A New Moon is a time of new beginnings and seed planting. It begins a cycle that lasts 2 and a half weeks building up to the Full Moon when the intentions we’ve set and worked towards spring to life. The lunar cycles can be used monthly to manifest. During eclipse season, we have the energy of the Sun behind our manifestation abilities and visualizations.

Once you’re clear, visualizing and taking steady steps towards your goal until the next eclipse season will surely bring success.

If you have been bottling up emotions, just know that with a total lunar eclipse, nothing will stay under the surface; especially given that a Fire sign will be bringing all passions up and out. Keep your cool and do your best to stay positive about the things that are now showing up because of the Full Moon energy. You’ll notice people around you going through major life changes, both positive and negative, depending on how they’ve been managing their energy and thoughts.

Other Major Influences During The Month

January 6th is an important day that will allow your plans from the previous year to finally manifest because Uranus stations direct. Generally, during the 155-day period of Uranus retrograde, our dreams will not manifest in the physical world because the internal self must first shift to be able to handle the changes. On this day, we are full-speed ahead and ready for those changes, so there’s even more chance that you’ll see great changes this month in the realm of your goals!

The Sun will be in hardworking Capricorn until January 19 when it moves into Aquarius. This means both the New Moon and the Sun in career-minded Capricorn. so you’ll be most focused on planting seeds for your future success. The Full Moon lunar eclipse in Leo meets the Sun in big-picture Aquarius, so yourself and other people may be thinking larger-than-life, and overstating abilities or over-promising time. You may be quite caught up now in the affairs of the world around you due to Aquarian’s penchant for humanitarian ideals. With the Moon in fiery Leo, watch that you don’t tire yourself out trying to be all things to all people right now.

Concluding Thoughts…

Our big question to you now is, are you going to be pushed around by the powerful cosmic energy of the incoming eclipse season, or are you going to use it direct your focus to tackle your goals with intention? I think we both know the answer to that question. You wouldn’t have read to the end of the article if you didn’t want to step into your purpose and use the energy of the planets to ride the cosmic tides.

Astrology King mentioned it’s an especially great month for kicking off artistic or spiritual projects and making them successful long term. All you writers, healers, actors, and artists have something good coming your way with the other positive forces at work as well. Numerologically speaking, we are in a number 3 year which promises harmony and success. It’s the year of the Earth Pig in Chinese astrology, which means an easy year full of abundance and celebration. People are less serious, more jovial and ready to be entertained and a Full Moon in the performer’s sign of Leo could bring major success for those who dare to live in the spotlight!

We know the more people on this planet living from their heart and using the cycles of the planets to time their goal planning and action taking, the better our planet will be. When we are empowered to live the purpose we came to fulfill, we can enjoy life and make the world a more positive place. A life lived with purpose is a life worth living, and a life lived without purpose shall need to go around again.
