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 SunEarth 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 increases. 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 personal Natal 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 Sunday,  January 20, 2019.  This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse will occur as the Moon passes in front of the constellation of Leo at 0°52’.  At exactly at 5:12am the Earth will be situated opposite the Moon as the Earth moves through the constellation of Aquarius at 0°52’ blocking the light of the Sun to the Moon as all three – the SunMoon 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 eclipse just allow it to mold and shape your life – which an Eclipse will do!! The effects are usually very positive!!  (I got married on 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 as 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 personality 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. Enjoy this process as a metamorphosis occurs in just about every aspect of your life!
Read on to see how this eclipse will affect you personally!!
ARIES: Major growth is the theme-do you want to stick with tried-and-true results, or do you dig deeper into your core to find the raw material necessary to transmute long-standing emotional blockages into a brand new outlook on life. Break down walls you use to protect yourself!!
TAURUS: You are on notice that sticking to old thought patterns and rigid attitudes leads to a sense of isolation that will only be amplified by this Eclipse. It is truly time to abandon lifestyle patterns that are hindering your growth and not bringing you any satisfaction. Open your heart.

CANCER: Begin to take better care of yourself, do what you want to do. Stepping into unfamiliar water promises two things: deeper under- standing of who you are and an abundance of life-affirming experiences that will affect the rest of your life. Obstacles are stepping stones!!
LEO: WOW!! That’s all there is to say about this Eclipse in Leo – WOW! This Eclipse at the very beginning of Leo-and the last Leo Eclipse in this series forcing you to reconnect with the true source of your confidence, your capacity to love and your commitment to being the best per- son you can be. Once you tune into the core of who you are there will be some surprising doors opening as you seek meaningful ways to serve!!
VIRGO: There isn’t a person on the pant who can be harder on you than you are on yourself.  This Eclipse gives you a chance to enroll and participate in the school of self-appreciation, strip away any automatic, self-critical response and look at yourself with new, enhanced eyes!!
LIBRA:  You are at a crossroads that allows you to redefine the steps to the dance we call life. Your life springs from within you and if you don’t honor and respect that, you diminish yourself. So love yourself. Embrace the approach that gives you the fortitude to nourish/nurture yourself.
SCORPIO: Your growth continues as you embrace a level of vulnerability that feels like foreign territory to you. You are reaching beyond the rigid boundaries you’ve set for yourself in how you think and communicate so you can speak from your deep-feeling nature and your heart.
SAGITTARIUS: Embrace life at its’ core as this Eclipse gives you a huge boost in rekindling your love of life and all the experiences yet to come. You realize your journey is nowhere near done and you choose to stop all the negativity that is taking up so much oxygen in your life. 🙂
CAPRICORN: It’s time to stop sucking it up and always doing what needs to be done without any consideration for the toll it takes on your well-being. You are getting an opportunity to begin the process of running your own life. Have a party! Invite only those who are in your corner.
AQUARIUS: You are suddenly confronted with a major bout of awareness over whether or not you can ever move past some of the most difficult aspects of your life. This eclipse prepares you to open your heart & mind to the possibility of more loving, fun relationships with others.
PISCES:  Love yourself as unconditionally as you do everyone else is the message Nourish yourself and accept that what makes you original and special in your ability to see beyond the physical-dream larger than life. Follow your innate awareness and you will get where you want to go.
