The Nurturing Lunar Eclipse
Get ready for the ‘MOTHER’ of all Moons!!! Why? This intense and uplifting energy will not happen again until 2047!! I’m sure all of you beautiful people will have heard of the Blue Moon, BUT – we will also experience a blood moon – which is a SUPERMOON!!
The lunar eclipse on Wednesday January 31, 2018 is at 11 degrees Leo. The lunar eclipse January 2018 astrology centres on an extremely close alignment of the Moon and Ceres. With this particular moon, such energy will have a focus on women – the empowerment on all women, – single, partnered, married, or widowed. The roles in which all women will see themselves, as well as society at large is dramatically changing as a global and international society have seen over the past couple of years. The moon rules women and traditional motherhood, while Ceres rules independent women and modern motherhood. The dynamics of traditional roles will be questions as women will question what they would wish to do with their own self-empowerment and development.
Lunar eclipse January 2018 will focus attention on single mothers and working mothers. Working single mothers really are super women. Juggling and balancing their lives as well as their loved ones. The rights and freedoms of women in general are major themes of the January 31 lunar eclipse. Social discussions and political debate in this eclipse phase will include parenting styles, custody rights, maternity leave, childcare and equal pay.
The dynamics of traditional roles will be in questioned as women will brainstorm on what they would wish to do with their own self-empowerment and development. Now, this isn’t an ego thing, rather to put their own needs for a change FIRST. Remember, the Divine Feminine energy will be an ongoing theme for 2018, and beyond.
The Lunar Eclipse
For this lunar eclipse will only be more intense and stronger. The main focus will be on attention to detail within intimate relationships, family and home life. A total lunar eclipse will have a more profound impact on your personal life. The Sun opposite Moon qualities of emotions and instincts will reach their peak during the lunar eclipse. You will take a more objective look at your close relationships to see if there is balance and harmony. Everyone will be able to clearing see their own intentions and needs – and hence be able to notice if there is any relationships imbalances that may be causing disharmony.
In particular, when there’s a blotting out of the Moon during the total lunar eclipse – this represents the resetting of your emotions, clearing away any emotional baggage of the previous six months. You can truly see it as the ‘reset’ button if you like! This January 31st lunar eclipse marks the end of an eclipse phase which began with the August 7th, 2017 lunar eclipse. There will be a new eclipse phrase which will include the solar eclipse on 15 February 2018. It will last until the solar eclipse of 12 July 2018.
The January 31st, 2018 lunar eclipse falls at 11°37′ Leo Sign. However, due to the procession of the equinoxes, this eclipse is in the Cancer Constellation. The Moon is at home in the Cancer Constellation. This means that the Full Moon in January 2018 will be very powerful total eclipse of the Moon. The Cancer the Crab rules the home and family, mothers, mothering, housework, and comfort. It is emotional, domestic, intuitive and sensitive. The Crab, and this lunar eclipse, will make you feel more caring and responsibility, with a charitable and fostering nature. The Moon in the Cancer Constellation is emotional, domestic and sensitive. Cancer and the Moon are more intuitive than logical.
This Lunar Eclipse has two main points:
The Moon: represents your emotions, subconscious, habits, memories, moods, mother, maternal instincts, nurturing, home and your need for security, as well as clairvoyance as well as a symbol for Archangel Haniel.
Minor Planet Ceres: rules motherly love, female reproductive issues, family bonds and relationships. Named after the Roman virgin goddess, Ceres represents independent single women and sole parents. (Yes, this does include single fathers as well!) Ceres being the grain goddess ruled agriculture hence the growing of plants, food crops, natural resources, harvest and the environment.
Lunar Eclipse Summary January 2018
This lunar eclipse gives a sense of nurturing and caring of one’s family and loved ones. But on the other hand it is also a double edge sword of empowering one self to give the rights to all women who are seeking equality of recognition to work in highly-skilled jobs, access to education, access to health care, equal pay, and yes, still in some parts of our world the right to vote and be recognised for being women. Parts of these issues are political, sociality, cultural and religious debate which has no easy answers. HOWEVER, with this new lunar eclipse – the first step is to start a conversation….and hence a new beginning.
The role of divine woman has wholeheartedly changed. As women we have been given the choice to marry or not. The choice to have children or not. Yet they are choices – personal choices to make individually. Sometimes life deals with ALL OF US different cards, and again there’s no easy answers. There is also a energy to nurturing yourself as well as nurturing others.
You will realise with this blue moon, supermoon and lunar eclipse that these energies will require balance, understanding and patience. We each have both Divine feminine and masculine energies within our being, we each have a responsibility to search, to reflect within ourselves for our own nature as well as nurture.
Remember to all those who are mothers, (or fathers, step-parents, grand-parents or guardians) if you are single, partnered, married or widowed….you’re doing a FANTASTIC JOB! You are doing the best you can for your children!! (and step-children & grand-children!!)
For those aren’t parents, REMEMBER THIS: There are many ways to be a PARENT. YOU JUST NEED TO SHOW LOVE, AND TO SHOW COMPASSION FROM YOUR HEART. You don’t need to be a parent to pass on your DNA – you just need to have that loving heart.
May you have a blessed Lunar Eclipse, Supermoon & Blue Moon.
Many blessings and love to y’all!
