TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE MOON

TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE MOON Michael Erlewine

A number of you have written asking for more interpretation of the coming Total Eclipse of the Moon on Saturday December 10, 2011 at 9:36 AM EST. I have already posted most general information about eclipses and their visions (and this particular double-eclipse time within a two-week period), so scroll back in my blogs and read those. I can perhaps add just a little more here on how to take or interpret this particular Full Moon and total lunar eclipse.

First, keep in mind this ‘is’ a Full Moon, not a New Moon, so the textbook interpretation of a Full moon is that a seed impulse, insight, or idea that started in our mind around the previous New Moon, here at the Full Moon (two weeks later) reaches its greatest manifestation or reality for this cycle, whatever we can agree that is. The New Moon is the seed and the Full Moon is the blossom so, for better or for worse, this Full Moon brings what you get to its fullness, good or bad. Most astrologers would agree on this interpretation.

When it comes to interpreting this particular Full Moon’s influence there are, of course, many factors to consider, so I will just give you what I consider the most important:

This particular lunar eclipse will manifest more as a mental and so much not as a physical event, so look to your mind and in your mindstream rather than out toward your circumstances in the outer world. Of course, inner and outer are connected, but the emphasis here is on your analytical and inspirational abilities rather than your practical common sense and physical experience.

In other words, this should be a time to grasp the big-picture view of where you at rather than worrying about the nitty-gritty details. You should at this time be able to see both the forest ‘and’ the trees, as opposed to just the trees. So the takeaway here is of a time where expanded vision and grasping the big picture is possible, perhaps a time more for reflection and analysis than action.

In addition I suggest, for those who are sensitive to these things, that this particular Full Moon may be a time for inspiration and a deeper (or widening) appreciation for whatever spirituality you may have. The idea of oneness, sharing, and togetherness, literally the unity of all life, can be felt and valued at this time – deep appreciation. Music, film, and opening your arms to life is also indicated.

So this is a more spiritually-oriented Full Moon than usual, a good time to gather and share with those you appreciate and love.

I posted this song my daughter wrote a few days ago, but you may have missed it. If you want to hear what this Full Moon is about, May’s song says it better than I can. For those who were not able to listen the first time, here it is. It is worth far more than my words. It is called “Sweet Days.” This song sets the tone for this particular astrological event.
