Full Moon In Virgo (With Horoscopes)

Published

on

This Full Moon occurs today on March 5th at 1:05pm (EST). It is in Virgo, the sign of self-care, details, health, organizing, discernment, perfection, service, work, and the details of life. Virgo is an Earth sign, and is very much orientated around reality in the physical world. It is opposite the Sun in Pisces (which has been there for the last 2 weeks),  a more mystical and spiritual sign. It is a dreamer and more tuned in to the unconscious. Pisces also is a creative and right brained energy which can also be elusive, while Virgo is more linear and matter of fact. At this Full Moon, these two energies are in a tug-of-war with each other. This period could be a time to turn your dreams into something real and tangible. It could also mean discerning or releasing anything that seems unrealistic or delusional.

For some people, it could also be a great time for healing, especially because of the other planets involvement in this Full Moon. With this energy, It’s important to employ physical healing techniques in balance with the spiritual ones. Often, spiritually orientated people tend to mainly gravitate towards spiritual or energy healing modalities (such as Reiki) but unless we use other methods that work on a physical level, then the spiritual healing will have limited results and will not be fully embodied. This Full Moon (and the next 2 weeks) is a good time to do any type of physical cleansing, detox, and  physical techniques to help with spiritual healing. Modalities and exercises that help to release old traumas and patterns can also be very helpful such as Yoga, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, or the revolutionary Trauma Release Exercises. It would be wise to be open to anything else that is presented to you at this time which helps in this way.

By the end of the month, after the Sun goes into Aries, many of us may find ourselves busier with new initiatives. You may want to take this time over the next few weeks to organize, clean, clear and prepare for a more action orientated time period. It is a good time to get a head start on your spring cleaning and try to have it all done before the next New Moon and Equinox on March 20th. It is also a good time to use Feng Shui to optimize productivity in your workspace and home. The Virgo-Pisces axis is excellent for this approach.

Other aspects over the next few weeks suggest that this could be a time of significant changes that allow us to really move forward in our lives, but we always need to release or transform the things that are getting in our way which could be some of the things described above. Pisces is the sign of escapism, and for anyone who has escapist tendencies, this Full Moon and is an opportunity to transform this into productivity in the real world. Challenge yourself into new productive habits and routines.

 

Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn…The Final Square Off

advertisement - learn more

As a collective, we have been experiencing tense energies since June 2012, thanks to the interplay between Uranus and Pluto. The geometric angle these two planets have manifested into global protests, uprisings, increased activism, political reforms, countries going bankrupt, new currencies getting the spotlight, and much more. An increasing amount of people are getting fed up by the conditions that have been set-up by hierarchy, Protestbanks, politicians, racist police, corporations, Monsanto, as well as Oil and dirty energy industries, etc. Uranus is known as the ‘awakener’, and in Aries it is rebellious. It also rules technology. Pluto is a transformer but also represents those in power who control and manipulate us. It is in the sign of Capricorn which rules monetary structures (such as banking, currency) but also rules governments, corporations, and other structures in place that have sort of managing effect in the world at large. During this time, people have been waking up and challenging these power structures, and technology has been a valuable asset to this cause. This month, we will experience the final tense square off between these two planets which will be exactly on March 16th, but can be felt in the weeks leading up this date and afterwards.

In our personal lives many people have been experiencing similar effects. We may be challenging outdated structures that go against our personal freedom and individuality. Depending on how these planets are affecting you individually, many people may have had flare ups with employers, parents, authorities, and those who hold traditional limiting views that try to inhibit your freedom, individuality and self-expression. One thing I’ve definitely noticed over the last 3 years is the vast amounts of people attempting to become self-employed by using the internet and technology. We are in a time now where technological advancements are allowing us to make a living by doing something that truly reflects our unique self expression. However, I’m saying all of this loosely because it really depends on how these planets are affecting you as an individual which can be determined by identifying Uranus and Pluto’s positions in relation to your natal astrology chart. As this Uranus-Pluto theme concludes this month, we will see some more events and circumstance occur (big or small, and on an individual and global level) with the themes described above. However, although the final peak of this energy will conclude over the next month, it will still be lingering more subtlety until the rest of the year. Also, Pluto will be in Capricorn until the year 2023, so we will continue to experience transformations in government, corporate, and banking structures until then. To put this into perspective, the last time Pluto was in Capricorn the United States became a country which became the dominant governing country and currency during the following 248 year orbit of Pluto. So, by the time we reach 2023, expect to see some new structures established which will be pivotal for the next 248 years. It is believed by conspiracy theorists that those in control would like to create a global government sometimes referred to as the ‘New World Order’. However, with the input and activism of the people and the collective, we can use this period to create our own structures that favour everyone.

