Astro Oracle | The Moon Woman

Greetings Divine Beings!

We are now approaching a very auspicious event…a Super Moon AND a Blood Moon which occurs when we have a total lunar eclipse. 

A Super Moon is when the moon is extra close to Earth so it appears bigger, brighter & has more effect on our moods & energy levels amplifying the effect of this blood moon. 

A blood moon is when the moon appears red. This occurs during a total lunar eclipse when the Sun, Earth & Moon are in complete alignment with the Earth located directly between the Sun & the Moon. So a small amount of the Sun’s light is projected as a reddish shadow on the face of the moon.

Now whilst Patriarchal consciousness would portray that as a night for werewolves & vampires, it’s actually a night of initiation by the sacred feminine…a shamanic wake up call to identify where you are being your own worst enemy. 

Many will have found the initiation has already begun! In the lead up to this eclipse you may feel eclipsed by your shadow, contracting into your fears, wounds & old self limiting beliefs.  

Here’s 5 simple steps to transcend your fears so you don’t unwittingly manifest your worst nightmare.

1. Write down your fears & limiting beliefs.
2. Write down affirmations that are the opposite of each one.
3. Either burn your fearful thoughts in a fire or visualise them burning in the violet flame of transmutation.
4. Expand your awareness to encompass your home, town/city, country, hemisphere, planet & beyond until your consciousness is free floating in the galactic centre of our Universe & seed each affirmation starting with the words, ‘I’m so happy & grateful…’
5. Do step 4 daily as part of your morning meditation.

During the dark ages people feared blood moons as a bad omen but when we operate in fear we create our lowest possible outcome. Whereas if we revere the darkness (be it mid-Winter, new moon or total lunar eclipses) we transcend our fear & access greater personal power through self-awareness. This is the gift of the ancient sacred feminine wisdom teachings & practices. 

So with that in mind, this full moon eclipse is a wonderful portal to invoke the energies of Kali Ma, the archetypal dark mother who helps us own our shadow & pray for a complete transformation – both personally & for the collective. 

This full moon occurs at 0 degrees in Leo indicating a new era in sacred leadership / kingship / queendom if we can transcend our fears. Equally the covert activities of those in power may be illuminated this week acting as a catalyst to awaken the sovereign within us all. 

Here’s the exact time of this week’s full moon:

New Moon in Libra

Full Moon in Leo

Archetypal Energy: The King / Queen / Leader
Lesson:To be brave & lead from the heart

This week we may be forced to acknowledge what our heart wants to do…rather than trying to uphold plans or expectations made by our head than don’t resonate with our heart’s deepest desires.

Leo asks us to be true to our heart, regardless of the consequences. That takes real bravery – to stay centred in the heart & speak & act accordingly.

Leo is a fire sign, ruled by the sun which asks us to express ourselves creatively. That will look different for everyone – but essentially doing what feels like play rather than work for us.

Leo full moon invites us to participate fully in the dance of life by risking looking like a fool or losing everything to take part as a committed player on the global or local stage. In other words, will you dare to be visible?

If our inner light is weak we may lack the optimism & confidence to do this, so instead this week may see us imploding like a black hole, consumed with self-doubt & al manner of fears…like a mouse instead of a lion.

The key is to finding our lion-heart comes from reconnecting with the eternal light of the sun that is within us as a divine spark and counting our blessings – seeing the divine in & all around us.

This shift in attitude helps us celebrate with gratitude all that we do have so we feel generous of Spirit & gregarious. Otherwise if we focus on what we don’t have we feel increasingly pessimistic and miserly, which can lead to feeling envious & resentful toward others for their perceived successes & good fortune.


Look at Me!!!!

Unlike other full moons which feel like party time, being a total lunar eclipse we may all feel like we’re menstruating! i.e. introspective, dark & moody until we identify our inner saboteur & take responsibility for it shifting our ‘tude.

It is this ability to acknowledge our shadow – how we’re being our own worst enemy that matures us. If we don’t do this we act out our latest drama to anyone who’ll listen. Shadow Leo is the drama queen / king so observe who around you is demanding attention rather than doing the work to grow up…& the work never stops, so just be sure it isn’t you!

My Latest News

Well, I’m happy to be back with Franz in Ubud, Bali (above is his Dr Suess style round house) after trip back to Oz to reconnect with my soul sisters over Xmas & New Year’s.

Feeling so blessed to be greeted at the airport with roses & then a second tropical arrangement in the car!

During sun transiting through Capricorn (the sign of long-term commitment) our decision to cohabit was reached in a very pragmatic way as his Capricorn sun & my Capricorn moon decided it made sense for me to give up my apartment & save on outgoings since we’d be travelling together for most of the year taking our Sacred Union tour around 4 continents & doing the Grail retreats for men in both hemispheres. Our sun / moon connection highlights how our joint purpose is central to our destiny…that being to restore rites of passage!

So I’m super excited to announce my Rites of Passage course is NOW OPEN for registrations!!!!

To celebrate this auspicious blood moon the course materials for my Feminine Rites of Passage will be made available on the full moon eclipse (Monday, Jan 21)… 

AND! Franz & I will be doing a LIVE video speaking about the Grail rite on my Moon Woman FB page at 10am Bali time. To see that in your local time click here 

Please Note: It will also be available as a recording on both my FB Moon Woman page &  You Tube channel if the LIVE time doesn’t suit.

BTW if you missed the last issue, I’ve just opened registrations for my first two European retreats in April & May! See below for all the details. 🙂   

Thanks for tuning in, witnessing my journey & sharing my insights!

🙂 Blessings, Tanishka
