Full Moon on 1/31/2018: All About the First Blue Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse in 150 Years!

We’re making history!

The combination of a Total Lunar Eclipse that’s also a Blue Moon has not occurred in over 150 years. On January 31, 2018, this Blue moon is a super moon too.

***Scroll down for times of visibility where you live.***

But wait there is more. This is also a Mega Red Day in the Conscious Calendars system, and is also called a blood moon. You will get MORE information HERE on what to do with this phenomena to catapult your personal development and spiritual practices, below than all the other sites out there just telling you this is cool and to go look at it.

Mega Red Days are windows in time where illusions are strong, and when we can unhook from mistaken beliefs about ourselves, we can make great strides in developing discipline, and stopping habits we consider to be negative for our health.
Why? Because it is really easy to get sucked into some of the distractions or confusion or strange energies in and around total lunar eclipses – and when you can make Pro-active choices for your health, like saying NO to something ON the eclipse day, this ripples into your life for 6 months!Since we have a partial solar eclipse coming up Feb 15, this post will help you now and to help you prepare for the next eclipse too.

150 Year Old Blue Moon

A Blue Moon is simply the second full moon in a calendar month. A Blue Moon is not too rare, we have another one this year, as a matter of fact. But a Blue Moon that is also a Total Lunar Eclipse (or a Blood Moon)? That hasn’t happened for 150 years!

The last time we had a total eclipse of a Blue Moon was on March 31, 1866. The next time this event will occur will be in almost 11 years on Dec 31, 2028 and then exactly in 19 years from this year’s on Jan 31, 2037. These are all total lunar eclipses and Blue Moons. (thanks to Space.com for the facts)

Eclipse Days are also Mega Red Days in the Conscious Calendars system. Mega Red Days  are days the life forces are blocked and these are not typically good days for commerce, money making, or creative acts, for things like weddings or signing important documents or starting important endeavors.

Instead Mega Red Days are great days for spiritual practice, meditation, self-introspection, and taking extra care of your health by not over-extending your energy.  These are days where hidden forces, called Rahu and Ketu in Vedic Astrology are exerting greater forces on each of our minds. We can fall into unconscious patterns, or REVERSE bad habits, depending on how we approach an eclipse time!

These are days I actually up-level my spiritual practices because I set the day aside to meditate, get gentle exercise, eat lightly, eat vegetarian, say protective mantras to clear my field, life and karmas, and say NO to sugar and any other habit I am trying to break.
Because saying NO on an eclipse day can be a tad more tempting, I set myself up for success by making sure the house does not have the temptation I am breaking-free from. It could be too much TV or internet, or smoking, or eating bread or drinking soda for you.  Choose ONE HABIT you want to build discipline around, and when you say NO to something or move against inertia (like answering emails instead of sitting in meditation, or going for a walk instead of buying clothes) you are REVERSING habits on an EXPONENTIAL KARMIC LEVEL.

Yes, I just said that. This is what I teach about the Mega Red Days! You have immense windows into reversing patterns – not by seeding something new, but in acting against ingrained patterns that you have noticed and chosen to make a change on that fateful day. This is why Conscious Calendars gives you so much! You get highlights of each month with Red, Yellow and Green Days, monthly updates AND these deeper insights that literally help you reverse patterns and most importantly help you plan to not travel, ideally on Mega Red Days.

And even if you do travel on these days, you can interact with them pro-actively and still find time to chill, be kind, not get upset if travel plans change. This is how you maintain your center in all circumstances, by having your finger on the pulse. Not just sharing that this is a really cool phenomena. You can DO SOMETHING to change your life with this information.

So, please do that! Take this information, and make a difference in your life on any of the eclipse days this year (all noted on the Conscious Calendars of course).

The Mega Red Day report shares all of the secrets of how to use these 4 – 6 days each year for catapulting your spiritual practices and reversing negative behavior.

A lunar eclipse can only occur on a full moon

Lunar Eclipse, Blue Moon and Blood Moon

This is also a Blue Moon, since it is the second Full Moon in the month. A total lunar eclipse is also called a blood moon. So, this Blue Moon is also a Blood Moon which is a nickname for Total Lunar Eclipses, because the Full Moon goes from bright light to deep, blood orange and sheds an eery light on all who watch.
