Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo 2018

Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo 2018

The third and final eclipse of summer 2018 - a partial solar eclipse in Leo - is arriving on August 11th so go on, roll out the red carpet. A royal fresh start is coming your way!

Eclipses always come in pairs and, on rare occasions like this summer, you can even get three in a row. This only happens when the cosmos is hell-bent on getting you to change your ways and, right now, it’s not holding back any punches... The summer eclipse season - July and August 2018 - has been dramatic to say the least! While lunar eclipses, like the one we had last month, occur on a full moon and release pent up energy, solar eclipses, i.e. new moons, put lots of energy your way to help you get unstuck and initiate something new. If you want to make any changes in your life, this is the time!

The August 2018 partial solar eclipse packs a punch! Why? The eclipse forms a pattern known as Thor’s Hammer and this gives it some swing… Saturn and Chiron hold the handle, narrowing your path until you have no choice but to follow your heart. You might feel resistant to change, your worst insecurities playing up. But it is fear that will eventually push you to come down on what you want like a ton of bricks! Perfect. That’s just the force you need to crack down on that hardened surface and break new ground. This is the time to listen to your heart. A new reality is taking shape. Have a say in it! With so many squares in the sky (Mars-Uranus, Venus-Saturn, Saturn-Chiron, Mercury-Jupiter), there is struggle and strife aplenty. But this is just what you need to make that change. Don’t be afraid now!

The 11 August 2018 solar eclipse in Leo gives you the strength to kick-start a more joyous and creative life, to open the drapes and let the sun in. It’s a confidence booster! Dramatic and flamboyant, it inspires you to face your fears - fears that have been holding you back for a long time. The Sun and Moon are conjunct Mercury retrograde in Leo and square Jupiter in Scorpio so you’ll be making ambitious plans. Big words are not enough though. This is the time to plant the seeds of your new life.

With Mercury retrograde conjunct the eclipse, you don’t have all the information you need and you might be going in blind, but this is your chance, nonetheless. Be bold! Just hold off signing papers that you cannot revisit at a later date. Old matters - fears, ambitions - come out of the shadows and into the light now. You can rethink a situation and have your say, make a fresh start with something long overdue, or clear away the cobwebs that dulled your heart. This could also bring a second chance at happiness with a person or project from your past. Use the two weeks following the 11th to plant the seeds you want to grow into something new in your life.

Your environment is changing, dear Gemini.  Others might be going back on their word, you might be coming across people from your past, or it might be time to reconsider an idea you had ditched previously. In this restless climate, new information comes to light that can help you make a new beginning in your way of thinking, your neighbourhood, your social network. It looks like your circle of friends, as well as your finances, have put you in a bit of a vice and you can’t really escape their grip. You have no choice but to listen closely and learn!

Are you feeling undervalued and underpaid, dear Cancer? Are you earning enough but not doing something you love?

Others are not being particularly generous at the moment but don’t let your fear of judgment or failure keep you from sticking to your values or asking for what you’re worth. Time to turn over a new leaf and raise your self worth - and your bank balance!

If you’re looking to rekindle a personal or professional partnership, you might be worried about others’ intentions now and see old demons come back to haunt you. Don’t promise too much. And take what others say with a pinch of salt too. Let someone show you another way and be careful not to hurt others with your words.
