[AlternativeAnswers] Change and the Super "Blood" Moon Eclipse ~ September 27-28, 2015

 

Good Morning!

Change and the Super "Blood" Moon Eclipse ~ September 27-28, 2015

Occurring Sunday September 27th in the United States and Monday September 28th, 2015 in Europe.

This "triple treat" will be a metaphysical feast to behold. The first part of this is the supermoon. 
A Supermoon is defined as a new or full moon which occurs when the moon is at or near (within 90%) of its closest approach to Earth.

The second aspect of this is the "blood moon".  A blood moon is a full moon which appears coppery red during a total lunar eclipse. That is because the dispersed light from the Earth's sunrises and sunsets falls on the face of the moon at mid-eclipse. Therefore, the term "blood moon" can be applied to most all total lunar eclipses. This is also the month of the Hunter Moon. In ancient lore, it is also called a Blood Moon often because it is an Autumn full moon and tends to rise soon after sunset. Because the moon rises lower in the sky at this time of year, the atmosphere between us and the moon makes it look reddish.

This also happens to coincide with a very famous prophecy called "The Blood Moon Prophecy" This is a hypothesis proposed by some Christian ministers, such as John Hagee and Mark Biltz, which states that an ongoing tetrad (a series of four consecutive lunar eclipses—coinciding on Jewish holidays—with six full moons in between, and no intervening partial lunar eclipses) which began with the April 2014 lunar eclipse is a sign of the end times as described in the Bible in Acts 2:20 and Revelation 6:12.

This also coincides with the Lunar Moon Festival. Living my life in New York City, I was introduced to The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival, as a popular lunar harvest festival celebrated by the Chinese and Vietnamese people.  The celebration became popular during the early Tang Dynasty. A written collection of rituals of the Western Zhou Dynasty describes this festival from 3,000 years ago. The festival is held on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar, which is in September or early October in the Gregorian calendar, close to the Autumnal equinox. The "Moon Festival" is celebrated yearly and is a time to share stories, read and write poetry and eat moon cakes.

The total lunar eclipse occurs when the earth comes between the moon and the Sun, cutting off the light of the Sun from the moon. A lunar eclipse is always on a full moon and represents an ending or culmination points. They bring up memories, reoccurring dreams and powerful emotions. A lunar eclipse of the moon can help us to anticipate major changes that are forthcoming in our own lives. it is a moment when the effects of the full moon are very much amplified, while the South Node of the moon is getting enlightened by the Sun, and the North Node, brings forth our deepest aspirations and intuitions toward our spiritual meaning in this life. 


With the seasonal transition into Fall, this is a very powerful time of change. Change is motivated by
the movement of the earth around the sun and there is no getting around this. So as the world changes and the seasons pass, so must our lives in tandem with it.

Change is inevitable.

Our lives are made up of the building blocks of change.

This can be traumatic or it can be less so. The single most important point you can make about change is that in most cases it's not what faces you that's the problem, it's how you react to it.

How you react is determined by how you perceive a particular change.  The Chinese word for crisis is "weiji". Two characters that separately mean danger and opportunity. Every problem we encounter in
life can be viewed that way. It is a chance to show that we can handle it. Changing the way you think, can change a life of stress and discomfort to a life of challenge and excitement.

Change shows itself in many forms. The move to a different career, by choice or not, the loss of a loved one, the loss of a relationship, the move to a new home or simply the change in the weather and how we feel.

Here are some ways to embrace change:

1. Often, in any situation, we must take the quiet time to be with ourselves to observe this change. How is it going to effect me? Better yet, how am I going to let it effect me? What am I going to do
to get through this? Allow the answers to come to you in your quiet time.

2. Take everything one day at a time. Sometimes situations can become overwhelming when looking at the big picture. Again, take your quiet time to observe the moment. Allow yourself to take all the time, take the space that you need to grasp the change.

3. Breath. Deep breathing allows us to open our chest and expand. It clears our minds and bodies of toxins and should be used as a tool for change. Allow the breathe to cleanse you and make room for
change. Make room for something different.

