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.

Solar Eclipse in Leo

We are having a Total Solar Eclipse in Leo tomorrow on Monday, August 21st and in the early hours of August 22nd in the East. This eclipse has been named ‘The Great American Eclipse’ as its pathway of totality will be cutting across the US from coast to coast.

 

Solar Eclipses are like a supercharged New Moon which occur every 6 months. They happen back to back with a Lunar Eclipse which is a supercharged Full Moon. Eclipse periods intertwine with endings and beginnings and in some cases can feel like starting a whole new chapter.

The energies are strongest within a month of occurring which is when related events or circumstances may transpire. The effects of eclipses can still manifest over the following 6 months and gradually leading up to it.

In the lead up to this, we recently had a Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius. Its energies signify changes around our friendships, associates, colleagues, teams, or a collective. It could even have to do with how we express ourselves in these dynamics, and also potentially lead to new growth in relationships and partnerships.

 

We started Mercury retrograde in Virgo on August 12th/13th which will last until September 5th/6th. Mercury Retrograde is a time of adjustments, insights, re visitation, and reorientation. The fact that this one is coinciding with eclipse season really emphasizes significant changes occurring late September, especially in the next 2-3 weeks following this Solar Eclipse.

 

Solar Eclipses always occur when there is a New Moon near one of the two Lunar Nodes, which in this case it is the North Node. The Nodes are where the pathway of the Moon’s orbit crosses the ecliptic which is the pathway of the Sun.

The closer a New Moon is to a Node, the more coverage the Moon will have in blocking the Sun making it more astrologically significant as far as changes are concerned.

 

Leo is ruled by the Sun and it is the sign of the creator, the leader, the performer, and the superstar. It is about love and heart centered self-expression, whether it is in creative efforts, blissful activities, or in relationships. Leo is passionate, and inspiring, which is what earns Leo natives the spotlight they may desire. Leo is also associated with the inner child, children and has childlike and playful qualities.

 

This Solar Eclipse is aligned with Regulus, which is the brightest star that is closest to the Sun’s ecliptic pathway. This is the “heart of the Lion of the Leo constellation.

Solar Eclipse- Ring of Fire- New Moon 

We are having a Solar Eclipse in Pisces. While it will only be visible in parts of South America and Africa, as with every eclipse, the astrological importance will still affect the whole planet! 

This is an annular eclipse, which is when the Sun is almost completely blocked from the Moon except for the outer edges. The moon is it’s furthest distance from the Earth.  
This type of eclipse is referred to as a ‘ring of fire,’ thanks to its unique appearance.
Today 2/26/17 is a day to truly celebrate and honor yourself for   the events that have took place in your life, all that you have been through. The Ring of Fire  New Moon Solar Eclipse is going to be sending us waves of positive energy that is highly motivating, eye-opening and focused.

To New Moon in Pisces,

Kelly Krishna 🙂
