The coming weeks are powerful for taking charge of your home life, attention to matters of security and safety, connecting with family and your own emotions.

There can be the need or desire to put your personal life first now, and changes may be afoot. You’re in an excellent position to start fresh and take charge.
Do keep in mind that Mars remains retrograde until late August, so try to focus on work in progress instead of taking on major new directions or projects.

You may be putting in a lot of extra hours, and you deserve a break! This can be a good time for a resolution to take more downtime or to spend extra care and energy on making your domestic world run smoothly.
This Solar Eclipse launches a favorable cycle in which to turn over a new leaf with your studies, communications, and connections, dear Taurus. It’s a great time to learn something new, make contacts, and use the power of communications to move your goals forward. In the coming weeks and even months, you are likely to find new opportunities for learning and communicating or avenues for self-expression. In some cases, this is about transportation and could be prompted by an event that forces the issue!
Developing mental rapport with others, sharing ideas, and reaching out or pouring energies into your interests and studies can be in current focus and favorable. There may be new ways of getting around or connecting that open doors for you.

News can come that steers you in a new direction. You might suddenly want to take a course or begin a new project, for example.
Keep in mind that Mars remains retrograde until August 27th, and brand new beginnings are not yet advised, but the effort you put into works in progress can be quite rewarding now.
Transits occurring at the time of the eclipse have more staying power than usual since they are tied in with the eclipse energy. Venus-Uranus is especially helpful for you, not only because Uranus is in your sign, but also because Venus is your planetary ruler. The inspiration to make changes can come from a budding romance or creative project that excites you. The Sun-Pluto opposition suggests that it may be difficult to let go of a particular line of thought. You may need to work harder at things you’re not thrilled about just for now so that you can secure a better future. Or, you might find that letting go of an ongoing argument or consuming project just for now helps clear your head for a brand new beginning.
This Solar Eclipse happens in your resources sector, dear Gemini, and you may be making important decisions in the coming weeks related to personal finances, business, and practical affairs. On another level, this is a time for establishing yourself and discovering and developing your natural talents and personal resources. Your financial status, income, or arrangements related to security and comfort are subject to improvements, changes, and new beginnings. Setting realistic money goals, as well as formulating such things as budgets and other sensible financial planning projects, are especially favored during this time. You might also be discovering ways to increase your income or your earning potential.
It’s a beautiful time for earthy, tactile, and comforting activities that help you to feel more grounded and connected. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to a lifestyle or financial habits that haven’t been serving you well, this is a time when changes become necessary. New beginnings are in order! This eclipse gives you a fantastic push towards taking better care of your money and resources. Issues of being treated well and with respect can also come into play. It’s undoubtedly a robust period for resolving problems with income, spending, and saving.
Mars remains retrograde until August 27th. With this in mind, brand new beginnings may not be ideal. However, you can make a fresh start with works in progress with success now.
Occurring at the time of — and imprinted into the energies of — this eclipse is a Venus-Uranus trine that favors creative problem-solving in your domestic life or related to your inner world. Getting rid of clutter in your home or on an emotional level figuratively speaking can be especially helpful for improving your outlook, as you can feel lighter and freer. A Sun-Pluto opposition also ties in with the energies of the eclipse, suggesting some struggle a partner or gaining the support you feel you need. While relationships or financial matters may feel loaded or intense now, this is a time for releasing yourself from problems or burdens or making a plan to do so going forward. You might be able to increase your income or pour more energy and confidence into your talents and projects.
The Solar Eclipse occurring today is in your sign, dear Cancer, and it helps pave the way towards significant individual changes in the coming weeks and even months. This is a time for reinventing yourself in some personal way, such as with a new look or manner of expressing and presenting yourself. Think about how you present yourself to others and greet the world, focus on changing personal habits in such a way as to improve your confidence, and concentrate on putting your best foot forward, as this is a time when you will get noticed and make a powerful impression on others.
