This full blood moon in Libra eclipse is no joke. Keep your wits about while taking notice of what gets your goat.
This past new moon was all about hitting reset and starting new. Now, the blood moon is about taking out the trash and letting go of the hard things.
I liken it to sorting through the stuff in bins under the bed. You know the plastic container you've moved around from storage to under the bed, to hallway closet, to work studio for about the last five years. Maybe it is filled with art projects, vintage bags in need of repair, shoes that did not fit then and will not fit now, stuff so awesome you forgot to give it to that special fried whom would love it, old photos of past loves, your kid's stuff, stuff from when you were a kid, books you want to read but haven't, broken jewelry, tchotchkes that never found their way back on display, macrame projects that were never completed . . . (Yep, it is time to get rid of that bin!)
The moon eclipse energy insists we enter into our deep-seated emotional containers and begin to make peace with the failure from past projects, vintage friendships that hurt more than they heal, partnership and relationships that never fit, emotional baggage accidentally (or intentionally) deposited by the people that love you, people you want to "read" but probably should just avoid, broken hearts and well, the real reason why you never finished that macrame project.
You'll know what needs your attention and what needs to go because you will hear it. It will sounds like a broken record. (Hence the video above.) As the moon begins to wane, you will become acutely aware of repetitive conversation that no longer serve. You will want to change your tune.
Besides, aren't you tired of hearing "that" story? So stop telling, living and repeating it as if it were your favorite song. Hitting reset was awesome but keeping the momentum means addressing the things that trip, skip and mess us up. It is not necessarily easy but it will be so apparent during this time that it will be impossible to avoid. Look closely at the constant source of irritation in your life. Is there a different way to exist with this issue? Better yet, is it possible to just let it go?
The thing I love about this type of energy is that whenever I begin to project it onto one person or situation, I stop and ask myself but what does this say about me. What am I telling the world when I maintain relationships, behaviors and patterns that are not healthy? It requires seeing the issues in our life as reflections of ourselves.
It comes up in tarot readings all the time. The issue may relate to a person at work, a partner, a family member but when an issue is persistent and a constant in one's life then the cards will recommend a deeper inquiry to the source. Generally, the beginning of one's issues start within. But, this, I say with so much love, is wonderful because it is easier to repair and alter oneself than to wait for change and evolution from another.
The warning for this eclipse is very clear: Even if the source of the problem is outside of oneself, if it continues, and no effort is made to move away or change it by the end of this eclipse cycle, then the real problem is you.
Just be mindful of your tone and how you choose to close certain chapters in your life. Disengage slowly and be silent or take out your sword and burn down the house. Basically, have the foresight to know if you need to alter a relationship or crush it to dust. The Libra moon indicates that many of these endings will be related to personal relationships - the ones that really matter.
While everybody loves a grand entrance, a dramatic exit requires thought and an awareness of grace. Choose your words and actions carefully. Be vigilant in your resolve to no longer repeat the patterns that result in pain.
This wave of eclipse is a choreographed dance toward excellence and we are all trying to learn the steps. Just keep in mind, that me, you and everyone you know is trying to learn the steps. We are all trying to pass go or evolve past something. You are not the only one on the dance floor. And when it comes to listening to complaints, keep it cute and stay positive with your response.
The energy of this moon is no joke. But if you heed it's energy, you will have you laughing again in no time.
