Thinking planet Mercury joins this eclipse suggesting that new ideas or insights could blossom. Networking, communication, a piece of information or a profound conversation may hold the key to shifting your perspectives.

The Balsamic Phase represents the work that needs to be done before the beginning of a new cycle. Before planting a new seed into the soil, you need to remove the weeds, turn the soil and fertilise it. Fresh starts can’t occur on old or worn foundations.

You can witness the beauty and sparkle of Venus in the evening sky, just as the sun sets. She’s also strengthened by this position in her synodic cycle. The sunset position in the horoscope represents relationships, as does Venus. As Venus dominates this portion of the sky over the upcoming weeks, you may notice Venus’ sweet influence in your closest relationships.
Lammas in the South, occurs while the Sun is in mid Aquarius and in the North, mid Leo. The fixed signs correlate to the height of the seasons, so it can be hard to imagine thinking of Winter while in the height of Summer, but the time rolls around quickly.
The fixed signs represent stillness. As Autumn approaches, sit in stillness and reflection of your Summer. Was it all you hoped it would be?
