Madonna knows what she’s talking about — she’s a Leo after all! Take her advice for the New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11, 2018. With Mercury’s square to Jupiter, this eclipse is an opportunity to feel better than ever before.
Leo, the magnanimous, generous and dramatic 5th sign of the zodiac, is ruled by the bright, powerful sun. And the body part it rules is the heart.
Law of Attraction experts insist that the electromagnetic field around the heart is 5000X more powerful than that of the brain. Therefore, our hearts unlock our true, complete, unabashed joyfulness — which is, incidentally, best represented by the fiery, fixed and fascinating sign of the Lion.
We can thank our lucky stars (ha, see what I did there!?) for helping us determine what will make us happy. Each astrological house, which describes a different life area, can be likened to a “key” for true happiness. During each moon cycle, one of these “keys” turns.
Sometimes the keys turn automatically; sometimes how they turn is up to us.
To find out which life area is key for you this eclipse, check where 18 degrees of Leo falls in your astrological chart. You can also read your sign or rising sign below:

Even though life is meant to be happy and joyful, sometimes we can get stuck in an emotional place that’s miserable. Sometimes it helps to find just one thing you love. Maybe it’s a TV show or a book or a song; maybe it’s looking at a bowl of oranges or a quiet night sky. Maybe you’re more adventuresome, and it’s wearing a cone-shaped bra. Whatever works! If you can just take it easy and relax and hang out and love, you may find that your resistance to well-being softens, and you can unlock the love that makes life more and more and more of a celebration. Put your heart into something, anything. Open your heart — that’s the key.