Circumstances can prompt a rethinking of your general attitude towards new beginnings, bravery, your role as a leader, your independence, and the ways you instinctively defend yourself. This is a time when you can be braver and enjoy new experiences. There can be a tendency to dig in your heels and display your independence now, which may be necessary for personal growth, but care should be taken to stay true to yourself in the process. Get in touch with what you genuinely want, envision it, and go for it, but wait for the dust to settle before going all in. Keep in mind that you can feel a little wiped out around the time of the eclipse before energy rebuilds. This is a critical time for personal goals, revisions, new beginnings, and makeovers (physical and otherwise).
Do keep in mind that Mars remains retrograde until August 27th, so slowing down or focusing on projects already underway makes sense for the time being.
A Venus-Uranus aspect occurs at the same time as the eclipse, acting as an imprint and effectively extending its influence for weeks and even months ahead. Fortunately, it’s a fabulous aspect for finding creative release and inspiration through friends, studies, personal interests, and projects. A Sun-Pluto opposition influence is also tied to the eclipse as well and suggests some struggles with a partner or with others which ultimately motivate you to begin anew. This is a time for building your confidence and independence. Look for ways to reclaim personal power by first determining where you’re giving it away. This will help clear the decks from brand new beginnings. You’re learning you can stand on your own two feet, and quite impressively, at that!
This Solar Eclipse launches a period of review, letting go, and recharging your spiritual or emotional batteries, dear Leo. This is a time for releasing, purging, and healing. This eclipse encourages you to put certain outdated ventures or situations behind you. It may be a time of withdrawal and retreat in a social sense, of soul-searching, and the seeking out of emotional peace of mind. You’re due for extra time to yourself, or with yourself! If you’ve been neglecting your psychic, spiritual, or emotional needs, then circumstances can push you to pay attention to your inner world now.
There can be flooding of energies now which can be a little disorienting, but going forward, you’ll get a stronger sense of what changes need to be made. If you require solitude, then you’ll find ways to get it. If there have been toxic connections to your past, then you’ll be figuring out how to break ties. If you’ve been giving of yourself too much to your own detriment, this is a time for more dedicated attention to your emotional and spiritual needs.
Do keep in mind that Mars remains retrograde until August 27th, so taking things slowly or putting more effort into works in progress makes sense until then.
A Venus-Uranus aspect occurring at the same time imprints its energies on the eclipse and is thus longer-lasting than usual. You have the ability to take a look at what needs to be improved or changed and to make adjustments with fewer regrets. Willingness to take a new feeling, method, idea, or interest related to money, business, or work for a spin can benefit you greatly. You could be updating technology or methods in order to improve your life, and you’re attracted to new or different products and solutions to problems, which can help clear the path to more downtime. The Sun opposing Pluto, on the other hand, suggests that you may need to cut back if you’ve been micromanaging your life in the areas of health and work. Work on your fear of missing out so that you can take more time to recuperate and refresh yourself both physically and mentally.
This Solar Eclipse places a strong focus on making contacts and reaching out to others, dear Virgo, in both a social and professional sense, over the coming weeks and even months. Events and circumstances are such that they serve to clear the path for new beginnings, mainly related to how you fit in with friends and the community. You become more acutely aware of your position in life within the context of the group, rather than through self-centered focus. Goals that involve networking, making connections with others, joining or strengthening ties in a group project or activity, and nurturing goodwill are the focus during this cycle that begins today. Some level of drama may be present now, as the eclipse can serve to shake up your social life to pave the way for meaningful changes. In some cases, friends enter or leave your life during this period.
This is an excellent time to reflect on how you’d like to steer your life in the coming weeks, particularly concerning your “place” in the social side of your life. This period favors formulating goals that have to do with future, long-term happiness, or a sense of mission or purpose, aligning yourself with important causes. This can be a crucial time for delegating, collaborating or calling on a team/help so that you have more time to focus on honing your craft or getting time for yourself.
