Final Summer Solar Eclipse ~ New Moon in Leo

Eclipse series come in threes, and we are now  – Aug. 11th, experiencing the 3rd and final of the summer series of eclipses for 2018. Most of the areas in our lives that needed attention for clearing out were likely addressed with the last full moon eclipse that was conjunct the south node. The south node has to do with outworn areas of our lives that we may be holding onto out of habit. Whether you left or lost a job, a pet, a lover or a friend keep on mind the sooner you let go of the person, friend or emotion, the sooner you will release the pain associated with holding onto something that is leaving your life.

Where this Solar eclipse lands in your chart highlights new activities for the coming months. In many cases this eclipse falls in the opposing house from the last eclipse. This will take you in an entirely different direction, and highlights exactly why you had to let go of the dead weight from the last eclipse on July 27th. In the sign Leo is where we look for the joy we hopefully experienced in our childhood in this area. Have you been avoiding this due to responsibilities you no longer need? That’s a good question to ask yourself if you feel stuck between letting go and moving on right now.

In some cases, this eclipse will also expose weaknesses in the house where it occurs. Whether this it manifests as a health issue that must be addressed, a financial emergency or a psychological breakdown or breakthrough, look at the positive side of these occurrences and see that you are being alerted to deal with these issues now before they get worse and out of hand.

A quick note that this eclipse falls on the (correct) Ascendant for the President, and will likely augur an entirely new chapter of his personal effectiveness. He may be letting go of many daily activities that were draining his focus (tweets?) as shown by the recent lunar eclipse and delegating these tasks to others.

The yod to the solar eclipse point in the Solar eclipse chart (see above) augurs an awakening of our collective egos as we watch the developments on the world stage. The truth has never been so hard to come by  with the base of the yod in deceptive Neptune along with Pluto, ruling the masses. As Internet superpowers continue to block alternative media in all areas, it is incumbent upon all to listen to ideas that test the status quo in your personal beliefs and past education, or conditioning as it may be.

1/2 price Eclipse readings by phone are available for both old and new clients for the next week or so and after that they will go away. Contact me here asap to schedule. This will also be my last blog post for a while, as I am going to take advantage of the eclipse energy myself. So enjoy what is left of the summer and stay tuned for some exciting developments.

 

Eclipse Season Summer 2018 Begins

Eclipse season begins with the first of three eclipses on Thursday July 12, 2018 (See chart above.)

The key issues with this eclipse are catharsis and the preliminary phase of reconstruction of some aspect of, or key area of your life.  First is recognition of the process you are dealing with, then letting go, and finally rebuilding. This is likely to apply to the area of your chart where this eclipse falls. It could be an issue of letting go of ego or status in relation to work, relationship, family, finances or anything else. You may have been trying to build up this area for some time as shown by the eclipse opposite Pluto in Capricorn. Capricorn is the sign of the slow building of structures. Pluto is not any fun to deal with – but it does clear out what is unnecessary.

Eclipses of the Sun have to do with your ego, your soul and your sense of centered-ness. It is now time to let go of aspects of this area you may have been building upon that might be taking you slightly off-course. Life provides a series of checks and balances to refine our direction to our most beneficial soul purpose. The eclipse falls in Cancer, so in this case this letting go is part of the process of focusing on a clearer sense of your own purpose in what you personally create or provide to the world and/or to upgrading your own self-nurturing.

Because eclipses can be disorienting when they hit your chart directly, I wanted to get this post up in time for the 1st eclipse.  I will post more in the forthcoming days on the next two eclipses, so stay tuned. As always, get rest and try to wait and not to react to people or surprises that pop up within the first few days of the eclipse. And if you’d like to be personally prepared for the often emotional ups and downs this eclipse and how the next two eclipses align with your chart, contact me for a Special eclipse reading by phone at 1/2 the price of a regular reading.
