The Great American Eclipse in Leo

18 Aug

mermaid moonThe Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21st has been nicknamed, The Great American Eclipse due to the path of totality diagonally across the U.S.  It is the thought of Astrologers that the path of the eclipse is an area, geographically, that is most influenced by the eclipse energies.  This Eclipse marks a considerable time that may have some bearing on shaping the events and history of the U.S. and falls very close to a sensitive point in the chart of the U.S president.

All the world is a stage and we are all watching.

So, what does that mean to you?

Eclipses are a big deal in astrology.  Energy spikes during the weeks surrounding the eclipses; time and events seem to accelerate.  Eclipses are the Universe’s way of getting us on path.  Those with planets or points in 26-29 degrees will be activated by this Eclipse but those in the fixed signs, Leo, Aquarius, Taurus or Scorpio will feel this the most.

A Solar Eclipse is also a New Moon, a pumped up and powerful New Moon, a seeding time of new beginnings. It’s also a North Node Eclipse pointing the way far into our future but it’s not an isolated incident, Astrology shows us the cyclical nature of Life and the Universe and this Eclipse is also related to an Eclipse in the same degree back in August of 1998. You can reflect on your life back then and see if a similar theme presents.

The Universe is dishing out a double dose of Leo lessons; this is the second Leo New Moon in a row and it’s a Solar Eclipse.  Rawr!

The Sabian Symbol for the Eclipse degree reads, “A mermaid emerges from the ocean waves, ready for rebirth in human form”.  This symbol implies that there is something coming from deep within the unconscious, taking shape, but you may not yet be totally aware of what it is.  It’s as if there’s been a pause, awaiting and expectation of something coming into being.

The Universe is schooling us on things like ego, pride, self-confidence, leadership, loyalty, follow-through and taking risks.  We’ve had a lot of the Leo energies these days giving us the opportunity to get in touch with our inner essence and our central nature. This second New Moon Solar Eclipse is a rare and powerful opportunity to co-create what it is that’s in your heart.  There may have been issues coming into awareness, getting your attention, teaching you the difference between what is truly you and yours and something that’s been assigned, labeled or inherited by family or society. These energies are prompting you to get in touch with doing the things that you’re most passionate about, that give you joy and pleasure whether or not you receive recognition or approval and to Just do you.  

Mars in Leo continues to stoke the flames of creativity, passion, drama, flash and show or perhaps even the angry inner child.  Mars has a positive link with Jupiter in Libra and connects favorably with Saturn in Sagittarius suggesting that your creative initiatives and heart felt actions can create opportunities for collaborative efforts, to improve relations or move beyond them, readily using an abundance of caution, focus, concentration, discipline and some serious honesty and maturity.  You may have gained experience and wisdom and by now you know a thing or two about a thing or two. Use that.  Saturn will turn direct just a few days after this Eclipse on August 25th and you can start to move forward on some of your goals and ambitions.

Uranus in fellow fire sign Aries is in a favorable aspect to this Eclipse and things are moving fast and changing quickly.  There is a buzz of excitement and element of surprise and unpredictability.  You may be able to liberate your creative genius or take a quantum leap in developing your talents, abilities and self-mastery.  There’s a new vibration or frequency enabling a blossoming of your personal power. You could be asserting your independence and expression of your emotions.  You might also enjoy new friends or groups centered around children, play or creativity or some other cause or movement that tugs at your heart.

The Wounded Healer, Chiron in Pisces also sends some vibes to this Eclipse suggesting a needed shift of any arrogance and self-importance to humility and compassion without minimizing yourself. It may be time to make some character adjustments surrendering those injured parts, weaknesses and mistakes.  There’s no need to let those things keep you small and from realizing your potential. These lessons help to yield a self that is more vital, warm, confident and radiant.

Ceres in Cancer is opposite Pluto in Capricorn creating a face-off between our nurturing needs, sense of belonging, nostalgia, security and things that are familiar with the trust, betrayal and/or abuse of authority and the fundamental make-over that’s been underway.  On another level, there may be matters dealing with women’s issues, child rearing and early education or our food that’s bumping heads with the powers that be or topics dealing with the workforce and rules and regulations.

