“NEW MOON/SOLAR ECLIPSE”
August 21st, 2017
The New Moon in Leo comes together Monday, August 21st, 2017 which is also a rare Solar Eclipse! The most anticipated and debated astrological event of the Summer is finally upon us.
New Moon Times:
A NEW MOON represents a New Cycle that the cosmos brings into help us create new beginnings. This also happens to be the day of the “Great American Solar Eclipse”, so let’s just get the facts straight:
– NEW MOONS ARE ALSO CALLED “DARK MOONS,” because they give off the lowest light during a calendar month.
– NEW MOONS are when the SUN is Conjunct the MOON. A new moon is a moment when the Sun and Moon are in conjunction, meaning that the Sun and Earth are on the opposite sides of the Moon.
– This NEW MOON is in the sign of Leo astrological this time around.
– On Monday, Aug. 21st the sky will go dark for a short period of time due to the SOLAR ECLIPSE!
– A SOLAR ECLIPSE, as viewed from Earth, occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, fully or partially from the Sun.
– A SOLAR ECLIPSE typically only happens with a NEW MOON, when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction.
– In partial and annular Eclipses, only part of the Sun is obscured; during a total eclipse, the disk of the Sun is fully obscured by the Moon, the Eclipse on August 21, 2017, is a Total one.
This New Moon cycle is the second of two New Moon’s both in Leo in a month. This Solar Eclipse marks the grand finale to this tumultuous “Eclipse Season” and a blazing new beginning on a personal and collective level. Leo is the most dramatic or more like theatrical and radiant sign of the Zodiac signs.
July’s New Moon in Leo was connected strongly to fiery Mars also in Leo, and that fiery energy was the booster to set this energy into motion.
However, the August New Moon’s energy feels more solid, stubborn, resolute, and uncompromising so there won’t be any hesitation, doubt, or resistance allowed at this time!
This New Moon brings with it a mysterious dark shadow that is cast on Earth, due to the “Total Solar Eclipse” also occurring, and this can be a positive influence that helps brings out our intuitive nature, therefore dreams and visions have been quite strong. But it asks us to embrace our weaknesses, and tap into our inner confidence and strength.
The Eclipse is also making a connection to the fixed star “Regulus” the “Heart of the Lion”, so how perfectly fitting for a New Moon in “Leo”. This Star is known as the “little king” and is often associated with royalty and authority, and is believed to be, “the stars, star!”, because of how strongly it affects folks who are in the public eye lives, like movie stars and entertainers.
Regulus adds some serious juice to this rare. cosmic event. Its energy demands nothing less than loyalty and integrity from us, and intense devotion and passion, that only can match this stars warmth, generosity, and brilliance.
*After all, the point of an Eclipse is it helps us accelerate our growth, and it pushes us past our comfort zones, hence why so many of you are feeling anxiety-ridden one minute and completely exhausted the next! This process does move along easier if we move with the energy and give up any resistance to it!*
Astrologically speaking, it doesn’t matter where the shadow of this Eclipse touches our corner of the world, this is a strong energetic gateway that we all are about to walk through, and it creates evolutionary changes within all of us!During this New Moon in Leo, our focus should be on building up our self-confidence by discovering our own paths as individuals. So ask yourself what you want in your life for you, not for your kids or a partner, but just for yourself. This energy also asks us to learn what our special gifts and talents are, and what creative skills we possess. This energy is also about us making a conscious effort to work with others in a more personal way, where we are involved and loving, so working straight from our hearts.
We might enjoy recommitting to an existing romance, hobby, or project that we felt passionate about before. It’s also a good for adding some “play” or leisure time to our lives. Under this potent Leo energy, we have a fighting chance to make amazing changes in our lives and to move forward and progress. For some of us, our circumstances have already demanded we pay more attention to these matters.
The Eclipse is showing us what isn’t working in our lives right now, so we can redo or start something all over again. Something is ending so a new beginning can start!
There are major developments in whatever personal area that’s ruled by Leo in your own personal Astrology Birth Chart, this will occur over the next 3-6 months. However, not everyone gets or feels the same effect from the Eclipse, and certainly not the same intensity. Those folks that have personal planets being activated by the degree of the Eclipse will feel its effects on a very deep personal level.
