EYE ON THE SKY: SUN MOVING TOWARD THE ECLIPSE
The Sun is considered afflicted when it is within 3 degrees of Rahu and so that is the case August 14-20th. In the Western world this may not be considered a bad thing because the conjunction promotes expanding your power and success at the cost of your Divinity. This can lead to attention and even minor fame but the negative side is also enhanced with too much ambition and selfishness and rigidity of ideas. Inside you may fear failure. This conjunction can promote deeper relationships with foreigners or immigrants and with the affliction, you reputation may be hurt so for Leo rising, possible that a foreign person may harm your reputation or create scandal. The key may be not reaching to high in sky so that your wings do not melt and you do not fall to the earth.
The Sun will be moving into the Ashlesha gandanta (Cancer 27-29.59) August 14-17 which is the karmic knot where the poisons of Ashlesha and its sharp tongue are collected. It is a place where the soul has to confront it past karmas and untie difficult knots which are difficult to unravel so problems may seem insurmountable next week but you will get through them. Leos are particularly vulnerable with the Sun 12 houses from its home, Leo and then they get hit by the total Solar eclipse on August 21st.
As always meditation and yoga are key to get through. The Sun is connected to Shiva so Shiva Rudram on Mondays and Thursday will be powerful and helpful and chanting Om Namah Shiva is always helpful. We will write more about the eclipse this weekend as it is still 10 day away.
