NEW MOON in LEO, 22nd, Aug @4:28 am (aest) + it’s a solar eclipse. Sun and Moon conjunct, Mars is still close by, Trines to Saturn and Uranus.
Eclipses are powerful because they bring change, they open thing up, the universe steps in to lend a hand.
It’s a new moon in Leo, tapping into your heart of gold, finding the gold within you. It may take time, effort and courage to leap into the future path that this eclipse will take you, it’s energy hangs around for at least 6 months. Like most things it does take time to create and Leo is about creating something new for your future life.
Saturn and Uranus, (both dealing with future stuff), in a harmonious aspect to this new moon, solar eclipse, you may find that there will be some stabilizing, structure, to whatever awakening element that you may find yourself in.
Aquarius is the south node, the past, Leo is the north node future. It’s time to create a new road for yourself. Mars is pushing you along helping with courage, action you take and being brave as it’s time to leave something behind. It’s the only way.
The past few weeks have been a struggle for sure, coming out of the full moon in Aquarius also an eclipse, so things would have been shaken up and stirred, mentally and emotionally, felt messy and intense for sure. Here you may feel somewhat stronger and hopefully less stressed or traumatized by all the events which have taken place in that time. Aquarius, ruled by Uranus is the great awakener and on some level you have been too.
Stepping into the Leo energy, the north node, future path, leaping forward following your heart, with passion, strength, courage, and openness for a more creative, authentic expression of you and life. Finding your true spirit/passion/purpose and shine it out into the world. With a pure heart, integrity.
But it’s not easy shaking of all of the old stuff, picking yourself up, when you have been knocked down. Be brave, know you can face it all. With the spirit of a lion roaring from inside of you, find the gold within yourself once more, let go of the past traumas, and pain. I know it’s been one hell of a journey to get you here, and you are not done yet.
Find your gold and run with it.
- Pull out your birth chart, get one done to see how the influence of the eclipse energy will affect your future life.
- The houses below will give you an idea of where the eclipse will impact you. Working with the Asc, you need to know your birth chart for this.

This weeks tarot card is 5 of swords.

Fear of loss or defeat, existential angst.
Fear of the future. Cutting some ties.
Venus in Aquarius – what you value, or what you think is important.

Five of sword is not an easy card, it can be about conflict internal or external, can bring up fears, feeling defeated. But you are at a crossroads for change, if you are in conflict best option is to walk away, if you can? Ask yourself can I come out alright here, is it worth my time, energy.
You may find you are having an internal fight within yourself, you will work through and come out the other side, it is like you have to go through the internal struggle to get you to and through to the other side of it.
Keep in mind that this may also be or have been a long struggle that you have been going through and this week you find that it changes, you break through the struggle. As with the sun and clouds parting you find some relief or answers or may even know the way now, whereas before you were just in the fight. You may even be afraid that things will not change and all will stay the same.
Angst which can leed you to freedom, but it has not been easy, internal and external fights and conflict.
When I see this card the fight is over with, but you may still feel the edge of this on you. You have come through the struggle, particularly with thoughts or what you have been worrying about, usually form an external place.
Have patience with yourself and others this week.

JUPITER square PLUTO,
Since Nov these two have been meeting up or clashing, to bring about a deep change and transformation in your life. August 5th is the final phrase for these two. Expansion and transformation is what is being talked about here. This may have caused you to feel like you were being pulled from the inside out. Now is the time to sum it all up and to take stock of how well you are going. Some success and some failure’s for sure.
You have needed to grow and expand your world, your beliefs, move beyond the old way of moving and being in this life. You have been stretched, and all things have been put under the magnifying glass for you to see, where and what needs to be transformed, acknowledged, healed and of course the final acceptance of what all that is for you.
Keep in mind that other people, played apart in your growth, they pushed and pulled you to move. Each struggling to maintain some sense of their own worth and center. It was a tangle, mess for a while. You do have a need for power, success and are driven to achieve. Trying to find balance and your equilibrium again. It may have taken the long way, to get you to where you want to go, create and be.
Leave the old persona behind, time now for you to get in touch with your power center and direct your focus and energy to push you through. Direct your focus on moving forward to breakaway from the old ties, that bind you back and hold you in.
Pluto is the intense transformation, rebirth, that the soul is being called to change here. That does however ask you to take a very good, long, deep, honest look at you.
VENUS enters CANCER, You want a deeper, softer, sweeter, nurturing connection. The need for comfort and nurturing will be stronger, forming deeper bonds.
You will want to take your emotions a little deeper. Which can of course make things a little more rocking on the emotional front. You will be seeking love, a tad more serious, you want to take it up notch.
Your likes and dislike will be made from a more emotional feeling space.
She can be moody here.
Good time for some self-love and self-care for yourself and others, being a touch more sensitive to love issues. Or perhaps generally more serious.
You will want to connect with home, family and loved ones.
Venus rules love, money and relationship/partnership.
Moon in Scorpio while Venus is getting ready to dive into her emotion, so today keep your yourself steady.
This weeks tarot card, 10 of cups.
Water element, happiness, joy, bliss, contentment, inner feelings of wealth.
Mars in Pisces
This is a present moment card, find love, and peace within in, find time to just be you and connect with people or family that you love being around, be grateful, joyful for all that you have been through.
10 is an ending and a beginning all in one, a culmination point is at hand, a space for the old to leave/end and a space opening for the new to come in.
Let the stress go and get out of your head for a while. Try and stay in your feelings and heart space, open up to all that may come your way.
Simplify life, find time for fun and love, move slower through your day. Come back to you. Spend this week getting back to peace and harmony within yourself and with others. Getting back to a tranquil place. Enjoy this space, relax, be yourself.
