August Total Solar Eclipse

jbuss Astrology

It’s definitely not too soon, and may be a bit late, to Plan to attend the 21 August North American Total Solar Eclipse.  You probably want to PIAVA your attendance as well as Plan it.  A Total Solar Eclipse is a Lifetime-Quality-Amazing, Life-Changing event, even though it lasts only 2-3 minutes.  I still have a vivid memory of the one I was lucky enough to attend in 1979, and I’m Planning to attend this one.  Darkness falls before it gets to Europe or Africa, so it’s visible only from the US and the two adjacent Oceans.  The 45-mile-wide Path of Totality, starting at 10:15am PDT, takes about two and a half hours to cross Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, southern Illinois, western Kentucky, Tennessee, and South Carolina.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
