Shine On: Total Solar Eclipse in Leo

http://www.kosmicmind.com/kosmicmind/2017/8/17/shine-on-total-solar-eclipse-in-leo-2017

“For thousands of years, eclipses were viewed by many cultures as negative omens, often feared and revered by those who witnessed them, and for obvious reasons. Especially with a total solar eclipse, the experience is mesmerizing, visceral, and eerie. In a little over an hour, the Moon passes over the Sun, creating a darkening of the sky, a drastic drop in temperature, and during the few minutes of totality, spectators witness spectacular visual effects such as the appearance of the solar corona, the emergence of stars and planets typically hidden, and sometimes, in rare cases, shadow bands…

It’s no wonder that our ancestors viewed eclipses with terror and came up with various superstitions about them. Science has done much to dispel this superstition, and has given us a more precise technical understanding of why eclipses happen, but science has also stripped the magic and archetypal reality away from the modern mind. Those who witness a total solar eclipse cannot deny their own experience which is profound and unforgettable…

This solar eclipse seeks to awaken within us a renewed desire for life, vitality, and self-expression which serves to liberate and free us from limitations and past constraints… [P]revious barriers and obstacles are suddenly and unexpectedly cleared, making way for new avenues of experience and opportunities to express individuality…

With the south nodal lunar eclipse in Aquarius just two weeks ago, we crossed a threshold of accelerated release and dissipation of past patterns, attitudes, and behaviors that have been limiting the flow of life force, creativity, passion, and vitality in our lives. This north nodal solar eclipse in Leo is like a great awakening of excitement and zeal.

Remember, that the greatest of all revolutions are within. Uranus’ close trine to this eclipse encourages us to liberate ourselves and gain more autonomy and independence to be who we are.”

New Moon / Solar Eclipse Update

“[T]his is definitely a time to honor a marker of huge change and the agent of a massive reset… Be aware, through a list or a mental awareness, of what you are resetting. Do something that symbolizes coming into a still point, an unplugging, a dropping into the void…

Acknowledge the absence of the sun and solar energy as it is eclipsed from the earth for those few moments as symbolizing the absence of what has been feeding old patterns and beliefs for you these past years and maybe your whole lifetime.

As the eclipse recedes and the sun comes back, imagine that it is feeding and nourishing and energizing a new you, one that has been reset to a new vibration, a new consciousness, a new frequency.

Stepping into the Light – Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius

http://www.kosmicmind.com/kosmicmind/2017/8/3/stepping-into-the-light-lunar-eclipse-in-aquarius-2017

“Eclipses have the power to poke holes in our ego/identity, revealing things deep within us that we’ve been avoiding or totally unaware of. Syncing up with Mercury’s retrograde cycle, this eclipse season is powerful and dynamic in terms of changing our focus, direction, priorities, and perceptions.

Eclipses also reverberate through time. They connect us to the past and future in deep, encompassing ways. Whatever we’re currently dealing with has its origins long before this moment and will have consequences for months in the future. Eclipses are not isolated events, but a long process of change and reversal of circumstances.

Since this is a south nodal, lunar eclipse in tropical Aquarius, we are working on releasing, moving on, and then stepping more fully into the future after the solar eclipse on Aug 21. That means that the themes you’ll be dealing with during this lunar eclipse will be issues from the past: moving beyond stagnant attitudes, habits, and perceptions that are no longer useful. In the two weeks between this lunar eclipse and the following Aug 21 solar eclipse, we’re in a deep process of archetypal death.”

Full Moon with a Partial Lunar Eclipse – Monday, August 7

https://thepowerpath.com/moon-updates/full-moonlunar-eclipse-update-8-7-17/

“This is the first of the 2 eclipses bookending a time of intensity and major opportunity for growth. The Full Moon is a perfect time to set your intentions based on what you have been able to evaluate and re-evaluate about your life, where you have been and where you wish to go…

Also honor this Full Moon as a gateway or a portal, like opening the door to this great potential of a powerful RESET for the areas that need it in your life. This portal stays open until the full solar eclipse on August 21. The time between the 2 eclipses is very powerful and could be intense and chaotic with lots of movement and action, some difficult and unwelcome, and some, a welcome breakthrough.

Best if you really work this time to your advantage and use it well. Don’t get distracted by other peoples chaotic process. Stay to your own focus, intentions and reevaluation. The next eclipse will be a marker for a huge reset.” ~Lena Stevens

Guide to the August 2017 Eclipse Season

https://the-numinous.com/august-2017-eclipse-season/

August 7 :: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse :: 15 degrees Aquarius 
August 21 :: New Moon Solar Eclipse :: 28 degrees Leo 
August 25 :: Saturn stations direct 
August 12 – September 5 :: Mercury Retrograde 

“With all the fire in the sky this month, it’s important to consider the two extreme expressions of Leo energy: as symbolized by the Thoth Tarot card “Lust,” and the Rider-Waite Tarot card, “Strength.”

