LEO NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE
AUGUST 11, 2018
The new Leo moon solar eclipse is the last of this 3-eclipse cycle. Those of us who have planets aspecting the 18-degree Leo New Moon may feel it most.
A Leo New Moon invites us to start fresh in the area of creative self expression. We can see what we want to say and how we want to say it. We can look at what feels authentic at this time.
In artistic terms, we could use a new medium or paint an entirely new subject or incorporate a new style.
In daily life we can tune into our physical vibration, that which emanates from us, and feel if it has some stuff hanging around that we don’t want to take with us as the moon starts, once again, to wax.
Leo rules the heart. It expresses itself through everything it says and does, even by the way it enters a room.
We can look at any aspect of our lives here and see if it is contributing to what we want to create in our lives.
If I want to feel confident and at ease, it helps me to hold my physical body in a confident, relaxed posture when I walk around the town.
If I want to be a happy healthy cook, I learn recipes that feed me on all levels — I don’t just read recipes and continue to eat microwaved dinners.
I participate in the creation that is me.
Mercury is retrograde in Leo until August 18, so you can see there is time for reflection here around how creating and manifesting in life, and how thinking -Mercury- and the creative nature of thoughts- will help to create the life that you want.
Mars will be retrograde until August 27, the day before the next full Moon. Mars is retrograde in Capricorn. We have, since the retrograde started on June 26, been, revamping, or thinking about revamping, structures in our lives.
We are looking at whose rules we have been following and the idea that we want to make and follow our own guidelines. We evaluate what timelines we need or no longer need to follow.
It’s a good time to revamp the physical space in which to create – or find a new space altogether.
Streamlining schedules allows for more rest, more creativity, more fun.
Uranus had a stationary retrograde on August 7 and will be retrograde until early next year.
Subconscious memories may affect us at this time. We may awake having had a flash of insight that brings clarity and potential for relief from longstanding issues.
Self-care, grounding, breathing and some laughter all help to move things through the physical system as Uranus, for now, is retrograde in Taurus.
Allowing excess nervous energy to pour out through the bottoms of our feet will help to regulate how much extra vibration we can take on.
Uranus is the higher expression of Mercury and your higher self/the universe may be wanting to get in touch.
Connect with the heart, feel the grass under the feet, and listen.
