Looking at the chart below you will see that Mercury is nearly six degrees from the Sun. This is too wide an orb to have much of an influence on this lunar eclipse but Mercury square Uranus will, at just over three and a half degrees orb. Moon square Uranus causes rapid mood swings and impulsive reactions.
You may feel jumpy and have little patience for anything requiring commitment or focus. If anyone tries to tie you down or forced you to do something you are likely to rebel. Your normal routines may become boring and you could be easily distracted by anything new and shiny. You may have trouble relaxing because of an unsettling feeling or anticipation of something new just around the corner.
This is not a good eclipse for making sudden changes, especially in close relationships. New encounters may meet your need for a thrill but would cause a great deal of upset to your life and have a negative effect on loved ones. You may experience emotional outbursts from friends or family that would need extra patience and sensitivity. Mercury square Uranus can cause nervous tension because of the unsettling feeling mentioned above.
You may receive shocking news or experience something unexpected that forces you to change plans. The normal tempo of life increases and you may have an unsettling feeling of always having to catch up. This is not a good eclipse for making plans or attending to detailed paperwork due to lack of concentration.
Mishaps are likely in your communications whether in person, in writing or on the internet where misunderstandings could lead to arguments. On the positive side, you have an increased ability to view things through a different perspective, which can lead to original ideas and breakthroughs. Chance encounters with others are possible, but most new friendships will probably be short-lived. Think twice before making bold statements, and double-check and travel plans.
Avoid making spontaneous decisions or agreeing to things on the spur of the moment. So remaining flexible and open-minded is key to dealing with any unexpected events, from your car breaking down to printer jams. This bright pale yellow star in the neck of the Eagle gives a bold, confident, valiant, unyielding, ambitious and liberal nature, great and sudden but ephemeral wealth and a position of command.
Altair conjunct Sun gives public honor, notoriety, favors from superiors, many friends and some envious ones who cause trouble through writings, some ill-health and losses, and danger of bites from venomous animals. Lunar Eclipse January is opposite Mercury and square Uranus. This signals unexpected events and news that are likely to cause anxiety and uncertainty about the future.

So keeping an open mind and staying calm and patient is key to dealing with this erratic and unpredictable energy. Otherwise, impulsive reactions, rapid mood swing and miscommunication could cause panic and chaos. Although the fixed star conjunct the Sun does not moderate this erratic energy, it does offer help by giving confidence and courage. Self-control and patience will counter a tendency to overreact and argue when faced with stressful situations. So take small steps and be adaptable. If Lunar Eclipse January directly impacts your horoscope decan you can read about its effect in your monthly horoscope.
For more detail about how it affects your natal chart see Full Moon Transits. Yes, you will be personally impacted. As to how cannot be answered without assessing your whole chart. In a general sense, though, Venusian issues will, obviously, be highlighted for you.
Venus rules a wide range spheres which include money, relationships of all kinds — romance, love, friendships, business partnerships — pleasure, luxuries, beauty, design, fine arts — including music, indulgence and over-indulgence, harmony, sensuality, indolence, valuables, and justice and the law, just to name a few examples. You may experience a sudden change related to one of these areas.
Venus enters Sagittarius
Thank you HeavenSent! I consider Venus somewhat weakened and challenged at this lunar eclipse. You may be luckier than most, with your Venus supported by the Sun. Use comedy, poetry and music to bridge the divide. Yet the Mars trine Venus aspect today, and thru the eclipse, has built up a strong flow between the sexes, it is possible your natal Venus is better positioned to enable actual conjugation.
Very interesting, thank you! Venus is not too well positioned…. Thanks for reminder about asteroids. The eclipse on my 0 Leo Mercury. Opportunity just passed my IC. Something from the past. Who knows. Her birthday is the day of the eclipse, Jan 20th. So she will be experiencing a solar and lunar return simultaneously. Any thoughts on how she can fully take advantage of this moon and what to expect?
I was asked to leave the job end Dec and we are having discussions since then. Can you advise if I can regain this position through Jan 21st eclipse please? I have never seen such a challenging chart for the US. Eclipse was tightly conjunct my Mercury but nothing happened that I know of. Where is your North node? This point is said to guide your destiny. Glad to hear it. My NN is 21 Taurus.
But my Sun is 17 Leo and asc is 12deg45 Leo. Nothing has clicked. So about 6 months from now. You just made my day. I checked 6 months from now and you were spot on. Uranus will be conjunct my MC at that time. And the full moon in June will be smack on my progressed MC. Plus a couple of conjunctions to that stellium you mentioned. Progressed Moon in 10th house. Almost forgot, SA Moon conjunct that stelllum.
Any more thoughts? Prog Moon angular 10th will hone your command of day-to-day activities, while undergoing personal resurrection during the evenings. Priorities become clearer now.
Weekly horoscope: 26 January horoscopes for all 12 zodiac signs by Russell Grant
Well over two millennia ago, Chaldean astrologer—astronomers discovered that these identical eclipse—producing conditions repeat like clockwork. This enabled them to predict eclipses with great accuracy. They called this cycle the Saros. Its length is 18 years, 11 days, 8 hours. After that precise interval, Sun, Earth, and Moon return to approximately the same relative geometry. They are lined up the same way, and a nearly identical eclipse happens.
That last phrase — a nearly identical eclipse — is critical here. Earlier we saw that after this January's lunar eclipse, we will have another one in May That's only two years and four months later — way short of a Saros cycle. But it will be a different kind of event in terms of length, the visual size of the Moon, and so on. So all of the eclipses linked to a specific Saros cycle are like a family—line, with strands of astronomical DNA held in common. Together, they are called a Saros Series.
