The Supermoon Lunar Eclipse of January 20 -21, 2019
By Dikki-Jo Mullen, Astrologer
This rare celestial event spans 9:37 pm EST on January 20 through January 21, 1:51 am EST. The totality will be at 12:16 am EST. The best time, hoping the sky is clear, for Moon gazing will be from about 11:42 pm until just after midnight on January 20-21, Sunday night to the wee hours on Monday. The Moon will be huge and bright, as a Supermoon is so much closer to the Earth than usual. Colored by the sun’ s rays, a red color will wash over the Moon. This might be a dark red or a brighter hue, to be revealed that night. Some say blood is spilled in the month following a Blood Moon. The Storm Moon is one of the names given to this January Full Moon. The eclipse will be at 0 degrees of Leo 52’. Creativity, expressing the personality and exploring one’s heart’s desires are the keynotes. Look at where this zodiacal degree falls in your own horoscope for more specific insights. Eclipses generate surprises and the unpredictable. Be flexible and ready to change to make the best of an eclipse cycle. It is like a firecracker and upsets the status quo. This Full Moon eclipse of January, 2019 will conjoin the Moon’s North Node which is thought to be favorable in its eventual outcome.

Year of the Earth Boar
February 5, 2019 – January 24, 2020
Chinese Astrology Lunar Year 4717

By Dikki-Jo Mullen
Chinese Astrology is unique among the world‘s zodiac calendars in that it follows a cycle of twelve years. Each year is associated with a different animal. This is the calendar followed throughout The Orient, from China to Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Korea, etc. and is probably familiar to a larger segment of the Earth’s population than any other time table. It began almost 5000 years ago with Buddha’s legendary birthday party. All of the animals were invited. The twelve who came were each gifted with a year along with the promise that they would be the animals to hide in the hearts of those born that year. Five elements (fire, water, metal, earth and wood) distinguish the years. Every sixty years the cyclical pattern of element-animal pairs repeats.
The Boar or Pig was the last of the twelve animals to arrive at the gathering and to be rewarded by Buddha with a stewardship. Ever since the Boar has feared being late and has no patience with tardiness or those who waste valuable time. It doesn’t do to wait until the last minute to complete projects this year. It will be worthwhile to arrive in plenty of time for appointments.
The Chinese New Year begins at the 2nd New Moon following the winter solstice, in late January or early February. The date changes from year to year, occurring from late January to mid- February.
Long respected and cherished as one of the most precious of animals the Pig, or
Boar, symbolizes practicality combined with creativity. Values, particularly those of truth, nobility and chivalry, are upheld. Creativity, especially in regard to enhancing security, will be important. The Earth Boar, also dubbed “The Pig in the Forest ”, is peace loving, determined, and vulnerable to betrayal. Expect to encounter an insistence upon quality in dealings this year. There is a love of refinement, creature comforts and a tendency to be indulgent. Being well informed about current events and acquiring useful knowledge will be a priority. Devotion to studies and scrupulous honesty pave the pathway to greater personal success during a Boar year.
Boar people are beloved for their kindness, loyalty and sincerity. They do find dishonesty hard to forgive. Courageous and headstrong, Boars seldom deter once they set upon a course of action. Piggy’s preference is for serenity and reveling in beautiful, even opulent, surroundings. Good manners, good taste and classiness are priorities. In their innermost hearts those born during a Boar year want all to be well and comfortable on Earth. Understand that theirs is not a snobbish nature. It is one of ultimate refinement.
