On August 21, 2017 a total solar eclipse will occur. The eclipse will cover the United States from coast to coast. This eclipse has been nicknamed the “Great American Eclipse” by astronomers and astrologers alike.
All eclipses have an effect on everyone on the Earth, but it is said that the place on Earth where its totality occurs is said to experience the eclipse’s indications more strongly.
This eclipse will occur in the sign of Leo, a fixed, fire sign that is regal, protective, proud and brave. The sign of Leo has often been associated with leaders and kings. Our kings and leaders can be strong, brave leaders or they can be arrogant, egotistical tyrants.
This eclipse is in a favorable aspect, trine, to Uranus in Aries. This introduces themes of freedom, separation and independence into this eclipse. This can bring us increased intuition and bring ideas we hadn’t previously considered.
The planet Saturn, currently in the sign of Sagittarius is also trine to the eclipse. This brings a more grounding energy and helps us to restructure our ideas about our leaders and how we lead in our own lives (particularly wherever you find the sign of Leo in your chart).
