January, 2019, is the month for two Eclipses. The first was January 5th in the house ruled by Capricorn. Coming up is the Super Blood Moon. It is also a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. It will happen on January 20th or 21st, depending on your time zone. It is in the house rluled by Leo and is expected to be one "Looney" eclipse.
This moon is called "Super" because it is closer to the Earth in it's orbit than usual, making it appear larger than usual. It will be a "Blood Moon" because it's being accompanied by a total Lunar Eclipse. As the Moon passes directly behind the Earth, it becomes illuminated by sunlight that's filtered and refracted by Earth;s atmosphere, making it appear to glow a deep orangey-red.
And if you find yourself feeling like howling at it, (the way my dear Casey dog, the walker hound, use to do so often), it's because the first full Moon in January of each year is called a "Wolf Moon." It will last for about 4 hours shortly after the midnight period.
In Astrology, the big "Looney" part is that Uranus is in Taurus and is squaring the Moon. With Uranus, we have unusual and out-of-the-blue events that happen beyond our control. SO look for friendships to be surprising, work might offer some new opportunities, and families may go in new directions for all concerned. The effects of the Eclipse will ast several weeks, if not months for some.
We are all going to feel a little unsettled. But these Eclipses are for a reason in our consciousness. We all need to move on from places we are stuck. Whether you are stuck in a relationship that no longer serves you, whether your job is simply a "job" and doesn't excite you anymore, or whether your life needs some "uplifting" all around with new places, new friends, and new experiences, an Eclipse will bring it to you now, whether you are ready or not.
So look for this following SUnday and Monday to be game changers. I just don't mean in football. Your attitude about the decisions you will be forced to make, makes all the digfgerence. If you refuse to "go with the flow", this will be a hard time for you. If you tell the Universe to "bring it on", that you are ready for a new adventure, then you will be inviting the Universe to show you a new, and possibly, exciting path that you would have never dreamed of finding, but someehow you are now there.
I look at the relationship of Eclipses, and actually all of astrology, as energy that is given to each of from the skies to complete the path we chose as souls to master in our present lives. The booster rockets that are given to us, through energies from the skies, are to make us braver to step into new territory that we came to discover in this present lifetime. We, as souls, are always challenging ourselves to take gibber leaps of faith to accomplish more than we have in the past. We know that we are strong enough because of all the experience we have already had in past lives!!!!!
Enjoy the ride, whatever it brings you on the 20th-21st. You can handle it well, I just know it!
Just remember to Lean In, Breath through the Turns and Be Brave. Good Advice when Skiing, but it Applies to Much More.....
