Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
Full Moon in Gemini/Cancer
January 10/11, 2020
By Maharani Rutan©
On January 10, 2020, at 12:07 pm EST, 9:02pm PST will be our next event. This is not a total eclipse, rather, a Penumbra which often occurs where there is no straight light between the Earth, Moon, and the Sun. In this article I will not go into the scientific reasoning or analysis, rather I will look at this eclipse from a humanistic approach. To explain, not only the occurrence of human behavior but also environmental, political, and possible structural changes that will change our society in 6 months.
The Penumbral Lunar eclipse begins its motion at 12:07 pm, along with a Gemini/Cancer Full moon at 20 degrees depending on the orb. Following behind will be the full moon which could be slightly visible at 2:23pm EST
The visibility of this eclipse will light the sky for almost the entirety of Australia where fires have rippled the wildlife and its people, Asia where earthquakes have changed many cities in previous years, and Russia, China, and Japan who have ongoing nuclear issues on the horizon. Included are India and U.K who have gone through economic changes. Finally, Hungary, Italy, France, Greece, Spain and South Africa are also part of this eclipse, which means that within 6 months these countries will go through a transformation either naturally or forcefully.
The beauty of this moon also has its significance as the Northern Regions identify this moon as the Old Moon and the Southerner Regions call it a Thunder Moon. Surely the southerners may have it correct as I do predict plenty of rain, snow, and issues of water damage to some countries and cities. I also would not be surprised if plenty of wind is also in the mix.
It has been theorized by VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories) that many of the effects of the eclipse could be felt as early as 7 days prior to the eclipse (January 6, 2020) and 6 months after (July 10, 2020). It is also important to note that in my 2020 prediction I did state some issues that are bound to be brought up during this eclipse. Read more here.
As my 2018 and 2019 predictions have unfolded, I would not be surprised if new things become evident during this eclipse. One thing for certain, something that we may have planted in July 2018 is now about to get off the ground or completely shut itself out through new discoveries.
This Lunar Eclipse and Full moon will influence people with mutable signs (Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces, and Virgo) and Cardinal signs (Cancer, Capricorn, Libra, and Aries), including those that have any of those signs in their chart.
To fully gain the probable in the lunar eclipse, analyze all the houses in your VPAT chart. Where the Moon is, we can antagonize our friends with old conducts and doubts, and where the Sun is, we may discover the resources to hold or release from whatever oppression we experience.
These people will have a lot of difficulty in sorting out their view of themselves with the feelings they have. Weakening to distinguish that something or someone is not what it or they seem, and it is not as passionately connected as they had assumed. It is often said to understand what we will feel during the eclipse, particularly the ones that are geared to change (Cancer and Gemini) we must think back to how life was in 2001, 2009, and 2018 since every eclipse hits the same point during that time.
Throughout the eclipse, the sun and the moon will have vigorous roles in the message that is being transported by this eclipse. It is time to use these symbols from the cosmos to revolutionize something that has ended and start to build something new. Often it means planning until there is total collapse and finally making a reasonable decision. Eclipses are used as indications of the first phase and the conclusion of something, and often they are instructions in life as much as they can be said to be a turning point.
It is important to comprehend the connotation and purpose assumed during a full moon, especially when it comes to understanding how to live for a purpose. It is as commanding as everything the moon stands for. This moon rules areas of people, dreams, and karmic memories. But also, will rule communication, behavior, creativity, and being flighty.
A full moon in Gemini/Cancer is also a fickle minded, obsessive, emotional, and impatient time for many. National matters will preoccupy most of us during the full moon in Cancer. Sentiments and memories will lure us to people from our past. All situations from the past are always karmic, so we can go back and regret it or move forward and not look back.
Often, dumb words or actions, which separated us from them, take a little energy and humbleness to help the heart heal and right itself again. It is time to celebrate feelings, perchance very deep ones that we may have protecting implicitly for a long time, to express regret if needed and to generally be more caring and easy-going.
