-Spotlights and Curtain Closures-
On Wednesday, Jan 31st, 2018 we will experience a total lunar eclipse in the sign of Leo at 11°. This is exciting! Why? Just the sign alone tells me that this lunar event will be quite a spectacle. Garnering large crowds of onlookers, the sign of Leo is a natural star. It brings attention, drama and excitement. For better or worse, you just have to watch. Like flies to honey, Leo effortlessly brings in admirers. This Moon will be the star of the sky and everyone will experience the emotion. Big events happen during lunar eclipses that permanently change lives and will forever remain in your memory.
Now, what exactly will happen?! I would have you see your personal natal chart to tell you that. However, in general, there are several things to expect.
Endings! Big ones, too. Troubling situations come to a head and/or completely incinerate. Things that have been slowly burning in your life, explode into flames and turn to dust. Sounds dramatic, huh?! Well, that’s Leo for you. Always pay attention to what sign eclipses occur in. That will clue you into the type of energy it will bring.
Expect a surge of bravery and courage to take a stand against something. If someone has been pushing you around, or if you have associations that are not treating you fairly, this energy gives people the strength to finally stand up for themselves. Leo is a protector and cannot stand to see others being bullied. As such, if you see someone being marginalized, there will be a temptation to fight someone else’s battle. There’s a fine line of when to protect and when to stand down. But once you cross the line, you can’t go back.
This eclipse isn’t heavily aspected but it does form a conjunction with the North node and the Vertex point. This tells me it will bring universal tests, fated events, loneliness, and fame. Yes, fame…for some. Leo is the sign of creativity, fun, royalty, and entertainment. This eclipse could catapult some people into the spotlight, whether they want it or not. Again, a personal natal chart would have to corroborate this.
It also brings large changes with children and family structures. A matriarch or patriarch of the family may have a health concern that needs to be addressed, particularly with the heart or back. Leo governs those areas of the body. Again, to be exact, I would need to see your natal chart. It’s different for everyone and this is a general forecast. It’s also common to see an influx of deaths during lunar eclipses. We are all born during eclipses and die during eclipses. It’s the lunar cycle of human life. Chapters end but the story will live forever.
Needless to say, the next few weeks will be extremely emotional for everyone. Full of life-changing highs and lows. The best way to handle this time is to take it day by day. Keep your mind and body clean of toxicities, so that you can effectively process the eclipse.
We do have an upcoming partial solar eclipse on February 15th, 2018 to prepare for. Solar eclipses mark a fresh new start. This one brings a lot to look forward to.
