On January 31st we are about to experience an incredible phenomenon – the second full moon in the month of January, and the third supermoon in a series of three back to back supermoons, this is a sight that you don’t want to miss. The January 31st full moon will be the first of two blue moons in 2018, AND above all else, it is also a lunar eclipse! For those of us in North and South America, this is the first Blue Moon total eclipse in 150 years, bringing with it a unique energy.
But what does this energy mean for you?
With the full moon in Leo, opposing the sun in Aquarius, the energies that we will experience will impact our love, health, beauty and the arts. It won’t be overly in your face; however, the calm and subtle influence of this energy can have a strong influence in your life if you are open to it. For most of the Zodiac signs, this influence will be highly motivating, pushing you to greater heights, continuing to inspire and push you right through to the next total lunar eclipse on July 27th, 2018. For some, however, this is a time of stress. In order to adequately prepare yourself, and use this energy to your full advantage, it is important to learn just what to expect.
What do you need to know about the Super Blue Moon Total Eclipse according to your Zodiac sign?
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You will feel a great deal of stress in the area of your finances, causing you to question many of the decision that you have made, or will need to make in the near future. Try not to get in your head – While you are feeling a great deal of concern regarding this area in your life, the truth is that the energies of this lunar eclipse will empower you to make great financial choices. You simply have to trust yourself.
You will also find that problems and concerns in your relationships will be highlighted in ways that you may have never seen before. For some relationships, this revelation will lead to their demise, and in these cases, know that you are much better off cutting ties. For other relationships, this will force you to deal with these problems head-on. Ultimately those relationships that survive will be stronger than ever before.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Hardworking and career-focused, the impact of the lunar eclipse is going to largely be felt in the area of your career. You will be faced with a number of important decision in the coming months regarding your current career path or the business that you own. These situations will require quick and prompt attention, so try not to put them aside. At times you are going to feel as though you are putting out daily fires but know that you have the ability to not only handle this but to excel.
The biggest challenge you are going to experience over the coming months is the demand for your attention. While you want to focus on your career, you will feel as though you are being pulled in 20 different directions. Family, home, neighborhood, recreational commitments and more will continue to get you and your career efforts, slowly down the progress you were hoping to make during this time. Not all of these distractions are going to be negative – you may be celebrating a family member’s new baby or helping a friend move into their new house, but they will be a considerable demand on your time and attention. Try to remember that this is temporary.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
At times during the coming months, you are going to feel as though everything is ‘falling apart’ around you. Friends and family are going to face considerable difficulties and will be turning to you for support and encouragement. Often, they will need nothing more than an attentive listening and a shoulder to cry on. Try not to allow yourself to take on their pain as it will quickly overwhelm you. At the same time, you are going to experience some major failings in technology. If you haven’t already backed up your computers and cellphones, ensure that you do so before the lunar eclipse!
Finances are a weak point for you, often failing to stick to your own budget. This is going to be highlighted during this period of time, forcing you to address your own shortfalls. Take the time to sit down and record all of your expenses, nothing is too small. Looking at this, highlight the areas in which you are currently overspending (do you really need to go out for lunch every day?) and take steps to cut back. It will be uncomfortable and challenging, but you will thank yourself for it in the long-run.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
The lunar eclipse is going to bring on a stage of considerable personal growth, allowing you to make big changes in your life. Be warned, however, if you do try to resist the coming changes they WILL happen, it will just be considerably more difficult than it would have been if you just embraced it. Begin by assessing the areas of your past that you will need to let go of in order to move forward. This may include past mistakes, regrets, events or times that you have been hurt. Cutting the ties to these negative energies will empower you to move forward with a better and happier individual. If there are areas of your life that you have wanted to work on, such as returning to school or making a change in your life, now is the time to do it. This energy will boost any and all attempts to better yourself overall.
Understand that this may bring about some incredibly difficult, challenging and unpleasant times. In order to recognize and move past the parts of your life that are holding you back, they must first be revealed to you. Acknowledging your weaknesses and mistakes is never easy, but by doing so you will be able to rise to greater heights.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
During the days, weeks and months following the lunar eclipse you may be experiencing some challenges in the area of your health. Try not to stress too much as they are likely minor challenges that appear to be much larger at first glance. Focus your time and attention on taking the best care of yourself possible, ensuring that you are eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly and getting plenty of rest. With all of these areas properly balanced you will come through this without any major or long-term problems. There is also a chance that this energy won’t impact your health, but instead that of your spouse. Make it a goal in your relationship to make these healthy life choices together.
You are going to find yourself questioning many of the choices, decisions, and beliefs in your life in regard to your spiritual journey. There are people you once looked up, viewing them as teachers or mentors in this area of your life. Recent developments have you questioning their influence, leading you to walk away and take a different path. It won’t be easy but follow your heart.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Of all of the signs, you are going to be the one that experiences the energy from the lunar eclipse the least. In fact, many people born under the sign Virgo won’t notice any impact on their lives at all. While this is good news for you and your own life, it may spell trouble for your relationships. Try to remind yourself that others may be going through significant changes or heightened stress. Exercise patience with your friends, family and loved ones, taking whatever steps, you can to show them support throughout the coming months.