Blessings and Good Vibes to ALL at this Spectacular Solar Eclipse!

Leo New Moon

21 Jul

leo heartThis is the first of two New Moons in fiery Leo.  All things Leo are in the limelight as we’re set to get a double dose of the Lion’s share. Next month, we’ll also have a Leo New Moon Solar Eclipse.  It is a BIG deal when the Universe puts so much emphasis on one sign.  Next month’s Eclipse has been nicknamed The Great American Eclipse, due to the path it takes across the U.S.  and it will play a key role in shaping the destiny of the U.S.  Leo is also the sign associated with the heart and the Universe is nudging you to get in touch with and act upon what is in your heart.

There’s a fertile atmosphere at this New Moon; romantic or artistic beginnings are in the air now.  Mars the Motivator is arm and arm with this New Moon, igniting the flames of passion and creativity. You may be ready to take inspired action and risks or perhaps there’s a moment of willful, theatrical emotional expression.  It could be that your aims are on fun and enjoyment; parties, recreation, celebrations, hobbies and vacations are in order.  It’s also an appropriate time to get in touch with your essence, your essential nature and play with your inner child. What makes you feel happy, vital and alive? What talent or knack do you have that is central to your being?  What makes you feel special? Or gets you noticed or admired? What do you take pride in? On the flip side, it’s best to beware of getting roped in to any of the negative Leo behaviors like being overly dramatic, arrogant or needing constant attention and approval thinking the Universe revolves around you.

Uranus in Aries elbows this Lunation, creating some excitement or a need to break out, do something differently or out of character.

Mercury and the North Node in Leo connect with Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius (in a wider orb).  There may be brilliantly creative and innovative ideas or break through information or conversations that are stimulating and inspiring, with flashes of insight and intuition and an ability to concentrate and focus on the truth, the meaning and the larger picture and set a future course.

Venus in Gemini is opposite Saturn in Sagittarius suggesting that there may be a desire for variety or maybe you’re enjoying certain distractions that is conflicting with the need to heighten your focus, concentrate and commit. There also may be multiple relationships, contacts, associations or agreements to reconcile with the many responsibilities, growing resistance or sizable obstacles that you must face.

You may also enjoy chit chatting, news, gossiping and socializing that is met with a lack of concrete knowledge, limited world views or an obstruction of the truth.  Alternatively, you may be surprised what you can learn from an everyday exchange in conversation having wisdom, experience, guidance and meaning.

New Moon Blessings to ALL!

Leo New Moon

2 Aug

leofirepicWe may start to feel fired up and frisky at this New Moon in fiery Leo.  The sky is lit up with some fiery energies now.  The spirit of the Lion focuses on things that are heart centered, fun and creative; the things that bring us pleasure and joy, including children and romantic encounters.  This is also the time of year to  get in touch with those things that make us special; the things that make you uniquely and authentically you; whatever talents and/or a knack for this or that that it may be.  The Lion is proud and confident; perhaps part of your life could use a boost in confidence and vitality.  On the flip side of that, although it is good to be proud, confident and full of self-esteem, we need to be mindful of turning people off by being a braggart, showoff and/or arrogant.

The New Moon in Leo gets involved in the clash between structured Saturn and nebulous Neptune that we’ve been dealing with all year.  This configuration has us testing our faith and our knowledge of what we believe reality is as well as being able to manifest some of our long held dreams and visions.

This New Moon is in a favorable aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius, supporting some of our creative projects.  We could even see a completion to some of the large obstacles we may have experienced as of late.  There is still a need to increase our discipline and cut back on anything excessive or extravagant.  This theme of cutting back will continue for a while.  Saturn has been in retrograde motion for the last several months.  During this time it was necessary to consider our goals for the future as well as what success means to us personally.  Saturn will turn to direct motion in less than two weeks but is already in the degree that he’ll station in. This is giving a concentrated focus to this part of the chart and affects those that have planets or angles at or near 9 degrees of a mutable sign- Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces the most.

