“I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.”
― Edgar Allan Poe
A spectacular celestial event occurs on August 21st, 2017 at 2:30 pm ET when our most intimate cosmic bodies — Sun, Moon and Earth — click into place creating a Total Solar Eclipse.
This is the second of two consecutive Leo lunations — a magical bonus round to magnetize our heart’s desire. This extraordinary New Moon also occurs near the powerful fixed star Regulus, the Royal Star – the brightest in the Leo constellation.
“At this Leo New Moon, dare to be vulnerable and wear your heart on your sleeve! Why hold back your true feelings about someone you admire? Or pretend you don’t love something that’s not considered “cool” by the self-appointed tastemakers of the world? What’s really cool is to be unapologetically yourself.” -Astrotwins
Mars, our action planet, will be within four…

Today we can look forward to a New Moon solar eclipse at around 19h30 BST, which will kick start a brand new six month cycle for us all.
Taking place in the late degrees of Leo, the zodiac sign associated with leaders and great performers, this event will also trine Uranus, planet of sudden, sometimes abrupt shifts and social revolution.
See this as your opportunity to make some key lifestyle changes between now and early 2018 – ones that enable you to live a more authentic life. For an in-depth analysis, visit my Eclipse Forecasts page.
As if that weren’t enough, the Sun’s entry into Virgo on Tuesday will also coincide with a highly productive Mars-Saturn trine, enabling you to roll up your sleeves, get down to the nitty gritty and move mountains if you need to. Productivity is the name of the game for the next few days!

The Emperor – Major Arcana IV
For this week, we will need to pay attention to who we are dealing with, especially when it comes to potentially life-changing decisions.
The Emperor in Tarot brings with him a spirit of authority, rules that do not bend, and judgements that can come down hard in some situations.
The Emperor In Tarot
This is the natural and spiritual mate to The Empress, and it is the Yang energy taken to the highest level. The Emperor represents power that does not fade, energy that never wanes, and a sense of superiority that is born of knowledge and leadership.
In short, this is one tough cookie to deal with under the best circumstances, and an impossible adversary to defeat in the worst.
The Emperor In Astrology
Relating to Fire Signs, The Emperor is…

Solar Eclipse at 28 Leo: 11:25am Pacific, Monday morning, August 21st.
New Moon in Leo: 11:30am.
Moon’s eclipse of the Sun will also TRINE Uranus at 28 Aries! Watch for fireworks. This is a major turning point in our personal lives, AND society at large. Events could change suddenly. Unexpected, hidden insights could appear out of nowhere next week. Eclipse’s can take awhile to manifest too, so the next six months could reveal more sudden changes.
On top of this, most of the other planets are currently Retrograde, asking us to review and reorganize the growth we’ve experienced over the past few months:
Mercury Retrograde in Virgo until September 5th: Reflect. Bring something back that you’ve had on “hold”. Revise, reconfigure and try a different approach or path.
Sun, Moon, Mars and the North Node in Leo. That’s a LOT of action where Leo falls in your chart. You can…

Less than 7 days to go:

Putting our Love into Service
Showing our Brightness in the Work we do
A TSE is a RE-set / RE-boot
An intense, exact NEW MOON:
The end of an old cycle (could be even of the last 18 years when the last TSE with the North Node was in LEO – on Aug 11, 1999 – visible over Europe).
Stay tuned for the ECLIPSE post that will also show how this TSE links to the Aug 1999 TSE!
And the beginning of a new cycle, through a metamorphosis.
This Eclipse with the NORTH…

By Carmen Di Luccio, Collective Evolution
Mercury has just begun its latest edition of its retrograde process. It started on August 12th and will last until September 5th. In the weeks and especially days leading up to it, we start to notice its effects as Mercury slows down and comes to a stop before moving the other way.
Mercury retrograde is famous for the disruptive, delaying, and problematic effects it often has on communication technology, transactions, motor vehicles, anything with moving parts, and commuting in general. We could experience some challenges, misunderstandings, and errors around our communications, numbers/details, and more changes and cancellations in our schedules. We may also feel more challenged when we are doing analytical work without using our internal guidance.
