The Astrology of the Blood Moon Eclipse September 2015

astrology of the blood moons

Does the Blood Moon Eclipse on the 28th signify the end of the world?

No, but perhaps it does signify the end of the world as we know it.

There has been a great unravelling in recent months or even years, that is preparing us all to give birth to something new.

On the 28th we not only have a Harvest Moon, Super Moon and a Blood Moon but also an Eclipse that is part of a series of four that began back in 2014.

To make sense of all of this:

Harvest Moon: the full moon that is closest to the Spring/Autumnal equinox and is usually a powerful time of change and new beginnings.

Super Moon: when the moon is closer the earth due to it’s rotation and orbit. This is usually a time where the energetic effects of the moon and emotions run high and are felt stronger.

Blood Moon: when the earth casts a shadow on the moon causing the suns light to hit the moon and make it appear red. The term is also used to describe four total Lunar Eclipses.

Throughout history every four or tetrad of Blood Moon Eclipses have often signified powerful changes, ending and beginnings. These Moon series have also been referred to in many religious and spiritual text due to their significance.

Even though Lunar Eclipses are not uncommon, having a series of four Blood Moons is very rare and something that has not been repeated since 1967.

In order to really understand the significance of this Blood Moon Eclipse personally, it is necessary to go back in time and piece together what was happening at the very first Blood Moon Eclipse.

Blood Moon Eclipse #1

On April 14-15, 2014 we started the first of the Blood Moon Eclipses in the sign of Libra. This eclipse was all about relationships and breaking patterns. It was also about helping restore balance and equilibrium to relationships and coming into a deeper understanding of unconditional love and harmony. You can read more here.

Blood Moon Eclipse #2

On October 7-8, 2014 we had the second Eclipse in the sign of Aries. This was all about new beginnings, taking action and standing up for  yourself. This Eclipse would have helped many to find their path and open up to a new way of being. You can read more here.

Blood Moon Eclipse #3

On April 4,  2015 we had the third eclipse in the sign of Libra. Again themes surrounding relationships, self-love and partnerships were bought to our attention and old beliefs and patterns around love were shed. You can read more here.

Blood Moon Eclipse #4

This is the final of the Eclipses and will fall in Aries on September 27-28, 2015.

Looking back through time there may have been significant events brewing around these dates that will now need to come to a close or resolution.

You may have also been feeling strong shifts in recent months that have perhaps lined up clues for you as to what may be in store on this very significant date.

Energetically, this final of the Blood Moon Eclipses is going to open a new doorway that is going to give rise to a new way of being- a new Earth that is higher in consciousness and more evolved.

In order to reach this stage, the old, the outdated and parts of the ego need to be shed, released and let go of.

Some will fight this urge and others will embrace it, giving rise to the disparity and the push/pull that may be felt on Earth.

It is up to us all how we want this rise in consciousness to change our world. Either we can flow with the changes or fight them, regardless however, they are happening.

During this time there is also a heightened sensitivity and perhaps even a greater understanding of the spirit world and metaphysics.

Think of this coming Eclipse as a gateway into a new world where we will all have a deeper understanding of humanity, our purpose and what life is all about.

Many believe that our solar system as we know it is moving into a new area of space and time and that through this shift we will all be experiencing and opening to new energies and realities.

This shift is extremely powerful and will definitely give rise to a new way of being and thinking.

You have probably already started to feel and see these changes in your own life, perhaps you have even begin to change your behaviours or attitudes to things. Perhaps you are now also realising that your way of being is no longer serving you.

The message for everyone is to dive head first into these changes. To be proud and assertive over what you want and to lose all attachments to the ego mind and body.

Go within to your soul and nurture the tiny flame within, allow it to guide you, allow it to show you the way.

Part of this huge shift in consciousness is also about stepping back and allowing life to live you instead of the other way around.

Part of this shift is about opening your heart to the Universe and feeling the deeper connections that surround us all.

Part of these shifts are really about YOU and aligning yourself on your highest path for your highest destiny.

There is absolutely nothing to fear, there is absolutely nothing to worry about, in fact in order to embrace these new energies here are some suggestions:

Open your heart

This Eclipse is really about learning how to open your heart and to move into a place where you can be free to receive and give love. Opening your heart to this energy is also going to allow you to really receive the new vibrations, frequencies and downloads that are going to be on offer. All of us are going to come into more intuitive and psychic knowing about our lives as long as our heart is open and free.


With all the energy circling, it is now very important for us all to protect our mind and body from any fear based thoughts that surface. This includes adding to the fear about the events that are expected to happen. Be open minded and welcome in the changes while still protecting your own energy from the fears, chaos and attitudes of those around you.


The energies in recent weeks have been heavy so definitely take the time to assess your situation and honour where you are at. If you are feeling stuck, good! That is exactly where you need to be, so embrace it and allow yourself to sit and gently ride the waves. Don’t force anything, for now is definitely the time to surrender.


