On the night of January 20-21, the Full Moon will pass through the northern half of Earth's shadow, producing a Total Lunar Eclipse.
Why is it called a "Super Blood Wolf Moon" eclipse?
'Wolf Moon' is the name that almanac writers assigned to the first Full Moon of the year. It's often attributed to Native American folklore by these same almanacs, however, while various tribes did have names for each month's Full Moon, the almanac names are very likely made up. 'Blood Moon' obviously refers to the red color of the Moon during a total lunar eclipse.
Also, since the Moon will be very near perigee (its closest distance to Earth), it will be larger and brighter than normal - a so-called 'Super Moon'. It's an astrological term, for a New or Full Moon that is within 90 per cent of its closest approach to Earth for that month. Basically, when either the New Moon or Full Moon is closer to Earth than 361,520 km, and on January 21, just after midnight, the Moon will be at a distance of 357,728 km.
How does this affect energy flow and spell work? Well, since there is great influence of the moon on the energy flow (think tides and such at a basic level) of the earth and universal flow....the closer it is to the earth the more prevalent and intense that energy influence is. The eclipse adds a little bit of chaos to the magick however.
During a lunar eclipse a witch will face his/her insecurity, you must not only be able to imagine that a change can occur and what will this change bring but you must also have the willpower to proclaim: “I am ready and perfectly prepared for this change and I will make it happen”. A lunar eclipse is the perfect timing to face the past and find out the roots of your fears/insecurities, how they are linked to you, your emotions and your current state of being. To that personal journey you are advised to seek the guidance of your allies: angels, fairies, ghosts of loved ones, your higher self, the God(s) that will help you in your quest for truth and the time of the eclipse is perfect for that as it will allow you to contact ‘other worlds” and “other states of being”.
As a piece of advice never try spellcasting during an eclipse, unless you are very well prepared for this. Not only natural powers run loose and you will find difficult to ground them but the outcome of your spells cannot easily be predicted. It takes both a disciplined and experienced witch to harvest the power of the eclipse magic and is certainly not advised for beginners. An alternative to spellcasting can be contemplation and meditation on what you have experienced so far in your life. In addition, it is a good time to honor yourself, the Gods and beings of other worlds.
To take it one step further you may wish to initiate a contact with the Divine Forces. I will use Fairies as an example. So during an eclipse you can establish your first connection with the Fairies. Be aware that you must know well why you want to contact fairies and please bear in mind that curiosity is not a good reason.
