Wild and free!
Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius, 7th August at 15 degrees, 18.10 UT.
An Eclipse opens a portal, releasing waves of energy that is available to us all, giving us a rare opportunity to get in touch with and listen to the inner voice of our intuition, our inner knowing and wisdom, our inner compass.
It is the beginning of an Eclipse cycle that is ushering us into a new and transformative life-changing phase at immense speed, taking us to our next evolutionary level.
The pressure may feel quite intense, as this Lunar Eclipse marks the grand finale of three Jupiter-Pluto tense squares that have been shaking up everything from the personal to the political since November 2016. Pushing us to step up to our personal power and inner greatness.
The focal point of this Lunar Eclipse, is the rare “Finger of God” constellation. A finger of God shows a special life transforming mission.
We are presently in the midst of a karmic mission on both a collective and personal level.
A “Finger of God” constellation looks similar to a pyramid, which dynamically pushes us along the path of our fated destination.
At the top of the pyramid is the Sun in Leo conjoined to Mars the warrior. At the base, are Pluto to one side and Neptune to the other, whose energies are seeking release through the Sun and Mars, causing huge tension, similar to a pressure cooker or a volcano about to erupt. The energy and power needs to be released by taking action (Mars) so that we can materialise our wants and desires (Sun). Pluto and Neptune need us to achieve this by following our passion (Pluto) with faith and vision (Neptune).
We can achieve anything we want with this constellation, the Sun and Mars in Leo, promises us everything from fame, success to self-realisation and expression of who we really are. Making the very most of our talents and passion through our inner fire, symbolised by the fire sign of Leo.
This Lunar Eclipse, is a wonderful time for romance, fun and play. Any social activities, as well as love, will be ramped up by the fire energy of the Sun and Mars in Leo. Important synchronicities, people, opportunities and new loves can enter our life now and between the Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 21st August.
Each Eclipse brings a new lesson with it to learn and to master; it’s a chance to move up to the next level of our development.
In the sign of Aquarius, this Lunar Eclipse is about how you live out your true free spirit, reigniting that part of you that feels wild and free. The Sun and Mars in Leo and the upcoming Solar Eclipse in Leo, wants us to rediscover our inner joy, to be creative, have fun, laugh and to spread our shining light to others, while embracing our inner sense of freedom.
This Lunar Eclipse gives us an opportunity to leave behind any emotional heaviness behind us, it’s time to enjoy life to the full!
“The free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it – basically because you feel good, very good, when you are near or with them.”― Charles Bukowski
We can feel a sense of restlessness and the urge for adventure, (re)awakening our sense of wonder. It’s about dreaming and imagining, but also having the courage to chase our dreams, as Mars and the Sun in the courageous sign of Leo spurns us on.
“I’m restless. Things are calling me away. My hair is being pulled by the stars again.” ~ Anaïs Nin
The Moon and the Sun make a wonderful aspect to Jupiter the planet of good luck, expansion and joy. Signialising that our hopes and needs are just within our reach.
During a Lunar eclipse, the Earth casts a shadow on the Moon. As the Earth’s shadow blocks the light to the Moon, something similar takes place best likened to a restart to our computer. A reboot, a reprogramming takes place.
Lunar Eclipses, in particular, are times of high emotion, and they bring awareness. The Sun and the Moon, our animus and our emotions, are on opposite sides of the sky, as if the other were a mirror. In the sign of Aquarius, we have enough detachment and objectivity to recognize any imbalance between our Ego`s wants and desires (Sun) and our inner most emotional needs (Moon)
A pivotal change and major shift in awareness can take place now and in the coming weeks towards your relationships and love.
Something buried and hidden in your subconscious, especially on an emotional level, as the Full Moon rules our emotions, can suddenly come to light. Something that has been blocking us, perhaps even since many years, that stops us being true to ourselves and finding happiness. The Moon in astrology represents our emotions, who we really are, on a deep down soul level, as well as our inner child.
More often than not, our ego represented by our Sun sign and our wants, tends to ignore and subdue the voice of the Moon that represents our needs and our inner child. Which inevitably sooner or later, can result in becoming emotionally out of balance. We may have got what we want, the new job, the promotion, etc. (Sun) but what about our emotional needs? (Moon) Do we feel emotionally secure and fulfilled?
Many ignore their inner child and voice for many years, resulting, at some point, sooner or later, in depression or anxiety attacks. That is the alarm bell ringing, loud and clear, to get back into balance and in touch with your true emotional needs.
We can free ourselves from emotional baggage and dysfunctional emotional patterns at this Lunar Eclipse so that we will be able to take optimal advantage of the up coming immensely powerful and positive Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 21st August, that will help us to achieve our wants, desires as well as our needs.
The sign of Aquarius is known for their revolutionary qualities and we have a chance to revolutionise the way we think, live and love.
There may well be an opportunity for singles to meet new, exciting and passionate new loves, as Venus in cancer is coming up to an opposition to Pluto and square Jupiter between now and the next Solar Eclipse.
All Eclipse’s are close to the North Nodes of fate, making the Eclipse time highly fated. It’s destiny, putting you back onto the right path and if necessary making a course correction. Fated people and events can happen between now and the end of August, potentially taking you on a completely new and exciting path.
The Lunar Eclipse conjoined to the South Node of fate, is a balancing out of karma, bringing our past actions to fruition for good and the bad, personally and collectively.
We need to learn from our past mistakes, release the past and embrace our future and true life path (North Node) with greater self-confidence, belief in ourselves and optimism.
The ruler of the lunar Eclipse,Uranus, has just stationed retrograde, putting emphasis on our need to be true to our own unique self. There could be a need for greater freedom, even a need to break away from whatever we feel is limiting in our lives from within and without. It’s a great time to break away from self-destructive habits in all forms.
We’re feeling the freedom loving and rebellious energies of Uranus particularly strongly now.
Uranus wants us to celebrate our own uniqueness, our individuality. To live out our own special kind of crazy.We need to live out our individuality and do it our way, without worrying what others may think.
“You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.”- Robin Williams
The North Node of fate in Leo is making a positive trine to Uranus. We feel the evolutionary urge to embrace change. We can feel inspired and creative and have a heightened sense of our own special uniqueness.
We can gain a real sense now, of where and how, our future path to happiness lies.
The Sun in Leo and Moon in Aquarius, wants to celebrate that there is only one special version of you. To be proud of who you are.
