January 21 2019
The Full Moon on Monday January 21, 2019 in the first degree of Leo is a total lunar eclipse. It signifies a need to get out and achieve. Urgency, excitement, and a desire to gain knowledge combine with the eclipse’s usual intensity to make for a supercharged time. Leo taps into pride and a keenness to save face, knowing how much reputation counts. A challenging square aspect to Uranus the planet of uncertainty and rebellion brings change but also opportunity.
Moon square Uranus causes rapid mood swings and impulsive reactions. You may feel jumpy and have little patience for anything requiring commitment or focus. If anyone tries to tie you down or forced you to do something you are likely to rebel. This is not a good eclipse for making sudden changes, especially in close relationships. New encounters may meet your need for a thrill but would cause a great deal of upset to your life and have a negative effect on loved ones.
Mercury square Uranus can cause nervous tension because of the unsettling feeling. This is not a good eclipse for making plans or attending to detailed paperwork due to lack of concentration
With the Full Moon combining Leo and Aquarius energies, we can see how children still need to have fun, even when achieving, and try not be overly serious or conform to suffocating traditions. Uranus in fast and furious Aries points to a wild-child element with the potential for sudden rebellion. So keeping an open mind and staying calm and patient is key to dealing with this erratic and unpredictable energy. Otherwise, impulsive reactions, rapid mood swing and miscommunication could cause panic and chaos. On the positive side, you have an increased ability to view things through a different perspective, which can lead to original ideas and breakthroughs.
