Leo New Moon Solar Eclipse

28 degrees 52 Leo
The Great American Eclipse in Leo is a potent New Moon conjunct the North Lunar Node and Mars. As this is the first total solar eclipse visible across the entire continental United States in 99 years, this is certainly an historic event. This is the second Leo New Moon in a row, a rare event in itself and what’s been incubating is our sense of our own special destiny and how we may channel it to serve the greater good.
The Sun represents our life force, vitality and conscious purpose. The brief blotting out of solar energy to the Earth by the Moon can trigger a potent alchemy and ‘eclipse’ our ego nature. It can temporarily drain us of our vitality and energy. A renewal of our confidence and sense of purpose is calling us now. As the eclipse is also conjunct the North Lunar Node, we may get a glimpse into our future potential as a solar eclipse opens a portal to our evolution.
Warrior Mars has been traveling closely with the Sun for weeks now and one of the keywords that seems apparent for this Sun-Mars is Leo is ‘emboldened.’ Leo is the sign of confidence and Mars amplifies this influence by adding more heat to the fire. We may experience wild swings in our Leo nature of confidence, boldness, creativity and love.
A Grand Fire Trine involving the Leo New Moon Eclipse, Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus-Eris in Aries ignites the skies in a synthesis of enthusiasm, righteousness and rebellion. What we witness emerging in the collective is in some way arising within our own lives and calls for a mastery of our instincts and alignment with a clear vision of the future. Sudden twists of fate can occur in an instant and blindside us, especially with the influence of Uranus, the Great Awakener conjunct Eris the Goddess of Discord.
The Sabian Symbol for the 29th degree of Leo is “A mermaid emerges from the ocean waves ready for re-birth in human form.” This is a sign of metamorphosis and of merging the mystical and magical spirit with a renewed body and mind. The alchemy is in process and while the re-birth can be painful and messy, the result can be truly magnificent.
This blaze within me ignites the passion of my soul. When I masterfully channel this fire into strength and strategy, I win. I slay my own ego to arise with greater courage and power. I am a warrior of bold love.
I possess a goldmine of divine light within me. The alchemy of my Inner Gold is the wellspring fueling my destiny. My heart’s desire lies in protecting those I love, my soul tribe. I rise to new levels of valor with resilience and dignity.
I sense a turning point of purpose approaching. It’s time to articulate my personal manifesto. Relationships may test me, but as my confidence bolsters so does my intelligence. I open to flashes of insight from the collective consciousness and follow my curiosity to new levels of awakening.
I feel like an unstoppable force of bold love. I’m a survivor and can transform my vulnerability into personal power. I am the generator of my own abundance when I tap into my special gifts and express them confidently. When I do the work that’s required I feel like I can change the world and shift paradigms.
Destiny is calling me. Fate is on my side. When I align my specialness to a higher purpose, the Universe conspires to manifest my desires. My grand metamorphosis requires the transformation of ego from the tomb to the womb. My heart is renewing to the innocence of the divine child – radiant, joyful and pure. My inner royalty is ready to emerge and receive its due admiration.
I’m devoted to the mastery of myself. From my inner sanctuary, I refine, perfect and polish my mind and message. As I embody my creative power, I see beyond the surface and allow no one to manipulate me. What’s essential is that I never betray myself. As I illuminate my deepest motivations, the alchemy of my shadow is purified with fire.
My heart is brimming with hope for the expansiveness of life itself. I rise to my responsibility as a heart-centered leader and mother-protector. I balance kindness with assertiveness to achieve creative potential in partnership. As I take bold action the future looks bright with possibility.
My confidence is radiant, powerful and magnetic for all to witness. My deep, passionate drives possess me to reach new creative heights. I allow no one else to define me, my beliefs or my morality. Betrayal is met with dragonfire. As I master myself through discipline and duty, my destiny is transformed.
As the light of consciousness constellates within me, I witness the collective karma with awe. This is the time I was born for. My lifelong spiritual quest has led me to a place of deep knowing. I am my own guru. It’s time to share my wisdom with the world as a bold and enthusiastic seeker of light. There is no hiding my radiance now.
An awakening is stirring at the very fundamental levels of my life. When the ground shifts beneath my feet, I find the inner orientation to steady myself and thrive. Deep and true intimacy takes bold and strategic courage. I honor my desire to bond and love, but cannot be possessed. I am sovereign to my own dignified soul.
It’s time to allow myself to be truly seen and loved. My specialness is unique in all the world and I welcome its appreciation. Love can be a battlefield. As I investigate my own desires and responses, I find the answers to my relationship needs. I shine as the architect of my heart’s calling.
I’m waking up from the collective dream. At times the struggle to express my higher purpose can feel burdensome. I can’t save the world but I can heal the collective soul wounds. I shine when I infuse my work with meaning and sacredness. This is a time to transform the world through acts of kindness and love. My heart contains a vast universe of compassion.