4. Support. We are always put at ease when we have support behind us. In these vulnerable moments, we can find strength in others. If you have a good friend, a family member, a loved one or a community group that you can turn to, do so. Be sure that this support comes from a positive, unbiased source. Otherwise, it can be more damaging than good. Rest assure, there have been others who have gone through what you are experiencing right now. See if you can take away with you some of their positive pearls of wisdom.

5. Love Yourself. You are the true source to your own happiness. You have to live within yourself. You have to be at peace within yourself. Only you can do that. Only you can make that happen. We
each have our own way of being with ourselves, but there is only one way to be at ease with your soul. That is to love yourself, always.

6. Our belief system is one of the major factors that can get us through situations or can cause our life to crumble around us! I do believe that there is a lot of innate goodness and balancing our
minds do subconsciously to get us through hard times. The other portion of this is how we "program" ourselves to deal with any given situation.

7. Let go of ego. Embracing peace of mind, optimism, the ability to forgive, and a sense of humor are all good ways to allow the ego to step aside and make room for some humble pie.

8. Allow Emotional Release. Identifying, expressing, experiencing, and accepting all of our feelings is your doorway to accepting all change in your life.

9. Be Flexible. You have a rigid, mind set about work, relationships, kids or lifestyle. Learn a lesson from the willow tree and its ability to bend in the great wind. Where as, when we are rigid like
the old oak tree, we can easily break apart under the stress of change. Learn to relax and follow the path unfolding before you.

10. Their is no security in something that is irrelevant or no longer has meaning. When we let go of the familiar, we have the power to embrace the new. Embrace it!

happens around us.

Mookaite (Jasper) helps to emphasize the flexibility with change and
encourages new experiences.

Moonstone makes one conscious of the fact that all things are part of
a cycle of constant change.

Rose Quartz assists in the acceptance of change that is necessary.



Crystals Associated with the Moon


Meteorite:

Properties: are usually solid, dull, mottled, brownish to black. Non-iron varieties amplify thoughts/telepathic sending/receiving, greater awareness, some connection to extraterrestrial life. Odd/unusual energy, best used by those drawn to them. Some believe that since Meteorites are in tune with the energies of the cosmos and therefore more capable of raising our energies to a universal level. Others believe that that since they have no connection to Earth. Perhaps a reasonable way to approach this stone is to try and tune into its energy on an intuitive level and decide whether or not it would play a good role in your life. (This is a good rule for all stones or gems of the Earth as well).

Moldavite:

Properties: Variety of Tektite, but twice as rare! (fell to earth). Dull outside, deep clear green inside. Powerfully expands psychic abilities, channeling. On Heart Chakra. Eases longing to leave earth. On pillow, brow, crown: Telepathic access to spiritual laws, info from higher regions/places to help us and Earth to be healthier and more spiritual. An intense meteorite helping people incarnating from elsewhere to be more comfortable here on earth (reducing asthma, toxin sensitivity, emotional intensity, epilepsy...)(May make some too spacey; be sure to ground yourself after use and before driving). Fragile - Don't salt cleanse! More rare, expensive and powerful than "tektite."

Moonstone:

Properties: I love working with this stone for the full moon. This is feldspar translucent with white, pink, yellow, gentle, a soft sheen. It honors the Goddess in all women, Dieting, gardening, psychic awareness, and meditation are all wonderful uses for this stone. It soothes stress, anxiety, women's hormones/menstrual imbalance and lymph issues. Enhances intuitive sensitivity via feelings and less overwhelmed by personal feelings. Greater flexibility and flow with life. Connects 2nd and 6th Chakra and Pineal for emotional balance, gracefulness. Helps all be more comfortable with our gentler feminine/yin receiving side. Especially for water signs. Used for protection against the perils of travel. Known to be of ancient spiritual significance in their connection to the moon and the intuitive aspect of one's nature. Helps cool, soothe, and calm over-reactions to emotional and personal situations. Makes one conscious of the fact that all things are part of a cycle of constant change. They open us up to the feminine and are associated with sensitivity, intuition, and clairvoyance. Beneficial for those involved in agriculture. Moonstone's effect upon the menstrual cycle is powerful. At the time of the full moon or menstruation, women should be aware of their sensitive emotional nature and remove these stones.

