8 Meditations For The January 2019 Super Blood Moon To Help You Feel Totally Zen – Bustle
The first full moon of 2019 is one you won’t to miss. Mark your calendars for Jan. 21, because on that night, a super blood moon is going to rise, and it’s going to bring with it some energy you’ll want to take advantage of. A super blood moon is something we don’t get to see every single month, and it’s generally considered more powerful than your regular old full moon. Harness all of that positive and restorative energy by performing some full moon rituals, including a meditation. While you can do any kind, there are some meditations for the January full moon that could be more beneficial than others.
This full moon is a total lunar eclipse that will be visible from all of North, Central, and South America. A lunar eclipse happens when the moon passes into the shadow of the Earth, making the normally white moon look red. When the moon goes from bright white to a darker, deeper red, it’s mysterious and kind of exciting.
It’s also a super moon, something that happens when the moon is full and is closest to Earth than any other point in its orbit, making it look larger and brighter. Combine the two, and you’ve got a super blood moon, which isn’t exactly rare, but is still an interesting sight to see.
A lunar eclipse has a stronger effect on us astrologically-speaking than a typical full moon. It can influence our private lives, emotions, and instincts, putting us more in touch with your needs and intentions so that we can get a more clear picture of how we feel. But this super blood moon is also rising in Leo, a sign that loves to be the center of attention — so we’ll also want to shine as well. In the end, one of the best ways to take advantage of all of this energy is to meditate, to really get in touch with ourselves. Below are a few meditations perfect for the super blood moon:
