There is a total eclipse of the FULL MOON ON OCTOBER 8, 2014 .
BLOOD MOON. It is has such an ominous sounding name. You may wonder what it means for you! A blood Moon is just another name for a total lunar eclipse. Any astronomer would tell you lunar eclipses happen several times a year; some are total, others not, but by no means is a lunar eclipse a rare event.
This is the Northern Hemisphere’s Hunter’s Moon – the name for the full moon after the Harvest Moon. It’s also a Blood Moon, and this eclipse is the second in a series of four so-called Blood Moon eclipses. For North America and the Hawaiian Islands, the total lunar eclipse happens in the wee hours before sunrise on October 8. For New Zealand, Australia and eastern Asia, the total eclipse is seen after sunset on October 8. A partial lunar eclipse can be seen before sunrise, October 8, from much of South America, or after sunset, October 8, from western Asia. Follow the links below to learn more about the 2014 Hunter’s Moon and the October 8 total lunar eclipse.
WHAT MAKES THE FOUR LUNAR ECLIPSES IN 2014-2015 A BIT MORE SPECIAL
is that they are all total lunar eclipses, and all visible over North America. (If you like Moon watching and you live in North America, you’re in for a good show.)
SOLAR AND LUNAR ECLIPSES ARE SIGNS OF CHANGE.
You can expect accelerated changes in the areas of life related to the eclipse. For a lunar eclipse, this means changes in the realm of family, home, as well as your emotional needs and habits.
Where that change occurs in your life depends on the signs of the eclipses, and where the eclipses fall in your own birth chart.
The eclipses of 2014 and 2015 signify the path you blaze that’s uniquely yours; Libra represents how you form relationships and partnerships for your mutual advantage. Everyone can expect in these areas to come up somewhere in your own life over the next few years.
However, if you are an ARIES or a LIBRA (or have other planets in Aries or Libra), the next few years are a potent time in your life to break free of old patterns and create something new in your world, especially regarding relationships.
HOW CAN YOU MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR ECLIPSE SEASON?A few questions to ask:
- What makes you want to get out of bed in the morning? (If the answer is “nothing”, you have some brainstorming to do.)
- What makes you feel most yourself?
- How can you get more of that into your life?
- What nurtures you? How do you nurture yourself?
- What needs of yours are not being met?
Now you know what areas you might focus your Moon healing during October 8, 2014 (15° ARIES).
THE FLAMES OF PASSION ARE BURNING HOT IN OCTOBER.

Aries is ruled by Mars the warrior…Watch out for being too impulsive. Rash decisions may feel good in the moment. But, can come back to bite you later.
“This fiery combination can have you act out in anger and pain. Long term tolerations could come to a head now. It is wiser to step back and not react. You want to be proactive and not reactive.

…Oppositions are awareness’s that come to you though other people, situations or events. This can be surprising or shocking. There could be a rude awakening. There may be unexpected events or curve balls thrown your way. Truth can be inconvenient. However, it does set you free….”
“Personally, Uranus can show you things about other people that you were not considering. Relationships are your mirrors.”

“THERE IS A DISTINCTION BETWEEN AUTHENTIC POWER AND FORCE.
When we are truly powerful we do not have to manipulate, dominate and control anyone. Forcing your will onto other people is false power. Forcing your beliefs onto other people is fear.

The intense electric energies are coursing through your veins. Being balanced will be your test. You can ride the transformational wave of energy. Your growth matters. Don’t be attached. Go with the flow. ….
The Lunar Eclipse occurring October 8 brings in a fast-moving pace necessitating quick shifts in your emotional body in order to use the opportunities presented. Benefit will come when you choose the path of independence and overcoming the fear of new beginnings.
Being independent has a lot to do with having the courage of your convictions. This is a time for tuning into and trusting your instincts, and being willing to stand up for your beliefs, even if it creates conflict. By being willing to face the fear of not being liked or of being rejected for your ideas, you create change, and with change there is growth. When you take the risk of asserting your individuality, you strengthen the spark of vitality within you.
As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries holds the energy of new beginnings,
Be bold; Be courageous to do inner dance with our Blood(y) Moon!
