The Full Moon this month is at 26° Cancer on January 16 at 4:53am. The next New Moon is at 11° Aquarius on January 30 at 9:39pm.

Aries: New year circumstances may have urged you to great effort and hard work, however don't overdo things by trying to go too far too fast. Despite appearances, things are working with rather than against you, so don’t get overwhelmed. Let things take their natural course. Meanwhile the Full Moon brings your family and private life into focus. Giving yourself some time to centre your activities around the home could be very rewarding now. As you approach the next New Moon, you can turn your attention to more worldly rewards once more and begin to see your recent efforts paying off.

Taurus: You may have set out this year with your mind on travelling, enrolling on a course or taking up some self-education. Be sure to consider the needs of your closest relationships whilst in hot pursuit of your goals. Life is going to increase its pace during this Full Moon phase with extra demands for your attention to focus on everyday affairs. You may find it hard to keep up with increased communications or visitors. Later this month some additional co-operation and an understanding attitude on your part could have far-reaching effects on your own life-path or career.

Gemini: Early January was a time for getting down to business, stripping away and discarding non-essentials, memories of things past, and moving on, concentrating on the important things. You’re likely to be less sentimental at the moment. Any over-reliance on others has become a compromise you no longer want. The Full Moon focus is on what you have and value as personal resources. You find the required drive to improve your finances and increase your material security. Later this month you might find yourself being asked for your philosophical opinions or find yourself teaching or guiding others.

Cancer: This Full Moon finds you feeling like getting together and enjoying the social scene. You may not get a lot of support for the way you express your basic energy and drive, as you tend to go against the crowd and somehow manage to create reverberation in those around you. Some may even find you overbearing, as your intensity runs counter to whatever wanted by them. You find your ambitions are backed up by the will to get things done. If you can avoid a very personal and reactionary response you may find you’re appreciated and appear in a good light in any group project or social gathering.

Leo: Your year starts with an emphasis on your mundane responsibilities. Taking care of your health and environment are priority. Setting out a good working schedule will benefit you. This Full Moon may leave you wanting to escape from everyday tasks. Take time out to dream and indulge your imagination. Connect with your inner self, something you might have neglected recently. Replenish yourself at the deepest level and respect your own need for privacy. You are at your most compassionate and understanding when it comes to accepting and dealing with other people so all your relationships benefit from this. The desire for closeness will increase as the month ends.

Virgo: Creativity and having fun is the new year theme for you. A playful side to your character gives you the ability to relate to children or indulge your own childish whims. During the Full Moon phase your attention turns to community concerns, and altruism in general may get an added boost during this time. You can reap the rewards of your previous efforts whilst your thoughts may be on improving and making the best of a current situation. Ideas about what's really important come flooding in towards the month end, showing you clearly what is of value and what has spent its course.

Libra: Giving yourself time to spend on domestic, family and home issues is important for you now. Getting it right at the basic and mundane level is of value. Keeping the work – home balance is highlighted during the Full Moon this month. If there are any issues that need attention here you can spot them now. This may be the perfect time to actualise career matters that have been under development for a while. The creative buzz about you comes to a crescendo that peaks towards the month end. Decide how you can make it work to your benefit.

Scorpio: The New Year brought your attention to the people around you and in your neighbourhood. You can now give more time and energy to keeping up to date with local events, phone calls and emails. This Full Moon you are likely to feel you are making something of yourself. If you try hard now you can push on toward whatever goals you have in mind. Whilst you have the drive you are exploring and searching for more experiences, guidance and knowledge. You'll want to reel it in a bit towards the New moon when the home hearth seems more appealing again.

Sagittarius: The New Year has you considering your personal resources and exploring ways to increase your material security. As the Full Moon phase passes you are more aware of your reliance on others and how you can benefit from those associations. You can make decisions about what is of real value in your life now. Turn over a new leaf or throw out some old habits or possessions. Make space in your life because some interesting connections could need development towards the end of the month.

Capricorn: You start your year with a bold statement. Being clear about how you want to come across to others is no bad thing. It's a good time for you to develop your personal delivery as the Full Moon phase peaks. This focus finds you wanting to take a fresh look at relationships and make this a time to let go of all that’s worn out and uninspiring. Finding the beauty and value in yourself and those around you allows for more harmonious and rewarding partnerships. You may be torn between neglecting personal concerns to attend to material or financial affairs later in the month.

Aquarius: Considering your inner life and taking time out for yourself is of importance for you. A quiet start to the year is totally in line with your mood. The Full Moon brings a time of change that finds you examining everyday responsibilities, basic security and health issues. Attend to nagging details, to get them out of the way. You are able to really get down to what is important when it comes to making decisions affecting your material welfare. Putting yourself across, giving the right impression and working on your self-image take your attention towards the end of the month.

Pisces: Your tendency to compromise and settle for less than you dreamed can be a problem. Tension results when you ignore your own desires or fail to receive the rewards for your efforts. You may choose to cooperate and work together with others on community and long-term projects to achieve your goals. As the Full Moon passes, others may urge you on toward a more self-confident and outgoing attitude. Your enjoyment of life, creativity and spontaneous side get an airing during the next weeks though by the month end you are ready to withdraw and take time out to dream up some more.

Ballineen Foróige Young Engineers Exhibition 23 February 2018

The inaugural Ballineen Foróige Young Engineers Exhibition will take place in Gort Mhuire Hall in Ballineen this Friday 23rd February. As part of Engineers Week 2018, leaders and members of Ballineen Foróige Club have organised an exhibition which will showcase a diverse and exciting range of engineering projects that have been undertaken by members of the club over the last few weeks, with the aid of leaders and a number of local engineers.

With the aid of local pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly, along with the support of STEAM Education, a UCC based company focused on promoting science, technology, engineering, arts, and maths subjects in primary schools, Ballineen Foróige has been engaging members and leaders in all things engineering over the last six weeks. From researching, designing, and prototyping a project based on local problems, to participating in various workshops on coding and careers in engineering, Ballineen Foróige have been extremely busy in preparation for the exhibition this coming Friday night.

On the night itself, Michael Loftus, Head of Engineering at CIT, Fintan Goold, Manager at Eli Lilly and All-Ireland Cork winning Footballer, along with Geraldine Coughlan of GCA Architects & Designers, a local business, will act as judges on the night, evaluating the different engineering projects and offering some advice to the members of the club. Also in attendance will be the CEO of Foróige Seán Campbell, along with a number of local councillors, TD’s and Senators.

Leading the team of Ballineen Foróige leaders organising the event, is Rebecca Dwyer, a bioprocess engineer at Eli Lilly. Rebecca recently became a leader in the club and says that Ballineen Foróige Young Engineer Exhibition 2018 “promises to be a fun, challenging and rewarding experience for all involved and we look forward to welcoming parents, relatives, friends and members of the public to the exhibition and film screening on the evening of Friday 23rd February.” Overall, there are twelve projects entered in the exhibition. One project, led by Cian Kennefick and Charlie Nolan, members of the starting out club, examines the possibility of installing speed ramps on the road near local primary school. Fourteen-year-old Charlie says he got involved in the project as it was something to do and it gets you thinking. Cian says the most exciting part of the project was the building of the prototypes.

Both Cian and Charlie, along with thirty other members of the club will display their projects this coming Friday 23 February in Gort Mhuire Hall in Ballineen. Doors open at 8pm and the event runs until 10pm. All are welcome to attend, and admission is free. Catering, including tea and coffee, will be provided on the night.
