A lunar eclipse will take place on January 31, 2018 at 7:36 a.m. CST in 12° Leo. It terms of personal astrology, it doesn't matter that it's a super moon or a blood moon or a blue moon. What matters is that when the moon is involved it still only means one main thing for us all: our heightened emotions and how we handle them.
To be honest, there's a lot of social fun that comes with the emphasis on the sign of Leo and it's opposite Aquarius. It's both a good time to get together with longtime friends and a good time to make new ones. Pay attention to the people you meet for the first time over the next few days. Make a note in your journal of their names and how you met. They may gain importance in your life in the months to come.
Leo energy is also very creative. Give yourself the time to express yourself creatively or artistically in some way.
Conflict arises with situations that pit old ideas against new ones. Also people or circumstances that threaten old habit patterns can be challenging. Logic will not help in an argument when people have already taken sides. Appropriate humor or a Zen koan type story may be more helpful. (Sidetrack: Have you read Zen Flesh, Zen Bones? It's filled with wonderful Zen stories that give your mind a refresh.) Take a walk or dance to music or play a fun board (or video) game with your opposition.
