The Eclipses Are Coming!
They are as follows:
- Partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer 11:01pm EST on July 12th
- Total Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius 4:21pm EST on July 27th
- Partial Solar Eclipse in Leo 5:46 am EST on August 11th
Eclipses bring incredible change with more surprises, opportunities, learning experiences and transformations.
If you aren’t ready to change, change will still happen, it simply won’t be as smooth as it could be. Because, if we don’t choose change, change chooses us, and it makes it even more challenging to do! Especially right now, with the energies we are experiencing. It is truly time to embrace your inner truth and shine it to the world.
Eclipses are also about going within to find what is “eclipsed” or hidden in your life to allow it to be realized and released.
Eclipses always bring about powerful energy and when used properly brings blessings, sometimes in disguise, but they will eventually be revealed. The numerology aspects of the two months bring even more information to ponder in your life.
July is a 7 month in numerology. 7 symbolizes research, wisdom, deep spirituality and inner truths. This entire year is all about Manifestation and Truth, which is discussed in one of my previous blogs. Number 7 asks us to really dig deep, understand our beliefs, why we have them and if they are really our truth or not.
Essentially, 7 represents our Spiritual Journey, our personal Quest to find our soul’s purpose through our inner truth and soul authenticity. You may be working somewhere, and it’s been very good, yet Spirit wants you to now do something different or MORE. Be open and aware of what opportunities are popping up for you, do more research, go within and uncover what feels right to you. In other words, what is your inner truth about the opportunity?
With the first partial solar eclipse in Cancer, the themes of intuition and family are enhanced.
The Sun is about masculine characteristics, shining your light and the more material parts of the world. Cancer is deeply intuitive, emotional, imaginative, generous, family- and home-oriented, and sensitive, which are all feminine aspects, plus Cancers have a tendency to draw inward. We are being provided a time to go deeper within ourselves, connect more strongly with our intuition, thus our souls, and realize more of our own truths to help us manifest our dreams through our soul purpose and bring them to light in the material world.
All three of these eclipses can change our understanding of where we were at the beginning of the year, and where we are headed the second half.
This year, 2018, is also a 2 year, which is about relationships of all kinds. Cancer is about family. This eclipse can hit your home and your family area, as well, and asks you to look at what you like and dislike about these areas of your life, while creating change for you in some way. The changes will be in line with whether (or not) you are following your soul path, healing past issues and living your truth. This is a very spiritual time to work with the energies, allowing you to transform into your most brilliant butterfly.
It is important to note the Saturn Return (learn more in the article mentioned above) and Saturn is currently retrograde. All retrogrades ask us to rethink, redo, revise, refresh, recharge, etc. Saturn is the planet of lessons, career, and leadership, plus is the teacher and is Karma (Karma just like the number 8!). Saturn asks us to learn our lesson and increases the need to uncover, reveal and live your soul Truth.
Our second July eclipse is a partial lunar in Aquarius.
Lunar energy affects our feelings and intuition, our feminine side. Aquarians tend to be free thinkers and open-minded. They like to be different, are very truthful, independent, love learning and are diverse in their thinking, while not worrying about what others think of them. Aquarians love to come to their own conclusions of their own truth and how they act is their own true heart and soul desire. It’s time to be your independent, truthful self, connecting deeper to your intuition to live your authenticity. Go within to determine whether you are being independent, or are you following what society is telling you should be doing? Are you being true to you? Are others being true to you? How do you need to think or act differently in your life? What old beliefs and thoughts do you need to release to allow new ones?
August is in numerology is an 8, which is infinite possibilities, the flow of abundance and balance. Like Saturn, 8 is about Karma. It’s about balancing both the human world with the spiritual world, which is finding your true soul purpose. Ask yourself what is out of balance in your life? What lessons do I need to learn or have learned and now need to integrate more fully? Am I flowing in the right direction? What do I need to revise, renew, refresh, redo, etc. with the Saturn Retrograde and 8-month? Am I helping or hindering my soul abundance? Am I living my Truth? Am I doing what I love to do?
Then our third eclipse hits in August and is a partial solar in Leo.
Leo the Lion is heart-centered and likes to lead and be in the spotlight. Leo brings courage, honesty, strength, kindness, generosity, and loyalty. Leo is ruled by the sun, so this is a potent energy which will amplify the hidden by shining a very bright light upon it. This is double the sun-light energy! Leo and the sun are giving us permission to express and LIVE our authenticity, which allows us to SHINE in all aspects of our lives. And, if you aren’t, it’s time to figure out why and CHANGE! The energies are pushing you to live your dreams, your soul purpose, your truth, and the last half of the year is where the movement towards it can happen.
Are you seeing the theme of Truth? Are you seeing how all of these energies are interwoven to help you be your authentic self? Are you seeing how you are being asked to be the one to step forward and shine your light? Are you ready for these power-packed eclipses, which can quite literally completely change your life? The best way to deal with these energies is to allow them to flow with you, through you, and for you. Be very aware of what is happening, what opportunities are being presented in all areas of life, how people are acting and reacting, how you feel about home and family, and what you are discovering about you and your beliefs, then act!
Take time to yourself, meditate, walk in nature and treat yourself like the brilliant, divine soul you already are, allowing others to see it. Be YOU.

I love to learn, research, and use the astrological and numerology energies in my life, and know it works! I use my personal natal chart and solar returns each year, in conjunction with my connection to my soul and Divine Core, my guides and guardians, and my own energy work.
