Harness the January 2019 full moon’s powerful lunar energy.
We can all feel a little crazy around the time of a full moon, and the next full moon in January 2019 — known as the Wolf Moon, according to the Farmer’s Almanac— will leave all zodiac signs howling!
Be prepared for your love life and relationships to be affected by it, as surprises, emotional upheavals, and a desire to break away from the ordinary are likely to unfold under it’s powerful lunar energy.
How will the January super blood moon and total eclipse in Leo affect your love life and relationships, according to astrology?
The moonbeams of this eclipse will cast shadows on your hidden desires — and that’s not always a bad thing! It allows you to get in touch with what you want versus what you need in love and relationships.
If you feel like you are settling in your life, this lunar eclipse will shine a bright light on those areas. Just be careful to stay aware of what you really want during this time, or you could find yourself cleaning up messes made during this full moon for the next six months.
The astrological influence that has the most potent effect is the moon square Uranus, the planet of unpredictability. With Uranus square the moon in January, your life will feel like you have been on an emotional roller coaster and you are getting off in the funhouse, not sure which way is up!
Since the moon rules emotions, you can expect this super moon paired with a lunar eclipse to be off the chain. Your emotions will be running high and unexpected abrupt changes will be around every corner, leaving you feeling unsettled.
When is the next full moon and total eclipse on the lunar calendar?
The next full moon and total lunar eclipse will start the night of January 20, 2019, and reach its fullest point at 12:16 A.M. on the 21st. This January full moon will be even more powerful because it’s both a super moon and a blood moon.
A super moon, or supermoon, “happens when the full moon coincides with the moon’s closest approach to Earth in its orbit. Supermoons make the moon appear a little brighter and closer than normal.”
A blood moon “happens when Earth’s moon is in full eclipse [… and] the usually whiteish moon becomes red or ruddy-brown.”
And if that weren’t enough, this next full moon is especially worth paying attention to since it will be the last super blood Wolf Moon total eclipse for the next 18 years!
Some love life excitement may be just around the corner, but beware of making new romantic connections or casually meeting up with an ex. (You already know where that is going.)
Eclipses are known for working out your unresolved issues in very unexpected and painful ways. However, some relationships can benefit from a little “truth serum”, which is exactly what this eclipse will bring. It may be just what the doctor ordered to clear up the past and reach a new level of intimacy in your relationship.
As luck would have it, Uranus is also square Mercury, the communication planet. Sudden revelations could radically change your plan, and the results won’t disappoint!
If you feel like you’re always behind the eight ball or trying to clear up misunderstandings in your relationships, think twice before making lasting changes or agreements during this total eclipse — or you could live to regret it. Instead, use its lunar energy to allow yourself to see a different perspective, which will help you break through self-imposed barriers that are affecting your love life.
All the lunacy around this full moon and total lunar eclipse in January is likely to cause anxiety and uncertainty about your future.
To maintain your sanity within all the turmoil, clear your emotional baggage from six months back. This eclipse can radically “clip” away the emotional baggage you have accumulated over the past, emphasizing revelations you’ve had over the last six months. You can do this through energy healing, conscious release, prayer, and chakra balance, to name a few.
Do not make sudden changes either. The opportunity may sound golden, but take a moment and think: Is this really the chance you have been waiting for, or another lesson waiting to be learned?
Lastly, avoid overreacting during this full moon. Things may be going sideways in your love life and relationships and you could feel like the sky is falling — but it’s not. So take a chill pill and cut your family, friends and partner some slack.
