Today is a very special day that has the spiritual community on TikTok in an uproar. Have you been feeling off this week? Have you been more emotional and exhausted than usual? Experiencing more headaches or migraines? Is there more tension in your relationships? Or maybe people are acting “crazier” than usual at work?
There’s a reason for this and it might surprise you.
Tonight, we’re going to experience not only a full moon, but also a BLOOD moon with a full lunar eclipse. There are also some other astrological anomalies that we’re about to experience this week too. Factor that in with the June 1st deadline for the Pentagon to release information about UFOs – and this next week could get really interesting.
Last night, I couldn’t sleep. I decided to grab my camera and took some shots of the moon. The color of the moon reminded me of an old saying I heard as a kid. And there was this weird haze and glow around the moon that I had never seen before. And let me tell you – I sky watch, a lot. I have been obsessed with space related subjects all my life.
Unfortunately, where I live, there was a lot of haze and cloud coverage in the sky. I managed to get some videos
Blood moon omen
There are prophecies in the Bible that state a blood moon is the sign of the end of times. In other practices like Witchcraft, blood in the moon is an omen in which “bad things will follow.” A blood moon combined with a full moon and lunar eclipse is an even rarer occurrence that we do not see often.
I’m not a religious person, but I do find these stories to be fascinating – especially in rare events like tonight’s moon.
In The Book of Joel, when the moon and waters turned to blood, it was an omen, predicting that the end of times was near.
“the sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes,” it reads.
There are other passages like this one, “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood.”
Now that’s just great storytelling. And it inspired a storyline in the hit show Supernatural where Sam Winchester was tricked by a demon to open the seals of hell. Spoiler alert.
Ancient civilizations believed that the blood moon was a harbinger of evil. The Incas thought the deep red color was attacking and eating the moon by a supernatural jaguar. The belief was that the jaguar would come to earth.
In Mesopotamia, lunar eclipses were thought of as an assault on their king. The Mesopotamians were an advanced civilization that could predict lunar ellipses and other astronomical events with great accuracy.
In Hindu mythology and tales, lunar eclipses were thought to be the result of a demon named Rahu drinking the elixir of immortality. It is believed that an eclipse will bring bad luck and fortune.
In some Native American tribes and villages, it is believed that the lunar eclipse is a sign the moon needed healing following the eclipse. The villages would gather together and sing, chant and dance calling upon natural forces to heal the moon.
In some religions like Christianity, it is believed that a lunar eclipse and blood moon combined together, was the wrath of God.
In Jewish culture, the blood or super moons in 2014-2015, aligned with Jewish holidays. This has only happened a few times throughout history. Each event was followed with bad events or news.
In Hindu mythology, the blood moon attracts interest in the sky and astrological events. Rather than waiting for the gloom and doom, people often use these celestial events to learn more about how our solar system works.
The science behind blood moons
The super blood moon is a rare occurrence. According to NASA, the earth lines up between the moon and the sun. The air molecules from the earth’s atmosphere scatter throughout the sky. The remaining light reflects onto the moon’s surface producing this red glow. And as I saw last night, a very interesting haze.
For a moment as I was taking this video, I thought the moon was behaving more like the sun. I can usually get a good picture of the moon with my camera, but it was like there was some kind of energy around the moon that was blocking my camera. It created a very strange effect that I have never seen before.
According to Space.com, blood moons only happen about once or twice a year. Here’s a look at their calendar of upcoming moon events.

All in all, last night was pretty fascinating. It was really cold – colder than usual for this time of year. The wind was so brutal I had to shut the balcony door. Luckily, I could take the photos from inside as I face the moon at night time.
But something about this image really bothered me. I’m not sure I believe in all the superstitions and mythology around the moon. And while the blood in the moon is quite beautiful, it’s also unnerving to witness.
Maybe I’ve seen one too many horror movies or end of times sci-fi flicks.
All I know is that events like these, only fuel my obsession to learn as much as I possible can about things like astrology, astronomy and other space events.
And to top it off — if you’re an astrology fan – then you might want to stay indoors tonight and practice some meditation and self-care. Check out some of these fascinating events that are happening tonight.
