I don't know about you, but this has been an intense month for me. So much has been going on, and the pendulum certainly does swing. My posts are informational because I feel like each one teach one. Every blog doesn't have to be a therapy session, so in light of that, here's some more food for thought: This month will experience two full moons. The first was Dec 2, in Gemini, and the 2nd is Dec 31, 2009-Jan. 1, 2009, a rare Blue Moon that is also an eclipsed moon, going not only into the new year but we are leaving 9-completion, into 10-back to 1, from Gemini into Cancer. What up with that? How do you feel?
It’s going to be a Full Moon on New Year’s Eve 2009. It’s also going to be a Blue Moon. (A Blue Moon is the 2nd Full moon in a single calendar month – on 2nd and 31st December 2009). This will be the 13th Full Moon of 2009. It’s going to be a Blue Full Moon the same night it turns a new decade. The next Blue Moon NYE will be in 29 years on December 31, 2028.
This minor partial lunar eclipse takes place in Gemini, and is visible primarily from the Eastern Hemisphere.The origin of the term “blue moon” is steeped in folklore, and its meaning has changed and acquired new nuances over time. Some folktales say that when there is a full blue moon, the moon had a face and talked to those in its light. This year has been designated International Year of Astronomy by the United Nations to highlight 400 years of astronomy since 1609 when Galileo first viewed the heavens with a telescope. It was also 400 years ago when Galileo turned his telescope toward the moon and discovered that the moon “is uneven, rough and full of cavities and prominences.” As it is widely known, we tend to be more emotionally expressive during a Full Moon. This emotional and sometimes unstable environment occurs because there is change in the electromagnetic energy that affects us mentally and neurologically. There will be some stress as blockages will begin to crumble and then there will be a feeling of freedom. The good news is that creative and artistic qualities will be discovered as you let go of beliefs that don’t correspond with your current reality! As many spiritual fugures expect, this is the most important New Years Eve we have ever been gifted in a long time. It asks us to ‘flash forward’ into the next 2 years to see what we can see. No matter how much you do not believe prophecy from time and earth, it will still affect your energy field and your choices.
The first penumbral contact occurs at 18:17:08 CET. The ecliptic conjunction occurs at about 20:12:45 CET and greatest eclipse takes place at 20:22:39 CET when the eclipse magnitude will reach 0.0763. The eclipse ends at about 22:28:11 CET. It is only a partial eclipse, but should be visible all over Europe if the weather conditions permit.
