May 15-16 brings a Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Scorpio. A Blood Moon Eclipse is rare and potent. It signifies an ending, a closure point to a chapter not just in our lives, but on our soul journey too.
Blood Moon Eclipses get their name from the reddish hue the Moon takes on when a Total Lunar Eclipse occurs. A Total Lunar Eclopse or Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse always falls on a Full Moon and is the most potent kind we can experience. They carry the weight of a thousand Full Moons!
If you have felt Full Moon energy before, you can imagine how strong a Blood Moon Eclipse can be. Their energy is something we can feel on a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual level, and the effects can last for up to a month.
All Eclipses activate our soul contract, bringing forward events that are necessary for the growth and evolution of our soul. Even though Eclipses can bring challenges our way, they always put us where we need to be.
Under the May 2022, Blood Moon Eclipse, we are being guided to close the door on a chapter in our lives. This Eclipse represents endings, closure, and completion. Something needs to end, and this Eclipse is going to be the trigger.
As this Eclipse falls in the transformative sign of Scorpio, we may also find ourselves retreating within to shed layers and move into a deeper and more authentic state of being.
Scorpio is represented by the scorpion for its ability to transform itself and shed its skin. But Scorpio energy is also connected to the Phoenix too. The Phoenix has the ability, the strength, and the power to birth itself from ashes. From the ashes it rises into its true and highest form.
Each of us has the power to do this for ourselves. While the Blood Moon Eclipse may bring ashes, it also brings the promise that we too can rise just like Phoenix and rebirth ourselves into the fullest of our potential.
Cycles of death and rebirth are a part of life, and they can really be highlighted under a Blood Moon Eclipse. Each of us has our own journey to travel, but as this Eclipse dawns, perhaps think about the cycles of death and rebirth in your own life, and how they may be activated for you right now.
If the Eclipse does bring a closing to anything in your life, keep in your heart that there is the opportunity to rebirth yourself from the ashes in time. Keep in your heart that although challenging, Eclipses always put us where we need to be for the highest evolution of our soul.
As we feel the Eclipse energy building, we may find ourselves needing to retreat or conserve our energy. In this quiet space, we may find ourselves experiencing awakenings, ah-ha moments, and deeper realizations about our path, our relationships, and the situations we find ourselves in.
As this Eclipse carries the theme of endings, we may find ourselves needing to let go of something or realizing that our current path needs to change in order to better serve us.
Eclipses are a highly sensitive, psychic time, so pay attention to any nagging feelings or intuitions. As Mercury will also be in retrograde under this Eclipse, we may find ourselves feeling mentally foggy or even a little confused about how to proceed in our external world. If this arises, take it as a call to go within, be patient, and get still with your inner voice.
Our inner voice always knows the way, and even though this Eclipse may require us to be a little patient in what unfolds, we can trust that we will have all the answers we need in time.
Under this Blood Moon Eclipse, Venus and Chiron will also be in alignment. This planetary combination can send purifying, healing vibrations our way, helping us to find closure on wounds that have ailed us. Some wounds can never be healed, but under this Eclipse there are soothing energies that can support us in finding our balance and strength.
As Blood Moon Eclipses are a good time for endings, we can consciously use this energy to set an intention to bring an ending to any painful wounds, stories, or situations that we may find ourselves in.
Eclipses are always guiding us to our next step, so after setting an intention, the next best thing we can do is surrender and trust where the energies call us to go.
Mars and Neptune are also in alignment under this Eclipse, guiding us to focus on our spiritual connection. Mars is a fearless, warrior-driven energy, whereas Neptune is all about a higher love and connection.
This combination of energy under the Blood Moon Eclipse guides us to focus on our spiritual wellbeing and to remember that we are souls here for a human experience.
Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the humanness of it all, but when we go within, we can remember that all is temporary, that we are all connected, and each one of us has a role to play in the greater unfolding of life.
There will be one more Blood Moon Eclipse in 2022 on November 8th. These two Eclipses will work together. It is very likely that the November Eclipse will carry similar themes to whatever is unfolding for you under the May Eclipse. Stay tuned for more!
