2019 has started right out with eclipses, the first subtle solar eclipse on January 6 and now our first (total!) lunar eclipse changes the color and tone of our experience early on in the new year. Sandwiched tightly between Saturn and Pluto, this is a 'no-nonsense,' 'Big Happenings are happening' opening window into a fast-tracked year.
All year, we continue to be under the disciplined regimen of Saturn and Pluto, implacably focused on a redesign of the way we are living on a living planet. In Capricorn, the best response is simple, basic, clean, streamlined, useful and practical. The basic pragmatic approach of Capricorn earthiness can often calm emotional turmoil, settle insecure feelings and effectively move a stagnant situation into a new gear.
This Total Full Moon Eclipse is a super 'blood' moon, especially large because closer to Earth. A total eclipse that turns the Moon reddish, therefore called a 'blood moon.' This is the last total lunar eclipse until 2021. In 2018 we had two. It is also the last eclipse that occurs in the signs Leo and Aquarius, a sequence that began with the famous "Great American Eclipse of August 2017. Have you satisfactorily stepped up to the challenge of these eclipses: to show up as more of who you really are?
A lunar eclipse has broader visibility than a solar eclipse. This one is basically visible from the eastern Pacific, across the Americas and the Atlantic, in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and a bit of northeastern Asia. Whether you can see it or not, welcome and respond to this stunning invitation, asa compelling opportunity to engage the energetic awakening, unexpected perspectives and surprising flashes of fresh developments on the horizons in 2019.

The emotional desire of this Moon is to break through the eclipse shadows into the freedom and adventure of uncharted territory.
In a few short weeks (February 17-18th), Chiron crosses the Pisces/Aries 'event horizon,' the point at the end and beginning of the zodiac cycle— just in time to celebrate the very next Full Moon, on February 19th. If we are willing to let this Full Moon Eclipse wash away stale energies, spiritual weariness, disconnected mentalizing; any discouragement, hopelessness, fear or anxieties that are resisting growth and openness to the brand new sparkling field of energy that is shining around us. How do we become aware that this field shimmers through own field of energy and through our bodies, charging up dormant brain cells, offering unprecedented potentials, if we are open to perceive, receive and answer the call to create the new vision.
The eclipse energy may take us by surprise, with some hidden surprises hidden in its shadows. 
Uranus, the Wild Card Change Maker, is highly active in this eclipse, fired up for a last burst of fireworks in Aries before it grounds the lightning. 
Uranus plants itself in Taurus for the next seven years, starting on the March 6 New Moon. (The planets seem to be coordinating with the Moon cycle!) That's just a couple of months from now!) Read More
