The Superbloodmoon Eclipse Wednesday May 26, 2021

Blood moon by by Megan Duncanson

Tonight is the blood moon of the year 2021. As always, the Blood Moon brings out the shadow side in us all. The dark side of nature. Nightmares, negative thoughts, and even manic depressive behavior goes on the rise. Now scientifically speaking, the gravitational pull of the Moon effects Earth.

The tides rise and fall with the Moon. Some people believe that it causes the water in our blood to change direction, which effects peoples moods. Or even changes how people think during this time. Many believe this is pseudoscience. But there is a correlation between Full Moons and manic behavior.

So much so that the ancient Romans correlated them in their language. Both the words “moon” and “lunacy” come from the name Luna, the Roman Goddess of the Moon. Even today, the name Luna is now a word in Spanish we use for the moon. There’s been a correlation with the rise of violence and crime with the full moons as well. But no clear scientific evidence to explain why there is a correlation in the first place.

There’s an interesting article on this called Does the Full Moon actually affect people’s behavior? Where it explains all of this further. While science may still be exploring the reasons why, the supernatural offers some ideas. Astrological events cause the world to become liminal, that is to say that everything is in between spaces. All realities bleed into each other a little bit. And this is even more true for sensitives.

Psychics, practicing witches, any kind of magic user from any culture is effected. And women are even more effected. Specifically women who are pregnant or on their period. The full moon is a time of fertility for both men and women. But because women can actually give birth, they are more tied to the forces of reproductive nature than men are.

This isn’t some weird “woke” feminist jive. This is ancient knowledge that goes back thousands of years. My Godmother in Santeria was the one who taught me this. And then later on indigenous shamans from Peru and even some wiccans told me similar things. Witches in Peru actually use tobacco in a red draw string bags for the protection of a woman during her period.

Because women become semi liminal during this time. They are so full of life that negative entities could try to latch on to them. Well, the blood moon is even worse. In essence it’s nature itself going through a type of menstrual cycle. It’s as if Mother Nature herself is purging herself of all negative toxins and essences.

Blood Gods and Goddesses and their spirits are at their strongest at this time. Both good and evil kinds of Gods and spirits. And because Earth is a mighty super organism, everything connected to it is also effected. Imagine that the Earth is a being that has an umbilical chord connected to all of us. That chord is what is known as the root chakra.

It’s known as Mūlādhāra or “the root of existence”. This is the chord that connects us to our mother. It feeds us life force energy. It makes sense when you think about it. According to world religions, whether the Norse faith or the Christian religion, humans were made from the Earth.

The Norse Gods carved the first man and woman from a tree they found on a beach. And the monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all claim God formed humanity out of mud. No matter the religion, we were all created from the Earth. So we have a natural psychic connection to it. The root chakra has us in constant contact with Earth’s energy.

We cannot exist without the Earth. We cannot be independent from it. Even the demons, ghosts, and other spirits are subject to the power of the Earth. To it’s laws and decrees. Demons for all of their arrogance, get scared when confronted with simple herbs and roots or stones of the Earth.

Even certain metals like silver and iron can take power away from them. The same can be said about any spirit that decides to come down here. Even earthly salt can be used to dispel the power of evil. So if even a non human entity, or an entity that was formally a living human, is effected that way, we can only come to one conclusion. And that is that all of us, spirit, animal, trees and plants, minerals, the various entities in between are effected by our parent, the Earth.

And whatever effects the Earth, will inevitably effect all of us. Imagine the Earth having a panic attack, and because we are all connected to it, we manifest that attack down to the animal level. So Earth will endure this nightmare state while the blood moon is in the sky. The blood moon is created by an eclipse. This is another expression of the shadow side of nature.

From Myths, Stories and Historical References of Total Solar Eclipses

There are many legends of creatures who cause eclipses by means of “swallowing the moon”. This was seen as an attempt by negative spiritual forces to extinguish the light. The Dragon Rahu being the Chinese version of the story. In other stories it’s a cosmic Toad who eats the moon or the sun. But regardless there is a tradition of negative forces tied to eclipses.

There are positive forces tied to them as well. For many, these are just natural cycles playing out. So that the world can be cleansed of the toxic crap we have going on down here. But it also makes us vulnerable to attack from dark spiritual forces. It’s like an open door for such entities.

Fight Fire with Fire

I’ve been told my mentors that the regular protections don’t work during this time. Instead of using the typical white magic or nature magic protections, we should see things a little differently. We need to act as if we are in winter time. In winter, we finely attune our wards and protective rituals for the time of the dead. Using ancestral magic or nature magic associated with the dark fae is the way to go.


Salting the doors of course. But using black candles or white candles that are specially prepared will also work. The black because they symbolize the dark and will use a sympathetic energy that won’t conflict with the eclipse. Plus black candles are used for destruction of negativity and curses. The white because it symbolizes pure light even in the darkness.

Avoid being too close to doors and windows or anything else considered an entrance. Also specifically blessing your charms for the blood moon is a good idea. Charge them with holy water and pray for them to be attuned to the blood moon. This will make sure they don’t flake out on you. And be sure to feed your guardians good offerings prior to the blood moon.

That way they will be empowered to protect you. You can even offer the protection candle to them as food to power them up. And ask them to help you flush all the bad energy out as painlessly as possible. And to send it somewhere else.


