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!

Solstice Dance

The Solstice Dance

Happy mid-winter solstice in the southern hemisphere; mid-summer in the north. This is a time to celebrate, appreciate and feel gratitude for the blessings in life. Let's count them! Fuel our goals, aspirations and desires by honoring the connection to life, love, nurturing and joy. Make this whole week a an inner, and outer celebration.

Think of the Solstice Dance as a turning point, symbolic of endings and new beginnings. With the New Moon, Mercury and Chiron closely connected to the o degree Cancer sun (the solstice point), our intentions can magnify. If you focus this energy, there's nothing that can not be accomplished.

Technical Notes

In Astrology, two major things happen at the solstice.

1) the Sun is crosses the AP – the zero degree “Aries” point. What? The sun is nowhere near Aries. It’s 0 degrees of Cancer.

True, but all the Cardinal points of the zodiac, 0 Aries, 0 Cancer, 0 Libra and 0 Capricorn are collectively called the “Aries Point”. If you take a square piece of paper and fold it so each corner is in the same place, you’ll see why.

2) the sun crosses triggers the Draconic Nodes, releasing energy to move you along your path (especially if you know what that path is!).

If you want to fast track your abundance, creativity, well-being, love and enlightenment, then focus your thoughts this week, up to and through the New Moon in Cancer, for maximum results.

Using your Chart to Amp up Solstice Intentions

It's easy to use your chart to amp up your intentions. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Spot where the four 0 degree Cardinal signs are in your chart. Think greet, engage, give, receive. This is where you do your Solstice Dance of enthusiasm and joy!
  2. Hone in on 0 degrees of Cancer in your chart. Give it an 8 - 10 degree orb either way. (20 Leo to 10 Cancer). Any planets there? What house is the focus on? Transits to that house?
  3. Notice how you feel in this area of life, what you want and then relax about it. Let the universe do her thing!