Neptune and the North Node in Pisces also connects with this Leo New Moon suggesting that releasing and surrendering some of those images, illusions, masks or ideals of the past yields a more authentic form of self-expression. Many of the things of the past that have held us back or that have contributed to our own undoing may give way to a self that is more confident and self-actualized.

Mars the Motivator has moved back into fellow fire sign Sagittarius and is now in direct motion; this gives us some momentum to push forward.  We may be feeling more adventurous wanting to get out and explore more, even if only in the mind, or we could even be traveling and vacationing.  With Mars in Sagittarius, our actions may be more future oriented, rooted in our truth or on what we now know or have recently discovered.  Alternatively, it could be that we push too far too fast or perhaps someone is being arrogant and pushy or forceful and angry in their beliefs and opinions.

We have even more fiery energies as Venus in Leo is in a favorable aspect to Uranus in Aries.  We could attract attention from both lovers and friends with this aspect; some even quite unexpected.   We may also desire more good times and freedom or we may feel extra creative leading to some kind of a break through.

Finally, we also have an opposition between Juno in Scorpio and Ceres in Taurus suggesting that our relationships may be deepening and evolving, some may even be ending; and this is requiring integration as we are establishing our sense of belonging.  Jealousy and possessiveness could also play a role where our relationships are concerned.

Blessings to ALL at this New Moon!

Leo Full Moon

24 Jan

We could see things coming to a head with matters of the heart, children or creative projects at this first Full Moon of the year.   With the Full Moon in Leo, we may be made more aware of the things that make us feel special, to feel our life pulse and to follow a path with heart.

Mercury Rx is conjunct Pluto in Capricorn at the time of this Full Moon.  Our thoughts continue on subjects of importance, conversations tend to be serious.  We can have powerful and penetrating thoughts and talks now.  Some of us may be talking of death, wills, estate planning, retirement planning or even talks of divorce.  We may be going over paperwork for taxes, insurance forms, mortgage or loan documents.  Mercury is also square to Uranus in Aries so some piece of information or news that we receive may come as a surprise or be unsettling in some way and it could change everything.  On another level, we could now have a deep and penetrating perception into a situation and get to the core of any blockages and break free.

Lilith squares off this Mercury Pluto conjunction and is quincunx Chiron in Pisces.  We may have to cover old ground on some agreement to resolves a conflict that catches us off guard and trips us up.   So it may be that what we thought was settled actually isn’t.

Mars is conjunct Juno in Scorpio and trine Neptune in Pisces.  There seems to be undercover actions by someone you’re involved with in some kind of partnership or collaboration; or there is some kind of secret or unexpressed aggression, anger or jealousy, or harboring resentment.  Issues could have to do with money, sex, sharing or trust. There could be infidelity, abuse or some kind of sexual dysfunction.  The Mars-Juno conjunction also makes a quincunx to Vesta in Aries.  There is an adjustment or modification needed in order with shared commitments. Counseling may be needed in some cases.  On another level, there could be a breach in security.

Jupiter is conjunct the North Node in Virgo and it seems that truth and purity of intention are the way forward.  We may be made aware of our future path of service.

Venus is also newly in Capricorn at the time of this Full Moon making relationships serious, important and committed. It may be that our approach to relationships is cautious at this time.  Or it could be that there is a barrier or coldness within a relationship.  We are also inclined to take the same mature approach in regard to our money.  We may be inclined to cut spending and conserve our money.  Objects that we buy now tend to be more practical, lasting or a worthy investment.  We need to structure our finances and spending.  Buying clothing at this time would be best for a career wardrobe, something ‘age appropriate ‘or classic pieces that stand the test of time.

