The Harvest Full (Blood) Moon rises on the near-horizon — September 27-28, 2015, depending on where in this amazing world you are.

I mentioned it in my earlier post on “Catastrophobia* and Nattering Nabobs of Negativity,” since the Blood Moon and Eclipse stirs up deep-rooted catastrophobia* and fears (and of course those who just enjoy and benefit from provoking the whole fear-stirring thing!).

You’ll find Harvest Blood Moon Eclipse links to more grounded information at and other sites in the Catastrophobia and Nattering Nabobs of Negativity post.

In the meanwhile … this full moon and lunar eclipse rises just after the Equinox, and along with it, Hissy Fit and Tantrum Potentials.

This full moon in Aries holds the potential for the less-wise fiery and often epic ‘tantrum yoga’ and hissy fits associated with Aries (if not tempered by Venusian wisdom and grace, as was the impetuous Mars in the lore of old).

As always, we do have some choice in how we direct and express this potentially wild, fiery life-force, or Shakti-force.

In her article on this Full Moon Eclipse, my friend Molly Hall of Wild Bee Grove shares this lovely bit of insight from the Vision-Poet-Philsopher, John Keats:

“There is an electric fire in human nature tending to purify – so that among these human creatures there is continually some birth of new heroism.

The pity is that we must wonder at it, as we should at finding a pearl in rubbish.”

Ahhh, Keats; an electric fire … some birth of a new heroism…

Perhaps a new heroism of the wisened kind, born and tempered in The Hero’s Journey of those who’ve “answered the call” and entered the forest “they know not,” to “restore some part of the world’s lost heart” and then brave the epic challenge of The Return, to share that hard-won (and much-needed) Wisdom with the world that doesn’t yet realize it needs it badly.

We can always hope, pray, and dream that into the world, at least.

All in all, fiery full moons are good times to “Chill out and choose wisely, Grasshopper!”

And to be alert for those who leap full-fledged and, in typical raw-Aries style, without fore-thought, into the Tantrum Yoga and Hissy Fit Zone (Psychic Vomit Alert!).

You’ll find intel and remedies for that in the Resources for Empaths & Sensitives section here at Sophia’s Children, starting with:

Be(A)ware of Tantrums, Outbursts, Hissy Fits, and Offloads

You know the old saying: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Best to gestate and birth some new, fresh, wise, inspired, fiery-hearted (in the best of ways) heroism than to wreak havoc with the Hissy Fit thing.

The When Pulled in All Directions, Center is Up post might offer some timely medicine for you.

If it’s time for some Lantern-Holding, Believing Mirror, Vision-Stirring mentor-guidance for your own Transformation Journey, send along an email — info ‘at’ ivysea ‘dot’ com — to schedule a session (and check out the current specials, too).

In the meanwhile, may you gracefully stay cool, be wise, and enjoy the Electric-Fire Juice, Honey Bunny.

Big Love,


  • Catastrophobia is a term coined by Barbara Hand Clow (and it’s the name of her book as well).
