The sun is called Sol in French- not coincidental as the Sun represents our spiritual light and truth, the moon represents the Shadow or Ego aspects of self that are usually formed from unresolved wounds. As such, this is a mystically significant time to release whatever is holding you back from sharing your try light with the world.
If you have not done a lot of 'inner work' you may feel extra sensitive, fatigued, frustrated or affected by things around you. It is a good time to check in on your inner self and nurture your soul. Notice what is arising from the dark rooms of your unconscious. Take note of your dreams, the themes arising. What is triggering you? What is calling you release control, expectations and allow the cosmic forces to guide the timing of things. What patterns, habits and fears need to be surrendered to make way for feminine flow? Thankfully as the moon passes the Sun it brings renewed hope to align you to your feminine energy of allowing, acceptance, receptivity, creativity and intuition.

You may notice you manage challenges more seamlessly or are less thrown into chaotic reactions if things do not go as planned. Celebrate your growth and chose to take these new found strengths into your future.
The new moon indicates that now is a time for fresh feels and new ventures! According to Native American Shamans, a Solar Eclipse represents a powerful time of healing our idea of separation on a cosmic level. You will be offered an opportunity to strengthen relationships to yourself and others. You might be moved to share new gifts with the world! Mutual understanding, compassion, patience and love are being cultivated by the light of the sun. By integrating this into your personal life you can help the world move from opposition and chaos into a place of unity, love and peaceful existence.