Horoscopes for March 5th until March 19th

*Note: These are generalized Sun sign horoscopes and should be taken lightly. The most accurate way to do a horoscope is when an astrologer uses a person’s natal birth chart which requires the exact birth date, time, and location of birth. For more information on doing a detailed horoscope, click on my website link below in my bio.

Aries: This Full Moon emphasizes the need to focus on the details, work, health, and your day-to-day routines. With the changes you make, it can be beneficial and even transformative in your career. You may catch the attention in a positive way from your employers or those who have authority over you. Or you feel the need to make necessary changes in your life to help you change your career path. You have a lot of energy and it would be beneficial to look for an outlet, such as implementing a new exercise routine or any type of sport. Also, you may feel really anxious especially from March 10-17 as their is a possibility that you may feel the need to suddenly rebel against those in power over you. Also be extra careful from March 10-12 as there is a higher risk of accident or injury. Don’t let your irritability get the best of you.

Taurus: This Full Moon highlights your love life, fun, creativity, and children. Some Taurus folk may even want to get involved in a team orientated sport. This is a good period for deepening your ‘big picture’ perspective and philosophical beliefs. This an excellent time to use your creativity in powerful ways and especially for those who are teachers, writers, or work in marketing fields. If you are in a relationship this can be an extra fun and exciting time. If you are not in a relationship, then there is a chance that a new potential lover might be in the picture. If this is the case, it would be wise not to get too attached. A new love interest can be expansive for you on a spiritual or philosophical level, but probably won’t be long lasting. Just have fun with it!

Gemini: This Full Moon highlights your home and family. It is a good time to organize around the house and even start your spring cleaning. Renovations, upgrades, or moving to a new home can also be a theme. Their could also be some positive developments around your shared resources with your family or with those you live with. This Full Moon can be a bit tougher for those born between June 2nd – 8th, as you can be tested or challenged, but its effects largely depend on the dynamics of your natal chart. From March 11th – 12th, you may have issues with coworkers or peers. For those of you who are activists, you may find yourself busy in this regard between March 11th – 17th. It would be a great time to spread whatever message that you’d like to share.

Cancer: This Full Moon is a time to communicate how you feel to those closest to you about things that need to be changed in your relationships with them. It could be with your lover, a partner, siblings, or even neighbours or those in your community. You may see that things are not as good as they can be and you are looking to sort that out. Others way look at you as being nitpicky and you may butt heads with them over their opinions. However, the end result can be significant positive change. From March 10th -12th you may want to try new or unconventional things in your career, or you their may be sudden changes that occur beyond your control. Either way it plays out, you will likely gain from it in a positive and expansive way. Between March 10th-17th there is also a possibility that you rebel against those who try to manipulate or exert power over you.

Leo: This Full Moon highlights your values, money, resources, and self-worth. This can be a good time to do your taxes or get everything ready and organized in preparation for your taxes. You may also want to implement new health regimens, let go of bad habits, and/or change your  routine to help boost your self-esteem. You may also want to change your job in order to improve your income which could also boost your self-worth. If that is the case, then the best time to send out resumes will be March 9th – 10th. If you are self-employed then you could use those same dates to market yourself and your business to help you in boosting your income. However, you may not get the stability you are looking for until March 17th and in the weeks following. Also, from March 11th-17th, your spiritual, philosophical, and big picture perspective may undergo some radical changes that could influence the line of work you want or the need to change your lifestyle.

