The great North American Solar Eclipse is tomorrow, August 21st 11:50am CST reaching full potential at 1:22pm ending at 3:02pm on the polarity of Leo and Aquarius. Eclipses are a punch in the fabric of “time”. They’re a bookmark on the main theme for the entire unfolding, impending story yet to be told. They don't cause upheaval when they happen. They set into motion an energetic momentum which picks up over several weeks and lasts many months. This eclipse occurs at the 29th degree of Leo (Sun) + Aquarius (Moon) check your chart for aspects and conjunctions in tight orb. The axis of Leo [ creation, self love, vitality, strength of personal determination + will ] and Aquarius [ energetic + spiritual wisdom, radical change or revolution, humanity, new ideas, and freedom ] itself governs many forms art, genuine love for others + humanity, and social vision with a very dramatic approach to resistance and protest.
If chaos surrounds and drowns step into the perspective that our creative vision as a whole is being repainted within a framework of a more genuine cosmic social order. We’re in a season of efficacious change. Growing pains hurt. Until we arrive, the most toxic parts of the supremacist cis-hetero patriarchy [ and the symptoms of consumer programming ] will fight for their last breaths in a desperate attempt to survive + continue to thrive. We’re also dropping any useless habits, people, or belief systems ourselves. The world is on fire. The deep personal deaths we’re all experiencing is clearly reflecting in the wider themes and vise versa. Soon the little fires will expand, as the heart of Leo's flame fans over us within the Aquarian networking wind. Shadow Leo represents kings maddened with power and greed. While shadow Aquarius seeks to avoid genuine compassion and understanding for others with selfish ideations and radical actions. Being your most genuine self is the best way to suck out the poison. Expect the poison to bite back and want a return. Try to disengage as best you can.
To reach full potential we’re Incorporating forgiveness into the fold where we can and cutting cords with anyone who hurts our heart. Your boundaries directly effect your energy and your self worth. Without boundaries anyone can tear down your ability to fully create a life worth existing for. Don't let people walk all over you. Now is the time to reclaim your power and show the world who you are. Keep feeding the mouth of truth. Take the veil off more often and show others your real self. Even if it feels ugly, someone else will recognize your raw, honest, and open heart and follow suite. This is a network reaction. Help others because you can. Offer love when it’s needed. Support the neurotransmitter broadcasting system. Feed it what it loves and keep the protection on point.
The static of this event axis rules dramatic acts of glamouring to gain attention, energy vampyrism, great acts of ego entitlement, angry leeches acting out, and grumpy frauds that feel fairly uncomfortable. Try to take some real Leo inspired down time with the best of everything in pleasure and self care you can imagine. Pay greater merit to your intuition, your gut feelings, and the way you react to energy. Gaping heart wounds or scars from long ago may reopen and fester. The next six months starting soon as now is an excellent time to have regular energy work done. Do it for yourself. Do it for everyone you want to see succeed. Because there are countless motivated others just like you too. Waking up to that love is unreal. It will only grow into a greater fire. As the old world burns we will shed our skins into the darkness and step forward. Open to everything that we can take in and filter through our old and broken hearts. We'll do it for ourselves and thereby, for the greater good. We have value and we can assimilate it into a creative reality. The fire walkers of our time. Step forth.
