Its path of totality goes
right across the United States from coast to coast, starting from
Oregon in the West to South Carolina in the East. This eclipse has
been on the radar for both astronomers and astrologers for years and
has been dubbed 'The
Great American Eclipse.'
The effects of solar eclipses can start to be noticeable months prior and up to 6 months later, however, its influences and results have long term significance. I will be writing another article on this eclipse touching on more about what it means for us as individuals.
This article is addressing its potential influence on geopolitical matters.
Eclipses always occur when the New Moon or Full Moon is in close proximity to one of the two Lunar Nodes. The North Node of the Moon is in Leo which means there is new beginnings and a push towards this sign.
The South Node is in
Aquarius, which represents where endings are trying to be
facilitated associated with that sign as well that are getting in
the way of fulfilling the North Node in Leo.
The Lunar Eclipse that
occurs prior on August 7th in Aquarius near the South
Node also emphasizes the 'past' energies wanting to be shifted.
When we look at what is
Donald Trump and his style of
governance is representing the Leo energy while most of the other
Western leaders/countries (which have been US allies) who are
globalists represent the Aquarian side.
For example, the US has
been the largest contributor to NATO, the military alliance that
protects Western Europe and North America. Also, the country has
also been suffering financially due to trade imbalances with other

as well which is currently underway.
countries and Saturn is a restricting and redefining influence which
is why we have been seeing conflicts around immigrants and refugees
coming into Western countries and Trump's muslim ban.
This Solar Eclipse is
Aligned with Regulus and Trump's Astrology Chart
It is the 'heart of the
Lion' in the
Leo constellation and is associated
with leaders, rulers, and traditionally being referred to as the
'star of kings.' Donald Trump was born when Regulus was rising,
which is also aligned with his Mars which traditionally is
associated with strong military leaders.
Traditionally, when there would be an eclipse like this aligned with Regulus or a similar type of star, it could mean a significant change regarding a leader or 'king', and in some cases a downfall or symbolic death.
At that time Bill Clinton admitted to having sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky and his impeachment process was underway in the months following.
This echoes what is currently currently going on with lots of talk around impeaching Donald Trump. The 'Great American Eclipse' is also part of a series of connected eclipses, called Saros Series 145.
The years that these eclipses take place usually correlate with the fall of a leader:
Uranus will also be making a tough square to Donald Trump's career ruling planet which could also indicate potential impeachment or other major disruptions or changes around his role of President.
Also, considering that his Mars is being activated this indicates that he may go to 'war,' either domestically with the people trying to bring him down and/or perhaps even with another country.
Saturn and Uranus are also in a trine with Mars that is loosely aligned with this eclipse.
This could also indicate
some sort of military action or upgrade.

Symbolically this could represent the sharp division between the US citizens that has been brewing since the rise of Trump
In October 2016, I personally
predicted that Trump was going to win the election because of this
'dividing pathway' while also considering the alignment with his
chart and Regulus.
Trump supporters would likely revolt towards the political establishment which could potentially lead to civil unrest that could potentially escalate into a civil war.
Pluto is the planet of secrets, power, manipulation, as well as transformation, death and rebirth. Capricorn is associated with government as well things like business and banking.
Therefore to put it simply:
The last time Pluto was in Capricorn was from 1762-1778 and at the end of that time period the US Declaration of Independence was signed and the US was birthed.
All of this occurred during the American Revolutionary War in which the colonies were in a battle with an oppressive and troubled Britain.
This period marked significant new beginnings as the US would eventually become the leading country of the world, taking Britain's place. However, with this edition of Pluto in Capricorn, the US is now the troubled and oppressive power.
Over the years since it started, a lot of disappointing secrets have been revealed due to,
This has created a dissatisfied population which led to the election of Trump.
However, as Pluto's influence is growing stronger, Trump also represents the 'abuse of power' qualities of Pluto as well.
This eclipse, which
strongly influences the next 6 months, is triggering this energy.
During this 6 month window of time, Saturn will enter Capricorn on
December 21st (winter solstice) and will stay there for
approximately 3 years.
This could manifest as a
major recession and economic downfall which may even start earlier
then December, building up slowly after Saturn ends its retrograde
on August 25th.
This is the same year
that Pluto ends its passage through Capricorn and it will also
coincide with other astrological aspects/cycles that suggest this
will be the period in which the new beginnings will start to take
A lot of changes are underway, not just in government, but also,
