This month sees us moving back into ‘eclipse season’. We get two eclipses, first the Full Moon, which takes place on 8th August in Aquarius at 4:10am and then the New Moon. As you might know, eclipses are pretty much when the Universe changes gears. They mark the end (Full Moon eclipse) and a start (New Moon eclipse). You could think of them as…

A PORTAL TO YOUR NEW LIFE!
Think of the August eclipses as portals to the future and you won’t go too far wrong.
The only thing is, to make the most of this portal, you have to be willing to walk through it.
Change is exciting but, of course, it can also be disconcerting. The less resistance you put up, the easier the eclipse process will be.
How intense the August eclipses are for you depends where in your chart they’re falling – if they hit a personal point or planet in your chart, you will feel them more intensely.Once you start to follow eclipses, you will notice big events turning up in your life. Think of it like this. We came to this earth with a job to do, a soul purpose. However our egos sometimes lead us astray, and we wander off our path and away from our life purpose. Eclipses seem to work to put us back on the right path, sometimes unceremoniously. When an eclipse hits your chart strongly, all bets are off!
And here is what it means for your sign:
As the Full Moon eclipse takes place in your 11th house, it’s time to look at the things you’ve been hoping and wishing for. Either it’s going to become clear how you can make it happen or it might be about to become clear that it’s a pipedream you’d do best to move on from. As well, while the past few weeks have almost certainly been about you, the fun you can have, your romantic life, your self-expression, a child you’ve been indulging and/or a creative project you’ve had on the boil – but the skies now suggest that you think less about that and more about if you are carrying your weight where the groups you belong to are concerned.
As the Full Moon eclipse takes place in your 10th house, it’s time for you to write yourself a new job description. Either you’re about to change jobs or some very new and exciting role is going to come up for you professionally. If you have big work plans, the eclipse is going to help you to make things happen. This is the time to forget the past and create a new professional reality. As you do this, you need to make sure you are also finding a good balance between how hard you work and the time you get to spend at home and with loved ones. Your work/life balance needs to be addressed. Don’t neglect one for the other.
The Full Moon eclipse is taking place in your 9th House which is the part of your chart which is all about travel, adventure and anything else which broadens the mind – eg: study. It’s also the part of your chart which is all about religion and The Great Cosmic Quest. So if you find yourself off doing any kind of seeking in these parts of your life now and over the coming months, know that you are on the right cosmic vibe. It’s time for you to broaden your horizons! Life can change in an instant for you in your current cycle.
The Full Moon eclipse is taking place in your 8th house. For you, it’s all about cash, property and possessions – what’s yours, what’s someone else’s and where the two may or can or even should meet. You may find that you’ve been thinking too much about someone else’s needs but now comes a time when you start to focus more on feathering your own nest. There really is nothing at all wrong with that – in fact, with the Full Moon eclipse in your 8th house, it’s pretty much what you should be doing. It’s also the end of a cash cycle and the start of a new one – and it could be a new and improved one so have faith!
Lately, it’s been all about YOU. And guess what? That isn’t likely to change overnight. But the Full Moon eclipse in your 7th house of Other People and of Romance means it’s time for you to think less about yourself and what you want, and more about others and what they need. The Full Moon eclipse in your Love Zone (which this is) also marks the natural conclusion for relationships which have clearly reached their Use-By date. Compromise is crucial now, if you’re in a good relationship which is going through temporary troubles and delays. For some, closure on an ex is possible at last.
Now is the moment to take a good long hard look at yourself and where you are self-sabotaging yourself. If you know you are clinging to unhealthy habits (eg: smoking) which are doing you no good physically, now is the perfect time to give that habit away. If it’s some other unhealthy behaviour which is scuppering you again and again – eg: acting jealous, drinking too much – again this is the ideal time to bin the behaviour. If you’ve recently reformed (eg: started exercising properly) this is the time recommit to your new regimes. Meanwhile an important work project could come to fruition now.
The Full Moon eclipse in your 5th house of fun suggests that there is likely to be some kind of tug of war going on in your heart – you have hopes and dreams that you know you have to work hard to make come true. But you also wish you could have more fun. For some, a child,/creative project/romance will be demanding your attention when you know you really ought to be doing what you can to achieve your aims. Also this month, you could find that your wider social circle takes a back seat, as you focus on one person – most likely a romantic partner or prospect. Depending on your personal cycles, a creative project could be planted now – or come to fruition.
The last few weeks have most likely seen you giving Number One priority to your career. If that’s the case, you can expect your personal life to start demanding some more of your attention now, as the Full Moon eclipse takes place across your career and family zones. It’s all very fabulous doing brilliantly at work and getting kudos (or at least managing to hold your own). But don’t let your ego lead you into thinking that that’s the most important part of life. Because it’s just not. Sure, there will be time to start to focus again on your professional life, but right now, if you listen to the Stars, you will hear them reminding you to take care of your personal life.
Over the past few weeks, you’ve hopefully allowed yourself the luxury of caring less about the details and more about seeing The Big Picture. With any luck, you now have a much clearer sense or either where you are going (in a metaphorical sense) or where you want to go (in a literal sense). There has been mind expanding going on – via travel, dreams of travel, talk with someone with connections far away or study. Now, though, as you might have guessed, it’s time to rein yourself back in and check out what’s going on in your own backyard. There are little tasks and chores which need to be attended to before you head off for the wild blue yonder.
You might be interested to hear that coming the six months will pack some very powerful energy in your Sex Zone! Yes, there’s an eclipse in 8th House of All Things Intimate this week, so you can expect change in that department. It’s the right time for you to do something about your libido and your sex life in general. If it’s already buzzing along nicely, expect it to get even better. You and your partner could be about to connect on a soul-level through your love-making. (It’s a good year to discover Tantric Sex). If your sex life sucks at this point? It’s time to worry less about your performance and worry more about being close to your partner. You have a chance now to learn what it really means to be intimate.
The Full Moon eclipse takes place in your sign which is a sure message from the skies – it’s time to stop thinking so much about someone else, and time to start investing some emotional energy into your own well-being. This is a potentially highly emotional time so don’t be surprised if life feels extra intense. The trick is not to loose your cool, and to stay mindful of the fact that what happens now can be a path to your future. The Full Moon eclipse is definitely a marker for you – it can also be a turning point. If you’re not happy about where you life is headed, it’s time to turn and face a new direction.
The emphasis has been on the everyday – your routines, your daily work and health schedules, what you do for others. The click click click of life. The Full Moon eclipse suggests though that it’s time for you to think less about that and more about the hidden parts of life. Spare a moment for the esoteric. Spend some time alone in quiet contemplation rather than throwing yourself onto an endless treadmill of life where you don’t get a chance to think about anything much. There is a lot which has been swirling beneath the surface – and it’s time to allow it up for air.
