Leo New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse!!
The Leo New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse is Monday, August 21st at 11:11am (pst)
Everyone’s talking about Monday’s Total Solar Eclipse, and for good reason. This is first time in almost 40 years that we’ve had a visible Solar Eclipse in the United States. I’m especially excited because, here in the Seattle area, we will have a 96% visibility of this amazing event! (Note to self, need to buy Eclipse glasses.)
Some interesting Solar Eclipse facts:
The last time there was a Total Solar Eclipse, visible only in the United States, and no other country was in 1776, the year the U.S. declared independence from England.
The next Solar Eclipse that will only be visible in the United States will occur on Oct 14, 2023.
The New Moon/Solar Eclipse is in 29 degrees Leo. This is the very same degree of President Donald Trump’s ascendant (rising sign). Hmmm…should be interesting!
Eclipses shake up the cosmic landscape, waking us up to new potentials, and adding intense illumination to the aspects of our lives that need to change. The signs of the zodiac that are the most affected by both August 7th’s Lunar Eclipse and Monday’s Solar Eclipse are the Fixed Signs--Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio. This includes your sun sign, and also if you have your moon or ascendant in a fixed sign.
(To find where the Solar Eclipse will be directly influence your astrology chart, look at the house where you have the sign of Leo on the cusp.)
Solar Eclipses effect our greater, worldly landscape, most notably: governments, politics and dynasties. This is especially true as this Solar Eclipse falls in Sun-ruled Leo—the sign of royalties and monarchies. Expect shakeups in world governments and their leaders. This is a time were loyalties and allegiances will be tested. On a personal level, this is a moment to balance your ego needs, with your heart.
A Solar Eclipse reveals what is hidden from you and your conscious, waking life. It asks the question: “What do you need to know right now, and what is currently obscured from your view?” The New Moon in Leo brings a fiery clarity and a strong will to create, express, birth and make anew. Use this time to be very clear with your intentions. The cosmic energy is extremely powerful now to breakthrough to new realizations and become a more authentic and truer you.
