Astrology/Numerology for 1/31/18
1/31/18 is the number 7. Only by looking at the past can you create better strategies for the future. The exploration of knowledge and information gives you the ability to compare and analyze objectively and come up with more unified and complete solutions. If you do not study history or the choices and decisions you have made, you are doomed to repeat patterns again and again. When people say to me, “Why does this keep happening to me?” It is always a lesson that they tried to push away and have not fully looked at and seen the hidden meaning or message. With today being a number 7, take a look at the repeating patterns that happen in your life and use that amazing mind of yours to seen and acknowledge the patterns that are repeating. Then notice why you keep falling into those patterns and repeating the same behavior. All you can do is learn to walk away from dysfunction and make a completely different choice and learn from that steps of that choice if the outcome improves your awareness and situation. Why do you do certain things? Why do you make that particular choice? What does that choice give you? Does it make you feel like a good person to keep trying again and again to do a particular action or make a particular choice. Perhaps you have to face being less nice and to be honest. Perhaps you have to learn that being nice all the time is the doorway to co-dependency. That choice creates resentment and more dysfunction over time.
The Full Moon on January 31 is both a Lunar Eclipse, a Blue Moon, and a Super Moon. This Full Moon is in Leo. Expect your emotions to be heightened and everything is going to feel more activated and intense. If you wake up early in the western USA and Hawaii you may get to see the total eclipse of the Moon. This eclipse makes you reflect back to last August 7 when there was another lunar eclipse at almost the opposite degree of this eclipse. Over this past six-month period, you have been pulled apart to gain perspective and to make choices that serve who you are becoming. You are seeking wholeness. Leo asks you to open your heart and express your passionate self and the creativity that is inside trying to get out. It is time to take back control into some area of your life. Aquarius steps back to see the bigger picture and then hold the higher ideal for all to see. Aquarius creates win-win environments and urges people to play nicely together for the greater good in spite of different philosophies (politics, religion, race, etc.). Also, today and going to February 17, the communications planet Mercury travels through Aquarius. This is a highly social time and a moment for reaching out to new friends and to consider how you can bring your invention to market. Because ambitious Mars recently moved into Sagittarius until the middle of March, you must assert your ambition to bring expansive ideas and dreams into reality. This eclipse occurs in the sign of Leo, pushing emotions to the surface and pressing you to look more closely at what you need, what you lack, and what you really want. Epiphanies are likely at this time as you become acutely aware of your true feelings on a particular matter. You may feel as if there is something you are missing, and this new awareness can propel you into some clarifying action. Eclipses are tied to changing circumstances. However, you are usually the ones to precipitate or to attract changes because your inner guides know that you need it. With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic illumination is designed to occur in your own life. This Lunar Eclipse is part of a set of eclipses occurring along the Leo-Aquarius axis that will complete in January 2019. Also, today, Mercury enters Aquarius, where it will transit until February 17. When Mercury is in Aquarius, you seek new ways to see and do things. It is time to be more progressive and objective in how you think a problem through. Your communication and thought patterns are spontaneous and liberal and perhaps fragmented at times. Inventive thinking is at a peak during this cycle. The Moon spends all day in the creative sign of Leo, adding energy, illumination, and intensity to the already powerful light shifts happening.
Valentine’s Day is the day before a solar eclipse in friendly Aquarius. It is best to not initiate important new projects days just before a solar eclipse. Choices made during that time are thought to have an unknown or karmic energy implication to them. So, (I hate to disappoint you but….) it is not the best day for marriage or marriage proposals this year. The Moon is in Aquarius on Valentine’s Day, and this is a better time for friendships and sharing the vision for your life. Be certain you are looking at your relationships (plus the rest of your life) for where they are now rather than getting caught up in fantasy thinking. Venus will be traveling through Pisces, February 10- March 6, so remember to not get lost in illusion. The positive side of this combination is to open your imagination to new possibilities and practice compassion in your world. A final note on the solar eclipse is that it is positioned exactly opposite the total solar eclipse in Leo last August. Consider where you are now compared to where you were in August 2017 and the emotions and choices that dictated your actions. An example is that issues with North Korea were fiery, dramatic, and prideful as they were in Leo then. Hopefully, this cool and detached Aquarian energy, will bring more level heads into the choices and decision making strategies going forward. February is a time to keep your heart open but stay detached from the drama.
The fears you don’t face become your limits.
The anger you don’t face becomes your prejudices.
The wounding you don’t face becomes your armor.
The rage you don’t face becomes superiority.
The shadow you don’t face becomes war.
And the unwillingness you have
to change becomes social collapse.
