It offers new beginnings and new opportunities.

This summer has dealt a storm of astrological activity. This particular eclipse is conjunct Mercury Retrograde, which means you will be doing lots of reflecting and personal growth in whatever area of your life it’s affecting.

Consider this your bonus eclipse.

It’s your chance to create a wish list for your future. Remember to set your intentions.

august 11th solar Eclipse – AKA the inner child 

A Solar Eclipse is a powerful New Moon. It’s when the sky is at its darkest, when the energies are still brewing, and what is coming is still hidden. 

You have so much power during a New Moon. This is your chance to press the reset button and start fresh. As of this moment, what will unfold is all up to you.

There are a few interesting things going on with this Solar Eclipse, the most important being that it is conjunct Mercury RX which gives the event a childlike energy.

Therefore, let’s call this eclipse, “The Inner Child.” 

The entire sky is made up of retrograde energy, forcing you to look backward instead of forward. You’re remembering what was important to you as a child.

You’re contemplating those key values you’ve seemingly forgotten over time. When did you veer so far off track? 

A key player in this eclipse is Jupiter. He has been making you overextend yourself, spreading yourself into too many directions.

When you’re taking on too much at once, you’re only giving small pieces of yourself to each avenue. Now is the time to focus on one client, one project, or one purpose. It’s time to get back to what makes you passionate. 

This Solar Eclipse wants you to speak to your inner child. As a kid, what made you light up? What made you incredibly happy whether or not anyone was paying attention? These are the values you’re trying to rediscover. 

In a way, your past is your future.

July’s Lunar Eclipse cut out what needed to be let go. You’ve paid your karmic debt. Now you can figure out what makes you shine. Leo rules creativity, self-expression, leadership—all cornerstones of a successful business. 

Make your wishes. Become the starry-eyed child once more and remember what makes you happy.

This is how you find your path.