Many people will transform their strategies of the future by taking the time to consider all the things that have not worked and revamp them. The energy will affect behavior, the intuition, and the feelings and molding of instinctive behavior. A time of anxious emotions and countless compassion with people resort to life through emotions rather than reason. Particularly, examination will show what has held them back for so long to get their inspiring bliss. Since the eclipse falls in the ruler of Cancer/Gemini we are seeking the truth through sentimental communications.
This eclipse conveys shocking circumstances to bring to surface how we are with one another and questioning if our acts or reactions have met the higher good for all. Perhaps we will find that suicides were murders, and things that were hidden were the truth.
Looking back at time, remember the Al Gore/George Bush issues? Also, perhaps one cannot recall because we have been so accustomed to I-phones, but I-Tunes first came out in 2001, could it be that there will be a new application that will bring music and movies in the comfort of our home. Then again, Disney and Apple have already come out with their own sources of entertainment.
With Jupiter in Sagittarius until January 24, 2020, I still feel that some sort of a truth will be revealed regarding impeachment. Something is bound to slip, then again, President Trump is a Gemini after all, sometimes when we talk too much, we let things slip because we are angry. Hmm… That is something to think about.
Eclipses always come in pairs, keeping in mind for everything that ends there are always a new beginning. Just a few days before the Solar Eclipse in December 25, 2019, the impeachment inquiry began. Could it be that in the next 6 months all this plays out into a drama.
It’s ironic, while I was writing this, my husband said to me, “No president will be removed during a War.” Perhaps it may all halted because of the frictions with Iran?
I also would not be surprised if big Pharma must pay millions for the Opioid crisis within the next 6 months. There may also be more suicide bombings, as most suicide bombings are driven by severe emotions without thinking things through; both traits of Cancer and Gemini.
During the eclipse, those who have mutable and cardinal signs will be fanatical to do things that hinder with their demonstrative satisfaction or chasing after their desires while wasting their talents and skills trying to balance a war between their passion and their desire. Hence, I did say in my 2018 predictions, that I would not be surprised if there is some sort of impeachment, removal or dislike of our leader in the U.S by many (read more about it here.)
In the historical findings according to VPAT, it has been discovered that during the eclipse all those in the viewing area of the eclipse, or nearby, will have events that will affect their countries, leaders, and environment. Since it is noted that U.S is a Cancer Country and the ruler is Trump, this eclipse occurs in the 7th house which means relationships, partnership, and alliance.
Plenty of focus on climate changes should be noted, especially natural gas, wood, food, and water. Additional focus will be on how much we are able to adapt to these changes. This eclipse will also re-stimulate to some degree the matters which were elevated during the solar eclipse in 2018.
According to VPAT, the eclipse planets trigger Shani (Lessons Learned) in Sagittarius (Truth) and Ketu (Anger) in Sagittarius to aspect the sun (Capricorn). Therefore, many unforeseen and sad events are possible all around the world. Gemini’s are also the rulers of doubts and thus cause situations to be a bit out of control. However, Rahu’s placement (Jupiter) (Sagittarius) will make things slightly more tolerable.
This eclipse is geared towards law, children, education, learning, communication, and seeking the realness. The path will not be completely seen until the July 2020 eclipse while some of it may occur sooner. The eclipses were all about starting something groundbreaking when the old was getting dull. It was also about discovering the depths of relationships which were spiritually, physically, and mentally exhausting while serving others and finding a median. Whatever I grabbed during the eclipses I was always led to leave things that were never useful or spiritual. If it meant I left friends and relationships to have a higher calling, then that is what the eclipse does for everyone.
Look back and see how profession, money, and relationships transformed you? What choices did you make? Did you learn from them or are you at the same place, doing the same thing that you were doing during 2001, 2009, 2018, and 2019?
Each planet which I am offering is based upon VPAT predictions of what will emerge as general predictors for Gemini’s and Cancer. To look at the whole picture it is advised to combine everything and get a larger picture. However, since no one person has as 12 planets in one sign, it is advisable to insert the predisposition wherever there is Gemini/Cancer present in your VPAT chart.
I will list all the planets and end dates for specific transit. I will also list them in the order of my favorite to my least favorite (they are usually the toughest). Finally, I will not be mentioning any planets which are retrograde as it usually causes more confusion; instead, I will focus on the dates.
