How to View the Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017


Are You Prepared for The Great American Eclipse?

For such a rare once-in-a-lifetime event as the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21, 2017 I was glad to receive a heads-up from astronomer Brian Ventrudo that a handy and informative e-book How to See the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse: A Practical Guide for the First-Time Eclipse Watcher is now available on Amazon for free download if you order by May 23rd! Brian co-authored the Guide along with Manish Panjwani.

Yes, I have downloaded it and appreciate its details of the August eclipse which conjoins royal Regulus (Tropical Zodiac). In Astrology, an eclipse 'hitting' a star ramps up the potential for earthly events to occur on the physical plane. For as David Ovason writes in his book Eclipse,

"If an eclipse hits a star or a planet, node, or angle" (as this eclipse does for Donald Trump--his 29Leo Ascendant, Regulus (00Virgo), and nearby Mars (26Leo)--"the influence can be explosive and extraordinary." It seems there's more drama ahead for the Leonine Mr. Trump though given his tendencies toward scandal, publicity, indiscretion and chaos, we don't actually need Astrology to tell us that, do we?

Well, be that as it may or may not be for his nibs, we all want be prepared for August 2017 Solar Eclipse watching, an eclipse that 'splits' America from West Coast to East, Oregon to South Carolina and promises to still the tweeting of every bird in its shadow. Perhaps even Mr. Trump will be stunned enough to forget to tweet!
