On Monday, Augst 21st, most of North America will enjoy an epic solar eclipse—and not only is this heavenly sight a rarity, it has massive astrological implications.
Depending on where you are in the United States, you’ll experience anything from a partial eclipse to a complete solar eclipse, during which the sun will be blotted out of the sky and blocked by the moon. This astral event will travel diagonally across North America, starting in Lincoln Beach, Oregon around 9:05 a.m. PST and ending at Charleston, South Carolina at 2:48 p.m. EST. Everyone who’s not in the direct line of the eclipse—including everyone in the contiguous United States, South America, and parts of Europe—will get to witness the moon obscure the sun. The last time the United States saw an eclipse like this was 1979; and if you’re planning on catching it, be sure to grab some fashionable eclipse glasses to protect your eyes!
Of course, an event this massive has to have some sort of astrological significance. In the past, solar eclipses were considered a bad omen for royalty, because the Sun’s rays were covered by the moon. Because the Sun and the king were usually synonymous, a solar eclipse was thought to be a sign that the king would kick the bucket … Not exactly a good thing.
Now, the United States doesn’t have a king, per se. But we certainly have a ruler—and many astrologers predict that this solar eclipse will rock President Donald Trump’s world in some sort of way. More should be revealed in the six months following the eclipse.
According to Dark Star Astrology, this Leo Solar eclipse is mostly about helping others. We might feel more energized and called to action. This is also a time to show your true self to the world—be brave, and come roaring out into the open like a lioness! Be yourself, beautiful, and you’ll be rewarded with lots of interest and opportunities.
One thing to note: You might get a little extra attention during this time from surprising sources who don’t have your best intentions at heart. Don’t fall prey to flatterers and inauthentic people—they’ll stroke your ego a bit, but in the long run they’re bad news. Keep your true friends close, and don’t get distracted by shiny new friends … they’re not worth it.
