Lunar Eclipse in Cancer January 2020

Lunar Eclipse in Cancer January 2020

The Lunar Eclipse which takes place on 10th January 2020 in Cancer is the first Eclipse of the new decade! This Lunar Eclipse signals the end of a significant period in our love or professional life and brings things full circle. Endings are not always fun but they are liberating, regardless of the challenges that are likely to arise on the days around the Eclipse.

The Saturn – Pluto conjunction in Capricorn is the protagonist of the Eclipse period. Together, they conjunct the Sun in Capricorn as well, creating an explosive atmosphere and a difficulty to stay put when everything around us changes. Fear not though, this is simply a maturation process that is necessary for better things to come. This is not the time to act impulsively, but rather to carefully think through your next move and your stance towards what is going on around you, no matter how uncomfortable it might be short term.

The Lunar Eclipse in Cancer, coupled with the intense planetary activity in its opposite sign, Capricorn, will force you to break free from norms and patterns that have shaped your thinking and your daily life for years. Cancer’s call is that for more empathy, deeper love and true understanding. Unyielding attitudes and childlike behaviour will lead you nowhere from now on. It won’t be easy leaving your comfort zone and secure attachments, no matter how destructive they might have come to be. Progress, though, is only possible when you manage to break through all that.

The zodiac signs most affected by this Eclipse are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, particularly those born in the second and third decans. You, of all signs, will be confronted more intensely with the past and the choices that no longer work for you. One might say it is the end of an era, but also the dawn of a new, more exciting one. No star sign will be unaffected though, as each and every one of us has an area in our chart to be influenced by the current astrology. Let’s see how each star sign will be affected by the Lunar Eclipse in Cancer, on the 10th of January, 2020.


Dear Aries, during this period your focus will be on your home and family life, extending to your overall social circle. You will be asked to make important decisions as far as your family is concerned and change your attitude on specific matters around your home. This will help you bridge gaps with the people most important to you and get closer to them. It is not an easy feat, as you tend to be impulsive and quick to dismiss ideas opposing yours. If you do want to move forward under better terms though, you will have to reconsider your stance.

The Lunar Eclipse in Cancer will shine a light on a recent disappointment concerning someone close to you, dear Taurus. It becomes clear that things that have deprived you of your joy and zest for life no longer serve your path. Your entire world view is undergoing a big transformation and it is normal that this stirs up your emotional world as well. If you make the decision to cut toxic people and problematic relationships out of your life, things will only get better. Unfortunately, only the people who can follow you in your new ways of thought and share your renewed attitude towards life can stay. Choose wisely.

There are a lot of things happening in the background, even globally, so don’t rush into financial decisions now. Limiting your expenses to the bare minimum is a way out of what might seem like a dead end now. As far as your personal life is concerned, the dust settles and you are now clear about what and who you want to build a future with.

You might be scared as you simply hate changes in your intimate relationships, but aren’t you tired of not being truly happy? Look deep down inside, the answer is clearer than you think. Do you have the support, love and intimacy that you crave? Endings are not always a curse, when they set you free to fill your life with new people who actually care about you. It is a transformational period and you will not only come out of it stronger, but also more fulfilled and complete.

The past comes haunting you once more during the Lunar Eclipse, dear Leo. It’s as if you’re watching a movie –a favourite movie nonetheless- for the 10th time. As much as you’ve loved it in the past, you already know how it plays out and it feels mundane. Conflicts might arise as restlessness and boredom cast a shadow over your daily life. Resist the temptation to become judgmental and harsh towards others, as this is rarely the key to resolving problems. Instead, try to keep a cool head and dive deep inside for answers that will allow for a more mature confrontation. You need to try and separate what you actually need in the moment from mere obsession about things that are now irrelevant to your personal development.

Friendships, love, ambitions and creativity are in the forefront during the Lunar Eclipse in Cancer for you, Virgo. You’re being asked to shift your attention to what truly matters, what is important to you and what you wish to keep around in the new era of your life. The truth is you won’t be able to make strides of progress unless you rid your life of what is holding you back. No one can impose their will upon you anymore, so long as you really know what you want for yourself by now. If you keep focusing on the details though, the bigger picture might come as a shock eventually, forcing you to really take care of business. Move through this period with maturity and honesty and you shall be rewarded with a better future.


Your career-life balance will be your main area of focus during the Eclipse period, dear Libra. What surfaces now as far as your career is concerned needs your undivided attention to bear fruit. At the same time, people close to you might need more from you and you’ll need to accommodate if you wish to keep them around. You might feel restricted from what seem like unreasonable demands and you’ll need to consider what is actually your choice and what is being forced upon you. Try to be fair and considerate and you will end up striking that much needed balance eventually.  Old patterns of behaviour and trying to please everybody won’t serve you as well now though.

The Lunar Eclipse in Cancer brings your focus onto your closest relationships and the people who have shaped who you are over the last several years. You might be tempted to give someone a piece of your mind, however unless you do so with empathy and maturity, you won’t get the result you’re looking for. It is natural to feel pressured or restricted when you have been focusing on the needs of others for so long. But to meet your own you first need to be clear and truthful about what they are and who can help you do that. Adulthood is no easy feat. Unless you learn to take care of yourself, you’ll never feel complete and content with what others can offer. Once you’re free from unrealistic expectations, the path will be clear for new goals to arise and excite you once more.

Whatever has caused you to feel insecure professionally or financially comes to light now, with this Eclipse in Cancer. You might have tried to hide things under the carpet and pretend they’re not important, but you can’t turn a blind eye any more. Positive things can come out of this tumultuous period, but only if you deal with things right here and now. Try to overcome your tendency to hide away from responsibility, it will only make things worse if you procrastinate further now. A challenge you’ve been avoiding, be it a partnership or going through with a project, could actually be hiding a golden opportunity for further growth and greater stability in work or money matters. So you can either take things in your own hands and reveal those opportunities, or let someone else take the lead and miss out eventually.

Dear Capricorn, you are the protagonist in the astrology lately and the Lunar Eclipse in Cancer further establishes the fact. Are you ready to let go of patterns that no longer serve you or not quite yet? What are you waiting for? Everything around you is pushing you to reevaluate your relationships and your stance, but you keep holding onto what you’re used to, even if it’s getting increasingly uncomfortable. Forcing your way through challenges is one way to handle things. But the Eclipse in Cancer is coming to show you a gentler, more empathetic approach. It is up to you how you want to handle things of course, but remember that what you resist persists. The harder your resistance at this time, the deeper the ruptures will be with those around you. On the bright side, if you change your attitude and soften your approach, there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow…
