“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!”
