Full moons are mystical, alluring, and emotion-stirring. We revel in the sensual pleasure, and potential “madness”, of watching what was once dark coming into the light. We are enticed to walk into the wildness and unpredictability associated with full moons. We imagine wolves howling, naked women dancing, and a lover’s first kiss under Luna’s light. The moon moves us to feel the deep, raw, and uninhibited feeling that comes from something we can’t possibly define. The impending full super blue moon seems intent on providing more fuel for our fires of imagination and creativity – feeding our lunar landscapes, and awakening powerful dormant magic in all forms.
We will close the month with the first blue moon total lunar eclipse in 150 years (in the Americas). We started January 2018 with a full moon on the 1st, and now, Luna reaches culmination once again on the 31st. We have two chances this month to celebrate progress toward our goals, receive the manifestation of our intentions, and more fully see in the light of awareness. The luminaries in the sky reflect our inner light – but do you recognize, feel, and accept this light as yours? While January offers a rare sky light show with two full moons, February will have none, leaving you to shine from the inside-out. January 31st is a powerful time to recognize the amazing source of light that you are, to share it with others, and to fully receive it within yourself.
In the sign of Leo, this magical moon will radiate the Lioness’ strength, pride, and undeniable heart-centered presence. It’s perfectly fitting that people are calling this event The Superwoman Full Moon! If there was ever a time to release your personal primal roar into the Universe, it is now! This full moon will emanate special and rare feminine lunar energy, infused with the creativity, leadership, and dignity of Leo. Leo, the fixed sign of fire, is akin to a bonfire. It’s the archetype of self-generating and sustaining love, worth, and value that fills the world with warmth, generosity, motivation, joy, and creativity. Leo reconnects us with our inner divinity and royalty, reminding us we are gifted with the precious ability to create life.
Leo is ruled by the sun, and in essence, this Superwoman Full Moon in Leo embodies the sacred marriage of masculine and feminine; Mother Moon and Father Sun; yin and yang. The second full moon in a month is called a blue moon. A supermoon occurs when the moon is full or new, and closest to earth. The full moon on January 31st will be the third full supermoon since December 3rd. The full super blue moon on the 31st will pass through the earth’s shadow, giving us a total lunar eclipse.
Because this coming full moon is also a lunar eclipse, we may experience heightened sensitivity. Eclipses are like someone turning the lights off and back on – sometimes we are shocked at what we see after that brief flash. Eclipses affect our personal fields just as they change the earth’s electromagnetic energy field. We can expect emotions to be stirred and feelings to rise from the darkness within. The currents that run through our nervous systems are sensitive, and pick up these influences. Whereas solar eclipses have more of an external effect, lunar eclipses bring up emotional and internal issues.
The full moon combined with the eclipse may be just the trick to seeing more clearly in the mirror of “other”. What we attract in our lives often reflects versions of those very aspects in ourselves, whether or not we like them or take any responsibility in owning them. A fully eclipsed moon often takes on a reddish hue due to the way the atmosphere bends light, so we call it a blood moon. The night of January 30th, and morning of January 31st, will bring ultimate moon magic. The super blue blood moon will get your attention, whether you see it or not, for she will be center stage, in all her costumes, offering the fullness of her heart. How will you meet her by sharing your own light; letting the best of who you are warm, inspire, and delight the world around you?

Full moons always shine a light of awareness on the fruits of our labor; it is a time to celebrate the results of our intentions and actions. During the full moon, everything is magnified. The Lioness brings a fiery clarity and strong will to create, forge, and birth. She wants to immortalize herself in the world, and she does this by birthing her children – her children can be anything generated from within her; anything sprung and expressed from her heart.
When the sky goes dark, we gaze in awe as our ancestors did many thousands of years ago. We now have a much deeper and more nuanced understanding of sky phenomena, and yet even with this wisdom, we still find ourselves entranced and enchanted. Use this time to celebrate your light and how it lives in the world. Be open to seeing what you’ve manifested, and how it serves you and others. If you don’t like it, you can change it, or start over at the next new moon. Embrace your creative self and the fact that you are an artist, making art everyday. Let the Superwoman Full Moon recharge you with passion for living and expressing yourself. Don’t play small to stay safe. Be your full size and inspire everyone to shine. There are no limits to love.
