Eclipse season – take extra care! Longest ‘Blood Moon’ this century!!!

partial solar eclipse

Can you feel the intensity of the energies right now??!!!

We’re at the start of the eclipse season, and it’s particularly intense because this is an extended eclipse season.  Instead of the usual two eclipses – one solar, one lunar, we’ve got three:  TWO solar and one lunar, and the lunar eclipse just happens to be the longest total lunar eclipse anyone will experience this century!!!

Eclipses bring unexpected changes into people’s lives, so take extra care at this time, especially when driving for example.  Don’t take any risks.


Here’s the information on the eclipses for the next lunar month:

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on Fri 13 July represents the opportunity for a significant new cycle to begin in relation to the feminine. Cancer is ruled by the Moon, symbolising women, mothering and the sacred feminine. This eclipsed New Moon represents the beginning of a significant new cycle in the way we care for others, the way we nurture ourselves, and our relationship with women in general.

Cancer is a water sign, sensitive and emotional, with a strong need for emotional security. This is the sign associated with home and family, so this New Moon can also mark the beginning of a new sense of belonging, perhaps a new phase in our home and family life, or our sense of belonging to a ‘tribe’.

Cancer has a tenacious connection to the past – Cancerians have strong emotional attachments and don’t like to let go of anything! The eclipsed New Moon in Cancer represents the beginning of a significant new phase in our relationship with the past, an opportunity to emotionally release whatever no longer serves us. Thyme essential oil and the Australian Bush Flower Essence Bottlebrush are particularly good remedies for supporting you to let go – contact me if you need to order.

If your birthday falls close to the date of this eclipsed New Moon, this marks a year of highly significant new beginnings in your life, particularly with regard to your identity, your sense of self and your purpose in life.

Your New Moon intentions will be especially powerful this month because of the solar eclipse.  Remember to set your intentions for this lunar month within 24 hours of the New Moon. The New Moon is exact at 12.47pm Queensland time (AEST).

Blood Moon, total lunar eclipse

The Total Lunar Eclipse “Blood Moon” on Sat 28 July is the longest total lunar eclipse this century! The total phase of the lunar eclipse will last almost an hour and three-quarters, and the whole eclipse will unfold over nearly 4 hours. It’ll be visible in Australia – if you’re prepared to get up really early, well before dawn!

Lunar eclipse starts at 3.14am Queensland time AEST,

  • partial eclipse starts at 4.24am,
  • full total eclipse (Blood Moon) starts 5.30am,
  • max eclipse is at 6.21am,
  • eclipse ends at 6.35am in Queensland because the Moon sets (it’ll keep going for longer further west).
  • There’s a great graphic/video and info at

The Total Lunar Eclipse is the Full Moon in Aquarius on Sat 28 July 2018 (Fri 27 July in Europe and the Americas) which highlights the importance of establishing a balance between the needs of the collective and the needs of the individual. It may bring new and experimental ideas into sharp focus. Full Moons often bring situations to a head, and the eclipse intensifies this energy, so be prepared for humanitarian issues (such as refugees) to reach some kind of crisis point, where resolution becomes imperative. Total lunar eclipses are also often associated with earth changes such as earthquakes and volcanos, so expect to see more of these in the news at this time. The eclipsed Full Moon falls at 4 degrees of Aquarius and is exact at 6.20am AEST, so the best time for ceremony and celebrations is the previous night, Fri 27 July.
