Rose Smith says while the May 26 ‘flower super moon’, which is coupled with a rare total lunar eclipse, is likely to be breathtaking for spectators it will also have a huge effect on everyone’s emotions
The super blood moon on Wednesday night is going to lead to some emotional highs and lows, according to a leading intuitive astrologer.
Rose Smith says while the May 26 ‘flower super moon’, which is coupled with a rare total lunar eclipse, is likely to be breathtaking for spectators it will also have a huge effect on everyone’s emotions.
Ms Smith said the combination of the two rare lunar events are bound to bring withheld emotions to the front of your mind.
‘Full moons ordinarily can bring out the ‘crazy’ in people, but we can expect people doing crazier things than usual – and this can be attributed to pent up emotional tension.
‘People should be trying to release this tension around the Super Blood Moon in healthy ways, sitting with their feelings and endeavouring not to deny them,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.
The emotional impact of the flower super moon will be especially powerful for women, she said, because women are more likely to ‘hold onto’ their emotions.
‘As the total lunar eclipse and Blood Super Moon are in Sagittarius, it could be a particularly emotional time for fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius,’ she said.
‘On the other hand, water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are looking fortunate, with more balance coming into their lives. They could be feeling divinely inspired.’
There hasn’t been a total lunar eclipse since January 2019.
What is so special about the May 26 full moon and where can I see it?
The May 26 super moon is special because it will be the biggest, brightest full moon of the year.
There is also a total solar eclipse occurring on the same night.
This is the first total solar eclipse since January 2019. it is the only total solar eclipse this year.
A solar eclipse happens when the moon moves into the earth’s shadow, causing it to gradually turn a reddish brown colour.
The eclipse event will go for just 14 minutes.
Stargazers in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland will see the show from 9.11pm.
In South Australia it will begin at 8.41pm and in Western Australia it will begin at 7.11pm.
This is the second super moon of the year, which in itself is a rare phenomenon as they usually occur 12-14 months apart.
Stargazers can see the event at different times this Wednesday, May 26,depending on their location. In new South Wales, Queensland and Victoria it will start at 9.11pm.
People in South Australia will be able to witness the eclipse at 8.41pm and in Western Australia it will begin at 7.11pm.
The moon will be 7percent bigger than a typical full moon – with moonrise being the best time to see it at its biggest due to an optical illusion when it is close to the horizon.
The moon will be the brightest full moon of the year because it is the closest full moon to the earth this year, 158 kilometres closer to earth than April’s pink super moon.

Ms Smith said there are other astrological influences to consider moving into June, with Mercury being in retrograde from May 29 until June 22.
There is also a solar eclipse on June 10. Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune are also going into retrograde.
What does the May 26 Lunar eclipse mean for my star sign?
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
The super moon is encouraging you to broaden your horizons by making your life larger in some way. Perhaps you’re thinking about studying or travel. Your spiritual journey could also take the driver’s seat in your life now and you may be a little surprised about your spiritual side.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
Issues may arise about shared resources and other people’s money. Taxes, superannuation, inheritances and joint assets might be on your mind. There might also be a strong desire for union and deeper intimacy with another person. Relationships can be rejuvenated now.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
Important connections such as a marriage or business partner might be on your mind. Transformation comes with issues that need to be dealt with in close relationships. There might also be some legalities or problems with someone you don’t see eye to eye with. It’s time to sort out these issues.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
Your everyday habits or work changes in some way. Daily life could get a bit of a shakeup, but this is needed to get you thinking about how to improve your life. Your health or wellbeing could also be affected which could prompt you to take better care of yourself. Change your diet and your exercise regime.
Leo (July 23 to August 22)
Your creativity gets a shake up and you realise just how brilliant you can be. Even if you suffer from writer’s block or it feels like your creative well has run dry, this is happening to get you to focus on your inner life. You may also have more dealings with children or your own inner child. Your romantic life could also change and this is probably overdue.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22)
There is transformation around your home or your family. Do ensure you attend to any necessary repairs before they get worse. But there could be a silver lining here because you may improve your home in the process of rectifying faults. Regarding your family, change is likely, perhaps children leave home or changes take place in some way.
Libra (September 23 to October 22)
There could be changes in your local area which somehow affect you. Perhaps there are things like road works or additional traffic. You may be thinking of studying or running lots of errands around your local community. Issues could also arise with siblings or distant family members. With Mercury retrograde, the lunar eclipse and the super moon, you’re really quite likely to have issues with miscommunication, technology and delays around travel. Back up all your devices.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
There’s transformation around your money, especially the money you earn. It’s time to protect and secure your possessions. You may also experience changes around other things you value, perhaps your belief systems. Watch you don’t overspend or waste money on a whim. Buy practical things you need.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
It’s all about you. It’s time to re-examine what you believe, especially about you. What do you really want in life? You may be more perceptive than usual and get some extraordinary insight into your life, even if your thoughts are a little cloudy at the moment. Take some time out, especially if your emotions are all over the shop.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19)
You may feel more sensitive than usual and unusually intuitive. Right now, you probably need more quiet time alone so you can reflect on your life. Transformational changes from deep down emerge now so it’s a great time to meditate and watch your dreams as you are changing.
Aquarius (January 20th to February 18)
You may need a deeper sense of community and connection with others now. Group efforts and community events, especially with women are likely. Your friends, groups and connections are transforming so let go of the past and embrace the future. New people are entering your life.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
There’s transformation in your career zone and if you’re not enjoying work that makes your heart sing you may consider leaving and finding another job. Your reputation and social status is also changing, so do be careful not to overshare online, especially if you’re looking for work. If you stay in the same job, it might be changing – there could be some sort of shakeup regarding procedures or administration.
Gemini, Libra and Aquarius will be most effected by Mercury going into retrograde, Ms Smith warns people who fall under those signs will need to have a good handle on their emotions.
‘Mercury retrogrades are about miscommunications and misunderstandings in relationships and problems with technology – so back up your devices for one,’ she suggested.
‘Relationships can also be testing – treat each situation anew. Don’t let the weight of previous relationships overly influence you, thinking you know what the other person is going to do or say. It’s important to give the other person room to move.’

She said contracts or important decisions made in that period could need to be changed later.
Ms Smith said the solar eclipse in Gemini – which is an air sign – is all about masculine principles.
‘Women have inner masculine forces and it’s time to be more proactive, independent and externally focused so they can get more of what they want in the world,’ Ms Smith said.
What are Roses’ tips for getting through the blood moon and retrograde period?
1 – Become aware of how you are feeling: be mindful of what you are feeling, feelings are every bit as valid as what we are thinking.
2 – Stop looking back at the past or into the future: not being present in your body or with your feelings is a problem. Be truly present and at home in your body now.
3 – Be mindful of what you are doing one step at a time and be aware of distractions: people don’t think about feelings as they are distracted by life and thinking about what they are doing in the future rather than how they feel about certain things in the present.
4 – Slow down: especially if living in a big city. Get out into the country into nature or have a picnic under the trees.
5 – Write down your feelings and emotions in a diary or journal: particularly if you don’t feel like you can talk to someone trusted.
