There's a lot happening in the month of August, astrologically speaking. We begin the month in Mercury retrograde, which might mess with communication and travel, making things a little more complicated for everyone. Around mid-month, on August 11, there's a partial solar eclipse that is going to bring about a specific energy. While it will affect everyone, there are a few zodiac signs that the August partial solar eclipse will affect the least — and if one of those signs is yours, you're going to want to know about it!
This month's solar eclipse is the last of the summer's three seismic eclipses, and it falls in Leo. Eclipses are typically known for bringing about some sort of change, for opening some doors while slamming others shut. An eclipse typically makes you aware of certain things, pushing you in the right direction in some way. Solar eclipses specifically typically correspond with new beginnings and opportunities. According to Allure, "For many people, solar eclipses are when we realize we need more than what we’re currently receiving, and we send cosmic invitations to the universe to welcome abundance."
This eclipse is also about fixing an imbalances in your life. It might help you close some parts of the past that you don't need to be focused on anymore, or bring about some kind of revelation. This is pretty general, but what does it mean for you specifically? Bustle spoke with astrologer Lisa Stardust, who says that if you call one of the below signs your own, the solar eclipse isn't going to affect you as much as it will affect some other signs out there. That's a good thing — and a good reason to take advantage of the energy out there.
