The Blood Moon Phenomenon

Lunar Tetrad

The totality – total phase – of the April 4, 2015 lunar eclipse lasted less than five minutes (4:44), making it the shortest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century. It’s perfect for short attention spans! The whole eclipse including penumbral and partial phases lasted several hours. The total lunar eclipse was visible from western North America, eastern Asia, the Pacific, Australia and New Zealand. At North American time zones, the greatest eclipse happened before sunrise on April 4 – the morning of April 4, not the evening. From the world’s Eastern Hemisphere – eastern Asia, Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia.

Total lunar eclipses are rare – only about one in three lunar eclipses are total. About four to five total eclipses can be seen at any place on Earth in a decade.

Lunar eclipses usually do not occur in any specific order. However, every once in a while, four total lunar eclipses happen in a row. This is called a lunar tetrad. The total lunar eclipses happen 6 months apart. There are at least six full Moons between two total lunar eclipses in a tetrad.

2014-2015 Lunar Tetrad

The first total eclipse in this lunar tetrad was on April 15, 2014. The second was October 8, 2014. The next two will be on:

All four total lunar eclipses will be visible from most of the United States.

According to NASA, the current century – 2001 to 2100 – will have eight tetrads. The first tetrad of the 21st century took place in 2003, and the second will happen in 2014-2015. The first eclipses in each of these tetrads will occur between March and May.

Another End-of-the-world Prophecy?

Some people believe that the tetrad has special significance because the eclipses coincide with important Jewish festivals. The two April lunar eclipses in 2014 and 2015 occur at the same time as Passover, while the October and September eclipses occur during the Feast of Tabernacle. This, they suggest, is connected to a biblical prophecy of the end of times.

The fact is, eight of the tetrads since the first century have coincided with Jewish holidays without the world going under, so there is no reason to believe that the 2014-2015 tetrad will end the world this time either.

“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.”
The Blood Moon phenomenon has attracted much attention of late thanks to the efforts and solar discoveries by Root Source’s Bob O’Dell and Gidon Ariel.  Not everyone is in agreement as to what the Blood Moons signify. According to O’Dell, “All the prior blood moon tetrads point to a pattern of blessing on the Jewish people. They are good news for the Jews. They are a great indicator of God’s love and commitment to the Jewish people to preserve them, and a warning to those who stand in opposition to Israel.”

First New Moon of 2015

The first New Moon of the Year:  Supermoon!

January 20th brings the first new moon of the year and it also happens to be one of the six supermoons of 2015.   This year there are 3 super “New” moons and 3 super “Full” moons  the calendar line-up of these yin/yang superpowers spread across the year in excellent proportion and alignment to take advantage of the cosmic energies of our galaxy.

2015 Moon Calendar - supermoon highlights

A Supermoon? Also known as perigee new moons or perigee full moons. Perigee means “near Earth.” Astrologer, Richard Nolle, coined the term supermoon defined as. . . a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth, measuring from the centers of the moon and Earth.

The six supermoons are the new moons of January, February and March, and the full moons of July, August and September.

The full moon on September 28, 2015, will be the closest supermoon of the year. What’s more, this September 28, 2015 full moon will stage a total lunar eclipse, concluding a series of Blood Moon eclipses that started with the total lunar eclipse of April 15, 2014: What is a Blood Moon?

The new moon supermoon on February 18 only lies about 200 kilometers farther away than the September 28 full moon supermoon; making it the second-closest supermoon of 2015 or the closet “new moon” supermoon of the year.

Each month, on the day of the new moon, the Earth, moon and sun are aligned, with the moon in between. This line-up creates wide-ranging tides, known as spring tides. High spring tides climb up especially high, and on the same day low tides plunge especially low (the yin/yang of energy waves).

The January 20 extra-close new moon will accentuate the spring tide, giving rise to what’s called a perigean spring tide. If you live along an ocean coastline, watch for high tides caused by the January, February and March 2015 new supermoons.

