Supermoons are rare enough, but the rarer combination of a supermoon AND a total lunar eclipse is why this week's event is called a Super Blood Moon.
Aussies will have the chance to witness a spectacular reddish hue up above when the earth casts its shadow across the moon during its eclipse phase, but Australian astrologer and spiritual advisor Rose Smith says while visually it’s a breathtaking and exciting time, we need to be very mindful of our emotions.
“Full moons ordinarily can bring out the ‘crazy’ in people, but we can expect people doing crazier things than usual – and this can be attributed to pent up emotional tension," Rose says.
The Super Blood Moon and your star sign
Rose also says the lunar phenomena would have some special flow on effects for our star signs. Which she shared with Yahoo Lifestyle here:
The supermoon is encouraging you to broaden your horizons by making your life larger in some way. Perhaps you’re thinking about studying or travel. Your spiritual journey could also take the driver’s seat in your life now and you may be a little surprised about your spiritual side.
Issues may arise about shared resources and other people’s money. Taxes, superannuation, inheritances and joint assets might be on your mind. There might also be a strong desire for union and deeper intimacy with another person. Relationships can be rejuvenated now.
Important connections such as a marriage or business partner might be on your mind. Transformation comes with issues that need to be dealt with in close relationships. There might also be some legalities or problems with someone you don’t see eye to eye with. It’s time to sort out these issues.
Your everyday habits or work changes in some way. Daily life could get a bit of a shakeup, but this is needed to get you thinking about how to improve your life. Your health or wellbeing could also be affected which could prompt you to take better care of yourself. Change your diet and your exercise regime.
Your creativity gets a shake up and you realise just how brilliant you can be! Even if you suffer from writer’s block or it feels like your creative well has run dry, this is happening to get you to focus on your inner life. You may also have more dealings with children or your own inner child. Your romantic life could also change and this is probably overdue.
There is transformation around your home or your family. Do ensure you attend to any necessary repairs before they get worse. But there could be a silver lining here because you may improve your home in the process of rectifying faults. Regarding your family, change is likely, perhaps children leave home or changes take place in some way.
There could be changes in your local area which somehow affect you. Perhaps there are things like road works or additional traffic. You may be thinking of studying or running lots of errands around your local community. Issues could also arise with siblings or distant family members. With Mercury retrograde, the lunar eclipse and the supermoon, you’re really quite likely to have issues with miscommunications, technology and delays around travel. Back up all your devices.
There’s transformation around your money, especially the money you earn. It’s time to protect and secure your possessions. You may also experience changes around other things you value, perhaps your belief systems. Watch you don’t overspend or waste money on a whim. Buy practical things you need.
It’s all about you! It’s time to re-examine what you believe, especially about you! What do you really want in life? You may be more perceptive than usual and get some extraordinary insight into your life, even if your thoughts are a little cloudy at the moment. Take some time out, especially if your emotions are all over the shop.
You may feel more sensitive than usual and unusually intuitive. Right now, you probably need more quiet time alone so you can reflect on your life. Transformational changes from deep down emerge now so it’s a great time to meditate and watch your dreams as you are changing.
You may need a deeper sense of community and connection with others now. Group efforts and community events, especially with women are likely. Your friends, groups and connections are transforming so let go of the past and embrace the future. New people are entering your life.
There’s transformation in your career zone and if you’re not enjoying work that makes your heart sings you may consider leaving and finding another job. Your reputation and social status is also changing, so do be careful not to overshare online, especially if you’re looking for work. If you stay in the same job, it might be changing - there could be some sort of shakeup regarding procedures or administration.
