The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017

The eclipse that occurred on August 21, 2017 was a solar eclipse in Leo that has been dubbed the “Great American Eclipse” due to the fact that the shadow of the eclipse (known as the “path of totality”) is falling exclusively upon the United States.

A solar eclipse is basically a ‘turbocharged’ New Moon. Since a New Moon symbolizes the seed of a new beginning, a solar eclipse indicates that a powerful change is either occurring within yourself and/or in the external circumstances of your life. Therefore, it presents a great opportunity for you to improve the quality of your life if you apply yourself.

This particular solar eclipse occurred in the royal sign of Leo signifying that a greater sense of personal empowerment in your life is awakening in some manner over the next 6 months. To make the most of this unique energy, it’s imperative to embrace the idea that you truly are a powerful individual that has unlimited potential.

Even if you have your doubts about this, that’s okay. Just be determined to change yourself for your own greater good. Make the time to delve deeply within yourself to strive to clearly see how you have allowed your progress in life to be limited in some manner.

This historic solar eclipse is beckoning you to be a light unto the world in your own unique way. Before that is even possible, however, you must learn to consistently be a beacon of light to yourself. A very useful exercise is to consistently visualize your own inner flame burning so brightly that it burns through the fear, self-doubt, and unworthiness that have eroded your faith in yourself.

See yourself in your mind’s eye truly thriving with your goals and growing to the point to where you can make a positive difference in the lives of others and/or the planet. Just remember that life is all too short so do yourself a favor and let go of the 'what if' fears in your life and instead focus upon the amazing possibilities that the future holds for you.

The house location of the eclipse and the aspects it makes to your astrology chart highlights the areas of your life where you will see new growth.
