Here’s what’s on the menu for our upcoming eclipse season. Get ready for change, as that is always, without fail, the nature of these celestial events. On the line up is the July 12th New Moon partial solar eclipse in Cancer, followed by the July 27th Full Moon total lunar eclipse in Aquarius, topped off with the August 11th New Moon in Leo partial solar eclipse.
If that sounds completely confusing, don’t worry. That’s what we are here to help you with. Our job is to take this complex astrology stuff and make it easy for you understand how it works and how to use it. This can feel like a chaotic time for those getting pushed around by the energy of the Sun and Moon without the astrology saddle on their cosmic horse.
The most important thing to know about the eclipse season, as we call it, is that everyone will experience change of some sort. Watch as the people around you move, change jobs, enter and exit relationships, and make announcements. Regardless of if you’re aware of the eclipses going on, you’ll be affected by them.
If you planted any seeds during the last eclipse season, the things you set in motion will mature now. Get excited to step into a new reality!
July 12th: New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse
According to Astrology King, the way the planets are lining up for this day can wreak havoc on our ability to believe in ourselves. We can combat that by knowing we may be down in the dumps mentally when it comes to thinking we can do anything well. In order not to bail on the goals you’ve been pursuing, laugh at how you feel and know “this too shall pass!”
However, it’s also a very positive event. As with all New Moons, this is the beginning of something. Set your sights high and create a plan to go forward after what you desire. You can expect this plan to bring something at the Full Moon lunar eclipse at the end of the month, as well as with the next eclipse season (January 5th and 20th in 2019).
Cancer is sensitive and a New Moon makes us feel like retreating, so please please please do not get caught up in your emotions today my friends! Take a bubble bath, apply essential oils, or practice a group meditation to stay calm within the eclipse energy. If unexpected things happen, don’t be surprised, just focus on gratitude and ride it out. Do not self-medicate your emotions with substances at this time, but find healthy outlets like exercise, massages, or simply comedy movies to keep your emotions balanced.
Ultimately, this marks a change in our approach…
July 27th: Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius
This will be extra positive for those who have Aquarius in their primal triad (Sun, Moon, or Rising sign). However, everyone will experience this Full Moon on steroids. A Full Moon always gives us more energy and increases the risk of losing our temper, which requires extra effort on our part to maintain our cool. You may feel a surge of emotions, so get ready and find a way to channel that energy into art or exercise, and not towards other people. A Full Moon allows you to receive gifts from the Universe if you’ve been manifesting something. An eclipse makes this even more potent. It also will help you let go of what isn’t working in your life. Get excited for things to arrive and avoid the people who trigger your angry side. If you feel like making an impulsive decision, just wait things out.

August 11th New Moon in Leo Partial Solar Eclipse
The final of the 3 eclipses is in Leo, which is ruled by the Sun. That means you have the power of the Sun behind the seeds you planted on the New Moon. By the time this day arrives, you’ll probably find you’ve already been feeling like you’ve been through the emotional wringer, so to speak. But if you’re using these energies, you’ve been transforming your old self into a more empowered cosmic wayfarer.
Be advised: Mercury goes retrograde in a week. Be patient over the next few weeks and stay your course without letting yourself get negative when you don’t see immediate results. Take your time in meditation and ask what is in the highest good for you to start and set the ball in motion. Expect some resolution on this to come next January!
Each eclipse season brings heightened energy, emotions, and big beginnings and endings. The drama level is turned up, so if you’re a real wizard, you’ll know how to take that energy and direct it into high vibration dreams instead of petty grievances. You may feel it’s the end of an era in your psyche, as if you’re shedding a layer of who you are, and stepping into a new version of life.
Ultimately, eclipse seasons bring transformations that we, as astrologically informed souls, can use to pursue our purpose with even more clarity and vigor. It can be helpful to share with people that change is afoot so they don’t feel like they’re caught in the middle of the twilight zone, where everything is happening at once. Here’s a list of the eclipse dates for your reference!
