Why August’s New Moon Eclipse Is The Bomb!

August’s New Moon Eclipse takes place on 11th August 2018 in Leo at 7:57pm.

Eclipses come along in pairs or threes or fours. In this current eclipse season, this New Moon eclipse is the third and last of the series which started in mid-July with the New Moon eclipse, then sparked again at the end of July with the Full Moon eclipse and now here we are with the New Moon eclipse again.

Remember this, New Moon eclipses are the bomb! They are THE time to start anything new. So if you’re launching any kind of new project now and can do it after the eclipse, then you will have amazing energies on your side.

Astrologer, Yasmin Boland says, the New Moon is the time to set your intentions for the month ahead. By getting clear on what you want, you will effectively be sending out arrows of desire that cannot help but start to manifest. Of course you also need to work towards your dreams.

Here’s where the New Moon Eclipse is hitting on your chart:


Expect big changes re romance. If your love life’s been in a bit of a drought, that should end now. All you need to do is make sure you keep the fun alive – so do have a very good flirt (with your partner, if you’re attached, or with anyone you fancy, if you’re single!), don’t work too hard, don’t pressure your partner too much, and if you’re single and looking, don’t come on too strong at the start of the relationship. Easy. The eclipses are also fantastic news for creative types with a project they want to launch. 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… Read more.


Your home life is about to change. 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. The property market might be temporarily stuffed, but your stars suggest this could be an awesome time to invest, if you can afford it to it without mortgaging yourself to the absolute hilt. There’s also a restart due for you with your family now – particularly good news if you haven’t been getting on too well with your folks. Read more.


The New Moon eclipse is taking place in your Mind Zone, so your ability to talk your way in or out of anything is about to improve enormously. Your brain, what you say and what you write will be super-charged, even if you’re normally uncomfy expressing yourself.

This applies whether you’re talking to a friend, lover, colleague or boss, writing reports, SMSes, emails or even the Great Aussie novel! You’ll also be super-busy now – expect to be racing around hither and thither over the next three or so months, when the eclipse energy will start to diminish. Read more.


Ker-ching! That’s the sound that the Universe’s cosmic cash registers are making – in your favour. Expect at least one new source of income to open up for you now. It’s official: Your finances are looking good. But this part of your chart also deals with something else that’s at least as important as $$$; your self-esteem. If you’ve been down on yourself lately, change that. If you know your self-image hasn’t recovered from a recent battering, take steps to change that now. It could mean you need to stand up to someone, get away from a bully or even see a professional counsellor who can set you back on the right track. Or it could just mean you need to eat less and exercise more! Sounds superficial but it’s also true. Read more.


All of them! Everywhere! The New Moon eclipse takes place in your sign – a massive shout-out from the Universe that the time is ripe for you to take a gigantic, running leap into a new future. Have a look around you. Do you feel that you’re a bit off track? If so, panic not! This eclipse is your chance to take any part of your life which you know is no longer working for you and to ex it. 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. Read more.


No matter if life has been a hard slog or some kind of wonderful lately, this eclipse is 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. Yep. Now is the time to do one of the following: take up meditation, do yoga regularly, try talking to your Guides and Angels, do a psychic development 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. This is an eclipse in your Spirit Zone and it’s not to be ignored! Spooky but true. Read more.


Prepare to expand your social circle! The New Moon eclipse takes place in the part of your chart governing friends, acquaintances and the networks you belong to.

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 … but the bottom line is that the people you meet now (or at least one of them) could have a big impact on your life. So stay tuned! Read more.


Great news! The eclipse 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 pooh or get off the potty! Read more.


Good news; the New Moon eclipse (which heralds beginnings and opportunities) is taking place in your Travel Zone. In other words, if what you really want to do is pack your cases (or backpack) and head off into the blue yonder, the Stars are totally on your side. Ditto if you want to stay home and do some kind of self-improvement course (which could prove life-changing) and/or if you’re about to do some study. What you do in the next three to six months will change the way you view the world, so go with your heart and explore the options which most appeal to you. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Watch out! There’s an eclipse about – in your Sex Zone! No kidding. The Universe has decided it’s the right time for you to do something about your sex life. If it’s already very good, thank you very much, expect it to get better. You and your partner could be about to connect on a soul-level through your love-making. If it’s no good at this point? It’s time to worry less about your performance and more about being close to your partner. You have a chance now to learn what it really means to be intimate. Read more.


The doors to your love life are the ones opening now. 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 really could turn up during this cycle, so don’t panic about being alone if you’re currently single. Attached? This New Moon eclipse promises to take your relationship up a notch. Casual love buddies get more serious, committed partners move into together, living together couples talk marriage, and so on. Get it? Good luck! Read more.


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.
