As you may know, there will be a full moon/lunar eclipse on the 10th of this month. This might not feel too different right now but as it unfolds chances are you’re going to be quite conflicted.
This eclipse itself is not going to be as easy to move through as some from the past have been. It will be conflicted in a lot of different ways and as a result, throw many of us off-kilter. You see this whole event is going to take place in Cancer and Cancer is a sign that brings emotional turmoil to the surface in some enormous ways.
The energies we gain from this event will be more-so cold and oppressive than we might want them to be and as a result, many of us will be facing challenges that we might not think we are capable of handling on our own. If you’re a sensitive person especially when it comes to the energetic world you might find some of the darkest things within your being seemingly highlighted for the next few weeks.
Sun conjunct Mercury means the main focus of the January 10 lunar eclipse is on thinking and communications but also trade and transport. The Sun, Saturn and Pluto are masculine and authoritarian. This leaves the emotions of the Moon very vulnerable.
At the personal level, thoughts and words are likely to become cold, calculated and ruthless. Feelings will take a back seat to harsh realities as bullies, bigots, and loudmouths gain the upper hand. The lunar eclipse on fixed star Castor increases emotional sensitivity and nervous anxiety.
At the global level, freedom of speech and the independence of the media will be curtailed by governments and even multinational organizations. The public, represented by the Moon, will be subject to lies and propaganda. Even freedom of movement and freedom of association will be threatened as rulers and states increase their grip on power. Human rights will be lost in the name of national security.
However, full moon January 2020 trine Neptune gives some hope that a sense of compassion and humanity will soften the oppressive nature of this lunar eclipse. On a personal level, you can draw on your faith and the support of loved ones. At the global level, it gives voice to religious and spiritual leaders, humanitarian organizations and environmental groups.
As you can see while still full of hope this isn’t going to be an easy event for anyone. It will really bring forth a lot of tension and make clear the issues in our lives and the world as a whole that we otherwise would tend to ignore. Learning from and growing through this kind of thing is imperative but also quite the challenge.
Do your best to ground yourself and protect your personal energies as a whole. While you can do a lot of good right now you also need to keep your best interests in mind. This event is going to push us forward in a very big way and preparing for it is not going to be easy.
