Each eclipse phase is an opportunity for a conscious upgrade. Since the last solar eclipse in Leo (August 2017), does your light shine a bit brighter? The Leo in your birth chart is a sun sign, connected to your spiritual journey through encompassing individual creation and authentic expressions. Who were the people that inspired you, giving you permission to step into more of your own courage?
Our solar eclipse was shared across the globe, which meant unification was taking place, with all individual expressions coming together to create something bigger. This path of synchronization establishes a sense of hopefulness for humanity. We use eclipse energy to understand how important it is to create from a place of love rather than fear (our Leo trait), expressing ourselves fully with courage and not to compromise our unique truth.
Now that we have reached a lunar eclipse in Leo again, check in with your unique truth. Have you allowed your head and heart to merge? We each are responsible for sharing our gifts, but self-expression is an outward energy. So we cannot get stuck inside our heads, thinking too much or overly concerned with what other people are thinking. If we do, we are unable to fulfill the vision for greater humanity, something that functions better as a collective, since the whole is greater than the sum of its individual parts.
Every gift you give with one hand, can be taken away by your other hand. This shift of coming together must happen with both hands open. Allow your ego to crumble away like dirt renewing itself for life to grow on earth. In retrospect, our last solar eclipse, where the moon completely covered the sun, diminished our light, our life source. Between then and now, did you let go of your soul to enter the depths of hell to be saved by the mercy of Leo’s energy? It could have been joyous or painful—either way, realize that the sun descends into the underworld for battle, but always rises again.
