Solar Eclipse

A solar eclipse is a time of high energy as the feminine moon places herself in front of the masculine sun. As the sun passionately engulfs the moon in his warm embrace, the moon enhances her own mysterious beauty. The combination projects a profound surge of development and transformation.

The perfect alignment is magnifying all of the truths within and around us like a laser beam stimulating our higher consciousness. The more we reject the natural order of change and timing, the harder this transition will be. Our feminine moon beseeches us to relinquish all restraints of stubborn control as we surrender to the divine timing of life. We are being asked to remain open and allow everything we have been waiting for to flow through us. Our manifestations are coming to fruition as the sun showers us in empowerment.

New Moon in Leo

The new moon in Leo last month asked us to lead with our heart. Now, we are being asked to move forward utilizing the inner knowledge of our souls. Our third eye is begging to remain open, and the thousand petal lotus of our crown is breathing in the universal energies.

Leo has an innate sense of intuition guided by loving compassion. The fixed energies of this sign are not limiting us by cementing us in our old ways, but instead are building a foundation of stability and security. Fire blazes within as our light is one in the same of our masculine sun. Paired with our newfound, solid footing we are shining our innate effervescent light and love as we remain open channels of earthy and universal vibrations.

Planetary Aspects

The Sun (divine masculine: creativity, energy, confidence, universal energies, warmth, happiness, conscious mind), Moon (divine feminine: softness, reciprocity, intuition, earth energies, cool, serenity, subconscious mind), and Mars (assertion, survival, sexual attraction) trine Saturn (boundaries and limitations) and Uranus (progression, ingenuity, enlightenment). This favorable aspect stimulates a lot of intense, masculine energies and pairs them with an intuitive softness allowing for favorable boundaries.

There has been a reoccurring trend with the ability to move forward with a new, inventive spark allowing for many changes. The pairing with the solar eclipse has made these shifts more drastic than they have been previously. We are continuing to discover our limitations and set structured boundaries with ourselves and others leading to healthy ways of being. Both of these circumstances are residing in both our subconscious and conscious minds.

Venus (love, pleasure, values) squares Jupiter (prosperity, growth, optimism) and Uranus, while Jupiter squares Pluto (rebirth, renewal, spiritual growth). This harsh aspect is placing difficulties between love, expansion, and progress. We are being asked to look at our values and evaluate where we want to grow. These changes of rebirth and renewal are not going to be easy, but are extremely necessary.

This solar eclipse really is about drastic changes and these planetary aspects are reinforcing transformations necessary in our lives. These alterations may seem harsh, however, the moment we choose to evolve we will be able to receive all of the gifts the universe wants to shower upon us.

Ceremony Tools

My solar eclipse and new moon in Leo ceremony is going to include open roads, star, and the universe incense opening myself up to infinite possibilities. Each of these aid in the manifestation of my most treasured dreams opening us up to the universe’s prosperity. I will be using white and violet (or lavender) candles to open my crown chakra to the universe and connect me to the source and my own spirit.

Originally I planned on Labradorite, the stone of change and transformation to be my crystal of choice. However, I believe I will be utilizing Rose Quartz more because unconditional love and compassion is going to be needed during these radical times of metamorphosis. I am also being drawn to Sunstones and Rubies that aid in empowerment, abundance, and growth linking to the magical Phoenix.

I am going to focus on the rebirth of myself as I align with my higher consciousness. As I rise from my current ashes with a newfound renewal and revival, I am going to fill myself with a warm empowerment encompassed by love and compassion. I can feel my fire burning, my soul vibrating at a higher rate, and my wings beginning to unfold. I am ready to transform and rise allowing my light to shine and my spirit to soar.

Be gentle with yourselves at this seemingly tumultuous time Eternal Waking Beauties. Allow yourself times of respite and begin to act upon impulses outside of your comfort zone. The universe will embrace you with love and acceptance as you remain true to yourself.
