The great American Eclipse of 2017

Post by eddie on Tue Aug 15, 2017 6:25 pm

The biggest cosmic event in North America is fast approaching. The Aug. 21 solar eclipse is happening during Mercury Retrograde, and it's likely to have a pretty big effect on your life — even after it's over. So, just what does the 2017 solar eclipse mean for your sign? While the actual solar eclipse will only last two minutes, according to Astrologist Lynn Koiner it can affect you for three-to-six months before it happens, and for up to one year afterward.

This solar eclipse is the first one visible in North America since 1979, however that one was only visible in a few states in New England making this solar event the first one visible to most of North America in almost 100 years. The eclipse, which takes place Aug. 21, 2017 at 28 degrees and 53 minutes of Leo, will affect people born with personal planets and points at approximately 24 to 30 degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius), and approximately zero to four degrees of the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) most significantly, Cafe Astrology noted. If you're not sure what your personal planets are, you can do a free astrological birth chart to find out.

Solar eclipses signify new beginnings, and the Astro Twins noted that eclipses can usher in the unexpected, which can force you into action whether you'e ready or not. It's not a bad idea to consider a new moon/solar eclipse ritual to set your intentions. If you want to know how the solar eclipse will affect your sign so you can be prepared to wade through the cosmic kerfuffle, here's the quick and dirty on what to expect.

ARIES - gets creative
While cardinal-sign Aries might feel full of creative expression this month, Cafe Astrology noted that it's not the time for engaging in any long-term commitments. "The solar eclipse can affect [Aries] in various ways, as it occurs in your sector of romance, hobbies, creativity, and children. This eclipse acts to usher in change and new beginnings in one or more of these areas, and your life may feel as if it's been turned upside down, likely in a very positive way."

Astrology King noted that the solar eclipse is an ideal time for Aries to experience growth and success, and the effect of the eclipse will last until February 2018

TAURUS - trends towards change
The solar eclipse will bring winds of change for fixed-sign Taurus. Cafe Astrology noted that the solar eclipse will have Taurus focusing on matters close to home. "Because the energies centered on this sector of your solar chart are so dynamic, you'll want to do something special, take action, and make changes. In fact, changes in your family dynamic or home life are necessary — and may be a long time coming — as the solar eclipse ushers in powerful energy for new beginnings in your personal life."

If you've been feeling out of balance since the recent lunar eclipse, Astrology King reported that things will start looking up for Taurus with the solar eclipse. And, if you feel strongly about something during this time, you're likely to get what you want.

GEMINI - is a force
Mutable-sign Gemini, you're going to will blow through August at a furious pace with most of your focus on letting go of the past, and forging new relationships and partnerships as result, according to Cafe Astrology. "This eclipse occurs in your solar third house, suggesting a new approach to communications projects, learning, or self-expression. A new position in the neighborhood, relocation, or increased interaction with others may be part of the picture in the coming months, as well as a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to the way you handle your daily activities."

Astrology King noted that bold changes are on the horizon for Gemini as a result the solar eclipse, and will last through February if Gemini can resolve any outstanding relationship issues first.

CANCER - focus on career
For cardinal-sign Cancer, the solar eclipse is an ideal time to put plans into action, and achieve your goals. "The solar eclipse happens in your solar second house, and Mars charges through this sector all month, making you intent on bringing your recent ideas and endeavors to life and building or developing these projects," Cafe Astrology noted.

According to Astrology King, conditions are good for Cancer from the solar eclipse through February with a harmonious home life lending the support you need to improve your career prospects.

LEO - gets a clean slate
For fixed-sign Leo, the solar eclipse in Leo can give lionesses a clean slate. "Something new begins, and it can feel much like a new chapter in your life story," Cafe Astrology noted. "You are ready to kick bad habits, start fresh, and present a more self-assured 'you' to the world. However, this can emerge from a feeling that you're very much not in control or in charge, so there can be some discomfort involved."

Astrology King noted that the solar eclipse in Leo is an ideal time for those born under Leo to turn over a new leaf, work toward future goals, and leave the past in the past.