Do keep in mind that Mars is retrograde and will remain retrograde until August 27th, suggesting that it’s not an ideal time for brand new beginnings. However, it’s excellent for returning to past projects, friends, and pastimes with increased vigor.
A Venus-Uranus aspect occurring around the time of the eclipse colors the energies of this entire period. Fortunately for you, Venus is in your sign, and this is fresh and progressive energy. You’re turning heads! People enjoy your company even more than usual and they admire your original ideas. Also imprinted onto the eclipse is a Sun-Pluto opposition suggests that you may be wrestling with overseeing or over-managing one area of life that often keeps you away from enjoying yourself in other areas. In order to benefit from the eclipse’s energy for starting fresh in your social life, you may need to let go of some of your attention to a certain project or relationship that is consuming an unhealthy amount of your time and energy. For some of you, this may be about letting others help you if you are overwhelmed.
This Solar Eclipse brings heightened awareness and sensitivity to your standing in society and your professional goals, dear Libra, as it happens in the professional or public sector of your solar chart. There can be feelings of excitement or uneasiness, depending on how you handle change, surrounding career, reputation, and life path matters now. Going forward, it will be a good time for developing new business plans and goals. A sense of renewal and reinvigoration regarding your career goals is on the horizon. Changes in work, focus, life direction, bosses, authority figures, reputation, or your own authority and influence can occur now and in the coming few months. It’s a time to focus on the elements of your personality that you are projecting in your career or to society, with an eye on improvement. Significant shifts in how others see you can occur now.
You are more actively aware of the need to bring added structure or rules into your life, or you might decide you need to improve your performance and general practices so that you can better follow certain rules. This is a phase in which you are exceptionally busy with career or public responsibilities. However, it’s also a time for balancing home and career. Drama or commotion stirred now paves the way for new approaches and new beginnings. A fresh approach is encouraged now, but it’s important to be very mindful of what worked for you in the past.
Mars is retrograde, however, making it wise to focus more on works in progress than it is for brand-new ventures.
A Venus-Uranus-Saturn configuration occurs around the same time as the eclipse and colors the energies of this period. This suggests that behind-the-scenes support or work can be rewarding now, boosting your career efforts. You see the value of traditions and routine more than usual, but you’re also open to new ideas — a perfect combination! Feeling more confident in yourself from the inside out and in your home and personal life allows you more freedom to explore and develop your career or put more effort towards achieving your goals. A Sun-Pluto opposition is also imprinted on the eclipse energy, and it makes sense that you work on releasing your fears of branching out so that you can achieve your goals wholeheartedly. Identify where you’ve been overly attached, particularly around the home and with loved ones, and consider ways to let go of unnecessary burdens in your life.
This Solar Eclipse falls in the sector of your solar chart that rules your spirit to grow, explore, and expand beyond the “regular” experiences in your life, dear Scorpio. This can bring invigorating events into your life that serve to nudge you out of your usual routine. You are making a break from the past in some manner, which will help clear the path for future growth and development. There may be opportunities to broaden your horizons through travel, education, life experience, or adventure. There can be emerging opportunities to publish or promote your work, share your ideas, and enjoy mind-expanding experiences. Meeting important people through these endeavors is possible.
Transportation issues can also be in focus, with new avenues opening up for getting out and about. This eclipse might also bring some of you into contact with lawyers, professors, or publicists. It’s a good time for exploring the world, or new perspectives, with friends.
Even so, Mars is retrograde and will be retrograde until August 27th, and this suggests it’s better to save brand-new ventures for a later date. For now, however, you’re in excellent shape for applying your energy to projects already in progress. There may be treasures to be found in the past now.
