Libra new moon Oct 19 2017

New moon 26 degrees Libra exact Oct 19 2017 at 12:11 pm PDT

New moon opposite Uranus can stimulate nervous system issues - anxiety, restlessness, impulsiveness, impatience, irritability, mental and emotional stress. If this fits you, then slowing down, breathing and sitting in nature can help. Don't let your mind worry about what's outside your control.

Libra has a lot to do with relationship. There’s a level of instability in relationship with this new moon. Not just from people in your life but your unique personal relationship to anything in your life - people, places and things. Can you see what is changing in your relationship to a certain something? There’s a new beginning for that.

 Inconsistency, rebelliousness and fickleness is more likely from you or others now. There’s focus and need on harmonizing relationships and circumstances but little annoying minor oppositions can crop up and prevent total ease, peace and balance. This can manifest with anything you're doing. The energy is just not totally cooperative as much as we would like to have right now, do to Uranus opposition.

In some cases there’s extreme circumstances leading to new beginnings. Such as starting anew after loss and destruction in natural disasters, fires, floods, etc, personal crisis, or maybe just a new phase of life you're starting. Remember, Libra Aries is 2 of the 4 Cardinal points - the four seasons of nature symbolic of change. Libra New moon opp Uranus/Aries offers radical or unique changes and new beginnings in at least one area of your life.

Some erratic behavior from you or others, or even nature is more probable under Uranus opposition. As we’ve seen, it’s already been playing out, but will continue.

Another probability is being too inconstant and selfish, or having defensive/argumentative temperament that can cause alienation. Alienation is a real concern with Uranus opposition, for a variety of reasons. Trying to make decisions based on other people can backfire right now too. There needs to be better balance between your feelings and logic. Both are valid but both need compromise and integration. More cooperation is needed when dealing with others but some will oppose just for sake of being different, making diplomacy and cooperation difficult.

Competitiveness in social and work situations will also be on the increase. Social and political situations are aggressive and full of opposition as well. But the main theme is wanting to get past oppositions and find more harmony and balance. Venus, sun and moon in Libra desires and needs harmony, peace and beauty in circumstances to feel good. If that doesn't come, this can be a lesson not to totally rely on what's outside of self for emotional security and peace of mind.

 When it comes to any negotiations with others, make sure your own needs are in the mix but not too selfish either. It’s just a very difficult balance to achieve at this time. Don’t give too much and don’t take too much. With Uranus opp, you or others could place big demands that go too far. Wanting own freedom but not wanting others to have theirs is one example.

 Perversity just for the sake of it could also be issue. Promiscuous behavior is more likely under Uranus opposition, not just physically but emotionally too when the moon is connected. Expectations should be put in check when it comes to dealing with other people. I’m not saying they won’t come thru, I’m just saying it’s best to keep expectations low when it comes to others right now because of the unreliable influence of Uranus.

This new moon is a great time to start anything unusual, different and unique with other people, including art, photography, music, social events, etc.

Balancing the power dynamic between you and others will also be issue in the coming weeks. Whatever relationship you build from this point should have a healthy level of freedom and independence within your relations and committed partnerships. Co-dependency will surly create oppositions with this new moon. As well be conscious of power struggles, controlling behavior, manipulation, secrecy, suspicion, paranoia, jealousy and anger as we already have planets in Scorpio + moon and sun soon, and Venus square Pluto building followed by Mars square Pluto later.  There’s a Scorpio vibe under the surface for sure. Watch out for the stinger while your life and circumstances go thru some transformations. Scorpio energy only gets stronger from this point forward.

Money is also something that could be on the mind right now. With Jupiter in Scorpio, there could be some payouts from other people’s money in someway, for some folks during Jupiter’s stay in Scorpio thru 2018. Money begins to become bigger desire in the days ahead.

