Viewers of past total eclipses talk of temperatures dropping while sunset-like hues cross a sky that deepens into a twilight blue. Stars brighten and planets come into view as nature goes quiet - animals and birds behave strangely, like they do at dusk.
From an astrological point of view, consider the following: It’s been 99 years since a total solar eclipse’s path of totality has spanned the entire continental United States as this one will. If you think about what was going on at this time in 1918, the Spanish Flu was raging and Word War I was at its height. Donald Trump was born on June 14, 1946, during a lunar eclipse. In astrology charts, Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Eun happen to have their planet Mars in direct opposition to each other, therefore, the eclipse falls on Trump's Mars and opposes Kim's Mars. Let’s see what, if any, consequences this has as the USA and South Korea commence their war games today, in the face of renewed threats from North Korea.
