LUNAR ECLIPSE

What does the lunar eclipse mean to you if you didn't look up what the astrologers are saying?! 

 Instinctively I know the moon and I are intrinsically connected. Our calendars and our 7 day week are based on the cycles of the moon. Women's menstrual cycles are roughly the same 28 day cycle as the moon. I created a booklet for women to chart their periods with the moon making it easy to know when you're period is due or when you're ovulating with each phase of the moon. Seeing the full moon never fails to fill me with awe and wonder, giving me a sense of oneness.  
The lunar eclipse is when the shadow of the Earth passes across the face of the moon hiding her from the light of the sun...this rare occurrence of seeing the shadow of the Earth is special. The Moon turns a blood red. 
A time for me to look at my own shadow? What is my shadow, how does it operate? Am I in control of my shadow or does it take charge? Am I friends with my shadow? Do I accept it?  Tonight is a time to draw up those shadow elements and to clean the slate to start again... As the shadow passes it might be a perfect time to reflect on these questions. As the light from the Sun returns perhaps new light will be shed. 
 When we make sacred space in our lives magic happens.
Sacred space doesn't need to include grand gestures or shrines...it is held with the intent you give...personally it is an internal and external exchange, and an awareness of the interconnection of everything on this planet and beyond.
