Be prepared for a very intense July. The days have the potential to clean, purify and eradicate our old values, systems and beliefs. Now is a good time to let it go – once and for all. Don’t get yourself tied up in knots over what seems to be scary energy. Let’s break it down to manageable pieces.
With two of this summer’s electrifying eclipses arriving and expansive Jupiter ending a four-month retrograde, it’s all systems go. Or is it? We still have five planets in retrograde motion throughout the month which brings up unfinished business to finally finish. Messenger Mercury and dominant Mars have just begun their retrograde orbits along with organized Saturn, dreamy Neptune and transformative Pluto. It won’t be easy, but we have to try to maintain our equilibrium. My advice is to focus on what you can do and not on what you can’t. Plans and goals are not going to come to fruition or really get started until September when the planets return to direct orbit. Do your research and put in place whatever is necessary, so you are ready when the energy is released. I expect after keeping things at a simmer all summer, when we finally do get a chance to get going, things will happen quickly.
The Full Moon tomorrow is a rare celestial event; the last time it occurred was 150 years ago. It’s a Blue Moon, a Super Moon and a total Lunar Eclipse all wrapped up in proud Leo finery. As with anything to do with Leo, we are dealing with an emphasis on self, central ideas and leadership. Eclipses shake, rattle, and roll. Leo Full Moons magnify feelings. The intensity of this Full moon tells us there is potential for a dramatic flair.
Eclipses act like doorways into different energy paths and are powerful enough to transform and change the direction of your life. The last eclipse was in September 2016 and February’s Eclipse on the 10th is going to bring an end to whatever energy began at that time. Lunar Eclipses are always viewed in astrology as being deeply transformative times. Seeing that the Eclipse falls in the sign of Leo, there is going to be a fiery element to this Full Moon. This energy is going to help push things along but it is also going to provoke abrupt endings. If something needs to be gone from your life, if something needs to come to an end, this Eclipse is going to set the wheels in motion and ensure that happens.
