America has recently experienced one of the most breathtaking celestial events one can imagine, and is now trying to figure out what it all means. Solar eclipses are truly spectacular natural phenomena as they change how we see the sun and for a brief moment we get to enjoy the starry night sky during the day and the magnificent corona around the sun that’s usually invisible to the naked eye. But what does it mean on a greater scale? Or maybe we should treat this solar eclipse differently and see how it affects the lives of each person individually? Solar eclipses are a big deal in astrology and there’s a reason for that. Here are 10 things we should expect after the eclipse on August, 21st.
Guard your health
All people whose birthdays are within five days of the eclipse (August, 21st) or on February, 21st should pay close attention to their health. If you happen to have your birthday in this period, prepare for a ground-breaking year that will bring critical changes to your life.
Prepare for big change
Eclipses are very symbolic as they block the sun with all its vitality, illumination, health, and truth. Solar eclipses always mark the ending of something – and, thus, the beginning of something new. Nowadays it is not considered bad lack to be in the path of the eclipse, but it was still a shadow that has fallen over the United States, and there’s symbolism in there, too.
America will feel the eclipse strongly
Countries have birthdays too, you know? And the last time the United States was in the path of totality it was 1776, a year when we threw off the shackles of a king, had war, and established long-lasting independence. The theme of this eclipse is ‘breakthrough’, but we have to remember that breakthroughs often come after breakdowns. This is the time when America needs to deal with its self-image.
Eclipse will affect Donald Trump
All Leos will feel the eclipse strongly and it will change their fate. Although President Trump is under the Gemini sign, his ascendant is at 29 degrees of Leo, and this says a lot about him. Leo ascendant is what makes him exude all that bravado. The sun is the ruler of Leo and its metal is gold, hence the love for glitz and glamour. Eclipses in Leo have been historically linked to the downfall of a ruler or the coming of one. Donald Trump was born during a lunar eclipse, which makes him even more susceptible to changes.
All leaders should beware
Eclipses have not been kind to rulers throughout history. As the sun is associated with vitality and health in rulers, when it gets eclipsed, it’s like the source of life and energy is suddenly taken away. The sun brings light, good fortune, and power – Louis XIV was named the Sun King for a reason. Yet Mongkut, King of Siam, wasn’t as fortunate and has experienced a solar eclipse during his rule. He was a prominent astrologer and predicted a solar eclipse on August 18, 1868, and he was right. But during the expedition to see the eclipse Mongkut got ill with malaria and died six weeks later.
An eclipse is to blame for Bill Clinton’s impeachment
According to astrologers, Bill Clinton was basically fated to get impeached in December, 1998. Five days before the solar eclipse Bill Clinton got to testify before the grand jury, and it was a disaster. He was impeached by the House of Representatives three months later, and after another three months, right before yet another eclipse, he was acquitted by the Senate.
Competing energies combine during this eclipse
The solar eclipse itself may not even be the most interesting thing. What else did we see in the sky? Three different planets bearing three different energies came together to foretell a bumpy ride for our nearest future. Saturn and Mars, which are by far the most difficult planets in astrology, bring in the energies of instability, destruction, but also breakthroughs. Mars is all about courage, aggression, persistence, and the ability to set and pursue goals. Saturn likes structure and order. When we look at these three planets together, we see a recipe for disaster, but with a possibility of an amazing outcome.
It’s still early to hide in the bunker
Of course, Mars is directly connected to warfare, police, and all things military, so we need to be prepared in that department. But it is also true that energies that are at play here won’t turn the whole world upside down in just a few days. The effect of an eclipse can become vivid after months or even years! But we should be expecting some kind of upheaval – some vital information will be unlocked and important decisions made.
Sagittarius will change the game
Astrologers are captivated by the presence of Sagittarius as the one responsible for trade and powers. Trump’s belligerent attitude and harsh words may lead to a decrease of his power and influence. We can only wait and see!
Astrologers aren’t soothsayers, but they have a point
Astrologers are not trying to scare us into believing we are on the verge of a societal collapse, they are just reading the hints about possible events that might not be that dramatic at all. But it is definitely a good wakeup call that should make us stop for a minute, look around us, and ask ourselves ‘How on Earth did we get here?’ All these premonitions are designed to give us a moment to brace ourselves and be prepared for all that is about to happen.
