Solar eclipse August 21, 2017: predictions of the astrologer

On the evening of August 21 (more precisely, at 19:48 Moscow time) a solar eclipse will occur (the sun disappears for three minutes, until 21:21). Should I worry and how to properly meet an eclipse, says astrologer Alexander Shepherd.

A bit of history

In antiquity, people prepared for eclipses in advance and were more afraid of solar eclipses than lunar ones. The time when the sun disappears from the sky, it was considered very important, mysterious and dangerous. Ancient amulets with the image of a dragon and notches have survived to our days, making it possible to calculate the arrival of the next eclipse with an accuracy to a day using a certain algorithm. This can be called the high technologies of antiquity, which are really impressive!

I do not want to frighten and escalate. Indeed, on the eve of eclipses, many of the events that took place became fateful, but, it is necessary to make a reservation, not necessarily with a negative tint.

On the eve of the solar eclipse of August 9, 1896, gold was found on the Klondike River in Alaska.This gave impetus to the development of the United States, and in the Russian lexicon the word "Klondike" remained as a synonym for unexpected wealth.

Before the eclipse of August 1, 1943, Benito Mussolini resigned; on August 2, the Japanese wounded the future president of the United States, then lieutenant of torpedo boat John F. Kennedy, and on August 5 in Moscow the first salute was given in honor of the victory of the Soviet army in the Great Patriotic War.

The African events of July 31 - August 4, 1962, during the eclipse, led first to the arrest of Nelson Mandela, and then to his triumphant political career, and gave impetus to the rise of the women's movement throughout the African continent.

In August 1980, Belgium was divided into three provinces, and after the eclipse of August 14, a strike began in Poland, which launched the Solidarity movement, which led to a subsequent change in the socio-political life of the countries of Eastern Europe.

On August 9, 1999, on the eve of a solar eclipse on August 11, Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin, for the first time, introduced the country to the future President of Russia Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin.

And now from the history we turn to the recommendations for the current days.

From August 20 to August 22 (especially on August 21, from 20 to 23 hours) I advise you to pay attention to your health, do not overeat, be careful with alcohol and try to rest more.At the very moment of the eclipse - although observing the grandiose natural phenomena, no doubt, it is interesting - it's better to lie down, so it will be easier for the body to re-arrange itself for new planetary rhythms. The symbol of the coming eclipse will be Prometheus, a man with a torch, so be careful in handling fire.

The time of any eclipse is characterized by increased nervousness. Be careful on the roads, be delicate and careful in communication. In addition, the current eclipse in the zodiacal sign of Leo near Mars will increase the negative impact on the work of the cardiovascular system and cerebral circulation. During the eclipse, I recommend that you postpone all important matters if you are not sure of their success, since you can "lay" an unfavorable cycle for as long as 19 years! But if you are full of strength, you are accustomed to take risks and are confident in yourself, go ahead. Especially since the current eclipse occurs with favorable planetary combinations.

The coming eclipse will be best seen over the territory of the United States, and in our country only the inhabitants of Chukotka will be able to see it, and in part. Do not be afraid, a solar eclipse is a common phenomenon and does not foretell any apocalypse.

And as a bonus: if you put on jewelry with amber, emerald or gold in a solar eclipse, the Sun will help to attract good luck in business, including love affairs.
