The Solar Eclipse August 21 2017 falls at 28º Leo decan 3. This is the big one, the Solar Eclipse on one of the royal stars of Persia, Regulus. The famous fixed star in the heart of Leo the Lion. The Sun in mundane astrology signifies the ruler of the country. Eclipses used to be feared as being an omen for the death of a King as the Moon blots out the Sun’s glorious rays. In this case, the Moon will cast a shadow over Donald Trump’s yellow mane because he happens to have Regulus rising in his birthchart, and it is conjunct his Mars too! The Solar Eclipse August 2017 is very important for the American people, as not only does it directly impact their leader, but it will be visible across the whole of the United States. (For the first time since 1979.)
More than 90% of the Sun will be covered in Washington DC, the throne of world power. Like it or not, decisions made in the White House have a huge effect on the rest of the world. (Even if the President himself is limited in the scope of his own power) “The Royal Stars… were also believed to govern events in the world. Major disasters, breakthroughs, and historical phenomenons were seen as caused by the stars… When the stars were aligned accordingly, favourable conditions followed, and when they were negatively aligned, disaster was predicted. Because Regulus was the most influential of the Royal Stars, events that took place while Regulus was in dominance were amplified and grave, foreshadowing destruction.”
In the case of the Solar Eclipse August 2017 I would say the alignment is quite positive, however, you could say that a Solar Eclipse in of itself is ‘negatively aligned’ due to the Moon blocking the Sun’s power. Therefore this Solar Eclipse could have a malefic effect on leaders or elites who connect with it, as Trump does. It will be interesting to test out this eclipses effect as it plays out over the following 6 months.
Solar Eclipse August 2017 ~ Leo Decan 3
Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher, Eva Peron and Gandhi are great examples of the Moon in this decan. Therefore this Solar Eclipse August will bring formidable commanders to the fore in times of war, when life or death decisions need to be made quickly. The Moon adds a nurturing touch to the decan in general, but we still get tough-love. That means any leaders will have to risk making short-term, austerity measures or unpopular decisions for the sake of the long term prosperity.
A Leo decan 3 Solar Eclipse will not sugar-coat for the sake of popularity. In a sign that seems so ego-driven, it is surprising perhaps that this Solar Eclipse energy is actually more about helping others than itself (Especially now with Regulus in Virgo which is more about service to others). Much depends on the souls evolution of those touched by this eclipse. Harsh aspects from their own chart could twist the energy into a ruthless drive with tyrannical tendencies. Mostly the moon here is admired for generating great courage. Heads of nations, companies or family, become trail blazers and will do whatever it takes to protect those in their care.
The roaring lioness who protects her cubs is the most obvious symbol of this solar Eclipse. At the mundane level this is the great patriot willing to die for their country. It is certainly best to keep these natives as your friend and not an enemy! Loyalty is their number one demand, so woe betide you if you betray them. (especially those with Moon close to fixed star Alfard!) At worst, those touched by this powerful solar eclipse will suffer greatly if they stoop to revenge, and they won’t care who else they bring down with them.
