HAPI Guide Summer 2017 - Page 31

PURPOSE Pluto is tied to emotions and impatient Mars wants his way now. The nice thing to say about this is that you can delve deeply into hidden emotions and get in touch with inner vulnerability. The not so nice side of this full moon will be seen in the news. On July 20, aggressive Mars moves into creative Leo and is ready to play through early September. Open your heart and have some fun. Mars, com- bined with the new moon in Leo on the 23rd, be- gins the buildup of energy towards next month’s total solar eclipse. AUGUST: August brings two eclipses. The Aquarius-Leo lu- nar eclipse is on August 7 and will be seen in Afri- ca, Asia and Australia. Aquarius urges you to create win-win environments in your life. It is associated with friends, groups and organizations, making this a good month to explore new networking op- portunities. But there is another side to Aquarius in that they sometime like to detach from the world and live in their own bubble reality, not a bad thing to do during summer. The solar eclipse on August 21 is a total eclipse that crosses over the USA starting in Oregon. 31 | HAPI Guide Action happens under eclipse paths. If you know where 29 degrees of Leo lands in your natal chart, you know the area of your life where you must open your heart, develop creative solutions, and step into leadership in your world. Solar eclipses represent new beginnings that come from deep within you, not the stuff of ego. This eclipse makes a harmonious trine to innovative Uranus. Step out of your normal routine and try something outside the box. Be willing to create a new method or learn something that is out of your comfort zone. Meet new people. Note that Mercury is retrograde Au- gust 12-September 5, making August a good time to take a short retreat from the world.
