Solar Eclipse Leo New Moon

A solar eclipse is just like a regular new moon where the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun. However, a solar eclipse is more powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun. Solar Eclipse August 2018 is a partial solar eclipse so most of the Sun will still be visible. The new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new cycle.

 

The New Moon August 2018 is at 18 degrees Leo is a partial solar eclipse. The solar eclipse August 2018 astrology is mainly influenced by a conjunction to Mercury retrograde. The August 11th solar eclipse is complex and difficult to decipher because of the number of planetary aspects involved. Mercury conjunct the eclipse reinforces the creative strategic intelligence. It means this eclipse will make you think and question, discuss and deliberate. Mercury retrograde complicates all negotiations and decision. It can play havoc with your thoughts, communications, travels, and electronics. Take extra care with your words and try not to react too quickly in any arguments or if provoked.

 

Mercury retrograde can make you feel anxious. So take some time out if you start to feel overwhelmed by the hectic pace. You may find yourself dwelling on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meeting up with people from your past. Negotiations and business matters will be in a state of flux. Some important details will not yet be available, or other people won’t be reliable or honest.

 

The theme today during the solar eclipse gives courage and the fighting spirit, but also the creative intelligence and wisdom to find the truth before passing judgment and taking action. It may spark your generous side but even then, make sure you do not leave yourself short. Have fun but don’t party too hard.

August 2018 Energies

June, July and August Energies are entwined in a deepening of connection. Connection is just another word for family. From the Earth Family of June, to the Universal Family of July—we meet in the middle of the Heart Family in August. What a fabulous reunion!

In essence, these months have been about strengthening and clarifying the Merkaba; our spiraling, spinning vehicle essence of Light, shown as two opposite triangles, yet that is the simple geometric version.

These months are shifting us into more alignment with the universal laws of the subtle realm. One of those important universal laws is Time. When you embody your presence, the circular nature of Time becomes whole within you. The strength and wisdom of the past meet the potential of the future in you. Now.

We are being tasked to embody a deeper level of connection. Finding the inner courage to forgive, to take a creative risk, to connect more deeply and allow your unique and sacred Light to Love in a new way.

August brings us a beautiful energetic on 8/11 as the Leo energy eclipses what has been released in July. It has a feeling of celebration to me. Celebration is an interesting one. It is a choice and it is internal. It isn’t always a clear path of celebration, it often marks a point of change, like a wedding or a graduation. While those are moments to be celebrated, they also have a bittersweet letting go that accompanies any new path.

The energy of August is supporting us to connect opposites into a powerful weaving of new potential. You are the catalyst for that new potential, Light-worker. It takes courage to let your sacred Light shine, but you are so worth it!  Roar your beautiful Love into the world, even in your silent gaze! Weave your Light of Love with the past and future in your powerful now.

FULL MOON in Capricorn – Strawberry Moon 2018 

The Strawberry Moon will spectacularly light up the night and morning skies Tonight and on Thursday, June 28, when it reaches its full moon phase.

So why exactly is the June full moon known as the Strawberry Moon?

The unusual name can be traced back to the Native American Algonquin tribes.

By naming the various phases of the moon, the Algonquin were able to keep track of the seasons.

And the Strawberry Moon signalled the time was right to harvest ripening wild berries.

Strawberry Moon signalled the time was right to harvest ripening wild berries.

This Full Moon is also pivotal because it precedes the Solar Eclipse on July 12, representing a time when a course change can make a significant difference in how our upcoming eclipse season unfolds. It will be up to each of us to observe the events that unfold this week and take personal responsibility for changing that which is within our power to change – even if that change is merely a shift in attitude or perspective.

Spring into Summer: June Energetic Forecast

June has already gotten off to a busy start and the energy builds all month with some interesting highlights that include Mars and Neptune retrograde, lots of energy around values, and some opportunities to put what we have been working on so far into action.

