A Full Wolf Moon Is Coming This Week – Here’s What It Means For You
Arriving as the first of 12 full moons in 2020, the Full Wolf Moon will be visible in the sky from around 19:10 GMT, and is expected to be sitting rather low on the horizon.
This time it's extra special because it coincides with a penumbral lunar eclipse - which is when the sun, earth and moon are all imperfectly aligned.
This often means that the earth blocks some of the Sun's light from reaching the surface of the moon, thus covering part of the moon with its shadow and making it appear darker than normal.
The Full Wolf Moon is named due to the fact that hungry wolf packs howled outside their camps at this time of year back in the day of the Native American tribes.
But it's not a visual phenomenon that's been recognised through the ages. According to New York based astrologer, Lisa Stardust, the Full Wolf Moon and the eclipse could also spell a new chapter in a lot of our lives, and an opportunity for "personal growth and evolution".
Explaining the phenomenon, she exclusively told Tyla that this lunar eclipse will allow us to "let go of drama" and "move into the next phase of our lives".
She added: "While it may be hard to move forward, keep in mind that personal growth and evolution is essential in order for us all to become the people we want to be."
But what does the Wolf Moon mean specifically for your star sign, and what should you be looking out for? Lisa has given us some tips to get through it.
"Take time off from work and focus on you. Sleep in and press do not disturb on incoming calls in order to rest."
"Your words can hurt - especially when you're mad. Try to filter your sentiments before popping off on others."
"Money comes and goes - but, what's important is your relationship to material possessions. Learning that things don't define you is key."
"You're experience major growing pains in your love life, which will force you to evolve and transform relationships."
"It's a time of reflection for you. Try to center yourself and chill out during this eclipse to gain insight into your emotions."
"Friends may project their frustrations and dramas at you. Try to approach them with kind words. After all, you can't fight fire with fire."
"A professional project will come your way at work. Lean into the new endeavor, as it will boost your career."
"Taking the high road is challenging and hard, but worth it in the end if only for you to feel good about your decisions."
"Getting your finances back on track will require some work, but taking the first steps towards clearing debt is important now."
"Partnerships require equality. Keep this in mind when you find the need to assert your authority or power in relationships."
"You're in need of a physical way to release your stresses. Take a walk to reduce anxieties from rising."
"This luminary will allow your creative passions to find the light of day, regardless of your insecurities with sharing your ideas with friends."
Keep your wits about you folks, this Wolf Moon could bring about exciting change, but only if you let it.