 Black Moonstone:

Properties: I love working with this stone for the new moon. It is a great crystal for finance and prosperity. It will help attract a gradual increase in your finances and you will begin to feel more financial security. Like the new moon, changing to the full moon, black moonstone is symbolic of this "new moon beginning" and the ideal time to plant the seeds of good intentions in order to watch them grow. Black moonstone will help to improve concentration, particularly in frenzied workplaces. Your home and relationships will feel more grounded and settled when black moonstone is in use. It enhances intuition and inner knowing and connects you to understanding your feelings and emotions. Black Moonstone can be used for general psychic protection. Black Moonstone goes well with rainbow moonstone, black obsidian, jet and labradorite. Black moonstone will also help to increase stamina. It is associated with the earth element, the zodiac sign of Aquarius and the Root Chakra.

 Obsidian:

Properties: Obsidian is actually natural glass that is formed when hot lava is submerged in water. This is a strong grounding stone and is known as "the protector". It is said to "mirror one's soul. This stone brings about objectivity, dis-attachment and is grounding. It reduces fantasy and escapism. Absorbs and dissolves anger, criticism, fear, and therefore is protective. This unusual black stone absorbs darkness and converts it to white light energy. It is a warm and friendly stone, which is used at the Root Chakra, encouraging ones survival instincts and is grounding. Black obsidian brings higher Chakra light into lower ones; cleanses and uplifts. Changes fear into flexibility with the advent of change.

Pearl:

Properties: In tune with emotions, water, and women, especially pregnant women, pearls are a symbol of pure heart and mind; innocence and faith. Because it is from the sea, it has watery and lunar elements, therefore it is used for balancing emotions, especially for water signs. Absorbing by nature, this mineral absorbs thoughts and emotions and because of this, must be used with caution. If you feel excessively negative while wearing a pearl, it will hold that energy until it is cleansed. Remember, Pearl is the result of layer upon layer of substance produced to combat irritation. Pearl can cool and soothe. It is very nurturing. Recommended for occupations as varied as artists, chiropractors, and farmers. Pearl is a cold and independent mineral, which is used, ironically at the Heart, Solar Plexus and Sacral/Spleen Chakra, to stimulate the heart, liver and emotional issues, digestion, immunity weakness and emotional stress. Pearls are mentally stabilizing, generate beautiful skin and clear toxins. Divers wear pearls for shark protection. Pearl attunes to cancer and is one of the 9 sacred Vedic stones associated with the moon.

Selenite:

Properties: This is the mineral gypsum. Its white/clear striated crystaline body is a sheer source of calming, spiritual light. It works with the higher spiritual Chakra in accessing our higer consciousness, spirit guides and the angelic realm. Beacuse of its striations, like tourmaline, it works along the spinal column grounding and anchoring our Earth vibration and utilizing kundalini to rise freely up our light body stimulating each center as it vibrates. This stone is highly recommended for meditation and working on the sacred spiritual in your life. Through meditation with selenite, growth and mental focus is attainable.

Silver:

Properties: This metal is excellent for mental, emotional, and physical releasing and cleansing. Works on mind/emotions to see life's overview, our emotional balance, and need for patience. Like the moon's energy, silver has a gentle, cool, smoothing effect. Therefore, it reduces inflammation, fever, nervous system stress. Best with the gentler, cooler-colored gems. Works with pituitary and upper energy centers, therefore, works well on the psychic mind, unconditional love and healing. Generally, it has a cooling Yin energy. Wear this metal when you feel attracted to it. Silver works best as a communicator.

Tektite:

Properties: is a type of natural glass, chemically and structurally unique, of meteoric origin. Tektites are found on earth within a narrow equatorial belt 80 degrees wide. They have been found in Thailand, Australia, Vietnam and the Philippines. Tektites usually have a heavily pitted surface. Many have the appearance of being stretched while in a molten state. They appear black, but when held up to the light, you can sometimes see a golden tint in translucent areas around the edges. Assists one in attaining knowledge and learning lessons throughout the travels of life. Balances the feminine/masculine, provides insight, strengthens one's energy field. Can stimulate thought transmissions.