A Venus-Uranus-Saturn configuration occurs around the time of the eclipse and colors its energies. You’re both conservative and progressive in your approach to your pastimes, pleasures, and social life. This is a wonderful time for connecting with people who inspire you or who you inspire. Teaming up can bring rewards. New interactions can be exciting or new life can be breathed into current connections. A Sun-Pluto opposition also ties into the energies of the eclipse and presents a challenge, perhaps pitting your desire for new experiences against your attachment to your routines. In truth, you may have a lot on your plate, but you need a break from time to time so that you can refresh yourself and your mind. Consider that you may be limiting your growth by sticking too closely to your habits, methods, neighborhood, or home. Do what you can to make room for spirit-boosting activities in your life, even if it means pulling yourself away from current projects and routines once in a while.
With a Solar Eclipse bringing powerful energy to your intimacy sector, the period ahead is one of empowerment and discovery, dear Sagittarius. This is a time for working on yourself from the inside out, for addressing dependencies and issues of support, and for improving an intimate relationship. If you’ve been too dependent on others, or the opposite, too proud to ask for help, then you’ll see and feel it acutely at this time, and you’ll want to make changes. The period ahead is outstanding for focusing on issues of intimacy and sharing, as well as for developing self-mastery skills. Goals to reduce debt, to get support, to quit a bad habit, or to understand your psychological workings better are favored now.
If you’ve been holding on too tightly to a relationship or a financial arrangement, then this is a time for coming to terms with the dependency. It can also be a time when you’re wanting/asking for more depth from a project, relationship, or endeavor. Use this eclipse’s positive blast of energy to sort out financial support issues or emotional entanglements as you go forward. If you’ve been going it alone, this can also be an essential cycle for reaching out and finding the support you need. On the other side of the coin, if dependencies have become burdensome or are limiting your growth, now is a great time to work on putting them behind you. Taking small, progressive steps makes the most sense.
Mars is retrograde until August 27th, suggesting that some brand-new ventures may not get off the ground. However, it’s a fine time to pour extra energy into current or past endeavors.
This is, in fact, a powerful time to get in deeper touch with yourself, inner desires, fears, addictions, and vulnerabilities. Occurring at the same time as the eclipse is an opposition between the Sun and Pluto, you may need to deal with areas of your life where you’ve become overly attached before you can fully benefit from the eclipse’s energy. Issues related to money or power dynamics in a relationship may be in focus now. Aim to purge, release, and let go so that you can grow along with this eclipse energy and begin anew. You may need to let others in or get some outside support so that you can rest easy. This is a time for letting others in! Helping you along is a Venus-Uranus-Saturn configuration that suggests openings with career, work, or money can help you along. Working on creating a stable, smooth-running, or consistent routine or income can help free you for opportunities to expand and connect now.
With a Solar Eclipse bringing powerful energy to your partnership sector, dear Capricorn, you’re in a strong position for new beginnings regarding your close relationships. Negotiations and one-to-one relationships are highlighted now and in the coming weeks. It can be a time for beginning new relationships or re-defining existing ones in significant ways. A stronger awareness of the role someone plays in your life or the need for support and companionship may be in focus now. This is a sound period for making contacts and for making something public. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to a problematic relationship, then circumstances now might push the matter.
When a Solar Eclipse happens, we are still symbolically in the dark, so that today and the next few are suitable for paying attention to news coming in and feelings emerging, but taking new action should wait at least a few days.
Mars remains retrograde until August 27th, and it’s wise to keep in mind that not all brand-new ventures will have staying power. However, it’s a fine time to pour energies into current ventures or possibly renew past ones.