Virgo: This Full Moon is in your sign, so you will especially feel it. Your emotional sensitivity will be heightened at this time and you may feel the need to contemplate how everything is going in your life. It can be a time of profound insights around changes that need to be made in your relationships, and especially your love life. If you have been self-sacrificing in your relationships this can be a time where it can be addressed, especially with anything related to shared resources. This Full Moon is a time to consider what is important for you and your self-identity. Their could be positive developments and/or sudden changes around money or investments from March 9th – 11th. There will be tension and intense energies in the from March 11th – 17th and for you it could manifest in your love life. If you are not in a relationship then it could be a time where you need to face your fears of being in one. From March 12th and for the following 2.5 weeks, it could be a time where you could be of great service to others.

Libra: This Full Moon is a stimulative time for your creativity and imagination. You could also gain inspiration through your dreams. However, for many Libras this will be a social time and your creativity and inspiration can be stimulated through your friends and network, or tied into your social life some other way. Your network can expand very much, especially from March 9th-10th.  It is also a good time to make positive changes in your home, and the Libra approach to that is making it more aesthetically pleasing. You may even want to do this by making your space more conductive of positive spiritual energies by using feng shui, crystals, or anything else that comes to mind. If you are in a relationship, there could be sudden changes and/or tension from March 11th – 17th, but in some cases it can also be an exciting time. Either way it could be transformative period, even if no relationship is involved. If a new love interest comes into your life suddenly it can have a powerful effect on you. If thats the case, it likely won’t be long lasting and could be ultimately problematic.

Scorpio: This Full Moon highlights your work, social life, groups involved with, co-workers, peers, and social causes. It is a good time to think about how you could contribute your creative energy to your work as well as the collective and for some Scorpios, how it could  be of service to humanity. Conversations with others can prove to stimulating and transforming. Your words can even have a powerful effect on others with your depth. This is a period where you can achieve a lot in your work. As a result, the period between March 9th -10th can be a time where the fruits of your labour are realized and can move you upward in your line of work, reputation, and status. Their can even be an unexpected or surprising reward for you. The period between March 11th – 17th can be a bit intense and chaotic. Any type of communications, writing, work can have someone respond to you in an erratic way or may try to exert power over you. Maybe some changes need to be made or maybe you’re just being tested or challenged. Just hang in there, it will pass after the next New Moon on March 21st.

Sagittarius: This Full Moon highlights your career, duties, and reputation. As this Full Moon is about details, diligence, and work, it may push some Sagittarians out of their comfort zone. This period can be most challenging to those born between Dec 3rd – 11th. Finding that balance between your work and personal life could be a theme. Or you may need to make changes to improve both of them. Their could be changes in your work that  could be beneficial to your income and/or values. From March 9th-10th, it could be a fun and beneficial time in your love life. If you are in a relationship, you may want to do something with your lover that expands your perspective, maybe watch a documentary or go to a lecture, or perhaps something else. From March 11th-17th, you may find yourself in a situation where there could be a sudden event or circumstance, perhaps a fight with your lover, where your values or the way you spend your money needs to be changed. For example, Sagittarius can have a tendency to overdo things especially when it comes to having fun, spending money, drinking, and partying, so it could be related to that. With Saturn in your sign over the next few years, this a period where you need to get more serious and live your life with more discipline. As well, the Virgo Full Moon is asking you to be more conscious of your health, lifestyle and the important details of your life and work.

Capricorn: This Full Moon highlights your goals, spiritual beliefs, ‘big picture’ perspectives, and some Capricorns may even be travelling.  All of these potential themes are a reflection of, or somehow serve, your transforming self-identity and personal values. You may feel the need to communicate your truth to others. When a Capricorn speaks about their beliefs or perspectives, it comes from a very grounded perspective so therefore you could more be more easily received by those who are normally sceptical. Capricorns are more serious and ‘matter of fact’, making you an effective teacher, eye opener, or ‘agent of change’ to others. This is a period where you could be doing a lot of important work at home. From March 9th -10th you could do something in your home that can be some sort of upgrade which could increase its value to you, someone you share it with, or to some potential buyers in the future. The period from March 11th – 17th, you may find yourself in a sudden conflict at home and/or with members of your family such as your parents. Perhaps you will rebelling, or being rebelled against, but ultimately you need to speak your truth. This is a microcosm of the energy affecting the world at large.