What I am about to present to you is a predisposition of VPAT predictions of each sign. Since Gemini and Cancer are highlighted in this eclipse, the focus will be to look at both astrological signs from now until their birthday, May-July 2020.
Please note these predictions are not exact to a precise person or a situation; rather, they are universal penchants to every aspect. If you have properly signed up for my newsletter you may have received a form in which it climaxes these aspects and I hope you are able to follow along.
Dear Gemini, you continue to go through changes, three times a year, with Mercury Retrograde. However, Rahu which is often identified as a deity of perception and apprehension has been a benefit, whether you know it or not. It can be great for your career, depending upon the placement. Nevertheless, one thing for sure, Rahu is a short transit, and nothing compared to what Cancers have gone through since 2018. Some have lost a relationship while others have ended their position. Then again, some have gotten married and still others have given birth. Whatever the case, maybe it was an eye opener for their future. This is your second to last eclipse for at least 7 years so plant your seeds Cancer. At the same time, be sure to give some hints to Gemini’s as to what it is like because they too will go through similar effects in November of this year.
The first six months are not bad at all. Remember that when Saturn moves into your sign for a bit on January 24, 2020, it is about other people. It is important that you continue a peaceful relationship with family and loved ones as there is a possibility of disagreements in the springtime. It has to do with your ego and assertiveness; therefore, you must control your annoyance and make peace. Be the source of support for anyone that may be ill in your direct family. Though your love life looks good there could be difficulties in Spring or early Summer. Financially, things look good until the eclipse in June. Your own stressors will cause you aches and fatigue.
Rahu: Be careful how you spend your money. There could be difficulties with elderly people. If you are in a relationship you may find things are not so peachy right now.
Ketu: You may find life a little difficult, especially in areas of a partner or someone you care for. This not a time to make decisions as far as relationships are concerned. There also could some treachery and isolation from time to time.
Saturn: Relationships will get better, but minor disagreements are possible. Be careful of what you eat as you may have some stomach issues. Financially, this will be a good time for you.
Jupiter: This transit is also good for you. Your relationships will get better and financial situations will stabilize. You will get the help you need from people whom you ask. But if you are not careful there could be stressors in your marriage, especially around may.
Uranus: Loves you when it enters Taurus. There is a possibility of dreams like you would not believe, and these dreams will lead you to the answers you are seeking. Make sure you have recharged your energy as you will be very busy soon.
Mars (February 10, 2020): During this time, things will be very good for you. Hard work will pay off. But at the same time, do not be overconfident. It is time for you to feel good and let your superiors look at your work with praise.
Maharani’s Advise for Gemini
Right now, just keep your eyes open and keep your money in your pocket as well. You may not have too much support. Sometimes your temper and agitation will get the best of you. Be very careful not to be egotistical at times, but most of all, don’t presume things won’t work.
You might find the first six months of this year to be a little difficult, like all things, you too must change. This means the very core of your life will go through a transformation. But the good news is that you only have one more eclipse for 7 years at which point you will have the possibility of planting new seeds. There could be family conflicts and therefore you may stress yourself out unnecessarily. Be careful of the company you keep as your character may be questioned as a result. Additionally, taking on new friendships or relationships may not be advisable before your eclipse. There may be difficulties in areas of interpersonal relationships as well. All this may have to do with how you communicate with people. Work life may become difficult as you may feel that you are not receiving the support that you need. Don’t give away your secrets as you will see others may copy you. Financially, things will be better for you until your eclipse. Don’t lend or barrow money. Due to the stressors from family as well as work there may be increased stressors which will lead to sleep apnea. Because of this, watch where you are walking.
Rahu: You may become irresponsible with your finances after realizing that you should have watched how you spent. You may be able to release any financial investments or lost money. There may be difficulties getting along with people younger than you.
Ketu: There may be difficulties on and off for the next 6 months. People may want a contest with you. Working diligently will be the only way you may get ahead.
Saturn: There is a possibility of putting things off until the last minute which may not be advantageous to you, especially in areas of business. Take care with driving, children, and your spending. Most of all, stay away from gossip as this will hurt you more than others.
