Solar Eclipse 2017

August 21, 2017


Eclipses are extremely potent astrological influences that effect us collectively and personally on a deep energetic level. Eclipses may reverberate for weeks, even months after their initial date impacting us for the rest of our year possibly. Their intensity can be deep, and will often times shake up our lives, sometimes bringing about deep and penetrating changes that hit us at the very dimensional core of our beings.  Eclipse energy is an energy that sometimes may force us to let go, may force us to move on, to change, to be different, to open up to new ways of being, of living. Eclipse help to see and feel things differently. It’a powerful time to go deep within and understand your true motives, understand your traumas, your triggers and how to heal them. Often times when we feel where we are wounded we can heal it, just by shining the light of understanding onto those pieces. It's a key piece of understanding what makes you, you, and what makes you happy and whole. When Eclipses are paired with a New Moon we are often shown to a new path. We get to start over,  we get to plant powerful new seeds of becoming who we want to become. We get to change, for the better, for the best.


With eclipse we are urged to embrace new ways of being, new ways of living day to day and expressing ourselves to others and the world.

Allow yourself to move freely in your mind and the world. It may be time to leave your home all together and move on to a new area as well. Sometimes these realizations can be as painful as they are enlightening. It takes a lot of bravery and courage to pack up and leave town and start over. Whatever your choices are right now, take good care of yourself. Nourish your nerves. Soothe your soul. Get crystal clear. Laugh, dance, cry, sing, paint enjoy as much as you can. This eclipse is here to bring joy, verve and inspiration back into your life. You will get back as much as you put in. 


Capricorn/Capricorn Rising:

The time has come to allow yourself to be open, honest and more free than you’ve ever let yourself be before.  It’s time to allow color, warmth and a softer kind of intensity into your world than you’ve allowed in before. It’s time to break down walls. You are about to be living in a fabulous world of your own creation, but before you move on to your own personal paradise, you need to let go of the past. How can you let go of the past in such a way that strengthens and heals you, that motivates and inspires? How can you become bigger, better and more solid than before? Well before you move into your dream home, some of the pieces of the house are going to have to fall down first Cap. You’ve built a great foundation but some pieces need to shift, to breathe, to move. You're going to have to really learn to let go of the past before you can welcome the new in. I know it’s hard. I know it’s going to take a long time, or what seems like a long time, spent by yourself, journaling like mad, crying in the bathtub, doing things you never do or don’t like to do, but there's also going to be discoveries, and moments of coming alive and reclaiming personal truth. There’s going to be new inspiration and verve creeping into the places that you let go of now. The places that you lay down and say goodbye to are just going to open you up to new and better things. Things that you will eventually be celebrating, things that will eventually flow out of you. But for now, take care of yourself, mourn, let go and feel all of the feelings. It’s all going to happen in time, let yourself be.


Aquarius/Aquarius Rising:

This Solar Eclipse is a bench mark, a marking point for how far you’ve come in managing your personal relationships Aquarius. It’s ain't easy being you, aka being weird, and you’ve had a rough time for a long time now. It’s been challenging feeling heard, feeling understood. Now all that is changing as you finally come into your own. This coming Solar Eclipse and Mercury Retrograde is really going to test your mettle on just how far you’ve come. This is the finish line to a long time of self development and the astrology is turning up the heat to see just how much patience, virtue, compassion and understanding you have. When in doubt in communications, detach not to stop listening to the other person, but to open up a deeper connection to yourself. You have a tendency to think away your feelings and that just won’t work this time around. Before you can change the world you have to change yourself, and how you partner with the important people in your lives. The more in touch you are with yourself, and your self confidence, the better you can do that.  It’s time to be better than before, to be the best Aquarius you can be. It’s time allow your borders to extend further than they’ve ever extended before. Let your pain out, let your sadness out, heal your trauma and own how amazing you are. Know your worth. It’s time to step into the light at the leader you are and that's going to take guts, patience and true understanding of who you really are in this life. Stay positive and all will be revealed in time.


Pisces/Pisces Rising:

The way you live your life is about to change Pisces. The Solar Eclipse is showing you exactly where and how you run yourself into the ground by not taking care of yourself, over expose yourself to the outside world and where your boundaries are not secure enough. There are people, things and habits  in your life that don’t deserve your precious energy and now is the time to let them all go. Your mind, your body, your soul, are all vastly interconnected yet you have a tendency to tell your body what to do like it’s a weird extension of yourself that you can operate like a robot. Your body, mind and heart all need each to function with other and when you put your body in the dumpster but prize your thoughts and actions above all else, you naturally fall out of balance. This Solar Eclipse wants you to not only pay attention to your body, your breathing, your nutrition, your sleep, but it also wants you to loveyourself so much, that you know what’s good for you and you know what’s bad for you. It’s time to let what you don’t need go. It’s time to get super sensual with yourself, with others, and with whatever gets you inspired to not put your physicality on autopilot and numb out. It’s as simple as just feeling into your body, feeling where, how and when you are tensing up, where you're anxious, and why. This eclipse is an amazing time to wipe the slate clean and allow yourself to live in true freedom which you love! Letting go of old ideas of living and being are part of that and this astrology is beckoning you to let go, and level up.
