Solar Eclipse in Leo August 11 2018

August 11 2018

The New Moon in Leo August 11th 2018 at 18 degrees is a partial solar eclipse. The solar eclipse August 2018 astrology is mainly influenced by a conjunction to Mercury retrograde. The major themes of this eclipse will be thinking, contemplation, deliberation, discussion and debate.

Leo is the natural performer of the zodiac — the actor, the drama queen, and the charismatic leader — comfortable at centre stage when any desired applause arrives and confidence is high with recognition of a job well done. The regal lion rules the jungle. We can hardly fail to notice that unmistakable roar or the halo of golden hair around the wild cat’s face. Through Leo’s lens, we need a focal point and anchor. We are drawn to leaders, whether we fear or admire them; we look to those who have the resilience to stand on the world stage to be observed and judged.

 This Leo New Moon eclipse is conjunct the asteroid Pallas Athena and the “ideas” planet Mercury, all squaring Jupiter in Scorpio, speaker of our highest and deepest truth. Pallas, whilst a warrior goddess, can help us to find peaceful ways to resolve disputes, thanks partly to her feminine wisdom and ability to see overarching patterns. Currently, her vision is effectively stronger than Jupiter’s, which, in Scorpio, has a narrower-than-usual range of perspective. 

It can make you feel extremely confident, proud, lucky and optimistic. The manner in which you express your exuberance is critical in determining the result, which can range from good fortune and success, to loss and embarrassment. The best way to handle this solar eclipse is to show respect, moderation and discipline. Don’t take on too many projects as this would end up wasting your energy and getting you nowhere in a hurry. Focus your energy on one or just a couple of projects.

This last eclipse of the year beckons us to tune into the diagnostics of the heart and notice what is going on there. Do we hurt? Are we lonely? What does the heart really want for us? Can it take the risk to open up once more and let life in more fully? Even if our desires sometimes bring pain along the way, the pleasure and satisfaction of fulfilling them may be worth the price of any temporary discomforts
