Lunar Eclipses are a time for a ‘resetting’ of yourself. The moon represents your emotions, and when it eclipses, its resets and clears away any emotional baggage of the last six months. Each eclipse cycle occurs in opposite signs of the zodiac, and last for a couple of years. This is the third eclipse event in the Leo-Aquarius cycle. There are 5 more eclipses in this sign cycle, with the last event occurring Jan. 19, 2019.

Leo and Aquarius sit opposite of each other in the Zodiac. Leo is all about getting praised for the good job they do. They THRIVE off of that, like when a cat purrs when you pet them. Leo will continue to do well, and that praise means a lot to them. Aquarius, on the other hand, likes to pretend they don’t care about the praise, but they actually do. They secretly love it when others to notice the good job they do, but they like to pretend like they don’t care about it, or need it to be successful. But actually they do. They are just not as comfortable on stage BY THEMSELVES. When Aquarius shines, they love for others to shine as well.
The Full Moon Eclipse occurs Aug. 7, 2017. With the Sun in Leo, and the lunar eclipse occurring in Aquarius, this will force natives of these sun signs to the forefront and confront the limelight. This is harder for Aquarius because the sun is not naturally at home in this sign. Leo is perfectly fine in the limelight, because Leo is all about ‘me’. Aquarius is all about ‘we’, and therefore, the sun finds in difficult to shine in this sign. But this Lunar Eclipse will force those with Aquarius in their chart to focus on the ‘me’ instead of the ‘we’. This eclipse occurs in the zone of Image, & Appearance, personal goals, love & relationships, significant others, and contracts for Leo & Aquarius. Just remember, Aquarius, you really are as amazing as you think you are. Take a cue from Leo and talk positively about yourself more. As a result, other will talk about you in that same manner. Leo, take a cue from Aquarius, and highlight your community.
All signs will have to look at their close personal relationships, but for Aquarius and Leo especially, your romantic relationships will also be under scrutiny. People in these signs may see their romantic relationships taking another step to a next level. This is how the full moon eclipse will affect each sign:
Aries & Libra – Friends, groups & societies; your children and offspring (possibly pets); creativity; love affairs; what you’ll create or give life to.
Taurus & Scorpio – Job & career or vocation; the direction you are headed in life; home & family; your origins, place of birth, or where you came from.
Gemini & Sagittarius – Education & higher learning; siblings & neighbours; the way in which you communicate; travel & adventure, and the bigger picture in life and what brings significant meaning to your life and life purpose.
Cancer & Scorpio – Money(!), what bring value into your life; joint finances; SEX and everything you may share with others, the unconscious mind.
Leo & Aquarius – Image and appearance; personal goals; love & relationships, or significant others (ooo la la!); contracts (as in marriage?!)
Virgo & Pisces – Retreat, quite & solitude; spirituality and your idea of it; health & work & service; your sacrifices for the sake of others.
