Astrology is the 5000-year-old Babylonian practice of studying the stars’ movements to determine their influence on the planet. It mixes the empirical and the mystical—part-nature cult and part-science (calculating planetary orbits).
The signs of the zodiac are subdivided into four groups—fire, water, earth, and air. Each zodiac sign is influenced differently by planetary events, and there is no shortage of those ahead. In addition to the total solar eclipse, which is a major celestial disruption, seven planets are retrograding: Mercury, Saturn, Lilith, Pluto, Neptune, Chiron, and Uranus. From Earth they appear to be spinning backward, and chaos is likely to ensue.
Your eclipse predictions
The moon will conjunct the sun, causing a new moon and a solar eclipse in Leo on Aug. 21. According to astrologers, all signs will feel the moon’s bossy moment. They predict we’ll be struggling between duty and desire, questioning the status quo and our personal direction as the heavens flip the script. “It is a good idea to take the time to reprogram the and to see if one is driving to the destination we want or…driving on autopilot.”
Astrological Predictions for Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You Aries are known to be risk-takers, but relying on your survival skills is usually better than putting yourself in dangerous situations. Sometimes though, you overcompensate and retreat from initiating action by convincing yourself that the status quo isn’t so bad. Your days of waiting are over as this brilliant Leo Solar Eclipse invigorates your 5th House of Self-Expression, prompting you to make the changes you dream about. It takes courage to let go of the familiar and embrace the new. Fortunately, you are up for the challenge.
Astrological Predictions for Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Demonstrating your commitment to home and family is vitally important to your happiness, especially if someone is doubting your integrity. But you’re not interested in suffering fools now. Other people’s judgments may be based on their own fears rather than your intentions. Nevertheless, you have an opportunity to clear the air of uncertainty by addressing the most basic assumptions of your relationships while the expressive Leo Solar Eclipse activates your 4th House of Foundations. Getting back to the basics always feels right to you; however, now it’s imperative. There is beauty in simplicity.
Astrological Predictions for Gemini May 21 – June 20)
There’s no time like the present to change up your daily routine. Perhaps the pace of your life has increased so much that it has reached a critical point. Fortunately, you can employ the transformational energy of the Leo Solar Eclipse as it rattles your 3rd House of Distractions. Take a long, hard look at how you spend your time on a day-to-day basis and eliminate non-essential activities. Once you cut away the excess noise, you can always add back a few things that bring you enjoyment without overloading your schedule. “Complexity is your enemy. Any fool can make something complicated.”
Astrological Predictions for Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
It’s tempting to accumulate many possessions as you move through life. In fact, the Crab tends to cling on to objects it likes, especially when they have sentimental value. However, there are times when a good housecleaning is in order. Thankfully, the resolute Leo Solar Eclipse falls in your 2nd House of Personal Resources, revealing a new relationship between you and your material world. Ultimately, you will feel less encumbered and lighter on your feet when you get rid of the excess weight you are carrying forward.
Astrological Predictions for Leo: (July 23 – Aug 22)
You should be extra careful during this eclipse. Your psychology is very much affected and your inner critic awakes and yells. Your past mistakes and whatever you think wrong on you and the like, are constantly in your thoughts. Experiences to support the foul mood also happen. You are forced to re-evaluate and change yourself. In the best case, you’ve initiated this procedure yourself, and thus, it goes more smoothly and pleasantly. Body’s health also can be affected, even more so if you had a “wild” previous period.
Your financials will also be affected somehow. This probably doesn’t mean extensive expenses though. Opportunities, things that look as opportunities, and in some cases a threat of a financial disaster are the more likely possibilities. Don’t panic, and don’t run into action. Keep your calm, investigate, plan, and act after the 5th of September.
Astrological Predictions for Virgo: (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
I consider those born under the sign of Virgo to be lucky with this eclipse. Some of you might not even feel it, and just see in your life the formation of a steady growth in your financials. In some cases steady won’t mean slow at all. Those of you who were born the first few days of the sign – not even the whole first decan – may have to deal with some extra stress, but no more than that.
If you are engaged in spiritual activities or studies, then you will probably face some … commotion there. A change in your beliefs or practices, a change in your school or teachers and things like those are possible. Once again though, this would be for the best, so other than the extra stress it may create for the moment, there is nothing to worry about even there.