VIRGO - looks within
It's a rocky time for mutable-sign Virgo with Mercury Retrograde in Virgo. The solar eclipse will have Virgo-born people looking within, and bring great introspection and contemplation to this sign. "The solar eclipse reinforces a need to look within [Virgo]," Cafe Astrology noted. "August is important for seeking out a balance between doing and resting, and slowing down can, in fact, benefit you."

Astrology King noted because the solar eclipse is in Virgo's solar chart, the good vibes from the solar eclipse could last as long as a year for Virgo. So after a tumultuous Mercury Retrograde, things will turn around.

LIBRA -  embraces collaboration
Cardinal-sign Libra is ready to get their group groove on during the solar eclipse. "[For Libra] the solar eclipse brings a charge of energy to friendships and group associations," Cafe Astrology revealed. Some of you may have been pursuing a project on your own, and you now recognize the need to delegate tasks, collaborate, or start something brand new. The change is likely to be an empowering one."

Astrology King noted that determination and enthusiasm are the secrets to Libra's success during the solar eclipse with positive effects lasting through February.

SCORPIO - personal  issues bubbling
For fixed-sign Scorpio, issues that have been resting just below the surface will take center stage during the solar eclipse. "This is a time for entirely new direction or a brand new outlook on your goals," Cafe Astrology explained. "It's a great time for getting your financial affairs in order, and this can tie in beautifully to the whole 'turning over a new leaf' vibe of this eclipse season."

Astrology King noted that for Scorpio, the solar eclipse will bring forth bold new changes that can radiate for the next seven months, especially in your personal life.

SAGITTARIUS - strikes a new balance
Mutable-sign Sagittarius will strike a new balance in life during the solar eclipse. Think of it like your own personal new year. "[For Sagittarius], the solar eclipse brings desires to expand and grow to a turning point and helps clear the path for new beginnings," Cafe Astrology noted. "In the coming weeks and even months, energy levels smooth out, and you find a fabulous balance between responsibilities and pleasure."

Astrology King noted that in order for Sagittarius to reap the rewards of the solar eclipse, they must first resolve outstanding relationship issues. Putting off having a big conversation? Do it before Aug. 21.

CAPRICORN - could find new support
Cardinal-sign Capricorn could uncover new support during the solar eclipse, but only if they let go of the past first. Because the solar eclipse occurs in Capricorn's eighth solar house, Caps might discover a new way to share financial resources. Additionally, "New intimate liaisons or arrangements surrounding support from others (loans, joint finances, alimony, and so forth) may be formed in the coming months, as well as a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to your ability to employ self-mastery skills," according to Cafe Astrology.

Astrology King advised Capricorn to head into the solar eclipse with determination for the future in order to reap rewards for the next seven months.

AQUARIUS - enhances personal relationships
During the solar eclipse, fixed-sign Aquarius will discover a new way to relate to the people around them. The solar eclipse occurs in Aquarius' seventh house. "A new set-up in existing partnerships or a new relationship altogether may be formed in the coming months, as well as a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to your one-to-one relationship skills," Cafe Astrology noted. "This is a phase when you have an increased awareness of the need for someone significant to lean on or to rely on."

Astrology King predicted a good outcome for Aquarius during the solar eclipse and beyond, but cautioned that you'll need to be wary of those who try to derail you out of jealously.

PISCES - manifests dreams
The solar eclipse could have mutable-sign Pisces overextending themselves, which could leave them drained. Cafe Astrology advised that Pisces embrace the message from the lunar eclipse to slow things down into the solar eclipse. "A new set-up in existing jobs or a new job altogether may be formed in the coming months, as well as a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to your daily activities, health routines, and attention to practical matters. This is a phase when you have an increased awareness of the daily routines that keep you organized and of your own health."

Astrology King noted that for Pisces, the solar eclipse is a time of manifestation, and drawing on natural talents will deliver long-term success and happiness for the fish.

I don't have any time to go into greater depth with these as I'm going to watch this myself in the US.

The cardinal signs of Cancer, Capricorn, Libra and Aries are the LEAST affected by this eclipse.

