New Ways to Resolve Problems

If any particular problem has got you stumped, you may find some new ways to resolve them.

Let the Ideas Flow

Leo is unsurpassed when it comes to artistic expression. Whatever you choose to focus on, whether it is an art form such as painting, drawing, or dance, or something more practical such as having children in your life, what you create by your own efforts is likely to be something that will make you proud. The act of expression is one of the most important characteristics of Leo. Don’t keep it in. Let the ideas flow out of you. Make a list of the steps necessary to manifest those ideas into a more tangible form.

Love and Affection

If what you desire is more physical affection and love, look at the possible ways that you can get this through online ads, friends of friends, or going to some social events. You get love when you’re able to give it out freely without condition. There’s no time like the present to fulfill a vision. Let it be a fun process, treat it like play, let your inner child run loose. Seek ways to unfetter your life so that you have room to let the juices flow.

About Solar Eclipses

A solar eclipse can only occur during a New Moon, when the Moon passes directly between the Earth and the Sun to create a ‘Moon sandwich’ effect that gives the visual illusion of an eclipse.

Types of Solar Eclipses

There are four types of eclipses that can be seen from Earth.

  • The most dramatic is a ‘total eclipse,’ which happens when the Sun is completely superimposed by the disc of the Moon, leaving only a bright corona shining behind the Moon. In order to see a total eclipse, you must be in the direct path of the Sun-and-Moon alignment.
  • An ‘annular eclipse,’ in which the Sun and Moon are exactly in line but the Moon is smaller than the Sun, shows a bright ring surrounding the outline of the Moon.
  • A ‘hybrid eclipse’ is in between a total and annular eclipse. At some points on the Earth it appears as a total eclipse, but at other locations, it appears to be annular.
  • A ‘partial eclipse’ occurs when the Sun and Moon are not exactly in line, and the Moon only partially obscures the Sun. The Sun looks like a bite has been taken out of it.


Solar eclipses last only a few minutes and should always be viewed with protective glasses. Never look directly at the Sun with the naked eye, because eye damage may result — and quickly!

Since Earthlings are dependent on the Sun’s rays for light, warmth and agriculture, it’s no wonder that common folk have historically feared eclipses, when the Sun appears to be eaten up by an invisible, but incredibly powerful, mysterious being.

    Thanks Kelli, got my glasses with all the right numbers but I am more interested in what will the animals think. Doves, chickadees, sparrows, squirrels and live and feed and play here. I think I’ll be paying more attention to them. Can’t wait.

    Enjoyed my first (remembered) total solar eclipse at 1 pm CST east of Memphis, TN. today, August 21, 2017. Only had to venture as far as my front yard to get the whole event. The temp went down. The sky went grey. The horses rolled around and the local dogs were barking.WOW! We live in the rural area of TN. casual is our style, so we got out the yard chairs just like we do on July 4th! My neighbor and my husband and I were joined by her daughter and husband with their two sons, who arrived just in time to view the total penumbra. We all had proper glasses, and enjoyed the 2 min. event. I am 73, post triple by pass and major stroke, just cane walking again, and I may not get this chance again in this life, so I am impressed. A fan of your website for years, Patricia
