Solar Eclipse In Leo = Self-Powered Acceleration

Solar Eclipse In Leo Relaunch

The first try of NASA’s Sun Probe Rocket Launch got delayed because of a “last minute technical problem.” Go Mercury Retrograde.*

But our Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo launch is A-Ok. All systems are firing anew.  The days leading up to the Solar Eclipse – the finale of three over July and August – were a vortex of paranoia, self-doubt, memory, and desire.

Now, although we won’t be able to attain maximum velocity until after both Mercury and Mars are Direct, we are accelerating off our own energy.

Self-powered momentum may seem more unstable at the start of a mission but it is a hell of a lot more reliable.

More on the Solar Eclipse In Leo relaunch in the Daily Mystic email for Monday and, of course, the Horoscopes.

Thoughts?

* My Mercury Retrograde has turned my iPhone spell-checker feral. Thanks to this, I sent texts saying “this is your Fat…” instead of “Fate.” And “Chiffon” for “Chiron.”

I think that I just aborted my ‘relaunch’. I tripped over a low chain link fence and went full body slam down into the dust. My knee connected with a rock and I am now sporting a lovely set of stitches, as well as the general air of someone whose body went through a tumble dryer with said rocks. It was certainly a dramatic entrance though! Viva La Leo…

Incense

Oh no! I’m sorry, that sounds SO painful. Heal soon!

As an Aqua Sun and Merc, I’m definitely ready for this Merc and Mars retro to be over! I have been applying for more jobs lately, feeling more motivated than usual, and am strongly feeling ready to move forward, whatever/wherever that may be! Getting more and more clear on wanting to leave this city. I went canoeing for the first time in decades this past weekend, and it was such a joyful, spiritual experience, and made my heart open wide! I’m grateful for my Aqua Moon, Venus/Mars Leo, partner for sorting out that trip!

Chinagirl

re: spellchecker lmao that is so true!!! Mine went nuts typing what it wants and sometimes complete gibberish. I was losing my cool with it and it is more or less better now but still. It’s never been this crazy lol

Also, Mars just entered Cap, correct? I am a natal Mars in Cap person, is this going to be good for me, maybe help relive this Mars retro or intensify it?

A'NLEIFR

The night of the eclipse I burned sage around my house and took a rather long salt bath.

A'NLEIFR

I know I hate that it is Mars retro but I LOVE seeing Mars in the night sky right now so close to earth and so bright and reddish-orange. I am new to astrology and it seems the past several months (Dec-Now) have all been a whirlwind of craziness with all the eclipses, retrogrades etc etc. Is it always this turbulent or have these past few months been an anomaly?

Skarab

I love seeing the red planet too – in the city i’m in it’s about the only luminary one can see (which is a bit ominous too), that’s how polluted it is. But if you like watching the night sky, right NOW is the best time to haul yourself off to somewhere dark and watch the Perseid Meteor Shower – apparently peaking on the night/morning of 13th. You have to get your eyes adjusted to the dark about 15-20 minutes before you might see the show. Watched it last night – magic.

listening to Rihanna and reverting to my new strategy of 98% sass on dating sites, see what happens. I was really slow to reply (not sure why) to the Actually Interesting one and he has disappeared so that’s a bit 🙁 how do you distinguish between lazy, and knowing that you’re dipping a bit too far into the well of slowly-replenishing personal mojo so you pull back, and “this actually isn’t for me”? = actual question. also mystic thank you for the daily mystic for Tues, was slipping into the rabbit hole but hanging on for all I could. this… Read more »

the image for this post made me laugh. It really does feel like me right now. Hahahaha. abs and all! I have a large suitcase packed and waiting to be zipped shut. I have the flight on stand by and I await the go go go. Once that hand releases me I will be there gone. Excited to say the least.

