This August, two eclipses will bring a dramatic light show to the signs of Leo and Aquarius. The first will be a lunar eclipse in Aquarius on August 7, and the second will be a solar eclipse in Leo on August 21, which will be visible across the United States! As an astrologer, I note that eclipses have a most powerful impact on us, as these rare celestial events will ask each of us to personally “eclipse something out” of our lives. What happens above also happens below and this is how astrology works.
Perhaps you can feel that the ground beneath you has already begun to shift in an area of your life where things once felt fixed and stable. Eclipse season means that change is inevitable and once you take a leap of courage, your previous reality will soon dissolve into a much more exciting new reality. Though if you hesitate and hold fast to the past, the rug will be pulled from beneath you anyway. So change is non-negotiable, and that is usually a good thing during this time of year.
The eclipses’ re-alignment of sun and moon represent your personal re-alignment of body and soul. They appear every 6 months to force us to reconnect with who we are and what we have done, and then they point to an important leap of courage. One thing for sure is that “eclipses expedite evolution”. They speed up the soul’s karmic path and shine a bright light on parts of us that may have veered far off course. The path back to center can often be jolting, depending on how far we have strayed. Eclipse medicine will be at its height in August, though it will ripple through your life for the entire year to come. Dive in and be courageous stardust beauties!
