Is there something inevitable you have to face! Is there something inevitable that you have to let go of? It is a time where what may have seemed impossible before suddenly becomes possible. At any rate, a New Moon that happens to be a Total Eclipse of the Sun at the end of a sign, brings something that must be embraced. Letting go of the past and moving forward. Well! Look at this. A second chance! It is time that you took a chance on yourself. There are three fire signs all associated with who and how we are. Aries is identity, Leo is to be creative and expressive with that identity, and Sagittarius is to expand who we are with education and experience. This New Moon/Solar Eclipse at the end of Leo is favorable to Uranus at the end of Aries and Saturn at the end of Sagittarius. A Grand Fire Trine! Time to express yourself with no insecurities. It is time and it is your turn. Make it a good one.
A NEW MOON/SOLAR ECLIPSE WILL OCCUR ON AUGUST 21, 2017 2:30 PM EDT AT 28 DEGREES LEO 53 MINUTES
Leo is the sign of integrity, recognition, romance, affection, creativity, and play. When this sign is emphasized, we show kindness and generosity to others. We fall in love and put our heart into whatever we are doing. Time for ambition, independence, and leadership. People may refuse to recognize their limitations under this influence. This sign can be known for its overly dramatic behavior. It rules the heart and the upper spine.
This is the most dramatic of all the twelve signs. Where Leo is in your chart is where you have the power to create, to make things happen by using your will. Leo is a fixed, determined, fire, goal-oriented sign; all the ingredients needed for success.
THE DECANATE: ARIES
The sign of the pioneer and new beginnings. Springtime. Fire signs are goal oriented, and concerned with future opportunities. Often described as inspirational, fire signs, more than all others, show where you need goals. Aries never forgets the fact that they were born to lead the way. Born directors and organizers. This sign represents the need to become a more well defined individual. The house Aries is on in your chart shows where instinctual activity, freely operating, gives you the opportunity to become more conscious to add to your development as a separate entity. This sign rules the head.
THE DWAD: CANCER
The subconscious, the emotions, and instinctual behavior. Intense emotion and great sensitivity. This sign connects us with the past, our roots, family, and the way we were raised. This is the most fertile sign of the zodiac. Time to nurture, protect, and care for the things that we want to bring forth now. It rules the breast and the stomach. The house ruled by Cancer shows where, moved by emotion, you seek out experiences, which secures your Aries identity and builds foundations in your personal life. You protect this area of your life like a mother protecting her young. You function in this area with “gut feeling”.
This is the second New Moon in Leo and this New Moon is a Total Eclipse of the Sun. New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Leo is joined with Mars adding energy to what we need to create. Mars is favorable to Saturn in Sagittarius. Support is there plus the opportunity to learn what you need. Leo is a Fire sign and is looking to future possibilities. It is time to have some goals for what you like to accomplish. The Planet Uranus is at the 28th degree of Aries in exact trine to this Eclipse. Be an original! Mercury is retrograde so we are rethinking a few things. That actually helps to ground all this fiery energy. One thing to consider is Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Saturn and Mercury are all retrograde. It is all surfacing from a deeper level giving us the opportunity to push through old stuff so we can get things moving forward.
THE SABIAN SYMBOL: A MERMAID
This is a symbol of humanity’s insatiable appetite for experience on the side of psychological self-assurance, and of the nascent eagerness of the soul for a private and personal participation in every possible facet of self-fulfillment. There is an ineradicable purity of man’s make-up at core, and in consequence an ultimate repudiation of all the compromises which seem to be demanded in everyday relationships. The individual forever seeks and responds to the creative needs of life itself. The keyword is IMPORTUNITY. When positive, the degree is a completeness of quickening to inner instincts of the being and a real willingness to trust them, and when negative, a lack of discrimination and an awkward insensitivity.
