5 Key Points For This Week and The Great American Solar Eclipse

1. Shedding your old skin and letting go of the past.

It’s officially the New Moon in Leo, with a Solar Eclipse, on August 21, 2017 at 2:30 pm ET.

Release something from your past so you can shine brighter moving forward. What was, does not have to be any longer. Let it go to make room for new beginnings. The future we experience, is the future we choose to create.

2. Creating a new you and activating your passions in life.

The key word here is “create”. This Solar Eclipse in Leo signifies a new beginning. Be creative and express your personality and talents more fully.

Leo is a Fire sign. Mars in Leo brings extra fiery energy. Attitude and behavior affects the future.

Mars heading toward meeting the North Node in Leo on August 27, 2017 signifies taking bold action towards creating your destiny. Do something and create something you can be proud of. This is an important time for artists of all types to begin a new creative chapter.

Shifts in leadership, power and egos could also create dramatic changes. Celebrity drama and gossip is a given. Fans, otherwise known as fanatics, of an idea will be extra vocal and possibly quite aggressive.

Venus enters Leo on August 26, 2017 at 12:30 am ET. This indicates further emphasis on the importance of creativity in our lives. Artists will find this period motivated by passions and beauty.

3. Rethinking your lifestyle and habits.

The Moon enters Virgo at 4:25 pm ET on August 21, 2017 - just 2 hours after the New Moon in Leo Solar Eclipse. The Moon signifies an all new growth phase following the Eclipse, that requires more effort and attention.

The Sun also enters Virgo this week, on August 22, 2017 at 6:20 pm ET. The Sun also meets Mercury in Virgo on August 26, 2017 at 4:42 pm.

Virgo is an important part of our next steps.

Mercury Retrograde in Virgo signifies a change in our practical habits, routines and lifestyle. Health and wellness become more important, especially in recognizing the errors of your ways, and replacing them with better habits and choices. Yoga is a great way to reconnect your mind and body.

It’s also an important time to have another look at your financial picture, and rethink your plans. Setting realistic timelines, and getting rid of the clutter and time wasters is necessary for best results. Take steps towards reordering and reorganizing your life.

Pay closer attention to details to make better decisions.

4. Practical action and higher aims in life.

Saturn Stations Direct in Sagittarius on August 25, 2017 at 8:08 am ET.

Your time is limited. Set goals you can achieve. If you’ve been feeling stuck, you could find that new priorities for the larger picture of your life no longer deserve a back seat. It’s time to use your time to manifest the life you want. This change will require real effort and dedication. Laziness is detrimental. Consequences of behavior and actions is likely to come into large focus.

Saturn stationing direct in Sagittarius is also saying, "I'm not going to hold myself back anymore. I'm going to work hard on making my higher aims in a life a reality." It's up to you to welcome the opportunities and push forward to make it happen.

I talked more about Saturn Retrograde in Sagittarius here.

Jupiter in Libra and Saturn in Sagittarius connect on August 27, 2017. Bias, censorship and media focus can show strong impacts and effects on the larger world. How does the worldview of others affect your worldview? The pendulum is still swinging. Do people want the truth?

5. Identity Politics

Uranus Retrograde has put a whole lot of attention on people's identities demonstrated in protests thanks to Mars in Leo. Freedom and expression are big topics. Plus Jupiter and Pluto, along with Saturn now going direct, substantial changes to the political landscape are shifting power.

Identity politics have become increasingly polarizing. As people try to assert their individuality, rebellion escalates the dramatics. Identification with the ego creates stronger divisions and emphasis on counter-culture. Personal expression can be over the top. It will get even more dramatic as we head into the Autumn.
