In case you haven’t heard, we’re in the middle of some pretty explosive times in astrology. Not only are we experiencing the retrogrades of seven different planets, we’re also in the midst of a majorly transformative season of eclipses. It all began with a partial solar eclipse in Cancer on July 12, 2018, continued with a total lunar eclipse in Aquarius on July 27, 2018, and is now coming to a conclusive end with the partial solar eclipse in Leo on Aug. 11, 2018. I know this summer has been a lot to handle, but I promise we’re getting closer and closer to reaching the light at the end of this cosmic tunnel. Keep that in mind when I tell you that these zodiac signs will feel the most stress from the partial solar eclipse 2018: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. Now, before you start thinking that you’re in the clear, make sure you check your birth chart to see if your rising sign happens to be in any of these signs as well.
Because this partial solar eclipse occurs at 18 degrees Leo, a fixed sign by nature, this astrological event will affect fixed signs on a much deeper level than the others. Marking the beginning of a new era, an eclipse transforms and changes your world, sometimes leaving destruction in its wake. Although these experiences may be stressful, trust that the changes are in your best interests down the line.
TAURUS: YOU COULD EXPERIENCE CHAOS AT HOME
Since this partial solar eclipse lands like a cannon on your fourth house of home and family, you’ll likely undergo changes that have to do with the state of your home life, your relationship with your family, and your core values as a human being. While these changes can unfold through arguments, stressful situations, and grudge-holding, they don’t necessarily have to be a bad thing. Ultimately, you’re on your way to forging a more comfortable and regenerative world for yourself.
LEO: YOUR ENTIRE IDENTITY MAY BE CHALLENGED
Your image of the person you are, the way you identify as yourself, and the way you appear to others will come into question on this partial solar eclipse. Blasting through your first house of the self, you’re in the process of shedding old skin and forming a new life. You’re letting go of the person you have been and embracing the person you’re becoming. Unfortunately, you may feel pulled in two separate directions, unsure of where to go next. As long as you look deep inside your heart and make the decision that is is best for you, you will ultimately be much happier.
SCORPIO: YOUR CAREER COULD BE UP FOR DEBATE
When the partial solar eclipse stirs a whirlwind in your 10th house of career, you’ll find yourselves at a crossroads in your career path thus far. Maybe you’ll get a promotion, a raise, or an amazing new opportunity. However, this could also take shape as being terminated from your job, realizing you haven’t been following your dreams, or changing your mind about your career altogether. Your career is not only your reputation in the world, it’s also your livelihood, so changes in these departments could definitely come with a lot of frustration. However, in order to grow, you must overcome challenges.
AQUARIUS: A RELATIONSHIP COULD COME TO AN END
Pouring drama like boiling hot water onto your seventh house of partnerships, this partial solar eclipse has the power to make or break a relationship in your life. This could take form as a break-up, a friendship drifting apart, or saying goodbye to someone forever. However, it won’t necessarily be such a heart-wrenching affair. You could also form a new relationship with someone, fall in love, or form a connection that will serve you in the long run. Whatever it is, you can expect intensity and stress in your relationships, for their altering under the eye of the partial solar eclipse.
These 4 Zodiac Signs Will Feel the better effects…
Change is inevitable during eclipse season, and because change is rarely ever welcomed with open arms, this week will be rife with wildness, surprise, and unexpected chaos. However, not all zodiac signs will experience the drama on such an intense level. In fact, these zodiac signs will have the best partial solar eclipse of all: Libra, Sagittarius, Pisces, and Capricorn. If your birth chart indicates that your rising or sun sign falls under any of these zodiac signs, you should be able to survive this eclipse smelling like a rose.
Since a solar eclipse always takes place on a new moon, it essentially the amplifies the effects of our typical lunation. If a new moon announces the beginning of something new, a solar eclipse marks the beginning of a brand new era. This means that even if you happen to fall under any of these zodiac signs, you won’t be able to escape its cleansing and transformative effects altogether. However, these zodiac signs have other planetary influences (or a lack thereof) making this an easier time to get through.
LIBRA: YOU’RE TOO STEEPED IN ROMANCE TO CARE
Your ruling planet, Venus (which also happens to be the celestial body that rules over romance, aesthetic, luxury, and friendship), is in your sign and the cosmos have never felt more at home. You’re currently swirling through a world colored by love, affection, and butterflies in the stomach. Even though the partial solar eclipse will likely create some changes in your 11th house of community, perhaps bringing you closer to a new set of people or further away from your usual clique, how can you be stressed when you’re feeling so blessed?
SAGITTARIUS: YOU’RE HAVING TOO MUCH FUN TO BE STRESSED
When the sun is in your ninth house of adventure and philosophy, the astrological house that you rule over, you’re in such a period of positive growth, expansion, and knowledge-seeking that you’re probably flying too high to be touched by most of the drama on the partial solar eclipse. Since the partial solar eclipse also occurs in this house, you will likely undergo a period full of adventure and excitement. While you might encounter conflict and strife during this adventure, the beauty will more than likely outweigh the ugly.
PISCES: THE ECSTASY IN YOUR LIFE MAKES UP FOR IT
Being a mutable sign, you’re inherently escaping much of the cosmic drama on the partial solar eclipse. The fact that romantic and loving Venus will also be in your eighth house of sex and mystery makes this time way too interesting to let frustration get in the way of it all. You’re in a period of intense sexiness, both physically and spiritually, and you’re enjoying every minute of it. Although the partial solar eclipse will light a fire on your sixth house of productivity, motivating you to organize your messes and get back to work, there’s enough ecstasy in your world to keep it exciting.
CAPRICORN: YOU’RE ESCAPING A LOT OF THE COSMIC CHAOS
While you’re still undergoing a ton of stress from aggressive, carnal, and impatient Mars confusing you in your first house of the self through its retrograde, you’re still narrowly dodging much of the transformative mayhem on the partial solar eclipse. In other words, you’re not in the line of fire, but you’re not necessarily completely free in the clear either. With the partial solar eclipse occurring in your eighth house of metamorphosis, it is still forcing you through a period of subtle changes and growth. However, it still won’t be anywhere near as intense as it will be for many other zodiac signs.
