We are having a Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius tonight August 7th/8th depending on where you are located in the world.
Eclipses represent changes and shifts in certain areas of our lives and they usually occur in pairs with a Solar Eclipse at the New Moon before or after. The influence can start weeks before, which sets the tone for the following next series of eclipses.
Eclipse season can be symbolic of a turning page, or even beginning a new chapter, in the story of our life. The series of eclipses is happening in the Aquarius- Leo axis with the upcoming Solar Eclipse occurring in Leo. Eclipses occur near one of the two lunar nodes which intersects on the path of Moon and the pathway of the Sun. Tonight it will be happening near the South Node which is associated with the past and certain aspects of this energy that could be holding us back.
Aquarius is the sign of friends, the team, the group, and the collective. Although we may experience a few positive new developments in relation to this energy, ultimately this is a South Node Lunar Eclipse which is about making changes and even endings in some cases, endings related to what it could be that is holding us back.
In the sky Leo-Aquarius nodal polarity, could be avoidance of our heart's desires and not operating enough from a creative and self-expressive side. The energies of this eclipse reflects necessary changes that could be a quick change in the coming weeks.
This eclipse's trine to Jupiter in Libra offers expansive energy in our relationships and partnerships. Friendships as well, this aspect is combined with a supporting sextile to Saturn in Sagittarius, it helps us look at the big picture. This combination involves everything to do with travel, foreign countries, currencies, education, teaching, marketing, publishing, or anything to do with reaching an audience. There may also be a theme of soul growth, related to bringing in harmony, truth, balance, lawfulness, morals, and justice.
Reflection during this Period
