The Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo occurs on Wednesday, January 31st at 8:27 a.m. EST. It will be visible from Africa, Asia, Australia and North America. The Eclipse window lasts from 6:44 a.m. - 10:10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.
The Eclipse occurs at 11 degrees Leo and conjuncts the asteroid Ceres (nurturing themes, parents, Mom, health, food and environment) and the North Node of spiritual growth. The Lunation also opposes Venus bringing awareness around women, relationship and money.
This is a Super Moon as it is at Perigee (closest proximity to the Earth) and will appear 14% brighter than other Full Moons. It is also a Blue Moon as it is the second full moon within one calendar month.
The Eclipse is an answering response to the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo that occurred in August 2017.
