This is what this week leading up to the Solar Eclipse on August 21st feels like to me. How about you? There is so much to report that I will send out more than one newsletter about this auspicious Solar Eclipse occurring across the U.S.; the first one in 99 years to affect us this way. There are personal effects but I will begin with how it will affect the consciousness of our country. More to follow ~ Blessings, Mary
From Cathy Pagano
“This ‘Great American’ total solar eclipse has turned into an event, as only America can throw one. Millions of Americans are journeying to see this celestial show that stretches from Oregon to South Carolina. The Earth, Moon and Sun line up so well at totality that we’ll get a chance to see the Sun’s corona, it’s outer atmosphere. It will look like a black hole surrounded by iridescent, scintillating, delicate colors. And ‘day will become night’ as we see the winter constellations, usually hidden by our summer Sun as well as Regulus at the ‘heart of the Lion’, Mercury, Venus, Mars and perhaps Jupiter in the dark sky.”
“There’s a 70 mile area stretching across the US where the eclipse will be total for around 2+ minutes. Everywhere else in the US will experience it as a partial eclipse. The entire length of the eclipse will be about 6 hours. For more information about the eclipse and where to see it, go to GreatAmericanEclipse.com.
The United States is the only country this total eclipse crosses. And it’s the first total solar eclipse to pass over only the continental US since the country’s founding in 1776. It’s also the first time in 99 years that an eclipse is visible across the continental US.But more important, this eclipse opposes America’s Sibly 4th of July chart’s Moon at 28* Aquarius. The Moon symbolizes We the People (We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…) This is a chance for all of us to wake up to our unity, and our responsibilities to each other, to Mother Earth and to the future.
“It is the American People, not the government or the power structures, that this Leo Solar Eclipse calls to. It is our wake-up call to create that more perfect Union. Not only in America, but with the whole world. But first we have to be at one with ourselves. Only then will we stop living in fear and start moving toward hope. To do that, we have to listen to our heart’s truest desires. And then follow our heart’s hope into the future.” ~ Wisdom of Astrology
