A Note from Susan Miller
I was thinking of an interesting question today. What quality do you have now that when you were little, growing up, you never assumed you’d have in you? It may be that as you matured, you took on new facets to your personality that you found favorable, and were surprised to say were part of you. That has happened to me…
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
You have a big, exciting cosmic event that will take your attention to distant points, thanks to a lunar eclipse that just occurred January 31 in Leo 12 degrees. This eclipse also brilliantly lit your third house of travel and communication, and it is still strong as you enter February. You are likely to be very busy, with a blast of news coming in all at once.
Full moons always stir up lots of activity, but a full moon eclipse has the energy of three full moons rolled into one. Whatever is going on looks like it’s major and important to your future. As the month takes off, you also seem to be working up against a deadline, but don’t worry – you will meet that target if you keep the eye on the ball.
You will feel the effects of the January 31 eclipse during the first week of February, or, if you say not too much is happening, then news will be delayed to the very start of March (February being a short month), as some eclipses deliver their news one month to the day later (plus or minus four days).
This eclipse may find you finishing up a long manuscript, doing a self-promotion mailing, or approving an advertising campaign, seeing your team finish work on your new app, or you may read about yourself in the press – the publicity looks positive. If you are an actor, after auditioning, you may now hear you have won the part. Lots will be going on, and much of it will center on your ability to communicate clearly and in a compelling style.
Your third house, which is so lit up, rules contracts too, so your lawyer may come to you and say a certain document is ready to sign. I say give it a few days after any eclipse to make the final agreement, because so much cosmic dust is kicked up at the time, it’s hard to think – or see – clearly.
It is never wise to make big initiations on the very date of an eclipse if you can help it. Respond but do not initiate – that’s the rule. I realize this is a fine line, but said another way, respond to others’ actions or offers, but don’t plan to initiate the action or offer yourself. If you make an important initiation at or very close to an eclipse, you will find that things don’t go as planned, as with eclipses there is always a twist.
This full moon eclipse of January 31 that lights your third house will also put a spotlight on a member of your family – your sister, brother, or cousin. You may want to make a call to check in for news. Or, it may be that you are doing something with your sibling, such as to take a trip together or rent a vacation cottage for later in the year. There are many possibilities.
I do feel you will do well under this eclipse, because it is falling in Leo, a fire sign that blends beautifully with your air-sign element. Also this eclipse is in perfect angle to Mars in Sagittarius, indicating a middleman, partner, agent, manager, publicist, writing partner, lawyer, spouse, accountant, or other person you collaborate with closely will prove to be a gem. You seem to need this partner to help you see the benefits of this full moon eclipse. (If you are the publicist, agent, or manager, the talent you represent will shine like a diamond, and you will benefit from your association with this person.)
