January 31, 2018 Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse
in: Leo 11°
January 31, 2018 @ 1:28 p.m. GMT
Sun is Aquarius, 11° 37' 
Moon is Leo, 11° 37'

Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon

This full moon is the second in the month for most of the world, will appear larger in the sky because the moon is positioned closer to Earth, and will be a total lunar eclipse for approximately one-third of the world to see, where the sky is clear.

I have heard so many different descriptions of this Lunar Eclipse; the Super Blue Blood Moon  and the Super Blue Moon Eclipse are the two most common. Regardless of what we call it, this is not a routine moon event. Even more rare than a blue moon.

There still are no planetary retrograde motions for another month. Make good use of the productivity associated on so many different levels, but don't get burned out trying to do too much.

The partial Solar Eclipse on February 15 will also be the Chinese New Year.

January 16/17, 2018 Capricorn New Moon

Capricorn  SeaGoat ConstellationThe First New Moon of the New Year, in Capricorn, leads us into the first eclipses of the year. This new moon chart appears low-keyed, at first. But after a good look, we realize there is so much power and determination packaged in this new moon, that we may need some time to adjust to the fact that there's nothing low-keyed about it. Thankfully, there is adaptability built into this new lunation, that gives us inward power. If we use the power wisely, there is the potential for a shiny reward in it for us.

Happy New Year!

2018 Happy New Year Full Moon from Lunar Living
This is the first full moon of 2018 and we will get a second super full moon in January.  It will be the Aquarius Lunar Eclipse. This Cancer Full Moon is known as the Wolf Moon. This is a super full moon because it is closer to the earth. It will look larger in the sky, especially on the horizon. There are multiple interactions from the full moon to Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Neptune, giving us a lot of think about and navigate as our new year begins.

Essentially, the Moon is the tail end of a Kite pattern, which elevates the Moon, in status, through the Grand Trine in Water, by adding in Capricorn's Earth element. All the placements in this Kite are feminine receptives. This puts the Sun and Venus, in Capricorn, in the hot-seats at the top of the Kite. Read more about this Super Full Moon at Lunar Living Astrology

The last New Moon of 2017 in the sign of Sagittarius. Then Saturn and the Sun move into Capricorn in a few days before Christmas. 

Venus will be Out of Bounds through the last week of December and into January. Saturn has been moving through the high declinations  of Capricorn, right along with the Sun. 

Lots of Unusual Lunar Factors to consider in 2018. Fasten your Seatbelts as we slide into 2018.  Starting in January, we will get two full moons in January and March, no full moon in February, a Super Full Moon during the Lunar Eclipse in January and a Solar Eclipse in February will begin the Chinese New Year of the Dog.

Super Full Moon over Beijing
Full Moon Gemini Super Moon Advent Sunday Wheee! https://www.lunarliving.org/ articles/fm1203_17.html This full moon has some difficult aspects to it, that we must do our best to navigate with grace.  The Mercury retrograde motion happens approximately eight hours before the peak of the full moon and the retrograde motion will end on December 23. This can be a miserable time to plan for the holiday travel and mailing/shipping season. Double check every detail at least twice!