Skarab

Yes, to everything from the “vortex of paranoia, self-doubt, memory, and desire” that has marked this eclipse season, to “accelerating off our own energy”. I wanted something special to do for this last eclipse. I wanted the challenge to overcome this ennui that had set in & I wanted to set an intention. I also felt i needed to be in a special place in nature. My partner knew exactly where we should go – but it meant driving for 5 hrs and then hiking almost to 2,7000m. Well it was a hard slog to the mountain summit, what with… Read more »

Sam

This sounds Super Amazing and very mars-uranus also. Insane outdoors jaunts are a wonderful way to transmute and transform the energy of the moment.

Skarab

You said it Pi.

Also, can’t help thinking when experiencing journeys & places like this, that if the greedy a*seholes that run/ruin this planet had just one of these experiences, perhaps we wouldn’t have the eco problems we have. Then the cynic in me thinks that they’d probably buy the mountain, build an exclusive resort & helicopter themselves in.

LotusFlower

So amazing! I feel nourished just reading it, thank you for sharing ! “All i could do was feel the deepest reverence & love for this beautiful planet, and just give thanks” – the deepest, most revolutionary intention of all, methinks <3

Skarab

Aww …. You just made me cry… Thank you LotusFlower. xxx

firecloud

Lol, “fat” and “chiffon”.

Hughiedog

I’ve missed a memo, I know – so can I ask one of you wonderful teamsters what energy we were running on before the eclipse, if we’re self energising – self empowering – now, please?

Sam

Saturn grind? also our selves but less of it? now is boosted? more motivational love from cosmos?

Hughiedog

Got it. Thanks so much!

Pegasus

Just love the new layout of site, so smart and elegant.

Would like to be able to turn spell check off as it is so annoying. It doubts you and challenges you, like you don’t know how to spell or the context you want. Just discovered how to use Spotify (no judgment please 🙂 on iPhone and download it to my MacAir, plug it into sneakers and plug the earphones into the speakers after days of angst. This is totes joyous for me as thought i was going to have to buy CD player to get the exact music i wanted after my old MacBook spat the dummy with 7 days… Read more »

this is going to sound so lame but i secretly love researching big spends, cap moon needs certainty that my dollars are working as hard as poss factory seconds stores are pretty good. you can also call your cool local washing machine repair guy to get their opinion on what they rate the highest … after all they’re the ones who fix ém.. I’m a latecomer to spotify too, don’t feel too bad 😉 best thing is i can link my phone alarm to their playlists. i bought a clock radio but it’s horrible for the alarm so apps and… Read more »

Yaaaas, moony chin chin to big purchase research! It feels like foreplay to me with myself…but that could also be because my last purchase was a new bed… I’ve also taken up quietly telling myself aloud that I need something – and knowing that it’s not so much a reminder to go out the next chance I have to get the thing, but that on my day to day travels it’s going to simply show itself to me or I will suddenly know where I have to go. This has been turning out to be both fun and satisfying for… Read more »

Also just to clarify ahah I also have Cap moon…

Hi Pegasus,
Funny, I am having same issue with my MacBook dying on me!
Retrieval of data depends on what is wrong. If it’s the logic board, you can retrieve. If it’s the hard drive, no dice.
If you have an Apple store handy, you can make an appointment at the Genius Bar and they can diagnose it for you. If not, perhaps a local Mac repair shop?
It might also be possible to google diagnosing it yourself. Like you said, these things are often less complex than they seem.
Good luck!

Sam

I deleted my very very long comment..

Skarab

That’s a shame … I deleted my very very long comment by accident then I re-wrote it but now I’m bored with it & am debating whether to post it or not.

Sam

if it was your mountain post, that was obv totally worth it

Pegasus

I didn’t…lol. Mine just a a morning waffle before analysing my dreams.

Skarab

I love your morning waffles.

Sam

Hahahah *cries*

Skarab

😛

emg

don’t Pi. Don’t ever delete your long comments or if you do do not tell us. Now I wonder what words of wisdom and laughable lines I have missed. Boo!

