Solar Eclipse in Leo Tarot Spread

It’s time for a solar eclipse and this one comes to us in the sign of Leo.

Leo is a time for working on success, power, vitality and taking action on things that matter most. It’s a time for looking at situations through the lens of power, pride, and success. It is a time to focus on you! For those of you that have a people pleaser tendency, this is a time that you really should sit back and take care of you.

A solar eclipse happens when there is a new moon. It happens when the moon moves between the sun and earth and blocks out the sun’s light for a short period of time. It gives us a bit of a “micro-cycle” of the sun too, which is part of what lends to the magickal power of this astro event.

A solar eclipse is a time for going inward, for letting your Shadow Self step up and take center stage with your Ego allowing for room to see what it has to reveal. Think of this as a time when you can safely take off the mask you wear to the world so you can reflect on your true self.

It creates a catalyst for making big changes and initiating endings and beginnings that can be really challenging. If you have something that you’ve been dragging your feet on this energy can be the kick in the ass you really need to just do it.

It’s also great for divination as a time to reveal the things from your shadow that have been hidden and have the realizations and ah-ha’s you need to finally see exactly what areas need healing so you can step up your evolution and bring in serious change.


Solar Eclipse in Leo Reading

This is a tarot (or oracle) spread for you to take a look at some things that could use a little light on the shadow. We’re specifically going to focus on things that connect to the energy of Leo, making this perfect for working on your confidence and personal power.

The cards are divided into two sections The Light and The Shadow. You’ll lay down a card in the Shadow and then a subsequent card in the Light to shed that eclipse light onto those shadows.


 

 

Card 1 – The Shadow of your Courage
Card 2 – The Light for your Courage
Card 3 – The Shadow of your Power
Card 4 – The Light for your Power
Card 5 – The Shadow of your Ambition
Card 6 – The Light for your Ambition
Card 7 – Leave Behind
Card 8 – Embrace Ahead


The Shadow cards show the hidden problems or lessons that you haven’t been learning around this particular area of your life. The Light card for each of the Shadow cards sheds “light” on how you can learn and grow in order to change this area.

We always want to work on creating balance, so we’re not trying to eradicate our Shadow (that isn’t even possible) but instead we want to learn the lessons it has for us now so we aren’t overpowered as new things build in the Shadow.

Leave Behind shows you what you absolutely need to let go of and leave in the past so you can see some big changes happen. Remember, if you aren’t growing and evolving you’re going to eventually get to a point of stagnation and death. And we don’t want that.

Embrace Ahead shows you actions, lessons, and ways of thinking and being that you should embrace to bring balance to the Shadow and Light within as well as create positive movement outside of yourself. This is what can help you make real changes in your life if you’d only be open to receiving it.

Don’t forget, we are headed into the dark season, so this is a great time to clear out shadow issues if you can. Mercury is also still retrograde until the 18th, so be gentle with yourself if you find things in your reading that initially hits you a little harshly.


May your solar eclipse bring you some much needed insight as you move through the second half of the year.

Jess is a great teacher, as well as an insightful reading and a wonderful healer. Her lessons are informative and easy to understand. Her cards speak to her in a way that I hope mine will to me one day. I have also had a Chakra session and a Reiki session with her and afterward I felt at peace, balanced, and whole again (I was quite sick at the time). I trust very few people, and I follow my path alone, but I trust Jess. She’s a beautiful spirit.

When I started coaching with Jess I thought I was coming to her for help with a breakup and an unexpected and sudden international move. It turned out that wasn't the real issue at all! Jess asked questions I never would have thought to ask myself and gave me a whole new perspective on what was going on in my life. She made me feel like what I want matters. By the time we were done I felt like I could take on the world!

OMG I'm blown away by the accuracy of the reading. Jess has a special gift. What she revealed to me, opened me up to a place I knew I should be at but was holding myself back from.

I was so overwhelmed trying to get back into my witchcraft practice, but Jess helped me create an actual plan and a schedule for doing the work. The results in just two months has been far beyond my expectations. I'm in touch with my power like never before!
