New Moon Solar Eclipse August 21, 2017: A Coronation

There is a lot of fear mongering being perpetuated by many Astrologers for the ‘Great American Eclipse.’ The last time a Solar Eclipse’s shadow darkened the the United States & Canada (to a lesser degree) was 99 years ago. According to Babylonian Astrology this is a very bad omen, and one should not watch the eclipse. You should wake up before sunrise and go to bed before sunset to avoid the negative energy. There is also a lot of conspiracy theories buzzing around about President Trump’s natal chart and life being directly affected by this eclipse as well. I won’t get political in my interpretation of the Solar Eclipse, rather, I would like to share a very concise analysis of what each of us may experience.

If the Crown Fits

If you are a Leo ascendant or have the North Node in Leo, you will feel this eclipse the strongest. You will experience a major transformation, as eclipses bring karmic events. Everyone else will see developments in their life, but this is not a major ascension point or life shattering event. The United States and some parts of Canada will be darkened, but this is actually an extremely important time for self reflection. Every single person is a luminary. Some lights are dimmer and brighter than others, but WE, humanity, are what illuminates the darkness. With Mars in Leo, the Moon’s North Node in Leo, and the Sun in Leo, there is a call to stand up for what we believe in. The house that Leo rules in your natal chart will show you where you have the opportunity to break free from group conditioning (Aquarius). Maybe it’s your second house, which will mean some important developments will happen surrounding emancipation from financial dependency. Perhaps it’s your seventh house which will allow you to stop self sacrificing your wants and needs. So long as you are able to handle these changes like a true royal (Leo) with grace and poise, your crown will fit.

Planetary

In the days following the Solar Eclipse, Venus will square Uranus which means we will be making some important decisions regarding our values, relationships, money, and most importantly self worth.  Venus will be in Cancer, so there will be a strong inclination to make a non-traditional (Uranus) decision regarding your sense of security and comfort.

-Mars in Leo sextile Jupiter in Libra

This aspect is about making passionate decisions regarding your authenticity. How can you be more of yourself?

-Mars in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius

When we know how we can live from a place of authenticity, we have the opportunity to make real long lasting change.

-Mercury Retrograde- all outer planets in Retrograde

Anytime a planet goes retrograde, confusion always takes hold. This is a cosmic test to see if we are able to “see” through all of the confusion. The more we live from a place of realness, the easier it will be to make it through the fog.

Your Coronation

We are each attending our own coronations at this time. We are all being forced to sit on the throne. There are parts of our lives that are coming to the forefront and we must be ready to lead those kingdoms and queendoms. With the New Moon Solar Eclipse being a particularly black new moon- we must remember that all the light we cannot see is within…….and those being your crown of jewels.

Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius- August 7, 2017: The Invention of You

The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

This is the story of an orphaned boy who lives in a Paris train station repairing the clocks. All he has is an Automaton his father left him before he perished in a fire. Hugo believes the Automaton (Aquarius) contains a message from his father but is missing a heart shaped key in order to unlock the message. Hugo is reclusive (Aquarius) and has no friends, but one day a chance meeting with a girl at the train station who happens to be wearing a heart (Leo) shaped key necklace sets them off on adventure to unlock the Automaton (Aquarius). Once the Automaton (Aquarius) is unlocked, it reveals an image of a scene from a film called ‘A Trip to the Moon’ (Eclipse). I won’t spoil the rest of the story, but I feel it is the perfect representation of this Aquarius Lunar Eclipse. Connecting to with others might very well be the key to the answers you seek. Bringing 3 unconnected parts of yourself together Unconscious (Moon) Practical (Earth) Higher Self (Sun) to create a master version of yourself is the greatest invention of all time. 

 

Things are coming to a tail end (South Node) so to speak from the February eclipses. Eclipses are times of dramatic completions, and are vortices of manifestation.

A Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Earth passes between the Moon and Sun casting an earthly shadow on the Moon. The Moon represents our emotions, subversive nature, our unconscious, our happiness, and our incarnation imprint. When the Earth’s shadow eclipses the Moon- what we feel becomes grounded into practical reality. We take all of those elusive Moony qualities and turn them into the brick and mortar of our life.

The Full Moon Eclipse is occurring in Aquarius which rules the 11th house. The 11th house is connected to our peers, social groups, hopes, wishes, and our tribe. We will all be faced with the truth of whether we are sacrificing our identity to fit in, or are we soooo different that we are losing out on opportunities to connect? Aquarius rules all that is different, innovative, unique, inventive, surprises, and thoughtful. The negative expressions are detachment and irresponsibility. A key lesson to learn from the Eclipse is let go (South Node) of that which is inhibiting your progress (Aquarius) and to embrace that which will allow you to be YOU. The Lunar Eclipse is going to show you the full potential of your interactions with others- regardless of where this Eclipse is happening in your natal chart. 

Aspects:

Jupiter in Libra which is all about meaningful connections will be trine this Eclipse suggesting that there is a need to widen your social interactions.