Any recent delays or slow downs in your life do to Mars square Saturn should start to ease. Things start moving along quicker plus work loads and stress levels should improve. But on world, social and political stages, things keep getting crazier with more shocking events to come, including another possible North Korea bomb test, or other provocative action generating big response.  Late Oct thru December  will be the biggest events related to the August  Solar eclipse that is still playing out.

We were born for these times tho. Surfs up.
Happy new moon.

Aries Full Moon Oct 5 2017 - The war and peace self vs others axis



Full moon 12 degrees 42 minutes Aries exact Oct 5 2017 at 11:40 am PDT.

Hot headed full moon in Aries is sensitive and defensive, agitated and aggressive. This could lead to an impulsive reactionary release of feelings and actions that create oppositions, culminations, climaxes, and manifestations of the recent building of energy. People might find it difficult to withhold their true feelings. With that however, comes new awareness, consciousness expansion and change. Balancing what you need for self vs what others need could be a real struggle with this full moon. Your own personal freedom and needs become a powerful influence. But honestly, life isn't just about your feelings and needs. Other people matter too.  How to balance both sides of the polarity becomes the challenge. As well, balancing the Yin and Yang, within and without, while balancing freedom and dependency.

The planet of sex, war and action is biggest influence

 Virgo Mars rules this full moon. The mood, along with action or reaction will be instinctive but practical and precise. Mars/Venus trine to Cap Pluto adds power and determination to achieve your desires and objectives. Logic is opposed by feelings tho. Both sides need recognition and balance in your conscious decision making. Something is changing and releasing in your life. That could be a harvest of some sorts that changes your daily routine circumstances. This can be a good thing, if there's something to harvest on any level. Either way - action of some kind is needed in your life right now. This can even be a harvesting of something of value in relationship that takes it to the next level, or, even an agreement of release. However, the energy is ripe for conflict, so work is required to maintain harmony and balance during these times of change. That objective won't be successful for everyone. Some people are only brave enough to initiate needed change through conflict, rather than open honest dialog of personal needs and desires.

Solar focus is on communicating personal needs thru diplomacy but faces opposition 

 Mercury conjunct sun in Libra is ruled by Virgo Venus conjunct Mars. There's a desire for unity and cooperation, with a focus on diplomacy thru communication. Venus uniting with Mars, softens the aggressive edge a bit. Or, what normally is soft gains an edge. Venus and Mars being the rulers of this opposition could indicate conflict in personal relationship that overflows, and escalated conflict on the world stage unless both parties are able to peacefully communicate needs, desires and perspectives.

Sexual tension on the rise'

Building sexual energy between the sexes can also create unconscious conflict. It can be cooperation or argument, both on social and personal fronts. If you're not able to express physical feelings for someone you're attracted to, or even resentful feelings to someone that's been building up, this full moon will create a lot of tension to let that go. Pluto's influence creates desire for something more intense and passionate, getting past superficiality.. General preferences now are more sensual, deeper and passionate, with darker edge, and themes of power and control. That's a general turn on under this influence. But all the negative traits of Scorpio/Pluto can come out too, such as suspicion, manipulation, overpowering, being controlling and difficult, etc. If all is well in your romantic relationship sex could get really intense and powerful in this phase.

Body Work

 I might add, that if you want the most intense and powerful full body massage of your life - get it done under Venus conjunct Mars in Virgo trine Cap Pluto!

Pluto shows destructive undercurrents intensity or forced changes in relationships

Pluto sits at the apex of a T square aspect to this full moon opposition that plays out thru next couple weeks, and beyond - power, intensity and change is in the mix for sure. Capricorn is the world. Pluto there for many years has created powerful and intense world circumstances, with all the old dirty buried shit slowly coming to the surface. The world isn't becoming anything new; it's exposing what's always been there, under the surface - the dark shadow traits of the world, gaining evermore awareness since 2008. This also shows a slow building of Govt control (seen by police state, new laws and new federal agencies over the years) as well as the people of the world feeling undercurrents of intensity and revolution. When Pluto gets activated thru transits, intensity and change happens during this 17 year phase of  Pluto in Capricorn. The world still has many powerful events to unfold the next 7 years.

