The August 21 SOLAR ECLIPSE passes directly over the continental United States, border to border which means the influence is strongest in the states. However, the eclipse influences life across the globe, to be sure.
The DOMAINS over which the SUN PRESIDES, astrologically are the areas of greatest vulnerability. As mentioned previously, one result is with regards to HEALTH – an eclipse can weaken the body for a period of up to 6 months, being especially problematic for those who already have health complaints or are in a weakened state of body for any reason. An eclipse exploits weakness and incites confrontation and conflict.
An eclipse has special significance for people in government, notably the AMERICAN PRESIDENT and those in his inner circle, but also heads of government around the world. Because the Sun presides over the “ruler” of any country, the eclipse signals a time of caution for those in power across the global community. This means concern for the health and safety of these individuals as well as the success of their respective undertakings. By the way, beyond TRUMP’S vulnerability as Head of State, his personal horoscope further underscores that this is not a good time for him. In astrology, important themes are often echoed or restated in several ways as is the case here.
The LUNAR ECLIPSE of August 7 ushered us into this problematic period which has brought the current NORTH KOREAN situation, and the tensions there will continue to mount. Existing problems on the world stage will be further aggravated; this is the nature of eclipses.
Important to remember that an eclipse brings affects that do not necessarily appear immediately, but develop over the subsequent months. There is also the concern for NATURAL DISASTERS around and after the eclipse: climate related issues, earthquakes, hurricanes, flooding, fire, etc. as well as the possibility for accidents. The solar eclipse brings with it the possibility for any of these events for 3-6 months (and even longer), but it does not say that it has to happen.
As I’ve said during troublesome periods in the past – it serves no purpose to become overly concerned about things out of our control. It is a CAUTIONARY PERIOD so we take precautions and then continue living out our days in a natural way. Ultimately, God’s will prevails; our part is to remain mindful.
