Eclipses in August: A Total Solar Eclipse in Leo & a Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius

solar eclipsedreamstime_4552060August is a very potent month with these two eclipses and other transits happening with it. By now you probably have heard about the Total Leo Solar Eclipse moving over the heartland of the US. That is why it is also called the Big American Solar Eclipse. This is a very magical, mysterious event for many to watch.

Total Solar Eclipse August 21 at 29 degrees in Leo at 11:30 am PST

Please keep in mind that a Solar Eclipse is always a New Moon signifying an extra strong new beginning. A Solar Eclipse is happening when the Moon is briefly between the Sun and the earth, interrupting the light reaching us. Eclipses can be compared to rebooting your consciousness. Total Solar Eclipses always hold a deep attraction because of the mystery of it. The Moon is swallowing the Sun, daylight is darkening into a twilight movie set. If you have never seen a total eclipse this is your chance.

” The central shadow-path of this eclipse slices across America.  It first touches U.S. soil at Government Point, Oregon, at 10:16 a.m., local time, then it crosses Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky and Tennessee.  It clips the northeastern corner of Georgia, then sweeps across South Carolina before heading out to sea.  Those are the states where Totality is visible.  Weather permitting, the rest of the continental USA will at least see a partial eclipse.  The event has America’s name on it, in other words.  Furthermore it occurs opposite the “revolutionary” Aquarian moon in the most commonly-accepted birth chart for the United States – the “Sibley chart,” which is the one that most accurately reflected the timing of the attacks of September 11.

Leo is the Lion, the “King of the Beasts.”  This eclipse involves the archetype of kingship – leadership, in other words.  It is triggering that Aquarian Moon in the USA chart, the sign of revolution, genius, and either breakthrough or breakdown.  Since we are talking about an eclipse, we know that something must die to make way for a different future.  During the second half of August, we are likely to see dramatic events connected with the fusion of these symbols.

Leo represents those “kings” that rule us – political leaders and captains of industry and finance. (Remember that not everything would happen right on August 21. The rest of the month is active too.  Some events rooted in the eclipse will be further triggered by the arrival of Mars on the eclipse-point around September 2, the arrival of Venus there on September 18, and the square aspect of Mars to that point on January 23, 2018.)

Does Trump get impeached, as many predict?  Or simply consolidate his power?  Does he stage a coup, as many fear?  Does the military step in? Martial law? Massive civil unrest? Assassinations? ” (Steven Forrest)

Also it is happening on the Leo Ascendant of Trump who will be strongly impacted personally and as the head of state. The ASC symbolizes a connection to our physical body and hard transits to it can signify health problems. Health problems relating to Leo are centered around the heart and the sustenance of our core life force. Trump has his Mars right on his ASC which could mean violent action towards him (possibly an assassination) or he is dishing it out himself by starting a war, trying for a dictatorship something along those lines…

Lunar Eclipse August 7 at 15 degrees Aquarius at 11:10 am PST

Everybody keeps talking about the spectacular Total Solar Eclipse but forgets it will we preceded by a Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius. With that we will go into the Solar Eclipse with a certain level of emotional unrest, impatience and with the revolutionary drive for freedom and breaking free of tyranny.

Aquarius is the revolutionary; she is guided by a vision of freedom, equality and solidarity. Aquarians are the activists, the rebellious spirits and cutting edge volunteers helping the evolution to unfold so that progress can be made. We are all asked to connect with the Aquarian spirit deeply this month. Whenever the Moon is involved, the guidance is happening through your feelings, which is not always a comfortable thing. The Law of Attraction teaches you to follow the guidance system of your emotions.

I do believe things have been building up to a breaking point since the election and the Lunar Eclipse might provide the fuel for things to blow up with the Solar Eclipse. It is good to keep in mind that for the Phoenix out of Ashes to rise, the old bird has to die first to make place for the new one. Similarly we need to let go of old structures and believes in order to be ready to reach a new level of collective consciousness. Power, money and greed are the driving forces in our society and political land scape. Our political leadership is at an all-time low. History teaches us that sometimes things have to get really bad in order to provide us with the fuel to make changes. We will have to come together as one PEOPLE and solve the problems we are facing. There are also a lot of smart, honorable people out there. I am really excited and optimistic about what is happening in the collective! These eclipses will have a lasting impact at least for another half year.