Neptune confusion and distractions 

Sun/Mercury inconjunct Neptune is also big factor to this full moon energy. There has been Neptune opposition for a while - distractions, escapism, lies and illusions; unrealistic expectations, fantasies, etc, etc. This full moon brings more awareness to your illusions which you'll have to make adjustments to, after some things you thought were of value disappear into thin air. Some folks will go back and forth between seeing something for what it is and getting distracted by bullshit and deception. There's desire for depth and truth but annoying bullshit factor is still floating around out there that people will have to adjust to.

Venus leads Mars into conflict with Saturn

Venus now takes the lead in front of Mars, and both Venus Mars face difficult building square with Saturn in the coming week. Saturn (authority figures) is not supportive of this Venus Mars activity. Saturn screams (if it could) DISCERNMENT! There's a block to what is desired. There is a block to the relationship circumstances playing out in the coming week. Diplomacy might not be possible with Saturn at right angle to Venus/Mars. Increase war and conflict seems likely.

Social anger overflows

Social energy is in conflict with govt and authority. Social conflict is most likely to overflow beginning on this full moon cycle. The shooting in Vegas is associated with this energy but in bigger view it's the Leo eclipse of August. Other dates that will be energized by eclipse energy are: Oct 15, 29, Nov 11, 25, Dec 8, 23 and Jan 4. An event won't happen on each of those days, but any event that does happen on or around those days are related to the Aug eclipse which has a 6th month window. This is not to say world events won't happen on other days, it's just they will have other causes besides the eclipse. I think the last half or week of Oct could see another round of huge NK headlines.

Responsibility, hard work and follow through is needed for successful harvest of what's valuable

Saturn square the rulers of this opposition does show that in order to harvest, it's gonna take patience, responsibility and hard work. With Aries moon, there's need to do it your own way tho which gives rebellious tone to authority, or escaping responsibility to do whatever you want could bring conflict.  This conflict includes difficult law enforcement energy as well. Good judgement overriding primal instinctive nature is needed when dealing with anything serious in this phase, otherwise can have long term consequences that were unforeseen.

Jupiter opp Uranus Libra/Aries

Jupiter Uranus opposition is also important influence that remains energized and gets finalized under this full moon phase before Jupiter enters Scorpio on Oct 10 for a year. We've been dealing with extreme oppositions on the war and diplomacy front. You can even see this in the world thru the diplomats being expelled from some countries. So of course as the moon and sun move through this alignment the next couple days and weeks, it's going to energize more struggles and the need to balance these extremes. This is in personal relationships too. This time something might break open leading to real change and that balancing of opposites.

Legal issues

As Jupiter enters Scorpio for a year, people that have Saturn in the first few degrees of fixed signs could face legal issues starting late Oct and later degrees face it in 2018.

Also on the world stage, laws come into question. This is Jupiter Saturn energy for sure. New laws, crackdowns and power struggles could be forced on the people (Square from Saturn) adding conflict. The sun begins to square Pluto amping up intensity and forced change. This is not the time to try and get authority figures in your life to cooperate. But also it's not the time to tally retreat and be passive either. It's a fine line coming up. There could be uprising in some way.

Tues (10/3) Moon in Pisces

As i write this (Tues afternoon) the moon is in Pisces beginning to oppose Venus and Mars. This brings the 1st wave of full moon type energy as the moon is bringing awareness to the Venus/Mars relationship situation. Opposition begins. Feelings/circumstances are opposing desires and pleasure needs the rest of today unless you can find the balance point.

Moon in Aries Wednesday afternoon

Moon then enters Aries Weds at 1:39 pm PDT. Aries full moon vibes are on after that point but the opposition from Pisces Tues starts the awareness, culmination and harvest process of something of value. But getting everything you want Tuesday  might not be easy.  Moon reaches full bylLate Thurs morning.

