What is a full moon eclipse?
Also known as a “wolf” moon or a “great spirit” moon, January 2019’s full moon marks the first full moon of the new year and set to shake up all kinds of reflection and resolution.

Why is the January 2019 full moon such a big deal?
This moon, which took place on the 21st of January, is particularly special because it was a super moon undergoing a total lunar eclipse. The moon passed into the shadow of the Earth giving it a red glow – which is where the name ‘blood moon’ comes from. The last time a blood moon occurred was in July 2018.

“We’re going into this unusual lull in total lunar eclipses over the next couple of years,” Tom Kerss, an astronomer from the Royal Observatory Greenwich tells The Guardian.

“So this is a really good one to catch as it’s going to be a long time before you catch another one like this – we will have other lunar eclipses, we just won’t have anything quite as spectacular until May 2021.”

Astrologer Lisa Stardust told Bustle, this full moon in Leo “will bring inner truths to light, elevating our desire for autonomy and independence,” for all of us, no matter what our sign is.

This moon will be the first of three supermoons scheduled for 2019. You won’t have to wait long until the next one (19 February).

What does the full moon total lunar eclipse mean for your star sign?
Basically, it means dedicate some alone time to yourself and let all of your emotions and thoughts settle in their own space. However, because the full moon is in Leo, the shift will affect some star signs more than others; namely Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.

These are Miss FQ’s favourite astrological sources:

WEEKLY TAROT READING 🔮 This week is governed by the Death card, the 3 of Cups and the 4 of Cups. 🔮 For those of you who found themselves single for most of 2018, this week’s cards show some headway in the area of new love and relationships. This is not to say that Mr. or Mrs. Awesome-Perfect-Amazing is going to fall into your lap and into your heart this week, but that your perception around finding a match will change. It’s probable that your checklist is now out-of-date and you’ll decide that finding that perfect someone doesn’t need to be a difficult task, but a simple road to follow. 🛣 With this inner change will come some hard realities. You might have to face the facts and own-up to any negative actions or reactions that you had in past relationships, or towards other singletons who took an interest in you in the past. Were you trying to be too cool? Mysteriously aloof? Sarcastically funny? or were you so insecure about how you looked that you forgot to accept compliments with grace? All these past limitations and expectations that you put on yourself will change and you’ll be able to go into the mine field which is the dating scene with much more confidence, knowing that the right person will come along soon. 💜 This is manifestation at its best, and this law of attraction is going to be at its best this week, particularly surrounding love (you Scorpio sun signs and moons signs are going to feel it the most this week!). If you are already in a relationship make sure that you bring a bit of spark back in. Go on a date somewhere new or try something exciting together. Things may have stagnated for a while and they’ll need a bit of a pick-me-up. 🔮 Good health is on the agenda this week and it would be a prime time to take on a new hobby which involves exercise or cooking. There are prizes, in all forms, to be won this week and the weekend will see a time for celebration and the coming together of everyone. Enjoy your well all! #prediction #tarot #tarottalk #minorarcana #majorarcana #insight #futurepredictions #answers #pentacles #wands #cups #swords #weeklytarot #tarotcards #worldevents

Oracle Card of the Day for MONDAY January 21, 2019: White Tara – sensitivity. A very appropriate card for today’s supermoon/lunar eclipse! As much as you can, try to limit exposure to harsh or provoking situations today, as you’re likely to be extra sensitive energetically. Triggers are unique to you but might be negative “whingey” types, gossipy circles, the news, etc. For some of you, this is about sensitivities to food, chemicals or clutter in your environment or lifestyle – trust your intuition on whether that relates to you. Have a wonderful day xx 🙏 #angels #angelcards #empath #sensitive #energy *This guidance is general; trust your intuition on what is right for you.
