Look to the stars; your map is there.
The Leo Moon wants us to look at the world through your heart. This is where our Lion’s Roar is hidden, our true authenticity and genuine talents. Not only are we beckoned to see the beautiful colors of the world, but we are also to add to it and make it more brilliant.
This is the last of 3 consecutive Lunar Eclipses that started in 2018 and onto this year in 2019. The first from 2018 were on January 31st, then July 27th, and now this one on January 21st, 2019. This is the end of a cycle in which we embrace our true authenticity. This is where we leave behind what no longer serves us or defines our truth and take on a new phase in experiences that balance the unveiling process as we become more of who we are meant to be.
This is also the start of three, back-to-back, significant Super Moons that are all within their respective signs. This means enormous change; a shift.
A super moon is when the moon comes closer to the Earth within its elliptic orbit, resulting in it appearing larger in the sky. A total lunar eclipse is sometimes called a Blood Moon, because of the reddish shade the Full Moon takes on when fully eclipsed.
The changes we invoke during this time will be a theme in our lives for the next 6 months, until the Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn on July 16th, 2019.
The Leo moon inspires us to express ourselves, to find that lion’s roar within and make an awesome display of our magnificence. When we find our authentic truth and are backed with a sense of purpose, we want to convey it to the world.
The fear of being accepted, or even liked, is what is being triggered during this time. Our stage freight or anxiety of being alienated because our unique and awesomely different gifts or qualities is being put on display. This is where you recognize the only limitations you have about showing off what makes you beautiful, is yourself.
The Full Moon luminates the inner-blockages that cause us to be shy, closed in, and to hide away from our beautiful truth because of how others may receive it.
These fears stem from early childhood, as Leo governs children. From our parents or peers, telling us we weren’t good enough, or not giving us the attention we needed. When we were proud of an accomplishment or something unique and beautiful we had crafted, and didn’t receive the recognition we needed to know that we were simply enough, and what we contributed to the world through our imaginative side, wasn’t enough either. This may have triggered many to hide away their creations, or to stop creating all together. This caused many to tell their inner child to grow up and stop playing around.
This Moon brings to life that inner-child once again and invokes them to come out and play.
The defense mechanisms we had developed in order to protect our softness, no longer serve us. They are now the blockages that hold us back from seeing the exquisite, colorful, and warm World we live in.

XVIII the Moon | Truth
One thing I have been hearing from many people recently is that they have been feeling the affects of the Lunar Eclipse already from experiencing a major release as in crying spells and having very vivid dreams.
This isn’t done by random. The sudden release of emotion is so to open the channels into our heart – to break down our barriers and reveal our vulnerability, so we can simply: feel. This clears the way of past disappointments or emotions we were harboring so to reveal more of our Truth. This is how we make our way towards the ultimate surrender, so Source can guide the way onto our next phase that coincides with the deeper layers of ourselves we begin to meet.
The vivid dreams are Source speaking directly to us. This is where many of our downloads are received. When we dream, we are not filtered by the ego. Our subconscious is unhindered. Our dreams hold insights that are the keys in which we need to unlock the doors that lead to truth.
The release of those repressed emotions clears the channel between us and Source energy, our guides, and our Higher Self.
Imagination and intuition are the keys and themes circulating the Eclipse energies, as this is how you will overcome certain blockages that affect your expression and sense of vulnerability. Our dreams, or perhaps insights received from our guides or higher Self will provide the guidance needed. Rather than resisting and trying to overpower the situation with the ego, we will find more headway by surrendering and allowing the unconscious, to become conscious.
January 5th is the most powerful day of the month as we are graced with a Total Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Capricorn which is in conjunction with Saturn (planet of authority and responsibility), Pluto (planet of power) and also Mercury (planet of communication and career) as it shifts into Capricorn’s domain that same day. This is a time of cleansing old karmic patterns, closing out old chapters, and planting new seeds that are focused on long-term goals. For many, this is a great New Moon to preform a money, career, or rituals that are fixated on stability and security. This cosmic event is focused on building momentum for the future.
The very next day, Uranus turns direct within the last degree of Aries, with not only opposes the Moon and the other planets in Capricorn, but it also may trigger a sudden change as it opens our eyes to what is restricting us from moving forward with our long-term goals and resolutions. This is the swift kick in the ass that inspires us to get our shit together. There is an urge to clean up our environment from distractions and things which block us from taking another step on to the ladder of success. (from the Zodiac Tarotscope Blog)
When the Moon is in Capricorn it brings out our practical, organized, and dutiful side. We are inspired to empower our goals and put them first, primarily when the focus is on our career, business, or something we take charge of. This is where a plan is formulated, the steps planned, and the task executed with success. Capricorn doesn’t do well with failure, and so it is easier to see the downsides to our plans, to ensure they are realistic, practical, and of course, reachable – even if it takes a little time and hard work.
These energies are energized as it coincides with a Solar Eclipse and Sun in Capricorn. The new ambitions, resolutions, or intentions we set during this time will be supported for at least the next 6 months, which is the time influenced by an Eclipse, until the next one comes along in the July.
A Solar Eclipse happens when the Moon passes directly in between the Earth and the Sun, and its shadow blocks the view of the Sun from Earth. This is a rare experience which only happens twice a year, typically every six months, and so these are called Eclipse seasons.
Capricorn reminds us: your time, energy, and focus are all investments, and like a Capricorn, we are inspired to invest wisely. The changes inspired by the influential New Moon and Solar Eclipse are going to shake things up so to put us on a higher path that is more aligned with our sense of purpose and a focus concerning our emotional as well as material security.
"I am not afraid... I was born to do this."
Joan of Arc January 6, 1412 - May 30, 1431
On a deeper scale…
While Capricorn is a feminine sign, it does also represent the father or more masculine aspects as it governs authority, responsibility, and structure. One of the strongest characteristics Capricorn possesses is also dedication and ambition.
This is an extremely healing New Moon, especially so for the Sacred Masculine, as not only does it help align us to a sense of purpose in accomplishing major goals by helping us focus where we need to clean up distractions and road blocks, but it also does the same spiritually in terms of healing karmic and ancestral DNA that has been cycling into our lives. The wounds received by the father, that toxic masculinity, is being pulled out from our programming and restored with the more positive aspects of the masculine.

Knight of Crystals | the Masculine
Cards are from the Starchild Tarot and The Gospel of Aradia Oracle
Both of these cards represent the father-figure in your life, or a strong male influence – even the masculine qualities within you. This is a calling to take a closer look at the habit patterns you have acquired from your father’s side, such as your work ethic, business practices, responsibility matters and sense of material security.
The conqueror becomes the protector
This is where our relationships with others comes into play – as they say, we imitate our parents and their relationships, and so this is certain emotional habit patterns which have been implanted into us by our father’s side. The power struggles we experience, or abuse of power is being laid out on the surface. You may ask yourself, is what you have now leading you to where you truly want to go? Can you imagine a future, or a common goal, being reached successfully? This is where the Eclipse energy packs a powerful punch and caters to a rude awakening of the ugly truth – that which was eclipsed from our lives before, is now acknowledged.
