Ready or not, here it comes! Happy solar eclipse + New Moon in regal Leo, lovelies!
The second Leo New Moon in a row, and one of the most anticipated astrological events of the year is upon us, marking both 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 on a New Moon – representing the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new one, is considered one of the strongest aspects in astrology, and 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 solar eclipse in February 2018.
This New Moon + solar eclipse is also powered up by a trine with wildcard Uranus – the planet of change and innovation. And even though trines are usually considered positive aspects, Uranus – as do eclipses – has a love for sudden 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, so 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! The playful sign of Leo is not afraid of the spotlight, making this New Moon the perfect time to plant seeds of intention around embracing our true self-expression. 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!
