Rise Sisters - The Blood Moon is upon us.

July 27, 2018

The longest lunar eclipse of the century occurs on Friday, July 27, 2018. The eclipse will last an hour and 43 minutes, nearly as long as an eclipse is even possible, which is one hour and 47 minutes.

A total lunar eclipse is when the earth passes directly between the sun and moon and the moon goes into shadow.

Rise witch sisters! We dance in the light of the moon.



We're in the midst of a summer riddled with eclipses. A solar eclipse occurred in Cancer on July 12, which was all about new beginnings. Think back to what happened in your life around that time, how were you feeling? Lunar eclipses, like the one on July 27 in Aquarius, bring about new beginnings and can also shed light and understanding. 


If you went through a rough patch near or around July 12, the upcoming lunar eclipse may provide the insight you've been craving. If you've been dragging your feet and refusing to accept that reality, Friday's eclipse may wake you up and force you to flow with the current of life rather than work against it. Finally, on August 11, another solar eclipse takes place in Leo, which ties the eclipse's events together, and if we allow it, provides closure.


Full moons naturally bring our shadow self out to play.  All the thoughts and feelings tucked tightly away in your subconscious float to the surface, and everyone becomes a little more volatile, sensitive and emotional.  Combine this with the longest eclipse of the century and we're in for a powerful night! This lunation doesn't simply change your mind, it changes your whole world.  No matter how strong your feelings may be, take comfort in knowing this is a crash you were meant to survive. It's a renewal of self meant to cleanse and gain perspective, and I don't know about you....but I need it.​


My advice? Flow...feel all the feelings and take some time to yourself and bathe in the light of the moon. This is a crash you were meant to survive and come out feeling lighter and more grounded.
