A cosmic event so rare it hasn't occurred in the last 150 years is set to take center stage in the sky on Wednesday, January 31. A supermoon (or when the Moon is closer to Earth in its orbit, according to NASA), blue moon (the second full moon of the month), and lunar eclipse (in which the Moon takes on a reddish tint while it passes through Earth's shadow) will coincide to create one major phenomenon dubbed the super blue blood moon. Not only will you be treated to a once-in-a-lifetime view, but you can also expect the celestial moment to play a role in your horoscope. The full moon will occur in Leo, a fire sign known for bringing drama and passion, according to astrology expert Amelia Quint, who recently explained to Hello Giggles exactly what the unusual moon's energy means for each zodiac sign. The event will bring something different for everyone. Here's what to expect from the rare astronomical occurrence.
What Happens During a Full Moon
In astrology, full moons signify a time for harvesting, or reaping in all of those seeds you've planted during the new moon six months earlier. They also act as a spotlight and highlight those parts of our selves that may have been in the "shadows," and invite us to bring anything that's been in-progress, "into the light."
If You're An Earth Sign (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn)
The moon will fall into your emotional house, Quint explains. This means you should spend less time fussing about the world around you and more time going inward and thinking introspectively. "It'll be more of an internal shift, one that happens behind the scenes. Still, it's no less meaningful than a big life event. In fact, that change of heart or secret calling could spur growth that makes your whole year take on a new, more positive direction," she predicts.
If You're a Water Sign (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces)
Expect to see a shift in your career. According to Quint, "This will be something obvious like a new job, professional accomplishment, or big payout. Just make sure to use your resources wisely, because what happens now sets the tone for the rest of 2018."
If You're An Air Sign (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius)
It's time to focus on your relationships and think about what you're looking for this year. "This moon is all about relationships. With the love sectors of your horoscope in play, you get an important message about the people you care about most, whether it's your social circle or a romantic partner," says Quint.
If you're a fire sign (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius)
The moon will enter your creativity house. Take time to find a new passion or tend to an old hobby. "You get a burst of inspiration that fuels the rest of your undertakings in 2018. Whether you finish an important creative project or start studying a totally new subject, you reach higher goals than you ever thought possible now," Quint explains.
