It is the beginning of a new year and your focus may be on the year ahead, but it's always better to plan before you act. So: What do you want to accomplish this year? What long-term journey(s) are you still on, and what needs to be done next to take the next step? Take a bit of time to reflect back on how far you've come during the last year or even the last 10 years. What events, situations or encounters became the struggles and obstacles that got in your way, and how did you get past them? This is a good time to give yourself a hearty pat on the back for the victories and progress you've made in spite of those obstacles—and, even though you might not want to admit it, maybe even because of them.

If you try to move forward before you've become clearer about where you've been and where you're going, could result in inconsistent progress and possibly even losing sight of your destination. A little patience and diligence can help you be more aware of the unexpected glitches that lie ahead or the baggage you're still carrying from the past.

This is especially important now because you'll be busy with some new things over the next few weeks. In particular, relationships with anyone you're closely connected with could require some extra attention and effort. This could be friends, loved ones, co-workers or even people you are always at odds with. It will help to look beyond the expectations you have of them—good or bad—to see them as they really are. The less you see them through the lens of your own hopes, fears or judgment, the better able you will be in a position to make the relationship better. This can be a valuable asset going forward.

Time to celebrate! It might not seem like it, since we're still coming down from all the hype of December holidays and the turning of the year. And if you're in the Northern Hemisphere, the dark of the year and winter weather might make you want to just go back to bed and hibernate for a couple more months. Sure, Valentine's Day is coming up and if you're in a relationship that can be an exciting time to look forward to, but for many it's just more pressure and commercialized hype all over again. Isn't there a way to find some real peace, joy and contentment??

The Lunar Eclipse in Leo answers with a passionate Yes! But there's always a bit of a catch, right? The challenge is to release your Inner Lion that longs to go bounding across the savanna, wild and free! Or to bask in the sun, completely soaking in the deep heat and feeling at one with life. And to do that, it helps to be willing to be flexible and open about where, how and when those delicious moments come your way.

This is about letting your playful, joyous, creative side come out. If that part of you is a bit hard to find these days, being buried under stress, pressure, responsibilities, poor health or disillusionment, then it may take a concerted effort to uncover your Inner Lion and coax him/her out of hibernation. The best way to engage that passionate part of you is to entice it with some external fun, enjoyment, nurturing and social connection with friends, family and loved ones. That said, the trick is not to hold on to these qualities too tightly. The tighter you grip, the less you'll be able to adapt. And as eclipses are times of change, this is definitely a time when you need to stay loose, open, centered and well grounded.
