What is a Blood Moon?
A “blood moon” is a common nickname for a lunar eclipse. When the Earth, sun, and moon line up just right, the Earth’s atmosphere filters out most of the sun’s blue light. This only happens when the moon is full, and it turns the moon a reddish color. The scientific name for this phenomenon is a total lunar eclipse. A blood moon can also refer to the fourth lunar eclipse in a row, which happens about every two years.
This type of eclipse is also sometimes called a “lunar tetrad.” While blood moons are not rare events, they are still considered special occasions by many cultures around the world. For example, some people believe that a blood moon is a sign of an impending disaster or the end of the world. Others see it as a time of renewal and hope, and use it as an opportunity to reflect on their own lives. Whether you see it as an omen or a cause for celebration, there’s no denying that a blood moon is a sight to behold.
Lunar eclipses are considered to be powerful astrological events. They are often associated with major life changes, such as the end of a relationship or a change in career. Many believe that lunar eclipses can be used to make positive changes in one’s life. For example, some people choose to meditate or do visualization exercises during a lunar eclipse, in order to manifest their desires. Others use the energy of a lunar eclipse to release negative patterns or habits.
Unlike Solar eclipses, which only occur during the New moon phase, Lunar eclipses happen during Full moons. They take place only about twice a year. If you miss this one, you’ll have another chance this Fall on November 8, 2022.
In addition, Mercury will be in retrograde as well from May 10 to June 3 in Gemini and Taurus. These ingredients spell a recipe for a period of destabilization and renewal. You can expect important changes to take place as well as closures and resolutions to be reached. Here is a look at how this lunar eclipse plays out for each Zodiac Sign.
Mentally, things may not be clicking for you at the moment. Your judgment may be slightly off right now, probably best to postpone important decisions and think things through more carefully. It’s time to take a closer look at your priorities and get rid of the things that are costing you emotionally.
Some aspect of your relationship is coming to a close or resolution. Think twice before making any major purchases, a better deal might be just around the corner if you wait a few days. Your spending activities may attract suspicion whether justified or not. Avoid miscommunication or withholding information from your partner or significant other.
At this time, aspects of your day to day routines may be under scrutiny. You may be in an uncomfortable spot at work. Misunderstandings with coworkers and colleagues are likely to abound and so the less you say, the better. Hidden details will be brought to light that may possibly vindicate you and a long awaited change is on the horizon.
You are in the mood for fun and romance. Any type of creative endeavor you’ve been engaged with is likely to pay off in some way. Be sure to check your messages and whatever inbox you have. Failing to do so could result in delays and problems of your own doing. Your thinking at this time may be susceptible to delusions and self deceptions. For now, avoid making any important decisions until next month.
Home is where your heart is right now. This can be a special time to bond with family and loved ones. Arrangements with friends on the other hand may often fall through the cracks. Meetings may get cancelled and social outings are fraught with delays and disappointments. Life at home may be a welcome respite from the current chaos of the world outside.
At this time, your heart and mind are in sync. You feel better able to understand and articulate what you truly want. In general, you feel more open and comfortable sharing your thoughts and feelings to the people around you. You may find it easier to connect and empathize with other people. In your professional life, you may be dealing with some ongoing technical difficulties.
An important buy or sell may finally reach conclusion at this time. This might bring much needed relief and peace of mind to you. Right now, finances are at the forefront of your consciousness and you take comfort in the resources you are able to secure for yourself. Any travel plans you might have will likely suffer from any number of challenges such as delays, cancellations, restrictions and technical errors and malfunctions.
You are probably ready for a change in your life. Switching up your appearance might be enough but perhaps you also want to explore a different direction and approach to life. Right now, you may be open to new possibilities and ways to transform or redefine yourself. Be careful with regards to debts and handling of other people’s money. There runs a higher potential for mistakes and losses.
Secrets and unacknowledged feelings are bound to surface. This may provide catharsis or sorrow, but either way, something important will come of it. You may be motivated to embrace a more selfless and altruistic mode of existence. Random acts of kindness will make you feel good about yourself and the universe will reward you for the good karma you put out.
At this time you may have a chance to make friends or form a truce with someone adversarial. You are more sociable and interested in people and community events. There may be issues at work regarding communication between team members. Productivity may be hampered by an array of hiccups and disruptions along with lapses in judgment.
You may be particularly invested in the state of your career right now. A significant change is eminent in your professional life. Good or bad, it will be something to adjust to at least for the time being. If you have been working on something important in your career, a pivotal milestone or achievement may be reached. Any festive plans and activities may be thwarted by snafus and miscommunications.
Thoughts of travel are on your mind. It’s possible you are planning to relocate or visit some faraway destination. Additionally, you may have found a new topic of interest that you want to learn all about. Life at home may be disrupted by domestic issues. Various hurdles may sabotage your plans at home. This is a good time to reflect and reevaluate your situation at home and address matters in need of attention.
