Feeling crazy? Feeling disorientated? Feeling confused?
Apparently, totally normal. If you’ve been feeling this way, I hope this helps you keep calm for at least another day.
Today I’ve been feeling like I need a change and I need it now. There’s a tinny, teeny voice in the back of my mind telling me that I need to be responsible — thanks Dad. I walked out of work, ready to never turn back, until a good friend of mine reminded me about the magical red lunar expected in 28 hours.
I obviously had to do some research. Here’s what I’ve got for you — sources only validated by own meandering experiences.
“At the time of a Full Moon, you should expect a culmination of events to occur within 4 to 5 days of its occurrence. Full moons close chapters and often bring a sense of finality to your life. You can’t have a fresh start without closure in other areas; otherwise we get bombarded with issues that never end and our lives collect so much clutter that it becomes chaotic.
The Full Moon in opposition to the Sun often results in challenges. These challenges can strengthen our resolve and with effort can be overcome.
All eclipses, whether solar or lunar, have the potential to change your circumstances. Eclipses are expressed through a crisis of some kind, whether it is a real crisis or not, it may feel very real to you. Many times a new beginning involves letting go of something from the past, whether it be a person, a relationship, an object or a behavior. This is especially true during a lunar eclipse.
An eclipse can present opportunities for major transformation; this is the time when the energies are more amplified and focused. An eclipse may force you to move forward faster than you might have moved without its help. An eclipse may force you to take action in an area that may have stalled and can bring about changes that are completely beyond your control.
A lunar eclipse may impact you emotionally as its energy is also directed inward. You may you feel a sense of loss, sadness, or depression, as the moon influences our moods and our emotions. A lunar eclipse can remove something from your life in order to replace it with something more suitable for your current life’s path.
Letting go of we have grown accustomed can be a difficult process. During the time of an eclipse we are asked to step out of our comfort zone and experience something that will be a stepping stone for our development as a human and spiritual being.
Trust that whatever surfaces is important for you as you are evolving into the person you were destined to become.
They recommend that you let a few days go by after a full moon before you make any life changing decisions. Often we don’t have all of the information we need to react appropriately.” – http://www.horoscopeswithin.com/eclipse.php
So, here’s my advice to you — hide from whatever you want to change. Breathe deep. Drink wine. Spend time with people who love you no matter how irrational and crazy you are tonight.
