2019 Leo Super Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse

4.16 pm AEDT Sydney, NSW, Australia
Here in the North Country the day before the Full Moon there had been a snow storm that ushered in bitterly cold Arctic air. Even though Snowy Owl and Shooting Star had very warm parkas to wear it was much too cold to go to the Star Temple for the Full Moon celebration. Whenever they could not go to that Sacred Space they would go to the Shaman’s Cave. The Wise One always welcomed them and shared the message from Sister Moon.
As the sisters entered the Cave the warmth from the fire in the center surrounded them. They welcomed the heat as the cold outside had been bone chilling. The flames from the fire rose high and cast reddish orange dancing shadows on the cave walls. As the Shaman greeted them he began to speak. “Sister Moon has asked me to share her message with you. This Full Moon is a time of completion but also new beginnings. You are being asked to embrace the courage to be your Authentic Self with integrity and compassion for all. This Full Moon offers you Loving Kindness from Creator and Great Mystery for embracing your true self so that you shine your special light out into the world. That special light is compassion and Loving Kindness for all. When you strengthen your connection to Cosmic Consciousness you become Wayshowers for all who are ready to awaken to who they really are. Spiritual Beings having a human experience. Sister Moon has asked me to tell you that is the path for the next six Moon cycles. And now as you leave the Cave and go outside look up into the dark sky. You will see Sister Moon shinning deep red in the indigo night.”
When Snowy Owl and Shooting Star emerged from the Shaman’s Cave and looked up there was Sister Moon her full face glowing reddish orange. They knew she would always guide them on this journey of self-discovery and Cosmic Connection.
The Super Full Moon (closer to Earth) is at 00 degrees 51 Leo and the Sun is at 00 degrees 51 Aquarius. Because it is at 00 degrees it initiates new beginnings. The theme is Courage, Integrity, and the Compassion Heart. Leo is personal love and Aquarius is Universal Love. It is the opportunity for us to walk the path of Loving Kindness for all. Because it is a Total Eclipse it also completes the cycle of the last six months (July/Aug 2018). The theme has been releasing the old structures that no longer work, transformation and rebuilding, and change in direction. It has been about becoming heart centered and releasing the ego personality’s need for control. Some of us have done well on that path. Others not so much or not at all.
The theme for this Full Moon Eclipse is “A coming together, fulfillment of wishes, breakthrough and achievement”. It adds to the energy of the Jan 05 New Moon Eclipse “group involvement with a healing and humanitarian focus, and support for your beliefs”. (Themes by Bernadette Brady). The timing of the Eclipse for EST is beginning Jan 20 at 10.34 pm when the Moon enters Earth’s Umbra (shadow) totality is 11.41 pm to Jan 21 at 12.43 am. Greatest Eclipse is at 12.12 am Jan 21 and the exact Full Moon is at 12.16 am. The Moon leaves Earth’s shadow Jan 21 at 1.51 am. Even though it will be -25 C where I live I hope to see the Eclipse if the Cloud People co-operate. If the Eclipse is not visible wherever you are open your 3rd eye (Aquarius) and receive the Heart Blessings from the Leo Moon.
Our Animal Totem guide for the Moon in Leo (the Earth is also in Leo) is Salmon, courage, perseverance, and determination to create the new. For the Sun in Aquarius it is Otter, companionship and joyful sharing (they are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere). For all of us the Clan Mother for the Moon and Earth is She Who Heals. She teaches us to serve others with an open heart using our healing abilities. She guides us to serve the truth. For the Sun in Aquarius our guide is Wisdom Keeper. She is the Clan Mother of friendship, planetary unity, and Mutual Understanding. She teaches us to honor the truth. You can find more of their Medicine stories in The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams.
This is a North Node Eclipse (new spiritual directions). The North Node is at 26 degrees Cancer (mastery through Change) and the South Node is at 26 degrees Capricorn (releasing the limiting and restrictive past) travelling with Mercury at 25 degrees Capricorn (out thoughts and perceptions). Uranus at 28 degrees Aries squares (finding new ways of doing things) Mercury, the Nodes, and the Full Moon. Uranus in Aries is breaking through to your Authentic Self which is your Soul Essence Self. Pay attention to what you need to change in your life. At the Pisces New Moon of March 06/07 (healing and completion) the planet called The Awakener (Uranus) will re-enter 00 degrees Taurus (what is of true value and importance) and square (motivation for change) this Eclipse’s degrees. Be heart centered and open to whatever gifts are coming your way at that timing. Uranus was visiting Taurus May to Nov 2018 so whatever issues you were dealing with around breaking free will come up again for breakthrough at this New Moon.
There is much more to say but I would be here until tomorrow. But one important message to share are the blessings from Venus at 14 degrees Sagittarius (belief in self) travelling with Jupiter at 15 degrees Sagittarius (expansion of your spiritual vision). They are square (finding new ways of doing things) Neptune at 14 degrees Pisces (illusion or illumination). Jupiter (Cosmic Consciousness) and Neptune (Mystical Union) began their square (revision and realignment) on Jan 13 and it will be repeated June 16 and Sept 21 so pay attention to what needs to be revisioned at this Full Moon. Mars at 13 degrees Aries (spiritual action) is trine (removal of obstacles) Venus and Jupiter. And remember when you shine your special light into the world it illuminates the path to freedom for others still in the dark.
