This lunar eclipse calls for renewal and change

Monday has some big astrological treats in store for us! For those of you who aren’t up to date on the celestial bodies, there will be a lunar eclipse on August 7. Unfortunately, the eclipse won’t be visible in North and South America, but just because you might not have the chance to see its visual effects, it doesn’t mean that you will be able to escape its other effects on your life.

What does the lunar eclipse mean for your life? Well, eclipses usually represent the closing or beginning of a cycle. It’s a time for renewal and rebirth. This means letting go. Things that have been brewing in your life might be coming to an end. This could be the start of a new chapter for you.

Now is the time to take a look at your relationships and needs. What do you need right now? Try to tune in to your own needs and refrain from asking others for help. This lunar eclipse will help you find your own answer to your problems, because only you know what’s best for you.

This lunar eclipse is in the sign of Aquarius. Aquarius is the weirdo of the zodiac. Be prepared for some funky change in your life!

Remember that new business scheme you wanted to start with your best friend? Or that art project you’ve been meaning to create for years? What about that novel you never wrote? This lunar eclipse will give you the gumption you’ve been needing to finally buckle down and get to it! Get inspired!

Just remember not to get too caught up in your new endeavors, as you run the risk of neglecting loved ones.

Now is the time to start over! Leave your emotional baggage at the door.

This eclipse wants you to work as a team player. Remember that it’s not all about you. Be a little less selfish and work with your team and partners towards a common goal. You’re in this together and you need to look out for others too! This is also a good time to work on unresolved relationship issues, whether they be with friends, family or romantic partners. Try to declutter your life, both emotionally and physically.

Lunar goals: Be selfless, clean up your living area and go to the doctor.

Expect positive changes in your career, Taurus. Hopefully this means that you’ll be able to afford those luxurious 500 thread-count sheets you’ve had your eye on. You might be experiencing a shake-up in your romantic life as well. Try and make some time for yourself, while still maintaining communication with your boo. You also might run into a blast from the past, so be prepared.

Lunar goals: Reach out to companies you want to work for and update your resume.

What are your goals, Gemini? What are you doing to meet them? Have they changed? Take a moment to really examine what you want out of life right now. This eclipse will focus on the travel and education areas of your life. Take this into consideration when mapping out your goals.

Lunar goals: Book a trip or sign up for a class.

You will be experiencing some financial changes this week. Maybe you are starting a new job or maybe a big investment just paid off. Be aware of how you are handling this influx in income. When it comes to close friends and partnerships, now might be the time to ask yourself if it’s all worth it. Are you getting back what you’re putting into you your relationships? Are they worth your time and effort?

Lunar goals: Make a budget.

This is a week for revelations, loving Leo. Whatever you’ve been working on in the last six months will be coming to a close. Be aware of relationship dynamics and how you can improve them. Take time to think.

Lunar goals: Listen and be self-aware.

Are you taking care of yourself in the best possible way, Virgo? This week is about health and lifestyle changes. Maybe it’s time to finally start going to the gym? Quit smoking? Start that weird raw foods diet or juice cleanse you’ve been so curious about? Whatever it is, remember to be give your body what it needs and be healthy.

Lunar goals: Self-care.

Find balance in your life, Libra. You think you want one thing, and when you get it, you want the other. Try and find an equilibrium. You may also need to make a big decision about your romantic life. Now is the time to do what you Libras find so difficult: make a decision! You can’t keep going back and forth on this forever. The eclipse could also bring about changes in your creativity. Show the world your talent! Get your creative juices flowing and create! Share your work with others and get yourself out there.

Lunar goals: Work on creative projects and make real decisions.

Your changes this eclipse will center around your home. Maybe you’re moving to a new city or in with someone. You also might be feeling emotional, but what else is new, Scorpio? Just remember not to take things too personally and to talk to loved ones calmly and deliberately. Don’t let your emotions get the best of you.

Lunar goals: Look into new living options.

This eclipse draws you to team up with someone for a project. This could be your partner, a friend, coworker, family member, or someone entirely new. Either way, it’s about communication, teamwork and leadership. As the duo Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock said, it takes two to make a thing go right, it takes two to make it outta sight. You may also be interested in moving to a new neighborhood.

Lunar goals: Work together.

Money, money, money. Pay attention of job offers and finances this week, because you might be in for a treat! Be on the lookout for new job opportunities and ways to improve your current one. Have you felt stuck in your current job? Take the first step and see what else is out there! Or maybe you’re concerned that you’re not advancing in your company. See what you can do to make the most of what you have right now.

Lunar goals: Ask for a raise and apply for jobs.

Get ready, wacky Aquarius. This is your week! Everyone’s eyes are on you! This could be great for you or it could be disastrous, so be careful! You will finally receive praise and feel appreciated for all that hard work that you’ve been doing. Just remember not to spread yourself too thin.

Lunar goals: Take advantage of this eclipse and be adventurous.

Keep your head clear and listen to your intuition, sensitive Pisces. Try and steer clear of your vices and take care of your body. This is a time for you to heal and forgive and take time for introspection.

Lunar goals: Take time out and listen.
