The real significance of January 31st 2018 Super Blue Blood Moon
Much has been made of late about the Super Blue Blood Moon, a full moon which we will have the joy of seeing on the 31st of January 2018.
Firstly, it is a Blue Moon, because:
Today’s definition of a Blue Moon is when there are two (2) Full Moons in the same month. A Full Moon is visible roughly every 29.5 days and on those very rare occasions when the Full Moon falls right at the beginning of a month there is an excellent chance a Blue Moon will occur at the end of the month. Well, January 2018 is just such a month. The first full moon happened on the 1st of January 2018 (New Year’s Day) and the second full moon, in just a few days’ time, more specifically the 31st, will the second full moon for January 2018 – hence it being a blue moon.
Secondly, it is a Super Moon, because:
The moon’s path or orbit around planet Earth is not a perfectly symmetrical one, in other words its path is not circular, but elliptical. On average the distance between the earth and moon is 238,000 miles (382,900 km), but its apogee and perigee — which are the points at which it is the closest and the farthest from Earth — change every lunar month. A Super Moon needs two critically important ingredients to occur. They are:
- The moon needs to be at its closest approach, or perigee, to the Earth, and;
- The moon also needs to be at the full phase, which happens it is being fully illuminated by the sun
This is why Super Moons only happen a few times a year (at best!) and also explains you don’t see a Super Moon every month. When it is time for a Super Moon, you will know it, because the moon will appear as much as 30 percent brighter and up to 14 percent larger than usual to the naked eye.
Thirdly, it is a Blood Moon, because:
On Wednesday the 31st of January 2018, the full moon will pass through the shadow of the Earth. For 77 minutes, the usually silvery moon will be covered with a blood-red/ochre shadow.
Now, aside from the above three significant facts which give it its name, Super Blue Blood Moon, what else should this wonderful celestial event be making us aware of?
Lets’ do some interesting maths shall we?
- 31 January 2018 = 31+1+2018 = 2050.
- 2050, when reduced down to its numerical essence is:
- 2+0+5+0 = 7
- So, 31 January 2018 is a 7 Universal Day – or stated differently, the day when a 7 vibrational energy flows.
So – what’s so important about the Number 7?
- It is the Perfection of Man
- It is the number of introspection
- It is the Cosmic number
- It is the number of Spirituality
- It is the day of rest
- It will bring success, greatness and triumph, if not actively sought after
- It brings change, uncertainty, vacillation
- It brings positive for those with faith who seek little for themselves yet much for others
- It brings discord, loneliness, misery and poverty for those who seek only for themselves
- It reminds us to specialise, to diligently apply ourselves in a highly disciplined way to our tasks and career
Remember this – man, on his journey, finds that he needs rest, and to meditate in order to find perfection. No coincidence then that the seventh card of the Tarot is The Chariot – a card which represents the divinity in the human, winging his way to heaven in control and triumph.
Given all the above – when you are gazing upward (hopefully in awe) at the Super Blue Blood Moon on the 31st of January 2018, remember the number 7 and what its unique universal energy stands for and, in that moment, reflect (introspectively so!) on whether your thoughts, feelings, words and actions are aligning you with the positive power of the seven or the negative power of the seven. 2018 will be the year of tremendous enlightenment for all – it will be a time when all will come to clearly understand the law of cause and effect – that what you give out you always get back – that all is perfectly just and forever being balanced, not only in the Universe but also on this planet.
