A Lunar Eclipse however, refers to attitudes, perceptions, and habitual patterns that we must release for the sake of advancing to the next effective level of our individual or personal growth.
Full Moons = ‘Releasing’
As is true of all Full Moons, they are ironically about releasing as opposed to seeding. Yet, they are also about harvesting. In fact, what they release includes seeds, or at least it is symbolic of the flower or fruit which invariable hosts seeds within it, yet which may require a bit more time to develop, which is symbolically associated with the Last Quarter Moon a week after the Full Moon and the week following it.
As well, the Full Moon is like the beautiful flower in full bloom or the ‘fruit’ or vegetable that has reached its maturity and is ready to be harvested.
So, don’t try to plant seeds of intention at this time of the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, so much as reap the harvest and determine what must go or be recycled.
The Lunar Eclipse is often referred to as a ‘red moon’, and dramatically as a ‘blood moon’. But it is technically more accurate to describe it as an orange ochre colour, and should not be regarded with negative connotation. Some people can experience ANY Eclipse in a jolting way. But sometimes it can be just the breakthrough push or activation some have been praying for.
The exact degrees of this Lunar Eclipse, therefore, and how it is configured by Hemisphere, Quadrant, and House and the aspects it makes to planets and angles in YOUR own Birth Chart are the fine print regarding the particular impact implied, or more accurately worded, destined.
So, this Halloween weekend will prove extra exciting with the Full Moon energy.
Venus in Virgo is a bit dry regarding the fun and frolic, yet the strong emphasis on Scorpio will lend it the depth and mystery that is symbolic of this annual focus. So, it might prove more interesting to focus on the sacredness of this dark time which, in its deeper reaches, celebrates that rebirth of some kind always follows death.
