On August 21, 2017 There is a total solar eclipse at 28 degrees and 53 minutes of Leo. What is most significant is that the path of totality crosses the entire United States from the West coast state of Oregon to the East coast of South Carolina. This indicates that The US will be heavily impacted by the astrological effects of this eclipse, especially in locations on or near the path of totality. This eclipse is conjunct Regales, the brightest star in the constellation of Leo. and is closely linked to the transition from The Piscean age to the Aquarian age as is the Pleiades. Regales and the Pleiades are both aligned with the plane of the ecliptic and in perfect square (90 degree angle) to each other. Alcyone the central star of the Pleiades cluster is only 10 minutes of a degree from an exact square to Regales. When, due to precession, Alcyone enters tropical Gemini and Regales enters tropical Virgo we have most intense time of transition from the age of Pisces to the Aquarian dispensation. This eclipse is exactly trine to Uranus and loosely trine Saturn.
Mercury turns direct on September 5, at 28 degrees and 26 minutes of Leo while exactly conjunct Regales and the August 21, 2017 eclipse, conjunct Mars and exactly trine Uranus at 28 degrees of Aries. Mars occupies 27, 28, and 29 degrees of Leo between August 31, and September 10, 2017. The combination of all these factors involving The August 21, 2017 total Solar Eclipse, Regales, Mercury turning direct, and Mars that are exactly to less than a degree conjunct in Leo with all of them exactly trine Uranus in Ares, has powerful implications. By late November and early December transiting Saturn in Sagittarius reaches 28 degrees and trines 28 degrees of Leo and exactly trines Uranus, still at 28 degrees of Ares. All of this grand trine activity in the last degrees of the Fire signs has immense possibilities for enlightened planning and decisions, followed by effective organized timely action. Because of the trines to Saturn and Uranus This extremely powerful configuration has immense positive potential for brilliant strategic planning in providing the essentials of life in emergency situations, scientific and engineering breakthroughs, as well as in more intellectually and spiritually advanced social, economic, and political organization. The late Summer and fall are the most likely time for serious global economic collapse to set in, especially if by that time Nibaru is obvious in the sky for all to see.
On August 13, 2017 transiting Mercury turns retrograde at 11 and 1/2 degrees of Virgo. Mercury turns direct at 28 degrees of Leo, as described above, on September 5. Mercury regains 11 Virgo on September 19 completing the Mercury retrograde cycle. Virgo is about organization and efficiency in managing practical details. This Virgo-Leo Mercury retrograde cycle, is when all the glitches, compounding inaccuracies, unjustified assumption’s, misdiagnoses, and etcetera can cause systemic breakdown in communications, industrial, medical, and military systems. from turning retrograde to going direct is damage control. from turning direct to resuming the same position Mercury turned retrograde at is recapitulation. This Mercury retrograde period will slow down communications, planning and decision making until the glitches are corrected and dysfunction eliminated.
Important astrological line up ups and especially eclipses leave a lasting holographic imprint on the ethers that can be triggered by later transits and configurations in the same manner that a birth horoscope is. Mars at 20 degrees of Leo is closely trine Saturn at 21 degrees of Sagittarius on August 21 the day of the eclipse itself. This is a highly effective influence for getting practical thing accomplished because it encourages the use of energy (Mars) in a practical efficient (Saturn) way. The Mars-Saturn combination has a bad reputation and so do eclipses. The Mars-Saturn combination has a very powerful and effective good side and eclipses can also be used in a constructive positive way.
On the eclipse date of august 21 Jupiter at 20 degrees of Libra weighs in with close orb sextiles to Mars and Saturn while conjunct the Mars-Saturn midpoint. In the last week of September transiting Jupiter in 27 degrees of Libra is exact opposition to Uranus at 27 degrees of Ares.
