On January 21 at 05:17 UT the Moon from Leo accurately opposes the Sun in Aquarius. This is the first Full Moon of the Year and, also, a Lunar Eclipse.
During this Lunar Eclipse all planets are in direct motion and will remain so the whole fortnight of its influence.
This is good news as, usually, the Eclipses demand our immediate action, while the retrograde planets demand from us to hold our horses and rethink what we are going to do.
These two energies fight each other, causing even more problems and disturbing even more our balance. Not having to deal with this during this time, it’s certainly a good thing.
In short, this is a probably easier Eclipse than the previous one and those of six months ago, but it is a very strong one, nonetheless. And like the previous Eclipse, a very magical one, too.
Predictions for Aries
Family is affected by this Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon in more ways than one. Children and children figures may need your attention and care. Patience and acceptance there is a better tactic than pushing them.
They are probably going through a lot of stress, even if you can’t understand this stress. Parents, or parent figures, may have some financial problems or challenges.
Overall, the whole family can take much of your time and may need much of your patience and support. The place you live in, too.
Love life, in a smaller degree, and social life, in a greater degree, also receive some stress from this Lunar Eclipse.
Social obligations may become more than you would like, or more unpleasant than you would expect. What the Lunar Eclipse is trying to teach you is how to be happier in your social and love life.
Keep that in mind when the unpleasant situations happen and you’ll be able to create a permanent correction there.
Predictions for Taurus
Family can become a source of stress during this period. Problems with a family member, probably problems you’ve been thinking you’ve overcome, make their appearance again.
These can be either problems in your relationship with them, or their own problems that are stressing you. Close friends, probably those you would call a “family”, can also stress you in a similar way.
In most cases though, those friends, as well as siblings stress you indirectly by means of their own problems and challenges Financial ones, most likely.
Career can also have some issues and upheavals. They can become stressful, but it’s unlikely to be really bad ones. Students, and especially low level ones, may experience this influence a little more severely.
Predictions for Gemini
Schools and studies of all kinds may become more stressful during the period of influence of this Lunar Eclipse. This will, most likely affect lower level studies more than the higher level ones.
Also, communications, transportations, the equipment of those and travelling can cause you some troubles, stresses, or present you with some challenges. If you don’t really have to travel, it’s wiser not to do so.
Close friends and siblings and your relationship with them also receive some stress by this Lunar Eclipse. Patience is a good strategy in these cases.
Especially so as what you understand about them and what they are trying to express, and what they really are trying to communicate with you may be two different things.
Predictions for Cancer
Money is the main subject of this Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse, for you. Changes there may happen.
These changes may be forced upon you, or they may stress you, but they’ll bring good results in the long term. The Lunar Eclipse is trying to teach you how to use your money better and how to really enjoy it.
As the Eclipse is happening partly in your zodiac, it affects strongly the image you have for yourself and the one you are promoting towards the world around you. This image may change.
Once again, though, the Eclipse is trying to teach you how to be happier and live a more fulfilling life. Therefore, embrace this change instead of resisting it.
Predictions for Leo
The Lunar Eclipse encourages, or, maybe, forces you to explore and redefine yourself. You are learning more about who you are, who you want to be and how you want the people to perceive you.
Occasionally this teachings come in an unpleasant way, but this is a good thing. It can also drive you to change your appearance, wardrobe, and the way you are acting, in order your new look to be more compatible with the image you now believe in and promote.
In the same manner, your spiritual life may change more or less. If you’ve been involved with such kind of schools, gurus etc, some problems and turbulences there may become the earthly reason of this change.
Finally, your health may need some attention, especially if you’ve been abusing it to some degree.
Predictions for Virgo
This Lunar Eclipse affects greatly your spiritual powers. They become very active, but not easily controllable and not always trustworthy.
Dreams, for example, can become more vivid and they may feel like bad omens, but, in most cases, they are simply expressing your own stress and worries, rather than giving you ill omens for the future.
Nonetheless, if you want to practice with these abilities of yours, this is a good period to do so. Just don’t expect immediate results.
