The Lunar Eclipse happens tomorrow at 11:50 AM, in the sign of the independent and eccentric humanitarian- Aquarius.
Eclipses are not negative.
Regardless of what you hear, see and/or read, let me repeat: Eclipses are not negative and they always come in pairs. There will always be a Solar Eclipse two weeks before or after a Lunar Eclipse.
*There’s a Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Leo on 8/21.
This eclipse tomorrow is a Lunar Eclipse- meaning-the Moon basically moves into the shadow of the earth.
Eclipses can seem scary because they tend to bring that which is hidden out into the light, and it might not always be positive.
Eclipses represent change, plain and simple. Endings and beginnings take place at this time, and change is often resisted, but ultimately, it is inevitable and needed.
This a highly emotional time. Energetic. Intense. Potent.
Don’t we all seem a little edgy, and well, cuckoo lately? It’s this energy!
Venus, the planet that rules how and what we love and value, is in Cancer until 8/26. People are very emotional, and besides that, we are feeling and absorbing others emotions as well.
Eclipses tend to bring in a clean sweep and often with a turn of events we may not be expecting. That can seem scary but remember: Uranus is retrograde as well as of 8/3, so expect the unexpected but also remember: Uranus will aways leave you better than you are found!
One of my favorite quotes as of late is:
When something goes wrong in your life, just yell “Plot Twist”! And move on
This definitely defines the next couple of weeks!
The key to Eclipses is to note that they are typically indicative of turning points in our lives. This can be both on an internal and external level.
A sense of fate surrounds eclipse energy and we really need to be as present and as centered as possible in order to work with this energy constructively.
A lot of important events in our lives take place on, around, or in between eclipses.
It is also important to mention that the signs the Eclipses happen in make a huge difference as well.
The Lunar Eclipse tomorrow is highlighting opposite signs- Leo and Aquarius. The Sun is in Leo for this Eclipse while the Moon is opposing in Aquarius.
Leo loves to shine and be in the limelight- the word ‘royalty’ comes to mind with the sign of Leo. Leo has the need to be seen and heard at all costs.
The Sun shines brightest in Leo-this sign is creative and this will highlight all of your unique talents and what makes you ‘you’. We want to leave a legacy with Leo- we desire to be known for our gifts.
How will you handle this energy? Will you show up and show off? Allow your light to shine?
The Sun does not shine so bright in the opposite sign of Aquarius. Aquarius is more detached and more concerned with the collective rather than individual needs. Leo is the North Node (where we are going) while Aquarius is the South Node (where we have been, the familiar, the past).
Aquarius likes to stick to the facts, that which makes sense. Aquarius falls under the element of Air, meaning, the mind- everything must be intellectualized before it is expressed.
Will you stick with the tried and true, rationalize the emotion away? Stick to the facts and not go into your heart and soul?
Obviously, these are two very different energies but the trick is to combine them both to get you to your most authentic self.
It will be very easy and comfortable to stay in the past, to feel the need to break free from the ties that bind yet feeling it might be easier and more beneficial to stay with the familiar. This is the challenge under Eclipse energy: Where we have been (South Node) Vs. Where we are going or where we desire to go (North Node).
At this time we should all be reevaluating our place in this world. Where we fit in, where we feel we don’t fit in, our sense of purpose. A lot of soul-searching at this time.
How we connect or disconnect with and from other people, places and groups.
There may be a disconnect between head and heart- again , emphasizing the Leo (fire & heart)/Aquarius (Air/Mind) polarity.
I suspect we will be hearing quite a bit over the next few weeks in regards to those of royalty and politics-(Leo). It’s important to stay connected to that which is important, the heart center. Controlling what goes on within because lets face it: we can’t really control what is going on without and under the Eclipse energy this will really be emphasized.
Tomorrow I will have a reading for the week ahead, so stay tuned.
