This Full Snow Moon has an eclipse on February 9, 2009 at 20* Leo, culmination 11:50 PST. The eclipse will be an Appulse, where the penumbra, partial illumination or a shrouding occurs of the moon. An eclipse occurs because the moon and sun are close to the moon's nodes. They align with earth to cast a shadow. The moon crosses the ecliptic or the path of the sun across the sky and against the background stars.
The moon this month is about the expression of self and addressing masks. Observations of reactions and temperament, knowing your comfort level. What masks might you be wearing to feel reasonable with and around others, which masks are false or even phony. Awareness can stop the missteps, cease wasting your time, focusing upon what makes your life function. Emerging into becoming more meaningful, supportive of self, and taking notice of reinventing relationships, friends, family, activities, career, health and happiness. Moving your attitude toward the productive force instead of self sabotage.
Write in a journal or choose a few masks to analyze about yourself. Looking to uncover quirks, hidden feelings, strengths, and/or weaknesses. Here are a few to start with, many are not included in the collection.

You often see what you don't like in others, but what don't you like in yourself? Are you cringing? When are you most authentic? The masks you wear can be stimulated with certain people, or situations and instigated in your workplace, inside home or only outside home. Do you change your personality to fit your needs in a given moment? Are you comfortable mixing with others or by yourself? What masks seem effective for you? What disguise do you think you need? Energy unblocks when you open yourself for gentle but objective criticism. You want to form judgement on what no longer serves you in life. With an eclipse there is something being taken away or left behind. Choose to leave behind the unreal parts of you.
