Week of August 14, 2017
We are currently sitting between two important eclipses this week. Last week began with a lunar eclipse and next week we will see what is being billed as the Great American Eclipse. Both are important, but the solar eclipse next week has far-reaching implications for the United States and its leaders. As mentioned last week, lunar eclipses tend to draw on our emotions, whereas a solar eclipse tends to shine a light on something important that requires our attention. With this eclipse crossing the the middle of the entire United States it appears as if we are in for a revelation. When we glance out at the political landscape and the pace at which events are unfolding we can easily recognize the potential for such a revelation. This is how astrology works. It serves to reflect our lives through the context of cycles. Cycles recur and the symbolism is real and pertinent to the time in which they appear. Solar eclipses such as the one occurring next week often focus on highly visible world leaders and events associated with them. It is not a hard stretch to imagine how this eclipse might do just that.
Both of these eclipses are influenced by the conjunction of the Sun and Mars at the same time. Mars is the fiery warrior and when the Sun cojoins it aggression and often anger are prominent. To complicate matters even further Mercury stationed retrograde on the 12th of August and that can easily complicate any and all forms of communications. With so much talk about “fake news” this influence can easily shift that dialog in the most unusual and uncanny manner. Of course on the positive side, a retrograde can also allow us room to revisit past decisions and arrangements. Might we be looking at the shape of the world through revisionist eyes this week? Quite possibly. Another likelihood is an exposure of details that may have been overlooked or ignored that are now brought out into the open causing a reversal of opinion and trajectory.
