Total eclipse of the heart! The second of two rare, back-to-back Leo new moons arrives in the form of a total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017. This game-changing lunation ignites passion and transformation, helping us hone our authentic truth and step into the spotlight.
There's a lot of buzz going on about eclipse season this month, and with good reason. The August 21 total solar eclipse at the Leo new moon is MAJOR. It's the first total solar eclipse that will be visible coast-to-coast in North America since 1979, and for a brief window of time—2 minutes and 40 seconds, to be exact—the moon will block out the sun. Whether or not you're lucky enough to fall along the eclipse's path of totality, astrologically speaking, we’ll all feel the impact of both of these eclipses—no goggles required. This is the second installment of game-changing eclipses to fall in the same month; the Aquarius lunar (full moon) eclipse rocked the skies on August 7.