If you are a spiritual individual or work in a spiritual line of work, you may find yourself questioning your beliefs and the path that you are currently on. This isn’t to say that your current beliefs are wrong. Allow yourself to explore these questions, what you discover will either strengthen your current beliefs or steer you in a different direction altogether.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
The biggest impact that you are going to see in your life during this time is going to be in the gadgets and technology in your life. If you don’t already have a savings put aside you may want to start saving up, as this period of time may be a costly one. Electronics may fail you, your internet is likely to malfunction, and you may deal with some significant tech problems. Before the lunar eclipse hits take the time to update your antivirus, firewall and spyware detectors as you are definitely going to need the best protection available. If you have considered purchasing new tech for your home or business, avoid doing so during this time. If you are forced into purchasing something now, ensure that there is a good return policy in place.
Your friendships may come under fire during this time, being tested in ways that you haven’t experienced previously. Understand that the friendships that don’t survive failed for a reason and you are better off without them despite the fact it will cause you pain to go your separate ways. Your true friends will rise above this time of trial with your friendship stronger and deeper than before. These are the people who will be by your side through thick and thin, so don’t take them for granted.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
The lunar eclipse is going to demand change and correction in your life, and you are going to feel this most in the area of your career. If you are working for someone else, you may suddenly find yourself aware of a growing list of reasons why you are no longer happy with your current employment. During this time, you may feel the call to walk away and seek out new employment, or in some cases, a change of employment may be forced upon you. Rest assured that this is in line with the energy of the eclipse and is happening for a reason. A better and more fulfilling career is just around the corner for you.
If you are a business owner or are a freelance worker you are going to feel as though the passion for your career and business choices are called into question. This time is going to push you in ways you have never been tested before. For some, this will push you to change your path altogether. Others, however, will find themselves more convinced than ever that they are headed in the right direction. Pay attention to little changes and corrections that will allow you to see greater success.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Always the adventurer, take this period of time to slow down and stick around home. It is best that you avoid unnecessary travel during this time as you will face unnecessary challenges and difficulties in that area. From missed and canceled flights to vehicle breakdowns and overbooked hotels, it’s going to be one problem after another. Choose, instead, to hold off on any vacations until after the July total eclipse when this energy shifts back to positivity and success.
You are going to feel the influence and idea of death prevailing in your life. This doesn’t mean that you are going to die in the coming months, however, you very well may have a close call which will open your eyes! This is going to inspire you to make changes in your life, preparing for the worst. As a free spirit you don’t always plan ahead, so embrace this while you feel the call to do so! You may also feel as though there are things inside you that are dying. It’s not a comfortable or happy feeling but knows that this is making room for new things to take their place. This may result in some significant changes. For example, you may feel the need to step back from hobbies that were once your passion to follow a different path. You may also question the church or religious institution you are attending, or even your religion altogether.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
The key word for you throughout this time is going to be safe. If you are taking any unnecessary risks, this is certainly not the time! Avoid any dangerous sports or hobbies, slow down and pay extra attention to your driving and do your best to eliminate or moderate any drug use. Many of these may seem like common sense points, but they will be more important than ever during this time! This carries through areas of your life that you may not consider, such as your spirituality. If you have been dabbling with high-risk practices such as spirit summoning or astral traveling, it may be best to put your efforts on hold until after the July lunar eclipse
There is also a heightened sexual energy for you during this time. Pay extra attention to the care and well being of your genitals, and your sexual system as a whole. You may find yourself tempted to take risks in your sex life, but don’t forget that keyword – safety! If you are currently trying to keep any of your sexual experiences secret, you may want to take even more care and consideration to avoid being discovered. You may also find that, during this, relationships that were once seen as nothing more than sexual in nature begin to evolve into something more. Just remember, play it safe with your heart.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
This is going to be a challenging time in the area of relationships. If you are currently single, and not by choice, it is time to step back and assess why this may be happening. If you are in a relationship you are going to find every hurt, suppressed feeling and problem, even those that you believe to be insignificant, brought forward front and center. This is going to put a lot of stress on your relationship, pushing you and your partner out of your comfort zone. Rest assured that any relationship with a solid foundation will survive this time, and working through these problems will make them stronger, healthier and happier than ever before. You will look back at this time of trial with a smile on your face as you will both see how much closer it will bring you in the end.
This is also a time to pay attention to your health. You may find as though there are some minor or seemingly unimportant situations that come up, however, don’t allow yourself to shrug these off. If you exercise proper care, including sleeping better, improving your diet, getting exercise and seeking medical attention as needed, you will come out of this time feeling better than ever. Don’t underestimate the importance of prioritizing your self-care.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
On the health front, this is a time of self-improvement. You may previously have been lax in how you care for yourself, allowing poor habits to continue simply due to the fact you don’t care enough to step out of your comfort zone to fix them. This is the time to make the necessary changes to a healthier, happier and better you. Pay careful attention to your diet, recording what you are eating and how often. Swap out unhealthy snacks for healthier options, prioritize portion control and avoid eating out of boredom. It is also important to not only assess what you eat, but what you are drinking? Sugary drinks can be just as dangerous to your health as sugary snacks!
You may experience some big changes in your career including a new job, big changes in your business or the move into a new industry. Rest assured that your finances are not going to suffer any major hits, so any changes will still allow you to stay financially stable even if they may not feel like it at first. This will not be the case, however, for friends and family. Dealing with struggles and challenges they are going to come to you for support. Resist the urge to give them a handout, instead, help them to learn how to change their habits and improve their financial decision moving forward.