Mars in Leo Conjunct Sun in Leo- need to stand out. Remember- when you are yourself, everyone notices you!

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo: The New Reign Begins

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse- 22 degrees in Leo

Date: February 10, 2017

Moonbeams- Major shifts in perspective, looking at things from a new angle, following your heart

Our hearts and mind will be in sync during this lunar eclipse, as Leo rules the heart and Aquarius rules the mind. The lights of the sun and moon are going to imbue us with a majestic self-love truth. If you think about it, the Sun rules Leo, and Aquarius does have a very strong lunar energy, because Aquarius is about looking at things from a higher perspective, and illuminates truth- just like the moon. So considering this will be an eclipse, which is viewed as a shadow period, we will in fact be very strongly connected to light- Love, Integrity, Greatness, Healing, Truth

This is only a prenumbral eclipse- as the moon will be moving through earth’s outer shadow, so the moonlight will not be as bright, but it’s important to remember, that when darkness befalls the sky, we have a grand opportunity to become the luminaries we are, to step into our own light.

This eclipse is sort of like a reset that will be a nice preview of things to come, as we are still in an integration period. Yes we are in a 1 universal year, however, the cosmic new year does not officially begin until the Spring Equinox- March 22. So many of us have been feeling like we are still in 2016. There has still been a lot of releasing and letting go, and I know I have been feeling a little frustrated because 2017 so far has been a little bit of a struggle. We will also have 2 of the same eclipses in August, so think of this eclipse, and our solar eclipse coming up in a couple of weeks as a door opening, and August eclipses of the other side of the open door.

We also have a Mystic Rectangle in fire and air with the 22° Leo Moon, 21° Uranus in Aries, 22° Aquarius Sun and 23° Jupiter in Libra. This mystic rectangle is essentially telling us that when we change our perspective, we can change our life! It’s also about putting yourself out there as Leoline energy encourages us to do, but we can’t do it alone. We need to share our light with the collective, which Aquarius encourages us to do.

This eclipse will also be conjunct the north node, so this eclipse will bring you something. You will gain something from this energy. It’s important that you create a transit chart to see what house this eclipse will be happening, because that will tell you what you can expect to gain. It’s also very important to note if you have any planets between 18-27 degrees in Aquarius- because those planets and the houses they are in will also be triggered.

When you shift your perspective, is when you truly able to see your passions and follow them whole heartedly. So put on your crown of stars and let the world hear you roar!

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo: Sept 1, 2016: Through the Looking Glass

Our New Moon in Virgo Solar Eclipse is about taking the rose coloured glasses off! The new beginnings that are taking place are the fruits of the Saturn/Neptune Square that we have been dealing with since March 2015. The new information that has been collected will come to head with Mr. Detective Virgo, and will be revealed from old beliefs that have been struck down. The Saturn/Neptune Square is uncomfortable, because who wants to admit to themselves, that their illusions are only illusions? Virgo is a down to earth sign, so if anything, if you have been doing the work all year of releasing, then this new moon eclipse will be affirmation that you have done the right thing. If you have not been doing the work, get ready to say goodbye to your illusions in a grand way. The Saturn/Neptune Square has been teaching us to trust the process of life, and the divine timing of all things. Illusions and suppression of emotions will have to be released.It’s important to note, that Mercury Retrograde is very close to Jupiter, which means that as painful as it will be to say goodbye to your illusions, this placement suggests that these are just minor bumps in the road, and you will be able to ease into your transformation.

This new moon solar eclipse also has a karmic flair to it. This will be lined up with the Virgo North Node/Pisces South Node, so there will be new information leading you to experience something totally brand new coming up. This Eclipse is happening at 9 degrees in Virgo, the number of endings, releasing, and celebration, which is happening in the 9th month of the year, and a 18 universal month which reduces to 9. This triple 9 code is also happening on the 1st of September, 1, being the number of new beginnings….so we are all literally on the cusp of change! Because of this karmic influence, this eclipse energy will exceed its usual 6 months side effects, and go into infinity! Look to see where the moon will be in your natal chart- prepare for a huge life changing transformation in this area of your life for years to come.The future is yours.

Eclipses are doorways ushering in new energy to be embraced. This new moon solar eclipse will be more of a looking glass, where we will finally be able to see who we are and where we are headed. Are you ready to climb through the mirror to experience the world beyond it? The world beyond is your true world, no more distorted images, just a clear reflection of all that you are about to become! Instead of setting intentions during this New Moon, dream big, because as we enter into a new evolutionary cycle, your dreams just may come true!
Tips

Consume yellow/orange foods on this day as it will nourish your body with the colour of the sun- bright and light, to minimize the shadow effects of this eclipse

Work with grounding crystals and gems such as hematite, garnet, green moss agate, and other green stones

Exercise or spend time in nature

Create a Gratitude Oracle where you express all of the things you are grateful for from the beginning of the year until now, and from the past 9 years. Make sure to state your gratitude oracle aloud, as the solar eclipse has a lot of masculine energy, which is outward and expressive.
