January 31, 2018 Super Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Blue Moon

Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse
January 31, 2018 @ 1:28 p.m. GMT
Moon is Leo, 11° 37'

Lunar Eclipse Super Blood Moon

This full moon is the second in the month for most of the world, will appear larger in the sky because the moon is positioned closer to Earth, and will be a total lunar eclipse for approximately one-third of the world to see, where the sky is clear.

The full moon in Leo tends to be associated with children, matters involving the heart, feelings of loyalty, and expressing our creative side. 

I have heard so many different descriptions of this Lunar Eclipse; the Super Blue Blood Moon  and the Super Blue Moon Eclipse are the two most common. Regardless of what we call it, this is not a routine moon event. Even more rare than a blue moon.

There still are no planetary retrograde motions for another month. Make good use of the productivity associated on so many different levels, but don't get burned out trying to do too much.

The partial Solar Eclipse on February 15 will also be the Chinese New Year.
