It's supposed to be a blood moon, a full moon with the appearance of looking like blood and it coincides with the season of Easter/Eostre/Ostara. Most people like to associate blood moons with disaster and death. The sight of a blood moon is an effect caused by a shadow of sunlight during a lunar eclipse. Then there is the mystery of a lunar eclipse and strange things that have happened during it. Once you presume that, you look for things that are not even there. The moon has been very bright last night and I couldn't sleep at all. I was too busy running through the woods on all fours, howling, or maybe not. I was just kidding. I was having strange visions though.
Death and destruction happens all the time and a blood moon isn't a post. It's a mirror and a clock. What's been around and goes round in a circle comes back again. Time itself is round and just like a clock, and just as the cycles of a year and the orbits of the worlds, we go around in a circle.
Many modern people are wary of blood moons. Blood moons are just like the numbers on a clock. People shouldn't be scared of blood moons as much as they shouldn't be scared of 12:00 hrs but some really are!
Yes the moon has an effect on people. The full moon certainly turns people a bit funny and crazy. Werewolves come out during the full moon. It's when people are prone to aggression and carnal madness, and when sleep patterns are disturbed and when the water changes.
When a woman is menstruating during a lunar eclipse, and even during a blood moon, it's called a Sanguine Moon and a Fire Moon. The triple goddess mothers (Earth Mother/Erda, Solar Mother/Sunna and Moon Mother) make that rare visit to observe life and do work. So it's advisable not to practice any form of occult magic during this phase but to rest, labour as normal and chill.
However humans are prone to let their instincts take over and behave unrestrained, very paranoid, disrespectful of others, manic, hungrier, insomnia, anger and yes lycanthropy. I'm probably guilty of this if I'm not careful.
Tips on how to survive a blood moon: It's best to shut the curtains or blinds. Hide out the view and read a book or watch TV. Don't go out or make any spells. Avoid alcohol and other drugs. Drink plenty of water and have some salad.
