The January Wolf SuperMoon
Ditch the New Years resolutions. If you are looking for the type of site that urges you to wish for a new future, or that promotes ‘Rainbows & Unicorns’ you are in the wrong place! The Wolf SuperMoon in Cancer on Jan 1st 2018 is set to shake things up, not only for you, but for all those you interact with & any situation that has started too feel a little too safe or predictable. You may have been feeling for a while that you are becoming trapped in a slightly monotonous existence. Though there is all sorts of ‘crazy’ happening all over the world, you have begun to settle for something just a tad too humdrum for your own comfort.
If that opening paragraph has struck a chord with you in any way, then perhaps you should read on. No amount of wishing & hoping is going to begin to manifest the life you know you deserve. As 2017 draws to a close you need to step up to the plate, release your inner wolf & grab any & every opportunity with both hands. Or you can sink back in to the sofa & wait for life to ‘happen to you’. This year the choice really IS yours.
Whenever we venture into the darkness on a cloudless night the first thing that becomes apparent is the beauty of the moon, with eight different phases throughout the year we are guaranteed a fresh visual odyssey every time we look up. The next moon is pretty special, on Monday January 1 2018, our humble moon, that impressive but largely ignored glowing orb transforms into a Wolf Moon. This moon is the perfect opportunity to reflect on the events of last year and stride in to the new year determined to grab hold of all experience & proactively make a difference to your life through the choices that you make. The Moon is very special to me. A lot of my most exciting plans have been made under the lunar influence, in fact one of the first Tarot cards I ever designed from my signature deck was the Moon. You can read all about that card & my lunar musings here: The Moon Card in Tarot
Time now to thank the universe for the experiences of the past year, take the positive and build on them. Be sure to learn from any negative experience, but leave them firmly in your past. It really is not healthy to dwell on past troubling experiences & relive them endlessly. Moving on with positivity is truly one of the most transformative lessons you can ever learn.
Preparing for New Years resolutions
This time of year & the period just before a New Moon is the perfect time to start mental preparations for next year. Have you kept last years resolutions, hey, can you even remember what they were? 🙂 My number one was to totally rebuild my website & reinvent my online presence. I am proud to say I have achieved that, my Psychic Tarot Reading Online service is the best it has ever been & I am spending the strange period between Christmas & New Year planning & tweaking as to how I am going to expand my offer to offer my transformational Tarot readings to even more happy visitors.
Change Your Outlook & Energy
The moon lights up the earth at night and moves oceans, imagine how the energy could light up your mood and how it could influence your vision and purpose of life.
In Tarot psychic readings we can imagine the moon as a talisman. Harness this lunar energy with meditation and use introspection to flood change and happiness into your daily existence. Carry the Moon in your subconscious, whenever you glimpse it imagine being flooded with supernatural energy, really believe that this is the year that you can really achieve all of your goals.
Go with the flow
If we would allow ourselves to go with the flow of the seasons, life would unfold in the way it’s meant to. Many times, when our heads get in the way and we impose our own next steps and deadlines, it causes more stress than success. Listening to our hearts and connecting to a higher source will never fail in putting us on the divine right path in the divine right timing.
A full moon happens at the same instant worldwide. The first full moon of the year, also known as the full wolf moon, occurs on New Year’s Day. In other words, this full moon will be near perigee or the closest point of the moon in orbit for the new month.
Experienced observers say they can detect a size difference in size between a supermoon and any ordinary full moon but to the ordinary observer, you may not be able to detect the difference without the aid of a telescope.
Like every full moon, this one is opposite the sun from Earth. It’ll rise in the east as the sun sets in the west, ascend to its highest point in the sky in the middle of the night, and set in the west around dawn. The other full moon in January 2018 which will occur on January 31 will also count as supermoon.
Some observers will call the full moon that will occur on January 31 a Blue Moon because it’ll be the second of two full moons in one calendar month.
However, the second supermoon in January which will occur on January 31, 2018, will stage a total eclipse of the moon: a super Blue Moon eclipse!
What is a Supermoon?
An astrologer, Richard Nolle, coined the term supermoon over 30 years ago, but it is now widely used in astronomy.
A supermoon is a full moon or new moon closely coinciding with a lunar perigee (the moon’s closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit).
According to the definition of supermoon coined by Nolle, the full moon of December was 2017’s only full supermoon. The next two full supermoons will come in early 2018 – on January 2 and 31.
It should be noted that the second of these three supermoons will most closely coincide with lunar perigee. So, of this series of three supermoons, the January 2 supermoon will be the closest and largest. Supermoon is known to cause real physical effects, such as particularly high and low tides.
The Next Supermoon
According to Richard Nolle’s definition, a new moon or full moon has to come within about 224,000 miles (361,000 kilometers) of our planet, as measured from the centers of the moon and Earth, in order to be considered a supermoon.
If we are to go by that definition, then the year 2017 had only one full supermoon which is the full moon of December which also doubles as the first in a series of three supermoons. The other two full moons will follow in January 2018 – on January 2 and 31.
Your Wolf Moon 2018 Astrology
As it falls under Cancer, this full moon January 2018 challenging Venus puts the spotlight on relationships, especially around the home. Whether you are in a long term relationship, or just re-assessing the friends who you welcome in to your home. This new year fires the realiston that you are changing as a person & are just not ready to put up with any shenanigansgans that have previously driven you mad. Now is the time to put up or shut up! Increasengly you will be saying “Actually that really bugs me, can we talk about …” Though initially challenging this will become massively liberating & a hugely cathartic experience that those close to you will ultimately be grateful for. Don’t be confrontational, just learn to bring those annoyances that have been lingering in the shadows out in to the light. This forms the basis of a powerful transitional period. The full moon opposing Venus high-lights areas of your life that need attention. This new year can see you up your game emotionally, spiritually & physically, if you are willing to put in the effort. Don’t put up with any of your sh*t anymore! Get out there, grab life by the horns, smash through your self imposed restrictions & become the person you have always known you could be.
If you are feeling in a rut, this time of year is perfect for an inspirational reading with one of my professional Psychics and Clairvoyants. This year my brief is to move away from the rainbows & unicorns outlook that many lazy readers employ. Have an empowering reading with one of my readers & kick off 2018 with the mindset of a winner.
As ever I wish you only the best. May 2018 be the year that you really shine!
Wow, you really have me encouraged to take the new year by the horns! I didn’t realize so much about Blue Moons and Super Moons, makes a lot of sense!
