Mercury Retrograde in Leo
(a time to reflect, reassess, realize, release, re-set, resolve, rejoice)
July 27-Aug 19
During a Total Lunar Eclipse, red light is reflected on the moon, hence a Blood Moon.
A Lunar Eclipse is a full Moon that adds an extra dose of potential for shifting our perceptions. We become open to the new possibilities on the horizon by letting go of what no longer works in our lives. We find the benefits of change once we take the first steps into the positive potential that awaits us.
This Full Moon is in fixed air sign, Aquarius, ruled by Uranus, the planet of freedom.
The Sun’s life-giving Light is in it’s own fixed fire sign of Leo.
The North and South Nodes of the Moon play a significant role during this Eclipse.
The Sun shines in vibrant, creative, playful, magnanimous Leo. Leo energy is brave and passionate and invites us to express our heart’s desire, activating our creative power.
The Sun conjoins the North Node (activating our life purpose) in Leo.
Aquarius is idealistic, innovative, humanitarian and holds a vision of possibilities for a future of peace and freedom based on equality. The Moon conjoins the South Node (old tendencies to leave behind) in Aquarius. Mars (action) in Aquarius nearby creates a powerful triple line-up that is ready to activate those changes that are needed both personally and collectively that will align us with our vision. Staying calm, centered and clear at this time will go a long way in maintaining equanimity as those changes happen.
Midway between the Sun and Moon, Uranus is highlighted in fixed earthy Taurus, the sign ruled by Venus, the planet of Love.
On a global level, can we bravely choose to look at what needs to be released and changed for the sake of humanity’s well being? Is it possible we could consider following the Beauty Way of Love and Compassion?

Happy Full Moon!!