Aquarius: This Full Moon highlights your financial obligations which could be in many different ways. It’s a good time to organize all your receipts and paperwork for your taxes. The Virgo Full Moon energy is so helpful because it is detail orientated, so use it to your advantage. There could be some changes come up around shared resources, investments, credit, banking, or even inheritance. These changes could even be orientated around a relationship or regarding shared resources within a relationship. From March 9th – 10th, you could learn something new about asserting yourself in relationships in a way that helps you and the other person grow. From March 11th – 17th, this is a tense time. Be careful while driving or walking in your neighbourhood, as there is a higher risk of accident. You could also have an intense and sudden argument with someone, and it could even be a sibling or someone else close to you. Ultimately, anything can happen in this period, so expect the unexpected.

Pisces: This Full Moon is in your opposite sign, and it may challenge you to pay more attention to the details and the realities of life. Although when looking at overall aspects that day, it’s not that bad for you and you can still go back to your ‘Pisces zone’ of imagination. This Full Moon strongly highlights your relationships and how you relate with others. Any problems around relationships might be instigated by your lack of details and realism. A theme that could play out between you and a relationship is how the two of you are contributing to a good cause. Between March 9th – 10th is a good time to do something that builds up your value in your workplace and in your career in general. From March 11th – 20th, the tense energies could play out in conflicts between you and your co-workers, peers, or amongst a group that you are part of. Their could be conflict between your values and the values of the group. Their could also be some sudden change with your personal finances and resources.

Facebook Recognizes The Risks Of Too Much Screen Time With New ‘Time Limit Tool’

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In this day and age, most people are spending way too much time staring at a screen and not enough on things that actually matter.

  • Reflect On:

    Can we use this tool to our advantage to reassess our values and what is really important to us? Perhaps this tool will help many to finally break the addiction to "the scroll" for good.

Finally, it would seem that Facebook has begun to acknowledge the fact that its users are spending too much time on the app and that could potentially have some negative side effects. To combat this, the developers at Facebook are creating a ‘Time Limit Tool’ so that its users can set a time limit to ensure they aren’t wasting too much time on the app. This app can be used for Facebook or Instagram.

This new tool will allow users to be able to track and monitor how much time they’ve spent scrolling and have a reminder set off when they have reached the time that the user has allotted, and even mute notifications for a period of time.

In a recent blog post, Facebook announced, “We want the time people spend on Facebook and Instagram to be intentional, positive and inspiring. Our hope is that these tools give people more control over the time they spend on our platforms and also foster conversations between parents and teens about the online habits that are right for them.”

Facebook users are continuing to decline as people are simply losing interest and are also recognizing how much time is actually being wasted staring at a screen. Having this app is a huge step in the right direction. In fact, just showing people how much time they are actually spending screen-staring on a daily basis is of value.

It’s funny because I was just saying to a friend that someone needs to develop an app that actually shows us the amount of time that we spend on the various social media platforms. Maybe Facebook was listening and decided they better jump on this so that they can spin it how they would like, rather than having an outside party app come in called “Time Suck” or Wasted Dayz App” or something to that effect. For many, the amount of time spent would be likely a shock. But getting a clear picture of it and facing this can be an excellent way to inspire us to make different choices with social media.

Some say Facebook’s new app doesn’t quite go far enough.

“I wouldn’t say it’s a radical change or that it’s going to really change a lot about the way that most people use Facebook or Instagram,” Grant Blank from the Oxford Internet Institute told Newsbeat. “It strikes me as a way to balance their corporate interest of keeping people spending as much time as possible on Facebook while still being responsive to people who find the continual notifications to be disturbing or distracting.”

How Do You Use The Tool?

 

To access the tool on either Facebook or Instgram simply head to the settings page and select ‘Your Time On Facebook’ Or ‘Your Activity’ on Instagram. At the top is a dashboard showing average time in-app on the device you are using. Below is an option to set a daily reminder that will alert you when you’ve been spending too much time on Facebook or Instagram.

