When Snowy Owl and Shooting Star sensed that a Moon ceremony was very special they went to visit the Shaman’s Cave to receive his guidance. He always knew what was occurring in the universal dance. This time was no different. He told them this night Sister Moon would appear crimson orange when she was at her Fullness but they would not be able to see that because at their location Luna would have already set in the west. The sisters felt a little disappointed at that news but they also knew Little Owl might be waiting for them at the Star Temple to take them on a journey so they could visually see the Red Moon. Little Owl was Snowy Owl’s sacred Totem and always guided them whenever they journeyed to faraway places.
And sure enough when they reached the Star Temple the Winged One was waiting for them. Sister Moon was already high in the sky and her silver face looked bigger and brighter than usual. Luna spoke “The Shaman is right. This is a very special lunation. Go now, put on your feather capes, and follow Little Owl into the night”. Little Owl led the sisters westward to the other side of Turtle Island. As they travelled Luna was like a guiding beacon of light. When they came closer to their destination the left edge of Sister Moon was already tinged with a red glow. When the trio landed on the coast next to the great ocean Luna was fully immersed in that crimson orange glow. The sisters had arrived at the sacred place where their friends did their Moon Ceremonies. Red Thunderbird and Runs With The Salmon were there to welcome them.
The foursome watched as Sister Moon descended and her Full Red face was reflected on the calm ocean waters. It was like she was reaching out to them all. Finally she spoke “I wanted all of you to be together for this Moon message. This is a Moon that asks you to follow the path of the Compassionate Heart. In the faraway time there has been a forgetting that all is sacred in the eyes of Creator and Great Mystery. This Full Moon is to remind the two leggeds to release the need for power over others and the Earth Mothers Kingdoms and truly understand all is interconnected. When we say do no harm it means to honour and respect all life. This Full Moon connects you to all the Cosmic Beings that are guiding you to share your special healing gifts to make the world unified through Love for All. Each human now, and in the faraway time, must awaken and step onto the Heart Path. Time is running out.”
Sister Moon was still in her red glow as she slid below the ocean horizon. Her message was clear. The time for change was now.
This Full Moon has attracted a lot of attention. It is a Total Lunar Eclipse when Luna is fully engulfed in Earth’s shadow and turns orangey red, a Super Moon when she is closer to Earth than usual and pulls our emotional strings, and for most of the World (except eastern Australia, New Zealand and some Pacific Islands) is the second Full Moon in the month of January known as a Blue Moon of Transformation. But even those locations can still work with the Full Moon as a time of healing and transformation. The powerful message from our story is “the time for change is now.”
The dwarf planet Ceres (nurturing love and acceptance) the Earth (our physical and spiritual home) and the Moon (our intuitive guidance) are all at 11 degrees Leo (being heart centered). They are travelling with the North Node at 14 degrees Leo (new directions and the Heart Path). They are ruled by the Sun at 11 degrees Aquarius (cosmic consciousness). The Sun is travelling with the South Node at 14 degrees Aquarius and Venus at 16 degrees Aquarius (letting the past go with Love). The Aquarius planets are ruled by Uranus at 24 degrees Aries (breaking free from the past and breaking through to the new). All those connections are fairly easy. We do have a challenging activation though. Venus at 16 degrees Aquarius (courage to be yourself) is Square (motivation for change) Jupiter at 21 degrees Scorpio (hanging on to the past). But Jupiter is trine (removal of obstacles) Chiron at 25 degrees Pisces (healing, forgiveness, and release). And Mercury (our thoughts and perceptions) is at 29 degrees Capricorn (limitations) squared by Uranus (breakthrough). At 8.39 am EST (12 minutes after the exact Full Moon) Mercury enters Aquarius (new innovative ways of thinking). This really is a Moon of transformation.
Our Animal Totem guide for the Moon and the other Leo energies is Salmon, courage and determination to reach our goal of creating the new. For the Sun and the other energies in Aquarius our guide is Otter, companionship and joyful sharing. They are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere (Otter for Leo and Salmon for Aquarius) but available to us all at this Full Moon. The Clan Mother for the Leo Moon is She Who heals, the keeper of the healing arts and the Mother of intuition. For the Aquarius Sun it is Wisdom Keeper, the guardian of friendship, planetary unity, and Mutual Understanding. They teach us how to honour and serve the truth. This Full Moon is a friendship Moon that includes all. The Clan Mother for the Blue Moon is Becomes Her Vision. She is the guardian of transformation and teaches us how to become our vision. She teaches us to Be the Truth. (The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams).
This Full Moon Eclipse completes the lessons we have been working on since the Aug 21, 2017 Solar Eclipse in Leo. The theme has been courage of your convictions and discovering your inner strength and personal power. That has certainly been true for women in the last few months. Now we are embracing the courage to be our authentic self and strengthening our connection to those Cosmic Beings our story talked about. The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on Feb 15 will continue this theme. That Eclipse influences us until July 2018.
The Ray this Full Moon activates is 5th Ray, knowledge and healing. As we heal we are Wayshowers for others. Our Archangel guides are Raphael, the shinning one who heals, and Mary, feminine strength and the power of Love. The Moon in Leo also is a 1st Ray sign, Divine Will and Power. Archangel Michael, protector and spiritual destiny guide, and Faith, trust and belief in your Divine Self, are our guides.
The heart path is the Path of Loving Kindness. Here is a mantra from Jack Kornfield in “A Path with Heart”. It is a wonderful blessing.
May I be filled with loving-kindness.
May I be well.
May I be peaceful and at ease.
May I be happy.
Full Moon Blessings,
