Interesting: What does Solar Eclipse mean for you?

A total eclipse of the Sun will occur in the sign of Leo on August 1, 2008. Although this eclipse has a pretty narrow trajectory and will only be visible in parts of Canada, across the Arctic and into China, it still represents metamorphosis -- change is in the air.

A Solar eclipse occurs when the Moon is exactly between the Sun and the Earth, blocking the solar rays from reaching us. From ancient times to the modern-day world, solar eclipses have heralded spectacular events and this one is no exception! Solar eclipses in Leo, the sign of leadership, signal changes for leaders of countries, heads of corporations and other people in powerful positions. Expect interesting headlines!

What does the eclipse mean for you? Since this eclipse occurs in the sign of Leo, its impact will feel different depending on which House Leo is positioned in your birth chart.

If your Sun sign or Ascendant is Leo, almost every part of your life will be affected. If you are an Aquarian or have Aquarius rising, you will also feel this eclipse more strongly than most because Aquarius is opposite of Leo and is in direct alignment with this eclipse. Overall, you will find yourself reinventing your life, even changing your appearance to reflect the shifts in your life. Ultimately, changes in how you see yourself will ripple out and affect personal and business relationships.

If Leo is in your First or Seventh House, you will focus on yourself, your marriage or your relationship.

If it is situated in the Second or Eight House, your earnings or joint finances will be impacted.

If it is the Third or Ninth House, travel or educational pursuits are highlighted.

In the Fourth or Tenth House, home and career will come front and center.

Eclipses in the Fifth or Eleventh House put the spotlight on self-expression, children, groups and organizations.

Finally, eclipses in the Sixth or Twelfth House put the focus on health, work and service.

Wisdom holds that the effects of a solar eclipse last as long in years as the eclipse lasts in hours. Events that are triggered by an eclipse usually take six months to unfold, so you can expect this process of change to continue. The opportunity to break old patterns will present themselves as you make changes.