Let’s Use This Tool To Our Advantage

We might as well take this new offering from Facebook and use it to our advantage. First, how about a simple weeklong experiment where we don’t change a thing. We use the social media platform as we normally would, and at the end of the week, we check our stats. But before we check, let’s take a guess and see if we are anywhere close to that guess or way outside of it. Regardless of what you may have guessed, it still might inspire you to make a change and cut down, or even drastically limit the amount of time you are spending.

What if you were spending 8 hours a week on the book, would that be enough time to inspire you to make a change? What would you do with that extra time?

Why Should You Limit Your Time?

If you’re thinking, I generally get enjoyment from Facebook and I love seeing pictures of my friends, family, nieces/nephews, grandkids etc., I wouldn’t want to miss out. I’m curious to know how much of that time is actually spent looking at these pictures, versus the endless scroll, in which one is searching for these things? If we limited our screen time, we make more time for real life interactions, more time in nature, more time to ourselves, time to nurture ourselves, time to try something new, time to clean out that closet, time to pick up a new hobby or read a new book and actually learn something.

When you do go on to the platform, you can streamline your experience, by going directly to the pages of your closest friends and family and see if they have posted anything new. You can do this with your favorite pages too, like Collective Evolution. This is a much better way to ensure you are actually seeing the latest content from these pages. Often on Facebook, you only see what they want you to see. There Are Many Ways You Can Get Your News Without Using Facebook.

Much Love

5 Ways The Money System Keeps You Trapped

Published

on

Money as survival, living off grid and a money free world are terms that are being bandied around more and more as people become aware of the systemic trap we’ve all been indoctrinated into.

When you look at the patterns of how the money-as-survival system plays out, you realize its efficacy lies in how thoroughly it hamstrings you from every angle.

Today we’re going to briefly unpack five of the ways that the money system manages to keep you trapped, even though you may be making moves towards trying to get out of it.

1. A short cycle of 1-month

Time is a very artificial construct, once you get into it.

The only real measure of time we have is a day, and we mark that because we see the sun rise and set. It’s the contrast of the light and darkness that so effectively delineates the measure of time in a day.

There’s no such obvious marker however for weeks and months. Some would argue that you could use the moon and seasonal cycles, but those would vary according to where you are in the world, and if that’s true, then June in the Northern Hemisphere would have to become December in the Southern Hemisphere.

advertisement - learn more

The purpose of that sidetrack is to lay the background for the idea that month-end is an artificially generated construct.

Nothing actually happens if you don’t pay by a specific date – well nothing of cosmic significance anyway. There are no cases of people getting struck by lightning for skipping bill payments… *smiles*

The biggest problem with this artificial cycle that concludes in month end, is that it is really a short cycle.

You quickly fall into the trap of living month-to-month, hand-to-mouth, with the idea that you’ll make it through the end of this month and then start the long-term stuff next month.

But next month never comes, does it?

You just get stuck in this loop of generating just enough money to make it to month-end, so that you can breathe for a day or two, and feel a bit rested before you launch into something bigger that could yield long-term results.

You get focused on completing shorter projects so that you can meet your immediate expenses, because if you don’t meet those then long term doesn’t really matter.

2. You don’t get enough time or rest

And you make it to next month, but when you get there, you’re still tired… and it always seems to be very close to when you have to make sure you can cover the next set of bills that is due.

You decide to rush through a few projects to make time for the long-term project that will yield results, or you spend time on the longer term project first…. either way, when it comes to balancing the other end of the scale, later on, you’re tired, and already starting to feel burnt out, as well as the looming pressure of month end.

And if you can just make it through month end, well then, next month maybe you’ll get time to sort this all out properly?

But you don’t get the time – and you don’t get the time to rest either. You’re running on empty, exhausted, and firing on maybe 40 to 80% of your cylinders… if you’re lucky.

So, even if you do find time to work on “the big thing”, you’re only doing it with half a brain.

The rest of your brain is wrapped in worrying about what you have to get done, how much money you have to generate, and what you can do to get there; so much so, in fact, that you are never truly present when you’re working – or when you’re resting.

It’s that constant inner voice chatter that becomes your worst enemy when you try to rest as well: yes, you take the time and rest your physical body, but your mind just keeps spinning and spinning and spinning, like a broken record.

