Say hello to the first lunar eclipse of 2020

The first eclipse of 2020 occurs January 11th in Cancer.

This is the closing energy from the New Moon that occurred July 13th, 2018. If we look back in time, we can note similar stories that started then are coming to completion now. A dream or project has finally come to fruition and we are slowly walking away from that vision before we embrace the next big chapter in our lives.

What the Cancer lunar eclipse will bring

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon moves behind the Earth. The Sun, Earth, and Moon are exactly aligned with each other in preparation for a Full Moon. But, the Moon passes into the Earth’s shadow for an extended period of time making it last longer than a typical Full Moon. The Earth blocks the Sun’s radiance from the Moon making the Moon appear reddish to us earthlings. It’s an extremely potent and powerful energy that affects the emotions and fertility of all living things here on Earth, as the Moon controls the tides of the ocean and all creatures are reliant on water (which the Moon controls). This lunar eclipse can be viewed from Africa, Asia, Australia, and Europe. It will affect these countries the most, which is why it’s important for all living beings of these countries to try and harmoniously get along during the eclipse.

Eclipses bring matters to light. We can all expect to see situations and relationships in a different way. Shake ups, breakups, and breakdowns may happen in order for us to transform and evolve. We are being shown the truth or all matters now with the celestial incentive for us all to make important changes in our lives. After all, we can’t stay stagnant forever. However, the eclipse will push us out of our comfort zones at an accelerated pace, which will cause a lot of intense reactions as a result.

What it means for you

This eclipse will be extremely challenging because gossipy Mercury, austere Saturn, and transformative Pluto will all be opposing the Cancer Moon in Capricorn. We can expect to be the victim of power struggles or intertwined in love triangles. Conversely, we may be the one putting the boundary on relationships - even if our heart wants the opposite. As with any aspect involving the Cancer Moon, we will try to protect ourselves from others, no matter the personal cost. We may decide to end relationships or friendships because they make us feel unsafe or dejected. Regardless of the avenue we choose, this eclipse will be one for the books as we are guaranteed major drama.

In order to steer clear of the theatrics of the 11th, we will all need to make a conscious decision to be kind. This means not having the last word in an argument or when having a minor difference of opinion. Sometimes not having the last word, is having the last word. We can control how we react, even if we cannot control what others do to us.
