New Moon Solar Eclipse - Aug 11 2018

Remember on July 27th, we had a FULL MOON BLOOD MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE one day after Mercury went Retrograde, it was a full moon, blood moon Lunar Eclipse.  That Full moon, Blood moon Lunar Eclipse, was the 2nd of 3 huge astrological events in a  cycle of releasing.  It was amplifying all of the "digging deep, looking within and letting go"of this intense period of time.

Now we are entering the 3rd powerful Lunar event on August 11, 2018 with the Super Moon, Full Moon with a partial Solar Eclipse.  This will mark the closing of these intense releasing energies YAY! and a week of acclimating to these incredible shifts before Mercury goes Direct again on August 19th.

The Sun and Moon and Mercury Retrograde are all Conjunct in Leo... That's some intense energies! They are square Jupiter planet of Luck.

With the Mercury Retrograde conjunct the solar eclipse of this New Moon, the major themes of this event will be thinking, contemplation, deliberation, discussion and debate, quite heavily in regards to past issues, topics from the past that need to be brought to light again to release, past lovers or reflection on past loves to release and move forward stronger as the Moon moves into its waxing phases.

Sun, Moon, Mercury are also Conjunct a powerful Asteroid, Pallas-Athena.  This asteroid is commonly referred to in charts because of her powerful effects on intellect, proper defense, love and beauty. This indicates that the issues of past, debates, introspection, and prominent people during this time will be centered around feminist issues, issues with mother, female gender roles, releasing these issues to move forward in a healthier and more balanced way.

A side note here on my personal interpretation of the New Moon vs Full Moon.  Many energy workers and spell workers use the New Moon to create new, manifest, "pull in" their desires, and the Full Moon to release.  I personally do the opposite and have found ancient writings that agree with my unique instincts.  The New Moon, in the sky, looks like their is no moon.  It is a Void, and in fact some practices call it the Black Moon, or Void.  What better place to throw the crud you want to get rid of, than into a Void or "Black Hole".  Once the Black Moon begins to safely wane, or grow, I feel it is safe to start setting intentions for creating, manifesting your desires.  Conversely, the Full Moon is full of so much power!  I love to meditate in the Full Moon, Moon Bath, and absorb this beautiful energy. How much more power she lends to your manifesting and creation work when she is at her most potent of power!  And then of course, as she begins to wane, (get smaller), then I will start any releasing work 3 days after a full moon.

Mercury Retrograde, as mentioned in past blogs, is not about moving forward or creating.  It can make you feel nervous and anxious. Be gentle with yourself and go within if you start to feel overwhelmed by the hectic pace or the wonkiness of the energies. This too shall pass!  You may find yourself reminiscing about the past, favorite places or activities since forgotten, or unexpectedly meeting up with people/lovers from your past. Negotiations and business matters will need extra attention and patience to come to fruition. 

New Moon/Solar Eclipse square Jupiter 
Squares are discordant aspects.  Jupiter, the planet of luck, may make some people feel overly confident or dangerously lucky in this dynamic time.  This challenging aspect with Mercury involved Jupiter suggests disagreements and arguments about ideas and beliefs about power and control issues, again with emphasis on gender roles, between people, groups of people and nations.  Be careful with your words and attitudes.  Beware of overpromising due to confidence and enthusiasm and then not being able to deliver. The manner in which you express your exuberance will likely lead to loss and embarrassment. Stay humble.  You will be better suited to look at your history of luck, success and confidence.  Where did these traits come from?  Are they stronger or weaker now?  What adjustments in your life, associations and attitudes need to be altered to release and increase your luck and success moving forward.  All possibilities are on the table and you can rightly put yourself in the forefront of new plans for the future. This is a time to question your old habits and behaviors as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.  This is not an ideal time to make a fresh start, but reflection, releasing and planning is at the forefront. Write your new goals down on a sheet of paper.