On this first Full Moon of the year in the sign of Leo, the artist, the entertainer, I can’t help but to think of some of the great, memorable and iconic entertainers of our generation.  Many of us mourn their loss together but at least their music lives on.  We’ve just lost so many in such a short time; Scott Weiland, Lemme, David Bowie, Dale Griffin and Glenn Frey.  So much of their music makes up the soundtrack of our lives or has so many memories and feelings attached to them.  I guess heaven is rockin’ out with its brand new super group.  RIP great ones.

 

Blessings at this Full Moon!

Leo New Moon

11 Aug

Leo pic

This New Moon on August 14 is in fiery Leo may have us feeling fired up, playful and creative.  Venus retrograde is close to this New Moon and it may be that there are some creative longings or desires that creep up from the past.  You may have even forgotten about it because it’s been “shelved” so long. It could be one of those times when you say, “Hey I always wanted to do….” and now finally get an opportunity.  During this time we may be in the process of re-discovering or re-evaluating some of our talents, abilities and potential. It may be a time for finding your niche and what sets you apart.  In matters of the heart, we may be reconsidering what we need to feel loved or to feel special by getting in touch with ourselves at our core essence and to be able to feel valued and appreciated for just being ourselves.  When the love planet Venus backtracks in a romantic sign like Leo, you could also have encounters with old flames or relationships from the past.  Venus is also the planet of beauty but while she is retrograde, it’s not a good period to go shopping for new clothes or to change up your looks with new hairstyles or make-up.  You may not be happy with the results or maybe you would pay too much. This is definitely not a time for any cosmetic surgery.  Wait until after September 6th when Venus is in direct motion.

This New Moon is in a favorable aspect to Uranus in Aries.  There’s a buzz of excitement in the air.  There seem to be new and exciting changes on the horizon. Some may be unexpected or it may seem that it’s all happening so fast.  We may feel courageous and able to break free and to be independent.  Many of us may be on high and feeling this new frequency or vibration.

With the New Moon in a quincunx to Chiron in Pisces, these changes don’t come without some growing pains.  So there are adjustments needed but mostly in our attitude and confidence.  We should be ok as long as we’re not immersed in self-absorption or self-centeredness. We can’t just let our ego desires and wants or a sense of entitlement take over. Some tweaking is needed between being ostentatious or pompous and just surrendering to hopelessness and helplessness or playing victim. Try and find some middle ground. We are all in this together. It is helpful if we try to remain heart centered with the greatest good in mind.  Energy work could be very beneficial at this time in order to align or balance the heart chakra and attune it because of wounding from the past.  You can book your appointment with me.  Hint hint.

In matters of love, this could be a time when we reconsider or look back on relationships from the past and determine the role we may have played in our own wounding, or how we hurt another.  This time may be useful for learning forgiveness, for breaking free and releasing old karma.

Just days before the New Moon, on August 11th, Jupiter moved out of Leo where he’s been for the last year and into Virgo.  The last time Jupiter was in Virgo was in 2003-2004 so you can look back and see what kind of growth you experienced during that period. Jupiter will remain in Virgo for the next year.  This is a time when we can get uber organized.  We are able to break down a larger task into its smaller components now. Our attitude towards work or service can be optimistic and have us feeling generous. It is a good time to promote or advertise your services.  We can increase our efficiency and improve our techniques, procedures or craft.  During the next year, we may have a larger workload, a fuller schedule or an expanded routine.  It is a great time to also increase your exercise regimen or to start one and to improve the diet.  Overall it is a good time to recover, purify and heal the body.

New Moon in Leo

26 Jul

The Leo New Moon officially welcomes Jupiter to this creative sign. Jupiter moved into Leo on July 16th and hasn’t visited this sunny sign since August 2002- August 2003. This lunation sets the energy in motion. This Leo New Moon is conjunct Jupiter and fun is in order. Over the next year while Jupiter tours Leo, our growth can be experienced through our children, our creative self-expression and by giving recognition to our own inner child. We may be presented with creative opportunities and can even receive a boost in confidence and self-esteem.

