The lunar eclipse in Leo, which will take place on January 21st and will touch the IV House of Taurus, indicates the need to finalize urgent home reforms or move to have more space. Since it is a lunar event in the IV House, it is also indicative of situations related to a relationship with a mother or a mother figure which must be resolved. The presence of Eros in the II House of Taurus can lead the sons and daughters of the bull to make unforeseen expenditures which seek to increase their comfort or sense of security.

Eclipses and their Seasons

Eros, the asteroid of lust and desire, will remain in the IV House of the bull. This is an astral transit which is characterized by complacency towards your life partner, overindulging yourself or playing the victim with goal of getting attention. The start of the retrogradation of Pluto and Saturn in the IX House of Taurus House April 24th and 29th respectively signals a deep revision of projects associated with international growth, specializations, publications and trips or moving abroad.

Prudence and tact are advised in conversations with others and even with yourself. This happens every two to three years seven times in the Metonic cycle of 19 years. Owing to the rarity of a blue moon, the term "blue moon" is used colloquially to mean a rare event , as in the phrase "once in a blue moon". One lunation an average lunar cycle is There are about Therefore, about In the widely used Gregorian calendar , there are 12 months the word month is derived from moon [6] in a year, and normally there is one full moon each month.

Each calendar year contains roughly 11 days more than the number of days in 12 lunar cycles. The extra days accumulate, so every two or three years seven times in the year Metonic cycle , there is an extra full moon. The extra full moon necessarily falls in one of the four seasons, giving that season four full moons instead of the usual three, and, hence, a blue moon. The earliest recorded English usage of the term blue moon is found in an anti-clerical pamphlet attacking the Roman clergy, and cardinal Thomas Wolsey in particular by two converted Greenwich friars, William Roy and Jerome Barlow, published in under the title Rede me and be nott wrothe, for I say no thynge but trothe.

The relevant passage reads: [8]. O churche men are wyly foxes [ It is not clear [ according to whom? The intention may simply be that Jeffrey makes an absurd statement, "the moon is blue", to make the point that priests require laymen to believe in statements even if they are patently false. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the Maine Farmers' Almanac listed blue moon dates for farmers. These correspond to the third full moon in a quarter of the year when there were four full moons normally a quarter year has three full moons.

Full moon names were given to each lunation in a season. The seasons used were those of the mean tropical year , equal in length, as opposed to the astronomical seasons which vary in length because the earth's speed in its orbit round the sun is not uniform. To compare, in the equal seasons began at 1. When a season has four full moons the third is called the "blue moon" so that the last can continue to be called with the proper name for that season.

This gives 11 months with one full moon each and one with two. This second in a month, so I interpret it, was called Blue Moon.

The Astrology of Year 2020

The most literal meaning of blue moon is when the moon not necessarily a full moon appears to a casual observer to be unusually bluish, which is a rare event. The effect can be caused by smoke or dust particles in the atmosphere, as has happened after forest fires in Sweden and Canada in and , [13] and after the eruption of Krakatoa in , which caused the moon to appear blue for nearly two years. Helens in and Mount Pinatubo in On September 23, , several muskeg fires that had been smoldering for several years in Alberta, Canada, suddenly blew up into major—and very smoky—fires.

Winds carried the smoke eastward and southward with unusual speed, and the conditions of the fire produced large quantities of oily droplets of just the right size about 1 micrometre in diameter to scatter red and yellow light. Wherever the smoke cleared enough so that the sun was visible, it was lavender or blue. Ontario, Canada, and much of the east coast of the United States were affected by the following day, and two days later, observers in Britain reported an indigo sun in smoke-dimmed skies, followed by an equally blue moon that evening.

The key to a blue moon is having lots of particles slightly wider than the wavelength of red light 0. It is rare, but volcanoes sometimes produce such clouds, as do forest fires. Ash and dust clouds thrown into the atmosphere by fires and storms usually contain a mixture of particles with a wide range of sizes, with most smaller than 1 micrometer, and they tend to scatter blue light. There is no ideal perfect union, commitment, or beauty, but only a messy, imperfect attempt at attaining our human concept of love and self-transcendence.

Saturn's square adds some limitations and reality checks, like how what we feel, want, or desire may not match up with what's available in the moment. With this New Moon, a compromise or attitudinal adjustment may be required. With greater insight about how we can improve our ability to connect and generate rapport, we can begin taking decisive steps toward making things better.

If you're already in the thick of the hard work, this New Moon will serve to reinforce your efforts. No matter how difficult or how many obstacles you encounter, keep your heart open and let the love flow. September's Full Moon climaxes alongside Neptune's brightest moment--it's opposition to the Sun. Additionally, the Moon is in technical conjunction with Neptune itself.

