Eclipse Horoscopes for August 21st - August 27th

Leo :: Leo Rising
Giraffes moving across the plains. This is an active time for you. It may be time to stick your neck out for a cause. You may need to increase your movement and fluidity. Giraffe as a spirit animal brings medicine of far-reaching vision and psychic ability. Keep searching for a higher purpose or cause that can keep you moving forward. You currently have an opportunity to learn about who you are and where you are going.  Look to your intuition to help you navigate as you move across the plains.

Virgo :: Virgo Rising
A pot of rich, hearty stew. In a stew, everything is mixed together. Have you been shouldering too much responsibility? Have you been taking it all on? It may be time to separate out what is your responsibility and what is someone else’s. Meanwhile, find ways to nourish yourself— physically, intellectually, socially and spiritually. This is your chance to connect with your higher self, strengthen your intuition, and let go of limiting unconscious beliefs. Take good care of yourself so that you can do this important work. You’ll need to feel rested and energized as you move into the more active season that lies ahead.

Libra :: Libra Rising
Handfuls of crystals. As you gather fragments of crystals you are symbolically gathering your sense of self. What is “self?” It may be time to ponder your image of your self, your concept of your higher self, and your vision for your future self. Another interpretation of crystals is that they can represent crystallized emotions or beliefs. As the New Moon occurs in your house of fixed beliefs, this may be an opportunity to reevaluate some of the concepts that you hold- maybe it’s time for new ideas or perspectives?

Scorpio :: Scorpio Rising
A spiky hat. What are the spikes on this hat? Protection, maybe. Possibly a way to make yourself seem bigger, taller, fiercer. This New Moon occurs in your area of career and vocation. Do you need to set new boundaries in your work? Do you need to see yourself as a bigger force in your career? There is a lot of action on deck for you when it comes to work and career. Get ready to move into it with activated warrior energy.

Sagittarius :: Sagittarius Rising
A game of “Hungry Hungry Hippos.” Remember that old board game “Hungry, Hungry Hippos?” The hippos pop forward to eat as many marbles as possible. They are ravenous. Where is your ravenous energy coming through right now? This is a time to reinvigorate how you search, hunt, and discover. Most of this devouring energy comes through in your search for a new philosophy and meaning. You may need to travel physically or explore mentally to create a new mission statement for your next season.

Capricorn :: Capricorn Rising
The drawbridge is pulled up. A definitive end is arriving in some area of your life. This may be an end to an inefficient system or a chance to let go of an outdated belief. It may be time to let go of a relationship, habit, or behavior. Whatever it is that must be let go of, consciously step toward this opportunity for release. You are moving through a cycle and you must let go so that you can begin again. Allow yourself to fully feel all of the feelings that arise when letting go.

Aquarius :: Aquarius Rising
Folding clothes. This New Moon occurs in your area of relationships. How can you pay more attention to caring for your relationships? Folding clothes is a routine thing, we all have a certain way we do it and it can be pretty much automatic. In your relationships, what do you do automatically? What are your unconscious actions and reactions? Are those working for you? Or is it time to reset some of these automations so that you can enjoy healthier relationships? Pay attention to every potential crease in your relationships and take some time to freshen any outdated behaviors.

Pisces :: Pisces Rising
Trying to catch tadpoles. Scrambling. Chasing. Lots of activity. Tadpoles are a symbol of transformation. As you stretch yourself to try to get a grasp on things, remember to be patient. You’ve got a lot on your plate right now and the new development will come at the exact right moment. In the meantime, take good care of body, mind, and spirit, so that you are prepared for the next phase.

Aries :: Aries Rising
Deep bowls of food in a buffet. Indulge. This New Moon offers you an opportunity to reassess how you experience joy. There is a banquet of experience available to you. You can sample different varieties of mirth, fun, creativity, and expression. Remain aware of pure, true, joy. Dip in to experience it. Why is this important? Because it feeds your soul.

Taurus :: Taurus Rising
Tobogganing down a hill. Building momentum thanks to a reduction in friction. What are the forces that are propelling you forward? And do you feel like it’s possible to steer in the right direction? We all build momentum in one direction or another. How is your current direction feeling for you? This New Moon occurs in your area of home and family. These are important forces in our lives. Sense of family can either stabilize or confuse. Sense of home can be grounding or constricting. As an adult, you get to decide how you attend to the direction and momentum that these foundational forces are creating.

Gemini :: Gemini Rising
The wingspan of a hawk. You are ready for a new span of conscious awareness. It’s time to learn. Seek meaning. Seek enlightenment. Look for meaning in the micro and the macro. Soar high above your everyday difficulties to get a glimpse of the bigger picture. Devote yourself to learning more about what the truth of your world is. It’s time to expand your mindset.

Cancer :: Cancer Rising
Pulling cards out of a file. It may be time to sort and organize things in your life. Are you clear about how you are getting your basic needs met— food, water, shelter? If you have gone through an agitated or traumatic period in your life, this symbol can show that it is extra important to feel settled and stabilized. Take stock of what resources are available. Get the basics sorted and taken care of.
