The Monday 21st August 2017 eclipse is a big event in astrology. How will it affect the world? And how will it affect you? These are the rules.
Eclipses Bring Cover-Ups
On a total solar eclipse, the Moon covers the Sun. The sky becomes dark. Thus, we are left in the dark and there is always a cover-up. The affected country, in the path of an eclipse, is where a big truth will always be concealed. In France on August 11th 1999 where the total eclipse was visible (some flew on Concorde to watch it), we saw one of the most notorious cover-ups in history during the Tour de France. American cyclist Lance Armstrong won on July 25th, only to have the cover-up about his doping revealed 13 years later. In 2012 he was disqualified from that victory and banned for life from the Olympics. The world found out that Lance Armstrong was the ringleader of ‘the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.” (United States Anti-Doping Agency). It took years for the truth to come out about the August 1999 cover-up.
What Cover-Up Can We Expect on 21st August 2017?
America and Britain are in the spotlight on this eclipse. Both countries will experience a cover-up at this time. The United States will see a complete blackout or total eclipse. Britain will have a slight partial eclipse, seen in parts of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland from around 7.35pm on August 21st.
We can anticipate a cover-up involving hospitals, medicine, pharmaceutical companies, doctors and health insurance on August 21st 2017. The eclipse falls during Mercury Retrograde in Virgo, the sign which rules the body. This is about Obamacare, and Trump’s GOP health care bill. In Britain, it is about the N.H.S. Mercury rules paperwork, media releases, computers and hacking. Mercury Retrograde coincides with misinformation, delays and chaos. Virgo has always ruled illness. Be aware in August. Ask hard questions. We’re going to see important headlines about our health and medical care in August 2017. Keep pushing to find out more, because nobody in Great Britain or the United States is being given the full story, according to all the rules of astrology and history.
Eclipses Always Bring Back the Past
Eclipses which trigger old horoscope patterns in our past also offer flashbacks. That is why the August 21st 2017 eclipse will take us back to cover-ups involving the death of Princess Diana and the 2016 U.S. Election results. You can find out more about that here, in a story I wrote back on 17th August 2016, about one year in advance of the eclipse.
The Eclipse and Your Personal Birth Chart – Do You Have Horoscope Factors at Leo 27, 28, 29?
If you have personal birth chart factors at Leo 27, 28, 29 then matters relating to pregnancy, babies, children, young people as a whole – and lovers – will be covered up in August 2017. Leo rules the Fifth House in your astrological chart and this is the horoscope zone associated with sexual relationships, and the younger generations who come after you.
You may be hiding information or others may be withholding it. There may be a genuine blind spot; you or others miss the facts, or the truth of one issue is just not available. For this reason if you do have Leo 27, 28, 29 factors you may prefer to avoid judgement or action across the eclipse period – allow August 20th, 21st, 22nd for the world to catch up with itself. Typical examples would involve a new love affair. Your child’s education. A teenage sports team. An adoption application.
Leo and the Fifth House rule courtship, sex, children (both in and out of wedlock), IVF, termination, fertility, parents, godchildren, grandchildren, nieces, nephews – and classically, any activity which brings adults and children together. So we associate it with Boy Scouts and cycling. Harry Potter and Beatrix Potter.
If you have Leo 27, 28, 29 degree asteroid, planet or other placements (you can become a Premium Member if you don’t have your chart, and pick one up now) then this Leo pattern is an ongoing story for you in 2017 and 2018. Why? We are seeing a lot of planets pass Leo 27, 28, 29 and trigger major choices for you over a two year period.
YOUR LEO 27, 28, 29 FACTORS AND THE WORLD OF LOVERS OR YOUNG PEOPLE
If you have that Leo chart signature affected by the August 2017 eclipse, there is a long narrative unfolding in your life. The story began in May 2017 as the North Node passed Leo 27, 28 and 29. It will be picked up again near July 24th, 25th as Mercury passes those spots. Mercury Retrograde is at large, though, so please wait for this story to be rewritten or replayed when Mercury crosses back to 27, 28, 29 Leo from September 1st to 10th. You may think you are seeing the issue with dazzling clarity when the Sun passes 27, 28, 29 Leo on August 20th, 21st, 22nd but remember – that ‘new beginning’ with the New Moon is happening across an historic eclipse. You may be left in the dark. Have a blind spot. Experience a cover-up job. Be faced with shadowy information. Find the facts obscured. All is not as it should be, on an eclipse. Wait until it’s over, to judge.
This mid-year period is really important in terms of lovers, pregnancies, babies, children, young people.Venus crosses Leo 27, 28, 29 on September 18th, 19th, 20th and Mars crosses that spot on September 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th. I think the real story for you, if you have these placements, is going to be a deep change in 2018, in the balance of power between yourself and him, her or them. Why? Ceres crosses Leo 27, 28, 29 on June 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th 2018.
If you are curious about Ceres hit search or please pick up your ebooks to read all about this powerful dwarf planet, if you are a Premium Member. An eclipse is neither negative nor positive. It depends on the rest of the chart. It is, however, always about what we can’t see – and don’t know – and that is why pro astrologers always tell you to wait, wait, wait for an eclipse to pass.
