A rare trifecta occured on December 20, 2010: a full moon and total lunar eclipse, coinciding with the Winter Solstice.
The last time these three events coincided was in 1638 (!) and the next time won’t be until 2094.
Moon-watching experts say that the effects of the eclipse plus unusual atmospheric conditions — especially the explosion of the Icelandic volcano earlier this year — are likely to make the moon glow fire-y red during the eclipse.
Feng Shui-wise this is an instructive event, as the Moon — the most Yin, Water-y being in the heavens, will be swathed in the energy of its clashing element, Fire.
Your own energy is likely to be affected as well, so along with enjoying the eclipse be sure to keep yourself grounded tonight.
One suggestion: toss a golden blanket over your bed to ground yourself with Feng Shui’s Earth element as you sleep.
