The full Moon in Leo, of 31st January 2018 was rare event in the Lunar calendar.
It was a full Lunar Eclipse, which we were be able to see here in Australia just after midnight on January 31st
just after midnight in the eastern states.
The so-called ‘Blood Moon’ effect is because the Earth was exactly in between the Sun and the Moon, and it cast a red shadow on the moon.
It was a Super Moon, which means the Moon will be at its closest to the earth in its elliptical orbit,
so the Moon will be bigger than usual. (perigee)
It was a so-called ‘Blue Moon', which means it was the second full moon in January 2018. (We can take the
daylight savings factor out for Australia, then it fell within January.)
I have drawn-up a chart for the exact time the eclipse happened for Australian Eastern Standard time.
The immediate thing one sees when looking at this chart is that it is in a 'bucket formation', which usually indicates precise and focused energy. The 'handle' consists of the Moon conjunct the North Node, and
my interpretation of this, is the huge shift happening to the feminine side of our collective psyche, which is well in progress now, and we’ve already started to feel this with the #metoo movement: an unraveling of a place where many women have felt disempowered, oppressed, exploited and humiliated.
A great healing is happening as all the suppressed and denied energies come to the surface clearing the way for an evolutionary shift, especially since the North and South nodes are so much part of this full moon, the Moon's nodes are so much to do with the soul's memory of all experiences gleaned over a life-time, or many life-times.
Much growth can happen now, as we cut away the cover-ups which prevented us from telling our truth’s.
This is all being helped along mightily by Pluto in Capricorn, amongst other things, is the breaking down of protocols, the status quo and the established patriarchal structures human beings have lived under for thousands of years.
The Sun is conjunct Venus along with the South Node, which can bring much healing in relationships
where things may have been swept under-the-rug by bringing those sometimes challenging things to light with love and compassion purging the relationship of all its old stories.
