The January Eclipses

The period right before New Year’s eve through January has been extremely stressful for many. It is eclipse season- a time when two or three eclipses come in succession. During these times there are often sudden occurrences that require drastic changes of direction. Through no fault of our own we are forced to deal with sometimes outrageous happenings. It is important to remember that these events are forcing us to grow and that the changes are necessary because some area of our life has become stagnant and less productive. Sometimes a person in our life leaves through some unusual circumstance or even their passing.  The point is, it is not your fault, but you are just left handling the situation. What has made the January 5theclipse more difficult is the close proximity of Saturn (limits) and Pluto (transformation). Pluto is the Lord of death so those types of changes where you have to completely let go of a person are often very painful. In the case of the January 5th eclipse, both the Sun and Moon were besieged (surrounded) by Saturn and Pluto.This made it more difficult to move forward because there are intense issues that must be held in place, at least temporarily, so that you can really feel the depth of the problems and come to the correct response. It is best to not react immediately on an eclipse and give yourself time to sort out the issue(s). Often the eclipses fall in opposite signs of the preceding eclipse in the series, but in this case, we are flung into a new mode and sign. The lunar eclipse is now coming up on January 21st at 0° Leo 51’. This means the things that have left your life or may be leaving due to the recent eclipse will be followed by a sudden switch of focus toward something self-directed,self-involved, creative, heart centered that is at a very new or beginning phase (the zero or 1st degree). If either of the eclipses falls on a planet, personal point or angle of your chart, then the emphasis is even more pronounced. It will be as if one chapter closes and you are thrown immediately into the next one without time to hesitate. Do you know where these eclipses fall in your chart? Schedule a reading to get clarity on upcoming decisions related to these areas.

In New York, the full moon eclipse on the 21st falls on the MC/IC axis auguring some new changes within the city and Uranus (shocks, sudden reversals,technological shifts, enlightenment) at its stationery degree in Aries on an angle doubly emphasizes these changes coming in. We may be seeing some shocking events in New York with this lunar eclipse around the 21st that bring sudden  changes we weren’t expecting. What I am hearing now is it is going to be far colder on Monday- in fact 35 degrees colder than it will be on Sunday. There are technologies that can change the weather that haven’t been openly disclosed that may have to do with this. Listen for the high pitched tone the day before. Keep your warm clothes and a heating pad nearby to stay warm- and hope the technological emphasis in the city’s chart won’t mean a power failure!