Astrological Predictions for Libra: (Sep. 22 – Oct 23)
Although this eclipse is rather unlikely to create a serious damage in your lives, it won’t be any easy on you. Your relationships with your friends is the main focus. All short of problems can occur, and old and buried problems may resurface. This will eventually heal the good founded friendships, but can destroy the rest. Or at the very least make them more distant. If you have kids, they may experience similar situations. The same – and more probable – if they are of the sign of Libra. Marriage also may have some problems, or even more than some. And once again, the same goes for your kids, if they are old enough.
Astrological Predictions for SCORPIO (OCT. 23– NOV. 21)
Eclipses are the most dramatic tool that the universe uses to get attention and foster change. They always come in pairs, as a full moon (lunar eclipse) and new moons (solar eclipse). This particular eclipse is quite exciting because it will be a new moon, solar eclipse lighting your tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement. It is the one part of your chart that directs your attention to your professional abilities and status. This solar eclipse will open doors that have been previously locked, and you may even have a helping hand from a VIP.
Mars, your ruling planet, is joining the energy of this eclipse, and will be connected to the sun and moon. This is important because Mars will help boost your success. Saturn, in your house of earned income, will reach out to Uranus, planet of invention and surprise, suggesting you will make money from your creative approach to work. You will be given more opportunity to show your savvy style.
The Sun’s position will be doubly important for you because the Leo rules the highest point in your chart, and it will be receiving brilliant vibrations. Rarely have you ever had such a powerful professional outlook for making a name for yourself.
Astrological Predictions for SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22– DEC. 21)
Your ninth house of long distance travel and international relationships will be lit brilliantly during this eclipse. If you travel, you are likely to gain a life-altering new perspective from a place you’ve never been to but always hoped see. The eclipse’s position in the ninth house means a door will be opened to a new path. The ninth house is mainly intellectual. And ancient astrologers rightly felt that travel was an excellent form of first-hand education, which is why international travel falls in this area of the chart, too.
Saturn, planet of long-term foundations, suggests that what you experience on this trip could provide a lasting imprint on you—it might even shape the kind of work that you were born to do.
Astrological Predictions for CAPRICORN DEC. (22– JAN. 19)
There’s good news for Capricorns, as the second eclipse in Leo will be even friendlier to you than the first one on August 7. Planets will go out of their way to help you on a remarkable scale dealing with finances, but the type of money you will be discussing will be different.
As the golden triangle appears, you will find stability and security. According to many astrologist, the eighth house is the part of the chart that deals with the money you need—outside your savings—to make a dream a reality. This is the house lit up now, meaning a dream is within your grasp if you reach out and apply for the funds you need.
Astrological Predictions for AQUARIUS (JAN. 20– FEB. 18)
August will be a landmark month for you, for one eclipse falls in Aquarius and one in your opposite sign of Leo. The job of an eclipse is to spotlight the truth and also to push you out of your comfort zone showing you your considerable strength within. The new moon eclipse will require adjustments to a new reality. Your romantic partner will be your full focus on or near the date, for this eclipse will light your seventh house of marriage and commitment.
Often an eclipse will crystallize what has been going on for a long time—if you both are in love, you may both want to commit soon. If you are married, then you will want to make more of the relationship. If you have been unhappy in your relationship, a person may be “eclipsed out” of your life. If this occurs, it will be because you want it to happen or it will benefit you in the long run. No matter what occurs, this eclipse will put you in charge.
Astrological Predictions for PISCES (FEB. 19– MARCH 20)
The eclipse will light your sixth house, which rules the preventative measures you take to stay healthy and your work projects. You will find the Sun and new moon in your sixth house joining hands with the planet of surprise, Uranus, in your second house of earned income, and the planet of security and long range gain, Saturn, in your tenth house of fame and honors. This suggests that the eclipse will bring a great opportunity for you to elevate your professional status and reap the benefits financially.
In terms of health, fitness will also be on your mind. If you start a new program within a week from today, you’re likely to see results as Uranus and Saturn (legs of the golden triangle created during this eclipse) will help
