THE 2017 LEO SOLAR ECLIPSE WANTS YOU TO LET LOVE DRIVE

Ready for a radical reset? The 2017 Leo Solar Eclipse wants you to drop the ego, fire up your heart space, and turn your true love into empowered action, says Sandra Sitron … Main Image: Spectra Art Space

 

New Moon Solar Eclipse :: August 21 2017 :: 2:30pm ET :: 28 degrees Leo 

An eclipse is like a huge inhale. A complete exhale. And then stop. Hold your breath. At the next inhale it seems as if even your cells spin in a different direction.

At the next inhale everything will be different …

Eclipses are about reset. Something must be let go of. Something new must begin. The way that you recalibrate yourself now— both in your private inner world and outside in the public world, matters. The effects of this reset may not be fully felt for six more months. But the calibration is happening now.

During this Leo New Moon, the Sun and the Moon line up, as they do at every New Moon. But now they are also in direct line with the Earth. The Moon’s shadow falls over the Sun. The Sun appears darkened. The light of the core energy source is “extinguished.” In the void of light, new seeds can be planted. A new code can be written.

The Leo New Moon Solar Eclipse wants you to drop your ego and let true love shine out of your heart center.

Leo is the sign of fiery love. All fire signs take action- fire only exists in the activity of the dancing flame. Leo shows that it’s not enough to just love. It’s necessary to bring your love into action.

It’s time to put love in the driver’s seat. Go somewhere. Do something. Use ALL of the four elements to manifest change in the world. Use your words (Air element), use your action (Fire element), use your resources (Earth element), use love and prayer (Water element).

The path forward is not simple. A paradigm shift is never easy. The energy of this New Moon is high. There’s a shortage of patience and a high potential of being triggered.

You need a plan, so you can move in alignment with your intention. How do you want to act? How do you want to be? Decide how you will take care of yourself, how you will confront your beliefs, how you will take action in the coming months, and how you will follow through on this plan.

Let the calibration and reset that is available for you now be fully intentional.

A bunny dives into a hole.
Fight or flight. The bunny flees instinctually. What do you do instinctually to keep yourself safe? Do you hide out and keep silent? Are you a fighter?

Mars brings the energy of action and aggression to this Moon. At this time of heightened fire energy make sure to keep yourself safe, but don’t let that stop you from taking action. Meanwhile, make sure to monitor your aggression.

New Moon conjunct Mercury
A tidal wave.
We are thinking and communicating A LOT during this New Moon, and our thoughts have their own momentum, like a tidal wave. Break up the momentum by noticing the unconscious beliefs that fuel your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. It’s important to know which beliefs are running the show.

Ask yourself what belief is underneath an uncomfortable feeling. At what age did that belief get formed? Can you have compassion for the part of you that formed that belief? Can you replace the belief with a new one?

Missing puzzle pieces.
This New Moon will bring opportunities to confront old wounds. Notice where you get triggered. Notice where you need to heal. It may all seem futile.

How can you solve the puzzle if pieces are missing? With enough attention, effort, and creativity nothing is impossible. Keep coming at it from different directions and you may find the healing you are looking for.

The pillars of the temple.
This aspect is the New Moon’s saving grace. We are staunchly supported by the Great Awakener Uranus who may introduce a new paradigm, and Saturn who may provide the structure to implement it.

The only danger is that too much harmony can result in complacency. Stay mindful of a tendency to think that someone else will “take care of it.” Say a prayer to invite forward positive change and deliberate integrity within yourself and within the world.

These potentials are activated. The only thing left to do is take action on them.

THE 2017 LEO NEW MOON WANTS YOU TO RISK YOUR HEART

Step into your fullest sparkle and share your wide open heart, no matter the risk. The 2017 Leo New Moon wants you to drop your defenses and shine the hell on, says Sandra Sitron

 

New Moon :: July 23 2017 :: 5:45am ET :: 0 degrees Leo 

Step into a shimmer vortex that offers you a chance to open your heart. For real. Heart opening is an art and a science. This moment demands that you do it for you. No one else.

Every New Moon offers us a chance to recreate ourselves. And right now, this refresh has to do with how you share your heart, and offer the world your unique spark of life. But how do you truly share your heart? What if it hurts? What if you lose something?

I asked for a message about this moon. I closed my eyes and ran my fingertips over my bookshelf. My hand grasped a worn copy of Pride and Prejudice. It seemed like a strange pick—at first. I had assumed that I would end up with one of the many witchy self-actualization books that fill my shelves.

But on further reflection, the message is so clear: Drop your pride and drop your prejudice. Yes, you need boundaries around your heart. You need to protect it. But when a scared inner child is no longer running the show, it’s possible to feel safe and to share open-hearted love at the same time.

“Opening” means allowing your heart to be soft and vulnerable. Not proud. Not prejudiced. No barbed-wire every time you get triggered. And you don’t have to be happy to have an open heart. You can open your heart when you are mad, or sad, or frustrated. Try it.

This Moon demands that you open your heart, because Leo teaches us about love. Leo begs us to let our unique spark of life force energy, of spirit, move out into the world. To beam out through our heart chakra and connect with others.

The connection can happen through an exchange of love, through creative expression, or through playfulness. Meditate on each of these modalities, and choose one that seems right for you to explore during this Moon phase.

As you move through the day notice when pride or prejudice take over, and give your tender ego a big dose of empathy. Visualize your heart opening even through challenging emotions.

The 2017 Leo New Moon is asking you to shine. Do this at the highest possible vibration by shining beams of gossamer honesty straight out of your heart. Think of this as a gift to yourself.

Eating a cheese sandwich.

The Moon is made of cheese. Mars wants to eat. Mars wants to take it on. Get it done. What are you ready to do, create, build, penetrate? What are you ready to engulf—mind, body, spirit, heart,all working together to shoot direct like an arrow out into the world? Yes, late summer is “vacation time.” But this aspect is not vacation. This is about putting your whole self into it. The push. All you have to do is focus your energy and then fly.

Reaching out to touch the sparkler.

You can’t always grasp and contain the things that are the most beautiful—you’ll get burned. With other things, if you try to own them, label them, contain them, they just dissolve. Because they were never meant to be owned. What made them so unique and alluring was the suddenness, the unexpectedness, the rush of freedom. You can’t plan your own surprise party. And if you try to trap the firefly in your hands for too long, the light goes out.

Instead, invite wildness, invention and genius in. Be a good host. Create space for Inspiration, make her feel comfortable. And let her leave when she’s ready. Build a solid relationship with change, innovation, and the wild unknown.
