Solar Eclipse: Astrological Houses
The Eclipse In Your Houses
On Monday, August 21st, the Solar Eclipse will be in Leo. It will be a time of reevaluation as this powerhouse begins to transit through our houses. I will assume that everyone knows how to check transits in their chart, but if you have any questions you can send me a message (I’ll be happy to assist but give me some time). At first, I was a bit apprehensive, but after reading and learning some interesting things, this will be an exciting time for us all since we will be able to pinpoint what aspects of our lives we need to work on to truly become better. Astrology should not be used as a way to see the future but a tool to help guide us through the present. If you are not aware of how this will impact your astrological house, here is a quick summary to guide you:
First House: Issues with self esteem? Self identity? These are all major points in the first because it is the House of Self. If you’ve been feeling out of place lately (with all the retrogrades clouding us and driving us bonkers) Leo will shine a light and will help you carve out the path to self discovery for the upcoming months.
Second House: Perhaps you’ve noticed a change in your bank statements. Money is leaving you faster than it’s flowing in. The Solar Eclipse will tell you that it is time to be more wary of how you manage your finances. Make sure to analyze what you’re doing and most importantly, how you can improve. Open up a savings account, if you have the money, seek a financial adviser or just read up on ways to be more financially literate.
Third House: Mercury is in Retrograde, so communication could be a bit…frustrating. If Leo is illuminating your third house, you have to see what it is YOU could be doing that is making exchanging information a bit tougher. When the much needed light of Leo shines on your house, you will receive a boost in creative energy, your thoughts will be fresh and you may even help people unclog their thought process.
Fourth House: Family drama? Not sure why you’re feeling like you’re trapped in a whirlwind of constant domestic arguments that just seem to never be resolved? Time to take a step back and consider what could be missing in the equation.
Fifth House: If your fifth house is being illuminated, prepare yourself for a much needed “fun” boost. Perhaps you’ve been feeling a bit melancholy because you have not been able to express yourself in the way you’ve wanted or you are caught up in a romance that doesn’t seem to be fulfilling, now is the time to make a choice that will help you pursue your happiness.
Sixth House: For those that will have Leo illuminate their Sixth House during this eclipse, it is time for you to think about yourself. This is the house of service but maybe you have been helping too many people to consider that not putting yourself first could be hurting you. Leo takes pride, it is the ruler and their self love could border on the narcissistic. Take some pointers and focus on you while also helping others. Make lists of things that need to be taken care of so you can be prepared for what’s to come.
Seventh House: This is the House of Partnerships, so it is obvious that you may be focusing on the status of your relationships whether intimate or friendly. Very much like the eleventh, you’ll discover who is there for you and who is not, giving you the courage to let go of things that are dead-weight. This is a time for growth and understanding and the eclipse will reveal the answers you’ve been craving for some time.
Eighth House: The time for change is happening. This house will have several convoluted questions from those that have this placement. Scorpio rules this house, which is represented by Sex, Death and Rebirth. This could be the ending of relationships accompanied with the rebirth of new ones. It could also be something involving the self. Perhaps old habits will end and you will evolve into something new.
Ninth House: You might feel anxiety over school, religion or your views of the chaotic world we live in. The Solar Eclipse will guide you and give you the confidence to challenge the norm. You will receive the clarity needed to focus and improve, especially if you’re a writer. Very much like the third house, the Eclipse will boost your communication skills and your thought process will flow clearer.
Tenth House: Leo will shine a light on your career and goals. Is your job satisfying you? Have you met your purpose? Do you crave for more? The Eclipse will shed a light on your progress or it might even provide a nice boost to your ambitions and drive. Tis your time to shine, best to grab on as you catapult to the stars.
Eleventh House: Time to reflect on those people that are truly there for you and the ones that want to see you crash. This Solar Eclipse will guide you to face those questions that have been troubling you for some time. Make sure to think things through and weigh the good with the bad regarding those people. Once you’ve made your choices, do not fret, the world is filled with plenty of people and you will definitely find better ones along the road.
Twelfth House: The House of Secrets and mysteries will definitely benefit from this Solar Eclipse. There will be a brief light in the dark road. The ethereal house questions, pushes and can take you to the brink of madness, but fear not. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Hold on to hope and make sure to remember that being optimistic doesn’t hurt, even if the twelfth house constantly pressures you. You can face your demons and win.
