August’s New Moon Eclipse and What It Means For You

Don’t miss this month’s second eclipse. The solar eclipse will take place on 22nd August 2017 at 4:30am in Leo.

Eclipse season is big so pay attention this month!

Use the energies today as well as you can. Tap into them. Breathe into them. If you do yoga, meditation or chanting, be very aware of the eclipse as you do your practise. Ask your angels and guides to let you know what you need to do next, ask for information about your best way forwards. The answers will come if you’re listening.

Here’s where the New Moon Will Be Affecting Your Sign:

Aries:

The doors which are swinging open for you in the coming six months are to do with romance, creativity and kids. If your love life’s been in a bit of a drought, that should end now. You just need to remember to take time out to have fun. Romance is all about fun. And your chart is all about romance over the coming six months. Attached? It’s time to reinject some of the fun that’s gone missing of late. Work less and enjoy yourself more and the rest will fall into place. The New Moon eclipse this week is also fantastic news for you if you have a creative project on the boil. Go for it. Your creativity is now at an all time high, so make the most of it! And PS if you’re trying for a baby? The skies are on your side…

Taurus:

In a nutshell, the coming six months promise changes in your private life and your home life, thanks to this week’s New Moon eclipse. Perhaps you’ve been living at home and you’re about to move in with friends. Or you’ve been living with friends and have decides to get a place on your own, or move in with your partner. For some, it’s a change to the family home, pure and simple. A house move. The property market might still be shaky, but your stars suggest this could be a great time to invest, if you can afford it without mortgaging yourself to the absolute hilt. There’s also a restart due for you with your family/personal life – particularly good news if you haven’t been getting on too well with your folks or partner. That can change now. Make it happen.

Gemini:

This week brings a big gift with it; a New Moon eclipse in your Mind Zone this week, which is going to make it possible for you to draw a line under all that happened in the past, and move on. It’s a great time to stop driving yourself crazy with your thoughts and worries, if you’ve been obsessing. In the coming six months, you can also expect your ability to talk your way in or out of anything to improve enormously. Your brain, what you say and what you write will be super-charged, even if you’re normally uncomfortable expressing yourself. This applies whether you’re talking to a friend, lover, colleague or boss, writing reports, SMSes, emails or even a novel. Expect to be very busy. It’s all go!

Cancer:

There are some powerful energies around this week and they could well leave you better off financially than you have been in a while. Expect at least one new source of income to open up for you this year. If you do want more cash, it’s crucial to realise that money is energy. It basically responds to our thoughts. If you under-sell yourself, people are unlikely to insist on paying you more (well, unless you’re really lucky and terribly charismatic!) If your self-image hasn’t recovered from a recent battering, take steps to change that, not just because it will boost your bank account but also because solid self-esteem is crucial. Start to stand up to others – see a professional counsellor about this if you think you need to.

Leo:

Your life can change as much as you want it to in the coming six months thanks to the eclipse in your sign this week. The New Moon eclipse coming up in your sign is a loud message to you that the time is ripe for you to take a gigantic leap into a new future. Have a look around you. Have things gone a bit sideways? Have you lost on the swings what you gained on the roundabouts? If so, don’t panic. This eclipse is your chance to take any part of your life which you know is not working and to sort it out. You’ll know what and how. Special caution: you need to let go of anyone or anything you know is dragging you down. Move on now and you’ll be able to do it on your terms.

Virgo:

So how do you feel about meditation? Intuition? Astrology? Angels? This month is all about opening up a door for you which – if you go through it – should help make you feel like life is taking on new meaning. And that is? The door to your spirituality. Indeed. Now is the time to do one of the following: take up meditation or yoga (you’ll be surprised at how centring it is), light a candle and talk to your Angels, do a self-hypnosis class, start to analyse your dreams, begin to trust your hunches more. You will be amazed at how much your intuition improves over the next few months if you just give the smallest of nudges. And sound intuition is useful in ALL walks of life. Anything esoteric is likely to interest you now. This is an eclipse in your Spirit Zone and it’s not to be ignored! Spooky but true.

Libra:

The New Moon eclipse now takes place in the part of your chart governing friends, acquaintances and the networks you belong to. If you want to make new friends, this is the time to get out and about and to work your charm. For some, there will be some big life change (eg: a relocation or new job) which introduces you to a whole new group of people. Or it could be something as simple as you joining a new yoga class and making a great new friend. The bottom line is that the people you meet now (or at least one of them) could have a big impact on your life. Also be aware that any wishes you make now are extra likely to come true.

Scorpio:

A lot of the main developments for you in the coming six months will be all about your working life. The New Moon eclipse this week is taking place in one of the best possible places for you – your 10th House, which is the part of your chart which deals with your career. If you love your work but want to tweak your career direction, now is the moment to take action. Speak to the powers-that-be, find out what you need to study to get the right qualifications, etc. And if you’re happy in your work, the eclipse is still going to boost you – your professional stocks are about to soar. Hate your job? It’s time to do something about that. Really.

Sagittarius:

The coming six months will be all about you expanding your mind and your horizons. If you’ve been feeling trapped by the minutiae of life, that can change now. The New Moon eclipse this week heralds beginnings and opportunities in your Mind Expansion. If what you really want to do is pack your cases and head off into the blue yonder, the Stars are on your side. Ditto if you want to stay where you are but you still want to expand your horizons through study, reading, new ideas, new ventures and new friends. This period is not about getting bogged down in the details, it’s about seeing the big picture of what you want. Go with your heart and explore your options. The coming six months are also very good for you re teaching, study and publishing. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Capricorn:

Intimacy, power struggles and questions about who has the upper hand, cash, control and joint finances have been a focus for many of your for the past few weeks. This Full Moon eclipse suggests that you shift your focus a little. Instead of worrying about who owes and owns what, worry about what you have, and what you have to offer someone else. It’s as thought the Universe is asking you to think less about what someone else can do to make you happy, and to worry more about what you can do to make others comfortable. Rediscover the pleasure of giving.

Aquarius:

The New Moon eclipse this week is going to focus your attention on someone else – probably your romantic partner, past or present. Romancing someone (or escaping them) will be your focus for the coming six months. If you’re in what you know is a dead-end relationship, don’t wait a moment longer to knock it on the head, so that you clear the way for the love of your life to enter. He/she could turn up during this cycle, so don’t panic about being alone if you’re currently single. Happily attached? This New Moon eclipse promises to take your relationship up a notch. This cycle could also introduce you to one or more very powerful people who could change your life in a very good way. Avoid bullies.

Pisces:

How do you feel about your work, your current 9 to 5 set up? Hopefully you want change because that’s what’s forecast for you in the coming six months, thanks to this week’s New Moon eclipse. There are changes afoot in the way you spend your days. For some a whole career direction will mean that your daily routines are altered forever. For others, it’s just going to be minor tweaks to your current situation. If you’re not happy with your job description and duties, NOW is a very good time to approach your boss with an idea for how it could be made to work better. Also a good time to change your diet and exercise routines and regimes. If you know you’ve been slack, there’s rarely going to be a better time to get back into a good routine than now.