Not being a hothead and so open with your feelings of opposition and criticism can go long way in keeping things diplomatic. Be true to yourself, but keep other's feelings in consideration too. That's my Libra advice. I have a lot of Aries too tho, so understand that front as well :)

Good luck with it. Enjoy.

Virgo New Moon Sept 19 2017 - Getting cleaned up & organized - distinguishing fact from fiction






New moon exact 27 degrees 27 mins of Virgo Sept 19 2017 10:29 pm PDT


This is a very important new moon. All the personal energies are uniting in Virgo, creating the 1st new beginning cycle after the historical great american eclipse. There has been a lot of theatrics, drama and changes as of late. It's now time to clean up the mess in your Virgo area of life. New energy, new methods and processes. New desire for better routine and practical activity. Getting past confusion, doubts and uncertainty, however, won't be so easy. Being logical, practical, organized and disciplined is hard when Neptune is opposite all this Virgo. Plus Saturn is at difficult right angle to both Neptune and nm, while Uranus is inconjunct new moon. This Virgo nm will create desire to distinguish fact from fiction in all areas of your life and in the world around you.

Neptune opposition shows this will be an imaginative and creative cycle. However, there's insecurity, fears, doubts, even paranoia, victimhood, or withdrawing from others because you might suspect ppl's kind motives for secret plots to take advantage of you. Shit like that can crop up with Neptune opposition. Distinguishing fact from fiction will be important, but challenging because Mercury is exactly opposite Neptune at time of new moon.

There's sensitivity, it's easier to be naive to the point where you're being unrealistic with your plans. It can go other way too; doubting yourself and your abilities.The moon moves into Libra a few hrs later followed by the sun couple days later bringing the fall equinox. There needs to be greater balance between the extremes of half truths, fact vs fiction, retreat vs responsibility, etc, etc. There is a lot of good ol fashion bullshit coming at us from all directions. This new beginning is a final sorting out, of everything. This is also true with imagination and creativity vs what's logical and practical. Make sure you're not self sabotaging, or undermining other people, getting distracted, or among a number of other unhealthy expressions of this Neptune opposition.

This kind of energy is best used (imo) as starting a new routine for art, music, writing, dancing, photography, film, etc etc. Basically anything that you can make good use of Neptune in a practical healthy way so that energy won't undermine you in unhealthy ways.

People are extra sensitive and vulnerable now (Mercury opposite Neptune), being nit-picky and critical won't help motive anyone.

 At same time tho, some folks will take that too far, thinking everyone is trying to exploit someone or something. There might be a lot of suspicious, critical judgmental attitudes. With Neptune opposition, it's easier to take that personal, letting the thoughts, opinions and energy of others affect you greatly to the point where it debilitates you, and your plans or goals. We all have different paths and points of view. We don't have to fight for our personal truth. No one can take that away. You live it everyday. Fuck what other people say.

Health (especially for Aries Rising ppl) is also something that needs to get cleaned up, organized and disciplined in this cycle. The health of whatever your Virgo house represents. Problem is, that illusive Neptune opposition adds complications to that process. It could be hard to find the health issue, if you have one, despite feeling sick or depleted. Or maybe you don't actually have a health issue and you're just trippin from that Neptune opposition or transit (cough: Libra rising). It's best to find what's dragging your health down. Be honest about what that is.

Not feeling motivated, feeling low energy, escaping routine and responsibility; depression, disappointments, addictions, doubts, sensitivities, insecurities, unrealistic fantasies, and illusions are all possibilities of the negative holding you back in this moon cycle. We want to get grounded, practical and wise, seeing thru illusions.

It's also new beginning for separating what you want from what you don't want. Diet, routine, anything that needs to be organized and accomplished is best started after this new moon.

