Feeling grumpy today?

Maybe think twice before picking a fight or grumbling at your other half today.

Or, if they’re the one being snappier than usual, just blame the moon.

An astrologer is warning that the recent super flower blood moon could cause relationships to end.

“It’s not you, it’s the moon”, would certainly be a different break-up excuse.

The rare celestial event happened in the early hours of this morning.

So what is a super flower blood moon?

It’s when a super flower moon and a lunar eclipse combine.

This pairing made the moon appear very close, but it also appeared orange and red.

As well as being beautiful to look at (and photograph badly on your iPhone), astrologers are warning it can cause havoc.

So much so in fact, that they warn it could cause relationships to end.

Australian astrologer and spiritual adviser Rose Smith told news.com.au: “A lot of relationships are going to break-up in this period – all signs, everybody will be affected – but fire signs will bear the brunt of it.

“There’s going to be a great push for Sagittarians and other fire signs to get rid of toxic situations and relationships.”

The fact the moon appeared red due to the lunar eclipse, apparently means it affected fire signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius most.

 “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.

“Especially women, generally speaking, traditionally we hold in emotion and make excuses for other people.”


According to Rose, women would be more ’emotional’ because of the moon’s movements. It will cause a lot of tension.

It’s not just fire signs feeling the heat, Rose says every astrological sign was impacted by the super moon.
However, the three water signs (the opposite to the fire signs) of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces will have fared better.
Another thing worth noting that Rose says could make relationships more fraught: Mercury will be in retrograde from May 29 to June 22.


That can be a classic time for things to go wrong. Not only that, but we have a solar eclipse on June 10. Then Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune go into retrograde.
“Mercury retrogrades are about miscommunications and misunderstandings in relationships and problems with technology – so back up your devices for one,” Rose said.

“Relationships can also be tested – 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.”

Are you feeling the pressure?
