This first moon of 2019 is coming with a super especial gift:
Also will be visible in all North-Central and South America continent.
Total moon eclipse the night of January 20th beginning at 10:36pm and finishing on January 21st at 11:36pm. if you live in Cayman Islands.
I am saying this will be a gift because apparantley it wont happen again until May 26th, 2021!!
So don’t waist any time on Sunday 20th just go outside and observe the sky
First let me share with you a something I have learn about total lunar eclipses
I have to be honest I didn’t know this before.
The total lunar eclipse happens only when is the moon is full and the sun , the earth and the moon are aligned in the same line!
Now remember the moon does not have its own light but shines because its surface reflects the Sun’s rays. During a total lunar eclipse, the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon and blocks any direct sunlight from reaching the Moon. The Sun casts the Earth’s shadow on the Moon’s surface
This will affects on how we usually see the moon with its bright white color instead it will turn to looks dark, coppery- red. Hence the name of the Blood Moon
Now let me tell you the 2nd gift it will be also a Super Moon!
Why called a Super Moon?
A Super Moon occurs when the Moon is both, full and reaches the point in its orbit where it’s closest to Earth. A Super-moon appears ever-so-slightly larger and brighter than a typical full Moon, though the difference is negligible when viewed with the naked eye.
I don’t know about you but I think these are 2 beautiful gifts nature is providing to us to appreciate it.
Is there a 3rd gift?
Yeap, according to the farmer’s almanac January’s full moon is the Wolf Full Moon
“The very first full moon of the year is known in many cultures as the Full Wolf Moon, this is a great time for you to plan out clever ways to achieve your goals for the upcoming year. Trust your wolfish instincts when it comes to decisions, but also be tenacious in searching for useful knowledge that will help you realise your masterplan”.
Every full moon me and others “moon followers” talk about is moment to let go, to say good bye at whatever is no longer serving us, to whatever is stoping us to keep evolving, to keep growing, to keep moving.
Honor your emotions, own them. If you feel like cry then cry nothing wrong with it. If you feel like scream will help you to realise ..then do it. If you feel like running with no special direction where to go, then do it.
Avoid repressing feelings. Allow yourself to play, to move, to have fun and to enjoy.
