The first month of the year is almost over and guess what that means? You made it! The first month of a new year is always an important one — and that’s especially true when we start off the year with a full supermoon in Cancer, a sign ruled by the moon herself. Plus, at the end of the month, we have another supermoon that doubles as a blue moon since it’s the second full moon of the month. With this in mind, we’re here to share what January 31st’s full blue moon means for each zodiac sign, so you can make sure you get the most out of this powerful and cosmic energy as you’re propelled into the year ahead.

Oh, and besides being a super blue moon? This full moon is also a lunar eclipse: a strong energetic portal that occurs a few times a year with energy that ripples out for the next 6 to 12 months. Eclipses ask us to get real about what we need, and they often close doors that aren’t serving us while opening new ones. Simply put, every sign can gain something from this astrological happening.

We talked to astrologer extraordinare and horoscope queen for Coveteur, Amelia Quint, to get the lowdown on what each zodiac sign should expect from January 31st’s full blue moon.

This full moon is happening in fiery Leo, so it’s time to stand in your power.

Fire sign Leo is the king of the jungle. He’s dramatic, he’s passionate, he’s bold, and he gets it done. The full moon is a time of illumination, a time of power, and a time of manifestation, which dear Leo feels right at home in. This is a show-stopping astrological happenstance that’s packed with energy to help us get clear on our vision for the year ahead.

For earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn):

According to Amelia, this moon falls into the emotional houses of your horoscope. So think less outer world and more inner world. Amelia says,

So go get a new journal or planner, check in on your resolutions, and make sure you’re taking care of yourself and your feelings. Do what you can to set up your inner world for success this new year, even if it’s as small as making an effort to meditate a couple times a week or taking a few seconds during the day to breathe.

For water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces):

Amelia points out that for water signs, the moon will activate the career houses of their horoscope. She explains,

If you’ve been looking for a new job, or wanting to start a new project, consider this a blessing. Get real and do what you can to meet the universe halfway in manifesting this new opportunity.

For air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius):

For air signs, this full moon highlights relationships. If you’ve been lacking clarity, now is when the smoke will clear. Amelia reveals,

Take time to think about what you’re looking for this new year and honor it by getting as specific as possible so you’re prepared for whatever is behind the curtain when it falls.

For fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius):

For those at home in this moon’s fire sign, the blue moon will ignite your creativity houses. Amelia points out,

Take this moon to find your passions and fuel them; start a new class, or simply read a new book, and you’ll set the tone for 2018.

No matter how you celebrate this incredible omen of a super blue moon eclipse, we hope you do and that you take some time to map out the best 2018 you possibly can.
