Today is the big day! Total eclipse on the west coast of America but most of us will have at least a partial eclipse. Check out the link below to see how the eclipse will be viewed from your zipcode.
Below is an excerpt from Astrologer, Lisa Zimmerman’s newsletter regarding this eclipse.
There are a few extra notable elements about the astrology of this Solar Eclipse:
* It’s on a Fixed Star called Regulus, which is The Heart of the Lion. Higher expressions of Regulus are: independence, courage, confidence, power, authority, leadership, as the proud ruler. Not afraid to fight for a cause and make their mark on the world.
The downside and lower expression of Regulus: revenge and pettiness. Sound like anyone we know? This is the karma that will bring you down, so heed the message to let go, forgive and focus on your own journey.
* Uranus (change, genius) is in perfect harmony with this Solar Eclipse, instigating an easy, new path of opportunity that can come your way out of the blue! How fabulous is that? Don’t be too cautious, check it out!
* The North Node of Destiny sits on this Solar Eclipse, moving us forward, collectively and personally if this hits your chart directly. Even with the chaos that we’re enduring, we are being moved forward. Even the shadows that are being exposed have a purpose that ultimately will be good. Consider it the first step in a cleanse of sorts.
* Mars (action, the warrior) is in harmony with Saturn (responsibility) on the Solar Eclipse, grounding the energy with deliberate, measured actions. Take that as a hint for yourself in how to move forward :))
Set your intentions for the Solar Eclipse. Let this be a reset in your life for where you want to go or what you want to do that you’re clear about. And set your intention for clarity and direction if you don’t know.
Easy does it. Five planets Retrograde is a lot of energy going towards undoing and redoing old, outdated, shaky structures in your life. Anything that needs review will come up for attention and correction.
Actions taken after the Solar Eclipse are especially good if they speak to planning, reorganizing, researching and getting ready for something to
launch in Sept, after Mercury goes Direct (on the EXACT degree of the Eclipse!).
P.S. Something big is going to happen on Sept 5 or shortly thereafter… that’s how it works. The “Eclipse degree” is hot, so when another planet activates it, something can happen.
So, I guess slow and easy does it for now. Later! Ciao!
