ECLIPSES AND ROMANCE
Nobody likes change, but eclipses do shake us out of our complacency no matter if we’re ready or not. We have already been feeling it!
A Super Blue Moon Eclipse will happen at 3 30pm on the 31st of January and bring its energy into February and beyond! Is this a big personal event, well if it connects directly with your birth chart then you can expect your emotional tides to overflow.
As for mundane worldwide events, we are already seeing many natural disasters and can expect more to come sadly.
Generally this is a time for harvesting, reaping what we have sown and ridding ourselves of the weeds that erode our lives. Anything we have planted that hasn’t grown correctly needs to be pulled up and thrown out, in order to start over.
If extra nurturing is needed and deemed worthwhile to help our life, work and relationships grow, this is the time to make the effort to do so. A Lunar Eclipse will bring about changed in a deep and personal way.
This eclipse connects with the asteroid Ceres where you feel the need for more nurturing and praise from and towards others, mothering issues may pop up! This eclipse is a great time to explore creative talents and allow a sense of fun into your otherwise mundane everyday life.
We will become aware of the vibrations as the calmative energy of what is wrong in the world comes to a head followed by ripples of reaction where we will notice cause and effect of the actions of the past.
Super Moon is a term for Full Moons occurring at the Moon’s perigee, when the Moon comes within 90% of its closest orbit to Earth. This creates pressure on the ocean and the tides which results in natural disasters as the Teutonic plates shift and move, weather patterns can become extreme. Hmmm pretty…but not nice!
A blue moon is simple an expression used for when we experience two full moons in a month.
The Lunar eclipse is followed by a Solar Eclipse which will happen on the 15 Feb in Aquarius. It will not be visible in South Africa. A solar eclipse is just like a regular new moon where the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun. However, a solar eclipse is more powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun.
This eclipse will uncover deeply hidden nurturing and wounded feelings on a personal realm. You may realise that you wish for the freedom to be yourself in relationships of all types. If you do not have this freedom you will have a strong urge to become cranky and rebellious…parents may see this behaviour rising its head in their children more than usual.
Traditional forms of marriage will feel like old school, interesting and unusual marriage ceremonies will begin to replace tradition. This is an interesting eclipse that will bring about more same sex marriages becoming acceptable throughout the world. The effect of eclipses begins months before the actual event and continues long after.
Unusual health issues have been and still will come to the fore as this eclipse connects with the health asteroid such outbreaks of Listeria and annoying virus infections.
The strongest and most important aspect in astrology is a solar eclipse. It means all possibilities are on; put yourself in the forefront of new plans for the future. Get rid of old habits and search for new and inventive ways to make a fresh start.
On Valentine’s Day we will have the Moon who nurtures and Venus who desires connecting. The day of love will become more about an intellectual connecting through groups of friends, so if you are looking for an interesting valentine, meet up with a group of likeminded caring rather zany friends.
Mars will ingress into the expansive fire sign of Sagittarius this month. Please be aware of fires as they are certain to spread. The same goes for tempers, confrontations and anger.
Racism will be on the rise and could become exponentially violent, so avoid racist and political debates if possible as they could get out of hand.
We could see the rise of inspirational leaders and become inspired ourselves. In a positive light this expansive fiery action can certainly prod one into exploring many new and transformative ventures.
Make this a month of positive change, improve your life, you do not need to be stuck in a boring cycle of regrets and disillusionment. Be brave take a leap into the unknown and turn your life into an exciting adventure.
This Mars in Sagittarius is happening at the perfect time as a Solar eclipse is all about a new Moon and where the Sun exposes our personal goals and is when we are at our most outgoing in life. This works well with the new Moon where we pack up our rubbish and fears and move forward carrying only the positive lessons we have learnt from the past, binning the rest.
A happy life is a healthy life!
There is an increase of air and waterborne diseases going around and we really need to be aware of what we eat and drink.
The drought is preventing the removal of sewerage and stagnant waters, ideal breeding grounds for diseases. The areas where there has been rain have become very hot and humid creating fungal growth within the water; though we are told that the water is not harmful in these times rather not take a chance. Invest in a filter that goes onto your tap, a brilliant investment saving a lot of money spent on bottled water.
Perhaps due to the heat and contamination in our waters, processed meat foods may be contaminated with Listeria, a deadly bacterium affecting many people, symptoms are excessive vomiting, and massive headaches…do not ignore these symptoms!
Wow that was cheerful, well the eclipses are certainly showing us how to change our ways.
Be careful, embrace change and become the dream you want to be.