Jupiter: Finally, your health will start to get better. Some past due bills or loans will be paid off. Be careful though, there may be conflicts with family members, yet the possibility exists that you want the family to come together. If you are involved in any legal issues, they will go well.
Uranus: There is a good possibility that ideas will fly off your head for the positive and you may even take a humanistic approach to things. It’s time to collaborate, talk about, and plan things that you are excited about.
Mars (February 10, 2020): There could be difficulties with family and relationship. This may be a difficult time. Stay away from useless conflicts. Difficulties in your work life may be possible.
Maharani’s Advice For Cancer
Even if things seem status quo, the first 3 months of this year remember, I did warn you. If you are in business for yourself be very vigilant as you may be taken advantage of. Keep your visions and dreams to yourself. Be very kind to your siblings. You may find at times that people will dismiss your true talents. Don’t get angry, just say thank you with a smile on your face. You will find that you are becoming much stronger. Remember, almost everyone will let you down and perhaps those that have hurt you, and still around, are the ones that will continue to support you with unconditional love.
Every new moon and full moon focus will be on their respective signs. As this is first moon of 2020, I will only be focused on those that are affected the most. Below are minor tendencies of those that will be affected, secondarily, and last.
Capricorn, Taurus, Scorpio and Sagittarius
Along with Pluto, Sun, and Mercury, soon Saturn will be in Capricorn; certainly, this is a difficult eclipse for you. But Capricorns would not have it any other way. It is almost as if someone gets their head shaved and the hair comes back thicker and more beautiful than ever. Then again, this is not something Taurus’ can understand as the worries of Uranus in Taurus continue to change them for 7 years and beyond. It will make Taurus’ more mundane, focusing solely on spirituality within their lives. This could happen through death, birth, and sickness within their family structure. Scorpios are now on a road forward and preparing themselves for an eclipse in a couple of years. Saturn and eclipses are behind them, but this does not mean they don’t have changes to make, especially in areas of work and relationships. This is something Sagittarius knows best; always changing. Saturn will soon leave them, and Jupiter will move away, but the drum roll is that their eclipse is coming soon. Trust me when I say the eclipse is nothing compared to Saturn. Sure, changes are needed, but the biggest problem is how much information is given to others. They do not need to know everything and the more you make yourself an open book the more difficult these eclipses will be.
Capricorn: Hard work, challenges, adversaries, and opposition will be overcome. Health, however, may not be at its best and be careful with liquid consumption. Nothing bad, yet very nicely transforming.
Taurus: New financial opportunities are possible; however, expenditures may overwhelm you. Conflicts are possible with in-laws, direct family, and those that are not related because of how you talk and not what you are saying. Like I always say, if you say something with kindness it always has a different meaning and often your meanings are greatly received.
Scorpio: Strength, courage, initiative and confidence. Overcoming challenges and giving work all that you have. Be extra cautious so there are no accidents and be even more cautious with money. Be especially aware that you spend time and attention to family members. The only thing I can advise is to take things slow, look all around you, and be careful with money.
Sagittarius: Attitude, talking, and perception could cause problems for you. Family conflicts are possible because of how frank you may be, and this could hurt many relationships.
Aries, Virgo and Leo
Dear Aries, this is a tough time for you, as Chiron causes you to feel lonely, broke, and misunderstood; remember, when come out of it you will be a changed person. This is the time to really value what you have, just ask a Leo and Virgo. Both signs have gone through difficulties directly and indirectly. Leos and Virgos have already passed their eclipse. In addition, Saturn, Uranus, Rahu, Ketu, and Chiron are not going to be in Virgo or Leo any time soon. Then again, Virgos go through the difficulties of Mercury 3 to 4 times a year and Leo’s are indirectly affected by Saturn, so it’s not as easy as one may feel.
Aries: This eclipse cannot be more positive for you. Even though you may not see it right now, it will be clear in the months to follow. Financial growth is possible. Love relationships will get better, and you may even travel.
Leo: Work and educational stress could cause health issues. However, you could find that the hard work was well worth it. Your financial situation is going to soar. There could be conflicts in areas of interpersonal relationships because you may not have time for your loved ones.
