“During a Total Solar Eclipse, the Sun, Moon and Earth will be in complete alignment. The three cosmic forces, the holy trinity of our Universe, will come together as one, almost like a grand reset that will help to bring about the start of a new cycle.
The August 21st Solar Eclipse falls in the sign of Leo and will be inspiring you to transform so you can start a new chapter that is more aligned with your soul.
Solar Eclipses are like amplified New Moons and often bring about transformation, new beginnings and changes. Their potency can sometimes be intimidating, but it is important to remember that they always put us on the right path.
The ancients believed that during a Solar Eclipse, the light of the Sun would give way to the darkness in order to be transformed. This momentary darkness was believed to be a highly spiritual, an awakening moment that would help the Sun to return even brighter and stronger in the sky.
To aid in this awakening process, the ancients believed that divinely inspired information from higher realms would be sent down to Earth during the window of the Eclipse.
In fact, the ancients believed that when a Solar Eclipse fell in the sign of Leo it indicated that there would be some ‘enlightening’ message regarding the King.
Of course, in the US we no longer have Kings but we do have leaders that govern the country. For this reason, many astrologers have turned their eyes towards the President and are curious how this Eclipse is going to affect him.
It is much more interesting however, to take a look at the bigger picture influence of this Eclipse and what is really going on behind the scenes. It seems that for the US as a country, big changes are in the works and it is likely that this Eclipse is going to bring about lasting and profound changes.
This new journey will take time to develop, and all the facts may not be clear just yet, so focus on aligning yourself with your soul, your higher being and your inner essence and the rest will take care of itself.
New beginnings are on the horizon for everyone, but it all starts with raising our consciousness and allowing our inner light to lead the way.
Happy Solar Eclipse!”

Feeling grateful for his beautiful contribution, and for the gift I’ve been given of spending time this summer with his son Cal. I recently recorded my first track in his studio, which is filled with Glen’s presence and memorabilia and makes his passing all the more poignant. Such a beautiful life
“The Lunar Eclipse falls on August 7th in the sign of Aquarius, and will be shaking up your life so you can make some much needed changes.
August is definitely one of the more potent months of the year and will be bringing about changes and shifts in your mind, body and soul.
The most significant date that August has in store for us is the total Solar Eclipse which falls in the sign of Leo on the 21st.
You have probably heard by now that 2017 is the year of new beginnings, and perhaps you have even felt the cosmos guiding you to start a new chapter in your life that is more aligned with who you are and where you want to be.
There is no doubt that the consciousness of the planet is on the rise and even though there is still a lot of corruption in government and politics, it seems that all of this is coming to the surface in order for it to be exposed.
Big corporations and organizations that have been getting away with misconduct and lies are no longer going to be able to hide, as everything is slowly rising to the surface.
For true change to happen, all of this mucky stuff has to rise to the surface. We have to come face to face with the dark in order to transform it into light.
This is happening on both a global level and on an internal level as well. Perhaps this year you have also had to clear through some of your own muck in order to transform it into light.
All Lunar Eclipses are about releasing and letting go, however what makes them potent is that the Universe often intervenes and releases things from your life that you haven’t yet had the courage to release.
If something has felt shaky in your life, or if a particular area of your life has been volatile for a while, this Lunar Eclipse is likely to bring things to a head. This is so you can clear the way and make room for the rest of the energy to come.
There is also a calling to break down some of the boundaries or barriers that you have given yourself so you can achieve all that you desire. As it goes, the only limits you have are the ones that you give yourself.
There is a revolutionary energy to August and it seems that this Lunar Eclipse is definitely going to be triggering this in a major way.
The time has come to step out of your comfort zone and break away from the herd. This Aquarius Lunar Eclipse will be forcing you to pave your own way and to do away with things that are no longer in your highest interest.”