There are separate solar and lunar Saros series, by the way. All of them are assigned numbers. Currently, for example, there are 41 active lunar Saros series happening. But each Saros series evolves, and eventually dies. Their life spans vary a lot, but you can think in terms of a Saros series lasting a very long time — say, a thousand years. Obviously this is complicated territory. Space and format mercifully prevent me from getting "book length—technical" in this newsletter.
If you want to learn more, there is a fine article about the Saros cycle in Wikipedia — just Google "Saros astronomy " and it will take you directly to Virgo paradise. You may be wondering what any of this has to do with astrology. Fair enough. Your mileage may vary, but in my experience lunar eclipses, while visually captivating, have not impacted me much more than the monthly Full Moon — like you, I just grow a coat of fur, sharp fangs, and a compelling jones for human blood.
But, taken as a Saros series, these same lunar eclipses might provide a powerful missing link in the foundational logic of evolutionary astrology. The key is to remember that the nodes of the Moon are critical to eclipses — and that the nodes of the Moon are also the heart of what makes evolutionary astrology a unique discipline within the field. They are what links your chart to reincarnation — the long journey of your soul through human history.
And just maybe lunar eclipses — and the Saros seris — can focus our attention on certain specific periods in history, perhaps periods which feel inexplicably familiar and real to you. Earlier, I mentioned Murray Beauchamp. He has been part of my Australian apprenticeship program pretty much from the beginning, and he has developed some intriguing ideas about the lunar Saros series.
You can still get it via the American Federation of Astrologers. You can also contact Murray directly at lunarsaros gmail. Murray has lectured quite a lot in Australia and New Zealand, but his work is pretty much unknown in the northern hemisphere. His ideas are still formative, but I already find them extremely intriguing. Look for the lunar eclipse immediately prior to your birth. It does not have to be Total; it can be umbral, or even penumbral.
Find out which Lunar Saros series that pre—natal lunar eclipse belongs to. Then look for the first umbral eclipse in the series. That is the birth of the series. Murray says make sure it's the first umbral eclipse — not the first eclipse of the series, which is always penumbral and does not count. By the way, The Cryptic Cycle contains tables and Internet links that will help you with all this. The lunar eclipse that immediately preceded my own birth was part of Lunar Saros Series That cycle began with an umbral lunar eclipse on June 16, A.
What follows is totally subjective and quite possibly meaningless. All I can say in defense of what I am about convey is that the inevitable first test of all astrological techniques lies in one's own personal experience.
I would never teach anything that failed to illuminate my own life. We must of course eventually go beyond our narrow ego—world in order to make sure we are not turning a personal quirk into a cosmology. Before we open our mouths, we need to be sure that what we conjecture will be helpful to people in general. But everything begins with your own personal astrological experience, and that's natural.
No one should be ashamed of it.
The 12th century, when my own Saros series began, is the High Middle Ages. For what it is worth, I have always related in a strong, visceral way to that time. The Gothic cathedrals were rising. A kind of humanism entered Christianity, and with it, the onset of many of the very battles that I am still fighting in this lifetime, publicly and personally.
How The January 12222 Partial Solar Eclipse Will Affect You, Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Was I once there as a literate monk? I thought so — and Cluny was in active upheaval around the time of the lunar eclipse that started "my" series. I did not know about my specific astrological connection to that time until I met Murray Beauchamp. In common with many Westerners, my knowledge of Chinese history is pitiful, although it has improved somewhat since I began teaching there a decade ago. There is a weird familiarity about China for me, which leaves me with no doubt that I've had lifetimes there.
For some previously inexplicable reason, I lit up the first time I encountered the architecture, style and romantic history of the Song Dynasty — which I had never heard of before I began visiting that country. I felt sure that I'd had a lifetime in that period. You guessed it: the fingerprints of Saros Series are all over it. A quote from Wikipedia: "The Southern Song dynasty — refers to the period after the Song lost control of its northern half of China. During this time, the Song court retreated south of the Yangtze and established its capital at Lin'an now Hangzhou.
I've spent many happy days in Hangzhou, and felt a compelling sense of deja vu there, especially in the Buddhist temples in the hills above the city.
Solar Eclipse January 12222 Astrology
My heart is telling me that Murray Beauchamp is onto something with his research into the lunar Saros series. Did I live in one or both of those times?
- Horoscopes by Jamie Partridge;
- What the Eclipse Looked Like Near the Maximum Point.
- This Week in Astrology: January 20 to 26, .
If both, were my incarnations separated by some multiple of the Saros cycle? If I had to formulate a hypothesis, it would be this: that a lifetime or lifetimes spent around the beginning of the lunar Saros cycle reflected in the lunar eclipse just before your birth represent the roots of the karmic issues with which you are reckoning today. I would also like to pursue the obvious conjecture that we might tend to take birth around other subsequent lunar eclipses in "our" Saros series.
I've not yet explored that possibility. Like almost everything of lasting value in astrology, the answer will not come from one person, but rather from marrying the idea and the entire astrological community in the alchemical cauldron of time. We may know the answer in a generation or two, in other words — but only if we ask the question. In any case, it is something to ponder as the big—as—it—can—get Super Moon turns to copper on the night of January One last thought — the Lunar Saros series of which this upcoming eclipse is a member began on July 7, As time goes by, it will be interesting see if events around that historical period have any apparent karmic relevance to some of our friends who are in utero at the moment.
I also note that The Bank of England was founded in that year and it is the model on which most modern central banks are based.
