Lunar Eclipse January 2020 ~ Cellmates?

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse January 10 2020 falls at 20º Cancer. Lunar Eclipse January 2020 astrology triggers the Capricorn stellium and opposite Mercury. Lunar Eclipse healing crystal is Prehnite with Epidote. Fixed Star is Castor in constellation Gemini. Lunar Eclipse tarot card is the 4 Of Cups.

The Lunar eclipse January 2020 will fall on the exact same degree as the July 12 Solar Eclipse 2018 . That time the eclipse, was opposite Pluto exactly making it a Hades moon. This time this lunar eclipse will be exact opposite Mercury the trickster, but it also conjoins Ceres, Saturn and Pluto. The last Solar eclipse was actually in Capricorn but this one really triggers the activates the grand stellium in Capricorn far more strongly by opposition.

Lunar Eclipse In Cancer Decan 3

This Moon falls in Cancer which it rules and is therefore very strong. This decan is actually ruled by the Moon in the Chaldean system and is the Pisces triplicity in the Vedic system so extra watery and tide-pulling. Volatile moods, devotion, extreme passion and deep intuition. Inside there might be a tempest raging, but at this time it is vital to display a neutral mask. If we are bitten at this lunar Eclipse we will not be twice, but thrice shy! So under the surface of this lunation, the Gemini twins are playing tug-of-war.

Even though the eclipse is technically  in tropical Cancer, this lunar Eclipse January falls in the decan that contains the twin stars of Castor and Pollux. So the energy is very bi-polar, where we find it hard to make a decision. The jump between playing the angel and devil in the collective can be quite striking too. Those touched by this full moon lunar Eclipse might have to make the best of a reckless choice made in ‘devil’ mode.

This post contains my notes for this Lunar Eclipse January 2020
. The video pulls all the elements together and summarises the lunation’s energy and uses. I also talk about relevant moon/matrix issues that are pertinent to the current moon ‘spell’ and how we can best heal from them.

Lunar Eclipse Fixed Star ~ Castor

Moon on Castor 20º “Timid, sensitive, lacks confidence, occult interest and psychic ability, blindness, injuries to the face, disgrace, stabs, wounds (operations nowadays), imprisonment.” [1] “The therapeutic use of humour, to be involved in education; a desire to bring stories to others. To hope that everything will be alright. To disbelieve bad news.” [2]

Castor is the supposedly ‘good’ twin and was the horse trainer. He holds a harp in his hand so has musical talent and artistry. Sophisticated Castor was refined and civilised but still got into scrapes with his wilder brother, however. The influence of the dark side is never far away, for Robson say although

“It gives distinction, a keen intellect, success in law and many travels, fondness for horses, sudden fame and honor”….This great success can often be followed by “loss of fortune and disgrace, sickness, trouble and great affliction. Its natives are said to be mischievous and prone to violence.” 

At this time we have to be careful about the company we keep. The lunar influence of the decan makes us extra sensitive to  our environment. This sensitivity is great for psychic ability but it also means we could give into peer pressure far too easily. Eric Morse says:

“ Castor is also noted in natal astrology for proneness to mental breakdowns and neurotic distress. People with this star prominent and well aspected are exceptionally gifted intellectually. These geniuses often need help in not letting their concern for others go ‘over the top’, however” [3]

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse December ~ Tarot Card

Solar Eclipse 4 cupsThe Tarot card associated with this decan is the 4 of Cups. The ambivalence shown in this card fits well with the polarisation of this decan. A card of boredom and apathy on the one hand and daydreaming and fantasizing on the other. Maybe this card longs for the dramatic mood swings that govern this decan.

“The Four of Cups generally brings with it the blues and moodiness. (Cancer decan 3 is the moodiest, moon-ruled decan) In some cases it can highlight depression…you may have lost touch with reality and are totally ungrounded. You may have allowed yourself to indulge in daydreams and fantasies and have become too idealistic imaging life to be a certain way.”

