Leo Lunar Eclipse January 21st 2019
On January 21, 2019, there will be a Full Moon in the sign of Leo which is also a Total Lunar Eclipse.
One thing you need to know about astrology, however, is that a Full Moon doesn’t happen on its own – we also have to look at it in relation to other planets and in this case, the Lunar Eclipse will be in a difficult square with Uranus. This planet is known for being the planet of rebellion and revolution, but it also brings with it surprising opportunities which come out of the blue! This means that you need to expect the unexpected at this time, but you also need to realize that all change can be a little scary and may cause you to feel nervous.
The pace will also pick up for you now and it could seem as if you can’t keep up. The way to get through it will be to take a very deep breath and remember that you will need plenty of patience and a good dose of common sense to help you navigate through it all. It is also a good idea to keep in mind that no eclipse is either 100% positive or negative, and it is how you react to the planetary influences now that will decide how you get through this Full Moon phase. If you want to make the most of this time and avoid any potential pitfalls then keep reading to learn how to manage this Leo Lunar Eclipse!
What does a Lunar Eclipse Mean?
A Lunar Eclipse is like a Full Moon but on steroids! As the Moon is all about our emotions and our feelings, you are likely to feel much more emotional when a Lunar Eclipse rolls into town. It will usually focus your attention of your home and your family life as well as any relationships with women – as the Moon rules female energy. One thing to remember is that when we have the Sun opposite the Moon, our emotions can go through the roof! On the one hand, this means that you can get clear about your wants and your needs, and if you are in any kind of relationship that is struggling then this can be a time to untangle any issues you have had.
Eclipses are also traditionally times of endings and therefore new beginnings, so it may also be that some relationships end at this time, or this is the end of one chapter and the beginning of a new one. An eclipse also usually lasts six months, from the previous eclipse and this means that you could be putting the final touches to something you started in the past. It is also a good time to go back over your emails and messages from six months ago to see what you were doing or planning to launch at this time – as these themes may come to an end for you now. Or this could be the end of one chapter of your life that started six months ago.
This particular eclipse on January 21, 2019, is also linked to the Solar Eclipse on January 5 and the Total Solar Eclipse on July 2, 2019, so these eclipses will all have a similar theme associated with them. This means that this is also a good time to write down some notes in a journal so you can see what themes might emerge over the next few months and up until July 2019.
What’s the meaning of the Lunar Eclipse on January 21, 2019?
The Total Lunar Eclipse that falls on January 21, 2019, will fall in the sign of Leo the Lion. Leo is a sign we associate with love, romance, sex and creativity and this is also associated with the Fifth House in astrology. If you have any factors in Leo or in the Fifth House, then these could be triggered now – so make sure you check your birth chart! When we look at an eclipse, we don’t just look at the sign it falls in, but we also need to look at the conjunctions & other aspects that it makes. In this case, the Moon will Square Uranus before it goes into the sign of Leo on the 20th, and Mercury will also square Uranus within 4 degrees applying & Saturn will square Mars, Venus & Jupiter will be conjunct – so we need to look at these planets in relation to the Lunar Eclipse. I’ll talk about that in more detail in my World Predictions as it will be felt worldwide but remember unless the above is making an aspect in your natal chart it will not hit you directly in a sense.
I will add, the Moon will square Uranus which will mean that your mood may be more changeable than usual and you may react to things more quickly. There could also be a strange feeling in the air and you could feel as if you just can’t decide how you really feel about something. It could also feel as if people want to deny you your freedom, but this may not actually be the case and it may just be that the planets are making you feel penned in and tied down. This could also make you feel restless and you may want to stray from your normal routines – or feel bored and like you are stagnating in your life. This could also lead to a build-up of nervous energy which makes you go a little stir crazy. Remember that this feeling is not unique to you so others will be feeling the same way and this could lead to a clash as everyone is feeling a little on edge.
Also in the skies, we have Mercury which is going to be square Uranus which could make the tension even worse. This could also manifest as some news you were not expecting which shocks you to your core and it could be that you have to make decisions on the fly which will make you nervous. It could also seem as if there are just not enough hours in the day and that you are not able to make any progress at this time as life is just so chaotic around you. If possible, then avoid having to do anything too taxing now like sign paperwork or read through complicated contracts as you lack the focus and concentration to do so. When you talk to other people, try to keep the topics light as you may find that you have problems clearly communicating your thoughts with those around you. Everyone will be lacking in patience now, so you need to try and be mindful of that if you want to avoid arguments.
There will also be a positive side to all of this however and you will also feel more creative now and you could have some kind of epiphany when it comes to your creative projects. You may also find that you have sudden and unexpected opportunities and that you are in the right place at the right time. One thing to remember, however, is that anyone you meet now is unlikely to be someone who goes the distance in your life so you should treat any love connections cautiously.
There is a lot going on in the heavens at this time and the best way for you to get through it is to take a deep breath and stay flexible. Try to avoid making solid plans as these will only make you more anxious if you need to change them due to unforeseen events. This is not a negative Lunar Eclipse by any means, so as long as you can approach it with some humor and patience, you will find that you can sail through this time without any major drama erupting.
