Lunar eclipse January is emotionally very challenging because the Moon is so afflicted. If you are a sensitive, timid person you need to protect yourself against bullies.
If you are strong you need to protect more vulnerable family members and friends. This eclipse favors the powerful and wealthy. Like a regular full moon only stronger, the Sun opposite Moon of a lunar eclipse brings your home, family and intimate relationships into sharper focus. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy. The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a lunar eclipse.
So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony. A lunar eclipse represents a resetting of your emotions, clearing away the emotional baggage of the previous six months.
The Moon opposite Sun at a lunar eclipse accentuates the polarities in your life which creates much tension. So imagine the tension created with a supercharged Moon opposite such an intense stellium of planets. The lunar eclipse is also influenced by a major fixed star called Castor.
This Mercurial star is associated with success and genius, when well aspected. But afflicted by so many oppositions, Castor can cause loss, insecurity and nervous breakdowns. Lunar eclipse opposite Mercury causes emotional bias and polarized thinking that makes it harder to understand and communicate your feelings. You may have difficulty making sense of everyday problems, and misunderstandings or oversensitivity could lead to arguments.
Addiction, racism, and prejudice may influence your thoughts, words, and behaviors. It is important to listen carefully and think before speaking because of a tendency to react instinctively, especially when upset. Talking with a mentor may help you make sense of conflicted feelings. Lunar eclipse opposite Saturn can cause bad moods because of sadness, boredom or loneliness. Difficulty in sharing your emotions can lead to relationship problems. Melancholy, pessimism and emotional coldness could also make socializing a chore.
You could feel burdened or guilty about responsibilities for your partner or someone much older or younger than you, like a child or grandchild, parent or grandparent.
If you already have a tendency toward depression, you will need to work hard to avoid your negative feelings manifesting as loss, disappointment, and despair. True to Leo form, this dramatic exit helps us to finish up, understand, and integrate the major life-lessons we learned in the area of our chart that contains Leo. This eclipse helps us tap into, and explore, the potency of living out our potential when we allow our unique self-expression to surface and take flight.
The next non-Capricorn eclipse occurs 6-months later, on July 2nd.
With this total solar eclipse and new moon in the emotionally charged water sign of Cancer, we are called inward to cultivate a deeper understanding of our emotional intelligence, needs, and nourishment requirements. With the north node also in Cancer, our appetites increase. Cancer feeds the children, rules the stomach, and is ever voracious for emotional intimacy. This is the balance to all the austerity of the eclipses in Capricorn.
Capricorn builds the structures, Cancer fills them with the waters of creation. With both Saturn and Pluto, the power players of our solar system in Capricorn, the structures of our world that need the greatest transformations could also be the ones that become or remain the least open to change.
An overemphasis of Saturnian energy, when distorted, promotes regression, repression, and traditionalism.

With the rhetoric of fear, exclusion, and domination easily spreadable under these skies, we must work with both our internal and external landscapes in order to implement change. What is poisonous must go through a purging process. The solution to any external difficulty is, in part, to face the same within the self. It is the place from which we always have access and power.
Working to understand, and then disrupt, our internal systems of inequity helps us to do so externally. Getting to know our inner critic well enough to interrupt the self-denial that keeps our souls, and our societies, undernourished is transformation from the inside out. Getting to know our own bitterness, hatred, and despair is one of the most effective ways to heal it internally, and address and interrupt it out in the world.
Since Saturn rules Capricorn, the themes of it are amplified while it transits through its home sign. Pluto brings with it extremes. Birth, death, and transformation are just an appetizer for this Underlord. Here, Jupiter seeks to helps us expand our world view, open our options, and magnify the possibilities for all.
Running on excess is a theme with this combination, but as previously stated, a large portion of the skies is heavily opposing such behavior. Jupiter in one if its home signs can help us make huge strides in our life and world, however. What is helpful in doing so is focusing on the area of your chart that contains Sagittarius written about in your horoscopes below and here.
This much needed expansive energy should be worked with wisely. Working within the boundaries of our lives helps us access the power of the present, the tools we have, and the wisdom we have gleaned from all our work thus far. As Uranus finishes up the last of its transit through Aries November to March and re-enters Taurus, to stay for good until , we are asked to revolutionize how we relate to our resources.
Written about below, in your individual horoscopes, and here in a much more in-depth post, Uranus in Taurus shifts the ground we often take for granted as solid and in the process shifts our priorities in regards to what we work towards building. With so many major planetary transits occurring in earth signs this year, we know that how we work, what we build, what we consider a resource, and what we will end up understanding as essential to our ability to live on this earth, will change greatly as well as teach us the most.
We know that, outside of alternative facts about our climate and environmental conditions, living within the boundaries of the natural world is essential to being allowed to exist here. We are of the earth. We live an d die by its health and well-being.
