So this week we experience the first of two eclipses this Winter Eclipse Season. It is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo, meaning the Sun is in Aquarius opposite the Moon in Leo. The Moon will be totally eclipsed by the shadow of the Earth.
And the totality will be seen in western USA but not in the east, which will see a partial eclipse.
Many are making a big deal about it being a blue moon, which means two full moons in the same month. The blue moon idea is man-made, however, because the calendar we use is man made- not connected to anything of nature.
This is also called a Super Moon, as it is so close to the Earth.
But what is truly important and not part of a manic hype, is the fact that this full moon is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon.
Lunar Eclipses at Full Moons, and all Solar Eclipses are New Moons. All New Moons have the Sun and Moon conjunct together. Full Moons all have the Sun exactly opposite the Moon, in this case Sun in Aquarius and Moon in Leo.
A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is a normal Full Moon, but on steroids, so much more intense, powerful, and important.
For a couple days before the event and a couple of days after, its energy and meaning are more important.
This Lunar Eclipse in on Wednesday January 31 at 8:27 AM EST. With the Sun in Aquarius and Moon in Leo, we have the power of the group (Aquarius) opposed by the power of the one (Leo).
The Women’s March and the confrontation of gymnastic doctor Nasser by 150 girls he sexually abused is part of that theme of the group versus “the one”.
Building a case against Trump, which will likely lead to an impeachment trial in Congress, will continue the theme during this Eclipse Season.
Our world is transforming and getting better, even as we are more and more made aware of what is so wrong in it. Only that awareness on a deeper soul level can get us ot face what we need to face so we can purge and progress.
Trump is not the end of the world. He is a catalyst from the Universe to shake things up, release what is toxic, and transform us into the Age of Aquarius.
So stop living in fear and stop focusing on the problem. Focus on what we can do to transform this world and make it better, in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.
The second eclipse is a Solar Eclipse in Aquarius, which will make the power of the group even stronger.
In these mentioned cases the group looks like the good guy and the one looks like the bad guy. That is not always the case. When Christ was crucified, for instance, the crowd looked worse than “the one”.
From another angle, Leo is the like fuel, and Aquarius that which receives and delivers the fuel. The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo and it is the shining fuel which shines the light and warmth to the group of planets and group of living things on those planets that revolve around the Sun.
In the American government system, the executive branch of the President is Leo and the legislative branch with the representatives and senators is Aquarius.
Also Leo is the energetic heart and Aquarius is the mind. Leo at its best follows its heart or intuition and Aquarius trusts its mind and mental principles.
So finding the balance between heart and mind is important at the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon.
And would you rather follow a strong leader (Leo) or a strong group? At its worst a Leo leader is a tyrant and at its worst the Aquarius group cannot agree on anything or get anything done.
Feel this week the shifting winds generated by the Lunar Eclipse. Allow these winds to circulate through your body, heart and soul. There is new love and truth swirling through those winds. It is a good time for breakthroughs into new ideas or ways of being.
Anything that is blocking the way of those winds of love and truth to circulate through you will be challenged to break away or break down.
Those old belief systems that keep you stuck may be challenged now. Lifeless relationships or jobs will need to be transformed or let go.
You are moving through a New Chapter of your life now and you can only do so if you surrender and let go of the parts of the Old Chapter that keep you chained to it.
In the greater world the issues with investigator Mueller and Russia and Trump’s team will grow in intensity. By the end of Winter Eclipse Season we will know more of where it is all headed.
Also the manic stock market is “cruising for a bruising'” It is almost time for a crash.
Also look what is going to happen as a result of Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem being the sole capital of Israel. It is only a matter of time when the match will be lit there.
And in South Korea in February, during Eclipse Season, the Winter Olympics happens. The recent peaceful overtures between North and South Korea may hold back the USA plan to take out North Korea’s nuclear program.
Remember that Iraq gave up its weapons of mass destruction, then was invaded. And we were lied to that Iraq still had those weapons.
And Libya gave up theirs and was invaded. Do you really believe North Korea will then give up theirs after what they have seen in those countries?
This year brings much transformational change. And if we each get past the programming from society and families, so we can let in truths we are reluctant to see, and open up to love we have been taught not to trust; then we will have more connections, magic and meaning in our lives.
We will then lead more authentic, satisfying, purposeful lives in greater soul and body health.
We will then get more serious about changing this world, and bringing in the values of our better angels. We will create a world that is fair, and honoring of what is True and what is of Love. We will create a world of Diversity Within Unity- The Age of Aquarius.
Keep up the faith and keep your light shining for all around you to bask in its warmth. If enough of us do that, together we will transform and save this world.
