Another Look from last month: January 31 Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse
The second full moon in a month is also referred to as a “Blue Moon.” The January 31, 2018 full moon may look redder, than blue, however, due to the Lunar Eclipse. https://www.timeanddate.com/astronomy/moon/blue-moon.html
The January 31 eclipse will be at 11 degrees Leo 37 minutes. If you follow astrology, look to see where and how this falls in your personal chart. According to Madeline Gerwick, this eclipse will be associated with pleasant surprises! Isn’t this nice? Perhaps you’ll get some good news, experience a lucky break, feel exceptionally happy, or something similar. A secondary meaning of this eclipse is related to setting aside work and enjoying the moment. That’s exactly what I’ll be doing!

Tune to January’s Intentions with the January 31 Full Moon and Eclipse
If you set intentions with the January 16th new moon, tune in and watch how they emerge this month. New moons are when you seed your desires. Then they take root for two weeks and the results begin to come to light with the next full moon.
The January 16th new moon in Capricorn was related to your long-term vision and direction, your responsibilities, and bringing structure to your goals and dreams. The associated area was the Fame gau, the center-back of your home, office or workspace, and every room in your home or business.
The Fame gua also relates to your heart, eyes, brain, blood, glands, small intestine and circulation and how you are viewed publicly. If you’d like to develop business, have more charisma, be more well-known or you’d like more publicity toward any endeavor, enhance the Fame gua in your home, every room in your home and your workspace. This is the area to enhance if you’d like to strengthen your heart or brain, or bring more heart energy or clarity to your life and relationships.
We’re in Eclipse Season!
We have a lunar eclipse on January 31 and a solar eclipse on February 15. Lunar eclipses happen on full moons and solar eclipses occur with new moons. The February 15th new moon and solar eclipse usher in Chinese New Year (Feb 16th).
Since an eclipse accompanies the January 31 full moon, even more things may come to light. This set of eclipses is associated with pleasant surprises. It could be a happy event, sudden luck, something nice and unexpected, that sort of thing.
Eclipse windows open 30 days before an eclipse and last until 30 days after. Two very lucky people were in eclipse energy when they won the recent huge lottery jackpots on January 5th and 6th!
February Area of Focus: The Center or Heart of your Home
The February 15th new moon and solar eclipse is in the sign of Pisces. This correlates with the Center of your home and workspace or the Health gua. The timing is amazing. I will have recently returned from my month-long health retreat and I’ll be refreshing my home for the new year.
The Center of your home is very important. It sets the tone for your space. The energy in the Center of your home permeates throughout your entire space. If it’s clear and calm energy, that is what spreads. If it’s cluttered and blocked energy, your home or workspace may feel stuck and stagnant. If the energy feels too rushed or fast-paced, an anxious and unsettled feeling may take over. Take the opportunity this month and set your intention for the coming year by working with the Center of your home, office or business.
Tips for Adjusting the Center of Your Home, Office or Business
Make the Center of your home or workspace as clear and spacious as you can. Remove all clutter. I remind you of this every month because we all have clutter to one degree or another. Some have more than others. Your possessions need continual care and maintenance. When they sit idle, without attention, use or love, they lose life force and the chi depletes.
Less turns out to be more. When you have less to care for, you can provide more attention. This month, make the Center of your space the focus of your attention. Clear it out and spruce it up!
The Center relates to Health and Earth Energy
The Center of your space relates to health and is associated with Earth energy. Earth energy is represented by the colors yellow, brown or earth tones; square shapes; and pottery, shells and objects made from clay, mud or earth. Earth energy is strengthened by Fire and weakened by Metal. Too much Water energy muddies things and an excess of Wood energy breaks right through the Earth (envision tree roots popping through the ground).
In addition to impacting overall health, the Center of your space also influences the energy of your immune system, infectious diseases, tumors, fevers, circulation problems, blood sugar issues, blood pressure, gall bladder, spleen, pancreas, lymph and nervous system. Extremes and excess, worry, stress, delusions and not feeling grounded are attributed to imbalances in the Center of your space as well.
The Heart of Your Home
February 14th is Valentine’s Day. Since the Center also represents the heart of your home, it’s a good month to energize it to send loving energy throughout your space.
Take the first two weeks of February to clean and energize your home, with a focus on strengthening the energy in the Center. Then set new intentions for health and well-being with the February 15th new moon. You can see how these take shape beginning with the March 1 full moon.
