It’s finally here! The supercharged New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Leo comes exact on Monday and we’re all in for some major changes on both a global and individual level. Luckily this eclipse is nicely aspected by both Uranus and Saturn, bringing change that comes about in a way that is fluid and harmonious and in alignment with our integrity all the while remaining grounded in reality.
While the astrology for the eclipse on August 21st may actually be quite nice for most of us on an individual level, with change comes inevitable discomfort. Change is never stress-free, and progress rarely comes from dwelling within our comfort zones. We are all being called to stretch far beyond what comes easy to us in order to forge a new path that is in alignment with what or hearts truly desire. Walking this new path requires courage, and it requires us to step up and allow our light to shine brightly for all to see. It also requires us to care much less about other people's opinions of our actions.
The New Moon on Sunday marks the official start to Eclipse Season and is the first of two back-to-back lunations beginning in the fiery & courageous sign of the solar “king.” At zero degrees Leo and in conjunction with Mars, the planet of action and initiation, this lunar cycle marks some MAJOR new beginning indeed! It’s also interesting to note that Mars will be playing a key role in both the Lunar & Solar eclipses in August, indicating that this eclipse season will be a huge test of will!