Then when you are safe and warded up, begin praying to your God. Or working with your guardians and asking for advice. Ask for you to be gently purged of all the bad stuff you need to let go of. Just go with it.

It will feel like your psyche is throwing up everything it has. With luck even some of your karma will get an overhaul. But it is necessary. Also remember that this Saturday, Mercury goes into Retrograde. And retrogrades are times when a God who rules a planet enters their chthonic or death God aspect. They say we feel a retrograde ahead of time.

Like three days or so before the actual day. Maybe the blood moon is an early indicator of the retrograde. If so that means this is one hell of a retrograde. Which I had already felt coming a month ago. Since last month the effects of a retrograde have been felt by people I know.

And even by me. It looks like Lord Hermès is getting ready to kick some serious ass. Still I wish he was more gentle. It feels more like a kick in the crotch than an ass kicking. Some serious shit is going down.

You should probably use these methods even after the bloodmoon. Since a retrograde is a chthonic time as well. Also be sure to give Hermès a crossroads offering. And to pray to him with a black candle using the Orphic hymn to Terrestrial Hermès (Hermès Khthonios). Just remember to cleanse yourself with blessed water before any offering to a Greek God.

Even if you are not an initiate and don’t know all the prayers and ways of doing the rituals it doesn’t matter. You can leave the food offerings to him on a crossroads and say the special prayer,

“HERMES I call, whom Fate decrees to dwell
In the dire path which leads to deepest Hades
O Bacchic Hermes, progeny divine
Of Dionysius, parent of the vine,

And of celestial Venus Paphian queen, 5
Dark eye-lash’d Goddess of a lovely mien:
Who constant wand’rest thro’ the sacred feats
Where Hades’ dread empress, Persephone, retreats;

To wretched souls the leader of thc way
When Fate decrees, to regions void of day: 10
Thine is the wand which causes sleep to fly,
Or lulls to slumb’rous rest the weary eye;
For Persephone thro’ Tart’rus dark and wide
Gave thee forever flowing souls to guide.
Come, blessed pow’r the sacrifice attend, 15
And grant our mystic works a happy end,”

The original English translation called her “Hell’s dread empress” and changed her name to “Prosperine”. So this is Greek magic I changed the name and words back to what they actually are. Persephone and Hades. Then after reciting the prayer, ask Hermès by his name of Terrestrial Hermès to guide you on the retrograde. To not allow it to be so violent.

And to empower you, your ancestors, and other guides to help you on your path. Also meditate with him. Imagine him dressed in black and you alone in a cave with him. Or imagine that you are there with your relatives who have passed away. Even with your pets.

And ask for guidance. This doesn’t have to be scary at all. Relax and when you feel like you are freaking out, remind yourself the Earth is having a panic attack. That’s all it is. And meditate. Quiet your mind.

Cleaning out the gutters

You can also purge by means of cleansings. A sort of spring cleaning. Remove all that causes you harm by washing with holy water. And throwing out what you don’t need anymore. Only keep what you want or have to use.

Everything else is just junk that collects spiderwebs and dust. When you shower, you can imagine a golden tube entering your third eye. You are under a waterfall, and sacred heavenly water enters your body from that tube, and washes out the bad energy from the inside out. Your root chakras will release the unwanted energy. And the water outside your body will cleanse your body of outside negative energy.

You can pray to whoever you believe in and confess things you want to get off your chest. Ask for the water to cleanse your soul. Ask for a karmic cleanse. There are many things you can ask that way. You can do this with your guardians as well.

Although they can’t absolve you. For that you need a God or higher divine being like a Saint to hear your prayers and help release old baggage from you. Whether it’s something bad you did or that someone else did to you. Some bad karma isn’t due to anything you did. But it’s due to negative actions done against you.

Like a wound that never healed by instead festered. You need to clean the wound and sterilize it. And finally heal it with the proper medicine. That’s what this time is all about. So while there are things to be cautious about during the bloodmoon and retrograde, there are also good things that can be found and experienced.

Don’t let it freak you out.

  1. Fabulous post. Yasmin Boland did a full moon and lunar eclipse ceremony that was supposed to go live on the Hay House facebook page but some glitch happened and she had to switch to her own page. I couldn’t really sleep Tuesday into Wednesday. Dogs and cats were going wild.
    I finally got about an hour of sound sleep and whatever it is that wakes me up sometimes to tell me to get up, woke me up at 3:45 so I could get ready.
    Tried my phone to login to Facebook. NO video. Finally found the video on the other site and the sound crapped out.
    Switched to my IPAD so I could at least participate energetically in real time with the chanting.
    I can’t chant worth a damn anymore. Doc says I have mild asthma. I know I can’t hold my breath. And I MIGHT have scar tissue on my vocal chords from chronic bronchitis which finally cleared up once I left the city. BUT I can listen and chant internally.
    All that said, I think it’s very weird that the Internet did not cooperate at the crucial moment in time. I also missed the eclipse itself because I was trying to find the live feed.
    The folks who subscribe to Yasmin’s posts have all complained (mostly women) about how awful this week has been.
    My husband, who is down in Vegas, has been suffering from migraines and then we had yet another 4.2 earthquake in Lake Tahoe and that affects him as well.
    Yasmin has written a book about Mercury retrograde. I don’t own it. She did a video yesterday about a mantra. I hope to write a blog post about the Vedic lore about Mercury so let’s keep in touch.
