Moon and Mercury Rx at 14 Leo square Jupiter at 14 Scorpio. Pay attention to the messages that come now: they set the tone of your experience during this eclipse.

The messages themselves may be dreams, literal writing on the wall, a conversation, a dialogue from a TV show, etc.

You are being asked to look at the subconscious emotions and beliefs that allow or deny your access to an innate sense of sovereignty. Look at where you may be holding intense emotions – be it regrets, grief, anger, resentments, envy, false pride, and so on.

This is exactly what you may want to set the intention to release as we get closer to the Solar Eclipse in Leo. It may happen at the click of one’s fingers, or it may take longer to manifest. Either way, your desire to release that which weighs you down, or acknowledge and transmute it, or whatever else that may be appropriate – is what counts.

Those who have suffered from sexual trauma or predation (especially in childhood) may feel especially triggered as there are other astrological bodies that specifically bring out this alignment for processing.

On the other hand…

If you are soaring with an innate sense of your own self-mastery and are confident that you can navigate your energetic boundaries with others, then kudos to you. Use that energy and go create something powerful for yourself and the world.

Bring out that happy inner child and go play, dance, sing, create – whatever that allows that Heart to truly express itself.

Chances are you’re likely to experience a little bit of both. Heavy lifting that eases trough some creative, passionate activity. You may also find that having a dialogue (internally or externally) with those who have hurt you can be quite beneficial if you are ready to transmute the grief with your fearless compassion.

Be mindful that ultimately love is the greatest alchemical agent. Remember to Honor your own needs and boundaries and protect your Heart. When you can give the gift of your Love, do so when you are not hooked into the expectation of reciprocation. Loving in this way is its own gift.

As we fearlessly engage with the wisdom and healing of the Heart, we also change patterns in ancestral, past-life and collective karmic dynamics. There is so much transmutation possible at this time. So much of the old patterns that are rising to the surface to be cleared.

Remember that your actions and intentions during this (and any other eclipse) weave into your energetic narrative and return in 18-year cycles. By then you may find the energy completely transmuted, or returning in some way if unprocessed.

I recommend the prajnaparamita heart sutra, rhodochrosite and green obsidian for the energy of this eclipse.

I like the Dalai Lama´s chanting of the key line of this sutra :

There are of course other versions. Go with what resonates for you, but try to find one with accurate pronounciation and intonation.

The Eclipse itself occurs at 18´41 Leo at 9:56 am, August 11th 2018 (UTC) time. One of the key highlights of this is eclipse is that Pallas Athena – Mercury – Sun conjunction squares Jupiter in Scorpio and Juno in Taurus. The Mercury-Pallas Athena-Sun conjunction is at the apex of a Yod (Finger of Fate) with Neptune Rx at 15 Pisces and Pluto Rx at 19 Capricorn.

This is just a brief selection of what´s happening in the skies, there´s plenty more alignments and astrological bodies involved!

Boiling it all down, this is an important window for transformation. Not just for yourself, but for the planet as a whole.

Love courageously and compassionately.
Be fearless in your search for truth
Be willing to shift the way you see things
And align, always, with the Limitless Wisdom, Compassion and Love of Spirit.

  1. Reblogged this on Dr. Bairavee Balasubramaniam PhD and commented:

    Please note that a previous version of this article stated Sun conjunct Mars and Mercury for the eclipse, when that is not the case. It was supposed to state ´Pallas Athena´, and I have no idea how Pallas became Mars … My apologies for any confusion, it has of course been rectified.

    I simply take this as the reminder that Mercury Retrograde is at play and continues to teach us lessons in humility, trickster style !

    Blessings – and enjoy the Eclipse