Both rule Leo, but one card has our passions so inflamed that we are naked with lustriding a lion, not paying attention to where we are going. The strength card has us taming the same lion, and he’s calm and cool but ready to strike if needed.

To help contain the fire, we need the rich mineral soil of earth; Saturn direct helps us learn that we only have so much time and energy. The August 2017 eclipse season helps us harness this energy to break our own hearts open, burn off what’s no longer useful, and create space to feel deeper layers of authenticity and true innovation—using the rational, Aquarian energy that balances Leo season.

Working with both Saturn and Uranus during the August 2017 eclipse season time allows us to tap into a more holistic and effortlessly creative existence, so we can truly write our own story—and transform from selfish savage to selfless hero.”

Engage Your Passion – New Moon in Leo

http://www.kosmicmind.com/kosmicmind/2017/7/19/engage-your-passion-new-moon-in-leo-2017

“Use this New Moon to greatly strengthen your boundaries and determination. This is a powerful launching pad for things you wish to set into motion. Step into this Moon confidently with valor. Use this moment wisely, as Mercury’s retrograde cycle begins August 12th, which will help us rework and re-strategize what we’re presently dealing with. This lunation can help you better align with your inner reservoir of strength, vitality, passion, and power. Direct this energy consciously toward things that best align with your authentic, spiritual path.”

New Moon Update 7-23-17

https://thepowerpath.com/moon-updates/new-moon-update-7-23-17/

“A Leo New Moon brings us in contact with our full radiance that emanates from our hearts. We are feeling our individual, sovereign selves to the fullest.  We want to be seen and appreciated for our magnificence and our generosity.  Creativity, expression, leadership, courage and joy are the codes that unlock the heart of Leo.  With this regal, fixed-fire power sign ruling the heart and the spine, draw down the power of the Sun’s rays into your heart to strengthen your vitality and enthusiasm and illuminate your self at your best…

We have only recently (May, 2017) entered the eighteen-month period of the North Node being in Leo and the South Node in Aquarius.  A powerful new trajectory of growth (North Node) and release (South Node) is unfolding in the next month and will shape our 18 month journey of lessons coming from the Leo/Aquarius axis: asserting our individuality from the mainstream, releasing our masks covering the authentic heart-felt self, letting ourselves be used as vessels for our divine essence and our purpose in this lifetime, radiating our confidence and delight in our power to create a magnificent life, courageously standing up for the kingdom and community we want to live in, releasing our inner child to play, create, express, and becoming champions of love and awakening

Heads up! Mercury in Virgo turns retrograde in the middle of the eclipse window on August 12.  August appears to be THE major portal of shift and change for the year with Mercury, Saturn and Uranus all changing direction (that intensifies their energy and influences) plus two eclipses.  Our security-needing habitual selves will feel the impact of letting more love and energy into our lives, but it’s clear, we have been preparing for this growth for many months.”

Ex-NASA Scientist Claims UFOs are Hiding in Saturn’s Rings

http://www.thedailysheeple.com/ex-nasa-scientist-claims-ufos-are-hiding-in-saturns-rings_072017

“A former NASA engineer at the Ames Research Center claims aliens are in our solar system and they are creating the beautiful rings around the planet Saturn. Dr. Norman Bergrun claims UFO’s and alien spacecraft are hiding among the rings of not only Saturn but other ringed planets as well.

Dr. Bergrun is not joking or trolling either. He’s serious, and according to the mainstream media described “conspiracy theory channel,” SecureTeam10, which obtained Bergrun’s comments, the alien ships have been here for some time. “Alien spacecraft are proliferating in our solar system and around these ringed planets,” Bergrun is quoted as saying on the video. Bergrun also noted the alien aircraft are circling other ringed-planets in the solar system, including Jupiter and Uranus…

This is not a new stance for Dr. Bergrun either. In 1986, the doctor wrote the book titled Ringmakers of Saturn. The book highlights that there are massive alien ships around Saturn (which Bergrun dubs “ring makers”), including alien spacecraft which have actually created some of the rings around the gas giant.

Bergrun’s stance has not faltered in the thirty years since writing his book. Could he be onto something? Or is he just another crazy conspiracy theorist?”

If Planets Were as Close as the Moon…

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2345679/Photographer-Ron-Miller-creates-incredible-pictures-look-like-planets-closer.html

“An astronomical artist has created eye-opening illustrations imagining what the night sky would look like if the moon was replaced by the other planets in the solar system.

Ron Miller, a former art director for NASA, used digital trickery to superimpose scale drawings of Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune over the same landscape, highlighting the sheer size of the planets.

The incredible drawings imagine each planet to be 233,812 miles from Earth – the same distance at which the moon orbits…

The diameter of Jupiter is 40 times that of the moon and it would dominate the night sky if it were in the same position.”