A Sun-Pluto opposition ties into the energy of this eclipse because it occurs around the same time. Try to treat this as a time for coming to a better understanding of yourself and avoid counting on someone to do exactly as you want or expect. More importantly, try your best not to mastermind a situation having to do with people and emotions. Nip fear in the bud, especially if it finds you frequently tense in the presence of a partner. If you aim to stay very open and flexible, which can be challenging to do right now but not impossible, then you get yourself into an empowered position. This puts you in the best possible position for enjoying the benefits of the eclipse, allowing you to start anew in a relationship. Also aiding you to more fully benefit from the eclipse’s energy is a Venus-Saturn-Uranus configuration, suggesting a break from the usual routine, a creative or romantic pursuit, or a fun and leisurely activity may be just what you need to turn a new page. You have a taste for something different, particularly when it comes to self-expression, personal enjoyment and entertainment, pleasures, and learning. Opening up adds to the fun, and creativity can blossom.
This Solar Eclipse can prompt a refresh or new chapter in your life related to work, health, habits, and routines, dear Aquarius. It heralds a period when new diet regimes, healthy routines, and satisfying work schedules can be successfully initiated, and current ones improved or revamped. You’re in a strong position to take care of business, handle details, and increase your efficiency. Circumstances around you can force these matters or simply motivate and prompt you to want to make big changes. It’s a good time to recognize and honor your limits regarding how much you can give and do. It’s time to structure your life.
This period is marked by a desire to sort things out and to be useful. Over the coming weeks, it’s time to take charge of your health, self-care initiatives, and work. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to a difficult work situation or job, then this is a time for letting go.
Mars continues to retrograde until August 27th, and until August 12th, this happens in your sign, suggesting it’s better to look back and slow down before moving ahead. Brand new ventures may not pick up steam, but putting your energies into editing and refining works in progress can be useful and rewarding now.
It will be easier to wipe the slate clean and start anew if you deal with psychological issues that have been holding you back. A Sun-Pluto opposition ties into the energies of the eclipse, and suggests that dealing with insecurities that undermine your productivity or emotional blocks that keep you from taking better care of yourself is essential and can be rewarding now. Helping you along is a Venus-Uranus trine, also occurring at the time of the eclipse and imprinting its energies into it. This can inspire you to let go of negative thinking or old relating patterns. There can be pleasant changes on the home front or a sudden desire to change up your immediate environment, as you’re in need of a refreshing change of pace. This can serve to open your mind to new routines and habits. A relationship may also be a strong motivator for you to pick up your socks, so to speak!
This Solar Eclipse occurs in your sector of romance, creative self-expression, recreation, children, and hobbies, dear Pisces. Events happening now and in the coming weeks set you up for new beginnings in one or more of these areas of life. Romantic inclinations are highlighted, as are any kind of celebratory, playful, and just-for-fun endeavors. You will be especially aware of your need for approval and feedback from others during this period, deriving pleasure from the ways your creativity impact the world around you. This can be a passionate time for you and a time when you might feel bolder about sharing yourself or your creations than usual. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to people or projects that have been keeping you from expressing your true self, this is a time for making necessary changes.
You are likely to attract positive attention from others, especially romantically or creatively speaking. You may be starting a new hobby or stepping up a current one. You are making big decisions about recreation, hobbies, love, and children now and in the coming months.
Mars remains retrograde until August 27th, and this suggests that brand-new ventures that haven’t been well-researched may not get off the ground. However, you’re in a powerful position to work on edits and refinements of existing ideas and projects.
Tied into the energies of this eclipse is a Sun-Pluto opposition, suggesting a struggle. You may be finding new ways to communicate and enjoy yourself, and these can take you away from certain friends, networks, or groups. Or, the pressures of a long-term dream/plan or friendship can be intense. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to people or projects that have been keeping you from expressing your true self, you’ll be feeling the restriction and looking to make changes. The goal now should be to let go of excessive attachments to things that are limiting your growth, particularly if attempting to mastermind a situation or fear of not being “in the know” in a relationship is a major time suck and energy drain. Do your best to prioritize your enjoyment and sense of play now. Helping out is another energy that imprints its energies on this eclipse, and it opens up opportunities related to your relationships. This is not the time to fall back on old habits in your writing, speech, and interactions. There can be pleasant surprises in your conversations or your news feed that help open up opportunities to you.
