Eclipse season continues this month with a partial solar eclipse on 11 August.
A large number of planets and asteroids are retrograde or stationary at this New Moon. In fact the only ones moving direct are Jupiter, Venus, Ceres, Pallas Athena and Juno. Despite this being a New Moon and therefore a time for fresh starts and implementation, the large number of retrograde planets suggests that we should think carefully before we jump into new creative ventures.
This partial solar eclipse is linked to eclipses in 1999 and 2000. You may find that memories from these years resurface now, or have new meaning. Fresh insights into past events often emerge at eclipses. They are an opportunity to see things in a new light.
This is a powerful Supermoon too. Though not visible, the Moon reaches perigee today and is therefore highly emotive. Recent volcanic and earthquake activity could continue this weekend under this Supermoon.

The Leo emphasis highlights our creative endeavours, but it’s worth spending time thinking things through carefully at this eclipse. SD Mars close to the south node will probably want to dive in head first, but with so many retrograde planets we are at an important intersection where the road ahead is rather uncertain. Delays can be blessings in disguise. Be patient. This is a great New Moon for reassessing our options and planning ahead.
