Amplified Moonlight

In honor of the lunar eclipse that took place yesterday, I am sharing some digital photos I took of the  lunar eclipse from last June at the Solstice.

As you may know from other posts, I love lunar eclipses. I even created a world peace flag that depicts one (not that I consciously knew it at the time)!

Lunar eclipses help us to release old ways of thinking that no longer serve us. They are times of endings and bright, new beginnings. They can bring about flashes of insight that help you make sense of your world and they can illuminate the highest path before you. Their transformative energy stays around for a long time.

In the days of old, Church Fathers (not a mother among them!) thought lunar eclipses were evil and symbolized "wicked" women. AH! Time to reclaim the lunar eclipse, the time when our earth's shadow transverses the moon and turns it coppery red. Time to own our shadow and the collective shadow of humanity. Time to allow the powerful energies of these cosmological events to spur us on to the next level of our evolutionary journey. Time for women everywhere to reclaim their goddess nature as powerful co-creators, protectors and lovers of this world!

I amplified the colors to match the intensity of the energy of the lunar eclipse! After viewing these images I hope you will take a moment to close your eyes and allow an image of healing, meaning or beauty to be revealed to you.

Just to be accurate a couple of photos from Super Moon at the Spring Equinox showed up and my piece below is semi-transparently superimposed on one of those photos. As I said in that post-

"I hope these pictures will serve as a loving reminder of your own inner beauty, balance and divinity and the role you have to play in these times of transformation."
