The Great American Eclipse

A total Solar Eclipse will occur on August 21, 2017, and the Moon’s shadow will sweep across the United States from west to east beginning in Oregon and ending in South Carolina.

IS IT RARE

Eclipses are quite common.  We usually have two sets of eclipses each year.

What is rare is for the path of a total Solar Eclipse to traverse only one nation.   The last time this happened was in 1257, but the United States had not yet been born.  The next total Solar Eclipse to graze American soil exclusively will not happen until 2316!

In 2011, there were three sets of eclipses and an additional eclipse ten days before the start of the year; in effect, there were seven eclipses within a short period of time.  Since eclipses usher big changes, years packed with eclipses can be very challenging and life changing.

HOW WILL THE AUGUST 2017 ECLIPSES AFFECT ME

A Lunar Eclipse will occur on August 7, 2017 at 15° Aquarius (opposite the Sun in Leo).  It will positively or negatively affect everyone especially those born with personal Planets and Points at 13° to 17° Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius until the next eclipse cycle.

A Solar Eclipse will occur on August 21, 2017 at 28° Leo.  It will positively or negatively affect everyone especially those born with personal Planets and Points at 26° to 30° Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius until the next eclipse cycle.

The House where you find 15° Aquarius in your natal chart will point to things you need to let go off.

The House where you find 28° Leo in your natal chart is where the upgrade will happen followed by a period of adjustment and getting used to the changes.

HOW WILL IT AFFECT THE UNITED STATES

The Lunar Eclipse will occur at 15° Aquarius in the 3rd House of the United States.

The Third House corresponds to transportation and communications.  It rules roadways, bridges, railways, automobiles and buses, traffic, transit and public travel facilities by land, sea or air.  It rules news or information media such as newspapers, magazines, radio, television, mail, post offices, telephones, and the internet.  This house also represents relations with neighboring countries.

The Solar Eclipse will occur at 28° Leo in the 9th House of the United States.

The Ninth House corresponds to long-distance travel, shipping, imports and exports, and foreign lands.  It rules foreigners, expatriates, immigrants, ecclesiastical and legal professions, religion, justice, lawyers and courts of law.  It represents universities, the academe, higher education and publishing.

How to Interpret
1. Read up on current events.  Use Hawkins' Scale to determine the current vibe of the United States.
2. Lunar Eclipse.  What are the things the United States must let go of in its 3rd House?
3. Solar Eclipse.  What are the things related to the 9th House the United States can do differently and improve on?
4. Put together your answers.  Infer on events that will affect the United States soon after the Solar Eclipse thru the next eclipse cycle.
