see and are not able to see is part of the reason that the moon often represents situations that might be illusive and unclear.
The full moon is its most powerful phase and many people are affected by it’s energy. Some believe it intensifies emotions and if you have ever worked in customer service, or health care there is a clear understanding that it can be a tough day in the trenches dealing with increased conflict and in some cases accidents. I know I’ve worked in the area of customer service and have to agree there is definitely a pattern that seems to repeat it itself during these times.
Having said that I have always had a close connection to the moon. I feel drawn to it in the night sky. It is has always filled my spirit with a sense of ease and a feeling of being part of something so much bigger than our day to day lives. For me the moon is very much a connection to spirit, to my intuition, and my wish for peace and hope for all. No matter where in the world we are, the moon is a beacon that adds light to darkness.
It is only a few hours to when the eclipse is supposed to begin and unfortunately the sky is a cloudy one at the moment. It is likely I won’t be able to see the eclipse, however you don’t need to see it, to feel it’s energy and power.
Be mindful of your thoughts, your words and your actions. Be kind to yourself and others and be part of the energy that brings love, hope and peace to this world of ours. Brightest Blessings