If there is something that has been nagging at you, something that you have been feeling it is time to let go of, now is definitely the time to get real with yourself and be truthful about what you really want to carry with you into this new gateway. This is also a time for lightworkers, empaths and earth angels to step into their gifts.

This final of four Blood Moons is really an amazing opportunity for everyone to start new. Now is really the time to shed the old in order for the new to be embraced.

On this upcoming Eclipse the final shedding will occur and as the year draws to a close, you will be given more insights on how to proceed on your new chapter.

    Why does it say sun sign libra when it is in april?

    • Mishka Aumakua

      The moon is always in the sign opposite the sun.

      • Ben

        The moon moves through all 12 signs in a month, where the sun takes a year. It certainly isn’t always opposite the sun. Maybe you meant the full moon?

  • Kevin

    Pretty sure I have a good idea about what all this is supposed to mean for my life. The last four years, especially the last two, have been pretty intense on me focusing on internal change. Thank you Again for your posts. 🙂

    • Jess Geez

      Me too!

  • Nathaniel Colbert

    I find it interesting that around mid April 2014, I quit drinking, after years of being a terrible alcoholic. I also found a book around that time that changed my perspectives on a lot of things. interesting…

    • Kat

      What was the book?

      • Mand

        Consider reading power of positive thinking by Norman Vincent Peale I sent that to my brother when he was in jail and he told me it helped him turn his life around. He is also an addict almost 5yrs clean. I also know a couple other people who have benefited from that book. I’d recommend it to anyone.

  • Jess Geez

    Early in 2014, I quit smoking weed (after about 15 years), let go of a toxic relationship I’d become addicted to, lost my dad, and started a new phase of self-discovery.

    • Chocgirl

      Condolences on your loss but well done!

    • Kevin

      That’s awesome Jess, keep it up! 🙂

  • frans

    Everything felt upside-down these last weeks.Now I know why.

    • Dina

      Same here! I thought I was going out of my mind…

      • Linda

        Yes. So true. These words have been such a comfort. I feel thinks have loosened up and righted a bit more now. I’m excited for what’s ahead.

  • Dina

    This explains so much about what has been going on in my life since April of last year. At each eclipse, I can pin-point significant changes that were taking place in my life. Especially, why I’ve been feeling the way I have over the last month… (as Frans said, everything has felt upside-down), such a relief to know that a new chapter is unfolding. THANKS!

  • Logan

    I’m only 16 but I have also have changed if my personality or upgraded myself and one weird thing is I recognize these changes after my birthday which is in April

  • Thank you for this article! I have cited it in my blog post.. also about the Supermoon/Blood Moon:

  • trowelqueen

    Are the signs for Aries and Libra mixed up in accordance with the timing you have cited? I always thought Aries was April and Libra was September.

    • Toe

      its not the month that is the determining factor here…Full Moon in Aries may happen only in the end of September and in the beginning of October, when the Sun moves in Libra, the zodiac sector opposite to Aries…Moon in Aries is a time, when lunar sky path is crossing the first sector of the zodiac – between ∠0°-30°, where is located the constellation of Aries. The SUN sign is Libra…what you are confusing this with as that sign is acssociated with this time of year

    • Ben

      simple answer is Sun is in Libra, Moon is in Aries

    This echoes this:
    Message from the Hopi Elders, 2001:


    “We have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour
    Now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour
    And there are things to be considered

    Where are you living?
    What are you doing?
    What are your relationships?
    Are you in the right relation?
    Where is your water?
    Know your garden.

    It is time to speak your truth.
    Create your community.
    Be good to each other.
    And do not look outside yourself for the leader.

    There is a river flowing now very fast.
    It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
    They will try to hold onto the shore.
    They will feel they are being torn apart and they will suffer greatly.
    Know the river has its destination.

    The elders say we must let go of the shore, and push off and into the river, keep our eyes open, and our head above the water.

    See who is in there with you and Celebrate.

    At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally.
    Least of all ourselves.
    For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

    The time of the lone wolf is over,
    Gather yourselves!

    Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.
    All that you do now must be done in a sacred manner
    And in celebration.”

    Wow. This makes the last year and a half make so much sense. April 2014 every thing changed in my life and I found myself starting all over. Instead of trying to get another job in the same industry, I decided to take a break from the norm to find myself and what path I really wanted to take next. I’ve experienced a slow but steady growth in learning how to love myself as well as learning how to meditate and opening up my self to guidance from our universe. Today’s meditation was the most enlightening experience I’ve ever had in my life and now I know why. A whole new me and a whole new life starts tonight!

  • elrond

    nothing about this article is true. Magic doesn’t exist. sorry.

    • Ben

      You are boring… sorry.

      • cherr


    • cherr

      Just because you don’t understand something doesn’t mean it’s magic

  • jaybreezy

    these past few months have brought me to what felt like the brink of whether or not I had the strength to really live this life. without putting anything together, tonight felt like one massive purge of all the negativity I’ve been carrying with me like feelings of hopelessness. I shared a beautiful night with my parents watching this eclipse and was able to breathe a bit again. if nothing else, I’ll forever cherish this memory and tonight.
