My daughter was howling at the moon last night… she turned to my husband and me and said “HOWL, MommyDaddy! HOWL AT THE MOON!”
And so we howled! In preparation for tonight’s Super Full Blood Wolf Moon of 2019! I am sure our neighbors were like… okay! But there we three were! We practiced howling like the wolves who traditionally mate during January and February… hence why it’s called “Wolf” moon. Tonight, Sunday the 20th into the 21st of January 2019 – at 7:30pm Pacific Standard Time, in the City of Angels, Hollywood, California, we can view the moon as it passes behind the Earth – and create a full eclipse… it won’t happen again until May 2021. So gather round, all magical creatures, and let’s ground these New Year spells to the hemisphere – it’s time to cast away that which does not serve us and embrace TRUE CHANGE! Howl it away! And call in your true companions, material, spiritual and manifesting!
As it is, SUNRISE is my time of day. Each morning I try to be present to see it expand over my view of the City. At this time, I meditate, think about my day, how I want to approach it. How I want to be different. How I can let go of any resentments. How I want to CHANGE. As we approach this exciting time tonight, let’s think about letting go of that which does not serve us. That which does not spark joy, (thank you, Ms. Kondo for the reminder!) That which is holding us back, or makes us feel heavy.
This morning’s sunrise was quite lovely – blood orange sky beginnings. I tried to capture it on my phone camera and alas, it doesn’t quite work the magic like a true old Pentax single shot camera would. I should stop trying with the phone and get out my Pentax for these moments! The sunrise is always gorgeous above Sunset Boulevard. The magic that is the street, the lore, the energy and stillness before the crowds. We check in with each other psychically, are we ready for this? Do you really want to do this? YAS, QUEEN! LET’S GO FOR IT! And for tonight.. the MOON RISE? YES! LET US HOWL!! We should all live on Moonrise! I am sure there is a street or boulevard called so!
Here is a quick article on this Eclipse 2019 – from Refinery 29 – And there are many others to be found. Howl it out and be free, my friends. Let this first Full Moon of the year – of 2019 – be the one to change your next Sunrise. We are in a cycle, might as well get on and feel the turn!