Friendships can become challenging under the influence of this Lunar Eclipse. Whether it’s because of problems in the friendship itself, or because of problems in the lives of your friends, it depends on each individual case. Also, it would be wise for you to back up your important files.
Predictions for Libra
The Lunar Eclipse is going to be an easier Eclipse than the previous, Solar Eclipse. Of course, this depends on you personal horoscope, as well.
Prioritize in having enough time to rest and relax and don’t take things too seriously. Making these a daily “habit” can help you greatly.
Career can be affected by the Lunar Eclipse, but in most cases, not in very intense way. Careers related with the internet and high-tech equipment, though, may feel this influence a little harsher.
In fact, high-tech gadgets and equipment can become stressful even if you are using them for personal reasons and enjoyment. Updating your antivirus and firewall and backing up your important files is a good policy.
Friendships and social life can also become challenging. Once again, not too much so, though.
Predictions for Scorpio
Although this Lunar Eclipse is calmer than the previous Solar Eclipse, it affects you more, or more intensively than the previous one.
Therefore, be a little more careful, more on the wise side and rest and relax more. The Full Moon and the Lunar Eclipse affect your career quite a lot. Some changes there can happen. In some cases, the whole concept of your career may change.
This affect those working, those searching for a job and students, alike. As a general advice, do follow your heart, but do not take too many risks, if you don’t need to.
Travelling is not advisable during the Ecliptic period. If you need to travel, anyway, be extra careful, organise your trip as better as you can and, if possible, avoid the day of the Lunar Eclipse.
Predictions for Sagittarius
This Lunar Eclipse and the Full Moon affect your studies, both mundane and spiritual ones. Changes in schedules, teachers, schools, or even subjects can happen.
Your personal beliefs can also change. What you thought to be true, may seem not so accurate any more. This isn’t a bad thing on its own, but it may bring some stress to you while it’s happening.
As your philosophy and beliefs change, the world may seem quite a strange place, after all.
Travelling is not advisable during us Lunar Eclipse. If you don’t need to travel now, then postpone your trip. Also, your spouse or current love may stress you.
Most probably because of problems and stresses they are going through, rather than because of problems in your relationship with them.
Predictions for Capricorn
Love life receives some stress during this Lunar Eclipse. Your finances and your special someone’s finances may be the sparkle that ignites this fire, but they are hardly the cause of it.
It’s just that the Eclipse forces problems in your relationship to resurface from wherever you’ve hidden them. Take the opportunity to heal them.
Good relationships become stronger and better after such situations. The problematic ones, though, can end. Unpleasant as this may be, it is a good thing.
The enjoyment of life, the enjoyment of your money, the appreciation of both and the idea of death can also be some lessons this Lunar Eclipse is trying to teach you.
All these can come in an unpleasant way, but, learning these lessons will surely make your life a more fulfilling one.
Predictions for Aquarius
As the Lunar Eclipse happens in your axis, it affects you more than the previous Solar Eclipse. Love life receives much stress, now.
If you are in a relationship, there may be some problems there. These can, as well, be problems you’ve been overlooking for some time now. Whatever the case, though, grasp this opportunity to solve these problems.
Of course, if the relationship itself is a problematic one, to solve these problems the relationship may end. On top of the problems in your relationship, though, the loved one may be facing some problems on their own and need your support and encouragement.
Therefore, if you cherish your relationship, be ready to offer those to them.
If you are a single, the idea of love and the relationship you want to acquire can change a bit, or the desire to have this relationship may force you to move forward.
This is a good thing, but don’t get reckless. Finally, work receives some stress, too. In most cases, though, nothing too much for you to handle, there.
Predictions for Pisces
Health, both physical and psychological, receives much stress under the influences of this Lunar Eclipse.
If you are already facing problems there, they may become more pressing and demanding. A change in your treatment, or of your doctor can also happen. If you feel you need to force these things to happen, then proceed carefully, and receive proper advice.
The way you see things is not necessarily the best. If you have no such issues, reduce your dangerous and unhealthy habits and support your well being in every possible way. Don’t overdo it, though.
Work, also, receives some stress. Things there can become a bit chaotic and disorganised. Work changes can also happen. In most cases, though, this will be a good, even if a stressful, event.
