On January 20-21, the total lunar eclipse in Leo will be visible in North and South American, Hawaii, and parts of Europe.
Full moons typically bring news, harvest, culmination. Because the moon represents our inner lives – emotions, intuition, are most intimate relationships- full moons can illuminate the dark pockets of these relationships and create tension and mood swings. With this eclipse, there’s a Mars/Saturn square. Mars is the warrior, Saturn is the disciplinarian, the authority figure, and squares create tension. Troubling news of some kind may arrive. Don’t panic. Just ride the tide and let things shake out.
Be measured in your communication with others. If someone pushes your buttons, just laugh. Laughter mitigates tension.
That said, though, Jupiter and Venus in Sagittarius are conjunct, commiserating, expanding artistic talents, and our larger view of the world and the the reality we create day to ay through the choices we make and the thoughts we think.
This lunar eclipse is conjunct within 4 degrees of the North Node in Cancer and generally, eclipses close to the North Node like this tend to be positive overall. My advice? Find a comfortable spot in your house – or outside if you live in a temperate climate – around 11:30 pm on January 20 and watch the moon as that shadow moves across it for the total eclipse at 12:12 a.m. on January 21. Some sites are placing the full eclipse at 12:16. But whether it’s 12:12 or 12:16, we won’t be able to see another total eclipse in North America until May 26, 2021.
