We’re moving past a potent, transformational New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Leo, in a brand new cycle.
The last two weeks have brought major, dramatic developments and dirt to the surface that we can no longer ignore and there are major planetary shifts and aspects unfolding over the next two weeks as we move to the Pisces Full Moon, suggesting a busy couple of weeks ahead.
Earlier today the Sun entered Virgo, and as it transits through the sign over the next four weeks this is a chance to integrate, heal, and embody what the Eclipse has brought forth to consciousness.
Aug. 23: Sun enters Virgo till Sep. 22, 2017
Aug. 24: Venus in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries
Aug. 25: Saturn stations Direct in Sagittarius; Ganesh Chaturthi
Aug. 26: Venus enters Leo till Sep. 20, 2017; Sun conjuncts Mercury Rx at 3+ Virgo
Aug. 27: Mars conjuncts North Node in Leo; Jupiter in Libra sextiles Saturn in Sagittarius
Aug. 31: Mercury Rx re-enters Leo; stations Direct on Sep. 5, at Leo 28+ 2017
Sep. 2: Mars trines Uranus in Aries
Sep. 3: Mercury conjuncts Mars in Leo
Sep. 5: Mars enters Virgo till Oct. 23, 2017; Mercury stations Direct.
Sep. 6: Pisces Full Moon opposite Sun in Virgo at 13+ degrees at 3:02 AM EDT.
With Venus-Uranus we can expect more dramatic revelations spilling forth. As Saturn prepares to station direct and Mars moves over the North Node — this is where the rubber meets the road. There’s no turning back. Events unfolding are changing the fundamental structure of your life, asking that you move in self-awareness, and awareness of your goals, desires, and what you are creating.
The energy continues to intensify as we move to the Pisces Full Moon. What unfolds then is likely to have ripple effects in ways seen and unseen.
You can’t control everything, yet, you can control where you toss the pebble in the pond. With awareness we have the opportunity to re-write a story and shift the trajectory of a situation towards a more creative, loving, and healing outcome.
On that note: earlier this month, I had the extreme honour and privilege to be at the United Nations to attend the Inter-generational Dialogues on the Sustainable Development Global Goals to be achieved by the year 2030, as set by the United Nations.
To say it was an humbling, inspiring, motivating, eye-opening, and empowering statement is an understatement. I will have more to say about this in the coming days — but I would highly suggest you familiarize yourself with these goals.
These are a list of 17 Goals starting with: No Poverty, No Hunger, Good Health and Well-Being, Quality Education for all, Gender Equality, Clean Water… Here is a link. If you are human, this affects you.
Although seemingly utopian, these goals are not out of reach. I cannot confirm the source here, but I heard it said that it would take only 10% of the US defense budget to, if not achieve then, make a significant dent in achieving these goals.
If we were able to achieve these goals for the world — there would be no need for a defense budget.
We live in a world in seeming chaos. It can be easy to get caught up in the drama, or feel overwhelmed and helpless in the face of all that is out of our control. But now more than ever, hopefully we are learning what affects one affects us all. We cannot wait for governments or ‘someone else’ to do something.
Now more than ever, there is a need to focus on where we can bring healing to the world, rather than fight with the shadows that threaten to destroy all that we hold precious, and beautiful. We have to make the change ourselves, do what we can, and give what we can. There are people around the world working towards these goals and together we CAN make a difference.
We will all die someday — what matters is the quality of your life and time here on earth; and the best we can do is leave this world a little better than we found it.

“We’re past a potent Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on Aug. 21, at 2:30 PM EDT at 28+ Leo.
“At the time of a Total Solar Eclipse the Moon eclipsed the Solar Disk, symbolically asking that we confront our subconscious and shadow; offering a greater than usual opportunity to cast away the veil of ignorance, ego, and Maya that blinds us. As the Sun’s disk reappears so there is a suggestion of the ‘return of the light’, and resurgence of life.
“This Eclipse was conjunct the fixed star Regulus, also known as the ‘Lion’s Heart’ which is said to have the passionate and volatile nature of Mars and Jupiter. Planets at this degree can be magnanimous, charismatic, powerful, and generous; as well as arrogant, narcissistic, and self-destructive — depending on one’s level of consciousness.
“Eclipses on this degree are known to shake the order in governments, with leaders, and kings. This is particularly striking given the path of Totality of the Eclipse spans the US, reflecting the state of the nation. As the Sun’ disk is wiped clean, expect further revelations to spill forth.
“On a personal level — this Eclipse on Regulus asks that you be aware of your own ‘shadow’ of arrogance, ego, and hubris — which will be self-destructive. Humility is KEY.
“Also Eclipses tend to reveal their effects over the course of years, and set patterns for at least six months. Sow your seeds consciously.
“This is also the second New Moon in Leo, and Mercury is currently retrograde, suggesting you have a second chance in the area of your life ruled by Leo — to see something or someone in a new light, and regain clarity on a situation. There is something golden birthing through the chaos…”
“…As Saturn changes direction, pause to align with an inner truth and clarify your goals. The journey is the destination, and the coming months will call for spontaneity, humility, and a willingness to explore the best way forward. Stay anchored in your integrity above all, and the awareness that’s arising within you in these days — it will guide you forth like a compass.”
“Very notably, this year Aug. 25, 2017, also marks Ganesha Chaturthi, and the beginning of the Ganesha festival in India.
Ganesha is the remover of all obstacles, and with Saturn’s direct station in Sagittarius, the sign that represents ‘God’ — don’t underestimate the power of prayer to remove the obstacles in your path and help you through this pivotal moment in your life…” READ FULL REPORT (approx. 3000 words) by making a one-time purchase below or signing up at this link.
