Unlike the potent Lunar Eclipse on 7th August, the Solar eclipse on 21st August, is likely to be milder. Astrologically speaking, we’ll feel the impact of both of these eclipses. We have already felt the full effect of the powerful Lunar Eclipse on 7th August. Eclipses tend to shake up the status quo and reveal things that are veiled from us.
Solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between earth and the sun, thereby totally or partially obscuring the image of the sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon’s apparent diameter is larger than the sun’s, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. The 21st August total Solar Eclipse is in Leo, which rules the ego and the urge to express ourselves —”I have arrived”! Leo energy is expressive and flamboyant in nature. It makes us fiercely protective of our passion projects and our loved ones. This eclipse lead from the heart and wear our emotions on your sleeves. Avoid getting swept away in your personal theatrics and romantic affairs. The Leo energy can also cause us to upstage those around us, forgetting that each and every person is a valuable member to a team. This is also time to be brave and reveal all that you have been apprehensive about sharing with the world. Though, you could feel quite like a star, be careful of ditching your old friends for new. This is also true for your love relationships as well. You may be attracted to the new or even in some cases an ex will resurface, drawing you to the unfinished possibilities – with the Jupiter – Pluto square digging up things from underneath the surface and magnifying them. Be careful of falling from grace.
Stay true this eclipse, it is a great opportunity to deal with long overdue issues that may have been festering for a while. Make a genuine effort to see your life situation as is, without your past baggage and without a need to get back. Bring out the child in you and have childlike faith and fearlessness.
Focus on things that connect to your soul, something or someone that makes you happy. Start a project close to your heart. This Solar Eclipse you don’t need validation from others on who you are – dive deep within what you want and what gives you happiness.
