For All Signs: We are traveling in time toward an eclipse season. The first is the full moon eclipse in Leo which is exact at 8:27 am on Friday, Jan. 31. The next lunar eclipse is the new moon in Aquarius on Feb. 15, 2018. In ancient times eclipses were believed frightening, heralding negative omens, especially in regions of their visibility. Contemporary astrologers perceive these seasons as periods that relieve critical mass, similar to that of an earthquake. For many of us this month there will be an experience of manifestation or illumination about situations that have been long brewing. It is a time to face facts, but not all of those facts are frightening or negative. Some people experience very positive results of past effort during eclipse periods. Keep in mind that eclipse periods are “seasons” and not to be read strictly for the date given. See your Sun Sign below for clues about the meaning of these eclipses for you. If you know your Ascending sign, you may read for both signs.
Aries: The full moon eclipse is a good time to display your creative work. Bring it out to the open where others can enjoy it. It is also a good time to announce a pregnancy or a change in status of a relationship, such as an engagement. The new moon invites you to explore your contributions to the world, share abundance with others.
Taurus: The full moon side of this eclipse season may bring fresh news to light about someone in the family. For example, a pregnancy is announced. The new moon calls upon you to take steps toward beginning something new in your career, even if it feels like a risk. Start your research.
Gemini: The full moon brings to light whatever you need to know about relationships to siblings, roommates, neighbors. It also may bring attention to your vehicle in some way. A weird noise becomes a breakdown, for example. Meanwhile the new moon encourages new starts related to higher education, publishing, travel, and spiritual pursuits.
Cancer: The full moon eclipse emphasizes your financial circumstances and shines a light on your resources. This may include your skills, your abilities, and your sense of self worth. The new moon eclipse encourages you to learn more about the world of financial business and resources you share with others, i.e. spouse’s income.
Leo: The full moon eclipse may have brought you to the point of becoming firm about who you are and who you are not. An issue of identity and declaration of self is at hand. The new moon eclipse represents your inherent need to attend to relationships. Your partner may be starting something that affects both your lives.
Virgo: On this eclipsed full moon you may discover or reveal one or more secrets. Dreams and intuition are very strong. Issues of mental health are emphasized. The strength of the interplay between physical and emotional health is apparent. You likely will vow to change any health habits that are not useful.
Libra: The results of contributions you have made to your community become apparent. “Your community” may include organizations to which you belong, your friends, and various connections you have made along the way. A new beginning occurs in the arena of romance or life with children, the territory of play.
Scorpio: The full moon eclipse shines brightly in your career or the arena in which you contribute to the world. You may see the results of good works and/or the results of failure to produce. Meanwhile something deep within is searching for a sense of internal security. You may get in touch with family that you haven’t seen or spoken to for a long time.
Sagittarius: The outcome of legal, travel, educational and publishing interests become apparent in this eclipse season. Your work and preparation in any of these areas may be on display. Meanwhile fresh circumstances are beginning related to siblings, neighbors, roommates, or your next vehicle.
Capricorn: The outcome of your management of any joint resources becomes obvious. That may be issues of debt, partner’s income, insurance or stock holdings. Intimacy shared between you and partner becomes a topic. The condition of each of these things becomes reflected in your sense of self-worth and your desire to improve in the future.
Aquarius the Waterbearer: (Jan 19 — Feb 18) The activities of your partner are on display. You must recognize and respect his/her moment in the sun. Meanwhile new seeds inside of you are just sprouting that eventually will become a change in your sense of identity. If someone told you now what that would be, you’d be astounded.
Pisces: Circumstances at work may be in a state of flux, otherwise called a “zoo.” The state of your health is prominent. Good or bad depends upon how you have been caring for yourself. A new seed is planted in your unconscious that will begin to develop slowly into materialization in your life.