When it comes to relationships, both Venus and Mars (the lovers) are in Virgo opposite Neptune as well. Venus will make conjunction with Mars (aka doin it) in few weeks which will be a new beginning for the lovers cycle. Until then the cleaning up of your love life energy is about letting go of what's no longer serving you from this last year's cycle. This won's be easy because of hidden Neptune alignment. There's been a lot of secret hidden relationship activity this last year. Confusion, deception and lies. Not being totally honest with self and others. Secretive motives, agendas, wearing rose colored glasses, only seeing what you wanted to see. Disillusionment and disappointments are common when there is unrealistic expectations. All this type of stuff is the negative side of Neptune opposition. 

The closer Venus gets to Mars next several days opp Neptune adds sexual energy, desire, fantasy but not everything is as it appears to be. So no fooling around, or i should say, no fooling yourself. Deceptive actions or unhealthy escapism is possible in the coming days. Using this for making love, art, music, imagination, creativity, etc, etc is best. You'll need Neptune energy in whatever you start or it can be used against you in ways you didn't want. 

We about to enter the divine season of Libra. This puts a big emphasis on relationships, and your Libra area of life. We'll have a Libra new moon next cycle. Until then, it's about starting to focus on those relationships and how you can better organize and clean up any problems.

The annoying inconjunct aspect to Uranus just keeps a level of instability to this cycle. Despite earth energy,  plans and lists, things will come up unexpected that require adjustments. Some days all the grounded practical earth energy will get thrown out and radical, freedom loving rebellion gets in. It will be seesaw effect between sticking to the plan vs impulsiveness and adjusting to the unexpected. Neptune and Uranus influence could be more radical water or weather related events. Illusive illnesses possible too - gas leaks, disease out-beaks, and so on.

Jupiter in late Libra is building opposition with Uranus next several weeks which amps up the war, social, political and legal fronts in the world. Some radical oppositions in personal relationships if it aligns with you. 

Pluto slows to station direct which also brings more intensity and explosive life changing events. Deep inner changes of the last several months have had big affect and now move you direct in new powerful but empowering ways.(very slowly).

Saturn in Sagittarius is still at a difficult angle. Nothing changes there. All the heavy stuff you've been dealing with will be here for the rest of 2017. When Saturn leaves Sag, you'll feel it and love to see it go. Until then watch for downer energy if you have Mutable placements. Everything you feel right now can be explained by your personal transits and progressions. Nothing stays the same forever. Phases come and go. Saturn phase isn't known for uplift. If you're under Saturn phase - Keep the faith, things will change even more in 2018 and you'll be past this last two years.

I hope the new moon info was helpful. There is a good amount of grounded logical energy but Neptune connected to Mercury doesn't make it pure Virgo. Enjoy.

Let me know if you need a personal report about your life's current energies, phases and cycles, along with what you can expect next. It's detailed and personalized. 

Either way.

Happy new moon.

Pisces full moon September 6 2017 Imagination Illusion and Dreams



Full moon 13 degrees 53 minutes of Pisces exact September 6 2017 at 12:02 am PDT. (Full moon at max Tuesday night more than Wednesday night).

The full moon aligns with Neptune, quincunx Venus and square Saturn.

This is peak tension and opposition in the lunar cycle which often plays out in your relationships. The tension offers more awareness, which ultimately leads to changes on some level.

Your Pisces area of life is getting illuminated. Guess what we find when the lights turn on? Neptune! Neptune's energy has been influencing you for a long time. This full moon will help you see that. This could be about letting go in someway; a dream, illusion or something unhealthy, or changes becuase your life has manifested one of your old dreams. Now you'll have to face the reality and responsibility of that. 

Pisces/Virgo axis has a lot to do with routines, health, habits, behind the scenes activity, service, faith, etc. Neptune has both positive and negative traits. Escapism from certain aspects of your life is always a real possibility with Neptune transit. Escapism and addiction can take on many forms. 

