The Planets This Week: January 29, 2018

The astro headline of the week is the Lunar Eclipse! This is no ordinary Eclipse it’s a Supermoon as well as a Blue Moon! This means it is fully charged and over-the-top intense. A Supermoon is when the moon is close to the earth while a Blue Moon is a second Full Moon in a calendar month.

The Lunar Eclipse is in Leo and Leo loves to be in the spotlight and eclipse everything around it, and literally, the Leo Supermoon will eclipse the Aquarius Sun on January 31st. The intense, sometimes sudden bursts of energy from this eclipse affects us all at a gut and emotional level, but will be especially felt by those with personal planets in the fixed signs, and especially by anyone with natal planets or angles at those degrees.

The energy of the Leo Lunar Eclipse is about passion and creativity. Colors may seem brighter, people friendlier; playtime and leisure activities are highlighted. A love affair that began at an earlier time may be progressing to another level. If your relationship is struggling you may find it’s time to move on. You should begin to get a clearer picture of what may be possible.

The Moon in Leo will focus on the self, and Aquarius Sun will be focused on the collective. Looking around the world, we have seen this polarity play out in a variety of ways, particularly the conflict in many places between nationalism and globalism. Leo loves attention and Aquarius loves progress, so expect to see more lights shining on corruption, bringing it out of the shadows. Remember, Jupiter is in Scorpio which is all about bringing issues out and into the open so we can expect a lot more illumination of recent issues in the media. #metoo
