Red Moon Rising
i discovered this photograph of the Red Moon today, July 11, 2012. a friend of mine made a comment about it. she had seen something similar to this image and was curious about whether there was coincidence or a signifcance to having both of us see a similar image so close together. i left message stating i would investigate. the following is what i discovered.
the christian interpretation of the Red Moon is: (i will preference this statement by saying that i do not believe in this prediction but in all fairness i will represent what the christians feel.) the significance of Red Moon is: The Red Moon is mentioned in Revelations and is said to be one of the symbols of the end of the world.
i am seriously tracking down Red Moon’s significance: i found this and thought it humorous. In a Van Goh painting it could mean he ran out of white paint. but i still think there is more significance to it than a joke.
now for the mayan astrological interpretation:
Red Moon Qualities: signs, signals, awakened attention, understanding, self-remembrance, divine guidance, cosmic communication, beacon.
Red Moon is the cosmic seed of awakened awareness. Consume it like a fruit, and let it blossom within you. You are on the quest of self-remembrance. If you work with the energy of Red Moon with clear awareness and attention, an awakened state of remembrance will naturally blossom within you. Remembrance means having direct access to your expanded presence through an intrinsic perception of unity. Remembrance is your recognition of the larger pattern and your connection to it, often facilitated through dreams, art, music, colors and creative pursuits. With focused attention, meditate on Red Moon and you will receive help with self-remembrance.
Red Moon is also a beacon or transmitting station. As you open to self-remembrance, you become a beacon and receiver for cosmic consciousness. This communication creates the gradual opening of the third eye, the eye within the mononlith of self. As this eye opens and your communication becomes more refined, you will notice more signs, signals and understanding coming to you. These are all for your growth and evolution – a feedback system from which you can gain insight about your journey.
To the Maya, Red Moon is represented by the raindrop or rainwater. “Drink from my clear waters,” says Red Moon. “Be cleansed by my rain. Receive divine guidance, cosmic raindrop from the Creator’s eye. Godseed of awakened awareness, acknowledge yourself. May your eye be single. Bathe in my waters of remembrance.”
The number for Red Moon is nine, which symbolizes the recurrence of great cycles. An example of such recurrence is the periodic return of master teachers to help awaken human beings on Earth. Nine is the number of Quetzalcoatl, Buddha, and Christ. Red Moon is a symbol for great teachers who have come to translate universal wisdom to humanity, to embody the awakened state of consciousness that is accessible to all. Such teachers serve as a connection to the Divine and hold the promise of full self-mastery.
The color for Red Moon is sunset peach, which can assist in remembering your Essence Self. Use this color for the tender awakening of divine consciousness within you.”
