The awe and wonder of the Solar Eclipse will not fade quickly. As the Moon speeds ahead of the Sun (effectively kicking off the new lunar cycle) it will meet with Mercury. Mercury is actually moving backwards to the exact degree of the where the Eclipse took place. At that point (28 degrees Leo) Mercury will pause (on Sept.5th) to receive enlightening vibes from Uranus (at 28 degrees Aries) further encouraging our heads and hearts to operate in sync. Mars too presses on towards the Eclipse point. In other words, the message of the Eclipse will be echoed by other planetary forces – particularly during the first few day of September where there is a high potential of profound flashes of creative genius – something that requires both an open heart (to receive) and plenty of patience between now and September 5th.
Also worth noting is Saturn’s placement, stationary direct this week. As it prepares to move forward the ‘higher mind’, our beliefs and time itself are emphasized under the influence of Sagittarius.
Lastly, since this Mercury retrograde period, which started on August 12th, is pertinent to what may be coming next it will be useful to re-read the horoscopes written at the beginning of the phase (click on your sign below):

August 15th- August 22nd, 2017
The week kicks off with Wanting Venus confronted by Truth-or-Nothing Pluto and encourages us seek understanding while at a harsh angle to Jupiter in judicial sign of Libra. We ‘ll be digging deep to find the calm in the center of our own storms – the unquestionable steady that has gotten us this far and that will (fingers crossed) allow us to go even further with strength and grace.
Of course, the Solar Eclipse is the highlight of this week’s astrology. Unfolding in fire sign Leo, energized by Warrior Mars and pulsing with anticipatory vibes of Uranus, it’s a rare opportunity to commune with our own lion/lioness-hearted selves.
Where the Solar Fire is…
Love. Innocence. Play. Creativity. Maybe a little gambling -just for fun though.
You’ve had so many years outside of the box it seems futile to put yourself back in now. The adventure continues Aries with plenty of omens no doubt leading the way. If the jitters are getting you, it’s likely a sign that this is no time for a standstill — got to keep moving with it…light on your feet now.
Where it’s driving you..
..into a creative wonderland. No need to ‘produce’ just yet…let the ideas keep coming for a while. “Round and round she goes, where she lands no body knows” 😉