For sky watchers, that won't make it easier to see if using a telescope or binoculars , but it's an apt metaphor for the Neptune archetype as nebulous, obfuscating, and elusive. Out of the notable planetary archetypes in astrology, Neptune may be the least understood. However, if viewed through the lens of synchronicity, there's meaning behind its title as God of the seas. Surrender comes to mind. When faced with what appears to be a supernatural power, willing surrender is sometimes the only choice we have.

Humility is a side effect, allowing us to gain perspective of our place in the larger scheme of things. Neptune can bring awareness of overpowering, natural forces, or supernatural realities--hyper dimensions or "disembodied" intelligence. Whatever the case, the Neptune archetype may serve to remind us of how little we know and excite us about the mysteries yet solved. Here, there's a sense of caution, especially in managing desires, impulses, or rage. Since the target, destination, or objective is likely obfuscated, utilize more critical discernment before jumping in. Thoughtlessness, carelessness, or naivete may be the most significant points of weakness.

If you can avoid both temptation and distraction, you can channel enthusiasm toward a greater purpose and perhaps receive much-needed insight and inspiration. On the other end of the Full Moon equation, lies a cluster of planets in Virgo, a mutable earth sign. With Saturn stationing direct next week, it wouldn't be wise to evade responsibilities.

Finding a moment to retreat, meditate, or contemplate may not be possible, but this combination reminds us of the wisdom that divinity lies just as equally in the mundane. If possible, turn daily tasks and duties into a mindfulness excersice.

As the lunar cycle winds down into its New Moon phase, we're ready for a shift and change of direction. This month's Virgo New Moon may not correlate with a period of restfulness or laziness as the dark Moon typically tends to do. Here, we're given the seeds for the birthing of an integrated productivity flow.

This is an optimal moment for beginning anything that requires meticulousness and precision. Alongside that, however, can be a sense of feeling overwhelmed with the enormity of what needs to get done, or the many areas needing improvement. Neptune's wide opposition to the New Moon from Pisces can offer distraction, escape, or an inspiring vision of the way forward. The current line-up of planets in Virgo Mercury, Sun, Moon, Mars, and Venus , can stimulate single-mindedness and intensity of focus.

The downside of this dark Moon can lead us into unproductive fault finding, feelings of insecurity, and paralysis. Both Mars and Uranus make the closest aspects to this New Moon, generating some useful tension. One manifestation of Mars is the eruption of anger, frustration, or fear.

Uranus' trine offers an unexpected opportunity for liberation, freedom, and a refreshing change of pace. One solution to any current frustrations might lie in taking an unusual route. Whatever shows up four you alongside this New Moon, consider that a commitment to relentless improvement will be required. There are likely some high standards to adhere to, too. However, the Virgo path is one that stimulates a desire to be better, more useful, and acquire competency and skillfulness. Use this time to sharpen your focus, skills, and confidence.

And look carefully for a unique edge or an alternative way forward. A New Moon trine Uranus is a dynamic fresh start, a lunation that can suddenly clear the way for change, progress, and resolution. Two culminations are occurring right now. Yes, the Full Moon in tropical Aquarius is the obvious one. Less visible is the Full Venus in Leo that exacted on Aug.

If you were looking at an ephemeris or chart wheel, you would see what would look only like a conjunction of Sun and Venus, but that's not the whole picture. From our geocentric perspective, it appears as a conjunction, though one that we can't physically see because the rays of the Sun overcome Venus' light. Venus' synodic cycle is nuanced and complex, but not every conjunction is the same.

The magic of Venus is that it weaves together significant creative, artistic, relational, or overall heart-centered themes on a very predictable rhythm. Reflect on that period and see if there are any current connections. Fate can be hard to see, and just as difficult to avoid. There is likely a dominant theme involving significant relationships embedded in this Full Moon. The presence of Mars adds a dimension of friction, tension, the need for assertion and the stirring of anger or aggression.

The Aquarian Moon adds an element of objectivity and perspective. Perhaps that translates quite clearly in seeing the tensions that exist in current partnerships and collaborations. Perhaps also, there's a sense of having to face fears, take a leap, and confront something in a cool, collected, and civil manner.

There's also a risk of detachment and icy coldness contaminating authentic exchange and emphatic dialogue. Finding a balance between honoring individuality and the values perhaps aggressively guarded of others can be another challenge. Look deeper into the theme of your interactions and try to see a more significant purpose or meaning. Creative or ingenious solutions can also break through this Aquarian Full Moon. With eclipse season passed us, and Mercury stationing direct, things gradually fall back into a regular flow and routine. However, Mercury's station alongside this New Moon can still present delays, glitches, and sluggish momentum.

One upside to this is that New Moons are conducive to taking it slow, moments of more inward focus, rest, and relaxation. Also, with Venus' close conjunction, there's a restorative and slightly social vibe to this lunation which serves as a nice contrast from the intensity of the last two eclipses. With the Sun exalted in its ruling sign, the firey, gravitas of Leo gets an extra kick. The Leo principle emphasizes performance but also moments of joy.

