Powerful Cosmic Energies Mark The Beginning Of 2018: New And Full Moons With A Lunar Eclipse In January

by Conscious Reminder

What better start of the year can we ask for than what we have this year?

2018 starts with a bang, with full moon on the 1st January itself. This New Moon will lie in the Cancer; thus, this New Moon will force us to look carefully at our emotions (As Cancer is the ruler of the emotions).

This will also give us an opportunity to heal our wounds which were a result of the December 2017 energy. Pay special attention to your desire for stability and try to find emotional comfort and support.

Cancer is the core, the foundation thus we need to work on strengthening our inner selves. Under its influence, we all may be more interested and invested in knowing what happens with us, with our families, our land and our country. It forces us to look carefully towards our roots.

This New Moon will make us a little extra sensitive as it will be under the effect of Neptune in Pisces. This will make us more loving, caring and compassionate. We’ll try to do good for others and will try to understand their emotions as well.

The Full Moon occurs at 11 degrees 37 minutes in Cancer. The aspects to this full moon are:

  • Conjunction: 9 degrees 37 minutes – 13 degrees 37 minutes Cancer
  • Sextile: 9 degrees 37 minutes – 13 degrees 37 minutes Taurus or Virgo
  • Square: 9 degrees 37 minutes – 13 degrees 37 minutes Aries or Libra
  • Trine: 9 degrees 37 minutes – 13 degrees 37 minutes Scorpio or Pisces
  • Opposition: 9 degrees 37 minutes – 13 degrees 37 minutes Capricorn

While the Full Moon is on the very first day, the New Moon will be on 16th January. This will feature in the sign Capricorn which is again a very good thing as Capricorn is the sign of dreams, ambitions, passion, goals and life paths. It’ll help you to focus on the important aspects of your life like what you are heading towards, what you want out of your life, how can you be the best version of yourself etc.

Capricorn pushes you to take responsibility for your actions. It makes you believe that you can also achieve greater things in life by pushing yourself towards perfection, by holding yourself accountable and by setting higher bar for your own self.

The New Moon occurs at 26 degrees 54 minutes in Capricorn. The aspects to this new moon are:

  • Conjunction: 24 degrees 54 minutes – 28 degrees 54 minutes Capricorn
  • Sextile: 24 degrees 54 minutes – 28 degrees 54 minutes Scorpio or Pisces
  • Square: 24 degrees 54 minutes – 28 degrees 54 minutes Aries or Libra
  • Trine: 24 degrees 54 minutes – 28 degrees 54 minutes Taurus or Virgo
  • Opposition: 24 degrees 54 minutes – 28 degrees 54 minutes Cancer

The month does not just end with these two auspicious moons; it also features a Solar Eclipse. The first solar eclipse of the year takes place in Leo on 31st January.

The Leo eclipse arouses the creative aspect of your personality and it inspires to take a somewhat unorthodox approach to the life. It pushes you to be more affectionate and allows you to be a little extra sensitive towards the needy. Inspired by Leo, you can be more sweet and caring but also a little dramatic at times as well. This dramatic attitude germinates when you fail to get the attention that you want so dearly. If you feel loved and cared, you have the inspiration and the capacity to share that love to the rest of the universe.

You may rethink your position in the matters of love. If you feel a strong connection then you may grow a lot closer to the person but if you get no signal for this connection then you may very well choose to move away from the person.

The lunar eclipse occurs at 11 degrees 37 minutes in Leo. The aspects for this lunar eclipse are:

  • Conjunction: 6 degrees 37 minutes – 16 degrees 37 minutes Leo
  • Semi-Sextile: 9 degrees 37 minutes – 13 degrees 37 minutes Cancer or Virgo
  • Sextile: 6 degrees 37 minutes – 16 degrees 37 minutes Gemini or Libra
  • Square: 6 degrees 37 minutes – 16 degrees 37 minutes Taurus or Scorpio
  • Trine: 6 degrees 37 minutes – 16 degrees 37 minutes Aries or Sagittarius
  • Quincunx: 9 degrees 37 minutes – 13 degrees 37 minutes Capricorn or Pisces
  • Opposition: 6 degrees 37 minutes – 16 degrees 37 minutes Aquarius

So, be ready for this exciting and inspiring new month and brace yourself for the emotional change that you might go through during this period.
