ECLIPSE in LEO, August 21st, 2017

“Who……are…..you?” 

“I hardly know sir, I’ve changed so many times since this morning, you see.” 

“No, I don’t see, explain yourself.” 

“I’m afraid I can’t explain myself sir, because I’m not myself, you know?”

I don’t know.” 

“Well I can’t put it any more clearly sir, for it isn’t clear to me.” 

Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Anticipation builds as the Solar Eclipse draws near.  It is expected to be a spectacular visual, of interest astronomically. Astrologically speaking, it’s creating quite a buzz – lots of folks quizzically asking “am I the only one feeling this?”    

As mentioned over the last few weeks, there are other planetary players involved amplifying the message of this upcoming Lunar event.  In fact, some astrologers believe we are ‘downloading’ a ton of information at the moment – too much, to wrap our brains around until the process is complete.  Needless to say, it would explain the feeling of being ‘on edge’.  I’ll attempt to break it down further…

Leo, represents the expressive ego, active energies that continually work to form and reform our identity – in essence the perpetual teenager in all of us.  The teenager summons the idea of rebellion, the desperate struggle to amalgamate talents, thoughts, ideas in effort to present a unique persona out in the world.  A struggle that quiets only when it has received praise, reward or any recognition for that matter, signalling that someone has truly picked up what we are putting down, confirming ‘who we are.’ It is, by and large, well-accepted from teenagers.

So how does this influence play out in mature adults?  Arguably, we continue to construct and reconstruct our identity throughout our lives, regardless of age.  We are always choosing from a wide array of talents, thoughts, ideas of which to emphasize, develop… show and stand behind when challenged – every single day. Under the intensity of this Solar Eclipse in the sign of the proud Lion/Lioness, shaken by Revolutionary Uranus and driven by Warrior Mars, then, we are offered a profound view of just how vast our potentials truly are. It can be a lot to take in.  

In short, as the Sun (our ego drives) struggle to shine, desperately clinging to what is, ultimately, a transient identity it will be eclipsed, cancelled out by the Moon.  The Moon resonates with our emotional, intuitive senses – it is a reflective feminine influence.  The heart, our gut level senses, simply won’t be ignored. We all have an opportunity to step out on the right foot, flowing in sync with and with support of larger cosmic forces eager to be expressed.

How apt that Regulus (a fixed star within a few degrees of this eclipse) has moved (back in late 2011) from the proud masculine fire sign of Leo into the purity conscious, feminine, earth sign Virgo after a 2160 year stay.  Incidentally, Virgo represents the first stage of adulthood and is known for engaging in self-improvement to near obsessive levels.  

* I feel compelled to stress that all of us carry masculine and feminine energies,  maturity cannot be predicted according to what sun sign you are born under, nor your age.  Further still, as I’ve mentioned in previous posts, each of us carries all of the elements associated with the zodiac, yet, in a unique pattern.

NEW MOON in LEO, July 23rd, 2017

NEW MOON in LEO

July 23rd, 2017

As always, New Moons are a great time for fresh starts.  This one has got an added punch, fueled by energetic Mars and colored by the willful pride of Leo. It should be easy as pie to muster the courage necessary to step into another phase – one your heart considers more suitable. Hopefully, you’ve tuned into what your heart has been telling you all along – Mars is not one wait patiently. 

In fact, this ‘get to it’ attitude and steadily increasing drive for independence will likely take over for the next six weeks while Mars cruises through Leo, far surpassing the initial kick start of this new lunar cycle. In other words,  your heart of hearts will be in the power seat for a while. It would be useful to keep in mind that arguing with the driver won’t get you anywhere fast. Needless to say, Mars can be reactive, especially when it doesn’t get what it wants. To be fair, this strong-willed independent vibe can bring an extra dose of light and laughter—it all depends on how you handle rushes of blood to the head.

In addition to this rather spirited New Moon, an urge to shake free from real or imagined restraints in search of another playground arrives as Venus sits in opposition to Saturn on the 24th.  With these two bound in struggle, there is liable to be a break up, if, again, in your heart, you know ‘this’ just isn’t suitable. On the other hand, this influence could encourage a brief pause in thinking -a chance to channel all this extra energy into turning a new leaf – make a serious attempt at looking at ‘this’ differently. Whatever the case, Einstein’s words explain it best: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results”.
