Solar Eclipse

At 5:28 in the afternoon of Thursday, 17 August, a white Fiat van careered through Barcelona's crowded Ramblas mowing down pedestrians and killing 13 and injuring over one hundred. Eight hours later an Audi 3 sped through a populated area near the broadwalk of the seaside town, Cambrils killing one pedestrian and wounding five.

These were attacks perpetrated by ISIS. In all, citizens of 24 countries were among the dead and injured. Flags on government buildings, embassies and iconic landmarks flew at half-mast. Flowers and candles and other tributes continue to be placed at the sites of the attacks.

The following morning, market stalls were set up, shops opened and people returned to Las Ramblas as if nothing had happened. A courageous, defiant show of strength to be applauded, but what is so numbing is the understanding that such devastation is becoming commonplace. Attack by attack we are becoming inured to terrorism.

While the Jupiter-Uranus opposition flanking the MC-IC axis is redolent with the surprise, the ferocity and audacity of the attack, the signature on this dreadful event is the total solar eclipse set to occur on Monday, 21st.

Our hearts go out to all those who have lost their loved ones and those whose lives will never ever be the same again.

Well, this is it: the big one! The total solar eclipse in Leo, only to be seen in its totality across North America – hence its epithet: The Great American Eclipse. Not since June 1918 has a total solar eclipse covered only the length and breadth of the United States, and on that occasion the Bahamas were drawn in too. Many other parts of the world will be able to see the eclipse, but only partially; even so, it promises to be a spectacular event.

Starting at 9:06 am Pacific Daylight Time the moon will begin to cover the face of the sun and by 10:19 the sun will be obliterated save for the corona around its rim. By 11:41 it will all be over. Given that a solar eclipse is a new moon, the aura of new chapters is all over this eclipse. And while that is a positive prospect just how a new chapter comes about can be unsettling.

You’ve only got to witness a total solar eclipse and the awesome feeling it inspires when day becomes night in the space of 60 minutes to sense a certain foreboding about the event.America is experiencing a season of uncertainty with the captain of its ship something of a loose cannon. We might hope for a new era of positive political change but I believe we should prepare for an even bumpier ride.