And because you’re never firing on all cylinders, you never quite reach that great idea that could actually maybe pull you out of this mess.

Or you get the idea and you miss it, or just plain don’t have the energy to actually do anything about realizing it.

3. Constant low-grade stress

All of that inner voice chatter is a constant low-grade buzz – a stressor that eats away at the back of your mind, wearing you down and draining you over the long term.

You get even more tired and feel less inclined to find the time and energy to make that “big thing” happen.

You start feeling powerless to do anything in fact – but that’s okay: you’re usually too tired to notice.

This all-pervading tiredness further reinforces the pattern of “doing enough for month end so that I can rest before the next big surge.”

Over time, “enough to get by” is all you eventually seem to do.

4. Shame and failure

Hopelessness never comes alone: it travels with its friends, shame and failure.

The more and more we feel like we’re failing, the more we keep that information private, to ourselves.

When you do ego mitigation work, one of the powerful realizations you’ll come to is that anything only ever has power over you when you keep it private. You never fear something that is already known – this is why we hide things about ourselves.

Read more on ego mitigation here.

Out of shame, people stay private about their money issues: not just you, but also the people around you.

As a result, when we benchmark against others in our minds, we are really benchmarking against our imagination – and our imaginations love to paint a grass-is-greener scenario when we do that.

So on top of the hopelessness and powerlessness that we are already feeling, every time we think about how others are doing, we see ourselves as failures by comparison.

If you repeatedly tell yourself that you are a failure, thousands of times every month, you will eventually feel like a failure. When that happens, you will approach every situation expecting to fail.

When you’re convinced that something is doomed to fail from the start, well why should you even bother putting any effort into it?

5. Bad Habits

If you do anything repeatedly, it will become normal to you, and a habit. This is what we mean by something becoming “subconscious”.

Once you’re stuck in that cycle of “making it to month end,” and you’ve allowed it to become entrenched for a few months, you establish all these patterns as your default habits, your default reactions and behaviours.

From the moment you step onto that “getting by” carousel, it’s almost impossible to step off, and the entire system just repeatedly drags you further and further down, until you just give up hope of ever getting it right.

The question that really stands out for me with the money situation and the 99% is this: the 99% means that the system is guaranteed to fail 99% of those who participate.

Why do we still accept this as the only way to live? Why do we accept a way of life that guarantees that so many of us will become depressed and fail?

Solar Eclipse In Leo: Evolving Our Authentic Self-Expression

Published

on

We are having a partial Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11th, 2018 which will be the third and final eclipse of this Summer. This is a supercharged New Moon which influences a longer-term period. It will be visible from Russia, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Northeastern Quebec, Greenland, Iceland, and Northeastern Asia.

Prior to this, we have had a Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 12th/13th and a Total Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on July 27th/28th happening in the same eclipse season. Solar Eclipses influence the following 6 months while Lunar Eclipses influence the following 1-3 months. However, they are part of a process that began in May 2017 when the Lunar Nodes entered the Leo-Aquarius axis which will last until this November. (Read more about the previous eclipses here).

The Eclipses and the Nodes in these signs are part of an evolutionary process in how we work with these energies. What results from this period will have longer-term effects even beyond this 18 month period.

The North Node has been in Leo, and this pushes us towards new directions in how we express Leo energies, while the South Node is in Aquarius which is more about what we need to let go of in how we express the areas represented by that sign. However, we can experience both beginnings and endings with both.

Solar Eclipse Conjunct Mercury Retrograde In Leo

Similarly to last summer, we have both a Solar Eclipse and Mercury Retrograde occurring in the same sign of Leo. This really emphasizes the re-working and adjustments of how we apply its energy in our lives. It is about how we want to shine in the world, our creative energy, and how we self-express from the heart.

Leo is associated with affection, children, courage, leadership, generosity, and playfulness. It is also about our vitality, passion, and being in alignment with what really lights us up and gets us excited. It is about how we seek praise and attention. The best way to approach that is to be our authentic and heart centred version of ourselves; whether it be in our creations, how we perform, or how we express other Leo traits previously mentioned.