The January 20 moon is new at 13:14 UTC. Lunar perigee – the moon’s nearest point to Earth for the month – happens about 1 day and 7 hours after new moon, on January 21, at 20:06 UTC.  This is the day to use the harmonized cosmic energies of three vibrational forces to intensify our focus; “to see what you wish to be true.”

Which brings us to the esoteric awareness of the First New Moon of the Year:

Without being aware of the lunar influence one falls too easily under its hypnotic influence and likely to perceive the wrong dynamics behind a situation, take things too personally, succumb to depression or misplaced outrage, and fail to place one’s energies at the right place at the right time.

Just before and after a new or full moon, powerful cosmic forces produce intensified energies that can distract or enhance us and much like a wave in the ocean, we can either ride it or get flooded over by it. Granted, some people are fine with just observing enough to know when to brace themselves for the flood-over, while others prepare to jump and ride on top of the wave. Brace or ride, the advantage is in awareness of our cosmic relationships.

When the cosmic alignment of sun, moon, planet takes place close to Earth, the enhanced bioelectric vibrations are easier to align with our own biochemistry and what happens is like the charging of a rundown battery plugged into an electromagnetic charging station; only the station is a field and the charge is in the atmosphere. Every human being gets this mandatory charge twice a month; one negative charge (new moon energy) one positive (full moon energy) charge. This cosmic charge is as relevant to life as breathing is and it is also an involuntary condition of life just like breathing and under these mandatory conditions we have to make no effort for the condition to keep us alive.

However, just like breathing, we can choose going through an entire life span taking only the basic shallow breaths that come with the package, or deepening our experience of life by taking deeper, controlled breathes; so too can we deepen our experience of charging our energies with the alignment of 3 harmonized vibrational forces by purposefully directing the current of the charge towards or away from us based in its cycle.

A new moon opens the cycle of expansion for 14 days; the vibration of the alignment are pushing outward, so this is a good time for personal expansion as well as bringing things toward you. It is also a good time for starting new projects and manifesting intentions.

A full moon opens the cycle of contraction for 14 days; the vibration of the alignment pulling upward, so it is a good time for personal retreat, as well as letting go of things and habits.  It is also a good time to clear out clutter, give things away and organize your daily structure.

As with duality of all things, the counter aspects of new and full moon energies are that the new moon energies build on implosion (yin) and tends to induce oversensitivity, dissatisfaction, and depression; whereas the full moon is characterized by energy of explosion (yang) and tends to amplify overreaction, violence, and outright lunacy.

The moon rules over the imagination, and during both full moon and new moon windows the unharnessed imagination is particularly prone to being misapplied conjuring misunderstandings, false suspicions, and an unfounded increase in worries. But whereas the “new” moon exacerbates introspective turmoil, the “full” moon externalizes the trouble and draws it out.

This basic awareness is an aid in itself and evidence for the stanch observer by building her capacity of foresight. Once in a rhythm of regular observation, knowing what phase the moon is in; one starts becoming aware of a problem before it happens, predicting and executing suitable outcomes, and staying on top of their game becomes second nature, giving power over the invisible and subliminal influences of nature. With this kind of awareness one can produce more efficiently, have a smoother and more exciting path of progress through life, avoid unproductive obstacles, and gain an unlimited measure of liberation to reach ones highest potential.

May 5, 2012 Perigee Super Moon

This is going to be a very special time when abundant blessings will be made available. According to Pranic healers, this will be a chosen time of blessings for restoration of spiritual health. Meditation and contemplation accompanied with bodily purity, fasting if possible or food which is obtained without harming / causing violence to animals is highly recommended to complement spiritual opening.

The Super moon to appear Saturday May 5 2012, 11:54PM Eastern Time. A “supermoon” is the coincidence of a full moon (or a new moon) with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, or perigee, leading to the technical name for a supermoon of the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system.

On Saturday and Sunday (May 5- 6) the “supermoon” of 2012 appears along with the Eta Aquarid meteor shower and both will hit their peak. While the bright full moon could interfere with the meteor display, some of the shower’s brightest fireballs should still be visible late Saturday and early Sunday.

