August 2017 eclipses
This month we enter the eclipse season again with a lunar eclipse at 15 degrees Aquarius on Monday 7th followed by a total solar eclipse at 28 degrees Leo on Monday 21st. The latter is being called 'the great American eclipse' as its path crosses the USA from Oregon in the west to South Carolina in the west.
Download the charts of the two eclipses, together with charts of the UK and USA, and the US president, who will be having the solar eclipse very close to his Mars/Ascendant.
Click here for an excellent animation of the eclipse path, also showing that it will be a substantial partial eclipse across most of the USA away from the path of totality in the above diagram.
In case you need reminding, this shows the mechanics of how a solar eclipse occurs.
President Trump (do those words really make sense together?) was born on a lunar eclipse. He currently has transiting Saturn on this eclipse, conjunct his Moon opposite his Sun. He is just passing a Jupiter return. The star Regulus in his chart is conjunct his Ascendant and hence hit by the eclipse as well. Click here for a discussion of the nature of Regulus.
