New moon in Leo
This eclipse again highlights the Leo/Aquarian axis and feels like the height of this energy given the series of Leo/Aquarian Full Moon and Solar eclipses on the following dates:
25 Aquarius – Aug 2016
22 Leo – Feb 2017
15 Aquarius – Aug 2017
Solar eclipse 28 Leo – Aug 2017
11 Leo – Jan 2018
Solar eclipse 27 Aquarius – Feb 2018
4 Aquarius – July 2018
Solar eclipse 18 Leo – Aug 2018
0 Leo – Jan 2019
As you can see, a certain cycle began in Aug 2016, culminates now and goes underground by the end of this year. Creative efforts that began with a lot of Heart in the past are materializing especially with Saturn in Capricorn now, whose time has come to give out rewards (and punishments) in form. The creative (Leo) work doesn’t end, however, and expressing our creativities with healthy ego while embodying a spirit of inclusion and innovation (Aquarius) is crucial. Eclipses bring changes so we are at a point of rebirth or deep shift relative to what we are creating and how things will look no matter where we find ourselves in the journey. Committing to intelligently working with a collective mindset at this juncture will help us profoundly in moments when we feel like choosing between war and peace and we’ll feel this more during the Solar Eclipse at 27 Aquarius on Feb 15.
The Sun, Venus and Mercury are also currently sitting on the South node at 14 Aquarius, heightening our thinking, needs and well-being around cooperation and unity, the more positive embodiment of this energy versus becoming stubborn and inflexible. They are positioned within the eclipse’s spotlight so there is a beautiful potential for the honest and authentic expression of our identities and individualities in a spirit of play, generosity and unity. Mars’ Sagittarian influence until mid-March can encourage this expression with a sense of adventure where we discover new philosophies and realities and remember to be lighthearted.