Karmically this card can mean too many lives have been spent procrastinating, and waiting for the 100% perfect person or opportunity to come along. It ” can sometimes simply highlight the fact that you are too tied up in your own little world, too self-absorbed and too self-centred. You may feel that the whole universe revolves around you and have no time for other people’s problems or feelings. You may seem negative to others and see the ‘glass as half empty’ in this negative state of mind.” ~ Teachmetarot

Lunar Eclipse January Healing

To help release emotion and tears at this lunar eclipse January 2020 (without causing a full-scale flood!) vaccinate yourself by taking a small dose of Cancer decan 3 energy. If your ascendant, Sun or Moon are in the cardinal signs decan 3 you might find that you burst into tears at the slightest provocation. To avoid flipping too fast from soppy to iceberg, try a relaxing bath with a Cancer decan 3 theme.

Useful healing materials and props: The 4 of cups to gaze at, cucumber & mint to eat, white roses to adorn your table, Prehnite with Epidote crystal to hold, music in the key of G# to listen, Myrrh, Rose and Hibiscus essential oils in a bath.

Lunar Eclipse Crystal ~ Prehnite With Epidote

“Prehnite promotes unconditional love and stimulates spiritual growth. It is a wonderful stone for bringing peace, joy, and harmony into one’s life. Epidote is used to give yourself protection from physical harm when engaged in dangerous pursuits. It is also used to help someone injured by either physical or mental trauma. It sooths, protects, and guards.” ~

Prehnite ” is a stone for dreaming and remembering, so if you would like to enhance this, keep a piece under your pillow… one of its strengths is that it quietens the mind. It helps to settle you down, especially if you are prone to talk excessively. This stone is helpful if kept in the bedroom as its vibration will also alleviate nightmares, and help you to release deep fears. Sometimes this fear is of a karmic nature, and Prehnite will help you to release these past issues that are causing your current concerns.” ~

“Epidote has within it an energy that aids you to have the courage to let go of the things that are holding you back from living the life of your dreams. As you begin to embrace the boldness of spirit that Epidote brings to you, this will help you to have a greater knowledge of who you really are and your spiritual purpose…. Epidote is a stone that is known to effect different people in different ways.  How you are affected by its energy, may to some degree depend on your predominant way of thinking. It’s vibration is known to bring you more of the same.” ~

So with Epidote if you are a negative person, it will make you even more negative, but it will also bring to your attention the need for more positive thinking. On the other hand if you are a positive soul it will make you even more positive!  So it is not really recommended to use pure Epidote at this lunar eclipse. However used within Prehnite, Epidote should bring a balance and prevent swinging too far to the negative if you are on the melancholic side. Generally this blend should give the right amount of boldness tempered with the protection vibration of Prehnite.

The 3rd Face Of Cancer

“A celhafe with a snake in his hand, who has golden chains before him. This is a face of running, riding, and acquisition by means of wars, lawsuits and conflict.” ~ Picatrix

Lunar eclipse January 2020


A Lunar Eclipse is a super menstrual, wolf-howler version of a full moon. It will do a great job of purging and releasing things from our lives that no longer serve our higher selves.

The bright light of the sun throws a spotlight on our subconscious to illuminate any issues within our primary relationships that have been festering there since the previous Solar Eclipse. With the Lunar eclipse, the earth comes between the Sun and the moon. Sometimes we get a blood red moon as the earth’s shadow slowly creeps across its crater face….

Eclipse Meaning for all signs!

This is a penumbral Lunar eclipse so only a very subtle shadow is seen over the moon and not the red one that we usually get. This subtle eclipse will be most visible in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, Much of North America, East in South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean and the Arctic. Lunar eclipse Shadow path.

  1. I have Saturn at 20.10 Cancer (I remember the solar eclipse in 2018 well!) but at this lunar eclipse I also have all the opposing planets in Capricorn conjunct my solar arc progressed Ascendant at 22 degrees Capricorn and all in my Saturn ruled third house! I’m not sure what this all means collectively and would appreciate any comments on this. I’ve been unwell since New Year although the healing process has given me much time for reflection. I’m now in numerology number 9 year (one of completion?)

  2. Thank you for your work, effort and skills. I personally have a stellium in Capricorn. Sun, Moon, Saturn and Jupiter.
    I know this is a very divine time and will roll with it.
    My divine gifts of service and many of the Claires ( voyant, sentient and gustant), have become very heightened.
    I feel I have waited all my lifetimes just for this alignment, and I have.
    This is also my second solar return and I am in the third décan.
    Again thank you for sharing your talents and gifts in such a unique way.
