ECLIPSES are one of the universe’s most potent tools for catalyzing change and augmenting awareness. They occur when a New or Full Moon occurs within a certain distance of the Moon’s Nodes, those points in space that represent our karmic past (South Node) and our evolutionary future (North Node).
The Lunar Eclipse this Wednesday is an especially significant event. It is a Total Eclipse, amplifying its metaphysical impact. It is also a Supermoon, occurring when the Moon is within a certain distance from the Earth, and increasing its magnetic influence on our planet and our emotions. It is also a blue moon, which simply means it is the second Full Moon within one calendar month — an infrequent event that contributes to our sense of this lunation’s rarity.
The Lunar Eclipse occurs at 5:26 a.m. PST (1:26 p.m. GMT) on Wednesday, January 31, at 11°37′ Leo.
AT THE TIME of the eclipse, the Moon will be very close to the North Node. In her book Eclipses and You, astrologer Judith Hill writes that “celestial energy enters” during such North Node eclipses. She recommends that we use this type of eclipse “to either pray or set intentions for pleasant and productive energy and connections to enter your life.”
If you wish to partake in a group meditation to take advantage of these eclipse energies, my friend, teleclass collaborator, and wellness educator Elsie Kerns is offering a free online Prayer Bowl Blessing and Healing on Wednesday evening. To learn more, please click here.
THE MOON conjoins the fixed star Minchir during the eclipse, activating and focusing the healing effects of that star. Astrologer Roderick Kidston writes that Minchir represents “the idea of something contaminated which needs to be cleaned out, purified, and restored to wholeness.” He continues:
“Think of it as the Humpty Dumpty star. Not all the king’s horses and all the king’s men could put the poor smashed egg back together, but Minchir is a star, and full of magic. It can put broken eggs back together, and doesn’t have to scramble them first. Minchir gathers fragments, then cleans and restores them to wholeness, whether the fragmentation is spiritual, emotional, intellectual, or physical.
THE SUN is of course also a primary player in the eclipse drama, being exactly opposite the Moon. At the time of the Lunar Eclipse, the Sun is aligned with the South Node, Venus, and Juno in Aquarius.
This line-up indicates that we are in the midst of resolving karmic issues regarding how we approach all types of relationships. Old friendships may resurface, and current partnerships or alliances may change significantly. We are compelled to address matters that have not been resolved, to confront ways in which we have closed our hearts in response to the pain of betrayal, separation, rejection, or abandonment.
NEPTUNE also plays an important role in the eclipse, being tightly quincunx the Moon and Ceres. Through these aspects, Neptune tells us that the ultimate success of our healing journey depends on our making a very important attitude adjustment. Wherever we have been locked into polarity and comparison, we must move into trust, forgiveness, and acceptance of what is. By so doing, we unlock the door for the Universe — and Minchir — to do their magic.
As always, the effects of an eclipse are not limited to the day or week in which it occurs. We have already been working with the influence of this Lunar Eclipse for at least the past two weeks, and perhaps a bit longer. And, we can expect related developments to ripple out into the next six months at least, until the next set of eclipses in July and August.
Remember to call upon higher-level beings for assistance now — and also request for their ascended essence to work with you. You might call upon the highest aspects of Minchir, Luna, Ceres, or Neptune, depending on who you sense will be most helpful in your healing and renewal.

How does a Supermoon affect your horoscope?

My body is growing and learning from THE INSIDE OUT *not* From THE OUTSIDE IN, why you say?
Them 2 Brothers *guilt & fear*. You are program to believe *ego* is in charge. Well.....that's a
Pimp's illusion is a lie.

The theme this month is *SPECIAL GUIDANCE* for all 12 signs.
Your action, decision, or opinion will be the deciding factor. If the fruit of the tree is gone, it's time to move on.
The situation in which you feel trapped is only temporary. Your pessimism will soon be replaced by great joy, and someone will be instrumental in changing things for the better. If what you think or hear is negative, don't believe it.
The standstill will be overcome, and/or a reunion is at hand. You are never alone; all you have to do is reach out. Be patient, persistent, and diligent in your efforts.
What you want or need will come to you, and you will be provided for. Unfortunately, the work you're in insulates or alienates you from social involvement. However, you can rise above your emotional limitations by remembering that God is your source and works throught many channels and in many ways. Open your mind to the possibility of a new beginning.
True guidance proves itself, in that it brings with it the action or ability to carry it out ("and by its fruits shall it be known"). If you're in a quandary over what to do, remember that decisions usually make themselves when the time is ready. Your spiritual development will be resumed, and what was missing will be provided.
A feeling of emptiness is sometimes necessary. A cup that's already full has no room for more. Relinquish self guidance (ego) and allow the Higher to lead. There are times when earthly desires must be sacfificed in order to make room for the Divine plan.
Stay detached and you will be able to perceive the truth in situations, and your impressions or perceptions will later be confirmed. Don't be afraid to be defenseless or "lay your card on the table". It can make a difference, because what's consciously or unconsciously being expressed is coming from genuine concern.
People might not get your concepts or see things the way you do, but you won't be left out in the cold. Someone will come to your aid or give you the opportunity to utilize some your skills or talents. There's a tremendous spiritual force present which is causing your inner hearing to increase. In time, what you couldn't see before will be clearly and explicitly revealed.
Change is in the air, and a new approach is at hand. This could come through a friend who will help you "see the light" or attain a new perspective. Be willing to wait, but don't compromise your self-esteem or avoid "warning" signs.
Realize the futility of effort. If something is meant to be, it will come of it's own accord. When you stop seeking, searching, or expecting, it will begin to happen. Since you're not the cause and are powerless to change what is happening, it's futile to be upset. Be willing to listen to, or act upon, new ideas.
Keep folllowing your star and you will get your wish. You may have to air, but what you want will come. Things are working out better and faster than you think, and problems that looked like mountains will prove to be molehills.
Don't bite off more than you can chew in your passion to go forward or you'll find things hard to swallow. The time is not right and you're not ready or fully prepared. Don't think you're alone or that you're not being helped. It's fear and impatience that blinds you from the truth or deafens your receptivity to the spirit. When it no longer serves your growth to not know something, you will know.