Sam

you didn’t miss much, I was grizzlng about about the neptunian libran virgo boss and his impact (my complicity) on my 2nd – 8th house axis right now… I deleted it as I was trying to start in a good frame of mind at work #Monday but when I got there, everyone else looked dead inside and boss was speaking with the tone of someone who’d just received a hand grenade in their inbox. maybe the eclipse got them, maybe I missed the memo, either way i’ll see what tomorrow brings..

emg

You have a Virgo Libran boss ?!?! How do you cope ? When I was in for interview, I’d have run as fast as I could in the opposite direction. On the 12 -6 access ?!!? I can’t think why the universe ever linked up Pisces with Virgo. Cruel. So cruel.

bird

I’m Pisces sun Leo ascendant with Virgo sun Libra ascendant husband. He’s SO kind, tolerant, patient, loyal and level-headed. He celebrates my mysticism and intuition and all things Pisces, and has never, ever criticised or micro-managed me. Seven years in, 12-6 is working for us, but we have other supportive aspects between us.

Sam

I agree bird (my autocorrect suggests a pretty bird emoji for your name, which I love)
So after a closer look at his chat, that was when I noticed a Neptune sq sun which throws a cat among the pigeons. I greatly appreciate his free range intellect and humanity. It is his mostly approach to money that causes me a lot of stress and confusion.

emg

I had a Virgo sun husband, and watched a fabulous Pisces sun marry a Virgo sun woman. It just didn’t work for either of us. As you can tell I’m still smarting from it. For us both it lacked that depth and connection and freedom. There was no soul connection or free form bliss that comes with water I suppose. Intellect yes but dry. I think one of the lines that did for me was ‘when you die you die. That’s it there is nothing else’. So if you think that surely you make the most of each day? No… Read more »

Sam

Yeah, I do wonderful friendships with virgo suns but a virgo sign chart emphasis does not historically function very well with me.

Jokerman

So how do you explain your love for me with my Virgo Stellium???

Jokerman

My (alleged) mother and my (arsehole) father are 18th March and 14th Sept.
And that was shit. My mother was WITH another bloke, not my father, on my father’s and mother’s wedding night.
I told you l was born on probation.

bird

That sounds pretty hard, emg. I’m sorry. Whingers and whiners SUCK to live with. My Pisces sun ex-husband was like that. Now there’s a shitty combo! Two Pisces suns. Had to do it twice before I learnt. My Virgo said a similar thing to me about life after death, but he said if he saw evidence he’d believe. So, the universe said “okay” and sent us a ghost. A child. In our bedroom. In the middle of the night. Deny that, mofo! Anyway, my husband is also a sceptic, but an open-minded one, with a longing and admiration for mysticism… Read more »

bird

Love the idea of a pretty bird emoji! Yes, I hear you. My husband describes himself as having been scrupulously honest and humane as a young man, but he’s grown more cynical as the years have passed and life has thrown some painful experiences at him. At times his attitude to money and business have been at odds with mine. I have witnessed, during this eclipse season, a huge softening in him and he’s talking about leaving the industry he works in, in favour of a more Uranus in Taurus business venture. Heart centred, peaceful and stabilising.

Jokerman

It worked for Savage Garden

Sam

Oh wow that bad for you huh? Argh haha

MissDee

All I know I am slowly progressing into my vacation. As Virgo rising I’ll be experiencing most of my vacation with Mercury Retro and then direct in my 12th and I must say I am liking it.
Virgo season is gonna push me back into efficiency mode when falls will unfold in September so I welcome this Relaxed vibe and prep for the Uranus in Taurus holyday bit that starts tomorrow.

Watersnake

“Self powered” – YES! Snowed on eclipse night and the dawn was spectacular looking across the white sparkling valley. Then spent the day with musician friends and we jammed and danced and created new possibilities for our lives. It was a joyful tribe vibe complete with Maori elder, teenagers and young kids. Played ukeleles, shamanic drum and indigenous wind instrument and sang our hearts open. Post eclipse – tick to generating the life we want to live! https://www.dropbox.com/s/lbgp4uxlx40qm6t/2018-08-12%2015.05.11.mov?dl=0

That’s lovely.

