Big Eclipse Energy: Weekly Horoscopes January 6-10

Happy first full moon of the year! Or maybe not so happy. This week is bringing us the double whammy of a full moon and lunar eclipse in Cancer, meaning we’ll be feeling “all the feels,” as the kids say. I’m not crying! You’re crying! Wait…everyone is crying. It’s gonna be a long week. Thanks for nothing, Cancer! 


glass case of emotion

The full moon in Cancer has you trapped in a glass case of emotion this week, Aries, so you might as well embrace it. Let it all out. Sure, that means you might be that chick in the corner of the bar ugly-crying about World War III, the Australian bushfires, or just like, how your holiday bloat still hasn’t gone down (all equally dire situations tbh), but somebody has to do it. Let yourself have the sweet release this week, and you’ll be back to your cold-hearted self in no time. 


You’re usually pretty decisive, Taurus, but this week you have no f*cking clue what you want. Thanks, eclipse. You’re that person in line at Starbucks who had a full five minutes to figure out their coffee order, yet is still somehow confused when they get to the register. Aka the worst. Since either/or scenarios are just not your jam this week, see if there’s a way to make both options happen. Or better yet, procrastinate the decision making until next week, when your ability to choose will be magically restored. 



What’s that 2020 budget looking like, Gemini? The full moon has your mind on your money and your money on your mind this week, so its time to get serious. Pay attention to the directions your wallet is being pulled this week, because it might be an omen for what is to come. For example, a conflict between your desire to attend happy hour and your need to pay rent this month might reflect an even bigger conflict down the line. Choose wisely. 


The full moon is in your sign this week, Cancer, plus it’s a lunar eclipse, meaning there is a ton of energy to catapult you into 2020 and beyond. Things that started to set in motion over the summer will begin solidifying this week as the new moon-eclipse combo manifests the hard work you’ve been putting in for the past year and a half. Change is in the air, so lean into any opportunities that may arise this week, even if they seem completely out of left field. 


The whole world is infected with “new year, new me” energy this week, but don’t let them harsh your mellow, Leo. Slow and steady wins the race as they say, and with the full moon lighting up your house of rest and introspection, now is the time to reflect on what you really want to accomplish this year, before barreling ahead and taking on 10 new projects and a 30 day yoga challenge. Remember: the person who attends two HIIT classes a day this week is the person who stays in bed crying with pizza every day next week. 


The eclipse has you feeling the love this week and is chilling in your house of teamwork, so it’s time to put together your 2020 crew. Who are the people that are gonna help you be the best version of you, and who are the people you need to leave in 2019? This week is all about assembling your dream team, so get that group chat started now. Think people you’ll thank while accepting your Oscar/Grammy/Nobel Peace Prize only. 


The full moon is bringing a focus to your home life this week, Libra, so it’s time to assess. How’s that roommate situation? Are passive aggressive notes turning into aggressive aggressive texts? Or is it time to Marie Kondo the f*ck out of your living room? In general, how can you change up your living space so it can be the den of success necessary for world domination in 2020? This could mean a total rearrangement of your bedroom furniture, or something as simple as upgrading to the fancier toilet paper. Whatever you need to feel like a boss. 


The full moon has you itching for adventure, Scorpio, which is tough considering you just had time off. Is there a weekend getaway you can take ASAP? What are the cheap flights in your area looking like these days? Or perhaps you have a rich friend with a beach house that is just DYING to let you stay? If not, even just planning a future trip, or perusing a travel Insta, could help take some of the “get me the f*ck out of here” edge off. 


It’s decision making time, Sagittarius. If there’s a question that’s been plaguing you lately, this is the week to answer it once and for all. Ask for that raise, send the risky text, and definitely toss those “skinny” pants you know you’ll never fit into again. This week’s full moon is all about getting the stale energy of 2019 out of here and moving into 2020 with more money, less f*ckboys, and pants that actually fit. Doesn’t that sound amazing? 


With the full moon in Cancer, aka your opposing sign, you might find yourself acting a little weird this week. Follow this strange new energy where it leads you, but maybe hold off on any major decision making (or serious spending) until Cancer’s kooky influence has worn off. What seems like a fun new adventure this week might look like a f*cking nightmare of debt and anxiety next week, so maybe give your credit card to your roommate for safekeeping until Monday. 


You’ve got productivity out the wazoo this week, but make sure you’re not overextending yourself. The super-charged full moon energy is making it seem like anything is possible, but it is important to remember that you’re still a human being who needs sleep and food to live. Stick to manageable goals and see the awesome Cancer moon energy help you fulfill them, rather than overloading into an anxiety-based hibernation by Sunday. Remember folks, Beyoncé wasn’t built in a day!


Have you been hibernating (aka working off a hangover) since NYE? Well, that ends today! The Cancer moon is lighting up your house of glamour, romance, and fame, and you absolutely cannot waste that on your roommates and/or Postmates delivery guy. You’ll be attracting attention whether you want to or not this week, so you might as well take advantage by going out and getting a few free drinks out of the deal. What? You can’t help it you’re so popular.
