This week we experience the last eclipse this Eclipse Season. It is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on January 21 at 12:16 AM EST.
Full Moons, whether Lunar Eclipse or not, always have the Sun exactly opposite the Moon. In this case the Sun is in Aquarius and the Moon in Leo.
Actually the Sun will have just moved into Aquarius on Sunday the 20th, as the Moon moves into Leo several hours later.
When they meet up in opposition, they will be in the very early portion of Leo and Aquarius.
The Sun will be at less than 1 degree of Aquarius, and the Moon at less than 1 degree of Leo.
The greater world is reflecting this opposition very well this week, as Leo is the “royal” leader, and Aquarius is the people or the body that is supposed to represent the people, in this case the USA Congress.
Executive branch of government is Leo, legislative branch is more Aquarius.
Trump versus Pelosi and Schumer is a perfect representation of this Leo/Aquarius opposition.
Remember that a Lunar Eclipse is probably 10 times or more potent than a normal Full Moon.
So that is why this standoff with Trump and Pelosi is so intense and so important on a very deep level of collective consciousness.
Something is bound to breakdown or breakthrough on this tug-of-war. Something will happen to shift everything in a new way.
That is likely just because this is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, but also because this Full Moon in Leo creates a T-Square with Uranus in Aries.
And Uranus is the planet of breakthroughs, awakenings, inventiveness, and liberation.
Yes our world is holding together by mere threads of connection. The Mueller investigation is also part of this eclipse and t-square, and so something is on the verge of breaking open in that case as well.
And the stock market, which had been falling rapidly, rebounded with the Bulls this last week. But this will be short lived and more falling will follow some time after the Eclipse.
A Total Lunar Eclipse, as this one is, should be seen in the light of turning points. And maybe great events will occur close to the Eclipse Date, but often events do not show up for 3-6 months later, events that are directly associated with the Eclipse.
So look deeply for signs that show you exactly what the turning point is in our world and in your personal life. Pay special attention to dreams, which might be especially intense and revealing now.
In the greater world, are there signs around the eclipse date, that show we are truly moving toward impeachment? Are there signs the economy will enter a recession or depression before too long? Is the government standoff for a wall showing the winds are changing in some way between the Royal President and the power of the people.
Trump is as close to identifying with presidential royalty or dictator as I have witnessed before in the USA . And Congress is more deaf to the needs of the people than it has ever been. Now it mostly answers to special interests and big money corporations.
The Empire certainly rivals the Roman Empire that began the Age of Pisces, which is soon ending for the Age of Aquarius.
Can we return to our Aquarian principles of people power, equality, and freedom; or do we continue our slow journey into rule and privilege by the few.
America began when Uranus (the ruling planet of Aquarius) was being discovered (1781). The USA natal Moon from its July 4, 1776 inception is in Aquarius.
We used to be a model for the Age of Aquarius and its Diversity within Unity paradigm.
Can we return to those principles and be a beacon of light for the world, and not a Superpower Empire ?
This Aquarius/Leo Lunar Eclipse is a turning point in the greater world and in personal lives.
How about in your life? So many people have been up and down and all around lately. Much breaking down, much lighting up, feeling the depth of change in life now.
What more do you need to release? What will be baggage in your new chapter and has to go?
What are you seeing and feeling that is coming into your life now? Can you embrace it with confidence yet?
The ego wants to control and hold on, as change comes swirling in. Unclasp your arms, let go and release. Surrender now and move forward and evolve.
Your consciousness wants to expand and grow, learn new ways of being.
Are any of your current relationships keeping you locked up and unable to move forward? Can you change those patterns? Do you need to consider more drastic options?
Are you keeping anything, including job or where you live, just because you are having a difficult time letting go of your security blankets? You can start by releasing old attitudes and beliefs that limit you.
Let this Lunar Eclipse Full Moon serve as a turning point for you, as you open to the change that is aligned with your best interests, your authentic self and life, your sense of purpose.
This week is complicated, in part because we are experiencing a Lunar Eclipse Full moon that is part of an intensified T-square with Uranus. That alone is a real shake-up pattern.
But in addition Venus in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces on Sunday January 20. This is such an idealistic combination that represents higher ideals but maybe also romanticized ideas. It can also mean more confusion in regards to matters of the heart.
On Monday the 21st Mars squares Saturn, putting lights on red/stop and go/green at the same time. So while the Eclipse is a sign of movement and breaking open, Mars square gravity pulling Saturn says no you need to stop or at least wait.
Mars is in Aries, where it is at its strongest. Saturn is in Capricorn where it is most strong. This is like putting one foot on the gas and one on the breaks at the same time.
Best to hold back and wait till the best time later.
There is war sprouting up in the Middle East now, but it may hold off for a little bit with this Mars/Saturn aspect. Not sure how long.
That which has seemingly been settled may show events or signs that make you pause, further evaluate and process before moving forward, which would happen at the Aquarius New Moon on February 4, a new moon that effectively ends Winter Eclipse Season 2019.
In-between seasons sacred Imbolc is on February 2, then the New Moon on the 4th that may have strong new beginnings that are a direct effect of this Eclipse Season. Chinese New Year happens then also.
Back to this week, on Tuesday the 22nd, Venus in Sagittarius is conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius. Then on Friday the 25th Mars in Aries trines Jupiter in Sagittarius.
This is back to the green light of going forward.
So ups and downs, stops and go may be a theme this week. Could go from manic or impulsive to a hard stop and back again
Do your best not be impulsive on the one hand, nor judgmental defeatist on the other hand.
I’d say put your seat belt on all week, not just on the Lunar Eclipse Day.
It is time to break out and break open. It is also time to stop and let go.
