Make tomorrow's Blood Moon's Lunar Eclipse work for you...
I have never been so intrigued by the Moon, only since i started SunMoonRain. The Moon. Something i have seen all my life but never really appreciated its magnificence and wonder. Just as how today one of my biggest gifts is watching sunsets. Always there both of them, just never really there in my world.
Today I chase sunsets and I am always keeping a look-out for significant movement of the moon. "Free" joys as I call it.
This year on April 15th I saw the most beautiful Blood Moon in its eclipse from my balcony on a holiday at Manhattan beach in LA. I was woken up at about 240am to come out to see it and I can't tell you how mind-blown I was with what I saw. It was blood orange. Yes of course it was blood orange, its meant to be in all the write up's of what to expect. But when you actually see it, in its beautiful fiery glow, its a sight that you will never forget. The orangey red colour is actually a reflection onto the moon caused by scattering of sunlight through the Earth's atmosphere, the same effect that causes sunsets to appear red.
Whenever I see a full moon, I always make it a point to make a positive affirmation as Lunar energy is not one to dismiss and especially during days like this which rarely occur, its power's are amplified so why not harness it for its good! So i closed my eyes that night and sent out the Moon & the Universe a message that I hoped it would hear.
Tomorrow the full Blood moon is in its eclipse again. Please don't think this is something that happens often. In fact, just the opposite - Lunar eclipses happen when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are aligned just right for Earth's shadow to cover the moon. The moon orbits Earth every 28 days or so, so why the moon isn't eclipsed every time it moves behind our planet? The answer lie's in the tilted orbit of the moon, which usually puts it a bit out of alignment with the Earth and Sun. The straight alignment needed for an eclipse usually happens only once every few years. 2014 is one of the rare years with multiple lunar eclipses. Wednesday's will be the second in a series of four—a tetrad—over two years. And that pattern won't repeat for another 20 years or so.
My research tells me that from where we are in Singapore, only parts of the Blood Moon will be able to be seen and that too in only some parts of island as the eclipse happens during moonrise tomorrow evening at about 7pm. But that doesn't matter, I do know that at that time, I will re-send out my message to the Moon & the Universe as since my last one, I do feel I am being "heard,' slowly but surely. I will also write out a gratitude list of all the things that I am thankful for. I urge you to do the same to make tomorrow's Blood Moon eclipse work for you. And don't' forget to lay out your SunMoonRain bracelets out to bath in the moonlight to "re-charge."
