Summary: Something that looked very promising over the past six months since the last eclipse in Leo did not materialize, manifest or come together. As a result, we feel very defeated and gave our power away by letting our emotional responses and reactions control and undermine us. It is now our responsibility to regain control of these by changing our perceptions and redirecting our thoughts such as by mentally turning this past defeat into a personal victory. Currently our response to it has weakened us and is holding us captive. Once we do our part, the Universe will further assist us by sending in a grounding influence. However, rather than repeat past patterns we must really be disciplined about not entertaining negative thoughts and about maintaining emotional sovereignty by keeping a safe emotional distance, or rather detachment, from the outcome until the thing or person (likely a friend, colleague or lover who will assist in in some way or help change the direction of our lives by showing or offering us different options or alternatives), that is about to enter our lives has proven itself or themselves to us, after which we can start emotionally investing in it or them. In the meantime, we must focus on and come up with a plan or strategy for healing and the recovery of our strength (in other words, self-nurturing), the result being abundance and the attainment of something we've been waiting a long time for. The past disappointment was very likely part of the bigger plan and was important for helping us finally heal.