In addition, astronomers are saying that the “supermoon” will be even more super than usual. “The last full moon so big and close to Earth occurred in March of 1993,” Geoff Chester of the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington D.C. told USA Today. This supermoon (a phrase coined by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979) will appear especially large because the moment of perigee—when the moon is closest to the Earth in its monthly rotation—will coincide with the appearance of a perfectly full moon. During last year’s supermoon on March 19, 2011, for comparison, the perigee and full moon were 50 minutes apart.  The moon will be 221,802 miles away from Earth Saturday night; (the average distance is 238,855 according to NASA.) That’s 17,053 miles closer.

This all translates to a moon that will appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than other full moons this year, according to NASA. (An astronomer interviewed by National Geographic says 16 percent bigger.)

The moon actually won’t become totally full until tonight at 8:35 p.m., and it then will be perigee, or super, at 8:40 p.m. and the actural moonrise begins at 8:09 pm reaching it’s zenith at 11:54 pm.

The Super Moon happens about every 20 years as the moon comes closer to Earth in its elliptical, egg-shaped, orbit. It does exert a bit more gravitational pull influencing weather and people.

The Esoteric:

Super Moon Gravitational Pull

There is a legend that goes along with the Super Moon event where earthquakes, volcanoes erupting and general human mayhem happens.  Astrologer Richard Noelle put forth that Idea about 30 years ago; he wrote about the Super Moon legend: “Super Moons are noteworthy for their close association with extreme tidal forces working in what astrologers of old used to call the sublunary world: the atmosphere, crust and oceans of our home planet – including ourselves, of course.”

Noelle referenced the spiritual transformation this Super Moon can represent – and present to us for reflection. The universal healing forces of Virgo and Pisces are the spiritual energies present during this Super Moon. These two energies combined, according to astrologers, is about being called to a service higher than the Self. This is a time to make a commitment to devoting your personal energies to the highest Good, along with humility and surrender of the ego to Spirit.

The cosmos are a reflection of ourselves on a much larger scale.. The planetary body has an atmosphere and so do we. On a spiritual level, with the super moon, it is a time to detox the air (your thoughts), water (your emotions), earth (your physical space) and fire (obstacles to living your life with passion). In short, this is a special time to get spiritually stronger and meet the intensity of this moment during the Super Moon.

The Moon represents our instinct on a spiritual level. The Super Moon is considered special in spiritual belief systems. This Super Moon is happening in the constellation Virgo presenting a need for healing by breaking through.

Envision the Super Moon as a healing presence in your life to help you make the necessary adaptations and adjustments. It can create a cosmic alignment to your path of life service, and even present a few personal miracles! So, “go with the flow,” allow the crust of old wounds to break away. Enjoy the new healing as it emerges to help you walk your spiritual path, and unleash a renewed and stronger person.

Science:

Suppose we were to take in a deep breath, the air sucked into our mouth is three times as much as a normal breath. Now let’s translate this analogy to the Moon and its pull on the Earth. During full moon and new moon days the whole Moon is pulling Earth and the effect is as if in the earlier analogy the Moon is taking a deep breath. We find that the circular atmosphere of three times the size of the moon is attracted from the Earth.

The generic subtle (intangible) effect of the moon
All objects including stars, planets and satellite bodies along with their gross (tangible) attributes emanate subtle (intangible) frequencies. These physical attributes and subtle frequencies affect us in varying degrees at a physical and subtle level.

The frequencies emanating from the Moon affect the frequencies of the mental body, i.e. mind of human beings. By ‘mind’ we mean our feelings, emotions and desires. The mind consists of the conscious mind and the sub-conscious mind. Within the sub-conscious mind we have a number of impressions that are embedded that decide our basic nature and personality. We are however not aware of the thoughts or impressions in our sub-conscious mind. These impressions get collected over a number of lifetimes.
