    Lunar Eclipses are high-energy Full Moons and they signal a time of dramatic culmination and fulfillment. Every month the Moon travels in her orbit completely around the Earth. The Moon swings through the Earth’s shadow approximately every six months. This is a Lunar Eclipse.  A Lunar Eclipse occurs only when the Sun, Earth and Moon are aligned with the Earth in the middle, when the Moon is on the far side of the Earth from the Sun and when the light of the Sun is blocked to the Moon by the Earth. Unlike a Solar Eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse can be observed from nearly an entire hemisphere.  Unlike Solar Eclipses, Lunar Eclipses are completely safe to watch. Protective filters are not necessary and neither is a telescope.  A Lunar Eclipse can be observed with nothing more than the naked eye.  A pair of binoculars will magnify the view making the red coloration bright and easier to see.
     Life tends to speed up near eclipses and awareness increase. One quality that distinguishes eclipse influence from that of general planetary activity is the sharp way in which it begins and the equally abrupt manner in which the period of intensification ends.  Where an eclipse falls in your chart will determine the part of your life affected. Since this Eclipse is in Leo, find out where Leo is in your chart and you will know where to expect change and transformation.  And, remember – ALL change and transformation is good!
     This Lunar Eclipse occurs on Wednesday,  January 31, 2018.  This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse will occur as the Moon passes in front of the constellation of Leo at 11°37’.  At exactly at 1:31pm the Earth will be situated opposite the Moon as it moves through the Constellation of Aquarius at 11°37’ blocking the light of the Sun to the Moon as all three – the Sun, Moon and Earth fall in direct alignment.
     Earthlings tend to be more emotionally expressive during a Full Moon!  A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse emphasizes this emotional reaction  When you embrace the energy of an eclipsed allow it to mold and shape your life (which an Eclipse will do!!), the effects are usually very positive!!  (I got married soon an eclipse!)  when you resist an Eclipse and the changes it brings, havoc over your life can occur.  Psychic sensitivity, spiritual instincts and emotional connectedness are aroused as the environment becomes a little unstable. This unstable environment occurs because there is a change in the electromagnetic energy that affects us mentally and neurologically.  There will be some stress as blockages begin to crumble and are followed by a feeling of freedom.  the good news is that creative and artistic qualities will be discovered a you let go of beliefs that don’t correspond with your current reality!!  Outdated ideals or dreams may need to be discarded which can be painful but necessary!! You experience an awakening to today’s truths as the clutter is cleared away and the present is seen in a new light! You redefine your personalty and your image,  A new hairdo and new clothes may result!!  Once you get past this Eclipse, new vistas of life open up as projects involving personal transformation unfold.
Read on to see how this eclipse will affect you personally!!
ARIES: If you have been working on an artistic project or planning on a new career course, you may finally feel that you’ve mastered it – so much so that you are ready to take you show on the road and turn it into at last  part-time financial venture. You may want to take on a partner.
TAURUS: A child or family member may reveal something you’d never, ever expected in a million years-or you may uncover a family-oriented secret that few are privy to. Either way, the stage has been set for drama! Buckle up!! Remember Eclipses amp up the volume in our lives! Wow!
GEMINI: If you are single be prepared to be swept off your feet by a charming new admirer. If you are already seeing someone your connection will intensify in a wonderfully romantic and surprising way. On the other hand, if you are ready to end with someone, don’t hesitate.
CANCER: Personal finances and valued possessions are an issue. You may be taken off guard by something tossed your way via someone you thought you could trust. At this time, your mission is to decide what is truly important. This eclipse is marking a truly unpredictable year for you.
LEO: THIS ECLIPSE IS VERY STRONG FOR YOU!! That is because this Eclipse is in LEO!! You are urged to take a good, long look at yourself and make some much-needed changes-in rapid-fire fashion. You’ve been slowly and silently mulling over these changes for a while, so whatever you suddenly decide to begin-or end-you’ll feel just fine with it. Those close to you aren’t inside your head so they may be startled!!
VIRGO: This Eclipse will bring you news of something that has been kept from you. Remember, what is hidden comes to light at an Eclipse and this one will certainly bring you news that you need to know. If you are carrying on behind closed doors, your activities will become known.
LIBRA: Romance is highlighted and if you have been flirting with someone you usually only see in the company of others, it may be time to lure them away to share a private conversation. If you are happily settled with someone, you may consider taking on a partner for a pet project.
SCORPIO: If you have been operating behind the scenes (as you usually like to do) be prepared to be recognized and don’t shy away. Even though you are not fond of the spotlight, it’s your turn to shine.  Expect drama in the form of an ending and fulfillment with a new beginning.
SAGITTARIUS: Look for your opinions and beliefs on many important topics such as politics and spirituality to shift dramatically.  Don’t be surprised and don’t beat yourself up about it either. You have every right to evolve at your own pace and that is exactly what is happening.
CAPRICORN: A crisis is possible as you may need to cut a person or situation out of your life. And, you won’t hesitate. You handle it with dignity and manage to keep your pride intact. Once you have adjusted, you won’t look back much less feel any regret! The future is bright!
AQUARIUS: Preparing yourself for some extremely unexpected news from your loved one is to be expected as your very sharp antennae is keen to what is really happening. Your mission is to have a strategy in place to cope with it, handle it and make the best of it. Solutions abound!
PISCES: If you have been thinking of dieting or ditching a bad habit once and for all, wait no longer. You’ll have all the inspiration anyone ever needed to get the job done. So, set new goals with this very determined energy – you wont quit until you’ve accomplished your aims. 🙂