This will give you a better guide: http://horoscope.co.uk

She's a great astrologer and the weekly and monthly podcasts are great.

Happy eclipse!!


Ps Trump was born along this eclipse line and this is the first solar eclipse in America in decades. This solar eclipse is in LEO and Leo rules king's and peooke of power.
Astrologers predicted that it would kick off in the US this August.

Interesting relationships to the President and past political events

As mentioned in the introduction, many are looking at this eclipse in relationship to the current US President, Donald Trump very curiously; for Trump shares a great deal of connections to this eclipse in his own natal (astrological) chart.

Donald TrumpHere is an example of what we’re seeing: The New Moon in Leo eclipse will be conjunct Trumps Mars and Ascendant. Generally an eclipse conjunct with Mars bears relationship with stoking up anger; suggesting argumentation, violence, increased stress, or simply accident prone.

Ultimately, the big connection to Trump here is that the eclipse is passing through house 10 during the transition. Houses 9, 10, and 11 are “hot spots” in eclipse charts, and they are also quite significant in Trumps charts too, but this does not indicate “what” will happen, only that “things are happening!” But what’s even more interesting is that in the past, significantly every 18.5 years there has been an eclipse which coincided with some sort of political event which transpired in relationship with this particular type of eclipse. Let’s go through the list.

1909: There was an assassination attempt on President William Howard Taft while he was on a trip to mexico.
1927-1928: An event called “the pineapple primary” (named for all of the hand grenades) took place six months after the mayor of Chicago “Big Bill” Thompson was re-elected (in 1927, when the eclipse took place); whose re-election was supported by the Al Capone, notorious mobster of his time. There were also a great deal of natural and man-made disasters, including major tornados, floods, gas explosions, a huge dam falling in California, and a massive fire in Florida.
1945: Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs dropped, and FDR died of natural causes several months prior.
1963: JFK was assassinated.
1981: Ronald Reagan had an attempted assassination.
1998 – 1999: Bill Clinton was impeached

Which leads us to this latest eclipse in 2017… will this eclipse signal the continuation of this stream of events? Only time will tell. In truth, the very election of Donald Trump might very well be what is signified as the turning point itself, as these events always take place ‘around’ the eclipses, but not necessarily on the day.

In truth, in all likelihood this day will come and go by as every other does, but this does not suggest that there is not a greater energy at work here. For those who are looking to the skies with hope or fear, we invite you to remember that no matter what, we are are all co-creating our realities together, whether we choose to live in fear, hope, love, or panic, our attention dictates what we will create.

If we spend our time leading up to and through this upcoming eclipse with hope and love in our hearts and minds, we will almost definitely cast our “solidification” on that particular motion, and the results will show in our lives as to how the next years continue to unfold. With that said, there is one more crazy event that seems to be coming up too, related to September 23rd.

More. https://spiritsciencecentral.com/august-21st-eclipse/

Don't know. I've studied astrology for absolutely years and I've seen some very interesting things.
In any case, the moon moving in front of the sun and blocking it is awesome, right?

So I came to Texas to experience it.  

Look at these photos.  Stunningly beautiful.

Seriously beautiful. The next total one in Texas is 2024. We only got about 75% coverage yesterday but still looked amazing.
The moon simply fascinates me.

Yes... about 18 years ago... I went to a place called Lizzard in Cornwall to see it, as it was billed as being the best place in UK to see it... there was a big music festival there... which was great... got some real mind bending trips down there too... but didnt see much of the eclipse cos it was heavy cloud cover!!!


Was seen better from London!!!


But I did see Kula Shaker play down there... which was epic...!!!


lol!

Yes... about 18 years ago... I went to a place called Lizzard in Cornwall to see it, as it was billed as being the best place in UK to see it... there was a big music festival there... which was great... got some real mind bending trips down there too... but didnt see much of the eclipse cos it was heavy cloud cover!!!


Was seen better from London!!!


But I did see Kula Shaker play down there... which was epic...!!!


lol!


Been to Lizkeard many times. Beautiful  part of Cornwall.
