The Solar Eclipse in Leo arrives on Saturday, August 11th at 5:58 AM EDT. Eclipses signal change and this one promises a new chapter. The energy has been building over the last few weeks. Release is ahead, paving the way for fresh starts. This day and the days that surround the eclipse may feel intense, explosive even. A dramatic shake-up is possible. Scandals may erupt. Egos will be tested and the game is going to change. This could be happening in your world – or on the world’s stage. An eclipse in Leo can sometimes indicate the fall of a king or leader. Keep an eye on the news for it could be volatile around this day.
But whatever comes to a head, must. Trust that the upheavals that we’re experiencing over this eclipse season are essential for growth.
This day is ideal for breaking out of old patterns. Where do you need to make a change? What needs to go? What are you resisting? Examine that – and then set new intentions based on your heart’s desire (Leo rules the heart, making this day awesome for intention setting).
Because Leo is associated with the ego, this day may bring about a personal transformation. Let go of the old identity. Shed the old stories and baggage. Reinvent yourself! For those of you who have been playing small, knock that shit off. Leo eclipses favor big, bold moves. SHINE.
If you’ve been creatively blocked, this eclipse can bring a breakthrough – or a new project that lights you up.
In relationships, this marks a period where you can open your heart. Let love in, even if you’ve been disappointed in the past. Do not let those old experiences hold you back from making a deep connection. Above all, practice great self-love on this day. Take care of yourself. Heal those old heart wounds. Bring in the light!
