Leo The Lion: (July 22-Aug. 22)
The eclipses of this 18-month series have drawn attention to your partnerships. Patterns from your childhood history needed to be uncovered, repaired or removed in order to allow your growth into a more mature relationship. Psychotherapy may have been truly helpful.
For All Signs: On Aug. 5 we will experience a full moon eclipse in the sign of Aquarius. This particular eclipse is at the end of an 18-month series which has occurred in Aquarius and Leo. The change of saros (eclipse) cycles symbolizes a closure to a recent era in our lives, which began almost two years ago. Read your sun and ascending signs below for a discussion of the closure for you.
Aries: The eclipse season is bringing things to a conclusion concerning your community networking and development of friendships. Certainly you will continue to have the friends you have chosen to keep. But now it may be time to let go of the extras, some of the less meaningful relationships.
Taurus: The eclipses have focused a certain amount of intensity in the arenas of career (work in the world) and also home, hearth and family. You have stretched your worldly boundaries in the past 18 months to serve a new group of people.
Gemini: Legal, ethical or educational issues have been emphasized by the eclipses of the last 18 months. Travel was punctuated, whether it be of body, mind, or spirit. Exposure to those of different backgrounds or cultures openened your heart and led you in new directions.
Cancer: The departing eclipse pattern has emphasized issues of sexuality, intimacy, and material accumulation. Reorganization of debt and investments may be in progress. You may now be more aware than usual about existential matters related to life, death, and what is on "the other side" of normal, waking consciousness.
Virgo: Eclipses have pressured you to concentrate on improvement of work-related relationships and health maintenance. Honing your management systems in personal and work arenas was necessary to create order in your daily work routine.
Libra: The eclipse pattern emphasized your progeny or other personally creative births. Romantic ventures have been intensely emotional and self-revealing. You have also learned a few lessons in discernment concerning friendships and associations that no longer serve you well.
Scorpio: Matters concerning your family and property have been accented for the past 18 months. Old problems in relationships, even with the deceased, have been brought to consciousness for cleansing and healing. A new family member may have entered the scene, or you may have begun to spend more time with family in general.
Sagittarius: The accent of the last eclipse cycle has been on travel, education, care of vehicles and relationships to siblings, roommates, neighbors, or others who daily traverse your life. Habit patterns of thought were reviewed and negative thinking corrected.
Capricorn: The last eclipse series accented personal and financial resources. Greater understanding and awareness have developed related to expenditures of time, energy and money. Debts were repaid.
Aquarius: Your sense of personal identity has been the subject under consideration. Who are you becoming and who do you need to be? How do you wish to define yourself before the world? You were learning what is required for you to hold onto your identity while simultaneously maintaining a personally rewarding relationship.
Pisces: The departing Aquarius/Leo eclipses emphasized your need to create order, both internally and externally. The development of your projects have required the faith of your deepest self.
