WE LIVE UNDER THE SUN & DREAM UNDER THE MOON
The Lunar Eclipse in innovated Aquarius on August 7th is just what we need to instigate a shift towards embracing our truth, and taking it to the next level.
Who are you, when no one is looking? Do you follow the crowd, or do you walk your own path?
This surge of cosmic energy is going to turn on the light onto what we keep hidden in the dark. Sometimes we are afraid to shine for fear of what others think, or we have a challenging time fitting in because we are not meant to live the truth that others place onto us, but our own.
The Moon is comfortable in rational Aquarius, as it gives a humanitarian influence, with an individualistic kick. We don’t want to be like everyone else, we want our unique talents to help them, and with the Leo at home in the Sun, we want to show off while we do it.
While Leo and Aquarius are polar-opposites, they are also star-crossed lovers. Together these signs bring Higher Awareness and World Peace – with Leo focused on the environment, and Aquarius on the people. This is a harmonious Lunar Eclipse, and much gentler than recent ones in the past. Typically, during Eclipse season, our illusions are ripped away, and we are often sucker-punched by reality. With the Moon in Aquarius at home in the 11th house of Higher Awareness, hopes and wishes, and the Sun at home in Leo within its ruling 5th house of creative expression and pleasure, we can take this inspiringly creative influence into areas which need the encouragement rise above the status quo.
The prior Leo New Moon which kicked off Leo Season, was all about tempering the ego, and finding our truth, or passion which serves humanity, and so this Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius, is a magnification of those intentions and newly discovered ideals. Now we can empower the seeds we planted, and receive a glimpse of them manifesting.
The Lion's Gateway
This Lunar Eclipse is also going to be the opening gateway to the Lion’s Gate on August 8th. Every year on August 8th, there is a cosmic alignment called the Lions Gate. This is when the Earth aligns with the Galactic Center, (rotational center of the Milky Way) and the star Sirius, opening a gateway, or cosmic portal between the different dimensions/physical and spiritual realms. It is called the Lion’s Gate because it happens in the astrological sign of Leo.
What makes this event so important is that there is a huge surge of light, carried through the Sun’s rays which activates DNA and transmits high vibrational downloads for higher awakening. Add that with the Lunar Eclipse, and you have a major cosmic event which is going to bring an ascension period at a massive scale.
While we will feel the fire of our truth burning within us, we must be careful when it comes to opposing forces, opinions and what must be left behind for us to live this truth. While this will be a gentler Lunar Eclipse, it will still call upon us to walk through the gates of initiation to prove us worthy in bypassing our old cycles so to carry out the new. Be compassionate and understanding to others, stand your ground and stay in your truth, but still open space to keep the peace.
Magic happens when you allow someone the space to be themselves.
With other planetary placements, such as compassionate Cancer within loving Venus, and Mars in Leo, we can expect relationships to enter new heights in their evolution. Often, during an Eclipse we are exposed, and are pushed to stand in front of our partners, vulnerable and naked in our truth. Sometimes this can be scary, because there are things that we can’t even accept within ourselves, and so we hide in fear of what others may feel when seeing what we keep in the shadows.
Embrace your truth, and be accepting of others. This Lunar Eclipse is in the sign of friendships, humanitarianism and higher-awareness.
