Financial matters rarely take care of themselves; we need to roll up our sleeves and do something about them. Emotional matters are usually the same way; they don’t get better unless they get attention. Anyway, so far as I can see, you need the satisfaction of resolving something on your own terms: yet frequently those terms involve taking a passive approach. Gradually your motivation has been perking up, but it’s been easy enough to ignore. Over the next few weeks, you’re likely to be feeling highly motivated to get your life in gear; which is a beautiful thing as long as you connect the engine to the wheels. If you get the sense that the free flow of energy is blocked, it’s not actually about money or about love; it’s about your trust in your own creativity; trusting your ability to make a positive impact on a situation. I would ask you, what exactly would it take to get you there?

If Your Birthday is Aug. 5
(The Day of Resolute Composure) | Leo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You have no need to drag around the hang-ups of your parents. You might not think that’s what you’re doing, though it’s a pandemic. People who both succeed in life and are happy doing so always put down the karma of previous generations and make the choices that are right for them. You have nobody to impress, and nothing to atone for. This is worth the challenge.
Written in the Planets
If the last day or two saw you stubbornly misdirecting your energy (especially sexual energy) or overcompensating in some way, today may bring a sense of innate emotional understanding of why that was. A trine between Venus in Cancer and Nessus in Pisces is at play, picking up where last night’s Mars-Pallas square left off. You might even be able to infuse genuine compassion into a situation with seemingly karmic (or painful) complexity, now that you grasp it better. Keeping your thought processes grounded in your body-wisdom could help (that is, how does your body feel, and what does that tell you?). All of this is feeding into the approaching partial lunar eclipse and the space it will open up. Stay aware, and see if you can do some of what you love these next couple days.
“I have just listened to your Part 1 and Part 2 readings and I am amazed at how accurate it has been. Like you have a telescope watching me shed a skin and transform into a totally changed person in the last 10 years.”
— Pauline Jones
The reverberations from these two eclipses will keep rippling out and developing through the next six to twelve months — and Eric’s upcoming 2017-18 Leo Birthday Reading will be designed to guide you through it all.
“The past few years have been very difficult on many levels and it has been the readings I get through you that keep me going. Always, absolutely right on, every one of them.”
