Solar Eclipse

Solar Eclipse - Birth

"Life is a journey, not a destination."
—Ralph Waldo Emerson

This week brings the second Leo New Moon (August 21st, 11:30 AM PDT 28° Leo), continuing the journey of individuation that was initiated under the first Leo New Moon (July 23rd, 2:45 AM PDT 0° Leo). If we think of the last New Moon as the beginning of a gestation process, we can view this week's New Moon (and the notable Solar Eclipse that is visible in much of North America) as a birth process. The importance of making connections and building friendships and alliances is crucial to making use of the cascading series of insights that we find. There is an extraordinary amount of high energy Fire Sign emphasis. The high energy is structured at least a bit by the Mars-Saturn trine which culminates on Tuesday. However, the New Moon trines Uranus, bringing a strong demand for independence, which may initially blind us to the importance of cooperation, teamwork and the robust give and take of new ideas and insights. Nonetheless, by the end of the week, we emerge from our metaphorical shell and begin to sort through the the wealth of new insights. The Sun arrives in Virgo on Tuesday, moving towards the inferior conjunction with the retrograde Mercury. The Virgo Sun shifts our focus towards deeper analysis and helps us to embrace the process of expanding our perspective by seeking out the widest range of available new ideas and insights.

We begin the week in a rather rosy glow of charm and friendship. However, Monday's Solar Eclipse New Moon shifts our focus in surprising ways, making it much more difficult to listen to anything but our own unique perspective and insight. The Sun moves into Virgo and Mars trines Saturn on Tuesday, bringing some structure and an orderly process to help us sort through our new insights. Wednesday brings strong temptations to take reckless or hasty actions without having fully embraced the necessary cooperative approach, possibly leading to some disappointment and disillusionment. Venus squares Uranus on Thursday, creating extra pressure and forcing open the doors to broader cooperation and teamwork. Vulnerability is high on Friday and the Libra Moon creates a considerable amount of indecision. By Saturday, we seem to fully embrace the importance of a robust give and take and settle down enough from the week's high energy to fully explore a wide scope of ideas and opinions.