Virgo: This will be a very vesting time as you will discover who you are, and your financial situation could get better. Your relationship with authority figures will soar as family relationships could weaken. Take care of your health and control the way you speak to people.
Aquarius, Pisces and Libra
Dear Aquarius though you may feel badly, either physically or mentally, I hate to say it, but it may be brought on by your own bad habits. What you are feeling now are the ashes of your own eclipse forcing you to change. Without change things only get worse. Just ask your fellow Pisces, they swim in their sea. Pisces have also gone through their eclipses, and their planet transits along with Libras. All of you have changed one way or another; it could be a residential move, career move, or things altogether different where there could be a spiritual transition for you.
Aquarius: Hard work, endurance, and determination will land you where you want to go. Love and finances will be good for you. Family, especially with children, will be quite lovely but it may be that you may have to play nurse to someone in the family.
Pisces: Financial and career life will rise and soon your health will get better as well. I also would not be surprised if you do a lot of traveling. But during any full moon, you may see your health is not well 2 weeks before and after. Be careful during your property transactions.
Libra: I believe you will say “how do you like me now.” There will be plenty of good going on for you; financial, family, and travel opportunities are here. But you do need to be careful during this eclipse not to have any conflicts at work and try not to have arguments for the sake of arguments. Conflicts are not something you like but sometimes they do happen because you may be the one to argue.
This eclipse falls in areas of communication and emotions; whether it is news about your next-door neighbor, your ex, or global events, it will most rebelliously get your interest. Everyone will be chatting, and it may even feel like you have information overload.
This eclipse is mainly relationship oriented, and our associations with others can be disengaged, tested, or suddenly welded together as the shock calls one to action. This eclipse centers on the home and family. It was ironic that as I was writing this, a very close friend of mine (Cancer) phoned me and said his mother passed away on December 31, 2019. I said to him, yes, it is the eclipse that is coming up and the one that just passed. Because this is a Cancer/Gemini eclipse, it has to do with family members, what we say, or what we did not say.
We may be intensely careful about our feelings and needs within the context of the house, sign, and planetary aspects affected. To fully gain the potential in the lunar eclipse we must discover both all the houses and signs that are brought into play.
This period is about where the Sun (Capricorn – Worries and insecurities) and Moon (Gemini – Fickle minded and talkative, and Cancer – Home and affection) are. The Moon is about our abilities to confront our demons, old deeds, and uncertainties. The Sun is where we may find the means to hold a release from whatever suppression we experience in life through our creative efforts. In any event, there are opportunities for deeper understanding and finding a balance in our lives.
Let the substantial problems of the past months drop away. Swim like a light being and fly like an angel of the heavens in the harmonious seas of bliss and peace. I strongly suggest taking your aspirations that you have made last month and cross them out one by one. Remember to never beg for your aspirations.
You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras, achieving the desired result is dependent upon the quality of intention. When it comes to finding a satisfying relationships and success, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be.
The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. This year I am going back to basics, whereas there will be only one mantra. This will allow those that have never used the mantras to be able to perfect them. And experts can now connect with the higher power even more so.
For the Lunar Eclipse I suggest reciting this mantra every day until the next eclipse.
Om Shraang Shreeng Shroung Sah Chandramase Namaha
(om Shraaang Shriing Sh roung Suah Chan dra Ma se Na ma ha)
The intention of this mantra is to call upon the God of protection and harmony to give you internal and external peace without doubts.
I will be offering 6-month personal in-depth readings starting on the 12th will be posted on the 11th. These readings will be encompassing areas of life that may not be touched upon by an Astrologer; I provide you choices and astrologers provide the journey. Together, the messages unify the sublime bliss of your choice.
Additionally, please note that I am not an Astrologer nor privileged to be one. The information provided is completely general so you can get a basic notion of what you can expect. Vedic reading incorporates a basic concept of how we live in the physical world and how we can change our destiny, to be written in pencil, never a pen.
Vedic reading also grips the concept that for every action there is a reaction. Until we know what actions are going to be touching our lives, we have no idea how react to them when they happen. Vedic readings predetermine the actions so your actions or reactions can be sustainable rather than over-reactive and unmanageable.
Wishing a safe journey through the passages of lunar eclipse.
