The long awaited Total Solar Eclipses, also known as the Great American Eclipse is days away, occurring at 10:16 am pacific time on Monday, August 21, 2017. The Moon will totally eclipse the Sun’s rays, casting a shadow upon the Earth and will last up to 2 minutes and 40-plus seconds in places.
Total Solar Eclipses occur every year or two or three, often in the middle of nowhere like the South Pacific or Antarctic. What makes the Aug. 21 eclipse so special is that it will cut diagonally across the entire United States. As I mentioned last week, an eclipse of this nature has not been visible in this way in the United States since before 1776. While this Eclipse will be felt around the world, the energy will be felt in full along the lines where the Eclipse can be seen in totality.
Any New Moon, which we experience once a month, is an opportunity to wipe a slate clean and start anew. It’s an ideal day to launch new endeavors and to change what you feel has become old, tired and outmoded. But this New Moon carries extra electricity and speed. It is not only a Eclipse, but a TOTAL Eclipse, which energetically speaking is similar to a New Moon on steroids, with enough juice for breaking records of personal and collective impact..
On the day of the Total Eclipse, the Sun and the Moon in Leo are forming a Grand Fire Trine with Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries, serving as a catalyst for electric change that can be sustained.
Uranus, the planet governing radical change, is in Aries and apart from being an integral facilitator for helping you manifest the breakthrough you need, Uranus is also squaring Venus in Cancer, which can create an added push of discomfort as the unexpected may surface and surprise.
However, Mars, the ruler for Aries, is in Leo and combining beautifully to Jupiter, energizing a NATURAL COURAGE with a keen compass and a spirit of optimism for your journey ahead,
Set your intentions this week, starting with what you can do to make this a better world and this cosmic blast will have your back!
