The total solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 will streak directly across the United States. An eclipse always portends great change but the effects do not hit like a cyclone. They are, however, like ripples on an ocean, gradually forcing changes as they slowly spread. The idea that an eclipse is some sort of cosmic thunderclap is misguided. You won’t suddenly receive and infusion of solar energy the moment it begins. Still, we cannot deny the stunning transformation and even upheaval caused by a solar eclipse.
An eclipse amplifies the energy of the planets in its path for a period of one to three years after it happens. This is why it is so important to know where the eclipse will occur in your chart. For instance, in my case, it will be over my natal Pluto, causing me to face continuing issues of empowerment and transformation. If over Mercury, your communication and socialization skills will come into focus, etc.
There is no doubt the power of this eclipse. First, it comes right over the United States, so we cannot escape the impact. During the eclipse, the Sun will be in the sign it rules, fiery Leo. The Moon, of course, will also be in Leo, since an eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth. Add to the mix the fact that Mars, the ruler of aggressive Aries, will also be in Leo and conjuncting both of these bodies and you see the power of this event. However, there one more placement will infuse this eclipse with phenomenal energy. It will take place very near the star Regulus, the brightest star in the constellation of Leo and one of the brightest stars in the entire night sky. It will happen right at the heart of Leo the mighty Lion.
