We are fully immersed in Eclipse season as we enter August on the coattails of the potent July 27th Lunar Eclipse and looking ahead to a rare third Eclipse approaching. This Eclipse season will see its third Eclipse as a New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse on August 11th in the sign of Leo at 18 degrees. We have not had two Solar Eclipses in one cycle since 2011 and will not see it again until 2029. Leo is a fire sign ruled by the Sun and represents light, warmth, and our inner child. When the Sun’s light is eclipsed by the Moon, we will see a shift in our light and our ability to shine. We will feel the rising up of our subconscious self and the suppressed emotions of our inner child coming out to play. This Eclipse is asking you to connect with your child-like innocence and open your heart to fully experience the world. To live from the heart of the Lion and walk with power and conviction towards your desires. Embrace that inner child and work through the memories of your past and all that comes with it.
Want to dive deeper into your subconscious? Join me at my upcoming workshop, “Understanding Your Karma: An Astrological Perspective” at The Subtle Mind on August 30th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Register here and email me (Ashley@AshleyTracey.com) your full birth information, including time and place, prior to the event to receive your karmic axis birth chart to deepen your exploration.
Going inward will come easy during the month of August as six major planetary bodies (Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto, and Chiron) retrograding with Uranus stationing retrograde on August 7th. When we have this many planets retrograde at once, it means we are called to go inward and bring awareness to our own development. Self-examination is critical to our progress forward. We are being directed to examine how our past actions have created our current reality.
The climatic point of the month happens at the Pisces Full Moon on August 26th. This Full Moon will magnify all that has been brewing behind the scenes. Pisces energy is influenced by its ruler Neptune. Neptune is the deep dark waters of our Soul and the ability for us to connect with our intuition and psychic abilities. The Sun will be in Virgo at this time, allowing us to ground our higher realms of thinking into practical daily routines, specifically centered around work and health. This Full Moon will help us see the intuitive signs a bit clearer in our everyday life. Signs that will point to changes we can make to clear negative patterns and create a balance between our past and our future.
with light and love,