The negative expressions of Leo can be egotistical, authoritarian, dramatic, stubborn, jealous, and hot-tempered.  It can demand respect without earning it and be too loud and boisterous without considering or caring about how others respond to that. However, the more we are working with Leo energy positively, we will attract a more positive and supporting response from those on the receiving end.

This process is about really tuning in to how we shine and express ourselves at our best. It is also about considering how we want to be seen in the world, yet, without being overly occupied with ideas of how we can get the most attention and praise. It can be good to take actions towards how we want to stand out, but it’s important to balance that out with our true authentic higher expression of who we already are.

On August 8th and 9th, Mercury retrograde made its exact conjunction with the Sun which is an important part of the retrograde process known as the ‘inferior conjunction’. Certain things that occurred during this period can help you have a realization in how you need to apply yourself over the coming months.

Reflect on your thoughts, conversations, insights, circumstances, and any other messages or realizations you received from the Universe at that time. Perhaps there was something that triggered you or got your attention? Whatever it was, it is partly connected to whatever shifts that this eclipse is triggering in your life.

Solar Eclipse and Mercury Retrograde Square Jupiter

Both the Eclipse and Mercury retrograde are in a square with Jupiter which ended its retrograde in Scorpio a month prior. Some of the Leo themes mentioned above, and what occurred on August 8th/9th, could somehow be connected to Jupiter ruled areas. This may have to do with an adjustment or developments connected to your beliefs, ideals, faith, and understandings. Perhaps it can be about having realizations of our blind spots or deeper truths.

There can be some sort of expansive energy around our self-expression or in the way we think. Maybe this can be connected to plans or developments around education, travel, marketing, teaching, and publishing. In some cases, it could have something to do with financial matters or sexuality. Whatever it is, it may be connected to something that was initiated in March, July, or sometime in between them.

This energy can also scatter our minds and communications. Mercury is also in a quincunx with Neptune which triggers confusion, distractions, and miscommunications. Our thoughts and conversations might also be at odds with our ideals, dreams, fantasies, illusions, or an expression of escapism.

Jupiter is making its final trine with Neptune in Pisces which began late November/December and was also strong in mid-late May. This can be great for any growth and expansiveness around spirituality, creativity, as well as selfless and compassionate pursuits. This can also be good for anything that involves visual arts, video, and photography.

Some people could have mystical experiences and perhaps some learning can occur through our dreams or connections to spiritual realms. This can be a time of heightened sensitivity. Considering that Mercury is in the process of changing motion when this energy is strongest (from August 14th – 23rd), it’s likely that the potential manifestations of this period will play a role in any clarity that we receive in how we need to move to proceed as Mercury begins moving forward after August 19th.

Mars Retrograde Going In Capricorn

As discussed in previous articles, Mars has been retrograde since late June and will last until August 27th, just after the next Full Moon. Most of it has been occurring in Aquarius, however, less than 2 days after this eclipse it re-enters Capricorn. Over these coming weeks, there could also be adjustments and developments in how we apply ourselves within the Capricorn realm.

It could be connected to our careers, responsibilities, goals, and overall ambitions. Perhaps revisiting how we can assert ourselves in a more orderly, practical, productive, conservative, masterful, structured, and disciplined way. Aquarius is about our social connections, while Capricorn is about resourcefulness, therefore this retrograde can be about how we utilize our social network and teamwork in pursuing our shared goals.

Making Intentions And Things To Consider

What is your heart calling on you to create? How can you express yourself as authentically as possible? What are you passionate about and how can you share that with the world? What has come up for you in the days leading up to this eclipse? What adjustments do you need to make in order to help you fulfill your heart’s desires?

What can you do to bring more joy into your life? How can you be a better leader and/or lover? What are the practical considerations at this time to help you fulfill your passions? What adjustments need to be made with your social network to assist you in fulfilling your goals?

These are just some examples of what to consider during this time. However, keep in mind that the energies of this eclipse will also be a part of the backdrop over the coming months. If you wish to make any intentions, it is generally best to do so within the first 24 hours following the New Moon. However, with this one specifically, it is most ideal to wait 18 hours after the exact moment of it when it occurs. The exact time of this New Moon will be at 9:58am Universal Time on August 11th.
