Astrologically, the biggest event for January is the upcoming lunar eclipse that occurs on
January 31, 2018 in the sign of Cancer. Cancer is a water sign that deals with our emotions and our sense of security, on a deeper level it is our subconscious mind. The moon represents the mind, and our consciousness. Representing our past and our karma.
The water signs of the zodiac are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. Each of these signs will be impacted, as the eclipse falls in the water sign of Cancer. Water signs FEEL life. They are emotional, intuitive and sensitive.
Everyone, has the sign of Cancer in their chart. For example, if you are Cancer rising sign, this is your 1st house and the house that signifies your body, your emotions and how you are feeling. As a water sign, this effects us on a deep emotional level. Eclipses are harbingers of change. They usually bring something to the forefront that we did not know, or that was swept under the rug in the past.
The moon deals with the past, events or information from the past can resurface now, causing emotional upset. This is a good day to avoid making any major decisions or engaging in business transactions. It is a good time for meditation, and for quiet contemplation. If possible, keep your diet on the light side. Quiet time with meditative or relaxing music, or spending time in nature will be helpful.
The Lunar Eclipse affects us on an emotional level. This is internal, and often does not show outwardly.The moon is fluid and moving, our emotions are changeable. The moon changes signs every 2.5 days, and like the tides of the ocean our mood and emotions change. However, the upcoming Solar eclipse, which occurs on Feb. 15, 2018 in the sign of Capricorn, will have a more significant and longer lasting effect. More on that in February!