Ah the community spirit and joy radiates from this. I played it out loud here outdoors in the country and the birds seemed to be chirping along! Beautiful people x

alchemy-salt

My god, I am glad this eclipse is over. I honestly felt like I was regressing to my teenage self for half of it. Years of mental progress disintegrating before my eyes.

scorpiodawn

i was sooooo bored yesterday. just bored.
then it was car ival night for my town last nite…i made the mistake of going out…felt like the only sober person in the whole world…and my re/ship is in trouble AGAIN…thank god its the morning, onward and upward….

BLISS WITCH

a vortex of paranoia, self-doubt, memory, and desire.

ACCURATE

KellyH

This eclipse was MONSTROUS. My peri menopause problems went overboard, I felt completely hijacked by my biology, I hated on all the doctors and medical stuff because it left me uninformed, helpless and with no direction to go in..and my belief in myself plummeted to lows I haven’t had in years. The sun came out literally and figuratively yesterday and I feel better. Ready to start kicking again. I do not want to experience that again. Ooh and mercury retrograde. Took a nice selfie of me which I rarely do, glammed up a bit for a long overdue evening out… Read more »

I feel like Leo can also be Solar-powered from time to time, as a backup. You know.

Hughiedog

out of fossil fuel age, and into Solar age – so that makes sense.

JacQui

Yep to the auto correct, warning lights on car “bonnet not closed” that eff ed cted (see!) effected windscreen wipers -google fixxed that in 2 minutes after being paranoid for a week. Just heard of previous relieving job going real and live end of August. Giddy up

Jokerman

My phone is doing that to me lots

Incense

Oh. My. God. Never occurred to me that the sudden CHECK TIRE PRESSURE OMG message my car threw at me during a massive thunderstorm Friday evening rush might have been related to all this.

I inflated the tires back up to where they should be Saturday morning, even though none were over 2 psi off. Checked the owners manual, played around with the car’s maintenance info … turned out it was a brief malfunction. Nothing wrong with the tires. Just Mercury Retrograde.

Chrysalis

Looking forward to my Chiffon return.

Sam

OMG So I really like the idea of spell-replacing all of the planets with their keyword or something that twists it poetically so that we can approach it more easily or readily. Chiffon being soft, gauzy, beautiful, flowing, adding a wash of colour and movement to the acute awareness of the self-cosmos nexus. Saturn could be Work. I have Work in Leo. Work in my second house. Work transiting my 7th house. Mars could be March. March in aquarius. March retrograde. Work square march. (I like that they can be verbs too for extra flexibility.) Pluto could be power, I… Read more »

Chrysalis

This, my friend, is genius. Absolute genius. I have Work in my 7th house (for this entire lifetime), and transiting Work in my 5th. LOL! xx

Pi

it kind of makes it more… do-able?

PlutoMoon

Love this, Pi. Venus could be Beauty, Neptune could be Dreams, Moon could be the Heart, Jupiter Joy, Uranus Originality, Sun, the Self. We could even take it a step further and call trines “in league with”, squares “challenges”, conjunctions “with”. Beauty was recently with my Power and now is with my Self and my MC, being challenged by Work but in league with March. Dreams are in league with Joy and it’s magical.

Pi

aahhhh yes this is awesome thank you! I hit a wall with the rest of them…

Pi

I ohh wait I want to work on this. I renamed mars as force, and called sextile cooperate… I have beauty cooperating with force, but challenging my heart. Joy is in league with my heart, and challenged by force. My originality is challenged by work? but Dreams, work, and my public image (MC) are all in league with each other. at the same time, force is with my heart right now. Soon, joy will be in league with my self. My public image will be challenged by transiting work in my 7th.. ok maybe I stop there. that was interesting.… Read more »

Some Greek bloke, called Plato, is going to visit me in 190 years.

I think Pluto is more Bataille than Plato, but I’ll allow it

imagine you in 190 years time though , dreaming of this current life, and wondering what the heck that was all about. but it’s you, sending a message to future you, with wisdom from this life.
