New Moon Solar Eclipse; August 21, 2017 ◉♌

 

“I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.” 
― 
Edgar Allan Poe

A spectacular celestial event occurs on August 21st, 2017 at 2:30 pm ET when our most intimate cosmic bodies — Sun, Moon and Earth — click into place creating a Total Solar Eclipse.

This is the second of two consecutive Leo lunations — a magical bonus round to magnetize our heart’s desire. This extraordinary New Moon also occurs near the powerful fixed star Regulus, the Royal Star – the brightest in the Leo constellation.

“At this Leo New Moon, dare to be vulnerable and wear your heart on your sleeve! Why hold back your true feelings about someone you admire? Or pretend you don’t love something that’s not considered “cool” by the self-appointed tastemakers of the world? What’s really cool is to be unapologetically yourself.” -Astrotwins

Mars, our action planet, will be within four tiny degrees of this eclipse, adding a big boost of energy. These heavenly bodies will receive shimmering vibrations from Uranus, the planet of surprise.

Those whose personal planets are activated by the 29th degree of the eclipse will feel its effects on a highly personal level.

Ideas planted during this period will have a lot of fire behind them. Put your unique brand of amazing in all you’re passionate about!

Electric breakthroughs can be made, especially if you are born around February 26th or August 21st. Home and relationship changes are likely if your birthday falls near February 11th or August 7th.

For clues, think back to the eclipse of August 22nd, 1998, when there was a Solar Eclipse in Leo at the same degree. Can you remember anything special that happened that year or in early 1999?

Locate where Leo falls in your birth chart, it will show you which area of your life is being activated.

Celebrate accomplishments, big and small

Wishing you Peace, Love & Light. xx

 

 

Magnetic Attraction

Synastry…what could be more fascinating?! Check out this great article by Maria DeSimone! xx

Astrologically, there are a few clear indicators to help you understand why one person has the power to give you an immediate rush while someone else leaves you feeling flat. Explore what your planets might say of your latest crush.

Sun-Moon

This is the classic indicator not only for attraction, but for compatibility. When you share a Sun-Moon tie with someone there’s an instant rapport that just can’t be beat. One’s essence (Sun) is embraced and understood intuitively (Moon). The Moon person can count on the Sun person and this pair will easily “get” each other. When this combination is found along with one of the sexier indicators of chemistry, it’ll likely be a love match that’s hard to beat.

Venus-Mars

This is by far the most famous inter-aspect for attraction. The planet of love (Venus) meets up with the planet of desire (Mars) and voila — you’ve got chemistry! There is a magnetic force that seems to pull the two of you together when you share this link. This is the kind of connection that makes your knees go weak when your special someone kisses you.

Sun-Mars (or, if someone’s Mars falls in your 5th House of Creativity)

When the Sun and Mars are linked, passion is fortified! The Sun person feels energized in this relationship and his or her sex drive is immediately aroused in the presence of the Mars person. Mars feels prompted to pursue the Sun person in an assertive way. The thrill of the chase is intoxicating with this connection!

Lunar Eclipse + Full Moon in Aquarius; Aug. 7th, 2017 ❂☍♒

 

A late summer Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse electrifies the skies on Monday, August 7th at 2:10 PM ET in Aquarius, the sign of the visionary. Lunar eclipses are famous for illuminating hidden agendas, stashed worries, secret crushes or buried fears that continues to hold us hostage.

“One of The Waterbearer’s symbols is the lightning bolt. Concentrated celestial light descending from the heavens to Earth. Uranus, one of the rulers of Aquarius, is The Awakener. This Aquarian state of consciousness allows us to transcend the limitations of the physical world. From this enlightened perspective, the mind can experience and explore creation.” -Robert Ayres

Some Full Moon in Aquarius themes and suggestions:

  • Bust out of what you think you know — be open to mind blowing shifts in perspective
  • Embrace the glorious, outrageous, unique you
  • Be a voice for the voiceless
  • Paint, draw, pull visions and epiphanies from sources out of this world
  • Develop a privacy barrier in your virtual life

 

Not everyone will feel the effects of this Leo – Aquarius Full Moon with the same intensity. If your birthday falls within four days of February 5th –  you may see a long awaited breakthrough. Think about what changes you’ve been putting off, the healing you’ve needed..the release that is calling out.

