The First Full Moon of 2020 is Eclipsed! and it arrives tonight, 10th January. A Penumbral Lunar Eclipse will be occurring which means that around 90% of the Moon’s Disc (at its maximum) will be shaded by the Earth which will result in a slight shadow gradient across the Moon. Also known as the Wolf Moon because it is entering the time of year when wolves start howling just before their main breeding season, this First Full Moon is also in the very caring, creative and nurturing zodiac sign of Cancer.
In astrology, the Full Moon represents the completion of what we have been working on – the culmination of our efforts. With the influence of Cancer this is going to have a bearing on our emotional security and safety. This feeling will be further emphasised because of the Eclipse and all those with Cancer strong in their Astrological DNA will feel heightened sensitivity, not only because this sign is ruled by the Moon but because of the natural disposition of this energy towards the feeling of vulnerability.
This is a highly intuitive and sensitive energy with a decent helping of creativity. So, if you have been spending the last few weeks reflecting on how you are going to make a project work then have faith in the ‘midwife’ of the Zodiac, Cancer, to help you give birth to it! Rise to the occasion rather than hiding beneath your shell – it will be important for your long term security.
If you’ve been holding on to emotional experiences that are of no use to you anymore – let them go. It is time to develop your independence and become emotionally more self sufficient and in the process allow yourself to move on.
The First Full Moon of 2020 is Eclipsed! The Lunar Eclipse strengthens the effect of the Full Moon, especially where personal emotions and feelings are concerned – things that affect your private life. The Eclipse allows you to reset your emotions, ridding yourself of any emotional baggage which has gone well past its sell-buy date and is just not serving you well anymore. Use this opportunity to carefully consider things that may be blocking your way forward and causing disharmony. Take a good look at your close relationships and clearly identify the imbalances that exist then set about creating the right balance for you. This mustn’t be impulsive, but well considered if it is to serve you well.
The zodiac sign Cancer is ruled by the Moon which links us to our basic survival instincts and is how we nourish ourselves and feel at home. Enjoy the influence of the Full Moon in this protective sign. We may become more vulnerable in the process but with vulnerability comes care, support and empathy. This energy has ‘the common touch’ and can tap in to what is popular with the masses. Use it well.
For those of you who own some SPA Zodiac Jewellery, remember to ‘charge’ your gemstones through the energy of the Full Moon tonight. With Love & Light, Stevie xx
