Four ways to Align with the Blue Moon Total Lunar Eclipse


This Wednesday at 5:30 am PST the cosmos is bringing us a trifecta of energies to

work within the form of a Blue Moon, a Super Moon and a Total Lunar Eclipse. All

taking place in the stars of the regal Lion, Leo. This is a rare and auspicious event

and one we can align with to cause great energetic shifts within ourselves.

There are many components to this supercharged Full Moon and many ways to tune

in our frequency and our consciousness to the vibration of the cosmos. Listed below

are some tips to help align you with this powerful event.

Clear Your Voice

Blue Moon’s afford us the opportunity to clear our throat chakra, the energetic

vortex that holds the power of our voice. Additionally, this Blue Moon is taking place

in Leo, a sign known for her ability to roar and roar loudly. On, or around, the Blue

Moon find ways to open up your communication. First, become aware of your

speech. Is it effective and efficient, or do you tend to talk in circles? Do you hold

back what you’d really like to say? On the other hand, how are your listening and

secret-keeping skills? These are all qualities of the throat chakra and we have the

opportunity to bring balance to them this Blue Moon. Start first with awareness,

then find exercises that unblock your voice. Trying journaling or any kind of writing.

Just open up a page and start with the sentence “I feel” and see what comes out.

You can also try singing or chant your favorite mantra. A simple but powerful

one is the Buddhist mantra “Om mani padme hum”. Try chanting it 8 times to help

clear your voice and cultivate compassion in your heart.



Speak Your Truth

With a balanced throat chakra, you are able to speak your truth freely and with

ease. Begin a daily practice of speaking from the heart, with compassion but also

with fierce truthiness behind your words. So often we hold back our real feelings in

order to make others happy, or out of fear of rejection or just out of fear of

vulnerability. Do not let any decisions, including your decision to speak, be ruled by

fear. Gain clarity through meditation and journaling about what you’d like to say,

then say it. You can start with small things, like politely telling your roommate her

dishes in the sink actually do really bother you. Then work your way up to the

larger discussions like asking your boss for a raise because you know your worth, or

writing a blog about a personal experience that could inspire others to do the same.

Share your gifts with the world through your voice and let’s all raise the vibration of

the collective consciousness of truth instead of fear.

Nurture what You Love

A Lunar Eclipse is a time to fully shut the door on energies you no longer want in

your energetic field and nurture the energies you do want. This also includes

nurturing collaborations and shared energies with the collective. Think about

qualities that are no longer serving you. This may be imbalances of the throat

chakra like complaining, argumentative behavior and blaming. Shift these energies

by embracing and nurturing the opposing energies which are accountability,

leadership, and compromise. The qualities you want to cultivate are already part of

your field. You are connected to every frequency in the Universe, just focus your

attention on the qualities you want to embody and they will become more

pronounced in your consciousness. Focus on what you love and there will be more

of it within you.

Embrace your Femininity

This is a very powerful Moon and a very powerful blast of feminine energy coming

our way. Embrace it! Suspend logic this day and make every decision based on

intuition and feeling. Let go of your need for order and structure and allow beauty

to spring from chaos. Clear the path of your vision by letting go of expectations. We

don’t always need to know each step of the plan, this is a very masculine approach.

Suspend control for the day and go with the flow of the universal energy, trust that

she won’t let you down. Through releasing our need to know the future we are able

to fully align with the master plan of our life. We don’t need to micromanage the

universe, or ourselves. Trust your intuitive guidance and trust that in order to reach

your true potential you must surrender and receive. Yes, some action is needed, but

it should spring from moments of intuitive hits. Actions should be free-flowing and

never forced and your intuition should always be the guide. This Moon is

empowering our intuition, our compassionate voice and our trust in our natural

energetic flow. These energies are divinely feminine and will be pronounced on this

Moon, feel them within yourself and nourish them in your body, mind, and spirit.