If you have a powerful message to share, the eclipse can carry it much farther than you expect. After this month, you may begin to see yourself in a new light, and possibly change your style to reflect the dramatic changes going on within you. The same applies to you if you have a planet or point at 15 degrees Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.

Venus in Cancer; Jul. 31st – Aug. 26th, 2017 ♀♡♋

Venus, our planet of love, pleasure and beauty, moves from breezy Gemini into the sentimental waters of CancerVenus in Cancer will be a nostalgic time for us. Sincerity, sensuality and sensitivity are all aphrodisiacs during this cycle as we focus on the deeper emotional connections between our partners, friends and family.

Possibilities for Venus in Cancer

  • Giving the gift of your undivided attention.
  • Looking at any issues of dependency, as a way of keeping someone with you forever.
  • Irrational moods (being Moonstruck), temporarily losing all objectivity, throwing tantrums to get needs met.

Full Moon in Capricorn; July 9, 2017❂♑

A Full Moon in Capricorn occurs on Sunday, July 9th, 2017, at 12:07 AM ET when the sensitive Cancer Sun opposes the cool Capricorn Moon. This cosmic illumination is about the balance between sweet success and material rewards vs. the comfort of home and family. Both signs ultimately seek security, yet reach for it in very different ways. This is an invitation to look reality in the eye as we reset our priorities.

“The reason this 24-hour time-period stands out is that there is not only a very powerful and potentially enlightening Full Moon  – energizing 18 degrees of Cancer and Capricorn – but intense, formidable and secretive Pluto unites with the Moon and is therefore a part of the entire Full Moon vibration. There is so much more going on now in the subterranean regions of the human kingdom than there was in February 1930, when distant Pluto was discovered at 18 degrees of Cancer. Thus, this Full Moon – while a possible source of amazing illumination in so many ways – can drag many souls down into murky recesses of deep-seated feelings, repressed emotions, and even so-called past-life memories. Wisdom dictates that being an ambassador of love and light to our fellow travelers on board Spaceship Earth is the way to travel.” -Mark Lerner

New Moon in Cancer; June 23rd, 2017 ☾ ♋

Intense currents are flowing toward us as the Sun and Moon align in the first water sign of the Zodiac on June 23rd, 2017, at 10:31 PM EDT. This magical New Moon is a time to soften defenses and dive into the dimensions of our soul.

These are perfect days and nights to identify what disturbs our emotional health as we reflect on our past, our conditioning and our instinctual responses for essential feedback.

“Halting your progress before the Sun-Moon rendezvous are Mercury making a caustic, 45-degree link to Vesta (12:27AM), the monthly Moon in Gemini opposition to Saturn in Sagittarius (5:32AM), a void lunar cycle in Gemini starting at 11:46AM and ending when the Moon enters Cancer (3:08PM). Rocking the boat with dear ones as Mars and Juno joust in the heavens is a no-no. Let go of as many old problems as possible to allow the New Moon vibrations to reinforce love, understanding, and goodwill within your extended family circle.” -Mark Lerner

We may experience a longing for closeness with those that we’re at home with and trust to share our true feelings. Emotional exhaustion, a need to retreat, and moodiness are also symptoms of Cancer Moonbeams.

During these sacred moments, proceed with extra sensitivity and expressions of thoughtfulness. Find healthy outlets to nourish and regenerate your soul. Consider how you self-soothe. Know that you deserve the best.

To clarify how this New Moon in Cancer will impact you on a personal level, locate 3° Cancer in your birth chart. This is where fresh energy is being poured. If you have a planet or point from 0° to 7° of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, this New Moon will speak to you directly.

It’s important to be internally clear and meaningful about what we want now. Send your requests out in a wish or a prayer. Focus on where you’re going and make peace with the past. Your idea under this loving New Moon could bloom when the Cancer Full Moon rolls around. xx
