A partial Lunar Eclipse is taking place tomorrow. Astronomers say it will be the longest one in several centuries, lasting almost 3-1/2 hours. North America and Canada will see this full red moon in all its glory. (For us here on the West Coast, it begins just after 11pm TONIGHT and reaches its maximum blood-red peak at 1:00am.)

Generally speaking, Lunar Eclipses do a great job of purging and releasing things from our past which no longer server our higher selves and the effect of one can last up to three months. Lunar eclipses can affect us emotionally, so if you’re feeling a bit “off” take a moment to sit quietly and listen to what your psyche is telling you. Our feelings are our psychic barometer so let your emotions bubble up from within. If you need a good cry, let it all out. If you feel like screaming – let er rip!
This Full Moon occurs in Taurus decan 3 which is supportive of those who are SURVIVORS! But it’s Trine Pluto (transformation/rebirth) which carries with it a tinge of the Underworld. Psychic perceptions may be enhanced. Dreams can be extraordinarily lucid and predictive. Shadow work will prove liberating.
The strongest influence on tomorrow’s Full Moon is Fixed Star Algol.
Known as the “blinking demon” it is said to be the most destructive star in heaven, and is associated with Lilith who was branded as a vampire and succubus from the Underworld. (I have a fondness for vampires…)
Who’s that there?
Take a good look. Lilith
Lilith? Who is that?
Adam’s wife, his first. Beware of her.
Her beauty’s one boast is her dangerous hair.
When Lilith winds it tight around young men
She doesn’t soon let go of them again.
– Faust: The First Part of the Tragedy (Goethe, 1808)
“In ancient Greek mythology, Lamia was a beautiful queen of Libya who became a child-eating daemon. In the myth, Lamia is a mistress of the god Zeus, causing Zeus’ jealous wife, Hera, to kill all of Lamia’s children and transform her into a monster that hunts and devours the children of others…Later traditions referred to many lamiae; these were folkloric monsters similar to vampires and succubi that seduced young men and then fed on their blood.” [source]
Whether you love vampires or not, Algol’s influence tends toward misfortune, violence, and sickness. My advice is to “keep it real”. Generate positive energies and work on your soul’s progression – with the help of your Shadow, of course. (And turn off the damn TV – especially MSM. Give it a rest for a day or two until Algol’s energies wane a bit.)
Wear or carry Apache Tears (a type of obsidian). It will absorb negative energy and protect the body from unwanted vibrations, energies, and entities.. (I always carry one in my purse.)