Any unhealthy habit could get your attention which helps lead to a change in routine for better health. At least the awareness will be there.

Any issue in your life that you havent had clear understanding about gets more awareness. Have you been wearing rose colored glasses about something or someone? Have you had expectations about something or someone? This full moon could be a reality check to certain illusions, fantasies and dreams in your life.

 Disappointments, disillusionment, martyrdom, fantasy, illness, low physical energy, food/water/chemical contaminations/poisonings (clean out your fridge), scandal, reality checks, additional water/rain/flood events, etc, etc, etc are all possible when full moon is with Neptune.

What is no longer useful for you, and needs to be released from your life? 

Pisces/Neptune is also about spirituality, religion, faith, art, music, film, fantasy, illusion and humanitarian activity. Some of these areas could face challenge with this full moon. Try not to be critical or hard on self and others. Full moon square Saturn can be tough bursting bubbles...

Generally everyone's Pisces area of life lacks firm boundaries, especially with Neptune there opening self up to outside influences of the collective. Faith, beliefs and opinions are extremely challenged right now. 

Full moon square Saturn could be a need to shore up those boundaries, see things in a more logical grounded perspective, take care of business you have been avoiding or overlooking, etc.

 Take care of anything pressing rather than escaping.

 Face your responsibilities and commitments. 

See the illusions in your life for what they are.  

Let go of something no longer healthy for you. Whatever that is will become clear under this full moon with  max illumination.

Full moon quincunx Venus - adjustments to your love life, what you enjoy and find pleasurable, etc. Money and relationship issues come to light. Not just romantic, it could be on any level. Adjustments to social life is possible as well. 

Mercury stationing direct on Leo eclipse degree - there has been some kind of process playing out, a wait and see phase last few weeks, or a perception change about something. As Mercury changes direction and slowly moves forward thoughts and ideas,  communication and information comes in or becomes more clear and we start to move forward on something on some level. 

Thoughts, news and info is very loud, radical, expressive and dramatic this week and will calm down some when Mercury reenters Virgo Sept 9.

Mars has just entered Virgo until Oct 22. Mars transits Virgo every two years. This changes the war and fighting energy to less dramatic and more precise. Action, war, sex, anger, etc is done in more of a practical detailed way. Action follows a plan, list, etc. This is more of a reserved Mars placement. Hopefully it will help to balance out intense and dramatic Leo eclipse energy next 6 months. Military action will also be precise and practical.

That's the practical and realistic side of this full moon. For mystics, shapeshifters, spiritualists, ppl of faith, musicians, magicians, etc this moon is lit, adds fuel to these gifts and powers for manifestion. 

The psychic energy is more sensitive at this time, the veil between worlds are thin now. It's wise to take psychic and energetic precautions. Becareful what you open yourself and others up to.

Use the magic of the invisible world to your advantage. 

The seeds planted on the Leo eclipse could begin to flower but will those intentions manifest as reality or illusion. Don't believe everything you see and hear in the world right now...

Use discernment 

Good luck. Happy full moon.

The Great American eclipse of 2017 - A shadow from coast to coast

This is a total solar eclipse exact on Aug 21 2017 at 11:30 am PDT - 28 degrees 52 mins of Leo.

This is a rare powerful event that literally tends to shake up life under the path of totality (that red line across the USA). However, everyone will feel it on some level. Others more so depending on your personal chart and how it aligns to 28-29 degrees of Leo. If you have any planets or energy points at 26-29 deg fixed signs (Aquarius,Taurus, Leo, Scorpio) or 0-4 deg of mutable signs (Gemini, Pisces, Virgo, Sag) then this eclipse will be eventful for you, and it's probably already playing out in your life. Even if you don't have those degrees, wherever you have 28-29 deg Leo in your chart (life) is getting eclipsed. Karmic restart.

