Counterpoint: 2/9 Lunar Eclipse

Our powerful January 26th Solar Eclipse is balanced with a Lunar Eclipse as the Sun transits Aquarius. As always, astrologer Allison Rae delineates what we need to know now in poetic prose. Here's how to prepare for Monday's magic:

"This penumbral eclipse of the Moon will be visible from eastern Europe and Africa, Asia and most of North America.

"During this eclipse, the Moon will appear to darken as the Earth blocks the reflected light of the Sun. In Leo, the Full Moon illuminates the unconscious, emotional desires and needs of the individual self within the broader context of the collective, represented by the Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Chiron and Neptune in Aquarius. With Chiron and Neptune conjunct the Sun, profound emotional and spiritual healing is possible. For many, balancing the needs of the self with our dharmic calling will be highlighted at this eclipse. This alignment will also illuminate fears connected with stepping into your power and more fully embodying divine light. What's been lurking in the darkness of the subconscious is brought into the light."

She recommends ways to anchor these energies:

"Reserve time for prayer and meditation during these special alignments. The energies are ripe for seeding the Aquarian Age consciousness of humanitarian service, love and equality within the Earth grid. This is also an excellent time to put forth your intentions to embody your path of service more fully at this time of transition on Earth.

"To maintain balance and clarity during eclipse periods, eat root vegetables and dark, leafy greens. Meditate daily. Connect with natural rhythms by spending time in nature, and practicing yoga, t'ai chi or xi gong. Anchor the energies with drumming. Honor your body's needs for nourishment and rest. Keep a journal of messages and impressions that come into your awareness."