This lunation can correlate with the start of creative, self-expressive, or recreational endeavors. With Venus close to both the Sun and Moon, there's an extra emphasis on the pleasure principle, too. Uranus' square to this lunation adds an erratic and unanticipated element, especially as it pressures both Venus and the New Moon. Leo's fondness for excitement or the pursuit of a good time can lead to a prevalence of distractions or mishaps if you're not careful.

As always with Uranus, there's a chance to change something up, only the square feels like enforced rather than voluntary change. Suddenly the wildcard emerges when you least expect it. When looked at another way, this New Moon can spontaneously ignite creative, sexual, or relational passion. With Saturn and Pluto inconjunct from the shadowy edges of Capricorn, we can't completely ignore the challenges of the current era or the responsibilities that loom in the background.

But this New Moon offers lightness and boldness, allowing us to claim the confidence needed to take any hardship head-on, and possibly, enjoy ourselves for the moment. This month's Full Moon is a partial lunar eclipse in tropical Capricorn. Important themes or issues from the start of could resurface, meeting a crisis, completion, or resolution.

In general, lunar eclipses are more significant Full Moons. They bring about more dramatic breakthroughs and blossomings. In the sign of Capricorn and conjunct Pluto, this is not a comfortable or relaxed lunation. This eclipse has a dystopian aura and the need to face the consequences of past actions. Disturbing revelations can surface on the extreme end.

It can correlate with the exposure of abuses of power or corruption, and generally feeling the weight of responsibilities and limitations more heavily.

moon phases

If you're caught up in the negative side of this eclipse or find that it amplifies a current existential crisis, move through the feelings and insights no matter how uncomfortable. If you're looking out at the current political and cultural scene and feeling especially hopeless, you're probably more attuned to reality than those clinging to optimism. This Capricorn eclipse can bring us closer to facing reality; however, if you're naturally more on the stoic side, its insights won't be as shocking.

The North Node in Cancer conjunct Venus offers some helpful advice. The "right side" of the current, unfolding drama is in the path of inclusivity, compassion, and love. The North Node suggests releasing fear by letting go of the need to maintain control of the status quo, but ultimately, Venus in Cancer suggests seeking out the support of others and banding together.

Venus on the North Node correlates to more amplified desires for authentic bridge building. With Venus approaching opposition to Saturn in the following days, relational insecurities, challenges, and tense negotiations are likely to surface. Venus' higher message is to listen and practice empathy.

Seeking common ground is never easy, but there are ways of making it harder by refusing to see another point of view. July's New Moon is a total solar eclipse in the tropical sign of Cancer. The eclipse will be visible predominately oversea and for most regions of South America. Eclipses are more meaningful for the specific regions where the eclipse path falls, but also, eclipses can be experienced as more pronounced lunations for everyone else. This month's total solar eclipse is a potentiated New Moon that will correlate with the initiation of significant changes and developments over the next six months.

New Moons are new beginnings, and total solar eclipses symbolize the first steps in a vital transformative process. Eclipses, by their very nature, are inherently about change. Ancient people viewed them with fear and trepidation, as negative omens, sometimes indicating the death or dethronement of those in power. Indeed, inherent to the symbolism of the total eclipse itself is that the Moon, a symbol of hidden, obscure, and irrational natural forces momentarily overpower the Sun, a symbol of stability, authority, and rationality.

Eclipses bring about an accelerated pace of change, typically beginning from within oneself and radiating outward. Especially in the days surrounding the eclipse, the urge to change things up can more profound than usual. Cancer points to changes more so on the inner realms, the domestic life, the heart and hearth. This eclipse can stimulate intense sensitivity, domestic dramas, and a pronounced urge to protect, defend, and nurture.

The Moon, in Cancer, is especially strong in its ruling sign--accentuating the intuitive, psychic, and sentimental. In opposition, however, is Saturn, equally strong in its ruling sign, Capricorn. By itself, Saturn demands growth and maturity, which requires letting go of what's become too comfortable. There is an inherent element of discomfort in this eclipse, and bringing Pluto into the picture, we might feel a "now or never" kind of vibe to this collective change-making process.

What's brewing now both personally and collectively will endure a critical reality testing early next year, so keep that in mind. If you choose to "follow your heart," you'll need to defend that choice in the face of challenges. Of course, that's central to do what you feel is right because it isn't necessarily the easier path, but the one that's likely the most rewarding. In the moment of this eclipse, it's also easier to keep busy to avoid facing your feelings about a particular matter. The South Node in Capricorn tempts us to make things harder for ourselves, too, through exhausting ourselves so that we don't have to face our soul's calling.

Full Moon Meaning

Perhaps, the astrology has some profound wisdom to espouse about what's happening "out there" as well. The eclipse accelerates the intention of the Cancer North Node, which invites us to heal before we rebuild because we risk restoring over a faulty and unstable foundation. Healing isn't simply imaging "love and light.
