Lunar Eclipse in Leo - Shine Your Unique Light

Tomorrow morning, 01/31/2018 at 5:26 AM Pacific Time, the Lunar Eclipse will be exact in 11° Leo

Leo is a fixed Fire sign - an energy of warmth, laughter, play, creativity and affection, that represents the Love for Life.

The Moon will be conjunct Ceres Retrograde, shining light onto childhood, nurturing, self-love and healing. (See my blog post about Ceres Retrograde here and in what area you are supported to heal)

During Full Moons the Sun's light is reflected on the whole surface of the Moon (of the side that we see). Metaphysically speaking, the Sun represents our willpower & conscious decision making (our masculine energy), while the Moon represents our emotions & subconscious decision making (our feminine energy). So during the three days before and after the Full Moon our subconscious fears and beliefs come to the light, in order to be either released/transformed or celebrated. A Lunar Eclipse magnifies this experience.

This Lunar Eclipse in Leo will influence the time until the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on February 15th.

 

Tonight's Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse is the time to open yourself up to Leo's energy:

It is time to embrace your unique light and to release anything and anyone blocking it from shining through you. This Lunar Eclipse is a powerful one, combined with a Blue and Supermoon, helping you release deep rooted fears in regards to being your authentic self, no matter what others think or say.

Many of us have access to collective memories, either through "past" lives or ancestors, where we were told to shut up, sit down and do what we're told or else something bad happens. This made many of us go into the shadows, afraid to truly shine our light, afraid to make waves in order to survive. 

This Lunar Eclipse is the time to release those fears, do the shadow work and knowing that you have come here into this lifetime to shine your light through the things that bring you JOY and that make you UNIQUE.

If you're unsure, what makes you unique, Astrology is a great tool to find out one's talents. It helped me tremendously in knowing why I'm here which makes it easier for me to just BE ME, even though others may not like it. I came to the realization that what other people think of me is none of my business and it has helped me a lot to truly connect with what makes me special. And everyone of us is special.

For this Lunar Eclipse:

 

Ask yourself:

What brings me joy in life?

What makes me special?

How do I shine my light?

Meditation exercise:

Open your arms towards the Full Moon and imagine nectar dripping off into your Solar Plexus and Heart Chakra. Place one hand onto your Heart, the other onto your Solar Plexus. Feel your body fill up with Golden Light giving you the strength, courage and inspiration to be who you truly are within. Feel the Golden Light now bursting out of your Heart, filling the air around you with Golden sparkles. Open your arms wide. You are the Sun, shining your light. Your authentic self is so needed in this world. Breathe in and out deeply and see your light shine brighter with every breath. Whenever you feel ready, release.
