The lunar situation is getting a bit complex, so let’s summarize.
A Blood Moon is when a complete lunar eclipse makes the moon appear red.
A Blue Moon is when an additional full moon occurs as well as the 12 usual full moons we have every year. As this only happens occasionally (like a Leap Year, and for the same kind of reasons), we say “Once in a blue moon” to suggest something only happens rarely.
A full Super Moon is when a full moon occurs at the time the planet is at the closest possible distance to the Earth, making the moon larger than usual to see.
These 3 elements are coinciding today, so do remember to glance out of the window or up from your phone at some point to take a look.
Oh, and Black Moth Super Rainbow are one of the best bands ever, but that’s another story for another time.
So, let’s break it down. Read on to find out what this very unusual lunar event bodes for your star sign …
What does the Super Blue Blood Moon mean for YOU?
Aries (March 21–April 19): Finally, the end is in sight for that project you’ve been working on. People will appreciate your hard work. Take especial care of your health at the moment as you are liable to injury. Wear or carry purple or white crystals for protection.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) : Both love and money are free-flowing for you at the moment. Take care not to over-do it socially, as your energy levels are liable to run low and allow your mood to drop. Wearing gold will boost your good luck.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): You should be taking advantage of every invitation which comes your way, as this is a great time for new beginnings and learning new things. Birds and feathers are bad luck for you now, so avoid them for the next week.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): This is a time for you to stay close to home, where happiness lies for you at this time. Love, safety and warmth are there for you. This is an inauspicious time for you to travel abroad. Wear the colour green for luck.
Leo (July 23-August 22): Passion is flowering with somebody close to you, whether it’s someone you are already in a relationship with or a close friend or colleague. You should not hold back feelings at this time. Cats are especially lucky for you this week.
Virgo (August 23-September 22): This is your time for pulling yourself together and getting your house in order. If you play your cards right and put your impulses aside for now, you will have one of your most successful years ever. The colour blue is lucky for you.
Libra (September 23-October 22): A troubled emotional start to the year. You may have some hard decisions to make, but spend as much time around nature and animals as you can, and you will draw strength to rise to new heights in both your professional and personal life. If you see an unusually shaped or coloured pebble on the ground, pick it up and carry it with you, as it will help bring clarity.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Love and passion are surrounding you right now, with many people seeing you through new eyes. A good time to be involved with group activities. Look for the humour in everything, and it is lucky for you to buy gifts for others.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): A time of positive change for you – some troubles which have been niggling away at you will dissolve, and a health issue will resolve itself. A good time to start a new project or scheme. Wear white for luck.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): A good time for you to think of others and lend sympathy and help. If you can support others now, you will be paid back later this year when you will face a difficult time in your personal life. If a stranger asks for a favour, try to oblige them. They may turn out to be someone of great significance to you. This will be an ordeal for you, but lead to a brighter future in the end. Protective amulets for you are anything in the shape of a fish.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18): Beware dark shadows and dark water, as these are bad luck for you at the moment. Be careful not to injure yourself. You have a secret admirer who is getting very close to telling you how they feel. Red flowers are a protection for you at this time.
Pisces (February 19-March 20): You are at your best at this time – attuned to other people and communication channels wide open, leading to a big improvement in your working life soon. The scent of lavender and purple flowers are good for keeping you safe from hostile or jealous influences.
As is usual for any major lunar event, some people are predicting that this will be the one which tips us over the edge into the end of the world as we know it. Only one way to find out if that is true, and that’s to play the waiting game.
While you wait, why not indulge yourself with a cocktail?
Under the Cherry Super Blue Blood Moon
1/2 shot silver tequila
1 shot Cocchi Americano
1/2 shot Parfait Amour
1 dash violet syrup
Combine in a chilled shaker and garnish with a blood red cherry.
The key thing for making this drink is that you allow the ingredients to infuse overnight in the light of the moon before combining them.
If you don’t have enough advance notice for that, at least drink it under the rays of the moon and raise it in a toast to the vast and silvery planet.
If you can get your hands on some spells for spiritual cleansing and removal of evil influences, this would be a good time to use them. My friend Jane brought me back from Brazil some banho extrato de ervas naturais and forcas das correntes espirituais, as I’ve been recently troubled.
These potions can be used conveniently in the bathtub to rinse away bad luck.
The full Super Moon heralds a time of change for everyone. Here’s to changes for the better, and new beginnings.
