Lunar eclipses are always headline-grabbing affairs. They are mysterious, elusive, shadowy by very nature. Lunar eclipses can forge a bound between our lives and our deepest selves, as the Earth obscures the solar Logos and the thinking mind goes into a trance. This week's lunar eclipse is particularly rare and intense, inspiring us to put together some astrology predictions for the Super Blood Blue Moon lunar eclipse.
As its name suggests, a Super Blood Blue Moon is a very rare event. It makes it a little easier to put together astrology predictions for the Super Blood Blue Moon lunar eclipse in Leo, as this configuration has only happened twice in the last 200 years. There are some weird, striking similarities from the headlines that are guiding our astrology predictions for the Super Blood Blue Moon.
Astrology is both an art and a science. It connects the night sky of the external world with the constellations of our minds. We'll be taking a stab at astrology predictions for the Super Blood Blue Moon for both the Inner and Outer Worlds.
The Super Blood Blue Moon lunar eclipse in Leo will take place on January 31, 2018 at 5:29 am. The entire duration of the eclipse will last 5 hours and 29 minutes. This Super Blood Blue Moon lunar eclipse in Leo is conjuncted with the asteroid Ceres. Issues of motherhood will be prevalent is one of our first astrology predictions for the Super Blood Blue Moon. The Super Blood Blue Moon lunar eclipse in Leo also means that matters of creativity and self-expression will be called to light as the moon's light wanes.
Prognosticating based on astrology is tricky business. One doesn't want to get too specific, at the risk of being wrong and devalidating the entire artform. Yet, there are certain striking similarities between January 31, 2018; December 30, 1982; and May 31, 1844 that gives a certain confidence in making astrology predictions for the Super Blood Blue Moon.
Astrology Predictions For The Super Blood Blue Moon Lunar Eclipse; January 31, 2018
We'll start with the astrology predictions for the Super Blood Blue Moon for the external world. Then we'll take a look at the personal ramifications.
Matters of the environment, telecommunications, women's rights, trouble in the Presidential marriage, and Afghanistan may all be dominating the headlines over the next few days.
Women's Rights NOW!
On May 31, 1844 - the second to most recent Super Blood Blue Moon lunar eclipse - William Lloyd Garrison, editor of the newspaper The Liberator, took a bold and progressive stance. "As our object is universal emancipation to redeem woman as well as man from a servile to an equal position-we shall go for the RIGHTS OF WOMEN-to their utmost extent.
Women continue to dominate the headlines in recent weeks as we all reel with the implications of the #MeToo movement. White roses showed up on the Red Carpet of the Grammy's just a few days ago, meaning we are still listening for women's voices (even if the Grammy Awards isn't.)
Trouble In Afghanistan
One of the eeriest astrology predictions for this Super Blood Blue Moon in Leo is an uptick of tension in Afghanistan. Weirdly enough, there was trouble between Afghanistan and Russia during the last Super Blood Blue Moon eclipse on December 30, 1982.
This week has seen a surge of unrest in the always-volatile Afghanistan. Chaos and bloodshed erupted in Kabul over the weekend, and the Taliban is thought to be increasing their hold. Keep an eye on Afghanistan in the news and keep them in your thoughts.
"What Hath God Wrought?" - Information Technology Remains Important
One of the most striking headlines from the Super Blood Blue Moon lunar eclipse newscycle takes us back to May 31, 1844. Just one week prior, inventor Samuel Morse changed the world forever by sending the first telegraph message. The rather ominous, cryptic biblical passage "What Hath God Wrought?" from Numbers 23:23 was beamed from Washington, D.C. to Baltimore, MD. This tremendous event caused certain forward-thinking journalists to proclaim that "Time And Space Has Been Completely Annihilated.'
The ways that the Internet and technology shape our lives continues to be one of the most widely discussed subjects in the NewsCycle. Recently, Facebook has announced that it would roll-back professional content in favor of friends and family - very in-line with Aquarius. It's been announced the CIA firmly believes that Russia will attempt to meddle in the Midterm Elections, so keep an eye out for those stories.
Trouble In Trump's Marriage
Lunar eclipses tend to come in series. These last three lunar eclipses have been hard on the Trump family. Things might be coming to a head with the Super Blood Blue Moon lunar eclipse. The savvy astrologers from Bustle.com noticed that both Baron and Ivanka Trump are having their Jupiter Return in 2018. They predict that Melania and Baron might even leave the White House. This came out BEFORE the Storm Daniels allegations, where it's been rumored that Melania Trump has been living in a hotel.
Melania Trump returns to public life on January 31, 2018 for the State Of The Union address. Considering that this aspect also involves the moon and Ceres, both of which deal with motherhood, there could be some strife in the President's marriage life.
Honorable Mention: Aerosol And Ozone
On December 30, 1982, the last Super Blood Blue Moon, "The victims of dioxin spraying in Times Beach, Mo., anxiously heard a panel of medical, environmental and political officials discuss their plight, brought on first by floods and then compounded by news that a waste hauler had sprayed their streets with dioxin-tainted oil a decade ago. The main message of the specialists was that little is yet known about the long-term consequences of exposure to the highly toxic substance," as noted by the New York Times.
The previous Super Blood Blue Moon in Leo in 1844 found scientist Michael Faraday encouraging his colleague Christian Friedrich Schoenbein to double-check his results on the newly-discovered Ozone.
Something about aerosol and mist might be our most cryptic and vague astrology prediction for the Super Blood Blue Moon lunar eclipse in Leo. It's worth keeping an eye out for.
