We are right in the middle of an intense eclipse season! Two weeks ago, we had the New Moon in Cancer/Solar Eclipse and this Friday, July 27th we will continue this eclipse season with the Full Moon in Aquarius/Lunar Eclipse. This lunar eclipse occurs at 4 degrees of Aquarius and since full moons ask us to find a balance or happy medium between two opposing energies, to truly understand how it will affect you and your life, find which houses in your natal chart 4 degrees of both Aquarius and Leo fall. (If you need help with this, contact me and I’ll help you figure it out.)
The New Moon in Cancer/Solar Eclipse asked us to dig deep within the caves of our soul, our most emotional and vulnerable recesses, to remember what it is that is most precious and cherished to us, what makes our souls sing, what makes us feel alive. The purpose of this intense excavation is here now and like The Fool in the Tarot, we are standing on the precipice!
The sign of Cancer immediately precedes the sign of Leo and where Cancer dives deep inwardly, Leo takes what was found in Cancer and expresses it outwardly. The Sun is at home in Leo, and wherever in your chart the energy of Leo shines is where you express yourself creatively and want to be appreciated for that creative expression. This may take any form that allows your soul to express that precious treasure found in Cancer. When we speak of creative expression, most people think of art, music, dance, performance of some kind and it absolutely can be, but we must not restrict creative expression to those things. Creative expression can take many different forms and this is why it is important to know where these events fall within your own natal chart as each area of the chart corresponds to different areas of life.
The Moon in Aquarius is bringing our attention to the ways in which we are unique and different from those around us and to let those aspects of ourselves shine! Aquarius is a rebellious, thinking-outside-the-box energy and wherever Aquarius lands in your chart is where you need the freedom to follow your own path, unencumbered by your family’s or society’s rules. It’s time to make your own rules and your loyalty to your inner truth should take precedence over any culturally established patterns. With Mars and the South Node on either side of the Moon, there may be a tendency to act in a rebellious, impulsive, or angry way, or to detach emotionally if those around you don’t appreciate or respect your need for freedom, if something triggers an old pattern in you, or pushes your buttons to act in a way you may have thought you had evolved past. These triggers serve a purpose in that they are signaling to you that it is time to work on healing that now and evolve. No need to feed the negativity. Ignore the haters and do your thing!
The Sabian symbols involved in this lunation will help us to bring all of this together and are as follows:
The Sun on the 5th degree of Leo: Rock Formations Towering Over a Deep Canyon
The Moon on the 5th degree of Aquarius: A Council of Ancestors Have Been Called to Guide a Man.
So, where in your life have you come to the edge and must now make a decision to take a risk and jump into the unknown or stay safe on solid ground? Is your intuition urging you forward? Are your spiritual guides nudging you to have faith and take the leap of expressing your truth and your highest self, following your own path and no one else’s to bring your passions and innate treasures out into the world for everyone to appreciate and benefit from your unique gifts?
I would be remiss if I didn’t at least mention the fact that Mercury just went retrograde as well and being this close to the eclipse, you can bet there is a reason. Mercury retrograde is a time for reviewing, re-doing, and going inward with your thoughts and at the time of the eclipse, will be occupying the 24th degree of Leo: Totally Concentrated Upon Inner Spiritual Attainment, a Man is Sitting in a State of Neglect of His Body. In other words, during this time, don’t get so caught up in your spiritual life and evolution that you neglect your physical needs, and vice versa. Use this time to review or take stock of your life and figure out where things may be out of balance especially relating to how you express yourself. Take care of yourself physically AND spiritually, express your true self and don’t be afraid to follow the path that is right for YOU.
Just like the last eclipse, the work you do now for this one will affect the work you do at the next one, the New Moon in Leo/Solar Eclipse on August 11th! I know these are intense times, but you can do it! And you’ll be so glad you did.
