The Full Moon is a perfect time for releasing something that no longer serves you; or letting go of something that you no longer need in your life; or an opportunity to let go of an aspect of yourself that you have outgrown.

Combined with the Lunar eclipse on the Full Moon this Friday this will be an extremely powerful time for starting again and setting your intentions for the coming six months.

Astrologers believe eclipses are harbingers of change — the most supercharged moments of the year. They usher in excitement and evolution. At a lunar eclipse, the shadow of the Earth falls across the face of the Moon bringing unconscious feelings to the surface, grounding them in reality. Lunar Eclipses are culminations of emotional cycles that have run their course, and they encourage us to let go of emotions and attachments that are no longer serving us.

This month we have two eclipses — a full moon (lunar) eclipse this Friday and a new moon (solar) eclipse on Sunday, February 26 — giving us the chance to make big changes.

Embracing the February eclipses is particularly important because there are only four in total in 2017 (some years have as many as seven) and the other two aren’t until August.

Lunar Eclipses are always viewed in astrology as being deeply transformative times that can bring abrupt and sudden change. While this is true, there is another side to Eclipses that is important to remember.

Eclipses are like the cosmic helping hand of the Universe. Imagine the energy of an Eclipse like a Universal hand that reaches down from the heavens and puts you where you need to be.

Gostica: Lunar Full Moon a Spiritual Perspective

Eclipses are rare because they can only take place when the Sun, the Earth and the Moon are all aligned. They always happen in groups of two or three. A lunar eclipse happens when the Moon and the Sun are on exact opposite sides of Earth.

The good thing about Eclipses is that generally you can trust the direction they are guiding you in. Eclipses bring about events that are part of the cosmic plan. These are important times for thinking about your life, whom you need to forgive or what you need to let go of and move on from. 

FORGIVE AND FORGET ON FEBRUARY 10

The phases of the moon and intention setting guide.

Every single full moon brings a chance to forgive, let go and move on. You can forgive yourself and others, no matter how long you have been holding on to that hurt.

The full moon is the time to release resentment, make amends, and find peace.

2016 was very much a year of endings. Endings are necessary in order to make way for the new and this Lunar Eclipse is like the final purge of 2016. If something needs to be gone from your life, if something needs to come to an end, this Eclipse is going to set the wheels in motion.

Whatever you needed to let go of, whatever changes you needed to make, this Eclipse ccan help you to release and let go and open to the new.. Doing a small personal ritual on the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, like lighting a candle or writing an intention down on paper and burning it, can help you to engage the energies of release and usher in new changes.

The energy of this Lunar Eclipse will last until August 2017 and will open a new gateway of energy that is productive, active and positive. Change will happen but it is definitely going to be change for the better.

This Eclipse marks the first for the year and is going to be an incredibly powerful and magical guiding force. Trust whatever unfolds and know that it is all for a much higher purpose.
