• Once in a Very Blue Moon

    So what is a Blue Moon? When there are two Full Moons in one month, the second one is called a Blue Moon. As the lyrics read from that classic song, “Just once in a very blue moon, and I feel one comin’ on soon”. Yes, one is comin’ soon . . .  on January 31st.

    Remember that 2018 started with a Super Moon on January 1st. A Super Moon is when the Full Moon is closer to the Earth and appears a bit larger. It is actually 14% larger than the smallest Moon, which is quite significant and noticeable with the naked eye.  But there’s more!

    Not only is this a Super Moon and a Blue Moon – it’s also an Eclipse. So I would call its official title a Super Blue Moon Eclipse! That doesn’t happen too often. This Eclipse falls in the sign of Leo, which will make it important for that fire sign.  An Eclipse is the best time to release old patterns in your life and we will all feel it, even if we’re not Leo.

    The year of 2018 is an unusual year relating to Blue Moons. January will have two Full Moons with the last one being the Eclipsed Blue Moon. February doesn’t have even one Full Moon, but March will have two Full Moons with the last one being the second Blue Moon of the year. But it won’t be an Eclipse, like in the Blue Moon in January. Most years will only have one Blue Moon in a year. There are 12 months and 13 Lunations, creating one Blue Moon per year. But since 2018 started with a Full Moon, it snuck in an extra Blue Moon.

    What does this all mean astrologically? It is a gift to us to have 2 Blue Moons in one year. Anything rare is a gift. Early in 2018 will be the time for us all to see our lives in a totally new way. What are we waiting for? Now is the time for change. This can be a release of outer possessions or obvious life situations and routines that need to be changed. It can also be letting go of inner patterns, including outdated emotions and beliefs. Let’s all take this challenge to help us become our most optimum selves so we contribute our gifts more fully to the world. If we all do that, the world will be even a better home for us all.

    Happy Blue Moons!

  • Astrology During Aquarius

    The Sun enters the sign of Aquarius on January 19th at 8:11 p.m., Mountain Time. Aquarius is an air sign and is associated with the wild child of the Zodiac, Uranus.  Aquarius is the free spirit of all the astrology signs. This sign is the perfect entrepreneur because of the need to be independent. This sign doesn’t take direction very well. Aquarians are often involved with the high tech industry, inventions and intellectual properties that that help the world. They are the humanitarians who want to save the whales and are willing to march for a cause.

    We have a couple of Eclipses this month and at least one of them is quite interesting. The year of 2018 opened on January 1st with a Super Moon, which is such a great way to begin the year. On January 31st will be another Full Moon, but this one is also a Lunar Eclipse. But there’s more. The second Full Moon during a month is called a Blue Moon. So this one is called a Blue Super Moon Eclipse in Leo! Once again, what an unusual way to start the year! In addition to the Blue Super Moon Eclipse, we will also have a Solar Eclipse on February 15th in Aquarius. All the Solar Eclipses this year are partial Eclipses, so nothing very exciting with Eclipses this year.

    Valentine’s Day this year will be one day before the Solar Eclipse. So the Moon will be in Aquarius for this holiday. This sign is perfect for having an unusual Valentine’s Day. Break old traditions and try something fun and different for your loved ones.

    There are several planets changing signs this month, which will stir up the energy a bit, especially for the signs involved.

    • Mars will enter Sagittarius on January 26th to bring even more dynamic actions. Travel is highlighted now.
    • Mercury enters Aquarius on January 31st, the same day as the Blue Super Moon to add some quirkiness to the Full Moon.
    • Venus enters Pisces on February 10th. That is a loving combination that would be great for healing massages or facials. Spa pampering.

    Regarding the visible planets, we’re in for a treat this month. But the catch is that we’ll have to get up before sunrise to see them. If you get up about ½ hour before sunrise, you can see Mercury, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter in a sweet arch across the sky. Mercury will be fleeting and will disappear into the glow of the Sun by January 31st, but the rest will be there all month. This is a rare alignment of planets and it will be worth it to get up early to spot them.

    Have a fabulous month and I’ll see you in Pisces!
