And so the energies of the upcoming eclipse are phenomenal, overpowering, relentless. These last few days there has been a deep sense of letting go, which for some of us has manifested as absolute exhaustion. And that is fine too. We need to go deep, to release that which no longer serves us. So sleep as much as you need.
The chart for theNew Moon in Leoalong with the Solar Eclipse in Leo shows a blazing stellium in this fieriest of signs. Let us not forget is that Leo is Fixed Fire, hence the energy of this eclipse is internally inside of us. For us to draw on, learn from, process internally.Marsis also inLeo, as is theNorth Node, representing a further internal processing of that which we need to let go of.
And both theSun and the Moon are forming a fire trine with Uranus in Aries, hence an even greater emphasis on letting go of that which no longer serves you. Open your heart to taking risks, open your heart wide, chase your wildest dreams these coming days. ForVenus in Cancer will soften your desires, giving you a softness around what you truly desire.
Cast your mind back to what was being triggered for you during the last Solar Eclipse of July 22nd 1999. Did it manifest? Do some grounding clearing work around that, so that you can more easily manifest this time around, as you know you can.
Do you feel the need to leave your job? Then do so. Travel the world? Then do so. Change your career? Then do so. For this eclipse is also about teaching us we can have our heart's desire, as the Moon is in the Fixed Fire sign of Leo....Leo rules our fifth house, the house of joy, short term love affairs, children, and creativity.
So go play, go be creative...and if you think you are not creative, well you are.....baking is being creative, as is gardening. Go journal as much as you can, to gain clarity and insight for the intentions you are setting for the coming six months.
Don't forget that Mercury is also retrograde, but don't let that bother you too much. It is a wonderful time to finish unfinished projects, and if you miss the bus, well, there will always be another bus to catch. And the emails can wait. And in a world which seems to be crumbling all around us, show love at all times......
For there is only ever love
