I know, I know. If you’ve been anywhere near the spiritual, metaphysical or astrological news in the past month or so, you’ve probably been filled with ideas like Super Moons and Killer Eclipses and all kinds of other terror-filled concepts.
Let me clear a few things up for you, so you don’t hide under your bed all day on Monday.
During a Solar Eclipse, the Sun and the Moon are right side by side, in the same sign, and the same degree of that sign. This is the chart of the Solar Eclipse that’s happening on Monday the 21st —
As you can see, the Sun and Moon are right next to each other, or conjunct, in 28 degrees of Leo. This conjunction is trining Uranus in Aries, and transiting Mars (action, assertion, masculinity and ruler of Aries) is moving across the eclipse planets as well.
What you’ve got is a very powerful and fiery (since Leo and Aries are Fire Signs) ball of energy that wants to push outward into the world. This may manifest, depending on your own personal chart, as restlessness, anxiety, violence or even something else. But it’s energy that has to go somewhere.
Think about this as a way to look inward (or, if you’re a particularly physical person, outward) and discover what actions you need to take to make your life better and more easeful, but also more accomplished and fulfilled. This is not a time of sitting by the sidelines, in other words, but a time of locating and feeding your inner fire.
As always, be safe. There’s no use pushing so hard on something you end up wounded, physically or emotionally. Remember that self-care is always important, as is quiet time in contemplation.
