The solar eclipse on August 21, 2017.


The eclipse will occur at 28 degrees of Leo. Mars is in divergent connection with the luminaries, in the partile sextile with Jupiter and in a wide trine with Saturn and Uranus.


Situations, both globally and in an individual context, which will be affected by this eclipse, will have a dramatic development. The consonance aspects give hope for a positive and even exalting outcome, if the general course of events will allow this. Otherwise, we can observe a bloated military super-ego with all the attendant consequences. In an individual context, this is a great energy upturn and a good opportunity to satisfy the desire for power and realize one’s ambitions.




An excursion into the past according to the series of eclipses of Saros series 140 and 145


The previous 21st eclipse of Saros 145, on August 11, 1999, was widely covered by astrologers. The dissonant configurations of this eclipse became the subject of great anxiety among astrologers regarding humanity’s destiny. The famous 72nd quatrain of Nostradamus is devoted to this eclipse.


Two days before the eclipse, Vladimir Putin came to power in Russia. On August 16, 1999, five days after the eclipse, he was confirmed as chairman of the Government by 233 votes of the deputies of the State Duma.


The main events of 1999 according to the Assosiated Press news agency:


1. The developments in Kosovo, the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, the deployment of peacekeeping forces in Kosovo.

2. US President Bill Clinton was not removed from office as a result of the impeachment.

From the database of POF (Russia)

The main world events in 1999, according to Russians were the war in Yugoslavia (13%) and the war in Chechnya (7%), as well as terrorist attacks that swept through Russian cities, especially apartment bombings in Moscow (9%). The price increase (inflation, impoverishment of the population) - 2% was in third place.


We can find more details on the series of the eclipses of Saros 140 and 145, going back a few cycles:

·         1945 is the most well-known year, the solar eclipses on January 14 and July 9, 1945;

·         The capitulation of Germany, and the end of the Second World War in Europe;

·         The Potsdam Conference of the victorious countries. Winston Churchill loses the elections in the UK;

·         The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (on August 6 and 9, 1945);

·         The beginning of the Cold War.


The 20th eclipse of Saros 145 on July 31, 1981: the path of the total phase of the eclipse miraculously stretched almost across the entire territory of the USSR. This has only occurred once.

On July 29, 1981, Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer were married.

Subsequently, Princess Diana perished the day before the solar eclipse of 1997. Upon learning of Princess Diana’s death on September 1, Mother Teresa said, I do not always understand God’s paths. Probably, this tragic loss means much more than we can imagine. Mother Teresa herself died a few days later, before Diana's funeral.

This is just a quick glance at the series of eclipses of Saros 140 and 145, but they point to the theme of war and peace and the follow-up world order, the nation’s chief executive, the redistribution, and the transfer of power or the loss thereof.
