Happy new moon and solar eclipse in Leo, lovlies!
The sun finally shines happy in it own sign, bringing us a solar eclipse + New Moon in regal Leo. And, being the third eclipse in a row, today marks a grand finale to the always somewhat tumultuous eclipse season, as well as a fiery new beginning!
Sun conjunct Moon – as is always the case om a New Moon – represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new one, and is considered one of the strongest aspects in astrology. With a powerful solar eclipse on top of it, every possibility is on the table!
This is an extremely potent time of manifestation, as instead of the normal cycle of four weeks – from one new moon to the next – the intentions you plant now, will have time to ripen over the next six months and sprout to the surface under the next eclipse period in early 2019.
Eclipses have a reputation of creating unexpected and abrupt changes, tossing you so high up into the air it’s impossible to spot where you eventually will land. But pushing past your comfort zone is absolutely necessary to accelerate any growth, and the more you stop resisting and learn to move with the process instead of against it, the easier this process becomes. Resisting change always causes more harm than good, and as the outcome of eclipses tend to be non-negotiable anyways, see if you can trust, surrender and offer whatever intentions you may have to the Universe, the Divine and the highest good of all, rather than demanding a specific outcome.
Eclipses are always game changers, and even though the changes put upon you may seem as a curse at first, they are simply (incredibly well covered up) blessings in disguise, and always for your greater good. Trying to control your process just because you are afraid of going deep, or that it will get messy, will get you nowhere. Mistakes are not bad – they’re human. It’s how we learn. It’s how we grow.
Remember that breakdowns are breakthroughs, and that making mistakes will never dim your light, it will polish it! The time has come to drop perfection! You cannot get back to your true essence before you’ve found the courage to shed all the layers you have put on out of protection, hiding your true nature from the world.
Eclipses are here to shake our foundation, so that we have no choice but to change the destructive and outdated behaviors that we are still clinging to. Release your past. Release your shadow, and welcome your light the same way you welcome the sun reappearing after the eclipse. Remember that all change start with you, and that you have the power to shift and realign with your heart at any given moment.
Welcome awakening to the true power of love, and be as courageous, playful and fiery as the lion, spreading love and light on your path. One of the greatest gifts of this Leo New Moon + solar eclipse is the courage to unmask who we really are, learning to shine our true colors, living from our heart! Passion, fun, hope and courage are a few of the things associated with the fiery Leo and which might bless your life at this time. Find and follow your bliss, your love, and your passion, and maybe this brave and bold New Moon gives you the push you need to step out of your comfort zone and planting seeds for a more courageous, passionate and creative life.
Leo is ruled by the sun, and the sun representing our life purpose, makes this the perfect time to add some soul signature to your life. Why not start to sprinkle a bit of your unique personality into the spaces around you? The playful sign of Leo is not afraid of the spotlight, so don’t be afraid to throw yourself into whatever carries the unique imprint of your heart + soul.
This New Moon the perfect time to plant seeds of intention around embracing our true self-expression. Focus on speaking your mind and tell all of your heart. Commit yourself to honoring whatever nourishes your life force. Trust your intuition and allow freedom of movement. Don’t force it.
Who were you before the world told you who you should be? Take a shot (or two) of confidence and shine as the diamonds that you are. The time has come to live your magic!