Mars also changes signs and moves into Scorpio just before the Leo New Moon, after a very long stay in Libra. All of 2014 so far! While most of 2014 may seem like a ‘lost year’ so far with very little forward movement, things will take on a different vibe. It’s possible you’ve needed to come to a decision or agreement lately or possibly pushing for cooperation or initiating contact with an important other but just kept spinning wheels or going back and forth and just couldn’t get there. It may have seemed like you took one step forward and two steps back but now with Mars in Scorpio, no more ‘up in the air’ or vacillation. Things seem more all or nothing or a do or die type of energy. At this time, we may also start to feel more vital and alive, confident and passionate with renewed vigor and energy. Hot Blooded

This New Moon is also square Mars (then Mars and Jupiter perfect their square in a few days so this influence will linger.) We could even see a mix of tempers and threats sparked by egos and opinions with this aspect so be careful not to put on too much of a show. The positive is there is an intense drive for heart centered activities, for fun and enjoyment and for things that make us feel special. During this transit we may also feel magnetic and passionate, theatrical and romantic, and daring to be a bit dramatic.

Valentine’s Day Full Moon in Leo

14 Feb

Valentine’s Day Full Moon

This Full Moon in Leo may have us turning a corner in any creative projects, children’s matters, or in the romance department.  That could be a good thing since its Valentine’s Day.   This full moon could have you in a playful or feisty mood perhaps bringing out the drama and childishness.  Mars is supportive of this Full Moon but he’s in Libra a sign not comfortable for Mars.  Creative projects could involve some sort of risk or speculation.  Some ‘might’ may be needed in making things look pretty.  We may be working at something physically in order to make it beautiful.  It could be that we need to initiate contact and involvement. It could also be that you are pushing for some kind of agreement but it seems there will be a lot of back and forth with negotiations, with options being weighed and decisions needing to be made.  Mercury is Rx until the very end of the month and March starts with Mars (action) going Rx.  It may be a while before anything gets settled.  There may be a lot of quibbling or an ultimatum.  There could even be an opponent and arguments.  The square from Saturn in Scorpio suggests that there are some obstacles and that patience is needed.  Timing could be off.  Saturn will also retrograde on March 2- July 20; also slowing things down.  This could involve insurance, taxes, estates, joint finances, shared responsibilities, etc. or possibly issues with commitments, closeness, sharing, intimacy and even divorce. 

 Ok, so we have the Full Moon on Valentine’s Day and it IS in the romantic sign of Leo which could be a good thing.  I’ve always thought it to be sort of unusual that a day about celebrating love and romance is while the sun is in the sign of Aquarius.  Aquarius is not really known to be romantic or emotionally close.  But it IS known to have a love of humanity, brotherly love and platonic love.  Well I guess all you need is LOVE and LOVE is all you need. 

A Full Moon in Leo asks that we get in touch with our passions and what makes us feel special and feel fully alive, feel our ‘lust for life’ willing to take risks and have an open heart and to be in touch with our inner child.  Ask yourself what it is that you love about yourself.  It all comes down to self-love; without it we cannot truly love another and cannot fully benefit humanity.  “We got to let LOVE rule!” 

With the long stay of Venus in Capricorn and recent retrograde, there has been a focus on relationships. It has been important to define what we need from them to feel secure, what’s important, what matters, what’s been proven and stands the test of time and also our responsibility to the people that we love.  Relationships are responsibility. Relationships and love are what shapes and defines our lives and gives it more meaning. We may have been learning these important lessons lately.   

Mars is in Libra for an extended stay also.  Here we go again with the planet of strife in the sign of relationships, harmony and equality.  Do you think the Universe is trying to send a message? It is stirring up some stuff here with ourselves vs. others and how we relate and how we’re treating one another, and what we consider to be fair and what we are willing or not willing to compromise.  At the time of this Full Moon, Mars is only one degree from the place where he’ll retrograde on March 1st until May 20 and he’ll be in Libra until later in July so these energies aren’t going away any time soon.  We have some time so that ‘we can work it out’. 

Full Moon Blessings to everyone and Happy LOVE Day!
