What is the Spiritual Meaning of a Lunar Eclipse on a Full Moon? By Christie Flynn

The Lunar Eclipse: Full Blood Moon Eclipse

Eclipses represent an influence or period of change — they usher in evolution. At a lunar eclipse, the shadow of the Earth falls across the face of the Moon. Many people who are quite sensitive to the cycles of the moon may feel this transition more intensely. Lunar eclipses are culminations of emotional cycles that have run their course, and they encourage us to let go of emotions and attachments that are no longer serving us.

The lunar eclipse will shine light on a period of time for cleansing our emotional waters and setting intention for renewal and rejuvenation in the coming months. The energetic cycles of the lunar eclipse tend to extend through the next three months after its event.

In a lunar eclipse, the sun momentarily blocks the illumination that creates a full moon, resetting the current emotional cycle and allowing the shadow to reveal areas in our lives where we need to make adjustments. The spiritual aspects represent our deep emotional tides, when the shadow passes over it, temporarily ceasing the illumination of our emotional being, there is an opportunity to reveal and transform our current emotional state.

In astrology, lunar eclipse suggests a transformative time that can bring abrupt and sudden change. Eclipses also offer another 'side effect' much like the cosmic helping hand of the Universe.

Imagine the energy of an eclipse like a Universal hand that reaches down from the heavens and puts you where you need to be. It offers an invitation to leave what feels safe and expand towards any fears that rise up and meet that challenge with tenacious courage.

Eclipses bring about events that are part of the cosmic plan. It's a time for reflection upon life, whom you need to forgive, or what you need to let go of and let love fill up that space.

Eclipses are rare. They take place when the Sun, the Earth and the Moon are all aligned. They always happen in groups of two or three. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon and the Sun are on the exact opposite sides of Earth. There are four to seven eclipses every calendar year. Typically, there are two eclipse seasons.

Year 2022 has four eclipses, two solar eclipses and two lunar eclipses. On April 30, 2022 we experienced a partial solar eclipse. On Sunday, May 15th, we experienced a total lunar eclipse, the Blood Full Moon Eclipse was visible in North and South America, Europe, Africa, and parts of Asia. Total lunar eclipses are sometimes called Blood Moons because of the reddish-orange glow the moon takes on during the eclipse. It's a year of new foundations, new beginnings. More on that with Christie's forecast that follows.

The next two eclipses will be a partial solar eclipse on October 25, 2022, and a total lunar eclipse on November 8, 2022.

The Lunar eclipse points to an ending of a phase in your life. It may feel like a rapid change right now but this period of transition offers you a time of new beginnings. Clear out and breathe in new life.

Cycle of Personal Growth and Rebuilding

With great changes that are happening currently, emotions are going to rise up. There's an invitation to let them go. Let go, let it all out and allow the breath of new air, life to cleanse and support your healing. Lean into those people that offer to support you at this time.

Trust this time which also feels expansive. Take a class, read or listen to an audio book which helps you to discover, uncover a level of curiosity. Understand the areas of inquiry with curiosity which also supports new growth, development and skills that will be revealed. Networking, travel ahead to help you connect with 'new connectors' that will guide you as well. Take a chance. Say, "Yes."

Notice the areas of inquiry. What have you been curious about lately? Who has been showing up for you to guide you? Expand in areas that you feel the soulful tug, or a tug from the gut/stomach area.

Part of this adjustment means letting go and letting in love. To have compassion and understanding for what happened or what is occurring right now for you. As the butterfly transitions from a caterpillar, it must shed its old skin in order to adopt its new wings. It's necessary and a beautiful thing.

Take pride in all that you have done and do. Be the leader and hold your head high. Others will follow you by your example. At times, it's important to hand over leadership responsibilities to others as if you're 'passing the torch so your followers can lead now.

Example questions for prompting a soulful response or knowing:

Am I following my highest path?

Is it time to move on despite fear?

What do I need to let go of now?

Am I acting in integrity and doing the best that I can?

Could I be hindered by my own pride or other character flaws that prevent me from expandin

Challenge yourself if fear rears its head in this way. Let in love and compassion.

Rejoice as you step forward to a higher place with a sure and steadier footing. The mystery of the future directs you into this journey and on this new path. it is a sacred time and place where all things created are not yet formed. It points to your pure potentiality. Embrace the magic of unknowledgeable forces of your soul journey as they are at work now.

Sometimes it may seem as if you're spiraling backward, or in a way that feels uncomfortable, but truly if you understand the makings of a spiral, it moves upward, around, reaching and extending towards progress. Keep going.

In order to experience fulfillment and purpose in life, it is essential to have a solid sense of yourself through your own inner knowing. We are here to learn about ourselves as spiritual beings having a human experience.
