Jean Simmons as Ophelia in Hamlet (1948)
The Blood Moon is almost upon us. It is when there will be a total lunar eclipse, where the earths shadow will turn the Moon a blood red colour. The Blood Moon will be visible worldwide.
One of the great things about lunar eclipses is that they are completely safe to view with the naked eye. No special filters are required to protect your eyes like those used for solar eclipses. You don’t even need a telescope to watch the eclipse, although a good pair of binoculars will help.
In Paganism a Blood Moon opens a gateway into the heavens as the Earth, Sun and Moon align. For a brief moment in time we can commune with the spirit world and other realms.
In many religions this is a great omen and many wars and natural disasters have happened around a Blood Moon. Many Christians believe it will be the return of their savior Jesus Christ, The King James Bible predicts: “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD comes,” [Joel 2:31]
There are 4 Blood Moons called a Tetrad, each 6 months apart giving us the number 666 between each Blood Moon, so many Christians believe it will be a return of Christ and the start of the Rapture on the final Blood Moon. The 4 Blood Moons also happen on 4 Jewish holidays of Passover and Sukkot.
The Tetrad started on April 14th 2014 the other Blood Moons are October 8th 2014, April 4th 2015, September 28th 2015. But don’t worry the world is definitely not going to end.
