The blood moon of January is almost here and with that opportunities will be presenting themselves to us. This time we will all be reaping the benefits of what is to come.

As you may know, there will be a blood moon (total lunar eclipse) on January 21st. This blood moon will be the first of 2019 and occur in Leo. During this time we can and should all be expecting a lot of hectic energies to come forth. Conditions will be changing and your abilities will be forced into the light. Your self-control and adaptability will come in handy during this time and should not be overlooked.

Lunar eclipses are much stronger than most people realize. They hold the power of a full moon but times ten. They will force you to delve into the world of your emotions and well as the world of your future. This specific blood moon will be heavily affected by Uranus and because of that, we all need to be on edge.

While this eclipse in itself will be a challenging one it will really be a time for thought. Do not obsess over the small things and remember how intense the effects of your actions can be on the people who care for you the most. Because the moon itself will be square Uranus at the time of this blood moon chances are you and many others will also become quite impulsive and suffer from rapid mood swings.

Lunar eclipses like the one we are going to see soon will really bring forth the perfect time to work within and really teach us to heal the wounds before us. We will be letting go of things that hold us back and really showing our shadow selves. All that has been bringing you down will be highlighted and worked through in due time.

Astrology King wrote as follows on the topic:

Lunar Eclipse January 2019 is opposite Mercury and square Uranus. This signals unexpected events and news that are likely to cause anxiety and uncertainty about the future. 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.

Although the fixed star conjunct the Sun does not moderate this erratic energy, it does offer help by giving confidence and courage. Self-control and patience will counter a tendency to overreact and argue when faced with stressful situations. So take small steps and be adaptable.

This blood moon is going to without a doubt leave a lasting impact on all of us. While the energies before us are going to be a bit frustrating they will all push us towards where we need to be. Understanding the things ahead is not easy but the more we work at it the more prominent things will become in our lives.

During this time keep your ego in check and do not do anything too drastic. Don’t allow your emotions to control you but do allow them to guide you. Stay as mindful as possible and really work to move forward on a positive note. For more information on how this blood moon might affect you please check out the video below.
