We have two eclipses this month and both affect you strongly. Take it nice and easy a few days before and after each event.
The Lunar Eclipse of the 11th (in America it happens on the 10th) occurs in your own sign. Those of you born from August 9–13 will feel it most strongly, but all of you will be affected. It brings a redefinition of yourself – of your self-concept (how you think of yourself), your identity, your image and the look you present to the world. (These issues will come to the fore during the next eclipse too.) So it is time to define yourself for yourself. If you don’t, others will do it for you and that won’t be pleasant. If you haven’t been careful in dietary matters a physical detox could happen. This is not sickness, but the symptoms are often the same. The body throws off effete material. It is a cleansing of the body. This eclipse will bring shakeups in a charity or spiritual organization you’re involved in. There are dramas in the lives of gurus and guru-type figures. Often a person makes dramatic changes to their spiritual practice and teachings. Generally this is a ‘spiritual course correction’ – basically a healthy thing.
The Solar Eclipse of the 26th basically mirrors the Lunar Eclipse. Anything not completed by the Lunar Eclipse gets shaken up again. Events will happen that will force you to change your self-concept and image. Because this eclipse impacts on Neptune, the spiritual life is also affected. But this eclipse brings up more than the previous eclipse; it happens in your 8th house of regeneration and impacts (pretty directly) on the ruler of that house. So there can be encounters with death. The overwhelming majority are not going to physically die, but you will be dealing with death issues. Perhaps someone close to you dies. Perhaps you have a personal ‘close call’. Perhaps you read of some grisly deaths in the papers and your mind starts thinking about it. Often there are dreams of death. The cosmos is sending a message to you to get more serious about life and your life purpose – the purpose you were born to fulfil. Also, in many cases, it will help you to understand death better and to lose any fear of it.
The spouse, partner or current love interest is forced to make dramatic financial changes by this eclipse. Often they change investments, strategies and plans. The financial thinking has not been realistic and the eclipse brings it to the surface.
Health is still good this month, though you should take it easier around the eclipse periods.
