Leo rules the fifth house of children, friends and love affairs, and our attention will be focused here, It is ruled by the Sun, which begs the question how do you shine? What puts sparkle in your life?
Eclipses are like wildcards, and one of the ways we learn how and what we need to change and evolve. An eclipse can seem good or bad, depending on what it aspects in your personal chart, and often an eclipse is dramatic, or reveals important information if it aspects a significant point in your own chart/life. An eclipse often brings news pertaining to life's biggest events. The energy of an eclipse can go for months and in some cases years.
Almost always unexpected information comes to light and at this time something may be eclipsed completely out of your life, or into your life. Eclipses can bring positive or negative events depending on what it aspects in your personal chart.
Leo rules royalty, drama and theatre. Don't be surprised if things and people seem overly dramatic at this time and of course this could include drama Kings and Queens!
Relationships, fun and entertainment will be a focus during this eclipse, but Venus squares Saturn August 9-10, so this becomes a part of the eclipse energy.
Venus/Saturn energy can be difficult for relationships, and some relationships and other situations may end that are tottering on the edge.
An eclipse like this one occurred August 11, 1999, at 18 degrees of Leo. An eclipse can never be exactly the same as the other planets in the sky are always changing. However, if it hits a significant point or planet in your chart, the same themes and issues can repeat themselves.
Mars square Uranus may bring sudden and unexpected events, or explosive events in the world.
Jupiter is trine Saturn and this is a compassionate and creative transit that can bring harmony to different equations.
Also as Saturn is trine Uranus we can effectively combine the old with the new.
As Mercury is retrograde, events connected to the eclipse may be delayed for days or even weeks.
This eclipse is less harsh than the previous two and now is the time to enjoy some summer fun under the Leo moon. Happy eclipsing!
