Eclipse Season Gifts in Perspective

In ancient times, eclipses were linked to dramatic events, political, geological, existential. Hence the apprehension many feel when an eclipse is impending. Luckily, it's not the 1400s anymore, and we aren't locked into a single perspective. We decide how we will align with these Sun-moon-node cycles. Most importantly, we focus on the gifts they bring.

By checking where the eclipse falls in your chart, we can be open to the positive, creative change on offer. It's easy to do. Just follow these simple steps.

For the partial lunar eclipse on Aug 7th/8th:

  1. Look at your natal chart (created on Astro.com or your fav software)
  2. Check where 15 Degrees of Leo and 15 degrees of Aquarius fall
  3. Focus on those HOUSES to see where you will receive your cosmic gifts

For the total solar eclipse on Aug 21st/22nd:

  1. Look at your natal chart (created on Astro.com or your fav software)
  2. Check where 28 degress of Leo is in your chart
  3. Look at that HOUSE to open to the kick-ass fresh start on offer

Partial Lunar Eclipse August 7th/8th

The full moon on August 7th/8th is a partial eclipse, not as potent because of the wide orb to the Nodes (10 degrees!) It still has loads of energy ready to tap. It throws a beam to Jupiter and Mars, combining Moxie with opportunity. Because Mercury is about to turn Rx, you want to treat this as a consolidating time. What can you wrap up? Complete? Feel satisfied with? Remember the check the houses for areas of life you can count your blessings. This is at time to look on the bright side, and be open to major improvements.

Total Solar Eclipse August 21st/22nd

The powerhouse eclipse of August is on the 21st/22nd. This is a TOTAL solar eclipse (New Moon) with the North Node only 3 degrees away. Basically bang on! The house that holds 28 degrees of Leo is where you point. Be ready to change up your look, attitude and perspective here. The more you go into transform-for-the-better mode, the more benefits you'll receive. Start practicing now by breathing deeply, taking in every experience and feeling grateful.

This eclipse pulls in powerful allies: It squares Mars and trines Uranus, gods of initiation and radical reinvention. Technical Note - The Moon goes VOC at the moment of the eclipse meaning those links to Mars and Uranus are already over by the time of the event. If you've done your house work, been honest with yourself and others and are not repressing your true desires, this is going to be a blast of 'new beginnings' mojo!

Full Moon by Transit

Up until now, since the New Moon in Cancer on June 24th, you have probably been in a building up phase where you add to your projects, start new things, boost attention to established plans or even 'start over' in some area of life. Now, during the full moon phase, you integrate the fresh energy, releasing what isn't working and solidifying what is. In the Cancer-Capricorn dynamic, you want to find balance between successful career or outer life and secure, comfortable, nurturing home/inner life.

Because of the close contacts with Mars, Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto, you'll be emotionally invested. Full moons are about making decisions so we can advance along the path, especially if there's been a period of stasis and you want to get un-stuck.  With Pluto in Capricorn you may feel stronger than usual, more confident. More tenacious too, so be aware. Mars heats things up. You will want to get your way.

This energy could give you the confidence to make a choice that's been hovering in the background for some time. Trust that sure-fired feeling in your guts.

If you experience any level of rage or victim mode, give yourself a time out, and decide later, when the waters calm.

July Full Moon Tips

Remember, the full moon in Capricorn is conjunct Pluto, opposite sun (of course) and Mars, square Jupiter and sextile Neptune. It amps up the Sun/Mars-Jupiter-Pluto T-Square, wherever this is happening in your chart.

Notice any contrast you are feeling. Just notice, that's all.

Breathe, release, let go of any stress or angst. It's not a time to micromanage or try to 'fix' things or 'make them better.'

Be at peace with what is.

There are solutions and pathways that lead you forward, but you won’t see them until you show the grudge match the door.

Stop gnawing old bones and shake yourself free.

Step into to the high clean winds of release.

Not sure where to apply this drop the tolerations energy?

Let's talk about it here, in the comments.

If you want to take it further, focus on where this event is in your chart and practice total release of anger, resentment, frustration or disappointment in that area of life.

Basically, catch and release your judgments, of self and others.

Appreciate everything along the way. It’ll change your life.

Discussion
