A total eclipse of a full moon is a big deal, and we’ve got one coming this week. Native Americans called this moon “Hunters Moon” because it was time to go out, aim arrows, and bring home the meat that would see the tribe through winter.
We still have our hunters, and they are out during this lunar eclipse. Just about everyone will feel a shot through the heart on October 8, with shocking news, the big feature of a total eclipse full moon, taking each of us by surprise.
This news could be business-related, romantic, or even concerning your health. What eclipses do is reveal information about a situation that you were not fully aware of … and now that you know the full story, it changes everything. There is no turning back, so you have to deal. Eclipse news is always final, but you have a choice about how to handle it and the new information will help you make the best decision for you.
One caveat: we are also in a period of Mercury Retrograde, and because Mercury rules communication, it would be easy for you to misinterpret the information you receive. Pay close attention, ruminate, take notes, think back to that last eclipse April 15. Whatever came up then is likely to be resolved now, one way or the other, forever.
This is why I’m lying low in October. I’m going to take the blast from the eclipse (because the news will be jarring, whatever it is) and think about it, reflect upon it, write about it. And I’m going to wait to act until I’m sure I have all the facts straight.
I don’t know what to expect. This news can be in any number of spheres: personal, work, or health. Things have been stirred up for me for awhile, and I can think of something in each of these areas that needs resolution, so anything can happen. I’m excited about it, though, because even if the news that comes from this hunters’ moon seems sad at first, the stars promise that it is beneficial in the long run.
Total lunar eclipses, which always mean the end of one thing and the beginning of another, are not to be feared. They are here to help us understand a situation close to our hearts more clearly, and in positive ways.
And who knows? If your heart is a lonely hunter, cupid may draw back his bow and let his arrow fly. If work has been stagnant, a shake up may initially worry you, but in the end it will be so good for your career. As for health, take care of any little thing immediately and all will be repaired before it gets big.
