What Really Happens When there is a Solar Eclipse in Leo
Eclipse Thrive Guide
On Aug. 21, a Solar Eclipse will travel across the USA, so the lights go out in the sign of Leo. Here’s how an eclipse works - astrologically speaking: Our Sun light encodes information. So when our Moon crosses over the path of our Sun in a Solar Eclipse like the one today, everything goes dark for a while - it’s as if radio station of planet earth turns off and the ‘power goes out’ for a moment in time. And never again will we go back to that same original power source of as before. New light-encoded information is being processed during an eclipse.
By the time the Moon travels across and clears the other side of our Sun, a brand new post-eclipse light will begin to shine from our Sun. New beats broadcast from our Suns radio station, as the channel has forever changed. And so, after an Eclipse, this is why we can no longer dance to the same old music anymore, whether it be a job, a thought, a relationship, a home, or a habit. That old power source no longer exists because there has been a sort of power outage and a cosmic upgrade in the heavens.
Lean in to the new challenge that is way outside from your old comfort zone. Trust the Eclipse path and let it work with you. Eclipses are here to help us to evolve.
This one is an invitation to turn off the power in one area of your life, and in fact if you don’t, the cosmic forces may just help pull the rug. The good news is that this is a friendly Eclipse in Leo conjunct the North Node, meaning that you will feel a strong gush of wind behind you pushing you much faster than you could run on your own - as if you are not even the one steering for a while. It angles to Saturn and Uranus in the sky, showing me that the journey will be full of synchronicity and a secure landing is very possible when you make this leap into a bright unknown.
However it will be most important that you stay in your radiant light (despite the fear and shadow self that can also creep up during this time). A good daily practice in Eclipse Season is to imagine that there is an actual sun beaming out from your heart and shining in all directions around you. Also Citrine is a stone ruled by the Sun so wearing it, can also help you to repel the darkness and help you to stay in your light, opening up to your infinite potential.
This Eclipse will point to where we are in the way of our soul potential by shining a glaring light on the shadows. Because of this stark brightness, things that you need to see will be suddenly exposed and you may be pulled from a deep rut that you did not even realize was a rut to begin with.
Let go and let the Eclipse work its magic. An old version of self will begin to easily fall away as you embrace the new courageous and authentic quality of light that now radiates from your heart.
