Partial Eclipse of the Sun on January 5, 2019

Partial Eclipse of the Sun
January 5, 2019
5:28P PT/8:28P ET

Though the accompanying image is that of at Total Eclipse of the Sun (because we are still under the influence of the August 21, 2017, Total Solar Eclipse), the Partial Solar Eclipse of January 5, 2019, complicates the Energy Influences of the August 2017 Total Solar Eclipse. We will be under the influence of the next Total Solar Eclipse beginning July 2, 2019.

The Partial Solar Eclipse of January 5, 2019, was visible in western-most Alaska, northeastern China, Mongolia, Japan, northern Micronesia, and eastern Russia. (Source: Jim Maynard calendars).

Astrologically, this Partial Solar Eclipse was at 15° Capricorn 25′.  In your natal chart, the House where you have 15 Capricorn is being “inspected”/”reviewed” for how well you’ve done in that area of your life since the Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017.  This area of your life is no doubt screaming for attention if there are unresolved issues or a crisis. This is the area of your life in which there’s a need to expand the “space” you currently occupy: physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually, according to the Energy Influences of the Sign of Capricorn, an Earth Element.

I invite you to contact me regarding how you might handle this “review/test” of your actions relative to the area of life in Solar focus.

 The energy of the opposite House in the Sign of Cancer should be helpful in resolving any “crisis” there may be in the Capricorn House.  We have until January 21st, this year, to give adequate attention to these matters, and at that time we will be tested by the public response to  action taken since this January 5th Partial Solar Eclipse.

The effects of the August 21, 2017, Total Solar Eclipse continue to affect us individually and collectively.  Positive possibilities and vulnerabilities are likely…especially for the Leo whose Sun is within a 5° orb on either side of this Eclipse, which is at 28° Leo 53′.  That said, wherever one has the Sign of Leo in the birth chart, the objective should be to minimize the fire and accentuate the spirit and personal fixed nature of the Leo Sign.  That may well mean that we live with whatever crisis we have to face, and just strive to maintain the status quo, unless it’s a medical emergency. Some of the positives to emphasize include: actions related to children, picnics, creative self-expression, acting on stage and or in films, videos, or YouTube; romance and love-making, other physical pleasures, entertainment, games, parties, sports, stock market speculation, building a sunroom or sun porch. Some of the negatives to avoid include: arrogance, lies, gambling, heat exhaustion, sunstroke, heart ailments and disease, inflammatory diseases, infections, political intrigue, political downfall.

The effects of this Solar Eclipse at 28º Leo 53′ will be with us (and piled on) until the Total Solar Eclipse in July 2019.  If we are aware of the personal and collective opportunities and challenges brought by the Total Solar Eclipse, the Partial Solar Eclipse in January 2019, can take some of the glare off us, individually and collectively, on Earth.

For a solar eclipse to occur the Sun and Moon must be conjunct — occupying the same place in space (as in this case) or opposite the Sun Sign at the time of the Eclipse.  The term designated for the Moon, at the time of the Eclipse, is the New Moon. While it does not mean we have a solar eclipse at every New Moon, we cannot have a solar eclipse without a New Moon. The magnetic pull of the Sun and Moon eclipsing the Earth is strong enough for the Earth to receive the Energy of the Sun sign in which the solar eclipse occurs.  This, then, is the Energy of the collective UNconscious that needs active expression on Earth through people born under the sign of the Eclipse (in this case Leo), as their responsibility to the collective whole.

Of course a Solar Eclipse affects weather patterns, as well.  Under the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo — being a Fire sign — there are likely to be more wild fires, Sun flairs, electrical fires, and arson of all kinds.

There is more to teach under this Solar Eclipse, and there is greater awareness to gain for all Sun Signs.  Should you wish to have a more specific Reading as to the effects of this Total Solar Eclipse on your birth chart, regardless of your Sun Sign, I will look forward to being of service. I invite you to contact me.