What Can You Do? Where is Your Personal Place of Power?

For you as an individual the most important thing to know is how you personally might be impacted by either one of these Eclipses. That would be if these eclipses are touching any planets in your birth chart.  If you are born in the week around February 17, May 19, August 21 itself or November 20, your Sun will be squared by this Solar Eclipse. The Sun being the center of our identity, consciousness and core will have to let go something old in order to grow and thrive from here on.  A personal reading can help you profoundly to gain insight into how this big event might impact you very personally.

Lunar Astrology: Moon Reflections & More for July 2017 by Shakti Carola Navran

solar eclipsedreamstime_4552060July is an intense month gearing us up for the coming Total Solar Eclipse in August over the heartland of America. The big themes coming up are political upheavals around the president coming to a head with the Solar Eclipse happening on his Leo Rising and his Mars on the ASC. Also the chart of the US is impacted. We are seeing collective karma playing out and we will need to find our own personal point of power and focus. Today I will get more political than usual because the symbols really ask for it… If you feel offended just skip this month’ forecast. This is just my personal opinion.

The Capricorn Full Moon and Leo New Moon will experience very potent activations through Mars and Pluto. The question is how you as an individual can weather the collective karma sweeping through the country. How can you find your place and be prepared, grow and make the best out of challenging times? Of course for a satisfying answer you would need a personal astrological session to see how this exactly affects you through your personal karma and blueprint. But I will give you a few general pointers today.

Full Moon in Capricorn July 8-9, 9:06 pm PST at 17 degrees: Confronting the Reality of What Is
This month we all will feel what is happening in the political landscape very strongly and many of us will feel very upset and reactive as a result no matter which political camp we are subscribing to.

This Full Moon is happening in a one degree conjunction with Pluto, the Lord of Death and Rebirth, ruler of the hell realms opposing the Sun in Cancer in conjunction with Mars, the Lord of War, violence and destruction. Both points form a T-square with Jupiter, who rules expansion but also likes to add oil into the fires and tends to go overboard with big monumental gestures. The Sun in Cancer is a very emotional one to begin with and feels easily threatened and wounded.

The shadow we need to look at and transform is described by the principles of the controlling tyrant and forces in power. The dark face of Pluto in Capricorn is showing its face in brutal ways, trying to control the masses, the revolutionary momentum and evolutionary change we are witnessing everywhere in the world.
This is why I believe we will be looking at more civilian riots and unrest all over the country. Activism everywhere will get more support and energy. More hidden truth about Trump and Russian involvements will be revealed and he will have his hands full with trouble coming his way. As a bully with the Mars on his Leo Rising his solution to distract might be starting a war somewhere.

New Moon in Leo July 23, 2:45 am at 1 degrees: Challenges around Leadership and Personal Energy
This New Moon is in a tight conjunction with Mars. A Sun Mars conjunctions is always problematic because the Sun burns Mars with his superior power. As a result we might feel fatigued physically as well as emotionally. The low end of Mars in Leo is that of the ego maniac, the bully or the tyrant. What does this remind you of?

As individuals, as The People we need to stand up and take back the power of a true democracy. We need take a stand and be politically engaged. We need to speak out loud and clearly. (That is what I am doing here today …)

With a New Moon in Leo there will be a personal empowerment available to you. Leo is the sign of creativity and action, the willingness of stepping onto the stage of life, believing in and applying oneself wholeheartedly. Leo describes the high potential of a good leader such as the archetype of King Arthur.

I am a big believer in the personal power point of true transformation. The change and contribution we can make to the bigger picture and morphogenetic field of consciousness is by taking responsibility for things we can change in our circle of life. I suggest to start a daily meditation practice on love, peace and compassion as an antidote to the fear, anger and violence surfacing. This is a very powerful tool we all have available to us…