Eclipsed means hidden. The end of your Leo area of life is getting blocked, obscured, concealed, etc, etc leading to change with fated new beginnings. Remember, houses show the 12 areas of your life that everything fits into. So your Leo side is having a shadow appear. The lights go out, symbolically and something is removed. This is usually unexpected. It's hard to predict manifestations as it's wildcard energy connected to events long in the past. The major events don't always manifest right at eclipse time. There is a 6th month window, and because solar eclipses are also new moons, then the seeds are being planted for major shake ups in your Leo area of life within the next 6 months. Sometimes however, major events play out the weeks around the eclipse. There will be a serious of dramatic events connected to this eclipse as planets transits this eclipse point thru the next 6 months.

Eclipses are fated times, everything you do now has an extra significant ripple effect. Long lasting changes are being seeded. A lot happening now outside your self is outside your control. Events outside self could also be a reflection of your inner world but these fated widows go beyond the individual. These are important karmic times of change for the collective, nations and the world, that you're connected to, currently in this Leo area of life.

Eclipses put people back on track. Sometimes events can seem really negative, and yet looking back in hindsight those events led to positive things that couldn't have happened otherwise. A lot of times the changes are positive though. Major stuff happens in your life, depending on how strong the eclipse aligns to you. It's always going to be about some kind of change being seeded.

There was an eclipse in this area of Leo back in 1998. Can you remember any eventful situations that year? The connection goes back even further than that though.

The North Node is with this eclipse. Being in Leo events are dramatic and bold. Uranus aligned adds a radical element. There's instability with eclipse and Uranus. Saturn is in supportive alignment though so the authorities and power is aligned with the radical influence that can bring sudden change to your Leo area of life. Mars is here too, adding aggression, passion and drive. Again, it's expressive, dramatic, bold and aggressive energy. We could even say flamboyant with Uranus. North Node shows opportunities are here, even if you don't want them. You're getting shoved into a certain direction, maybe a redirection outside your control. No matter what that looks like, have faith this is a path you need to start down. Trust it. Let go for the struggle and just change with the times.

Mercury is retrograde, so some kind of process is unfolding in at least one area of your life. This eclipse energy will be in place for weeks. Mercury will Rx back to this eclipse point then go direct in Sept. That's when you'll really have a good idea what manifested from this and the full ramifications.

For the nation, this is a rare event for the path of totality to cross the United States. A shadow appears from coast to coast. The dark side of this country is showing and the light is being eclipsed out. It shakes people up. It shakes the nation up. It sets up karmic changes for the long term. Leo is love, joy and fun, which is getting eclipsed...shut out, blocked, etc. The dark-side of Leo is appearing - the dramatic and bold dark-side, connected to the ghosts of past.

The ancients didn't have a lot of good stuff to say about solar eclipses. They didn't party under the event. No one back then wanted to be connected to it, they thought it was bad luck. They hid from it, they didn't view it, especially under the path of totality. Even animals get confused. It messes up the systems on earth when the sun goes out in the day. Unstable people can lose it.

Leo is connected to royalty. A world leader is usually eclipsed from power with these kinds of events. Since Trump is 29 Leo rising right where the eclipse is, it's easy to see Trump is being eclipsed. These are the seeds being planted for his removal within next 6 months. This could be in any way - assassinated, accident, fired, resigning, etc. This eclipse is about him and others. There could even be something about his wife that happens. Again, eclipses are hard to predict outcomes. Unexpected change is certain though, some kind of shake up for Trump, and the USA, already playing out.

Other world leaders could also face being eclipsed, depending on how the eclipse aligns to their chart.

The events playing out the rest of this year in world and on personal level is so fated connected to years into the future. Have faith in your life and the process you're in. Everything is happening for a reason.

Good luck, have no fear. Be bold and brave.
Happy eclipse.

Here's a related article about the ghosts of the past creeping up, related to Trump and the civil war.