This is the 6th month of 2018, the year is half over. As with previous years, the second half of the year will be different than the first, depending on how we choose to implement and integrate the energy. June’s themes include the energy around partnerships and relationships and how that plays out in our life. This is true in all relationships and on all levels, individually and globally. Also, value and karma are highly aspected. We’ll see strong community action this month, the family of humanity is awakened and coming together.

The relationship and partnership themes of June will push us to consider how we connect with others. After all, we relate to those we are in relationship with and our partners are those who become part of our energy field. How do we make those choices? What roles do we play in these relationships and partnerships? Are we the healer, the teacher, the giver, and the source of energy? If so we may find that those situations become unfulfilling and run out of energy for us because they are based on the 3D healing paradigms. If we want expansive, creative 5D relationships, we need to seek equality as a foundation in every relationship and partnership.

Karma is highly active this month because Mercury zips through its home sign of Gemini in the first two weeks of June. While Mercury is downplayed as a small player in the zodiac, I think it also rules karma and our karmic relationships. Look at how much chaos Mercury retrograde can create in our lives. Karmic cycles are coming up for review and the question is, do we want to continue on that hamster wheel or not? The choice is ours, and the karma is over when we decide to no longer participate.

Value is a big June issue this month. Every partnership is either an energy drain or an energy expander. Look at your relationships this month and decide whether you are willing to continue to uphold those relationships that do not add value to your life. You know which ones they are, the ones that are filled with drama, trauma, chaos, and pain.

Take note of what comes to your awareness this month – what do you notice, who or what crosses your path? Look at the choices that you are presented with and which path you decide to take. Relationships and partnerships now have to be balanced, equal, and harmonious. Energy flows must be reciprocal so we give and receive equally. Karmic cycles and soul contracts must end now, we cannot move forward into full 5D integration until we heal those soul wounds, get our energy fields clear, and stop living in the energy of the past. Intentions create paths for energy to flow into, make yours big, blissful and beautiful. The world is changing rapidly and light shines all over the world which are lighting the path for those who are awakening with a desire to know the light of joy, peace, love, and truth. Shine on, get ready for the change of season from spring to summer! It’s going to be a great rest of the month!!

Planetary News: Neptune Stations Retrograde

Neptune will travel between 13° – 16 ° of Pisces from June 18 until November 24. Moving incredibly slowly, this planet only traverses a small patch of sky each year. It’s main aim is to open us up to an experience of oneness, and when we allow ourselves some time to space out and connect with non-linear aspects of the self, we can have a pretty good time.

On June 18th, as it stations retrograde we are reminded of the importance of softening our gaze, relaxing our shoulders, and breathing in the beauty of life’s infinite inspirations.

Ganesh: Cosmic Oracle Card Reading

It’s important at this time to move beyond the limitations of ‘it’s not meant to be’ and focus on ‘if this is for my highest good then the universe will move me there safely’. Ganesh not only brings a clear light to your external situation but also helping you clear up any inner conflicts. When obstacles arise, know that they are just reminders that you care about your path and that you have the ability to change your current situation. Ganesh is here to help and give thanks to him for clearing the way. To increase your connection to #ganesh, you could chant in Sanskrit: ‘Om, Gam, Ganapataye, Namaha!

TONIGHT: New Moon In Taurus

Taurus energy is all about finding security and stability, especially when it comes to our health, family, and money.

Taurus New Moon tonight on May 15 is all about change. Change is how we grow, change is how we evolve, and the more we can accept the changes that come, the easier we can navigate through our lives.

It is important to remember also that no change happens on its own. All changes are part of a much bigger collective that goes beyond just you. Every change in direction creates a domino effect that can be felt across the entire Universe, and this effects us all, whether we realize it or not.

While seeking security from external things is sometimes necessary, true security and safety comes from within, and it also comes through accepting that nothing is ever guaranteed to anyone.

In life, the only guarantee is change, and learning how to accept the changes that come your way is what this New Moon beginning is all about.

Everything in life has its own start and finish line. Along with this energy of change, the Taurus New Moon greets us with a new beginning, and a new way of looking at things.

love k ❤
